On the First of June I went to a place to plant trees for Arbor
Day. Even the Mayor of Hamilton was there and we were planting trees
next to the Hamilton Zoo at Waiwhakareke Natural Heritage park. Only
Four people from Glenview School came to Arbor Day. Five people were
supposed to go, but Hone left Glenview School forever. We had to plant
about 23 thousand trees. I Planted about 30 trees.
Then we all went back up. Me, Dallan, Brady, Mikaere plus Mr Hazlett all
went to McDonalds to have a cone of vanilla ice cream. YUM!
We were meant to be back at school at 3.00PM but we got there 10 minutes
before Break 2 was done. We were at school for about one and a half
We had a great day planting trees and spending time off school.

Warming up, just looking around at the puffed red hot faces
drooling like dogs. Feels like eels swimming in my stomach. Walking up
to the starting line. Clap as the two wooden blocks smack together. The
noise of everybodys feet tramping like a stampede. Trying to get a good
spot. All the girls trying to not get stomped over. All of us
competitive while everyone else sits on a big roll of tarpaulin cheering
us on. The teachers all around the cross country course pointing to us
where to go. As we pass Mr Mangan on our second lap it makes me feel
good. “One more lap,” I say thinking to myself. As I get to the cones I
sprint. Running up as fast as I could. I feel so proud of myself because
I did it non stop. As I sit down my face is brighter than a big round

When I went to Australia we went to the zoo on Wednesday. We looked at a lot of stuff.
Then my mum said, “Carla laa here is something you will like.” Then I
turned around and it was a butterfly house. We went inside.
It was so cool, but when I looked there was a big butterfly on my
Then I said, “Get it off me!’ because it freaked me out.
“I thought you liked butterflies”, said mum. “Let’s get out of
here!” So we did. Then we went to the fat spiders. I
got out of there pretty quickly because it was disgusting.
Finally we went back to our motel in Melbourne. I really liked our holiday in Australia.

Player of the Day
Last Saturday I played Rugby.
I play for Melville and we played Varsity. I got 7 tries and player
of the Day. My position is wing. For player of the day I got a
ribbon, then we went to the club rooms at 5.00 and I waited for my
name to be called out and they told me to come up and get my
hoodie. It has Melville and Player of the Day on it.

On Saturday I went to the Hamilton gardens.
In the Victorian gardens we went to catch tadpoles. We got
lots of them in fact we got so many the pond was nearly empty
of its tadpoles.
In the jungle part of the glass house building we saw 3 pitcher plants, one was yellow, one was green, and one was red. In the desert part of the glass house building we saw some BIG cactus.
In the lake we saw the koi carp fish jumping out
of the water, they catch mosquitos. A swallow
was catching mossies too. We saw
the live turtle that was lucky, but one of the only
things we didn’t see was the eel.It was a great
day becauseyou don’t see the turtle or the koi carp fish
jumping out of the water every day.
I found out that some of the car parks used to be net ball courts.

This morning my dad found a stick insect on our door.
He picked it up and put it in an old ice cream container with gladwrap on top. He poked holes in the gladwrap with a fork.
I brought it to school and showed just about everybody in the school.
At morning tea Mr F took a photo of it. I didn’t eat any
morning tea because i was too busy with the stick insect.
A boy in another clasroom whacked the insect with his pink hat. After that it has a broken leg.
After the bell went for the end of morning tea I stuck the stick insect on the tree outside Room 8.
I wonder if he’s still there? He is! We just went for a look and he has climbed higher up the tree.

On Saturday, in Auckland, I had two choices. Number one
was to go to the museum. Number two was to go to the star
I chose the museum and it was really cool. I saw a
green moray eel and a moa. I saw the dinosaur bones from the
T-Rex named Sue. I found out that the female T-Rex on
Walking with Dinosaurs was Sue. I also found out that the
Auckland Zoo once had a male elephant.
I saw a species of Salmon in the Weird and Wonderful and in the Wild Child we saw a stuffed stoat or a ferret.
The next day was sunny in Auckland so I decided to go to the
park. When I was going out I saw a weta in the hole of
the gate. When I was on the bridge I saw fish in
the stream. I rushed to get my net. I rushed down
to catch one. I kept on missing, but at the end, when I
saw one under the weed, I caught one.
Later on we went to the pet store to get a pet. I saw some snake
head turtles and some blue tongue lizards and a white goggley eyed
fish and a bearded dragon and a litte puppy
labrador. Kelly decided to get a Siamese cat. It meowed
a lot in the car. It was very shy. When I
last saw it she was in a corner.
I would have liked to have got a snake head turtle.
