New Zealand Infomation

New Zealand is a main country in the South Pacific Ocean. It has 3 main Islands which are North Island, South Island and Stewart Island. The Maori name of New Zealand is Aotearoa which translates to The Land of the Long White Cloud. The cities with the largest population in New Zealand are, Auckland (1,354,900 residents), Wellington (473, 700 residents) and Christchurch (376, 300). There are three official languages which are English, Te Reo Maori and New Zealand sign Languages.

The first European to make it with his crew to New Zealand was Captain James Cook. He was born in Britain. First James Cook Circumnavigated New Zealand. After Cook finished his journey he wanted to call it New Zealand and make it his. Suddenly there were Maori’s and they thought they were the first to make it to New Zealand. This was a bad situation so it turned out to be a war. In 1840 6th February there was a treaty held between the British and the Maori to settle the war.

One News!

On Tuesday 23rd August our class had the opportunity to be on One News! My mind was going crazy as they were recording. This was after Lunch in our classroom.
As the lady was talking I moved to another chair. As they left our class my concentration went out of my mind and I went all funny. The lady said that Room 16 would be on One News. I was so amazed and excited. When I went home I didn't have enough time to watch it at 6:00 o'clock.

Taking Pictures

I love to take pictures of myself even with a celebrity. COOL! Sometimes I love taking pictures with a friend, or putting my face onto a celebrity! Funny!

Visiting Harold

On Monday the 8th of August we went to visit Harold at the Life Education Caravan. Our whole class was very excited. First thing that we had to do was to take our shoes off and put them under the Caravan so they wouldn't get wet from the horrible weather!

Finally it was time to go into the caravan. I was very excited! Lynn put us into four rows. Then it was time to relax and settle down. We had a little talk to Harold and he asked politely if we could do his homework, because it was a little hard for him to do. So we said, “Yes." We learned all about our body. Tam told us about livers and what it does for us in our body. Did you know that the liver is the size of a small watermelon and has over 500 jobs to do? The liver sorts the food and stores up the Minerals and Vitamins.

When we were talking about our body we heard a strange noise and we looked up and there were lights shinning bright. After that we looked to the right and saw a brain talking to us about where our food goes in our body. Wow that was cool!

Finally it was time to go and we were so sad because we wanted to stay for longer but we couldn’t because it was morning tea time. I can’t wait to go back on Friday!

Immersion Assembly Term 3

Another day for school Hooray! While waiting for school at home I hardly couldn't wait! As I came to school I was excited to see my friends. When school started the whole school went to the hall but room 18, 19, 20, 21 and 22 walked down to Tamaki College for their Tech time. As we went inside the hall we were given a ticket. I was wondering what it was when suddenly Mr burt said that we could use it to buy a treat like a Drink, chips or hot chips and sausages! When the show began we had to watch the teachers dance. At the end we were to that our topic was called 'Keep Your Eye On The Ball'.

My favourite highlight was when the teachers in team 4 got to choose a player so they could feed the teachers weet-bix. Did you know that the All Black players eat 10 Weet-Bix, 2 Litres of milk and a Dozen pieces of toast a Day? I'm not sure if that right!

My Favorite Holiday Highlight!

My favourite highlight from my holiday is when we went to the movies, to celebrate my cousins 4th birthday. She was very excited. We took a train to Sylvia Park. On our way there my cousin said to my Dad, “It is my birthday!” He replied, “Your birthday is actually on Friday”. Finally we were at Sylvia Park. It was very cold but then I was sprinting to get warm and hot. When we went inside it was like a concert or a party. We were walking and I saw so many fun activity’s. After that we went inside the movies and got some tickets to watch Cars 2 but the theatre was full and packed with people, so we had to get some tickets to watch Kung Fu Panda 2.

When we finished getting some tickets we went to valley girls because my mum wanted to see her cousin who's name is Jessica. When we finished talking to her we went and got some food to eat in the movie. As we were walking along we were late. So, we had to rush because my Dad forgot to tell us what time it was. As we got in the theatre the ads had already started. After the ads were finished the movie started to play. The highlight in Kung Fu Panda 2 that I liked was when he was onto a roof and he was speaking in a language which no-one could understand. As he was going down this statue called the fire breathing dragon, which is a very powerful object that can fire hot rocks that will turn into lava.

After the movie finished we all went back to Glen Innes for a well deserved evening off!
