Beauty and The Beast

Once upon a time in a far-off country, a successful merchant lived in a lovely cottage in the forest with his two sons and two daughters.

Whenever one of his ships came into port, he would travel to town to sell the goods that they brought back. And every time, his children would ask him to bring things back for them.

Beauty and the Beast is a 1991 film about a young and beautiful French woman who falls in love with a hideous beast. Loosely based on the fairy tale of the same name, for example, Belle refused the invitation for dinner.

After that, the days took on a similar pattern. There were plenty of wonderful rooms and gardens in the palace to entertain her. But every evening after supper, the Beast came to see her, and always before saying goodnight, he asked in his terrible voice, "Beauty, do you love me?"

Beauty, thinking of the prince of her dreams, always answered politely, "No, Beast."

But the longer Beauty stayed at the castle, the less she was afraid of the Beast. She began to notice that he was actually very polite when he came to see her, and even seemed to be a little nervous. After a while, it occurred to Beauty that the Beast seemed more scared of her than she was of him.

As the ceremony started there were dashing and fiery flames just just sprinting up the air! My jaws dropped as it went up! I screamed with excitement! while jumping on the couch my favourite firework of the ceremony was the 5 interlocking Olympic rings! Who would've thought that i wouldn't jump on my couch saying “woho”.

The best part of the ceremony was when Mohammed Ali and his wife  was holding onto the 5 interlocking rings which was on the Olympic Flag. It was just a pleasure to see them together on that special day Tears came to my eyes as I saw them together.

Aladdin ...

In spite of his mother's tears and prayers, Aladdin did not mend his ways. One day, when Aladdin was searching the steers for a Job a man claiming to be his uncle stopped him.

He would not lie in bed for hours at a time, dreaming of having no homework, being as rich as the sultan, and marrying a beautiful princess. But in reality, none of these things came true. Aladdin lived with his mother in a house that was shattered and they barely had enough food to eat.  

Aladdin rebuilt his castle, but this time with his own two hands so nobody could ever take it away again. And they all lived happily ever after.

Olympic Information ....

The Olympic rings were first used by Baron Pierre de Coubertin in 1914. In the Olympic there were only 10 sports but now there is a big difference. And the difference is that there is more than 20 sports in the Olympics, wow!.

The olympic symbols represent the five continents which are Africa Asia, Europe , America, and Australia . The ring colors are blue, yellow, black, green, and red which represents each colour on the flags, like south africa is green, and Australia is blue ,Black is New Zealand, ANd red is Egypt. And last of all Yellow is Europe

because each flag of the countries that were part of the Olympic movement contain at least one of those colors.

The 5 rings interlock with each other to stay put.

Modern Pentathlon .

 This is a sport that Pt England dose not know about. Look through my slide's as I tell you about this new Sport.

2012 Olympic.

With the 2012 Olympics approaching we have been learning about Equestrian is usually called  horse riding. But in other ways you can also so say Equestrian .

It takes a great deal of talent, know-how and training to win in equestrian sporting events. In order for you to play this event you will need a horse some knee pads helmets and some protective gear.

In order for you to win  you have to practise and practise and if you practice 3 times a day that will make you perfect and a gold medal performance.

Show jumping is a exactly like equestrian. this came into force in England this started in the 18th century.   

The horse made its first appearance at the first Olympic Games in 680.
this Olympic game was  the most exciting and spectacular event ever.

The Equestrian forced into the olympics in the 1912. This was one of the most spectacular Olympics out of the the 18 centuries.

First of all you will need to protect yourself so here a some stuff that you need .helmet, boots for you, a saddle, a bridle, boots for the horse, and most importantly, A HORSE! FOr space you will athe need a track or an stiline.

For Horse riding you will need these thing to become successful  , kindness, being trustworthy, thoughtfulness and a desire to 'give' rather than to always 'get.' My goal is to always be truly kind and helpful in all interaction.

A horse has to be at least nine to be in the equestrian olympic event!
Equestrian is the only sport when men and women compete against each other.The cross-country course in Eventing is between 5,700 and 6,840m long.

Olympic Rings Mosaic

Mosaics can be images you create with small pieces of coloured cardboard, glitter, or other materials. Some Mosaics are usually made by small pieces of glass or coloured stone. Today in Room 17 we made a Mosaic out of Cardboard, glitter, materials and paper.

The image we had to do were The Olympic Rings. The reason why we did this was because our Inquiry is about The London Olympics 2012.

After all our pieces were finished and we put it together and it became the Five Rings of the Olympic Games. There was one piece missing and that was part of the green as you can see.

Overall, I had a great time creating our mosaic! Doesn't it look fantastic?

Immersion Assembly .

Every term our whole school will have a topic to study and find facts  about. At the beginning of each term, our school runs an Immersion Assembly.

It was great a start to the term. As we entered the hall for our Immersion Assembly we noticed that the teachers were dressed up in costumes. There were runners securities and a Princess. Do you know what our Inquiry is ok you guest. It was the London 2012 Olympics.

One of my favourite topic was BIGGER better FASTER stronger. The reason why this is because this topic was the most fun topic I ever had. But this term the London Olympic has came in first.

When a Familt member leaves ....

Some people come into our life and quickly go away. Some stay for a while and leave footprints on our harts. But saying Good-bye is't the hard part the hard part is when the memories just don't erase them self.

Today was the sad d's day of my life. Today my cousin that was like a sister to me left New Zealand to go to Australia. I cried and cried as I saw them walk out the door. Hugging and Hugging. I told her that she will always be in my hart and the kids as well. I cried as I walked out the door of the Airport........
