My Net-book Reflection!!!

This is my reflection about my Net-book. I am doing this based on why I like working on my Net-book and why I don't like working on my Net-book

The Year of the Net-book ( make up your own title for your reflections about using a Net-book this year)

Make notes in this table of all the pros and cons of having a Net-book.
The things I liked about having my Net-bookThe things I did not like about having my Net-book or the problems I had during the year.eg. it’s made it much easier to …learn on the net-books because instead of getting up to use the dictionary I could just make a new tab and look the word up. It is easier to work on it because I can post to my blog faster than waiting for the multimedia stationMy dislike about having Net-book is that some times the Internet works slow, and another thing about having our Net-books is that we don’t always get to play game but I rather learn than play.

The thing that I like about having my Net-book is that we get to take it home and that when we go home most of us can get the Internet from home.

Now use your notes to create a paragraph about the good things (there are a few sentence starters to help you if you need them).

This year I have really _______________Enjoyed_________ having a Net-book to work on because …

Another thing ….
There are many reasons why ….
Furthermore having a Net-book has meant that ….
Most definitely the best thing …..

This year I have really enjoyed having my Net-book because I like to look up word and keep them in my head and I like to look up the word because I could try memorise the definition.
Having a Net-book is really really fun because I can play games at home and I can get the Internet at home which is even better but having the opportunity to have a Net-book to work on is amazing and I never thought that all the time I wouldn't get A laptop till I was about 18 year old but then again here I am now working on a Net-book.

Now use your notes to create a paragraph about the things you didn’t like or the issues you encountered or came across.
The thing I haven’t liked about having a Net-book is that I hate it when the Internet gets to slow then I have to wait for about a minute just to get back on the Internet.5
Net-book writing is much easier than writing with pencil and paper because I would clearly like to work on a Net-book because I like to play typing games as well.

As much as I have loved having a Net-book there are some things that I haven’t liked.....
I haven’t liked some things about it because I when I go on stuff like google docs it sometimes says google docs error please refresh your page and as I refresh it, it take about a minute for it to load again.

What are some of the biggest differences in your learning using a Net-book the advantages for your learning (you may have covered some of these already in your likes).
The biggest difference I think about having a Net-book is easier to have a learning mind set to what you need to do even though I wonder out of my work I do eventually get back to it.

What has been the biggest challenge to you in terms of managing yourself and your learning using a Netbook? Have you been in the ‘right place and space’ ? Have you been Cyber Smart?
I have no idea if I have been in the right place and space at the right time? I am not sure that I have been Cyber smart either.

The hardest thing …The greatest challenge for me …
From time to time ... I do get to learn but then I wonder away from my work and I get distracted by other people.
Most of the time ...

What if it was decided that the Netbook Pilot Scheme was a failure and you had to go back to pen and paper?

I think … it would be absolutely stink and I probably would cry if I herd we had Netbook’s and we didn’t even get it
It would be …
If the Netbook Scheme failed and …

When you have finished delete all the red text.

6 Hour Drive!!!

A short while ago, me and my family went for a 6 hour drive to Taranaki (this is my home town) for my aunties funereal. She was buried in a coffin made of flax as surprising as it sounds, she weaved it.
It was my first time coming into Taranaki to meet the rest of my family, I meet my uncle Ropata (he’s a true Maori) I meet most of my cousins and my Nana's and gran-pa's and every body else.
I knew that I would be shocked when I saw my aunties body and I was but not as much.
I really want to go back for Christmas holidays to see my cousins, my uncles and aunties.
Everyone was crying after the funeral and I never wanted to leave my auntie but I had too.
When we left to go home the next day, I really really wanted to cry cause it had been to long for me stay and not want to go home.
I said “I will miss you guys”
My uncle said “We will miss all of you too”
“BYE” said my mum
“BYE” they all said
“I hope we get to go there again”
“Me too, did you have fun with the girls”
“Then we might as well go in the Christmas holidays”
“YEEP” i screamed

Matakana Fair

Going up North was a long trip, It was so long I fell asleep half way there.

