Thank you!

Walt: using descriptive language


Dear Helpers and Organisers, I would like to say a huge thank you for helping our school organise this event. I really loved this event and it was really fun. I tried my best and it was amazing, Thank you so much.


Athletics day was so wonderful and full of joy. I had so much fun spending time with some friends and teachers. It was so hilarious watching others try their best and start laughing. It was such a great and fun day, I loved it so much.


My favorite part was when we watched the kids, teachers and parents have a race. It was so funny watching everyone run for their team and run their fastest. I was cheering my friend Santana’s mum and dad on, because they were apart of the parent team. Me and Santana are in the same house color so her mum and dad were racing for our house color.


Next year I am really excited for athletics, because I really love all the activities. I am also really excited to cheer on my friend’s and teachers. I am so excited for what’s going to happen at next year’s athletics.


I enjoyed watching others try their best and give it a try. I also enjoyed all the activities at this year’s athletics, it was amazing. I learnt that I could at least try do as much as cheering others on, and that I could try and encourage myself as well.

Term 4 Immersion Assembly Recount



Walt: use adjectives to improve our descriptive writing.

Have you ever seen your teachers sing like animals before? Yesterday Pt England had their term 4 Immersion Assembly. The assembly was about introducing the term’s topic to our school, which is called musical madness.

Team four’s topic is about creating our own music and sounds. The Team 4 movie was like a ad about Pt England music. It was incredible and crazy, the teachers were singing so funny and their actions were hilarious. I thought that the movie was so funny to watch.



I want to learn how people can edit songs so good. This is because I love the way people edit songs because then it gets released as a great song. But I hope that we learn to create our own music track and video.  I would love to make my own music track and video because it looks really fun.

I think that the Term 4 topic is so great and fun. I can’t wait to find out what we’re learning about, I’m so excited. I hope that we learn about music and different techniques.

Task Description:
For this task I had to write my recount about our school Immersion Assembly. Then once I had finished this recount I had to post it on my blog. I had to post it on my blog, but at a high quality. And that included the content, a WALT, Task Description and Labels.

Star Dome trip

Walt include a variety of sentence types in our writing

On Friday last week Team 4 went to Stardome. We were split into 3 groups, and went at different times. Have you ever been to Star dome before?

Once it was our turn we went inside the Observatory and went into a room and listened to a guy talk about the solar system. We already knew a lot about the solar system but he taught us even more, at first I was like “what are you talking about”. But then he started to talk even more and then he taught us a lot more about the solar system. After that he told us that we were going to do a quiz about what we just learnt. Then we had to go back to our groups and get ready for the quiz.


Once it was time to do our quiz we got into our groups and started. But our group was split in half, so the girls in our group went in one group and the boys in our group went in another group. Our group leader for our group was Tenei, she leaded our group and told us what we had to do. So to do our quiz we had to look for the pictures and read the articles to find our answer. There were a lot of questions and once we had finished we had to hand it to the lady.


After the quiz we went into this room, where we watched a movie about the solar system. The movie was cool but it made me feel motion sick. While I was watching the movie my friend Santana felt sick, she told me that she felt like she was going to faint. Then I started to freak out and told her to look at the chair. Then I started to watch the movie again, and then
I looked at Santana and then she fainted. Then I had to tell a teacher and I felt sorry for Santana.


At Star dome I learnt that the sun is more than five thousand km. I also learnt more about the planet in our solar system. I would love to go back to Star dome again and learn even more about space.

Cross country recount



Walt: structure a recount

On Friday last week we had our school cross country run. It was so tiring and muddy at the same time, and It was really hard and exhausting. Have you ever participated in a cross country run before?
As I was sitting on the hot hard court I was waiting for my turn to run. As the other kids ran I watched them to see who came 1st, 2nd and 3rd, I was so hot just sitting on the court it felt like I was burning. I really wanted a water so I went for a water, and it felt so nice and cold. I was sitting with a lot of my mates and so we just sang some songs and played some hand games. Then suddenly Mrs Nua called up the year 6 girls to come and get ready to run.

Once we stood at the starting line Mr Burt gave us a pep talk. Once he gave us a pep talk we got ready, then BANG!!! goes the clapper and we all started our cross country run. During the run I got so muddy and tired. I was so hot while I was running and I got a stitch. I was running with my friend Venice, we ran every time we weren’t tired then when we got tired we took a deep long rest. So then I started jogging in the end straight after I had got to the finish line. I had finally finished the race with a big great sprint.

Once I had finished the race I went and got a water because I was huffing and puffing. Then after that I went and saw my aunt's with my other cousins and had a little rest. After I visited my aunt’s I went and sat down with my friends, we sat there and talked about the race until we had to go back to class. After my long and exhausting race I was so tired, and when we got to class we went to our home classes and rested until the bell. Then once the bell went we all went  home and then I got the rest of my life.

Cross country was so hard, I tried my best and I did well. I learnt that when you do cross country that you will get tired. But I also learnt that if you get tired it doesn’t affect your running, you can still run but you just need a little rest and once that rest is over you can start running again. Next time what I’ll do is I’ll jog at the beginning and sprint at the end for a good finish.

Task Description:
For this task I had to write a recount about cross country. I had to write a recount about the cross country that was held at our school, we had to explain what happened on that day. Once I had finished this I had to post it on my blog with a title, WALT, Task Description and labels.

My Term 2 Rubric Reflection

My rubric score for term 2 was a great score. I think that it was not too bad and not too high and I am really proud about it. Part of my score was going to 4.5 out of 5 as I had a high level of contribution towards the production, and had a very good performance on stage. I also got a score which was 3 for some contribution towards group discussion.

Luckily I know for next time to contribute more in our group discussions/forum in the Paideia seminar. This is where I scored my lowest mark. My goal for our next Paideia seminar is to contribute more and give out more information.

Once on a normal day Makayla and her seven minions were called into the NASA space HQ. Their boss Mr Sommerville told them they had to go to space to check the 8 planets in our solar system. “Ok let’s get ready then” said Makayla. So Makayla and her seven minions got ready to go to space.

“This is the rocket you are flying on. It is the fastest rocket for our space station. Here you go get in and fly out of here” said Mr Sommerville. So Makayla and the minions got into the rocket, and got ready to blast off. Countdown 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 BLAST OFF!

“Well here's Mercury the teeny weeny planet of all. Let’s go check on it” Said Makayla. “Wow this place is very small. I need to sit down, OUCH my bum is hot. You dumb bum” said Makayla. “I don’t like this planet it’s way too hot” said a minion. “Let’s go to Venus instead” Said Makayla. So Makayla and the minions got into the rocket, and got ready to blast off. Countdown 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 BLAST OFF!


“Ok here’s Venus the second planet from the sun.
