Prize Giving Practise

It was so quiet when we got into the hall. It was like no one was there, we all got into little groups and learned the dance. Practising and practising made me so tired. Finally we got into our line and silently walked up on the stage to our spots. Heads down says" Miss Garden. Down went my head and of went the song.


Dancing to the song felt like a disco is going on. I really liked the dance, it was easy and kind of hard remembering it. My Favourite dance is when the song Hall of Fame plays on. I just love dancing to that song.


Exhausting dancing I said to my friend by my side. While walking down the steps I felt great because our prize giving dance is finished but we still have more dancing practise to do. “Oh no” I said.

Hope's Netbook Reflection 2013

What I like about my netbook is that it’s easy to search and do things. But sometimes I get frustrated when I share my work with people on my google account, It frustrates me if I have done my work and it just disappears and I can’t get it back. Using paper makes my hands tired. It would be better if hyperstudio could be on our netbooks so we don’t need to wait for the person to finish on the Imac.

Writing got easier when we all got our netbooks. Sometimes it’s good to do it on paper so that you don’t get distracted and go on the wrong thing. I think it is good that we can only use our netbook properly if we don’t break it or get angry at it.

(Katz) Kawau Island

`
I said “Bye”, to my family and I felt so sad that I wanted to go back home, but I just didn’t want to miss all the fun things they are going to do at Camp Bentzon. I didn’t want to cry. So then we put all of the bags into the bus and off we went. “Bye, bye”! I shouted out the window.

On the bus we went past the city and it looked so amazing. I just couldn’t wait to see Camp Bentzon even though I still had feelings for home. Off the bus and on the ferry we go. It took so long because we had to put the bags into the ferry. Luckily we were on the top of the ferry it was so scary.


Finally we got there but we just had one problem. We had to go for a walk. As we were walking we stopped where these rocks were stacked and Isara had to make up a speech for Pt England. After that we started walking again. “I’m so tired” I said to my friends. We kept walking until we got to a beach where some old people were living.

The next day we did different activities and it was so fun. My best activity was sailing because me and my partner Annliz were sailing. While sailing we ended up on this other beach. It was crack up. Then peter the sailing man came and told us how to get back. We manage to get back on our own.

It was time to get back on the ferry and back to school. It was sad and exciting because I’m going to see my family. We had the best days of our life.


Thank you to Annliz for editing my Writing

This week room fifteen has been in Sylvia park to see the Manaiakalani Film Festival. I was one of the presenters of my class and my friend Laita was one of them to. We practise and practise until we got our speeches. My favourite movie was the Asonto Tamaki College. My aunty was in that video and I was like" aye "that my aunty.  She was doing the Asonto with the kids in Tamaki College.



My other favourite movie was room sixteen it was so funny when Levi tried throwing the shot put but it actually wasn't a shot put it was a ball. When he throws it up and it came back down and banged on his head. It was nearly me and my partner Laita's turn to present. I was so nervous that I was shivering.

Me and Laita walked and sat on the steps next to Mrs Burt. I was so nervous because it was our turn next. We got the microphone of Mrs Burt and walked so scared. Finally I got up the stage and talked. I wanted to say it fast but then some people might just not understand. Yey as I was walking down the step to go and sit down. After watching all those amazing movie the presenters went to eat our morning tea.


Then Mrs Telea listen up these people will be presenting again now. My friend Lisia and Gloria names came up then I heard my name and my partner Laita I was like OMG!

The Big Crash

One sunny day  there was a boy called Ronnie and he had a sister called Isabella. They wanted to do a fun thing but actually it was dangerous. They jumped from the roof and bounced on the jumperleen.

Ronnie was first to jumped.  As he crawled to the edge of the roof, he finally got the thought that it was a bad idea. But he still jumped. “Oh no,!” Said Isabella “He’s hurt.” “I think my arm is broken” yelled out Ronnie.

Isabella called out her mum.  Suddenly, she could hear a big thumping noise, and it started to get closer and closer. “What has happened.”  Isabella said “He broke his arm. Now I don’t know what to do.”

