The Next Finder


The Next Finder



Today we read a chapter book called 'The Next Finder'. Its an interesting book by George Ivanoff and illustrated by Julian Drakais. Its about a boy named Toby, his mum just found a job at a junkyard. There at the junkyard was a weird thing that was really important to a man called 'Scrarp'. I recommend that all students should read this interesting book about 'The Next Finder'.

Ginger, Brownie and Sleepy My Kittens

Sleepy

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.

Lion

Lion
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


Science
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?

                     Family
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.
