A Hot Game Of Netball

For the first time at the beginning of the year we had lessons from a instructor Liz from the ATM Netball Courts. She came to our school to help us learn more about netball. It was going to be a great opportunity because I love the sport netball and I can use the skills when I am in action at the netball courts. I have good experience because I have been playing since I was in year 4. I have always wanted to play as a professional and I am going to follow that dream.

For a couple of weeks now,  Room 21 has been going to netball to learn techniques so we can become more professional, well only the girls. I was really excited but on the other hand it was an incredibly hot day. It was really hot. Nobody wanted to play at all, so instead we gave it a try. We learnt how to intercept, defend and attack. We also played a quick game called Netball tag, the aim of the game is to get as many members of the other team.

It was coming to a end of our fun because we were heading back to our class. It was going to be an exhausting walk after playing a fast game in the hot sun. I LOVE NETBALL!

Te Tiriti O Waitangi (Treaty of Waitangi)

In the early 1840’s there was a treaty that was agreed and signed between the Maori and the Pakeha. Lieutenant William Hobson and former British resident James Busby, invited up the Maori chiefs starting with Hone Heke. Each signing was followed by a handshake and greeting from Hobson: He iwi tahi tatou (we are now one people).

For months in the 1840’s the treaty was circulated around the country for the Maori chiefs to sign. Involved in the treaty, was the 3p’s. They meant Protection for their land. Partnership to bring friendship between the Maori and the Pakeha and last but not least Participation to bring peace to the nation. It was Queen Victoria’s responsibility to bring peace to the people at Waitangi, the Bay of Islands and to bring the Maori’s and Pakeha’s together.

About 40 chiefs signed the Treaty of Waitangi in the Bay of Island in the 1840’s. By the end of the year, nearly 500 other Maori, including 13 women, had put their names or a moko on the Treaty. Others disagreed to not at all to sign the Treaty.

My Creative Pie Graph....

Room 21 has been learning about graphs and statistics and this is my pie graph that I created on a website. My pie graph is not the only graph. There are some other graphs like a bar graph, X Y graph, steam and leaf graph and a line graph. Graphs are really good to use to update data and see what is the most likely thing and what the most hated.

Captain Underpants and the Perilous Plot of Professor Poopyants!

In the weekends I have been Reading and Writing to help learn and to build my learning skills. The book I read was called Captain Underpants and the Perilous Plot of Professor PoopyPants it had allot of interesting words and action. Finally I finished the book, a thought came to my mind it was writing about the book, and this is how it began.

In the story are two main charters and there names are Harold and George they didn't like there teacher Mr Krupp there old mean principle because he thinks that George and Harold are B.A.D. One day George and Harold hypnotized Mr Krupp and command him to take his pants and were a cape and called him Captain Underpants and has super power from the juice that George and Harold stole from aliens. When ever Mr Krupp hares a SNAP! he becomes you know Captain Under ware and if a person pours water on his head he turns back into old mean Mr Krupp.

Finishing the book made me more interested of reading more books about Captain Underpants and know I am a big fan of Captain Underpants and the Perilous Plot of Professor PoopyPants By Dav Pilkey.

Christmas Day!!!

Yay! I shouted, because my family and I were going Christmas shopping. During Christmas shopping I get what ever I want and the best part is we get money from my parents and also buy a present for someone. We arrived at Sylvia Park, after spending minutes in Sylvia we drove off to Pakuranga. I jumped out of the van and walked to the shopping mall, I was really hungry so my mum gave me $10 to buy me Burger King (Big Meal).

While my mum and I were walking around we saw the 123 shop, we entered the store. I knew this was a perfect store for a gift, a ran to the back of the shop were the toys were and grabbed a gun. After a while my mum grabbed her Burger King and we left the mall, when we arrived at home I sneaked into my room and hid his present. Next morning I woke up to a fresh smell of food on the table. As soon as I smelt the air I ran to the kitchen and sitting on the table was a cooked pig, Grape Wine and also two fizzy drinks.

We ate so much we couldn't eat no more after our delicious feast. after awhile my sister’s, little brother and I tip toed to the room and grabbed the presents we rushed threw the kitchen door and shouted “Merry Christmas!”. I gently gave my little brother Christmas gift, he happily teared the wrapping paper and happily ran to his room.
