He was in a forest fighting Super V bear and nearly loss then the little bear(Not actually) woke Jack up. Then Jack woke up. Then Jack said "thanks for saving me you little bear." but when he faced backwards it was his rival Super V bear with his big gigantic body sticking out. Then they started fighting, they were strangling, punching and kicking each other. After all that fighting, they were both tired out! They rested for an hour then they started fighting again. They were still fighting until Jack got punched. His birthmark opened and then it allowed him to use his mystical powers so he used quicksand waterfall with burning flames together then Super V bear shouted "I surrender!"

Sally And The Blood-Sucking Witch

One day, one lovely day on mars, Sally the alien was out for a walk. She was walking until she came to the pet store. You see, Sally always wanted a pet, but she never had one or had known how fun it was to have one. But she went in anyway. All that was in the pet store was a moon rock, a red one. It did nothing for a while. Sally got bored and when she was just going to leave, she heard a noise. She turned back. The moon rock was bouncing. Up and down up and down. Sally really wanted to buy it. She reached into her pocket and grabbed three dollars. Moon rocks didn't cost that much money on mars. So once Sally payed she went home to go tell her parents.'' NO! You didn't even ask us. It's a big responsibility.'' Growled her dad. '' Anyone can look after a rock.'' Sally stomped to her room. She took the moon rock with her. When she slammed the door and locked it, the moon rock started to bounce again. Then it disappeared in a puff of smoke. '' So much for a pet.'' said Sally. Just then, a witch was standing right in front of her.'' HE! HE! HE! Your mine now!'' Screeched the witch. '' Your that m-m-moon r-rock-k.'' Sally said scared. '' Yup I can do some pretty good magic. Now come with me!'' '' Ahhhhhhhhhh!!! Mum mum! Dad dad!'' screamed Sally. Her parents went to see what was wrong but it was to late. The little alien was in a sack hanging off the edge of the witch's broom stick. ''Go away!'' Said Sally's Dad. '' I'll go away, with this ugly alien.'' The witch opened the window and flew out, Sally was going to planet earth. It was so cold up in the sky. It was so cold, that Sally turned BLUE. Finally they were in the witch's castle. The witch opened the sack and threw it on the ground.'' Consider yourself a little rude,'' Said Sally. '' and anyway what do you want from me.'' Sally said bravely. '' I want a SLAVE.'' Said the witch. '' By the way my name is Olka. Olka Big-teeth'' '' Who is your slave I don't see a slave.'' Sally asked. '' I'm laughing right a her. Ha.'' Olka said, annoyed. She opened her mouth. Sally saw big teeth hang down. She now knew why Olka sir-name was big teeth.'' Y-y-your a vamp-p-pire.'' '' Yup.'' said Olka '' I'll be your slave,'' said Sally quikly. '' just don't hurt me or, go back to Mars and hurt my parents.'' '' Ok ,here is list of things I need you to do.'' Olka was holding a huge long list, a MEGER long list. Sally began to say: '' How am I soposed to do all of...'' '' Shhhhh! You still want your live, than do it ALL!!!'' scremed Olka '' Okay.'''said Sally. So Sally did her work like scrubbing and brushing and cleaning Olka's room, she also made friends with the birds and one morning, the birds had a plan, a plan to get Sally out of the castle. The birds told Sally that they could fly out the window and go around the other side of the castle, through the window that had a room with the key in it, and come back and give the key to Sally. '' Brilliant!!! Now I can go and see my Mum & Dad again. But I will miss you guys, you are my best friends.'' Sally said sadly. '' Don't worry. We will come and visit.'' '' Okay then, lets get on with the plan.'' Said Sally. So the birds flew out and did what they said they would do. About ten seconds latter she heard a scream, a scream from a witch. But then she noticed that it was only the t.v. The All Blacks lost their game. Then she heard a jingle noise, a jingle noise of a key. '' THE BIRDS!!! '' Screamed Sally.
Fantail came swooping down with the keys and the birds. '' Thank you so much.'' Said Sally as she hugged Fantail. '' We also got the broom stick too. Your going to need it.'' Then Sally was on her way.

