Imagination Story

One cold morning I was digging a hole when suddenly I fell down into the hole. I screamed as I saw nothing but blackness.
I opened my eyes and I whispered to myself “where am I?” I was standing on white, slimy ground. I looked around and the trees were brown and shaped like squares. Suddenly it started to rain I thought it would be water rain but then it was Gum Ball rain. I looked up and all I saw was Gumballs falling down onto my face and onto everyone. I walked and it felt yucky because of the white slimy ground.

A man came and I screamed because he was small, he had four big eyes, he had 4 small ears, 2 long arms and 2 long legs, one big nose and a big head. He introduced himself and his name was Scottsdale. I whispered to him “hi do you know where I am?” After that he answered my question saying “you are in Dairy milk”. I said “wow, that is a strange name for a country”.

After that he was saying to me “here this is a ball” and I said “wow I have never seen a ball like that in my country” It was a rainbow one and it was amazing. Scottsdale whispered saying “yes it is really special.” He gave me it and “here have it and keep it” I shouted normal at him saying “are you sure?” and Scottsdale whispered saying“yes you can go back to your country now.” I asked “how? I can’t because there is no way to go back to my country” Scottsdale replied “yes you can” I was speaking normal to him saying “how?” Scottsdale said to me “yes, with that special thing that I gave you.” I thanked him and he answered saying “it is all right.” I held the special ball and it took me back and the hole was still there.

Once I was sure that I was really back home I went to put the special gift under my bed.

Glitter Art

This is my koru art. We copied Rueben Paterson’s art, he is a dynamic young artist. When I did my koru art I enjoyed painting and glittering my koru art too because I love painting and I also love glittering my koru art.
The part that I found difficult was when I used the pastel because it took forever to do it.

Wednesday was a special day because we had to stop doing our work because we had to learn how to do orienteering. This man came inside the classroom with Mr Cookley. When he came inside he was really old then we packed our stuff. I was so excited and I think the others were too. He introduce himself and he said “ Hello my name is Mr McGivern. I’m going to show you how to play orienteering,” 

I wanted to play Orienteering straight away but we had to learn how to play it. Once he told us how to play it he said “well we will have to use a paper so we won’t make holes on the ground". So we used paper. First we had a piece of paper from Mrs Irene. It had numbers on it from 1 to 12. The paper that were hidden it had numbers 1 to 12 on it too. 

After when we finish Mr McGivern said “who can tell us what it says.” Kilisitina said “have a nice day.” I looked at it and it did say have a nice day, but know some knew because it was spelt backwards. After that we said “thank you” then they went.


On basketball any can join in.

If your little and you play basketball they use little balls.

You're not not allowed to dribble the ball with two hand in basketball.

Also if you shoot you have to shoot with one hand and no cheating.

Howick Historical Village

Mrs Mills was our teacher for school. She was strict. There were three rows inside the classroom. When we all went inside I was kind of nervous because room 6 said “watch out this lady is gonna smack you.” So I listened to Mrs Mills.

When we went inside we had to curtsy (girls) and bow (boys). Once we finished we had to sit down. Mrs Mills said “girls you sit on the left side, boys you sit on the right side and the rest of you can you sit in the middle”. Justin sat in the front because there wasn’t enough seats on the right. After that Mrs Mills said “sit up and put your feet together and fold your arms”. So we did.

Miss G and Andrew sat at the back because they were seniors. Mrs Mills said “can you you fit” to Sonya and Sonya just nodded her head up and down. Mrs Mills said “okay.”

After that we started to learn about when Mrs Mills was in a boat and she said that this man came and gave her a telescope. She said “far, far away I saw a lot of things. What things do you think I saw? Folauhola said “ice” and Mrs Mills said “yes”. Then Ierei said “Penguins” and Mrs Mills said “yes there were a lot of Penguins”.

Then Mrs Mills got a map that was hanging on the wall, and some things were red highlighted. She said “what are the counties that highlighted in red?” First we started from the bottom. The bottom one was a small country called New Zealand. After that we went to the top it was a big one that the juniors got all the answers wrong. Then Ana looked back and said “Miss G do you know what it is?” but Mrs G said nothing. So Ana looked back again. We passed it over to the seniors at the back of us. Andrew said “Canada” and he was right.

Once we finished we learnt how to write in the olden days, it was really hard to me. After that Mrs Mills said “the things on the board that are written, you have to write it like that”. So we had to write it. Once I finished I looked at my writing and it was ugly to me.

Tom and the Dragon

There was once a dragon who lived in a cave and there was a boy called Tom. Tom said to his mother “can I go to the bridge?” Tom’s mother said “yes, but be careful because the dragon lives near the cave.”

Tom went to the bridge and the Dragon was hanging upside down. Tom saw the Dragon and the Dragon saw the Tom. The Dragon was scared because his mother said to not play with boys because they are enemies, that was why he was scared.

The Dragon stood up and put his hand on his face. Tom climbed up the stairs and he went to the Dragon and just stood there. The Dragon was really scared because Tom was just standing there. The Dragon was looking at Tom and Tom was looking at the Dragon. Tom was smiling at the Dragon. They became friends but the Dragon’s mum was still scared. Tom and the Dragon lived happily ever after.
