Jiwon's Horrifying Haircut!

Sent from my Samsung Galaxy smartphone.
In the holidays I had a horrifying haircut at Tiffany's Hair Salon.
First I sat on the special chair and she took out the scissors. Snip, snip, snip.
She kept on cutting my hair. I think she wanted to keep on cutting and cutting.
Then she used the clippers. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Last of all she dried my hair and I went home. When I got home I looked in the mirror. I looked disgusting!

Jidam's Holiday

Sent from my Samsung Galaxy smartphone.
In the holidays, me, my brother, and Jay and Jay's dad played soccer at Memorial Park.
First we did a warm up. We ran to the lamp and came back. My brother was trying to trip me over,but I didn't.I was still scared though.Next we did passing. If we missed we had to go and get the ball. Next we played the game. It was three against one. Our team scored four goals at the start of the game. Next when Jay's dad was coming towards the goal my brother kicked him really hard! After he kicked him we all laughed.

When I go back to Korea i'll have to practise. By Jiwon


Today I went to school and I went to ESOL. I dressed up in my Korean clothes and we went to the hall. I sang the Korean National Anthem. I was feeling frightened because I had to hold the microphone. I had to start singing first and the parents were looking at me. I was shy because I didn't want the to look at me. Mrs Hawes took a photo of me. By Sarah

TPS Cultural Week

My Weekend

On Saturday I went to Rainbows End. I played at Rainbows End. And we went to a restaurant. When we finished eating diner we went to go home, but the bus could not move at all because one tyre fell down the hole. One hour later a car helped to get the tyre out of the hole. It hooked up the bus and pulled it out of the hole and we went home. It was a very long day.

Ji yong's X country

On Friday morning, our whole school walked to Jordan field at Memorial park to do cross country. In the beginning, we sat on the tarpaulin in our house colours. Next, we started off with year 6 girls.Unfortunatly, nobody in Huria came 1st, 2nd, or 3rd to get house points. After three races, were year 5 boys. I was really nervous. My goal was to come between 1st to 7th to get into south cluster. Mr Miguire told us that we are running two gigantic laps. It sounded really hard. At the end, I came 8th. I was really exhausted at the last lap. I was really sad because I just missed my goal, but it was worthwhile because I did better than last year. By Jiyong

Jae Hyeon's Cross Country

Interesting Facts About Insects living in the garden

1. The hoverfly can blow off back wards, side ways and of course forewords.

2. Ants can carry many times their own weight and other insects can't.

3. Ladybird defend themselves by sending out a stinky water from between the joints of their legs so other insects can't eat them.

By Leo Lim


A frog is an amphibian. An amphibian can live in water and on land. Frogs are cold blooded, which means their bodies are the same temperature as where they are.

Frogs live in wet place such as rain forests, trees, burrows, around the ponds and creeks. Frogs live in a variety of different habitats. They need to live near the water otherwise they get dry and they die. They suck moisture through their skin to live. But the moisture can come out of their body through their skin which means they get dried up.

A frog sheds it skin about once a week. After it pulls off the old, dead skin, the frog usually eats it.

One gram of the toxin produced by the skin of the golden poison dart frog could kill 100,000 people.
