On a cloudy Friday morning the year 7's of point England school were excited as they were looking forward to a fun packed day we were off to Mirangi bay for surf lessons to stay safe in the surf.

Finally we arrived after a half n hour or so we finally got to strecth i raced to the front 'Everyone sit down' says Mrs Nua then Rosie one of the guards came over and we took our bags up into the surf club. it was a beautiful sight of Rangitoto but the waves were small not big like Piha.

The first thing we did was the rules of the sun and other activity's but the best was playing on the boggy boards on the waves the parents made a perimeter around us first the boys had the boggy boards first.

Man vs Wild.

Man vs Wild is a program about a man who teaches people how to survive in the wild It used to be on thursday nights on Prime but the season is finished. My favourite episodes are when he goes into forests and sets traps to keep himself safe from bears and other wild animals.

He eats all sorts of yuck stuff like zebra's ,dead pig's and snakes he even sometimes
make hunting weaons out of the things around him and hunts for food.

There are alot of stuff he can make from Rafts to beds to sleep on he always finds a safe place to
sleep and makes sure he away from deadly animals.

This program features Bear Grylls and all he has is one camera man and a crew .

Call of duty 4: Modern Warfare

Modern warfare can be played on X box 360 or PS3 . Every time I go to my Brothers house we play call of duty. Its an army game and most of the maps are in Iraq.

The game can have up to 4 players but me and my 2 brothers just play 3 player. Now there are allot of guns I pick machine guns and my brothers always choose the best gun on the game the sniper. If I get in the way of there aiming site I'm a dead man walking and press of one button I'm dead.

Immersion Assembly

Here at Point England school we have what is called an Immersion Assembly. An Immersion Assembly is at the start of each term. It is also to tell the school what our topic is.

My favourite Immersion Assembly was last terms one, ACTIVE EARTH. It was my favourite because we were leaning about the Auckland Volcanic field.

At Immersion Assembly's all the teachers dress up so that their costume their wearing relates to our topic for the term. Each team does an act for the school.

I like Immersion Assembly's because they are really fun and exciting.

In our 2 week holiday I went to see the movie BOY twice. I went with my Mum to Sky city cinemas on Queen's street. It was so funny that I was getting stitch's when he just said "so".
I left laughing. Then 2 days later my Nana rang to see if I wanted to go see BOY but she asked if I had seen it I said no I haven't so she said she will come get me at six. I was so excited a I danced around like a professional . So I love the funniest movie I've seen ever in my life

Black Hawk Down

Black Hawk Down is my favourite movie because it has allot of war. I like everything about war I have the Black Hawk Down DVD I have watched it heaps of times. But it is sad that is a real thing that happens and allot of people die in those country's that are war zones like in Afghanistan. This movie shows just what happens in war zones.


Jabbawockeez are an dance group in America and were in competition's like America's best dance crew and Pepsi smash and lots more. They wear masks because that's there type of dance suit.

I liked there performance at teen choice awards with there normal dance and song. They are really popular in America.

The Day The Music Died

Last Year The KING OF POP Michael Jackson died sending shock waves around the world.He was in the middle of a massive come back tour of a big 50 shows in London called This Is It .I brought his DVD the day it came out in stores.My favourite Michael Jackson song is They Don't Really Care About Us. Before Michael Jackson was king of pop he was in a group with his brothers called Jackson 5.My favourite move of his is the moonwalk. The music isn't really the same without Michael

Phineas and Ferb

Phineas and Ferb is my favourite cartoon I like Phineas the best because he always comes up with fantatic ideas.But the funny thing is there sister Candice always tries to get her two brothers into trouble when they invent something but she always fails because what they invented some how disapears and all there Mum says is "Hi Boys""Hi Mum".And thats the funny bit.I watch it every time it's on.
