A Hero Story

A Hero’s Story.

Setting-New York City
Hayden(The Uber Tide)Super-Strength - Hayden’s powers mean he’s now the strongest person alive, able to hurl cars at fleeing bad guys, knock over buildings with my bare hands, and accidentally wrench doors off their hinges at every opportunity.
Tevita(The Web Flamer)Spider-Powers - Tevita’s powers give’s him the advantages of a spider - wall-crawling, super-fast reaction times, amazing strength, and the ability to produce a white, sticky and not-metaphoric-in-the-slightest substance!

Story is a about 2 best friends who fight crime in New york city and then have a fallout about who does all the fighting and who saves the day all the time.Then one night they get a beep alert from Professor Einstein on a very important mission, the mayor has been kidnapped by the joker.Be in touch to see if Hayden and Tevita save the day or does the mayor get killed in the hands of the evil joker..........

Explanation about Jellyfish.

Jellyfish’s,stingy and dumb, are found in all oceans.90% live in freshwater.Jellyfish,colourful and large, are brightly coloured and can often be transparent or translucent.Some are very hard to see and are nearly invisible to the human eye.Some people think that jellyfish is a fish because of the word Jellyfish.

Me and Alex's Loom Band Status

Firstly, me and my friend Alex think that loom bands should be banned because they distract people’s learning, and it’s a distracting equipment. Since we have had loom bands in our school, people have been fighting, arguing and people have been stood down for not playing fair.If it isn’t banned, they should let the people who play fair, play with them and ban those who do not play fair.


Beginning of Holidays and nothing to do.Watching t.v and watching a programme called Diary of a wimpy kid.It is about a kid who starts middle school and is confident he's gonna be fine.Well this is it from my first blog of the holidays so stay safe and be careful around and near the roads and there will be plenty more blogs from me so see you later alligator.

48 because 3x15 is 45+3=48
Exercise 8 What to do
Use the strategy add a little/subtract a little to solve these problems.
Julie wanted to find 3 × 28.
She knows that 28 is near 30, so she used 3 × 30 = 90 and subtracted 3 × 2 = 6 to get the answer.
Julie recorded this in her maths book
3 × 28 = 90 – 6 = 84
Using Julie’s method find the answer to the following problems. Record your working like Julie did.
1) 5 × 19
100 – 5 = 95
(2) 6 × 41
240 + 6 = 246
(3) 3 × 59
180 – 3 = 177
4) 4 × 52
200 + 8 = 208
(5) 3 × 73
210 + 9 = 219
(6) 8 × 37
320 – 24 = 296
7) 3 × 102
300 + 6 = 306
(8) 6 × 301
(9) 8 × 598

Yesterday my mom and I woke up and got ready and waited for the taxi to take us to Starship Hospital to do my Chemotherapy.

When we arrived at Starship we went and did my blood test. It was very painful but I was use to it. Then we went to Level 7(Oncology Ward) to wait for the doctor to give us some numbing cream and a plaster.When I was waiting for the doctor to call us I was thinking about Room 10 and how much fun they were having exploring the Rocky shore and Rocky Pools then the doctor yelled out “Malulu we are ready to see you”.Then they told me I am nearly finished in a few more months.

When the doctor finished inserting my chemo into my port we rang the taxi and waited outside.I was very glad it was over because I wanted to go home and rest.

Yesterday Glenbrae School had their Inquiry Presentations.Room 10 and I went to each classroom and learnt something new.We learnt that the tallest tree is possibly 66.5 and is called the Kahikatea or the White Pine.We learnt that we need to know how to read maps and what you need to take with you.In our class we learnt that we need to tell someone where we are going at all times and where we are going.


Today Room 10 made loopy people.We learnt how to Measure body parts,Half the measurements and apply the half measurements.This picture shows a loopy version of me.The part I found hard was measuring my body then halving it but the bit I found easy was cutting and gluing it together.
