Day 1: The legend of New Zealand

Week 1: In the beginning
Day 1: The legend of New Zealand.

#Fact 1: As some people should know the Maori name for New Zealand is Aotearoa. In English Aotearoa means  the land of the long white cloud. It was quite interesting that, that is what Aotearoa means. I don’t exactly know  why we decided to have Aotearoa as our Maori name but when I do I will tell you about it.
#Fact 2: Did you know that there are no snakes is New Zealand? I was surprised when I heard there were no snakes in New Zealand. When I was younger I used to be afraid of snakes so I was so relieved when I heard there were no in New Zealand.

#Fact 3: Did you know to become a New Zealand citizen, you have to swear an oath of loyalty to Queen Elizabeth. I wonder how scary this would be to do it in front of the queen.

The start of the HOLIDAYS!

So today was the last day of school. I was so sad as I had to watch my friend cry for the last time at school. I am hoping she has a good life at her new school in intermediate. I have just received my Chromebook today and I am so excited to do some holiday blooding. I am also look forward to people all over the world looking at my special holiday blog posts. I am super excited for Christmas and hanging out with my family. I would like to say as part of my last day as a year 6, Thank you to all the teachers who put learning into our life and fun too. Thank you for teaching us and beveling us. I just want you to know that, we did work our hardest and pushed to reach our limits and goal. We hope you have had a blow away year with us!

See you next year!

2018 reflection (EXT)

This term has been a great term. We got to go to camp Bentzon, hangout with my friends and more. one of my favorite things we did this term was being in extension. We got to use 3D pens and do lots of other fun things.

Term 2 we had an amazing term with lots of amazing facts. We went for a trip to the museum and did our talanoa projects. At the museum we got to see lots of ancient artifacts. We had so much touching and feeling the ancient artifacts. We also had so much fun making our Talanoa DLO's because we got to talk about what we learnt.

Term 3 was all about moving your body and about eating healthy food. We had awesome groups to work with and all got good marks. We also went to Gravity. We went to Gravity because our theme was move your body and so we went somewhere fun and somewhere, where we could get fit.

Today we had a shared lunch, for the year 5 and 6 celebration. We came together and celebrated the work we have done all term. We also did secret Santa. I got Amira but she wasn't here and so I had nothing to give her. The food was amazing and was super yummy. We had lot of doughnuts and lots of yummy chips and drinks. For secret Santa I received a slime kit from Austin. I loved my present and I hope everyone has a great and safe Christmas.







Overall I had a wonderfull year!

Camp Concern (Team Mansion)

This is my team item from camp.


We worked very hard on our camp item. Mansion came up with lots of ideas.  We wanted to add more but by the time we could have it was the last day to figure out what we were doing. I had lots of fun dancing with my friends. Thank you to Miss Tia and Egen for helping us come up with a dance. And also for taking Team MANSION!

Kawau island reflection

Mansion is the BEST! Us year sixes just came back from Camp Bentzon on Kawau island. It was the best
camp I have even gone on.


As we arrive at Camp Bentzon we looked out the water and saw a beautiful blue sea. We went up the front
of the ferry and listened as we waited for the boys to start off their Haka. Peter and Erin were waiting up
the front of the wharf, watching us as we nervously arrived at Camp Bentzon on Kawau  island. We
walked out of the ferry and dropped off our day bags at the front of the camp, we then walked back and
forwards delivering our weekly bags and food off at the front of the deck.

After a long time we then assembled next to the volleyball court where we all placed our day bags. We had
a bit of a talk and in the next minute we were all walking up the dreadful killer hill. I started very strong but all of a
sudden I started to breath quit heavily. We walked halfway round, then sat and ate our morning tea. We
walked some more and found our way on the other side of the hill, I did fall quit a lot but that only happen
while I was walking up the hill.


The next day after we arrived we started our rotations, but started our morning off with a long fitness course
up killer hill. The first activity Mansion B did was kayaking, Erin took that activity. We arrived at the
household of the kayaks and carried them out to the sea in pairs of two. We then made our way throughout
the big blue sea. Even from far away we could see Bentzon A and their sail boats. I did fall out of my boat
but that's only because we were playing a game. I only got to see one stingray, but the others got to see
about 2 or 3.


