Our Ugly Classroom

Even though it's the last day of Term 2 2012, Miss King wanted the class to take down all the fabric on the class walls. It was only for the builders to change the classroom. This is what it was like for me.

“....And that’s what all of you should do. Got it?” asked Miss King. “Yes Miss King.” replied the rest of the class. I went up on the table and started taking out staples. Then, all of a sudden, Miss King shouted: “HEY!!! WHO RIPPED ALL OF THIS APART INTO PIECES!?!?!?!?!?!? Come on! Use your brains room 13!" I was glad that I was on the other side of the room when that happened.

After all that tragedy, I kept going on with with my job. A few minutes afterwards, the class was a dull brown kind of colour. At one point I saw something familiar. It was a rectangle with holes in them. They reminded me of when I was in room 3, we once had to lie down and look at the ceiling. It looked exactly the same.

After I told my friends, Miss King told us to write about today. ON THE LAST OF THE TERM MISS KING!!!??? ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND!!!???

The 6 thinking hats Part 2

Like last year, my class is doing The 6 Thinking Hats and this is what I wrote:


Art,  Maths whizz, movie making, playing games with my friends, writing, reading, are my favourite things to do at school. We learnt a lot, I just can’t deny it.


If I had to choose the downsides of this term I couldn’t choose anything.


I learnt about Wassily Kandinsky and how to make abstract art.


I think that this is the best term I ever had.


So far what I find the most interesting is the FA soccer world cup. Go Argentina!


I could eat less junk food, exercise more, (Especially since Cross Country’s coming up) and learn more. Hey, I should be on Maths Whizz! Bye!--

Art reflection

Hope you like our Art movie. We worked really hard and under pressure. So sit back, and relax. Please.

Art Gallery. It's new.

“Wow,” I said while staring at this place. It was the Art Gallery. I was glad that it only opened today because my class was the first to go in there.

I took a look at our class work. After seeing that I finally know why we had to paint these boxes black. I looked around for my group’s pieces of art. When I walked around to find the paintings, for some coincidence I saw my art first. “Pretty cool, Iisa, pretty cool.” I said in my head.

After that I saw something else that was eye-catching (but not as much as mine). And it just happened to be my friend Lee’s picture. It was a sunset kind of picture, and it even looked abstract! I could see the houses, the sea, the purple sun, and its light. It was really eye-catching.

Mrs King told us that  we can buy some art pieces that we like. I can’t wait till Wednesday because that’s when I’ll be able to buy some pieces of art.

So I really, really, really, really need $3 to get some masterpieces. Please Dad! I’ll be good!!!

PEPA had their performance yesterday. PEPA stands for Pt England Performing Arts. My favourite part was Hip Hop. What was really eye-catching about that was when Samson stood on his head and hands, and put his legs behind him. “OOOOOooooooOOOOO!!!!!!” Everyone yelled.

Getting out the bus, I knew we were here. Youthtown. I wondered what we’d make out of clay. First we got in this room, put down our bags, and then a Youthtown instructor led half of us into this room. We were making clay tiles.

First we had to cut out our tile. Afterwards my group had to crosshatch some bits of the tile. A crosshatch is a kind of X. We had to do it all around the square. Then we had to use the leftover clay, roll it until it was like a sausage, crosshatch it, then put some slip in between. “PHEW!!” I said. That took a while.

We then drew our design on the tile, put some coloured glass on, stamped my name on it, then gave it to the instructor to melt at 1000*C.
“Get your togs now” Miss King said. It was time for swimming.

“Thea’s in,Thea’s in, and she can’t even bother to get me!” I said
“TAG!” she yelled.
“Paula's in!”
“Time to get out!” Miss King said.

After we changed back into our school clothes, We went to the games room.
“Boys on Girls in mini soccer!” I yelled.“The Girls have one more point. What will happ---AA--AAARGH! That hurts a lot!”
Mua had pushed her defender right into my stomach.
“Boys win!” cheered Shalom.
My distraction had let the Boys win.

“Ooooooh, I think I’ll leave now” I moaned.
I decided to go and shoot basketball hoops with Leka and Tyrone. Bounce, bounce, bounce the ball went.
“Yay! I scored a point!” I yelled
“Uh, uh uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh, uh uh uh Oh.” Leka had scored one too.
“What!?” I yelled.
Because I want to win, I did a cheat. I went up the stairs to the top floor, dropped the basketball down the edge, and it went in the hoop.
“Woooooh!” I screamed.
Before I could celebrate my victory, Miss King said that we had to get our bags and go to the bus.

I can’t wait to go back.

Freezing week in Christchurch

Setting on the ground, Christchurch was blanketed in snow. Catching snowflakes on your tongue, collecting hundreds in a minute. Lightly tumbling down like a feather.

Skidding and sliding on the roads covered in ice, people were urged to exercise caution when in the car. In the severe storm, people started to freeze and then they lost power. The temperature plunged to -7*C.

Abstract art

Abstract art is amazing. It has all these shapes and thingys and colours, and most of the time you cannot understand it. Room 13 had a go at this, and this is what it was like for me.

Drawing the shapes, Shalom said that I used too many shapes. It wasn’t true because I didn’t have any trouble colouring in. I did nearly everything right, just colouring in was bad. I couldn’t blend the colours with water, but everyone else could.

I enjoyed everything; the colouring, the drawing outlines, the making sure no-one could understand it, everything. If I had to choose the downsides, it would be impossible for me to choose. Oh yeah, here’s my 1st piece of abstract art.
