A Christmas Story

Christmas from Team 4 Pes on Vimeo.

In Christmas there was a family of three children without their parents. The parents were gone somewhere for dinner. The three children's names and age are Sela -13, Jordenne-12 and Iron-9. They were decorating their christmas tree for Christmas morning.

When they finished they all went to sleep. “Time to go to bed” Sela shouted. About 2 hrs later Santa came with his Reindeer’s. “Ho ho ho Merry Christmas” Santa shouted as he landed on the three childrens roof.

He jumped off the sleigh and pulled out the childrens present, then he popped inside the chimney.A red crayon dropped, it was Irons present. Her were crayons. Iron loves crayons.
As he hopped inside the chimney, he suddenly got stuck. Santa tried to breathe  his hardest, but then he was too fat and suddenly he farted.

“Aaaaahhhh” Santa sighed. He looked down and saw him already on the ground.
Santa looked up and saw the chimney in 1,000 pieces because of his fart. The smell was everywhere. “What happened??” Santa asked himself.

“Ohh wait, I think it was my fart. I better put these presents quickly before the kids wake up”.
So Santa quickly got the presents and put it under the tree. He went outside and hopped on the sleigh.”{]

Santa flew into the sky and shouted “HO HO HO Merry Christmas”. The next morning Jordenne and Sela went downstairs and saw the chimney broken so they screamed. “Aaaaahhhh what happened to our chimney??”

So they kind of didn’t care because they wanted the present more. Jordenne went upstairs and got Iron. She was still sleeping. “Iron wake up now!” Jordenne shouted.
Iron woke up and came downstairs with me.

“What happened” Iron asked. Jordenne replied “Who cares just open your present”.
Iron opened her presents. “Wow coloring pencils yay!. But where is the red crayon.
“Nooooooooo” Iron shouted.

Hope you will enjoy our movie!!

The Last Day Of 2012 at School

Throughout all this year I have had a great time, with our great teacher Miss King. She has taught us in the ages of 9 and 10. I have made great friends in this classroom like my best friend, Jordenne and Iron. Today we so many moments with our year 8's that are leaving and teachers too.

Many of the teachers and students were so COOL. Miss Burne that is going to leave us too the Museum in Auckland. Mr Harris that is going to his home town Australia. Mr Jacobsen our  Music teacher that is going to move on, and Miss Reid that was the BEST EVER Reading teacher.

Walking into the hall for our last Assembly for the year tears from my eyes started to drip. Finally walking over to my teacher and Friends I started to cry. Sadly walking to my friend I hugged her so tightly I couldn't even let go. One of my friends from Extension was leaving us. She was so talented, so tall and a great friend to talk too, her name was Jonita.

Well this is all I am telling you what happened today the last day of the year. Wish you a Merry Christmas and a safe and HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I hope I will be with the same teacher next year!!

My First Senior Prize giving

Well throughout all this year we had celebrated a great end with Prizegiving. We had, Items, Kapa Haka performances and receiving prizes. Did you know that I was one of the first persons to get a prize from the Year 5’s.

We were the first age group to perform to. Getting onto the stage I started to shake and shiver. Finally we had finished our Item. Next on it was the year 6’s they had the best Item that I have ever seen. When they first had received their prizes they had called out the sports awards for the Primary.  

I was so surprised that they had called out my name for representing our school in Rugby and Netball. My friends have had this certificate too. Then when all of our years 5 to 8’s had finished, at the end we had sang our school song.

As our Prize Giving had ended I had ran to my mum and showed her all my Awards. Saying “ Good work Sela keep working hard at school, School first mucking around second” My mum said to me with a smile on her face.

What is Perimeter?? Perimeter is telling how far the outside of a shape is. Well on this site I have learnt so many things about Perimeter. Here is a picture that I did on this site.

Tuesday, December 11, 2012


What is Symmetry?? Today we have learnt what Symmetry is. Symmetry is Rotational and is Reflective. Here are my pictures that I did on these sites. It is so cool you should check it out and learn it!!


