I love school but today is still a holiday. At the end of term 2 I was feeling down that school was over on that day but I was still happy that I got to spend time with my family in the holidays. In the past few days I had a lot of fun with my family but it's time to go back to school and learn different things. I'm super excited to go back to school and learn more. I am also excited to see Miss West my teacher and tell her all the amazing things I did during the holidays. But I am mostly excited to see all of my friends. See you at school!!
It's time for a new term.

They were turning 2 years old. we were planing on having a big feed with our families. in the morning we went shopping for the big feed we also got some nice clothes for the twins to wear. after shopping around we did the decorations and started cooking. After all of the food that we made we cleaned the house and waited till people turned up. we waited and waited but suddenly we hear bang bang bang! it was someone knocking on the door I opened the door and my nana and papa shouted happy birthday!! we said thank you and waited some more again we waited and waited then it got boring so I went out side to play we had so much fun more people turned up and it got packed. Anyways my dad told us to settle down and to keep the noise down. We said the prayer and started eating. The food was yum!! It was a big day for us and the twins happy birthday faith and gene.

On Tuesday we had lots of fun, we did lots of thing but most of the things were playing outside. I woke up in the morning and went in the lounge I watched TV and got my baby sisters out from their room. I asked my mum "can I take Faith and Gene outside to have some fun" she replied "not yet it's cold outside just wait for a little bit longer" I answered "OK" then went to watch TV more. 12:00 came around and got sunnier so I asked again and luckily she said yes so I took Faith and Gene out side and had some fun. My little sister Eva and my little cousin Harmony were jumping on the trampoline while I was with my other 2 sister drawing on the ground with chalk. My little baby cousin Villy was relaxing with my big brother Ajani. We had so much fun. once we got inside we were to lazy from all of that sunshine outside.

Task description: We learnt how to be data detectives. We had to sort the data analyse it and then write an article about it. My article that I chose was about witch sports kids like to play most.
Task description: we learnt how to be data detectives. We had to sort the data analyse it and then write an article about it. My article that I chose was about who liked artistic activity.
Some animals woke up at 6:00am just to go on a journey. These animals names are Guppy the pug, Lizzy the goat and Ben the bee. They went for a journey to the city, they were going to go on an animal plane ride to Cook Island. They went through traffic jam just to get to the airport. Their flight was at 8:00 am so they had enough time to get to the airport, so they stopped for lunch. For lunch they had Mcdonalds.
After lunch the animals made their way to the animal airport. Once they were at the airport they went to their plane and took off. Half way through the plane ride Logan and Nick the pilot said “we're going down, everyone put on you lifejackets” the plane broke down and smash into the deep ocean.
All the animal swam up and were safe. They needed to find a house to live and stay in so they tried using the broken plane parts to help them float on the water, they also tried to find small part to use as a oar. “Yay” shouted the animals “we are safe we also found things that would float” said Guppy. They started to row north and then south they didn’t know where they were going. Then nick had an idea, he tried navigating by using the clouds. He said to everybody “did you know if you look at the bottom of the clouds you could see a reflect of green if land is near”
After nick's little talk to the animals they started to look at all of the clouds then Lizzy found one cloud that had green at the bottom of it. Suddenly Lizzy shouted “there I see one” pointing to one of the clouds, “good job” said ben, all the animals shouted horay and started rowing west. Day after day night after night they found their way to land.
“At last” cried the animals “we made it” said Nick “good job to all” said logan, “come on now, let's go” said guppy so they walked off and traveled around to find somewhere to stay in. bang bang bang! Knocked logan, kiarana said the owner of the house that logan knocked on. “What did he say” said ben “He said hi” said Guppy “what” answer Ben “he said hi” shouted Guppy again “oh sorry” Ben said to Guppy. Logan said “hello can you look after these animals they are very well taught and behaved”, “ok but you are going to be telling me what they need everyday and night” said the man, nick said “they need water pet food and meat”, “ok” answered the man “by the way” he said “yes” said the pilots “my name is riro” “ok said logan bye now see you later this is your new home for now” “bye we are going to miss you” cried the animals. “I’m never going to forget you two” cried the animal again
And that was the end of my narrative.

Year 5 & 6 put on a production called Back in da Day. It was a great success. My favourite part of the production was dancing to the twist especially dancing with my greatest friends. I had two roles which were really fun. I never thought that I could perform in front of the whole school which I did. I felt really nervous I thought I couldn’t do it but I got up took a deep breath and went on stage. I think I need to work on my pronunciation and to speak slower. This was my first ever production and loved it so much. This was the best production I think Pt England has ever done. Just wanted to say thank-you to Mrs Lagitupu and Mrs Sinclair.

