A letter to myself in thirty years

Dear Casey.

Is your nickname still Lizard? Do you still have blonde hair? Do you have a pet lizard? I am so sorry I am asking all these questions. But these are important, how you doing? Are you healthy? Where do you live? In the city? Or in the country? What city do you live in? What country? How are the little babies are they healthy? They better be, you know what mother said. Oh and what are their names again are they Rose and Lily the twins and what's the other ones oh yea Tom and jack.

Here are the jobs I would love you to have.

  1. A zoo keeper.
  2. T.v star.
If you have any other jobs they better have something to do with lizards. Here are a couple of things that I really love right now.
  1. Lizards
  2. MGP scooters
  3. Ice cream
  4. Friends
  5. Hanging out
And just relaxing.

Branches part one.

Part One


I am walking through a tunnel of branches, looking up at them every three minutes, making sure they won’t come down and grab me. Brrrrrr that was a cold wind. It felt like someone was breathing down my neck. So I turn around. A lot of rustling! Another indication that someone was following me! So I run, I run as fast as I can. through the tree tunnel and out into the open where my family was having a picnic.
"Did you get the juice?" mum asked.
"Y-y-yes I did" I made out at last.
"Good, are you all right cause you don’t seem all right" Mum said and she sounded worried.
"Mum of course I am alright it is just ------hey guys can you feel that ahhh what was that " I screamed.
"Well if my calculations are right then a thing called Hearse whisperer is coming soon cause a storm is how it travels” said Burto my brother.
“Um as I was saying before the storm hit mmm where was I? Oh thats right mum of course I am alright it is just---I got interupted by Burto who was saying “just get to the point already a storm is happening which is probably the Hearse whisperer AKA a killer”
“Ok, ok now where was I, oh thats right it is just that it felt like someone was following me and when I turned around there was a lot of rustling in the bushes,” I carried on from three minutes ago.
“Oh well you could have told us that before the killer came because that is really bad if that actually happened,” Burto replied worriedly.
“Of course it really happened do you think I am the kind of girl who says something really scary and then say oh no that was just a dream?” I said dramatically so that he thought twice about messing about with me.

Fireworks art

When Ms O'Kane came to our classroom to teach us we did some firework art and here is a picture of mine.

First you draw four dots on your page.
Next draw zig zag colours around the dots and do that to all your dots with snazzy colours. 
Now you die it with black dye and you end up with a firework sensation.

Pen pal letter


This is a photo of  some of the letter that my pen pal buddy Delaney sent me.

Production Diary. Five.

 Dear Diary 27/8/12

Why, why me why did I have to stuff up out of all the people in the production? OK I know what you want to know is what did I do so I will tell you. I didn't take my script because like I said before I learnt all my lines. Well it turns out that I don’t know them because I forgot one of them and I didn't have my script as a backup plan so I looked like a complete dork in front of the whole year 5 and 6:( .


Production Diary. Four.

Dear Diary 26/8/12

I have learned all my lines and I am really happy about that because now I don’t have to worry about taking the script to practise and don’t need to worry about forget. The production is next week and Miss Hill is running out of patience.

The scary poem!


This is me and Katherine recording ourselves saying the scary poem and here it is so you can read along as well I hope you like it.



There once was a lizard that traveled through a snow blizzard.
He would creep out at night to have a fight while you go to sleep he would go beep like an alarm clock, he will come in and undo lock.

There was a moan outside and groan inside. What will it be? Lets go out and see.
We walked out of the castle and saw his muscle, and he scrambled us like eggs, then he hung us on the washing line by our legs with pegs.

Once we got down he stood there with a frown. His friend behind him was acting like a clown.

The clown was so scary we said oh my god you are so hairy the clown was embarrassed and had a fit but the evil lizard hit him and told him he was being a wuss.

The friends went back into the castle when we heard a hustle and bustle within the castles walls. When we turned around we saw  a mouse and then he said get out of my house.
There was a vampire eating garlic we thought this was odd but then he saw us and he jumped up and bit us in the neck but before we died we said: “What the heck?”

Men's 100 metre sprint results.



Here is mine and Natasha's dot plot graph and it holds the results of the men's 100m finals.



A rock and a hard place.

THE START:

“It seems to me you are stuck between a rock and a hard place”, says my rugby coach.

I infer that the boy might be in a sticky situation at home or maybe at school, he might be getting teased or maybe he just doesn’t fit in. I also infer that his coach is trying to help him. I also infer that it is something to do with rugby.


THE END:

When I wake up in the morning, I realise my cat did have all the answers.

I can support both teams the SpringBoks and the All Blacks.

The Olympic torch!


I wait for John Key to light the Olympic torch. The crowd cheered hard out. Finally it is lit. I feel so proud as I hold the torch it has been my dream since I was a little kid. My eyes scan the crowd and there they are my family my little sister on my Dad’s shoulders and my Mum with the biggest grin on her face it makes me smile.Then when I stop smiling, well I can’t it is like it is stuck onto my face like a squirrel stuck to an acorn.


