New Years is coming

New years is coming up and we are going to our Dad's family to celebrate it. We are going there because on Christmas we celebrated it with my Mum's family.

My Mum's family are going to do church at our cousins church house. They are also eating there, so that means they have to take spare clothes to eat in. We will go to out Dad's Mum's sisters place witch means my Dad's aunties place and do a long pray and then we do a pray for the food. And after all those praying things we start to eat.

It will be a lot of fun because our cousins will be there and a lot of other people we sort of not know much.

Water Sliding and Swimming in the Hose

Yesterday we went to buy things for my Nana and Grandpa. As soon as we came back home my aunties and uncle asked me, "do you want to play in the hose and water slide with the mats we came with?" I replied "YES YES YES." So they got out the hose and the slippery mat.

They called us to go outside. So we did and my 3 cousins, my sister and me were so happy. I was going first so we got soap and put it around our body so we slide until we get to the end.

My uncle told me to get my little cousin to go in the hose and put soap on him and make him slide, so I did but then he cried. He went inside because his mum said so, so he can have a warm shower.

We still stayed outside and after 30 minute we go inside. 30 minutes later we got our towels, dried up ourselves and go for a warm shower. So the kids all showered and they were still happy about what happened before.

Special Agent EJ12 needs to be patient and find the clues to stop them. That's the easy part. As EJ12, Emma Jacks can do anything,

So why does she find waiting for Christmas Eve so hard? Perhaps she doesn't after all.....

Prize Giving

prize giving item from Team 4 Pes on Vimeo.

Last night on the 13th of December was prize giving. The day before was when I knew I was going to get a prize, but I did not know how many prizes I would get. As soon as I got there, it was going to start in about 8 minutes.

8 minutes later it started and Mr Burt (our principle) was waiting for us to be quiet. We all were silent and Mr Burt started to talk to us about our korero for the night. Some I know and some I don’t. He showed things on the screen like about our art, our writing that we improved and how we got heaps of money because of our parents.

I was sitting and sitting until he finished talking and I heard “its time to give out year 5’s awards” Mr Burt shouted. So he started off with calling the first name and it was Sela for best effort. “Jordan Alofi for citizenship and also for 100% attendance” Mr Burt said as Jordan was walking on the stage. Then Jordan shook Miss Teleso’s hand. “And also Iron Talia for 100% attendance” Our principle called while getting ready to call the next persons name.

I stood up with a surprise on my face and walked on the red carpet. And I went to get my certificate and shook Miss Teleso’s hand and she whispered “Well done” to me. So I walked towards my class mates and stood next to them, that was my first prize. As soon as my family saw me, they got off their chairs, got the lolly necklaces and gave it to me on the stage.

My nana, aunt, mum and brother came to give it to me. I bent down low so they can put it on my neck. My little brother came on the stage to give it to me because he could not reach, so he put it on me and I gave him a kiss.

My aunty said “Iron” and I heard so I saw the camera and I knew I was going to take a picture so I smiled. As I finished taking my picture, Mr Burt said “turn around and stand a bit longer so they can take some pictures” so we did and then we went off the stage.

“Next thing for year 5 is Academic” Mr Burt shouted. “Drumroll please.......stop in 3rd place is Iron Talia” “Drumroll please.......stop in 2nd place is Jordenne Eteuati” “Drumroll please.......stop in 1st place is Iisa Salie” Mr Burt shouted. And everybody cheered for all of us.

We went and got it and Mr Burt said “turn around and stand a bit longer so they can take some pictures” so we did it again.

Rotation & Reflection

This is a christmas tree. One is straight and the others are rotated. It was made on a cool site.

This is reflected. It is like a mirror and it took for ages. This is from a site called Reflection.

Monday, December 10, 2012


This picture above is made on a site called Tangram. You use 7 shapes to make them.

2012 Reflection

This year in year 5 was so amazing because I like learning and then creating what I learnt and then sharing my amazing work with the world on my blog or our classroom vimeo. What I have done best this year is filming and editing movies and then also sharing it.

I think my learning has gone a bit higher than last year because I listen instead of talking to my friends. What I do differently this year is learning to not talk on the mat while the teacher is talking.

What I enjoyed more this is getting heaps of ipads and playing on  it as well. I also enjoyed playing sports with our sports teacher Miss Va’afusuaga. Most of all I enjoy playing on my netbook.

This Is Sand

As you know, these pictures on top of my writing is from a site called this is sand. Have you ever heard of a site like thisissand? Well I knew this site from last year. It is a fun and cool site to go on and if you want to change the colour of the sand just press the letter C. Well as you can see here I have made anything with the sand with all sorts of colour. The 2nd one is the beach. The very first one is a black and white mountain. I have worked very hard to make these amazing sands, and they look just like what I wanted. Here is a challenge, see if you can make a better beach then my one and publish it on to your blog and send me an email.


