The Year In Room 16



Room 16 is the best class I have ever been in because Mr Somerville always plays music in class when we are quiet and he lets us have some free time on our netbooks when we have finished our work! It is really cool in room 16 because if you are really good Mr S will give you a green card, a green card is like a point for being good and at the end of every term Mr S has a auction for the hole class. You could get all of these cool toys and sports stuff by buying with how many green cards you've had in a term. So far Mr S said to me that I am winning green cards this term.

I really like to spend time with my friends in class and I also like to talk to them as well, I try to not talk in class because if I do I always get into trouble. Sometimes when I do talk to my friends my friend get's the blame if my teacher see's him talking, but it was actually me that started to talk. I feel bad when they get the blame because they didn't start talking to me it was myself. I love room 16.

My Dog Alfie

Alfie is a pet of mine which is a pitbull, he does bite only if you get him angry he will bite your face. I like to play with him a lot with a ball, he knows how to fetch but he doesn't bring the ball back to me. Do you like to play with your pets? Alfie is a boy he is really tough and has a lot of fights with other dogs. When he was a puppy he bit me on the lip, I didn't do anything to him I was just watching Scooby Doo. After that I got really mad and gave him a slap on the back and then he ran to the kitchen.



Do you hate pets when they are viscous and annoying because if you do you can forgive because of there little puppy eyes. Please don't hit pets like what I did!!!!

Netbook Reflection 2012

It has been the best year for me using a netbook because I have learnt a lot of things I didn’t know last year. It has been challenging using a Netbook sometimes, but most of the time it has been awesome. The first time I got my netbook I was really excited , actually I was more than excited I was over the moon, I wasn't really but you know what I mean. It was the first time I had ever used a netbook, it was a little bit awkward because I was really excited to use it but I never really knew what to do.


The great thing about using a netbook is learning how to be cybersmart, you can be cybersmart by doing a lot of things like solving other people’s problems and knowing what to do when your internet is slow or something. It is really better than using pencils and paper, What would you prefer paper and pencils or a fantastic netbook? I already know your answer, it is Netbooks. It is really fun because we have a lot of working space’s like under a tree or recording inside a quiet room. I love writing story’s, narrative’s and recounts because when I was a little boy I liked to write with a pencil, that was where it all started.


I really get frustrated when my internet is really slow because all the work I did was not saved and that means that it was all gone. I think that the netbook’s need to be stronger and have stronger hinges because it is really easy to break, a lot of people’s hinges have come off and screen’s cracked. I am really lucky I don’t have any of those problem, I must be GIFTED.


I thank Mr and Mrs Burt for this opportunity for using netbooks.I really liked using a netbook this year. I look forward how next year is going to go.

Funniest Thing On Camp

There was not that much people that did anything funny, but I did something I wasn't meant to do, It wasn't really funny because it happened to me and only Mr Marks saw me do this. When we woke up on the first morning of camp we went for a run in the woods, it was really tiring going up the steep hills and it was really slippery as well. The run was nearly over and I was starving.




When I was near the end I had to hold on to trees so I can reach the bottom of the hill. As I was going down I let go of the trees and started to jog down the hill, jogging was really hard because you had to lean back so you wouldn't fall over. I started to run and as I was running my legs were out of control and when I reached the bottom I face planted on to the ground. It was not embarrassing because the only person to see me fall over was Mr Marks.



Next time you run down a big hill WATCH OUT!!!!!!!

Smurfs

Smurfs is one of my favourite movie's that have interesting characters and they also have a lot of funny parts in the movie as well. I really like watching when it is a rainy day. My favourite character is papa Smurf because  he is an old person that is always prepared for an adventure. I think the funniest Smurf is Brainy Smurf because whenever a character doesn't say something right or do some thing right he would always correct them in a funny way or some times he is wrong. People may think Brainy Smurf is not funny but that's what I think. Have you seen the because if you haven't here is the trailer!!!

