A fitness Poem

For this week we have been writing poems about our daily tasks at school. I wrote about our fitness run everyday at 12:45 pm. I really enjoyed writing poems and hope you can try it too. Have fun !!

Huffing and puffing out the red gate
Image result for pe fitnessRunning to the reserve is what I hate
I push myself to try and try
But I always  wonder why ?

Why  we have to do this complex run
Most people don’t even think it’s fun.
I get halfway and thirst for a beverage
My friends help me by giving me Leverage

I finally make it back into the street
And I see the first runners ready to eat
In myself I felt a lot of pride
As I knew my unfitness habit just died.

Manaiakalani Film Festival

Excitement filled us as we made my way into the street. Team 5 were on their way to Sylvia Park Hoyts for the 8th Manaiakalani film festival !! Manaiakalani is a cluster of schools all using digital devices for learning, and the film festival is when all of the schools make unique movies and submit them to Mrs Burt (founder of Manaiakalani ) and then makes a decision of which movies will be selected on the Extreme screen during the evening.

We took one step on the bus and could already feel the excitement rushing through our bodies. we sat down in the second row. “All seats are filled” shouted Miss Clark. The engine of the bus rumbled and its sound reminded us of a stomach grumbling. Talking was the main thing that was being done on the bus. Jalen and Zane started singing wheels on the bus trying to get everyone started up but Miss Clark asked if they could be quiet they looked very embarrassed . We felt that it was the moment to blast out our laughter at them but as good friends we tried our best to hold on.

10 minutes passed by and we finally arrived at Sylvia Park. We were eager to go and sit on the seats hoping that we get the best seats in the house.  The time had come for us to get off the bus and start moving to the cinema. We stepped one foot into the screening room craving for popcorn but we knew we weren’t allowed. We proceed to find out sadly we didn’t have the greatest seats but were still satisfied with our seats.

Silent filled the room as the 8th Manaiakalani started. Laughter, smiles and drama were filling everyone in the cinemas. 1 hour flew by and the Manaiakalani film festival ended. Stretching our arms we walked outside. Waiting for the bus we played games and talked about our favourite movies. The buses arrived and we made our way back to school. The 8th Manaiakalani film fest done !  

Talking Points

Our week 7 reading task is to justify our opinions with a reason. Me and Rave
have been working through this presantation and finding answers and adding more
details to make our readers understand. Take a look at our awesome work !!

The Secret Underground

This is a presantation which tells us about animals or insects the lives underground.
We chose to investigate more about Weta's and see beyond their habitats. I found
out a lot so take a look !

The Seeing Hawk

For our week 6 reading task we have been looking at a book called the seeing
hawk. It is a story all about a Grandpa and his Grandson. That's all the details
I can tell you so take a look at the presantation and dig in. Hope you enjoy !

My Writing Test


“Hurray” I shouted in my head as Miss Clark called out my group. I just had been put in the same group as my friends.  We had been put into groups of 5 or 6 for the Amazing Race. The Amazing Race was a treat from our teachers to say Thank You for your hard effort this year. I quickly put on my P.E shirt with excitement just like the excitement I had when I see my cousins from overseas.

My friends and I make our way together into the street ready for the challenges ahead. Butterflies in my tummy made me feel anxious about what we were going to do. But I knew that working with my friends would be easier, faster and exciting! We got handed a brown coloured paper with all the stations of activities we were about to face. Each station has a limited time. We all get 10 minutes on 4 stations.

First off was the pea pipes. This game is played with straws, peas and of course our breath. We have to suck the pea on the straw just like sucking on a soft drink and quickly run to the other side and drop it in the white plastic bowl carefully. “ 3 2 1 go !” Miss Hockly shouts with joy. Quinlan was first to take on this Pea pipes challenge for our group. She walks as fast as she can to the white plastic bowl. But when she made it halfway our bowl tips over by the harsh breeze of air. I was frustrated. The look on my face was as ferocious as a lion. I couldn't stand losing, we just could not lose. I try and keep my frustration inside of me. But thanks to my friends the just keep on encouraging Quinlan . That's when I realised that something better than winning is having your friends by your side.

We continue on with the complex challenge as a group and this time I looked at the challenge differently. I looked at it as a way to enjoy myself and bonding time with my friends. As we knew it time flew by and the challenge was over. We had won the challenge !! We jump up and down like a kangaroo pouncing on the spot.  

We walked over to our next station knowing that if we have fun and work as a group it would make things easier and less complicated. “Uh oh this looks disgusting” I exclaimed to Khaia. We walked into the area that was located  for the Fear Factor station.This couldn't be easy. My group of friends and I see 4 big plastic bowls filled with all sorts of food. We hoped and prayed that we didn't have to eat it. We has a closer look inside and I noticed spaghetti. It gave me the thoughts of gross slimy worms.  Goosebumps started to appear on my hands. I could not see what was hiding under the layer of spaghetti but it quickly gave me memories of vomit. I wasn't able to look no more.

I sat down with a disgusted face and knew that I had my friends to go through this with me so everything was fine.
