My Book Presentation

This is my book presentation on Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. I made in on Windows Movie Maker. Hopefully this promotes you to read the book! The music is Hedwig's Theme by John Williams and Requim for a dream by Clint Mansell.


Last night we had another Netball trial to decide who would be in the top teams (Ngatea 1&2) I played GS and GA. This morning we found out what teams we are in, and I am in Ngatea 1! I am so proud of myself! Our team is really good as well, there is Charlotte, Sophie.M, Tia, Jesse, Alyssa, Coral-Lee, Helena and I! I can't wait for the season to start!

Wings sketch

I have just finished reading Wings, for my Mileage Book. It was a really cool story, and it kept me hooked the whole way through. I can't wait to read the next book in the series! I have created a sketch (Using Pimptheface.com) of the main character- Laurel. Laurel is a different girl, she only eats plain fruits and vegetables, and can hold her breath for ages. She later finds out that she is a Faerie!
Here is the sketch:

My character description- Voki.

For writing, we had to write a character description on one of the characters from our literacy book- End of the Alphabet. I choose the main character's mother- Tessie. Tessie is a very stressed and tired lady. I made a voki of her, and she is saying the first paragraph of my writing! It might take a while to load, so just wait!

My sketch for Art

This is my sketch of Sir Edmund Hillary that I did for art. I have also started creating a bigger version of this, which I will cut up into four pieces, and colour each piece differently, to create a pop art effect. But I haven't finished that yet. I am proud of my sketch, and I think I did a good job on it!

Camp 2013!


Last week was Taupo Camp!!! It was so much fun! The big trapeze at action world, rafting, mountain biking, rock climbing and skits! Our skit was super fun! It was awesome to act crazy! The only thing I didn't enjoy very much was orienteering because it was so hot, and getting up early! I am proud of making it to the top of the first rock wall I attempted to climb, even though my arms were stiff the next day....
A funny part of camp was the skit night, of course, and also when I fell off my mountain bike into a HUGE prickle. (Well, it wasn't funny at the time, but it is now!) Here are some photos from camp:

End of the Alphabet

Our reading group (The oreos) have finished reading the End of The Alphabet, written by Fluer Beale. We all thought it was such a fantastic book! It all kept us hanging. We had fun in the process, making brazillian chocolate cakes, Brazillian cheesy scones and Alphabet biscuits. We are also thinking of making a movie trailer on the book! How fun?

Food impact

I am in the Food Technology Impact group. Our task is to create a healthy food product that people can pick up and eat on-the-go. We are targeting busy people, people going to work, sports etc. I want to create a healthy drink. Sophie.M, Kennidy and I have also contacted Chelsea Winter, Masterchef NZ winner for 2012. We found her website, and sent an email to her, asking if she could maybe come down to Ngatea, or we go up to her, and she could give us some food tips! She hasn't replied yet, but I hope she does soon, it's going to be so exciting if we get to meet her!