As I woke up 2 hours later, I was ready to eat. I yawned loud giving my mum a huge fright “WOW” she said “don’t scare me again I might crash,”
“ok” I replied in a sigh I said hungrily.
“Wait“ she said and we pulled up into the McDonald's drive thru
“ may i please take your order” I heard “ yes” replied my mum .
“What do you want,” inquired mum
“ a double cheese burger combo please”,
“with what drink?” she said
i replied with a answer saying “coke please”
‘’ok Coke coming right up”
We drove to the window, my order came through
“thank-you “said my mum.
We drove the rest of the way to my aunties house, it was about half and hour away. We got there finally i went to the back for some fresh air and there she was, she whispered in my ear “guess what”
“what” i said.
She knew I loved going to the Matakana and she said “It’s tomorrow “
“ what’s tomorrow?”
“you know the fair”
“Yay” i screamed louder and louder (with excitement) “Woohhoo”

As The day came I woke up early waiting for every one else to wake up . Every one was getting ready but me, my auntie says to me “watta eager beaver”
“hahahahahahaha” I laughed.
“I want this and I want that,” I said to my mum and my mum said “ OH TYLA YOU JUST WANT EVERY THING DON’T YOU” and I said “pretty much” (my mum laughed and so did I.)

On the way home from the Matakana Fair with the back of the car fulled with stuff we got from the fair my mum said “WOW it looks like we spent a lot of money” and i said
“but we didn't” my dad laughed and said” we only spent $50 dollars”
“that’s still quite alot” said my mum
“not really”
Not wanting to go home, I sat watching out the window as my auntie and her family slowly disappeared.
Screaming out loud i heard “BYE"

Being In Kapa Haka is really good, you get the opportunity to find out about Maori and you learn how to understand their language. Some people think that some Maori action are hard, but there really not here is a photo of us doing action at the Auckland Museum. It is really easy once you get to no the culture.

Aussie Rules!!!

(This is called the spectacular)
Hi today I will be talking to you about Aussie rules.
At Aussie rules you learn new skill in rugby. You learn skills called drop punt, hand pass, chest mark, and spectacular, and I am not sure about the rest, but just to let you know now they are not that hard. You play a game called Octopus, the rules are you have to get them out by doing a hand pass that is hard. One last thing, the instutor are a ladie and a man or sometimes it can be both ladies.

The story behind the USA flag !!!

There are fifty stars on the USA flag, each representing one of the 50 states. The 13 horizontal stripes which represent the thirteen colonies that fought against the British rule and became the first states in the Union.
There is one star for each state in the country.
The red stands for toughness and courage, and the blue stand for perseverance and purpose.
When you combined them together, you get the American Flag, and a symbol for likeness and freedom..... and the true meaning of being and American.

Movie Script on Tangled

This is a script about the movie Tangled, read along and see if you can find any spelling mistake have fun.

This is the story of how I died, don’t worry this is actually a very fun story, and the truth is it isn’t even mine. This is a story of a girl named Rapunzel, and it starts with the sun, now once upon a time a single drop of sunlight fell from the heavens and from that small drop of sun, grew a magic golden flower. It had the ability to heal the sick and injured, oh you see that old women over there, you might wanna remember her she’s kinda important. Well centuries past, and a hop skip and a boat ride away, there grew a kingdom. The kingdom was ruled by a beloved king and queen, and the queen well she was about to have a baby. And she got sick, really sick, she was running out of time, and that’s when people usually start to look for a miracle. Or in this case, a magic golden,flower.
Nah I told you she’d be Important, ya see instead of sharing the suns gift, this women, mother Gothile horded it’s healing power and used it to keep herself young for 100’s of years, and all she had to do is sing a “special song.” Flower gleam and glow, let your power shine make the clock reverse bring back what once was mine”.
Alright you get the gist she sings to it she gets young creepy, right?
“We found it”
The magic of the golden flower, healed the Queen. A healthy baby girl, A princess was born with beautiful golden hair. (baby happy sound) (happy proud adoring chuckle) I’ll give you a hint, that’s Rapunzel to celebrate her birth the King and Queen launched, flying lantern in to the sky.
and for that one moment everything was perfect......... and then that moment ended.
“Flower gleam and glow let your power shine make the clock re” the old lady gasps
(a crying baby) Gothile broke into the castle and stole the child and just like that GONE! The kingdom searched and searched but could not find the princess, for deep within the forest in a hidden tower Gothile raised the child as her own.
take what has been lost that once was mine gothile has found her magic flower.
But this time she was determent to keep it hidden “why can’t I go outside?”
The outside world is a dangerous place filled with horrible selfish people you must stay here where your safe do you understand flower.
“Yes mummy”
But the walls of that tower could not hide everything....... each year on her birthday, the King and Queen released thousand of lantern into the sky. In hope that one day their lost princess... would return..........

