Malamahonua ceromony

Today in the morning our school and all the other Manaiakalani Schools went to the Pt England reserve. Did you know it was the Hokulea that came in the morning so  we went over to them and 2,000 kids from all the  Manaiakalani schools had to welcome them to Pt England by singing a chant. Did you know that The Hokulea came from hawaii So they traveled 40,000 miles That has been a long way. After we sang the chant 8 times and then they said some speeches and we sang some maori songs. And then they had more speeches after our Waiatas. The last thing we did was shake hands and said welcome.

Year 5&6 camp 2015 25 anniversary

YEAR 5 & 6 camp

Did you know that last week We had our Year 5 and 6 camp,It was awesome. Year 5 and 6 camp happens every year where every kids gets an opportunity  to sleep with their friends in a small tent. Have you ever gone on a school camp with your classmates?

At the Year 5 and 6 camp all the parent helpers and cooks were ready. We went for 3 days and 2 nights in the school field, In our tent we have 3 people, I had slept with Charles and Martin in the tent village. Camp is to help kids be responsible with their stuff and being brave to do everything.
Camp is fun you should realy go camp.!

My first highlight was kayaking  with my friend his name was Lomio-Lee Gatua me and him buddied up and went kayaking. But first we had to learn how kayak before we could even ride a kayak. So Mrs Garden told us some tips she said to paddle you have to keep your right and left hand as you are holding a motorbike handle, then she put life jackets on us and we partnered up with a person and kayaked we also had boundaries.

My second highlight  at camp was going to the Mangere pools on the last day, it was exciting. But first we had to clean our tent, pack our stuff, eat our breakfast, play some sport then we went on the bus to Mangare pools. When we got to Mangere pools we sat down and the teacher gave us fruit and we sang some mihis, after we went in to the poolside and had our morning tea I was full then we had to get changed into our togs and we swam. After swimming the whole day we were all tired we sat on the bus and we all had a good time swimming.

I think camp is for everyone. It is fun and exciting when you do a lot of activities at camp. 2468 who do we appreciate Not the king not the queen it's all about the true crew.

Mr Goodwin told us to write about our camp. So what me and my classmates did was we had write a detailed recount with hook and orientation. In our recount we had to write a Introduction, 1 paragraph was to write evry detail about camp. In the second paragraph we had to write about our first highlight. In our 3 paragraph we had to write about our second highlight. and last but not least our conclusion about how you felt about camp and what it means for the future.

Newspaper tower

WALT write a detailed introduction with hook
Guess what, today Mr Goodwin told us to make a  newspaper tower he said the one with the longest tower will get a prize . I was nervous because the  tower had to be tall and stand by itself I wanted the prize. Has Your teacher ever told you to make a paper Tower  before

First what  we did was get into our literacy class then Mr Goodwin said “ today your challenge  is to make a paper tower with in”. So What we did was get 5 people in a group. The Materials needed were a scissor, 5 and a ½ sheets of paper and a little bit of duct tape.

Making time, What we did first was get the paper and roll it up then I did was get duct tape and stick it on the rolled paper. After that we put the rolled Newspaper it inside another rolled newspaper. After  A  wild we started to joint the rolls altogether then it broke, I was panicking then we only had 15 seconds to finish it off. Mr Goodwin said “ times up”.

After a wild it was judging time My group  lost and another group lost as well. We were left with two teams, Rosalina  and cameo’s team were left Mr Goodwin not tell so one person went and got a ruler and measured it and cameos team one.

I think doing challenges are fun like making a paper tower and making chicken noodles. Doing challenges help you writ more story with imagination.
