A few weeks ago I was keen to have a go at playing the piano. My piano teacher is Amanda. I have been doing piano for 7 weeks. And I have finished piano for the term. I am really sad that the piano is finished for the term. At my last session I made my own song to play to Amanda. I liked playing the piano and I like Amanda. My favourite song was Ode To Joy. Next term I will be way happier because I get to play the piano again.

Yesterday Dad and I were very excited because the Nitro Circus was on! When we went in there was a man who checked our tickets and we were good to go. On the first day it was raining and we sat down for a long time and then they said it was cancelled but on the next day it was sunny the whole time.
First the people on the motorbikes did tricks up a ramp. Next some BMX people did very crazy tricks on BMX bikes, scooters and roller skates. Some people tried to go down on some furniture. One person went down on a couch, caldron and a super market trolley.
When we were watching the Nitro Circuses tricks Dad and I watched the mistakes and people hurting themselves. Once a little girl went on a motorbike and braked her leg and she nearly fell 2.5m but lucky the other rider caught her.
Before the end of the Nitro Circus, the doughnut lady came down our entrance and Dad got ten doughnuts and Dad had five and I had five. Before the right food store was closed we got a hot dog and Dad got chicken tenders and chips and then the Nitro Circus ended.
On the 17 of January 2017 I went to the Huka Prawn Park. Dad, Mum, Daniel and I went fishing for prawns. Dad caught one prawn and I caught one prawn. Dad caught a small prawn and I caught a very huge prawn. When I caught the the prawn it was nearly going to pinch me with it’s long blue pincers. Before we caught the prawn I saw a sign with the biggest prawn caught. It had a person called Jackson C, from Wellington, who had caught a 35 centimetre prawn. But I caught a whopper 37 centimetre prawn. On the 18th of January I got a special treat. I got to go to the prawn park to get a photo with my name on the board. I have caught the biggest prawn this summer!
At school with Mrs Bennett I made my own Koru design. I made it from cardboard and cut Koru shapes out and stuck them on with PVA Glue and pushed it down hard. When it was dry you get a roller and roll any colour paint you want and roll it on your cardboard. When it is fully painted get the same sized paper as the cardboard and make sure it has got no gaps around the outside of the paper and press it down hard for a few minutes then take the cardboard off of the paper then it is finished.
