Boy on Bike

Today in Literacy, My group was reading a story with Mr Buys, the story was called Boy on bike. There was a boy named Mac who wanted to help fund-raise money for St Johns so that they could buy some more ambulances. Mac's father asked Mac how he is going to raise money, Mac said he would ride his bike from the top of the North Island  to the bottom. At the beginning of his adventure his aim was to raise $5,000 but at the end of his adventure he raised over $7,000. Here is a poster that I made showing Mac riding on his bike during his adventure, here is a picture of the map and the orange line is where he rode is bike. He started from Cape Reinga down to Wellington.

Writing about Zeal Zone

Last week Friday afternoon we were learning about Tinkering Tools and Toys.We were planning to make changes of parts of our school that needed to be improved. First we got into our groups, and after we got into our groups we played charades. When we finished playing we went around our school and took photos of what we wanted to change.

When we got the picture that we needed we came back and worked on a presentation that helped us choose the idea that we wanted to improve. Our 3 final ideas was, putting Maori artworks on the Wharefono wall to decorate the Wharefono, Putting a toilet in the corner of the village so that the kids doesn't have to run around the school. Our 3 idea was to change the barks that on the playgrounds because little kid throw barks at each other and the bark can go into someone's eye.

When we finished we, talked in our group about which one we will do, so we all agreed on putting Maori patterns on the Wharefono walls to decorate it, we chose it because it was easy to do and we didn't need much things to work on it. So when we're in our Zeal Zone groups we are working on making Maori artworks.

Writing Recount

It was christmas day and we were going to Rotorua“Come on kids, get up and pack your stuff, we are going to Rotorua pools, it’s going to take us a long time to get there, Your cousin’s are here as well!!” my mum was shouting in the hallway. “It’s only 6:00 in the morning and we have to get up now” my sister moaned. But I was already finished packing my stuff “my togs, towel,  sunscreen, my own food, and 2 fizzy drinks of my own, now it’s time play outside before we go” I said. 1 hour later, we were still at home trying to put stuff in our car.

Finally, we were on our way, man my mum was right it is a long way to get to rotorua pools. All of my brothers and sisters were asleep but it was only me that wasn’t asleep. As they were sleeping I was going through their bags to see what they packed, in my sister bag was her laptop, “Yes” I whispered “I can play some games now” I said. I was playing minecraft for ages “oh man, the battery is nearly dead, I better put this back before I get Snapped” As I was putting her laptop away I found her phone, “Now I know what to do, Jam some music the whole way” I said to myself.

Finally we got there we first I went straight to the toilets and got changed. After I changed I came running out the toilets and did a big splash in the pool. “ Ah it’s nice and warm” I said. When we finished having a swim, we got changed and ate. As I was eating my  Chocolates and lollies that I packed I heard my sister say to my cousin “come lets listen to some music on my laptop” “Oh-uh” I said my sister opened up the lid and the laptop was dead. “What I was charging it the whole time at home” she screamed. Then she turned on her phone and it was only 1 percent left “what it can’t be”  Then it was time for us to eat, but I was already full.Then it was time for us to go home.

It was the best day of my life, spending time with my family, making my sister have a good christmas day. Next year I think it would be better and know it will be my brothers turn to have an awesome christmas day because I know what they are going to pack. What I liked on that day was that I never got snapped from anyone. What an amazing day.

The Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels

Here is my presentation about the Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels. On the bottom is my writing about the Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels. So have a read and I hope you enjoy.

During World War 2, soldiers from Australia went to World War 2 at 1939. At 1945 World War 2 ended, some soldiers from Australia ended up in Papua New Guinea, some were wounded and some weren’t.

People in Papua New Guinea found some soldier in the forest wounded and hurt so they helped them. It was awkward to the soldiers because they never knew that they would be saved by the Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels. When the soldiers got healed they went back to Australia.
