What a Disaster

WALT: Summarise information in a text
 Here in my presentation I had to answer these questions about what happens to the Rena. Did you know that birds can die because when they look for food in the water the oil can go on their skin and infect their skin. We had to create a movie which you will see here. The movie is breaking news, that breaking news is about what happens to the Rena and we got that information from an article called What a disaster.

Decimals 2

WALT: Order whole numbers and decimals numbers

this presentation was very pretty easy but the second to last card was very hard because I had to form the numbers from largest to smallest but I did it the other way around so then I had to do it again.


Walt: Read and write decimals

As you can see I am learning how to work out decimals it was so hard until I tried and tried hard. I got help from my lovely teacher Ms. Tapuke. It was hard because I thought my teacher said on slide 4 to write for example 5.7 five point seven but what she actually said was to write five ones and seven tenths.

My Writing Test

Have you been to the netball courts before? If you haven’t you should go and check it out, It is so amazing I love going to the netball courts. Wait a minute where are my manners  I forgot to introduce myself, Hi my name is Kerstein and I am a year 7 student at Pt England School. I am going to tell you about where my special place is,  as I already said the netball courts.

It is so special because I love to watch and play at the netball courts, I sometimes watch netball on the television but sometimes  I watch my sisters play at the netball courts I play netball to but I only watch when I am on the sideline.

I started playing at the netball courts in year 4 with Mr Jacobsen he was the best coach I’ve ever had he was my coach from Year 4 to year 6 this year he couldn’t be our coach he had to coach another team which was the year 5 princesses. I bet that they will love him.

Last year in 2016 I played in a team called Patriots my coach was Mr Jacobsen again but other people call him Garth, We weren’t allowed to call him Garth we had to name him by his last name. Anyway he was my coach and last year we were in Grade A Section 2 I did not know if we came 1st or second I was very confused. But in 2015 I already knew that we came first because all Mr Jacobsen said was that we came first.

The netball courts are my favourite and special place ever. It's the best place ever I am going to the netball courts again this year.

The Poly highlights

On Thursday the 16th of March, The whole of Team 5 went to Polyfest in Manukau. We had to sit and wait for the other schools and when the last school came we started to sing songs like our new Maori song “Hutia” and the song “We know the way” in the movie moana. When we finished the songs we met these lovely people from Aorere College. Their were six of them one in each class, One of those lovely people’s names were Sabrina she was our tour guide for polyfest.

The first place we went to was the NZ police station they were talking to us about what they do, They also said that they have guns but they dont use them he also said their main focus they look at is comunication. One of our students asked if they use a tazer gun but  they said no.

After that we went to the ASB stand and inside was these digtal poi’s here is the LINK to the video of people doing the digital poi. It was very cool.

Later on we got split into groups my mum had a group and in that group was Aneelis, Sheales, Angel, Alisha and ME. We went almost every where we went to get a moko and we got free smothies.

After that we all went back to school, Some people were so tired they fell asleep in the bus. When we got to school we sang more songs and then we all went home.

Why people need to drink water?

Sometimes I ask myself, Why is water so important? And my answer I kept on hearing was to keep everyone alive but i’m pretty sure that's not all. Water can also keep our body pure and clean.

Did you know that water helps to get almost all of the carbon dioxide out of your body. When you breath out all the carbon dioxide comes out all because you have drunk water. Isn’t that amazing.

Eventually, people use water to clean stuff, like yourself and some dirty laundry there’s loads of things water can clean. Now I think i’m forgetting something that’s right did you know that water can Evaporate.

Evaporate means when ice can turn into liquid then it water vapours. Have you been at a beach? Before because if you have you have just done Evaporation. So when you dry up the water just floats into the air then they gather altogether next it turns into a cloud that’s called Condensation then when rain comes down that’s called Precipitation.

Finally I’m finish talking you guys might be think wow she writes for long well it alright well sometimes I write short paragraphs, So where was I that’s write. So did you like my writing about the water cycle well I hope you did thanks for reading.

WALT - Plan for a  piece of explanation writing.
                  - Use the' Title-Introduction-Information-Conclusion (TIIC)

Immersion Assembly

Immersion Assembly

Monday morning it was a bright and sunny day. We had an immersion assembly, every team had to either have a video or a skit made by the teachers. The video and the skits needs to be about what they are learning or doing in term 2.

First team one made a video. it’s about these four beautiful teacher in team one. They wanted to learn about matariki so they were thinking about what they should do. The first thing in their mind was food lots and lots of food, The second thing was kites and the other teachers thought that it was a great idea. So then they went off to make some kites.  Later on they finished making their kites one was yellow, one was orange and one was even made from flax, plus the last one was made of lollie wrapers that took forever because Mrs Hockley was eating the candy.

The next day they went to go and fly their kites but their was no wind so they tried running with their kites, they even tried cycling with their kites the last thing they tried was sliding down the slide with their kites. Their was no use but the next day the wind crept into the school gates and the teachers kites were moving. So then the teachers kites were flying so high. The teachers were so happy. They told us they are going to be making kites and also flying kites for Matariki.
Next was team two they first explained to us that they were doing the same thing as team one. But she also explained that team two will be going to the Auckland Musem during the term they are going to be learning how to make kites they are also going to be flying kites and also learning about Matariki

After Team two was Team three. They are also going to be doing the same thing but finally something diffrent Team four said they are going to be thinking about what should they do and one of the teachers said that they should make this car thing but the others dd not agree and one of them said “ I wonder what technolgy they used before the paikea’s came “ then one of the teachers said “ Yeah” So they are learning about “what technology they used before the paikea’s came?”

For the final event Team five they were doing a skit and its about bob the builder and Mr Wiseman is bob and Mrs Judd was his pretend wife she said “ there is a big hole” and Bob said “ Barrie the kids” and Mrs Judd said “ Mrs Tele’a wouldn’t like it” so he said to do a garden to block the hole. It was so amazing I wanted it to repeat it again it was so amazing.

Thanks for reading hope you like it.
