Nadias Queative thinking

Are you more like a river, a lake, an ocean or a waterfall? Why?

I feel like I am all of these apart from a lake because lakes are usually quite still and don't move a lot and I am always up and feeling energetic.

River- Because I like to flow fast and sometimes when I am annoyed or angry I get quite rapid inside me like Rapids in a river.

Waterfall/Ocean- Because when something has gone wrong my body sinks like a waterfall and I feel like giving up but I don't because waterfalls lead to oceans and then I rise back up into a never give up mode and I Spring myself back up to the top like the waves of an ocean.

The sad story - By Maggie

 The Sad Story

To start this terrible story let’s go back ten years six months and 11 days …

Once there lived a little girl called Maggie. She was an only child. She lived a happy life with her mum and dad until two years later. But we are not up to that part of the story yet. So yes, she lived a happy life pulling the toilet paper out of the toilet rack and dragging it around the house, doing puppet shows with her dad, playing on the tramp with her mum and having tea parties with her nana.  

Then the tragic thing happened two years later. Her mum was in the hospital and Maggie could not see her for two days. Then on the third day her dad let her come into the hospital with him..

When they got inside the hospital. Dad said to Maggie. ”You have got to be quiet." Maggie could not speak properly because she was only two so she did not respond.

As they walked into her mum’s room Maggie stood there. Her mum was holding something in her hands.  “Come over here Maggie, ” said mum quietly.  “Look it is your new baby sister Hannah. " Maggie stood there in shock. It was ludicrous. Why did they need another? They have me. What are they going to do with me? What if they throw me out?

A few weeks later...

They did not discard me but I found out something … I was not the only kid any more.  No more me all the time.

Josh's year 4 writing

Lately I've been searching through my Google Drive and I've found this, read it, tell me what you think! This is all unedited year 4 writing by the way!

I've always been good at writing, here is one of my story's!

Hi! I’m a turtle; this is a story of my childhood. One day I went out for a swim and my mum said, “Don’t swim far!” But because I was a disobedient fellow I didn’t listen. Suddenly a shape appeared above me and something jumped into the water. It had a helmet and this strange suit on. Then I remembered my mum saying those creatures were deadly. The creature snatched up a stick with a sharp pointed end, which my mum called a spear gun. I dashed off as fast as I could; I had to warn the inhabitants of the reef. “EVERYBODY SWIM, HIDE! HUNTERS ARE NEAR!” We swam for the rocks just as the hunter popped into view. Unexpectedly a baby angelfish started to cry. Luckily the creature peered over the rocks but didn’t find us! I learnt a lesson from that day – listen to your elders. And that’s my story.

Tonight brothers, we shall have a clandestine meeting!

(At the meeting)

Alright brothers tonight we shall rob our favourite shop and add the stuff to our collection!

The location of the store is at the corner of Alpine Avenue, next to that scoldy fish & chips shop and has that park on the other side.

Now I hate to break it to you but when we arrived the place was blocked off with cones and officers!

It was like they knew that we were coming! And that’s disturbing because it could mean we have a traitor in our midst!

So we asked the cops what was happening and it turns out that Fraser had already come by.

Now when somebody robs our favourite store, we get angry. But not just angry, angry with steam coming out of our nose and ears and our face is as red as a beetroot!

So we told the cops that we were gonna rob the store but our arch enemy had got there first.

The cops were very soft hearted so they started to feel sorry for us!

To Be Continued...

Trying to do Flips by Jacob and DC

DC and Jacob have been trying to learn some gymnastics because the bar tricks are getting a bit boring.
We've tried a front handspring and we have succeeded. Now we are trying to do a front flip on a gym mat and gradually do a flip on the ground but we have been yoloing the flips. We keep on trying but can't stop putting our hands on the ground because we are used to doing front handsprings. DC was thinking of doing a backspring but it seemed to hard and complex.
The next trick we will attempt will be a backflip on a tramp and land it.

Plane driving by Callum M

I fainted, but when I woke up I realised that I was flying a plane. After a while I realised that I was afraid of heights so I started wiggling this thing in the middle. I think it was something to do with driving the plane, well that broke so I started to look around and I saw a pilot. I asked him “Did I need this?” As I was throwing it around in the plane “UM YEAH That was the thing that drove this  this plane!” He said. “Mayday! Mayday! Going down!” “The speaker isn't even on man,” “Oh, ah, yeah I , I knew that thank you. But I already knew.” I grabbed the speaker and then a weird voice came through it. “That’s what the guys in the back are for.” I wish you could vaporize yourself because he isn’t helping me at all. “Oh ok then push the big red button.” But the plane's response was “Self Destruct” SELF DESTRUCT! Yes in 3 seconds” said the plane.


Josh's new addition

I was sooo thrilled with my new addition.

Happy tears welled up in the corner of my eyes. Some tears were let loose, it was like a stream silently gliding down my cheek.

A few landed on the little kitten and glistened on her white specked thin black coat.

Her overwhelming joy to play was so pure and unmistakable, that well, it would feel wrong not to!

The torturing rain

The Torturing Rain

Our classroom was rattling with noise while the booming rain was splattering down on the roof.

