Dubstep is a type of genre that uses electronic sounds to create music. The sounds used were familiar to drum and bass sounds. One of the main sounds that Dubstep tracks used was the bass drop. In the track the percussion would stop, then the track would start again but will be much more louder.

The first tracks were made all the way back to the late 1990’s. Dubstep developed upon the years and became better and better by the moment. It even became a beat box rhythm. People all over the world started liking dubstep. One of the most famous Dubstep DJs name was Skrillex. He is my favourite Dubstep DJ.

Netbook Reflection 2012

This year has been a great year, especially with our netbooks. When I first got it I did not know anything about it. But now, I know a lot more about our netbooks. Netbooks have been really helpful with my learning in many ways. But at the same time it makes learning really fun everyday I go onto it. My netbook is a big change to my learning, a really big change.

I think netbooks are better than Pencil and Paper because it makes learning fun. Also its easier to delete mistakes, and if I spell a word wrong it is easier to correct it. It keeps all my work neat and tidy no matter how much I have. There are just too many reasons why netbooks are better. So we are all lucky to have these netbooks, but its not just our school that are lucky, there are six other schools as well.

It sounds like there are no problems with our netbooks right?. But there are some problems, like the hinges of the netbook, they are really weak one of mine has come off but still sits in its place. Also the screen quality is very vulnerable, and has no protection whatsoever. The pages that come up before you login takes time that we really need for our learning.

Overall this year has been a great year with our netbooks. A big thanks to the manaiakalani trust for everything you’ve all gone through to get our netbooks, I really appreciate it. This year has been really fun, I hope next year is even better!

Camp Bentzon

Camp Bentzon Funny Story

It was going to be a big day of activities, we started the day with a run through the bushes. Then came back had some free time and then had breakfast. We had some more free time after that, our first activity of the day came up it was Burma Trail. Burma Trail is where you are blindfolded and follow a rope. You also have a partner to instruct you on the way. It was fun.

Walking back from the Burma Trail we were all having lots of fun, but not that I knew something really awesome was about to come my way. Coming down was slippery because it was spitting rain. When we got to the bottom I saw Antonio behind a tree. “Come Robert” Antonio continued “ Lets hide from Mrs V”. So Me and Antonio Hid behind the tree, but we were found because one of the other kids told. There were lots of bumps on the ground, but I still ran across it. It did not turn out well, I did a barrel roll, Side-flip, Ninja thing. Whoever saw me laughed except for one person. It was Mrs V.

So don’t run over grounds with lots of bumps on it, but if you want to have a go then ,do it.