Alien

Are aliens real or are they just green human’s with antennas, I have no idea if they are real or not, how about you. I have an alien toy which is called ET, he is very old and he is a stuffed toy. A lot of people think that ET is scary but to me he is normal, I don’t sleep with him he stays in the lounge sitting next to the TV.


Have you ever seen the movie ET, have you actually watched it. Do you even know who ET is, because if you don’t you will love if you watch the movie here is a part from ET.

Toys

There are a lot of different types of toys around the world. I'd like to have all the toys that were made for boys at my house because I would never get board only if the toys ran out. Would you like to have a toy, if you were a little girl perhaps Barbie will help. If you're a boy and you are upset maybe a car would make you feel better. When I am upset I watch TV so I can forget about the bad things and think about the good things. Next time you are upset buy a toy at Toy World.

Two Soldiers On a Mission

One sunny morning two soldiers were sent from Turkey to america so they can show american's how to cross the road. It was a long journey for the to get to america because they came on a boat. They faced a lot of challenges like fishing and looking for water. As they came closer to America they saw a lot of cargo ships and fishing boats. They were so happy that day.



When they settled into there new hotel in America they were so hungry and thirsty. They were really lucky because the hotel's food was free and same as the drinks. The hotel's name was called the Swiff Para, I didn't know why they called it that but at least they have a name for the hotel.


As the two soldiers saw a crossing they quickly ran to it. When they were started to cross the road they first ran down a big hill and when they did it they face planted on to the road. They were really lucky because if there was a car coming or even a truck they would of been flat mates.


Next time you see a pedestrian crossing would you act like your best at crossing or will you look before you cross.

My Toy Came Alive

While walking to the warehouse to buy a remote control helicopter with my dad we stopped for some ice cream. When we chucked our rubbish in the bin we carried on walking. As we entered the store my dad and I went to the toys section. I looked around to see if I could find the helicopter toy that I wanted. Finally I saw the toy, I was really lucky because it was the last one! I raced like Usain Bolt and then I got told off by one of the workers, so I started to walk fast. At last I put out my hand and reached for the toy and I GOT IT!!!! I was so happy that day.

When I got home I hoped out of the car and played with my toy outside. It was really fun because my cousin came over, he had a helicopter toy just like me and we both played together. It was nearly night time and my cousin had to go home for dinner and so did I. As I fell to sleep I heard a sound, it sounded really familiar. It was my helicopter, I couldn't believe that it was alive flying by itself. I knew it was alive because when I went to sleep I took the batteries out of the remote control and put them in the cupboard.

It was so cool that my toy which was the last one on the shelf came alive. I was so shocked that it flew by itself. I didn't know what to do with it, so I just left it and went back to sleep. When I woke up I saw my helicopter lying on the ground, I couldn't notice if it was broken or sleeping. I was about to pick it up when suddenly it jumped up and started to fly, it was so cool that my toy was alive.

Next time you see a toy would you buy it or leave it?

Food

A lot of food can sometimes help or just make you unhealthy. I like to eat a lot of junk food because it is delicious and it smells nice. When ever we past a takeaway I try to not get tempted to ask my parents if I could get some. Do you like junk food?I wish that anything I could touch with my hand can turn into junk food so I can eat it, but that will never happen only if I had powers!!!!



There are a lot of takeaways here in NZ, it is actually a NZ icon. My favourite kind of food is obviously pacific food because I am a Samoan and my cultures food is YUMMY. Next time I go to Otara and I see Le Sunrise I am definitely going to get some food from there.

My Favourite Animal

My favourite is a parrot because it is colourful and it can fly. I wish I could fly one day. Parrots are one of the rarest birds in the whole wide world. Parrots are mostly found in tropical and subtropical regions. The greatest parrots are found in South Africa and Australasia. The cool thing about parrots is that you can actually teach them to talk like humans, not all parrots can speak human words. Parrots have one of the best minds around the world, by that I'm talking about animals.

