The Best memories ever for 2013

In 2013 I got to spend a magnificent time with my amazing classmates and my very fun and unique teacher Miss Tito. I was very lucky to have Miss Tito as my Teacher. She is very cool. Sometimes When we some kids from our class have been good they get to go on the stars list. So at the end of the week we get to do something fun. Mostly we get to make a maori instruments like Koauau. It is so fun.


Because the year eights arę leaving to go to college at the end of the year. I would like to say that I will miss you year eights especially Andrea and Te Rina because I have became close friends with them. They arę really cool and really funny to hang out with.


I will really miss Miss Tito next year because she told us that we were not going to be in her class next year. I was really sad because Miss Tito is the best teacher I Have ever had so bye Miss Tito. She will still be there with us next year woo hoo.


What I am looking forward to next year is being the house captain for Te Arawa. Because I can be a better leader and represent my family and myself. I can also learn how to be more confident in being a role model and also being a leader. I will be looking forward to being a year eight next year a t Pt England School.


In 2014 I will be leaving Pt England School. I have learnt a lot of things from all of my teachers for the past years. But mostly I have learnt from Mr Burt My Amazing Principal. I will miss this wonderful place when I leave to go to college.

Anameis Reflection about our incredebly cool netbooks

The first time I used a netbook was when I was a year 5. I was so excited.We can learn from all of these apps and we actually can have fun when we learn. 

Having a netbook connected to the internet has helped me alot because there are alot of learning sites like Math Whizz ,Study ladder ,Xtra Math and more that can help you learn. We can have alot of fun while we are learning. Having the Internet has been really helpful because for the past few years I have searched up recipes and it's just cool to search something and the answer right in front of you. 

During this year my teacher Miss Tito has helped me along the way to be a better leader. Because last year i was bossy but this year I have learned how to be better leader. In room 15 one of my friends Gloria taught me how to put a presentation onto my Blog. That was very helpful.


My Mum and Dad have shown me how to use a different and easier strategy for maths. During 2013 I have grown in managin myself. Definitely Next year i will be working on the following:



  • Writing
  • Maths
  • Our Topic
  • Reading
  • Being a better Role Model
  • Controling myself in better ways

Action world

Can you guess where the year sevens got up to on Friday?
We went to Action World out in Henderson! It was the year sevens big day out.
8:20 am we finally departed from pt england school. It took 15 or 20 minutes to get to our destination. It felt like hours. On our way to Action world we were all singing song and playing sweet and sour.

When we finally arrived at action world we all got split up into groups and headed of with our teachers to our first event.  Our group went to the rock climbing wall first. I volunteered to go first. I tried to reach the top but my hands were aching in pain. So I deliberately fell of and landed safely on the soft air bag on my back. Once everybody had a turn we moved over to the jungle swings it was so fun.

Henry went first but he has too scared he has acting like a baby. So instead I went I volunteered to go. I used my super stretchy monkey arms to reach the next bar. We were supposed to jump over something but the time ran out to we just landed safely on our back. Everybody had a turn before the whistle was blown for us to switch over.

We then moved over to the crazy ladder. It was crazy all right. It was moving all over the place most of us did not even make it to the top. Once we were finished on the crazy ladd we moved over to the jump and slide. It was awesome. I chose to jump first and then have fun on the slide. When I went on the slide it was like a building was falling over. I went on the slide like 10 times and the jump 7 or 8 times.

After that we had lunch and then we had free time. It was awesome that put up the fighting bridge. Me and Yixin had a cool as fight. I took it easy on her. I deliberately jumped off the bridge.
We then had time to jump on the Large Trap eez it was so fun.

Then it has time to say goodbye to action world and their staff. It was  sad that we had to leave but at least we had a good time. Thankyou action world.

Nelson Mandela A Hero

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela ( A.K.A  Nelson Mandela) born 18 july 1918. He was born in Mvezo, Transkei, South Africa. For 20 years, he directed a campaign of peaceful, nonviolent defiance against the South African government and its racist policies. Mandela's father died (of tuberculosis) when the boy was nine years old.  



1938 Mandela is admitted to the University of Fort Hare, a black institution. Two years later he got expelled for being in a protest. While attending Fort Hare University (studying for a Bachelor of Arts degree) Nelson Mandella met two men who were to become close friends and influences in his life. One was Oliver Tambo and the other was Kaiser 'K.D' Matanzima. Matanzima was in line for the Transkei throne. He did not make his Bachelor of arts Degree.

He went to three different prison's. They are Robben island , then in pollsmoor prison then in victor vester prison. Nelson Mandela fought threw all odds to serve africa. Mandela politician who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. Nelson Mandela was struggling with apartheid. Mandela spent 18 years on Robben Island. He had to do hard labour. He was allowed one visitor every 6 months. He then has moved to a different prison. Mandela became the most famous prisoner in the world. He did not give up. Even the prison guards admired him

At last the 1988 the south african government began to make some changes. The goverment let Black or coloured people into White people universities. In 1990, South Africa's new President FW de Klerk set Nelson Mandela free. Mandela and de Klerk agreed: no more fighting.
In 1991 Mandela became the leader of the ANC. For the first time Black people were allowed to vote for the very first time. ANC won the elections.
Then a new goverment took over. In 1994 Nelson Mandela became the very first Black President of South Africa.
Nelson Mandela died on 5 December 2013 following a lung illness.Mandela is in Peace now where he can be proud.  I learnt that Nelson Mandela had   a dream and he never gave up on that dream so never ever give up.   R.I.P  Nelson Mandela

Well everyone had to do a Cross Country run. I saw the little kids run first they were really fast. After that I watched the year 5 and 6s  Go Go I shout. They then announce the year 7 girls I am very nervous.

