Beautiful Blossoms Blooming

                                  Cherry Blossom Tree

How to make a gorgeous Cherry Blossom Tree
This Blossom tree is very easy to make. It’s super fun to create with a friend! So don’t forget to ask a friend to join you.

You will need:
  • A piece of A3 paper (White)
  • Black paint
  • Newspaper
  • Water
  • Water paint (Blue and Green)
  • Paint (Cherry red, dark pink, purple and white)
  • A4 paper ( White)

  • Paintbrush
  • Straws


  1. Cover your table or the place where you’re painting with newspaper.
  2. Fill a container with water.
  3. Grab your A3 paper and dip your paintbrush in the water.
  4. Lightly dip your paintbrush in the blue water paint.
  5. Light strokes up and down the page, don’t forget to leave space for the grass.
  6. Repeat step 5 with the green water and paint in the extra space. Let it dry.
  7. Grab your A4 paper and dip some black paint on your paper.
  8. Blow air through a straw, to make a tree shape with your paint.
  9. Repeat step 8 but on your background. Once you’re happy with your tree let it dry and you can move on.
  10. Mix some Dark pink and white to make pink.
  11. Lightly dip your finger tip in the White paint and dab some dots’ on the brunches. Make sure they’re not to close to each other.
  12. Repeat step 11 but with the other colours. Let it dry

Tip: Add some dot’s to the bottom of the tree, but not too many.

There you go you have a gorgeous Blossom Tree to show to your friends and family.

Did You Feel That?

Did you feel that?… The ground is shaking. It was 12:02am Monday morning and no-one was expecting the intense impact that the 7.5 magnitude earthquake would bring. The affected regions were North of Christchurch and Wellington but there were claims that shocks could be felt, right to the top of the North Island.

It made a 16km hole, deep in the ground followed by approximately  1,500 aftershocks. This number is still increasing. Two 6.2 magnitude quakes have been reported by Kaikoura. The ex-rugby captain Richie McCaw and commercial helicopter pilot has been flying rescue teams into the worst-affected areas after the 7.5 magnitude earthquake on Monday.

A tsunami warning has been issued to a number of areas around New Zealand. This includes all of the East Coast of New Zealand both in the North Island and the South. The tsunami has hit Kaikoura. Mass evacuations are taking place from a number of coastal settlements on the east coast of New Zealand. At this stage there are casualties, but the exact number is unknown, and numerous people have been injured.

If there was an earthquake where I’m staying I would:
  1. Warn who ever is around me
  2. Go under a table closest to me or if I'm outside I'll curl up like a turtle under a tree.
  3. Stay calm

If there was a tsunami I would:
  1. Warn who ever is around me
  2. Get to higher ground or land
  3. Don't panic

A New Adventure Awaits

This week my mum came into school to talk about me talking my Chromebook home! I was super-hyper. After my mum left I rushed to class to see if I was the first year 5 to be able to take my Chromebook home and… I was! It was a double win for me… Anyways my day was amazing it got even better when I got to take it home, to show my class blog, my blog and some of my work I’ve done so far!

Once I got home I told my mum about my Chromebook and she said ‘’You happy now’’ then I said ‘’I’m always happy!’’ We both laughed. I was so excited I want to be on my Chromebook for ages but I made sure I still had battery for the next day. I took a photo of me with my Chromebook very happily.
