Intergalactic Space Trip

Today for maths we were focusing on Decimals. Decimals are similar to fractions. I know how to add, multiply, subtract and find the value of decimal numbers. Our problem was about adding and subtracting decimals. Here is our Maths problem. You can try to solve this Maths problem.


Math Rules

Like most things, we have rules. For Maths we respect our rules and obey our rules. We had to give in ideas on what is bad during maths and what you should do. E.g: No laughing at others. Here are the rest of our rules.

Winter poems

Winter's here, I need to get snugged up and wear warm clothes. But also reading warming winter poems make my day warmer that usual. Here are my favourite Winter poems.

The truth is dark under your eyelids.
What are you going to do about it?
The birds are silent; there's no one to ask.
All day long you'll squint at the gray sky.
When the wind blows you'll shiver like straw.

A meek little lamb you grew your wool
Till they came after you with huge shears.
Flies hovered over open mouth,
Then they, too, flew off like the leaves,
The bare branches reached after them in vain. 

Winter coming. Like the last heroic soldier
Of a defeated army, you'll stay at your post,
Head bared to the first snow flake.
Till a neighbor comes to yell at you,
You're crazier than the weather, Charlie. 

He way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree

Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part
Of a day I had rued. 

Late lies the wintry sun a-bed,
A frosty, fiery sleepy-head;
Blinks but an hour or two; and then,
A blood-red orange, sets again.

Before the stars have left the skies,
At morning in the dark I rise;
And shivering in my nakedness,
By the cold candle, bathe and dress.

Close by the jolly fire I sit
To warm my frozen bones a bit;
Or with a reindeer-sled, explore
The colder countries round the door.

When to go out, my nurse doth wrap
Me in my comforter and cap;
The cold wind burns my face, and blows
Its frosty pepper up my nose.

Black are my steps on silver sod;
Thick blows my frosty breath abroad;
And tree and house, and hill and lake,
Are frosted like a wedding cake. 


Matariki Performances!

We have been practicing non-stop and discussing what we will be wearing. There are other groups too. Our school Sasa, junior hula group and a performance from the cook island girls. But the main purpose of this event is about Matariki.

Netball Success

Every Tuesday the Glenbrae yr 6,7 and 8's have Netball tournaments on Tuesdays. The past 4 weeks our yr 8/7 team have been winning almost all of our games except for one. But you know the greatest athletes didn't succeed without losing once or twice.

Now in the second week of the holidays my sister and I, along with 3 other girls, are going to a Netball camp for three days. More like a Netball programme. I went to this Programme last year and it was fun. But we also have a Netball tournament on the first day before school. On a Sunday, for the whole day!!.

Before we know it we are back to our Tuesday routine. I cannot wait for these exciting events.

Oh What a day?!

As usual it is raining. No thunder or lightning has hit yet but I know it's coming. All days it has been raining, dull and muddy. Staying indoors is not really fun but when you put your heads together you make something fun.

Here are the rest of the weather temperatures for the following days.

Shine a Light 2016

Last year we were visited by some unique people who performed a amazing show to us. Where we participated in their play and had to do dances.

Today we were visited by the same company who performed for us last year. Except this time the whole theme was different. The performance was about a girl called Rose who was getting bad remarks from her magic mirror. She believed what he magic mirror was saying and started doubting herself. But her friend Richard gave her a magic lamp which makes everything from your imagination disappear.

I really enjoyed how they acted and sang catchy songs. I also liked it when the actors made us participate in their dance moves. Their show was really amazing. Some say the best they've ever seen.

Singing Quotes!

Singing is a passion of mine. But usually I don't like to express it. When I read these quotes I feel comfortable and relaxed about my singing passion.

Whitney Houston and Beyonce

Whitney Houston
Whitney Elizabeth Houston was an American singer, actress, producer, and model. In 2009, Guinness World Records cited her as the most awarded female act of all time.

Beyonce
Beyoncรฉ Giselle Knowles-Carter is an American singer, songwriter, record producer and actress. Born and raised in Houston, Texas, she performed in various singing and dancing competitions as a child and rose to fame in the late 1990's as lead singer of R&B girl-group Destiny's Child.

I believe that these two artists are the most successful female artists of all time. Well thats just my opinion. But I can't seem to work out who is more success full in their careers out of Beyonce and Whitney Houston. If I were to come up with one I would say Beyonce. Beyonce has sold a lot of albums but I would say her latest album is a smash hit. Beyonce gets payed 3 million dollars a day just for that album, Lemonade.Image result for Beyonce Vs Whitney houston
