Prizing Giving

Last night I went to prize giving. It was so cool! I was in two items. The pounamu group and the item that I was doing with the year 5’s . The year fives were first to perform - after the Pounamu group had welcomed everyone, so I had to change as fast as I could.

As I was changing into my clothes I was so nervous to perform in front of my friends and  family. When I finished changing I had a little practice with the girls.

As I walked up onto the stage I saw my mum, my dad , my aunt and my nana. I was so shy that I always looked down to  the floor. I really wanted to do the pukana but then as I looked at my mum all I saw was her flashlight from her phone. Walking off the stage I ran as fast as I could to the library to get changed

Running into the doors of the hall I sat down sweating. Then all of a sudden I heard Mr Burt say “ now its time for the year five item!” and then I stood up again and got into my position. then i started dancing then my mum did it again! and saying my head “ I can’t wait to go back and sit down!”. When the performance finished Mr Burt took a long time to say the the names of the year six’s who were going to get a certificate or a little trophy from the sports awards.

2012 Manaiakalani reflecction

This year is totally different because I can share my stories with the world. Having a netbook is really cool because you can see what other people shared as well. I like commenting on other peoples blogs so it can help them think about how they should write or do their maths properly.

My learning has gone up a level on my  maths and reading. Maths is one of my favorite things to do in school and reading I enjoy as well. I love doing maths online and reading as well because there are all of these sites that you can go on.

2012 has surprised me because I have learned heaps of stuff I can do on the internet. Learning with a net book has changed everything that happens in school.

 I would've enjoyed playing more sports with my class.Like baseball, netball, cricket and basketball. Every term there is a sport that we play and there will always be somebody that will teach us how to play.

My goal for 2013 is to try and do .Having a netbook that goes online is really helpful because it really helps me .The best thing being a yr 5 is how to Learn Create and Share.

Friday, 23 November 2012


Manaiakalani is an education trust that helped Point Englanders get their own netbooks. I love my netbook because I can share anything I want to say, either on my blog or talk to others on email.  Manaiakalani didn’t just pay for our netbooks to play games or go on other stuff, they paid for it so we can learn and have a good education in the future.

So as a student from Point England School I would like to say thank you to all of the people from Manaiakalani and our parents who paid for our netbooks.

I was the first one to go for my team. I was so nervous that I had so much butterfly's in my stomach. But then I heard miss Ouano say "GO!" And when I heard that word I just ran my hardest. Then we came first!

 “Hi my name is James Watch me as I jump off of this swing and land on the slide.” I yelled like a professional. My friend gelously said behind the camera “What a show off” . " Sh! im trying to concentrate." I said angrily.

Taking a deep breath, I slowly swung back and forth. As my hands slipped off, I went flying in the air and sang in my head " I believe I can Fly"

But NEK MINNIT! BOOM! I crashed in to a tree and  down to the ground. I landed on my face! "Thats why I shouted don't be a show off" my friend laghed.

Halloween story

Aggressively, my brother and I were fighting over the bucket of Halloween lollies. “Let go you egg” I shouted. My face was red and angry. “Never” My brother cried. Letting go of the bucket quickly, I made my brother fall over. He went crying to my mum. “Thanks for the lollies” I said, laughing to myself.

Farewell Mrs Verry!

Mrs Verry was a very special lady from our community. She has been working at our school for nearly 20 years. We had a sad assembly on Friday because she was going to retire. She has known heaps and heaps of children from our school.
Mr. Burt told a story about Mrs. Verry and this was followed by a movie about her. It was about how she was the prettiest in the class room and it was made a long time ago. Then there was a Kapa Haka dance and then a Samoan dance. All of the teachers were all dressed in tiaras or rock star things. Guess why they were wearing that? because Mrs Verry is the Queen of bling. There was heaps of silly funny and crazy costumes. Mrs Verry had so many lays and lollie neaklacees that you couldn't even see the flower in her hair. WE WILL MISS YOU MRS VERRY!!!!!!

Well we were walking into the doors of the hall I saw some pictures on the stage. They were Kapai characters.  When I sat down I saw Tommy kapai! I was so excited. When he was talking he told us 5 lessons. 1 make 10 people smile a day. 2 war and violence is dumb. 3 learn how to forgive. 4 everybody is born with a gift. Last but not least you have to smile.

As we were getting near some more puddles, I realised that the track was dangerous. Jogging carefully down the slippery stairs I nearly slipped but luckily I held onto the tree. I was happily saved by the tree.

As I was running down the stairs, I nearly slipped. Luckily I was saved by my friend “a miracle I said.I realised that this track was really dangerous. Carefully running down the other set of stairs I still managed to fall on my bum. Ouch! here is her blog.

My Archery Movie

Here is a little movie that I made about archery hope you enjoy!

Liu Xiang 110m hurdles

Thinking in my head I better win this, my country relied on me to win this Olympic hurdle race. My goal for 2012 Olympic games is to try and not fall over the hurdles. As the starter said "take your marks get set go!" I was so nervous, I was sweating.

As soon as I got to the first hurdle I FElL DOWN! I crashed! “NO! THIS CAN’T BE HAPPENING!!” I said in my head I felt so annoyed and really angry. Sitting there for a little while I thought my country was depending on me but now they are really disappointed.

When I got up I hopped all the way to the entrance.  As I got there the security guard said “sorry you're not allowed to come this way” so I went back on the racetrack and I hopped all the way there. Hopping to the last hurdle I kissed it.  I got help from the other athletes to get to the finish line.

The Olympic torch

The Olympic flame started at the ancient Olympic games.The flame was first ignited at Olympia which is in Greece. At the closing of the Olympic games the flame is put out.

