Athletics

At Pt England School we have our own Athletics. I was looking forward to be playing all kinds of sports with the whole of Pt England School. At Pt England School we get to be in groups. The Group I was in is called Te Aurere properly the best group in Pt England School.
When I walked in class the room was full of colours. Red, Blue, Green and Yellow sometimes other colours. I was very excited to do, Shout Put, Tug - O - War, Discus and Sprints. When we finished getting ready to go and do Athletics we lined up to go and have some Fun!! At Athletics. When we walked through the Breeze we could see the students sitting in there lines. While sitting in our lines for Athletics we needed to listen to Miss Va’afusuaga for the extractions.

”Year 6 girls you may GO!!” I was very happy to do Athletics with my friends. The first activity we got to do was called Target Ball. “ON YOUR MARK GET SET GO!!” So we all got the balls trying to throw it to the other team. It was a very challenging game but we still gave it a go. After the game we all sat down to see who was the winning team but all of a sudden the team that has won was the Green Team, And the second winning team was the Yellow Team, And the team that has came third was Blue so that means Red has came last but we tried our best and we had loads of Fun!!

After all the activities that we did it was the teacher's turn to do their relays, At Pt England School the teachers would always do relays after our Athletics. When we finished everything we all had to go to class to get ready to go home.

My favourite part about Athletics is that everyone worked as a team. I was very proud of the year 6 girls for trying their very best to win the games. On Soft ball throw I came third. Thank you Miss Va’afusuaga for putting the activities together.

Blueberries


Blueberry Free Stock Photo - Public Domain PicturesFree photo: Blueberries, Blueberry, Fruit, Food - Free Image on ...

    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.

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.

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.

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.

Going To My Aunt's House

Yesterday Me and my family went to my Aunt's house, When we were there we were playing Tag after playing tag we went to play on the trampling, It was very fun jumping around like Monkeys. We got very bored playing in the trampling so we went inside, When we were inside we went upstairs playing around like CrAzY!

We got very tired so we just went in the rooms making a fort with the blankets and the pillows it so much fun. When we finished making our fort we went inside watching a movie it was could The Emoji Movie it was so funny while we were watching the movie one of our older cousins were sleeping me and other cousins got the pens from another room and started drawing on her face. “Were Finished” I whispered then we all laughed we couldn't hold it in.

When she woke up she told us “What Happened?” Then my little cousin gave her the mirror then she started chasing us so we went outside running for our lives it was very funny, Then she caught us so we followed her inside, She told us to do everything for her we were acting like her slave but it was a bit fun. The boys had to fan her and the girls had to give her food and water. One of the boys accidentally hit her with the fan so he started running for his lives it was so funny so we all hide from her.

When we finished playing the game we went to the fort and started watching the movie. When we finished the movie we started busting down the fort we were going CrAzY we got the pillows and started hitting each other it was SOOOOOOO FUNNY!! When we finished playing we started playing music and cleaning the room because it looked like an animal's room, When we finished cleaning we started dancing to the song it was so much fun.

White Sunday Part 2

Today me and my family had our real White Sunday. Let me tell you what happened first, Me and my family woke up at about 6am I was very exhausted. So first I went to brush my teeth and then went to get change, In White Sunday you would have to wear White. After that I went to have breakfast with the family.

When we finished our breakfast we went to get ready to go Church. I was very excited but nervous at the same time. While I was at Church waiting for the others to come my friend came, I was very happy. So we both went to the hall because that is where we are going to meet the others.

“Talofa Lava Tamaiti!” In english it means Hello Kids. “We are going to do the prayer and getting ready to go inside OKEY!” Every time we have our White Sunday we would always sing a song to enter the Church. I was very nervous to get up the stage. After the little kids my class had to go and get ready.

After the other performance it was us I was very nervous and had all the butterflies in my stomach. I had only one part in our item. I was the first one to get up on the stage so I went. All the kids had to say there parts loud and clear so that the elders can hear us. When it was my turn to say my part I said it out LOUD!!!

After I said my part I was very proud of myself, And I was also happy that I finished my part. After our play we had to sing a song at first it was a fail because we had to sing low so it was an epic fail, So we tried again. “YAY we are done” I said So we all changed back to our clothes.

You're The Best Miss Parrant

White Sunday

It is finally the HOLIDAYS!!! “YAY” Me and my family won’t be doing much in the holidays, But I do know that we are go to do White Sunday. I am very excited and a bit nervous because you would have to perform on stage speaking in Samoa. For me it is very hard to speak my own language.


