Writing Sample

On the first day of term 3 marching to the hall . Watching  and cheering for team ones performance upon the stage, first we saw Mr liufau standing up with a microphone talking about fairy Tales and after that  on the screen I saw  who am I and I saw different kind of fairy characters.

listening to team two’s music and dance moves on the screen was but the one that i like best was out of all of them was the jabbawockeez and 6 boys. Everyone has been laughing  at mrs she, glaze and blake but I think mrs she can’t do any hip hop dance because she might fail.

Mr Barks movie was very funny because Mr barks does not have nice legs but everyone thinks that is not good No would like his leg just because of the hair that he has and the costumes that was crack up but he’s not pretty at all.

Three little wolves & the big bad pig

Once upon a time there lived the three little wolves. They lived with their mother and father their names were Jorja and Shayne. Their children were growing up and were getting annoying so their parents told them to find their own houses. They packed up their belongings and set off to live in the woods.

While they were walking through the woods they found straws, sticks and bricks. They used it to make their own houses. The first little wolf Mosa was lazy and wanted to go and play so he builds his house out of straw. The second little wolf Sonny wasn't as lazy as he built his out of sticks. The third little wolf Anthony was the smartest and he was the hard worker he builds his house out of bricks.

Then they heard a stomping noise from out in the woods. They went outside to see what was out there. They saw the one big pig his name was Kori-lee. He tried to eat them so the three little wolves were moaning about what they should do to escape the one big pig. They shut their doors and talked about it. The big pig begins attacking their houses, first he attacks Mosa house first by blowing it down. Then the first little wolf Mosa runs to the second little wolves house. So the pig got angry because he was hungry.

He then Huffs and puffs and blows down Sonny’s house, so they run hard out to the third little wolf’s house which was Anthony’s house. The pig follows and also attacks the last house. He huffs and puffs but he fails to blow. Then he went up to the top of the chimney and climbed down and he sees them. They put the pot of boiling water under the chimney and lit up the fire. The pig falls into the pot and gets cooked for dinner. They live happily ever after without the big pig because he’s dead.

Supersmart sandwich challenge

Fun run

Last week the seniors had to run around the reserve beside our school. Why? you may ask. There is a fun run coming up this term, people will be sponsoring us to raise money for the year 8 camp next term.

So we a run a 2K run, to us that means that we do 2 laps around the whole Pt England reserve and it is tiring, some seniors don’t like running because the grass is wet and muddy.

Before running we needed to be wearing shorts so our uniforms did not get dirty because all seniors splash into the puddles. They also take their shoes off when they get back to class.

At the beginning of the run Lorenzo tripped me over and then I fell onto the ground. My shorts we muddy the rest of the day because I didn't have a change of clothes.

I’ve been practicing drumming because I like it and it’s my first time playing them. I asked my dad what the different drums were called, he only told me two of them, they were the ones with one eye and one with two eyes. The two eyes were called the base ‘the fat drum’ in english.

What we do first to start the Drumming session is that we say the karakia because that’s what my uncle says to every drummer. We practice drumming in room 24 because my uncle is here to teach us some lessons so we know what to play and how it goes. The Tutors that we practice with are my uncles and they say not to play with them when they’re talking, I’m doing this because I want to show off to my family and I want to make them proud of me.

It’s really fun playing cook island drums but not easy as you might think, It is the hardest drum it’s the hardest drum that I’ve ever played.

Picking Harakeke (flax)

Kia ora, can you guess what Room 19 have been up to last week?  We walked to Omaru creek to pick harakeke (flax).  

When we first got there Ms Tito had to tell us what the rules were to do with harakeke. The most important thing is that we don't cut the matua, whaea and pepi and there were some accidents that happen about cutting flax of which one we cut . Ms Tito said not to chop them at night because they might accidentally chop the wrong one.

We walked back with our flax that we chopped and when we got back to school we had to walk into the streets and we had to sit in a circle so everyone can fit we then had to have a ruler each and so we started to weave our own harakeke and I did not have one so Lorenzo keni because he was listening and not participating.

Tuakana/Teina (Brother or Sister)

This term Room 19 is learning about Tuakana/ Teina. Tuakana means an older brother or sister, and teina means younger brother or sister. Every Tuesday we all walk over to the library to read with our teina brothers and sisters.

When we going to the library we stay with the teina that we have each week but some have been changed. When I wasn't here on Tuesday my teina, I had to be with Nanthanial from our class for last week.

Our teina come from Room 9, they are a part of our family at Pt England school that we read to. We read to them so we can practise the 3'P's and they are Partnership, Participation and Protection. Working with our teina helps to improve their reading and our leadership skills.

Learning about Honesty

What is Honesty? This year Pt England School is learning to be “Better Together”- “Kia pai te kotahi”. In Room 19 we have been studying love, compassion, honesty and tolerance. Ms Tito (our teacher) gave us a task to select one of these words to write a definition and present an example of what it means to our class. The reason we are learning about these things are to help us understand ourselves and others so we can be a better person today and in the future.
I chose the word honesty to study about. here is my definition and example of what it looks like.
