My Favourite toy

My favourite toy is a car because I can take it with me everywhere and sleep with it too. My favourite toy looks like a Lamborghini because it’s fast like it and I like to play around with it. I just feel like I’m in a real Lamborghini. My toy car sounds like it’s going over the speed limit. It’s so fast that it could go 800mph. I reckon it’s the fastest car in the world, but I think its the Ferrari.

My favourite toy makes me feel like I’m driving it because when I play around with the car I imagine like I’m in a real car. My toy reminds me of my old car that my Dad sold on Trade Me because I always go everywhere with my Dad and Mum in the car.

The best memories I had of my toy is when I had my birthday party at my house. It was cool because I got my first toy car when I was 5 years old. I was happy because I play with it and my cousin and I had some racing competitions.

Cross Country

On Friday I went to go change my clothes in the boys toilets. I went to sit down in my line with the 12 years old group. When I was lining up to start the race I was nervous and kind of shaking a bit when Mr Burt was about to say go. I was ready to run but while waiting for Mr Burt to say go my legs were aching. Boom! went the clappers. I went to jog with my mates. As we were running Deedee was coming 1st out of the race.

We ran around the corner on the muddy and slippery ground. As I ran on the field, I entered the wet, puddly and gooey mud with my friends near the bush walk. As we were running through the scary brush walk we saw lots of trees and dirty water just on the side but when I got to the step and it  was slippery. So I took my time running and sometimes walking I stop and had a break near the Pt England gates. I was dizzy and kind of wobbling too.

I ran out to the fields and I saw Ms King and Mrs Lagitupu. I was running on the muddy ground and my shoes almost came out so I went around the cones to the dry grass. My legs were covered in mud even my shoes. I kept on running and I was close to the finish  line. I went near the 4 little wooden poles near the gate and ran my fastest to the finish line. I came 13th or 14th place but I didn’t care.

I was exhausted and thirsty and I felt great about it.

Usain Bolt


Yohan Blake went to sprint to try and beat Usain Bolt. Fast as lightning Usain Bolt broke the world record as the crowd was cheering for the green, yellow and black Jamaican team. Crossing the finish line was just awesome. It was like a victory because they were champions.

As Usain Bolt won he was the fastest man in the 100 metre sprints.

Basketball


I like playing basketball because it’s a lot of fun when you shoot the ball into the hoop. On Thursday we went to go and play Basketball on the courts. We play near the office with room fifteen.

First we had to pick some random people in our classroom to make a team to do training with Shae and Tai. Some of my teammates are very  talented like the coach. He told us some instructions on how to play Basketball. He said “there’s no double dribble”. When he told us the instructions we started to practice doing our skills and bouncing so we don’t double dribble.

We went to play some games and do some moves. My team was cheating because they didn’t want to lose, so we threw the ball to the back of our line. We kind of won but we cheated so my team didn’t win we lost. Anyway we were trying and we did our best. It was tiring when we had to run at the front. I was exhausted and sometimes I did epic fails.

My Holiday highlight

My holiday was cool because I went to this program where we could play around and go anywhere. But our first trip was the Long Bay beach. There were lots of activities there. When we hopped out of the bus we went to this hall and sat down to have our snacks and had a little play around. 


The leader came and told us about the rules and safety because there were lots of cars on the road so she told us all of the rules. Then we went into a group and went to do a hard activity to don’t touch the ground with our feet.

Maths Whizz

This week I spent 68 minutes on Maths Whizz.

Art reflection

This term 2 reflection was alright because I didn’t like art that much. Our reflection was art alive because when we grow up we could be a artist like Henri Matisse or Vincent vongo they are both really good at drawing and they are a artist too. There are lots of artist in the world like pablo picasso he draw a face and mix it up and change it but he leave the face and draw another face and make it detail.


This term was a bast because it was cool. I hope next term is better than art alive like space or boxing but i don't know what it going to be but I thing its going to be fun or not. My reflection was alright but my best art was Henri matisse and my other one was pablo picasso because it look real or 3d.


I hope we have another great term.


Super room

My Special place is at home with the family because I can help my Mum to do the washing or clean up the house. Some times my Mum and Dad get tired and go to sleep while I clean. They have a rest but sometimes they do all of the work so they take a break. 
I like to clean up my room because it looks tidier and when people come in it won't be a mess.
I choose my room because it is my special place. It’s more tidy and cleaner than my old room before. My room is my special place because it’s nice and warm and that is important to me. 
My artist that I have picked is Vincent Van Gogh because I like the colour and the detail. His technique is very interesting.