Me and my little siblings will be doing White Sunday this year. “It is time to go” I would tell her where we would be going and she would say “ We are going to practice for White Sunday. Sometimes I don’t like going practices because you would have to do a play, learn your parts and learn the songs. It is a lot of hard work. Sometimes my mom would scold me for not saying the words properly.

Cross Country


On a shiny bright day, it was Friday and we had Cross Country at Pt England School on the field. People were not excited to go and most people were. My house colour was red and it is called Te aurere.

“PLING PLING!!” The bell rang so we quickly got changed and got into our lines. We walked through the breeze and saw people sitting on the court. The year ones were in the front and the year 8 were at the back.

Then it was the year 6s girls turn so we lined up getting ready. I was very nervous and scared because the run was 1.5 kilometres. Then SNAP!!! The clapper goes and the year 6 girls running I did not know who was running the lead so I ran as fast as I could. When we finished running the Pt England field we went to the muddiest part of the run so I walked because I thought it was disgusting and smelly, I did not like it. My heart was racing and my legs were struggling.
When I reached the finish line I was happy and proud that I finished the run. I was so tired. I was so thirsty and hot so I went to get some water. I was so happy that I finished the run. We went to set down for the next race. Lot’s of people were happy that the race is finished. “YAY it’s going to be the weekend’s.” When the Cross Country was finished we got to our class to get ready to go home.

Me, Sulli, Jungkook and Taehyung got out of the plane and headed to the airport in Korea. We could see people being helpful to each other, And singing Christmas songs. While waiting in a line people were handing little present’s to the people. After everything We headed to our Hotel. Then someone called out our name’s so then we stopped and looked, It was a girl we did not know. She told us if we wanted to go to her Christmas party so we accepted it. On the invitation it told us what time it is going to be and were the place is going to be at.
After reading the invitation we went to get ready to go. After half an hour we got to our car and went to the party. “I think this is not a good idea”. Taeyang said. “Why?” Sulli said. “Because we do not know who this person is”. Jungkook agreed with him. So we left. We all wanted to go for a walk in the forest so we went to this funny looking one. We got out of the car and start walking to the forest We were just just walking and out of nowhere we could hear squeaky little, scary sounds We were scared and frightened we tried to get out of the haunted forest. Then suddenly we could see shadow’s wondering around and it was talking. It said that if we don’t leave in five seconds we are dead so we ran of screaming.”Run for your lives” I said. So we ran as far as possible.

Matariki Day

On Friday we went to assembly. After assembly we went to our home classrooms to do the roll and to collect our bags. Miss Parrant gave us stickers that have our names on it. I had to go to room 11 & 12. The teachers that we had was Mrs Moala, Miss Davis and  Miss Tumahai. What we did for Matariki was weaving I was very excited to start of. The instructions were very simple so we got started. It was very easy to weave with paper. I had a partner that was a year one his name was Benje I had to help him how to weave with paper. When we finished our first weaving Miss Tumahai put up our weaving. All of us were trying to make a big picture. So we had to weave blue paper for the sky, we had to weave green paper to make to grass and we had to weave brown paper for the dirt. So me and Benje got two pice of paper to make another one it took ages to make but we still did it. After all the weaving the picture looked so cool I thought that we did well. I really liked the picture that we made. The boys made kites which was really cool. And Miss Davis took photos and printed them out she cut them out and put it on our weaving picture. It looked very cool because it looked like they were looking at the kites. After that Miss Moala and Miss Davis took a photo of all of us. My favourite part of the Matariki day was helping the little kids with the weaving and I also like weaving.

Swimming Lessons


Team 4 had swimming lessons at Glen Innes Pools. Team 4 was so excited to swim at the pools. Every 3 weeks we have to bring our togs and towels to school.

Team 4 has to walk all the way to the Glen Innes Pools. While we were there we had to listen to the teacher about how to be safe in the water. I only swam for 3 days. Room 8 had to go for our showers first before we get on the water. It was really warm in the water.

In that 3 days I learned how to be safe under water and how to get on the water safely. We had to swim forward and backwards which was really fun. My row had to float on our backs and screamed out HELP!! It was really funny. I really liked swimming with the instructor they were very kind and helpful.

It was really fun swimming with Kat, Jass and Jed they were really fun and kind. I would like to learn more things about swimming. It was really fun and difficult for me.
