Creative Writing:

I couldn’t get some sleep so I decided to do my favourite thing to do, which is singing, I started to sing when all a sudden I was interrupted by my brother he said “ Be Quiet…...i'm trying to sleep” Then he turned on his side facing opposite of me, I was so angry at him, I moved closer to him and I sang the same song again and he gets up very fast  and we are face to face he moans “I told you to be quiet……...Now go away before I” ,but before he could finish I shouted at him, just like he did to me and I said “Can you not be like that……...Music is special to me………….You always do this to me”. Then I get an idea. He stands there confused and I start to walk back slowly.

Then I take my ukulele and I start to sing a song our mother used to sing and all my friends joined in my song be. He didn’t move but his mouth was wide open. In my head I thought my plan was working.
Then he asks if he can have a try with a smile, I thought my plan has worked, but as I said I “thought”, He looked at me and then he looked at the ukulele and …...he throw it in the fire…….I was so shocked I just stood there with my mouth open and only with my eyes I looked at him and then the fire repeatedly.

What is your favourite part and why?
  • I didn’t have a favourite part because it was all amazing, but I hated the part when Timiona was getting teased by Lucy and Moera in the beginning of the story.

Write a short paragraph about it.
  • Battle is a story about a boy whose Great - Great Grandfather fought in the war and for his bravery and he soon received a medal, which would soon help his great - great grandchild Timoan in his war / battle.

Feedback (by Henrietta Latu)

Trip to the Marae:

07/07/16 - Visit to the Marae
I was so excited because the whole school was going to the Marae in Glen Innes and I had never been there before, only at my own Marae. As we were walking towards the Marae, I thinking about my Karanga / Powhiri that I was going to do, before we entered the Marae.

In this Photo I am preparing for my Karanga
with Mrs. Tui

When we got there I was worried and scared I was going to forget a word or miss pronounce it, because that was the worst thing that could happen, as I started I felt more confident and at the end, I was no longer scared, then we removed our shoes and entered the Marae.

Then the Chief of the Marae stood up and said some words, then  2 boys from our class, Room 7 stood up and said some words in Maori and then English, after them it was our principal’s turn, he said thank you on behalf of our school, then the 10 people in front and me went up to hongi the people of that marae.

After that we all went outside, put on our shoes and we had some food to eat, only a bit, then we went and explored, Me, Von, Henrietta, Malia, Luisa, Stanley and other students played Pukana, after that we were all called into the hall.
This is our class outside
the Marae

When we were in the hall, Where Whaere taught us some more words and the meaning / story of their Marae and it’s name Ruapotaka, she also told us our pepeha, it’s like a introduction of who you are and where you come from.

After that we were put with our soul friends, first we were making a flower with flax, then we went back into the Marae and sang a waiata.
This is us singing the

Then we had Lunch and we played again. Then we had a big chat with the people from that Marae. Then we got onto the bus and we went to tech, but the other classes stayed.

31/05/16 - Science Road show

 I was really excited because we were about to go to Tamaki College for a science road show. Only Room 7 and 5 were going to the show and we went by car from some of the parents who volunteered, I was in Mrs Tui’s car with Faleaka and Courtney, I was sitting in the front seat looking out the window it started raining, I thought in my head luckily we didn't walk. We arrived at Tamaki College ,but we weren't sure where the science tour show was, we went inside the Auditorium and when we walked in we saw a board with cans and sugar next to it. It showed how much sugar was in 4 cans, 10 cans and then a whole bunch of cans. When we walked inside the room, I saw lots of boards and strange items all around the room. Then a lady did an experience about absorbing and she had 3 tubes of green water and she did a little test, then we went out to explore the stations of experiments. There was so many to explore, first I went to the Double Wave and at that station you see 2 containers on a wall filled with colourful water and there was a handle. I pushed it up and down, it made waves even though the handle was only on the bottom container, it was connected and it looked the same. After exploring so many experiences a bell rang and we came back and we went back and sat in our seats, we looked at the man and some people did the Extra Experiments competition and the winners were Rosrine and Kainesini, they got a dinosaur printed by the 3d printer that was there. Then they started doing some interesting experiences and I learned more about Sound and how it travels through air, I was really amazed. Then when we finished we had a little recap of what we had learned, then we went outside and we all went back to school.

Descrptive Writing: Mother's Day

A mother is a person who gives you new life and raises you to be the person you are today.

A mother will do anything she can to provide shelter, food and love all for you, she will go past all limits for her precious child.

When you get older you start to fight and argue with you mum then she roars at you like a lion, but keep in mind what she has done for you, all that hard work and stress for you, she might make you annoyed or confused, but she just wants the best for her precious child.

I have a mother and she loves me more than anything, she is so special to me, she is my role model, she is kind, Caring, Creative and Affectionate.

