We had to answer some questions about safety swimming. Mr Harris gave each of us a sheet and we had to complete it. The people who didn't have swimming togs had to answer some questions about improvised (make something out of whatever is available) floatation.

What safety device do you wear when you are in a deep pool, or sea?
Wear a life jacket.

Why should you try to stay with a capsized boat?
So you can flip it over, get on it and sail to shore.

I feel like a water safety expert now.

Thanks to Hosannah for checking my work.


My favourite movie was The Test, by room 18, Pt England School. The main characters are Dillon, Starford, Rihan, Kingston, Brook and Jephte. My other favourite movie was by, Jordenne a.k.a Jojo, Sela and Iron, they were also in the movie. The movie is called More.

At the Manaiakalani film festival last night I watched, Pt England, Glen Brae, Glen Innes, Tamaki College, Tamaki Intermediate and other schools.

We had to get out of the film festival, because there was a college video that was inappropriate for us kids.

It was 7:59 pm, a little girl went up stairs to look for her mother, she was scared because of the lightning. All she wanted to do was pray for the lightning to go away. She was cuddling her teddy bear, to keep her safe.
It was 8:00 pm, and the girl was still frightened, she was still upstairs as well looking for her mother. The lightning was still striking, but then she prayed, and the lightning . The lightning finally stopped, after an hour, and she found her mother they were happy.
The moon started to shine out, and then they went to celebrate. After that, they went for a good night sleep.

The thing that causes the volcano to erupt, is because the plates move. When they collide and slide one is pushed down while another pushes on top. There are various types of volcanoes and they can be found all over the Earth's surface, as well as underneath the ocean.
Mt Tongariro is located in New Zealand. It is located 20 kilometres (12 mi) to the South west of Lake Taupo, and is the northernmost of the three active volcanoes that dominate the landscape of the central North Island.

We fell in a Milo packet, a big one. Then we fell back down and we landed back in the car, where the roller coaster was.

I went on a dangerous adventure with the dinosaurs. I’m Zion and i’m going to tell you about it.

Last year, in 2011, I was working on a project with my teacher, Mr Somerville. Our task was to build a time machine. The machine was built from metal rulers and plastic crates. We had a remote control, this was and old calculator!  I wanted to go back to dinosaur times so I included a dinosaur mask as part of my kit in the machine.

It turned into a real time machine by, buying some weird materials that could fit into my weird time machine. I was riding my bike there, then I went back to class with my bike, as fast as I can. I needed my bike to start up the engine for me and Mr Somerville's time machine. I couldn't wait for the time machine to get ready!!!!!

I was back to the past and I went by myself. I was hiding and I also put my dinosaur mask on, and I roared to them and they roared back. Then suddenly a strange thing happened........ The dinosaurs could talk because they drank a witches drink.

Then a dinosaur roared and yelled, " HELP, HELP!!!! " That dinosaur roared because her eggs were gone. The mother could see the eggs on top of the tallest volcano, that will explode at night on the 12 of . The eggs mother cried, " How do we get to the tallest volcano without getting hurt!! " Then I said, " Well we pack our stuff and go to a DANGEROUS ADVENTURE!!!!!! "

I was ready to go on my dangerous adventure!!!!!!!!!!

The eggs mother had the first aid kit. The father had the food because we might be hungry, we had dino food and human food. The dinosaurs worked as a team the whole way through. I brought the drinks, soft drinks. The rest got what they wanted to get.

It was the next day the day we had to go to the volcano it was almost noon. Then it was evening we rushed there, a dinosaur fell and sprang it's ankle, and the eggs mother got the first aid kit and put something around it and it was all good.

There was a deep part in the water, but we had to be careful. There were booby traps. There was a quick sand in the middle of the muddy path. After that we went near the snakes they were big we had to freeze before they look at us the we run.

It was time for the volcano to explode and the mother ran as fast as she could and got the eggs and we all went to celebrate.

Smoking isn’t good for you. Did you know smokers are at a higher risk of getting cancer than non-smokers?

DANGERS: Smoking is mostly the reason why people have cancer. If you start smoking when your a teenager, and become an adult, you will get addicted to it.

LIKELIHOOD: One of the chances of getting diseases is smoking. Smoking diseases are dangerous, you might die from it, and most likely get cancer.

