My Family

Hi Readers

I would first like to say I am really sorry for not writing a post in ages. For the Student blogging challenge we get to choose out of different topics and I choose to write a post about my family.

Well lets start out with one annoying little sister (named Lucy) add an awesome Mum and a Dad that says dad jokes that are not even funny (don’t you hate that) but he is awesome. So thats my family, like family. Then I have got 16 cousins 18 unties and uncles. Just telling you that my parents are one of a lot of children ,I know this is random but guess what one of my Grandma’s is 1 of 8. I have three Grandparents 2 awesome Grandmas and 1 really cool Grandad. I only have 1 Grandad because of something really sad and I never got to meet my second Grandad.

On my Mums side my Grandma and Grandad have both had their 80ths and we went to Taupo in New Zealand. We stayed in a really nice resort place and it was really cool but that was a few years ago.

I have some much older cousins than me but that dosen’t matter because they are awesome and so are all my cousins.

Most of my family lives in New Zealand so we go over there a lot. Can I tell you something  -the ALL BLACKS won the world cup and it was awesome , I watched the whole thing and my Dad went to the final. I saw him on TV.

Hobbies of my family are well, my sister likes going to school ( I can’t believe it), my Dad loves rugby, wait no he dosen’t love it he looooovvvvvvveeeeeees it and my Mum likes cooking ( so do I).

How to make a Ancient Golden Mask!!

Hi Readers

At school because we are studying gold as our HSIE topic this term we read a book called Gold a treasure hunt through time. It was a fantastic picture book for older readers and our student teacher Miss Dodd and we made a google map thingy about it. Then we were inspired to do Ancient golden masks, they are awesome. So I decided that I would put my procedure that I made of how to make a ancient golden mask!!

So here it is!!

Material-

Art Smock

Messy mat (optional)

Paper mask

Cardboard

Pencil

Scissors

Masking Tape

Newspaper

Paste

Paint brush

Gold tissue paper

String

Gold paint

Sequins

Gold glitter

Gold ribbon

Method-

  1. Make sure you have a clear area to work on so that your table doesn’t get ruined by glue.
  2. Put on an art smock. Collect messy mat and place paper mask on to messy mat (if you don’t have a messy mat use newspaper).
  3. Trace your mask design cardboard (look on the internet for good ideas) make sure you leave a 3cm band for the inside of your mask to put in. Where the 3cm band is cut out triangles to stick in the mask.
  4. Fold the triangle design on the trace line. Get some masking tape and stick the cardboard design on your mask keep the triangles inside the mask when you stick the design on with masking tape.

5.     Rip up some newspaper. Paste some glue onto back of  the mask where you stuck your design on with masking tape. To make it strong, glue the ripped up newspaper on the back of the mask where you stuck your design. Paste 2 to 3 layers of ripped up newspaper (also called Papier-mâché).                                    6.Leave mask to dry overnight or until the Papier-mâché is hard. Rip up the gold tissue paper and paste onto the front of mask. Paste 2-3 layers (like papier-mâché).

6.You can add string to the mask for decoration. Put glue on the mask stick string on and paste the glue over the top to make it stick.

7.For decoration put on sequins, gold glitter and gold ribbon.

8.Then you have made an ancient gold mask!!!!!!

My Holiday Part 2 (Gold Coast)

Hi Readers

I have just got back from the Gold Coast and it was awesome so I decided that I wanted to wright a post all about what an amazing experience it was. Well in the Gold Coast there are the theme parks which are Sea World, Wet ‘n’ Wild, Dreamworld, Whitewater world and Movie world. My family and I went to all of the theme parks or called (the worlds) and I decided that I am going to tell you a little bit about each world!!

Let’s start with Sea World OMG it was awesome!! Sadly it was to expensive to swim with the dolphins but I was fine with that. My favourite part at Sea World well I can’t choose out of the Seal show or the dolphin show at the Seal show it was like a play with a seal in it and the seal was so adorable. At the dolphin show it was really cool because the dolphins did all of these cool tricks and some of the tricks were like 2 dolphins lifting up an person who trains the dolphins in the air (really high)!!

Now to Wet ‘n’ Wild. This world was fantastic well it is obvious for me to say that because I love water parks. The best rides for me that I went on were well it was a big circle blow up thing and it sat 6 people and you would go down this hydro slide and go up the walls of the hydro slide. Also there was this ride where you would get these mats with a thing to hold at the end and you would race other people to get down a slide!!

From Wet ‘n’ Wild too Dreamworld which is connected to Whitewater world!! My family and I spend half a day at dreamworld and our favourite ride probably not for mum was the Log Ride where you went in this log and you went up really high to the top of the ride and you went down this steep drop and got soaking wet!!

Whitewater world!! Well this was my second favourite world!! My favourite rides where the Green Room where you went in this big circle blow up thing and went in a hydro slide and there was a steep drop where you dropped into the green room and went up the sides. Then there was the hydrocoaster where you go in this raft thing and go through a hydro slide and there and steep drops and places where it soaks you with water. Now onto BRO or in other words (Blue Ring Octopus racer) where you go through a hydro slide on a mat with a thing to hold on to and it’s a race to the end!!

Last but not least Movie World!! For me I saved the best till last this was my favourite world because there was a Harry Potter Shop and I Loooooooooooove Harry potter, Sadly I wasn’t allowed to buy anything but there was a case with a replica of Harry’s wand but it was $75!!