But some mother’s aren’t perfect, they make mistakes and have some flaws, but they care for you with all their heart

Like I love my mum with all my heart and no one will ever tear us apart, she is the reason why our family is together, she is my lovely mother.

A Little Owl

5 Reasons why I made this my best writing:
  1. I like this writing because it has some rhymes in it. ( highlighted in text)
  2. I like this writing because there are some interesting words.
  3. I like this writing because It has correct Spelling. (made by the computer and me)
  4. I like this writing because it has correct Punctuation.
  5. I like this writing because this writing is Organised with paragraphs. ( 7 paragraphs)

Once upon a time there lived a little owl, he loved to play around,but he always got a growl
This little Owl was very adventurous, but mum and dad said this is ridiculous.
He had lots of dreams and hopes, but mum and dad would tie him up with a rope
Life was very hard, it was like his parents were his guards
He loved them very much, but wish he could do something as such
He was stuck in that tree, but he wanted to be free.
So one day he had a plan, to make a rockin band
There was a Owl, that made the crowd go wow
There was a Fox, that really knew how to rock
There was a Rabbit, who had a nasty habit
“He couldn't stop tapping on the drums”
Oh no, mum and dad were home
And they were about to moan
They yelled and growled
At their sweet little owl
They pushed them all out
And said no more you nasty grouts
The little owl had no choice, but to stay in his tree

And only dream of finally being wild and free….

Soul Friends:

Today is Saint Patrick's Day. St. Pius X School celebrated this day with a mass.   It is our Soul Friend Day. At mass Father blessed our friendship.    
If you are wondering what is a soul friend, well a soul friend is when an older student and a smaller student are joined together as friends. It is just like family.
We modelled this friendship from the Irish Holy Faith Sister who started our school many years ago.

My soul friend is a very cheeky little girl known as Melenaite. She is a very beautiful and bubbly girl from is in Room 1. I called her Mele for short. She is 6 years old. Today after our Soul Friend mass she gave me this wonderful praying hand that she made. I love it and I know she is praying for me. Thank you my Soul Friend.
Fa’afetai tele lava

Narrative Structure: Badge of Honour

Week 5: 3rd march 2016
Story: Badge of honour
  • To monitor my reading
  • To ask questions about what we read?
  • To show understanding by identifying the narrative structure of the story

Religious Education: Stations of the cross - 8

8th Station: The woman of Jerusalem

Yellow: Simile
Orange: Describing word

I was pushed through the front of the crowd, the crowd was as Enormous as the town and then I was standing there in the crowd, watching as the poor son of god, Jesus Christ was carrying the heavy cross, It was as heavy as a container full of big books, he was struggling , so a man named simon was forced to help,

As I watched there was a group of weeping woman, Then I heard a woman say “You are the man of sorrow” and another say “ You are like a innocent frightened little lamb being lead to slaughter”.

I get pushed to the ground , by these annoyed and Grumpy guards, I fell lots of pain, it was as painful as getting hit with a rock and I cry out, but hey just laugh at me and call me pathetic, As I lay there I could just see Jesus trying to console the group of weeping woman, So I get back up on my knees and beg for forgiveness and I pray to lord.

I say “Dear Lord, Help me to be a faithful and Honest friend. When my friends are going through a hard time or are being made fun of, I want to help them and be a wonderful and kind friend” “Amen”.

I stay there on my knees, praying to the lord, I get kicked and pushed over again many more times, but I  think about the pain, that our lord is suffering, so I stay there for a few more hours, praying to the lord our “I am”.

My Fun Holiday:

My Fun Holiday! - Wednesday 3rd february  

In the Holidays, I went to Mission bay with my family, it was loads of fun, but I had the most fun when I was in the sea with my brother and we were playing around. Even though it was hot we couldn’t feel it because we were in the water, it was like it disappeared from the moment we jumped in.

At the beach it so fun and after we got ice cream, I got two scoops of rainbow, it was Yummy, like all the flavors melting in your mouth, infact I feel like one right now.

After the beach, we went home and I my parents were preparing dinner, so I watched T.V and sat on the couch, waiting for Dinner. When Dinner was ready we sat on the table and there was Fried Chips, Fried potatoes and lots of vegetables to make a burger. After we ate I felt sleepy and I went to bed.

Welcome & Greetings to you all !

My First week at School

My first week in Room 7 was really exciting, but it is a bit different being in Room 7, with a new Teacher, Mrs Tui. There are lots of old faces and new faces, like my friends and different people like the year 8s. It is quite cool being a year 7 and I this year I am going to set some goals and I hope I will achieve them. In Room 7 it is really amazing and I am looking forward to another great year of fun and lots of learning.