Jenny and jack


Once upon a time there lived two kids named Jenny and Jack they lived in a huge tower. The two kids were locked in their tower, forbidden to leave the tower until the king lets them free. The reason for them locked away is because their dad was a thief and murderer of the great kingdom of Glen Innes. Their dad had died while trying to flee the lord's army but he got stabbed by the king with a spear. So the dad could not get punished. The mental and cruel king chose to punish his two kids instead of the dad. But the kids made it down from their keep at the top of the tower to see if they could try escape. Their luck was good because the guard forgot to lock the gates so they peeked through to see if there were any guards on the other side of the gate.

Jenny noticed a chalkboard and read it, it had the timetables of when the guards go for a break 10.00a.m-12.01p.m. While they read about the timetables, the guards took a break they know what to do to escape from the guards so they ran and saw the king sitting down on his chair but the king called for his guards and the guards rushed to the scene but luckily the gate was still open so they ran. Then Jenny tripped up and yelled help, but the guards shut the gate closed.

So Jack saw the king and knocked as hard as he could on the door while he was screaming please let her go but the king said leave my kingdom and never return. So he disappeared through the forest grounds and into the kingdom of Pt England never to be seen.11 years after he was banished he went to the king of Pt England to ask him for help, he pleaded “Lord Nazok please help me on a journey to save my sister” and he responded “yes neff I will help you on your journey to save the thing that means most to you”.

Thank you my king we need to figure out a plan how to attack the enemy Glen Innes. So they fought of a plan and attacked G.I

Taonga time


Last week on Friday I went to room 18 to do ice hockey. Mr Barks told us the rules and about safety because our teeth might come out if you get hit. At first he told us about the first rule. There was no high stick allowed. If you do it you get sin binned. Mr Barks told us about being offside and shoulder barging. He then asked if we needed a mouthguard, cap, and a helmet, because if you don’t get any of them you will get hurt.

Next, we played and my team was good because we won lots of games at Tamaki. Mr Barks and I were one of the best, but then I kept on getting the ball and shooting it in the goal. Sometimes I missed the goal. Mr Barks is the man because when he shot long he sometimes gets it in, but then we won against the boys.

At last, it was the final. The girls were pretty good but we kept on losing so we lost. We didn’t really lose. We felt sorry for them, so we let them win.

Kane Compare and Contrast Picasso's 'The Weeping Woman' and and Daniella Hulmes 'A lazy day in paradise'.


On Monday the 14th of may we wrote about Compare and Contrast Picasso and Daniella too. The Weeping Woman look like she was sad and crying because it look like someone died. Picasso does random drawing and colourful colours it just look real because it look 3D. The technique that Picasso used was changing his drawing and making it different.

A lazy day in Paradise Daniella draw samoa patten because she married to a samoan Man. She like to draw samoa patterns and it look like it was the same one because it all seem the same because Daniella all way in the picture but she look kind of sad because she was alone. Daniella used different  technique it was special kind of brush stroke technique.

Henry Matisse and Van Gogh



We were asked to compare and contrast paintings by Van Gogh and Matisse. The paintings were called ‘Sunflowers’ and ‘La Musique’. Vincent Van Gogh used a special kind of brush stroke technique. He chopped off his ear and give it to his girlfriend but she didn't like it so she chucked it away because she was scared. Van Gogh chopped off his ear for nothing. Matisse's drawing are rough and colourful.

When I observe Vincent Van Gogh's painting,  the sunflowers look dead, burnt and sad. It looked like Vincent Van Gogh never look after his sunflowers. He used brown, yellow, and green. The background colour looks light yellow or brown.

Matisse drawings are kind of messy and his artwork looks very rough. He drew two ladies. One was with a guitar and one was sitting down. I like the background because it was like a cold shady place with the leaves.

Both paintings are opposites because one looks happy and one looks sad. La Musique is the happy painting and Sunflowers is the sad one.

The Treaty of waitangi


On 6th of February 1840 the Treaty of waitangi was signed. The Maori signed the treaty with the British. But some Maori were not happy to sign. There was a lot of clashes and conflict between Maori and Pakeha at the time.

There were arguments and disagreements at the treaty. A man called William Hobson and James Busby wrote a draft of the treaty. The Maori Tribes were angry because they did not understand the British Interests.

So a man named Henry Williams translated English into Maori so that the people of te reo Maori could understand. After he translated the Maori knew what they wanted and had a discussion. After the talk the Maori people wanted to sign the Maori version of the treaty.

The people were happy and all signed the treaty. William Hobson did a speech, “he iwi tahi tatou” we are all one people. They were all happy and celebrated. The principles of the treaty the 3 p’s: Protection, Partnership, and Participation.

After that my Dad picked his next activity and it was this racing car but I was too small so I went in this 3D to watch the dinosaur movie.

I put on my 3D classic and when the movie played the chair was moving and it felt real. I got out and went by the entry to get ready and go home. I was waiting for all of them to come and when they got there we took a photo by the the door.

Rainbows End was a lot of fun.
