my blood story


One day in 2010 I was having a day at my friend James house, he also invited Kelvin my other friend.  We were running around the house until Kelvin said “since James didn't have a tramp we should jump on his bed”.  Unfortunately, with how dumb we were at that age we agreed with him.  A short two minutes later, we were trying to touch the roof.

Suddenly, Kelvin fell and smashed into my leg, I tripped over then fell of the bed BAM SPLAT!!.  My head felt sleepy James told me that my head was bleeding at first I thought he was joking until I put my hand on my head and took a look at it.  AAAAHH! I scream and start cry.  James runs through the hallway and gets his Mum to call my Mum.

My Mum gets to James house and runs inside to take me to the doctors.
She carries me outside and lays me down in the back of the car.
Mum drives as fast as she can to the doctors but it felt like it took ages.
I thought that I might need stitches and have an ugly scar for the rest of my life.  luckily I did not need stitches I just needed some doctors glue to hold the hole in my forehead shut while it healed  and it didn’t leave a scar.

Lychell Adams

“Honey, can you please vacuum the hallway!” As soon as I hear this I know that my Mum is laying down on the couch watching videos on facebook.  Who is the worlds most kind person Chel Adams is an easy answer.  With her sometimes cunning attitude she s able to trick people into cleaning the dishes and vacuuming the hallway for her.

Every time I annoy her, she tells me to stop it nicely which should be enough so get someone to stop but if I don’t she takes one big breath and slowly counts to three but there is a good side too.  Every time that my family is having a family trip you can be sure that she will change the radio onto some old songs and automatically starts to sing at full volume.

“Where is the flour!” mum erupts in anger as she runs through the kitchen looking for the flour, I look under the shelf and pass her the bag of flour.  She is always working, at home cleaning the house or at the cafe making coffee.  Although she sometimes growls, I know that she still cares about me and she is just trying to teach me about life.

As soon as you walk into my house you can automatically see who her best friend is,  Mum and my cat Cooper are cuddling on the couch.  With her handbag beside her she is off at another day at the cafe.  Even though she is going to see me soon, I’m sure she misses me.

My Holiday Highlight

Swoosh my kite dives down at 100 miles an hour but I manage to keep it up.  PING! the thin plastic pipe in the kite flew off the main body the kite and dived into the tree.  I gave the string a big tug and CRASH! the kite landed nose first into the long green grass.

I found out that the reason it crashed was because I didn't put the pipe in the holders enough which caused the wind to flick it of of the main part of the kite.  The name of my kite is (Bite) and that is a real type of kite.  The kite is a one and a half meters wide and half a meter tall so the size lets the kite fly real high if you know how to fly it good enough.

I was having a day at my grandma’s farm with My sister and My grandma.  We only came to the farm so we could feed all the animals at the farm but there was a lot of space so I decided to bring the kite with me.  The farm is an annoying 15 minute drive out of town going up hills, around hills and over pukeko.

How clouds are created

Have you ever wondered how clouds are created?
There is a theory that a man who is 2014 years old makes the clouds.  Jack lives in a huge house and to add to that he lives in the middle of nowhere.  

Clouds are actually just huge amounts of smoke that comes out of Jacks  two hundred chimneys. Instead of having one fireplace per chimney Jack only has one hundred fireplaces so he made one fireplace for every two chimneys.  To start making the clouds It takes one hour to get all the fireplaces working.

The biggest wonder of the world is how are the shapes in the clouds made.  Jack puts fly traps around his house and he catches and trains all the flies .  Jack trains the flies to eat parts of the clouds and create shapes in the clouds like animals or cars.  That means that the flies are basically carving the clouds into shapes.

If the sky is grey and full of clouds then that means Jacks house is on fire.  That happens a lot at his house because all the fire places he has can lead to disaster.  If there are no clouds then it means that Jack is just having time off.

Goldilocks 2

main character
other character
7 dwarfs
secret cave
lost and hungry

Once upon a time Goldilocks was walking in the forest until she found a secret cave. Goldilocks decided she wanted to go inside so she ran into the cave. She found a whole cupboard full of delicious food “should I have a snack” Goldilocks said “I might just have a small meal” she said to herself.

1 hour later Goldilocks was giant and she was still shoving food in her mouth. Suddenly 7 dwarfs came into the cave. “what are you doing!” screamed the dwarfs “Just having a small meal” Goldilocks said “SMALL!, we have no more food now”.

The mouth of the cave started to collapse then all the dwarves rolled Goldilocks out of the cave. They all got out of the cave safely as they watched the cave collapse. The dwarfs kept rolling Goldilocks through the forest. The sky started to get darker as the sun set. All the dwarfs sat under the tree for shelter.

