I am so glad there is a television in earth because if not wow there would be nothing else I would be doing during the holidays. My dog Tintin had been a naughty, nh because he had ate the hose into pieces. Watching the dog channel has been very interesting to watch because there's different looking dogs that there hairs are longer than there eyes. I won't be looking forward to the next holiday's for next term.

Yesterday Wednesday the year 7 and 8 walked sensibly to Tamaki College for P.E lessons.
I was very excited to play Gold Rush because I have never had heard of that game.
It was our second P.E lesson with the students from Tamaki College. When we got into the hall we started off with a warmup game called:Rats and Rabbits. Then we moved onto Gold Rush, it started off by 5 cones at each of the 2 sides. The students were split into 2 groups and had to find out a way to steal a cone from the other team. It was very challenging trying to get to the other side to get the cones. I felt really exhausted and hot.
Shocking a university student and his own brother were the cause of the big bombing in Boston, during a marathon. The question is why would they cause this massive explosion ? Helicopters were flying everywhere but not beyond 900 metres.Many people quickly evacuated from Boston after the explosion.The medical crew zoomed to a football field and were nursing the people in need. God Bless people in Boston.

We went to Motat to learn and explore Simple Mechanisms.
At MOTAT we first explored around the old vehicles.My favourite vehicle is a Morris Eight.The Morris Eight was the most sold out car in year 1930 in England. My group and I watched how a car engine worked in the olden days. While we were in the cars exhibition area we saw the huge black plane engine also.
Then we moved to the Victorian Village. While we were walking around the Victorian Village we walked into a classroom of the olden days. We also found a pencil sharpener, an abacus, a bell and a weird looking heater. Then we went to the Chapel of the Good Shepherd. We prayed inside the church and enjoyed the experience of the small church. The church was built in 1898 and transferred to MOTAT in 1974.
After that we went to the tram station. We nearly missed the tram as we were late. So we quickly went through the shop and onto the tram. The tram that we were riding on was built in 1944 in Melbourne.Our Tram driver was Paul O’ Ryan.
In class we learnt about simple mechanisms. A simple mechanism is a mechanism that makes our life easier by using a simple object. Such mechanisms are pulleys, wedges, levers, wheels and the axle. An Axel gives a point of rotation for a wheel. In the 10 last minutes we got to make a simple machine. My partner and I made a small vehicle.
There were new exhibits outside the car exhibition. It was an army collection of Armoured tanks and huge guns.The FV432 Armoured Personnel Carrier was used for the army and was built in 1964. Its speed was 52 km/h.
It was a cool experience to explore MOTAT learning about Simple Machines.I had an awesome time at MOTAT learning about things I never knew.
