My movie recommendation.

Good morning and good afternoon people around the world last week at St Patrick school and other schools went to the film festival. My favourite movie was named Happiness Infection because in the film the people are sad but there are three happy Tongan clowns who make the movie change into something very funny.

Our trip to the stone cottage

                                      Stone cottage 

 

Yesterday St Patrick’s went to the stone cottage across the road. We had to go at 10 o’ clock in the morning and we met three people there whose names are Terry, Patrick and Josephine. I didn’t really know what to expect but it was very interesting when they started to tell the story about the cottage and who lived in it.

 Inside the stone cottage there were four dolls, three baby dolls and one human sized doll. There was one in the kitchen, one in the master bedroom, one in a little crib upstairs and one in the kid’s bedroom. They all looked cute.

The old utilities they used were a pot to pee or poop in and then the women would go outside and dig a hole and pour it in. And when the men drank tea which they loved doing, they had a special cup that would stop their moustaches from getting wet!!

After some time we had a little bit of time to have a class picture so we lined up. We all smiled happily so then we went back to school and at the end everyone was happy.

My cycling experience

On Monday two instructors named Kate and Kyla came to our school to teach us how to cycle safely. We had to split into two groups. The people who knew how to cycle went with Kyla and the people who did not know how to cycle went with Kate. The people who went with Kate went on a little ramp or a slope. When they cycle the bikes down the slope or the little ramp they go down fast!.

Before everything we had to check our bikes to see if they were safe to ride. We had to check the air in the bike’s tyres and the brakes. Then we had to go to check the chain and the controls and we had to drop the bike to see if anything falls off. After morning tea Kate went to the bottom court until lunch time. We stopped cycling and played one last game before they left for today.

My favourite part of cycling is when I went down the slope and the little ramp confidently. In the end everyone was tired but very happy we had fun learning new skills.

 

My future footprint

Today room 6 had to write something that we were going to be when we grow up. I decided to be a youtuber when I grow up and I want to teach everyone to never give up. In everything like sports and drawing. Have you ever given up or feel like you can’t keep going? What keeps you motivated?

 

Characterisation of Fingerbone Bill and Storm Boy

I am aged and wizened and I adore Storm Boy as if he was my own kid. I like to educate people. Instead of Storm Boy my kid, Storm Boy and I are just best friends
I am …………………Fingerbone Bill

I am a young boy with a hideaway dad and a best friend named Fingerbone Bill. I am not petrified of storms and all the fish are my friends. I love being by myself on the beach looking for shells. Some people might think I am lonely or should be at school, but this is the only place I know and want to live in.

I am………..Storm Boy

What does your digital footprint say about you?

Today Room 6  learned to post positive things  about what we read on other people’s profiles. Also we learned that we have to make informed guesses about the information that others share.                                                                                                                                                         

Our Ki o rahi tournament

Yesterday room 6 room 7 and room 8 were going to play Ki o Rahi in our first ever tournament. We played in our houses and we have four colors – red for Rata, green for Kauri, blue for Rimu and yellow for Totara. I am in Rata and I brought me PE gear from home.

Coach Trey was the ref and he was really good because he kept the games moving. I was lucky to play two games. The weather was really sunny and warm and we were even happy when we sat out on the wall and watched others play. The winning house was Kauri. Everyone played against everyone and I felt bad for my friend Ramsey because he only got to play one game.

I saw some awesome players and some were in room 6 and room 7 and room 8.  It was a great competition.
