On labour day 2014 Oaklands school had its 50th jubilee.And thats makes the school 50 years old,the school has changed allot over the years.50 years ago,in 1964 almost everything was different.There used to only be 7 classes and 240 children,and now we have 25 classes and 580 children.Also we used to have 9 staff but now we have 27 teaching staff.
Back in 1964 the school uniform was very different,back then the boy's wore a white t-shirt and a tie,green shorts or pants.The girls had a white t-shirt and green gym frocks.But thats only the first uniform,because the second was not even a uniform you could wear whatever you wanted.Then it came to what we have now. boy's have a red t-shirt that has oaklands written in green,green shorts or pants.girls wear the same red shirt and have a green skirt,shorts or pants.And both wear green polarfleeces and green hats.The two hat types are bucket hat and brim hat.
IN ANOTHER 50 YEARS
In 50 years time we may not even have to go to school,we may only have to pull up a holographic screen at home and have the teachers send us work while we are doing what we normally do at home as well as our school work.

There was a green cat.He lived in a big brown box beside a broken swimming pool.One day the cat decided to go for a walk.So he left the pool and went outside.He saw a playground in the distance and he ran all the way there.It was a big rusty old playground,it looked ancient.The green cat jumped onto a seesaw but it just fell apart.Then suddenly a mysterious light lifted him into the sky.The light gave him magical powers and he could now speak English.Once he had fallen back down to earth he walked back home only to find it was surrounded by people"why are you here"asked the the cat but instead of answering him they all ran away screaming.He was confused by what happened so he went over to his box and fell asleep.

it was the year 1002.There was a great necromancer named Zanlin who was terribly evil.Everybody hated and feared him until a Mage named Jurgan Windcaller came.He was a light mage and with a warrior named Jack the dragon slayer they destroyed Zanlin the dark necromancer and turned him to stone.
They thought that was the end but it wasent because 1012 years later it all happened again.A marshal was examining the statue like Zanlin when he started glowing.And he turned back to normal and took over the world.Before long the two heros defeated Zanlin once more.

Amanda was an average person with short brown hair. Her life was pretty normal,normal house,normal job and a reasnibly normal family and she worked at a supermarket in the city centre. In her spare time she would go to the library and get some books out.Today wasn't a very good day for her.
She lost her job because the supermarket that she worked at somehow went up in flames. And it would only get worse. So to make herself feel better,that afternoon she went to the library. On her way there she ran into the library's owner Mr Linden ." Amanda please try to remember what I'm about to tell you,please DO NOT read the book at the end of the ninth shelf ,I'm sorry but I have to go now"warned Mr Linden as he ran down the street. I wonder what that was all about.amanda thought to herself. And she continued walking to the library. Once she was inside the library a librarian asked her what she was going to get . So Amanda replied " I'll just be getting two books ".then she walked away. First she walked over to the second shelf and picked out a book called the adventures of the giraffe king. Next she walked to the ninth shelf and spotted a book with a pale fleshy cover she looked closer and noticed it had no title " weird " questioned Amanda. Then she took the two books over to the librarian and said "I'll get these two."
Amanda walked home after she left the library. Once she got home she went to bed and read the untitled book. She opened it to find there was no writing. In confusion she skimmed through the pages untill leaves and vines and even a flower began growing out of the centre of the book. The vines aggressively lached onto her neck and the flower opened and spraied a green dust at her and she fell asleep.
Then she woke up but was still asleep....

CHOOSE YOUR CULTURE AND TREAT IT FOUR WAYS
We are learning about the elements and techniques of painting
We are able to share our cultural identities through the arts
1.We had to choose a culture that one of our perants are from or the culture we were born in.
I chose NewZealand and the tuatara I choose the tuatara because it is the native lizard
and it has being around since the dinosaurs.
2.Then we learnt about Andy Warhol and his famous.
Pop-art is when you take an icon or a famous person and
copy them down four times on a A2 peace of paper.
3. After that we learnt about the colour wheel and the different
colours on it like:
PRIMARY COLOURS-Red,blue and yellow.
SECONDARY COLOURS-Made by mixing any two
of the primary colours .
COMPLEMENTARY COLOURS-Colours that are opposite
the primary colour on the colour wheel.
ANALOGOUS COLOURS-Three colours that are side by side on the
MONOCHROME COLOURS Three shades of one colour.
I chose Complementary-Blue and orange.
Analogous-Purple,blue and green.
Black and white.
To finish off I will add detail in black
I think I did well with the colours I chose.
