Prize giving

Prize giving was an awesome day. I never thought I was going to get an award. Out of all of the awards I got 3rd in academic. My heart was beating so fast I didn't know what to do. Our performance was amazing I just don't know what more to say. We done a dance called the dougie It's when you put your arms out front and lean side to side.

We all had an awesome day.

Rugby

One of the sports New Zealand is known for is rugby. Our rugby boys were East Auckland champs so because of that we had to move on to the Auckland Tournament. We were all confident at trying our best.

We arrived a bit late, seeing all the other schools and their boys. They looked massive and I couldn't resist looking at them. I bet they thought I had an eye problem. So there were two pools a and b and we got put in the b pool. The teams that we were against was Sir Edmund Hillary Collegiate and finlayson Intermediate.

It was kick off time My position was lock, nerves were building. Luckily the ball went to the opposite way from were I was standing. Forming a ruck is quit a hard thing to do Its like building a bridge over who’s ever on the ground. Sadly we lost that game, and we came third over all.

We were one of the smallest teams there but we still stayed humble.

Planets

Wow!! Is that really how big the planets a compered to earth. Its funny to see how other planets don’t knock into each other. Mrs langitupu was giving us a demonstration on how the planets are lined up and how they can orbit around the sun.

So we headed outside to full balloons up with water. The balloons were meant to react as planets. Sadly it just started pouring down with rain, so that plan didn’t work we went back in side and decided to blow up the balloons,only 9 people had to blow them. The order of planets from the sun a Mercury,Venus,Earth,Mars,Jupiter,Saturn,Uranus,Neptune,Pluto.

The sun is bang on in the middle of the solar system. Did you know that there a stars bigger than the sun and they are located below the milky way. It takes a year for the earth to fully orbit around the sun. All planets orbit anti clock wise. Also another word to call a planet is an orb. Neptune is named after the roman god of the sea. Neptune is mostly filled with water. Earth only has one moon a no rings.

My favorite planet is Pluto because sadly A few years ago it was named a dwarf planet. It is about 2 to 3 thousand km. Its the furthest from the sun and its in the outer core. After one day of learning about planets I am happy with the out come.

I actally found out allot of interesting things.

Our Solar system


Wow! Is their really bigger stars then the sun. I wonder why I haven't heard of them since today? That’s really weird. It is shocking to see the size of them, they are located below the milky way. I wounder how the stars were formed?. The largest planet is Jupiter. It is followed by Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Earth, Venus, Mars, Mercury, and finally, tiny Pluto. The brightest star out of all of them is Sirius.

RWC all blacks


I believe that the all blacks have the biggest chance on winning this years rugby world. I'll give you three reasons why and one reason why they might lose.

1.They're ranked number one
2.They won all their pool games
3.They have Zack Guilford and Ma'a nNonu

This is why they might lose because they don't have Dan carter.

Lets fly to the Sin Bin

Smack! what a powerful hit from Paul Williams(Samoa). Paul willams delivered a dynamic Performance but sadly flew him self .to the sin bin Getting sin binned is not a good thing to hear in a rugby game. So when ever you play rugby play fair and play hard.

Silly sports



Squishy, muddy, sweaty, screaming. Those were my thoughts from yesterday. Silly sports! Who would of thought of that?

There were 4 sports that we could do. Each class was given 1 activity to do. We would play thats sport and when we had finished that sport, we would rotate on to the next one. Our first sport was with our own lovely teacher Mrs Lagitupu.

When we were with Mrs Lagitupu, she split us up into 4 teams. One team got a ball and the aim of the game was to try and tag a person with the ball without running with it. In this game you needed to be able to catch and communicate very well with your team mates.

Another 1 of the 4 activities we did were with Mrs Nua. Her game was a bit of a classic squeezing sponge, muddy puddles, laughing and co-operating sort of game. It was the right game for this kind of day because it was so hot !


The best of them all though was Mr Harris’s 3 legged raced !Trying to walk with my leg tied to my friend while balancing a tennis ball on a spoon. It was so much fun ! The best way I could think of winning was chanting the old rhythm, “left right left.” Luckily for my partner and I, we won !! Now we’re in the finals.

