About Me

My name is Danielle and I attend Berkley Normal Middle School as a year eight. This blog is all about my learning in school and out of school. There are six people in my family my Mum, Dad, Myself, Amy, Hannah and Patrick. My family lives on a dairy farm where my Mum and Dad work. My hobbies are Irish dancing and swimming. My favourite is Irish dancing so I get to do competitions in Auckland and this year I'm aiming to go to the nationals. My favourite subject at school would be maths because there is always are right or a wrong answer; unlike english when you have to keep improving and keep improving . My favourite tech art is food because I really enjoy cooking and I would love to be on junior master chef. Every year my family go camping with about six other families. We take tents and our boats and go ski biscuiting and fishing and one time we went to Cape Reinga. My favourite year camping was when we visited and snorkeled at the Poor nights New Zealands' best snorkeling attraction. My family love fishing and we belong to a fishing club so we do competitions sometimes. We have been to Fiji and England and they are both great places to visit we went tobogganing and built snowmen in England and we went snorkeling and swam with Manta rays in Fiji. I hope you like my blog and please comment on some of my posts.

The Rose Festival

Last Wednesday Room 10 went to the Hamilton Gardens to judge the roses for the children's choice award.  On Monday Mr Paviour-Smith had come in to talk about the things we needed to look out for while we were judging these roses. Some of these examples were their scent, straight stem, shiny leaves and bright colors.

On the day we were given our marking sheet where we were to name our top 5 roses. We were also given a bit of a quiz where the answer to the question was those of one of the roses on display. This made you really have to stop and look at each individual rose bush and think about it's name. After we were finished judging we marked our answers to the quiz and we went and had a quick walk around the Hamilton Gardens visiting the Modernist garden and the char bargh garden.

Here is a Kizoa I made on the day. Thanks to Mrs Hogg and Evahn for taking these amazing photos on the day.

The following Friday 6 students including me went back to the gardens to enter some roses into the inter school rose competition. Mr Paviour-Smith show us how to display our roses in the vases. We are eagerly awaiting these results.