One of the reasons I want to to be an Ambassador is to talk to very important people including teachers around the world. Talking to people is what I like doing!! Learning, Creating and Sharing is what I LOVE to do, mostly sharing my work  with the world. The most amazing thing that I think I like doing is to write and read. Mostly Reading is the top of things I enjoy!

Now its time to tell you about my Learning and Creating. Learning new things this year and last year has been so different, using Netbooks. These past few weeks and terms I have enjoyed making this movie and putting it on my blog. I have created it on IMovie.  

These past few terms we have had Extension, and in Extension we had to make Thai Fish cakes. We learnt a new recipe, then we created it and at the end we shared it with the world!! At school I have learnt so many things!! So many things I say. In our class we have created learnt and shared many movies. This Link is to my movie that me and my group made. We also learnt new skills by making this movie. We created it using IMovie and then Sharing it with the world on our blog and on PENN.

Every Term I always start with a ANIMATION.Well did you know that this term I am finishing off so many things even pictures that need drawing? Here is a link to My Toy Story Animation.

I think being an Ambassador is giving me an opportunity to learn how to speak clearer to others and will help me in the future by teaching me new skills. That is all I really want to be an Ambassador.

My 2012 Manaiakalani Reflection

Wow this year has been so AMAZING! What I have really enjoyed about being in yr 5 was sharing my work with the world and learning to write Narratives. The best that happened this year was Making movies and sharing it with the world.

From the start of the year I think that learning, creating and sharing with the world has been the BEST THING TO DO!! My goals for next year are to always answer my Glossary test for Maths, and to speak clearly to my Teacher and visitors.

Throughout this year I think that Learning, Sharing and Creating my work has been so coooool. I think that learning this year has been so amazing, I have learnt different at school with many ways. Like learning on, Ipads, Tablets, Ipods, Netbooks and even more.

I don't really want to go from year 5 but still I need to move on:(

Goldilocks Narrative

Walking through the woods, three bears went off to wait for their porridge to warm up. Suddenly a little girl named Goldilocks entered the three bears cottage. Yelling “ HELLO! Through the door nobody answered. Smelling that delicious porridge she sat on to Mother Bear’s chair and said “ To soft” Then she walked to Baby bear’s chair and sat then said “ this is just right.
As she finished eating her porridge she walked slowly up the stairs and into the three bears room. Into the Moms bed and said “ To soft” Into the Dad’s bed and said “ To hard” Walking fast to little ones bed she said “this is just right”

Off the bears came

Goldilocks: Goldilocks is a little girl that lives in the woods. She has blonde hair and it is curly. Her skin colour is tan. Goldilocks also lives near three bears in the woods.Goldilocks looks this was because she just got told off to get out of the Three Bears cottage. ( She looks Furious)

Baby bear: Baby bear is a little boy that has one Mom and one Dad. He also lives in the woods. The  little baby bear looks this way because he just finished sleeping. He is dressed this way because he is getting ready to go and join the circus also his Mom and Dad.

The Manaiakalani Education Trust. In Tamaki we are starting to throw away our papers and pens and work with Netbooks. Many people are helping to get new things for Manaiakalani and people are also helping to pay children’s Netbooks as well.
I would just like to say Thank you to all the people that helped us a lot.  Really I would like to thank my parents and all the teachers. Right now we wouldn’t have Netbooks in Tamaki. But with the great teachers we have, we have what we want. Mostly I would like to thank Mr Burt and Mrs Burt for helping us getting these Netbooks.

Film Festival Review

Why should you watch this movie? Well I think that you should watch this movie because they have all that you want. Dancing and going everywhere where you want to go. They got all the things you  need great talent and some great Dancers too.

This movie was made by Tamaki students. I know that this movie is cool because of their great acting and the different places they went. With the song they choose and the great people they choose from their school to participate.

With all their great talent I rate this as a 10/10. This song that they choose is already sang by Fuse and the song is called Azonto. This wasn’t what I expected but it is still at the top of the list for me. That is why I think you should watch this movie.

