A Star is Born

An interview with our star...

Where did get your trumpet from and how much did it cost?
I bought my trumpet from my music teacher and it cost more than $500.00.

What is your favourite song to play on the trumpet? My favourite song is Southen Folk Rapsody

Why did you decide to learn to play the trumpet when there are so many other cool instruments that you could play?

I thought the trumpet would be fun because I had seen some people playing it on tv.

Do you want to be famous for playing the trumpet?

Yes because I would like to win some trophies.

Do you like playing your trumpet in concerts?

Yes I really like playing the trumpet in concerts because lots of people come to watch us and we can get some money when we put out a bucket.

Terry the Tiger - Term 4 Week 7

In the weekend I stayed with GB. We went to the Gala and we won a Snapper Hand made of slime, I found it a bit gross but GB didn't mind.

When we got home we had Sushi, GB and her mum made my favourite kind which is called Salmon and avocado. After dinner I went to bed after a very busy day while GB stayed up to watch TV.

Bye for now,

Edge is the one on the left CM punk was on the right. We ate ice cream and I said "Cookies 'n' Cream is my favourite" "Well you're in luck Terry"and we ate in joy.

It's Diabetes Week and I'm The Man

Hi, I am the man you want to speak to and that's because I have got Type 1 Diabetes. I was only 4 years old and I used to keep drinking lots of water until my Mum took me to the doctor and they did a blood test and I was 24.6 and I should have only been 7.0, so off I went to hospital for a week and then it all started and here I am ....

I think it is really cool to have a Diabetes week because it makes us feel special when we have had a hard year with our diabetes. Last Saturday my family and I went to Auckland Zoo with lots of other kids that have diabetes, it was really mean cause I gots lots off free stuff.

I hope you like the Diabetes Rap song I found on youtube it tells you lots about Diabetes.


It's Our Gala Countdown....

5 more sleeps to go until our School Gala Day on Sunday 22nd November. This week room 11 are busy making yummy sweets to sell at our sweet stall. We have been busy bringing in lots of different items to help support our school. We thought of making chocolate fudge, toffee, coconut ice, can you think of any other sweets we could make?

Ares 1-X Rocket

This is a video of the Ares 1-X Rocket finally being launched on Thursday 29th October 2009. NASA is trying to return astronauts to the moon instead of the space shuttle programme. The test launch did not have astronauts inside it this time but eventually it will. During the past 3 years it has cost $620 million and it was all over in 2 minutes. Do you think sending astronauts to the moon is a good idea?

Terry The Tiger - Week 5 Term 3

Hi People! It's me again, Terry!!! This week I went home with K.D.

On Friday, K.D. and I were on the computers, and K.D. was playing on Poptropica. On Saturday, it was really special because there was a soccer game between K.D.'s Team which is City and another team which I don't know. But all I know was that I was sitting on the Gear Bag and I was looking at K.D.'s Team chatting about how we're going to win!!! At the end of the Game, it was the most horrible time ever!! Because the score was 0 and about like 6 mill :( -_-"!!!

Soon, we went to a special place, it was K.D's grandmother's house!!! But before that we went to McDonald's!! K.D. had an Ice Age 3 combo and I just ordered patties!! And now we went to K.D.'s grandmother's house! I saw K.D's cousin which is B.Z.

On Sunday we went to a walkway, it took half an hour/30 minutes to get from the beginning to the finish!!! After, we went to Titirangi Beach!! There was a laminated swing (stuck together), a motorbike, a swing and a side car, but of course... THE SEASIDE VIEW!!!!!!!! But wait, we also went to Olympic park and K.D. got an apple juice!! And there was this big as red spider-web looking like thing that was about the same height as a Brachiosaurus :O!!

Sighs happily, "It was the best time yet that I've gone home with a student!" :D (K.D. also gave me a badge on my fishing coat! :)

As part of our "Now and Then" inquiry unit, we read the book Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge by Mem Fox. We discussed what memories mean to us and then brainstormed these. Do you have a special memory that you would like to share?

Terry The Tiger - Term 3 Week 2

Hi it's Terry here. I had lots of fun with R.L.

We went to the Zoo and saw another kind of me!

We had hot chips and all the birds wanted them so we gave them some of the chips.We went to see lots of fuzzy bunnies and some of them were very big and fat.Two of the sealions had a fight while the other one was swimming in circles! After we saw all the animals we went to a shop and R.L brought a toy Yorkie. Do you know what breed a Yorkie is? When we left I thought we were going back to R's house but instead we went to pick up R.L's brother from work.

Well thats all. Bye for now Terry!!!

Terry the Tiger-Week 9 Term 2

Hi, it's Terry again! I went to ZF's house. We got some movies to watch, one of them was The Flight of the Navigator and Nancy Drew. First, we watched Nancy Drew and then The Flight of the Navigator, The Flight of the Navigator was creepy, it had aliens and the ship was alive and it was really dumb! After that, we went to bed but ZF kept on reading books. The next day, I ate some cookies secretly but ZF and his mum caught me eating them! Then we watched the rest of the movies. After that we went to bed AGAIN! ZF kept on reading AGAIN!!!!! Well folks, bye for now see you again soon. You should look at the rest of the photos!

Terry the Tiger - Week 1 Term 3

Hi Guys,

I had a fantastic weekend with RB. Can you guess what we did? We watched Star Wars Attack of the Clones. I really enjoyed the movie and I tied myself to the top of the tv and hung down and watched the movie.

RB has a really cool friend called Dog and he let me play with him all weekend. I had a really comfortable bed at RB's ... it was a book, an animated book on Transformers, I had a little peek at the title.

I had a marvellous time with RB at his house!

Hi it's me Terry. For the Holidays I went to JH's house and we watched Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. On Tuesday we went to Whitianga and had a cool time. We bought some toys, a magnetic game and an aircraft carrier. Just before JH went back to school he gave me some super soft slippers and a fishing jacket (in case I got too cold).

At JH's house it rocked!!!! because he has loads of toys, in fact his house is full of them, he has more than any other kid would have.

See ya

TH's Magnetic Travel Toy

This is another slideshow about our magnetic travel toys we made in term 2. I liked my magnetic travel toy because you can travel with it in a plane/train or car and any transport and it's safe,sturdy and strong. I would change my magnets because they were too weak so I needed to get stronger magnets.

TH Room 11

Magnetic Travel Toy Slideshow

This slideshow is about our magnetic travel toys that we made in term two. We created this slideshow using the site called You can do this at home with your own photos when you get your own picture trail account. I liked my magnetic travel toy because the track folds up to make the box but I think that next time I would use stronger magnets.

Hi there!

I had the best time with GB because I went to the museum and had fun in the volcano house. At the museum GB and I learnt that Sir Edmund Hillary conquered Mt Everest on the 29th May 1953. After that we had dinner, G's nice mum served some yummy fish & chips. We cleared the table and G made a nice cosey curtain bed for me. On Sunday G and I went to a pool party, but I didn't swim because I didn't want to get my paws wet. For dinner to finish of the weekend we had a feast of sushi.