I HAVE SHOWN: That if you don’t quit smoking now you will end up chopping your toes and fingers and feet. If you keep smoking, after that go and brush your teeth, because it will smell. I don’t like it if people smoke around me, or smoke around younger children.

On the 21st of August 2012, John Key announced to the people who were watching on the TV that 3 soldiers from New Zealand passed away. The New Zealand soldiers are going to stay there until 2013 in Afghanistan. The Improvised Explosive Device, A.K.A  I.E.D killed them.
On the 4th of August 2012 they passed in Afghanistan.
An I.E.D is a roadside bomb, also it can be almost anything with any type of material, and it is also home-made.

When we ran the cross country race, we had to listen to Mr Burt, for instructions. Some people were about to slip, in the cross country race, some people were keeping their balance.
The colors are Te Arawa (Red), Tainui (Blue), Matatua (Green) and Takitimu (Yellow).
It was challenging for me, because we had to run where the Pt England Reserve was. We started at the field in Pt England.
After that I saw Mrs Squires, she told me to keep going. I didn’t stop, I kept going at till I get to the finish line, then I saw Tauwhare, she told me to keep going.
Then I made it to the finish line. It was actually not so bad after all.

Thank you Dakota for checking my work.

My Uncle Usain Bolt came 1st in the London Olympic Games and his teammate Yohan Blake came 2nd in sprinting. Usain Bolt is so fast, I can’t even catch him. He has won a lot of medals in sprinting.

Usain Bolt is fantastic at running, even if he just gets a silver medal he’s still the fastest to me. He can run as fast as a cheetah. He can run like he’s never ran before.

What makes a superior athlete? Well I think hard work and training makes a good athlete. An athlete has determination, pushes themselves to the limit and believes in themselves. What do you think?

Practice makes perfect, if you think about Jesse Owens and Usain Bolt, they are really fast runners because they train everyday. If you want to be like an athlete, you train everyday, and have a good education.

My opinion is that both natural ability and hard work are important to an athlete.

Thanks Athena and Dakota for checking my work.

In our class we've been reading an article about USA banning swearing in public. Residents in a small town outside Boston, USA, have voted to fine people for swearing in public. At a town meeting, the residents voted to approve that people who swear gets a $20 fine (US money.)

Why do people swear? People swear because when they get angry. People swear because they think they are cool. People who swear are out of there mind. People also swear of getting stressed by trying to quit smoking.

People who swear are those who can't control their anger. Another reason why people who don't control their anger are people who don't take care of themselves. Angry people never stop swearing. Swearing is bad for you because you might swear at the wrong person.

Slang: Slang is another name for a country.
Profanity: Profanity is swearing. Profanity is an insult to our one and only spiritual father God, so please do not swear at church.

Swearing is very rude. Swearing is bad for you. When is the right time to swear ? Never in your life, because it might set an example from your parents. If you want to swear say a word that sounds like it, for example fudge and ship.

Thank-you Hosannah for checking my work.

This is my painting, but I need to finish it off by, shading some parts. The color I use the most is black and grey. It takes time to make the right color. You have to practice, and practice, until you get it right. If I learn and learn about painting, I might get the hang of it.

Coffee wakes me up a lot. It makes me wanna drink it for my whole life. Everyone should try coffee because it wakes you up in the morning. Coffee is the best drink. Coffee is really hot and sweet. It gives me energy to run at school. Hot drinks are really tasty with sugar, and it helps if you put boiling water in It. But little kids can’t drink It.

Coffee makes me want to jump up into the sky. Everyone likes coffee, but not everyone. Tea is nice, tasty, but it’s not my favorite. People say tea is good for your breakfast, if you want a nice hot drink. Hot drinks are good for cold days. Tea is really nice sometimes, but my favorite, is coffee. Coffee is also the best drink.

Oh, forget about all this. I LOVE HOT CHOCOLATE!!!!!!!!!!

The Treaty of Waitagi was signed, between Maori and Europeans in February 6th 1840. Before the treaty was signed, Maori were fighting in a war against Europeans. Maori traded food for muskets, because the muskets are very powerful to kill European people. Captain James Cook was the first European to sail to New Zealand. France was trying to take over New Zealand. William Hobson (the Governor of Queen Victoria) signed the Treaty for Queen Victoria. When the Maori tribe had all the muskets they attacked the Europeans, but then a treaty came and the Maori tribe signed it and the Europeans.
