Mrs Wright

Dear Mrs Wright,

My name is Kilistina and I am from Room three.

Thank you for bringing books to Saint Pius X students.
We enjoy them and we wish you the best Christmas. We love your books and you are a wonderful lady.

My favourite book that you have gave me was ‘Clifford Saves the Day’ because he runs to save the grandma’s house from the beach and the police comes.

Have a nice Holiday and thank you again.

Yours sincerely,
Room 3 Saint Pius X school

Netbook Reflection

At the start of the year I was excited because we got our netbook. I was so scared that I would break it because it was the old version and the rest the class had new ones. I couldn't wait because my nerves were jumping up and down.

Now I have improved as I can type faster. It is a learning tool because it is a machine. It is helpful because when you use paper and pencil you have to keep standing and sharpening your pencil. This year my typing is well gone high into the 40’s words per minute.

My favourite thing about using netbook is that your hands don’t get hurt as much as writing with a pencil. It is an easy way to publish to your blog instead of typing it from your book. We are starting to become more independent with using our netbook too.

I don’t like that my netbook can be distracting to me and the class sometimes, but we are trying to be more focussed on our work instead to other things.

The thing that I am looking forward to next year is that I get a high score in my typing tests and a good level across all my subjects.

Lego Story

This is a story about Lego and it is set in the olden days, because the cars and the olden houses and wires. . It happened in Switzerland and the character was Oil the grandfather and the son Godfrey. They began in 1932 and still carried on now. 

Oil lost his wife and he started to make toys with wood. He had four boys and they helped him but the little one helped him a lot. The name Lego came from Oli, it means play well.

Oli worked in the workshop and sold toys. He was making toys until he gave to the shops and he bought some food and the children were happy. Oli passed away and his son looked after the shop. His lego was sold in the shops and it is very fun to do.

My favorite part was that the son helped him alot and it was easy to watch. It was quite a sad movie because the toy shop got burnt down at one point. I loved the movie that my teacher showed me because I love lego and it is my favorite thing to do when I am bored.

Cricket Recount

Saint Pius student played cricket from week 1 to 4 in term 4. We played at the field and in the courts. We had our turn every Tuesday, we all had turns whacking the ball and fielding.

When we were finished our cricket lesson we would walk sensibly to the classroom. When we whacked the ball we had to run to the cricket bowler and touch it until there was 6 balls there on the yellow stander. What we did first was we had to go and line up at the court and we sit down and we listen carefully and we did warm ups with the ball.

First what we did was run with the ball around our legs. After we come and sit down after we bat, then if all the team got 3 out they had to swap. On my team we got the good players because they were fast and good catchers. We whacked the ball and it went very far. The coach came for 4 weeks and it was a pleasure to have him here.

We were the winners but there was no trophy but we still won. When we had the game at the field, it was not that fun because people were not respecting each others teams. So what we did was we fixed the problem by respecting each others teams by cheering for each other.

We loved cricket very much and this time. Sid is a very nice coach, we liked him and we wish him a very good time where-ever he has gone to next.

Film Festival

On Wednesday 14th of November the Manaiakalanai Film Festival occurred. We got on the bus at 10:00am.

There was a massive screen on the wall and it was a big white board. We got off the bus and walked inside the theatre.There was car parking to go through to get to the movies. Mr Coakley our principal greeted us to the Film Festival. There were 5 schools showing their films in our session. Each school showed their own movies. Saint Pius was lucky because we got to sit at the back of the theatre in the comfortable chairs. I liked it when my friends Rachel and Sonya got up and presented our movie. We were proud of ourselves to be on the big screen.

My favourite movie was the Azonto from Tamaki College because there was a wedding going on and I saw them dance at the back. I loved the night season because I bought stuff from Pak N Save to eat, we weren’t allowed to eat during the day session.

To show sportsmanship you should play fair and never cheat. We can show sportsmanship by kind and never hurt any one. To make sport better you should be friendly and never get angry at a person.  To be a good sportsman you have to be helpful and never break the rules. You should give a person on your team a go at batting or running and just have fun with your team mates.

Duffy and the best book every

Friday is my best day ever, because the Duffy Theatre come to our school. We sat down for a long and enjoyable show. 

It was friday and everybody was excited because theatre people came to tell us that reading is important. The whole school went to watch the show and we laughed heaps. What they did first was introduce themselves. We sang the duffy song and they told us a story about space and sailing tips. I loved it how scruffy always wanted duffy to play with duffy?. I loved how scruffy danced.

I loved it and it was very excited for me and it told us that reading makes you clever. I enjoyed the show and well done to those who got books.

