One News Pt England

The door slid and squeaked like a squriel as Mrs Nua walked in asking us if we wanted to go on the TV One News. Our class were screaming so much because we all wanted to go on tv. We said "yes" and Mrs Nua went to tell Mr Burt. A lady walked into our class room with a news reporter. She sat down next to Billy by our iMacs. She said her lines while the camera lady was filming her. She was practicing her lines over and over. It was funny because Jesiah and I thought she was talking to herself. The camera lady said "are you ready?" and the reporter said "yes", so she said her line. After that she said it a couple more times just to see if she had the right one. It was finished and Mr Burt asked what channel and time it was going to be on. The reporter said its on TV One News, the best channel ever. Most of us heard so we were going to watch it at six o'clock on TV One.
Waiting nervously for the bell to ring for morning tea because the Hammers want to play rugby at Hamlin park. Yah I said to myself the bell went and Mr S sorted out our class while he takes us to rugby with Mr Marks's team the under's. Mr S said to Mr Jacobson that is driving the van I will take some of our boys, so I said can I come with you and he said yes. I got my jersey and told every one in my team to touch it for good luck. After every one finished touching it I went into the toilets and got changed into my gear. After that we sat down and Mr J said a prayer so that we will be safe and have fun. Jumping into Mr S's flash car and of we go. Mr S wanted to show respect to Mr J by driving slowly behind him. He disapeared and we didnt no where he was so we just went the way Mr S knows how to get to the field. We turned into the road and saw the van but the boys werent in there. Going into the park we saw the boys and Mr s was tooting away. We all grabed some gears out of the boot and jogged down the hill to the field. The field was so nice. The unders came with Mr marks and Mr J. With the help of the unders we put all of our bags in the middle of each field to keep our gear . I went and grabbed my mouth gaurd out of my bag and we warmed up. The subs sat down and we done kick of possition's. Then the fowards and the backs split up and practiced our game plan. It was time to play and the whistle blew and we chased the ball because we kicked it.

New Zealand

New Zealand is a place that has many people of different cultures. New Zealand was named after the first Polynesians that came in their waka. They named it Aotearoa that translates into The Land of the Long White Cloud. They named it this because the first thing they saw was a large cloud covering New Zealand. The treaty of Waitangi was signed in February the 6th 1840. It was signed to bring peace between the Maori tribes and the British settlers who were fighting over the land. It was signed by Maori and the British and some Maori put there moko on the treaty instead of a signature. No other countries have the treaty of Waitangi.

We have four main islands. They are North Island, South Island, Stewart Island and Chatham Islands. Our main cities are Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. Wellington is our capital city that is well known of the Parliament and the beehive . Wellington is well known because the prime minister lives there .The main languages we speak are Te Reo Maori, English and New Zealand sign language. It is the third populous place in New Zealand

We want to see heaps of Rugby World Cup visitors to come and enjoy the rugby games in Auckland! Please Come visit us at Pt England School!

At the Life Education Caravan

When we got to the education bus we took off our shoes and lined up tallest to shortest. Walking on the shiny stairs going into the bus I told Jesiah to come by me. He was sitting next to me in a row of four.
When I got in it smelt very very nice. Lynn asked us to line up in fours. The first thing we did was to talk to Harold. When he first got out he was staring at the girls and tried to ask them out on a date! He wanted us to do his homework for him. We said it’s all right and we did half for him. He asked if he could use our library and we talked about a few rules.

Lynn said its time for him to go so we said bye to Harold and it was time to learn. It was a bit obvious what we were going to learn about in the bus because there were a couple of body hints. After a few short minutes we had already finished the first task which was to talk about what healthy food we need to full up our body.

Kung Fu Panda 2

On the way to the Hoyt's movies, I asked my Nan if she could take us to MacDonald's to have something to eat before we watched KUNG FU PANDA 2. Mm munching on my YUM Big Mac combo with sprite for my drink. I sprinkled some salt over my chips to give it extra taste. We left drinking a banana milkshake. I could tell it was yum because our car smelt like banana milkshake. We were early so we went to get our tickets for the best seats. We got our goodies when we went into the cinema.

Waiting in the long line I tried to push in but I couldn't because there were way to many people. With three more families in front of us I got butterflies because I couldn't wait. I knew it was going to be fun because I had seen some ads of it at home. "Yay," I said walking to cinema 2. Walking in I saw people jumping around on our seat. I asked them if they could move so we could sit down and relax. The lights turned of and every one went crazy.