The story behind the Argentinian

If you are wondering and wondering trying to figure out what the story behind the Argentinian flag, today could be the day you find out. The flag of Argentina has three horizontal stripes of sky blue, white and sky blue. On the white stripe is a sun with 32 wavy and straight alternating rays. There are two different theories about the meaning of the colors and symbol of the flag. One says that the blue represents the Rio de la Plata (river of silver) which is the widest river in the world and the white represents the metal silver. The word Argentina comes from the Latin “argutum”, that means silver. The early conquerors and explorers believed the river banks hid deposits of silver, hence the name. The other theory is that the colors of the Argentine flag stand for the Bourbon Dynasty of Spain, since Spain colonized Argentina in 1516. It took 300 years for Argentina to gain independence which came in 1816. And now you know what the story behind the Argentinian flag.

Badminton, Badminton, Badminton!!!
How boring do you think it sounds, well I bet it sounds really boring.
Yeah well I bet once you give it a chance you will love it.
Before I started playing I thought it was going to be boring, but then like I said before I gave it a chance, and It was quite fun.
What are some things that I liked and disliked you might ask. Well thing that I didn't like is when you had to keep stopping to listen to the instructor and stop playing. One thing I did like was having the experience to learn some new skills. Oh and guess what it turns out that our instructor plays on T.V.
I mean WOW how cool is that.
OMG I did it, I actually did it. I was screaming in my head, then all of a sudden “BRRRRRRRRRRING” OH man I was thinking, not wanting to go I did a big sigh. OK so have you ever heard what some of the skills called, here are 3 of them
backhand, forehand, and a trick shots. The way she did it was amazing she did one where you chuck it up and hit it under your legs, and another one where she did a backside hit (well that’s what I call it anyways).
Oh no I heard some one say, out of no where I said Oh yesssss. Where playing our game now, O my head I would say oh “OK focus Tyla Focus You can do this” I only said it because I was a bit nervous, OK maybe a little bit more, Fine you got me I was a lot more nervous.
picking out demonstrators was our instructors one, two, three, and one more you.
She pointed at me “Haaa me na” come on she kept saying till I got up I sighed again.
I got to the court and a little tap is what I heard I turned and wallah I tried to hit it but I missed. I started laughing tap I heard it again I turned and moved it hit the ground. Now see if it hits the ground you are also out ok do you get the instruction now in reply we said”YES” alright off you go then” line by line person by person another and another.
By jolly there was alot of noise by alot I mean screaming and that stuff, It was so x3 noise. Wow what an experience that was and I really hope that we can do this again especially doing another sport. In the end I said to myself WATTA DAY and blew my head from sweat.

My Amazing Finish To The End

Well as some of you know in the past few days it didn’t go great for me, because I just went for the longest run, probably of my past years in school.

Stepping up to the start line, I felt butterflies in my stomach I heard a loud “BANG” I quickly ran, coming fourth. Then I HUFFED and PUFFED and slowed down to a stop, taking a huge breath and I started running again. I got to Mr J and saw Mr Harris, I ran till I got to him then stopped once more. walking then running then walking then running one after another is what I did.

As soon as I got back to the school grounds everyone was cheering saying go Tyla go, then they screamed out “LETS GO TAINUI” I ran to the end with a massive smile on my face. I felt so proud of my myself for running all that way just to get to the end.

My Goal Achievement

Have you ever wonder what it would feel like to achieve a goal!
well since last term I’ve been wondering what goal I am going to achieve, and I have chosen writing. Now that my goal is to improve my writing I need work on it.

How I’m going to improve my writing is to practise at home or in my own time. Like how people always say practise make perfect. I have to achieve my writing because I’m writing at a year 4&5 level “not what I’m expecting” I’m expecting to be at least at a year 6&7 standard. That’s how I’m going to improve.

This term I hope I can move up to the year I’m suppose to be at. I really really want to achieve my goal and I hope I do.

On one Sunny morning the Pt England Seniors went down the road to watch a Roadshow about Science, the enclosed cost was 7 dollars. At first I thought it was a Ripoff..... but then as we got down there and started learning about how science works in my head I would always say, “ wow it was really worth it just like everyone said”. Three of my favorite activity's were, ” The ref-election of the skeleton in the mirror” because it ref-elects off the mirror and on to the chair it makes it look a little bit like a granny in a rocking chair. My other one was the one where you had to rub your hands together very very hard until your hands got very hot then, put them under the bulb, and watch it rise to the top, it looked a bit like a weight. My last one was where you could sit on the chair and pull the chain to make yourself go up! One thing that amazed me at first was the zink that would melt so easily and would burn a hole right through it. Some of the thing’s that I didn’t really like at the roadshow is that the instructors talk way to long. One thing I did like was that you could try win yourself a prize by getting a card, it should tell you where you need to go to and try figure out how they work to get a hole punched in to your card. When they call you back you write your name and put it in a LUNCH BOX. The instructors will say OK we will call out a couple of names to win themselves a prize, it was a pair of 3D glasses and a 3D picture. The winners were Athena and Tia, at first when one of the instructors said Tia I thought it was me because he said is it Tya then he said or is it Tia and then everyone said Tia.
So the winner went up to get their prize, after a Restless day of walking there and back from the roadshow we got back to school and it was home time, as i got home I jumped in my bed and drifted quietly off to sleep.