Our last rotation of the day was sailing. There were 3 people who could go single, Isaiah and Paschal were
the first to stick their hand up but no one else wanted to go, so I slowly put my hand up, all of a sudden
Peter jumped and instantly asked what my name is. I then told him and then became the demonstrator.
Straight after I got sent off my way. Not much wind that day and so I did take a while to move from one
spot to another. I loved sailing, I was the best thing I have ever experienced. There is about one phrase I will
probably always remember which is “Tiller to the sail.”


Thursday was our last day for normal rotations. Our first rotation was the confidence course known as the
concourse. Mr J gave us one task, to make sure all our fear was in our head and to hug your mama. We
climbed up nets and at the top we had to come back to the front. We hugged the pole like we were hugging
our mama. Halfway through it started raining. We were just about to climb through tires. Once it stopped
raining we skipped one course and moved onto the next one. It was lots of fun, but I wish we could have
done more courses.


Last of all we finished the day off with abseiling. We were all confused but we did find out what abseiling is.
We all thought it had something to do with water, but it was really all about climbing a big long wall. I was
terrified. Paschal was busting to go first, but all of a sudden he backed out. I was supposed to go second but
because Paschal backed out I had to go first. I really didn’t want to go but I was already hooked in, so there
was no turning back. I started climbing and all I could hear was my heart pounding and people cheering me
on. As soon as I reached the top I looked down, then looked back up. “I don’t want to go down” I said to
myself, then I realized this was going to be the last time I did abseiling for a while so I made my way down
slowly and terrified. I reached the floor and I was so happy.


We had our camp concert on Thursday. Each day at camp we practiced and practiced until we got our
dances perfect. Team Mansion used 3 songs. Who run the world? (girls!), I want it that way and all over.
We had a pretty good dance, lots of levels because the judges were looking for that. Concert night is also
known as prize giving. During prize giving I got best girl sailor. For our item we came second place. We
were tempting to come first.


Friday was our last day at Camp Bentzon. Friday was known as sports day at camp. We got to swim, play
volleyball, touch and play bush baseball. The first activity we did was swimming. I was hoping to swim last
but we ended up swimming first. We usually could jump of the wharf but because it was the last day we
just jumped off the pontoon. To get to the pontoon we had to swim there. Some people needed life jackets
because it was deep. I didn’t need one because I am a good swimmer. When we did our activities we got to
have another team with us usually playing against them.


The ending game we play was bush baseball. It was called bush baseball because we were playing baseball
in the bushes. We were playing against Bentzon A. Some of the bases were hidden but luckily people had
to stand by them. The score was 21-42 to Bentzon A, I think. We had so much fun even though we did
lose all our games.


My highlight of camp probably had to be every time we were in the water. I love being in water. I wish we
could have swam all day! I loved going swimming, kayaking, sailing, jumping off the pontoon and
jumping off the wharf.


I would like to say a big thank you to all the parent that turned up to camp and help us with our activities.
Thank you to Peter and Erin for doing this camp every year for the year sixes. I would also like to thank
my parents for providing the money for me to come to camp. One more thank you to all the teachers that
made this camp possible.

Overall this camp has been my favorite so far. Lovely place, amazing games, beautiful water and wonderful
weather. I would love to go back to Kawau island anytime soon.

The Haunted Mansion

Walt: Write a story using a story starter.

“I’m hoping to bring my diary along with me, wait what's that noise.” Creeping through the bedroom a big scary “ohh it just you.” “MUM!, EVA GET OUT OF MY ROOM!”. I’m getting ready for camp and Eva just walked in with a white sheet over her head, don’t judge, I don’t really believe in ghost. Do you?


We got off the bus, and got into a long squiggly line, passing our bags and putting them onto the ferry.
We all hopped on the ferry. Looking out the window we see dolphins jumping out of the water and whales
blowing water out of their blow horn! “Turns out, mum let me take my diary” “Ohh I don’t feel to good, i’m
going to go and sit down.” Minutes later we arrive at kawau island. STOP, LOOK AND LISTEN” Mr
Somerville called “everyone needs to help get all the bags out of the fairy and after we will be going up
killer hill” All the kids sighed. Passing the bags along we place them all on the floor and start to find our
way up killer hill. Huffing and puffing we all take our time up the hill. Some kids did trip and fall then they
had to come up killer hill all over again. Finally we finish walking up the dreadful hill and find our way to
our cabins.


