Kitty Cat to Cool Cat

Hi, I'm going to talk about the kitty cat cool cat. 

Once upon a time there was a lonley kitty cat. The kitty cat had no friends. But one day the fairy kitty godmother came to the lonley kitty cat.The kitty godmother said " you will now be the cool cat!" It released its star power on the lonley kitty cat. 🌟 The lonley kitty cat made lots of friends and had a happily ever after. THE END! 

Artefact BP

My Artefact is a river in the middle of the forest.
Its purpose is to display a river
I made my Artefact with blue cellophane, a cardboard box, sponges, and paint.
I had a challenge when I had to do something in the front area because I had to think of what I should do. 
My Artefact is 10/10 

Crazy Shoes

On Wednesday at Parkvale school, it was crazy shoe day. I did a kahoot about it. It was a very good day. That day we also did kapa haka practice. 

If you want to do the kahoot just ask me!

Matariki activities

      Yesterday Rimu hub did Matariki activities. The day before we had chosen which activities we were doing. I did the taonga, paper lanterns and the storytelling. Here is a photo of me and two other people making our lanterns.
 The taonga turned out really well here is a picture

 It took me a while to figure out how to do the taonga but I did it in the end! Matariki day was really cool.

This is my graffiti art!

Day 14, 15 and 16.

Day 14
Today was the big performance. We had a dress rehearsal that went from 8:30 am to 12pm and the real show started at 1:00 pm. In my
break at 12pm I had a unicorn hot chocolate and this is what it looked like ( well kind of, I started drinking it as soon as I saw it. It had an icecream cone 'horn'filled candy, blueberry hot chocolate, whipped cream, rainbow sour lolly straps and glitter sprinkles).
The performance was so much fun. Nana, Aunty Bid and Mum came to watch me. At the end of the show I got a gold medal for doing BBO Dance Days. I loved it and really hope that I get to go next year. Next year it is in Christchurch. 
On the way back to Nana's house we we stopped at Fisherman's Table for dinner. It was very dark when we got back to Feilding.

Day 15 
Today we drove back through Waipukurau. I made it for my jazz and tap class but was too late for ballet. I was very, very tired but it was important to go because their important in three weeks! After dancing I went to Waipawa to see my friends in 'The Sound of Music' play. I thought my friend Arabella did really well. I gave her a huge hug at the end.
Finally it was time to go home. My Poppa Renzie and his girlfriend Cath had come to visit. We played bananagrams which was lots of fun.

Day 16 
Wow, the last day of the holidays. I came into the gaming room and played a plane video game with my little brother, I was the spitfire plane and he was yellow plane. When everyone woke up we decided to go for a drive to Napier. We went to a cafe, marine parade, the beach and Otatara Pa where tribes of Maori people lived many years ago.

Day 13

Today was the last day of BBO Dance Days. We spent the day rehearsing our dances for the show tomorrow. I got an NZ School of Dance t-shirt as souvenir.  My Mum bought tickets for my Nana, my Aunty Brigitte and herself. The tickets are really cool, this is what they look like:



My ballet shoes broke and we had to go on a mission to find a dance store to buy some new ones. They feel comfortable and are really nice to dance in. I also got black jazz pants for my tap dance. The last thing I got is very special and something I have wanted for a long time. A tiny pointe shoe key ring. I want to keep doing Ballet and get really strong so I can dance on pointe when I'm old enough.

There are teen girls on pointe at dance days and it looks really challenging but fun!

Day 11 & 12

Tuesday was my second day of BBO Dance Days. I have learnt the whole ballet dance, it is called 'Innocence' and we are using white, orange, blue and pink fake flowers as props. My flowers are orange. I really like the dance and I am excited about performing it on Friday.
At break time I had a caramel slice and a rasberry fizzy drink from the cafe, they were delicious! I also learnt most of the jazz, tap and musical theatre dances and had a very technical ballet syllabus lesson. I know all of the ballet syllabus for Grade One but these lessons will make me even better which is good because there are exams in August.

Today at Dance Days we finished all of the dances. My Musical Theatre dance is from the movie Hercules and it is really fun. I also like my tap dance because we are cats and cats are my favourite animal! Tomorrow we will be fixing up any mistakes and making sure the dances all look good for the performance on Friday. I am so excited!

