Lego models that we made

On Thursday we made Lego models with Mr  House J.J.'s model was A motorbike it was awesome because it looks like A real.  Prezley's model was A crane and batween you and me I think  Prezley's model  is best. 
It was hard to make Prezley's model because it got harder and harder joning lego to lego in the middie. J.J.'s model was easy because it was kinder small and to prove that Lego bits are still forling of Prezley's model but J.J.'s model is still awesome.
Here are same photos.

Mr gum and the cherry tree

 few weeks ago I read a book called Mr Gum and the Cherry tree it was very funny
It had lots of characters and lots of humor my favourite character was the grannie  
who loves alcohol she is very funny same with Polly the little girl. My favourite chapter 
Was chapter 7 and the name of the chapter was called chapter 7.
Chapter 7 was my favourite chapter because there is no chapter 7 and it makes
Me laugh and the head master is a ginger bread man!!!!
I think this book is suitable for 7+.

Paper banger

11/14/2013 Thursday
We were sitting on the mat thinking what Miss Cheeseman was going to tell us and then she gave us?
A piece of paper and said " it mite get harder" I thought we were making a paper air plane.but it was a paper banger or you can call it the mother a noyer. 
This is the instructions for the paper banger!!! 

Fold the piece of paper from the side then unfold it and fold the corners down to the middle on both sides fold the to corners to each ofer the fold it again then you will see two wholes you pull them out and fold them down then fold it so it lookes like a square fold it to a triangle and then hold the skinnyist corner hold it on top of your head with top corner facing down put the paper banger on top of you head and slam it down. It should look like this.

The awesome gala!!! At Laingholm school

At Laingholm school we had a gala there were heep's of things to do like  dunk the teacher, bounce  castle, spin the wheel and cake's it was lots of fun but it was raining at least  it was sill fun. We made lots of money about $260 dollars and we played on the bounce castle.
