My animation for term 4

Walt: write for an audience

This week I learned alot about polar bears and camels. Our class has to do one animation for each term but if that sounds easy it is not trust me. It takes alot of hard work because it like a side scroller game. Feel free to read and enjoy.

This term we had to do a animation about the desert and Antarctica. We had to choose one animal from Arctic and the desert for example I chose scorpion from the desert and a seal from Arctic. I will explain two main ideas about my writing.

For my animation i chose a camel from the desert and a polar bear from Arctic. I chose camel because the facts about the camels are really interesting. When the camels are thirsty they can drink a whole lot of water for example us humans can drink three bottles a day but camels can drink 10 bottles or more and they carry all that water in their tummy while they are travelling with people.

The Polar bear is awesome they can swim and dive in the water. They have plenty of fur to make them warm. When it’s summer some of their fur goes away but when it’s winter they grow more fur isn't that interesting. When the Polar bear is wondering around the snow the colour of their fur is really white but when they are in the water it turns to a different colour like yellow.It would be hard to choose the best out of the Polar bear and the camel. Which one would you choose?

My favourite part was learning about the animals it was very fun. Next time I would love to learn more about different animals and that was my favourite part. It felt really good to learn about different animals and different things, especially different animals so u know what is good for it, what kind of food it eats, and what are its habits. Thanks for reading my free blog writing i hope you enjoyed.

Cross country

This term we had cross country. It was sunny and the day was calm except the people.

Guess what! On Monday 11th we had cross country. I was getting very nervous i didn't even want to come school to race, I had to practice running and eat healthy but it we were going to race that day. Everybody was excited especially the little kids. The teachers also couldn’t wait to see us run. It was like everybody was going crazy over a race.

Our principal Mr Burt told us to all come and meet at the courts. Once we got there it looked colorful because everybody was wearing their house colour t-shirt. Our house colors were blue, yellow, red, and green. I was in blue and that is my favorite colour cool right. Our sports teacher Ms Vaafusuaga told us that it is going to be a little different first the year 1 girls go then the yr 1 boy, second yr 2 girls then yr 2 boys then it goes on the same time until it reaches the yr 5 after the year 5 goes the yr 7 goes then the yr 6, for last the year 8’s race.
When we sat down to watch the kids race it was exciting. We all saw they were having fun because they were smiling and laughing it was so funny though. The yr 7’s were finish it was our turn I was getting so nervous that I was shaking hard out. Mr Burt said go! we sprinted and I still had lots of energy until we got to the gate. Most of the girls were stopping but I was never gonna stop. We got to the field i was so tired I was going to stop but no then I was thinking what could I think of instead so I was thinking very hard then some inspiring words came to my head it was to NEVER GIVE UP.
It was really helping but the problem was I couldn’t breath so I stopped for a little bit and had a rest then sprinted I realize i was going really fast that i beat everyone who beat me. When the race finished I wasn’t pleased I was disappointed because I came fifth in cross country but that's not bad unless I didn’t came tenth or last. Well god bless the people who had fun and that participated in cross country.

Next year I will be ready to run. I am planing to come first, second, third, or fourth and if I don’t come in any of these places I will be mad but ill try hard to get their. I am very very very excited for the next special cross country coming up. Next time will prove that i am fast enough to race other students from different schools.

Last year at cross country I came third so I had to race the other schools. I did race other students from different school and guess what!! I came first, i was very pleased and happy i couldn’t even believe that i came first it's just like wow! Next year i am pretty sure it is just gonna be like that day : ) .

Thanks teachers for being great supporters and great leaders. You guys ROCK! Next year i wish I get to see the teachers race.

Team 4 trade fair

Walt:add one main idea per paragraph.

This term we are learning about Trade and Enterprise. Trade and Enterprise is about creating and selling products. We have been broken up into 6 different business groups to learn about what it takes to be a businessman or woman.

As part of our terms topic we had a trade fair. Trade fair is different from a market because a market is where you buy things but a trade fair is where you take orders. Me and my partners product was about ukuleles.