Food Brainstorm

My Weird Neighbours

There was something happening at my next neighbor's house because there was a spaceship. There were aliens sitting and having beer with their friends.

When all of a sudden aliens came and knocked on the door and invited us to the party. When they were drinking that night there was a problem it was that they left their friend behind and the aliens were crying. There was this big humongous giant Alien came and got them and said, “ Hi”. When the spaceship came and the aliens were excited when it was their friend and he laughed. When he got there they had a party and disco when I peeked in the window I was scared of the window because there were alien ears sticking out but lucky they had a nice party but they almost..... got caught. Then the alien said “ahhh” guys look over there, there is some party up in space and they went.

They got caught and they traveled backed back to home at space and had a party. I was so happy that they went and then lucky I got back to bed and had a nice sleep.

Kids for Kids Concert

One morning, Room 3 went to the Telstra Clear Stadium at Manukau at  8:00 o'clock in the morning. This was on Monday, 17th of September. It was not that hot there, when we went in the morning, because I think that all the lights there were not on, but in the night time it was suppose to me hot .  All the class was there at the rehearsal. We did this to show the parents that we had talents and to represent our school. We also did the concert to raise money for World Vision. I was not able to go there at night because I had no ride and my parents were busy.

As soon as the bus came we went to the bus and found a seat to sit on. The bus was going to go but all of a sudden all the class started arriving to school and Miss G told them to bring their lunch to put it in the  big red box and the box was so full that we could not hold it. When the bus headed off we felt excited, happy, shy and we knew it was going to be fun there.

When we got there to the rehearsal we met Suzanne Prentice and she had a nice coat that looked really green.  The rehearsal was in the morning and the real performance was at night and the people who went would not get home until around 10 o’clock at night.

When we started eating our morning tea we watched Justin Bieber singing ‘Baby’ and this girl that worked there showed us about the World Vision when the kids eat and drink. The people who went on the night could not see their parents because there was a lot of people there and I think it was so full that the parent could not fit. There was heaps of children there. There were lots of people that wanted to go toilet but luckily it was our last song and they  we had a good morning there.

At the evening performance there were people doing solo’s which means they sing their own part with Suzanne Prentice. My parents told me it cost them $22 dollars to go in. I think the night was so full like last years with heaps of parent sitting there.

It sounded like crunchy bread that is burnt burn. The apple was so sweet that I could not eat it but it was my favourite. The apple was fresh and nice and so beautiful. It was heavy like a medium rock and it was soft on the inside, it was smooth on the outside. The apple tastes juicy and delicious.

X Country

St Pius X Catholic School had cross country on Friday the 24th August. The students were racing and the teachers were standing on the course to make sure the kids were safe and the parents were cheering for their children.

What we did first was we had to sit in our ages at the courts. We raced in two groups per age, the boys and girls. The little children had to run around the hall and around the church and go around the court and sit at their ages to finish.

When all the little kids were finished it was the seniors turn. When we had to run around the Whole course which was on the roads and you see a teacher there. After we ran Mr Coakley ran and he had a rope, if he tells you to hold it you hold it and keep up with him so that everyone would finish.

Each teacher had a flag and they were all standing on the road because some roads we had to cross and some we did not. We ran and we had a hill but if you sped down the hill you would get tired on your way so I didn’t race it, I just jogged.

When I finished coming back from the running I was thirsty. If you came in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th you had to get your name recorded by Mrs Williams as you might get a certificate.

I felt happy on friday because I was proud of me because even though I never came 1st I was still proud.

Olympic Torch Description

The Olympic flame is always lit when the Olympics is on.

The flame is pretty because it is heavy, hot and bright and has lots of lovely petals. It is made out of metal (Copper) and sound like humming noises and like the wind.

The torch is seen at the Olympic Stadium and on the television. When the flame is lit it starts and when the torch is off it means it is finished.

The Olympic Torch is special to bring the counties together like a team. To make the Torch extra special each country gets to take home one of the petals of the torch at the end of the Olympics.

I think we are lucky that every country knows that the Olympic starts when the torch is lit.

Netbook Description

My netbook is special to me because it helps me alot.

My netbook is thin and shaped like a rectangle. It looks black on the outside and a keyboard that has a screen and it has a webcam.

My learning tool has sound when I use tux paint and when I log in. It feels hard and smooth on the cover and it is light when you hold it with one hand. It is rough underneath the little laptop and it is smooth on top.

Triple E. p.c netbook is found in class and put in a C.O.W to charge overnight. We keep it in our tote tray or leave it on our table during the day when we are in class.