The Forest of Fantasy

Once upon a time, on a cloud far far away, stood a misty blue castle surrounded by a huge ring of dust and a forest. Inside lived a Wise Old Wizard, who liked to vanish instead of walking. The Wise Old Wizard wears a robe the color of the night sky. On his robe he has 35 stars. He also has a matching pointy hat that also has stars but only 17. He has a beard that is 100 cm long, and is as white as a new Mac Computer. The Wise Old Wizard is very short, only 110 cm. He has a walking stick and a wand. His walking stick is also his emergency wand. He has a old creaky voice that he doesn't use very much, and he hasn't had a bath since he was 16 years old. This is a fact that made a lot of people faint; He...is...120...years...old...! He is so powerful that he can make the earth a different shape. With his wand, he created a calm and tame pet goblin named Bubble. He only created the goblin because he was lonely, since he had absolutely no family. The Wise Old Wizard was really wrinkly and smells like frogs. he is one of those wizard who hardly ever smiles, and is a good wizard, not one of those mean, cruel, and nasty wizard. As for his mansion, it is HUGE. From the outside it looks like a normal 2 story house, but from the inside it is as big as 1 quarter of the Tasmanian sea. He is very rich, and usually very, very LAZY. Once on a cold and stormy night, the Wise Old Wizard came out of his mansion, went under the ring of dust, and sat down on his bench. He was feeling very board and lonely. So he slowly walked toward the forest and heard a faint growling sound... He swore he saw tiny people flying on a swans back. He scanned through his mind and remembered that those things were called Pinhead.He still wasn't sure what and where the growling sound was coming from. Since the wizard was a very curious person, he walked on further. After about 15 minutes of walking , the wizard was faced by a huge dragon like creature that had scales, a rooster like head and lion shaped paws. For the wizard it was a very peculiar site....very peculiar. He scanned his mind seventeen times finally on the eighteenth time he remembered what the creature was. It was a griffin. It has been said that they are very dangerous, and the wizard was sure that the fact in the book was true because the griffin ate his wand as well as his emergency wand. Soon it was dusk , the sky was getting dark and the air was getting cold and the wizard lost his way. The owls were hooting and screeching in the cold misty night. The wizard kept walking and very soon came across a very short person. He introduced himself as the "Dwarf king". He told the wizard that he could have one wish only if he could find the medal of wonder. The wizard did not know where the medal of wonder was so he got stressed. He wanted to wish for him to go home. Two minutes later the dwarf king vanished leaving a note on the ground.The note said " Follow the path in this map, you will face dangers in your track, so be careful where you step and you will find the medal of wonder".... The wizard followed the trail and ended up exactly where he was before; with the griffin.He looked everywhere around the place and found nothing. Then he stroke the griffin wondering how his pet goblin might be feeling; Smack!! the map fell to the ground and as the wizard picked it up, he looked at it upside down. Looking it that way he figured out exactly where to go!!! He was almost there ; where the medal of wonder was but he had to go to the middle of the haunted cave. The wizard was as scared as a mouse before a hungry fat cat.He ran and while running he wished that he had his wand so that he could go home. Suddenly....Crash!! The wizard had bumped into a huge rock and that's where he found the medal of wonder. As soon as he grabbed it the dwarf king appeared. He thanked the wizard and granted him his wish. That's what helped the wizard to go home and live happily ever after.

