Crab hunting

Room 11 and I trotted to the beach. Finally we reached the beach, and kids started to search
under jagged rocks for crabs and fish.  They tracked down crabs and fish.  Some kids started to clinch onto the crabs and fish, determined to not let them go.

Next time I come to Wainui I will hold a crab, because I didn't hold one this time.  Maybe next time I might find a big crab.

Halswell Quarry

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.

Discovering my whakapapa

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.

One cold day I went outdoors and spotted a blue car floating in the sky.  Then I noticed a house in the air. One minute later I looked down at the ground and I realised something was holding me five metres into the air, please help me someone!

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.

Travis Wetland

First I wondered what it was and then I saw it was an eel.  I took this photo because I needed to take a picture of something at Travis Wetland so I took a picture of this because I like eels.

Riccarton bush

When I went to Riccarton Bush I saw these weird roots and I wondered how it formed like this and how it happened.  I took this picture because I really liked it and it really looked like noodles.  It also made me smile.
