Scrambling through the dense, twisting  and unstable... I run into a clearing but  trapped. Next to me  paper.  I see scissors with a Squeal from the metal Working against each other. Paper dashes with speed trying to take scissors out but with a slash of a blade takes paper out.  I stamped and roared.  Leaped higher than ever before I put my hands is a first spiralling down Smashing scissors.

Tuesday, 27 October 2015


In class we have being doing inquiry. For inquiry we had to make our own product, some people are doing chocolate, drinks and baking. I did Lime-o-nade. With our product we had to create a logo and we had to make a company. My company name is splash I thought of this name because I just thought it would be a good name for a fizzy-drink. I thought of doing lime-o-nade because we have lots of lemons at home. With my  lime-o-nade I carbonated my drink to make it fizzy. These are the ingredients I used

55g of sugar
20% lime juice
and water

Character Vignette.

In class for the this week in writing we have been doing a character vignette this is my version.

Character Vignette

As I start sprinting closer and closer to the track, I heard the roar of the engines. I got to the wire fence. I stopped for a second then I put a hand on the wire, it started to burn on my fingers, ‘So cold I thought to myself.’ The sun split through the the bare trees, that looked like big bones all put together to make a bare tree, that made the low morning sun hit me right in the eyes. I put my hands on the wire and started to push it down for my legs to get over. I started to run to dad and Mike I could hear the crunching of the crispy leaves under foot I made sure nobody was coming as I sprinted across the hard concrete track I got to Dad and Mike.

‘Hi dad how are you?’ I asked happily
‘Good laddy. How are you?’ Dad asked
‘Good. Dad could I race round the track with you and mike?’
I had to shout now because a car was going past ‘No you can’t maybe next time.’ dad shouted.
Dad and Mike were putting on their helmets on and started going round the track.

I slumped back over to the slightly rusted fence. I rested my back into the fence and gripped the wires still piercing cold to the touch. I sit back and I watch Dad and Mike in envy as they are having such a great time. Mike accelerates with and the leaves on the path get launched into the air, and smacked me in the face. Mike laughed and dad followed through soon after, laughed I started to weep in my hands. I wanted to run home.

I ran home. Salty tears trailing behind. knocked on the door mum was there, I ran straight into my room.

In class for calender art we took an animal an did zentangle inside of the animal. Some did dolphins, horses, elephants and I did a gorilla face. Here is my animal.  If you don't know what zentangle is, it is a type of art.  I used a type of zentangle called mist which is the one that looks like seaweed with bubbles coming out from it.

The jump

In class we have being doing a quick write about a boy jumping off a wharf and we had to write what we thought that would happen this is my piece of writing.

As I walk down the long old wharf , I look around and wonder what it was like when it was first built. I remember when I was there 2 years ago when the water had been all dirty and rough.

IMG_6976 (1).JPG
 As I peer over the side of the wharf, I think to myself I don’t want to do this any more. Splash! Cameron and Anton had already plummeted down. Shawn soon after. They all splashed into the  waves that were pounding onto the poles holding up the old wharf. Mum and Lisa were watching.

I go 4 steps down the ladder. The others all shout 3 2 1. I jump. Splash. I had done it. But not the whole way. I thought that I said in my head I don’t want to do this but I said it out loud.
I jumped the full way I shut my eyes I forgot to bring my arms in. Slap. ow ow ow ow ow. I go to climb up the ladder and I saw the seaweed and I went to skip that ladder
I thought in my head I have done it before so I can do it again. I jump again I open my eyes. When I jumped, it felt like, time was slowing down. As I plummet down into the water, The water got closer and closer, I hit the water, I sink down I start to push up I gulp up the air I had done it again. I swim to the ladder I look at the below and see the seaweed cling to the first step of the ladder I try to skip that ladder but I fail. It was time to go back to the site.

The save

In class we have being making a poem about sport. The actions would only take

about 10 seconds. We have also being learning about stanzas. For our success criteria we had to have 2 stanzas. Also we had to have a each verb on a new line.

This is my poem about hockey.

The save

10 seconds hanging on the clock.
The scores are locked on 2.1.
Slipping past the last of the defenders
Into the D
As the colossal pads stick to the socks
Sweat builds up in my socks
Ready's the forehand   
Smashes the ball
Places foot
Ready's for a save

And then
               And then
                                And then
Ricochets off kicker
Back to the player
The game goes on
No hammering
For the moment

To the unknown soldier

File:Red poppy 2.JPG

In class for the past few weeks we have been learning about ANZAC day and this is what is my writing that we have done over the past week. we have been writing about to the unknown soldier that is in the tomb at Wellington and we have asked questions, and wrote what we found out. This is my writing

To the unknown soldier
As I write this letter to you, I am thinking of how we are safe here in our class safe, warm, chatting and away from war. I am writing to you because I  want you to know that you are still remembered. I would like to share my thoughts with you and ask questions about what it was like.

