The Disaster pizza

Walt:Write a story using interesting beginnings.

Mr Goodwin sat down to order his first Deep Dish Pizza. Only the chef had something different in mind
for Mr Goodwin’s pizza. Instead of the usual ingredients like cheese, tomato, and ham. The Chef instead
used most of the spiciest chilies. First was ghost peppers, next was jalapenos and lastly was Tabasco sauce.
Once the chef finished making Mr Goodwin's special pizza he went out of the kitchen and gave Mr
Goodwin his pizza.While handing his pizza the chef said “why don’t you have a try” Mr Goodwin’s face
turned bright red he felt like something went wrong but he didn’t want to be rude so he took his first bite
and his face turned dark red!!He panicked “I need water, I need water!”

As Mr Goodwin went on and on and on he finally stopped and said “What did you put in my pizza?” The
chef answers It was a surprise check the bottom of your pizza box. On the bottom of Mr Goodwin's pizza
box it said “I used ghost peppers, jalapenos and Tabasco sauce as you base” Mr Goodwin got mad and
said “I am never going to buy pizza from this store again I’m not even going to pay you but I am going to
take this pizza and prank some of my roommates” He said with a grin on his face “maybe Mr Jacobsen”
He didn’t want to prank Mr Burt because Mr Goodwin was scared that he would lose his job. Mr Goodwin
left dramatically without paying. He drove to his hotel and started to search for Mr Jacobsen. At last he
found Mr Jacobsen, but before Mr Goodwin told Mr Jacobsen take a bit he told Mr Burt about the prank,
Mr Burt was on board and wanted to prank Mr Jacobsen too.

They both went to Mr Jacobsen and talked for a bit, then Mr Jacobsen took his first bite. But he knew
something was coming so he tore off a piece really fast and he pretended that it wasn’t really spicy. Mr
Goodwin and Mr Burt were confused at first but then they said "let me see your pizza," then He gave his
pizza to Mr Goodwin, but Mr Burt and Mr Goodwin were even more confused. A while after Mr Goodwin
took another bite and his face turned dark red again. He screamed and then went to get milk, a while after
Mr Jacobsen laughed. Minutes later he got over himself and said “H...O….W is that not spicy. Mr Jacobsen laughed again and said “I didn’t even take a bite” as he went on and on. Finally Mr Goodwin learnt his lesson to never prank a teacher again. Although his mouth is still burning from all that spice.

Task Description:

In this piece of writing I have written a story about a Deep Dish Pizza. Room 7 had to use descriptive language and we also had to use interesting words. We had to write about Mr Goodwin in Chicago. Mr Goodwin gave us a beginning and room 7 got to chose a starter to start writing.

Is It to Big?

Walt: Find the perimeter of a sandwich

Task Description:
In this presentation room 7 had to find the perimeter of a sandwich. Room 7 also had to see if some of our teachers had to get a new sandwich bag to fit their sandwich in their bag. To do that we had to add up the perimeter of the sandwich.

Game Spab

Walt: Review A game and write a description.

The game Spab  is a game on Cool Math Game, to win you would have to think critically about your
strategy. There are letters from you keyboard involved to get up on to high places. Also the arrows from
your keyboard help you to move,  If you fall off the platform you have to restart the level. I liked that I had
to think carefully about each moved I made.

How I could improve on the game Spab is to look at the keys that I am using. Sometimes I fell off the
platform because I was pushing the wrong keys and so I had to restart the level.  

I would definitely recommend this game because it is loads of fun and it helps you to think really hard of
what moves you make. The one thing they should be able to improve on is to make sure each time you
carry on with Spab you carry on with the same level.

Task Description:

In this task we got to play a game that we have never played before. We could only use the games
on Cool math once we finished playing that game we had to review that game and said,
what you liked about that game, what they could improve on and why/why not you would recommend
that game.

Matariki Day Recount

Do you know what Matariki is? Well Matariki is a celebration of a Maori new years, Each year people set off firework to celebrate like always. This year Pt England school split up into different groups to celebrate Matariki.

A couple of days before we selected what group we wanted to be in. We had a lot of options, one of the options that I really wanted to be in was movie making. Somehow I didn’t  chose a group. On that Friday we did the normal thing and got sent off to our groups, because I didn’t choose a group I had to see Mr Somerville. I begged him to be in movie making with Mrs Langitupu and I got to be in that group.

