The book Elephant In The Garden is one of the best war books I have ever read. Its book about this family that has a Dad that goes away to fight in the Ruissian war. There home town gets bombed so they have to move away to there Anuty and Uncles place but they don’t know what there is when they will arrive.
I like this book very much and I recomend you should read it. My favourite character was Karli the main character brother. Karli is a entertaining, funny person and is always keeping his mum on her toes.
I think people that like adventurus books would like it.
This week we went to the blacksmiths and we had the choice to make a garden stake like I did or make a hook to put something. We made these things out of metal we would heat the metal with the forge and when it was red hot we bring it out of the fire and hit it with the hammer into the shape that we want it to be.
I was on the heavy lookout for any passing ships that were on the Sea Pups path. When we find these scallywags we will ram sack them and then we will take their boat to our own island somewhere far away from the Dog Sharks. Finally, at the break of dawn, I made out the shape of a passing boat. I did the secret call to the boys “kcaw kcaw” they all hopped in the waka and chased them until Tim hopped on the ship and threw all the people that were on the boat overboard. To be continued.
The novel Shouty Kid was a really interesting book. It was a book about a kid who loves to play video games but in the school holidays, his parents want him to go to a summer camp and when he gets there his bully Ed Bigstock is there.
I think that you should read this book because it is really funny.

This term has been enjoyable because I have moved from a towards 3 to a towards 4 in writing and a towards 4 is where I should be writing.

One of the school trips that we did this term was to go and visit the lake Benmore dam. Meridian energy took us for a tour around the dam and they even took us to see the huge generators that power 200,000 houses around the Waitaki district.
The other day on the first of April Duntroon school went to visit the Benmore dam. Meridian energy took us for a tour around the the dam letting us look inside the dam and see the turbines in action. The reason that we went up to the dam was because last year our topic was sustainable energy and dams are one of the ways to make energy. One very interesting thing that I learnt up there was that it used to be one big river. My favourite part of the day was lunch because it was yummy
