Imaginative Recount Writing

Yesterday I went up into a plane and went Skydiving. I went Skydiving because I wanted to try something new. After that we were way up into the sky I could almost see every single mountain there and I was starting to get nervous. After some time I got strapped into my parachute and I looked outside and the clouds looked like cotton candy.

Suddenly I decided that I was going to jump so I braced myself and jumped out of the plane and I felt like there was no gravity. Not long after that I pulled my parachute and when I pulled it, it felt like all the ice and wind had hit me in my face.

Then I really started to go down and I started to panic because I just remembered that I was terrified of heights. Then I tried to call out to the people in the airplane to help me back up into the plane. They said that they can’t do that so I had to go down all by myself.

When I was close to the ground I saw a lot of rocks and I thought that I was going to hit into one but luckily I didn’t. When I landed on the ground I had to start running so I could slow down.

I really had fun in the end and I recommend doing Skydiving if you have the chance.

Animation Voice Over

Animation Voice Over

Walt be thoughtful about links between oral (spoken), written, and visual language features to give purpose to our writing.
Walt form and express ideas.
Walt edit our writing for correct punctuation and sentence types.

Your animation task: This term you have been creating an animation based around the four forces of flight and how they work together to make an object of your choice fly.

Your voice over task: Using your animation plan to help you, write a voice-over to go with your animation. Remember to use specific vocabulary and ideas you have learned this term.

My animation shows a plane going into the air and flying using force and flight. The four forces are weight/gravity, thrust, drag, and lift. My airplane is flying because the lift is more than the weight/gravity and the thrust is more than the drag. Planes can still move forwards if all four force are the same because if the lift and the gravity are the same than the plane would be a bit in the middle. Now I am going to explain the four forces. First is lift. Lift is a force that helps something to go up. For example, an airplane. The second force is weight/gravity. Weight/gravity is when something like a plane gets pulled down to Earth. Then after that is thrust. Thrust helps something go forward. Last but not least is drag. Drag helps something to go backwards. Thanks for watching.

Matariki Writing

Last week on Friday Pt England school had a very fun Matariki day. In the morning on friday rooms 9 and 10 sat on there mat and got into our groups for Matariki. While Miss west called the names for groups I felt excited but nervous at the same time. The groups were Movie making, cooking, sports, and crafts but I was in the sports.

When I was walking to sports in the hall I saw some dodgeballs set up and I was excited. Not long after that all of the sports group divided into 3 groups one of the groups went to cooking the second group went to ki o rahi and the third group stayed and played dodgeball. When the two other groups left to do their things we were having fun playing so dodgeball. Suddenly Mr Moran changed it up a little he said the we have to start on our tummies and crawl to the line then we could stand up but if we didn’t touch the line you had to stay on your tummy.

After a while we rotated and we went to cooking we split up into three groups again two of the groups would be making so rice bubble cupcakes and my group was making pikelets. The thing that I did when we were making pikelets was flipping and putting chocolate chips on them while they were cooking. After that we all started to eat the pikelets and it was so yummy because the chocolate chips were melting in my mouth.

I really hope that next year I can be in the sports group again because it was so fun to just play around and it was yummy to eat the pikelets.

40 Hour Famine

Today me and some of my friends went to our schools 40 Hour Famine. Before I went to 40 hour famine I had to pack my toothbrush and toothpaste and also some night clothes. Then me my mum and my little brother went to the 40 hour famine. We did  it to raise money for some kids in south Sudan that don't have a lot of money.

 When we got there we went inside and I saw 4 of my best friends there names are Norah jade, Madison, Oalii, and Eva. While I walked into the library I saw every one sitting down so I quickly put my bag on the girls side and joined everyone. After some time Miss Lagitupu put all of us into groups the group that I was in was the red team. Not long after that we went to practises our dance so we could go on the stage and preform.

Once everyone was ready to preform we all wen to the hall and sat down. Then Miss Lagitupu told us that the people in the front of the lines to stand up and do rock paper scissors and the winner got to chose which group goes first and so on. My group lost at the game but we still went last went we got up on stage I was exited to show our dance to everyone.

