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.

Christmas Countdown EJ12

There is a story called Christmas Countdown-EJ12 GIRL HERO. EJ stands for Emma Jacks. Here is what it is about. The world's largest diamond collection has disappeared just days before Christmas. But how and when will evil agency SHADOW smuggle it out of the country?

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.

This picture above is a Perimeter. It is how far around the outside of a shape is. I had to do level 3 because Miss King said diamonds, octagons and squares have to do it so I am in octagons and I did it in 1 go.

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.
