It was fun and the water was really cold. We took our dog Sunny with us  but she was scared when we took her to the shallow pond. She loved it but she did not know how deep it actually was!!!! Sunny stepped in the  pond and started dog paddling really fast. Tamaki my sister who was holding Sunny got pulled in the water until they got to the other side. The water went up to Tamaki's waist!!! And to cross the pond again Mum on the other side said "come!" so Sunny dived in. It was a really good dive except she forgot to tuck her chin in so it ended up as a belly flop but she did kick off the hedge!!!!!
When Sunny dived in Tamaki got splashed!! And once again draged Tamaki in the water. So that was Sunny's really first dive and that is what I did in the holidays.]]>
<![CDATA[ski and skate day]]>Wed, 16 Sep 2015 07:16:24 GMThttp://manuka2015.weebly.com/mao/ski-and-skate-dayLast Friday the whole Arrowsmith had ski/skate day. I choose skiing because I decided that I have not been skiing before so I will do it . next year I am going to do skating. At the skiing place  played with my friend Alex. keeping control of  the skis and the snow boots were really heavy. But after a while the skis got really heavy and me and Alex got too tired so we took our skis off and started to play in the soft powdery snow we tried to climb the little steep hill near the magic carpet. it was really hard to climb!!! We went home at 3.00 o'clock. ski/skate day was so much fun!!!!]]><![CDATA[What I Have Enjoyed At School]]>Thu, 03 Sep 2015 20:31:10 GMThttp://manuka2015.weebly.com/mao/what-i-have-enjoyed-at-school1This week have enjoyed......

<![CDATA[speeches!!!!!]]>Thu, 23 Jul 2015 03:57:06 GMThttp://manuka2015.weebly.com/mao/speechesThis term we are going to do our school speeches. Our topic is about that if you were a native NZ animal what will you be. I decided I will do the NZ fur seal and so did my friends Lydia and Alex.

To start our speeches we get a little booklet with all the things you have to have in your speech. In your speech you have to put in why you want to be this animal. I said that I want to be a NZ fur seal is because that I could warm up in the hot sun and swim around with my friends.

I am not very looking forward to present my speech in front of my whole class. Every year I let myself down by being nervous, so this years goal is to not get scared!! ]]>

Demon Dentist is a interesting story so let me tell you the blurb of the book........

Children would put a tooth under their pillow for the tooth fairy, but in the morning they would wake up to find...a dead slug; a live spider, hundreds of earwigs creeping and crawling beneath their pillow evil was at work. but who or what was behind it?

<![CDATA[Run Run Run!!!!!]]>Thu, 28 May 2015 04:41:51 GMThttp://manuka2015.weebly.com/mao/run-run-runAhhhhhhhhh!!!! The time has come. My Dad is going to pick me up from school  and go to the A&P SHOW GROUNDS!!!!!!!! As I walk slowly to Dad's car, I feel butterflies flying in my tummy. The car starts as I sat nervously on the car seat. Finally we get there. The butterflies are not going away in fact they are just growing bigger and bigger. Then it is my turn to run 2km. I am so nervous I can't even feel my body as I go walk to the starting line. We do warm ups and stretches. READY, SET... BEEP!!!!!!!!! I run off with shaking legs. I run and run to catch up to my friend Kasey. Soon she runs out of sight I run fastest i'v ever ran. then I start to see Kasey again she looks as if she is puffed too. See starts walking, now I walk too and catch up to her. She is painting like she just finished running from Christchurch to Ashburton. I can finally see the finish line spray painted white. I run  and run even though I didn't feel myself running. As I walk to my seat i scream to myself, "YAY I've finished the race!!!!!" People that had raced with me are chatting about what placing they think they came. I just sat there and did not say anything because the thing I knew was that...........I did my B.E.S.T!!!!!
<![CDATA[Pitch Perfect 2!!!!!!]]>Mon, 25 May 2015 06:35:06 GMThttp://manuka2015.weebly.com/mao/pitch-perfect-2On Saturday I went to the movies with my friend Lydia, at 5:50 p.m. As I waited in my room I  looked at the clock. Tick tock tick tock the clock was striking at 5:00 p.m.I waited a little more till I burst out of the room shouting "Its 5:30p.m!!!" we had to leave at 5:30 because we had to pick up Lydia at her house.

As I ran off to the car as fast as my legs could carry me. I sat down on the car seat and put on my seatbelt on we set off really fast.We reached Lydia's house I shot out of the car and called her over to the car.Lydia and I got into the car and went to the movies.

as Lydia and I waited in the huge line at the counter my legs got tired and even more tired. finally it is our turn to order juice and popcorn I chose sprite and Lydia chose cola. We seated our selfs in a comfy  seat and waited for the movie to begin.