Dear Diary,
We have just dropped off our bag in our cabins. I’m in a room with Pisirian, Marika, Levonah, and Eden. Later tonight  we are all thinking of sneaking into that huge mansion next door, we’ll all probably just have a look around. Let me go check with them. They have all agreed on one thing, we are going to the mansion 9:00pm straight see you then. So it’s currently 7:00pm and we just finished dinner. We are all just about to go and play spotlight, wish me luck. Just finished our game and of course team mansion won. Getting ready for bed now (maybe). We are putting some warm clothes on and we are just about to leave.”


We all crept out of our cabin and almost got caught. On the lookout was Mr Goodwin, although he did l
look like he was asleep. He must be sleep walking. We arrive at the mansion and we tried to open the
door but its locked. We went through the back door. Who was stupid enough to leave the back door
open *flash back* Mrs Parrant used that door last. *back to reality* We went through the back door and
had a walk around, later we found things rattling and moving on the spot. We saw the lights flickering on
and off and later even saw doors opening and shutting. “Leave, you must leave” all of a sudden we got
softly pushed out of the door. We ran away and decided to never go back in there again.


When we got back to school Mr Somerville called the 5 girls who were stupid enough to sneak out and go
into the mansion. He showed us a video tape and it showed us sneaking around the mansion. Later after
the video he said  “We played you.” We were all confused. He yelled at us “WE PLAYED YOU GOOD!
It was all a joke someone found your diary and saw what you wrote in it” We all decided to give a lesson
and showed you what might happen if you can never see what might happen, that doesn't make sense.
You get what I mean. I’ll be calling your parents” Marika replied “So if you do show our parent they will
see that  you threatened their own children!” “ok i’ll keep it a secret “ answered Mr Somerville. All of a
sudden Pisirina jumped and said “Then how can you explain us getting pushed out the door.” “We didn’t
do that” answered Mr Goodwin standing out the door. Levonah replied then who did. “AHHHHH” they all
screamed.


To Be Continued.......

Sponge throw!

Walt: Create a successful recount

Water, what is water? Well, in my perspective water is life, fun, wet, cold and more. But what is water to you when you get to throw it at your teacher!?

This morning it was a bit more fun than usual. We started our morning off with getting ready for an
extreme fun time! Before we started our extreme fun time, Mr Goodwin gave us a little speech.
Part of it went like this, “you (as in all the team 4 classes) are going to be having a great time,
but your teachers not so much. This morning I saw teachers with a bag of spare clothes and a towel so
I had an Idea what we're going to do. We lined up outside, and walked in a squiggly line to the bottom
field and with a loud voice we received our instructions from Mr Somerville and Mr Jacobson.

Mr Somerville and Mr Jacobson had a bright orange vest on, as in they were going to do some road
works. Mr Somerville started us off with a big, good morning team, we all replied with echoing voices all
around the place. In that time our teachers were taking off jumpers, shoes and replacing them with
flippers floaties and goggles. In front of the classes were all together 9 colorful buckets filled up with
water and sponges and in front of the bucket were three chairs. We got into our literacy classes and
made three lines in front of the three buckets. I knew for sure what we were going to be doing, we were
going to chuck the wet sponges at our teachers. No wonder why our teachers were a bit stroppy this
morning.

Time to launch! The first set of people walked up to the buckets grabbed there sponges and released as
Mr Somerville yelled “ready, aim fire!” I was way at the back and so I had to wait a pretty long time for
my turn. There was a lot of noise and some pretty good shots too. About 5 minutes went past and it was
finally my turn. My first trow wasn’t so good as I hit Mr Goodwin on the leg, after my throw I went to
pick up my sponge and as I walked past Mr Goodwin I squeezed the rest of the cold water onto his
head. As flying wet sponges went through the air all three of our teachers were shivering by the first
throw.

