Swimming Experience

Once I stepped in the pool I was freezing cold. I had goose bumps. I was shivering to death. We were running around and I was getting used to the water. We started with a game called “Captains Coming”. It was awesome and cool. My highlight was having free time and playing tag in the water. I want to know how to torpedo in the water.

I learnt an experiment called sinking and floating. Floating is staying above. Sinking is going below. It was a really good experiment. It was amazing what floats and what sinks. Objects that float is lighter than the water. Object that sinks is heavier than the water.

The Netbook Is a Great Tool

The netbook is a great learning tool Because,

* It is quicker than handwriting and you don’t need to sharpen your pencil. My example is if you learn how to “touch-type”, you can see it is much faster.
* It Is easier to learn faster and not just Looking at the white board being bored. My example is if I didn't listen I Would have a second Chance.
* We Can use Internet like a library but different . We don’t need to share computers . We can just use a netbook of our own.

Netbook is a great tool It helps you a lot with your learning. It is better than a pen
and a pencil. No more getting bored and just staring at the board all the time. The teacher can just send what you have to do. That's why the netbook is a great tool.

Thank you for being a good citizen by going away from your family and fighting for you country.
Thank you for your bravery by going over seas. We all hope you come home safely.
Life has been hard and sad here, but when you come home we will be glad to see you again.
To make life more comfortable for you and your troop I have boxed up and sent with this letter a batch of ANZAC biscuits for you to share. I hope they make you feel a bit closer to home.

God bless you and see you soon.

From a caring citizen of New Zealand.

maths reflection

What I learnt in maths was how to do measure objects using mm,cm,m and km. I know that because If I need to measure a pencil I need to use mm to measure it. I also know that

I am a model

I am a special character and have a special talent to play some instrument.
I wonder if Zombies are real.
I hear the angels sing.
I see Jesus ascending to heaven.
I want to be a really good netball player.
I am a special character and have a special talent to play some instrument.

I pretend I am in heaven.
I feel a soft cloud.
I touch Jesus hand.
I worry about things happening to my family.
I cry i am in a sad mood.
I am a special character and have a special talent to play some instrument.

I understand about Jesus.
I say I believe in Jesus.
I dream of being a doctor when I grow up.
I try to do my best and get a good a education.
I hope I have a Good year in room 7
I am a special character and have a special talent to play some instrument.

!!!!!!earthquake poem!!!!!!!!!!

Earthquakes are so horrible,
It makes your house look terrible,
I will shake as well and I’ll hate it if i get hurt,
I don’t want my arm to squirt out,
So be in a safe place,
So protect your sensitive face,
This will be the worse thing you can imagine,
so be in a place that you will be fine in.

WOW!! Our netbooks .

'Oh so exciting'. On Monday the 7th of March was now a significant date in our schools history. The senior syndicate was going to receive individual netbooks so no longer would we have wait for a desktop computer to be free YAY!.

First thing straight after morning tea we had a shorter time for S.S.R. Mr Coakley came and told us important stuff. Somethings like safety, security and the money.
Next Miss G, Miss Ana and Mrs Burt brought in brand netbooks. It was thrilling. We got our little netbooks to use for our education. So we opened the box and saw our netbooks. Opp! yes we all had to sign a contract which started we would use the netbooks for education purposes first, especially during class time.

Before we went on we started with a countdown from ten to one and then we turned on it with our turny on finger . Boom the screen came up with the Maniakalani logo.We typed and played games for half an hour and we were worried that Miss G was go take it away from us when she said “okay lets do some shutting down” and we were all like “oh no” what has happen but then appeared a box . We had to fill it in once before we finished we playing our games on it and had a little video clip with the web-cam. Sadly it had to go !!!!!!boooohooooooo!!!!!!! how sad.

So there it goes but we get it back on Wednesday !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

!!!The Atheltics Run Off!!!

‘Oh yea!’ I am so thrilled , about the day as we are going to the athletics track as we had been preparing for weeks. Straight after morning tea St Pius , yes the whole school was going to have a run off. We are going to have a day off with no work oh yea!
My team was “GECKOS” the team that always win. Would they succeed again?

I was really excited about the day with all the cheering and chants as the flags and banners were waved about as we marched from the front of the school to the track. I was running in the 10 yr old events. Mrs Pole called for the first competitors to stepped and go to the starting post. The 5 yrs old run try so hard and there was the danger they not stay in their lanes. Me,Fetuli and Jorina was cheering on our team . We were having a great time. Kiwi’s were next to us and they were cheering for their team. I not sure who was more excited the cheer team or the winner of each race.

Finally, the waiting was over and it was the 10 yr olds turn . Yes! my time to shine under the sun. So we walked to the starting line. Most of the events had heats but we were running all- together, no finals.Well actually we were running the finals. Only one chance to shine for the Gecko’s. The twelve year olds were the last to sprint and then there was an open 800 meter race for boys and girls , and the winner was? Well they weren’t from Gecko’s. After that it was lunch time.

The straight after lunch, the junior syndicate were competition in novelty races. The Senior syndicate was busy with relays . The house team were matched against each other Tuis vs Kiwi’s and Keas vs Gecko’s. Tuis won and Keas won and so Tuis was vs keas and then all of, a sudden, Tuis won the relay’s. Congratulation's to the Tuis. To finish of the day the chant competition came up. We all did well .

The scoreboard was turned away from us so us Gecko’s were not 100% certain we had won again. Mr Coakley took hold of the microphone and called out the final result.So who had accumulated enough points to topple us off the winning platform. The 4th placed team was Keas, Kiwis were 3rd Tuis were 2nd and the last of all the one and only !!!!!!! GECKOS!!!!!!! Wooooohoooo!!!!!. that was the greatest day ever,!!!!! we won!!!!!.
