What: To show that learning never stops we have identified what we learnt in the holidays.
So What: What I learnt in the holidays......
In the holidays I learnt how to dig a tree out from the ground. First we had to move all the stones that were surrounding the tree, next we had dig until we got down to the roots, then we had to use the saw to cut through the small roots and for the big roots we used the shovel and we were hacking the shovel down on the big fat roots. Once we finished splitting the roots, not all of the roots we could get to, but what we did was tie a rope to the back of dad's truck then he hoped in and started going forward, but the truck didn't pull the tree out, but it made the tree lean to the side so we could see the extra roots that we couldn't get to before. So we cut through them with the saw and then just pulled the trunk then it came out.
What: To complete Hollywood or Bust,(drama) I have been preparing to be part of a stage challenge performance.
So what: In my stage challenge my characters name is Louie, the scene is set in a classroom, the problem in my stage challenge is there is an earthquake and the main characters are Charlie Licken, Narrater, Secret Squirrel, Miss Henny Penny, Louie, Rocky Locky, Lucy Loosey, Kirky Lirky, Lovey Dovey, Xander Gander, Lucky Ducky and Miss Buzzy Bee.What our group needs is to not laugh when the earthquake is happening.the name of our stage challenge is parody of Chicken Licken.
Now What: Something I need to work on is to learn my lines off by heart.
I'm "marching" home from school with bobby and John and were talking about some Haunted house. Bobby and John keep saying we should go inside and have a look, so I say "fine lets go in". As we stand outside the terrifying house I think to myself I regret wanting to go into this terrifying house.
I can see blood running down the side of the house, just looking at it is horrifying. I open the door,there's a clown standing at the top of the stairs holding an axe, whispering laa la laa la, and every time the clown whispers laa la laa la he crept down one step.
The clown gets to the bottom of the stairs and starts chasing me, then all of a sudden I see an axe been thrown over my shoulder " Wheew"! That was lucky. I loose him.
Bobby, John and I keep tiptoeing I hear a sharp cutting noise cutting through the walls as I hear a deafening roar in the background, I hear the floor boards creaking then a small scream, I think to myself? Am I really alone.
As I tiptoe down the dark, haunted hall, I walk into a spider webb I wipe it off my face and I kept shuffling, I look to my left and see a bloody hand print covering a portrait of Sir Edmund Hillary.
As I stroll further, all I hear is a very petrifying old clock ticking. I walk further and further down the dark freezing hall until I reach the end of the hall."THEN"! "All of a SUDDEN" An Anxious monster jumped out in front of me, I screamed and I ran. The monster started chasing me I was lucky that he or she were very slow, I got away.
I sit alone in the threatful dark haunted house mastering my fears.....

So what - First we chose an icon from our culture, then we drafted it in our topic books. After that we chose colours in 4 different ways, next we started our big copy we drew our icon in pencil first, then we started painting.
One of my punamus is in the correct colours (red and green). One of my other punamus is purple and yellow. I chose the punamu because I have one and I wear it alot.
Now what - If I was to do this again I would challenge myself and do a different icon.
