On the 13th of November I went to Australia for eight days. When I woke up I was soo excited but when I looked at the clock it was only 7:23 am, five more hours to wait I said.
When the hours went bye I heard the doorbell, it was my Grandma coming to drop us off at the napier airport. While we put the suitcases in her car I ran back inside and checked if I had everything. As I went inside my brother was their nailing nails on the window so that no one could rob our house, Come on I said and as I got into the car I was so excited that I could hardly breath.
Ten minutes had already flew past and we were already there. We got all our suitcases and had to put them in this machine thing. We had to sit for about half an hour waiting for the plane to Auckland. It was fun watching the other planes take off they were very fast.
Before you new it, it was our turn to get on the plane I was a bit excited because it was my first time on a plane. It was cool watching the clouds and the tiny houses, Theres the sky tower! says my dad. We must be close to the airport I said.
Since it took a while to get on the next plane we got Burger king for lunch. It was much more better getting in a bigger plane cause then you get more space. But I was sitting next to a random lady for three hours. I also think I might have fallen asleep but when they said it was okay to use your devices so I got mine and played on it.
Before you new it again we were already there, I was so excited to touch Australia!!!, As I got out it was steaming, we could not go home yet because we had to wait in this huge line to show the lady our passports.
After that we got our suitcases and took them with us the got our car that we rented and drove it to our holiday home. When we were driving for about half an hour at that point I wish I was in the pool at the holiday home.
Then we finally were their and our house was so cool there was a huge pool so I put my togs on and jumped in the pool. Their wasn't much to do in their but it was still fun, We were in their till it was pitch black so I had to go inside I watched tv for a little bit and then fell asleep. I woke up at one in the morning and wasn't tired at all so I went back into the pool and my dad and my brother jumped in to. But my sister and mum were still asleep so I had to be quiet. That day we went to a huge mall and brought stuff for the pool, we also got some pamphlets to see what theme parks there are to go to. What are we doing tomorrow? I said, we are going to seaworld my mum said. There was a huge thunder storm coming so we all had to go home. The next morning I got up early again but not as early as the first night.
The next morning we went to sea world as we walked in we saw spongebob's house and patricks and squidward's to we could not go on any of the roller coasters because they were not working but we went on the ski ride which felt like you were gonna fall out
after that it got dark so we had to leave because it was like five a clock and it was all shut down. We had a 2 hour drive around just to find woolworths bye then it was about 7 so we didn't end up going but it was a waste of time.
I was quite excited when we went home because I could not wait till Movie world because we were going there the next day. In the morning I jumped in the pool again and my dad said I had to get ready for movie world. It took quite a while to get their but suddenly I saw the movie world sign it said Hollywood on the gold coast.
The first thing I did was going on the superman ride I didn't really expect it to go really really fast but it still was fun. there is also a photo of me on it to I'm screaming and holding on to my mum's arm tight. after that we all wanted to go on a more calmer ride so we went on roadrunner it was also a roller coaster too.
after that we all wanted to watch the cars to daredevil tricks like going on the side and racing around and acting like they were on a movie. When we went out we saw bat man., people got photos taken with him to.
after that I went on the wild west ride it went down a big hill backwards really fast. My brother sister dad and mum were lining up to go on the green lantern ride but when we were just at the front of the line there was a huge hail storm coming so all the rides were closed so we just went on the justice league
after I went to buy the wonder women cape. after I bought it I was wondering why everyone was running into the shop I looked to see and their was a massive hail storm Oh No I yelled where's my family!!!!! I had no idea how it went from sunny to stormy.
After wondering around my dad was there to take me to where the rest of the family was. They were in this other shop but because it was hailing we were stuck underneath this umbrella outside we ran to the shop and waited for it to stop. It did not stop so we ran to the car and drove home I was freaking out because there was lightning to and it nearly hit our car.
The next morning we went to wet N wild. There was a huge line even though we went very early, The first thing we saw was these very claustrophobic slides that you had to lie down on I didn't go down those but my dad and brother did.
the first thing I went on was the tornado funnel thing it was blue and yellow and you go on a four and go down a slide I went down backwards , and you drop down on to a funnel thing and I scraped myself from doing that
The next thing was the black hole it looked so awesome and the line was huge but as soon as we got up there and when it was our turn we could not see anything because it was so dark and quick so we didn't go back on.

I predict that
Variables we must control:
Each bucket as it spins around in one direction
control legs as you spin in one spot
keep your arms out so you want spill it
you dont want to get wet so control the best objects that keeps you moving
Method:When I looked at the water it looked all wobbly and it got lighter when I went faster
Was your prediction correct? What happened and why?
the water will go on an angle so it won't fall out

Race a Speedboat
Can you make a paper boat race across the water just by gently touching the surface of the water?
Hypothesis (What I think will happen) I think it will go because the bubbles will push it
Coloured card, washing up liquid, pencil or sharpie, scissors, large container of water.
Method (What we did) we got dishwashing liquid and gently touched the water behind the boat
Observation (What happened)
the boat started to move
Conclusion (Why I think it happened) I think that the boat zoomed off was because the dishwashing liquid was forcing the boat to move.
Short Experiment to Follow Up
Make Metal Float
Gently place a paperclip on the water’s surface.
Hypothesis (What I think will happen) the boat will sink because the paperclip will push it down
Observation (What happened) the boat sank because of the paperclip pushing it down
Conclusion (Why I think it happened) I thought that it would happen because its giving the boat extra weight to hold and if the boat is not strong enough it will sink

Reflection for Optimist Yachting
Something I was pleased with was that I came 4th in the Kayaking race Because of Yesterday when I got the hang of it.
Something I found hard was trying to get back to shore in the yacht because I probably would have capsized if I didn't
Something that made me think was when I knew that the mainsheet controls the yacht to.
Something I want to get better at is not screaming when the boat dips
and please comment:)

Reflection for Optimist Yachting
Something I was pleased with was that we didn't capsize
because I would have fallen in the water.
I really enjoyed learning how to sail on the boat both ways because at first I was nervous but then when I got the hang of it it was fun.
Something I found hard was sailing when I had to duck down because of the boom that would swing back and hit you. Because I remember the sound from last year it made a loud banging noise.
Something that made me think was that when I got the hang of it because luckily I know now otherwise we would have capsized.
Something I want to get better at is focusing while bending down so the boom won't catch me.
Here is my Optimist Yachting Reflection I did on GoAnimate.

The Taj Mahal
Many years ago in India in a place called Agra lived Shah Jahan and his wife Mumtaz Mahal. They were the King and Queen of India. They were in love so they decided to have a baby. But when they had the baby Mumtaz the wife died by having birth to a baby boy. Many years after that the wife died but Shah Fahan was so upset that he built the Taj Mahal to prove his love. The Taj Mahal took 20,000 builders and it took 22 years to build. Everything at the Taj Mahal was symmetrical apart from where Shah Jahan and his wife lay in the center dead.
You can always go and see the Taj Mahal but you aren't allowed any perfumes or bright colors you're not allowedto drive any vehicles because they want the place to look nice and tidy.
This is a painting that Nikitah.j and I did of the Taj Mahal
