Cool Kiwis


Would you call a Kiwi beautiful? I know I wouldn’t. Its plumage is dark and dull and stiff like dog hair. The Kiwi feathers is not like other birds. The most ridiculous thing about it is it’s bill, it can grow up to 20cm long.


Did you know Kiwi’s are fast? They have really strong, powerful leg, that can out run a human. They use their legs to fight other predators like weasels, stoats, cats, rats, ferrets and also dogs.

Kiwis use their strong leg to dig up a burrow, which is used to lay their eggs in. Some times they build it in a log or under the roots of a big tree. Each of the burrows are about three metres long.


And there you have it how can you possibly resit a flightless,

ridiculous, wrinkled winged, chicken sized, burrow building species.

Cross Country Race


Oh my gosh I cant believe it, Cross Country is on today. I have been hoping this day wouldn't come but here it is, I keep saying to myself why, why does it have to be today.

Oh no, standing there while biting my nails I stepped up to the start line. I hate to say it but I feel like screaming and spewing all at the same time. "BANG" everyone ran, this is my worst nightmare ever because I'm to afraid I will come last.

Oh no, this isn't good I think I'm going to be sick and to make it worse there's a big muddy patch ahead. As I make my way past Ms Glaze trying to take a breath, I suddenly felt gooey mud between my toes. I didn't care I just kept running.

I finally make my way to the finish line, WOW! I can't believe it,I did it, I actually ran that big long race with no stich at all, I am so proud of myself.

Even though I have a aching back, sore legs, and a felling of a broken ankle I feel like I came first.

Maratime Museum


On Thursday the 29th of July, room's 17 and 16 went on a trip to the Maritime Museum.
When we got there, the educator told us a couple of rules before we went inside. One of the groups went on the boat first, which was called the Ted Ashby, while the others went to see a movie about how the first Polynesians came to New Zealand.
Not long after that we went with a lady who told us how to tie two pieces of sticks together with a piece of string, it was in a shape of a square.
The last activity we went to was Salty Sam he took us on a tour around the museum we even got to take a picture in the boat that we saw.On the Ted Ashby we travelled under the harbour bridge we saw some people doind their work on the top.

Kapa Haka at the Auckland Museum


Have you ever done a performance in front of a audience?

Well performing in front of a audience is scary at first, I know I get scared of performing in front of people. The reason the Pt England kapahaka group performed is so they could start the opening of the Auckland Museum movie competition, it was Ms King's class that entered the movie competition with a great movie about changing through out the years and that people are still important to you.

Calling up the finalist was a young lady called Kiesha Castle-Hughes who was once a little girl on Whale Rider. She called up heaps of schools but she didn't call Pt England's catagory. Pt England did come first in one section, winning a camera followed by heaps of other tech stuff.

I've never felt so amazed after watching the performance.

Do you know what a compound word is?

Today we finally finished our paper mache project, can you try guess what it is? We had to create a compound word. Here are some clues that can help you:
1. There is a yummy jelly tip on the roof of the cake.
2. There is a delicious banana cake in the middle.
3. It also has a chocolate cake at the bottom.
4. It has a green saucer
5. It has a dark blue candle.
6. The handle has several different flavours.

Have you guessed, if you want to have a try comment me.

Valentines


On Sunday, June the 6th me and my family went to Valentines to celebrate my dad's birthday, It was my first time there so I didn't know what to do.


I said to my mum when do we get our food because I'm hungry, she said you get the food yourself. The most food I ate was the oysters and corn chips, me eating the desert was sickening but I still eat it because it was yummy. The only desert I ate was the chocolate moose and the chocolate and vanilla log (cake) and the chocolate and vanilla ice-cream.

Iron Brian Comes to Visit Pt England


On Wednesday the fifth of May, Iron Brian came to visit Pt England. He told us about how healthy red meat was.

There were four food groups, Meat and Meat Alternatives, Milk and dairy products, fruit and veges and breads and cereals.

Iron Brian said we could eat burgers if we wanted one after the show. We played some of Iron Brian's favourite games, one game was the exercise boggy but we played that last. The other game I didn't know what it was called, but we had to memorise the four groups, say two of them and if we got the question right we got a prize. The choices were a hat, hackeysack or a wrist band which you could snap on.

Day at Tamaki College

On Friday we had been invited to the Tamaki gym when Mr Borland took us for games. Mr Borland played a game but I don't know what it is called, we had to try get the hole class across the gym with long benches.
We had to start again five times Mr Borland said he would give us some advice he said that he would choose some one to lead us through and we had to be super silent.
After we had finished we played octopus but we played it a different way, every time that you get tagged you had to sit down and tag other people on your bottom, but we could still move around.
On the first round I was one of the last to get tagged. Then Mr Borland said that we had enough time to have one more round on that round I was really lucky because I was one of the people who came first.

This Term's Topic-Active Earth

This term we are learning about Volcanoes and Earthquakes.
I know that the molten rock in the earth is magma, and when comes out of the volcano it is lava. The colour of the lava is like a really orangey colour because it is so hot. It looks like fire.
I read about the plates as well. They are big pieces of ground that move. When they move it can cause an earthquake, sometimes this causes a tsunami.