Toy Car

Holidays

In the holidays it was OKAY, it was a little bit boring because on the first week of the holidays my sister Mauina went to Riverside camp. The thing think was fun was when I went to Otara to send money to Samoa for their white Sunday. We also got to eat there as well, I ate coconut bun and also a germane bun. If you don't know what a germane bun is and you would like to know, it is just coconut inside a crispy bun.




I had a lot of fun on that day I hope I can do it again. The next day wasn't very exciting because it was very cold and there was nothing to do except watch T.V. I was really hungry so I went and had some breakfast. After that I went to wash my face and brush my teeth. I hope my next holiday won't be as boring as the last one.

My Best Friends




My best friends is Rocky, Jabez, Levi, and Shayne. I first met Jabez in room 8, we weren't friends that time because we didn't really hang out that much. The first time I met Levi was in room 8 as well, we were actually best friends at the time. I met Rocky and Shayne in room 8 as well. The funny thing is that we are all in the same class.

Getting Into Trouble

Every time I get in trouble, I get really scared because if my parents find out about the bad thing I did I will most likely to get a smack, ha ha ha just kidding. The last thing I did to get in trouble is when I made a hole in the wall, but I really didn't get in trouble because my parents don’t know about it yet. I hate getting in trouble because when my little sister know she goes to my dad and tells on me. But now whenever she gets into trouble I tell on her, I don’t like to tell on my sister but I have to because it is always payback!!!!


Sometimes when something of my dads is missing he always blames it on me, if it was mine then I would tell him JOKES!!!!!! The people I get in trouble from is my parents, teachers, and others. When I get into trouble I sometimes have a fight with someone or smash a window and sometimes punch the wall!!!!!


Next time when you get into trouble don’t copy me!!!

Olympic Event

Fencing is an Olympic sport which is similar to sword fighting. Fencing was introduced to the Olympic Games in 1896 and is still played now. The rules of mainstream fencing were set by the sport’s international governing body.

If you were to take part in fencing you will need to have the speed because Fencers are very quick. The gear you will need is a Protective Jacket, Gloves, Plastrom, Mask, Breaches, Knickers and a Foil. Scores are only given when the tip of the sword touches your opponent’s chest, hits with the side of the blade do not count.

Aiming to win a gold medal at the Olympic games in Fencing is a lot of hard work. You will need to have the skill and technique if you really want a gold medal. Fencing isn’t my favorite sport but I would really like to try it.

Sneeze

Sneezing happens to a lot people when they are sick or allergic to something. I sneeze a lot at home but never at school. Did you know that when you sneeze a lot of spit and sometimes your snot come out of you know what? When you sneeze you should cover you mouth with your hands or with your elbow.


Most people sneeze if they're allergic to cat’s or dog’s. I am very lucky that I am not allergic to dogs because they are my favorite pets. Did you know that everyone sneezes everyday.

When you sneeze a lot of stuff come out of your nose and mouth. I only sneeze if dust goes up my nose because that’s the only thing I’m allergic too. When you're close to someone and you sneeze on them, that person that you sneezed on will actually wipe it and walk away from you.


My solution to sneezing is that when you sneeze you can look at the sun and it will go away.

Holiday

In the Holidays I went to the HOYTS with my sisters and my mum to watch Brave. It was a really cool movie.  There were some scary parts and some cool parts in the movie. My favorite part was when the three sons turned into bears. They looked really funny. I would really like it if there was a second part of the movie.



When the movie was over we went for a big shopping at pak'n save. As we walked out of pak'n save my mum tried to call my dad. It took for a long time because my dad didn't pick up. Finally he came and we

My Favourite Athlete


Usain Bolt is the fastest man in the world and was born on the 21st of August 1986. As he grew up in Jamaica he attended Waldensia primary school, from then on he started to show off his sprinting skills. Bolt ran in the annual national primary school competition. At the age of 12 he had become the fastest in the school at the 100 meter sprint.

