I Am Making Movies Awards Night

Room 14 had entered a movie competition and it was time for the awards ceremony.
Yesterday at 2:45 pm we went in the bus to go to the museum. In the bus Dillon, Kingston, Samuela and I were sitting together getting smart to each other. As we were looking out the motor way we saw a red car and Dillon said ''All goods brother'' to it and we were laughing .

Finally we arrived at the museum.As we got out Miss King was freezing so she was holding me because I was warm.Then she said to the kapa haka group ''We are going in first." The kapa haka group had to stay in the coldness. Me and my movie group were excited, but man it was hot inside.

We got in the theatre room and the kapa haka group were on stage. They looked like choirs but with out the funky dresses and the scary faces when they were performing. They sang four traditionnal songs that were important and supporting us.

We had won the best story telling movie because we were just the bomb. It was exciting when we won because Dillon, Kingston, Ramona, Mary L, Samuela and I got to go on stage and show off our clothes. I got to do a speech because I was the chattiest one out of all of us.

Afther the ceremony we ate some food,like fruit kebabs. The one with the pineapple was yuck because it was sour. The drink washed it down and it had a delightful taste

I think that the museum movie competion was actually wicked and awesome.

A Sunny Friday Afternoon


What better way to spend a sunny Friday afternoon, than to play a huge game of Capture the Flag. PES Team 4 (150 students) all got together to see whether it would be the year 5s or year 6s who could capture the flag. It was an intense game with year 5 triumphing over the "big kids"! It seems that speed and agility won out over size today.
What a great game to end the week.

Story Sculptures Volcano Report


A volcano is an opening in the earth's crust, through which lava, ash and gases flow. The word volcano comes from the Roman god of fire - Vulcan.
A volcano erupts when the pressure inside the earth builds up and needs to escape. Molten rock, in the mantle, heats up. The magma chamber fills up, then the magma pushes up the vent and out of the crater.
There are three main types of the volcano. One is a cinder cone another a shield or a composite. The most dangerous one is composite volcano because it erupts violently with lava and ash. A volcano can be active,dormant (sleeping) or extinct.
A volcanic eruption can be both destructive and beneficial. Falling ash is dangerous to aeroplanes, can cover buildings and make it hard to breathe. Lava flows and lahars destroy everthing in their paths. However, sometimes eruptions can creature new fertile land.
Ash,lava and gas from deep inside the earth can be very destructive and dangerous during a volcano eruption. However if we are careful we can enjoy the benfits of new land and fertile soil.

Osana's Rainy Day


Early in the morning, the rain came down and it completely blanketed the school. The rain bucketed down onto the roof. It made a very big puddle on the court. The cold dangerous weather was so sad and dismal.

As it rained, puddles and a lake formed in front of the classroom. I looked out the window and the lake was still there and it was growing larger.The big puddles almost filled the whole court, it was like a pool. Once the rain stopped, the lake dried up again.
