My Birthday

My Birthday was great the amount of people who was alright but I said “at least someone came”. The night before Shontal and Reina stayed over for the night to decorate my room. When they finished that we cleared everything out of my room. Once that we completed that they brang my bed in so we have something to sleep on. I woke up really early because I was so excited. I ran into the kitchen I’ve seen my mum standing at the bench making our food for the day. I asked her if we can pick up Gabby so we did. I arrived at her house and it looked like she just woke up so she quickly ran into the shower. I told her that we will be back to pick her up. A little while later we went back to Gabby’s house she was ready so we went back to my house. When I went in my room I noticed that everything was set up and already to go. I brang the food in and out a movie a movie on up on the projector. Hours and hours went by a of a sudden I went into my sisters room I looked out the window and I saw two boy walking up road. I yelled out “TAMATI KALIM” and I ran outside introduced them into my house. “I thought that they weren’t coming” as I said but they did I could hear Shontal screaming her head off. The boys felt like they were the odd one out. Later on that day we went to the shop near my house the boys waited on a hill while Me and the girls went to the shop we sat on the hill for quite a while. We all went back to my house and it was starting to get really really hot. Shontal was playing with the hose then a while later everyone besides Tamati had a sqwert (water fight). Once that was finished Shontal and Reina went to the shop again and got us some fish and chip and some lollies. The went by so fast later on we went to the Park near my house and we saw Judah his sister and Charm and his sister and Raven and Tyler. We stayed there for a very long time later on the day Charm and all the other people went back to Judah’s house and me and everyone else stayed there until it was very late. Then Shontal,Kalim and Tamati went home and Gabby and Reina stayed over for the night. It was a really cool day I can’t wait for next year on my birthday.

Juinors Book Report Miss Spider's Tea Party

Miss Spider’s Tea Party is a great book for those younger children it is an awesome picture book as well. The book is about Miss Spider. She tried to set up a tea party but no one wanted to come. But at the end some insects ended up coming. Then Miss Spider was really happy. It is a really good book because it rhymes and it helps you with your counting. I think it will be a great book for the younger people to read.

The Girls' Day Out at Sylvia Park

In the holidays Shontal, Julie, Reina and I decided to have a girls day out at Sylvia Park. We all met each other at the train station. While we were waiting for the train to come, the voice on the loud speaker explained to everyone that the train to Sylvia Park would be delayed. People were moaning because we were there for almost an hour. Later on that morning the girls and I were going to have a race. We got ready to race , I really wanted to win. But then the train was coming.


We entered the train. In front of me I noticed a group of people gathering. They were all standing because there were no seats. The train headed off. We turned to corner. While the train was turning Reina fall over. Julie, Shontal and I were laughing so hard that my stomach hurt.


We finally arrived at Sylvia Park. The girls and I were walking around in and out shops. I brought a jersey and a pair of jandals. It was 12:26 when we decided to go to the movies.


First we flicked through the movies to see what we should watch. We came across Despicable Me. Reina had not seen the movie. So we all agreed to watch it. Julie and Shontal brought our tickets. We were in the Xtreme -Screen at seats 30-33. Shontal and Julie brought us a packet of Skittles and Maltesers. A while later the movie started. When the movie finished we went into the arcade room.


We noticed a photo booth. So we quickly took a couple of photos. I saw a game called grab a toy. I won a brown fluffy teddy bear.


That day was very cool. The funniest part was when Reina fell over. I was just full of laughter.

Our Boardgame Friut island



Gabrielle, Ocean, Mui and myself have beencreating a board game using one of the Multiple intelligences. We used Visual/spatial which is Art smart. It was based on a story about fruit called 'Fruit Island'. We started off with drawing our plan which I did and Mui drew our plan onto cardboard. Once that was finished Gabrielle, Ocean and myself helped to colour it in. Then Mui came up with a great idea to put blue vivid on the outsides to make it stand out. I created the little objects to move like a counter. We had a creative way to design the a dice it was like a twister board but with numbers and an arrow in the middle so it can point at a number. Mui then wrote the instructions down in a cardboard cut out. maybe you would want to play it. After everything was done we tested it out.Here is some pictures of what it looks like.

Immersion Assemblies

An Immersion Assembly is when all of our teachers dress up to support our new topic for the term. We have an Immersion Assembly the first day of every term.


The most memorable Immersion Assembly for me was ‘Dino Might’. It was spectacular because all of the teachers costumes were very creative. I think the best dressed teacher was Miss Lavakula because she was a paleontologist and she was looking for fossils .


My favorite Immersion Assembly was ‘Get In Behind’ because Mr Burt used a tractor to make himself look like a farmer and also cardboard cutouts of sheep behind the truck to make it look like a farm. It is was very funny.


The next topic I would like to learn about is illnesses and medication. I really cant wait until the next Immersion Assembly because they are fun.

My Mum

My mum is one of a kind. She is supportive and also helpful. My mum has many different jobs besides being a mother to 6 children. She used to work as a smokefree coach and also a HPV health promoter. Her job now is to raise cervical cancer awareness.

My mum is multi talented. She is a weaver and she creates baskets,flowers actually different kind of flowers and also bags and mats with harakeke (flax). She has showed our family so when she needs help with her raranga classes asked our family.

Activities with Mr Ballin

This term our class has been going to Tamaki Collage for some games ans challenges with Mr Ballin every Friday.

Last week we did a games to start off with.We played Blob it is when you have to pick a panther hold hands.Then people have to run around and the people that are in they have to tag all the other people.


Once that was finish we did a challenge our panthers had to do face to face but across the gym one person on the other side of the gym and the other one had to go across the other side of the gym.We had to make a leader and then we had to run in between each other.But there was a twist if we put both of our feet in between two people then we have to start again.


When that challenge was finished we went to the back of the gym and then over to the school meare by the deck.Then Mr Ballin came us instructions for another challenge.There are two chairs in the middle of the grass and we had a platform.The challenge was for our whole class to get over to the other side of the chairs that is in the middle of the grass.But there was another twist.The platform that we had it wasn’t allowed to touch the grass or the chairs that were on the grass.We all talk about what we were going to get our class to the other side of the chairs.


Our plan was to hang the platform off the side of the and have some people hold the end of the platform.Then people walk over and jump off the end of it to the other side.We all did the same thing then most of our class got over but then Raven was the last person to come it wasn’t easy for him because the other people had to hold the platform for him but then we weren’t finished we had to bring the platform over to the side that we were at.When we did that we all celebrated with cheering and laughter.


We all had fun and we were all talking about how we could improve it and how awsome it was completing it.I myself had fun I love going down to Tamaki Collage it is fun.

Here is a little movie about what we did at Tamaki Collage with Mr Ballin.

Mt Taranaki Legend DLO

This term we are learning about Active Earth. 

We looked at a movie and it was about Mt Taranaki.  Our class had to retell the legend any way we wanted to.

I had a group full of girls, they were Gabby, Etta, Ocean and myself.  We worked really well and we completed it on time. 

We used green screen with puppets but the green screening didn't work out right.  We still finished it on time and we learnt that next time we wont use green screen.

I'm proud of my group and our mark, it was 17 out of 25.  I learnt from my mistakes and for the next DLO it will be better than this one!

Here is our assessment rubric for the Mt Taranaki DLO