Within an attempt, Mum said “Bring him to the car”.  “ Where are we going?” Isabella said. “We are going to the hospital.” replied mum. They took him to have a look at his arm. They put a cast on his arm. Ronnie stopped crying. They went back home and never did something dangerous like that again.

Hilarious Paralympics

We got to the courts and Mr Marks said get into two team so I did. My partner was Meleane. We started with a game that you had to tie a band around your arm and you would have to run.
                                 
It felt awkward and it was kind of funny too. My partner Meleane started first and I was cheering for her. Then it got to my turn I ran and came back laughing I couldn’t stop. We even played some other games and it was funny.                                                                                                                                      

One of the games were my favourite. It was the one that we had to throw the ball as far as you can with one leg missing. It felt like I’m missing limbs.  It was hilarious because people keep falling down. Then we had to swop legs and that was a little bit challenging.

So it was time to go back to class. We lined up and walked back to class laughing. It was hilarious.

Five a side Football

Five a side Football is a game that people play which I haven’t played, but I know how to play. The players are blindfolded because some of them are are blind and it’s not fair for them if some could see. Then there is a ball that has a bell in it so people know where it is. It looks really tricky to me but they make it look easy. Some of the Football players have fast legs like the wind it goes like a zigzag to. The goalkeeper can see but the players can’t, they are visually impaired.

Exhausting Running

Nervously I walked up to Mr Burt. On your mark get set GO! Of I went running as fast as I can. Puddles were everywhere but I didn’t even care I just keep running. Running with muddy shoes I felt icky.

Halfway there I was already tired. Running through broken bridges and cricket paths it was kind of scary and dangerous at the same time. I didn’t want to slip or fall ether. I tried getting in front of those boy but they are just blocking the way. ‘I said can you move and finally they moved to the side.I was nearly near the finish line and I was coming second. As I was running I really
wanted to keep on that amount of number but I just couldn’t.

Finally at the finish line I came third I was kind of happy because I was going to the interzone.
That’s what I was aiming for. Huffing and puffing sitting down cheering my team. I had muddy and icky shoes and it was yuk.

I felt sticky and wet too. I had muddy feet. Cross Country turn up fun to me I really wanted to run again.

While cutting the onion I had watering eyes. After cutting the onion me and grace broke it into pieces. Then it was time to pass it onto the next person. After that Mr Marks cooked it into the BBQ while we were going to IcT and music.

When we got there the girls had to go on the multimedia to finish of our animation while the boys do there work on there netbooks.  In twenty
five minutes we will rotate’’ said Mr Jacobsen.  After twenty five minutes we rotated. Then when I was walking to class from music I could already smell the wafting of sausages.

Coming from ICT I saw stack of sausages on the BBQ. I thought it was stack of log from trees. It look burnt but it wasn’t.

So it was time to eat it. Mr Marks put a sausages and some onions on my bread. I even put some tomato sauce on. I started eating it and it was deliciously yum.

Getting ready for my rugby training I changed into my spare clothes. I got changed and ran down to the bottom field. Then we started with a warm up. Our warm up was to run around the field, we ran quickly like there was a race going on. Finally we got back with exhausted legs. We caught our breath and did some stretches.

We started with some skills drills. Our skills were to run and try to get a try, passing the ball to each others. If we knock it on we have to do some star jumps. I didn’t want to be one of them I said quietly to myself. Whoo! Miss V whistle she said “Stop!” We're going to do a different skill. It was truck and trailer.

Truck and trailer has two people and one is the truck who take the trailer around. The trailer has to follow the truck. I was the truck so I had to take  my partner Ata around. This was to help us to follow our enemies. So then we finished with a game. We got put into to two teams. I was one team and Jordyn was another team. As we were playing we notice we were dirty. After that game we went to wash our legs and walked back with sore legs.

Sea creatures


If rain did not fall sea creatures will possibly will not survive.

There are a few parts of the world were it doesn’t rain in the desert.
So plants and animal can’t live there.

Rain supplies us and animals.
It help plant grow.
Even helps animal to survive.

