Step Up 3D

On Saturday I went to St Luke's and me and my brother and friend went to go and see Step up 3d.
We were 1 hour early so we played and kept going outside.
15 min later people started to come in and then the movie started.
The coolest person that danced I think was Moose and Robot.
At the end there was the final dance and it was the pirates vs samurai.
There were all about grown ups and there were also little kids that new how to do cool as tricks.
The pirates won $10000 so their home was not going to bust because they had $10000.

My Bunny

When I was turning 5 my dad said I could get a rabbit so I went crazy!. I first said where is it!  He said that I have to go and get the rabbit. I thought that I was getting him from the pet shop but I was getting him from the country. It took a while to get there but we made it. I thought it was rabbit heaven. I wanted a girl rabbit but they were too young to go home were so I had to pick a boy. I picked the one that I liked the most and took it home. When we got home I forgot I even had to name it so I thought of a simple name -Max.

Nudge and Tweet

We have classroom pets. We have 5 fish and 2 birds. The fish are numbered as Andrea says their days are numbered with her as their caregiver ! haha !

We also got given two birds from Mike and Miri, parents at our school. We love the birds and think it is very brave of Andrea to have birds since flying birds are one of her fears.

We get to take the birds home every weekend and Andrea takes them home in the holidays. 

Here are some pictures of Nudge and Tweet - our birdies !

The 90s

We have been learning about the 90s as part of our school's 100 year birthday.

Right now it is our school's Term 3 holidays so we won't be actively blogging but our teacher will be publishing some of our art work every other day to keep our site active and our visitors happy.

Here is Emily's picture of Che Fu. He is a local rap, R&B musician and had his start in the 90s with the band Supergroove. He left the band and went solo and his music is very cool. You can listen to his music here and read all about him and his beliefs.

Music lessons

Every Monday I have piano lessons . Well except for the holidays. My piano teacher is called Hillary. For me she is the best piano teacher in the world. Also, a long time ago I had my first piano teacher and her name was Jessica  - she was a very nice teacher. But she went to University so she didn't really come and that was a shame! So now Hillary is the best teacher in the world! Also I had a concert and I started on level 2! Hillary is great and I really like learning with her.

3 things that I like

Let me tell what 3 things i like. The 1st things are dinosaurs. I don't know why I like them so don't ask. My 2nd thing is a show. It is called Ben 10. I like this show because there is lots of good guys vs bad guys and lots of fighting . Last but not least a Nintendo game that is called transformers animated (tfa).There are lots of levels with a level that stress' the guts out of me. So now you know what three things that I like best.

My Thumb

I was quietly eating then I went to go and put my lunch box away. I was looking at the budgies and then SLAM!!!!!. My thumb was in the door ! It cut my thumb right through. It was in the door until someone finally opened the door and I came out with a bleeding hand.

The 90s

We have been learning about the 100 years of Grey Lynn School. Our decade was the 1990s. The students had to choose one things they learned from the 90s and use their thinking hats to showcase their learning. They got to choose how to share their learning.

Mia chose to make a slideshow using Kid Pix, Garageband for the voice over and iMovie as the editing tool.

Enjoy Mia's show and keep checking back to see what others have learned.

After that we had kfc for dinner because there was a kfc shop just across the road and there was a place with fish an chips but when we saw how much it was, it was too much money so we had KFC instead. by Willie

The tornado

On Friday the 17Th my brothers friend came around and I went on the computer then it started pouring down with rain and the wind was really strong so I went to my mum and talked to her for a while then I looked outside and I asked my mum where the trampoline was. She said it should be there and she came and looked and then she saw it on the 7 foot fence. Then I went to get Jonathan my brother and his friends. Then we all started laughing because it landed on the neighbors garage. So in the weekend my dad said he would get it down but he didn't so now our trampoline is still sitting on my neighbours garage.

Our last game.

On a rainy Monday our last Netball game begun. It started at 5.00. Heaps of parents came to watch how we played. Most of the parents don't really come on Mondays. The game started and I was off for the 1st and 2nd quarter. After the those quarters I was on. First I was Center and after Wing Defense. When I was center I wasn't allowed to step into the circle until my bib was on. I was shaking and not knowing who to throw to, when Emily said "pass it to me Jennifer" so I nodded back. When I was center the bell rang to change positions. So I did. Finally it was finished and we had hot chips as a team. Our Netball game delivered a very good message.

The big move

At the end of the year I'm moving to Queensland because my dad got a job at Bond university. I'm going to miss all my friends and my fish because I can't take them to Australia so either I'm giving them to a friend or making a pond in the backyard and sell them with the house. My cats are going to be looked after by my dads friends and when move into the big house they will send them over. When we leave we are going to stop at Canberra to have Christmas with my Nana and Grandad. I will miss all my friends but I have to move on.