Queen Victoria's Crown By Megan

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh" screamed the two twins. Once they had explained their dream to their to their two brothers, Joseph who was three and David who was fifteen and both fiddlers they noticed it was true because when the went into their parents room they weren't there! One of the children even fainted it became a real problem because After Dylan had fainted their was a long two year struggle to get through with out Dylan. In two years time the second "Ahhhhhhhhhhhh" (But in a deep voice) in this story it was coming from Dylan. The kids ran out from the kitchen and greeted Dylan in the most cheerful scream. "I haven't seen you since, since well I can't remember actually". "Ohhhhhhhh thank goodness your here" said Dylan "ah duh" said Alice and Alia. "We have been here two years with you stinking up the house". "Didan Didan bath bath" said Joseph running out with his nappy full. "Yeah Joseph is right we may need to get you a bath the flies have been around you for months" said Alice and Alia. "Up you hop." Wait!" I had the strangest dream and you were all in it". "I know who has our parents, evil Queen Victoria." By the time Dylan had explained his whole dream the girl devised a plan. Alice and Alia were twelve by now and were old enough to get their licence to fight evil Queen Victoria. The twins who had identical clothes looks personalities and powers went to the police department with their brothers in the smokey fire death cell. Cough cough. I think this place needs some air freshener we better go the supermarket and get air wick eye motion. Said Dylan. "Hello can I help you" said the register attender in a extremely croaking voice. "Um yes for a start you can turn off the fake atmosphere Queen Victoria's guards aren't coming." "Yet." added Joseph still with a full nappy. "Sorry" said Megan the runner of the armor store. As soon as the fake atmosphere was turn of by a yellow switch of the counter the whole room filled with butterflies, rainbows and a whole bunch of funny shaped clouds. "We are going to fight the evil Queen we need armor and our parent red and blue power necklaces, our plan is to be her guards well her crown polishers actually". Said Alice and Alia fiddling with their purple sneaker t-shirts and heir denim skirts and pink tights. How many people need two armor said Joseph holding up his fingers with the number three on it. "O.K "laughed Megan.' That will be ten dollars". "Um we didn't have any money since our parents died." Said Dylan with tears rolling out his eyes. "OH I am sorry said Megan". "No charge it's on the house" "Thanks" "no thank you.O.K" "now that that's done we go to step two" Said Alia the first time without her sister.Boys remember to grab the fake crown. When you get in the dungeon tell everybody in their what we are doing and try and unlock the secret window under the spider web of death. If you do unlock it some help us but feed Mum and Dad first. "Lets do it" they all shouted. The twins announced that they would go first and say the were the crown polishers. Yep replied Dylan with his brown combed hair and his fancy black and white tux to make a great impression to their parents. Meanwhile the Alice and Alia were already down the haunted hall of misery the appeared out of the smokey fire and were looking straight at evil Queen Victoria's door. It was black and it had spider webs all over it with tarantulas venomous spiders and mosquitoes. "Ow" screeched Alia as she got bitten by one of the venomous spiders. Instantly they started swelling up like Augustus off charlie and the chocolate factory. Hide your fat under your armor the reply Alice got was a big................. but you could see Alia was going to kill her when she stopped swelling up by the frown on her face.Alice open the door slowly let Alia waddle in first. She could at least have one nice the happen to her in this story right? "What are you doing" shouted the queen in a 60's motherly voice. "W-w-we are the n-n-n-n-n." well spit it out. "new crown polishers" squeaked Alice. "Here take it I need it back in an hour with a cup of coffee from McDonald's and don't be late or it's the dungeon for both of you." said the queen in her red and black venomous blood dress. Slam. the kids were already out the door and were half way down the hall and were ready to slap the boys hand just like we do in class relays. Once the had slapped their hands the boys were off and the girls kept running far far away even out of rainbow world and in to the armor store then through the short cut door and were then in the smokey fire forest haunted with fire breathing dragons and even the smallest spark could kill you.The were running away because the Queen can't live without her crown for more than an hour and Dylan saw this in his dream. Back at the hall of misery the boys had just walked into the Queens castle and the Queen switched her security camera to the door camera and saw the two boys walking in "IMPOSTER'S" she cried. Dylan gripped onto Joseph and jumped over the Queens royal bed and started opening her draws to find her trap crown after them guards as soon as the kids grabbed the crown the queen said "wait" just when the guards were going to stab the kids with the spears. Suddenly the kids disappeared and fell right into the dungeon onto their parents Mum Dad they had just explained what had happened to their parents while the time was ticking away with the Queen 5 minutes left the girls still in the forest had just noticed their was someone following their tracks the dragon was right behind them "aaaaaahhhhhhh" they screamed and ran right up a tree by this time five minutes was over for the queen and everybody in their family knew it was almost time for their three year dreams to come true three two one they all counted and then poof the dungeon door opened and the dragon went away and all the things the queen took began on the good people side and as for the and turned the Queens crown into gold for al the good people in the world until someone else slipped into the leftover Queens dress to be continued.........