My Life With Toys

These past few weeks we have been learning about Toy Story. Well did you know that remembered things that I played with t when I was little I had always played with my  little pony. I had many toys that I had enjoyed playing  like a teddy bear a little car and hello kitty. I miss these toys because right now if I was little and I was bored I would get my toys and play with them. But since now that my little brother has grown he had broken them all.

My Newspaper Article

          Write a one-paragraph newspaper article about a squishy badger who gets locked in the classroom overnight.

This was quiet weird there was a squishy badger who was locked  in our classroom over night. Very very weird. Thinking in my head why would he stay there. He maybe didn't have any where to go so he would just lock him self in our class and sleep. This made me think of something wrong.

50 wrod story about Film Festival ( Be Happy)

Here is the movie that really inspired. And also here is their link to their BLOG.

Watching lots of movies we got to a movie that I thought entertained me with happiness. This movie was made by St Pius X children. They had the word happy all over  and they gave me a great message about being happy. Happy is the way that I feel now.

Getting ready into our togs we felt cold waiting outside of the pools. We had waited for a long time. I felt so excited. As many as children from our class came out of the toilets Miss King started to announced the rules in the pool.  

Finally we heard all the rules, and one of them was one by one on each set of stairs getting into the pool. Every Wednesday is so cool because of swimming.  We had so many Activities to do. One of our activities were to wear a life jacket and make a circle with everybody. In this activity we had to go around in the circle and float.

We had a great start to swimming with so many activities and lessons. At the end we had finished with great games and free time. Many of us had missed out on this because they hadn’t come with their togs.

Athletics 2012 Relay

Sadly Cross Country has past but now we have moved on to Athletics. Mostly the things that I don't like are Running and High Jump. But this year one of my goals were to never hate these two sports. Athletics is the most amazing event for our whole school. Shot put, Discus, Running, Softball through and Relay was the sports that I think I improved in.

It was time for Relay. Relay was our first activity to do. We would have to run back and then fourth I got so tired so fast. I couldn’t do this but I knew I had to do this for my team Mataatua (GREEN) Finally our teacher that took us around to our activities, told us the result for Relay and Mataatua in Relay came 3rd place. I knew this wouldn’t work but I know that we would always try very hard.

We had ended with so many activities. Mostly I had always come second but then someone would always beat me like in Shot Put. It was boring that we missed out on Javelin I really wanted to do it. But next time  I would be looking forward to Cross Country and Athletics as it is coming again in 2013. I am looking forward to trying to achieve even more harder goals in High Jump and Running and even more.

My Scary Story

Walking through the narrow alleyway, I saw a black board.  It was a black board on a snowy street filled with names.  There was a big space in the middle and I knew I needed to fill in my name as well, so then  I did. I wrote Alma.

Names were everywhere all over the blackboard, but I hadn’t seen these kids anywhere around the town for a long time. Looking behind me it felt like someone was watching me. But there was nobody, just a scary looking shop that looked like the head of a Shark.  It was no one, just a doll that looked exactly like me, I looked at my clothes then at the doll. It was me. I was very very very afraid. I  really liked this doll because it was  me but it scared me a lot too. Turning away from it for just a second, the doll suddenly disappeared!

Looking through the windows of the doll shop, I found it again, it was me up on a shelf. I tried to open the door but it didn’t. Picking up a snow ball I threw it at the door. Slowly I walked away, by then I heard a scratching noise from the door.  The door had opened. As I rushed back to the door I looked left then right for the doll, but there it was right in front of my face. Reaching for it I accidentally stood on a doll that rode a bike, it looked like he was trying to escape.

Happily getting onto a table I reached with my long hands and tried to get it. Touch. Touching the doll with my hands I felt so heavy I couldn’t even move either I only could look around. By then the next doll turned up on the shelf and it was my  friend Jordenne.

Future Computer

 This is a future computer that I made up. In Extension we made up our own creative computer. And this is mine.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Retell

As Charlie was walking home, he stopped and stared at something. It was a coin that was under a drain. Charlie bent down to pick it up. “Its unbelievable”  Charlie said with a smile.