My Scariest But Funny Nightmare

My Scariest But Funny Nightmare I had this Nightmare when I slept over at Selina’s house. I will tell you what It was about, me and Selina had just finished watching a scary movie, straight after the movie Selina said “I am so tired” in a reply “I said right back at ya” should we go to sleep” “yeah I think so”. As I drifted off to sleep I was suddenly dreaming about a wonderful thing then out of no where came a nightmare, I carried on sleeping to watch the rest.
It was about the man wearing black, along with his face painted black as well. The thing is while me and Selina were doing the dishes in my nightmare we saw a light flashing out on the window the brightest light shone right on our face’s.
we stared out side trying to see who it was, but we couldn't. So we stared around the house trying to think who was out there we found a torch and went out side as soon as we shone the light on him he ran into a pile of long grass and put a bogey board over his body to hide himself. But then..............
I pick up the bogey board knowing he was under there and I tried to whack him with it and told him to get lost. So he ran, and then me and Selina carried on doing the dishes! Soon after he came back. So we picked the torch up again ran out side and this time it was Selina who tried to hit him but he knew it was coming and he grabbed the bogey board and chucked it away. After he chucked the board away he said if you tell anyone I was here I will come back for you then we both screamed after a short amount of time, 7 seconds after Selina’s auntie came out and saw the man. She had seen him before in her child hood, she fainted and fell down the steps. Not long after Selina screamed out loud “MUM” Help us auntie died (she didn't really though Selina just thought she did)
Selina’s mum came out and said what. Selina said “look auntie’s dead” in a reply her mum said” No she’s not you dork” Selina said Oh so that’s she was still moving. I hoped you liked my story stay tuned to see more blog post of mine.

Wood Tech

Wondering what my new technology experience would be like, I was not only beginning a new tech class, but also a new term. My break was officially over, and I was into my first day back at school. My talented teacher for wood work is Mr Grundy. He can make so many cool things, such as trains, plane’s, trucks, and he can even make them for dolls. Mr Grundy gave us a folder to work in. We followed the dotted lines in the book, ending up with the same things but in a different way. Mr Grundy was showing us how to use a saw, I said," what is that black thing at the end?" He said, "It is a thing that stops it from chopping your toes off if your holding it the wrong way." “OH” After a while, Mr Grundy showed us his sledge hammer he made. It was pretty impressive! He also showed us a sharp thing called a chisel which is so sharp, that if you slide it across a piece of paper it can slice it in half, depending on which way you hold it. You hold the handle and bang it with your other hand. Hope you liked my writing, look out for some more new posts!

The one an only terrifying earthquake in Christchurch?

While I was screaming during the Earthquake suddenly thinking I’m going to die, I was seeing every single house in the district collapsing. I was so terrified that the building, was going to collapse. So I slid under a steel table waiting for it to happen. Suddenly I heard every thing is ok, as I came out from under the table “BANG” “BANG” “BANG”I screamed my lung out still waiting for it to stop, but unfortunately it did’nt until 1 minute and 25 seconds. I thought it was only me seeing dead people landing right in front of me,I started cry wondering about my family and all the people that were dead. I wished that this was not happening, just as I was climbing out, I was trying to help a man. He was stuck under a heavy piece of wood. It was the scariest thing that had ever happened to me, in my life and I hope it never happens again.

2011 Polyfest

This is the Tamaki College Kapa haka group. This photo was taken at the 2011 Polyfest. Their performance took it out, I know that because I was there and they came first in the whole thing. If you click on this link it will take you to the website and thats where I got this picture.
The last girl on the left is my cousin and she is also the Kaia of the group along with Lorenz.
As they started sing and doing the actions the crowed started cheering as the group got louder and louder the crowed could barley think, I know that because I was in the crowed. It was the best performance I had ever seen.