The Monster

Once, there was a kid called Mike and he did the opposite what his mother said. "Mike! clean the dishes!" "O.K mother" and he dirtied more dishes. When they was eating dinner, his dad said,"theres a new forest 50 yards away but its really dangerous because theres ...a... MONSTER!" And Mike heard him. The next day, he asked his sleepy mother about can he go to the forest today evening but his mum said "no" of corse, but Mike didn't listen. When his mother went to sleep, he went to the forest, it was far then he thought before.(Because he didn't know what 50 yards means) and finally he came to the forest. His head was full of questions about the forest but too bad that the forest can't talk. So he quietly tip toed inside the mysterious forest, it was quiet inside. Mike was sleepy because he woke up at 5am. he lied down on the soft forest ground and he looked up. he saw trees, but not just trees,he saw COLOURFUL TREES! He went up and looked above but it seemed to be a dream. Mike stood up and walked to the center of the forest, thinking what might be there. Mike was happy at first but he was slowly getting scarier. "there might be a ghost! I should'v not get here its scary!" he was so loud that all the birds in the forest flew away screeching. He was just about to run but benefits went in his head. " There might be trillions of treasures!" So he started to go again. But as he got closer to the center, it got hotter. Mike thought there might be the sun close to him. He was so exited that he ran fast. then he bumped on something spiky, hard and brittle. It was the monster that dad was talking about! Mike cried so hard that his tears went down the monsters leg.(plant) "It serves you right little kid, HA HA HA HA!" said the monster, sort of looked like a killer plant that had razor sharp teeth. " Thats why you don't be naughty!" said the monster. Mike screamed. he woke up, it was a dream. from that day on Mike was kind.

Hi my name is Joseph and I really want to know what do make-up artist do?make-up artist put make-up on the actors all actors have to wear make-up make-up helps them look like the actors that they  play. A make-up artist changes the way an actor looks. They can use make-up to make an actor old or young or like they have been cut or burned. This means that I have to use fake hair,fake scars and fake blood, or the parts made to fit an actors face or body.I also need special brushes,glue and sponges. Where  do they work? they work in a bus and in the bus they have basins, mirrors and dryers. They have what they need. They have a fridge and cupboards for putting it in. They use a bus so that they can be close to the film set. Sometimes they have to work on a set where they can't take the bus. when this happens, they have to make what they can. They have worked on the back of  the bus , on top of a snowy mountain and even in the water  in a wet suit. How do you know what kind of make-up to use? First they read the script and think about the character. They meet  the actors.

Why did they invent hot-air balloon?

How far do they travel?

How do they paint hot air balloons?

How large r the hot-air balloons?




