Manaiakalani Film Festival by Conor

I really liked the rubbish down the drain movie. The movie was about a boy who littered. His rubbish went down the drain into the sea and a baby turtle ate the rubbish and died. The turtle's dad came to the classroom and said, "don't litter! There are turtles that need to reach the sea and you could kill them by littering. From that day the boy never littered again.
The message was don't litter. I enjoyed the film festival. by Conor

Ana Goes to the Movies by Ana

When I went to Hoyts Cinema to watch the movies I met up with lots of my old friends from Sylvia Park School . I really enjoyed Sylvia Park Junior’s movie about celebrating birthdays. They had parties and their family came along too.  I felt happy.

I don't like...I like ...

I do not like eggs because they might be rotten.  

I do not like running because my legs get sore.

I do not like alligators because they hide under the bridge at Auckland zoo.

My favourite colour is pink not orange. My favourite T.V programme is Sky Sport not FIFI World Cup. My favourite fruit is apple not pineapple. My favourite place is home not a shopping mall.

Halloween Night by Marciano

On Friday the 31st of October there was a Halloween Party at a Church near our house. Mum, Umi and I got there by walking down to Mt Wellington. While I was waiting for some candy I saw my friends from Sylvia Park.  There was a rock climbing wall there. I had some chips and sausages with tomato sauce on top and it tasted delicious. I crawled up the giant rock on the wall by wearing the helmet, shoulder pads, and some knee pads. After I got to the top of that wall and I got down I won some lollies then I said out loud " The Dragon Warrior is here to join theTeam Avatar”!!!. It was the most amazing party ever.

Sick Weekend

In the weekend all my family and I were ill. We all had a bad stomach bug. My whole family was feeling very ill. We stayed at home all weekend. What a "disaster zone". It started on Friday and it finished on Monday. But Mum and Dad are still ill. Everyone else is better.
I hope the bug does not come back to our family again.

Our Music Boxes By Troy

We made our music band outside of our class room. We chose our own boxes to play our music. We tied our spoons, knifes & forks into our boxes and then we hit them with other pieces of cutlery to hear the sound that they made.  We tried to play the digeridoos but they were hard to play.  We had fun.

Disney Junior by Christopher

On the weekend I watched Disney Junior and I liked the Mickey Mouse Club the best. I saw Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and Pluto. Pluto was playing with a bouncy ball.
It bounced really high. I was very happy because it was fun.

On Friday our class made pumpkin masks for Halloween. First we coloured our cardboard orange and then we cut out a circle shape. 

We had oval shapes for the eyes, a triangle nose and a zig zag mouth which we put on our circle. Next we traced around the shapes and then we cut them out. 

Lastly we got some wool and tied it on the mask. I was very happy because it was Halloween.

We Made Our Digeridoo. By Troy, Dillion & Marciano

Three weeks ago we made our didgeridoo for Saturday school in class. We coloured blue, green, red, yellow, black & white on our digeridoo. Then we drew pictures and patterns on it and we painted the didgeridoo to make it look like a real one.  We looked at pictures and patterns
and then copied them.

Making Hamburgers by William

We bought some new games. They were cooking games. 
It is fun playing the games. I like making the food on the iPad. 
The cook makes the food and she gives it to people. 
My favourite food in the game is the hamburger. It is made with a patty, cheese and tomatoes and lettuce. I have to place people on their chairs so that they can order food. There were a lot of people coming in, so I had to be really fast. I have gotten much better at it now.

My Headache by Marciano

Last Friday I had a headache so had to go and lie down in Kay’s class as my head kept hurting and I couldn’t stand it anymore.

I lay down and may even have gone to sleep.  When I woke up our class were having their “Grooming” Sessions so I cleaned my face and combed my hair.  I didn’t want any gel in my hair so I left it as it was.  I hope I don’t have a headache again.  It was nice to rest my head.  I got better.

Ana's Makeover by Ana

On Friday the 8th of August, after morning tea, we had our “Grooming” lessons in our classroom.  First we had to go to the bathroom and brush our teeth and then we came back to class.  I cleaned my face and ears with my flannel, combed my hair with my comb and had gel put in my hair.  Michelle styled my hair and it looked beautiful.  We also cleaned our shoes. I was happy.