Once I arrived at ICT witch was where we did movie making, Mrs Langitupu split all her students into groups for filming. I got split up into a group of 5 and we got to film all around the school and asked people what they did so far. First we went to MKR (My Kia Rules), we asked a bunch of questions to a couple of people. We went to most of the cooking groups first but then we decided to go to one of the sports group. We interviewed Mr Moran and He talked so much so we had to cut some of him out.

After filming we went to go have morning tea and there was a crazy people, after morning tea we went back to our groups. We did the same thing and went around the school, interviewing people. We asked the same simple questions and we got a lot of the same, silly, and crazy answers. The group that I really enjoyed interviewing was one of the arts and craft group. They were painting a background and you could have it any way you would like. Then they cut out some paper stars and decorated it with glitter, drawing and much more.

Overall I had a really fun day. I loved going around the school, interviewing people and filming. The best part was that I got to be in charge of the camera! Have you ever celebrated Matariki like this? If you have please leave a comment down below and share what you did!

Little red riding hood (with a twist)

Little sisters and halloween
Once in a land far far away there lived two girls and a mother. They don’t live to far away from their
granny but it was halloween. Their village was filled with scary decorations. Even though their forest was
filled with beautiful plants and  cute animals you never know what could happen.The 2 girls were sisters.
The first sister loved the color red, her name is Sophia, but the second sister love the color purple and he
name is Isabella. Their mum would call them little red riding hood and little purple riding hood. Each day
they would always wear a cape with there favorite color

One day it was halloween and their mother wanted to send them off with some food to their grandma’s
house. So she called their grandma and it went straight to voicemail. “Oh Well the mother said. I'm going
to have to do a voicemail” “Hi Granny the grand children will be coming over later today.” Little red riding
hood and little purple riding hood got dressed into their halloween costumes and set off to granny's house.
Before they both left their mum handed them a basket full of treats and said “don’t stop walking and never
talk to any strangers.” Little red riding hood and little purple riding hood started traveling to their granny’s

The Mystery
The forest was filled with lovely flowers and even cute animals. Some of grannies best friends are up to
something and no one knew what was happening. Granny’s friend the wood chopper distracted Sophia
and Isabella and said to them both “Look, Look at the lovely flowers why don’t you pick some flowers”
Little red riding hood replied “No sorry we don't have time, My mum said that we can’t talk to any strangers.
We need to get to our granny’s house.” The wood chopper panicked and no one knew why he said “I’m sure
your granny would love to have some beautiful flowers in her house” Sophia and Isabella both wondered
“Hmm Maybe she would” So for a few minutes they went picking for some flowers for their granny. While
picking flowers the wood chopper snuck out and ran off. Once Sophia and Isabella finished picking flowers
they bundled them up and walked once more.Finally Sophia and Isabella arrive at granny’s house. It was all
decorated for halloween. They both knocked on the door and said ”Granny we’ve come to deliver some food
for you”  “come in come in the door is open” Granny said

The arrival
Sophia opened the door and saw granny lying there in her bed. Covering her face with her blanket“Hi
Granny It’s nice to see you” Isabella said. Granny slowly uncovered her face and said ”it’s nice to see you
too” Sophia jumped and said “Granny, what big ears you have” Granny said “the better to hear you” slowly uncovering her face. Sophia said with a soft voice“But granny what big eyes you have” “The Better to see you with” granny said still uncovering her face. Sophia and Isabella frigtenly said” “but granny what big teeth you have” Granny replied “of course the better the eat you with” Sophia and Isabella screamed!! While granny laughed taking off a wolf mask saying “Happy halloween” all her friends jump out saying “happy halloween to Isabella and Sophia. They were both confused and quite frightened. Granny said “Once i got the voicemail from your mother I've been setting up a little halloween gift for you both. Like the wood chopper he distracted you while I was getting ready. My house was already decorated and all I had to do is put my mask on”

As they went on with their party they had a awful lot of fun and the best halloween. They all had something to eat and Sophia's favorite was granny lemon cake. Isabella's favorite was the mini mince and cheese pies. All granny's friends danced along with granny and as they dances  Sophia and Isabella started to walk back home. As they walked back home Sophia and Isabella talked. did you have fun?” Sophia said. Isabella replied “I had heaps of fun and it was probably the best halloween I’ve ever had” and they talked away they made it back home all safe and sound.

The End
