Farewell 2012

This year has been a fun year. I have learnt allot of new things like about film making and art.

I've had a lot of highlights this year and this is just some or them.  One of the highlights this year was camp because it was really fun, and we got to bond as a class more. I also got to get out of my comfort zone.
                                                                                                                                                                                          Another highlight has been all of the art this year it has been fun.  I liked the mosaics the best.  Also another highlight has been the first trip we went to which was the Ngati Toa Damian trip because that is where I meet most of my friends.
Photobucket Photobucket                                                                                                                                                                                   Some of my low lights this year have been speeches because i think they are pointless and I don't like speaking infront of people.  Another low light has been woodwork because I wasn't very good at it  and most the things I made failed.

I am very sad to be leaving  Tawa Intermediate, because that means I have to leave my year 7 friends behind.   I feel nervous as well because I'll be going to college and it is really big so I will probably get lost and wont know were I'm going.

Overall an awesome year.  Merry Christmas and happy new year!

13th of October was the day of my little sister Sienna's party at Chipmunks.  ''Great, I have to spend my day with a bunch of 5-6 year olds making sure they don't hurt themselves on the huge playground'' I think to myself as we were driving to to Chipmunks.  It wasn't long until we've reached chipmunks, my dad parks the car and we get out.

When we reach the door dad opens it and a wall of noise hits me, screaming, shouting, and crying all at once.  I look over and see the a huge slide and different play areas, it was the first time i have been here so i was surprised at the place.

we sit at a table that has a sign that reads, ''reseved for sienna's birthday party.'' We sit and realise that some of sienna's friends were already here and are playing at the playground. ''Go do your job and supervise them'' Dad Say's so i do what I'm told and and follow sienna to the playground, i  didn't really want to go through all the the little tunnels because i would feel a bit claustrophobic but i occasionally go through big ones.

After all the kids arrived they all played until i went around telling them it was  time to eat. We ate in party room 2 or 1  i don't remember, and when we are just about to eat cake a weird guy in a chipmunk suit comes in with a lady, ''if you sing happy birthday really loud charlie the chipmunk will dance for you'' Say's the lady, so when we begin to sing he starts to dance. i found him almost scary but the kids loved him.

The kids played more until there parents come to pick them up, the party finished at 2:00pm but one kids father didn't come till 3:00pm.

The party wasn't as bad as i thought, the kids were cute and funny, so my day wasn't that bad, but still, i have another party to go to and that was Zoe's sleepover.

Outlook For Some Day Reflection

In room 13 we have entered the outlook for someday movie compition,
my movie is called water poullition, I made It along with Renee, Lily, Be, and Ruby.
Our movie Is about a news show and the news show dose a report on water pollution, the news reporter crosses over to bubbles the fish, to interview some fish swimming about in the sea and what they think of water poullition.
Here It is:

 Reflection For My Movie:
Something that I learned from this project that I did not know before was that China dose the most damage to the ocean.
Process: I learned how to add the photos to the green screen
The part of this project that was the most challenging for me was finding coulors that I can use for my fish so It did'nt blend with the green screen.
The part of this project I found most rewarding was when we finished It
The thing I need to improve on the most is planning before my movie.
The thing I found that I am really good at Is face painting.
If I had to do another outlook for someday movie, the things I would do differntly are:
Planing before I start my movie.
Have more info in my movie.
Try to get my message more clear.

Art Splash

Yesterday I went to  Art Splash with the rest of the Tawa Intermediate drama academy.
If you don't know what Art Splash is, It Is a place were people perform drama or dance and it is also fun to watch aswell, we watched  some performances from different schools, I didn't get some of them because they were confusing but oh well.
When It was our turn to perform It was really fun, there were lots of mistakes but It was fine,
we got allot of laughs from the crowd and everyone really enjoyed them selves.
I hope I can perform there again one day.

Russian Fudge

In the weekend I had a go at making russian fudge, I liked making It because It was really fun,
I also found It easy. It tasted really yummy  But It had lots of suger which wasnt a problem for me but It was for my parents.

Here Is the recipe I used: (It Is from the chealsea suger website)


3 1/2 cups Chelsea White Sugar
125g butter
3 Tbsp Chelsea Golden Syrup
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt
200g sweetened condensed milk (half a standard tin)
2 tsp vanilla essence


Place all the ingredients except the vanilla, into a medium-heavy saucepan. Warm over a gentle heat until the sugar has dissolved about 10-15 mins. Bring to a gentle boil and cook for about 5-10 minutes, until it reaches the soft ball stage (120°C).

Remove from the heat and add the vanilla. Beat until the fudge is creamy and thick and has lost its gloss. Pour into a greased 20cm cake pan. Score the top and break into pieces when cold
