Let’s Travel!

Standard

Hey everybody! This weeks task for the student blogging challenge is about travelling. Where will I go to travel when I graduate high school?

I’ve got a year to myself. What will I do? Obviously, this is my ideal holiday or vacation so this is what I would do if I had the money. (which I might or might not.)

So, I’ve graduated and once I’ve gotten used to the fact that I don’t have to go to high school anymore I’m going to go on a Vacation/Road Trip to America with a couple mates.

What will I pack?

I’ll pack two skateboards, clothes, a helmet, some books, camping equipment, passport, money, license/ ID and my wallet.

What will I do?

Here are the main events that I’ll probably do, in rough order – I’ll book in to The Cincinnati Museum Hotel, probably stay there for the rest of the day as the jet-lag wears off. We will then go skate at Ollies Skatepark as this is a park I have wanted to skate at for a long time and then maybe Clippard park Skatepark as I want to skate there as well. After a day of skating I think I would go to Coney Island for our third day of Cincinnati. I think our fourth day would be a day when we can just stay and relax in our hotel and have a quiet day. On our fifth day we would skate at some street spots throughout Cincinnati and have another day of skating. To top off the day we would go on the hunt for Andy Schrock, an awesome skater who owns a skateboard company called Revive. On our sixth day we would spend a day at the Kentucky Speedway and have a nice day out. And on our seventh and final day, we would spend at the Tri-County Golf Ranch.

After Cincinnati we would go to New York City because this is one of the most iconic places in America. We would stay in The Conrad New York hotel. The first place that I would visit would be either The Empire State Building or The Statue of Liberty. After lots of sightseeing we would go to Central Park as this, like everything else, is iconic. After our first day we would go watch a match at Yankee stadium hopefully, for our second day.Naturally for our third day we would go to Times Square, go for a run on the Brooklyn Bridge, go to the 9/11 memorial and probably go to Central Park again. For our fourth day we would skate at Tribeca Skatepark and then probably Canarsie Skatepark. On our fifth day we would have a nice relaxation day, maybe have a walk on the High Line. On our sixth day we would take a bit of a road trip to the Hamptons and got to the beach. We would spend the night at the Hilton Garden Inn Riverhead. On our  seventh day we would stay at the beach. On our eighth day we would stay at the Hamptons and skate around some street spots and just have a skate day. At the end of the day we would then head back to New York and hop on a plane to LA.

By the time we reached LA I think it would be pretty late at night so we would probably check in to SLS Hotel and I’m thinking that we would sleep. When we got up we would skate, skate, skate. I’ve heard that there are some awesome skate spots in LA and I would love to skate them. I would start by looking for Aaron Kyro’s famous skate spot and when we probably decide that we can’t find it we would probably look for the Pier Seven Manny Pad. Then we’ll head to the Wilshire Rails. We’d then probably hit the cinema for the night. On day two we would got to Universal Studios as I have always wanted to go there. On day three we would go to the Hollywood Walk of fame, then go check out the Hollywood sign. We would later have lunch by the Santa Monica Pier. On our fourth day day we would go to Dodger Stadium and watch a match. Afterwards, we would go to Arcadia Skatepark and then Boyle Heights Hollenbeck Skate Plaza. On our fifth day at LA we would hit the beach. We would then go to Venice Skate  park because this, in my opinion is the most iconic skate park in the world.

After my trip I’d come home. This trip would be awesome to go on and I wish I could do it. Hey, you never know?

 

Cows and Inference

Standard

Today my class had a lesson on inference and interpretations on text.  We used a website about moving cows from paddock to paddock but in order to do so we had to answer questions that required inference.

It was fun and a good way to learn about it. I enjoyed this task because it was something different.

Stay Tuned.

CandyLand

Standard

CandyLand is a simple board game designed for young children. I have never played it and I don’t think I wan’t to, but that’s just my opinion. It is an old game, dating back to 1949, when it was first designed by Eleanor Abbott.

Basically, the story line of the game is to save King Kandy, the lost king. It is a simple race to the end of the board. To move, there is a stack of colored cards. The color you pick up is the color of space that you move to. For example, if I picked up an orange card, I would move to the nearest orange tile.

It seems like a pretty boring game, but the display is actually very good for an old game.

So if you see it, pick it up and give it a go.

Stay Tuned.

 

Term 1

Standard

Hey everybody! Schools out for Term 1 and I am really excited! This Term has been great. We’ve had the Sports Night and and Inter-School Sports as well! Cross Country is coming up in Term 2 and I can’t wait for that.

Stay Tuned

 

 

Comments

Standard

So keep commenting and keep checking my blog.

100 Word Challenge – Evil Unicorns

Standard

I was traveling to Canada on a private jet. Why? I don’t know. I felt like going on a holiday. Canada probably wasn’t the best place for a holiday, but who cares? I was soaring over the snow capped mountains and then, when I looked out the plane window I saw them.

Hundreds upon thousands of unicorns. All of them were gliding gracefully through the air.

Wow. This opportunity was too good to miss. I jumped out the plane window.

I didn’t have a parachute so I hoped that the unicorns were nice enough to catch me. They didn’t.

SPLAT.

 

Doubling and Halving

Standard

Hey everyone, I’m at school at the moment  and we’ve just been revising our halving and doubling. We played a game, similar to celebrity heads but instead of celebrity names, we used numbers instead, and to guess them we could ask for the number, but doubled. So instead of getting the answer, 34 for example, we got 68 or 17.

It was great fun and it helped us to learn our doubles and halving. Some simple tricks we learnt were that when doubling, double the tens then the units like this: 46 40×2=80 6×2=12 80+12=92.

The same is for halving: 72 70 divided by 2=35 2 divided by 2=1 35+1=36.

I hope you learnt a bit, but I’ve got to get back to work, so stay tuned and keep checking.

Genius Hour

Standard

Hey guys, welcome back to my blog, I hope you like my new theme, today decided to post about my new Genius Hour, or Google Time.

Genius Hour is basically one hour a week to do a project on whatever you want. So what am I doing? I’m doing a project on my favorite skateboarder, Nyjah Huston. He was in the X games at age eleven!

He has won more prize money than any other skater in history and he’s only twenty. I think you can tell why he is my favorite skater now, I just wanted to post a little something and this is something that I really like so thanks for reading this and thanks for watching!

Our Project on Cyclones

Standard

Hey everybody, remember that post that I wrote about how I was going to do a project on Cyclones with Luke, well here it is.

The end cut out so we had to present the last bit while we were presenting. Basically, it said that knowledge about a cyclone can help you by knowing what to do and what not to do. Thanks for watching people, I hope you enjoyed it, keep watching and stay tuned.
