Blueberries

    o you know how blueberries grow? They grow on bushes. Each blueberry is small and round. Many blueberries can grow on one bush. At first, the blueberries are green. The green berries are not ready to eat yet. They need a lot of sun and rain to help them become fat and sweet. When the berries turn blue, they are ripe and ready to be picked.

Some farmers grow blueberries in big fields. The people who live nearby can earn money by helping to pick the blueberries. Each one takes a pail out to the field and fills it with blueberries. They work fast so that they can fill many pails. They want to earn as much money as they can. When they are done picking, their fingers are blue from the juice of the berries!

After the blueberries are picked, they are put into boxes and sent to stores. People buy the blueberries and take them home to eat. Some people like to wash the berries and eat them one by one. Other people like to cook with blueberries. They make blueberry muffins and pancakes.

No matter how you eat them, blueberries taste great!

Today's topic was all about Musical Madness. At Pt England School we would always have different topics of the term. Today team 4 will be doing loads of fun things to do and I am really looking forward to it.


This term Pt England School will be learning how to play an Instrument, and will be learning how to make their own SONG!! I will be looking forward to it. “Now it is time for TEAM 1” Mr Burt says. So the teachers started to gather around on the stage. Team 1 was acting about how music can give you emotions. Next it was team 2 turn to do there item. They were singing a song could The Jungle I really liked how Miss Gaston was singing the song. And I also like how the other teachers were playing their own instrument.


Team 4 will be learning how to make there own music I will be really excited. And we will also be making our own instruments. Team 4 movie was very funny. They were doing a karaoke in the car. They would lipsync and dance around like CrAzY!!

Making Cookies

During the holidays me and my auntie were making cookies. We were making peanut butter cookies I was really looking forward to be eating it. While we were making our cookies me and my aunt decided to play some music.


While me and my aunt finished putting everything we needed for the cookies we started to mixing it. While we were mixing it. It started to come out the way we wanted it to be. After all the arm work we got some on rolled it into a circle shape and put it down. When we finished rolling all of the dough we put it into the oven. But after about like 10 min the cookies were still not ready so we called my mum from work I was scared that she might get angry at me for calling her while she was busy so I gave it to my aunt.


When I gave her the phone my mum picked up. When my aunt called her she said “How do you work to oven?” she said. When my mum finished explaining it to her she started to LAUGH!! So I told her what happened and she said that we have to wait until the oven gets hot so we both Laughed like CrAzY!!! So we waited. When the oven got hot we started to put the cookies in the oven. While we were waiting we decided to watch some videos on Youtube. After about 5 min we bringed out the cookies BUT all of a sudden we could smell the burn. When we turned around the cookies we could see the BURN!!

“Oh NOOO” My aunt said. She got upset because she put lots of effort into it but at the same time we still ate it with Milk. It was OK if it wasn’t BURNT. I had loads of FUN!! Making cookies. I was proud of myself for helping my aunt make the cookies. It was the best!! Thank you aunt for looking after us through the holidays I really appreciate it. You are the best love you heaps hope you had the best holidays too. THANK YOU !!!!! (But I really think the the cookies were an epic FAIL)

Going To Rainbows End

On the most beautiful day we went to Rainbows End. (Ok let me tell what happened from the beginning) Me and my little siblings got up at 8:00am we were still tired but we had to get ready to GO!! While we were up my mum made us breakfast to get us wide awake.

When I finished my breakfast I went to change into my clothes. I was really excited to go and have some FUN!! With my family. When we got there we could see loads of fun things to do. I could see the Roller coaster going like CrAzY!! I really didn’t know what ride we would be going on first.

While we were walking around we decided to go on the Log Flume ride. While we were there the line was so long I really wished that the line was short so that we can go on first. After about 20 minutes it was our turn to go on the ride I was really excited. When we went inside the log we had to wait until the big circle had to move so that our log can move too. “Ahhhhhh” I screamed. When the ride was finished I got a bit wet and my little sister in the front got REALLY!! Wet it was a bit funny. “LET'S GO ON ANOTHER RIDE!” My sister screamed out. So we did.After going on the other rides we had to go home. I was upset but I still had LOADS!! Of FUN! My favourite ride in Rainbows End was the Stratosphere it was the scariest ride of all.

My Big Day At Sylvia Park

On a bright shiny day me, my siblings and my mum went to watch a Movie at Sylvia Park we decided to watch Captain Underpants. We wanted to watch our movie at 1:00pm but at the same time we wanted to go watch the movie right away so we did.


When we got there the movie started straight away. We were trying to look for our sets but instead we just sat anywhere I didn’t know if it was someone else's set but we still sat on it. When the movie started we got the Popcorn and our drinks ready. I was very excited to watch Captain Underpants because I know that it is going to funny.


After half of the movie finish all of our Popcorn and drinks were finish, Even though the drinks were bigger than my head it was still finished. In the movie I really like it how the principle transformed to Captain Underpants and I really liked how it had there own Carnival at school.


When the movie finished we went to have a little walk around Sylvia Park. After an hour we ended up buying clothes like always. We bought my clothes for tomorrow. After we did our little shopping or should I say “BIG SHOPPING” We decided to go and have a feast at McDonald's. After our BIG Lunch. My dad came to pick us up from our big day. I was so exhausted from our big adventure at Sylvia Park.

My Sisters 5th Birthday

Yesterday was my sister's 5th Birthday. And she will be coming to Pt England School so now that all my siblings are all at Pt England I am very excited to see them around. Her name is Safaleletaua but for shourt you can call her Sa or Taua.

On her 5th Birthday I got her lip gloss, a book and pens. I was very excited to go and celebrate her birthday with her friends and family. We celebrated her birthday it a childcare could Teuila Kids. While we were waiting for everyone to come one of my cousins came. Then we could see people coming through the door holding presents. When my sister saw the presents she got very excited.

“It’s here” the kids SCREAMED!! Out my mum went to check what was it and it was the Bouncy Castle. The kids were screaming like animals when they were setting it up the kids went to watch superhero videos because it was also Superhero Day. The teachers and my mum were setting up the food for the kids and the Elders. And the cousins were just playing around outside like crazy. “It is time to eat” My mum yelled out to us. So we went inside to eat.

When we finished eating the older cousins including me had to prepare the beds for the kids to sleep at it was pretty tiring to do because you had to carry the beds and do the blankets and had to make the kids go to sleep it was like we were working there. I asked one of the teachers if we get paid and they said yes I was like screaming out YESSSSS!!!! But actually it was a NO!!! I got very upset but I just went with it. While the all the kids were sleeping we went to eat again while we were eating one of the kids were crying so I told the my older cousin to go because I was tired.

When the kids woke up they all wanted to go and play on the Bouncy Castle so then the teachers told them to put on there shoes and to line up and they did it straight away. While they were playing outside the cousins were just looking out for the kids.
