My Favourite Part Of The Year

Some of Room 4 have said what they liked about this year and this is what they said:

Our Class Mass

Our Class Mass In the morning Room 3 and 4 went to the church I saw my mum and dad. I said to my mum and dad "Hi." I payed "Bless children who have no friends and help us to be real friends to each other. Lord hear us." We sang a song. The priest asked questions about facebook. I guessed that it was hard but I had a go. My favourite part is eating the bread and drinking the wine. After mass my mum and dad left. By Anthony

Our Class Mass

Our Class Mass My favourite part was when I was doing the offertory. My part was holding the candle. It smelt like I was on fire. It was funny when Father said "Do you have facebook?" My favourite part eating the bread and drinking the wine. I liked the song with the actions. I saw my mum and my baby. My mum said "I am so proud of you Marcus." By Marcus

Our Class Mass

Our Class Mass My favourite part of mass was reading with my soul friend. I felt very excited and a little bit nervous. My highlight was that my mum came and was singing. What I hated was standing up in the front because my feet hurt. What was funny was Father asked if we had facebook. Father asked what do the disciples eat? Father was asking a lot of questions. By Kalisi

Our Class Mass

Our Class Mass On Friday morning we went to the church and when we got there we saw our mums and dads at the church. We sat down and after that we sang a song called Isn't. He and the people stopped singing now. The readers came to the front and did their psalm. My favourite part was Father talking. By Von

Our Class Mass

Our Class Mass On a foggy, cold and exciting day Room 3 and 4 has a soul friend mass. It was exciting because there were heaps of parents coming to support their daughters. When the mass had started I was feeling confident because heaps of people were at the mass. When we were singing I felt like I was singing by myself. When my soul friend went up and talked I was proud of her because she's my soul friend. My favourite thing in mass was when we were singing and doing the actions because when I sing I always think about the poor people and God and Jesus. The last part of mass is bowing down and looking at Jesus. My other favourite part was when i listened to the readers. They sounded wonderful. I felt like I want to have another soul friend mass again because it is special to me and my family. The last bit I want to say is I love talking about mass because I always pray at home with my whole family. I've got heaps of lovely family. By Henrietta

Our Class Mass

Our Class Mass On a hot morning Room 3 and 4 were excited because we were going to have a friendship mass. When the bell rang Mrs Pole said "Come on we are going to mass." When we came out we lined up with our soul friend and then we walked to the church. When we went inside we couldn't sit together. When it was time for the people to read I liked listening to them. When Father asked if we have facebook i started laughing. When it was time for the offering i liked listening to the soft music. After communion some of Room 3 and 4 held up a Jesus sign. I was nervous. My favourite part of the mass was when we sang and doing the actions. By Stanley

K.I.T Day

K.I.T Day On Tuesday I went with Mrs Phillips, Maxwel-Dee and Vaiora to a picnic in the park. We did lots of things like playing on the playground, going for a bush walk and races. But the best thing was cooking s'mores biscuits! To make s'mores we needed a knife, a stove, biscuits, marshmellows, chocolate spread and skewers. First of all we put chocolate spread on two biscuits. Then we put a marshmallow on a skewer and toasted it over the stove. To finish, we put the marshmallow between the two biscuits and squashed them together and ate it. It was yummy! The K.I.T day was fun! By Alex

A Sad Time

A Sad Time A sad time for me was when my 3 pets died. My dog died by gEtting sick.My guinea pig had a knife sitting next to it .My fish died because it did not swim up and get some breakfast. I felt sad when I knew my dog, fish and guineapig died. To help me calm down I had a drink and splashed some water on my face.My mum and dad gave me a hug and my family had a funeral.So my grandad bought a new fish then I was so HAPPY!

A Sad Time

A sad time for me was when my cat died. A dog bite him. I felt sad that he died. My Mum bought me a new cat. I fed my cat. I played with my cat. I did everything with my cat.

The Children whose Mum was up in the sky - A re-telling

Children whose Mum was up in the Sky

Many years ago on a dark moonlit night the children were thirsty and asked "E Rona can you get some water?" Rona said "Yes" and she got the taha and went to the path. The path was bumpy. Rona couldn't see anything. Rona said "Marama! Marama! Get out of that cloud!" Marama didn't care. Rona got very, very angry and said, "Look what you have done. Silly old moon." Marama got angry and tried to pull Rona. Rona held the ngaio tree but Marama the moon pulled as hard as he could. Marama pulled Rona and suddenly Rona and the taha and the ngaio tree went high in the sky. Rona was scared and sad. Rona said to the moon, "Marama! Marama! My children are calling for water." The children were waiting and waiting. Suddenly the children heard something and it was their mum. The mum said, "I'm up with Marama."

