Leaving earth

Once there was a builder named Norris. Norris loved building because he was always building new things. He always dreamed of building something massive.

One day when Norris was building, one of the builders shouted “incoming?Everybody looked up and saw a bomb come from above. Everybody jumped out the way just in time but the house got destroyed.

Everybody was running around screaming. Suddenly thousands of soldier came and destroyed everything. Norris hid behind a rock and waited there.

Suddenly a man came with a black suit and a rocket launcher came and said “i am Levi but you will call me boss”. A soldier came around the rock that Norris was hiding behind and aimed his gun at norris. Norris got out the way and knocked out the soldier

Then Norris came out wearing the soldiers armour and said “i have dealt with a hiding citizen boss”.“You sound a bit weird soldier” said Levi. “Are you ok”.

“Yes i am perfectly ok” said Norris. “Let me look behind that rock” said levi. “No” said Norris.

Levi punched Norris in the face and walked towards the rock. Norris ran towards one off the Helicopters and hoped in. Norris sat on the pilot's seat and took off.

He aimed the gun’s at the soldiers and started shooting. He shot a few soldiers and then found the rocket button. He pressed it and a bunch of rockets came out and blew up a lot off the soldiers.

“Shoot him” said Levi. The soldiers aimed their guns at the helicopter and started shooting. Norris saw Levi and shot him.

Levi fell over and grabbed his walkie talkie slowly. “We need reinforcements quickly” said Levi. 5 other ships came and started shooting Norris’s ship.

Norris pressed the rocket button again and shot one of the ships. It started falling in Levi’s direction. “Ah!” said Levi as the ship came and hit him.

There was a massive explosion and lots of pieces of the ship flew up in the air. One of the pieces hit Norris’s ship and it came falling to the ground. Norris found a parachute and put it on.

He jumped out just in time. Other pieces of the ship came and hit the ships. Norris wasn’t far from a Airport so he ran towards it.

When he got there he stole a astronaut suit, quickly got into a spaceship and then blasted off into space. “I sure am a good pilot” said Norris as he floated about in the spaceship.“Hey what are you doing in here” said a voice.

Norris turned around and saw another Astronaut. Norris punched the Astronaut and then looked out the window. He saw a planet with stripes on it.

The rocket crashed into the planet and Norris jumped out. “I can do super jumps” said Norris. As Norris jumped around the planet, he spotted a weird creature.

The creature chased after Norris and caught him. The creature tried to pulled him into a hole. While the creature tried to pull him into the hole, Norris looked at earth said “i sure miss my old home”.

Finally the creature pulled Norris into the hole. In the hole there was so much food and water. “I think i will call this planet Querzeck” said Norris.

Player of the day

On Saturday, I played for my team, the Marist Jaguars, in a game against College Rifles.
Our team won 12 tries to 6 .
I scored 3 tries and won the player of the day award.
I received a trophy, a certificate and a special Milo bag.

If you believe in yourself, anything is possible.

Matching nets

Today we learnt about nets. Not nets that catch fish but different nets. If you unfold a shape, it is called a net.

Animal Adventure's part 1: Different land

Once there was a farm. On this farm there was a bull, 2 hens, a donkey, wasps and bees, 2 sparrows and a rabbit. Every day the farmer would feed them and then take them out for a walk.

One day the farmer did not take the animals out for a walk. The animals did not know why. The next day the farmer came and feed them and took them out for a walk but while the farmer was taking them out for a walk, he sneezed.

The animals got scared and ran off while the farmer just stood there shouting ‘come back here’. While they were running a giant claw came and picked all the animals up. When the animals got to the giant ship, a strange creature was standing there looking at them.

‘I am Shquachwiathwer he said and i am the leader of the corcushze’ said the creature. The animals got locked up in a cage and the spaceship was going to blast of in 1 minute. One of the hens used its beak and unlocked the cage.

30 seconds said the timer while the animals were running. The animals tripped up while they only had 15 seconds to get out. The animals got up with only 5 seconds, 4 seconds, 3 seconds, 2 seconds, 1 second, the animals jumped out just in time.

When they landed, they went splash into some water. They swam out as fast as they could. In front of them they saw a castle.

When they went inside, they saw 2 men with red tops holding a gun in there hands. The men picked the animals up and took them upstairs where they saw a lady with a dress. The lady dressed the animals up and took them to a room where they saw beds, food, and everything they could ask for.

It was getting dark so the animals decided to sleep there the night. The next day the animals woke up and looked out the window. They saw Squachwiathwer on top of the corcushze with a cage full of dangerous looking animals.

Everyone in the castle came to the room that the animals were in and also looked out the window. Squachwiathwer opened the cage and the animals charged at the castle. Everybody followed a guardsmen that came to a secret hole in the wall.

They ran through the hole and came to a secret land. There were magical creatures, giant castles and allot more. ‘Welcome to orphrexa’ said a voice.

