In the olden day’s (last year), I use to work with a pencil and a book. No one would see my writing, so what was the point?
This year our Pt.England students from years 5-8 can work with their netbook. Netbooks help our learning and let’s us share it with the world. With out it, learning would be dull.
Somethings I like this year about my netbook is that it is easier to research with. You don’t have to look at books to find things out. Having full time access to the internet also means it’s easier for me to share my learning on my own blog.
I have to say though, there are some things I don’t like though. Sometimes the Internet goes very slow. That’s because everyone else with their netbook is on it. I also wish they could improve the drawing application, it is so babyish.
If the netbook pilot in Glen Innes failed then I would feel disappointed. A netbook has changed our learning in many ways. One way that our netbook has helped us is that, most of us have gone up in writing.

One of my favourite poems were written by a man named Kenn Nesbitt. It is called, Our Teacher Sings The Beatles.
Our teacher sings The Beatles. She must know every song. We ask her please to stop but she just sings, "It Won't Be Long." And then she croons like Elvis. She clearly thinks it's cool. And if we beg her not to she just belts out, "Don't be Cruel." She then does Michael Jackson. It drives us nearly mad. We have to cover up our ears because she's singing, "Bad." She winds up with The Wiggles or else a Barney song, and, even worse, she tells us all that we should sing along. It's all my fault she does this. I feel like such a fool. I wish I'd never brought my karaoke box to school.
Kenn Nesbitt has a talent, and it is to write poems.

On Thursday 8th of December was Pt England's Junior and Senior prize giving. I was lucky because I got a prize. 100% attendance, School Ambassador, 3rd place Academic and distinction in writing. For Ambassador I got a bag for my netbook. I can't wait to use it. My mum was so proud of me and I was proud of myself as well. My friends Litia, Shoal, Chante, Rita, Brooklyn, Serena and Jay'lee also got a prize. I can't wait for next years prize giving!!!
