Having Fun on Christmas Day.

As some people know it is Christmas, so it is a time that family members come to go together and spend there time opening presents,  having Christmas food and having some pudding. My favourite part in Christmas is opening the presents because you get to add surprised and you get to have a reward from your parents and family.

On the morning  of Christmas Eve my brother and I got to open our presents from my dad. My first present I opened were some clothes. It was a grey and brown summer top that my dad brought from Cotton On at Pakuranga. My brothers first present he opened were his clothes that were also from my dad. There were some blue, white and orange shorts, black and orange striped sandals and a bright orange top that really suited him.

After my brother and I finished opening our presents we went with my mum to go to my Auntys house so we  could spend time with her and her dogs. We went there on Christmas Eve because when we wake up on Christmas morning we would have a Christmas breakfast with my other Aunty, uncle and cousin.

When we woke up the next morning my Aunty and I got up and cooked breakfast. For breakfast we cooked some  crumpets, pancakes, pavlova, bacon, eggs and jelly. When my other Aunty and my Uncle showed up we all sat down and I said the prayer. After I said the prayer we all started eating our breakfast.

When we finished having breakfast we got to open all of our own presents. My first present I open was from my Aunty Bunge. It was a tiny present with a card and a present. The card said that my Aunty was wishing me a Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year.

After we finished opening own presents my Mum, Aunty, Uncle and my other Aunty were talking while my brother, cousin and I were playing with our new stuff. When we were playing with our new stuff my cousin and I were eating our chocolates we got in one of our presents, so were sharing chocolate and eating our own.

Not long after my cousin and I were eating chocolates one of my Auntys, Uncle and cousin were getting all of there gifts sorted and starting to leave. But then my Uncle said "Can Rave and Suade come with us?" and then my mum replied "Of course they can". So my brother and I packed our bags and hopped in my Uncles car and drove to there house.

On the way there my Uncle and Aunty were talking about there lunch they were going to set up when we get to there house. My Uncle started up the BBQ so he could cook the meat and the sea food like the steak, pork and the prawns. While my Uncle was cooking the meat the kids inside were playing with the toys and eating some chocolate.

When all the food was cooked we all came together and started eating. I ate some steak and some potatoe salad. My brother ate the same thing I had. After a while it was pudding time. So all the kids had to stop playing a go have some pudding. For pudding there were cheesecakes and cake with ice - cream.

Christmas Shopping with my Dad

On Friday morning my dad, baby brother and I went to Warehouse Stationary and my dad brought himself  a 2 degrees smart phone. It didn't cost the normal price it only cost $59 dollars. For my dad that is cheap because the normal price is normally over $100 dollars. So my dad got a good deal.

After we went to Warehouse Stationary we went to Countdown to get some chocolates on sale for my cousin Austin, Devon and Qeutin. We also went there to get some toys for my baby brother. The toy he got was a 5 pack of cars all lined up for him. My baby brother said that is favourite one was the yellow bumble bee one.

When we finished shopping at countdown just across from there was a Sushi Bar where we went into to get some salmon sushi and chicken sushi. My dad loved the salmon one and I love the chicken one. My dad ate the whole sushi all together and I just ate the chicken and the rice and the seaweed.

When we finished eating some sushi we went to go and pick up my Aunty and cousin up from the train station so we could all go to the mall. when all of us got to the mall my dad had a pair of shoes held for him at Adidas. The shoes that were held for him were just his size and they were perfect. My dad loved his new sports shoes.

Later after we finished shopping at Adidas my dad and I went to go and shop at Cotton On to buy some summer tops for Christmas for Me. most of them were lite summer tops for summer becuase it is getting to hot to wear some hot tops and hot long pants. The nicest one out of all of them was this blue lite top that my Aunty really loved it.

When my dad and I finished shopping at Cotton On we went to Converse to get me some shoes. When we first walked in we went to the other end of the store and we found some of the most beautiful shoes that looked amazing. I tried some blue converses on that fit perfectly and I brought those But when we went to go and pay for the shoes I saw these shoes that had grey on it and black laces.

In the End after me and my dad brought our Christmas stuff we went home and wrapped them all up. I hope next Christmas I get to do the same thing.

Merry Christmas Everyone.

Last Day in Room 14

The last day in room fourteen was so sad because I really did not want to leave. My teacher named Kimberly Ouano, is amazing teacher and I didn't want to leave. She is a really good cook and I really loved laughing with her and looking at her smile everyday.

When I got to school it was so weird because normally when I walk in to class, there is a lot of tables  and pictures on the wall and our teacher Miss Ouano is sitting there with her laptop. When the 8:50 bell went the whole school had to go to the hall for morning assembly, so that the people who were not at prizegiving, could get their certificates, sports awards and collect their school work for the year.

After we went to the hall my class and I went back to our classroom and we sat down and finished getting stuff off the wall like our art work, pictures and topic pictures. After we cleaned up my class and I got to play Pass The Parcel. 

