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!

Is it Kind?

Kindness, kindness is one way to get friends or people to trust you or be your friend. When kindness is used it can cause a boomerang so it will spread around the area. Our Korero at assembly was Is it kind? So the point of this is that you make sure that what you are doing or saying to others are kind. You must always make sure that you are kind to others because it is a great source to find the right people to be your friend or trust.

8 Facts about Space

Space Narrative



It is 4017, Makayla and her personal buddy Greg the talking monkey are on a mission to look for a planet for the people of earth to live on. They have to find a planet because earth is dying and they need a new home. They have been flying for three weeks and they haven’t got any luck, what are they going to do?

Suddenly they found the planet they were looking for. They started to explore the planet to see if it was safe for their people. But then they saw some dangerous obstacles that they had to try and get through. So her and Greg decided that they have to try and make these obstacles less dangerous and more safe for families. So they were trying to think of an idea to make the obstacles easier and less dangerous for families and also little ones.

“Greg what are we going to do? These obstacles are way too dangerous for all the families” said Makayla. Suddenly Greg came up with a great idea. “We should try and find the best way around to make the trail more easier to pass” he said, “I don’t know Greg what if there is no more ways what if they are more dangerous” Said Makayla. “What if we try and chop down the obstacles, like we can chop down the spiky tree branches, we could make a path, or we can make our own way to the other side” she said. “YYEEAAHH we should find another way around” said Greg.

So Makayla and Greg walked around to look for another way around this small river. “Hey Makayla there is another path over there” pointed Greg, “oh yes I can see it, let’s go over there” said Makayla. So they went and ran to the other path. “This path is great, it’s not dangerous, it’s stable and more safer for families and there are no aliens here” said Greg. “Let’s go back home and tell the boss that we’ve found the right planet” said Makayla, “yeah your right, wait hang on what’s this planet called?” asked Greg. “Oh it’s called Makomi” replied Makayla. “Cool let’s go tell the boss” said Greg.

Makayla and Greg have landed on earth again. “Hello boss we have found a great planet, it is called Makomi” said Greg. “Ohh that’s great we’ll call all the presidents and the prime ministers to evacuate all their country to America for free. They can just use the planes without any fair tickets. Few days later, “ok everyone we will be moving to a safer planet named Makomi. You will be guided to the planet in a rocket ship, then we will take you to your new houses. But the houses aren’t flash because we are still trying to build the houses.

2: I'd go around the neighborhood every morning and evening and put up posters saying Keep NZ clean and stop LITTERING. So that it will encourage people to keep NZ clean and try to start picking up rubbish and stop littering.

3: I'd go around the neighborhood  picking up rubbish and also make a protest to make a cleaning NZ group.

WLJ Activity 2 Day 5


This is my DLO about my chosen person that was famous in NZ.

WLJ Activity 1 Day 5

"OH NO they've left me!!!" I was all alone in the Lewis Pass Scenic Reserve. "What am I going to do" I thought. I thought that I should try and keep walking to see if I find them stopped looking at a fascinating thing. I kept on walking and walking but I didn't seem to find my group. I decided that I should walk back to reception to ask to make a call out for my group to stop where they are and tell us where they are with the tour guide's walky talkie. They did a call out but it had seemed that my group had already left the reserve. I'm like "WWHHAATT". How am I supposed to get back to them I don't have any money. But then our tour guide took me back to my group at Nelson.

WLJ Bonus Activity Day 4

I think that fisherman should be banned from fishing at Farewell Spit. I think this because they have been killing our native hector's dolphins and every year there's been hectors dolphins getting killed. I think that that is not good because the hector's dolphin's are native and if they are getting killed every year then soon in the future they will be extincted.

WLJ Activity 1 Day 4


What the people of Picton had to do was, they had to drape drape t-shirts, towels and sarongs over the beached whales. They also had to try and use pots,bowls and more to carry water and drape it over the beached whales. There were also two people who had noticed it at first and that was a lady and a German tourist, the German tourist noticed it and rang the department of conversations then the news reporters.

WLJ Activity 2 Day 3

I think that New Zealand should be predator free. I think this because innocent farmers have to pay about $35 million dollars a year because of the possum damage. I also think that possums should go back to their natural home where they belong so that they don't cause trouble here in New Zealand. I also think that they shouldn't be in New Zealand because they have been causing a lot of trouble so if they are gone and New Zealand is predator free then there won't be any predator trouble for the government to fix.

WLJ Activity 1 Day 3

The animal to adopt that I have chosen is a Kea. A Kea is a apart of the family Strigopidae, it's scientific name is Nestor notabilis. It is found in forested and alpine regions of the South Island of the New Zealand. They are about 48cm (19 in) long. Most of the Kea is olive-green with a brilliant orange under it's wings. It has large, narrow and curved grey-brown upper beak, and did you know the Kea is the worlds only alpine parrot. The Kea's omnivorous diet includes carrion, but it mostly includes roots, leaves, berries, nectar and insects.

The Kea nests in burrows or crevices among the roots of the tree. I have chosen the Kea because they are mostly known for their intelligence and curiosity, both vital to their survival in a harsh mountain environment. Like did you know that the Kea can solve logical puzzles such as pushing and pulling things in a certain order to get to food, and will work together to archive a certain objective.
