Swimarama and Movies

Hay everybody on Sunday the 7 on January My siblings, parents and a couple of friends went to the pools and the movies. Once Again we went to swimarama and had so much fun. We went to the pools with Eva's friend Mia and Ajani's friend Josh. First we got changed and went off to the pools then we paid our money and went in. The first pool I went in was the outside and cold pool. Then when I got  too too cold I went inside into the warm pools. After I went back outside and swam a bit more. Then I got tired and so I went to our table and ate my lunch. Once I ate my lunch we all went into the cold pool and played a game. We played catch with a handball, I was in a team with my dad, sister and Mia. My brother was in a team with Josh and Tane (Josh's little brother). Then once we finished swimming we got changed into dry clothes and went off to the movies. We went and watched Jumanji, we got our tickets and went into the cinema and waited till the movie started. Jumanji is about a group of people getting sucked into a game. In the game there is a curse on the jungle and they had to find out a way of reversing the curse. The way you have to leave the game is you have to complete the game and yell out it's name. That is all I will be sharing your going to have to go and watch it your self.



 I had so much fun

  1. Hey Jahzara, it's Billy here from the Summer Learning Journey. It's awesome to see that you are posting blogs during your summer holidays. I am especially impressed because you have written so much! What a great way to make sure you are still practicing your awesome writing over the summer.

    Swimarama sounds like an awesome place! It's cool that they have pools with a variety of temperatures to suit whatever you feel like. Swimming always makes me hungry too!

    That's so lucky that you were able to watch Jumanji, what a fun day. I have seen the original movie heaps of times when I was younger but I haven't seen the new remake that has just come out.

    What was it like? Did you enjoy it? I hope it wasn't too scary, the original was or at least it was when I was young!

    Thanks, glad to hear you're having a super holiday!

    1. Hi Billy,

      Thanks for the comment. Did you know Swimarama also has a slide and a diving board too. Have you ever been to Swimarama? I've been lots of times.

      I have seen the original movie of Jumanji too but I couldn't remember what it was about. My mum showed us when we were younger so that's probably why I can't remember what it's about.

      My mum told me a bit more about the original Jumanji and it does sound the same. I enjoyed it very much and I loved it. I'm alright with scary things to be honest but I did get frights when there was like scary pop ups.


      I hope you go and see Jumanji soon

    2. Hey Jahzara, thanks for the response!

      I've never been to Swimarama. Where is it? I'd love to go sometime.
      That's cool that it has a diving board, do you know how high it is?

      Yeah the original Jumanji was scary, but maybe it was just because I was a lot younger. Yes, you're right, it's mostly only scary when you're not expecting something and it pops out and gives you a fright.

      What are some other movies that you like? What's the best one you've seen lately? Do you watch a lot of television shows too?

      Thanks, looking forward to hearing more!

      And yes, I will have to go see Jumanji soon to see how good it is compared with the original!

    3. Hay Bill,

      Swimarama is around Panmure. (Address) 29 Lagoon Dr, Panmure, Auckland 1741. Unfortunately I have no idea how high the diving boards are at swimarama.

      I do like action movies and horror movies too. Iv'e watched many horror movies and it's not to bad (well half the time). My favorite movie that I have seen so far is Star wars: the last Jedi. My favorite character has to be Rey. Do you like Star wars? Have you seen the new releases? I do watch lots of television shows and my favorite show is family fued. We also have the board game. Do you like family fued.

    4. Hey again Jahzara, thank you for your rapid response!

      Thanks for sharing the address for Swimarama. It sounds like a fun time!

      Horror movies, wow, I find them too scary. What's the scariest horror movie you have seen? They can be scarier when you watch them by yourself, in the dark, with thunder and lightning outside.

      Yeah I love Star Wars, I grew up watching them. That is, the three that came out in the early 2000s. I actually haven't seen the two new ones.

