I’m Lauren, I turned 11 in February and I live in Adelaide South Australia, I’ve never done the student blogging challenge before but I’m really excited about it.
I’m a pretty clumsy, easily angered, risk-taking person. Sometimes I do let things get the best of me and one of my worst fears besides bees and wasps is people not liking me for who I am, I also don’t like elevators but I like escalators, I also don’t like buses.
I live with my mum, dad, sister – Izzy and brother – Ollie (who are both younger than me) but you can’t forget about my adorable dog, Max, who’s a two year old (I think he’s two, he could be three though,) German Shepherd.
My favourite colours are: any combination of green and blue, green, blue, most shades of purple, most shades of red and I also like some shades of yellow. I like black and white even though I know they aren’t colours. I don’t really like the colour pink although I know it’s a shade of red.
I love zip-lining, climbing on things and jumping up to high places. I love to challenge myself and take risks, unless if you’re asking me to eat a banana and then the answer is no!
Some of my favourite sports are; netball, touch football, horse-riding & swimming. I love playing new sports. When I’m not playing a sport I’m either on my laptop, playing with my dog, singing and dancing or eating (or chilling in my room).
I am pretty good at robotics & coding, I love learning about different types of coding languages and programs. I have built my own computer which actually works. I love using Code.org, Grok, Scratch and having competitions with Sonali who is also doing the student blogging challenge.
My favourite subjects at school (except for lunch and recess because apparently they don’t count as lessons,) are S.T.E.M (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), Science which is a 1/4 of S.T.E.M, Drama, ECP, P.E. (Physical education – also known as sport), I also like whenever we are doing Edublogs because I love meeting new people even if they don’t meet me in person, I also love technology and since we are using Edublogs on a laptop I’m pretty good at using it.
I love horses (my favourite breeds of horses include: Hanoverians, Shetland ponies, Falabellas and any Welsh sections,) dogs (my favourite breeds of dogs are: German shepherds, Golden retrievers because I use to have one, King Charles Cavaliers, French bulldogs and miniature fluffy poodle-ish dogs) and farm animals. I would love to have my own chestnut/black/brown horse. My favourite food is, well I don’t really have any. I don’t like shop bought whipped cream or anything with bananas although I love banana bread and really don’t like banana flavoured bubblegum. I don’t like creamy stuff, but I love ice-cream because who doesn’t?
Something that really annoys me is learning distant relatives names, I find it really awkward when my dad or mum’s cousins know my name but I have no idea what their name’s are. It definitely doesn’t help when you see your family about every 1 – 3 years because they live on the other side of the world (in the UK).
I love going to the UK because whenever I’m over there I get to ride and look after horses, see my cousins and the rest of my family and sometimes play with adorable rabbits, I don’t think the rabbits like me though.
I like travelling and when I’m travelling I like learning new flags, eating new food and finding out new facts about countries.
I’m super grateful for all my amazing friends at Wilderness School, I’ve gone to Wildy since I was a little toddler so I have had a lot of time to make friends and I am still making lots of new friends.
On my blog, I’m planning to do school-related tasks because my blog is made by my amazing year 6 teachers. If I have a choice of what I can do on my blog I’m going to post a lot of photos of my dog and horses, I also really love technology and quotes.
I hope you enjoy my blog and I hope to check out your blog(s) soon!
