Nebook Reflection

I like to go on my net book because when we get to write and there a mistakes we get to undo it. Another thing was when we are writing we get to share with the world on our blogs.

This year I have really enjoyed having a Netbook to work on because we can do anything like write our writing on a google doc. And also we can check our site to see what we are going to do on our timetable.

As much as I have loved having a Netbook there are some things that I haven’t liked. When we are writing it is always tries to reach Google and it is annoying. When we are trying to connect with Google and it does not connect we have to re connet with Wairehe.

The big difference from pencil and paper last year to this year there a huge differences.One of them are like when we are writing on paper and pen we strugle to rub out with a rubber. Because makes a mess.

The hardest thing is when we are on our Netbooks it is so distracting that we always want to go on games or anything else.The greatest challenge for me was every week on Fridays our class room 13 gets to have free time that means we get to do any thing but not go on youtube or anything else that’s not appropriate. I think that I am not Cyber Smart cause going on our
Netbooks can be distracting.

If the Netbook Scheme failed and I would never give up and still write with pen and paper.I think that would be a very sad thing to do. It would be very different without a Netbook because it is so much easier to write with.

The Problems

1. How would you feel if you were in a huge storm in Saturn? This was its five hundred time bigger than anything like it ob versed by the Casini Mission in the last two years. Saturn’s releasing lightning bolts are a rate of ten per and it’s happening ten times more than other storms monitored since 2004. Another problem was if you try to live on Saturn you would have no air and no water to drink.

The Solutions

2. Solution number -1.
I would be scared if their was a huge storm .Would you? This was the biggest storm that I have ever heard of like it obveresd by the Casini Mission.This was a very huge storm.

3. Solution number -2.
On Saturn there are different things like many problems as known no air or water.So you cant drink any water or you cant Breath. That is a sad thing that Saturn does not have these things. Water or air.

4.Solution number-3
Also Saturn can have HUGE STORMS like it was a big storm than any other storm. It’s huge storms are bigger than any storm of course not Jupiter’s storms. Another thing was if you try to land on Saturn you would melt into the ground because did you know that on Saturn the ground is not solid.

5.The best Solution would be that Another was if you try to live on Saturn you would have no air and no water to drink. On Saturn there are different things like many problems as known no air or water.So you cant drink any water or you cant Breath.

6. I wonder if any one in the future would go to Saturn?

Our Trip To the Stardome (One Tree Hill)

“Why are we walking up that hill?” I bravely asked. Hot and thirsty.Gracefully

at school, my feet hurt” whispered to my self.

Outta This World!!

My name is Sela and I am a the astronaut. What I’m going to do is to save the world be all the space junk so the world would be safe. but first I need my gear.

While waiting for the countdown quickly I got into the rocket. “there goes the countdown” I said to my friend. The planet that we are going to visit was Mars, Venus also and Saturn.

3,2,1 BLAST OFF!!Struggling to sit in my chair I started to float in the air.While sitting on the chair the rocket cut through the sky and made a huge boom!! “Ahhhhhh”! I yelled.

“Yes” I said. Did you know that we are half way past Earth”?. That is a very big planet that I see. My imaginary planet is called Pizza Planet, what is yours?

Alien Snot

“I don’t want to make alien snot that is so disgusting” I whispered to my self. But then I just had to wait and see if it was disgusting.

The method of making the alien snot was: 1 cup of cornflour A little water Green food colouring. “Yuck!! I hate that smell get it away from me” As I said in my head.

While waiting for Miss King to pour the Green food coloring in we waited quietly. "Finally" I whispered to my self. "Is our Alien Snot finished" I asked Miss King.

Did you know that first the snot is hard then when you touch it is soft. At first I thought it was disgusting, but then it wasn't. That looks like real snot. I wonder what a real aliens snot looks like?

"Yeah our Alien Snot is finished Is yours? I cant wait to make it again that was a lot of fun making alien snot.

Ice Cream Comets

“Eww!! Yuck”!! I said. “Do we really have to roll the Ice Cream in our hands?” “That is so disgusting, my hands might freeze’’ I whispered to my self.

The ingredients were: Chocolate Ice Cream, Cones, Hundreds and Thousands and also crushed biscuits.

As Miss King scooped the Ice Cream into my hands it quickly dripped through my fingers like sand. “Brain freeze! Brain freeze!” I cried.

Hundreds and thousands everywhere along the ground that was a very huge mess.

“Mmmmm!! Yum.“My hands are cold “Can I use napkin” I said to Whaea Janeille. “NO your hands are already dried” Whaea Janeille shouted.

But I just realised that all the comets are different sized but at least we still made a comet. “ Mmm Yumm”! I shouted. “Miss King can I have some more ?” I yelled.

Shattering into pieces the comets looked like little balls of mud.” That was a delicious comet. My stomach was begging for more.

Lift Off!!

Shaking and shuddering, my legs had pins and needles . I was sweating everywhere, while sitting strapped on the chair. Soon the shuttle would be leaving earth.

While waiting for the countdown I filled with nervous excitement. “I am very scared” I whispered to myself. While waiting for the countdown my ears were shattering because of the noise from the rockets.

Here came the call for the countdown 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. “It feels like I am going to faint” I said. “Ignition” the call cried. There was another noise again “BOOOM!!” I was frightened of the noise!

I hope next time I wouldn’t feel scared when we get on the rocket again. That was a very frightened adventure but lucky I was safe.

