Zoom Zoom Zoom!!

Cars have changed a lot over the past 100 years because they are bigger, better, stronger and faster.

Some of the cars during the 1880’s had three wheels, 2.5 horsepower, no roof and it looked more like a horse carriage.

Nowadays, cars are faster because their engine has more power than older cars and the style of cars has also changed a lot. For instance, they used to have three wheels but now they have four wheels.

The thing that stands out for me inside cars in the present, are how much technology they’ve fitted inside them, there are things like GPS’s (a device that tells you where to go), T.V’s and loads more.

My Highlights About Term 1

One of my high lights during last term was the year 7 and 8 camp because we all had a blast and we really enjoyed it. My favourite part of camp was when my group (Thinkerz) won because of our outstanding performance during swimming sports, we managed to score over 2000 points from just swimming.

Another high light for me was technology at Tamaki College because we were learning about graphics and art is one of my favourite things to do at school. We learnt how to shade things and make them look 3-D. Our task was to create our own cartoon character a title and a something to hold our food in.

I choose the ice cream on a cone because I thought that is will be the easiest thing to make. My title for the ice cream was ‘Creamylicous’ and my character was a ice cream on a cone.

I really enjoyed last term and I wonder how this term will top it.