You know what it was like back in the day, right? Well, do you know enough about sailing? Sailing is one of the known hobbies that you would find Maori doing. So this is what I will be talking about. Did you know when Maori arrived in Aotearoa, they only had materials that would keep them alive. One of the common materials that Maori and Islanders use is wood. Wood is very useful, if making a boat it would be possible for water to stay out of the boat if using wood. You must be thinking how sailing has changed over time? Well now our boats are faster because they have engines. Back then they only had oars and waka. A waka is a wooden boat. It uses wind to get through water and also uses oars.

NO MISS WEST HAS VANISHED!!
Today Miss West has called in sick (NOT). Miss West is actually on a plane flying to Australia, she is so sick of teaching us 24\7. Anyways she’s probably going to see some koala bears.
After that she’s going to do some other fun things like…. Going on a cruise, meeting celebrities, going to the movies, going shopping with her friends and having the best day of her life (well, maybe not that much things but she is still probably having the best day of her life).
THAT’S NOT FAIR, ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS WORK WORK WORK AND WORK!! (if Miss West wasn’t my teacher i’ll probably tell Mr Burt what she has been doing!) she’s probably laughing at us because we’ve been having to do work ALL DAY!!!! JOKES ON YOU WE ARE ACTUALLY DOING FUN STUFF (MAYBE).
SO HAS THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED TO MISS WEST TO BE CONTINUED..........

We are designing a land boat for the purpose of racing other students and to help us learn more of other technology. Room 10 is designing a land boat. We will be working in our reading groups.
Me and my friend Chance are thinking of what useful things we could use for our land boats. These are some of our ideas: caps from water bottles for the wheels and to make it move, water bottles for the body and so the land boat won’t get wet and straws help the land boat move.
When we finish making our land boats we will be racing our boats across the concrete near our class. It is going to be lots FUN!!
Starting the day off was totally hilarious!!
Coming into school ready to do some learning, Miss West said that “we are going to do something exciting like a challenge” The class shouted in joy. Miss West showed us what we were going to do. she placed her hand on her shoulder, also placed a counter on her elbow and flicked it up in the air. She said use 1 hand to catch the counter when you flick it up in the air. So after Miss west stopped talking she demanded the class to form a circle outside.
The class went outside to form a circle. I walked outside and smelt the fresh air, I heard the birds tweeting happily and could see people from Pt England trying to do their work while we were playing outside. Miss west talked through the instructions one more time and we were off. We started off with one counter. If we flipped the counter in the air and caught the counter, we had to place another counter on top of the first one that we had.

What is that?…….
Coming into class the 2nd bell rang so we read our books from the library for 15 minutes. Then Miss called us to the mat and said “we will be doing something fun” we all shouted in joy!! Miss West told us what we will be doing which was going to be describing a product that has been invented, Miss West said just to be creative about the product (shoes). The shoes shine and shimmer. I think the shoes are made out of rubber, carbon fiber on the outside and cotton on the inside of the shoes. I think it will be comfortable to wear.
I think the shoes help people not to trip over themselves. I also think the shoes are used for bouncing up and down just for fun. How it work is you just jump like you're on a trampoline and if you trip, the shoes will repeat the same thing but it will be in reverse mode and it will help you stand up.
Time for the truth…….
The product is actually controlled by your smart phone. It counts up how many steps you take. It has self lacing laces which means it will tighten your shoes and will untighten your shoes for you. It heats up your shoes when you feet are feeling cold. It knows how old you are, how tall you are and how much your body weighs. This product is pretty cool
I think this product is a really cool thing that has been invented. It is also very interesting. I think my ideas were really cool maybe the inventors of this product should take some advice from me and make trampoline shoes. This would be very cool to bye but why spend you money on this product when you could do something like that on your phone but it is something very interesting.
Here is a website of what some other things the shoes can do.

