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.

Our atheletics training

Yesterday we had Libby to give us some tips on our running.  First we had to answer her questions.  Her questions were like how do you walk, jog, run and sprint.  Then we did some relays.  We also got to bound and that is a mix between jumping and running. Next week we are practising long jump and high jump.

My holiday

In the holiday I have done lots of fun things.  For example I went to Candyland and got to make my own lollypop.  I also got to play mini golf at Taupo.  I got a hole in a one.  I went to the movies and watched Diary of a wimpy kid.  I also got to watch Despicable me.  Those movies were cool.  What is your favourite movie and why?

Why I chose this theme.

I chose this theme because I like technology.  This background shows figures traveling through cyberspace.  Cyberspace is the thing that allows us to use the internet.  I also thought this was the coolest background I saw so it wasn't so hard to choose.  I was just looking for theme that people thought was cool and would want to keep coming to my blog. Hopefully my background will have people thinking my blog looks cool like I did.
