We made a pastel pictures out of pastels. I made a sea horse in the magic reef, Zoe made a picture of our family in a castle and Sam well I don't know, it looks like the ocean. After I finished mine, I made a colourful picture covered in black then what was supposed to happen was when I scratch the picture it shows you the colours, but instead it was brown and didn't work.
Guess what happened before the holiday? I won the talent show at school! There lots of people who auditioned but only 12 acts made it and there were three trophies. There was:
The only other Year 2 person was Sonje ( who did an Indian dance ) and she won the best individual trophy. These Year 6's won the best group performance. They did a funny little act. And I won the best in the show trophy because I told my jokes that I made up! I was Jonah the Jokemaker. My two best ones were:
I went for a massage with my family. The first place did not let us have a massage because they did not do 30 minutes and me and Zoe were going to have a 30 minute massage and my mum and dad were going to have a 1 hour massage. So we went to a different place. First Zoe went, she had a Thai massage (body massage) on a high bed. Next it was me. I had the same as Zoe. My dad had a foot massage and sat on a cumfy chair with a little table for his feet and my mum a Thai massage and laid on a mattress. My brother played with ether me or Zoe on mine and my mum's i pad. When I had my massage I almost fell asleep and I felt dizzy. I had a couple of ideas for when I give my mum and dad massages. I charge them:
If you buy 2 you get one free!
I swam half a km! The strokes I used were:
I swam 21 laps. Zoe did 10 and my dad did 31. My dad mainly did breastroke but also did freestyle. Zoe, well hmmm she did all three like I did. Sam was at the steps selling us food (pretend food) for us to eat in between our laps.. But you have to guess what he sells. I usually ask for a chocolate milk shake with chocolate ice cream, chocolate sticks, chocolate balls and chocolate sause. But once I wasn't allowed it because Sam didn't sell it any more but then I got it again.
You won't believe what I got for only riding 5 km ( best 15 km ); a giant smoothie ( which I had to share a little ) but it came in this giant jug. I chose a strawberry smoothie but Zoe ( my sister ) had mango. My dad, well passion fruit and mango, and my mum, she shared. I went a different way back. I went:
When I got home I was exhausted and had to lie on the sofa for a minute.
Guess what happened yesterday? I got to go on a picnic really close to a dragon that lives on a rock that's in a lake. In the lake there was a little island. Plus there was a bridge to the island and when we got to the island there were bushes around it. In the middle there was this like pagoda with a roof and we used it to play a game. Have you ever played hide and seek? Well this game is similar; you hide in the bushes then the person that's it has to find you while the tagger tries to get other people you have to sneak ( or run ) into the middle. When we were going to go to see this train my dad kicked my football and he thought it would go onto the grass but instead it went into the lake. I was not happy with my dad! What were we going to do? Zoe was about to swim in and get it but then we saw two men and one of them swam to get my ball. Me and Zoe said “ thank you” then I bounced the ball and oh no, it landed in the lake again! We couldn't believe it; luckily for us the man got the ball again. We stroded off to the trains and looked inside, we liked being the driver the most.
On the last week of school we had a learning journey about amazing achievements. I was Samuel morse. He invented the telegraph and also invented morse code. Thea ( my friend ) was Jane Goodall and Thomas ( another friend of mine ) was Neil Armstrong. I was next to a computer because for my speech; I had a website that had a morse code translater. You type something at the top and it come out in morse code. During ICT we made leaflets and found out information on kid rex website. An interesting fact is you can comunicate many different ways using morse code; for example blinking or flashing a light. Before I started I felt confident but when it started I was really shy. Lots of people came to see me; including my mum.
I made Springrolls with Zoe (my sister) and my mum. First we peeled the
pastry apart. Next we put the mixture in and wrapped it in a special way. After that we fried the springrolls. Finally we ate them with my mum's special sauce, noodles and lettuce."Yum yum!" I liked putting the mixture in. Zoe liked eating the uncooked pastry!
I went roller blading with my sister Zoe. We both fell down a few times and I got two cuts and a red hand. I wore knee pads and arm pads. I felt quite proud after I did a lap around my swimming pool. My sister also tried. My mum said I was being a risk-taker and dad said I was being adventurous.
8 years old, I like to create and make things. I make up great jokes and love to read!
I can send you updates of my adventures to your email address!
