Manakalani Film

Yesterday I enjoyed the  Manaiakalani Film Festival 2012, Manaiakalani is a movie that is made from different kind of school in this community.  Poor Hosannah and Naomi because they had to stay at Sylvia Park from 8:00am - 3:30 pm. They were representing our class movie, and the school!
My favorite movie of all times was by room 18 entitled , "The Test! with funny actors and really funny facial expressions. What I loved about this film is that they are great actor and I loved the camera shots.

The Photo

The Marist under-12 rugby team had to get their photo taken. We waited for 2 boys to come but they ended up
not coming.
When we walked into the room, there were chairs and the photographer waiting for us. He came up to our coach and said, "Hello and asked what team are we?"

When he took our photo the first time we forgot, one more person should be there, it was the assistant coach. Then one of our players ran and looked for him. He came in and he said, “Sorry about that, I forgot.”.
When we finally took our photo everybody looked beautiful and good-looking in their uniform.


Stomach Churning

“What a  lovely day”, said  Kate, The sun shining through her bedroom window and right into her eyes.
Ring, ring! She picked up her mobile phone and answered it, it was her friends Mary and Kelly they told her that she was invited to the Rainbow’s End, then Kate rushed to her mother’s room and asked if she could go, her mother replied “ummm, ok Better be home by 9.45 o'clock”. 

She called up her friends and say she was ready to come and to pick her up, they replied “ok”. 

When they got there Kate said  “Wow”  this is so big and exciting”. When they were riding the roller coaster, they went up and down an their stomach felt like it was going to burst. When the roller coaster stopped all there eyes felt crazy.
“It was spectacular,” Mary said, “I want to do that again!”. I screamed.

Even the younger children can understand that smoking is bad for their body. Your chances of getting disease are greater if you smoke. 

It important to keep talking to kids about the dangers of tobacco and smoking..

Inspire Me

Valerie Adams inspires me by the way she practices her shot puts every day
and the way she wins lots of medals.When she was 14, she started taking part in a school competition and being seen by Kirsten Hellier.

When she had her relationship with Kirsten Hellier she broke up with him and a few months they became friends, a few years later Kirsten Hellier was Valerie Adams adviser/coach.

Valerie Adams was born on the 6th of October,1984, in Rotorua which is in New Zealand, to a tongan mother( Lilika Ngauamo) and an English father (Sydney Adams) but the sad thing is that her mother passed away when Valerie was 16 years old.

Losing The Keys!!

Earlier that day I went to school. On the way I went to the shop to buy my lunch. Sandwiches looked delicious, so I bought a chicken one. Yum, I couldn’t wait for lunchtime! While walking past the patrollers I had a feeling that something was lost. Weird, I should be thinking about seeing my friends but I couldn’t get rid of this feeling.

I put my hand in the pocket that should have had my key in. It was gone! I ran back towards the shop but the bell rang. I turned around and came to class. I told my teacher that my key was gone. He said, “Too bad, Too sad. You have writing to do.”

All day I worried about my key. It felt like it was all I could think of. Morning tea, lunch came and went. I couldn’t stop being anxious.
Finally, the bell rang. I dashed to the shop. I searched on the floor, no luck! I asked the shopkeeper if she had seen a key. I described the key to her. It was gold, solid gold. The design was in the shape of a flower and it was as long as a carrot, (Not a really big or really small carrot. One that was bite-size.)

She produced, under the counter, a large, plastic bag of keys. She said, “All these keys have been lost in my shop. Let’s have a look.” So, she tipped all of them out onto the counter. There was my key. I was so excited I hugged her. It must have fallen out of my pocket when I paid for my sandwich. Next time I will keep my key in a safe place.

Thanks to Vanila for editing my work.!!

Art Alive


This term we have been learning about art in room 19. We have been painting and learning about Van Gogh, Picasso, Henri Matisse, Monet and an artist from New Zealand, Danielle Hulme. We have been learning to paint like them using line and colour.

I have enjoyed learning about Van Gogh because his paintings look real. His use of brushstrokes and colour captures a moment in time.

This picture show Van Gogh shoes in 1886.

Treaty of Waitangi

The treaty of waitangi s a treaty first signed on 6 February 1840 by representatives of the British Crown and various Māori chiefs from the North Island of New Zealand.The Treaty established a British Governor of New Zealand, recognised Maori ownership of their lands and other properties, and gave the Maori the rights of British subjects. The English and Maori versions of the Treaty differed significantly, so there is no consensus as to exactly what was agreed to. From the British point of view, the Treaty gave Britain sovereignty over New Zealand, and gave the Governor the right to govern the country. Maori believed they ceded to the Crown a right of governance in return for protection, without giving up their authority to manage their own affairs. After the initial signing at Waitangi, copies of the Treaty were taken around New Zealand and over the following months many other chiefs signed.
