Today was the last day of Skids

I also can’t wait until we get to go camping for a day. Not from morning to night, from morning to afternoon. I can’t wait because then we get to have a nap in our tents and play camping games. I’m also excited to go there because I love to camp.

Today @ Skids

Today I went to my holiday programme called Skids. In the morning we just played around in the hall then around about nine-thirty we sat on the mat to do the roll call. Then after that we were in groups with a Skids teacher, I was with Millie. On that table we were making angels or a christmas tree. I made an angel and it was very hard. And my angel looked ugly because I rushed.

Bye Bye fans

Hi fans today is the last day that I get to use my chromebook in 2016. That means this is my last  blog post until the holidays, so that means there won’t be any new updates on my blog. And on Friday will be the day we start our holidays. That means I have to leave my wonderful literacy and maths teacher Mr Goodwin. But my homeroom teacher Mr Baxendine has to leave Pt England school forever.

I have one memory that will stay with me my whole life and that was when my coolest friend Paikea and her dad took all the year 5 Sparkles to megazone. Then we went to the Pools, and Paikea’s dad and mum made us some food after we had a swim.

Letter to John Key

Pt England School
130 Pt England Road
Pt England

Thursday 25 August 2016

Dear Prime Minister John Key,

Talofa Lava my name is Makayla. I am sending this letter to you to write about the problem of pollution and plastic waste. Did you know a NZ bird, Black petrel approached shore sick. Someone was generous enough to take it to the marine hospital and it died a few moments after because it had eaten a dark blue milk bottle cap. So I stand up for our birds that are sick and dying out in our seas.

You need to let more people know that they shouldn’t be throwing their plastic waste through the drain, because it reaches to the sea and it makes our sea look untidy. That means it would affect our seabirds, and that makes them get very sick and die because of plastic waste.

Therefore I think that you need to make a law statement explaining like I said that they need to stop dropping their plastic waste into the water drains. If they don’t listen to this law then they might have to be fined for littering their rubbish through the drains. Or you can put more people out in public to clean the drains because the drains are full. If you don’t do this then all of our native birds will die because of plastic waste.

Yours sincerely,


Task Description: First we watched a few video's about plastic waste and it going to the sea and talk about it. Then we had to write a practise letter to John Key but we are arguing. then we had to post it on our blog.

It's the first day of the Olympics

Today was the opening of the Rio 2016 Olympics. The only people that compete in the Olympics are the bestest people at their sport in the country that they represent.The Rio 2016 Olympics is an event where heaps of athletes come from their countries and play sports to represent their country, if they come in the top 3 they will get a medal. If you come 1st you get a gold medal,if you come 2nd you get a silver medal and if you come 3rd you get a bronze medal. 

At this Olympics I am excited to see Usain Bolt drink Gatorade. I am also excited to watch Valerie Adams throw the heavy shot put. I was wondering if Valerie Adams is going to come first at her sport. I can't wait to watch the Olympics this year because it is going to be exciting and fun. 

This year I want to watch gymnastics because I like the technique of their acts and I love the music. I hope there will be a New Zealander gymnast there and that they come in the top 3. I also want to watch Usain Bolt sprint down the track and come 1st. This year I am excited for the Rio 2016 Olympics. 

Advice blog

Walt: synthesise information from multiple sources
Task Description: I had to do a advice blog. I had to give advice to a random person that was on this presentation. Then I had to post it on my blog.

Descriptive Writing-Extension

All the men in the 100m final started stretching and preparing themselves for the race. The packed out crowd at the Olympic Stadium were cheering loudly as the men were preparing. The race official said “on your marks” and the men knelt down and put their feet on the starting blocks. The crowd went crazy.

Suddenly the race official said “get set” and then the men put their bottoms up and hands on the ground. Moments later the gun went off and the men started to sprint down the track. The crowd cheered louder for the men as they were sprinting. The men were sprinting as hard as they could so that they could get a medal. Their bodies were moving their fast and quick. The men started to approach the finish line. Then suddenly Usain Bolt came 1st in the race.

Everyone cheered for Usain Bolt as he came 1st in the race. He was so proud of himself because he came 1st. When the race had finished the top three runners went to get their medals. As soon as Usain Bolt had been given his gold medal he did his special move. The cameraman kept taking photos of him while he was walking away.

If I was an Olympic athlete

Walt: use a plan when writing.

This year it is the sporty and tough Rio 2016 Olympics. I am competing in the high hurdles for NZ. Hurdles is where you sprint on the track then you approach a fence like hurdles that you jump over. I have been training hard and long for 4 yrs and now at the Olympics it will be time for me to pay off all my good training and exercise.

At the Olympics I will be competing in Hurdles. I am competing in hurdles because I like to jump and run. This Olympics I will be fast and strong. I love jumping over hurdles especially I love to jump. I am going to try my best at hurdles because I trained a lot and now it’s going to pay off at the Olympics.

This year in the Olympics I will be representing New Zealand in hurdles. I am representing NZ because that is where I am from and I was born as a nice and strong kiwi. I will win for NZ and I will be a champion. NZ I will win a gold medal for you.

At the Olympic games I think the ceremony will be great and cultural. I will be nervous in hurdles but this event is dedicated to my family and NZ. Once I win and I walk with the NZ flag I will take pride in my competition. I will be happy if I was the winner and I will be grateful of what I have been given.

My thoughts towards Olympics is try your best and train hard. Another thought is remember to just be brave and try your best. But the thing you need to do is be grateful of what you’re actually doing and just be happy. Most of all be proud of yourself and just do your best you don’t always need to win.

Task Description: First I had a plan on how the structure of my story was. Then I had to write a 5 paragraph story about myself being in the Rio 2016 Olympics. Next I had to post it on my blog with a WALT, picture of the Olympic rings,labels,great title and a task description.

Teuila and the great white shark

Teuila’s heart was pounding as she was being chased by a great white shark. She was exhausted from swimming so hard, but she knew that as a warrior she could do anything to escape situations like this. Teuila had a lifetime ahead of her and she didn’t want to die.

But the problem was that she was swimming far away from her tribal village. She knew she had to escape from the shark but she also knew that she had to get back quickly to her village. She thought that someone could see her but no one had noticed that she was gone.

Suddenly the shark gave up and she swam away.  Teuila spotted an island in the distance. Limping out of the water she noticed that she had a very bad cut on her leg. She found two sticks and used them as walking sticks.

After what seemed like a long time, Teuila found a little hut in a small village. She barged in and looked for someone to help her. An old lady said “Hello are you ok?” “No I have hurt my leg badly and I need to fix it” said Teuila. “Oh sure I can help you” said the old lady as she helped Teuila. After a long time it was starting to get dark. The old lady said “Oh no there is a storm about to hit”. “What? No! There can’t be! I have to get home!” Teuila said.

“Go to sleep and we will get you home tomorrow” said the old lady. The next morning Teuila woke up to a village that looked like it had been destroyed. “Oh my goodness that storm must of been big” said Teuila. The old lady said “Yes, yes it was”. Suddenly the old lady said that her grandson had a boat, and that he could take her home. “Why thank you. Now I can see my family again” said Teuila gratefully.

“TEUILA where were you?” said Teuila’s mum. “Sorry mum it’s a long story”. “I’m so happy that I’m back” Teuila said. She explained how she had been chased by a shark, getting lost and then surviving a storm. Her family were so relieved to hear that she was ok. That night, Teuila’s family made a huge feast to welcome her back. Then they lived happily ever after.

Task Description:This is my narrative story about my Maori or pacific warrior Teuila. I also have a image of her in the village. She is with the old lady that helped her.