 I really like what I have made, and try this SITE you will looooove it!

Watersafe Auckland

Swimming from Team 4 Pes on Vimeo.

For swimming in Pools in Schoolz, I would like to give a big thank you to Chris and Watersafe Auckland for giving it to us and to swim in it for a whole term once a week. They gave it for us to share for the whole school.

Another big thank you to 2 people in our school, Mr Garth Jacobson and Mr Malloy. You guys have looked after it when we were not swimming. You also took care and put new water in the pool each day.

We have learnt a lot in this pool we have had. Most of it is about learning how to float with life jackets. Also we have learnt if a boat that we are in capsizes, life jackets will make you float.

Goldilocks and the three bears

The three bears went out of their house for a walk in the woods when suddenly a girl named goldilocks entered their house. Goldilock said “HELLO”anyone here and nobody answered. She smelt that delicious smell of the porridge. She got very hungry and sat down and ate.

As Goldilock finished eating she was wondering where to go, so she went in the three bears room and saw a small bed, medium bed, and a herd bed. She tried out Dad’s big bed and said “this bed is too hard” so then she moved on to mum’s bed and tried it out,then said “this bed is too soft”so then she saw another bed which was baby bears one. She tried sleeping on it and said “this bed is just right”. So she slept and slept until the three bears came (Daddy, Munmmy, and Baby bear)

Goldilocks: Goldilocks is a little girl who has blond hair and curly hair. She lives in the wood/forest near the three bears house. Her skin colour is tanish and love to sleep.

Film Festival Review

Why should you watch this movie? The reason why you should watch this is because you should learn to sit quietly when you are doing a test instead of chatting and moving around. You should also watch it because it is funny and it will make you laugh even though you watch it 5 or 6 times.

This movie is made by Pt England students and they are from room 18. They have great talent that makes heaps of people laugh out loud. 

With all their talent, I rate this movie a 8/10

50 Word story movie The Test

On film festival night, my favourite movie was about to play. Room 18’s one. When they began to present, the two boys made facials, then Tyler spoke after them. I did not get it, but as soon as their movie began “The Test” began, I got the hang of it!

Wednesday, November 14, 2012


My friends and I made this movie for the Manaiakalani Film Festival. Our whole class had the chance to make a movie. We had to plan, prepare, film and edit all by ourselves. Our class had our own film festival to select the best two, to be shown at the Manaiakalani Film Festival. Here is my group's entry!

Finally it was my best day at school. Athletics! It was my best day of the whole year at school because we play sports. My favourite sports is running, so thats why I like athletics.

Our first activity was frog jump and I didn’t know how to do it. As soon as we got there, there were some red sacs lying on the ground. There were heaps of lines, so we know were to stand and also some purple little dotty things.

Mrs Tuala didn’t know what to do either, so we just skipped along to the sacs and stood behind the line ready to jump. We were about to start in just 3 minutes, but we had a practise first. I asked Mrs Tuala “Do we start jumping with 2 feet and land on both feet?” “Uhmm Yes” she replied while scratching her cheek, “And we will see who jumps the farthest”

3 minutes later, we were about to start. I was in the second row, so we had to go after the first people. As they walked up to the line, they swung their arms three times. “One, two, three” shouted Mrs Tuala while swinging her arms. They jumped and the winner was called.

“2nd lane up!” demanded Mrs Tuala as she lifted her hands. We walked to the lane to jump and Mrs Tuala yelled “Swing your arms, one, two and three, jump!” As we jumped, I was hoping that I would win so I did. “Woooohoooo” I shouted while jumping up into the air!

As all the other people finished jumping, we moved on to the 5 finalist. I was one of them. We got ready to jump and then we saw who came fifth and it was Ngaire so she had to sit down and it was the final 4.

“Three swings before you jump” said Mrs Tuala as she walked up to watch carefully! We jumped and then we knew who came first, second, third and fourth. Mrs Tuala told us who the winners were and she said “Iron is first, Puawai second, Emmy third and Jessica you are fourth.”

“Yeeeeeeeeepeeeeeeeeee, I won frog jump” I shouted while jumping and saying “good game” to everyone.

CATCF-Charlie and the chocolate factory retell

As Charlie was walking home, he stopped and stared at something. It was a coin that was under a drain. Charlie bent down to pick it up. “Its unbelievable”  Charlie said with a smile.

Walking into the shops, he felt so hungry so he brought a chocolate bar. He asked the counter “Can a I have a chocolate bar please?” “Yes you may but what one do you want, scrumdidlyumptious” replied while showing him it. “Uhmm I think I will take the biggest chocolate bar” said Charlie.