As I stepped out onto the slimy damp ground I felt my shoes slither with wetness.

I was wearing a bright yellow vest with my name on it.

I shouted out to Paige, “My shoes are soaked and I hadn't even been out there for a minute.”

I ran rapidly to Piako Tahi to do my peer mediation job. When I stepped into the fresh carpet of Piako Tahi I could sense the warmth of the classroom wrap into my skin.

We were asked to supervise in there until the teachers had sorted out the leaks in their classroom. All the leaks were coming from the cloak bay. Some were from the roof and some even coming from the tip of the windows.

Finally it was time for us to head to another classroom.

 When I stepped outside the classroom door I could feel the breeze and the rain spray towards me. I was gobsmacked. My hair was drenched and my shoes were saturated. I didn’t know what to do.

I dashed to LC11 and when I walked into the class they were all dancing and singing. At first I felt like I was at a party then I remembered that I was actually at school.

We went back to Piako Rua and, well, I was running like lightning. My foot splattered right into an enormous puddle. I wobbled and I wobbled until I finally got my balance back. But my foot was now the soggiest my foot had ever been. Now that was one showerey lunch time!

The Lost - By Josh Smit

The Lost

Have you ever had that sinking feeling?  When the worst possible outcome happens? When you just wish you could go back in time?

That happened to me tonight.  I had an ominous feeling that my new kitten Puma, had ran away...

It was dark and cold when we got home and as soon as we pulled up the drive we charged inside and asked dad if he’d let Puma out. He replied, 
“No, I haven’t seen her since this morning!” And that was it… those few words started the panic! First we had a good look around the house, then in her most common hiding spots. I started to freak out.

I grabbed my jacket and a torch and headed out into the unknown (A.K.A. my backyard). She hasn’t got a collar yet so if she was found they wouldn’t have a clue who the owner was. When we went around the back we heard some soft miaows coming from next door! We trooped around to our neighbour and asked them to open their garage. As we looked into the garage Puma shot out as if electrocuted, but we found her and that’s all that matters!  We don’t want to loose her again!

(We lost her again 2 nights later!)

Nadia's dog Jasper

My Dog Jasper

About a year ago my family decided to get a cute little puppy. Well he turned out to be very naughty. At first I really did not want to call our dog Jasper. But now I actually quite like the name! Jasper is a schnoodle ( schnauzer crossed with a poodle). He is a boy and Jasper has dark brown eyes and light black fur. We have noticed that in the middle of Jasper's fur is a golden streak that has just appeared lately. Whenever we leave home and we open the gate to get the car out Jasper decides to be naughty and runs out the gate down to someone's compost. We try to stop Jasper but every time he comes back with something disgusting from the persons compost. We tried taking Jasper to about 3 different puppy schools but he will just not behave. We have decided to just try and train Jasper at home now. Jasper is very naughty but he is also very cuddly, loving and very energetic and our family still loves him a lot!

Our P.I's! -By Nadia Mabey

Our P.I’s!

Everyday in Qzealand we have a P.I. Lately we have had some very good ones. Our first P.I was actually from me. I did it about countries of the world. Everyone seemed to really enjoy it.

Our second P.I was from Dan. He did his about his cat Tiger. It was very interesting.
The next P.I was from T.C’s dog Cliquot. He did his about: Why do dogs roll in stinky stuff? Clicquot did a very good 

 Then we had Noah's P.I. He did his about catapults. Noah had very good audience interaction because he got 4 people to try and make a catapult.
Our next P.I was from Emma and her question was what were toys like 100 years ago? She did an awesome job of making some toys that they actually used 100 years ago. 

Then we had Megan's P.I which was about bees. Everyone got to try some honey that Megan's family had made.

After that we had Fraser’s P.I about bravery. It was very interesting and he had made a shield where we all wrote something about something that we had done which had been brave.

Girls night out! -By Josh

Girls Night Out

Here's the story of girls! If you want to be a girl follow my lead. This is how my attempt with the girls went!

"Hey gurls, let's talk about gurly things like cute kittens, and, and, um, your, PONIES yes, yes, that's it ponies and pink unicorns and rainbows."

"Jules?" they replied, "How about we go to the movies like totes" 
"Yeah like totes! Like totes!" I replied. But when they said movies I thought they meant let's watch Cinderella or The Sleeping Beauty!

But No they said "Let's watch Barbie!" And Barbie is a boys movie! Isn't it? I mean you've all watched Barbie. Haven't you!?

 I was flabbergasted when they said it was a girls movie! The movie was sooo good. But because I thought it was a boys movie I'd watched 5 times!

After that I was like "Let's go to  macers!" They just rejected the idea like totes and said "Let's just get a smoothie!"

Emma's Nana - Scanner phone

So, last weekend I went with my Nana to her work at the library in woodville.  The whole library was silent until…
The phone rang.  Nana went to answer the phone but she picked up the scanner instead.  She didn’t realize for a while.  She was getting all frustrated.  It was SO funny.  Eventually she realized nobody was talking to her on the phone ( scanner) and that the phone was still ringing.