      I watch quite a bit of television too and often watch family feud. I find Dai Henwood really funny. It's a cool show because you can yell at the television and get involved with the questions, sharing what you think the most popular answer might be. It always seems so easy at home but I bet if you went on the show you would find it much more difficult, with people staring at you and all of the pressure!

      What is the board game like? Is it worth buying?

      Thanks, Billy

  2. Hay Bill,

    Yes I do agree horror movies can be a bit scary when your by yourself in the dark but I normally watch horror movies with my cousins. The scariest movie I have seen so far is conjuring. I've almost watched all of them but I didn't want to watch then recent one because it looked to scary.

    Me and my mum is a big star wars fan. Every time we would walk pass a star war poster and pillow we always seem to get it another time. Me and my mum are hoping to see another star wars release and if there will be we have to go and see it.

    Dai Henwood is really funny, sometimes I can't stop laughing at some of his jokes. Yes me and my family love to get involved with the answers and questions. The board game is really fun and is just like the real game. it have round 1, round 2 (double points), round 3 (double points), fast money (round 4 and triple points) and you can also be the host. I think if you love quiz's and family fued it is worth buying the board game. My family acully got it for a Christmas present from our aunty.

  3. Hey! Oh wow that is a scary movie. I started watching that in the cinemas and had to leave early I was so scared. Haha it's strange that you enjoy scaring yourself.

    Yeah Star Wars movies are pretty awesome. Have you seen any of the older ones? Which is your favourite? We have light sabers and we often have battles pretending we are in the movie. It seems like they will never stop making Star Wars movies.

    That's a really kind gift to receive from your auntie. It must be fun being the host because you can crack jokes and act like Dai Henwood. Do you think you would be good on the actual show? What are some of the questions in the board game? Ask me one and I'll try to give you the top 5 answers from the survey.

    There's also an Australian and American family feud version.

    Thanks, look forward to hearing more.

    :)

      I have seen some of the old Star wars movies and it is pretty good. My favorite Star wars movie has to be Star wars: the force awakens. What is yours?

      I don't think I would be the great on Family fued because I do not like being on camera. I love being the host because I love do Q&A with my family. We have the music family game board so most of the Questions are music Questions.

    2. Hey good morning,

      I really like Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones from 2002. I was only ten years old and I thought it was pretty awesome, I remember going to the movies to see it with my dad.

      Haha yeah me neither, I would be really nervous on camera. It must be fun being the host because you can crack jokes and be silly like Dai Henwood.

      Hmmm that's a tough one... I'm going to say;

      first choice: flute
      second choice: drums

      Ugh I guess the drums are kind of made out of wood. Yikes, I'm not feeling terribly confident Dai, how did I do?

      Thanks, Billy

  4. Hey Billy,

    Star wars is pretty cool. I always go and watch Star wars with my mum because we seem to be the only star wars fan.

    Yes it is pretty cool being the host because you do get to crack jokes.

    for your first answer you got right for 18 points. Flute/pipe was the third correct answer. Drums was not on the board so you got 18 points in total. Can you think of any other answer? It is pretty hard trying to think of an answer when you have a timer timing you.

    You did pretty well for a beginner.

    1. Hey good morning,

      It's cool how there a lots of different Star Wars fans. What other kinds of movies do you like? Super hero? Harry Potter?

      I was going to say guitar. That is partly made of wood. It's a tough question!

      How about you give me another, I know I'll do better this time.

      Thanks, Billy

    2. Hay Billy,

      I love Harry Potter. Me and my family has been watching Harry Potter during these school holidays. Do you like Harry Potter?

      Guitar is actually the top answer for 30 points. Well done.

      Name A Musical Instrument That Is Soothing.
      there are 6 answers.

      Hopefully this is easy enough.

  5. Hey, yeah I grew up with Harry Potter. I love it! What's your favourite Harry Potter movie? Who is your favourite Harry Potter character?

    Oh wow, that's good. I should have said guitar first.

    Hmmm...I am going to guess piano.

    How did I do?