Charlie was very very hungry. And bought the biggest bar in the shop. Ripping off the paper that covered the bar, he shoved it all into his mouth. “ Slow down you might get a sore stomach from eating it very fast” Said the owner of the shop with a weird face.  

As soon as he finished his bar of chocolate, he walked away and then turned back. He asked the counter again and said “Can I just have one more chocolate bar but a Wonker one but for my Grandpa Joe.” “Sure” the owner of the shop replied with a smile on his face.

Taking ten steps out of the shop, Charlie watched a big crowd of people jostled to get the newspaper which said the fifth ticket was fake. Charlie took more steps over to some stairs where people sit and he was thinking it was his lucky chance. Carefully opening the packet he slowly unwrapped the wrapper and saw the Golden Ticket, he couldn't believe it so he shut  the wrapper again and open it back up......So he looked at it carefully to see if it was really was it.

Narrative-What is going to happen next?

Jimmy is 19 and he wanted to break the world record for jumping off the swing. He was excited for what was going to happen next?!?! “Hmmm I hope something bad is not going to happen once I land on the ground” Jimmy said.

“I’m almost there,I’m almost there ” shouted Jimmy while putting his hands in the air. What will happen next? As he was near the ground, someone cracked a glass and it shattered under where he was going to land.

NEK MINUT his bottom hit the glass and he shouted “OUCHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH”. His friends got so worried and picked him up. “Are you ok?” asked Tom as he patted Jimmy’s head. Jimmy replied and mumbled “Yes, but just a bit because my bottom is sore.”

My Narrative-At the beach

On a sunny day, my family went for a picnic at the Pt England reserve. We took so much food so we could eat whenever we wanted to. I was packed and ready to go.

As soon as we got into the car, we went off so quick because we wanted to be the first ones there. Yay we are first. It was incredibly amazing because we love the beach, especially when it is a sunny day as well.

“We made it” I shouted while jumping out of the car. I saw more people coming and it was our neighbours. They hopped out of their car and came straight at us.

“What are you doing here?” asked our neighbour while scratching her hand. “Ahhh we just came here because it was just too hot to stay at home” I replied back with a smile. I was worried because it looked like she was very angry.

While making a sand castle, I was talking to my nana and grandpa. Our neighbour came and kicked my sand, so my nana, grandpa and I got so angry. I really wanted to hit her.

As I walked up to her, I put on my mad face. “Why did you kick my sand castle?” I asked her angrily. “I’m allowed” she replied grinning. I got so mad.

So she got angry and said “I am ignoring you because you are not being nice.” “Care” I shouted back clapping my hands together. But then I felt sorry and went to her.

“Sorry” I said with my sad face. “Its ok, but as long as we won’t argue anymore” she replied to me when kicking the sand. “Ok” I mumbled back. So then we forgot this ever happened and had a big hug.

Thank Miss King and Miss Squires for checking my story!

With my sister Cecilia dressed like a clown and I dressed as a ninja, she took me out for Halloween. Before I knew it she had snatched the bucket of lollies off me. “Give it back you selfish girl” I shouted madly. “No way, you give it to me because I took you trick or treating” she relied aggressively. Then mum came and took it off from both of us and ate it herself.

White Sunday

On Saturday we got ready for White Sunday. It is when kids celebrate there day. I really liked it because I like standing up in front of people and doing my speech. I was feeling nervous but not after all, I stood up and faced my fears.

As soon as Sunday came, we ate and had our very last practice before we get ready to say our speeches.   We went to change and wear white clothes. My sisters and I had our dress from last year which was so fluffy. "Come in the car now" shouted my mum! I was in a rush.

We drove until we got there and took everything we needed. As we stepped in the church I saw my cousins and I was very embarrassed. I moved some table before we can start church. I wondered how is it going to feel standing up in front of these many people? 

My grandpa wanted it to start so we did and we sat down quietly and quickly! We started of with a song  then another song and after those to things we did a prayer. It was time to stand up after a long prayer! Our cousins were going up first because there one was long.

First they danced and then made there short speech, but the other speech was very long because the were bit with songs. They ended with a dance and sat down. Our one was up next and we stood up and walked to the front.

Our starting thing was a song and after was our speech. My sister started of with saying what we are going to talk about and then was my other sis. It was my turn to say my speech and I said it to my cousin. He said something back and after was my last speech I said to him and he replied back.

Then my oldest sister had a short speech. She just had to say a question and then my cousin answers. It was finished and my older sister said the very last speech for our White Sunday speeches. Then it was our song time with a dance.

We said something that we had to say so we finish it of properly. It was in Samoan. We were done and the people cheered!!!

As soon as we kids finished our speeches we carried on with church and it was done. I was so happy!

My cousins birthday!

On Saturday we celebrated my little cousins birthday. I felt so excited because I wanted to eat cake. In a loud voice I shouted "WOW" as soon as I saw the big beutiful cake.

