Film Festival

On Wednesday we went to Sylvia Park. We went on a bus. We were singing songs on the bus like "The wheels on the bus" , "When I see you again" and "Look away. When we finished singing we arrived at Sylvia Park. We saw ten schools. The schools we saw were Glenbrae, Ruapotika, Point England, Tamaki College and Panmure Bridge. I like St Pius', Glenbrae, Tamaki College's videos. I liked St Pius' movie because Motu was feeling hot and wanted to go swimming. I liked Glenbrae's movie because its about the future. I liked Tamaki College's the most because it was about them being stuck in the dessert.
When we finished watching all the videos we went back to school, then we went home.

Persuasive Writing

Children should wear school uniform because if they wear other clothes then the parents will have to buy you some more clothes.

First reason why children should wear school uniform is because it shows that you are a part of a school. Your parents will think that you look smart and beautiful.

Second reason why children should wear school uniform because if they wear school uniform the parents don't have to spend their money all the time on new clothes for school.

Now we know why children should wear school uniform to school everyday.

Swimming

On Tuesday in the afternoon Room 3 went to swimming. We have swimming on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. When all of Room 3 went we were swimming in the pool at the tennis court. The people without swimming togs didn't swim. Everyone got changed in the tent next to the swimming pool. When we were changed we went into the pool. The instructors were waiting for us in the pool. There was a rope in the middle of the pool and there was an instructor on each side. The instructors names were Emma and  Joesph. They taught us how to Stream Line. Stream-Line is when you put your hands up in the air and dive into the water. They also taught us to Back-Stream, that is when you lay down and float into the water to the other side of the pool.

I learnt a lot from Emma and Joesph. Near the end of swimming we played Bull-Rush in the pool. Playing the games was my favourite part. When we finished we went back to the tent to get changed and went back to the classroom.

Should Children Have to Wear School Uniform?

Some schools have school uniform, some schools don't have a school uniform. My opinion is that kids should wear school uniform.

The first reason for why kids should wear school uniform is because you might get lost somewhere far from your school and people can know what school you are from by your uniform.

Secondly we should wear school uniform because if you don't wear school uniform people might think that you don't go to school.

Last of all I think children should wear school uniform so they can look smart.

So now now you know why school kids should wear school uniform.

The Rainbow Fish

Should the Rainbow Fish give away his scales?
The Rainbow Fish should keep his scales because it is part of his body. When he gave it away it will hurt his body and he will be feeling sad. He does not need to give the anything to be his friend.

Wonderful Holiday

On the weekend I went to the movies and my mum came too. The movie was called Pixels it was about kids that played 80's arcade games like Pac-man, Ping, Centipede and Leap Frog. When the kids become adults the game characters come to life and attack them.

My favourite part of the movie was when all the game characters attacked the people. I like this part because all the game characters including Centipede, Spiders, Pac-man, and Birds start shooting and smashing everything in the city.

I enjoyed the movie so much. When the movie finished we went to visit my Aunty in hospital then went back home.

Sylvia Park movies

In Sylvia Park we went to go watch our movies. The first school to show their movies was St Pius X. Room 3's movie was first. What I learnt from room 3's movie is do not go under the water too long because you won't be able to breathe. I also learnt  do not jump in the pool because you could hit into others. I didn't like one of the  movies because I think they didn't do much.

My favourite movie was Room 3 because they had a lot of information and I learnt the most from this movie.

We caught the bus back to school. I enjoyed watching the movies at Sylvia Park, I learnt alot of new things.

Golf

On Wednesday we jogged to the field to go to Golf. Our coach was Coach Stu. We were split into two groups. We were each numbered, Rosiephine was number 1 Aaliyah was number 2 then I was number 3. There were 3 bases there, base 1, base 2, and base 3. One group had to catch the ball and give the ball back to Coach Stu. The other group had to run to each base then had to go back to their group. When we were on the court we had an obstacle course. The obstacle course was we had to throw the Golf ball into the Hula-Hoop. The next obstacle was that we had to hit the netball with the Hockey stick into the Hula-Hoop. The third course we had to hit the netball into a triangle target. I hit the netball and it was stuck. The final course was a fence with a targets at the bottom and the top. The hole at the bottom was easier because it was closer. The target at the top was hard because I kept hitting the ball over the target.
When we finished the course we shook hands with Coach Stu and we had to look him in the eye. When Coach Stu said "thank you" I said "Cheers". We then went back to the classroom.

