Future aspirations talk

This morning we had four visitors came and stop by to inspire us to make a really good choices for our future and what we want to do with our lives. One of the thing that I really like of what Mr Samuels said was (your past does not determine your future). I think that is really important to remember in the future it could help you to be the person that want to be. Mr Samuels had really blown my mined to think about my future and what I want to be when I get older and to find something that I enjoy.

Manaiakalani film festival recount writting

Last weekend most of the Manaiakalani school went to Sylvia park to attend the film festival to showcase the movie or event film that we made from our school. This only happens once a year, we got there by the bus and we were really excited to see what other school had been up to during the year.

On the film festival morning as I woke up I was knowing that it was going to be a really fun day so I quickly jump out of bed and got ready to go to school. My dad dropped me and my sister off to school When I arrived at school I saw some of my friends. So I ran up to them and I could hear that they were talking about the film festival. I’ll ask them are you guys going and have you pay your money? “yes” in a happy voices they all said together. After that moment the ball raging and we went inside our classroom and got ready to leave to Sylvia park.

Soon after morning tea as we all been waiting long enough we finally walk to the bus’s as I step on the stall. I was feeling little bit nervous because I didn't know where to sit but luckily I saw some of my friends so i sat with them. On our way to Sylvia park I was getting really exciting to see our school movies as will as other schools movies. The most thing that I enjoy doing on the bus’s was talking and laughing with my friends.  

When we got to Sylvia park we have to wait in our class line waiting for the teacher to tell when to go finally after a few minute we to the movies we all went and sat down. Some of us were feeling a bit nervous because other other peoples from definition school going to see their movies. The first movies that was showing was our class movie which is class 3 from Pt England school, I think that my class movie was the best movies out of all Pt England school because It really showed me what it means to be kind. If you help someone when they need it you’ll get some help back from other peoples witch is nice.

Other movies was enjoyable too, seeing other peoples from definition school do fun stuff in their school made me smile seeing that they having fun doing thing that they enjoy or like. I learn so much from seeing all those movies there are three thing that I learn the first thing that I learn was how to be kind. Next thing I learn was how to have fun last not least I learn how to create super enjoyable movies. After we have seen all the movies we went back to our school on the bus’s of course. On the way going back my friends and as will as other people talked about the movies that they liked the best, but I was thinking about what I would do to show these peoples that I have learn something from their movies.

Triangle addition T4 week 2

Recount Holiday Writing week 2 T4

Recently in the holidays me and my family went to Sylvia Park to do our shopping. Driving past Burger King I was hunting through my wallet to double check that I had enough money so I can buy me some new clothes from the Hastiness Brothers. Later on I was getting hungry, my stomach was rumbling like a pack of wild wolfs howling. I sprinted past people like a flash of light so I can beat other people so I can be first in line to buy me chicken sushi.

After having a delicious lunch we went back home. Driving up the driveway I sprinted past the door to my room and quickly tried on my clothes that I brought. Later on that day I went on youtube to listen to music because I was bored and I got nothing to do. Soon I was so bored that I feat asleep in my room.

On the next following day as I work up I was feeling really happy and I jumped out of bed then I look at the windows and it was raining. My face went from happy to angry because I really wanted to go for a long walk at the beach. Cause It raining all day I couldn't go anywhere but stay home and did some boring stuff like watch a TV or go on the computer. My holiday was fun and boring so to me it kinda OK that the end of my holiday recount.

Life Education

This term class 3 has been going to life education to study about drugs and alcohol and how it affects our human body. Drugs and alcohol can be really easy to find and also can be really easy to get. Lynn told us that when a teenager takes drugs and alcohol it can really damage their brain and body. It’s can cause a problem if they take too much drugs and they might get sent to the hospital.

A drug can be simply described as anything that one puts into their body that is not food, water or oxygen and it can changes the way the body works. When someone chooses to use a drug it enters the bloodstream and travels to the brain. It could slow down how the brain work. Lynn also told us that drug don’t chooses people but people chooses drug.

The drug is only needed just to feel normal when you are sick or something. More is needed to get the same feeling that they had when they first took the drug. This is called addiction. First you like it, then you want it, it leads into needing it and finally you start craving it.

Most addicts have a history of their beginning drug user, or drinking too much alcohol, as a teenager. If you're new to drinking alcohol you’ll start treating people differently and you’ll also get addicted to drinking. So always pick the right choices and never pick drugs or alcohol because if you do you’ll be ending up in jail.

Tennis Writing

Tennis is a challenging international sport played all around the world. It can be played against a single opponent or between two teams with two players on each side, each player uses a racket that will allow them to hit the tennis ball over the net on the opponents side. Today’s tennis balls are made out of hollow rubber ball fuzzy like material. The size of tennis balls is approximately 6.7 cm (2.63 in.) So when the opponent hits the ball it can go really fast.   

They have to hit the ball over a low, tight tennis net and into their opponents court. The objective of this game is when you hit the ball, make it so that the other player cannot hit it back. Making them tired is the best way to win. Also hitting it on the side is the best. Tennis is really swift games because you have to be really fast trying to hit your opponent ball.

To be a tennis player you have to under go plenty of training, you have to hits many balls as you can. Also you have to be a fast runner, by doing running it can help you a lots with tennis. This sport is one of the best sport for me because it is one of my favourite sport out of all the sports and it is really fun to play. If you just give it a try maybe you will like it too.

Why do you think it was important to be initially learning on dry land? Because they have to learn all the name of the part and find out how to rig the boat so it’s ready to to sail on the water.

Referring to the images on page 12, what are they learning on the dry land? They are learning all the part of the boat, and learn how to sail the boat on the water.

Why are ‘Optimists’ ideal to use when sailing? So kids can go sailing and it will be safe and solid for them to go and have fun.

Find the other meaning for optimist, define it:
The Optimist is sturdy, safe , and unsinkable.

Why is the direction of the wind important when sailing? Because it is very important that you know where the wind is coming from so you won’t get stuck on the sea.

What clue did the instructor give the children, when trying to figure out the direction the wind was blowing in? Why would this make sense? Which parts of your face and neck feel cold that will help you feel know where the wind is coming from.

Find five important facts that are important when sailing an optimist.
The important thing of the boat is boom, rudder , tiller , sheet , and centreboard.

Why did Mark demonstrate how to tip the boat over? For what reason do you think he would have done this? So if their boat get tip over, and so they would know how to get back on the boat and get the water out.

Before getting in a Optimist, why do you think it would be most important to be a good swimmer? Because when your boat get tip over it very important that you know how to swim so you can be save.

Would you like to sail an Optimist, do you think it would be difficult? Why/why not? Yes it would be difficult because once at years 6 camp I went sailing and my boat got tip over.

One rainy day I woke up and jumped out of bed and got ready to go outside in my head I thought it would be sunny. “but I stop and think” as I can hear the sound of the heavy rain. I don’t believe this I said to myself, so I opened the door to see for myself as I did I can feel the heavy rain but the winds felt like something was going to drag me into another world.

After that I close the door and went back inside as I look sad at the same times I was feeling anger my face turd red. As I went to sat down, so instead of going outside I went on the computer and watched you tube. After all that day was kind of fun for me I felt really happy
