Merry Christmas

I would like to wish you all a very big Merry Christmas, and a wonderful holiday. Hope you have a lovely Merry Christmas.
WISH YOU ALL A MERRY CHRISTMAS.

End of the year Reflections

Introduction
Hey did you know that at Point England school, we have 3 classes in 1 block?, Isn't that amazing?. Well our teachers names are Miss Lavakula, Mr Goodwin and also Mr S.

Reading
What I enjoyed in reading was, when we had go on the mat to read with our teacher. It was so fun reading different kinds of books.
Also learning thing from the book. Did you know that reading is good for you? because, if you don’t know how to read then you can’t really learn much.

Writing
In writing I like to write about the interesting thing we did at school and at other places. At school we play lots of fun games like the blindfold, the chocolate game and also a game that you had to eat. Writing is one of my favourite subjects in the world.

Math
Math is one of my favourite subjects too. It is so fun to learn about math. Did you know that school is so important to me because, when you go to school, it help you to learn all about interesting thing that you don’t know, and also math is the best subjects in the world too me. What I learn in math was that ⅔ of 18= 12, because ⅓ of 18 = 6 so other ⅓ of 18 = 6 so 6+6=12.

Inquiry
Did you know the inquiry is so fun and amazing because It has cool thing you can do in your class. In term 2, our theme was called Tinkering tool and toy, and in term 3, our theme was called Trade and Enterprise . My favourite term was term 3. Cause there were group of 5, the names of the groups were Toys, Accessories, Homewear, musical instruments and kitchen. The group I was in was musical instruments. It was so cool and fun because we got to make driftin kinds of instruments.

Conclusion
What a tiring term. It was lots of fun, and had an amazing thing we could do. For next year my goal is to ame height in reading and math. So I am going to finish this year off properly, and go on to year 7 for next year.

Camp Bentzon

            Kawau Island
On the first day at camp,it was amazing. First we had to take all the thing off the ferry onto the land. Then we had to sit in our line that the teachers had put us into.

The team are Bentzon, Mention, kawau and Kats. I was in the Mention, But then I had to go into the kats. When I was with the kats, I had to stay in their team till camp is over. I really miss my old group when I went into another group. But I had lots of fun.

The funniest part was when, I first went for a shower I was slipping and my tower was soaking wet. Also it was so funny when the boy were acting like girls. It was so crack up when Alfa said, “girl” lets show these boy how it’s done.

My favorite part was when we got to bomb off the pontoon. Did you know that my best friend Amethyst came first bombing. What I did not like about camp, was that My other friend cameo was sleepwalking. It was so sad because student keep on talking about it.

At camp my favorite activity was App Selling, and also The Confidence Course. The best part at app selling was when we had to walk down this high wall. Is was so cool when we had to walk back woulds. Also the amazing part about The confidence course, was when we had to do the monkey bars. It made my amazed.

After all that fun things we did, it got sad. Because we had to go back home on the last day of camp. Mose of the student did not want to go home, cause They had lots of fun there and lovely sleep together, but they had to go home. When we got on the furry, we all waved and said goodby. It was the best camp ever.    Image result for camp bentzon

Have you seen a kiwi before? Well if you have, then that is cool, because I am going to talk about a kiwi. Where it lives, What it eats, What does it look like and What does it do.

A kiwi lives in a native forest and some lives in Australia. A kiwi has thick fur and  has tiny wings, but cannot fly. It eats worms and other bugs. It sleep in the day and is awake in the night. That is called nocturnal.

A kiwis egg is 6x bigger and heavier than a kiwi. When the kiwi has laid the egg, It sit on it to keep it warm. But when the kiwi is gone to look for food. The kiwi covers the egg with leaves.

My Holiday Writing

“Have you ever been to camp before?”
Well on the first week of the holidays, I went to Riverside camp at Willow Park. When we arrived we had to sit in the ruma room in our teams. The girl’s teams were called Mufasa, Pumba, Cog and Flavaz . The boys teams were called R4Bz, tanz, suberins and BWA.

The first activity we did was that we went to the beach to make sand castles. We only had 3 hours. In 1 place, Me and my group came first. In 2 place the R4BZ came second, and in third place is the cog.

