The first time i miss’d
second time i almost hit
last time i hit far.

I ran to first base
I ran to second base fast
Then ran to last base.

I got a home run
Then ran back into line   
and then waited for a turn.

Mmm, That’s Tasty! by Neville Gardner
School Journal June 2012

WALT: Begin to use a range of scientific symbols, conventions, and vocabulary.
SC:      Complete a small science report on the taste + smell experiement

  1. There are 5 main flavour receptors. Sweet, Salty, Bitter, Sour and Umami.
List some foods fit each of the flavour receptors.  SHARE

  • Coffee
  • Vanilla
  • Salt KFC
  • Lemon Grapefruit
  • Sugar candy floss
Umami (savoury)
  • tomatoes  meat

  1. Record the words you didn’t know before. Add a picture or sentence to describe what they mean.

Papillae (p.26)
A small fleshy part of the tongue.
Receptor (p.26 )
they recognize tastes and send info to the brain
texture (p.25)
the feel or look of something
recognise (p.28)
identify something that you have had before

Question: Do our taste buds require smell? our taste buds require smell to help us taste they do that by  smelling because if smells nice it probably tastes nice.

Hypothesis:  I think that we won't be able to taste much. because we partly use our nose and eyes to taste.


1.Cover your eyes and block your nose.
2.Then but a jelly bean in your mouth chew but don't swallow.
3.See what you can taste then let go of your nose then see what you can taste.

Observations: when I blocked my nose I could only taste sweet but when I let my nose go I could taste the jellybeans properly.  

Conclusion: my hypothesis was correct when i did the experiment i could only taste sweet not the proper flavour.

Why 8 hours sleep is important

Getting 8 hours sleep is vital for everybody. Sleep  helps your body to heal and grow.

Sleep is a time when your body stops to repair itself. During this time your brain uses its imagination to create a dream.

Dreams can be different things. Some people think that dreams mean something but know one really knows if dreams do mean anything.

When your sleeping your mind is working to repair body parts from the previous or next day.

If you don't get any sleep you can become grump short tempered faint or not grow.

Dear Dagmar

My name is Lennyx, I am writing this to say thankyou for talking to us about your career pathway .

I really liked your speech about what you need to be a successful artist. I also liked the colour of your art pieces and the art itself I also liked it because it was creative and was based on your heritage.  

Yours sincerely

Tae kwon do recount

It was a cold crisp morning and we were lining up to go to Tae kwon do. As we emerged into the school hall our instructor was no where to be seen, but a couple of minutes later she appeared into the hall. We started the session with a warm up, we were doing horse stances and punching for our warm up. When we finished our warm up, we started punching drills. She showed us how to punch in Tae kwon do, and after she had finished the demonstration, my class and I tried the punches. There were three targets that were all different sizes. After we punched one we alternated targets. after that drill we learnt a counter attack where you jump like you are avoiding a lower or sweeping kick and then do 2 separate punches on different targets. After we punched one target we went to the next target. After we learnt how to get out of 2 different grabs and we finished of with a game of helicopters and fire.

Badminton recount

For the past 4 weeks some of the classes in our school have been practicing Badminton with our coach Robbie. For this weeks session  we were versing each other in pairs of 2. In the games that I was playing I tried to spike the shuttle, the fastest a shuttle has gone before is 260 kilometers per hour, I won a few games and lost a few games. The thing I liked the most a Badminton is that I developed my hand eye coordination a little bit more and the thing that I found hard is directing the shuttle in the right place but overall it was a good experience.

Watched Upon

Watched Upon

In the cold winter night,
the seven stars of matariki shine bright.
only once a year the seven shine,
waiting for someone else to fall in line.
Fall in line of men before
Seven brothers who love and adore
Seven sisters,  
urging to be free,
urging to find more
men to deceive.
To feel the sun on their face
To feel the rain trickling down
to bring back their race
trying to put mankind beneath them.
Festive nights, bond fire in the night fires light
shining so bright.

Temperature graph

Today I learnt to present my data as a line graph and an area graph

Bio poem

Bio poem

Smart, blue eyes, sandy brown hair,
Who loves video games science, pyrotechnics, and addictive ice cream
Who wonders if a Zombies apocalypse will occur  
Who fears Aliens, Sharks and dead bodies
Who feels happy when playing call of duty
Who is able to finish off a tub of ice cream
Who would like to live on a farm in a rural area, travel the world, go big game hunting  
Who dreams of being a business owner or a pilot
