One Line Authors Story

Today we wrote a different kind of story. Each line was written by a different person and no one knew what anyone else had written. Here is my story.

I can see a dress.
I am with Oscar the grouch.
I can hear my cat.
I can smell BBQ chicken.
I am in space.
I am swimming.

Have you seen Pt England’s Manaiakalani movies. Well the movies are made by the really talented young people from Tamaki. My favourite movie was room 20’s. It was called Count On Me. I liked it because the song was about being friends with every one.

And my second best one was room 15’s. Because it was about Billy T James. It was a really funny comedy. People really enjoyed watching it.

Tumbling Down The Craters

Earlier this week we went to Stardome for a field trip. While we were there we decided to go for a walk up One Tree Hill.

Struggling to come down the hill I was looking at the muddy patches and dirt. It was awkward while coming down into the craters. It was scary coming down the hills.

Landing On The Moon

Do you know what it sounds like and feels like standing on the moon? Well I think it might feel like a hard stone that never comes out. The moon has craters on it and it will sound like someone jumping on the concrete.

It will feel really cool and exciting if I went on a spacecraft to the Moon. I would be amazed by standing on the Moon. I would really enjoy visiting it.

Best Thing I Did In The Weekends

The best thing I've done in the weekends is going on maths whizz. Because you can earn more credits and you can get better at maths whizz. First when you start you have no credits.

The maths games are like having some question like, + or - or maybe x and more things. Sometimes I reach my target and so I have to do replay. In replay you have to beat you personal best or beat your freinds time. or you can challenge other people in the world.

If you have enough credits you can buy pets. I have two pets in my bedroom. Well I have 871 credits right now. But we nomarly get 10 question or more up to 20. And we even can add buddes.

Aussie Rule

Have you ever played a famous Australian game. We had been learning the skills required to play Aussie rule.

The ball we use in Aussie rules is called a kiwi kick ball. It is a very essential and special piece of equipment to Aussie Rules. There is laces stitched on to the ball, and there is different colours on the ball.

Well one of our lesson was the bounce pass. It was a bit awkward because when I bounced the ball it was unpredictable where the ball will go. It was unexpected how to hit the ball to make a bounce pass.

My favourite thing in Aussie rule was the chest pass.

Cross Country Run

The day had come to do cross country. We had to run in the forest. It looked extremely dangerous and scary. It was windy and it looked like it was going to rain but it didn't.

It was hard to run because there were streaks and old steps. There was a smelly muddy creek and broken branches, there were zigzagging tracks and there was broken branches and old bridges.

I was nervous and scared that it might be scary. I jogged for the first bit, but I walked half way and then ran and ran. I was huffing and puffing at the end. I was so exited when I crossed the cross country finish line.

Mesmerising Australia

Its only a short hop skip and a jump across the Tasman Sea to Australia, but there is a world of difference in what you will find there.

People in Australia are multi-cultural. The first people in Australia were the Aborigine people, who were the first people to touch the land of Australia. They are Australia’s important people.

Australia's unique animal's are Koala’s, Kangaroo’s and Platypuses. These animals are native to Australia. The unique animals are very lucky to be in Australia.

Australia's Climate is predominantly arid which means it’s hot and dry. The coast in Australia is hot and very warm, it is also humid.

So if your fortunate enough to make the journey, you will need to allow plenty of time to explore all that Australia has to offer.

Badminton Writing

I never knew what badminton was. Listening to Mr Marks say you kids have badminton after morning tea, I was shocked and worried that it would be a running game. After morning tea we had to line up and wait for Mr Marks to come. When Mr Marks came we went to the hall and sat down. The badminton coach called Lorene was telling us the rules about badminton.

First we had to get a racket and we had to take a shuttle. We had to hit the shuttle with the racket. I kept on dropping the shuttle. Next we had to get a partner and one person had to get the cone, and the other person has to have a racket and a shuttle. The first person hits the shuttle to us and we have to catch the shuttle with the cone. Then we swap around. There is another skill that we have to hit it two times and we have to hit it under our legs.

The the other time we went to badminton we had 3 small courts and 1 big court. We had 6 people in our group. That was Mya, Tashell, Lisa, Taamai, Doris and me. There are 4 people in front of the net. If they miss it, it is another persons turn. When it was my turn I had to keep my eye on shuttle in order to hit it. It was so much fun playing Badminton.

