My costume was funky because It was all black like the All Blacks. My costume is strong like a Bear and black like Batman. Jump jam is a very very cool dance.

I felt excited about going on the Stage because I have done a lot of practice and this is the real thing. When I got on the stage I felt scared but I had to do It anyway. After Jump jam I was overjoyed because a lot of people were clapping at me.

Athletics day

3 weeks ago we did athletics. We lined up at class, walked to the court, and sat down in our groups. Finally when everyone was in there lines Mr Burt talked to us about being kind and not cheating and then we went.

The first event we played was shot put. Shot Put is a game where you have to hold a ball next to your neck, take 2 side steps forward, and throw the ball as far as you can. The ball was hard and i tried to get it past the champions but I was put in the practice line because I threw it out.

After we played shot put we moved to tug of war. Tug of war is a game where you have to try pull the rope to your side and stop the other team from doing the same. Our team lost all the rounds we played because on the first round our team lost and also the rope made our hands hurt for a long time.

We did other games like high jump, discus, and much more events. After all the events were done in the first half we went back to the court and sat back in our lines ready to go to morning tea. My favourite event in the first half was discus because it was so fun throwing the discus and seeing how far it went.

After Mr Burt told us that we did good in the first half and that we were all super stars we ran to class and had morning tea. After morning tea we went back in our lines at the court and waited again for Mr Burt to send us of. This time we did some games from youthtown and not events from our school.

One of the games we played was dodgeball. The dodgeball we played was different because when you get hit by the ball you sit down and wait for the person that tagged you to get hit and then stand up and try get everyone else standing up. I did really well at not getting tagged until the end where I was tagged and had to wait until the end to get up again.

My favourite game that youthtown brought us was javelin. Javelin is a game where you have to shoot the stick and try get it further than your opponent. I went up first and did not get it further than my opponent but since i was the first one to throw it in my group I got to go into the champions.

We played so many other games from youthtown. After we played all the games from youthtown we went to the court, waited for Mr Burt to send us of, and then went to get lunch. After lunch we sat on the grass and watch the big kids and teachers race.

It was so fun watching the big people race and even for fun watching my team win. After the race was finished we stood up and went back to class ready to go home. I love athletics day!

Periodic table

The periodic table has boxes with numbers and letters on them. The numbers present the protons. The letters tell us about what all the elements names are.

H means Hydrogen, he means Helium, li means Lithium, be means beryllium. Those are only 4 Elements out of 118 Elements! There is so much you can learn of the periodic table.

Film festival

Last wednesday my entire school went to there Manaiakalani Film Festival. We lined up at our class and walked nicely to the bus. When we reached the bus we hopped on with excitement and sat down waiting for the bus to go.

When the bus went I thought of what our movie would be like and asked myself “what will our movies be like”? Finally we got to sylvia park and hopped off the bus. We walked to our Manaiakalani Film Festival and sat down with our friends.

Sitting with my friends I waited anxiously for the movies to start. When the movies began I listened to what the presenters said for their movies and then watched their movies. Every movie was great and the acting was awesome.

When all the movies had finished we walked to the buses and thought of all the cool movies there had been. When we got back to class one of our teachers told us to do blog comments on the Manaiakalani movies until it was morning tea time. I love Manaiakalani Film Festival.

My favourite movie was the bmg short for big manaiakalani giant, the bmg has grey hair, wears a cape, he gives kids dreams and gives nightmares to bad people, he wears brown and white clothes. I love the movie because there is a movie called the bfg a real movie about a big friendly giant. I also like it because someone drew a really good picture of what the bfg really looks like.

Our class had 3 movies because we had 3 teachers and each teacher did a movie. One of our movies was called the family where our class was waving at each other like a family. Our second movie was called go for gold.

Go for gold is about trying your best and never giving up even when it seems impossible. Our final movie was similar to the second movie except there was more running and way more falling. My favourite movie out of the 3 movies our class was go for gold because it made me feel like playing in my old rugby team.