Did you think that you were going on an adventure, were you exited? Did you have any relatives overseas, and did you think that you could see them again?  Did you have any loving family and was it very hard for you to   leave them? I know that I couldn't leave my family

 I cannot imagine What was it like to hear the deafening roar of the guns and the cannons?Bang. Was it a surprise for you when you thought you were going to France but you were going to a dry, hot and horrible place with layers upon layers of hot and crumbly and dry sand.

How did you feel when the army told you to shoot any of the turkish army when you had the chance to as well as stab them and murder? How did you feel when you heard the scream of the wounded soldiers and saw the dead that had littered the ground?

As I close my eyes I  can’t think of all of the blood stained rocks  ,dirt and barbed wire destroyed and stained with blood. As well as the massive holes that had been created by the artillery being fired.

It must have been like hell over there with all the deafening roars of the artillery and gunshots. Blood and bodies everywhere. Smelling the horrible stench of the trenches. With the rats scuttling through out the trenches.

how did you feel when you put on your uniform for the last time at Gallipoli proud to serve your country? or scared that you might fall in battle and never see your family again? Goodbye.

ANZAC biscuits

Below Is my post about ANZAC biscuits. Here is some history of the ANZAC biscuits.

At first the ANZAC biscuits were called Soldier biscuits but after the lading at Gallipoli they changed the name to ANZAC biscuits. To ensure that the biscuits stayed crisp they were packed in used tins such as Billy tea tins.

How to make ANZAC biscuits

1 cup of rolled oats
1 cup of plain flour
1 cup of sugar
3/4 cup coconut
125g of sugar
2 table spoons of golden syrup
1/2 of a teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 table spoon of boiling water

First pre-heat the oven to 150 degrees or 300 degrees F

First. get a bowl and put your oats into the bowl and sift the flour into the bowl now put the sugar and coconut/ combine

Second combine the butter and golden syrup over low heat until melted

Third combine soda with boiling water and mix with melted butter and mix into dry ingredients

Now take a teaspoon of mixture and put lightly on a slightly greased tray make sure there is room for spreading
now put them in the oven for 20 minutes

My favourite spot.

This is my favourite spot that we go to in the holidays
Saint Patrick's Cove

I remember skipping across the bay with my uncles, cousin, sister and dad on my uncles boat. I leaned down to skim my fingers across the water. The salty water  sprayed up hitting me in the face, so I went and hid in the front of the boat to avoid getting sprayed any more. I scrambled out from the front of the boat when it stopped. I saw an amazing place that was covered at some points of the cove, like huge rocks  above where we stopped the boat. The rocks were hanging there like giant bats. With the crystal clear water below the boat I could see the holes on the floor of the cove with little crayfish and small fish hiding among the seaweed.  I smelled the salty aura from the water and the horrible stench from the old fish the boat had previously caught. I  could hear the faint sound of the crashing waves outside of the cove, and the swelling of the small waves inside of the cove and felt the small breeze pushing against my face. I could taste the salty mist from the waves crashing outside of the cove. Back again to the batch

A journey through the mind of Tosh.

This is my writing that we did a few weeks ago about us. Here is mine.

Take a trip inside my mind, a place where crazy and creative things happen, animals run wild and no rules and no violence between animals

At times my mind asks me questions how is gravity created? What would happen if you split an atom and what will happen? Is it possible to see a water molecule through a microscope.

I have 2 animals that I love.
I have a dog called Frank and he is a lab cross. My sister has a cat called Toby, he is a grump usually

I dream of an ultimate adventure where crazy things happen.  things twists and turns and stretch your mind to the limit

I wonder what my dog is doing at home sleeping or running round like a hyper dog with his pillow and tripping over himself or how much the world would have changed in 1000 years and what it was like 1000 year ago.

My hope is that I see what I could change when I am older and that people that I need help I can help.

I can often be found patting my dog or when my cousins are around playing with them and little cousins

When no one is watching
I do Nothing at all.

This year I want to be the best year because I have the teachers I wanted

My mihimhi

This is my mihimhi If you don't know what a mihimhi is it is a piece of writing of about your self in Maori. This is mine

Tena koe

Ko Tosh T ahau
No Havelock North ahau
Ko te mata te maunga    
Ko Tukituki te awa
Ko Havelock North Primary te kura
Kei te mihi
Tena Koutou katoa