Day 9 and Day 10

20170716_085407.jpgToday I left my Nana and Grandad's house to go to Wellington.  Nana and Grandad's cat Jonesy ran up and down the hallway meowing like a cat alarm and woke everyone up at 4:30am!  When we got to Wellington we went to Te Papa. At Te Papa we saw an enlarged version of the Treaty of Waitangi. It was very hard to read as the handwriting was so old fashioned and it was in pieces but there were also printed translations in English and Maori. The Maori version was different from the English translation which is why there have been lots of arguments in the past. 
20170716_121549.jpg20170716_121425.jpgI also saw some beautiful Kauri gum nuggets (Amber) that were very old and had bugs frozen in them. The gum was very hard and smooth. Another cool thing I saw was a large mobile of sea creatures hanging from the ceiling. Te Papa is one of my favourite places to go in Wellington.
The next day was the first day of BBO Dance Days 2017! I was very, very nervous as I walked into the NZ School of Dance. There were lots of dancers who had come from all over the country and I was the only one from my dance school (except my dance teacher). I got over my nerves and I think I did really well. I am learning four new dances that will be performed at the show on Friday. 
My Uncle Marcus, Aunty Brigette and baby cousin Marco all came to visit me in my break. Marco is a real rascal and he is very cheeky and funny. He has learnt to walk and climb. 

My heels were killing me at the end of the day after several hours of dancing in four different styles! When I got back to our hostel I did a big fish flop on the bed because I was exhausted!

Day 8

Day 8

Today my Mum and I were driving around like headless chickens. We were trying to go to Feilding but… first we went to the Gorge because we lost the way when we we driving then we went to the Pahiatua track and then we realized that the Saddle road was open because it was after 3:00pm so we changed direction.
I didn’t want to go on the Pahiatua track because Mum said it was twisty. The Saddle road had lots of potholes in it. We made  it to Feilding in the end and that was the mission.

We are staying in Feilding at my Nana and Grandad’s house and tomorrow we are driving to Wellington!

Day 7


Today I watched a lego Scooby Doo movie on Netflix and played dinosaurs. When we were playing dinosaurs my brother was the Plesiosaur and I was the Brontosaurus.
Mum also made playdough and we played with it and made playdough pizzas, animals and fruit. My playdough was pink and Aiden's was green. We mixed them together which created a cool marbled effect.

Day 6

Thursday  Yay Day

Today I played with my brother, we made robots, we drew dragons and we made an imaginary giant fart cannon out of green lego bricks. It was so funny!
I also did some jobs, including feeding the cats. They went crazy as they LOVE tuna cat food. I think it stinks! Yuck!  My cats were delighted and very smoochy as they loved their dinner. I patted them afterwards and they went to sleep with big, fat, full tummies :-)

In the evening, we watched an old movie called ‘Gremlins’ on Netflix.

Day five

Me in my cat PJs doing the peace sign sitting by my lego house.

Today I played with my lego and watched The Sound of Music movie. I am going to see the play next week to watch some of my friends from my old school and my old piano teacher. She is going to be the main part, Maria! I made a whole house out of lego bits and some of the legog people I had stayed in the lego house.  
The vehicles were Batgirl’s Batjet Wonder Woman’s motorbike  and a blue motorbike. My lunch was delicious! I had bliss balls,  salted peanuts, apples, and a jam sandwich.

Day Four :-)

Today I went to the dentist, I was very nervous but it turned out that my teeth are great! Then I played in a playground with my brother.
We went to Kmart, again! Lastly, we went to Lone Star in Napier. I went to Lone Star as an reward for a good report plus I had a voucher from winning a colouring in competition. It was very dark when we drove home and the moon looked like a glowing orange!

Food Fun:

Today I went to the Doctor as my little brother has an ear infection. He has to have lots of medicine! Later we went to Jitterbugs for some new dance tights, then we went to Mitre Ten Mega and The Warehouse. 
20170710_164154.jpgThen my brother and I drew native birds for a Columbus Coffee shop competition. I hope we win! I also played with my brother and watched Power Rangers with him.

  Project Shine

Chapter 1

“OK, the computer system room should be right about... here!” Violet stream said as the two agents went into the black room. Project Shine was on a special mission. Well, only half of project shine Summer leaf and Violet stream. Summer leaf said,  “Luckily I’ve  got a torch!” Summer leaf said. “OK now to shut down all of DESTRUCTION’s computer systems.” Said Violet stream. “Really? A fidget spinner background!” Summer leaf said. “Well, that’s what you expect from an agency of boys!” Violet stream said. They shut down the computer system and zoomed out of the building.
