The term so far....

Term 4 so far has been amazing, sometimes there were some ups or downs I had in during the term. I really enjoyed making new friends and working with them.

Not long ago, Our class went to camp at Piha. I really enjoyed our time at Piha because everyone got to bond together and I learned loads of new things. Over the few weeks, everything has been amazing,I have learned so much
Once we went for a bush walk to the waterfall, It was amazing. The waterfall was so freezing but it was worth the walk. In the night we had to separate into our groups and had a turn going up the Burma trail. It was so scary, I was so scared I went back down and walked with Courtney. When I reached the finish, I was finally out .

Another thing we have is our Technology. Every Afternoon we (Room7) go to Selwyn College for our Technology. Our last few food we made was,Gingerbread cookies,Ice-cream in a bag,Ice-cream Kebab,Bread and more.Hmm.. I really enjoyed making it,But most of all, I really liked eating it. Hmmmm…...Delicious.   

Through the last few weeks, I had have a good week, Especially the Camp, I really enjoyed going there and want to go back. From Camp, I have learned to play Archery with Sonny. It was really complicated because it's was my first time playing. Out of all the experience I really enjoyed Camping at Piha and I wish to go back. Beside all of that,I have experience at lot of things.

Narrative Story

Brrriiiinnnnnggg!!!! I answered the phone, A netball coach asked me to play for their team. I was surprised to hear that, I quickly answered “YESS”, But I thought for a minute and quickly ran to my mum and asked. I was so happy, My mum had said “YESS”. They said the trainings are on Tuesdays and Thursday and the real game is on Saturdays.

Brrriiiinnnnnggg!!!! Another phone call, I answered the phone. Another netball team asked me to play for their team, I must be really good, I wanted to play for their team too, I quickly asked when is the trainings and game. She answered “The game is on Saturdays at around 2:00 o’clock or 3:00 o’clock. I said “YESS” because my other team's game is in the morning and the team that has rang is in the afternoon. I felt like a pop star. The first call, the name of the team is Rebels and the other team it called Stormers. My Rebels netball team’s game is in the morning at about 9:00am. My stormers team’s game is in the afternoon at  around 2:00pm.

Saturday came by and my first game is about to start, I arrived at the netball courts 10 minutes early. Then my team trained a little bit before the game had started. Rebels netball coach asked “You play GA”, “Yes” I answered. I thought for a minute,”Ohhhhhh I saw you at my other netball game” I asked and she said “Yeah that's why I called you” she answered back.

I have played really well, I shot goal for far distances and I have intercesped balls from going to the other team. After the last quarter we did our cheers and picked the players of the day. “I reckon that should is this player who has began to play for our team and I reckon she played really well and that person is Malia”. That was unexpected, I was so happy.

My parents came to me looking unhappy. “I am the player of the day” I said, “Lia you will have to quit” My parents answered. I went home looking unhappy,But first I went to tell my coach. When I arrive home I didn’t care at all .

I just listened to my mum and dad. I know I play really well, But I will listen to my Parents.

My Piece of Writing

Today I learned to use a prompt to write a Narrative story and write good Sentence
One morning I heard someone talking, WOW! I couldn’t believe what I saw with my two eyes and heard,
Its was my dog Whisky saying my name. He could really talk.

I could barely talk, I felt like I was daydreaming. I felt really dizzy and I felt like I was gonna fall into deep sleep. I was starting to to get really scared because it was unbelievable for a dog to talk.

I started to feel a little happier , I tried to tell my dog to do chores for me. Thank Goodness my dog listened and obeyed me. Everyday, I told my dog to do everything for me.

One day, my dog got really tired and ran away, I was treating my dog badly. I put up pictures of him, everyday , I just missed him. When I got home from work, “Hows about I am back” said my Dog, “Thank you God” I have found my dog.
Once we arrived back home, I stopped and thought, “I will never treat my dog badly ever again”.

Everyday Show

On Wednesday Room 7 went to Room 6 to watch a show called Everyday Show. Their acting was fantastic. It made me think about life. The everyday show was amazing because they had great acting skills. We did some mini games with them, It was fun. The reason why they came because they can share with us a game called “Family Reload”.  Family Reload is a game that has four lives,we get bonus points,Truth button,Help button and Safe button. The presenters has to ask questions about the story they told. Then they have answer the questions, I wasn’t sure what questions to ask.

Narrative Writing

Once upon a time, In a very far forest there lived trolls in a lovely beautiful island. Betty, Alana, Grace were there names. I was so happy to meet these lovely trolls because my brother and I had lost our family in a very bad crash. After meeting them, I was pretty excited to sing for them.

I quickly ran to my brother, and he rejected me so I sat down and sang songs to myself. After a while, I was feeling really sleepy. Suddenly everyone looked at me and told me to sing more songs.

I was spinning around and I felt really dizzy….BOOM!, Instead of the ukulele being in my hands, it ended up on my brothers head. My brother was really upset and went to sleep and so as everyone else. I decided to go to sleep too, because I would’ve been really lonely.

As the sun came up, I woke up and my brother was nowhere in sight. I went searching for him. I felt really sad. I saw my brother sitting near the trees and thinking about what happened yesterday. My brother decided to forgive me, so we both returned to the island and had the most amazing breakfast.


This is my DLO I created on fractions.

Trip to the Cathedral

Recount Writing:Trip to the Cathedral.

Last Friday, St Pius X School were invited to sing a song at the St Patrick Cathedral. We gathered together in the morning at school on went on a bus and off we went.

Once we arrived we all gathered on the footpath and quietly walked to the Church.
It was the Year of Mercy so we walked through the doors of Mercy. Later, We walked in we saw Random people were sitting in the Original part and we were sitting in the extension part of the church. Before church has started the church was really quiet and lots of people were praying. After we all had settled down, all of a sudden Father came out  singing and walking to the altar. While it was communion we sang a song called Bread Broken and everyone from the back came first, Then we went up for communion.

Once the mass had finished we took a photo with father and sat down just on the bottom of the altar and listened to father. We learned about a foundation rock,a song and we learned about the stain glass of Mary and Jesus, The Accession and the Assumption. It was finally finished, While we walked out father was singing “merciful like the father” and we blessed ourselves at the font. After that, we went into another building where we enjoyed our lunch and then back inside the bus and went back to school.

Science Trip

Science Trip

Room 7 and 5 had an opportunity to go and participate at a Science Roadshow at Tamaki College in the auditorium. Parents helped us with the transport and I went with my Mum.  When we arrived at Tamaki College we were waiting for the doors to open. Rain was just pouring down and it was freezing cold.

I have learnt new things and experience different science activity.  I liked the centre of mass station.  I have to work out where the centre of different shapes.  
I also like the station where we have to feel different objects inside a box.

We had to stamp our my card when we visited a station. I managed to do two stations.

Another thing I wanted to experience, but never got the chance was the colour combo because, I got my 2 stamps on my card. I went straight away and register for a prize. Sadly I did not get one. I really enjoyed the science show.
