### Maths

Here is polygon shapes we made out of clay and popsicles. We learnt this formular. E=v+F-2. E is for edges V for vertices and F for faces. It really helps to know if you got the faces vertices and edges correct. For our triangular prism we got 6 corners 9 edges and 5 faces.

For the pentagonal pyramid there were 6 corners, 10 edges and 6 faces. Here it is.

### Character Description

Character Description - We are learning how to write a character description using similes.

Her name is Madeline. She is as tall as a chair and a white board joined together. Her eyes twinkle when she is amused. Her eyes a bright green like a stone with gleaming sparkles.

Madeline’s hair is stiff like flax. With a few blonde Strips hiding away in the bunch of brown bushy hair. Although bushy not curly. She sometimes has it up in a bobby bun with a few bits poking out. If she isn't wearing a bun she has got her hair in a high pony tail or her hair out.

Madeline seems like a different person every day. In terms of cloths I mean! One day she is wearing shorts a T-Shirt ant to top of converses or vans.  When she is going out she is wearing some tights / leg gins on the top half of her body she is always wearing a a dress and sometimes a black over top. On School days she wears her Ross Intermediate uniform with a puffa jacket on top.

Madeline only wears her converses and vans on the weekends or on the holidays. On School days she takes her tattered worn to bit shoes. Sometimes when Madeline is being naughty she wears he socks on the concrete.

Madeline has a Brother the same age as me 9 and S he also has a very cute little sister called Eva who is 6. You can tell that Madeline loves them both very much but they often have fights together about nothing that serious. Madeline is one of those people who has a messy bedroom. She hates the mess but on the other hand hates tiding up!

Madeline's laugh is plain and dull like mine. She doesn't laugh very much but when something is really funny she does crack the odd laugh.

Madeline is a good girl but sometimes she teases her siblings because she has nothing to do. Although she lets herself down she only does that once every day.

Madeline is friendly at all times and bubbling with ideas and at all times she is taking is every bodes advice and locks it in her brain to help her with the future.

Madeline has lots of belongings. Her favorite belongings is her laptop her I-pod books and all her dance gear.

madeline is very fit. She has Jazz every week Soccer in winter swimming in Summer she does the mini Triathlon Series and she sometimes goes out to the massy track to do some athletics. On the days that she is not doing anything she is doing her homework or practicing her dancing.

Here is a photo of madeline. Does she look the same as I described her?

### Calendar Art

The learning intention:
We are learning about Kidsedchatnz and how the different twitter symbols work.

This is my calendar art. Here is the steps to how I made it. First I went onto pages and type in the words  all about #kidsedchatnz. I put a color for the background I din't choose to do rainbow color ( I thought it wouldn't look good.) Then I printed it out.

Next Step: I got a Bird and colored it in blue. I took it up to Stephen a few times he told me to fill in the white gaps. Finally I did that.

Step 3: I then drew some symbols for twitter the NZ, Person, the @ symbol and other things like that. We then colored them in I choose to color them in black it looked good with the blue.

The last step: I glued on the symbols and asked stephen to stick the bird to my printed background. Then it was all finished!

### Free Writing Friday established Writing

A sudden tear dripped down my face as I whispered softly “ I loved that place as I started to feel like I was going to faint.” Suddenly I felt a drip slide down my  nose. I then started to wonder why is it that when something hit, the rain starts and does a million summer salutes before touching one another and then disappearing like Jack frost. After I get back into the realty of life I try to clamber over the big wall, to find the shock of a built  down forrest. As I felt the rain get substantial my hair started to whiz round in a big gush of thrill. As I walked around the garden I thought about all the things that might of happened if I was still asleep. What would have happened to the trees that dogs I declare Are so special and the opposite of not really very rear. But in other terms I would say that living plants are very very special in a different kind of way. As I jumped frantically around, a little blue flew onto my shoulder and hopped of. How very cool I thought to myself very quietly as quite as a tiny little mouse or on the other hand as quite as a tiny little fairy with no throat. And that is when the anxiety hit me. My eyes started to gleam as my arms through back and forth like a drunk person winning the drunk persons 7.8 kilometer sprint! As I roared round trying to catch the blue bird I then suddenly heard a sudden call. It was like the chirping of two baby robins having a race trying to catch up to the blue bird. They finally did. The robin in the middle had a beautiful pair of soft motley colored spots. At all times was he making a seen of himself and trying to approve h to the other baby blue bird that on the other hand wasn’t so glamorous. You could see by the look on the middle blue birds face was that he wanted to be in front and wanted every one to look at him and talk about him! After a few seconds of flapping his wings he scampered like a cat to the front of the line.

The red robin looked dis hearted. It was like he was saying “ I don’t want to be in the middle of a peanut butter toasty.” I’d rather be on the outside were can breath properly. And then, I wouldn't have to carry all the stuffing. I think i’d get two tired! The red robin the let the blue bird that was at the back go in font of him and he whirled like the wind into a hollow tree where she kept her beautiful blue spotty babies. They were cute. Well what happened was that the red robin had it’s feed and then opened her mouth to let the little blue birds peck in her mouth. Gross! It was like one of the babies was wanting to slither and slide like a slippery old snake. But no! After he had had the worm he did a huge jump backwards. Then as sudden as rain all of that family of birds flew away into the distance and after a couple of seconds: 1...2! I never saw them again. Well, well, well! As you might be thinking in your head have I still be walking around this shattered place?