That to come down u to let the hot-air balloon cool down

Hot air balloons

Hot air Balloons have a Pilot and the Pilot can control the Hot air Balloon. The Balloonists do not fly at night. The people that are on the ground they follow the Hot air Balloon. Many are used for sight-seeing and the fun of flying. Before the Hot air Balloon flies they put hot air inside. The first flight was in 1783 in france. There are hot air inside so the Hot air Balloon can fly. It is 70 kilograms and it is 154 pounds. The balloon is called a envelope. The rope is called cables. Hot  air  Balloons  are  large  flying  machines  that  lift  people  off  the  ground. People  have  been  flying  in  Hot  air  Balloon  for  more  then  two  hundred  years. To  keep  flying  in  the  air  in  the  envelope  must  stay  hot. The  burner  heats  the  air. The  envelope  and  the  basket  are  driven  in  a  truck  to  take-off  field. A  team  of  people  unload  the  balloon  and  get  it  ready  to  fly. People  hold  the  bottom  of  the  envelope  for  it  to  stay  open. Hot  air  Balloons  go  where  the  wind  pushes  them. Pilots  try  to  take  the  balloon  to  a  hight  where  they  can  find  a  wind  that  takes  them  where  they  want  to  go. Balloons  might  get  caught  up  in  power  lines. It  is  difficult  to  find   a  place  to  land. As  hot  air  escapes  through  the   vent  cool  air  is  sucked  in  through  the  bottom  of  the  envelope. The  cool  air  makes  the  balloon  heavier  and  it  starts  to  lose  height.

Hi my name is levi and i have been leaning about special effects. there are lots of movies that use special effects. you can see special effects on television too. many people work together to make special effects it takes a lot of planing. the special effects team might have to make a flood or fires, accidents and explosions. All these are some special effects. all special effects have to be made safe but they still have to look real. If a stunt was going into a fire you would have to wear a fire proof mask glove suit hood. If the stunt team has to make a car roll over then the car has to have a strong roll cage. The special Effects team and the stunt team work together to make stunts look real. stunt people are people who stand in for actors when a dangerous stunt can be blowing up or a car driving into the water. all stunts have to be very carefully worked out. The teams make sure that all of the stunts are safe.

undersea gardens

I learnt that farmers use seaweed to feed their animals and I learnt that seaweeds can grow up to 70m. high and the longest seaweed can grow faster then any plant green seaweeds. green seaweed often grows near fresh water you may find them. growing where streams flow into the sea crabs hide from their, predators inside seaweeds and some seaweeds can mack fish blend in to hide from their predators.seaweeds come in all shapes and sizes they can also look like grass some seaweeds. Feel slimy and their slime protects their blade from getting damaged by the waves.
Sea-horses wrap their tails around seaweeds so they don't get swept into deep seas    

Undersea Gardens

We have been learning about Undersea Gardens I wanted to find out if fish hide in the coral. fish do hide in the coral from there predator. some fish can blend in with coral. sea weed is put in ice cream /sushi/paint and medicine. some sea creatures look like coral but instead some coral sometimes. on fish shows sting rays hide in the sand so if you go diving. remember to watch out for sting rays If you can't swim don't go diving sea weed can grow up to 70 meters! It can be different colours red/brown/pink/green and purple they can come in different shapes and sizes seaweed sometimes floats onto the sand.

I learnt that there is a pilot and the people down on the ground can follow the balloon and that hot air balloons don't fly at night to bring the hot air balloon down on the ground the envelop needs to cool.some are used to collect scientific  information and their is many different  tips of balloons. Balloons have heaps of different pictures too. The burner helps the  balloon fly. it can weigh more than 70 kilograms.

Undersea Gardens

Seaweed can grow up to 70 meters and also they can grow they can grow faster then any kind of plant in the whole world.I didn't know that seaweed can grow in many different colours for  example,brown,red or dark red,pink,purple and green. Did you know that the seaweed can look like all sorts of shapes and sizes, for example seaweed can look like lettuce,grass,spaghetti,flat sheet,tubes,neck lace or row of beads.''Well did you know what name is for seaweed?''Well the Rimu tree is a maori name seaweed. Seaweed is a very young plant rimu trees just like seaweed.   

Hot air balloons.

There are little cables at the side of the hot air balloons to make it still, there is bucket for the passengers. We think the hot air balloons need hot air to float up in the air. There are usually different pictures in the envelope. You need to stand still so the bucket won't wiggle from side to side. The people on the ground are called chase crew and they talk to the pilot on two different ways radio. The hot air balloons don't usually fly at night because they might get caught in a power line. After the hot air balloon is filled with hot air the hot air balloon needs to be tied to the ground to stop it floating away. Hot air balloon are a larger flyer machines. The first hot air balloon flyer is in France 1783.

