Problems And Solutions


We have been thinking about all the problems we would have if we lived on another planet. Our task was to choose a problem and make up 3 solutions to it. The problem I chose was No Air.
One solution is a suit. This suit sucks in the poisanus gases and automatically turns it into oxygen so you can breath! 
Another solution is to have a massive dome. The dome is filled with oxygen. So you don’t need to wear an suit.
One last solution is that you could change a part of your body to make not need oxygen. Instead of making it you could just not breath oxygen!

Christmas


Christmas is nearly here. There’s only 13 days to go to! I CAN’T WAIT!!!



This year we might be having a UMU and breakfast at my Nana and Papa’s house! An umu is like a Tongan hangi! My cousin had told my other cousin and I, that we were going to have a hangi. But he lied!



We also might go to my aunty’s new house to see my little cousin Tahu,  and open some of our presents of course! I love visiting my aunty and cousin’s because the house is sooo big and the bottom room is cool. It's also bright and it’s really nice.

After Christmas we might be going up north, somewhere with a beach. Since my Papa knows someone up there we might be able to get in free? But I don’t know. We’ll just see what happens!

Prizegiving!!!


Tonight all the year 5's and up would be having their prizegiving. At 7:00 all the kids gathered into the hall. Mr Burt started it with a few notices and then said the prayer.

"Now the first performance is from the SENIOR KAPA HAKA group!" announced Mr Burt. Everyone started clapping. As they finished the performance, I started to feel nervous. Next was the year 5's!

Now it was time for the Year 5 prizes! Mrs Squires had told us who was going to get prizes, but no one knew what they were getting. First he gave all the awards for 100% attendance, citizenship and more. Tyla ( my friend ) got citizenship! I got a distinction award! Finally it was time for the ACADEMIC AWARDS! “In 3rd place is Jonita! ( my other friend) ” announced Mr Burt. “Woohoo Go Nita” I shouted. In 2nd place was Isara. “And in 1st place is Kaycee!” said Mr Burt. I could hear my dad cheering for me.

Next was our item! As I stood in my spot I could see my mum and brother trying to get a photo of me! As the music started to play I started to pose. Nearly forgetting the moves I looked at Mele and watched her. Our song was a remix one with EVERYBODY DANCE NOW, BABE BABE, JUMP JUMP etc. Finishing the performance with a back to back pose, I stared at everyone else. After this, the year 6’s got their prizes and it took a while!

Finally it was time for their item. They did a Jabbawockeez dance to a Michael Jackson dance. It was really cool. I liked it when the middle row picked up the white masks! It was awesome.

One of my favourite items was the intermediate one. The did the Dougie to Teach Me how to Dougie song. They were good! Jonty had the microphone and was going round singing it.

It was fun at the prizegiving! I also liked getting the awards. I hope next year it’ll be even better!

Netbook Reflection


At the start of the year we got given our Netbooks that we have paid for. It has been a year since then and now we have to write a reflection on having our Netbooks instead of pencils and paper.

Some positive things about having a Netbook is that we get to type instead of writing. Another thing is that it is easier to find all of our documents, because it is online in our google docs. Plus we have a school email so our teacher can send us our worksheets and new tasks. We also get to take them home with us!

Although there are quite a few positives, there are also some annoying and negative things like how the Internet disconnects sometimes. Something I really don’t like is that we have to re-imaged and that means all our stuff like pictures get lost. Some people also have problems with there Netbooks so, we’re lucky to have a guy named Nevyn fix our us. He’s like our technician.

Using the Netbooks this year was a new experience. But it was also fun! I can’t wait until next year!
