The Royal Melbourne Show

On Thursday the 27th of September my mum, gran, papa, brother and I went to the Royal Melbourne Show! The Melbourne Show is held at the Melbourne Show Grounds. Here is a link to find out a bit more about The Royal Melbourne Show: http://www.royalshow.com.au/

I was amazed by how many things there were to see, it was much bigger than the Geelong Show. Some of the rides I saw were so crazy. I only went on one crazy ride with my mum, brother and papa. It was a big roller-coaster that went slow and then fast when you went down. I couldn’t breathe when it was going fast. The ride was called the Taipan Roller Coaster.

Some of the things that you could do or see were:

-Go on rides

-Look at animals

-Get show bags

-Watch shows or performances in the Arena

-Get your face painted

-Buy toys

The rides that I went on were:

-The Bubble Ride, you go around in a bubble floating on water. It is really hard to get up once you fall down.

-The Bouncy Slide, it was like a jumping castle but it was just a big slide. I went down so fast that I burnt myself, not the fire burn.

-The Pirates Adventure, there were heaps of different obstacles inside. There were poles to swing around, a big bouncy slide to go down, a bridge that moved side to side and heaps of high ladders.

-The Taipan Roller Coaster, the  Taipan roller coaster was one of my favourite rides. It went so fast at some points. It went round and round in circles and then it slowed down and then it went fast again.

Here is a PhotoPeach:

My Ballet Exam

Today, the 11th of August, I did my ballet exam with the students in my ballet class. There are four of us. There were 26 dances we had to memorise and perform in front of our examiner and pianist.

When I arrived I had butterflies in my stomach but I knew I was going to do well even if I made a couple of mistakes. I was nervous and excited. I have done exams before so I knew what it felt like.

We had our hair done in a bun. It wasn’t just a bun, it was very special.

My Bun

In the exam we did the barre exercises first, then the centre exercises and last we did our dances and Reverance.  Our Reverance is where we do a dance/exercise where we thank the examiner and the pianist.

Me in one of my ballet positions

My favourite dance was the character dance because there were so many different steps in it. It was a good challenge. Press on the link to find the character dance on youtube: Character dance

My favourite exercise would probably be Battements Tendus because when you point your toe it has to be really sharp and fast if you want to be in time with the music. If you don’t know how to pronounce Battements Tendus you say it like this: bat-mon ton-due.

Me standing in one of my positions again

I think the hardest exercise would probably be Pas De Chat. You have to jump really high and make your legs and arms go in a certain position. You pronounce Pas De Chat like this: Pa-De-Sha.

I also thought Hop Steps were hard because when you try it out you think it’s a hop but you are not allowed to take the foot you are standing on off the ground.

Another Position

My best friend Millie was doing the exam with me. We have done ballet together for ages.

I have done heaps of fun things these holidays and I am looking forward to more exciting things. It has been pretty busy but I wouldn’t say it has been going fast.

I will tell you some of the things I have done on the holidays:

The Movies

On Tuesday my mum and dad had to go to work so my gran and papa looked after my brother and I. Gran and Papa asked us if we wanted to go to the movies to see Ice Age 4. We both said yes. We went to the Readings cinema. The movie turned out great and was absolutely hilarious. The characters were funny, especially the old granny and the little animal that adores acorns.

Charlotte’s Birthday Party

I got invited to Charlotte’s (a girl in my class) 10th birthday party. We all arrived near 5:00pm on Thursday and then had a short chat. We were going to Melbourne in a mini bus. It takes about one hour to get to Melbourne. We were going to Melbourne to ice skate. I had no idea how to ice skate. When we got to Melbourne we got our ice skates and helmet, after we got those things we had a lesson on how to ice skate. Once you got the hang of it, it was quite easy. If you fell over and your hands touched the ground your hands would get freezing cold. You skate on ice. I had a couple of falling over moments but just got back up.