Bolt comes from a country where reggae music started and I really like reggae music. Did you know that bolt’s first sport was actually cricket. He was a bowler, because he was so tall he tried out athletic sports like running. He was really good at running so he focused on it, but sometimes he would play cricket with his friend’s sometimes.

This year at the 2012 London Olympics Bolt competed in the 100m race and the 200m as well. The funniest thing about him is that whenever he is getting ready to race he was the tallest. He won 6 gold medals in the 2008 olympics and this year’s olympics altogether. Bolt really inspires me because he is the fastest man in the world, I really don’t like running but when I watch him I feel like going to the Olympics.

I wonder if I would run in the Olympics next time?

My School

Learning at school is really hard and REALLY REALLY BORING. Sometimes it would be really fun if we played sport or play online games. My favourite part of school is home time because you can go back home and stay there until the next morning. The cool thing about my school is that we have mini laptops called netbooks. They are really different because netbooks are small but if you compare it to a macbook pro you can really see the difference.


My school gets a lot of visitors that come from all around New Zealand, the reason why they come to our school is because they want to know how we use netbooks and how we treat them like. Sometimes people come to our school just to talk to us and look at us use our netbooks. Soon we will get a new flash laptop which will be much more bigger and the internet will work faster than a netbook.


We do all our school work and home work on our netbooks. The sad thing is that only year 5 students and up are allowed to get one. The first time I got my netbook was last year, it was so cool and I was really excited. When we turned it on for the first time we counted down. A lot of people were really happy and my friends and I were too.


I wonder who I’m going to give my netbook to when I get my new one.

Olympic Games 2012

In the weekends I watched a lot of the Olympic sports mostly the men's racing. This morning I watched Nickolaus Willis race in the 100 meter race. Nick came third place, but at least it wasn't the final. Racing isn't my thing because I am to big and I suit something like shot-put or discus. My favourite Athletic sport is discus because last year I came 1st place.

Harold

Last week my class and I went to harold for the first time this term. For people who don’t know harold, harold is a giraffe which travels to schools around New Zealand and teach them about things that the children don’t know about. I was so excited to see harold because I hadn’t seen him since last year. Harold has a friend which is called Lynn. Lynn helps harold do things, Lynn is like Harold’s mother.


The stuff we learn in harold is things that we should put in our bodies and things we should not. We watched a video that was about a boy called Alex, it was about him making bad and good choices. He made a lot of bad choices in the start, but then he started to make very good choices in the end. I really enjoyed watching the video about Alex.


When we finished watching the video about Alex, we learnt about things that are good for us and bad that we should not use. I was really shocked when Lynn said that there was an Aussie Motorbike rider which drank eight red bull drinks. The Aussie motorbike rider drank so much that his heart stopped pumping. How horrible is that, so little children do never drink energy drinks because you might die or your heart might stop pumping.


I can’t wait to got to harold next year, I wish Harold stayed at our school.

Watching The Olympics


GUESS WHAT! The olympics have started and I am really excited. The Olympics are held in London and there are 300 events in 26 sports at the 2012 Olympics. So far I have seen Woman's weight lifting, Men and Woman's swimming, Rowing, and Gymnastics. My favorite sport is Rowing because New Zealand Came first. They are an undefeated team and a lot of rowers that race against them have changed their events because the kiwi boys are too good!!

The opening ceremony was the best that I had ever seen in my life. I wonder what the next Olympics is going to be like?!

Immersion Assembly




Today was the first day of school and I only wanted to go because I wanted to play on my netbook. When the bell rang I knew straight away that we were going to the hall for Immersion Assembly. I really like the first assembly of the term because some of the teachers dress up and they sometimes make movies.

The first item was given by Team 1. They made a video which was about Dick Quax and Yvonne Williams. They were both in the Olympics and both represented NZ. The cool thing was that Mrs George actually got to meet them. Yvonne competed in the long jump at the Olympics and Dick raced in the 5000 metres run. Dick got a silver medal, but Yvonne got a gold.

