Keyboard - Alan the finale ; Tired young couch potato who only sings when outside for money. (Greedy!)
Soprano Ukulele Red - TimTim ; Squeaky voice, kind of annoying... :/ don't tell him I said that!!
Soprano Ukulele Blue - TomTom ; Brother of TimTim, was a bit sadder.
Concert Ukulele - TamTam ; TimTim & TomTom's second cousin, a little bigger, but can sing some good notes! My best pal.
Waterbottle - Suburban white mum ; She would like to see the manager! Listens to 2000's music and does not vaccinate her kids.
Goat poster - Julio Von Spit ; He gets a little annoying at night, as he always falls over. But he's very kind and listens to me when I need to talk.

Brunner Mine Facts

Thelma Ekin Visit - The Mine's Afire

Today, we had one of the authors of The Mine's Afire, Thelma Eakin come on and talk to us. We asked her questions and she gave us the answers. I was happy with the way the classes behaved and listened, and it was very interesting hearing what the author thought of her book. She also brought in a few things to show us: A safety lamp and a brass mini replica of the memorial statue on the flood wall.

Week 8 Maths

This week, I have been doing mostly maths. I am in the Galileos, and we had to do our basic facts, maths maintenance sheet, maths buddy tasks, and a workbook. I have done all of these. I'm happy with the way I worked, and I think I did pretty good.

Here is my workbook.

Chewing gum at school

Chewing gum at school has been an on going debate for the teachers and students. Teachers say it's distracting and disgusting, and students say it helps boost memory, focus and makes them work faster.

Not that any of those reasons are why kids want to chew gum, of course. They just want to seem cool or taste flavor or pop bubbles.

For me, although I love chewing gum, it isn't something that I think I really need to have while working. I find it easier to focus when I'm listening to music, because it blocks out the sounds of everyone else talking. Without music, I'd be talking to my friends and getting a little distracted by what they're doing. I become less focused when I'm not listening to music, which is weird because it's supposed to be better with silence.

If we were aloud chewing gum at school, It might be really distracting with the noise of people chewing all the time. And plus, it's not very enjoyable to pick at chewed up gum on the carpet. Chewing gum is made of synthetic rubber, which leaves 100,000 tonnes of plastic pollution every year. So, every time you chew gum, remember that it is no different to any other form of plastic pollution.

If I won the lotto

If I won the lotto, I would be surpised, first of all.
If I won the lotto, I would buy tickets for concerts (Stray Kids, Red Velvet, NCT).
If I won the lotto, I would give save a lot of it for my future and for family.
If I won the lotto, I would let my family get somethings that they want.

If I won the lotto, I would get some new clothes. Not too much though.
If I won the lotto, I would 'adopt' an animal from the WWF website.
If I won the lotto, I would donate some money somewhere.
If I won the lotto, I would go on holiday somewhere new that I've never been.
With my family, of course.

My favorite movie except it isn't a movie

My favorite show at the moment is Mob Psycho 100, which is a Japanese anime that my brother and I are watching together.
This anime is about a boy named Shigeo Kageyama, nicknamed Mob (モブ Mobu, background character). He seems like a normal boy, but he is actually a powerful esper (someone who has psychic powers).  He believes that his powers have no use in his life so he avoids using them and suppresses his emotions. But when his emotion hits 100, he loses control.

MOB GOES BOOM BOOM

 It gets harder to live a normal life when he meets more espers and get tied up in their "I want to take over the world and YOU can't stop me!", "My psychic powers make me better

than you!" and "you're just a middle schooler, how could you hurt ME?" Haha, funny joke!
Mob

He works as an assistant to con-man (and pro massager) Arakata Reigen, a self proclaimed esper who believes that using your powers to hurt someone else is wrong. Mob looks up to him very much.

At the first episode, I didn't really like the art style and characters, like many other people in the comments. But I was forced by Kyle to watch another episode, so here I am now, announcing that it is my favorite anime. 

Reigen

It's pretty funny, and Reigen turns out not to just be an annoying dude that gets on my nerves. 

A few other characters!

TSUBOMI - mobs crush

DIMPLE KUN - self proclaimed upper-class evil spirit


RITSU KAGEYAMA - Mobs younger brother 

HANAZAWA TERU - esper from Black Vinegar Middle School