After all the dances they told us that the red group won and me and my group where screaming with excitement. After all of that was done some of us went to Creative space some people went to go and watch a movie the movie was A Lego movie it and some of us just wanted to play a game called cluedo.

After some time we  all went into the library and Miss Lagitupu told all of us that it was bedtime so we all got into our sleeping bags and went to sleep. I had a very good time at 40 hour famine with all of my friends I hope that I get the opportunity to do this again next year.

Narrative Writing

One sunny morning my roster woke all of the animals up. Soon after that one of my rabbits had realised that I had left the door to the barn open so they went on a little walk. While they were walking they started to get hungry but they had forgotten which way the barn was so they kept walking. After some time the donkey and the cow started to get tired but luckily bunnies got to them just before they fell asleep. Not long after that all of the animals were really thirsty but there was no water, all they wanted now was to just go home and relax. Suddenly they heard water sounds coming from the opposite direction they were walking in so they came and it was there big water bucket it had lots and lots of water in it. First was the little animals then ended with the really big bull. But there was something even better behind the water bucket it was the barn after all the walking they had finally all had a drink and some food and also a nice long rest. I don’t think that will ever go on another walk by them self's again.  

 Today we had to show what we could write when we have 40 minutes to write without talking to others. We where able to work quietly to complete the task.

Miss West's and Mrs Moala's Experiment

 Research: While I was watching the video that Miss west and Miss Moala made for us I knew it was about physics, gravity and science. I did some research and found out that gravity is a thing that makes sure that we don’t float away. I also found out that physics is just like science.

Hypothesis: My Hypothesis is that if I drop the heavy ball it will hit the ground faster than the pretty ball because it is heavier than then the pretty ball.

Procedure: First you have to ask yourself questions about gravity then you have to get a ball. then you have to get a ball and then you stand on a chair, after that you put the balls on at the same height then drop it at the same time.

What happened (Results): The big ball and the small ball hit the ground at the same time when Miss Moala dropped it. 

Conclusion: The big ball and the small ball hit at the same time. Maybe because Miss Moala didn't drop it at the same time. Maybe Miss Moala dropped one before the other and that might be the reason that they hit at the same

Choose It Narrative

Once upon a time there was a girl named Madi. Madi decided to go for a walk. While she  was walking she got sucked up into a portal that took her to a school that was on the edge of Auckland. When she reached  the school, she saw some people in the window. So she went to go see what was happening. Not long after that, Madi saw people stealing chromebooks and putting them into a hot air balloon. She didn’t know what to do so she called some of her friends. Their names were Norah-jade and Jane. After some time her friends showed up and went to have a little look out the window  to see if all the things that Madi said were true. When they looked in the window they couldn't see anything. Just then Norah spotted evil villains in a hot air balloon so we made our own hot air balloon to catch up with them. When we went up in the air we could see them just above us so we went higher and then we were right next to them. Suddenly they decided to go higher than us so they went up up and away. They were right on top of us but then a miracle happened they dropped all the chromebooks and they all landed right inside our hot air balloon. After a while we went back to the school and put them back where they were supposed to be.

Fia Fia Recount

After a while the Samoan group went to the side of the stage so we could perform but at the same time I was pretty excited and scared. While we were waiting to get on stage all of the Samoan group were really wet and cold so we put some baby oil on us so we could be a little bit warmer.

Finally it was the Samoan groups turn to perform. When I was on stage I could see almost all of my family in the crowd and I could also see three of my little cousins and one of them was sleeping. When we were on the stage we all did our dance gracefully and we went all out. While I was on stage I felt like I did well and I also felt proud of myself. After some time I heard people screaming and cheering for us and that made me really happy.

After our dance finished we went off the stage and back to our changing room and I could hear the crowd all still cheering and clapping. After all of that I thought that it was really good and I felt happy and proud.

I think that I would love to this again and I hope that the next time we do another fia fia that it will not rain.

Immersion Assembly Recount

In the morning of the first day back to school after the holiday, the students and teachers of Pt england school went into the hall and had an Immersion assembly. Once we all sat down we did the karakia and Mihi then Team one showed there movie that they made. it was about how Team one is learning about movement made by simple tools.

