My Train Story

On the weekend my family went on the train which was red and white and it had wheels. We looked at the waterfall and rocks and trees. The train went over a big bridge. The train stopped at the train station and we got off.  We had a good time on the train.  By Christopher

Going Outside the House

In the weekend my brother and sister and I went outside to the back yard of our house.   When we got there I put my gloves and socks and shoes on.  We looked at the weeds and long grass and then went to the carport to grab some more weeds and grass.  We had such a brilliant time and I hope I can go and help my brother and sister again.

Sports Day at Tamaki

Before the holidays we went to Tamaki Sports day with lots of other classes.  When we got there we had morning tea under a canopy.  Some of the games were:  throwing the ball through a hole, mini soccer, running races, javelin throws and the obstacle course (which Geara was on).
We had a break and sat under a canopy to have our lunch and played one or two more games and then went back to school.  I loved the sports day.

Dinner Time by Ana

On Saturday Mum cooked Tuna Pasta and fish fingers for our family dinner.  We ate it in the lounge while watching TV.  After we had eaten, Dad and I carried our plates into the kitchen and I helped Dad with the dishes.  Dad washed them and I liked it when he put the soap in the water because it made lots of bubbles.  I enjoyed our dinner because it was very tasty.

The hero saves the day by Conor

This was my favourite movie because it had my favourite song and a Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver. I liked the part where the main hero saves the day from a computer virus.
The lesson in that movie was do not accept pop ups on your computer.