Now that’s thinking!! Excitingly coming to school I walk into the breeze and waited for my friends. Then I saw 2 of my friends (Eden and Levonah) we hugged and said what we’ve been up to in the holidays. Once we hugged we went looking for our other two friends (Pisi and Chance).
Anyways we realised we should have hid from our friends so it would be a surprise. So we went into Miss King’s class to say hi. Then we saw Chance so we went behind the whiteboard to hide, but unfortunately she FOUND US!! All we needed to do was to hide from Pisi but she was walking around the school just like us and she spotted us is well (no!!!). So we walked around the school and finally the bell rang so we ran to class and got ready to go to immersion assembly.
Immersion assembly is when a beginning of a term is coming, also when we get to see what we will be learning about for the brand new term!! We also watch a little film that our team teachers made in the holidays. They make a movie about what we will be learning about for the rest of the term.
For this TERM which is term 2 we are going to be learning about, how technology has changed in the past and how it has changed from now. This term is going to be really FUN!!!

Yay, today we had a Easter egg HUNT!!
Yes I know it’s not Easter but we celebrated early. Today we had a big feast to celebrate Easter. If you wanted to know why we celebrate Easter check out my Easter presentation. Anyways talking about our big feast my Nanee and Pops came over followed by my 2 auntys 3 of my cousins and my uncle. I’ll get to the part where we had our Easter egg hunt but first I'll explain what happened.
First we waited for my aunty Hine to turn up, then a few moments later she walked through the door. After, mum told us to go upstairs and wait for my mum and dad to hide the Easter eggs and also wait for my cousin Peni to arrive. Moments later Peni had arrived then my Nanee and Pops had arrived after. So mum called us down to grab a plastic bag to start searching.
Now was the fun part, actually looking for the Easter eggs but we had some rules. 1. No pushing 2. No running and 3. You were only allowed to have 10 each. Then my mum shouted “3 2 1” and the search was on. The first place I looked was in my sisters room under her bed but unfortunately there was nothing. So I had a look on her window sill and 2 chocolate eggs fell out. I kept looking until I had 10.
After the hunt we had to wait for a while to have some food. Maybe 15-20 minuts dad called us to eat. These are some of the foods that we ate potato salad, steak, sausages and Lu. Lu is like some greens some meat followed by some coconut cream ( it’s really nice you should try it one day). Moments after dinner we had dessert which was trifle and ice cream. my mum's trifle is the best
Once we had finished our food my mum said that we were allowed to play hide and seek so we got ready for the game. After the game we finish the day off with a lovely and happy day. Thank-you Mum, Dad, Nanee Pops, aunties and uncle for making this wonderful day happen.
Happy early Easter everyoneStay tuned for more holiday blog posts.

Wow, on Wednesday lots of people went to Te Oro!!
Starting the morning off very excitingly we got our chrome book out and did our work for a little amount of time. Then all of a sudden we hear Miss West call us to the mat. So the class put their chrome books away and listened to Miss west. Miss west said that she would split the people who was not coming to Te Oro in a different class. As soon as she split the class we sat down at the porch to have morning tea.
Once we had our morning tea we went over to the hall and waited for the bus. Then the bus arrived (finally) so we hopped on and drove over to Te Oro. Inside Te Oro was These schools Somerville School, Tamaki Primary, Pt England, St Piers, Tamaki college, Glenbrae and more.
First we had a look at the top part of Te Oro. While we were going up the I saw these words going up the stairs, follow the dragon flies. I thought that was really cool and also thought that it was a project from the of the schools. Anyways we went upstairs and had a look at Somerville schools project. The Somerville schools project was about pests they had some objects what they could kill them with.
My favourite project was the St Piers project because it had some kind of mystery twist in it, they also explain how they got the pieces of bite marks on a piece of cardboard they also had pictures of what the bite might be like possums, rats and all kinds of bites.
After all that looking around we went back to the bus. After we got into class we played a very quit game. I LOVED IT SO MUCH!
Today is the day when all of a sudden comes to an end (NOOOOOO). Today was the last day of school. I will miss having fun with my friend and teachers, but that doesn't mean I will have fun next term. Stay updated for any holiday events.
I cant wait until next term but first im going to have a little fun.
See you next term

This is our researching about local children's perspective.
We researched what types of pollution there are and what kinds of pollution would make us children sick.
This is our piadeia practice task.
We got a piece of paper from Miss Langituipu.
On the 3 slide that page is what our paper looked like.
We had to rate why people should help that problem.
6 is what we should not help because its not a big of a deal
but 1 would be something that we would have to fix.