The next day the dwarfs woke up and started to roll Goldilocks down the hill.  They kept rolling her for days until one day they found a giant book. They rolled Goldilocks on to the book then suddenly she fell down into the book.

Goldilocks fell into her own story and then the three bears started to attack her. “Lets go by some food before we starve to death” said Grumpy. “OK” said all the other dwarves.

My reflection of 2014

This year my favorite thing for 2014 was the fish block art.
I think I have really improved at a lot of different things from writing to maths all because of Mrs Roil.  I learnt to make sure to try your best at everything you do.

A thing I have improved on is my writing, literacy and punctuation thanks to Mrs Roil helping me and always telling me what to improve on when I do something wrong.  Secondly I have improved on my maths and multiplication even my addition.  One last thing I have improved on is my art and my drawing.

There is one thing I would like to improve on my reading and pronouncing maori words.  2014 has been a great year so far and Mrs roil has helped me to reach my goal.

Visual language explanation

I called my story (The Cabin) because of the cabin that they stayed in to save up money to buy the Herrick house in too many secrets.  In other words the shack.  I think that (The Cabin) is a freaky and mysterious name so that the people that read the title they will know if the book is for them or not.   This book can get a bit violent at certain times so what is the best age for this book?

This book is about a girl named (Becs), her mum (Tony), her step dad (Mark) and her step sister (Nick).  Becs dreams of going to Ascot High School but while she is staying in the cabin she found a new friend Isaiah.
While she was staying at the cabin she found out that the history of the Herrick family has too many secrets.

I made my sky black for the night sky and I put my words (The Cabin ) on the top left of the page I coloured them in cherry red with red fog around it.  Under the title there is a cliff that has the moon peering over the top of it with the light of the moon reflecting onto the cliff.  On the right side of the page there is a swirl of red smoke that is coming out of the chimney of the of the brown cabin at the bottom of the page beside the cliff.

To answer my initial question I would say the appropriate age for this book is 8 and over.  This book is for people that like mysteries and a tiny bit of thriller involved in the book they are reading.  This book is really interesting but even some parts of the story are a bit dark and violent it is still one of my all time favorites.

The solar system

Our solar system has one sun in the center and eight planets orbiting it and more than 80 moons and thousands of asteroids.  Our solar system is in a galaxy called the milky way. Does the moon have a real name?

Our solar system has eight planets and one dwarf planet.
Mercury,Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and the dwarf planet Pluto. Today I will tell you about Mercury Venus Mars and Pluto.

Although Mercury is closest planet to the sun it isn’t the hottest planet Venus is the hottest planet. That is because Venus has an atmosphere that traps the heat on the planet. Mercury doesn’t have an atmosphere so the heat can bounce right off of it.  An atmosphere is like a divider that separates the oxygen on the planet from the gas in space.

Mars looks red because it has a thing called iron oxide all over its surface but we call it as rust.  That is what gives it the red colour.  Mars is the home of a lot of mountains and volcanoes.

Pluto is a dwarf planet that was named by an 11 year old girl when she spotted a new planet. Pluto is not a planet anymore because it is too small to be a planet.  Now that we have new technology we can see that one of Jupiter's moons is bigger than pluto.

To answer my question, yes the Moon does have a real name its name is Luna.  People call it the Moon because it is easier to remember and moon is a word that means a natural satellite orbiting the earth.  Our solar system has one sun 8 planets and one dwarf planet.

How to block in hockey

Hockey is a team sport that is played in the winter.  It can be played on turf, grass or on Ice. You have the minimum of 11 players when playing hockey.  To play this sport you need a mouth guard so if the ball flings up at your face your teeth don’t get damaged, a candy cane shaped stick and a small hard ball.  Are the sticks you use in ice hockey the same as normal hockey sticks?

There are two main things in hockey which are blocking and striking.  Blocking the ball is when you are trying to stop the ball and striking is when you are trying to hit the ball into the goal or when you are trying to pass to someone.  Today I will teach you how to block.

Firstly, you need to be facing towards the ball with your legs apart and your stick will have the flat side of it facing the ball.  Hold the stick with one hand at the bottom of the grip and the other at the top of the grip.  When the ball is coming lay your stick on the ground and it should be on a small angle remember to keep holding the stick with your hands in the same place.

Secondly, when the ball hits the stick you don't want the stick to snap so to prevent that from happening when the ball hits the stick you give a little.  To you give a little when the ball hits the stick you move the stick back a little.  Then the ball doesn't hit the stick as hard as it would if you just let it hit the stick.