My favourite movie was Team 4’s because my teacher was in it and he wanted to hunt fish with his spear gun but the olympics offered him synchronised swimming instead. Miss Garden was going to swim for the Olympics and she said that she has been practicing in the bathtub. All the performances and movies were so cool to watch. I wonder what next term’s theme is going to be?

Art of a couch

I like this piece of art because it is colorful and their is a lot of cool patterns. Miss M and some of the room 15 kids made this last year. If you don't know what this art is, it is actually a couch, it look's pretty amazing,(DOES'NT IT LOOK SO COOOOOOL)

Picasso Art

This is my Picasso Art and it looks pretty cool. I finished it just in time for the school holidays.

Favourite Thing This Term

This is the last week of the term and I can't wait  until it's the school holidays because I have  worked enough. My favourite thing this term was rugby and league. Tomorrow I have a league tournament and we're going to Mt Smart. It is the Auckland Champs, we are going there because we won the eastern zone. It was a really fun day because I got two big tries and they were both a runaway.  I hope my team will be the Auckland Champions, I am really confident that my team is going to try their best to win.

P.E.P.A



Walking into the hall I felt nervous because when I looked around, I was the only BOY THERE. Soon, David and Jeffty came and I didn’t feel so nervous. That whole day since they were there to support my rap. It was kind of frightening when I performed in front of the P.E.P.A groups because I was the first one on stage. Happiness surrounded me as I walked off the stage. I felt really confident after I finished performing, I went and had a break and something to eat and drink.

P.E.P.A practice was nearly over and I was getting tired. When all of the other groups finished practicing it was time to rehearse. When I was rapping I felt really good because it was finally over and I got to go home. As I was walking out of the hall I knew I had to walk home because my Dad’s car wasn’t there.

Respect

Respect is a sign of kindness and taking charge , It is very important to my school. I sometimes don’t listen to my parents, But I do take charge after they finish telling me what to do. If they tell me to clean my room I would go and do it because no one else would do it for me, (I’M NOT A LITTLE CHILD).

I do listen to teachers because I don’t like to get into trouble. It is very awkward that I don’t listen to my parents but I listen to the teachers at my school. The reason why I listen to teachers is that , if they asks me to do a worksheet I would say yes because I would have to do it.

Art Alive


Picasso is a man who is a very famous artist. is a type of art which is very different from other art. Picasso paints and draws a lot of 3D art on the pathways and sometimes on the road. He even does funky art as well.

Our theme for school is Art Alive and that means we will be drawing a lot of things this term. We are going to be drawing things to do with school, artists and other cool stuff. I really like our school theme because I like drawing.

Swimming


As we walked out of school to the Glen Innes Pools I felt weird because the only time we’re allowed out of school grounds is after school to go home. When we got to the pools I was really excited. I wanted to do a big belly flop right into the pool!

The water was so warm when I slithered into the pool. It was awkward when I started swimming because I don’t usually swim with a board. But it didn't matter because to be honest I don’t really know how to swim! I’m not very confident at swimming because I always sink when I do Backstroke. Swimming is my favourite sport.

Around The World In 80 Days

I was watching a movie called around the world in 80 days. It is about a man called Mr Fogg, Lau Xing and a French lady traveling around the world in 80 days. I drew one of the ten tigers which is Lau Xing’s brother pouncing on his enemy. Lau Xing’s brother is holding on a rope, he’s trying to not get cut or hit by the bad guys. It is a really fun movie to watch. It’s funny, frustrating and sad at times!

Assembly


Assembly was very interesting this morning because a man called Robert was playing the bagpipes and another person was playing the drums. It was really funny when Robert was playing the bagpipes because he was playing the hokey pokey song. It was different from other assemblies because when we sang the National Anthem there was no guitar. The sad thing was that Mr Burt wasn’t there because he had a meeting out in west, but assembly was still as usual.

Pirate Story



Arr'h me matey For your information my name is Captian Smarty Pants . I have yellow pants with pink stripes . My jacket is black and I have an eye patch . I've got a parrot called Jackie , My Pirate ship is very big . I've got a wooden leg which is very easy to walk around with. A shark bit my leg off when I went fishing one day, anyway that was all I wanted to say.

