the seeing hawk

For literacy we done a reading activity called The Seeing Hawk,it's about this boys uncle and when he was born a eagle flew around him and it was a good story.

Athletics day

Athletics day
at the end of the week on Friday there was Athletics,I was so excited because it was my first time doing athletics at pt England school.I knew that it would be very challenging but i was up for the task. And  suddenly mister Burt called us to the court then  we all   sat  down on the court  Where is mister Burt had a  siren in his hand  and he said Welcome To athletics.

The First event we done was discus,it was very difficult to do but i beat my high score. The people who got first,second and third got it as long as the limit. Even know that I didn't come first second or third but I was still proud of myself for doing my best.

One of the other events that we done was javelin,it was a little bit challenging but I done it any ways. I didn't even get 3 metres but it was awesome because that was my first time ever doing javelin,it looks very very very easy but it’s hard.  

One of my most favourite events was high jump,even know that high jump is usually hard for me but I gave it a try and it was awesome I because It was fun to just give it a try.

So that was my athletics day,And it was probably the most awesome athletics day that I had before.

Google cardboard

It was just a normal day,well at least I thought it was until a man came into the senior common room with Mr.Burt and the man had a big box with something inside of it. Then the man asked my friends and I if we could help him with the big box. So as the man was about to open the box I was wondering what was inside,and then ... it was heaps of small boxes?.

But then the man said "they are not just small boxes,they are called Google cardboard. Google cardboard,what's that ?he said "you will see,then ring ring ring goes the bell so we all sat down in the senior common room and Mrs.Tele'a said today we have something different called Google cardboard,I was so excited but the dumb thing is that we had to wait until just before lunch.

it was finally time the time to experience Google cardboard,and once I put it on it was so awesome because you could visit lots of places like inside the Colosseum or inside of a cage in the ocean filled with great whites and exploring the rain forests with snakes,prey mantis and one of my favourite places was one of the tallest sky scrapers in the whole world and loads more that was the highlight of my day spending time with Google cardboard.

A time with friends.

Amazing race

Yesterday I thought it was going to be a regular day but I was wrong,as I looked up at the time table I saw something  unexpected because it said fun time and I wondered what that meant until Mrs Tele’a said that we will find out after morning tea.

Ring there goes the bell for the end of morning tea,I was so excited to finally find out what fun time meant and then my friends and I ran back to class. Then Miss Ingram opened the door and said “go inside and get changed into our PE gear and then I knew that we were going to be doing something cool. So I got changed into my PE gear and came back to class and there was writing on the whiteboard,and it everybody’s names in teams so I scanned for my name and it was in the team called one A then suddenly Mrs Tele’a called everyone to the Street/senior common room.
After all of the year seven and eights were sitting down in the street Mrs Tele’a  said that we were going to do an amazing race I was so excited. My friend had a schedule looking thing that had all the events and teams,our team was doing cookie face so we went to by the netball courts and there was a whole stand and everything so,we sat down and Miss Flavel gave us each a cookie and said this is cookie face,I thought you had to eat the cookie the fastest but I was wrong “this game is when you have to put the cookie on your forehead and use all your facial  muscles and try get the cookie into your mouth”said Miss Flavel. I thought it was going to be super easy but I was  mistaken it was actually super hard I didn’t get the cookie in my mouth,but I nearly did it just slipped off the edge of my mouth. The first one to get the cookie in their mouth was Uli and he got it in on the first round,there was also about four other people that got the cookie in their mouth to and unfortunately I was not one of those people

After cookie face we done an activity called pea pipes that challenge was probably the easiest one of them all because all you had to do was get a straw and there was a plate of peas and you had to suck up the pea and walk across a quarter of the netball court and place the pea into the plate on the other side of the court. My team came second out of six teams so I was pretty proud of my team and I.

The next event was called Fear factor,It was the most disgusting event because you had to eat dry weetbix,eat a mixture of spaghetti,kiwi fruit and all kinds of other stuff but luckily we didn't have enough time to eat the mixture of foods but I did have to eat the dry weetbix it was all dried up and mushy in my mouth, horrible.

The last event that we had to do was called Brain busters and that was the most trickiest of them all,they were basically brain teasers.first there was a riddle and it said an ancient invention that people have used a lot and it allows people to see through walls,then I finally got and the answer was window.

So that was a cool and super fun amazing race yesterday I just hope that we can do it again some time later in the term because it was a good time to spend with friends and have fun.

My Holidays

My Holidays

Finally Term 3 was over and the school holidays has started. I was waiting for ages and at last i got there.
The first thing i done after school was go on a trip to Tree Adventures with my youth group called
Mana Rangatahi it was cool first we had put our equipment on we had to put on a harness with two big clips and an attachment which lead to a flying fox cable. Then after that the instructor gave us a safety tour about how not to fall off the trees and how to clip on to the safety wires,That part was boring until we started to climb the trees,It was awesome.

After that we signed up for a holiday program at Dunkirk. It was for two weeks but we had three trips,The first trip was to Mega Zone and as soon as we got in it was awesome.First we went straight to the Laser Tag. We had to pick our teams as soon as we got in,there was four teams there was green team,blue team,red team and yellow team. For the first round I was in blue team,it was cool but also very easy because there was mostly all little kids playing so they were easy to shoot but it was still challenging because they were small and they could sneak around.After Laser Tag we also done Mini Golf and The Laser Web.

Our second trip was to Parakai springs,I liked the water slide because I went really fast down the slide. Our last trip was to the Movies at Botany. At the movies we watched Pan,It was awesome because the movie was about how Peter Pan was made. I also had an awesome time at home to because in the first week we went up Mt Wellington and had hot chips and then after that we had a walk around the mountain and then went back home. On the second day we took a drive to the Basin and had lunch,then after we had Burger king for dinner.

So that was basically my holidays for term three,and that was an awesome holidays and I can’t wait for the next one.

 Back for term 4 and I had an amazing holidays. I had an action packed holidays I hope you enjoy my recount and leave a comment.

Explanation Needs Vs Wants

How Do you know the difference between Needs and Wants.

How do we spend money ?.Well it all depends on what we think we need and what we want.This doc will explain the differences between what a need is and what a want is.

What is a want?
A want is something that you really have the urge to buy but you don’t really need,you might just think it will make you look cool because everyone else has it.
these are some wants:you might want some flash as sport shoes or the newest fashion or even maybe  Mc Donalds.A want is something that you demand but really you can just wait until later to get what you want.

What is a need?.
A need is something that is necessary that you need in order to live. The most important thing to us is air to breathe we could of had all the stuff that we need but instead we spend money on what we are some of the needs water,insurance for your car if you have a car crash or health in case you have a heart attack,healthy food,shelter,medicine,and the list go’s on.There are lots of things that we need to live.

Needs or Wants

I reckon needs are way more important than wants because if you think about it without needs you wouldn't be alive!!!.This is because without water you would dehydrate,without food you would starve and without air you would suffocate so the needs were put here for a reason to live a good life.


this week for literacy we done inferring it was so cool you can find out more in this slide.