Finally, keep your eye on the ball because if you don't you never know if the ball is going to go straight past you. There are all kinds of things that could happen if you don't look at the ball like the opposition steals the ball off you or if you miss the ball.

To answer my initial question, no the sticks you use in ice hockey are more of an L shape and the sticks in normal hockey are shaped like a candy cane.  hockey is a winter sport and to have a team you need at least 11 players.

My Thank you letter from camp.

Parkvale School.
Howard St,


Dear Louise,

I would like to thank you for helping my camp group accomplish things.  It was really thoughtful of you to come to camp with room 10.  Camp was a lot of fun.

My favorite part of camp was rock climbing at flax rock. I learnt that rock walls can be jagged or even inverted.  I also learnt how to climb faster. It was the first time I had gone to flax rock.

I really want to thank you for coming to camp.  I felt a little bit unsafe sleeping in the bivouac.  I felt safer with you and all the other adults around.

Yours sincerely,

Heith Adams.

My Pixir Editor.

The kindness boomerang

The Kindness Boomerang
One day when I was about four years old my old friend James and I were playing on the beach. After a while he found a giant crab about 9 centimeters wide.

He tried to pick it up but then it pinched him right across the palm. I ran and got his mum to get a bandage as we wait I give him company. I wondered   when his mum will come.

One month later at school I was walking around then James came and passed me a $30 gift card for the warehouse.

Kindness Is a boomerang the more you throw it the more it comes back to you.

Hedgehogs are cute spiky animals that are sometimes flat in the middle of the road or walking in the middle of nowhere.

Hedgehogs look like baby Porcupines they can grow up to around 25 cm in length. pet Hedgehogs have white fur on their faces and belly. when they are young the spines are white with small shades of very light brown stripes on them. Wild Hedgehogs have brown fur and brown spines with small white stripes on them.

Hedgehogs are half vegetarian and half carnivore. They feed on Insects, Snails, Frogs, Watermelons, Snakes, Mushrooms, Bird eggs, Grass roots, Berries, Melons and Toads. They drink water and sometimes milk. Pet Hedgehogs like milk a bit more than wild Hedgehogs.

Hedgehogs give birth and the don't lay eggs. when Hedgehogs give birth the baby doesn't have sharp spines instead they are born with hair that gets stiffer as they get older and the hairs turn into its spines. Hedgehogs normally have 3-4 newborns but for smaller species they give birth to about 5-6 newborns.

When Hedgehogs hibernate they stop being a warm blooded animal since this uses up too much energy. It's body temperature falls to match the surrounding environment. While hibernating the Hedgehog becomes cold to the touch because of their blood temperature. The Hedgehog stops moving, its breathing stops for long periods of time and the heart rate drops to around 20 beats per minute.

Hedgehogs are small spiky animals that are sometimes mistaken for baby Porcupines. Hedgehogs are cute animals that you can raise to be a good family pet.

Henry Hudson

Henry Hudson was a famous explorer and navigator. He was famous for exploring the sea and he gave the Hudson river its name by being the first person to explore it.

Henry Hudson repeatedly tried to make a route from Europe to Asia. He never accomplished his goal but he did name a few places on his honor. He was born in 1565 in United kingdom  England and lived in London. Not a lot of people know when he left home in died in 1611 or 1612 at the age of either 46 or 47 pretty young age to die isn't it but nobody knows where he died.

After getting married to a girl named Katherine while also having three sons named (John), (Richard) and (Oliver) did you know that Henry's son John went with him on all four of his trips . Henry Hudson mysteriously died in 1611 or 1612. After setting voyage across the sea’s of Northern Canada. Not even the smartest scientist in the world knows if he was lost or stranded with a year supply of food in his ship or hit an iceberg then died dramatically (just like the titanic).

Henry named his boat’s (Discovery) that was his first boat, (Hopewell) that was his second boat and (Half moon) that was his last boat. Henry Hudson was known for a lot of things I Don't think his two remaining sons will forget him. I said two because his oldest son went with him when he got lost or whatever happened at the end of his journey.

Henry Hudson was a famous Explorer and Navigator. He named the Hudson Bay, the Hudson River and a lot of other places.

A moment in time

I heard my sister laughing at me.
I heard people on the ride talking to each other.
I saw mum taking photos of me and dad as the ride started rocking.
I saw my dad holding his hands up as the platform started spinning.
I felt the platform get higher and higher as I hold my hands up like my Dad.
I felt my Dad smack my back as it reaches its top height.
I wondered how long I would be on the ride.

I wondered if mum will ride it.
