Today I made these goals for this term!!!

No Surprises

                                                                  "No Surprises"

A heart that's full up like a landfill
A job that slowly kills you
Bruises that won't heal

You look so tired and unhappy
Bring down the government
They don't, they don't speak for us
I'll take a quiet life
A handshake of carbon monoxide

No alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises
Silent, silent

This is my final fit, my final bellyache with

No alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises please

Such a pretty house, such a pretty garden

No alarms and no surprises (let me out of here)
No alarms and no surprises (let me out of here)
No alarms and no surprises please (let me out of here)

A heart that's full up like a landfill- A landfill is garbage so maybe his heart has been broken or he has done a lot of trash things?

A job that slowly kills you- He might of had a really cool job but then he did something stupid  and got lots of warning then slowly got fired.

Bruises that won't heal- Bruises normally heal so he might have been heart really bad or he could have been to poor to go to the doctor.

What Colour Would You Choose

What Colour Would You Choose? Green, Purple, Yellow,Red & Blue.

I would defiantly choose blue, The Awesome Colour Of the Sky.If you only had one Pencil that was blue you could draw an amazing picture of the sky. 

Red is the colour of fire and fire can harm you. For example volcanos & Fire can burn you and put you in Hospital.

Why shouldn't blue be your favourite colour? Its is an awesome colour you can use it for all sorts of learning.

Blue Blue Blue, Blue should Defiantly Be Your Favourite Colour!!!

Water Colours

 MondMonday 24th

The Water Colour Makers.
W.A.L.T: Observe like scientist.

I stared at the round white circle wondering how I was going to make that. All of a sudden I found a interesting pattern. For some strange reason there were bumpy crackly  peaces on the inside. I noticed it had some tiny circles on the top like the chalk we observed in See Think Wonder. The water colour had some unfamiliar cracks.

The liquid turns into a solid over night!!! The solid turns back into a liquid because you are supposed to put water it so it turns into a WATER colour. The water evaporates  and it turns back into a solid. The white colours  do not work white paper like someone trying to carry water in a bucket with holes in it.

We had to research it so we would happily be able
to A+ it. We wrote down what everyone was going to bring. “Ok You bring that you bring this you bring this and I will bring that, Ok? I thought it was going to work,  But nope it failed. ,MASSIVELY!!! One of the weird ingredients was honey. What would that do to it? It may have failed but that doesn't mean you cant use it.  

There went many colours but I used them anyway. I started to copy  my other art. My paint brush briskly ran a line down the page. It looked a bit colourless so I went over it. My class went to the library to  calmly work so I went back to class so I could finish.  I think that next time we should use a lot less vinegar.

The Dark Side

Trapped Under a big wave, Not again I thought to myself in shock. “Help mum” I screamed at the top of my lungs. Oh no not again, Another massive scary wave was coming. I better hold my breath AGAIN. Luckily I was wearing my best Friend, My life Jacket.

Awkwardly I tried swimming away from the rip but sadly Failing. Amazingly I was brave and did not panik. :)

“Help” I anxiously said. A brave lady in her 20’s came over grabbed my arm and pulled me towards mum. She showed great Kotahitanga.

Thankfully I Said “ Thanks A lot.” “Thats Ok” She Replied.She should be so proud. I thought to myself.

I walked up the smooth smooshy sand.I looked back behind myself  at the beach that can either be a gloomy beach or a dark beach like a dark clown watching over you like the Mona Lisa.
