Okay, Who Am I This Time?

Okay, Who Am I This Time?

For starters I am not a human... Yes I am a creature but not human kind.

I used to get bullied for being different. I got bullied for being special. For I have a very shiny nose, some may even say it glows. Until one foggy night, a kind, jolly man came up to me and said something that made me very happy. 

We worked side by side. I helped him direct his sleigh, throughout the night. With my nose so bright I was able to help him. He repaid me by providing me shelter and feeding me carrots.

I am now well-known around the world. People even made a song all about me. How lucky am I!

Who may I be?

Who Am I?

Who Am I?

I am jolly and cheerful. I visit the world once a year, checking to see who's naughty and nice. My little friends help me in my workshop. I have many pets. There is one special one whose nose glows.

I enjoy wearing the colour red, with a black belt. I have a pair of sharp black boots, with fur at the top. People say I smell like sweets, chocolate and candy some may even say I smell like flowers. My face is a bright rose pink. I have a white beard that covers almost half of my face. Even though I have a beard I still smile with glee and everybody sees.

When I come out to play I feel joyful. I love visiting all of the children around the world. Lucky enough, some kids leave cookies and milk out for me to eat. Sometimes a piece of cake and some carrots for my pets. I frolic around the world and make it home in time for supper. All of my little friends have a break.

For now we can rest.

I say farewell to all kids, for they'll see me next year... When I come out to play.

Who am I?

What Is It?

What Is It?

This object comes out once a year. 

It comes in many shape, sizes and colours. Some are real, some are fake... Some have lights, some are boring. This object is usually decorated with colours. Decorated with sparkling tassels and glittery orbs. It looks so beautiful completed with a star. If it's real, it smells like something from mother natures forest. If fake, it smells like plastic.

When you look at it, your face creates a grin. You feel so happy and excited. When touching it, you get tickled. Feeling it brushing against your skin makes you shiver. Some times, a group of people will gather around this object and start singing. Most of the time, your family will gather and laugh and cherish this object.

What is it?

Comment below what you think it is.

Blood Donors

Today, my reading group read an article called 'Blood In The Bank'. This took place at Penrose High School.

Heather Masson always wondered to herself whether some of her blood is about to be used to help save a life. She is a Blood Donor. Twice a year, the mobile blood-donor unit comes to Penrose High School, where she is a seventh former. Beds are set up in school assembly hall. Heather and the other students give a donation of blood for the blood bank.

That was a quick summery about what happened on the first page. I would write more but Blood In The Bank is such a LONG article.

Lights, Camera... ACTION!

On The Big Screen
Yesterday, Wednesday the 8th of November, marked the 10 year anniversary for the Manaiakalani Cluster of schools. 10 years of making films. Leanah, Meafou, Vaimoana and I left before everyone else to be at the theatre by 12 o'clock. Leanah and I were presenters from my class, Room 10. Meafou and Vaimoana were presenters from Room 12. We had three different sessions to be presenting our films so we were 

Before it was our time to present we were nervous. 
"Can you feel the love tonight"
I sang that with my head high and filled with pride. Here is what we said;
(Jessica/Me) "Can you feel the love tonight... Isn't love just, the best!"
(Leanah) "Well, besides all that lovey dubby stuff, what is the true meaning of love?"
(Jessica/Me) "When you think about it, love... It's everywhere!"
(Leanah) "Hm... I wonder what comes to mind when people think of love?"
(Jessica/Me) "I'm Jessica"
(Leanah) "And I'm Leanah!"
(Together) "And we are year 6 students from Ruapotaka School"
(Leanah) "Enjoy our film"

Our film was called 'All About Love'. 
As we walked of the stage my heart was beating with joy! We rushed over to the next session in cinema 2. In the second session, our school was apart of the crowd. We were able to watch a lot of the films because, our class film was last! Although this did put a lot of pressure on us, presenters. Luckily we did it easy as pie. As we rushed to the last session 1 AKA the lux cinema it... Was... PACKED! Once it was our turn again, to present I almost got stage fright! As I was singing on the stage some yelled out
"Go Jess!"
When that happened I freaked out.

As we walked off the stage I couldn't stop smiling! I was so happy! Leanah and I waited for Viamoana and Meafou to present then we left the cinema. We, Miss Misela, Mrs Golder, Viamoana, Meafou, Leanah and I were so happy and proud. 

Us, four presenters took a few photos in front of our display, representing my school, Ruapotaka. We then headed of to a saute of the Incredible Hulk. Miss Misela decided to take a picture of us posing in front of it. I kneeled down in front of Meafou, Viamoana and Leanah, flexing my muscles. Once that was done we rushed out side to the car park to meet our van driver 'Mrs Brough' and the van. We all hopped in and drove back the Ruapotaka. As we drove back we were talking about; our favouite films, how we felt and we played a bit of I dare you.