Walking into the shops, he felt so hungry so he brought a chocolate bar. He asked the counter “Can a I have a chocolate bar please?” “Yes you may but what one do you want, scrumdidlyumptious” replied while showing him it. “Uhmm I think I will take the biggest chocolate bar” said Charlie.

Charlie was very very hungry. And bought the biggest bar in the shop. Ripping off the paper that covered the bar, he shoved it all into his mouth. “ Slow down you might get a sore stomach from eating it very fast” Said the owner of the shop with a weird face.  

As soon as he finished his bar of chocolate, he walked away and then turned back. He asked the counter again and said “Can I just have one more chocolate bar but a wonker one but for my Grandpa Joe.” “Sure” the owner of the shop replied with a smile on his face.

Taking ten steps out of the shop, Charlie watched a big crowd of people jostled to get the newspaper which said the fifth ticket was fake. Charlie took more steps over to some stairs where people sit and he was thinking it was his lucky chance. Carefully opening the packet he slowly unrapped the wrapper and saw the Golden Ticket, he couldn’t believe it so he shut  the wrapper again and open it back up........ So he looked at it carefully to see if it really was and it was.

Building Lego on Chrome

Lego is the most amazing toy to create with. Lego is for many children 1- 18 years old. Did you know that I am 10 years old and I still play with this toy. Here is a link to that site : LEGO

Jimmy The Bull Rider Show Off

“ Ohh my gosh he is  flying ” Jumping onto a bull, Jimmy the young bull rider showed off his great skills. He really was in the air. What a big show off he is. It looked like this was going to end very badly. I covered my eyes and waited till the end.   

I thought  this bull was going to jump in a bad way but luckily it didn’t. With its horns sticking out, I knew  one of them was going to hit Jimmy’s stomach. He maybe thought that he would break the world record. He  really needed to land near a bull without any damage happening It was a competition. But I knew that he was not going to make it.  

This was a happy ending for Jimmy because he landed on his feet. But as the Bull watched him stand up he chased him so many times over and over again. As Jimmy got to the safety, sadly the Bull hit his back and he broke his bone.

My Narrative Story About The Beach

Sela's Camp Movie from Team 4 Pes on Vimeo.              

It was a nice Sunny day at the beach, and we had camp for school. Our group started our activities with Kayaking and Swimming. Swimming was so cool because we got to stand on the rocks and jump off it. I was so scared of the water it was so Cold and Windy.

Clumsily putting my foot into the water, I felt like I didn’t want to swim. But filled with courage my friend Iron, yelled at me “ Come on Sela get in because it is boring without you in the water”  So I got in with some excitement. Watching everybody doing bombs, I started doing it as well. I felt very scared.

This was one of our activities and I had fun doing it. Mostly we enjoyed swimming because we got to do anything we wanted but knew not to go any further than Mr Burt has said.  Standing on top of the rocks I waited for my turn to jump. I had to watch out for rocks under the water.

Jumping of the rocks it felt dangerous. Looking down made me so scared because the water looked so deep. I needed braveness inside me, so I jumped and made a big splash “ BOOM!” Watching the water go on every body I had another go. It didn’t feel that dangerous anymore.

If there was no rocks underneath then there would be no problem jumping of the rocks. There goes a nice Sunny day with camp and Swimming activities. Playing around and getting on to our next activity.

This was the best and only camp that I had been to. Kayaking would have been fun but we kept on heading in the wrong direction. Sadly our boat flipped over and we both fell out.

Halloween Speech Paragraph

It was Halloween, and me and little brother went trick or treating. I was dressed as a clown and my brother was a Ninja. As we walked on through the neighbourhood we came back with a bucket full of lollies. Holding the bucket my little brother moaned and said “Give it back I got most of the lollies” As he yelled I angrily snatched the bucket and shouted at him “ But I was the one that took you out” Aggressively pulling it back and forth, Mum came out yelling “ SELA PASS ME THE BUCKET AND YOU TWO BOTH GO TO YOUR ROOMS” Then she went on eating them all herself.