I was looking for treasure on an island , it was very hard to find because a lot of animals would chase after me. As I was walking around the trees I saw another pirate , I what he’s doing here he’s looking for the treasure too. I was so angry , I knew that it was going to be very hard to find the treasure when they were around.

Finally I saw the booty, it was near the other pirates but they didn’t see it. It was the time for me to take all the jewlery , Sneaking to the chest the pirate saw me and started to chase me . I was getting so tired. I just turned around and started to have a sword fight. when he swung his sword at me I dodged it and ran to put the jewlery into my pocket. I ran so fast that I could see my boat, I quickly jumped in the ship and got away. I was very lucky to escape , that was one of my favourite adventures.

Dr. Ben Carson



Walking to the bus I felt excited to meet Dr. Ben Carson , even though I didn’t know him I still wanted to meet him. While we were on the bus the places we went past were very interesting. As we strolled out onto the grass we lined up and we waited for a very long time , finally we went inside to sit down. It was very noisy. There were a lot of different schools there, my school had the most children there. It was like there was a rugby game there.

As Dr. Ben Carson was telling us about his story, he told us that he was the dumbest in the class. His mum went around to houses so she can clean it and get money for her kids. She was very poor. The only thing that Ben and his brother do is watch TV . One day Ben’s mother went to the library and got books for her two son’s to read. When she got back home she turned off the TV and said, read this book and write an SA about it. Ben and his brother were very angry, but they did it any way.

Ben was reading a book about rocks, when he finished reading it he went to school the next day and there teacher held up a rock and said what is this called. As Ben looked around the classroom no one put there hand up. Since no one put there hand up Ben did, everyone looked at him and said this is going to be a good one, but Ben wasn’t scared, his answer was Obsidian. The teacher was shocked and said to him that is correct and that was the beginning of a new life.

Duffy Theater


Have you ever heard of Duffy Theater? Duffy Theater is a group of 3 people that do plays. Duffy loves to read, he has a little brother called Scruffy. The theme of there play was The Best Book In The World. As we sat down we were already sweating.

As they started the play Duffy introduced himself and his little brother Scruffy. My favorite part was when Scruffy was doing a Michael Jackson dance. We all laughed when Duffy and Scruffy did a robot dance together .

The story went on as Duffy and Scruffy was going through a garage sale. At last Duffy found The Best Book In The World. When he saw the book he just opened it and stood very still reading it. Scruffy wanted to play with him, but Duffy wasn't answering. So Scruffy went outside to play rugby with his cousin Manu .

It was a very fun and long story. It was the best Duffy Theater I’ve ever had.

Magic circus of Samoa Holidays


As we were waiting for the circus to open I got bored that I just started riding on my ripstick. I was so excited that I wanted to run inside but we had to wait for a while, at last we were in side.
While we sat down we just ate some food for a while.

It was dark and very spooky, I felt like I was locked up in jail. Finally two twins came out balancing on big bouncy balls. they started to balance and juggle. Seeing them on the stage I never knew that something like this was going to happen.

It was so fun and I had a great time.

All About Me


Hi, my name is Uili. I am 10 years old and I go to Pt England school. I have black hair and brown eyes. I am a full Samoan and I have three sisters and no brothers. My favorite subject at school is reading but the subject I hate is writing.

The movie I like most is Night At The Museum 2. I have a pet which is called Elfy and he is a little puppy. He is so small and chubby. Rugby is the sport I like to play because I played for my school last year. My favorite book is Geronimo Stilton

The food I love to eat is Fish & Chips. My favorite animal is a polar bear. The TV Program I watch is American Idol because I would always laugh at someone that doesn't know how to sing. The hobbies I like to do the most is spend time with my family and play on the computer.

In the future I would like to work on the road at night because that is where my dad works. My role model that has inspired me is my dad because he always helps me when I'm hurt.