Mr Goodwin was soaking by the time his whole class had hit him with the cold wet sponges. Half way
though Mr Somerville had called “whoever can get there teacher the most wet, will get to pour the
remaining cold water onto their teacher”. As soon as I herd Mr Somerville call whoever gets there
teacher the most wet, will get to pour the remaining cold water onto their teacher I started aiming for
Mr Goodwin's face. Poor teachers must have been having a hard time.  I was lucky to not miss
any of my shots, but there were a couple of shots that could have heart Mr Goodwin a lot. Our time
was over and Mr Somerville had chose from our three classes who got to pore the reaming water on
our teachers head, Chance, Pascal and Loseti, Chance poured it straight on top of his head Pascal
miss completely and Loseti poured it all over his head too.


This was such a fun time to have a play along with my friends and teachers. I hope we get to do this
another time, although our teachers would probably say no. Overall I had an amazing time getting my
teacher wet!

Task Description:
In this piece of writing we had to create a recount. This was actually a piece of writing for a test. We waited about a week to post this on our blogs. We didn't want to waste such a good piece of writing and so we decided to post it on our blogs.

Blindfolded

Walt: Use correct sentences to help structure 

When you hear the word blindfolds what do you think of? I think of smashing into things, trust, and also obstacle courses. I didn’t expect to be blindfolded today!

Our morning in class started off with getting ready for a fun yet nerve wracking experience. To get ready Mr Goodwin made us line up outside. We walked to the wet green field and listened to our intrusions. Our instructions were to find a buddy and sit down. Mr Goodwin told us about what we were going to be doing, we were going to be blindfolded and were going to be taken around the playground. When I heard the word blindfolds and playground I think my heart rate went up a lot with excitement. 

My buddy was Eden. Eden and I were politely arguing about who was going to be blindfolded and who was going to lead. Once we finished arguing it ended up to be that I was going to be blindfolded first. I put the black blindfold on and set off to my journey. I felt like I could trust Eden and so I just let her take me anywhere. We went on the monkey bars, climbed up the ladders and just enjoyed our time, “stop and listen” Mr Goodwin called (as some of you know we usually call stop, look and listen) He called stop and listen because some of us couldn’t see.

My time was over and it was my turn to lead. First I took Eden to the flying fox, She swung back and flue across to the other side. She did hit her leg a bit, although I was rapidly calling “put your legs up”. I don’t know if Eden did trust me? Because of that I decided to take her on higher things so I could gain trust. We went up some ladders down a pole and stood in the middle of a high wood platform. Mr Goodwin called “stop and listen” once more and our fun exciting time was over.

I didn’t think we would have had so much fun when doing such a scary thing. I really wish I could have gone on many different things and, also wish we could have done this all day. Overall this experience was so much fun, I hope we could do more things like this more often!

Task Description:
In this task room 7 had to write a recount. We had to use correct sentence to structure a correct paragraph. We also had to use descriptive language to write a recount.

Term 4, Te Wa Toi

Walt: Use correct sentences to help structure our writing.

The holidays are over and school has started again. The theme this term is all about art. Our theme this term is called Te Wa Toi. Are you excited to be back at school?

One of my favorite hobbies are art. This term we are learning about art and what types of art we can use. I love to draw, color and paint. This term we also have prize giving, athletics, manaiakalani film festival, reports and year 6 camp.This is my last term of being a year 6 so I will miss my teachers. It’s gonna be a great term.


My first goal that I want to achieve this term, is to become a leader for year 6 camp, Kawau island. My second goal that I would like to achieve this term is to confidently animate a animation this term. I would like to show more detail and a better descriptive voice over.

I want to learn about why artist give their paintings and drawings certain names and why they put it up for so much money! Another thing I would like to learn about is the meaning behind paintings and why artist would give meanings to their paintings. One more thing I want to learnt about is what is origami.


Overall I think Te Wa Toi will be a fun yet busy term. There’s a lot on this term like camp manaiakalani prize giving, and i’m hoping to reach my goals, and learn lots about different types of art. Overall this will be a great last term of being a year 6!

Task Description:
For this task room 7 wrote about this new term, and what our goal and expectations are. Room 7 also took a lesson on how to write a proper conclusion. I really enjoyed learning about how to write a conclusion, and I hope to learn much more about artist, paintings and origami.