Our Narrative Imagination of a flood

Hello my name is Daniel. Well I am 9 years old  and school is over. There has been a flood in Japan,  it is a Huge  flood. This water looked like a swimming pool, but it was cold.

Many children started to come out from their houses and play with me. Seeing my friends coming out to find me I felt so afraid because I had made a bet.  I was so scared that I might lose.

I had to jump because me and my friend had a bet .He told me if we do rock paper scissors, and if I lose then I  have to jump  into that water and do a BOMB as best as I could . Me and  my friend had this challenge because we were checking who can do the biggest BOMB and I  Daniel did not want to do a small bomb.

More kids  came out ready to watch me jump into the water. I did a HUGE BOMB and the water SPLASHED on my friends’ faces.

We loved this flood because we like to play in the  water. But there was a problem, the parents didn’t like this.  This was too hard that our things needed to be moved away from the water. Lucky I didn’t have to help, only my brothers and sisters did.

My Basketball Recount

Enjoying a great season of playing sport nearly every week, our classroom joined together to play the sport Basketball. Basketball felt so amazing to play. Dribbling and passing the ball over to my friend she quickly passed it to me. As I scored a goal my whole team yelled YEAH!!

These skills really helped us to learn how to play Basketball. Starting off our lessons with skills we played a game called tunnel ball. You first need either 5 or 6 people in your group well we had 5 and I was in the front. The first thing you need to do is put the ball over your head and then the person behind puts under her/him. First person to the front and moves up starts over again. Its a great game to play, Netball or Basketball trainings.

Basketball is my favorite sport that I have ever played, the most coolest thing that I love about Basketball is Shooting into the goal and Dribbling the ball. You should play this sport because you can run, shoot into the goal and also dribble the ball. Do you like Basketball? Well I do. Do you know why i like Basket ball the reason is because you get to shoot anywhere near the circle.

Next year I am looking forward to playing Basketball with our classroom. Are you into playing BASKETBALL? Thank you Ty and Brook from Auckland Basketball for having lessons at our schools with us.

Farewell Mrs Verry

Farewell to our dear Mrs Verry from Team 4 Pes on Vimeo.

Sitting in the hall waiting to start our Assembly we sang our National Anthem. During then our principal Mr Burt welcomed our kindest teacher Mrs Verry to our Assembly. Unfortunately she was leaving, thats why most of our teachers were dressed in so many jewelry.

As Mr Burt told us his story about Mrs Verry a movie showed up. This movie was a movie from a long long time ago when Mrs Verry was a teacher but now she is in child support. By now she is not going to be helping us she would be helping her family.

For almost being here at our school for over 20 years. One of our child support teachers were going to leave us. Mrs Verry was a great teacher without her help our school would be broken, but lucky we have more teachers in our community. Well celebrating a great few years with her we started our friday with sharing our love with her.

Feeling so sad that she was leaving culture groups from our school danced for her, the Samoan girls and our little junior Maori pounamu group. She has been an Super Gran to our school, and she is also known as the Queen of Bling. Mrs Verry was a kind and caring teacher, sometimes she growls my friends and sometimes me. But she is still one of my favorite teachers.

We are going to miss her lots from oldest to youngest we will still remember her.

Making Thai Fish Cakes In Extension

During the week we joined an competition it was not a mavoie making one it was a cooking one. Well our Extension group made Thai Fish Cakes. The Comp was called lets Cook. Making Thai Fish Cakes was as nice as anything else. Please click on the link and vote for us at Parmco.

My reflection: This task of making Thai Fish Cakes was so fun the most coolest thing that happened was to get together and putting it in the frie pan.

The most difficult thing that happened while cooking was trying to flip it over. The thing that made it difficult was when I tried to flip it over the oil would just pop up and burn my face.

My favourite part of our process was eating the Thai fish Cakes!!! Do you know why? Well I liked it because you could taste the curry and the fish. IT WAS SO TASTY!!

Do you think that I am going to make this for my family. You should try it because it tastes so GREAT!

