My Identity

An Identity is what makes me ME, it is who I am. It is where I belong, what makes me special and unique and it makes me who I am.

I did my Identity because it was part of our Inquiry and our Inquiry is about embracing others we can't embrace others if we can't embrace ourselves first.

How I did it is by going on Google draw, we inserted a screenshot of my Identity and then posted it to my blog. So what is your Identity and what makes you YOU!

My Holiday Recount

Parakai Springs

“Wow, cool, awesome!” shouted my cousins. “Me first ” I said. In my amazing holidays I went to Parakai Springs to celebrate New Year’s.

During a bright lovely day we all arrived at Parakai Springs. When we settled at the camping place we all got changed and then went on the big blue slide. After that we went on the green slide. The funny thing was that the green slide was short but fast and the blue slide was long but slow. We were all having a great time but then decided to go to the main pools.

There was also an relaxation pool inside one building and then there was the main pool next to the other buildings. I liked the outside pool because it was very warm and clean. Inside the entrance building was a cafe, a small ice-cream shop, the changing rooms and the toilets. When leaving we have to have a stamp to show that you had been inside.

The first time I went on the slide it felt so slippery. During going down the slide you could lose your blue or black mat. My cousin lost his mat so he just stood in the middle of the slide like a clown and scaring strangers. There had to be a lifeguard and the bottom if the top if too much people were going all at one time and the bottom was getting crowded up. I probably went on the slide like a lot of times.

Later on it was lunchtime so I went to my Mum and said that I was hungry. Then she gave me two coupons for my sister and I. I went with my Grandpa to get whatever I wanted from the cafe. I got the chicken nugget combo and my grandpa got the fish and chips combo. After that my Grandpa got me an ice-cream, the flavour he got me was passion fruit because that was my favourite flavour. He got two scoops just for me and it was massive. We both went back and then they were all eating barbeque, salad, potato salad and pasta salad.

After we all eated we waited for ten minutes then went for another swim right after the ten minutes. We all went on the slide together after waiting for ten minutes. I went  to the main pools with my oldest sister. We were playing in the pool together. After that I decided to go to the slide she came on the slide with me. But then later on we all had to leave so everybody went to the girls and boys changing rooms changed and went to catch the bus back home.

When we got onto the bus I was sitting next to my sister listening to music on her ipod and then fell asleep. It was great spending time with my family at Parakai Springs to celebrate New Years. When we go to Parakai Springs next time I want to go on the blue slide a few more times.

Silly Story

Silly Story

On a wonderful Tuesday early morning a girl named Amanda walked to the Glen Innes Library. She walked in to return her last book she issued to the librarian and went to go and look for another book to read. Next she found a very interesting book and started to read it. It was about a Gingerbread man finding a treasure map and hunting for the treasure almost all day.

After she issued the book she decided to read it on her way home. Suddenly the Gingerbread man in the story popped out of the book! She was very surprised. She asked the Gingerbread, “how did you come out of the book Mr. Gingerbread man?”
The Ginger-bread man said, “I don’t know little girl.”
She responded to the Ginger-bread man, “oh no my name is not little girl my name is Amanda, what is yours?”
He replied, “my name is Ginger.” “nice to meet you Ginger” she exclaimed to the Gingerbread man.  
After a while he saw a piece of paper drop out of the book, he picked it up and looked at it.
He said to her, “it’s a treasure map.”
Amanda commented, “it looks similar to the treasure map that was in the story book.”
“Should we hunt for this treasure.” he whispered to Amanda, she replied with joy, “yes!”

They both went to Amanda’s shed and found a shovel and two big sacks and carried on. They went uphill, downhill, around roundabouts and also crossed roads. When the cars zoomed past they were staring at Ginger awkwardly. Next the treasure maps picture told them to pass a big willow tree. They both gazed around and there was the big willow tree all the way on the other side of the field, so they walked all the way to the other side.

They both looked at the treasure map to see where they had to go next and they had to pass a little cottage with a little fence. When they saw the little cottage they passed it and finally they came to a stop. Ginger groaned, “why did we stop?”   
“because we are here.” Amanda said with excitement. Ginger started to dig with the shovel they found from Amanda’s shed. A while later Ginger hit something hard and solid, they both carried it up and it was the treasure chest. Both of their eyes lit up with amazement when they saw the dirty treasure chest. They both opened the lid and saw Rubies, Diamonds, coins and Jewelry, it was like a dream. They put the treasure inside the two sacks and then headed off with the treasure.

On the way back to the library Ginger said, “I have to go back inside the storybook.” Amanda said with sadness, “but I want you to stay.” Ginger answered, “I have to go but it has been a great pleasure finding the treasure chest today.” Amanda said goodbye to Ginger, he vanished into the story book and she returned the book and went home. Amanda told her parents about the adventure that she had been on and lived happily ever after.
