NO MISS WEST HAS VANISHED!!
Today Miss West has called in sick (NOT). Miss West is actually on a plane flying to Australia, she is so sick of teaching us 24\7. Anyways she’s probably going to see some koala bears.
After that she’s going to do some other fun things like…. Going on a cruise, meeting celebrities, going to the movies, going shopping with her friends and having the best day of her life (well, maybe not that much things but she is still probably having the best day of her life).
THAT’S NOT FAIR, ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS WORK WORK WORK AND WORK!! (if Miss West wasn’t my teacher i’ll probably tell Mr Burt what she has been doing!) she’s probably laughing at us because we’ve been having to do work ALL DAY!!!! JOKES ON YOU WE ARE ACTUALLY DOING FUN STUFF (MAYBE).
SO HAS THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED TO MISS WEST TO BE CONTINUED..........

We are designing a land boat for the purpose of racing other students and to help us learn more of other technology. Room 10 is designing a land boat. We will be working in our reading groups.
Me and my friend Chance are thinking of what useful things we could use for our land boats. These are some of our ideas: caps from water bottles for the wheels and to make it move, water bottles for the body and so the land boat won’t get wet and straws help the land boat move.
When we finish making our land boats we will be racing our boats across the concrete near our class. It is going to be lots FUN!!
Starting the day off was totally hilarious!!
Coming into school ready to do some learning, Miss West said that “we are going to do something exciting like a challenge” The class shouted in joy. Miss West showed us what we were going to do. she placed her hand on her shoulder, also placed a counter on her elbow and flicked it up in the air. She said use 1 hand to catch the counter when you flick it up in the air. So after Miss west stopped talking she demanded the class to form a circle outside.
The class went outside to form a circle. I walked outside and smelt the fresh air, I heard the birds tweeting happily and could see people from Pt England trying to do their work while we were playing outside. Miss west talked through the instructions one more time and we were off. We started off with one counter. If we flipped the counter in the air and caught the counter, we had to place another counter on top of the first one that we had.

What is that?…….
Coming into class the 2nd bell rang so we read our books from the library for 15 minutes. Then Miss called us to the mat and said “we will be doing something fun” we all shouted in joy!! Miss West told us what we will be doing which was going to be describing a product that has been invented, Miss West said just to be creative about the product (shoes). The shoes shine and shimmer. I think the shoes are made out of rubber, carbon fiber on the outside and cotton on the inside of the shoes. I think it will be comfortable to wear.
I think the shoes help people not to trip over themselves. I also think the shoes are used for bouncing up and down just for fun. How it work is you just jump like you're on a trampoline and if you trip, the shoes will repeat the same thing but it will be in reverse mode and it will help you stand up.
Time for the truth…….
The product is actually controlled by your smart phone. It counts up how many steps you take. It has self lacing laces which means it will tighten your shoes and will untighten your shoes for you. It heats up your shoes when you feet are feeling cold. It knows how old you are, how tall you are and how much your body weighs. This product is pretty cool
I think this product is a really cool thing that has been invented. It is also very interesting. I think my ideas were really cool maybe the inventors of this product should take some advice from me and make trampoline shoes. This would be very cool to bye but why spend you money on this product when you could do something like that on your phone but it is something very interesting.
Here is a website of what some other things the shoes can do.

Now that’s thinking!! Excitingly coming to school I walk into the breeze and waited for my friends. Then I saw 2 of my friends (Eden and Levonah) we hugged and said what we’ve been up to in the holidays. Once we hugged we went looking for our other two friends (Pisi and Chance).
Anyways we realised we should have hid from our friends so it would be a surprise. So we went into Miss King’s class to say hi. Then we saw Chance so we went behind the whiteboard to hide, but unfortunately she FOUND US!! All we needed to do was to hide from Pisi but she was walking around the school just like us and she spotted us is well (no!!!). So we walked around the school and finally the bell rang so we ran to class and got ready to go to immersion assembly.
Immersion assembly is when a beginning of a term is coming, also when we get to see what we will be learning about for the brand new term!! We also watch a little film that our team teachers made in the holidays. They make a movie about what we will be learning about for the rest of the term.
For this TERM which is term 2 we are going to be learning about, how technology has changed in the past and how it has changed from now. This term is going to be really FUN!!!