The message was do not be mean to each other.

Shining Moon - A re-telling

Shining Moon

A long, long time ago the moon light shone brightly in the sky. The the children were thirsty. They called out "E Rona! Bring us some water." Rona took a taha and set off to the water spring. The way to the water spring was bumpy and Marama hid behind a dark black cloud. "Come out from behind that cloud." Rona shouted at the moon. Rona was walking and she tripped over a ngaio tree. Rona shouted "See! What! You! Have! Done!" Marama said "Don't you talk to me like that!" Rona said "I can say what I want to say." Then Marama swooped down and grabbed Rona but Rona held onto the ngaio tree and then Marama pulled harder. "Please" Rona begged. "My children are calling me." Marama pulled so hard that the ngaio tree came right out of the dirt. Then Marama held onto Rona. The children came out looking for their mum. "I'm up here with Marama."

The message for this story is watch what comes out o…

THE PUMPHOUSE

On Monday I went with Mrs Phillips and Izac from Pt. England School to the Pumphouse Theatre in Takapuna to see the HAIRY MACLARY SHOW. It was a good show and I liked it when Slinky Malinki was stealing   things in the night. It was very funny when Scarface Claw got stuck up in a tree and all the people shouted and pointed at the tree.

After the show we ate our lunch and then went to Takapuna Library and read some Hairy MacMaclary Books. When we left there we went to Takapuna Beach and saw a volcano called Rangitoto. On the way back to school we had a Happy Meal at McDonald's and played on  a playground  in a park.

I enjoyed the day and liked meeting my new friend Izac because he wears hearing aids like me.

On Thursday night we had a musical evening. I was excited and I was happy because my mum had put money in my shirt. I was wearing jeans, a shirt and a hat. My mum was cheering for me. I was in a group who was playing the bass. I was moving my arm out and in. I took my hat off my head. My mum said "Where is your $5?" It was in my pocket. My favourite part was Noisy Boys. I like Rolland because he was playing the bass. So first we were cheering for Rolland. Big Beat Box Boogie was a cool song. I like Big Beat Box Boogie, that is my favourite song.

I was in the horn stabs. My mum was cheering for me. I saw my whole family and my Aunty. My dad was holding my baby brother. I like the Noisy Boy because I liked the way it was playing loud. I like Saveu's singing because she has got a beautiful voice. Most of all I liked the Noisy Boys. My favourite part was when i was dancing and singing to share our talents with our family and cousins. I moved my arms up and down, side to side. Everyone was clapping for Room 4. My Aunty was proud of me and my sister. June was nervous when she was singing in the microphone. I liked Room 6's band. We went back home. My mum gave me something. I liked the sausage sizzle.

Good Cross Counrty

Good Cross Country

On a hot Friday afternoon i was walking with my line to the red gate and waited for someone to say go. Miss G said "Get ready, get set, go!" When I ran past June she said, "I'm exhausted." When I ran past my mum I heard, "Come on, come on, my man!" to June. Then I stopped and went to my mum to get her pump because I couldn't breathe and I cried. I stayed with my mum for a little rest from running a long way. When I stayed with my mum, Jane said, "Josie I can't" and I cried. I went back to my line and watched the seniors have their cross country. Their cross country was around the streets and in the courts. My highlight is how I am happy that the cross country is over.

On a hot Friday afternoon 8 year olds went to the start line. Mrs G said, "On your marks, get set, go!" Then I ran as fast as I could. I went past Paul. "Come on Paul ," I said. When I saw students in the courts I was nervous because I was coming fifth. I heard them cheer for me. When I passed Mrs Pole she said, "Run Stanley!"
I ran around the Church then I went through the courts. I ran almost passed Fanoali'i but I'd fallen over. Mrs Bell picked me up and took me to the sick bay. Next she put on a plaster. Mrs Bell said ,"Do you want to stay here for a while?"  "I do," I said. I was sad because I couldn't finish the race.

A Hockey Woman

I see a big, strong hockey woman wearing a short, white dress and wearing long, white socks. Also she wears pink and white shoes. I think that the hockey woman is proud of herself because she might be the winner of the team. I see the hockey woman's blonde hair and it is in a pony tail. I see the woman wearing a mouth guard and i also see the woman's strong, big muscles. I smell the people's breath and hear the people cheering for her. I see the woman holding a hockey stick and putting it up in the air, holding it high. I think that the woman is also proud and strong because she is amazing. I feel the woman's soft long hair and see her necklace. It is very pretty. I am thinking that I am looking at a winner and a champion.