I look up and see a little dot and I think it is the next person. As I get closer I see that the person doesn’t have two legs it only has one and he carries a stick to help him walk, but I think to myself what sport he would be in he could be in swimming, he could be in any sport he wanted to be in...

“Hello hello is anybody home” I heard someone say.
“What” I replied, as I was awaking from my daydream. Finally I was awake and I saw the man with no leg. As I hand him the torch I hear him say ”can you please run with me and so we both can light the cauldron together”
“OK” I say back to him. “I would really like that.” It is a bumpy ride though because he only has one leg but it was really fun and exciting. When we got to the cauldron I help the man without a leg up the steps onto the platform where the cauldron is and he hands it over to a woman. She lights the cauldron, then everyone cheers!


The End!!!

The Great White Man Eating Shark!

Mr M read us a story but only half of the story and we had to make a ending for it and the story was The great white man eating shark. This is my ending for the story please read it and tell me what you think of it.




Mrs Scorpio was bobbing up and down in the waves harmlessly, until she was disturbed with a unwanted visitor and so she turned around to see who it was, when she turned around and she saw the dorsal fin of the great white man eating shark heading straight for her. She screamed and screamed but it was too late the great white man eating shark nipped her leg and it started bleeding. Then suddenly the sea around them turned red.


“AHHH!”  Shouted Mr Slim and everyone else as they hopped out of the water kicking and screaming. But Mrs Scorpio could not move because of the big gash in her leg that was bleeding hard out. But Norvin did not know about the shark although he could hear people screaming and so he went in the water so he could swim around the corner.


When he was around the corner he saw the shark and started to swim away from it, but the real shark was too fast and it had already seen him it was heading straight for him with her mouth right open and norvin was so scared he did something I would not like to repeat. But to Norvin's surprise the shark did not eat Norvin but she gave him a big sloppy kiss so they lived happily ever after. Well, Norvin did not but the shark did.

100 Throws and The Snail Race!!!

This is the one hundred throws game. What you had to do was get two dice and throw them one hundred times and as you were doing that you had to keep a tally chart. Then at the end you have to add all the tallies from one number and write the total and then you have to answer the questions and enter your results into the bar graph.  



This is me telling you about my results for one
hundred throws.





This is the snail race. What you had to to was well you had a sheet of paper and on there was 7 snails on it in an arrow shape. With 7 at the back and 12 and 2 at the front sort of. You roll two dice that go up to six on it and roll them and add them together and if it is a 7 you would move 7 one space. When you did that you had to answer. Watch the video above and see my results.

Alison turned to cycling in 2005 and has been in the New Zealand track team since 2006.She was fourth in the individual pursuit.London will be her second olympics after coming fourth in Beijing in the individual pursuit like I mentioned earlier.



In London she switched to the team pursuit and was teamed up with Jamie Nielsen and Lauren Ellis. My old brownie leader is a relation of hers and she asked her to come to our school and she did and showed us her helmet, her shirt, her bike, her sunglasses and things. It was really cool.

My fraction and decimal reflection!

Reflection for fractions and decimals!

· Something I was pleased with was how fast I learnt decimals because I thought they would be really hard but I got them in the end.
                            

· I really enjoyed learning fractions because they are interesting and they make you think with lots of fun ways to learn them.



· Something I found hard was when Mr Moriarty added different colored blocks into a tower and asked us what fraction they were.
· Something that made me think was decimals with the hundredths and tenths and ones Because I didn't really get them.


.    Something I want to get better at is decimals


   .     What can I do about it? practise practise practise makes perfect.





The green blocks are 3
                                      --
                                      9






This is a ten block tower and I am going to give you the decimal of each of the colours.
Blue: 0.1
Red:0.4
Yellow:0.1
Green:0.4
And that is how you tell fractions.

Oh thank you. Save your applause. I know I am awesome.

How to be a panda


How To Be A Panda from Kieren Moriarty on Vimeo.


Me and my friend Felicity made a video about how to be a panda. Hope you like it.

Buddy

Dear V.M Jones

My teacher just finished reading your great novel Buddy. I really loved it and I am sure I am speaking for the rest of the class. It had a lot of mixed emotions and it was touching some of the chapters were sad and some were happy and some were exiting. Oh I forgot, my name is Casey.

My favourite parts was when Josh\Buddy got a little puddy cat and it fell into the bath when it was trying to attack Josh’s toes and that is how it found its name. I also like the part where Suzane picked up Splash and cradled it like a little baby when it had knocked over the paint can and Suzanne was not angry at him and Josh was thinking wow is there another side to Suzanne that I don't know about.


My favourite characters were Chontel, Suzanne, Josh and Jake I like them because:

  1. Chantel is funny and quiet.
  2. Josh is a good brother to chose Jake over winning.
  3. Suzanne is like a ball of fluff and is very weird.
  4. Jake is a very outrages person even though he has special needs he believes in himself.

I love your book and hope you can write some more books like that and it would be exceptional if you could find time to visit our school Parkvale School New Zealand.

Your sincerely

Casey