Learning about Adverbs

Today Mrs Pram taught us about adverbs. We can use an adverb to change a verb, adjective or another adverb and it gives us more information about the way something is done or happens.

This was a yummy lesson because we all got given donuts to eat! First we had to tell Mrs Pram some different things we could do with the donuts like nibble, eat, chomp etc. Then we had to tell some adverbs that would explain the way we did these things like nibble politely or chomp loudly.


Check out some of the adverbs we use in this video:

A female duck came to visit Travis house!!!

Travis had a surprise visit last night from a female who walked into the house. She inspected the kitchen/dining room and ate some of the cat meat that our cat did not finish. Then it gave my Mum a heck of a fright when it came flying out from behind the kitchen curtain. Mum had to chase it around the kitchen and dining room before catching the duck in a corner of the lounge. Travis was most amused at the highlight of our week.

Cassidy's Drama Show!

Every Tuesday I go to Corbans art center for drama lessons. We do stuff like acting, miming and stuff like but one day, my teachers Hannah and Wendy, had some very good news.'' On Sunday we are having the first rehearsal for the show in October.''
All of my friends were so excited about the show! We have all been waiting for a really long time.'' Where is the first rehearsal?''
I said. '' Block-House Bay. Does every one know that is?'' Asked Hannah. We all shook our heads. '' Well maybe your parents will know.'' So me and my mum went down to Block-House Bay. We spent a long time on the opening song. We came back every Sunday. We did some dress-rehearsals and some normal ones. The worst thing was that we had to do the show with bigger kids.
On Saturday, we had our first show. We were all excited. Finally the show started. It was so cool, but then we got bored when we were waiting in the green room. I'd tell you how all of it went but it would take to long. All the shows where FANTASTIC. Then we had the after party.
That was the best part. All of my family were so proud!!!

My Special Netball Day By Megan

In a very exciting weekend I went the first netball game of the season. It was the morning of the netball game which I had forgot with my pea sized brain. My brother came into my room and kept whispering Megan Megan Megan until I woke up. I decided to sleep in, I don't know why because I would usually get up and turn the T.V on, but I still just stayed in bed. about three minutes later Mum came in and said in a hurry ''you need to get ready for netball.'' and I said ''O.K'' I walked quickly to the hall through the lounge and then in to have breakfast. For breakfast as usual I had weet-bix with brown sugar. I thought that this time they tasted a it bit yuck. After that I had a shower and put on my new netball uniform. I think it was quite fancy, it looked liked it could be used for a netball team called posh. Then I got told that I had to get my bag together and put all my stuff in it and I was player of the day so of course I had to bring the lollies. I did this all as quick as I could because I thought I would be late for the netball game but in fact I had to wait for all my other team mates to get to the netball courts. I sat on the computer playing some confusing and animated games on the computer and a little while later I announced it was time to go. Once we had got to the te pai courts I had to wait for a couple of my team mates. We did some laps around the courts and then the two minutes warning came on the speaker for our game to start. We walked to the court we were playing on, got into our places the whistle blew and we were off. we got the ball manage to get it pass WK got it into our goal and then got a goal we had a tough GD and a very good GK we were so excited after the goal we ran back into our places and then the whistle blew again the other team threw the ball it went off side summerland ball yes I screamed in my head I threw it to our WA then she threw it to GD on our team and then oh no her defender was to fantastically good that we just couldn't get it in the end they got a goal it seemed like a very long time between the whistle and the goal. I was correct it was because just after the half time bell rung it had already been half and hour since we started! This time we had the ball the lucky ball the ball was going so quickly from each team mate to the other and before we knew we got a goal "yes" I said in my head yet another time the first netball game and the best! I was their ball they had it down to their GA and then down to their GS and then the had a goal before you could even have your GD put their arms up we had a slow goal this time we passed it to WA and then she fell over and when your on the ground you can't throw the ball and if you don't throw the ball you will have given the ball to the other team because you hold it for more than three seconds. So the other team go the ball but got confused on who their team mates were so they threw to the wrong person and we got a goal! Just after the bell rung and we had won it we had won it all!
We were all so happy and after we got a crunchie bar each because we won!
The end the sweet crunchie bar end