It was a very enjoyable fun and also a great experience. I was happy to see everybody laughing. What an epic day!

Life caravan


During term 3 we have had three sessions so far,Lyn was our teacher through out these sessions. What we were learning about was puberty and things that evolve around that. I have enjoyed learning about bad things that people put into there body's and the dangers around New Zealand on drugs.

Cross country

A 3.5 km run I thought to myself. Am I really prepared to do this? It was one day before our annual school cross country event when the teacher came in to show us the map that showed where we were going to be running. I hadn't run in a long time so this was time to test my fitness levels.

I was waiting with the Year 8 boys sitting down, wondering if we should jog or not. I thought about jogging but that would've taken quite a long time to catch up to whoever was in the front. On the track there was mud, rocks, puddles and steps.

I was half way through the track huffing and puffing, my lungs were exhausted. I thought my legs were going to break. Tanielu and I were going at the same paste until I just could'nt take it so I had to walk.

Wow I was very surprised I came 9th overall ! Wow I was very surprised

Kung fu part 2


In the holidays my family and I went to Sylvia Park to watch Kung Fu Panda 2. We were meant to go and watch Cars 2 but sadly it was sold out. The movie was going to start in 30 minutes. In that time we went to the grocery store to buy treats because it is cheaper.

Finally we had got all the treats and headed back to the cinema. I was looking forward to seeing what kind of adventure Pou (panda) was going to have. Jack black is a very entertaining actor and also really funny. Kung Fu Panda part 1 was kind of funny but this one looked hilarious.

The main character (Pou) was searching for inner peace. He was trying to search for his parents. When he was a baby he was abandoned and brought up by Mr Ping (goose). He discovered that his parents were attacked and killed when he was a baby.

My favorite part of the movie was when he fought against lord Shen who was trying to take over china. I thought lord Shen was going to win easily because Pou is such a clumsy panda, but maybe I thought wrong,massivie firey mateal balls were getting shot at Pou. What he done was found inner peace and slowley swifted the balls back at all Mr shen army.

Over all I thought this movie was really funny. My vote was probably 9 out of 10 stars.

Term 2 Highlights

Term 2 has been a roller coaster experience fulled with loads of highlights. This terms topic was bigger,better,stronger and faster. So far we have learnt lots about famous inventors like Albert Einstein .

I really enjoyed Taoga time with Mrs Nua our topic was based on japan. Another cool thing about term 2 was sport, our 15 man rugby team took out the Eastern rugby tournament tomorrow we a going to the Auckland champs I can tell that it’s going to be a big competition.

The highlight that I liked out of all was the “I am making movie 2” competition our school entered 2 movies and we both were finalist. Sadly we just got nominated but did’nt win our girls won best creative movie and supreme winner.

Term 2 has been an awesome journey now i need new goals. I'm looking forward to term 3 and what new things we a going to learn.

Tech at tamaki

It was Monday morning, and our last day of tech. I got to school and saw everybody lined up and ready to walk over to Tamaki College.

We leave school at 8:30am every Monday and arrive there at 9 from then we get split up into our 5 groups. Our teacher is called Mr Malhotra, he is an awesome teacher and funny. He takes electronics and this term we were in his class. I had finished my project a few weeks ago so this week I just needed to create a poster that showed the dangers of electricity. There are different kinds of dangers like leaving electrical appliances on and they catch fire.

I really enjoyed being in electronics! It has been a great experience learning about batteries,wires and all types of things operated by electricty.

Tamaki Science Roadshow

Last week we went to Tamaki College for a science road show. I felt excited on what type of experiments they were going to show us. It seemed strange because I haven’t been to a science road show before.

We arrived at Tamaki College and entered the auditorium. I gazed across the room and saw loads of exhibits. Experiments waiting for us to have a fiddle with them. There were two presenters demonstrating to us what types of experiments they have. After all that was done we got to look around and try out some of the exhibits.

My favourite exhibit was about different smells because it smelt nice. The presenters were talking about temperature and the things needed for fire to burn.