For the trade fair my friends and I have created a business called Royal rumble. We were selling our product for 4.50 pt but when people came and were looking at it they thought it was expensive but we stopped and asked how much would they take it for some of them said 2pt and I made a deal.

I’m really excited about our market day coming up in week 8! We are hoping to make lots of PTs!!

If I had one million dollars

Walt: write effective paragraphs using juicy and exciting words.

If I had one million dollars and I only had to spend it at the mall in Sylvia park I will be shopping till midnight! That will be fun, eating every single hour and you can buy whatever you want, help out your family with the rent.Also I would buy a whole lot of food for the poor people.

At toy world I will get toys, mini car that my nephews and nieces can fit in. I will get me 3-4 enormous cuddly teddy bear because every time I sit down with my nephews and watch cartoon the commercial will come on with some toys and they will ask if I could get them the toys but I will say yap ill get it but ill turn my head and whisper next year.

From JB HI-FI I would get the digital camera, Samsung galaxy i phone 5-6, and a apple laptop. I would get these things because I have wanted these ever since the start of the year but my dad says I am too young to have a phone and a laptop.

I would get 5 pairs of Jordan's for me and for each of my family and would get some Nike’s, air maxes, and adidas and with the leftover money I would give some to my family and my teachers.

If I really had one million dollars and it came true I will be thrilled with happiness and full excited. I would just stop worrying about things and just buy it, put money in and boom! got already don't have to do anything just kickback and relax.

Explaining my game

Welcome to my game. In my game I had to create a side scroller game. My game is called The Adventure in Magical World. In my game my character’s name is Lily she wears blue pants and a green T-shirt. Have you created a game that you would love to play?

My character has a powerful laser gun on her hand that can shoot miles away. In my game the main thing about it is to complete level 2 and you will get the trophy of victory. In Adventure world she has to shoot the target to bring the long black wire down. Once Lily shoots the target she jumps on top of the triangle then gets the coins and run to the other side.That is Level one finish.
The challenging part of my game is when Lily faces the enemy which is a plant shooter. To move you have to use the arrows to move side to side and press the space bar to jump. If you're losing and you want to win a life you have to run and hit the hearts then you got one more lives.

When she challenge the plant shooter the plant shooter shoots colour balls at you but if you shoot the plant shooter with a red bullet it will not die but once you shoot the colour ball in his mouth the end of the plant shooter.

If children are bored on a wet lunch time the can go on the hyperstudio and finish off there game that they created.Thank you for watching my game I hope you like it.

Thursday, 7 May 2015


I will explain three main ideas about world war one.Guess what war broke out in Europe in August nineteen fourteen. When it was world war one New Zealand was planning to capture German Samoa War broke out in Europe in August nineteen fourteen. After war broke out the Britain's asked New Zealand to seize German Samoa but in a great way.

On August twenty ninth nineteen fourteen New Zealand did capture German Samoa.The first soldier from New Zealand to die was private William ham He was fighting in turkey on a battlefield in an area that is known as suez canal.They were fighting against the Ottoman troops.

World war one is very interesting but sad to for lovely soldiers who died.The powerful weapons they used at war was canon belge,snipers,Rifles and stone civil war gun.A stone civil war gun is like a massive war machine it is so massive that Four to six people can fit inside it and throw bombs to the enemy.For those soldiers who die we shall remember them in honour and never forget what they have done for New Zealand.

In world war one the soldiers ate bully beef which is called corned beef now,fresh meat,Maconochie's meat stew.They also ate vegetables to keep them healthy and hard biscuits was a meal for the soldiers.Did you know Maori left New Zealand one hundred years ago,was the first organized effort by Maori to represent themself overseas.

I feel really sad for those people who died from world war one I really hope that they died in peace but I know most of them didn’t.They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.We must not forget them we should always keep them in our Memory.

The first thing I did well was the introduction.I thought that I done really well on my introduction because I added lots of detail and lots of facts about world war one.That was the easiest part.It was very hard when I had to explain the third sentence.I am happy that even though I struggled I managed to finish my writing.