Some people in the city get angry when it rain. They forget how farmers need rain for the grass and crops.

Alien Pet shop


Once upon a time I was sleeping on my bed, suddenly I could feel someone putting me into a bag. Brightly I saw the light. Trying to open my eyes I could see an alien.

Thinking I thought it was a dream, I try slapping my face to see if I was awake. Noo I said’ it not a dream.


shaking my hardest they took me to a pet cage. They left me there and they feed me strange food. Closing my eyes I nearly vomited in the cage. Yuk’ I said’’ spitting out the strange food. Then someone wearing a disguise of a robot came and saved me. Yey!

Clay shop


Entering the clay shop felt so cool. Looking at the clay thinking it was smooth.
We had to find a seat and listen to the instructors. Our instructor were Sue and Georgia.
First we had to pick a design out of a book but I decided to pick my own design. I picked my name and some love hearts.



Straight away I put my hand up. Waiting for the clay I was thinking who should I give it to.
Finally the clay was in front of me. So I decided to give it for my mum. I started to cut the clay with a cubarb stick. I cut it into a square and then I put my name on it.



Then I ‘’said’ I am ready to decorate my work. So I went up to the table and I pick and glass of colors. It was too hard to pick because it had all my favourite colors. There was green, light purple, yellow, orange, blue, and pink. So I just choose three colors green, light purple and blue. So I was finished so I gave Sue.

We were finished and we had to go so I said’’ bye. I wish we could go back there next time.

Claude Monet


Claude Monet was a french impressionist painter who enjoyed painting the same subject, landscape or cityscape. Each painting captured a moment in time. Each show  different colours and light.



Monet created a beautiful water garden at his home Giverny and he used the same subject over and over again. He liked the way the water was constantly reflecting the world.


The famous paintings of the Japanese bridge show an arched bridge crossing a pond. The pond also changes colours the day or season. It is surrounded with tree and shrubs reflecting light of it surface.

In the painting of the tall portugueses woman he painted a large leafed plant on the left hand side.
Each leaf he used contrast colours. In the center of the picture he used circle as she was working.

Jackson Pollock Art


Happily Rm 15 went outside to paint an artwork just like Jackson Pollock’s art. We grabbed  a piece of huge cardboard and a piece of A3 paper. I sellotaped my A3 paper to my cardboard. Quickly we ran outside and started to flick. As I was flicking on my paint I could already feel paint on me!

I used multiple colours for my painting like blue, yellow, black, white, pink and different other colours. It felt icky but it was still fun. Messily my hands were covered with paint.
Sadly I got paint on my uniform.

Jackson Pollock was a frenchman who lived in America. I think he was from New york. He also smoked and drank a lot. He has a wife and her name is Lee Krasner. Sadly he died when he was 44 year old.

First day of swimming


Wow! It is our first day of swimming. As I was walking down the path I could hear the wind blowing our plastic bag. When we got there I could smell the chlorine. Jogging slowly we nearly slipped on the slippery surface.


Quickly we took of our uniform and walked to have a quick shower. Then it was time to test our swimming so that which pool team do we go to.
Me and grace went first we were so excited. We swam meander down to the other end of the pool so when we got there we took a sizable breath.


Tiredly we swam back and then it was time for me and grace to know which team are we. Ben “said’ you are both in team three so we jump out of the pool. We were so jubilant and off we went to the big pool. Along the side we sat on the wall waiting for our instructor to come. Then we had many rounds of swimming freestyle, backstroke and rocket arms.

Sadly we all had jump out and change into our dried uniform. While we were waiting we put on our shoes and got ready to walk back to school. Very quickly we lined up and walked outside. When we got there it was already lunchtime. I was so glad because we are going to the pool the next day.

Rippa Rugby girls at Enden park

On Friday the 27th of April the rippa rugby girl went to Eden park. As we were on our way Ms Vaafusuaga played some songs and we sang along with it. Then as we got out of the van we race down under the trees before it started to rain again. As soon as Ms Vaafusuaga ran to get the tickets. Gracefully we got in and went to see inside of it. In a rush we went to line up so that we could go first. When we went through the gates I was really amazed how cool it looked. As well it was my first time there.


