On Friday 11th September...........
Arrowsmith got the choice of going Skiing or Snowboarding up MT HUTT or Ice Skating at ALPINE ICE!!
I chose Skiing!!
Well I got to school at 6;55 a.m!!!! We found out who was in what car. Dad and I took Mao and Mrs Mackenzie.
When we first go to the lesson, we had to learn how to put one ski on!!
After we managed to get on one ski, we had to shuffle our way around the circle, then back to our other ski.
When we put our other ski on we had to shuffle around the circle again!! :D ( P.S we didn't have poles the whole day!! ) Any way, now it was time to go up the magic carpet!!! The magic carpet is a slow moving conveyor belt for us to stand on. This is all in a long container, decorated with fairy lights!! At the start you have to give a wooden Spongebob a high-five!! Any way when you reach the top, you ski off the conveyor belt, and find yourself up the top of the learners slope!!! We did plenty of going up the magic carpet during the day!! Sometimes Mao and I would have a break and just play in the snow. What, it was a great opportunity to see so much snow!! We found a great place to slide down!!
AND THAT WAS SKI/SKATE DAY!!!!

Maori Artist: Dick Frizzell

What sort of art does he do?
He specializes in different types of kiwiana art and drawing kiwi icons. Guess what...DICK FRIZZELL WAS THE CREATOR OF MR 4-SQUARE!!! HOW COOL IS THAT!!
How has Maori art changed over time?
In the past, Maori art was based on things for tattoos and carvings. Nowadays it can be drawn to represent things important to new zealand. For example, the koru's meaning is new life, growth, rebirth and a deep connection to the earth.
