Stay in touch on my blog because I may be doing some holiday blogging this holiday. I hope you all have enjoyed reading all my blog posts and what I have done this term. My Favorite highlight was probably hanging out with all my friends. We had lots of fun talking, playing around and all other things. Thank you to all the teachers who had to put up with all of the kids and I hope you all have a happy holiday!
This is my research about bird. What I reached about is about bird migrations pattern. We got split into groups of 4 or 3 and got to pick what we wanted to learn about. I chose birds because there are different types and species of bird and I wanted to learn more about them. The people in my group are: Zaeeda and Eva. We all did lots of reaching and had lots of fun together.
In Term 2 yr 5&6 extension got to do all crazy things. We did the 40 hour famine, went to the Auckland museum and did our first 2018 Paideia seminar. I had lots of fun doing the 40 hour famine because I had a great time hanging out with my friends. I loved going to the Auckland museum because I loved seeing all the culture items there. I also loved going to different exhibitions. In the Paideia seminar I had lots of fun, I loved expressing my confidence. I think I was way more confident this year and I think I have improved a lot from last year. One of my favorite highlight was actually doing the 40 hour famine. A lot of people turned up and got to help South Sudan. I raised $150 the most money I've ever raised. I have done a lot of research on how a bird flies I have also completed my Talanoa DLO. I had lots of fun this term

Walt:Write a story using interesting beginnings. Mr Goodwin sat down to order his first Deep Dish Pizza. Only the chef had something different in mind for Mr Goodwin’s pizza. Instead of the usual ingredients like cheese, tomato, and ham. The Chef instead used most of the spiciest chilies. First was ghost peppers, next was jalapenos and lastly was Tabasco sauce. Once the chef finished making Mr Goodwin's special pizza he went out of the kitchen and gave Mr Goodwin his pizza.While handing his pizza the chef said “why don’t you have a try” Mr Goodwin’s face turned bright red he felt like something went wrong but he didn’t want to be rude so he took his first bite and his face turned dark red!!He panicked “I need water, I need water!”
As Mr Goodwin went on and on and on he finally stopped and said “What did you put in my pizza?” The chef answers It was a surprise check the bottom of your pizza box. On the bottom of Mr Goodwin's pizza box it said “I used ghost peppers, jalapenos and Tabasco sauce as you base” Mr Goodwin got mad and said “I am never going to buy pizza from this store again I’m not even going to pay you but I am going to take this pizza and prank some of my roommates” He said with a grin on his face “maybe Mr Jacobsen” He didn’t want to prank Mr Burt because Mr Goodwin was scared that he would lose his job. Mr Goodwin left dramatically without paying. He drove to his hotel and started to search for Mr Jacobsen. At last he found Mr Jacobsen, but before Mr Goodwin told Mr Jacobsen take a bit he told Mr Burt about the prank, Mr Burt was on board and wanted to prank Mr Jacobsen too.
They both went to Mr Jacobsen and talked for a bit, then Mr Jacobsen took his first bite. But he knew something was coming so he tore off a piece really fast and he pretended that it wasn’t really spicy. Mr Goodwin and Mr Burt were confused at first but then they said "let me see your pizza," then He gave his pizza to Mr Goodwin, but Mr Burt and Mr Goodwin were even more confused. A while after Mr Goodwin took another bite and his face turned dark red again. He screamed and then went to get milk, a while after Mr Jacobsen laughed. Minutes later he got over himself and said “H...O….W is that not spicy. Mr Jacobsen laughed again and said “I didn’t even take a bite” as he went on and on. Finally Mr Goodwin learnt his lesson to never prank a teacher again. Although his mouth is still burning from all that spice.
In this piece of writing I have written a story about a Deep Dish Pizza. Room 7 had to use descriptive language and we also had to use interesting words. We had to write about Mr Goodwin in Chicago. Mr Goodwin gave us a beginning and room 7 got to chose a starter to start writing.
In this presentation room 7 had to find the perimeter of a sandwich. Room 7 also had to see if some of our teachers had to get a new sandwich bag to fit their sandwich in their bag. To do that we had to add up the perimeter of the sandwich.
The game Spab is a game on Cool Math Game, to win you would have to think critically about your strategy. There are letters from you keyboard involved to get up on to high places. Also the arrows from your keyboard help you to move, If you fall off the platform you have to restart the level. I liked that I had to think carefully about each moved I made.
