Our School Netball Year 7 A-Team

Do you know that for that past three weeks of our netball season we have lost three in a row, that is so not cool.

Well every Tuesday our years 6 - 8 netball teams have our own netball games down at the Morrin Road netball courts.

As we had our netball warm up before our netball game I asked our coach Ashley if we were going to win or lose. During our netball game we got the ball to our end of the court just in time for the hooter, then I said “oh man” because we were so close to getting a goal.

During the second quarter I knew that we would have to try our best to win this game, but unfortunately we lost. Even though for the past three weeks we have lost, I think that this week was the best game we have played.

I think that for the focus of our next few games should be on our defence so we can win the rest of our games so that we can get to go to the finals. Our defenders have to defend every ball and the shooters need to shoot the ball into the goal which will mean that they need to practice this more.

Finally it was the end we all went home puffed out and really feeling tired and awesome, luckily no one went home injured and crying.

Wow it was the second day of our class geometry and I found out that the interior angles of a triangle add up to 180 degrees. So this picture on the left side of the page is an example of a shape i made out of a triangle . This picture use to be a triangle.

The picture above shows the inventor of a first invented "Camera"
Joseph Nicephore Niepce

Do you know that in 1685 a man called Joseph Nicephore Niepce invented the first ever cameras in the town miles south of Paris. The reason why the camera's were invented, is because artist often reflected on opinions of the painters in their art work however, photos exactly show how an animal or person actually looks like.

Wow! it was the best holiday ever watching all the events of my cousin Simons 21st birthday .

But before you wonder what i’ m talking about it was my best day ever. Well on the 30th of April my family and I went down to a hall at a place called Ranui for my cousin's 21st birthday.

The thing that entertained me was when we all dressed up as if we were in the 80’s, but if didn’t wore a costume we were not allowed to go in the party. I was dressed as my Nana cause she always dressed liked she was still in the 80’s. In my head i knew that my Nana would win cause she is a expert.

Getting ready to go up to see who won I wished that my nana’s was their watching

“Yay” it was Finlay the end. We all went home happy and laughing the whole way back to our houses because at the end of the birthday boy had to drink this birthday cup full with red wine.

We all went home tired and filled with allot of joy and laughter.

Geometry Translation

In room twenty we have been learning about geometry. So on my picture above we went on our Google docs drawing then we tried to translate our shapes to one place to another . We a also trying to explore what and how translating is. These are the steps I took to making this Translation:
1. We had to go on Google drawing and get a grid to put on.
2. Next we had to draw a shape on our grid, in my case it was a square.
3. After that we had to take a screen shot of our grid and upload it onto our blogs.
4. Last of all I published it on m blog for all of you to see.
I really look forward to learning more about Geometry!

History of a telephone

On March the 7th , 1876 a person called Alexander Graham Bell invented the first ever telephone. Back then the telephones in those days looked very different to what the telephones today looks like , they were a lot bigger than our one's they also looked very tricky to use, like for a example there were no numbers on it .

The North Shore Torando

Wow! did you know that on the 3rd of May at around 3pm an terrifying tornado hit North Shore looking like a mean beast. That tornado was so serious that it damaged around the central business district taking with the beasts the roof. As I was watching the news the tornado dangerously left up a Philippine workingman and threw him to the other side of the city and got hit on a building getting his head sliced on the head into halves, it so sounded so discussing so that's when I stopped watching the news for the day. But before i can carry on the one in Alabama was bigger than the one here in North Shore.
