Lit Quiz 2013

Every year, there is a "Literacy Quiz" Where schools all over NZ compete.  The type of questions are things from books, for example "Who were the two tributes District 12 sent to the Hunger Games?" I am lucky enough to be in one of Ngatea Primary School's teams! The competition is up in Hamilton in May, and if you win that round, you go to nationals, if you then win nationals, you go to South Africa to compete! I will be reading all holidays, and training for the competition, I can't wait!

My Term 1 Highlights and Evaluation

This is my highlights and evaluation made on Window's live Movie Maker


This term I got 6 20/20's in my MDR, which I think is really good! My average score is around 18 or 19. I am really happy with these results, but I am on book 7, so I can't move up a book!
MDR stands for Maths Daily Revision, and every day we have 20 questions to complete, then we fill in our scores in the student record sheet, here is a photo of my scores!

PE Term 1-2

This week we started PE! There was lots of fitness involved, as we rotated around the hall doing different activities like sit-ups, planks, press-ups, skipping, squats, shuttle-runs and many more! We are continuing with this next term as well. Some of the activites I enjoy, like sit-ups and skipping, others can be quite hard!

"Show off" Learning.

As Academic Leaders, Jesse and I have started this thing called "Show off learning" where we choose some really good pieces of writing, art, book presentations, maths or anything to do with learning! We then put it on a presentation, and play it on the projector while everyone is working! My book presentation is on it, which I am really proud of!

Book Recomendations

Looking for a good book? Here are some I have read, and recommend them to you!

 End of the Alphabet, By Fluer Beale. I read this as a book club, but all of us really enjoyed it! It is about a girl named Ruby, who is always cooking, cleaning and looking after the kids for her family, until her friend tells her to get some "backbone" and stand up for herself! I rate this book a 9/10 because it always has a new and exciting problem, It was hard to put it down!
The Harry Potter series by JK Rowling. These books are good if you like fantasy and action! I love all of them, because every one brings a new problem, but at the very end, every book connects, and every secret is revealed, it is so exciting! I rate it a 10/10- it's that good!

 Dairy of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinley. These books are good if you feel like a good read on a raining Sunday. They are all really funny, and they even include pictures! It is written as if the boy telling the story actually wrote it, not Jeff Kinley! I rate it 8/10.


My Sister Jodie by Jacqueline Wilson. Jacqueline Wilson writes so many good books, and this is one of them! It kept me hooked the whole way through, and there is a very surprising ending!  I rate it a 7.5/10

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince trailer

This is my book presentation trailer on Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. My sister Kate, her friend Natalyha and I made this at my grandparents in Port Waikato. It is a spoof "mock" version of it! It was really fun to make, I hope you enjoy it!

The making of my (Second) book trailer!

Over the weekend, my sister, her friend Natalyha and I made a book trailer on Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, at my Grandparents house in Port Waikato. It was kind of a spoof, mock version of it, because most of the characters were girls! So instead of Harry Potter, it was Harriet Potter! And instead of Ron Weasley, it was Ronnie Weasley! We filmed in different locations around Port Waikato, on the river, in the toi toi bushes, inside, outside, everywhere!We got costumes from the Drama Department at the college, but we had no idea what Dumbledore should wear, so we got a white bath robe, a long white towel for the hair, and a white face cloth for his beard! It was extremely funny! We edited it using Corel Video Studio Pro. I am very proud of the result, it looks fantastic! I will try and post the video here soon!