How I could improve on the game Spab is to look at the keys that I am using. Sometimes I fell off the platform because I was pushing the wrong keys and so I had to restart the level.
I would definitely recommend this game because it is loads of fun and it helps you to think really hard of what moves you make. The one thing they should be able to improve on is to make sure each time you carry on with Spab you carry on with the same level.
In this task we got to play a game that we have never played before. We could only use the games on Cool math games.com. once we finished playing that game we had to review that game and said, what you liked about that game, what they could improve on and why/why not you would recommend that game.
Walt:Write a fun piece of writing. There we were getting ready to line up for assembly. Minutes later we walked into the the hall and sat down. Suddenly Mr Burt appeared and talked about the new korero for this week. This week Mr Somerville had the korero ready for the whole school to see. The korero was about Being sensible in the right time. Mr Somerville had an act to show. Seconds later he sat down on the stage stair with a microphone near him. All you could hear while sitting down was silence, until all the students laugh, and laugh, and laugh till they all run out of breath. Mr Somerville shouts at the top of his lungs, “WHO DONE THIS!!!” He says. All the students stop laughing and see that someone has put a whoopee cushion under his seat! They all laugh again and again and again. Nobody knows who put that whoopee cushion on the stage stair, and this case will be forever unsolved. TO BE CONTINUED……. Task description: In this task we had to write a fun piece fun writing. Each student from room 7 reading got to complete a form. We had to include our names, a character, a problem and a setting. Once we completed that form Mr Goodwin would get a email and will pick a topic for his students.

Do you know what Matariki is? Well Matariki is a celebration of a Maori new years, Each year people set off firework to celebrate like always. This year Pt England school split up into different groups to celebrate Matariki.
A couple of days before we selected what group we wanted to be in. We had a lot of options, one of the options that I really wanted to be in was movie making. Somehow I didn’t chose a group. On that Friday we did the normal thing and got sent off to our groups, because I didn’t choose a group I had to see Mr Somerville. I begged him to be in movie making with Mrs Langitupu and I got to be in that group.
Once I arrived at ICT witch was where we did movie making, Mrs Langitupu split all her students into groups for filming. I got split up into a group of 5 and we got to film all around the school and asked people what they did so far. First we went to MKR (My Kia Rules), we asked a bunch of questions to a couple of people. We went to most of the cooking groups first but then we decided to go to one of the sports group. We interviewed Mr Moran and He talked so much so we had to cut some of him out.
After filming we went to go have morning tea and there was a crazy people, after morning tea we went back to our groups. We did the same thing and went around the school, interviewing people. We asked the same simple questions and we got a lot of the same, silly, and crazy answers. The group that I really enjoyed interviewing was one of the arts and craft group. They were painting a background and you could have it any way you would like. Then they cut out some paper stars and decorated it with glitter, drawing and much more.
Overall I had a really fun day. I loved going around the school, interviewing people and filming. The best part was that I got to be in charge of the camera! Have you ever celebrated Matariki like this? If you have please leave a comment down below and share what you did!
Once in a land far far away there lived two girls and a mother. They don’t live to far away from their granny but it was halloween. Their village was filled with scary decorations. Even though their forest was filled with beautiful plants and cute animals you never know what could happen.The 2 girls were sisters. The first sister loved the color red, her name is Sophia, but the second sister love the color purple and he name is Isabella. Their mum would call them little red riding hood and little purple riding hood. Each day they would always wear a cape with there favorite color
One day it was halloween and their mother wanted to send them off with some food to their grandma’s house. So she called their grandma and it went straight to voicemail. “Oh Well the mother said. I'm going to have to do a voicemail” “Hi Granny the grand children will be coming over later today.” Little red riding hood and little purple riding hood got dressed into their halloween costumes and set off to granny's house. Before they both left their mum handed them a basket full of treats and said “don’t stop walking and never talk to any strangers.” Little red riding hood and little purple riding hood started traveling to their granny’s house.