Then it was time to go on the field. We put on our tags and hurtled on. I was the captain and grace was the vice captain. First we play rock paper scissors. The alarm started and off we played. Fast as we went to tag there tags off. It was half so we ran of. Then we changed players and then ran quickly on to the field. It was our last chance to beat them so we tried and tried. I “said’ to my team it doesn’t matter unless we had fun.


Then it was time for prize giving. We sat in to lines and wait for our school name to be called. There they “said’ I was shock. I walked up so happy and hold the trophy. They happily cheered and clapped. Then we went to get changed into our warm clothes. We wait for the Blues games to started. But then the bad weather started. Many of these people were standing with these words at the back of them and it “said ask me and we went to ask them for a flag and they gave us some. The game started and boomed the fire boomed past and there the blues came out. But terrifying  thing is that we had to go at half time

Back to school


Guess what! We had assembly today and it was so funny. We got to watch videos from other teams. My favourite was about Mr Barks screaming, dancing and crying. My next favourite was the museum when the queen of samoa did the dougie dance move.

Mr Jacobson was a big paint brush and paint board. It had different colors like blue, yellow, purple and pink. We had so much fun watching the teachers dancing and performing.

As we got to the hall we saw roller blades and table tennis. I was staring at the roller blades.so I ask my group teacher if I could go on it and she said yes but when I got there I was so sad that there was nothing. Then I asked my friend if I could go on it after her and she said yes, I was really excited to go on it.

School Camp

I am looking forward to going to the Swimorama pools. My favourite thing to do there is to go on the hydro slide. I like going down the slide because it is warm

The thing I’m nervous about at camp is kayaking in the sea. I really want to go with two partner’s because if I fall out my partner could help me up. We always put on our life jackets for safety.

obstacle course


Wow guess what we did in the hall? Well room 15 played a game called obstacle course. So we sat down in the hall and listened to Mr Marks instruction. Then Mr Marks put us into two teams girls team an boys team but it wasn’t a race.

Everyone had so much excitement that they wanted to play straight away. Many people went the wrong direction and fell over thing. Some people looked like a zombie when they were looking for there direction.


It was my tern and I had my eyes blind folded. When my eye were cover It was like darkness around me. I went up the bean and down the slippery skipping rope over the round fat beans into the hula hoop and under the tarpaulin upon the double bed and hoped up on the stage.


Then I stopped and tried to get my direction but then I was to scared to jump down because I might fall on the other side. Then I just hop of the stage and onto the soft high jump mat.

school picnic

Do you know what we did last Friday? Well we had a school picnic. Walking down to the reserve nearly everyone was excited for the picnic.


We sat in our line's to listen to Mr Burt. Then we were free to find our sitting places. Wow it was a nice sunny day.


Mr Burt had to call out the team to go up to swim. Many kids ran so quickly into the water! It was like they were racing.


My friends and I played with our teacher. We played force-back . Well we started to play, this is how you play the game. You have to kick the ball and if they catch the ball that means you have to take 10 steps forward and if you kick it past the line that is one point. It was me Grace, Aldora, Annliz, Ana, Mele, Charly and Mr Marks.


It was our turn to swim. We all ran to get changed and ran down to the beach. We splashed the water at each other when we got in. Then we had ten more minutes till we had to get out of the beach. Then It was time to go and get changed into our uniform. After that we all had to go back to school and many people we very exhausted.

Hope kiwifruit



When I had my kiwifruit, it felt soft inside but hard outside. We all felt it and we had to make up a sentence and give it to the class room. It felt like a tennis ball.

I thought it was a round flat oval. Some people thought it was a soft ball and other thought it was a potato. It look like a round circle to me. When I look at it I liked the hairy part.

Suddenly we had some time to consume the kiwifruit. When the kiwifruit got into my mouth
I consumed it all. There were these little seeds in my kiwifruit and I thought it was ant’s. The seeds went into my mouth I bit the seed. It was crunchy and sour.