I have realised that I should have questions and punctuation and details.
I didn't remember to add more detail so next time I hope that I will archive my rights.
The next time I write I hope that my writing is perfect and my writing gets more interesting for the reader.
My goal for my writing is to make sure that my writing makes sense, add lots of detail and to add punctuation.

Mālama Honua

Have you been to the Hokule’a and Hikiana powhiri? If you haven’t wow! You have missed an big adventure on Wednesday 25th march. It was great! At first all the schools like Panmure bridge, Glen bray, Tamaki college came to point England reserve for the Malama Honua. Some of the students from every school went for a ride in the boat. Our principal Mr Burt was there and the camera crew was there.

We sat down on the wet green grass and waited for the two waka’s to come, it took for long but as we were waiting someone was blowing a horn and someone was blowing the trumpet. Once they had landed on our beach the man was talking to us then all of the school’s sang three song’s called E oho, Nga waka E whitu and E Honore. It was extremely amazing meeting the people and really fun too.

When we meet the people who traveled from Hawai’i to Point England reserve we had to walk down the stairs then run! Running to high five all the visitors on the hand.There we go running fast as we could through the hard rough sand as we were running it was hard to run in the sand and when we kick the sand will bounce back into our shoes and sandals.

I really liked going to the Malama Honua it was fun.I would like to go and visit Hawai’i for a Holiday and I would like to go on a long day in the boat while we are fishing in the ocean. The excited thing I was really excited about is that we are all going to be on TV!

Friday, 20 March 2015


We are learning to write five long paragraph with five sentences.

Guess what? On Tuesday the 10th of march the year six and year five’s were going on camp.They brang their suitcase to school and put it into the hall.I was very excited about camp but I was not allowed to go because I was sick that I had  to swallow pills.

The next day I stayed home because I was coughing really bad.When I was coughing I thought that I might not go to school on Thursday because I had a  headache too.While I stayed home I laid on the couch and watched Tv,while I was watching tv I was thinking about what they were doing at camp and how fun would it be to go and play with your friends for the rest of the day.

If I were at camp I would be having fun instead of sitting there watching TV.When I came back to school I heard that there were groups and each group was called All stars,Honesty,True crew,Real dealz,commitments and Matapono e. I was in the real dealz and the real dealz was cool and when each group performed on the stage that was kind of a competition of who will come first,second,and third.

I was really looking forward of who was going to come first,second or third.I really hope the real dealz came first or second.It was really boring at home cause I wasn’t allowed to see my nesses and nephews before they get the sickness so I just drawed picture’s in my book.

I liked to stay at home as well as staying at school because at home you can sleep for long and at school you get to learn and you can play games.I love school,school is the bomb.The most fun thing about camp is at the end you get to play and swim the whole day.

Duffy show

duffy.pngOn Wednesday we had to go to a duffy show. We were walking to assembly and I thought In my head that ‘this duffy show is going to be boring’ why do we even have to go but when we sat down it looked like assembly is not going to be boring after all. I will explain three main ideas about the amazing duffy show.We got to assembly and sat down then saw the kids laughing because one of the girls from the duffy show was playing simon sezz and she got it wrong.

The girl told us her name it was Siana and their was another girl but I forgot her name but the interesting thing about her is that she was going to be lots of different extraordinary characters and the boy was going to be duffy Then the show began.Duffy walked in to assembly with his book then sat down and started to read his amazing
book then Siana jumped out of one side of duffy and said ‘hey duffy’ then Siana’s friend jumped out of the opposite side and said the same thing ‘hey duffy’.

They got up and started to sing a song which is the duffy song then Siana’s friend started to act as a reading manager, a guest and lots of other characters.Siana was not good at reading and she didn't even like reading but when duffy heard that Siana was not good at reading he started to get really worried.Duffy helped Siana to read then she loved  to read and Duffy should be proud.

I liked how Siana friend act because she was really funny and kind also I reckon that she should be proud of herself because she done really well and also Siana and duffy. I felt happy when the show was finish I know that duffy show’s are not boring after all.I liked how Siana’s friend tried to act as Siana’s mum.She was awesome.

I learned that it is important to read because when I go to college I will learn better,get a good report and get a good education.I think will go to every duffy show we have in our school.
