Jonah Lomu aka a new Zealand legend
Died Wednesday 18th of November 2015.He was a legend to the All Blacks and one of the tries he scored was the best try in the rugby world cup history 1995. He was a great All Black, Hurricane and Blue. He had a wife and two kids. He was a left winger and huge aka Tank. He was one of my favorite All Blacks. Jonah was one of the most entertaining rugby players.His friend was the halfback for South Africa and also was the only person that could stop Lomu from scoring a try.

Sup Hunt’s. See you later guys. Grabbing my bike I was wheeling it to the truck. Hey Cam Shane said how are you,I’m good,that's good he replied. Come on then let’s go. Off we went first we went back to Hunters to grab some more stuff for the tent and picked up Sarah. While they got ready me and Hunt’s played some footy.
Ready boys yip,let's hit the road we had a stop at the petrol station and bought some gum and a pie each I , got a steak and cheese pie and Hunter got a butter chicken pie. Finally we got there. But we still had to find the holiday park. After we found it we made it to our spot. Then we unloaded the car and put up the tent. Well we were putting the tent up there were lots of wasps which made it harder and they were all in the tent until we sprayed some stuff in the tent. So we set up our bed.
Later on me and Hunt’s went for a walk. After about 5 minutes of walking we found the pool. Straight away we ran back to the tent and got into our togs,grabbed our towels and went for a swim. At one of the ends it was really deep and over our heads but at the other end it was up to our chests. The pools were heated and there was a spa pool. 1 hour later we hopped out and went back to the tent for tea.
The next day we went mountain biking. We went on the track to huka falls and back. We started the track. Half an hour into the bike it was really hot because in some spots we were biking on the edge of the cliff in the sun. But there was some shade by the jumps. At one stage we were able to see huka falls. Hay Hunter
I said we are nearly there yay he replied. Last minute Sarah said. Down the last straight we arrived there. I had already been to Huka Falls but we had look and took some pictures.Then we had a ice block. I had a Choc Bar and hunter had a Mango Frugu. On the way home Hunter fell off his bike and hurt his hand. It took about 4 hours to get back and 4 hours to get to Huka Falls. Yay we said we're back. Altogether we biked around about 14-16 km.
The next morning it was estar and we got a chocolate bunny and 3 easter eggs each. Come on guys lets go and we went home after packing everything up. It was raining and we fell asleep most of the ride.
Hopefully I can go mountain biking again it was an adventure.

Here is a picture of my maths task.We are learning about capacity which is like weight length.
I enjoyed learning this because I didn't know much about it before.We had to use our brains and order lightest and heaviest the top is the lightest and then so on till the heaviest. We had to work by ourselves but that helps us so the other person won’t do all the work for you.

I am blogging this because I enjoyed making it and I like it. Made this because i was inspired by Jeff Thompson. To make this camera I used cardboard and glued the card board on to the other bits. Here are two pictures of my camera. The one on the left is the back of the camera. The bottom square is the screen the little one on the left is to turn on or turn off the camera and luck last for the buttons section the small one on the right is when you go through the photos it is to go next and back.
Now up to the front.I have used a toilet paper roll for the shape of the lens and cut a circle and painted it for the front of the lens.
Later in the term, the whole school is taking part in a visual arts exhibition. You will have to make your own piece of visual art.
We are LEARNING, CREATING AND SHARING through the ARTs
Success Criteria of the art
- No larger than A3
- Must be super high quality (your absolute personal best)
- Must be a type of visual art
- Must be aesthetically pleasing (it has to look good)
- It must challenge you (aim high)
There is an example of how to do Task 2 on the wall.
Discuss with your learning buddy about all of the different types of visual art (there are lots!).
Write 3 of them below.
Task 2- Your plan
Please insert a picture of what your completed art will look like. (It will be either: an image from the internet, a google drawing or a rough draft).
Write a list of materials you will need.
If a material is not in the classroom, include how you will get it.
2.Toilet paper roll
4.Hot glue gun
7. Black paint
Write a list of steps to take.
1.Cut two 8 cm by 5 cm pieces of cardboard then paint them black and add tabs.
2.Then in one of the pisces cut a hole as round as a toilet roll.
3.Next cut two 5 cm by 2cm pieces with tabs on the side and paint them black.
4.Then glue the big pieces with the small pieces.
5.With the toilet roll carefully slide it in the whole to use as the lens.
6. then cut 4 little buttons and place them on the camera near the top.
7.Then cut one bigger button and place it on the top.
8.Last of all above the lens write Sony and there you have yourself a 3d homemade camera.
