Mini Book Review

I'm really loving my new books that I got from Ellen Duff they are really interesting. One is called Around the world in 80 Days and the other one is called Chronicles of Stone/Scorched Bone. The one I am reading now is Around the world in 80 Days. I would rate it a 10/10 because it has 37 chapters and 234 pages. The chapter I am on is chapter 4 page 26. I think it would be a good book for boys and girls because A it has a really cool picture of an air balloon and B it is really interesting.

Dynamite Bay sleepover

Yesterday was the Dynamite Bay sleepover at the Tamaki Community Church it was really fun, I even got to spend time with three of my friends there names were Jordan, Stevenson and Ryan.

We got to travel to the top of Mount Wellington Mountain. When we had finally reach the top we saw really steep hills that we could slide down with our cardboard boxes, but nothing could compare to the spectacular view. We saw Go Carts, beaches, houses we even saw the Auckland city sky tower it was amazing. Then it was time to go back to the church.

After we went outside to have marshmallows we went back inside to watch a movie it was called The Perfect Game.  It was really interesting and funny. Then it was time to go to bed.

Working with Flax

Rules for Working with Flax:
1. Treat the flax with respect
2.Cut the edges and mid rib
3.Cut thee flax stripes to the same length
4. Never stand on the flax when someone is using it
5. Do not keep it for yourself so always give it as a gift.
Things to remember about cutting flax:
1. A flax has lots of leaves but make sure you do not cut the three middle one ( Mother Baby Father)
2. Cut it down wards
3. When you are finished using the flax put the unused bits under the flax bush, this will feed the flax.

Swimming Lessons

On a scorching hot day my class and I went to the GI swimming pools to learn about safety and survival skills. There were only three female Instructors and three groups, group 1, 2 and 3.

When we had arrived I quickly got change and rushed  to the showers, I would have ran but the floor was too slippery. SHHHHHH SHHHHHH thats the sound the shower made, after I had rense my self clean I went back to the pool I was swimming in and sat down on the cold, wet grey chairs that were there.

As soon as I hopped in I went underwater because it felt like I was flying. Then when I popped my head back up to the surface and the instructor told us to do one arm freestyle kicking and I was the best so she move me up to group 2.

I felt so proud that I move up but then the second instructor told us to do the same thing. After I did that 2 times Mr S told me that I was too good so I had to move to group three, but the day was almost over so I stayed in group 2.

The next day I was in group 3 and it was tiring we had to do lots of laps but it was fun after a while.  After we did lots of swimming arm and breathing arm I think I was the fastest swimmer. Then i was time to go and we all raced to get change because the first 10 people out would het free time.

It was really fun learning how to swim because we got to have challenges each other.

Pirates vs Ancient Egyptians in the Haunted Museum

Mini review :
Today I have read a really interesting book with my friend Stevenson. It is a fiction with lots of characters and amazing pictures. This story would probably be rated a 10/10 because it is interesting, funny and you can even draw in it. I have read a lot of books but this probably is my first favourite and my second is The Holocaust Escape. 

I have finished the book and I think it is awesome, I would stall rate it a 10/10 there is more picture at the back and disgusting little bugs and animals. It's a book for everyone even the girls. Now I'm going to read another Mega Mash Up which is called Secret agents         
                       vs Giant slugs in the Jungle.
