Happy ANZAC Day!!

Happy Anzac Day everyone!

There's been a lot of ceremonies throughout the country. It's like me eating lots of ANZAC biscuits. The best highlight of the day was the ceremony in Wellington, and I watched the whole event from channel one. I was also reading articles online about ANZAC Day online. One of them about the Anzac award given to two people the other day. Australia was also having a ceremony as well. Let's honor our soldiers who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Marble Jar Activity - Milkshakes

On Friday, my class was in for a treat because of their outstanding behaviour, and because they have filled up their marble jar. Right after lunchtime (1:45), in class, our teacher's brother Uncle Asher and husband came in for a special activity, MILKSHAKES!!! It was a great surprise. Mrs Manuyag (our teacher) put all the ingredients on a white, small table.

The ingredients were fantastic - mini marshmallows, whipped cream, hundreds and thousands(shaped like dinosaurs!), sprinkles, food colouring, milk, and ice-cream.

The first milkshake, made by Mrs Manuyag, showed the ingredients and she talked us through the steps:

- First, put your ice-cream into your blender.

- Second, add milk.
- Third, add your chosen topping (caramel, strawberry or chocolate).
-  Finally, mix your ingredients in your blender (but make sure you put the lid on properly!)

After everyone got their milkshake, they went to Mrs Manuyag's husband, Carmilo. He was in charge of giving the whipped cream and the toppings on the milkshakes! Everyone was having fun, even in the photos, just like these! => =>

When I finished my first milkshake, it felt like I had had four, but then I had another one! My second one was twice as good as my first one, maybe because there was a mixture of chocolate and caramel toppings - yum!
<= Everyone got a photo of them and their milkshake, even the people who took their photos!

Right after we had the milkshakes, Uncle Asher was going to introduce to us his sword. It looked like a samurai sword. He told the story of how he got it in Japan. He was also talking about how he helped in the Japan Tsunami aftermath.

He had this one story about when he was practicing his sword moves with his sword, and when he was doing a move which I would call, Kirioshi (a move where you slice something straight downwards) then he sliced his light bulb, which shattered all around him. If only he had it on video!

At the end of the day, the class hugged, hive-fived, and handshaked Mrs Manuyag, Uncle Asher, and her husband, Carmilo.

It was the best day.

My Inspiring Person Poem.

Jeanne d'Arc - a poem by Willy

Justified from some people at first.
Everyone thought she was a witch.
A King (King Charles VII) ordered the execution of Jeanne d’Arc.
No one thought that she received signs from God.
Nowadays, she is a Saint and has statues around France.
Everything changed when Pope Callixtus III declared that Joan of Arc was innocent.

As declared innocent, Jeanne d’Arc was remembered by people in France.
Remembered as a person who joined and helped win a war.
Called nowadays, Saint Joan Of Arc, The Maid of Orleans, and Jeanne d’Arc.

Choice Two

Won the game! Yes! I have learnt my words, but I will still need to practice them, so next time I could just choose a few letters then say the word. Easy! I should search up that name, Saint Petersburg.

Choice One

Lost by choosing the wrong letter. He was so lucky. At least I know which words I should practice on...
