The Hoku le'a and hikianalia Powhiri

On Wednesday 25th of March, we were getting ready to go down to Pt England beach to see the 2 waka ‘s come. We had lined up and Mr Burt was praying then the little kids went and so on.

Soon our turn came and we went to the beach but the grass was wet, so we had to take the path. So we started to walk out of the hall and headed through the main gate towards the beach. While we were walking towards the beach I saw lots of other school come to the beach.

After walking for 4 minutes we arrived at the beach and went to sit down in our area. We sat on the wet grass waiting for two waka’s to come. But when we got there one, of the waka’s was already there. After a minute or two the other waka came so we standed up, then mini boat went out and the people on the waka got on the waka and came to shore.  

Afterwards all the schools from manaiakalani sang a few songs. My Favourite part was when the people form the waka sang there song. The people that came came out of the waka were Hawaii people.

Camp Recount

    Walt : Organise my ideas into paragraph and link them together.

Have you ever camped on a School field ?
Because the year 5 and 6s have camped at School. If you don’t know what camping on a school Field is then read on to find out. Read my next paragraph.

About Camp :
Camp is for three days.On the first and second day we have activities. On the last day we went  Mangere pools for the whole day and went home at three o'clock.On the first night we got to watch a funny and sad movie, it was mostly funny. Every year two days before camp the teachers let us know what groups we are in. Our Camp leader ‘s were : Zackariah and Yvonne. They are the ones who made our Chant.

Highlight One :  
My First favourite highlight was top town with Mr Jacobson. But Mr Jacobson said that it wasn’t called top town it was called killer Zone. In Killzone is was Cool because of all the miniature activity in it. My favourite part in it was when we had to fill the Water balloons and chuck them at the other team. When we went to fill the water ballons, Me, Ukura and Roimata went to the Girls’ toilets filled some of the  water balloons but in the water didn’t go in the balloon it went on Me and Ukura.

Highlight Two :
My  favourite highlight was :
Basketball. Basketball, Rollerblading and Table tennis were all held in the hall where we started camp. The First thing we did when we got there was pratice our performance for the Concert on thursday night. After praticing our performance we got to have fun. The First thing I did after pratice was table tennis. It was cool and fun.

Conclusion :
I can’t wait until next Camp. Cause it’s going to be totally Awesome. Some of the Activities that I’m looking forward to are Kayaking, Killzone, Get Lost, Cooking and Basketball.  

Our Instructions were to write a recount about your favourite experiences on camp. We had to write our introduction using these three sentence types : 1 Simple sentence, 1 Question and 1 complex sentence. Our 1st body paragraph had to tell our reader all about the detail of camp, then our 2nd and 3rd body paragraph had to be about on highlight per paragraph.

Today I visited Gloria's blog. Gloria could pretty soon explode with excitement.
What Gloria was looking forward to the most was going to the lagoon. 
Swimming was one of the things Gloria liked to do, so that why Gloria was excited to go to he Lagoon.
Camp isn't as exciting as it sounds, Gloria was actually quite worried about the camp concert. Gloria was not really a fan of performing.Being a good Camp leader is what Gloria needed to be, taking care of her team and being responsible too.

Newspaper tower challenga

The Newspaper Challenge

WALT: Write a detailed introduction with hook and orientation.

Well this morning I thought it was just going to be a normal day then all of a sudden my teacher Mr Goodwin tells us to put our net books away. I was confused weren't we supposed to be doing our writing? Find out by reading along what happened.

So I finally found out what we were doing, we were having a newspaper challenge I was excited. Our literacy teacher handed out our materials like masking tape, scissors, and newspaper but the hard thing was that we only had 8 minutes to build a tall tower out of newspaper I thought it would be impossible. If we won the challenge we would get a prize and you had to only be in a group of 5 or 4.

The 8 minutes had started and I was startled in fact our whole team was our team all helped out we were sticking things together, cutting things and obviously making things. During the 8 minutes my team was feeling really good then all of a sudden our teacher calls out 3 minutes left, we were putting the finishing touches together it looked pretty good but were we safe. There were only ⅖ teams that had actually finished my team (Team Talita) and (Team Rosalina) our teacher came over to Rosalina’s team first I thought our team had lost their measurements came out at 57.5 and then it was our turn our came out at 58 we had won.

When our team won I was surprised and happy, our team had won. I actually learnt something it was that teamwork can be the easiest solution to making someone else happy. It was a good feeling knowing that we won as a team.

Task description: This is my recount about the newspaper challenge My task was to write a recount about the newspaper challenge we had in class, with detail and orientation. I learnt that teamwork can unlock anything and anywhere.
