Tori's Narrative

1: Jack walked to the back of the bus and slumped down in his seat. “25...26...27..Perfect” His teacher counted the amount of kids on the bus, she was a worry wart. The bus started and everyone jolted forward. Jack was excited, his class was going to a science lab. Jack loved science, he loved the thought of blowing off his eyebrows or discovering some form of bacteria nobody knew about. He had been waiting for this trip forever! He was so excited he couldn’t get to sleep for weeks! The ride took forever and Jack was only entertained by one thing...Emma Morrison. She was the prettiest girl in their class, her blonde hair, blue eyes, soft skin and gorgeous personality were few of the many great things about her. Just looking at her made Jack go wobbly. No one knew Jack liked her because he had no friends. Jack had day dreams about Emma and always tried to impress her or get her attention by back chatting to the teacher or making funny comments about other people. He liked how she always flipped her hair when she walked. The only thing was she didn’t like him back.


2: “Hello Students, my name is Mr. Martin, I will be your guide today”. Jack was so excited this was his dream place. “Thank whoever invented science” he said to himself. Emma was so bored all this smarty pants knowledgy stuff made her disgusted. Jack was lost in his deep thoughts of becoming a famous scientist. But before he knew it he was more than lost in thought...he was lost in the science lab. Jack looked around the room, he wasn’t alone he saw Emma. But only Emma. “Hey Emma” Jack asked “Where’s our class?” “I don’t know where the are.” Emma replied. “Should we go look for them?” she continued. “I guess we could” said Jack...”Shall we hold hands?” he asked hopefully. Emma just flipped her hair and walked off.


3: Emma and Jack walked for about two minutes. “My legs hurt” moaned Emma. “We’ve been walking forever!” Jack rolled his eyes. “So Emma....” Jack started to say “Where are you going?” asked a deep voice. “After this place the mall” said Emma. “You’re coming with me” said the voice. The man was a security guard, a big muscly guy with a pink badge in the shape of a poodle. He grabbed hold of Emma and Jack and led them towards a jail cell looking room. Jack walked in and sat down quietly while Emma struggled to hold on to the bars while the guard pulled her into the cell.


4. Time went by...Emma called for help numerous times while Jack tried to dig his way out with a yoghurt spoon. Meanwhile Jack’s class was having a blast! Everyone was playing with gloopy green liquids and studying chemical reactions. “Jack this is all your fault” Emma yelled. “Wha... MY fault?” Jack asked. “Yes... if you weren’t so cute I wouldn’t of been distracted!” Emma put her hands over her mouth like she shouldn’t of said that. Jack smiled to himself. “What did you say?” he asked. “Uh....I said if you didn’t smell like puke I wouldn’t have been distracted....yeah that’s what I said” Emma replied.

5: Emma just looked away...embarrassed. Jack was so happy...Emma thought he was cute! Jack felt so happy it was unexplainable! The happiness continued when Jack saw a way out of the cell. There was a vent shaft in the roof and a foot stool which Emma was using to paint her toenails. “Hey Emma...I think there’s a way out of here” he said. Emma looked surprised. “You climb on my shoulders then you climb up through the vent and pull me up.” “Ok” Emma said. When Jack and Emma got into the vent they crawled through for about five minutes before they were just above their class. Jack tried to turn around to tell Emma but his foot got stuck in between two bars in the ground.

6: “Aaaaaaah!” said Jack as his foot fell. Emma rushed over...”Jack are you ok?” Emma asked. “I...I think so” Emma looked scared. “Grab my hand Jack” she said holding out her arm as far as she could stretch it. Jack held her hand....it felt like heaven. Emma pulled her arm back but Jack didn’t budge. She tried again....nothing. “Jack I just want you to know that if you die here I always had a crush on you...ever since kindergarten” she told him. “Me too....I mean you though” he said. Emma finally pulled him out of the bars. Emma hugged him...Jack was frozen, was this really happening? Emma and Jack climbed out of the vent and joined their class in a line hopping onto the bus. Emma sat next to Jack on the bus. “Emma” Jack asked.. “Will you be my friend?” “Of course I will” Emma replied.