MasterChef New Zealand re-invention By Megan

"Alright" said our master chef Miss Signal to get the attention of the most brilliant chefs in New Zealand. "This may be the hardest competition you have ever been in, but I know you will all do terribly well". After Miss Signal or should I say head chef had explain the rules we were off! Our Big challenge was to complete a kiwi design of a pavlova.

Zanobia was doing a wonderful job with her strawberry, kiwifruit and hokey pokey ice cream topping. Levi was doing a tremendous job with his goody goody gumdrops inside and for his WOW middle he had jaffas and whipped cream! Cassidy was also rocing it out with her crunchie bars on the outside of the middle. Lucky last is Riahie with his complementary L&P drink. 

Hokey Pokey was the favourite topping in the pavlovas and finally our products were complete. After we had to choose our best competitive people and they would be our team in each team. Each team had to choose who's pavlova looked best and then vote to make their choice. There were four people and they all had their own creation but only one from each team will still be going on in the hope of becoming the new master chef

When we had all chosen our top pavlova we sent that person over to stand in the top spots. 

Head chef Miss Signal then said "Congratulations you people have earned this spot but or the rest of you TRY HARDER! "Pack your bags and leave, we do not want to see anymore of you in this kitchen ever ever ever again". Unfortunately there was a lot of tears and emotional moments that made the audiences eyes water

Tune in for the next Master Chef New Zealand episode where we will announce the winner.   

Christchurch Quake Map

Last week we had the chance to talk to Mrs Stewart from Christchurch all about the earthquake and her experiences. It was a great opportunity for the students to get to talk to someone who was living through all the things we have been hearing on the news. Before we talked to her through Skype we checked out the Christchurch Quake Map. It's a great visual tool that meant we could get an idea of how many earthquakes Christchurch was having, how big and frequent they were too. Click on the image to head to the map.




Here's another clever tool that is a timeline of the earthquakes - drag the grey bar across to see when they happened and more - Christchurch Quake Timeline.

All About Megan

Character discription of Megan

Megan has Hazel green eyes with golden spikes around her pupil.She has blond hair as soft as cotton. She has pale skin, and chubby fingers and cheeks.She has really long lashes that stick out majorly. She smiles with her eyes closed which looks like she had a nightmare. She is tall and holds her head while she thinks, and soon enough her head is tilted 75 degrees to the left.
She puts her elbow on the top left corner of her book which looks odd... Her cheeks are almost always red and the hair beside her ear is extremely soft, as soft as a white puffy cloud. She never does up her top button and her hair flicks over her face. her top lip is smaller than her bottom lip and she usually wears no ear-rings. She is almost always wearing her sneakers.

