Once upon a time there was a family that was going to Hollywood. When they got to the airport they were on a rush.

Being a successful learner involves you being reflective about the learning process. It is about you identifying your strengths, weaknesses and areas you would like to improve in. Reflection just does not happen at the end of a task, it can be throughout a task.

1. Are you pleased with how this term has gone for you? No because I want to learn my 12 times table.

3. What have you found easy this term? Do my 3 and 4 times table because I know it now.

X Country

Wow! St Pius X school had X Country on the 24 of August. First we had to wait for the juniors races to finish. I was cheering for my sister to run faster. I was so sad that she came second to last, but I was still happy that she just finished the race.

After the junior races it was seniors races. It started from the 13 year olds down to 9 years old. Mr Coakley ran with the 13 year olds. There were only two people who beat Mr Coakley, it was Siu and Rolland.

When it was the time for the 9 year olds race I was so happy when my teacher Miss Gleeson said “go”. Suddenly when I was coming first some people cheated and crossed the road but I didn’t care.

When I came back from the course I came third, but I was still happy that I just finished the course.

I felt very happy that I just finished the course.

Imagination story

“Get up Simione” yelled my Mum. “Go and dig a hole for dad’s apple tree”.
“Okay Mum, I will do it when I get up”.
Mum got angry and she said to me “Hurry up before I get up and drag you out so you can do it”. So I got up and walked out of the house and went to the shed to grab my spade and start to dig. I asked myself “How long is this going to take?”

Suddenly I fell in this deep hole that took me to a world called Tonga. Once I landed. I saw the king of Tonga and he was so rich that I wanted to be like him. He said to me “Where are you from?” and I said “I am from New Zealand and I came here because I fell in this hole that I was digging, that is why I am stuck here with you”. I said to the king of Tonga “This place is a hot place, I would love a drink of water.” So king Misiotei took me to his house and gave me a drink. He said to me again “Take this crown to your place and I will know that you have it, Go now and hide it”.

I suddenly woke back up and checked that I still had the crown. I had it in my hand so I ran and hid it safely.

Pigeon Impossible.

Plot: There was a man walking and his name was Walter Beckett and he was a Secret Agent. His boss gave him a suitcase that he had to give to his master so he can press the button for the rocket to go Russia so it can blow it up. When the pigeon fell inside the suitcase the pigeon started to press any button and he was shooting people with the laser gun.       

Problem: In the problem the pigeon wanted the donut so Walter gave him a piece but pigeon wanted the whole thing so he walked closer and then he fell in the suitcase and he did not know what to do. So he started to press any button  

The second problem was when Walter cucked the donut to pigeon and it landed on the button that the master had to press so the rocket went flying in the air.     

Solution: The thing that solved the problem was when Walter opened his suitcase and the donut came flying down and the pigeon went following the donut. The second one was when Walter shot his mini rocket bomb to blow up the very big rocket.

Your opinion of the story: I love this little clip because the little pigeon started to shot the laser gun on people's cars.I like this little mini clip because when the pigeon was inside the suitcase he started to shoot the people with the laser gun.

Orienteering Recount

On a lovely sunny day we went out and had Orienteering. We had so much fun that I could not stop playing the game. We had some teachers, their names were Mr McGivern and Miss Irene and our teacher Mrs Deeney.
First we had to had a try in the classroom. Mr McGivern picked people to go and put a paper somewhere so we can have a try at finding it in the classroom. After they did that they all came and sat down on the mat so we could get a paper. Finally we started.

When the letters were collected we had to guess what they said. It said ‘Have a nice day’. Mr McGivern told us to go and line up so he could take us to the field to play Orienteering,so we did. When we got outside and lined up Mrs Deeney said to us “Be quite”. So we did. Then we started to walk to the field. Miss Irene give us a paper that had alphabet letters on it. She said “Take your marks, get set, go”! We all started to run and run, we had to go in pairs and my partner was Misiotei and we were the last ones to finished.

The bell rang so we had to go back to the classroom and go and get our lunch, so we could eat and go play.

Howick Historical Village

Wow! My favorite thing when I went to Howick Historical Village was when we did the Scavenger Hunt. First we went into groups. Half went with Andrew and the others went with Miss G. I was in Andrew’s group.

We started with first going into the thunderbox and newspaper was covering the walls. We then went to the tent and saw pillows and the beds and toothpaste. I said “A toothpaste is a Modern thing because they did not had toothpaste in the olden days!” We got out of the tent and went into this small house that was made out of small sticks and wood.

It was cold by then and it started to rain. That was when we got wet and we could not do something so we just ran outside in the rain and straight to the house that had number 24. I said “Hey look at that it says number 24”. then Andrew said “Lets go inside and see what is in there” so we did. “Wow!” I said “ It looks wonderful, I can’t stop looking at it, I want to live here now”. Andrew said “Simione, you can not stay here because it is only for olden days, sorry”. I said “So I can live in my own house, I’m lucky”. Andrew said “ Yes we are lucky that we live in a house because if we don’t we will not come to school and we will be poor”. We looked around for a long time and then we came back and had lunch.

Tom and the Dragon

One day there was a boy called Tom. Tom asked his mum “ Can I go and play at that cave near the pier?”, his mum said “ Never ever go near that cave because there is a dragon there that will BBQ you as you can look tasty”.
Tom was walking down and he saw the dragon and he did not say anything to him until the dragon started to cry and Tom said “ Why are you crying?” the dragon said “ You are going to hurt me”. Tom said “ No I’m not going to do that to a poorly dragon am I” and the dragon said “ But my Mum said that I am not allowed to talk to people like you and humans.”

At the end they never ever became foes again.

This is the boringest holiday ever this term.
I just stayed home and played games on my big brother’s netbook. One thing that I went to was the St Pius X school movies night.
At St Pius X school movie night, I ate popcorn and lollies. When the time came my favourite movie came on, it was called ‘Real Steal’. It was a fighting movie with robots that’s why it was my favourite. My favourite part came on which is the fighting part. Joseph said “it is time to go home now because it is late” and we said “But the movie has not finished’’. We had to clean up the hall first and we did.

We finished when it was 10:00pm and we were late home. When we got home my mum and dad were still awake and my brothers and sisters went to bed. Me and my mum and dad were still watching T.V.

Oktapodi is a short film that was set in Greece. Room 3 watched Oktapodi and was amazed by the graphics. Oktapodi means octopus! This morning we learned that about how to share your opinion with others. The main characters in the movie is orange octopus and a pink one.

The orange octopus thought that the man will take the pink octopus to chop her. When the man took the pink octopus away the orange octopus escaped and went after the pink octopus. When the orange octopus caught the pink octopus they both get away and then the man chased after them. After when the man caught them he let go of the both of the octopus as he accidently drove into the sea.        

My opinion of this movie is that it is cool because Oktapodi imagined the man chopping the octopus.