Manainkalani

On Wednesday 26 March 2015 all the schools in Tamaki, teachers and visitors come to Pt England beach in buses to welcome travellers.


When we came we went to where we had to sit. It took a while for it to start. We saw other schools having their lunch but we didn’t have ours. Later on, it started we had to stand up.


We heard the shell horn and saw two wakas. We saw a motorboat filled with people. When all of the people got on the beach the leader said a prayer.


Later on that day all of the people got to speak. After a long while all of the schools got to high-five all of the visitors hands. Last of all we took a moment to relax.

Then all the schools went back to their work. I thought it was a very cool and a good lesson for us.

Anzac

On Saturday 25 1915 New Zealand and Australian soldiers got ready to fight in Gallipoli, Turkey. We have Anzac day to remember 1800 who died for our country.


Today we went to church, each of the classes had different poppies. When church were finished we went to where Mary stood. Fiapo and I got ready to read.


After we read we put the New Zealand flag over the white crosses. Later on that day we learned about ‘Simpson and the donkey.’


Simpson worked with the ambulance. They didn’t have ambulance back then so they used donkeys. Simpson was very kind to donkeys and so the donkeys were good to Simpson. Simpson used to put the injured soldiers on the donkeys to take the soldiers back.


When the New Zealand and Australian soldiers got to Anzac cove some of them knew they would die so they ran covering their faces so if they got shot they would know who died.


One day a soldier found a turtle in the trenches and kept it as a pet. When the soldier came back he saw the other soldiers eating the turtle.


The youngest Anzac was James Charles. He went to war when he was only fourteen. There was a nursing home with 1000-bed called ‘The poppy Inn.”


Sometimes when the turks are running to the Anzac they stepped on landmines and die. Some donkeys that go to Gallipoli comes from Greece.

Lots of soldiers write letters to their relatives or loved-ones. I think Anzac day is a great story of battle for our country.

My Wonderful Mum

My mum is a graceful loving woman because she does everything for our family. She cleans the house, she pays the bills, looks after Princeton and feeds the family.


Sometimes she needs a break. In her free time she likes to buy clothes, have a smoke, go to the gym and sometimes buy new furniture.


My mum does not like some things like the mess my brother makes, dogs that bite and animals like mice and rats. She doesn’t like beer or chips with lots of salt. She also doesn’t like the day because sometimes she needs to go to sleep or the sun because it is too hot. She also dislikes cats that bite and swear words.

My mum is really a funny person so she likes watching comedy movies with the family and wine. She likes funny things like cat clips and books about people’s lives because it makes her feel relaxed. She enjoys hanging out with her friends and having a drink of wine. My mum likes to have a good time.

Golf - First Tee

On Wednesday room 3 went to the Tennis Courts. First the boys had to line up. Coach gave the boys a bouncy ball. The coach gave the ball to Aaliyah, she had to share the ball with the rest of the girls. The boys ran and passed the ball if they dropped the ball they would have to do 2 push ups. When the boys finished it was our turn if we dropped the ball we had to do 3 push-ups, we dropped the ball twice. After both the boys and girls had a turn both the girls and boys got another turn. Coach said "Well done girls" because we didn't drop the ball once in our second turn.

In the next game we had to use a Hockey stick to hit the ball into the hoop, the hoop was down on the ground. Firstly we had to hit a tennis ball in to the hoop. The second one was harder because  we had hit a bigger ball into the hoop. The third and fourth  was the hardest because we had to hit a Sticky ball slowly so it would stick on the Velcro. The fourth was kind of like the third one but it was shaped differently. My friend Helena she got the ball into the hoop and she told Mr Gaffney. Mr Gaffney took a photo of Helena. I tried to do it and I did. I told my teacher and he also took a photo of me. Mr Gaffney said "well done". The last step I had to try 3 times. I was so happy when I got the fourth ball in. When we went back to class I said to Helena " That was fun".