If you don't know what Pass The Parcel is, it is a game that all ages can play. So you have to get some prizes and wrap it all up. There must be at least more then two  layers on. So you hop in a circle and pass the parcel and in the background music will be playing and when the music stops you unwrap a layer and pass it on.

While we were playing the morning tea bell went and the whole class went outside and had something to eat and a play around. When morning tea was finished the class continued playing Pass the Parcel. After we played Pass the Parcel the whole class got a chance to play musical statues  The music that was playing was Gangnam Style, Shine Ya Light by Rita Ora. Swiss, Blue Bayou and Last of all Hall of Fame. 

In the End it was time to pack up and go home :(. So my class and I lined up and walked to the hall for our very last 2012 assembly. When the whole school was there we did Lost Property. Then we sang our school song. Then at the end of assembly from Year 1 to 7 performed a haka for the year 8's that were leaving. 

I hope next year I get to have another cool,fun and creative teacher just like my teacher I have had this year. I hope when my teacher bakes she can bring some cupcakes and spaghetti boats to my new classroom.

2012 Learning Reflection.

What subject do you feel you did the best in this year? Why?
My favourite subject in school is writing because I think I have kicked it up a notch from the little sentences I used to wrote. Now I am writing over four paragraphs in writing stories.

What subject did you not do so well in? Why?
My least not so well subject I have not done good in is maths because I was not that great at doing Saving 100’s. When I was doing that strategy I needed help with my group mates and my teacher.

Did I manage my time wisely this year? How? e.g. finishing most tasks, working independently, getting work on the conferencing doc.
I think I have managed my time wisely because I have always been on Golden Time which means Free Time. So I think I have been spending my time wisely and have been finishing over my work properly.

Did I get Golden Time this much this year? Why or Why not?
Yes, I have got golden time this much because I always have finished my multimedia work before some people in my class and I have not been on it because I have finished and I have always finished my Writing, Reading and Maths properly.

What can I do differently next year? Why
Maybe next year my new teacher can teach me how to do Saving 100’s strategy and I can do my Writing even better.

Give yourself smiley faces out of 10 to show how well you did this year:

Going to the Beach.

"Where should we go family"? my mum said. I replied "We should go to the beach and get ice - cream and fish and chips." So off we went up stairs and pack our togs and towels.Then we hopped in the car and drove all the way to Kawakawa Bay for a swim so we could cool off.

On the way there we saw this sign that said fresh strawberries. The other sign said ice-cream, yoghurt , and fresh strawberries. So we drove in and got a fresh creamy delicious ice - cream that was made from scratch. I exciting part was the ice - cream filled up the whole cone. It was scrumptious, creamy and very divine.

Then when we kept on travelling then my mum saw a  oyster shop, I said to my mum "Mum, I thought you didn't want oyster's"? and she replied "Hey, if I see the shop I have to go in". So we drove in and my mum brought 2 dozen premium oysters, mussels and one oyster t-shirt that said "Shuck me, suck me, eat me raw".

My family and I kept on driving on and then when we went around the corner,  we saw a beautiful beach, a park, a dairy, the beach and a some boats in the water. We drove past the park and we went to the dairy and brought some fish and chips pack and a burger and nuggets.

When we finished buying our food we went on the other side on the beach. When we were there we saw people in the water and kids building sand castles. When my baby brother saw the beach he wanted to get down there and start building a sand castle with his bucket and sand castle tools.

We walked down to the beach and I opened my brothers sand castle tools so he could play. Then  I went down into the waters edge to get a bucket of water. When I got back up my mum and dad had already set up the picnic blanket and food.

After a while my mum was dying to eat her oysters so my brother and I stopped making sand castles and had something to eat. I ate my burger, my mum and dad ate oysters and my little baby brother was eating his nuggets and some chips. After we ate my brother and I made some sand castles with his bucket, sand and water. We made two of them and put shells on it and put a river around it.

Then my Dad said "should we go now"? and I replied "Ok". Then we hopped into the car and drove all the way back to my Mum's house. My Aunty and Uncle were inside. My Aunty was sewingand my Uncle was just watching tv. Then my dad said "should we go to the pool's now"? and I replied "Ok". When we got to the pool's there were lots of people there. Most of them were kids then adults. I think people went to those pool's because it is for free.

On Saturday I had a get day because I got to have the most beautiful divine Strawberry ice - cream, I got to make some sand castles with my brother, I got to have fish and chips and I got to have a swim. So I think I had a amazing Saturday Weekend.

Sushi Making.

"Rave do you know what we are having for dinner?" My Dad asked. "No" I replied. "Sushi" he said. "YUMMY" I said. Sushi is one of my favourite foods. So tonight my Mum and I got everything ready so we could make our Sushi Rolls.