Netball tournament



Today is the day where I finally get to play netball. I am so excited because I am going to have lots of fun playing netball with my friends, Talk a lot and also laugh a lot. I hope we win all of our games. If we win some i'll be okay with that, but if we lose all our games well, better luck next time. Me and my mum went outside and set off to leave the house. IT WAS FREEZING!!! We went off to the courts and heaps of people were there. Lots of cabanas and set ups. We had 11 people in our team but in the start there was only 8 so we waited until the rest of our team came. A bit later we had to get ready for the parade. Tonga was hosting the parade this year and so we got to march first. While waiting for the other player to march up to the front, I saw lot of friends from school, about 6 or 7. After the march we went to our gazebo and waited for our first game to start. Time went by and we got ready for our first game. I played in the second half. We had 14 mins in one half and in the other. We played Niue first. WE WON 8/4. Next game was against Cook Island. I played the 2nd half for all the games. We won Again, 18/14. Our next game was against Samoa. We won again, 18/6. We had 2 more games left. Another Niue team and Maori. We won both of our game and so we won all our games!! The score for Niue was 15/4 and the score for Maori was 26/2. This was my 3rd year playing in the Pacific cup and my first year winning all my games. As people say 3rd times a charm. I had lots of fun.

Up The Mountain


 Today we went up the Mount Wellington mountain. We woke up pretty late today but once everyone was awake we got my little sisters ready for kindy then took them to kindy. After taking them to kindy we realized no one had, had breakfast because we were all in a rush. We decided to have a late breakfast after the walk around the mountain. It was so fun walking around the mountain because I had so much energy. I don't know why but I was so hype even with a empty stomach. Well, I almost run the whole mountain, yes that is how hype I was. My sister and cousin was very scared of heights and so they were being drama queens. I had lots of fun scaring them. We saw a few dogs. One very happy to be outside and 3 cute dogs. We went around the other half of the mountain then went home. I'm lucky I did not fall. We went home and made us a healthy breakfast. We had fruity shakes. A couple minutes after breakfast we had to pick up my little sisters because one had a very high temperature. On the way to their kindy it was a DISASTER. We almost ran out of gas. So we almost got stuck in the middle of the road but lucky we made it home with filled up gas.

Last Training (So Excited)


On Wednesday I went to have one last netball training. It was a very fun and silly training. First as always we did our drills. Next we did our stretching. Then got into some more drills. After all of that we decided to play a quick game. As I said I love to play WA (wing attack). So I played WA. I love to play netball because it is so fun and it also is a good way to keep me fit. Well anyways I don't even know if we won because we were all to busy laughing. I am so excited for our tournament. After my netball training we went to play at the park. We went to the park to wait for my little sister finish kindy. We played tag. After a while we went to pick up my little sisters then went to have lunch. Which was SUSHI! We all had teriyaki chicken on rice all except for my aunty and cousin. If you are wondering where are my parents well they are in Cambridge watching my brother play rugby. My aunty had a, actually I forgot. My cousin had a no cut tuna and avocado roll. Once we had our lunch we packed up and went home. After a while we went home. When we went home we decided to do our nails so we did them. We made a big mess but we did clean up after us. I'm having lots of fun this holidays, and don't worry the photos are from my aunty's Snapchat account.

Hanging out

On Monday I went to one of my friends (Marika) house just to hang out. In the morning I woke up went to get changed and came downstairs. Then I went to go get my little sisters ready for kindy. After that I had breakfast and took my little sisters off to kindy, then made our way down to Marika's house. When we arrived at Marika's house I knocked on the door, Marika came to awnser. Once she opened the door I was so excited to hang out with my friend. I came in and we started to play with slime (us girls love slime). A few minutes we went outside to Marika's secret garden. We walked to the secret garden and at the garden oh the secret garden there was a plastic bag fulled with shells. We made a little pathway to the secret garden. Which isn't so secret anymore well anyways, we went back inside and later on we went to pick up another friend (Pisirina). We went to her