I see a pretty girl with a pink and blue hockey stick in her soft warm hands. I smell the yummy food and the pretty flowers. I can hear the specially loud crowd cheering for the special girl. She feels the light warm clothes that she is wearing. I am thinking that she is proud of herself and when she goes home she is going to celebrate with her parents, friends and family. In the background i can see two men hiding a medal. I think the coach is proud of her.

I see a boy sad and looking disappointed. I smell green grass and some mud. I hear clapping for other people. I think he he is praying. I feel like crying because it looks like he is crying. A big strong man has got muscles. I see stretchy blue shorts. I see people sitting on the stand. I see flags of countries on the top of the stadium. The boy has got a white t-shirt. He has got blue and yellow shoes. I like his hair because it is shaved. I like people who shave their hair. The athlete looks like he is praying or disappointed. The athlete looks like he is lost. On the t-shirt I see a big number. I can see the background and foreground.

An athlete is all by himself in the foreground. Maybe he's crying because he's lost. Maybe he is praying to God. The people at the back of him are looking at him. I smell the green grass. I hear the grass blowing. I am thinking i want to cheer him up. That man's hair is black. The man has stretchy blue pants. He is disappointed. The people are cheering happily.

I see an athlete's finger glowing. It is dark in the stadium. I smell their smelly sweat, food and drinks in the big stadium. I feel Jesus giving the strong man strength. I hear people and family cheering, but not for him. I see a man wearing tight stretchy blue short pants. I smell their clean clothes. I hear the wind blowing the flag of a country, like Tonga. If there was Tonga I would be screaming but Tonga wasn't there. So I was cheering for Usain Bolt. Usain Bolt is the fastest man in the whole wide world. I feel sad because when you lose it is sad but when you win you feel happy.

I think people are cheering about the man who has won the race. He is kneeling on the soft, green grass and crying and happiness. I can smell that the man is sweaty after running so fast and the sun makes his wet skin shine. The noise of the people gets louder and louder because they want to see him get his gold medal.
I think he may be praying and saying thank you to God for helping him run fast. Perhaps one day I will win a race and get a gold medal too.

A Fun Time In The Holidays

On a warm Sunday morning me and my two brothers and my two Big! Big! bulldogs came to the school field. Whenever I ran, my two dogs were chasing me around the school. The school I was at was Saint Pius X School. I and my brothers had fun. I was happy because I don't like school. My two bulldogs had too much fun chasing. I got so puffed out that I had to stop running. After that they caught me and licked my face. My other dog came and bit me. We got hungry so walked and walked then finally we saw a shop. I had a nice pie. They had chips. My bulldog had bacon. YUM! I said to my self. We were thirsty so we bought a drink. Ooooooe, fresh drink! We felt tired because I keep running around the school with my dog and my brothers were tired because they had been running around the field. By Motu

A Fun Time In the Holidays

First of all I had a good sleep and then me and my famil went to the Waiwera Pools. We met two swimmers and their names were Sam and AJ. They told us how to swim and they told us how to swim on your back. I said I have already done that with Mr Burton. But they said you have to try again, little boy. So I tried again and again. I was happy ever after. Then we went to the playground with heaps of water. I was the first one to get the hose and I sprayed heaps of water out of the hose. After this we went and got some candy floss at the shops and then we went home and had a good sleep.

The Big Porridge

On a foggy Monday Room 4 was making porridge. First we poured 8 cups of water. After that we put oatmeal in the pot and 12 children had turns sprinkling the oatmeal in the pot. When everyone had turns we stirred the oatmeal with wooden spoon. Next we waited for the bubbles to come. The Mrs Pole got the ladle and put the hot porridge into the bowls. After this Ms Mat put the brown sugar on our bowl and Ms Mat said "who wants milk?" After we ate the porridge. Last of all Stanley had 3 bowls of porridge. The porridge was delicious and yummy.

The Big Pot of Porridge

First of all on a cold Monday morning, Room 4 had porridge in the morning because that's what they ate in the olden days. Mrs Pole brought an element and milk and oatmeal. Mrs Pole said to Eusepio "can you get 3 cups of water?" Next we had a turn to stir. Marcus was the first one to stir. He had a very long time. While he was stirring we sat on a cushion. When it was nearly ready Mrs Pole said come and see it bubbling. Marcus stirred with a wooden spoon. Pio gave the 3 cups of water to Mrs Pole so she could tip it into the pot. I felt excited. The porridge made my tummy hot. I put brown sugar in my porridge, that made my porridge yummy. Last of all, we gave our plate to Mrs Mat so she could wash it.

I wrote with my left hand and Mrs Good said write with your right hand NOW!  I said I write with my left hand and she said I do not care !  Then I was  scared.  I tried my best.