They looked down and saw a creature with long ears and small arms and hands. Gar at your service said the creature. ‘Come with Gar to the vasbrada were our lord will speak to you’ said Gar as he walked to the giant castle with the animals, the Guards, and the Queen….

This is Squchwiathwer

What has happened to Miss West? Part 1: Battling bogers

On a very sunny day, kids from rm 10 went to school. When they got to school they did not see their teacher Miss West. No one knew what happened to Miss West until now.

When Miss West woke up, she felt a bit sick. She lay back down in her bed and tried to sleep. She couldn't get to sleep and then came a A-A-ACHOO?

She did the biggest disgusting sneeze in the world. All off a sudden she felt allot better and looked outside to see the view. She shouted in fear as she saw bogers outside in her back garden.

She opened the door to try to run away but their were boggers at the door so she jumped out off her window and ran down the street with boggers chasing her. Miss West turn around and tried to smack one of the boggers but her hand went right through it but because it was a bogger. The bogger did not get hurt and it jumped on Miss West and made her sick again so she kept running. She ran all the way to the pools and remembered what you do with boggers.

She got a towel off someone and ran along the side of the pool. The boggers all fell in the water and Miss West hid behind something so the boggers could not see her. Everyone in the pool evacuated except for Miss West and the boggers.

Miss West snuck up on the bogers and rubbed the towel all over the boggers and defeated them. She then went home to rest. OH NO Miss West screamed as she saw snails all over her house.

                                               Rugby is such a hard game but I love it.

                                                                This is me going hard.

Two dimensional shapes

Identifying two dimensional shapes

dimensional shapes
In? Geometry we can have different dimensions. The number of dimensions is how many values are needed to locate points on a shape.

A point has no dimensions.
Moving the point to one direction, we get a line.  A line is one dimensional.  
Moving the point in a different direction, we get a plane. There are two values to find a point on that plane.  We have two dimensions or “2D”
Moving the point in another completely different direction, we have three dimensional.

We are learning  to identify and understand the features of  two-dimensional shapes

Two-dimensional shape is a shape that only has two dimensions (such as width and height).  They are also made with straight lines and corners or curved lines.
Polygons are 2-dimensional (2-D) shapes with straight sides. To be a regular polygon all the sides and angles must be the same.  All shapes in the box below are polygons except circle and oval.  
A circle is a shape that is made up of one continuous curved line.  This shape is two-dimensional, which means it's flat.  A triangle is a polygon with 3 sides.

Plane Shapes

Task 1: Practicing 2-dimensional shapes.  Read the shape’s description and choose the name that matches the plane shapes above.   For example: 6 sides and 6 angles is a Hexagon.



  1. 5 sides and 5 angles.
  2. One round curved edge.
  3. 4 equal sides and 4 right angles.
  4. 2 pairs of equal angles and 4 equal sides.
  5. One-egg shaped curved edge.
  6. 8 equal sides.
  7. 3 sides and 3 angles.

Square, Oval, Triangle, Octagon, Circle, Diamond, Pentagon.

Task 2:  What am I?
  1. I am a 2-D shape with 4 sides and 4 angles.
  2. I don’t have any right angles.
  3. My opposite angles are the same size.
  4. There is a picture of me on the first page.

I am a …..
Draw a picture of the shape into your maths book. Screenshot and paste here.

Catching coin

Wow! What an experience i had playing the catching coin challenge. Today me and some of my class did a coin challenge where you have to put the coin on your elbow and try and catch it while you hit it in the air. I started with 1 coin and then caught them which means that i could get 2.

I hit it of my elbow and it fell on the floor so picked them up and caught them both so i had 3. Then i caught all 3 and i could get 4. The more i got the harder it was because when i got 8 they all began to fall off without me moving my elbow.

After about 4 minutes later i finally caught all 8 and i could get 9. Once i got 9 it got pretty easy. Then my teacher said that we had to come back inside, i love the catching coin challenge.

Smart shoes

Today my teacher showed us a picture of a shoe. I think it either looks likes a metal detecting shoe or a exercising shoe, i think it looks like a metal detector because at the front of the shoe there is something that looks like a button but it might be the bit that detects the metal, i think it might be a exercising shoe because on the side of the shoe there is a part that is orange and i think the orange part is the part that makes you exercise. I think it is made out of rubber, cotton and metal.

I think if it is a exercising shoe then it will help people get more fit and be like usain bolt. If it is a metal detector then when you find things then you can build things. Also if you find things like cups or fishing nets you can use them either outside or inside.

When i thought it was and exercising shoe or a metal detecting shoe, i was totally wrong. It turns out that it was actually a smart shoe. Smart shoes have a automatic tightener, Smart shoes also have a smart heater which makes your feet warm, Smart shoes have lots more interesting facts about them but there is just too much.

I think it is a really good idea because it is so useful. If i saw them in a shop i would most likely buy them. I would like these fantastic shoes to be able to make these make you run fast.

Now that's thinking assembly

Now that's thinking assembly

Last week on monday we had a immersion assembly. When we got to assembly we did our karakia and then our principal Mr Burt. Then our principal showed us our movies that our teachers made in the hollidays.