Yay, today we had a Easter egg HUNT!!
Yes I know it’s not Easter but we celebrated early. Today we had a big feast to celebrate Easter. If you wanted to know why we celebrate Easter check out my Easter presentation. Anyways talking about our big feast my Nanee and Pops came over followed by my 2 auntys 3 of my cousins and my uncle. I’ll get to the part where we had our Easter egg hunt but first I'll explain what happened.
First we waited for my aunty Hine to turn up, then a few moments later she walked through the door. After, mum told us to go upstairs and wait for my mum and dad to hide the Easter eggs and also wait for my cousin Peni to arrive. Moments later Peni had arrived then my Nanee and Pops had arrived after. So mum called us down to grab a plastic bag to start searching.
Now was the fun part, actually looking for the Easter eggs but we had some rules. 1. No pushing 2. No running and 3. You were only allowed to have 10 each. Then my mum shouted “3 2 1” and the search was on. The first place I looked was in my sisters room under her bed but unfortunately there was nothing. So I had a look on her window sill and 2 chocolate eggs fell out. I kept looking until I had 10.
After the hunt we had to wait for a while to have some food. Maybe 15-20 minuts dad called us to eat. These are some of the foods that we ate potato salad, steak, sausages and Lu. Lu is like some greens some meat followed by some coconut cream ( it’s really nice you should try it one day). Moments after dinner we had dessert which was trifle and ice cream. my mum's trifle is the best
Once we had finished our food my mum said that we were allowed to play hide and seek so we got ready for the game. After the game we finish the day off with a lovely and happy day. Thank-you Mum, Dad, Nanee Pops, aunties and uncle for making this wonderful day happen.
Happy early Easter everyoneStay tuned for more holiday blog posts.

Wow, on Wednesday lots of people went to Te Oro!!
Starting the morning off very excitingly we got our chrome book out and did our work for a little amount of time. Then all of a sudden we hear Miss West call us to the mat. So the class put their chrome books away and listened to Miss west. Miss west said that she would split the people who was not coming to Te Oro in a different class. As soon as she split the class we sat down at the porch to have morning tea.
Once we had our morning tea we went over to the hall and waited for the bus. Then the bus arrived (finally) so we hopped on and drove over to Te Oro. Inside Te Oro was These schools Somerville School, Tamaki Primary, Pt England, St Piers, Tamaki college, Glenbrae and more.
First we had a look at the top part of Te Oro. While we were going up the I saw these words going up the stairs, follow the dragon flies. I thought that was really cool and also thought that it was a project from the of the schools. Anyways we went upstairs and had a look at Somerville schools project. The Somerville schools project was about pests they had some objects what they could kill them with.
My favourite project was the St Piers project because it had some kind of mystery twist in it, they also explain how they got the pieces of bite marks on a piece of cardboard they also had pictures of what the bite might be like possums, rats and all kinds of bites.
After all that looking around we went back to the bus. After we got into class we played a very quit game. I LOVED IT SO MUCH!
Today is the day when all of a sudden comes to an end (NOOOOOO). Today was the last day of school. I will miss having fun with my friend and teachers, but that doesn't mean I will have fun next term. Stay updated for any holiday events.
I cant wait until next term but first im going to have a little fun.
See you next term

This is our researching about local children's perspective.
We researched what types of pollution there are and what kinds of pollution would make us children sick.
This is our piadeia practice task.
We got a piece of paper from Miss Langituipu.
On the 3 slide that page is what our paper looked like.
We had to rate why people should help that problem.
6 is what we should not help because its not a big of a deal
but 1 would be something that we would have to fix.

WOW WHAT AN AMAZING GAME!
This is our morning.
Starting the morning very silently, all of a sudden we hear Miss West. Miss West says that “we are going to play a game called untie the human knot” so she called us to the mat and we got straight into the game. Wait, I thought to myself. What is the human knot? Is it when we try to tie our arms together? Anyway, we went onto the mat and formed a circle.
Once we formed a circle Miss West put us in 3 groups. My number was 1. Once we were into our groups Miss West told us the instructions. These were the instructions. First put your right arm in the air and grab another person's arm. Once you do that you do the same with your left arm. Miss West shouts 1 2 3 then you try to untie the human knot without letting go of anyone's hand or forming into 2 groups.
Then she shouts “1 2 3” and all you could hear was laughter. I tried to say to Pisi to get under my arm but it was to hard. I couldn't even hear myself talking. We were the last ones who finished untying the human knot but we were in 2 groups! I was so mad at my teammates but we got another round and we kind of got the hang of it. I loved playing the human knot it was so much fun.

