Boss baby

Image result for boss babyMy holiday was fun and I got to have fun with my friends. I will tell you what I did in the holidays. On Friday my friends and I went to silver park to watch a movie call Boss Baby. We arrived there on a bus and had to pay $6 altogether. Once we pay'd off our ticks we waited till the movie started, it was also not cheep but we had enough to watch what we came here for.

3 minutes later we got our set's, and watched the add's. it took too long for the movie to start, so we ate our pop corn and waited. Then this was it when the movie finely started. There were some funny part and sad parts. But my favourite part was when the baby came back to see the family he was with before he went back to where he came from. 

The sad part was so sad, I had a little cry and the a funny part came up and then it was so funny that one of my friend had to go toilet. The ending was sad but then cute. because the baby had to go back to where he had come from. Then the baby came back to the family and lived his life.

What is polyfest?
Polyfest is the largest Maori & Pacific Island cultural festival of its kind in the world. Polyfest 2017 will be expecting 9,000 students from about 59 schools and 200 performing groups also, to perform through speech, song, and dance, their cultural experience.
The festival was founded and begun in 1976 as a showcase for Kapa Haka and Pasifika cultural items, by Dunedin Primary Schools.

Activities / stations
One of the activities me and my group went to was the AUT. What we did was looked at the thing we needed to learn more about, and to help other people in their life. Second station we went to was one of my favourite ones of all, It was watching Fiji’s dance group, What an amazing team.

Favourite part of the day?
The best part of the day was when we got to get ice blocks, dickens and many more from the coolies teacher ever Mr Wiseman.
I have had him for two year and he has always been the best.
My second favourite part of the day was when when we got to spin the wheel and had to wait for it to stop, to see if we had won or lost.

Something you learnt?
One of the things I had learn at poly, was what do you do when there is a fire. One of them was not to put water in the pot of fire. Second was to put a wet tea towel over the pot or the pan, and last but not least, put over a chopping board over the pot.

It was amazing at poly. I have had to best time of my life, with my best friends and other people. Year 7&8’s are so thankful for our teacher. They are the one that had did this for us. Thank you PT England Teachers.

How to have a fun weekend.

How to have a fun weekend.
After all the work you have done at school, it is your time to have fun after school on Friday. Here are some thing you might want to do in the weekends

When it’s Friday night you could go with your friend or families to the Movies, or also could go to the Movie in the park for free.
There are all kinds of movies you could watch like, Moana, Trolls, Sing The Book of life and also Harry Potter.

On a sunny day you might like to go out and have a picnic at the park with your family, and also might have a game for a club. The beach will be fun if there are lots of people you know and that will come and make your day. If there is nothing for you to do, you could go to the internet cafe with some mates from school, or just hang out with your brothers or sisters and also play some card games with them.

In the weekend it is your time to have fun after the school works you have do. Go out and play, hang out with your mates, or go do something fun with your family. If there is nothing to do at home, call your friends and ask them if them might want to have a sleep over.

Do something in the weekends. “HAVE FUN”!

Why we need water?

Why People Need to drink water?

People need to drink water, but why? I will tell you in the box down below me

Humans need to drink water to survive, and it is also good for your body and your kidneys. It has no fat and it better than fizzy drinks. Water can make you strong and can also cleans your body. When we  drink water, 80% of it is in our body.

Your body is approximately 60 percent water, your brain is 70 percent water, and your lungs are nearly 90 percent water.   

Each day, your body must replace 2.4 liters -- or about 2.5 quarts of water -- through ingested liquid and foods.

Drink water so you can be a good sport player, and also it is good for your health.
Drink Drink Drink, Water Water Water