She makes a new weird sound everyday. At first it was kind'a cool but now it is mega annoying, it is the most annoying sound you would want to hear on a Monday morning!! She likes insulting people, ( in a good way ) and by people I mean me!! She makes similes like: As close as a chicken is to her eggs, and looks like wool after a cat has played with it. She is a person that is always concentrated i her work, like right now, at 12:25:42 pm on Thursday the 12/08/2010 she is writing like mad. She wants to be a writer when she grows up. Either a story writer or a song writer. She is a person that you can trust, a person that can keep secrets ( she feels the same about me ). Sometimes she says the wrong word and then says opsy really cutely, and sometimes goes Arrrrrrrrgggggghhhh!!! She is crazy. As crazy as a leprecaun that just got a piece of chocolate. For example... Her drama is a comedy show, ad she makes really weird face expressions. She is really helpful and loves that about herself. Once she was fighting with Isabella if she is going to help Tatiana or Isabella is going to help Tatiana.She does joke around about people, but doesn't hurt any-ones feelings, if she does then she doesn't forgive herself. She loves to type, like when she gets the address of a website wrong , she types it all over again. Megan is practically a clown. A clown that is famous for it's humor all around the world. She always has really good questions about things that sometimes even Miss S. doesn't know the answer to it. She is very intelligent. As wise as an owl.She is really interested in art and is always concentrating while the teacher is giving instructions, sometimes she starts talking... But still on the top of her list is writing. She is really proud of herself because of the fact that her math and reading levels are really good. Megan is a really nice friend to have; especially
when it is your first year in a new school!!

All About Zanobia By Megan

"Hahaha" says Zanobia as she laughs at one of my driest jokes in the world and you guested it she is a very funny person. She loves listening to jokes even the worst in the world. Zanobia is a very wacky weird and wonderful young woman. Zanobia is extremely smart and notices every little detail about every little person. For example right now she is sitting next to me writing about me and she notices that I tip my head on a 75 degree angle when I am writing. Zen is very energetic and runs around with me all the time no matter what I am doing. She loves to play with her friend Angle. Zanobia will give you any thing you want if you ask for it and she can make it happen. Zanobia really likes playing netball and it is her favorite sport.

Zanobia's hair feels like wool after a cats played with it but it looks like brand new black silk. Only a little bit of her hair actually does feel like cotton and smooth silk. She has straight black hair and one time wanted to see what it was like to have long hair so she bought some fake hair for the $2 shop. Her top lip is wrinkly when it dries up. Her top lip is tinny and her bottom lip is a medium size. Her top lip is as small as a pin. Her nose is a extremely weird shape. She loves to paint her nails bright colours that blend. Almost all the time you see her with her nails painted. When you see her without her nails painted it is as rare as seeing a person trying to cut metal with scissors. Zanobia has dark skin skin like the wood on a tree. Zanobia has orange shaded ears that look extremely funny! Zanobia always wears headbands because her fringe is growing to long and has to wait for a hair cut. Zanobia always laughs at my dry jokes and when she does that she gets big creases around her mouth. For example one time I told her that I like her as a friend and then she laughed hard out (I was thinking I might change my mind!) and she had the biggest creases around her mouth. Zanobia has teeth that are as white as new printed paper when the sun is shining on it. She has extremely dark eyes, as dark as the night. They are nearly black but are still brown. Zanobia has lots of different earrings and she changes her earrings every week to match her outfit! She has a whole bunch of pouches with pouches with earrings flooding out of them. Zanobia is as close to her earrings as a chicken to it's eggs.

Zanobia is on her desk reading her favorite book, diary of a wimpy kid. (I guess she wants to be close to her own kind!) I am probably going to have to say sorry to Zanobia for saying the previous sentence but I get sorrys from her all the time for doing nothing! For example she says a sentence and I would usually say hoha!? So she says sorry it was meant to be like this... bla bla bla. Zanobia is nice and always swaps gross food for yummy food after school like one time she swapped a mandorin for a tim tam! Zanonia gets $5 a week for pocket money but has to jobs to get them! That's amazing I only get a big fat $0.00 and I still do jobs! Zanobia is following her dream to be a marine biologist but when she was dreaming I don't think she was floating on a cloud I think she was floating on water. Zanobia laughs at everything I say, I think her laughter box needs mending! She tells me everything she thinks about me she keeps nothing a secret. I can always rely on her to tell the truth but even if it isn't the positive truth she will make it sound like the positive one. That makes her sound even more kind and here is something that will do the same thing. Zanobia doesn't care what anybody else says about unless it is positive or it is giving her some great feed back she didn't even care about the last insult I gave her!
Those are all the reasons why everybody should want to be her friend-and they do.