Netball

I did netball on the first Friday of the school holidays. Last week Friday we didn’t have netball because it was the school holidays. This week we are though. Anyway, last week Friday I went to Skilled Stadium to play netball. I love netball. Our coach Fadge (we call her that because she told us to) broke her nose so we didn’t have a coach. When I got there Kamarah’s (a girl in our teams) mum said she was coaching. We got to play positions that we like. I was GD (Goal Defence), C (Centre), WD (Wing Defence) and on the last quarter I was GS (Goal Shooter). I almost got a goal but it went over the ring. We lost. 🙁

Ocean Grove Aquatic Centre

On Thursday my mum took my brother and I over to the Ocean Grove Aquatic Centre. It wasn’t really busy but I know why, because it’s winter in Australia. We jumped in the pool. At the Ocean Grove Aquatic Centre there is a water playground. On the water playground there is a medium waterslide, a bucket at the top of the playground (it falls when it fills up with water), a bubbly area where you sit down and it feels like bubbles are coming out, water you can swim in and heaps of water that you can do fun things with. We also swam in the pool and played fun games.

Sleepover

On Friday I went to Rhiannon’s house. We caught up there and then Rhiannon came over to my house for a sleepover and play. We watched a movie called ‘Bedtime Stories’. It was a great movie and was funny. We went to bed at 10:00. I was really tired and had no energy to stay up. The next morning we got up at 9:30 and had breakfast. We played a game called downball. I think we had a pyjama morning because at 12:00 we weren’t dressed. After we got dressed we went to the playground across the road from my house. We had heaps of fun their.

Some things I can’t wait for are:

  • Seeing Spiderman at the movies in 3D
  • Having Millie come over for a sleepover
  • Ballet

Tagxedo

At school, 4KJ (my class) has been making Tagxedos.  A tagxedo is basically just a word cloud. You can write anything in there and then decorate it. In the decoration part you get to choose the theme (colour), font and shape.

As you can see I chose my shape as Australia. I chose the colour pink of all shades because it really stands out. For my writing I did a clear font.

I did my Tagxedo about my life. I wrote my friends, what I like to eat, what I look like, the things I do at home, the people in my family, the things I like to do at school and what sports I like.

Here is my Tagxedo:

If you want to have a go here is the website: http://www.tagxedo.com/

I will tell you how to make one.

  • You go to load
  • Write the words you want in the box where it says ‘Enter Text’. You need to use commas after you write every word. Also, if you are doing a two words and you want it to go together you put this ~ in the middle. For example: brown~hair
  • When you are finished writing press submit
  • Choose your theme (colour)
  • Choose your font
  • Choose your shape
  • If you want to save the Tagxedo you press on save share print, advanced and then press the button that says (1) save tagxedo.jpg

What’s Your Favourite Thing to do on a Wet Day?

It’s Winter in Australia so it’s going to be cold and wet basically every day this season. I have a widget on my sidebar that shows you what the temperature is going to be. All you have to do is click on the arrow and click on a place and press go. It will then tell you the temperature. Here it is:

On wet days I like to watch TV or a movie and have a blanket on. I sometimes sit on our bean bag we have at our house. I have a pillow pet. It’s a pillow but you can make it into a pet. Mine is a butterfly and it is very soft. My favourite movies are Zathura, The Smurfs, Tangled and all the Harry Potter movies. My favourite TV shows are A.N.T. Farm (A.N.T. stands for Advance Natural Talent), The Voice, Masterchef, Victorious and Good Luck Charlie. I do have a lot!

In bed I love to listen to the rain while reading a book, playing my iPod or going to sleep. Rain is really nice to listen to when you are in bed. We have had lots of rain.

When I Was Little I….

Hi everyone! I am going to talk about ‘What I did when I was little.’

I have changed since I was little, everyone does.

I was cheeky when I was little as most children are. I absolutely loved pink but now I love many colours. I can’t choose a favourite. I liked ice-cream birthday cakes (I still do), it shows in the PhotoPeach you will see soon. I used to love shows like Dora, The Fairies, the Disney Princesses, Fifi and heaps more.

I also loved ‘My Little Pony’. I had heaps of ponies, pretend ones. I loved playing with them and pretending they could fly. 🙂 I wasn’t really into Bratz and Barbies and all of those things though. I still played around with them and dressed the dolls up.

I had a Disney Princess Kitchen and used to pretend to cook for someone. I remember making restaurants and going over to my mum and dad to ask them if they wanted anything to eat.

Now that I have told you a bit about what I did when I was little I am going to show you photos of it as well:
