2012 Manaiakalani Reflection

This year is different for me because when I was a year 4 in room 11 I did not know how to write stories probably. But when I got my my netbook Miss King show us how to do good and exciting words and paragraphs.

I think that learning is fun. On our netbooks and blogs we learn, Create and Share to the world.

2012 has surprised me because we have our own netbook and Miss KIng was my teacher.

What I would do more this year is to P.E,Music and Dancing.

My goals for 2012 is to speak loud and clear. But the one the I need to work on is making sense.

Having a netbook is fun because we learn,create and share online with the world.

The best thing for being a year 5 is we learn how to make movies and edit them.

Thank-You Chris and Watersafe Auckland for letting Pt England school have the pool at our school. The first day we had  the pool we all thought is was closer to us instead of walking down to the G.I pools. At our school there are two helpful teachers whose names are Mr Garth Jacobsen and Mr Malloy.

The first day my class went into the pool was on Wednesday. We were so excited because we were the first class to go in. We learnt about a lot of thing which were, Floating, Treading Water, Life Jackets, Capesize which means it keeps yourself safe in water, Raft Building, Waves and Whirlpools. We learnt about all of these because when you're stuck in the water you can do all these things.

Walking through a lot of snow, down a narrow alleyway surrounded by big buildings, a little girl named Alma, who was five years old, saw a big chalkboard filled with names. Seeing so many names, she decided to add her name too. Picking up the chalk she wrote her name on the board. She spelled it out loud A.L.M.A.

While writing down her name, she heard a weird noise. Alma looked around, no one was there so she carried on. Moments later she heard the weird sound again. She turned around and Alma saw a doll that looked the same as her.

Running towards the window, Alma looked closely and it did look just like her. She wiped off the frost from the window,  she saw other dolls. As Alma tried to open the door it didn't open for her, she picked up a snowball and threw it.   

Suddenly the door opened and Alma walked inside. Looking all over the place, she saw a lot of dolls. Alma felt so scared. She thought in her head that she was only here for the doll.  Going towards the doll, Alma hit another doll on the ground. She picked it up.  It pedalled around in circles and then went straight for the door.

The door  slammed in its face and Alma thought it looked like it was trying to escape. She turned back, but saw nothing, her doll  was no longer there. Alma looked up on the shelves  and there it was.

Alma walked up to the shelves, she climbed on a couch. Looking at the doll, Alma carefully touched it. As she touched it’s face she heard a loud noise ZAP!!!! Alma looked around. She was so scared, she didn't know where she was. Alma was Feeling so scared  and all Alma could move was her eyes. Alma looked around and all other dolls were moving their eyes and looking at her.

My Narrative Story at the beach

Walking with my family we were going to Pt England Reserve to  have a swim and picnic. Dancing to the beach I said happily“ I can`t  wait to get there mum” When we got there I was excited. I waited for mum to give my togs. Off I went running to the toilets to get charge.

Running towards the water I saw my brother Toko who did a big boom and made me get wet it was fun. I jumped in and did a boom. I did it over and over again. Mum said “Come and have some lunch now”. So I went to have some lunch.

After I was eating I went to go have fun. When I did a boom my tummy felt sore. I said sadly to mum “ I have a sore tummy. Mum said “ You have a sore stomach because when you eat at the beach and then go for a swim you feel sick, that`s why you have to wait for a little while then go and have fun.”

Then we went back home because I had a sore stomach. My brothers and sisters were crying even my big brothers I said “ Sorry for doing that”

Farewell Mrs Verry

On Friday we had a special Assembly for Mrs Verry. She was leaving because her knee was broken. When I walked through the door I saw Mr Burt with a wig on and cool glasses because Mrs Verry loves bling. All the other teachers were wearing bling.   

 At assembly Mr Burt told us that she was his neighbor and she was a child supporter. Everyday she wears bling. That's why Mr Burt calls her the Queen of Bling and she's Pt England's super gran. We had two groups who got up to perform.  They were the junior  pounamua group and the Samoa girls to say goodbye.

First Mr Burt played a movie and then the 
 Junior Pounamua group up and did a Haka. Then the Samoa girls went up. They had pretty clothes and necklaces on. Then they were finished. Mrs Verry was crying. Then Mr Burt asked her to do a speech. Then assembly was finish. I said " I MISS YOU MISS VERRY!!!!!!!!!

My art Work

I kept working to finish of my painting. It took me a little bit longer to finish my kandinsky art.I listened and followed my teacher’s instructions. Miss King said “Do not put the colours together you need to put different colours next to each other”. My third instruction was to paint all the bold black lines. We used a little bit of the dark colours then we blended colours with water to go from dark t bright. I liked to finish my picture because I love doing painting is a lot of fun. I finally got to the color green Miss King said “This time don't rush just work slow”. The hardest part was blending the colors with water. But I did do well blending the colors. I need to work slowly and carefully. I enjoyed blending the colors together.