Cell phones


One of the many useful technology gadgets that most people have are cellphones. There a many types of cellphone brands, for example there’s Nokia, Motorola, Hitachi, Sony Erickson, LG, Panasonic, Sharp, Toshiba and a whole lot more.

Phones have changed over the years since 1970. It has changed enormously through out the last fifteen years and is bigger, better, faster and stronger! It has made a huge change in our lives.

Because this technology has been used to keep in touch/contact with family, it is very valuable to some people. Phones can also be very dangerous because people are so addicted to it and drive while using them.

The kind of people that have cellphones are teenagers, business workers and adults. I had a cellphone, it was a Nokia phone. I mostly liked to use it to listen to songs and to talk with my mates!!! The cost of phones have increased largely over the years because of the new technology that they have.

Cellphones can be really incredible inventions, but can be dangerous sometimes. For example talking on the phone while driving, can cause severe damage because it distracts drivers from keeping their eyes on the road. Overall I think it has changed our country and world.

Camp TC


I woke up very early, double checking my bags making sure I had everything I needed. It was day one of our yearly 3 day camp. I made breakfast, did my hair and raced out the door way. I got to school and I could see that everyone was just as excited about camp as I was. Before we could get into action, Mr Burt gathered us all in the hall and blessed the day.

There were 6 groups called the Motivatorz, Participatorz, Respectablez, Carerz, Responsiblez and the Thinkerz. My group was called the Responsiblez.

My first group activity was to practice our item. We had to do an MTV, performance and stand out performance with four to three people for concert night. Our first task was to make an MTV video (we had to film it). Next was our group item. That was a bit hard for our group because we had no ideas, but then the girls came up with an idea.

One of my highlights for Camp TC was Rock Up. On Tuesday morning we were split up into 15 groups. The reason why we were split up was because we needed to learn how to work together. The name of my group was Eastside Soliders and there 8 people in my group. We were each given a timetable and our first activity was Alligator Alley. There were three tires and two walking planks. The aim of the game was to try to get over to the other side without talking and falling off, also the plank was not allowed to touch the ground. Now that was challenging. Even though my group wasn’t cooperating we still tried our best and won.

My other highlights was dinner at camp. The hangi was definately a highlight. Some of the other things I really enjoyed was the camp concert, Swimarama and hanging out with my friends.

Softball "East champions"!!!!



We had an softball tournament down at tamaki intermediate. I was very nervous on what teams we were going to vs because it was my first time at a softball tournament.

Our first games was about to start my stomach felt like butterfly's were in them, but i knew i could do this. The school first up was st Thomas we were looking at the size of them and they were small kids sadly we one that game i thought we were bully's.

We won all our games except one, but we made it to the Grand final . The team that we were playing against was Churchchill Park it was a hardcore game I was in the batters box looking at how their team was pitching my friend Nathaniel did a mega hit but sadly got caught out now it was my turn to swing that bat. I put both my arms up high and watch the ball carefully. The ball had been pitched I took a look at it and I was’nt meant to hit it but I did. Strike one I took another swing BOOM!! that went high but i got out.

Anyway we won that game and now we a of to the champions of champions next week.

Thanks to this website http://www.1happilyevenafter.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/stock-sports-softball-f-025.jpg for this photo.

Our Class graph




This is a survey put into graphs of the things that pupils in our class like. These a three types of graphs they a called a pie chart,line graph and bar graph. It was easy to make these graphs because we had the information right next to us. As u can see most people in our class like blue as their favorite colour also most people like another animal besides the ones on the graph. Here is the web site if u would like to make u one.

Hold on tight Christchurch





Yesterday was a very sad day for those in Christchurch because of the earthquake that struck the city. I feel very sorry for those kids that are not in school as we speak. What our school is trying to do is raise a lot of money for those who are in need in the earthquake.

I just wonder what if that happened to us? So that’s why we should be prepared for what ever comes to us. our school went into the hall and had a moment of silence Mr Burt (principle) Told to think about some ides to help Christchurch to help them. One of the ideas we came up with was trying to do is make care packs fulled with lots of stuff that kids would like to have.

I hope everybody holds tight.