house picked her up and went back to Marika's house. Later on we went to Marika's grandmother (Gigi). After visiting Marika cousin and grandmother we went to the city to go get some ice cream. The ice cream store is called Giapo. We went in and got some free samples. My flavor ice cream I got was hokey pokey. My ice cream got dipped into chocolate and there was a row of real hokey pokey yummy. After eating our ice creams we went for a walk around the city to burn off all the fat we just ate. We did about 6 miles of walking. We looked for the car, hoped in and discussed what we
were going to have for lunch. We decided to have sushi well teriyaki chicken on rice. It was really yummy after eating we went back to Marika's house then, yes your right played with slime. After playing with slime we decided to have a walk to the park. We took Marika's dodge ball and had lots of fun. We went back to Marika's house and hung out a bit more. If Marika and Miss King are reading I just wanted to say thank you for letting me hang out with you guys.


Trip to Cambridge

On Sunday me and my mum went shopping to buy my dad new shoes. We bought the shoes at Puma and everything was on special. During shopping my grandmother called and asked if we would like to come with her to watch my brother play his rugby tournament down in Cambridge. We had a little think about it and kept on shopping. After a few minute we finally found my dad's new shoes oh yea and our decision. It was my brothers first game and we didn't want to miss out so we agreed to go with my grandparents. Once we bought the shoes we quickly made our way home because we didn't want to miss our ride. We got home did a couple thing and my grandparents turned up, we hoped in the car and started our trip. It takes about 2 hours to get to Cambridge. By the time we started our trip me and my mum hadn't have breakfast so we decided to stop somewhere in Cambridge and get some....... pretty much brunch. Once we arrived close to Cambridge there were a lot of amazing houses views and it was so fun on thee road with loud music pumping. There were a lot of cows too. MOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. OK back to the story. We arrived in Cambridge and had a little drive around to find us some breakfast. We stopped and found a bakery. We went in and got some food. I got a mince and cheese pie, a drink and a cup of chips. YUMMM. After breakfast we went to St Peters and went to the field  my bother was playing on. It was very loud. Lots of people. There were even drums hyping up the crowd. (Skipping to the end of the game) My brother played the whole game and even got a try. They did win there game! (good on them). After watching his game I realized I had to experience that whole ride home back, until my grandmother said "should we go out for ice cream?" I sat up wasn't so sad anymore hahahah. I got a double scoop and the two flavors were lemon and lime and cookie and cream. After ice cream we went strait home and played around.



SWIMMING!

On Friday me, my family, one of my brothers friend and one of my cousin went swimming. We went to the Otahuhu pools. It was very fun as there was a little blue slide. I may have gone on that slide like 8 or 9 times. Well anyways, as we walked into the pools we received a purple wristband which was actually for the spa pool. We all received one. Once we went into the pools we had a shower and hoped into the pools. We had lots of fun. We had lots of fun at the pools, on the slide in the spa pools. There was also a bombing pool. My favorite part of swimming was the spa pool because it was very relaxing. The twins were allowed in the spa pool too!  There were 5 pools plus the water park outside. The kids pool, the pool with the slide in it, the spa pool the swimming pool (hahahah) and the booming pool. I went into the pool with the slide in it first then the spa pool then back in the pool with the slide in it then the swimming pool and its constant. We didn't take many photos and so those two are from after swimming. I had lots of fun.

Mini Tournament

 
So on Saturday I had a mini tournament to prepare us for next weeks tournament. I am in team 4 and our team is called Mohokoi (Mo-ho-ko-i). I am representing Tonga this year. My team is very fun and thankfully we have enough people. My coach and manager is very fun and nice. Well anyways, we had 3 games to play and unluckily we only won 1 game (SAD) but that is good because we should know what we need to work on for the next tournament. The other teams were very very good. The teams we played were from Tongan that's why it was a mini tournament. I had lots of fun getting to know people in the team. Doing netball drills. I'm so happy because I GOT NEW SHOES FOR NETBALL YAAY! Hopefully we do good next week and i'll keep you updated with whats going on. Oh yea and just to confirm we are not representing Australia.