Thats all for now!!

My Holiday Part 1 (New Zealand)

Hi Readers

I would just like to tell you a little bit about what it has been like in the few hours I have been here. Firstly my Mum, sister(Lucy) and me arrived from Sydney at about 12.04pm and then we got our baggage and got a taxi to Lucy’s and mine Grandparents house. There was Grandma on the front porch wide awake. We got a nice cheery welcome and went inside and saw Grandad in the lounge room. They told us about they saw the  plane that we were on because there house is so so close to the airport. We stayed up for a while then went to bed and I woke up at 9.45am which is 6.45am in Sydney because of day light savings. I couldn’t go back to sleep so I got up andwent to the kitchen and there was yummy food on the table. So that is what ithas been like in the last few hours. Now I know this is a post about my holidayin New  Zealand but Ican’t not talk about the cooking course I went to. It was awesome on the first day we made a raspberry blondie and crumbed chicken. On the second day we made a tortilla mexican pie and a apple and pear pie but on this day we finshed late because we had to make our own pastry. Yesterday we make a Thai spiced chicken with a nice salad and ricotta and chocolate cakes (which were like little muffins or cupcakes). I still know that it is a post about New Zealand but I saw Johnny English REBORN and it was awesome though when I came out of the movies I didn’t really get what the whole fight and everything was for. Still it was a really fantastic movie and here is the tralier.

Tourist Attractions-

Hi Readers

For the student blogging challenge we have to write a post about tourist attractions from these places – California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, North and South Dakota, Iowa, Illinois, Ohio, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and back to California. This is because Miss W and Mr Davo Devil will be visiting these places.

My first tourist attraction would be California!!!                                                                                                                                                         Or in other words Disneyland how could you not miss this tourist attraction it is awesome!! I have been to Disneyland and I had the time of my life. How couldn’t Miss W and Mr Davo Devil not miss this. Disneyland is in Paris, Japan and many other places.  If you are not quite sure what is Disneyland then you are nuts (it’s a theme park by the way). You couldn’t go to all of those places and not miss that!!

Now on to Washington!!                                                                                                                                                                                                          It’s where the American president lives (the White house). Seeing the place where one of the most powerful leaders of the world lives would be a fantastic opportunity and Miss W and Mr Davo Devil will treasure this forever. The White house is a lovely building/house to Barack Obama and his family. The White house is a lovely architectural building and a lot of people would treasure to see the White house I have already treasured seeing it.

I talked about California and Washington how could I not forget New York!!                                                                                                I would love to go to New York this is because I could see the statue of Liberty go to the M&M shop and sadly see the place where Osama bin Laden planned a tourist attack to hijack two planes and his people drive the planes in to the twin towers. Sadly a lot of people lost their lives in this horrible attack planned by Osama bin Laden. Now there is a waterfall naming all the people who lost their lives in this horrible attack and it is where one of the twin towers stood. This place is called ground zero.

Moving from america to….. New Mexico                                                                                                                                                                        This was really hard but I found something. The New Mexico state fair which is held from the  9 to the 25 of September this year. The fair has livestock and many fun activities to do and entertainment for everyone such as dancing,music and many other things. It also has traditional food and many sweet treats the food is plentiful. Do you think Miss W and Mr Davo Devil will like this???

Now I have told you about California (Disneyland), Washington, New York and New Mexico what about New Jersey!!             This is was very hard to find but I found the New Jersey state house………..                                                                                                  It is located in Trenton, New Jersey ,America this is the seat of government for the U.S. state of New Jersey. It is a lovely building and it looks beautiful and magnificent to me. It is not just a seat for the government state of New Jersey it is also a home for the New Jersey Senate and New Jersey General Assembly.

So please comment on these tourist attractions and what you think Miss W and Mr Davo Devil will like……………

Rugby World Cup 2011!!!

Hi Readers

Tonight is the starting of the Rugby world Cup 2011 in New Zealand. I am watching the rugby world cup game between NZ (which rules) and Tonga!! The game is in Auckland (where I was born) so far the game is going well to New Zealand they are wining 29/3  it is half time. What a great way to start the Rugby world cup 2011 for NZ. The Rugby world cup started with fireworks which were amazing. I hope NZ win this game which they probably will but anyway. Doesn’t this flag thingy for NZ rugby under this look amazing!!! If you are fans of Australia I think there is a game this Saturday against Italy and Australia.

Eric by Shaun Tan

Hi Readers

At school we read in class Eric by Shaun Tan because it was a celebration for literacy and numeracy week. I loved reading the book Eric and so did my friend Tess. My favourite part was when Eric left the home he was staying at and when the family looked in the pantry they saw little plants in recycle materials such as bottle caps and other things but I don’t want to spoil it for you though if you want to read it!!!!

Here is what it looks like. Just to let you know I would recommend it to anyone even adults. If I could rate it out of ten I would say 11/10 for me that is really high.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2

Hi Visitors

Yesterday I went Harry potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 it was fantastic. Sadly I didn’t go to it in 3D but 2D was fun. My favorite part was when Neville Longbottom started teasing Voldemort’s army that they couldn’t get him because there was a shield around Hogwarts and then the shield faded away and then they started chasing after him. My favorite charater is Neville Longbottom because his name is soo funny. I think Neville’s last name should be nobottom but anyway.

Who is your favorite character in Harry Potter??

What is your favorite Harry Potter movie??

Here is the Trailer