The little netbook is a learning tool and it helps me with my learning in class and it shows me how to get to the internet access and I can work on it.

It has a keyboard and internet and you have to be careful and be cybersmart, respect it and be responsible. You must also remember it is a learning tool not a toy.

We are the first people in New Zealand to have netbook for our learning.

The little netbook is a learning tool and it has internet and we always have to take responsibility for our learning and behaviour when we are around our netbook.

Math Reflection Week 2

Learning Intention- My learning Intention is to order fraction. 

A fraction is a sort of Math. There are Denaminator like how many pieces do I have?. Numerator is like how many I give away?. There a quarters (1/4) and halves (1/2) and there a thirds (1/3) and there are more. There's lot more to learn about fractions.

I think I know it well off by heart. I only know my fractions like halves and thirds, I need to practise the other fractions.

Problem:The bird was so hungry and fell into the suitcase and was shooting people and shooting cars and the rocket fell on the bird and died.

Solution:Walter gave the donut to the bird so he can shoot that rocket.

Your opinion of the story: My opinion was that the bird was trying to shot Walter because he was trying to give the donut but the bird was scared.

Imagination Story

Mum shouted, “get up Kilistina go and help Elizabeth do her garden”. It was raining, sunny and freezing all at the same time outside and I did not want to get out of the bed.
When I was digging the humongous hole that Elizabeth needed to plant her flowers it was so boring. While I was digging I started daydreaming, I dug deeper and deeper not doing it right. Suddenly a big thump happened and I had hit on a rocky road, “ouch” I screamed.

I saw a Candy tree with a bars of chocolate hanging on it. I was scared because I heard something behind me, it was small, I froze like a statue.
Suddenly I heard a buzz coming towards me and I suddenly saw a bee fly to me and land on the ground he said “hello”.

But I was digging a hole and all of a suddenly I digged more and got into this hole. He was medium size, strong and had 2 eyes, 2 ears and short legs and arms. It had rained and rained in this place for million years. Suddenly he said “what are you doing here?”. I could not get out of the hole because it was slippery and my shoes were slippery. But he was so polite and he showed me everything.

He said to me, “Hold out your hand and close your eyes”, he gave me this shiny, golden diamond with a squishy ball bouncing inside softly and it shined like the sun.

Suddenly I felt my head shaking, it was very sore so I closed my eye and wished it to go away. I opened my I was in my backyard holding the golden diamond that lazy bee gave me to keep. I decided to keep lazy bee’s promise for ever and never forget him. He was my best friend for ever.

Glitter Art

This is a piece of a kowhaiwhai art that has glitter and paint which I drew. Reuben Paterson inspired me to draw this piece of art. I enjoyed putting on the glitter because I saw it shine. I found the drawing difficult because my lines were not that straight.

In the Beginning

Long, long ago there was a Princess named Tangaroa and she was 21. Her brother, Prince Rongo was 19. They lived together in a beach. Rongo liked sitting on the beach and praying.

All of a sudden they both jumped up because they saw sharks around them.They were in a bad mood with the sharks, because all the sharks had grown legs and big hands. Tangaroa had to fix the problem but she just couldn’t. Tangaroa was feeling so weird because all the people got swallowed up and they tried to run. They were all running but except the brothers. Next Tangaroa was so angry and stand up and went to Rongo and they disgusted what to do with the sharks. Rongo was thinking what to do, so he stand up and went and look, he was horrified with the sharks so he went back, and prayed he said “Please put those shark back into normal.

He fixed the problem back to normal. Tangaroa was very happy with Rongo. Rongo returned back to his place and stilled prayed and this was the end of the story.

Orienteering Week 1

Wow! It was fun on Wednesday because Mr McGivern and Mrs Irene came to show us how to play orienteering.

The first thing we did was we drew a map with our white board and then we had a paper from Mrs Irene and we had to go around the classroom and find the letters.

Our second thing we did was we had to figure out what the words said and McGivern gave us a hint he said “read it backwards” and we all did and it said “Have a nice day”.

Our third thing we did was we had to stand up and get in to our math groups and we had to follow Mrs Irene and the other group had to follow McGivern to the field. We all had to listen very carefully to the instructions.

Our fourth thing we did was that we had to get a paper and run to our letter whenever Mrs Irene and McGivern said them.

Our fifth thing was to do was run around the circle and clip the paper when we saw the letter and we were not allowed to go back.

My favourite thing we did was when we had to clip the paper into the sharp clipper. We had to finish off and come back because it was morning tea time.