All of the year 7 girls lined up at the starting line. “On your mark get set go” Mr Burt says. At first I sprint but then I start to run out of breath so I take small steps sort of like a mini jog. I jog with Hope and Flora we run down to the corner of the field cross over the other side of the field and run along the side of the field. I could hear everyone else cheering for me and my mates.

We run around the reserve I am now running out of breath but I will not give up. I run through the water. Mr Marks is cheering me on. In the distance I can see Miss Squares. Idive through the water. I am nearly finished my first lap I run around on my second lap. I sprint this lap.

At the end of the run. There is the finish line waiting for me I sprint. As I run through the finish line and put my hands up and smile at the camera yeah I finished the race of properly I mimick to myself.

Movie reflection

At the start of the term the year sevens and eights got the chance to create wonderful movies. The theme was Love!!!  When my group heard them announce the theme we were so excited because most the songs nowadays arę about love.  I thaught of a perfect song that will suit love. The song we chose was And I Will Always Love You sung by Whitney Houston!
We created a plan and we thaught that it would work , But it didn't work.
The good thing was that we tried our hardest and the bad thing was that we never did get to finish our movie.

spoken word


Today joshua came to our school and he taught us about spoken word.These arę some ideas. He drew up a scribble on the board and wanted us to describe it. It looked like a bird a snake and a worm. There has also a hashtag and i thought it looked like noughts and crosses. It looked like graffitti.
I would like to  stand up to bullies.Last year a year 8 always used to bully me they embarrassed me and every laughed at me. If you walk to school it will save fumes from going into the air and less people have to breathe fumes. If everyone in the world dropped a piece of rubbish on the ground there wouldn't be anything left of the world.

Movie reflection


Yellow Hat - The things I enjoyed
The things that i have enjoyed throughout the whole time was that I had to do a lot of stunts. And most of them i got hurt but it has also funny.




Black Hat - Which things didn’t I like.
I didn't like the way that my group worked. We were all doing different things and we were not working as a team.




Green Hat - What was something interesting about this week.
All of the other groups were thinking outside of the box. I has a little bit jealous but that is alright.




White Hat - What did I learn.
I learnt that making a movie is way harder than taking a picture. And that if you work hard you can get the job done.




Blue Hat - What can I do better next time.

We could plan our story board a bit better. And that we could all work as a team.

Litracy rotation


Can you guess what the intermediate block have been doing? Everyday except for tuesday. We do something called a literacy rotation. There is a creative strand that is animation , film making and visual art. And a Literacy strand which is reading , and writing.

Last week I was in the filming and animating group. Htawara and I were animating a movie. The theme for all of our movies was michael jackson.We chose the song A.B.C sung by the Jackson 5 band. Htawara and I were struggling in our animation we didn't even get time to finish it.

When friday came along we got to watch all of the finished movies. I thought that all of the movies were spectacular (too bad my movie has not in there). I really enjoyed creating the movie and I hope I can get to do it again some other time.

I am in writing class. Mrs Lugitupu is teaching us writing. I started writing as soon as Mrs Lugitupu said to start. I like the topic of writing. .I am only halfway finished my story.

I really enjoy our Literacy Rotation in the morning because it gets our brain working If you check out my writing on my blog called Prometheus. Please write a comment on it. If you do write a comment on it your amazing and I will really appreciate it if you did that. I hope you enjoyed my recap on Literacy rotation bye!!!

Prometheus


It was a cold , dark , gloomy night.
I stumbled upon an abandoned hut deep in the heart of the forest. I was just about to enter the hut when suddenly an alien jumped out onto me.
I tried to fight it but it was too strong.


Then I stopped fighting, and the alien stopped .  I was absolutely terrified. We both settled down. The alien looked like a human but it was white, it had lots of muscles and it had black eyes. I called him Prometheus.


He spoke to me in  an Egyptian language. I could understand what he was saying. He told me that his planet Pitortheus is close to Earth and that he wanted to go back to Pitortheus. I had to tell him that someday he would be able to make his dream a reality..

Mini cross country


Last week most of the senior block went for a run. At first I thought we were all going to play capture the flag , but when we walked  to the end of the school I knew that we weren't going to play a game. We had to run along the fence line.

On your mark get set go! Ms Djamali said.
Everyone started running. It was a stampede running over me. I got back up and ran in the mud I did not realise that it was there. I fell in the mud and everyone laughed at me. They hurt my feelings.

I got back up and started running. I ran in front of my mates and left them all behind. I was wasted by the time I got to the end of the run. We ran past all of the horses and the cows.

We finally finished the ran and went back to class but I had to go to soccer practice;    I was so tired.

Rump (The true story of Rumpelstiltskin)
So far I am on the verge of reading a book. This book that I am reading is about a boy who was born too early.His Mum could barely tell him his real name and she said only a little bit of time left to live so she called him"Rump". His Mother died and his Dad died in the mines when they were digging for gold. In the Kingdom they take there names as a destiney. Everyone in the village makes fun of him because rump means cow butt.

What people say about me


Last term kids from room 19 had to wear a piece of paper on their back. We all had to walk around in class and other people have to write something positive about them. I am sure that my class wrote something positive because we arę all close like we're a family.

: One thing they said about me was that i am pretty awesome.
I feel so happy that someone said something nice about me.Another thing was that someone told me I have a great voice. I feel so Majestic.
Someone said that i have great hair styles  i think i am  the  best at hair styles. I feel great !
