Finally Get To See Different School Films

On Wednesday Was Our tenth year anniversary of Manaiakalani film festival. It was at Sylvia park Hoyts, everyone went except for kids that have been misbehaved and didn't bring their notice. In The Morning it was raining so we didn't get to do fitness outside so Miss Misela decided to do fitness inside, so for fitness we did dancing. So After five hours or six hours we finally went to line up But Miss Vickers Called up Miss Misela and the two presenter room tens presenters were Jessica And Leanah.

So all classes lined up and waited, Miss Vickers called brazie to go to her because he didn't bring his notice so he sat with a few kids, all classes hoped in there bus, The teachers Told us where to sit and I was sitting next to Sosiua and next to Sosiua was Jacob. Then after a few minutes we finally arrived So the teachers that were with us told us to behave and be sensible. We lined up and we walked to the cinema we saw a few schools and I saw People that were at Ruapotaka long time ago.

Then when we were sitting there i was talking to Sosiua and Mary-Ruth. We waited and waited until we finally got our School to go on the escalator and walk to the Hoyts. We saw a Hugely insane Figure of hulk and medium size of Thor it was cool. Then we went into our Cinema and I saw a huge screen it was cool but once we walked in I saw Lots of chairs that were empty, Then We sat in the Cinema chairs and I was next to Kain and Mary-Ruth. All the movies got shown on the big screen we all relaxed, i almost fell asleep. It finally came to my film it was about love Jessica and Leanah was our presenters they said

Jessica: Can you feel the love tonight?
Jessica: isn't love just the best?

About scientists!!!

I have learned that scientists have a skill called observation. You know how people just look at it then they just know what it is but scientists they just look at it like an hour or minutes and they realise the detail in that tree or an object if it is an object scientist will investigate and say to themselves "its a object but not just any object it is an object that has creative drawing on it" says the scientist

How I Would Survive In The Jungle!

First  I would make a fire and get branches and make myself a tent. Then kill an animal that has fur so I could use the fur for my clothes and my blanket. If I get hungry I would hunt for fruit in the trees and get a lot until I don't need it. Then eventually I would make a torch and use it for night time and when it comes to morning I would exercise and have a run around the jungle. Then go swimming and also hunt for meat. Then I could become the first person to survive the jungle but then if I get lost I would follow my foot steps that are smashed in the mud.

When I get dirty I would go to the ocean where it is close to my camp and go for a shower but shower with my clothes on. When I see a tiger or a cheater I would train it to become my pet and it would protect me. Then I would blend in the tree and find some food for my pet and also get a lot of water so that when I go somewhere else I don't have to get water again. We could go back to my camp and sleep.

If  I hear something at night I would wake up and wake my pet up and if I see a predator. I would kill it but if it is kind and doesn't attack I won't kill it. I would rather leave it alone and make it my pets best friend so that my pet wont be alone and by itself. 

That's how I would survive and if  I travel to Africa it will be hard for me because there is not that much water in Africa so I'm lucky that I got water in my imaginary jungle.

When I Gave Away My Baby Clothes

Giving away my baby clothes        

When I was little I had small clothes but then I grew so fast and became ten years old. I was thinking "What am I going to do with my baby clothes?", my mum decided to give it to my baby cousin. 

We went to my cousins house and O.M.G I couldn't believe what I saw. I saw my little cousin grab out a lot of my baby clothes. They were cute and little so I gave the bag of clothes to my aunt and she said "What is this for?" and I said " It's for Rosie" oh and my little cousins name is Rosie isn't that a beautiful name. 

Then my aunt said "Thank you" she had a beautiful smile on her face, I knew my aunt would love it so then we had dinner. I ate cooked chicken with rice. I took a bite and O.M.G it was so delicious so I kept on eating until my stomach was full. I went to my cousin Naia shes eight or nine years old, I'm older than her. 

I gave my clothes to my little cousin then my aunt grabbed one of my baby clothes and told my little cousin Rosie excitedly to "Try this out". I was excited and happy that I gave away my clothes to her and they were happy too.

Spirit Animals Reading A Book Called A Country Like Mine

 A Country like mine
We've been reading a text called "A Country Like Mine". It was very interesting and it was about him living in Iran. The capital city of Iran is Tehran and did you know that a lady has to look modestly and cover her head and wear beautiful colourful cloths. If you don't wear it then you break the law and they even have to wear it at school. The story also had little boy called Alli Rabbani in it and he is ten years old and when they had their dinner or lunch they had to sit on the floor and eat. In New Zealand we eat on the table.

St Kents Sport

This is our St Kents sport
We all had a lovely time we all had to be split in three groups I was in the third group our coaches were Kaeleb and Pacey they were cool they were both boys so we all got to play a game called touch but we changed the rules for touch they had to take off there tags to say that they got touched and our coaches said if a girl scored we get four points but if a boy scored they get only two points so we all played and I was in the yellow team and my friend was in the red team. So my team got six points and the other team got one then after touch we played passing but we had to stay in our touch teams so we passed it was a challenge so if one of your teammate dropped the ball then you won't have to restart but our team had only seven people and the other team had eight people so we had to pass it on and my team kept on winning but the most funny part is when the other team had to do ten push ups and pick up the cones. Then we finished sports and we had to go in a circle like a bunch with kaeleb and Paceys coach said we all have to come in a bunch and we did do it then we all came and we putted our hands on each others shoulders then we all said good-bye!