Get Wise

On Monday 09 March a stranger came into Room 3 and introduced himself. His name was Evan from ASB bank. He had a big black bag with fake money. We were going to play three fun games. First we had to guess the values of the fake money. There was one lost note. Evan couldn't find it. He also taught us about Eftpos cards and Credit cards. An Eftpos card uses your money when a Credit card uses the bank's money. Next Evan got us to face him. So we did. After that Evan said he was going to travel as fast as a Cheetah back in time. We went to the Caveman time where Evan taught us how Cavemen used to get food without using money. Caveman use to try to kill a hairy Mammoth and try to get the tusks off and trade for some food like Fish, fresh meat, Tiger skin or even sharp knives. Eventually we got to Pirate times. Evan told us how the Pirates use to keep their money safe without using the back. Pirates bury the Gold on a deserted island. That was the end of our journey back in time, but the fun did not end. Evan told us to make three line in front of Jerome, Dianne and me. Evan gave us three some fake money and gave the people in  front of us cups. We had to give the money to the people in front of us and they had to give us back the cups. When Evan had to leave, we all had said "goodbye " and "thank you" and we went back to work. I thought we had a fun journey with Evan.

Golf

On Wednesday 4th March we were walking to the field to play Golf. First of all we got a warm welcome from coach Stu. Next we saw a jumping ladder on the field. We were supposed to jump one step at a time then keep doing that until the next persons turn. It was really fun after that we lined up into three lines. We were having a race. We had a tee. We put the Golf-ball on top of the Tee. We then had to run to the finish line and back without dropping the golf. Later on we practiced playing Golf. This was really difficult, but we got the hang of it. I think that everybody in room 3 enjoyed their time with coach Stu.
After a long time we played a game called golf/ baseball. We played like this: first the batter has to hit the Golf-ball, then they have to run. The batter then has to run to the hoops. The other people need to get the ball to coach Stu. If you're still running when the ball is with coach Stu you're out. When it was time to go, we all said goodbye to coach Stu and went back to Room 3.
I really enjoyed Golf because it was a good experience for us.

February 18

On Wednesday 18 February, Prince, Jillian, Antonio, my mum and I were staying at home.
When my aunt Tula came and dropped off  King, the Husky and Beast, the Ridge-back we were all happy.
Later on we went outside and played on the trampoline with the dogs. The dogs were really funny.
Afterwards my mum went to Grey Lynn to go church.
When mum was at Church we had the idea to go to the dog pound. At the dog pound we saw Bulldogs, German Shepherds, Chiwawas and Ridge-backs. Some of the dogs licked our toes. Next we were really hungry so we went to McDonald's. Antonio and I didn't eat meat because it was Ash Wednesday. Then we went to the park with the dogs. The dogs jumped into the cold water. I climbed up the cliff to get to the car.
After a while we arrived to Pak 'n Save to get my lunch. We got candy, Fizzy drinks, Chips, Fruit, Popcorn, Ham, Cheese and Fruit Sticks.
When we got home I ate so much, I went straight to bed.

My Holiday

On Saturday 20th of January Father Filipo, my mum, and I went to Sylvia Park to watch "Big Hero 6". We used father Filipo's  big blue car to get to Sylvia Park. When we got there, we asked the cashier for two medium sized popcorn and 3 movie tickets. I was really looking forward to watching the movie. I also enjoyed eating the popcorn, Yum! While we were watching, father Filipo was asleep. In the movie there was sadness, happiness and I also experienced anger.
The movie was about a young boy and his older brother who died in a fire. What makes him angry is when he finds  out that his brother's teacher saved himself rather than helping the kids. So the boy seeks out revenge and tries to save the world from the evil teacher, on the way big hero 6 helps him. When the movie had finished, my popcorn was also finished. I thought the movie was fantastic.
From the movie I learned that I have to put other people first then myself. When we got home I wished I could go movies again.
