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.

That's why wars are bad
