Go LG MYSTICS!!!

We walk to the gate, we're inside the trust stadium and we see our home team....the LG MYSTICS!! They were versing the pulse team. Beep as the whistle goes! The game has started...wow the mystic's goal shooter has the ball in her hands ready to shoot! Beep the whistle goes again the mystics have a goal!! The crowd goes wild and then very quiet...soon the whistle goes again now the crowd is waving there blue banners, shouting and screaming, then everyone is suddenly quiet then the ball has been thrown to the pulse team then the whistle blows. The timer goes its a quarter gone already the mystics have 21 goals already. Pulse has 30 goals they have got in the lead I wonder what happens next! The whistle blows its the second quarter already the mystics have 31 goals and the pulse team are still on 30 goals.....But wait a minute? Something awesome is coming out? it is, it is, a HUGE DICE!! What happens with the dice is when you get a number from 1 to 6 that is the time you will get for the game, and if you get the smile face we get 15 minutes to go,so that is quite a long time for the mystics and the pulse team. So the dice has been rolled and what number do we get???? We get the number 6!!!!So then we get 6 minutes for the game to end, so then the mystics have 59 and the pulse team had 59 as well so then the talker guy said that we should have 14 minutes left to the finish. So this is what he meant, so we have 7 minutes for the mystics and pulse, then they have 1 minute to have a drink, then have a talk, then they will go play again for 7 minutes then have another drink and then another talk. Then we all look at the Score board and OMG!!!! pulse have 60 goals and we have 61 goals and the CROWD GOES WILD by screaming and shouting and cheering and then we all clap and cheer some more, and then everyone starts walking outside so they can go home and then the game was finished, and if you wanted to you could meet the mystics and get something signed.

THE END


The HIGHLY COMMENDED Letterboxes

On Friday evening last week, there was a post box competition. Many schools were competing and getting prizes for all their hard work that they had done. Jay Yu and Dain got 'Highly Commended' certificates. All the certificates that were given out to everyone that won a prize each. When we went up, we got given two black bags with goodies in them. In the bags we got some roses and the certificate. We are quite proud of our class and all the people that made a letterbox. We were so happy when we went up stage. Dain couldn't take the smile off her face! It looked like it was going to be on her face forever and ever!!! When we went off the stage we gave our bags to Miss Cheeseman so she can look after them. On Monday morning, we found out what was inside the bag. There were gift cards for the class and the 'Roses' chocolates enough to hand out to the whole class! YUM!!! Everyone had so much fun making the letterboxes! Well done to Tenera, Tori-Grace, Alex, Farah, Isabella, Sahville and Dain and thanks for coming!!!

Cross country.

What a awesome day. People are running and running trying to be 1st. As soon as you pass them they give you a BAD look like you let them all down. Some were cheering you on some weren't. TICK TOCK TICK TOCK the time went fast in your head people were getting ready for the next race. By time it was my turn to race my heart was pounding, my pod was telling me to go faster. I started to pick up my speed. I started to past some girls. I was coming first in the start but then Hannah past me and Sarsha and I was coming in a tie together. When everything finished everyone was very happy and some weren't just because they never made it in the finals.It was hard for some people because you had to try come in the top 8. hi my

The Values Filming With Rm 21

On Friday, we did some filming about the Summerland values.
We did it with room 21. Before we started filming, we had to get into a group, watch a few videos then we planned about how, where and when we were going to film it. After we planned it, Miss Cheeseman showed us how to use the camera with a tripod. She showed us how to change the size of the tripod and how to record with a camera. After, we told Miss Cheeseman where we were going so she didn't have to go looking for us all the time. When we went to go and do our filming, we weren't allowed to go where all the other groups were. After we filmed, we imported it to Imovie. Nobody got to the editing part yet because we had to get ready for home-time.
But when we get up to it, we will update this post!!!
