Film Festival

Today was an exciting day for St Pius, because we were going to Sylvia Park to watch the Manaiakalani Film Festival.

Every school sent in movies so we can watch it in the Sylvia Park movie Hoyts. We went to the bus at 10:00am and we ended up at Sylvia Park at 10:15. We lined up at the car park. When we were ready to go we went in. We were walking everywhere it was like having an adventure. There was a giant christmas tree at the movie entrance. We had to go up the escalator before we went inside the movies. We had to sit down and wait for the other schools. There was Glenbrae school, Pt england school and much more.

When all of the school were at the theatre we went inside the theatre. St Pius kids were so lucky that they sat in the cool chairs. It had a leg rest and a lump. The teachers were setting up the kids, they were telling the kids where to sit. When we were all ready to start Mr Coakley came up to the stage. He was talking after he was talking there was an video clip. Angelica was in that video.

To be a good sportsman you should play fair and not cheat. We can show sportsmanship by being honest and not breaking the rules. To make sports better you should be helpful and not fight. To show sportsmanship you should be friendly and not be hurt.

Kids for Kids Concert

We practiced our songs for the kids 4 kids. Everytime when it’s nearly home time Miss G would turn on the kids 4 kids music and she would help us.

We would practice everyday, it was fun. We had to practice everyday until it was the day. We had to sing some new songs and Miss G helped us to get the new song right. If we got the tone wrong we would do it again until we got it right. Some of the the tunes were hard to sing. When we practiced we have to close our books and know it off by heart and that was hard for some people but for me it was easy. It was awesome to sing, I sang everyday.

I love to sing, everywhere I go I always sing. Some of the songs were easy to remember but some of the songs were hard, but still fun. It is easy to sing, all you do is just make sure your voice is tuned and it is right for the music.

We usually sang on the mat after eating our fruits. Miss G played the songs on her laptop, there was backing music (that for us to use when we didn’t need the person singing.) and there was the normal music (a person singing our part).

We had to know all the songs off by heart before the day we performed. If we didn’t know the songs off by heart the kids in kids 4 kids would think we hadn’t learnt it.

By the time it was the day we took the books back and went but I wasn’t there when it was the night because I was just too busy and tired.

Granny Smith

The fruit of the day was Granny Smith apples.

It looks like a ball all round. It sounds crunchy like a crunchy bar when you bite it and smells fresh, yum and nice.

The apple feels as soft as baby's skin and as hard as a tennis ball but is smooth. It tastes sweet, sour, yum, juicy and awesome. It is seen in the shops, apple trees and supermarkets.

It is used to help you be healthy and to be eaten. It is special because it is healthy.

The Granny Smith apple is my favourite fruit in the whole wide world to me and I eat it everyday.

Cross Country

It was an exciting day for St Pius X school because we were having cross country.

We were sitting in a line in our age groups. Parents were there and some babies were there too. The 5 year olds were getting ready......1 2 3 go! Off they went, the students were yelling and cheering! The runners went past the drinking fountain and went past the classrooms and run to the tennis courts and around the church. When the 5 year olds were finished it was the 6 year olds turn.

The 6 year olds did the same thing as the 5 year olds. The
juniors ran the same, the 7 year olds were really fast, my eyes were glued to the cross country.

When the 8 years old were finished it when the seniors turn. They have to run around the street.......1 2 3 go! they ran. When the 13 year old people went it went the 12 year old turn. 1 2 3 go! they went. Now it was the 11 year old. 1 2 3 go! they ran like a cheetah. When the 11 year old went it was the 10 years old. 1 2 3 go! they went. Now finally it was the 9 years old. I was nervous......1 2 3 go! I ran as fast as my legs could carry me.

I was holding my drink bottle. When I went to drink my drink I had a drink and I got a stitch, it was really painful. I was power walking, when we got down the hill my legs was out of control and I was running fast. I said to Aurora “this is funny!” and Aurora said “i know!” Aurora and I were running fast. When we finished running Aurora and I were power walking again, we were nearly at the school hill.

We were almost up the hill 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9.... We made it! I was tried, but we had to go inside the tennis courts and run around the block. After running around the block we had to sit down in our age group. I came last but I didn’t care because I was running for fun.

Olympics Flame

The Olympic Flame lights when the Olympics starts.

It looks like a flaming, fire flower, it is bright and it smells like gas. If anyone touches the torch their hand will be burnt and sore.

It has been seen in the Olympics all around the world and a person holding a stick lights the torch.

It is special because it was there since the Olympics started.

When the Olympics started the torch light up and when the sports of the Olympics are close that means the torch is not on.

Netbook Description

My learning tool is really helpful for my learning.

My Triple E pc is black and when it is opened it has a webcam, keyboard and a screen. When I draw in tux paint it has a cool sound on it, but when it is off it doesn’t play anything. It feels smooth and rough.

