Dear diary

Task description: This is a Task just like with afu and me. But I am writing from me and afu's perspective. also if you are wondering why afu has a little bit it is because he does not have time Because he is a navigator and navigators have to stay up all night and day. This is talking about what me and afu might be doing during our ride to samoa or new Zealand.

Castaway Island

 Walt: Write from the 1st person.

“WHAT?” I said loudly, I look around and I see a lot of sand and water. “Where am I” I said, I try to look around if there were any people around to help . I start to panic, I have no Idea where i have landed. I tried to pull my air boat back to the sea but it pops on a sharp piece of stone.

I tried to gather everything that I could see to make shelter “ Maybe I could make shelter out of this popped boat”. I found flax and from my school experience I knew that to make rope you need flax. I start weaving and it is starting to look  more like rope. I use the rope/flax to hold the sticks that I got together. I made the roof out of fronds (Big leaves) . I was thinking “ what should I do with this boat to make it useful again” so then I had an Idea, I would use it as my blanket and the rest of my leaves as a bed, “Uhh Yay I'm finished” I said exhaustively.

“Ohh man i’m starving” I said with a little echo following. I tried to sharpen a stick with a shell to make a hook to catch some fish.  “Ouch” I said curiously, A coconut just fell from a tree and dropped on my head. I was thinking how could I cook this fish, “wait i can make a umu (hangi) but how do I make fire” I start to gather some sticks and some grass to make a fire. It is not as easy as you think. “Man this is nice” I said with excitement.

How can I make a signal for people to contact me? Then it hit me I would make a fire with a lot of smoke. I grabbed some greens (fronds,grass, smaller leaves ) and some sticks. I start rubbing the dry sticks together but it would not work I would kept trying and trying and then suddenly some smoke started to come up I blew on it and… “yes, a fire”. I put the leaves on the fire and some smoke accidentally came up my nose.  I made a help sign by drawing on the sand with a stick and I waited and waited.

“ what is that loud sound” I said curiously. I waved my hands up in the air and they saw the smoke and the help sign. They came down to the rescue and I climbed on the ladder that came down. “ Thank you so much” I said happily “ I can finally have some real food like KFC”.

Task description: This writing is about me ( The castaway) but it was not real it is a narrative. it is telling how I survived on a mysterious island. It is talking about what technology I used to survive and it goes with My term topic "Now that's Thinking!" which is a technology topic.

Immersion assembly

WALT: using exciting language

Now That's thinking? You might be thinking, what does that mean? well I am going to tell you. “Now That’s thinking” is what our school topic is this term. This morning our school had an assembly well not a normal assembly an immersion assembly we have one every term on the first day back from the holidays. We have it so we know what we are learning about, but also in a fun way and our term topic (Now that’s thinking ) is learning about the history of using technology.

As I said this terms topic is “ Now that’s thinking” but I never told you what all the teams are doing.  Each team showed us what they are learning by a movie or actions, they were all great and helpful. Team 1-3 are learning about kites and matariki, and  team 5 (the seniors) they are learning how they can change the things around them and make it better and also there topic is bob the builder. Mr burt was talking about old computers and he was showing us the old and the new technology that Pt England has been using.

Finally team 4 ( My team) we are learning about the technology maori people used before the europeans came to New zealand.  How we presented what we were learning was by a movie and in that movie showed a lot of the teachers Ideas and what they think we should learn about this term. The first Idea came from Mr Goodwin and you might already know that Ideas from him are kind of crazy because of what happened last term…. Eating worms. The second idea was a lot better, it was learning about things in the past and how has it changed since. All of the teachers were looking around and found books that told them when things were created. They were so amazed by how many years it had been since people created things.

What do I want to do for this term? Well I want to learn about my culture (Maori) and find research of how they lived and managed to survive. Also I want to learn about how they made their houses and also I want to learn what they did before pre european. I hope we also do more drawing  because looking at our class there is a lot of old art. It would also be cool to not look at just team 4’s term topic, we could also make stuff like technology and how to make our environment more clean.

I think that the new term topic is going to be extraordinary! Because there is a lot of history and stuff we didn't know about maori people. We might even get to touch and look at some old technology since our theme is about technology and history. I hope we get to make the same technology that maori used to survive with.

Task description: this task is all about this term and our school term topic. we are learning about old technology and history about new Zealand. this writing is about our immersion assembly and what we are learning.

Free writng

When Olivia ( Me) was young I would always go to the arcade and play PAC man it was my favorite game to play. All the I would go and walk down the street and play some PAC man. It was my favorite game until everything started to change My whole life. as I grew older the game would get older and older. I tried to go to the arcade Now that I am 24, but the game was gone.

I was looking and looking all over for it but I would never find it. I looked outside, behind games and even in the toilet. I was so worried . growing up as a child it would be the game that kept me satisfied for hours and hours. I would always want it at my house in my room but it was too expensive.

The next morning I got a surprise in my room I was so shook. I was so happy I cried, it was the best day of my life. "THE PAC MAN GAME !" I said with excitement. The owner of the arcade place set this all up. since I went to the arcade to play PAC man he watched me since he would see me with smiles and laughter. he would be sad if he took it away from me. THE END.

Task description: I decided to do free writing because I had nothing to do.  This writing is about this little girl named Olivia and I am playing her part. This story is about Olivia and her connection to the PAC man game and how her heart was heart broken when the the game was not there anymore .
