THE FARMER BROWN EGG



This are the photo of the farmer brown egg.
I learnt to make the sticker stay on the egg from my dad.
First we carefully cut the stickers in to pieces and put it on the egg then I put it in the hot boiling water so it stuck.
It was so cool and it took 20minutes,but one egg cracked so we ate it.
The funniest thing was when we were going to eat it,the sticker didn't stretch so we had to cut it.

Lady Gaga


On Saturday Rhiannon and Farah went to Lady Gaga's concert with thousands of people. Rhiannon and Farah had so much fun that when they got home they were sleepy. Lady Gagas concert was held at the Vector arena. The songs she had done where: Poker Face, Love Game, Bad Romance, Just Dance, Eh theres nothing else I can say, Naughty Boy, Telephone, Videophone, Uh Oh, and Paparazzi. The 5 dress's that we like are: Bubble Dress full of bubbles, Fireworks bra with fireworks flying in the air, pink space glasses for a space song Tornado dress for a tornado act Princess dress for a weird kid song. It smelt like fireworks because there where a lot of fireworks. We ate and drank: coke and water, hot fingers and chips. We both could see it well but we were watching it from the screens that were held all around us. The concert she made was called the Fame Monster. We hope Lady Gaga comes back to New Zealand again. Next day Lady Gaga made a comment on twitter and she said that all the people in Auckland are a bunch of idiots, we think her comment about Auckland wasn't very nice. We both thought the concert was very good though.

camp video


this is our keynote
from TAMIR & JARRED

Dain and Izzy's Camp Movie

Today we did keynotes about Camp Bentzon. We had 5 different pages we had to include. They were... Something that made us laugh out loud, something new that we learnt, something new that we discovered about ourselves, something that scared us and something we found challenging. Isabella and I did 8 pages including the 5 pages, the title page and the two "thank you for watching" pages. We had to write at least one sentence to each of the 5 pages. We got some photos from the server then moved them to iphoto. Then, we moved them on to our camp keynote. When we had finished writing, putting photos on and all the extra stuff we wanted, we had to export it to quicktime player. It was very hard because we had to make the timing perfect and get the punctuation correct. It took us quite a long time to do it. Here's a slideshow of our finished work. Enjoy!

a trip to Ethiopia


Hello my name is Farhiyo . I went on a trip to Ethiopia. I went to see my sister in law because she had a baby boy . When I went there I didt get use to it because I left it when I was little but every one knows me . We stayed after a month then started an islamic school. At the islamic school we learnt quran witch is a bible for us it teachs us who our god is and his name witch is allah . What else l learnt was our religon rule's one of them is after the age of 9 you have to where a scarf because if boys see your hair its not right, its against our rules for our religion, but I am not sure why. Another rule is you need to pray at the age of 9 because it means you don't belife in allah if you dont pray but if you pray it means you do belife our religion but i stared at the age of 7 because i learnt quickly . The islamic school is on Monday to Thursday, and Thursday is a half day . After we stayed one month it was a special day for the muslims. So I and all my friends and cousins went to this big beautiful garden that was so green like green paint. When we got there we had some chips, drinks and burgers. Then we went to the slides and the monkey bars. When it got late we went home and my sister made us popcorn then we watched this move called 'shot it'.It was the best move . The next day we went shopping and i buyed a skirt and its t-shirt with shoes .On the other day my mum went shopping to buy clothes because like all other people that go on holiday but not men the buy clothes form a other places for muslim people and sale it her for money so my mum got some clothes because some of our cousins and friends and family said that they wanted clothes to buy so we got some clothes to buy .Then it was our last day and we had a good sleep .When it was morning we stared to pack up then when it was 3 clock we in the car and went to the airpot and had our last tomato sauce and chips at ethiopia .We said bye to every on and went into the airplane we stayed in the airplane for three hours then landed into dubia .I ran to the bed and called room survice i had hot choclate and cake .Then i went to sleep when it was morning i went down stairs to have something to eat after we ate we went to hop on the airplane and this time it was 5 hours .When we landed in brisbane then we stayed in brisbane 1 minute the went back in the plane and left brisbane and stayed on plane 3 or 4 hours and we were back home yeah yeah yeah .
