Flanders Feild

Flanders Field

The poem called Flanders field really touches my heart, because it's about the ANZAC soldiers that went to war and fought for our country to be safe for all the new humans that come in to the world each year.

Waka Ama

I would love to be in the Waka Ama boat race, because that could get me out of a whole lot of  chores for the day. Plus it could get me outdoors instead of being stuck in the house doing nothing which is EXTREMELY BORING. It's also to prove i'm not a lazy person like old people.

That is why I would love to be in Waka Ama

Setting sail

Dear Bella

I know how it feels to be moving to a new country. When I first came to NZ I was really scared and nervous at the same time. It was scary because there were new things I never knew. Also going to school was the worse part for me because I was already bonding with the other people at my old school, but I always looked on the bright side which was starting fresh which meant new house new friends and new school.When I thought of all those things I began to think of the great things it could do to my life it could build up my confidence and so it did which makes me feel better about myself.
Ever since that day I've grown up to achieve things in my life.

Love malia

In the beginning of (1800-1870)

Today I will give you 3 facts about Maui. My fist fact about Maui is that he is a noble warrior that will always protect his village from anything that comes near it. Also he does not care when people insult him.

10th Year Anniversary Of The Manaiakalani Film Festival

We went on a bus. Some people from our school went before us because they were presenting films in other cinemas for other schools. My  favourite film was Tamaki Primary's singing film. I forgot what it was called but it was an excellent film. We went to the film festival at 1:00.

We got good compliments from the bus driver they said "we are the best school so far". Well I felt good. In the cinema we were with St. Pius x Catholic school. It was the 10th year anniversary.  I felt tired after all the films.

Ginger, Brownie and Sleepy My Kittens


I have always wanted to have a kitten in my life but my mum didn't have enough money to buy one. So I didn't really care because if I had or not had a kitten. If I had a kitten I knew it would be hard work looking after a kitten.

It all started when I was about 5 years old I had 3 kittens instead of just 1 kitten. The first kitten was all light brown on the body then dark brown stripes on the body so I called her ginger. The second cat was black and white. It was always sleepy so I called that cat sleepy. The third cat looked exactly like the first cat so I named that cat brownie.

Since my mum didn't have enough money I had to give 2 cats away. I gave away ginger to my auntie Lima and and I gave brownie away to my other auntie Lata. I kept sleepy because she was special to me. Shes special to me because she was black and white and brownie and ginger were the same colour. That's the reason why I kept sleepy. 

I always liked to play with sleepy. I could only play with sleepy sometimes because she was asleep most of the times everyday. At night time sleepy would be playing and i'm asleep. One afternoon when I came back from school my mum told me sleepy had died and she was only a teenager.

If I could be any any animal in the world I would love to be a lion. I want to be a lion because lions are strong and fierce. There's something stopping me from being a lion... I am already a human being. My last reason why I want to be a lion is because I am bossy and the lion is the king of the jungle.

Buried Treasure

Buried Treasure

Yesterday I read Buried treasure. It was about a little girl that was going to Mowhanau beach to find buried fossils. What it said in the story was "The cliffs are really dangerous. Parts of them can suddenly collapse. There's something else to watch out, too. The tide. If we get trapped between the cliffs and the tide is coming in, were in big trouble.

All In Black

Just recently a family member of mine died, her name was Ana Naugh Vatuvei. She had sort of bushy, curly hair which was grayish and white. She looked so little and skinny in side the brown coffin she was lying in. The colour of her skin was was light brown. When she was lying in her coffin her mouth was closed.

On the first day of the funeral, we couldn't make it so we went on the second day. The funeral was in Panmure next to a laundromat. When I walked into the funeral place I got a little fright because it was scary and it felt creepy. It was sad to see people close to her cry out loud.

It was nearly finished so it was time to kiss her. The first ones to kiss her were her actual family. Then it was the people who were close to the family, I was one of them. At first I felt confident to kiss her but when I got up I felt uncomfortable. When I kissed her she was really cold which made my lips cold.

Experimenting On Sound

Yesterday I made a string phone out of cups and strings. To make my string phone work, I had to make sure that I pulled the string tight enough. Then I would give one of the cups to my friend so I can talk to her/he through the string phone. After I put the cup on to my ear and listen to what my friend is saying through the cup. That is how my string phone works.

Why family is important?

The most important people to me is my family. I love my family for a reason and it is not because they are my family. I love them because they will love me no matter what I do and say. I also love them because they provide me with water and food. They also look after me when I am sick. My family helps me go through private stuff like bullies.

The other day we made a speech about something we love. So I wrote about my family and why I love them.