My netbook can be seen in the classroom and my house. When it's night time we keep it in school and it’s in a safe place that charges our netbook, called computer on wheel (C.O.W). When our netbook is on we close our lid on our netbook and we put it in our tote tray.

My netbook helps me to research stuff and helps me with my learning. I can work on my netbook and get on
the Internet making sure I am being responsible.

Our netbook is used thinking about being Cybersmart and being respectful with our keyboards and screens.

We are some of the first people in New zealand to use our netbooks for our learning.

My netbook is great for me, I can go on the Internet and work on the Internet and it’s a great learning tool.

Maths Reflection wk1- t3

Learning Intention: Rounding a number up to 10 or 1

Rounding a number is when we have to look at a number up or down. When we look at the five the five is in the middle so it can be down or up. For example, 5 the nearest number is 10 and 1 because five is in the middle so if you round five the answer will be 10 or 1.

When Rango came he said “the fight is happening at 10:00 to 12:30pm”. Tane was thinking a long time then he got it Tane said “We should clean it up.” but Rango said “No” because it was going to be a mess. So tane thought, again. Tane said “We should tell them to stop.” Rango said “No, because they won’t listen and they will never stop and it’s making me upset, only if there are lots of strong trees, this is when they will stop.” So Tane smiled and he had in idea. Tane said “I can use my strong tree power.” Tane was fixing his power while Rango looked at the time. DING!!!! the time struck 10:00. Everyone opened their doors.....ZAP. There was a tree ZAP, ZAP, ZAP, ZAP, ZAP, ZAP, ZAP. Trees were everywhere they all looked scared and went back home because the tree will kill them when they will not stop fighting.

Imagination Story

I woke up in my bedroom and I saw that I was in ice cream 
world. I didn’t know what to do so I asked a person to help me but he said “no there are no rules, you get to do anything you want.” so I said “cool”. It suddenly rained chocolate chips and sprinkles. So I ran back home and got my umbrella and stood in the rain. I walked until I found a man who strangely knew my name, he kidnapped me.

We went to a place where people have awesome adventures. I wanted to run away, but it was awesome, it was not that scary. It had ice cream fountains. When I went where I had to go sleep it was a small place that was old and scary. I was scared I said “I...... want to....... go......... home........” I was shaking a little. The until the man said “it time for you to clean the bathroom and go for an adventure.” I said “no I will stay here until I go back home!” He pushed me to the bathroom, I was sad. I was crying and crying. But instead I cleaned the bathroom and went to have an adventure.

He took me to this place where we had adventures but I was still sad. It stopped raining and came out with an ice cream rainbow. I thought they were going to drop me back home, but instead they dropped me back to the danger zone. Suddenly an angel appeared in front of me, it was glowing and she said “I will save you.” So the angel took me home. She gave me a present I opened it up and inside was ice cream and lollipop! I said “thank you.” I started eating it.

I went back to the real world into my real house into my bedroom and went back to sleep.

Pigeon: Impossible

Plot: It is about a secret agent named Walter and a pigeon. The pigeon wanted to have the doughnut so Walter gave him a little bit of the doughnut but the pigeon didn’t want the little doughnut. The pigeon wanted the whole thing so when Walter left the case open the pigeon fell in the case and the case closed. The pigeon was pressing buttons and flew around in it shooting people. When Walter opened the case he took out the pigeon and threw the doughnut and the doughnut pressed the rocket button. Walter had to fly up to the rocket and blow up the bomb. At the end the bomb came down to the bird and squashed him.

Problem: The pigeon fell in the case and pressed the button to eject the rocket and it was about to blow up Moscow Russia.

Solution: Walter dropped the doughnut and the bird followed it. He made the bomb blow up by shooting a gun.

Your opinion of the story: I love it because it was funny because at the end the bomb came down and hit the bird.

Illustration of a character doing something from the story:

Tom and the Dragon

Tom said “can I go and play at the bridge?” So Tom’s mother said “yes, but be careful because there is a dragon who lives there. He will bbq you and will eat you up. So never go, ever go, inside the cave. He will play a little game of chess and when you win he will blow out his fire and if he wins you will fight him so never fight him, ever fight him, never fight him. Next the dragon will tell you to go on his back. When you go on his back he will tell you to open your eyes and when you look down you will fall down so never look down, ever look down, never look down. His teeth are as sharp as a knife, so never go ever go, never go in. Next he will burn up a dough and make it as a bread.”

Tom was sacred but when the dragon looked at him, he was sacred. The dragon said “My mummy said that if I go to a little boy he will make me do all of the work.” Tom said “ I won’t do that.” So Tom and the dragon became friends.


Anyone can play basketball and we can be in five group or teams.

Basketball is like netball but you have to dribble the ball.

In basketball you are not allowed to hold the ball without dribbling.

You have to be fit if you want to be in the team. If your not fit you can’t be in the team. If you are too thin you can be in the team if you are just right you can be in the team.