At School

Do you know what we do at school. At morning teas and lunch times we go to the library. We put away the books where their supposed to go, and we clean the shelves. The library monitors are Jouan, Mohammed, Hajera, Moala, Britney and I. Hajera is the head librarian.

We sometimes play games, like we get a green sticker and we have to tag another person with it. We sometimes hide ourselves on top of the beanbags. And we play other games and we color in a colouring books.

Making Cushions

This is my material that I am going to sew my cushions with.

Motat Trip

Thursday the 30 of June, we went Motat. The classes that went Motat were room 15, room 16 and room 17. We had groups that we had to go in, I was in my cousins group Faheema. When we came to Motat we got out of the bus. A man took us by a train that was sitting there,that was our lunch place.

After morning tea our group went to the mirror maze. It was scary because we could only see mirrors around the whole maze. After that we went to the Victorian village. We went to an old jail that they used to have and inside there was a man who looked like he was dead.

After lunch we went to the challenge zone. There was a fun game it was called momentum machine, it is a leg spinning game. When I was walking past I saw a fire station and then we went to the tactile dome. It is so dark like we had put our hands over our eyes. I was with Taamai and Mohammed. I kept following the wall, but when we had to climb the net it was slippery because I had my socks on. When I finished climbing the net I could not find anything, I was stuck there. I found a slide that I did not know if it is right or not. Some people screamed “help”, then we found our way back.

This whole experience was exciting and I learnt how people used to live and lots of information to help me with our topic Bigger, Better, Faster, Stronger.

This is my drawing on a piece of a cotton. It was hard to draw on cotton because when we draw the cotton moves. So we have to put our hands on it to hold it.

Thursaday Netball

On Thursday afternoons we go to the courts because there is a netball teacher called Emma.

First we did some exercises. After that we learned some netball skills like chest pass and bonce pass. I was concentrating to get the ball in my hand. Our challenge was to shoot for goal. When we all bounced the ball to our partners it sounded like hammers hammering.

Emma put us in two groups. All of us had numbers like one, two, three up to 13. Emma called our numbers then we had to pick up a ball and try to put it inside the hoop. Every time we put it inside the hoop we get a point for our group. Netball is a fun game.

Swimming Lessons At YMCA Pools

Did you know that, Room’s Fifteen and Seventeen went swimming? We walked all the way to the pools. We are going swimming for two weeks. As soon as we walked inside, the smell of chemicals and chlorine got in me. As quickly as I could I got changed and I went to have a shower. Quietly I walked past the big pools. When we walked in the pools we did some swimming lessons where we have to do a star fish . I had my goggles on, and I could see underneath water. We went three times in a circle and we got changed. On Thursday we had another teacher called Miss Owano. Moala and I got to swim for one hour. We had so much fun in the water, and then we swam with out the flutter board. At last we had to get out. When I got out I was freezing cold and I was also dripping wet.

Tower Challenge

Do you know what? Room fourteen and fifteen split up. When we were split, we had to find three or four people to make the tower with. Mya and Jouan, Cheyaane and I were a team.

We made the tower with newspapers. Then we rolled the paper and we got sellotape to tape it together. We made four paper rolls. But we had to make it stable. To make it stable we folded the paper, sellotaped it and then we had no time to make it. Then Cheyanne scrunched it up. I felt like we wont be able to make it.

Do you know what? We went camp last week. It was so much fun. We had teams. I was in Mrs Vafusanga and our team leaders were Alexandria and Logan . It was called All Stars.

Do you know about my favourite thing at camp? My favourite thing was the hydroslide. The water was shallow and it was scary because it was dark and it went fast. It was fun.

We went to swim in the pool. There was a fountain with warm water. It was exiting there. I think camp is fun.

Christchurch Earthquake

When the earthquake happened lots of the buildings in Christchurch were demolished. After the huge earthquake lots of people were homeless. As the after shocks kept coming every hour the buildings slowly turned into rubble.

It was tragic and sad for the people in Christchurch when the buildings collapsed. The children in Christchurch evacuated from their schools, so they wouldn’t get trapped. Doctors in Christchurch had to help people. They were heart broken. The people were helping each other.

When it was my turn I felt nervous. I thought that I would lose. Then I did it because some of us bat the ball to slow. So they have to get it and throw it who ever is on the base form the team. If they get the ball they tag us with the ball.

Then when ever body was finish from Pepsi we went to do fielding and the cola group went to do bating. When a ball came close to me I felt scared.