The forest was filled with lovely flowers and even cute animals. Some of grannies best friends are up to something and no one knew what was happening. Granny’s friend the wood chopper distracted Sophia and Isabella and said to them both “Look, Look at the lovely flowers why don’t you pick some flowers” Little red riding hood replied “No sorry we don't have time, My mum said that we can’t talk to any strangers. We need to get to our granny’s house.” The wood chopper panicked and no one knew why he said “I’m sure your granny would love to have some beautiful flowers in her house” Sophia and Isabella both wondered “Hmm Maybe she would” So for a few minutes they went picking for some flowers for their granny. While picking flowers the wood chopper snuck out and ran off. Once Sophia and Isabella finished picking flowers they bundled them up and walked once more.Finally Sophia and Isabella arrive at granny’s house. It was all decorated for halloween. They both knocked on the door and said ”Granny we’ve come to deliver some food for you” “come in come in the door is open” Granny said
Sophia opened the door and saw granny lying there in her bed. Covering her face with her blanket“Hi Granny It’s nice to see you” Isabella said. Granny slowly uncovered her face and said ”it’s nice to see you too” Sophia jumped and said “Granny, what big ears you have” Granny said “the better to hear you” slowly uncovering her face. Sophia said with a soft voice“But granny what big eyes you have” “The Better to see you with” granny said still uncovering her face. Sophia and Isabella frigtenly said” “but granny what big teeth you have” Granny replied “of course the better the eat you with” Sophia and Isabella screamed!! While granny laughed taking off a wolf mask saying “Happy halloween” all her friends jump out saying “happy halloween to Isabella and Sophia. They were both confused and quite frightened. Granny said “Once i got the voicemail from your mother I've been setting up a little halloween gift for you both. Like the wood chopper he distracted you while I was getting ready. My house was already decorated and all I had to do is put my mask on”
As they went on with their party they had a awful lot of fun and the best halloween. They all had something to eat and Sophia's favorite was granny lemon cake. Isabella's favorite was the mini mince and cheese pies. All granny's friends danced along with granny and as they dances Sophia and Isabella started to walk back home. As they walked back home Sophia and Isabella talked. did you have fun?” Sophia said. Isabella replied “I had heaps of fun and it was probably the best halloween I’ve ever had” and they talked away they made it back home all safe and sound.

Just recently I read a book called the Bad Guys (attack of the Zittens) (Episode 4). The story is about a group of Animals trying to defeat a whole lot of zittens. Zittens are zombie kittens and are very dangerous. They are so cute and fluffy but as soon as you know it they will try to eat your face of. The bad guys are actually good guys and are the heroes of the story.
The Villans name is Mr Marmalade.
I really enjoyed this book but however it was a bit to easy for me. I enjoyed this book because it had creativity and is so fun to read. The characters are funny and silly to others. In some bit of this story it made me wonder what will happen next or what is he going to do.
One of my favorite character in the story is Chicho which I think is a shark. He is probably one of the most funniest character in the story!
You must be thinking did the bad guys Defeat the Zittens? Well they did There was an antidote which involved a lot of ingredients. At the end of the story Mr Marmalade congratulated the bad guys but had a little surprise. Which will tell you more information in the next episode (episode 5).
As you all know we have just had 2 weeks of holiday and in this presentation room 7 had to write a holiday narrative. We had to base it on one of our favorite holiday highlight.

If you guys remembered I am an ambassador. We have been doing a great job, presenting to visitor that have been coming to our school. You should know that being an ambassador isn't easy. Sometimes we have to be at school around that 8.30 mark ready to get in our uniform. After we get into our uniform we go to the Tusitala and have a little practice before all the visitors arrive. Sometime we even go to different university. The only university that we have been to this year is M.I.T (Manukau Institute of Technology). Each time we present to our visitors Mr Somerville looks at how well we present or remember our lines and by the next day he chooses a player of the day. When we present to our visitors we present to many people from different country's. We've had visitors from the United States and even from Canada.
Here are some photos of the ambassadors presenting to some of our visitors!!
In this presentation room 7 had to try our best to draw a symmetrical shape on each slide. On each slide there is a different shape to draw and to work on. In each slide there is a half of a shape and we had to figure out how to make it look the same.
In this presentation we had to figure out how many sides does some shapes have. In one of the slides we had to give the correct shape with the correct name. We also had to match shapes with how many sides it has. for example: A hexagon has 7 side so we had to match the shape and the number up together.
This is me just having free time to myself and I decided to use 8-bit art. Room 7 sometimes uses this site for free time is well. This site is a drawing site and is used to draw pixelated pictures. I also decided to use screen castify to record me drawing my picture. It took me a while to get it perfect and the video is a bit long so you might want some music to entertain you.
Walt: write an interesting pieceof descriptive writing.