The Bake Sale

On Thursday we continued the bake sale. We thought that we did so well on Wednesday we thought we could do it again. But this time there was different things to eat. There was Chocolate Crunch, Muffin Surprise ( the surprise was there was caramel in the middle), Chocolate Slice and Honey Crackle. These were all yummy things to eat, they were so yummy we sold out again!! We want to say thank you to everybody who brought something. We had loads of fun. With all of their help we made over $200 all the money is going to the Red Cross.

Room 9's Bake Sale

On Wednesday the 25th of August me and my friends had a bake sale outside Room 9. Fran, Lily, Emily, Maia and I organized, planned and held the bake sale. There were Cookies, Mallow Pops, Chocolate Crackle, Doughnuts, Peppermint Slice,Chocolate Crunch, Colourful Crackle, Brownie, Jam Biscuits and Afghans. We sold out in 15 minutes and earned over $200. The money that we raised with be going to the Red Cross to help the flood in Pakistan. We loved every second of it and we were glad we could help such a good cause. If you are thinking of doing a Bake Sale we highly recommend it because it's so much fun, you make lots of money and so many people enjoy the food. So give it a go! By Tori

Kyla's Book Review Half Men Of O


My Book Review

How would you feel if you entered another world because a funny talking man made you enter it. Then in that world a different man is trying kill you because of your birthmark on your wrist. Well that's what happened to one girl called Susan with help from her cousin Nicholas in this story. Susan has a mark on her wrist. It had two parts. Each one was shaped like a tear drop curved like a moon. One was bright red and the other golden brown. I like this story because it's one of those books you can't stop reading and it is packed full of adventure . When you read it feels like your mind enters a different world. I think this is a book for 10 years old and older because it might be hard to understand.

Home Grown

Home Grown



This term, room nine are learning about Home Grown. We have done lots of diffferent types of activtives for this topic. We did theses activtives with our whole pod.We some different activtives on the first day of term three. We did things like colouring and dying New Zealand icons, we also made chocolate crackes, lerent to play Rakau sticks and last of all we played relays and did three legged races.



In art time we had to choose a New Zealand icon the best represents us and what we do.



These are the steps that we did to make our great arkwork.



- First we had to pick an icon.

- Then we needed to draw the picture that we choose in to our art books. We had to make sure that it was big enough to fit a fat crayon into all the gasps.

- After that we lightly sketched the copy on a white A4 piece of paper.

- We went over the pencil with chalk making sure that they we not thin lines.

- When we had done that we coloured the picture with crayon and we couldn't have any white becuase it would turn BLACK!

- After we had coloured it in we needed to dye. (not literally.) (Just the painting.)

- Now there up on our wall. YAY!

David's Half Men Of O Review

Imagine there's a hidden world in your backyard. Now imagine someone in that world wants you dead.Now imagine a pirate took you to that world.This has become a reality for Susan Ferris and Nick Quin.The Half-Men Of O is Narnia meets Alice In Wonderland.The book is Good for boys and girls 10+(long words).Even though I do think the book could do with less drama and more action (I'm a boy) it still made me want to turn the page. The author gave me a clear picture of what was happening in every sentence but I did have to use my imagination for some of the characters eg. Jimmy Jaspers. Overall I give the Half-Men Of O a 4.5/5.

Emily's Book Review:The Half Men of O


Emily's Book Review

The Half Men of O

The half men of O is a great book about Susan and Nick going on an adventure though O. Susan's birth mark could save O or could it, and what is a blood cat, what are bird folk and who is odo cling?

It's a tale of how someone like shy Susan overcomes her fears and is stronger than anyone else, but she is just a mixie. Can she save O? Yes, no, MABYE the main thing is if she can it's NOT without the help of all her new friends and cousin Nick.

In my opinion it is one of the best book I have read mainly because it is full fantasies and bad guys so if you like badess and fantasies mooched together you need to read it NOW! ! !

Raven's half men of O review


This is my review of the half men of O


This story is about a girl named Susan and a boy named Nick and they go on an adventure to save the land of O on the way they meet Jimmy Jaspers, Breeze, Brand and the evil Odo Cling. During there adveture there was lot of high tension points like the blood cat.

Great for reader who like fantasy and something a bit weird for me I think I would rate it a 4.5/5 but thats just my opinion.