Another Birthday


So today we are going to Happy Days (a restaurant) for my little cousins birthday. I'm very excited to go back to school because my cousin is turning 5. So you know what that means, he's coming to PT ENGLAND SCHOOL before we went any where we went to EXTREME a arcade/bowling center. I did pretty well with my bowling. I haven't done it in a while and my score was like 73, well around that number. After bowling we went over to the games. The fist game I played was (forgot what it's called) hit the clown (made that up). You got a timer and unlimited handballs to trow at the clowns. The top row was worth 30, the second was worth 20 and of course the bottom one was worth 10. My favorite game I played had to be the Laser Frenzy. We did quietly argue about who was going to swipe their card. Luckily I didn't have to swipe my card. My final score of tickets was 167, I decided to get myself a bunch of water balloons and a couple of lollies. After Extreme we had something to eat then went home. Once we got home I went to my room to get changed for netball training. 10 minutes later my mum took me to the netball courts. We did lots of running. After training my mum picked me u and took me home. When I arrived at home I ran inside and had a shower. After my shower I got changed, put my shoes on, did my hair and left. It was hard to find parking but eventually we found one. We sat in the restaurant for a while then the speeches then the prayer. We went to go get our food, then our 2nd then our desserts (ICE CREAM AND CAKE MM-MM) It was so fun playing around with my cousins especially the one who turned 5 Hahahahahah!

             !Happy birthday!

GOING TO JUMP

So Eva, my little sisters, mum and I are just getting ready to go to Jump (a trampoline park) for our cousin birthday. It's going to be lots of FUN. My cousin is so excited to go to Jump and is very excited to see us. For her birthday we bought her a Simon swipe. The Simon swipe is a very cool game. The Simon swipe will tell you a pattern and you will have to repeat that pattern anyways, see you when we get back!


So we just came back from Jump and it was so much fun. My favorite part about Jump probably had to be the foam pit. Every time I  jumped into the foam pit I always got stuck. I would hold onto a rope, swing back then swing into the foam pit. I did lots of tricks like the splits in the air, cartwheels and handstands! I also really liked the dodge ball area. I hardly got hit with the ball and so I hardly got out. There were also trampoline on the wall and so I did some tricks there too.

Outside all day

Today (Sunday) for the first day of daylight savings it was very very sunny and hot so my family pretty much stayed outside in the nice hot sun all day. In the morning we went to see my aunty then came back home. After coming back home we sat on our devices for a little then made our way outside. 30 minutes went past and my little twin sisters had to go for a nap so my mum took them inside and waited for them to fall asleep. Then my mum feel asleep. While my mum and the twins were sleeping I decided to take my Chromebook outside and listen to songs while sitting in the hot air. After a while my sister and I put our stuff back inside grabbed some ice blocks and ate the refreshing cold ice blocks. After our ice blocks we went into the trampoline and did lots of tricks. Then a couple minutes went past and we decided to grab another ice block. Then another, then another, until they were all gone. I'm just joking. When we went inside to grab another ice block one of my baby sisters came around the corner and gave Eva and I a fright. We took her outside and played with her until her twin sister woke up. Once she woke up they decided to ride on their bikes and Eva and I had the trampoline all to our selves! We did some chores outside then went back on the trampoline. 5:26 (more like 4:26 because of daylight savings) we figured it was getting a bit cold so we finally went inside.

I think I am going to have a good holiday!!

Netball training and Birthday!

On Saturday I had a netball training and, I got to know more about my team. I am playing Pacific cup and I am in the Tongan team. When training yesterday the whole team had to say their name, their favorite food and what position they play for netball. We play full court for Pacific cup and I get to play WA (wing attack), my favorite. It didn't take long for me to know everyone's name so it was pretty easy. After getting to know my team we got strait into netball drills. A lot of running, a lot of squats and a lot of stretching. Right after doing a few drills we got into playing half court because we didn't have enough people to play full court. A little while later my Dad came to pick me up early because we had a birthday and a hair cutting ceremony to attend. So we made our way home. Once I got home I had a shower got in to a pretty dress and put my shoes on. After everyone was ready we started walking to the car. We hoped in the car and drove to valentines. In Manukau. When we arrived we waited a bit then after a while we made our way into the restaurant. A few minutes later I got bored and really hungry. We were all the way at the back of the restaurant and so I couldn't see a THING. We waited a bit long then got to eat. We said the prayer, singed happy birthday and made out way down to the food. It has been a very fun holiday already and I will be posting lots more blog post so keep tuned.