Ten years ago the world was always clean, but ten years after someone was polluting the earth and wasn’t looking after our environment. One day that person went over to the omaru creek and polluted the creek with detergent, paint and oil. Whenever she went somewhere everyone tried to catch her and her name, but only one person knew her name. It was her sister and the person who always pollutes is Lindy. The sisters name was Linzy and all this time Linzy keep Lindy's name a secret.
Sometime around the afternoon one day Lindy went to pollute the creek. While she was polluting the creek she heard a voice. That voice said “hey you look down” so Lindy looked down and saw a talking fish named kendal. The fish said “you better stop polluting this creek your killing all the fish” Lindy didn’t listen, but kendal was still talking he said that “you will regret this one day” but Lindy was too busy polluting.
Linzy came around and saw all the fish dead she said “this has gone too far” so she went home and had a little chat with her sister. Linzy said please stop polluting the creeks, Lindy said “why” her sister replied “because you killing all the fish, how would you feel if we didn’t have any food to eat but the fish that you killed” Lindy also replied “you're right I should stop” so she stopped polluting.
The next day the world was happy and clean. Linzy was so happy for Lindy to give up polluting. It felt good to be in a happy clean world.

This is a story about Maui and the giant fish. Maui wanted to get some fish to eat so he went out to sea and looked for the perfect spot to fish. Once he found his spot he threw his hook while holding onto the rope in the water. He waited and waited until he felt the hook pulling him so he pulled and pulled, capturing a giant fish which turned into New Zealand. It links because if we didn’t have enough food we would have to share the food out equally. If we didn’t have enough food to eat we would probably get really sick. If we also didn’t look after our plants the plants would die and we wouldn't be alive.
WOW!!! Last week on Wednesday (the first day of camp). I was so excited to get straight into the activities. Anyways, team 4 went camping on school grounds, and we had lots of activities. Some of the activities were kayaking, youthtown, get lost killerzone, roller skating, basketball and skating in the hall. We also had lots of songs especially at the pools.
My highlight was the Moana a Nui Kiwa Pools. We went to the Moana a Nui Kiwa pools on Friday which was the last day of camp. At the pools there were 2 pools outside. Outside there was also a bombing pool, a waterslide and a water park. I liked the water park best. My other highlight was killer zone with Mr Jacobson. In killer zone it was like a obstacle course but it was also all about speed. When we went to killer zone we played the chiefs. The chiefs leaders were Chastyti and Tupuia. I was in the group Sheriffs. The team leaders were Kurtus and Naomi. It was a pretty close game. I also loved all the fun in the hall like the roller skating and the basketball.
I recommend all the kids should come to this camp because it is really fun and you will have a great time. Not only that but you get to spend time with your friends. It a great time just to hang at school and have fun.
I would like to thank my Dad for staying overnight and making sure that everyone was ok. I would also like to thank helpers for looking after us and sorting out games and fun activities, Mr J for setting up kiler zone and get lost, Mr S for making this awesome camp happen, and Mr Burt for sorting kayaking and making this camp happen. Thank you also to the team leaders for keeping this an awesome camp.

Pt England School
Pt England School
Dear Mr Burt,
This term room 10 have been learning about native trees/bush. We have been wanting to plant some native trees or bushes. I have been wondering if we could plant some harakeke and the pohutukawa tree. We have some growing on the reserve and would want some on our school grounds. I want to plant the harakeke bush because I want to learn to weave. Also the harakeke bush grows really well in gardens and wet places including near the creek. The pohutukawa tree is beautiful and is one of the most famous trees in NZ. The pohutukawa tree will grow well in well drained soil. I think we need to build a water system so the soil has lots of water and will help the pohutukawa tree grow well.
We would want to do this at the end of term 1.
Here are some photos of where we would like to plant some.
These are some of the websites that help me think of ideas.

When I got outside I could hear cold breeze flowing past my ear and the birds chirping. I smell the beautiful fresh air. I could see the trees waving crazy from the wind. I could feel the the crunchy yellow and green grass. I can always taste the tiny rain drop dropping down from the sky. I did not know that Pt England is not an ecosanctuary.