WOW WHAT AN AMAZING GAME!
This is our morning.
Starting the morning very silently, all of a sudden we hear Miss West. Miss West says that “we are going to play a game called untie the human knot” so she called us to the mat and we got straight into the game. Wait, I thought to myself. What is the human knot? Is it when we try to tie our arms together? Anyway, we went onto the mat and formed a circle.
Once we formed a circle Miss West put us in 3 groups. My number was 1. Once we were into our groups Miss West told us the instructions. These were the instructions. First put your right arm in the air and grab another person's arm. Once you do that you do the same with your left arm. Miss West shouts 1 2 3 then you try to untie the human knot without letting go of anyone's hand or forming into 2 groups.
Then she shouts “1 2 3” and all you could hear was laughter. I tried to say to Pisi to get under my arm but it was to hard. I couldn't even hear myself talking. We were the last ones who finished untying the human knot but we were in 2 groups! I was so mad at my teammates but we got another round and we kind of got the hang of it. I loved playing the human knot it was so much fun.

Ten years ago the world was always clean, but ten years after someone was polluting the earth and wasn’t looking after our environment. One day that person went over to the omaru creek and polluted the creek with detergent, paint and oil. Whenever she went somewhere everyone tried to catch her and her name, but only one person knew her name. It was her sister and the person who always pollutes is Lindy. The sisters name was Linzy and all this time Linzy keep Lindy's name a secret.
Sometime around the afternoon one day Lindy went to pollute the creek. While she was polluting the creek she heard a voice. That voice said “hey you look down” so Lindy looked down and saw a talking fish named kendal. The fish said “you better stop polluting this creek your killing all the fish” Lindy didn’t listen, but kendal was still talking he said that “you will regret this one day” but Lindy was too busy polluting.
Linzy came around and saw all the fish dead she said “this has gone too far” so she went home and had a little chat with her sister. Linzy said please stop polluting the creeks, Lindy said “why” her sister replied “because you killing all the fish, how would you feel if we didn’t have any food to eat but the fish that you killed” Lindy also replied “you're right I should stop” so she stopped polluting.
The next day the world was happy and clean. Linzy was so happy for Lindy to give up polluting. It felt good to be in a happy clean world.

This is a story about Maui and the giant fish. Maui wanted to get some fish to eat so he went out to sea and looked for the perfect spot to fish. Once he found his spot he threw his hook while holding onto the rope in the water. He waited and waited until he felt the hook pulling him so he pulled and pulled, capturing a giant fish which turned into New Zealand. It links because if we didn’t have enough food we would have to share the food out equally. If we didn’t have enough food to eat we would probably get really sick. If we also didn’t look after our plants the plants would die and we wouldn't be alive.
WOW!!! Last week on Wednesday (the first day of camp). I was so excited to get straight into the activities. Anyways, team 4 went camping on school grounds, and we had lots of activities. Some of the activities were kayaking, youthtown, get lost killerzone, roller skating, basketball and skating in the hall. We also had lots of songs especially at the pools.
My highlight was the Moana a Nui Kiwa Pools. We went to the Moana a Nui Kiwa pools on Friday which was the last day of camp. At the pools there were 2 pools outside. Outside there was also a bombing pool, a waterslide and a water park. I liked the water park best. My other highlight was killer zone with Mr Jacobson. In killer zone it was like a obstacle course but it was also all about speed. When we went to killer zone we played the chiefs. The chiefs leaders were Chastyti and Tupuia. I was in the group Sheriffs. The team leaders were Kurtus and Naomi. It was a pretty close game. I also loved all the fun in the hall like the roller skating and the basketball.
I recommend all the kids should come to this camp because it is really fun and you will have a great time. Not only that but you get to spend time with your friends. It a great time just to hang at school and have fun.
I would like to thank my Dad for staying overnight and making sure that everyone was ok. I would also like to thank helpers for looking after us and sorting out games and fun activities, Mr J for setting up kiler zone and get lost, Mr S for making this awesome camp happen, and Mr Burt for sorting kayaking and making this camp happen. Thank you also to the team leaders for keeping this an awesome camp.

Pt England School
Pt England School
Dear Mr Burt,
This term room 10 have been learning about native trees/bush. We have been wanting to plant some native trees or bushes. I have been wondering if we could plant some harakeke and the pohutukawa tree. We have some growing on the reserve and would want some on our school grounds. I want to plant the harakeke bush because I want to learn to weave. Also the harakeke bush grows really well in gardens and wet places including near the creek. The pohutukawa tree is beautiful and is one of the most famous trees in NZ. The pohutukawa tree will grow well in well drained soil. I think we need to build a water system so the soil has lots of water and will help the pohutukawa tree grow well.
We would want to do this at the end of term 1.
Here are some photos of where we would like to plant some.
These are some of the websites that help me think of ideas.
