The seals who died?




The seals who died. Some people think the seals died because a stupid person whacked the seals with a baseball bat but some people also think that the seals died because they were scared of the people . I believe that the people who hit them were being cruel to animals and I hope they have learnt their lesson because the seals who died had their little pups growing inside them and they killed the pup's for this year and next year. We fanau should donate some money to the seals who were killed to death.

Waterworld



While packing the car we were feeling excited because we were going to Hamilton, to water world.As soon as we arrived we were really ictching to jump into the pool.When we hopped in it was extremely cold i was feeling scared because i looked up at the water and it looked like i was in the pacific ocean and a shark was coming that's why i quickly jumped out and never went back in . There were games in the pools as well as a humongous wipe out center for the little kids that had connected to the big dark hydroslide there were two hydroslides it was called the black and blue first i went on the black and my had a head ache but the blue one had twinkling lights which made me feel safe.

Other than the scary water i had enjoyed my time there and i hope we could go again the next weekend.

Reflecting on 2010



Looking back on 2010 some of my highlights have been playing and doing activities with the class. Another highlight was learning more about other topics and some weird and disgusting creatures as well. The topic i loved the most was the Mighty mariners because the topics were really interesting and cool. The thing i wanted to do most was swimming as well as playing water polo at lunchtimes, but we were upset it was only on Wednesdays. I think that I could improve on my writing as well as my concentration when learning about the topics. My best memories from 2010 were meeting new people and playing games with the class. The goal I have for next year is to get my work finished and to not be so shy.

Miners



Today the people of Greymouth had a memorial service for their loss of the miners in the Pike River Mine. They were all killed by the gas leak and explosions in the mine. It was so strong that it killed 29 men, teenagers as well. The sad thing is that some families lost a child and aswell as a husband. I would donate to those families who had a family member who died and are suffering with out them. Those miners were really brave and it was good they found a job they loved. Wherever they go everyone knows that they were great heroes. Miners are great hero's because they are willing to risk their life for our country and environment. Those miners were really brave and we will never forget them and their great tragedy.

First week of swimming





First week of Swimming

Eagerly waiting beside the pool for Chris, we were all chattering excitedly. Before long he came out and we got given life jackets that were freezing. As I squeezed into my damp clammy life jacket I shivered and shuddered because it was cold and clammy. I quickly adjusted my jacket and off we were into the pool.

Chris is a helper from water safety NZ and is here to teach us about the safety way of using water . He will be taking us to the new pool every Wednesday for the rest of the term. While in the pool we were learning some activities and re caped what we learnt the week before . One of the activities we did was when Chris told us to huddle up in a big circle with the whole class. Then he ordered us to sing the national anthem and was spinning us around in circles “AHHHHHH “I screamed.


After a while I was fine, it was awesome. I can’t wait for swimming next week on Wednesday because we had a really great time.

Old dental clinic



A final farewell as our old dental clinic was crushed and smashed into piles of rubble.

As we had torn apart the weatherboards with a crowbar the dental clinic was slowly getting weaker and weaker. Then we had got it down in preparation for our new intermediate school.People were standing around in shock as they saw the dental clinic collapse to the ground in such a hurry.

While the dental clinic was destroyed by a ginormous digger it was teared into pieces and there was a lot of rubble left over.While waiting for it to be cleared we had a brand new dental clinic open for us.

Scientists classify the animal kingdom and put them into of 2 main groups which are Vertebrates and Invertebrates.They were sorted out and were put into a place where they belonged.


Vertebrates have a backbone like birds,reptiles,humans, and mammals they are just like us humans.they have hair and they have parents who feed them they are also warm blooded.


Invertebrates have no backbone. they are totally different to Proxy-Connection: keep-alive

Immersion Assembly

video

Immersion Assembly
Today the school got together for an immersion assembly. An immersion assembly is when the whole school goes to the hall on the first of term to discuss our new topic.Mr Burt was dressed up as a nasty mosquito and slithered acrossthe school hall. Mr Jacobson was a mega moth with gigantic wings,as well as hosting the assembly. The new topic is Little Critters.

Surprisingly the teachers had special items they had put together for us. The teachers were all split up into team 1, team 2, team 3, 4 and 5. First up was team 1 and they had an item that represented Incy Wincy Spider as well as little Miss Muffet . It was really good when they
were wiggling and jiggling.

Next up was team 2 they presented a video of the life cycle of butterflies.It was entertaining because although I love butterflies I don’t know anything about them and that clip all the
information I needed. That was my favourite part of the immersion assembly.

The funniest part of the immersion assembly was when Mrs Barks group went up team 3, for NZ's Next Top Little Critter. She was telling us she was a beautiful young ladybird and then Mr Barks shouted out “I love you” and she replied “ I don’t blame you” then we all started laughing.

I love immersion assembly and I can’t wait for the next one.

In the weekend


In the weekend my family and I went to the airport.The scary thing was we were going to the airport to say goodbye to my Nan and Pa because they were going to Samoa. When we got there my mum was really nervous because she and my Pa hadn't talked to each other for a really long time. This was because last time they went to Samoa my Mum and Dad came to the airport too late so we missed them, as they just departed. It was very upsetting.

But this time it was better because as you now know, they hadn't seen each other for a very long time. So this time when they had to depart, my Mum ran up to my Pa and gave him a great big hug and my family started crying.

Buildings  were badly damaged and there was a lot of flooding happening caused by the movement of the ground.The size of the earthquake was around 7.1 and there was a lot of devastation  throughout the whole of Christchurch. People were really surprised that this earthquake had hit this town because  it was not expected by anyone.

People in Christchurch awoke with broken windows, damaged train tracks, funny looking  fields and a huge  mess left by the earthquake. A church  in Christchurch was not straight as it was  blown  over  by the earthquake. There were houses that were destroyed Parents in Christchurch were a bit tense because that Earthquake could spread a lot of diseases that can cause death to children.

Cross Country

ome a place and be a winner like everyone else but I was feeling tired and weary.
At the end I sprinted and still came a place but I never came first better luck next year I said. video

On Wednesday the 25th of August we had our school cross country. While we were waiting for our, race the ten year old girls, we had to cheer with house bannerss that room 19 made to cheer the audience up.
As the race was just about to start we were all feeling nervous and I was also very cold and numb. Before we ran we had to wait for the big clap that went like this BANG!! That's when we had the chance to start. Inside I was feeling really scared and nervous because everyone was cheering and I screaming but then I ran.When I got around the corner I was extremely puffed and I couldn't catch up but I tried to and and I did, and when I did I all of a sudden I spewed.
I couldn't take it anymore so then I told the teacher and she said just walk, you'll eventually come a place and be a winner like everyone else. But I was feeling tired and weary.
At the end I sprinted and still came a place but I never came first. Better luck next year I said.
