The parachuter

The parachuter
 Yesterday we had an unexpected surprise. As you can see above it was a parachuter. The parachuter kept trying to land but could n't because the kids were so excited they got in his way. The parachuter was at the school for about 15 minutes until he went away. It was certainly unexpected but at least it wasn't a normal school day.

THe book review

For the past few weeks I have been reading a book called When the war came home. Here is a book review for it. It is by Sarah Ell.

'When the war came home' is about a boy called Jimmy and his uncle trying to escape the flu epidemic. Their only chance is to go far away from Auckland for a while. Jimmy has an awesome adventure where he finds a new friend and discovers a disturbing secret. I'd recommend this book for people aged 10+.

 This is an awesome book. I will rate it 75%.

Our Athletics

On the 11th we had our school athletics.

This is libby. She helped with athletics.
 We ended up having to do it on Friday because we did n't finish on Thursday. All we had to do was 1 round. My group had to do high jump. I got third in high jump. The person who got 2nd finished at the same height as me but didn't have as much misses.

This is my post for challenge 3 activity 8. Every country has a mascot or a favoured toy. New Zealand's favoured toy is buzzy bee. Buzzy bee is probably the most favoured children's toy in New Zealand. The buzzy bee toy is basically a bee on wheels with a string attached to it. Who knew this toy could be so popular? For an image of Buzzy bee look below this post.

What you can do in Otorohanga.

This is my post for challenge 3 activity 2. If you were to come to Otorohanga you would have to know what some of the must see places are. There is the Sir Edmund Hillary walkway, the kiwihouse and the wall with kiwiana stuff on it. The kiwi house has some of New Zealand's native birds in it. The museum is also a must see place. There also is a holiday park which you can find out about if you go to http://www.kiwiholidaypark.co.nz/.For the inside view of one of the campavans in the holiday park look below.
