Kite Day

On Saturday my parents and I went to the Orakei Marae because it was Kite day. Kite day is a Maori Traditional celebration. This is an event that is part of  Matariki. There were lots of people there that were flying kites , selling food , jewelry and other crafts.

As soon as I got there I bought myself a plate of hangi food. there was also a stage with people dancing and singing. Then my Mum headed over to the information tent to get us a kite. We walked over to where everyone was flying their kites.

We saw a very large whale , a huge teddy bear and a massive  squid. Also there were all kinds of  shaped kites including an alien on a  spacecraft!!! When we tried to fly our kite it kept twirling around and down into the ground ,no luck! We will definitly be going back next year because it was so nice to see smiles on everyones faces!!!

Go for Gold

 Can you guess what Pt england school did on Monday? We had a Immersion assembly. Because we just came back from a two week holiday. Our Theme for this term is Go For Gold. Basically it’s about the London Olympics because the London Olympics are coming up. And also its about perseverance and practicing to be a champion. People participate in the London Olympics games. Even a 11 year old girl entered for gymnastics she was amazing because she practiced and practiced and practiced then she became a famous gymnast.

Team 1 inspired us in believing in yourself that you can do it and that you will need to practice running or what ever you like to do and no remember to keep on trying.
Team 2 gave us some special facts about a famous runner,boxer,gymnast and a horse rider. They told us that many years ago that no women could not enter the olympics because people would think that the men would win and the women will louse.And that was not fear.

I really did like Team 3 because they showed some real action because Mrs lavakula had a friend fight with Mr Barks and Mrs Lavakula won against Mr Bark's and Mr barks got scared so he ran away and never returned.These three teams were the best.
