Oh my goodness, I hate it when we get the “tangram ” puzzles!!! I can never, not ever work it out!!!!!!! The other day we got what they call the octagon puzzle ( gag ) it looked hard, people said it was hard and it was MOST DEFENTILY hard but I worked it out. It took me a few days and a little help but in the end I did it myself! I found out that there were more than one way to work it out. I felt so proud when I completed this task, so maybe now I like tangram puzzles… I SAID MAYBE!!!!!!!!!

Book Review: Blueback by Tim Winton

Abel is a boy who loves the sea and lives at Longboat Bay with his mum. His dad was a diver but sadly he is no longer with his family, so now Abel and Dora Jackson have to work out how to live by themselves providing their own food.
As Abel and Dora get older there are some hard decisions they have to make, there are there are some good people that they spend a lifetime with, and bad people that they would never want to see again, and there are some rough times that the Jacksons have to go through together.
I personally think that this is a great book for older children such as 9, 10 ,12 as well as teens to young adults because there are some sections that younger children wouldn’t understand.

I found that some of

The Lighthouse Challenge

On the 19th of March we did THE LIGHTHOUSE CHALLENGE!!!! It was surely a challenge. We were aloud 1 meter of tape, it had to be 1 meter high and it had to be all made of news paper. My group was Darcy and I. We thought it would be a bit worse because we had less ideas. At first we had a really good idea to make two poles stick them on a base then wrap more news paper around that. But no!!!! It failed wouldn’t stand up! The top ended up falling off so we didn’t meet the criteria of hight but my teacher said we could use our mini lighthouse and it succeeded.

A Friend, a House

Seconds, minutes,hours past. My determination to leave was unbelievably high. Ding dong, ” Ruby” yelled mum from across the house. I’m coming! Ella… Ruby!

Donuts and watermelon in my hand. Chocolate chip finger buns in the car. I couldn’t wait. We got to the house we carried the grocerys in.

We played makeovers, fancy dress, we went on the trampoline. ( Ella tried doing a flip,she landed on her back… It was a complete and utter hilarious site.) We started to play tennis out in the backyard. Then inside, it was raining. Snuggled up waching a movie before Ella takes me home.
