On March the 16th I went to Halswell Quarry. I learned how Banks Peninsula was formed by two big volcanos. We got to play around in the area. This is what I saw and it looks really cool because of the different colours.

My full name is Jordan Patrick Doonerwind. Jordan was my mum's maiden name before she married dad. I was born in Christchurch on 18th of April 2007.
My dad was born in Christchurch. My mum moved from Invercargill to Christchurch when she was 12. My gran and nana live in Christchurch as do my four uncles. My mum's dad used to call me ‘The Little Jordan’ and said he was ‘The Biggest Jordan.’
Grampsie’s dad (my great grandad) used to send morse code messages in the war. My Nana’s dad lived next door to Richard Pearce in Waitohi and saw his first flight and his home- made plane in 1902. My Gran's great, great grandfather stowed away on a German ship. He was a boy and left Greece and landed in New Zealand. The important thing my parents have learned in life is love.

Octoman is an octopus and he's got eight arms and he is as tall as a two story house. He also has a very, very smooth nose like a plank of wood and a bright red afro like cotton candy.
He really loves slouching in a pool like a big lazy slob. He really likes to flap his arms like a tornado. He doesn't like people only other octopus because he is an octopus. He loves to throw his houseboat on creatures homes. He is as fast like as car moving at top speed. He doesn't have any manners and he loves to eat like a pig.
He does not like to talk to people because he sounds like a baby and he whinges about lots of stuff, like when people talk to him. He's happy when nobody is around him. Octoman loves to speak with a British and NZ accent.
Octoman loves to hangout with fish because they like to swim to his boat in the water. Fish like to call him Wiggles because he likes to wiggle his tentacles.

The activity I enjoyed the most during discovery was the husky racing. The challenges I encountered while husky riding was keeping on the big scooter. I overcame this challenge by not looking at my feet. I learnt to not take my hands off the handle bars.
I've been challenged by planning ahead. I overcame the challenge by thinking hard. When Oliver, Brayden and I did the egg challenge we were fighting over which eggs to use. We worked stuff out by talking to each other.
Overall I feel good about what I discovered because it will be useful when I am older. I am looking forward to baking in term 4.