Netball Prizegiving 2012

netball prizegiving 2012 from Team 4 Pes on Vimeo.

Finally finishing our Netball season with a prize giving, our year 5 team 1 team came first through out all of the whole section 1 year 5’s. Starting off  my morning with getting ready, I quickly got my shoes on and asked my mum to wake up saying " Wake up mum wake up I need to go to school for netball today" I said in a hurry. Quickly getting into the van I looked at the time and it was 8:15 that is the time we had to get there at school. Our prize giving was held at the AMI Netball Courts.

Seeing my friends Jordenne and Asena I noticed that I wasn't late. There came our sports teacher Miss Va'afusuaga. Walking out of the van I quickly said goodbye to my mum. " Hey Jordenne since when have you been here” As I asked Jordenne. She said since 8:00 clock.

Walking into school grounds we got ready to wear our Netball Uniforms. By then our Manager Miss Squires appeared at school, “ YAY” I said to myself. Getting changed into our uniforms more people from our team turned up to school.

We were ready to go. Getting into one of our teacher’s car we drove off to the Netball courts. There it was the prize giving all ready and done.  Walking onto the courts we sat down and listened to the host talking. Waiting to hear them call out the year 5 section 1 we got ready to get our prize. Our prize was a medal, it was so hard and cool.

I would be looking forward to the next prize giving next year!!!

Edditing and Re-crafting

Today we practised re crafting a piece of writing. The first paragraph belongs to Aldora and the second paragraph is mine.
Aldora’s Version
As we were getting near some more puddles, I realised that the track was dangerous. Jogging carefully down the slippery stairs I nearly slipped but luckily I held onto the tree. I was happily saved by the tree.

                                          My Version  
As I ran up towards the stairs, I reached some more muddy puddles. Looking down at my shoes they were all dirty and greasy. “ Wow this is a very scary and yucky race” I said to myself as I ran through the squishy grass.

Pretending to be Liu Xiang

Getting ready for the race I felt nervous. Winning is one of my goals that I need to achieve. Because in our country where the 2008 Olympics were held, I sadly fell down while running. By then I heard a man say “ Get your marks get set go” He yelled . Speeding in the start I got so tired.

Running on the track, heading for the first hurdle I fell down. “ OUUUUUCCCCC HHHHH” I cried.  What have I done, I have disappointed my country. Crashing to the ground my achilles tendons got sore each time I moved. This was so embarrassing I needed to get out of this place.

As I hopped out of the Stadium, embarrassingly, people started to stare. Hopping along the track, a bunch of people tried to help me. As I got near the end, I kissed the hurdle and two kind friends came to help me. One was from Great Britain and the other was from Spain. This was my time to retire.

Cross Country 2012 Year 5

Feeling so frustrated that Cross Country was here, my legs started to shake and I got nervous. Walking so fast to the Reserve I wished that this was already over. As Mr Somerville asked us to line up we got ready to run. “ On your marks get set GO!! Mr Burt yelled.

Starting with a jog through the Bush Walk I got tired so fast. By then I saw muddy patches, and we had run through them “ Why OH Why do we have to run”. I got so angry because my shoes were muddy as well, teachers these days.

“ AHHH” I yelled. Yelling so loud I nearly slipped through the mud. Running through the trees it felt like a forest that we were running through.While people passing by I felt embarrassed but lucky me I didn’t come last.

Passing by a teacher she cheered me on and said “ GO SELA YOU CAN DO IT!! By then I was nearly up to our teacher Miss King. Taking off my shoes lots of mud came out, “ Eww” I said in my head. As I got to Miss King I started to sprint.

Finally I was nearly there at the finish line. “ YAY” I yelled. Crossing the finish line many people cheered me and my friend Hannah.

Then finally I waited for the older kids to run past the finish line, so I can cheer them on.  I wish that Cross Country did not even exist.

The Olympics is over! As the London Olympics was over the whole world celebrated, with a Closing Ceremony. While many people were there at the stadium half of the country watched it LIVE on T.V.