Well Yes. As the rain has pored down like a howling hurricane I have been under a wrecked app;e tree. I have been climbing in this trochees weather all this time and now my head, my back, my arm acutely  it seems like every part of my body, I mean every part of it is itchy. To be honest with you even my toes. Well. I have climbed about half way and now I can see every thing. I can see apples and in some spaces they are a very deep brown. Some boring old birds are up in the tree next to me, franticly chirping wanting somebody to play  with them. I’m not playing with them. I’m thinking. I’m thinking about something serious. BecauseI care for this land I could maybe fix it up. I could maybe make friends with the plants. Agh!

Maybe not. They don’t talk! Sometimes I think about talking to plants and learning from them. Maybe we could live and learn together and I could grow a tight friend ship with all the plants. Well I joyfully said! “Work starts tomorrow.” As I jumped out of the tree, and grabbed the ladder I thought I heard a screech of words from the trees and the plants the over all land saying: “Good bye” see ya tomorrow! As I sprinted around the garden and up the 400 steps I was thinking about getting to bed quickly and trying to keep every thing a secret. Even the wall. As I reached the top of the steps I heard the faint calling Please come back
.I woke up sharply. And had breakfast and went outside to see the piece of land in my pajamas. As i scrambled over the wall to see the light shimmer brightly over the flowers and trees. In my surprise I saw that they had grown a center meter. In a destination that so fewer people new and only watered every so 100 hundred every years . As the say went on we had tea parties together as night fell I went inside and carried my bed all the way to the fence and slept on the outer side of the wall. But I shore woke up every few hours to check if they were all right. And till this day on wards I played with them until I grew older.

I’m now 80 years old and I have just dropped of my children to there new home. Which is the secret garden place. As I walked in the door photo people gathered around me. I’m famous I thought to myself. I ran through the crowd. And hopped outside grabbed a ladder and struggled to hop over the fence. 8 ran to give each and every flower a hug. My kids were embarrassed all because i’d never told them about it. As I left them I told them to care for the garden and water them every day. And they did. I think it will come back in lots of generations to come.  True from the author. I will always remember writing this story because it took me a long time and when it takes a person a long time you will remember it forever. And maybe ever again.

### Good Job Hannah

Yay. I have gradually worked my way up and succeeding to have reached 80 posts on my blog. I LOVE the 80s! Or in other terms I keep moving up to the next goal which is the aim oh one hundred! Wish me luck!

Following  Mondays successful launch of the ‘Hub’, today we hosted the NZ Playhouse group’s performance of the Big Sad Wolf. This was a great story highlighting oral and dramatic story telling, weaving several well known Fairy Tales together in a new and contemporary show. The children were enthralled and this performance will provide an opportunity for numerous follow up learning activities.
The show is another example of activities that provide the richness and depth to our learning program which is only possible through the activity fee, as it falls outside of the basic education that our operational funding provides.

### Term 2 Ends

Today was the last day of term 2. So for a treat we watched a movie and let our hair down a little! Check out these photos!

### Writing Sample

At 6.45 pm I sprinted right into the reagent. Plop! My foot touched the ground ant then all of a sudden I felt apprehensive. I bounced up the stairs and hopped straight into dressing room 6. Suddenly Stephen appeared and said "straight down to ukulele Hannah." Then it suddenly happened, a shock wave attacked me, and suddenly I'm off. Bouncing down the stairs I go and grabbing my ukulele. I suddenly stopped to a hault when I saw Jennifer in front of me. "Wait there Hannah and don't play." Yes I reply quietly. After a few minutes of waiting some of my friends arrive. We start playing our ukuleles although Jennifer told us not to!

Suddenly Jennifer comes back and says " I'm going on with the marimba group now line up against the wall." They went on and as they touched the stage I felt captivated my eyes fixed on the stage at every second. After the marimbas turn it was ours.

Jennifer ran of stage grabbed her uke and told us to line up in the half circles we were in before. While we were getting ready on stage the red velvet curtain was down. But very sudden after a blink of the eye the curtain went up the music started to play and so did we. I could see that every bodes eyes in the audience were fixed upon us! After we had played all the pieces the red velvet curtain came down again.

I skipped of stage talking to my friends. I wan'st in Kapa Haka so I hopped up the stars again slid round the corridor and stopped when I saw Grace with red painted cheeks. "Oh gosh!" I thought to myself do we have to wear painted cheeks I walked straight past Grace not saying a word. I slid round another corner until Jacqui said come her Hannah for painted cheeks. I went over feeling like I was in a different planet. I thought that I could see a tiny flesh of bight red stars. I stood still not blinking an eye while I could feel the tickling brush swish across my face. After a few seconds in my own planet I suddenly stepped out of it. I then grabbed Bella Georgia Grace and Rosalind and asked them if they would like to play a puzzle game. "Yes they all replied." We went into the corridor plopped ourselves on the carpet and played! After a while some other people sat dow and played with us. We had one last game until Stephen tells us to  come into the dressing room for a quick talk before we go down stairs for our performance. Fantastic! I thought sarcastically, who wants Stephen ruining our game. I went into the changing room were the whole class was sitting. Stephen told us all the things that had said to us before. It was so boring listing to him speck! Go. Suddenly I here a big clatter of people running down the stairs and then I suddenly relies it's show time.

I wait in the curtains felling a bit nervous what if I make a mistake, and then I suddenly see room 14  has just ran of stage and then we run on!

The RSS presenters talked for a little bit and then ran of stage the music started to play and we were of dancing like bullets never stopping but doing the right moves at all time. As soon as the boys came on a smile came across my face. I felt like a person in the olympics training so hard and then it all coming down to this! The dance went so fast although short and sharp is how I like it! As soon as I went of stage I felt like old boring Hannah again.