Warriors vs Manly Sea Eagles

Me anga tatou ki te rekareka - Let’s have some fun! Rugby league brings people together. “First try to Manly Sea Eagles” My cousin yelled. League fans yelling “ GO WARRIORS”

While walking to the field mighty strong warriors sang the National Anthem at the Australia, Sydney stadium. So lucky that the game was on Saturday. “ Yeah” My cousin shouted “Manu Vatuvae scored the first try for the warriors.

Sadly the warriors lost to the team Manly Sea Eagle.The crowd in Australia cheered “GO MANLY SEA EAGLES” the crowd went wild. That was a very sad game for the Warriors but that was a very lucky try to Manly Sea Eagles.

That was a great game that the warriors played but still the warriors tried their best to get more scores, I hope they will try their hardest, I hope they win next time.

Aussie Rules!!

Aussie Rules is a strange game that is similar to rugby, basketball and netball. At Pt England School, we have been learning how to play this weird sport.
I thought that this game was going to be frustrating on the week that we started, then four weeks later I am getting better and better.

As I was running around, the weather was such a pain, it was so changeable. We had all four seasons in one day - rain, wind and sunshine! I was scared that there might even be a storm. Luckily though, it didn’t rain!

For a warm up we played a game that was called Bumper Jumper. This is a game that requires a partner. Both people hop and try to knock each other off their feet. I lost against Lesieli.

For our next activity, we learnt a skill that taught us how to bounce the ball while running. Fumbling out of control - I was unable to catch the ball. It was so very tricky.

All Blacks Haka

Why did the All Blacks do their haka?It was to support New Zealand and their Team, when the all blacks were doing their haka, it looked intimidating and was a very tough challenge. As the All Blacks did their haka it looked like the opposition team was afraid.

The haka was a intimidating performance for New Zealand. Through t slitting and lots of passionate confidence. As Piri Wipu did through t slitting the opposition team was afraid.

Accurately hitting the shuttle in the air, it looked like it was a bird. Concentrating on the shuttle, quickly Mary served. As the shuttle was spinning in the air I heard a pinging noise.

Running back and forth, I saw powerful hits as I served. While Mary served, she said to me “ You can do it Sela but keep trying”. Carefully aiming at Mary’s Racket a shuttle had hit me in the head.I said to Mary “ That was a great serve”.

Then Donna taught us a game called Badminton Soccer. As I was watching the girls play, I saw lots of frustrating serving going on. When my friend gave me the racket, I was the one that had to serve. I thought in my head “Sela you can do it”.

I saw spectacular hits, and saw Donna giving us a example. I learnt a forehand, backhand and a trick shot. As I hit the shuttle with my racket, I heard a pinging noise. Have you ever played Badminton?

In New Zealand we have different multicultural people,and we have unique things. In New Zealand we have fun sports to do, and people enjoy it. NZ is a very small country now, because millions and millions of years ago New Zealand was connected to to Australia, then NZ broke of Australia and made their own country. New Zealand is an isolated but special country.

Buzzy Bee
Buzzy Bee is New Zealand’s famous toy. And all most every child has a buzzy bee. It was made in a small workshop in the 1930’s in Auckland. Nearly every every New Zealander’s love buzzy bee.


In New Zealand many people wear Jandals in Summer , because its hot. In Australia people call Jandals flip flops. Flip Flops is another way of calling them Jandals. The reason why people wear Jandals is because sneakers are really hot to wear.

I hope you have learnt something new about our amazing country and that you HAVE A GREAT TIME AT THE RUGBY WORLD CUP!!!!! AND GO ALL BLACKS!!!!

Ma'a Nonu

Weaving in and out, the mean machine Ma’a Nonu went through the opposition line.
Down the field he ran away fast to dive through the try line. Slipping out of the tackle he barged through the opposition team and side stepped through them. He used his great skills to smash in and try to get the ball.
The charging bull Ma’a Nonu quickly passed the ball to his team mate. There were lots of players that had been tackled down, but there was one man who was still standing and he had the ball, his name -Ma’a Nonu. He ran through them to get a try. Horray! The All Blacks cheered.

Design Uniforms ( Technology Project)

The problem is that when it rains like in the morning if its rains and you are walking we just have our own water proof uniform. Just a reminder the pants is just normal like now.
I choose this design so it can make people come to school.
This design makes it better because it is better than before.
My new uniform is going to be made out of polyester because it is going to be a beauty than before.

The problem is that one day if it is freezing you get to have your own Jumper. Just another quick reminder our pants are short and you get to fold it And if you get to hot you can take off you jumper and wear your T-Shirt. The one thing that I have to fix is to make it more interesting.

I choose this design so it can make people come to school.

This design makes it better because it is going to be gorgeous than now.

My new uniform is going to be made out of Cotton because I know that it would be better than before.

As Doc reversed out of the driveway the delorean made a screeching noise from the wheels. Marty quickly said to Doc “Hey Doc, we better back up, we don’t have enough road to get to 88.” He felt worried that something dangerous might happen. Jennifer didn’t even know what was going on she was frozen, she also was nervous and she looked very was sick. “Roads. Where we’re going we don’t need roads. Quickly Doc reached out his glasses from the back of his head and was pressing buttons at the same time. The car sped off into the air in the bright sunshine and with a burst off fire.

Sentence Beginning

Our class Room 13 were learning about feature and great paragraphs. One of the important reasons why you make sure that your sentence have variety of a sentence beginning. Our classroom read Toreka's story
that is called What an Ambush'' and then we highlighted all the beginnings of her sentences. When we have highlighted it we turned it into a color and then we copy it to
wordle.net to give our class some great ideas to learn how to start our sentence starters. The also idea is that making sure that the important reasons why you need a variety sentence start is because it has to sound intresting or Great and Amazing but it doesn't have to be Amazing, Great or Intresitng so that it is the idea.