Yesterday my mum, dad, sister, brother, uncle, aunty, cousins, pop, nanee and me went for a train ride. The train ride was in Waiuku. It took us about 30 mins to get to there. Along the way I got tired so I went for a nap. By the time I woke up we were at Waiuku. The train station is called Glen Brook Vintage railway. When we got there we all looked around.
We saw all kind of things like trains of course, coal, dirt, train rails, a playground, a face painting station, and a bakery. I was so amazed to see all of the cool things including the hot steam coming out from the train I even got my face painted and my sister as well. 5 mins looking around but while we were looking we heard this really loud noise (TOOT TOOT!)
I got a shock so did my sister. Anyways we all knew the train was coming so we ran to the train. The train was still moving but all of us decided to go on the other side of the train. As soon as we got on the train it was quite full but we still got to sit down. We were in the back of the train, all though it was really really loud I didn't mind it.
Once we got on, there were a lot of animals like horses, sheep's, cows, and also two lamas. Yesterday was really sunny so we needed a little shade. After maybe about 15 min of riding this train the ride just stops. Then I hear "we are going back around" and I knew that we were going to be at the front so I said to myself "NO" because when ever I hear TOOT TOOT! my ears was ringing so it would have been louder and sure enough it was.
As soon as the lead train came to our side there was water spraying on me, steam coming from the train and the really loud noise (TOOT TOOT!). It took a while to get us going but still I didn't mind. Then 30 mins came around and we stopped, we stopped because the conductors wanted a break so we all just had a look around. Once we finished looking around we tried to run at the front of the train but while we were looking I heard dad saying to me that we have changed seats we were going to sit at the back train, we were still on the out side of the train but it was just a little different (we had a roof).
We took off, again there was beautiful views of mountains river animals it was just amazing. When we got back I said "thank-you for letting us come here and to have an awesome time we stayed for a little while. Everyone had an awesome time, but unfortunately we had to go back home. So we went back home to have lunch, and lunch was really yum. Yesterday was a great day to spend with my family before we all go back to school.

Hey blog viewers this is my last day of blogging for the SLJ I will be missing to blog these school holidays. School is about to start again for a new year. Yay! Imagine that I walked into my classroom and my teacher asked me to stand up in front of the class and talk about the country that I visited. here are the options of what I would do.
- Post a short video clip of myself talking about the country that I visited and the things that I learned (1 – 2 minutes)
- Type out what I would say to the class if I had 1 – 2 minutes to speak.
I would share to the class a 1-2 min speak: That I had a wonderful time at Australia, I’ve learnt amazing facts about their country like the capital is Canberra. I also enjoyed seeing the outstanding sights such as the beautiful Great Barrier Reef and I wouldn't mind traveling back to Australia once more time. I also liked seeing and learning about the koalas and dingos. My favourite things about visiting the country was mostly all of it like going to see the beautiful Great Barrier Reef, eating the famous foods, learning about all the animals in the country and blogging all about the amazing things in this country.
After four full weeks of planning and travelling, I am now safely back in New Zealand. I have now had some time to relax and to reflect on my experiences. What are two or more things that I have learned from the travels?
Here are my answers:
1. One thing that I have learnt from traveling is that you need to know which airline you're going on. Make sure you pay good attention because you might miss your plane, .Australia is surrounded by the indian and the pacific oceans, Australia is the world's 6th largest country by area, and the last one would be to always plan everything before you start your trip, for example how much money you would need and also where you would like to go while you are at the country that you are going to.
My trip has now come to an end and it’s time to fly back to New Zealand. As I board the airplane, I start to think about all of the people who will be waiting to pick me up from the airport in Auckland and I am very excited.
Imagine that I have just arrived at the airport in Auckland. My whole family is there to welcome me. They can’t wait to hear all about my trip! I decide that I’ll go home and have a special meal together to celebrate my return. My mum offers to make me anything that I would like to eat. If it was Rachel, she would ask for homemade hamburgers with ketchup, American-style mustard, onions, tomato and lettuce; Cajun-style wedges with tomato sauce and Greek salad with cherry tomatoes and lots of feta cheese. For dessert she would ask for vanilla cake with chocolate icing and Neapolitan ice cream.
This is what I would eat, I would eat cheese pasta and mini mince and cheese pies. For dessert I would have vanilla ice cream and a raspberry cheesecake. The reason why I have picked these food because these food are my favourite things to eat
