The Golf Course


On a beautiful Saturday morning  Dad woke me up
and asked me if I want to play golf? Where´ I asked ´ an
adults golf course´ Yeah!´I replied I got in the shower, had
breakfast and we got in the car and went to Chamberlain
park golf course.

I was so excited!. There was a putting green that we
could practice our chips and putts. Before we started
our round of golf I met this kid Sam him and his Dad
wanted to team up. Dad and I said ´Yes´ we went to first tee
of the day.

I teed off and it was about 110 yards. When we got to
the 9th hole Sam and Mike left the golf course because
they only booked for nine holes but dad and I were booked
for 18 holes. It started raining and I was getting cold.
Dad had an umbrella. I still played. Not long after the
rain stopped we were already at the 18th hole.
Dad and I drove back home and we were both starving.

Overall it was a good game of golf I have never been the
that course so it was a bit of a surprise I wish we hired a
golf cart because it was a lot of walking with a trundler.

Tuakana teina day!

           Tuakana Teina Day!
    Wednesday 19 September 2018

Walt Ako/learning from each other and learning with each other.

We went to Room 3 for Tuakana teina day. Mrs Fepulea'i was
telling some stories about her sister in a earthquake. Mrs
Gormly showed us a video of how to make a earthquake
proof house that is made from a box. So we were put in
our groups and we tried to make a earthquake proof house
from a milk for schools box. Our group planned the house
on paper for a model to copy. Once we complete our paper
model we got a box and started on our house. We put little
inflatable packaging inside our box for a little airbag.
Then we went outside with Mrs Gormly to test a normal
box to see how it goes she put her phone on top with an
app that can detect movement. So we went back to our box
to finish. After lunch I was not here so the rest of my group
finished it.

Boxing Pax feedback

      Boxing Pax feedback.

Walt learn how to box using the 3 commandments.
When I first went to boxing I thought we were going to punch some bags but I realised it was more of a discipline kinda way. So I thought to myself this might be fun. So I wanted to go and I was right it was fun in a way. First my gloves were sweaty and I wanted to quit but I did not give up and I learnt self discipline.
The three commandments
I will have respect to my coach, my peers and the sport of boxing
Discipline I will have discipline to turn up to every boxing session and give my 100%
Safety I will not cause harm to others and only practice boxing in a safe environment under the guidance of a coach.

I would love to do this again!

Ms Bracey gave us 1 piece of magazine paper.
Then she gave us some scissors. She told us to fold it into a
triangle then told us to cut the oblong shape off.

Firstly, she gave us instructions to make a chatterbox.  
So we observed the information of how to make a chatterbox,
so we can have fun.

Secondly,  we made our chatterbox toy.
We followed the instructions to make a chatterbox.
I looked at Milan's chatterbox to observe more information.

Lastly, we played with our new paper chatterbox toy,

It looked like a monsters mouth.

Hi my name is Joshua and I am going to
explore the dormant volcano Rangitoto.
The first thing I need to do is
Get a survival kit in case it erupts on me.
The next thing is food in case I get hungry.
But there is a naughty side of me I
blamed my friend for lighting a fire on
I just turned ten and I got a bike for my
After golf practice I went to the dormant
volcano to have an adventure.
But I forgot my food so I had to survive
all by myself.
I was so scared I tripped on a stone. My
knee was bleeding. So I got my first aid kit
out of the survival pack and put a bandaid
on my knee. It was getting dark and I was
getting hungry so I got my pocket knife
and went hunting. An hour later I found
a pig and when I was going to kill it the
pig talked to me!? I was going to run
away but then he said ´Stop! Can you
help me? I am under a curse I really need
your help I need a potion that can turn me
back to human.´well okay. What is the
potion´ One spider eye one rabbet leg
one donkey heart and dog spit.
´ummmm´ good bye´ wait. Where did you
So when I went to find the ingredients for
the potion. The ground started to rumble
so I got the pig and went to my boat and
sailed away till it was safe. Just when the
volcano was going to erupt a earthquake
happened so I got an underwater breathe
mask and went under water. Then when the
earthquake ended I thought I was safe but
the volcano was still erupting.
I was very scared Because the water was
not safe It was starting to get hot so I got
out of the water and sailed away with the
pig.     Then I saw the sky tower fall!.

FLIP Financial Literacy in Primary
PWC Price Waterhouse Coopers

When Price Waterhouse Coopers came to school we learnt about banking, identity and trust
Their name were Anibell and Richard. They handed out cards and books. The first card said who would
you trust? I said My mum My dad and My best friend Milan. The second card said what do want to
save up for? I wanted a pool table and it said how much is it worth and how much are you going to
save up for?

Week 2 PWC.

Gas trap/making a cloud

Yesterday 26th July 2018 Room 8 did a science experiment on
First we looked at a video about, can you touch a cloud?
His name was Doug. He showed us a video inside the video
about touching a cloud. First the video is about a man
skydiving into a cloud. It was wet because it absorbs
water from
sea,creeks,lakes and ponds.

Secondly, we did the experiment we got into groups
And got a jar with a lid
and some hot water
and a guide to see if it works
the guide had words on it and we have to read it through the jar
with the hot water and steam it it.

so now I know how the water cycle works.
the clouds absorb water from the sea,creeks,lakes and ponds
just like the hot water in the jar experiment
