Week 8 GLS LIVE class reflection.

Week 8 GLS Live News reflection.
  • Some of our stories need to make more sense.
  • Talk a bit louder when recording so we can be heard.
  • Try and work faster so we can have more time to edit the writing better.
  • Good how we had jobs so we knew what to do. Now we work together.
  • Some groups ended up doing the same story.
  • Put our birds even further away so they don't chirp through our newscast.
  • iMovie Opinions: 
  • “ I think it was great because we told the story clearly.” Anetema
  • “Interesting that each person got to have a turn and it flipped really quick so it looked cool.” James
  • “ It was good but it needs more work on memorising the script and not look down.” Chelsea


Here it is......

Finally got it uploaded ! Whew ! What a mission.

My New Budgie

On the weekend I got a budgie named Sparkles. He is only a baby so I think he is zero. He is a bit chatty and one time he made a lot of ringing noises and it was are sleepy time so I tried to get some rest. He realised that it was night time. He was chirping so loud you could here it to the other end of the house to the other end. I love Sparkles.

New Zealand Children's Book Awards

We read two new library books last week during library time. They are both finalists in the New Zealand Children's Book Awards 2011.

The first book we really like is, "Baa, Baa Smart Sheep, by Marc Sommerset. When Andrea read this book we laughed out loud at all the funny bits - especially Turkey Lurkey and the fact that he was gullable.

Baa Baa Smart Sheep

You should pop into the library and have a read and see if you would ever eat smarty beans !

The second book is about a duck and marmalade jam. Sounds like a weird mix but it makes for a very funny book. Room 13 kids really liked the rhyming words and the way the words flowed into one another.

Remembering Christchurch

Yesterday the whole of Grey Lynn School stopped at 12:51 to remember those who have died as a result of the earthquake in Christchurch.  Our teacher made a video to show the school why we stop and are silent and Che Fu let us use one of his songs as the lyrics are very touching.
One of our students' nanny came in to be with him during the 2 minutes. We all felt sad for Christchurch and after the 2 minutes we watched a slideshow on the news and then we hugged each other. Andrea said we are lucky to be able to hug the people we love as some people can't now.

Kia Kaha Christchurch - that means stay strong.

Much love,
Room 13

Nana Jane's birthday Party

On Sunday I went to my Nana's birthday party and all my family was there. At the start we meet my
Aunty's model friend Kent. then we started to chat and eat nibbles. Then the whole smith family was
rushing threw the door thinking they were late. And after that everyone was there except for my Nana.
She came in the door walked up the stairs into the lounge and then 'SURPRISE' we jumped up and
popped the party poppers right in her face.Then she said 'I almost dropped the cake.' and then we had
some cake. Soon me and my sister took photos of everyone and everything at the party. We opened
presents after that. We got her a paper weight and an Australian pearl bracelet with an Eiffel tower on it.
Then everybody started to leave so we did that to.When we got home we went straight to bed.

My trip to canada

One day I went to Canada to my cousin' sister and my little cousin when it was 2009.We had fun being together but then things got to be bad. My little cousin's brother pulled my hair. It was very hard and it hurt. Then my cousin sister made me scared because of Canada has more bad guys and once I just went by my self around and I thought it is bad at Canada.We went to 2 trips at African Lion Safari. We went in their car and went around and see the animals.The monkeys just got on our cars and it was funny.The fun part was that I swam in the Safari Park and the bad part was some boys laughed at me. My second trip was at Niagara falls.The best part is that there was a boat there and I saw men were in there. Once I saw in a photo that my uncle was in that boat when I was little toddler or a baby. After that I went to London England and saw Big Ben and also went to Paris and saw the Eiffel Tower.
