Today we made a spiral about our hope and desire. It was to put in a bottle to make a sculpture to put up in the viaduct. When we were ready Petelo came and asked us to come over to the hall. And then we put our artwork in the bottles by the help of Alice and Tina. After we played a game with Alice. She made us laugh.

My special place is Home. It is my special place because I can relax and enjoy the company of my family. Also It has a lot of good and bad memories. It is a very old place. My family lived there for nearly 20 years.
Without a home I will not know where my special place will be. It is a very special place to me. Home is a place my family and I belong. My home is the heart off the family.
Everyone in my family grew up in the same house. Sometimes People criticise my house. By saying its old and ugly. But I don't care because it holds all my childhood memories. One of my memories was when I was riding my bike down the hill in front of my house I went straight into the wall off the house.
A Lot of celebrations and gatherings have been held in my house. Everyone in my family has had their birthday in the family home. Even Christmas. Some people think my home is ugly, but thats not it. Its the love inside the house that makes it home.

The book i read today was called THE FEAR FACTOR. It was about a group of kids That joined a competition called fear factor. It was about the challenges they did and who scared they were to join. Some of them were going to chicken out but they didn't because they didn't want to be called a chicken. They were all scared off something. The characters are Carlo,Benji,Stace,Hari,Maddy,Pumpkin and Kylie. For my activity I had to put words in the correct place. And I had to Create a news paper. The website I was on is Sun-shine Online.

In room 7 we are learning about procedural writing. We were folwing the steps on how to weave a mat.First we cut the paper into strips that are 3 cm apart. Then we put black paper strips threw the coloured paper. It was really fun weaving the mats. After we finished everything Mrs Tui laminated or mat so that we can use it as a table mat.
Kindness is a virtue that everyone should practices. Also we use it in our everyday lives. Kindness is showing someone that you care about them. Or doing something to make them feel happy. Also it is showing love and compassion to others around us who are sad or needs your help.
If we did not have any kindness no one will listen to each other and also there will be a lot of violence in this world. And this world will be lonely without kindness. Kindness helps everyone feel connected to everything and everyone.You can practise kindness by looking around you and seeing if someone is not happy about something and talk to them about it.
On Friday we had a awesome assembly. Our virtue was Kindness. First we had a prayer then we presented our learn about kindness to the rest of the school. My group read a acrostic.

Today gospel was about when Jesus told his disciples about heaven. And that Jesus is the WAY the TRUTH and the LIGHT. And that he was going to make place for them in his kingdom. Also that If you see him you see the father. And that no one can come to the father except through Jesus. Also that he has done his job and returning back to the father.And that Jesus was the one that god wanted us to be like.

Do you have a best friend?
While I do. A good friend to me means a person who makes you feel important. Also they are supportive when you need them. Your good friend can be from school,community and other places.
Your good friend can be the person you were brought up with or from a different nation.Your good friend is the one that you hangout with most days. They also can make your feel happy. When you are in a bad time of your life. A good friend can help you when you're in a complicated situation.
Everyone has a good friend in this world and if you don't look around you and you will see your good friend. A good friend is someone who cares for everyone not just the people they like. Also when they go out into the community and helps people for example helping the disabled, help the elderly cross the road not just barging past them and ignoring that person.
Some good friends give back to the community. Also they things to pupils of the community. Knowing that they won't give back. Not giving and wanting something in return.
I have lots of good friends around me. They support me and help me like I would to my best and good friends.
When your angry your good friend makes you happy. Can be anyone. It could be Jesus it could be someone that lives far away from you. But you will always know who your good friend is.

My most happiest time in Rotovegas was finally getting to rotorua. the ride was so long and boring. Also It smelt very bad. it smelled because off the sopher That was my first time in rotorua. The first thing we did was driving around trying to look for our holiday home. We stayed there for 1 whole week.
My most boring time was on the way down to Rotorua. Because it was so hot and my sister was annoying me and i was starting to get angry.It felt like the ride was never going to end.
My fun part of my holiday was going on the luge. the luge is an awesome ride where you race down a steep hill in a kart that can fit one adult and toddler. You have to be 6 and up to ride down in your own kart. There are also 3 stages to ride the first one is could scenic the second one is intermediate and a the last and most thrilling one is Advanced.
I was so awesome I was speeding down the track like a racing car driver.
My sad part was leaving Rotorua. I was sad to leave Rotorua because I had so much fun that whole week and it felt like home.