In Olympia they light the Olympic torch.The greeks have a big curved mirror which shines when you turn it to the sun .Women from Olympia are dressed in ancient robes and perform the ceremony.

The lighting of the Olympic torch is one of the most important thing at the opening ceremony. It will be there when all of the athletes play their sports.

term 3

Today is the first day of term 3. We had an assembly for our topic this term.Guess what our topic is for this term it's GO FOR GOLD. As I walked into the doors I saw every teacher dressed up as one of the people in the Olympics. It was really funny.

When I was watching the movies that the teachers made some of them were really funny and some of them were interesting. My favorite one is team 4’s movie it was really funny and the actor that I really liked was mr somerville's character.There movie was about the people who loves to swim and they really want to compete in the Olympics.

I really think that our topic name (GO FOR GOLD) is a really cool name because we have so many sports and when the rugby games or any other games that we play at Pt England we could just think about our topic and they will think in their head “I will go for gold and I will try my best” so this is one of the best topic name I have ever heard at Pt England.


This is one of the biggest pianos in the world!!!!!There is this man who plays the piano with his feet and guess what he is playing the super Mario song.The toy shop that he is in is one of the biggest toy shops in the world and it is in new York.I chose this video because it looked very cool.

My Art Reflection

This is a movie that my group made. ENJOY!!!!!

The Art Gallery

Walking into the doors of the art gallery all I saw were colours all over the place.The first thing I saw were the animals from room 5 and they were so cute. Stepping on to the stage, I saw the artwork of room 14. Their artwork is cool and it is very colorful.

But then I saw a picture that I liked and the person who painted it was Meleane To’a.She had painted a Jackson Pollock painting. Which is just a splash of paint everywhere on the paper.I liked her one because it was vibrant,abstract and cool.

When I saw my groups artwork I was very proud of making the artwork. Looking at the paintings felt like I was inside a colourful maze.My favourite part was going up on the stage and looking at the yrs 7 and 8 extension artwork of Hine.

My own version of Goldie locks and three bears.

Once there was a little girl and her name was Goldie locks. One day she was walking in the forest then she saw a house. She ran to the house because she could smell porridge. She went in, then the door shut, just like a haunted house. She heard a voice and said “Is there anybody here?” Then she heard a voice coming from upstairs saying “hello is that you honey?” Goldie locks asked “who’s that?” The voice replied “it's your husband”. Then a ghost came down the stairs and frightened Goldie Locks, she was so scared that she lost her hair and thats how she got the name boldie locks.

Boldie Locks likes to play at the park and loves playing with her toys.  She really likes playing with her teddy bears.  She has a best friend called Little Miss Muffit and they play on the playground together.  Boldie Locks can’t wait to grow her hair back because she doesn’t like people teasing her. Her favourite color is blue and when she grows up she wants to be a singer and dreams of being a Superstar!

Composition IV

Composition IV is a mix of swirling colours and soaring lines.
In the center of the painting you can see 2 thick lines and they are divided of the left hand side       and the right hand side.On the left hand side there are violent motion and on the left hand side it just all calm and peaceful.

Two Red - Hatted cossacks were holding black swords, in front of a blue Mountain. While the Third bearded cossack leaned against his Purple sword. On top of the blue Mountain is a castle. On the lower left you can see these purple things and those are the boats and on the lower right you can see these two people lying on a hill and two preists are watching over them.

My story for kids should see this.

I watched this video from kids should see this and it is really cool. The video talks about animals who are endangered species and shows close ups of them. The animal that I like is the black snake. I like the black snake because I have never seen one that color before.

Endangered species are the most important animals because we have to look after them before they become extinct. The video says that 100 species become extinct everyday, this makes me feel really sad because these animals are really special to our planet.

What would swimming be like in 2012?When my classroom heard that we were going swimming we were so excited.I am going to be so happy to jump into that pool!!!!!!

The first time walking into the doors for the pools all I could smell was chlorine and it was really hot inside the pools. Running to the showers all I heard was “RUN GO GO GO!!!!!”But then Miss King stopped us and then we had to walk because it was way too slippery.

Hopping into the pool was so warm and a little cold but then I got use to it. We had to swim one length backstroke  - Non stop!!!! When I got to the end I was huffing and puffing.

My favorite Thing to do is freestyle.The funniest thing though was watching Sebastian doing the doggie paddle.

When I went into the pool I had some time off school.

Hannah's Artwork

This Term Our Topic is called ART ALIVE.We made Artwork out of melted crayon.It was my first time making that kind of artwork.

The first thing we had to do was get a canvas from the teacher.Painting a word onto our canvas,my word was learn .As one of us were painting someone else in our group  were gluing some crayons on a cardboard from warm to cold colors.

When we were finished gluing the crayons we sellotaped our cardboard of crayons on top of the canvas.Then we got a hair dryer and put it on the crayons to melt.When I was melting the crayons it was dribbling down really fast.

The fun part was melting the crayons.I really enjoyed looking at the puddles of melted crayons and touching it.Have you ever done this before?

I was the first one to capsize into the water. Then I went again and I got in a double kayak and I went with my friend Mao. When we were finished we went for a little swim behind the slippery rocks. When my team was walking on the rocks somebody slipped because they were running on the rocks. On the rocks were puddles of cold water, we pretended they were spa pools.

The Candy Dragon

Amazingly in a market in China a very talented man made a dragon out of burning hot brown sugar. Keeping the pan of sugar on the fire beside him, he made sure it was always hot.Using a very special spoon, called a ladle he dipped the sugar on to the paper. Have you ever seen a candy dragon?
