A Letter To Mrs Wright

Dear Mrs Wright,

Thank you for the cool book that you have given me to read. I enjoy reading the rugby books that you have given to me. I also like how you help other people by paying for the books. I would like you to come to our school next year in 2013 to visit. You also helped me achieve my goals at school by reading lots of books.

When I leave school I hope you come to visit me at college and also bring me some more books so I can be a great reader.

Thank you so much, I wish you are merry Christmas.

Yours sincerely,
Room 3
St. Pius X Catholic School

Film Festival

On Wednesday we went over to the Manaiakalani Film Festival at the movies. We went on a bus but I didn't go with my class I went with room7. We had a child from room1 to look after but I didn’t have one so we went down to the bus we got on, then we left.

When we got to the theatre I went to the top, I was one of the lucky people because we got big chairs. I saw Oscar, he said to me to come and sit with him so I did, I was one of the lucky people.

After that I saw Ezra looking for a seat so I told
him to come and sit next to me and Oscar. There
was a button that you push and the chair goes up or down.

The movies started, it went dark and Mr Coakley came up and said “welcome everyone” he told us to enjoy the movies and don’t move out of our seats when the movies are finished. When Mr Coakley finished saying his speech the lights went off, it was very dark and fun when it was starting.

The movie I liked the best was Room 7’s because I liked the song they sang, which they also wrote themselves.

The Mysterious stone

I was walking down to the shop when suddenly I heard a rock coming down from space. When the rock landed everybody all looked at the rock. I walked closer to the rock and touched it, it was so hot.

I dialed 111 so the fire engine would come and have a look at the rock. I told everyone it was going to be all right because the Fire engine was on the way. They all said "thank God". 

After 1 minute the Fire engine arrived. They got the hose and pulled it out and hosed the rock. When they finished housing the rock the rock was smokey.

beginning where when who
middle what
end feeling about it all

At Saint Pius X School we had a musical evening. It was on the 30th of August. There were mums, dads, nanas, aunties and uncles

There was a BBQ at 5:30pm but the musical evening started at 6:00pm. When I got to school I saw Christopher, Frank and also Justin . When I went to buy my sausage I said to Frank “lets go and pick up Misoitei “ and he said “yeah lets go”, so we went. When we were halfway there we saw him coming with his mum so we run to him and then walked back to school.

The musical evening was starting so we went to the hall and sat down with our class. The Musical evening finally began. We started  off with a prayer from room 2, they sang a song. After that the room 7 girls came up and did a maori dance called “Tutira Mai”.

Later on it was our turn, we sang ‘Somewhere out there’ and ‘Puppet on a string’. When we got up to the stage I was nervous and I looked up, I laughed  and then I looked down. When we  started my aunties said my name very loud then I smiled. After that when my auntie said my name very loudly I I started singing again. Rachel and Ana sang the solo and we sing the choir part. I felt shy when we were singing especially when my auntie said “go Rachel”. Later on when it was finished we bowed and went to sit down.

My favorite part was room 7’s meke dance. I like about the Musical Evening because it was fun.

X Country Recount

On a beautiful day we had X country it was at St Pius X Catholic School. There were mums, dads and brothers also Nana's there watching the children race.  

When it was our turn I told frank “lets jog” and he said “yeah” and off we went. When we started the people in our race were running and me and Frank were jogging.  When they got down the hill they were puffed out and me and frank went past them. I said to Frank “let’s run a little or Mr Coakley will catch us on the way” so we ran then me and frank were tired so we jogged again.

When we were almost at school we ran and crossed the finish line and sat down at the same time and we came 4th. Mr Gaffeny said to go to Mrs William and Mrs William said “what did you come?” to me and Frank and me and Frank said “we came 4th“ and after that we went to sit down. I said to Frank “Frank we made it” and he said “yeah we did” and me and frank were so happy.

Netbook Description

My Netbook is really special to me because it was given to me.

My netbook is black with a shiny outside and raised keys on the keyboard. My netbook makes cool sounds  when the sound is on but in class we keep it off or on low so we don’t disturb others. My netbook Eee PC  feels smooth and slippery if I don’t hold it correctly.

My learning tool  is used in the classroom and after school I give it to the two girls to put in the C.O.W. to charge overnight. During the day when Miss G tells us to come to the mat we put our netbooks in our tote trays.
We use our Eee PC carefully and also we take care of our Eee PC.

Howick Historical Village

My favourite thing from our trip to Howick Historical Village was when we did the trolley, it was a bit hard. Our group went to look at the instructions.

After that we came back and carried on with our work. We got the big board and put two other pieces of wood next to it and then we put a screw and a washer in the holes. We did the next step, it said to put the meat poles into the wheel holes and then we put the pIns in the wheels so the wheels didn’t fall off. I told Andrew we were finished now and he said “yes” we were finished!

I found it easy because we had Andrew to help and I liked it because it was fun and cool.

Peculiar Person

I’m a most peculiar person,
As almost everyone knows.
I’ve a crown on the top of my head,
And nails grow out of my toes.

I’ve eardrums that help me hear.
And eyeballs that help me see,
And there’s even a mole on the tip of my nose,
Yes, there’s nobody quite like me.

I’ve got ‘mussels’ that grow in my arms and my legs,
And shoulder blades on my back.
I’ve a rib-cage to hold my heart in -
There’s really not much that I lack.

There’s a button that does up my tummy,
And my funny-bone keeps me amused.
When I look at myself in the mirror,
It’s no wonder I feel confused.

I’m a most unusual person,
And even my doctor agrees,
For that’s what he said when he came to examine
The caps that I have on my knees.

And I sometimes get pins and needles,
When it’s raining cats and dogs,
But what else could you really expect,
From a person whole throat’s full of frogs!
