Water Book Review

Water- By Geoff Havel.

This term I read the book Water. Water is about a girl named Tully who is forbidden to go into the water. When she is kidnapped, she learns why, when she enters the water, she turns green, and is able to live and breathe underwater. Tully was "created" by her father and Bill, but was taken away to Rivertown with her father, once her father learnt Bill's evil plans. 
The story takes place in a secret location, far away from anywhere.

I rated this book a 8/10 because it is entertaining and keeps you hooked most of the way through, except for a few bits that just drags on and gets boring. This book would be good for both girls and boys, aged 10 or older.

Weekly Reflection Week 1 T4

This week I have enjoyed Tech because we started to make our clocks. I am very proud of my design because it is unique and different, and Mr Davies liked it too! 
I learnt how to subtract decimals in maths, and I learnt many different strategies for it so it is really easy now!
Next week I am looking forward to practising for athletics more, especially sprints!

Term 4

It's the start of Term 4!! In the holidays my family and I went to Taupo for three nights. We went up the mountain (Mt Ruapehu) and played in the snow, we made snowmen, had snow fights and went sledding. It was really fun! We also went kayaking down the waikato river, and we saw some people bungee jumping off a cliff- scary! Then halfway through our Kayak trip we relaxed in a natural hot spring. It was almost too hot to stay in for long! I had a very fun trip!  

This term is athletics, and I am looking forward to sprints because it is really fun and I did quite well last year! I am also looking forward to N-Rock because I am part of the Dance Crew and I can't wait to see the final product!!

It's going to be a busy term but in 9 weeks there are holidays!