Our next game was sport’s. In our team we had to choose a captain, and that captain was me. The game we play was tag, touch and Tball.Our team won one game and lost two. But I said that it was all right, because we are a good team that knows how to work together.

After all the fun we had, was so cool but tiring. Then we had dinner and our dinner was meatball with spaghetti. It was delicious. After dinner, we had to go and brush our teeth. Then we had to go to bed.

In the morning all of the team had to run up and down the stairs, and back and forward to the beach and back to the place where we had to have breakfast. Our Breakfast was porridge, cornflakes, yogurt with pineapple with toes.

When we had finished our breakfast. We had to go and brush our teeth and then get changed into your togs. We were going to play game that you don’t get wet in, but we play game that you do get wet in. One of the games were called spong. What a fun day.

Going camping is cool and heaps of fun. Do you know what you can do? Well on the last day of camp. We were allowed to do anything, like free time.i went jumping on the trampoline. The rules were that only one person was allowed, no shoe, Take turns and don’t move the trapline.

“Riverside Camp is the best!”

Grass to Glass


WALT add detail to the beginning of sentences.

Cooling and transportation:
When the milk comes out of the cow, first it is warm and then, the milk is cooled. While the milk is coming out of the cow the milk it warm, then you wait for a little bit and then the milk is cooled. As soon as the milk is cooled, it gets taken to the dairy factory.

Separation:
A machine separates the cream for the milk. The blue milk has lots of cream in it, the green milk only has a little bit of cream. Why there is lot of cream in the blue milk is because the cream get put back in.
Pasteurisation:
A machine heats the milk to 72 degrees celsius, then it cools down to 3 degrees celsius. If you don’t watch really closely, it can go past your eyes. Bacteria is killed by pasteurisation the milk.

My Conclusion:
The milk is finally piped into its different bottles. Next time you have a glass, think about all the steps it took to produce it.

because                             because 
34+158=192                     20+30+10=60
and there is an other way. 7+9+8=24
34+60=94                          and 60+24=84
34+60=94                          and there is a other way.
and then I add them            27+18=45
94+94=188+4=192              45+39=84

My Holiday writing


“Hey have you ever been to Matariki before”?
In the weekend, my brother, Arthur and I had stayed over my aunty’s and uncle’s, for a sleepover. We had to get up every single morning like about 6.00 or 7.00, to help out for Matariki. We also had to sell brownies, caramel slice and chicken carry We had made the most money because most people liked the chicken curry, and it was “$5 each.”

On Friday night, my cook island group, called Prediction, had performed on stage, at the matariki. Our costumes were a black t-shirt and a pariu . We wore this because it was so cold. Our first item was called G.I. Bules. That was the item I was in. The next one was the boys item, called Saturday Night Fever. After that it was The Sender. The Sender are the good performers in Prediction. This was the best part of our dance. All of the dancers were in the item. I am also a leader for the little ones - 5 year old to 10 year old. It was amazing.

On Saturday morning the East Cook Island community performed at Te Oro. “Hey have you been to te oro before?” Te Oro is the coolest thing I have ever seen. The first time I went to Te Oro, it was so big and there were face paintings and we all got bags filled with free goodies in them.
“Hey do you know why we celebrate Matariki? We  celebrate the first day of Maori new year.

My cook island group had performed on that day. It was freezing cold, and I was going to get sick. But at least I had lots of fun and it was so amazing. On Monday, the third day of Matariki, the East Cook Island community was performing and it was so cool. On Saturday was the best day of my life because there were colorful fireworks.

Did you know that it was so hard for my uncle and other people to  put up all the lights, and when the matariki it was finished. The people who put the lights up took them down. It took them two or three days, and me, my brother and my aunty was so bored because our uncle was not with us. But when it was down we had lots of fun going to the pools. We stayed there still 7.30 then we went home.

On Sunday we all went to hill slide and it was the best hill slide I had ever been to. If you go there then I think you would love it, because it is so much fun. If you go on a hot sunny day it will be fun. But if you go there on a rainy day it may not be fun for you.