After team one was team two and they acted it out. It was really funny. The act was about how team two is learning about wheels in motion. The thing that I liked in team two’s act was the music. It was cool and fun to dance to.

After some time it was team three’s turn to show what they were learning about. They made this really cool and fun movie. It was about the physics of sports. Their movie was so cool and they also had a lot of cool songs and dance moves.

Finally it was team five’s turn to show what they are learning about. Team five is learning about strength they acted it all out. It was some funny teachers playing tug of war, but then they had to put gloves on then on the other team had to put some slippery dish soap.
My favorite team had to be team five’s act. It was so funny and whenever one of the team wins the other team falls on the ground. Me and my friends were laughing so much that we couldn’t stop.

Sentence Types

Behind my house there is a scary old pipe. The pipe is long green and it has graffiti all over it. My older brother told me a story about that scary old pipe and now whenever I see it I think about all the scary things that my brother told me. My brother said that a long long time ago there lived two troll on both ends of the pipe and kids use to walk across the pipe just to get home. As they crossed the pipe the kids would lose their balance for no reason and fall down into the mucky, sticky, smelly creek underneath and disappear.

All the adult in the neighborhood went out looking everywhere for the kids but they were nowhere to be seen, and my brother told me that at night when the wind is blowing you can hear the kids crying in the pipe. That night I went to sleep and it was a windy stormy night as I was lying in my bed I could hear a whistling noise coming from the pipe I got really scared and couldn’t really sleep.

In the morning I asked my mum if the story that my brother told me was true and she said your brother is just trying to scare you but I heard the scary noises coming out of the pipe just like he said, but mum said that when the wind blows through the pipe it makes a whistling noise just like a flute and I said what a relief.

This was my writing that I did and I highlighted it green because that was a compound sentence.

Year 5/6 Camp

Last week on Wednesday we had our annual year 5 and 6 camp at Pt England school.
On Tuesday we had to bring our big bag and put it in the hall and I was the very first
one in my team, which is green machine to bring my big bag. The next day I woke up
in the morning and got into my mufti and went to school and went to the school hall.
There I found every on sitting on the floor and looking and listening to the person that
was speaking. After a while when they let us go we went to this activity called killer zone,
it  was being taught by M.R J and his assistant. The first thing you had to do was that
you had to fit everyone on to this platform, then we had to get these wooden square
shaped boards and we had to get to the other side. After that we got to chuck water
balloons at each other and I hit most of them, After a minute or two we had to go
and get into these thing that you put your feet in and walk until you get to the and
that was really hard. Then we went under a platform and then had to throw all of
the tennis balls on the other team's space then had to throw gumboots on it .

It was the funniest experience of 2018 I can’t wait until next year.

Dictation race

Today was meant to be the picnic. Sadly, it was raining today which meant we couldn't go! Miss West had packed her hat, sunblock and towel. Hopefully we will get to go to the picnic later in  this term as it is nice to go swimming and enjoy the sun at our very own beach!

Today room 10 did a very fun game called Dictation race, the rules of the game where that the person that has the chromebook has to sit down and the other person had to go behind the screen and telling their partner what is said and the full stops and capital letters and all that stuff. Me and my partner Madi came second.

Untie The Human Knot Recount Writing

Today, before we started writing, rooms 9 and 10 went outside to go and play a game called untie the human knot. Firstly the teacher explained  the rules one of the rules where that you were not allowed to let go of the hand that you were holding. You had to grab a random person's hand and don’t let go, The aim of the game is to untie the knot without letting go of the hands. When we went outside we created a circle in our color group red,orange,yellow,green, blue and
Purple I am in the red team by the way. Soon after that we grabbed someone's hand and tried to get out it was super hard, we had to keep twisting and turning it kind of hurt but not too much and we came second out of all of rooms 9 and 10 but orange came first. Then Miss west told the orange team and red team do one huge one while all the other teams were still going. We tried going under each other but it didn’t work, so we tried going under but that didn’t work either so we went around under and over and it kinda worked but there where only 5 people standing the wrong,  we all thought it counted. then it was time to go back to our classes I had a really good time playing and a good time writing about it.