My cousin is a girl and she turned 3 on Saturday. As soon as she blew her candles that were on the cake, she started to clap and we sang the happy birthday song in english and samoan. It was time for us to cheer and we said "hip hip horray, hip hip horray, hip hip horray."

We ate the cake after we cheered and we said in samoan "Manuia" which is "Take care". We started to eat and when we all took first bite, our faces looked so so suprised because of the prettyness, awesomeness and tasteness of the cake! We were happy that we got to go to her birthday.

My favourite part of my cousins birthday was eating the TASTFULL cake!!!

Thai Fish Cakes-(Let's Cook With Parmco)

In Extension we joined a competition for "Let's cook with parmco" so we started by cooking and it was last week. Last week on thursday we made some thai fish cakes. We had to know how to make it.

It was a very hard job to cook these yummy fish cakes. In my team we had Gloria, Kaycee, Sela, Tyla-Marie, Jouan and me.

What I done was turning the fish cakes that were on the frying pan.

At the end we all decorated the plate with fish cakes and veges. As soon as we ate it we had a big surprise on our faces and it tasted so so nice.

This task of cooking the thai fish cakes was a little bit hard. But what was difficult was flipping the fish cakes when it was in the pan. It was difficult because the hot water was spitting out and coming on us and burning our face.

My favourite part of our process was eating the fish cakes. Why? Because I really did like the tast of it and because I really liked eating the spicy curry.

Hmmmmmmm would I make this for my family??? I think I might but maybe not but I wish I did. 

I really hope we win!!!
Please vote for us!

Netball Prize giving

At netball prize giving we walked into the hall and sat in a straight line. As we sat down, people started to talk and we were ready to listen! It was year 1 to 5. It was long to wait for our turn because we new we were going to be the last one's to go up.

“Year 5 section 1, Pt England” shouted a lady! Up we went trying not to be embarrassed. As soon as we went on the stage, we all got a medal and a photograph in front of us was taking pictures. During the time we came off the stage, we all had to go take a picture with our medals.

By the time we finished taking a picture we saw a teammate of our netball team. She was late. I called “Come Hannah” but she did not, but she got a medal. Lucky she still came because she still got a medal.

As soon as our prize giving was finished, we all stood up and heaps of people were taking photo’s. Hannah’s mum really wanted a photo of us so she said “you girls make a Nice photos with your medals and the other photo with heaps of poses and silly face”, so then we did.

My favourite part of prize giving was going on the stage and taking photos and getting medals. “It feels so nice having a medal put around my neck” I said quietly to myself. We are so happy that we are the BEST year 5 team in Auckland! YAY!

It was really fun at prize giving!

Practices re crafting Aldora's paragraph.

Aldora’s Cross Country Recount
Today we practices refracting a piece of writing. The first paragraph belongs to Aldora and the second is mine.

“On your marks, get set, “Bang” shouted Mr Burt. Off we went trying hard not to bang into each other. I was already muddy. Luckily I didn’t slip like some other girls did at the start line.

“On your marks, get set!’’ Bang! off we went, trying hard not to  bump into each other. Mud was everywhere, all over my face and covering my shoes. Watching my friends fall over, I was laughing very loud!

Liu Xiang

Before the race I was so nervous because I thought that I might not even win. "Oh man my country is going to be so mad if I lose" I thought in my head.  My country was expecting me to win because I am the world record holder.

I felt embarrassed because I crashed over on the first hurdle in front of my country and family. "Hmm I wonder what my country is going to do to me?" I said to myself. My Achilles tendons was felling so painful I could not even walk but hop.

Wanting to leave I was thinking to go out of the stadium. Hopping back to the track I kissed the hurdle because I am going to retire. Finally I got help from others.

Cross Country

            CROSS COUNTRY

As we got ready for Cross Country, we walked to the reserve. We got ready and the girls went first. "READY SET" BOOM and there we went. I was very nervous that I was going to come last.

As I ran through the bush I saw some of my friends and I ran with them. "Wait for me" I said to my friend. "Oh no I am coming 4th" I said, but then I went past the person that was in front of me. Then I was coming 3rd.

"YAY we are near the end" I said. "Yes we are" My friend replied. As we were near Miss King we ran as fast as we could so we would cross the finish line. After I crossed the line and I came 3rd.

"YAY I made it pass the line" I said and I was so excited that I came 3rd.

Cross Country Training

Walking towards the courts I said to myself “Do we have to do this?”. “Man teachers are mean!
“I just hope it will rain” I cried. “Why oh why”!!!!

Running down the path struggling to breathe, my legs were aching and I couldn’t see. “Run, run, run’ said Miss King. “Awww maan”. Jogging my way around Mr Sommerville my chest felt painful.

My goal is to win a gold medal and maybe run 5 or 4 laps!!!