    Billy :)

  6. Hay Billy

    My favorite Harry Potter movie is: Harry Potter and the order of the phoenix. Hmmm... I have a lot of my favorite Harry Potter characters but my favorite character has to be Dumbledore.

    Piano is the 4 correct answer and you scored 20 points. Anything else?

    Jahzara

  7. Hey, what happens in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix? You might need to refresh my memory.

    My favourite is the one where he competes in those vicious games, I think it might be the Goblet of Fire?

    Dumbledore is awesome, he is so wise and clever, and slightly funny at times. I quite like Hagrid, Ron and Hermione.

    20 points! That's not too bad. I would have thought it would be higher than that though.

    Hmmm...classical guitar, flute? I'm not sure you've given me an easy one. I think you're giving me all the hard ones!

    Haha how about another?

    Thanks, Billy

  8. Hey Bill,

    In Harry Potter and the order of the phoenix lord Voldemort returns. An other teacher ends up in the movie is well, her name is Dolores Umbridge, real name Imelda Staunton. It's really cool.

    Hay, Harry Potter and the Goblet of the fire is my mums favorite

    How about an other type of question not a music question.

  9. Hey Jahzara! Oh yeah, now I remember. Thanks! They always changed the defense against the dark arts teacher.

    Yeah it's a good movie. It's cool how the other two schools stay at Hogwarts and participate in the games. I liked the first event, where they had to defeat a dragon, and Harry gets the scariest one.

    Have you ever read any of the Harry Potter books?

    We now return to Family Feud...with Dai Henwood!
    "That's a good question Dai, I am going to have to guess...a museum!"

    My second guess would be an art gallery.

    How did I do?

    Thanks, Billy

  10. Hey Billy,

    Yeah Harry Potter and the Goblet of the fire has so much unexpected challenges. My favorite challenge is the second, where they have to find some of their friends under water.

    I don't really read the Harry Potter books but I would love to some time during school maybe.

    Hay, an other Harry Potter movie is coming on tomorrow (Friday). On channel 3. Are you going to watch it?

    Now here are the answers from Billy...

    Museum and a art gallery, not bad answers.

    And the top answer is.... Museum for 68 points!!! that is a lot of points. Is Art gallery up on the board..... and yes it is for 5 points. Art gallery was the third correct answer on the board. do you have anything else on your mind?

  11. Hey Jahzara, thanks for continuing this great conversation. Yeah that is a cool challenge, the third challenge in the maze is kind of scary. It's a bit sad when Cedric Diggory dies. Which Harry Potter movie is on television tonight?

    Wow, I did really well! I must say so.

    Hmmm I wonder what the second answer could be. This is a tricky one Dai!
    As team leader, I am going to ignore my family's terrible suggestions, and go with my gut. I guess the Pick and Mix station at the super market?

    I'm not too confident with this one Mr. Henwood.

    Thanks, Billy

    1. Hey Billy,

      I agree I is really sad when Cedric Diggorys dies.
      Hmm.... I think Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is coming on tonight. I am so excited to watch some more Harry Potter movies.

      I'm sorry Billy but the Pick and Mix station at the super market is not on the board. do you want to know the remaining answer? There is only one left.

  12. Hey Jahzara, yeah they're awesome, they're always long and well done. Harry Potter is definitely the kind of movie that everyone in the family likes. It's cool on one of the movies when they go into that small tent and on the inside it's huge. I can't remember what movie it's from or why it springs to mind.

    Haha I am not surprised it wasn't on the board. It was a bit of a stretch! I'm going to have one more guess and then give up, I guess ... a china shop. Or an antiques store.

    We might have to move on to another question haha sorry I am not the best at this game.

    2. Hey Jahzara,

      Yeah my family love Harry Potter. When we were growing up we would always go see the new movie at the cinemas. And then talk about it for a week.

      Oh wow, I am quite impressed with myself, I better give myself a pat on the back for that one.

      Yes please Dai, I want that brand new car!