The first movie we watched was team 1 which did a movie about kites. In the movie the teachers were bored so they made kites. When they made the kites there was no wind so they waited at school all day and fell asleep.

They all dreamed of there kites flying high in the sky. When they woke up there was wind. They got there kites and flew them high in the sky so everyone could see them.

There were 5 movies so i could only do 2. The 2 movie is our team's movie were our teachers talked about how things have changed over the years. I think we are learning about how things have changed why things have changed over the years.

There was allot more in the assembly but i think i will just share a bit of it with you.

Letter to Mr Burt

Dear Mr Burt,
I have read a bit about the harakeke and I really like what is does. I have heard that Maui a maori legend was the person who name this plant harakeke.

Harakeke is a big help to the world. Harakeke also known as flax can help animals such as Flax snails a rare snail that live only live on the far north. Flax can help Flax snails by making shelter for the Flax snails.

Flax can also be a big help to Tui, bellbirds/korimako, saddlebacks/ tieke, short tailed bats/pekapeka, geckos and several types of insects by letting them eat the nectar from the flax flower. If we get flax it will bring so much more happiness to Pt england by making kid be happy seeing all the animals that flax attracts, taking pictures of the flax and putting it on there blog, and letting teachers teach their students about flax and all the animals. Please get flax Mr burt.

One day Rata was walking in the forest and saw a Totara tree. He went and cut down the totara tree and then cut of pieces of the totara tree. He then ran back to his village make weapons. Only ⅓ of the villagers got swords so he decided to go back to find some more trees. The next day rata went out again to find some more wood. When he was out he saw the same totara tree. He then cut the same totara tree down. When he went back to his village only ⅔ got swords. The next day Rata went to find some more trees and he saw the same totara tree! So he decided to cut the tree down a third time.Then god of the forest asked Rata why Rata was cutting down the tree. Rata said that he was cutting down the tree because he needed to make a boat and swords.
  • The god of the forest said ok and Rata cut down the totara tree, and got all of the villagers swords. Then made a boat so they could find somewhere else.

Narrative Writing

Once there was a boy called George who lived in the desert with his family. Every day they would go out in the desert to find water and food. One day George woke up and heard his family say that they did not have much food.

Later on that day George went out to find some food for his family. He got a sword and some food just in case he was going to be long. He snuck out making sure no one saw him.

Once he snuck past everyone he ran into the desert making sure no one was following him. After 30 minutes George had eaten a quarter of his food and he could not find any food or water. George got so hot that he fainted and was very hot.

When George woke up he was lying down on a bed in another village with different people. “Who are you? george asked lying in the bed. “I am charlie the man said.

“And who are you? charlie asked. “I am George and what am i doing here? George said. “We found you stranded in the desert so we brought you here to rest.

“I need food desperately George said. Charlie said that he could have a camel but no food. George said ok and took a camel then went to get some food.

George got his sword out and started cutting down the desert plants. After a while the lord of the desert came and asked George why he was cutting down the desert plants. George said that he was cutting down the plants because he needed food for his family.

The god of the desert brought him some food and then said to George “go to your home and give them this food. “It will last 3 months” said the god of the desert. “Thank you” said George as he went back to his family.

When George arrived back at his home he gave the food to his family and said “look after this food because it will last us 3 months”. From that day on George and his family never ran out of food and when they did the god of the desert brought them some food to last them another 3 months. This links to the environment because if you cut down plants you are hurting mother earth.

Year 5/6 camp

Last week on wednesday year 5 and 6s went on camp.When we got to camp we all went to the hall and praid that it would be a good day. After the prai Mr somerville said that we were not at school anymore we were at camp and that we would have to be very very good.After Mr somerville said that we could go my group went to our group teacher Mrs va’afusuaga and we went and practice our dance.Practicing our dance was fun but the funnest activity i did was the killer zone. The killer zone is a game where you have to get from your base safely across to the enemy's base. First of we had to cross a sea of sharks by getting big pieces of cardboard and place them down in front of you so you can get to the safe area.

When we started we put down all 4 off the pieces in front of us then we jump on them hopping not to fall of. Sadly one person fell of but the rest of us made it, then we got the bombs and started throwing them at each other, someone threw a bomb at my eye and it really hurt. Once all the bombs were thrown we hopped on some things that could get 5 people on and could get us past another sea of sharks, finally we got everyone which meant that we could go over the mountain.When we got over the mountain we got out a ball and put it in the catapult and hit a matt and tried to get 10 points. While we were trying to get 10 points the other team was on the second parts so we really had to catch up. Finally we got 10 points but by the time we had 5 points for the second part they had almost finished and when we did finish they already were waiting for us` some people from each team stood up and said some things about the game.Another thing that was cool was kayaking because i got to crash into other kayaks and be further than i have ever been at our school. Thank you all you helpers to give me the opportunity to be with my friend and meet new friends. I am really looking forward to next year.