First we had to cook all the ingredients like the rice and the pork pieces. When these were cold we started to prepare them. Next we placed our sushi mat down and placed the seaweed on top of it. Then we dipped our fingers into cold water so we could grab the rice.

This went on top of the seaweed. Next we put on sliced avocado,cucumber and the pork pieces. Then it was time to roll up the seaweed, using the sushi mat, into long logs. Then we wrapped them in glad wrap and put them in the fridge to chill.

After they had been in the fridge for a little while, we cut them up and placed them on a platter, with a cup full of sushi soy sauce and then we had ate them for dinner.

As soon as I saw them I wanted to shove it into my mouth. They were srumptious and I really enjoyed my healthy dinner.

Netbook Reflection 2012 :)

When I had a writing book I really didn’t like it because my hand would get pins and needles and when people get their books the books will always make an untidy mess.

But now, I have a netbook. Now I can go to different sites to help me learn and I can go to other sites to help me with cheerful words like the website, thesaurus.

I don’t like how the internet on my netbook disconnects and I can’t finish off my work, And when I do math whizz sometimes the internet disconnects and I have to do the same lesson.

A good thing I like about my netbook is I like how I get to have my own password to login and I get to change my desktop background on it. And one other thing I like how I can go on to the internet and go to my classroom class site.

I feel delighted to have a netbook. My hopes for next year is I hope to take it home in the holidays.

Making Donuts

"Who would like to make some donuts?" my teacher said. "I do, I do", everyone said. On free time today my class and I had a chance to make some donuts with our teacher.

The things we needed were cooking spray, pancake mix, a donut maker, sprinkles and icing. First we had to get the pancake mix and poor some water in it to make it a batter. 

After that we poured the batter into the donut maker one by one and we closed the lid of the maker and they cook. 

Then they came out looking fantastic and amazing. When they were all brown and looked cooked, it was time to decorate them. There were yellow and black sprinkles, rainbow sprinkles and yellow and orange sprinkles. I put all of them on to make it look like a rainbow.

In the end my one looked scrumptious and I had a lovely experience.

Toy Making! :)

On November the 27th in the afternoon it was a day that my class and I got to make toys for our theme for school, Toy Story. When we made our toys we had to get the materials for it.

When we were making our toys I felt nervous and thrilled at the same time. I felt nervous because I thought my balloon was going to pop, and I felt thrilled because I got to make my very own toy myself. My materials I needed were just a balloon and a coin. My toy was a Coin Centrifuge.

The first thing we did was our teacher told us what we needed one by one and she would give it to us to make our very own toy. It was challenging for my friend Josephine to put the coin in the balloon because it was a big coin. When our teacher, Miss Ouano gave us the materials we started to make our toy.  We had to take photos so we could show what to next and what to do after that in a presentation   

After that we had to use the photos we took and turn it into a presentation. In my presentation each side had all of my pictures I took were on there and I wrote a couple of sentences. At the end of my presentation I thought I did a good job and my teacher liked it.

At the end of making my toy I think I did a successful job at making it. My teacher really liked how it was completed.
I put stickers on my toy to make a smiley face and I was pleased. When I spinned the balloon my coin went around and it was making a funny sound.

Today I have read a story called Rumpelstiltskin. It is about how a girl wants to marry a prince and the prince's father said she has to make gold out of straw. So a goblin helps her make the gold, but they made a deal. She had to give birth so the goblin could make the gold and she forgot  the deal was to give the baby to the goblin.

Manaiakalani Film Festival

Manaiakalani film festival is a movie thing and a change for schools in our area to introduce their own movies at the hoyts cinemas.

In the film festival my classroom room 14 at point england school put on a movie and it was called Great Things Take Time. Great things take time means how to reach your goals, and what you want to be when you grow up.

My class movie was one of the last movies because I think they save the best for last. I think my classes movie was one of the bests because it was funny and had really cool songs for the interviews.

I hope the next film festival my class and I go to will have interesting and enjoyable movies and make the crowed jump out of there seats and clap.

My Narrative

One lovely morning Emma and Holly Decided to go to the Point England Shops and buy two bottles of fizzies and some lollipops.

While Holly was trying to find her wallet to buy there stuff she realized that she forgot it. Holly said to Emma “I forgot my wallet”. “Oh no, What are we going to do now?" said Emma.

So Holly rushed back home and quickly grabbed her wallet. But then she had no money in her wallet, so she had to go to the bank and get some. When Holly got some money she hurried back to the shop and paid for their drinks and lollipops.

Then Holly and Emma brought their drinks and lollipops and had a lovely morning.

My Reading Task

The Story is about how kids are making toys using electricity to make their own toys. And they perform a puppet show.The thing special about the kids are they make their own toys they can take home and they put on a puppet show.They had to make the Bulb glow, fumbling with the wires and they thought the batteries were flat because nothing was happening. Because it was cold and foggy.Because the kids were begging her. Because it can move by themselves. They had lots of choices because there were lots of things to use.
