My bee paragraph

WALT: use interesting vocab in our writing.
A bumble bee is harmless and a cute insect, It has six tiny legs and three body parts ( head l thorax and the body). Bumble bees help us and if we did not have bumble bees or other bees we would probably die. Their Is a queen and she has an important job because she stay’s in the hive all day and lay eggs. The other bees are called worker bees and they mostly do all the work, The worker bees clean the hives and make sure the hive is OK. Bees fly to a flower and most flowers that catch their eyes are mostly the purple,blue and yellow flowers, bees also drink nectar and  get pollen on its back and carry It to their hive.  There are over 20,000 species of bees and one that make a lot of that sticky good stuff is honey bees.
Task description: This task was to learn about bugs and all kinds of native things because our term topic is "Te Taio O Tamaki". Like my WALT we are learning to use describing vocab in writing.

who likes wetas

Task description: This presentation of all these people we don't know but except Stacey and Me of course. Also this task was to see weather they like wetas or not based on their perspective.

My created bug

A Grass Leaper can be a male or female if it is a male then it has a stinger on it’s butt. It lives in the grass but watch out it is camouflage so you might not see it. It is a bad and an unfriendly bug, it is like a mosquito it sucks your blood but it is just itchy it does not hurt. It is a native bug and it likes to stay in a kowhai tree.  

Task description: This task was about creating a bug and also a interesting fact a Spider is not a bug because bugs only have 6 legs if it does not have 6 legs then it is not a bug.

Ambassadors session out of school

Today was an extra special day. We had two presentations as Ambassadors and for one of them we got to go out of school. How Exciting is that. Also we got to have lunch there. They were so nice they laughed at our jokes and also gave us gift cards.

We had two taxis that arrived at our school to pick us up/drop us off. As we made our way to N4L ( Network 4 Learning) we met a lady and her name was Mrs Stuart.

We came out of our taxi's and it was freezing cold, I was so excited to go in mostly because it was cold but the next thing you know we were still outside. We first had a look at level one then we skipped to level 3 to have a special lunch. As we finished our lunch we were hoping that we did not burp while we were talking because of our healthy drink ( just kidding it was a fizzy drink don't tell my teacher "Shh").

We finally finished our food then we got ready to speak to the audience and also there were a lot of people it actually made me a bit nervous. But as we started to talk and introduce ourselves it made us feel a bit better when they laughed and clapped. when it came to the end we answered some of their questions and one question that Bethan said was " what do you guys actually do here" and we all started to laugh. As we laughed we stopped and listened to this woman ( I forgot her name) and she was saying that N4L is Network for learning and they help with our internet because if our internet is not working they try to make a way for it to work again.

Then we got up and thought we were going to go but we got stopped and then we got surprised because they gave us thank you cards. We opened our cards and got even more surprised when we saw a $30.00 gift card for the movies.  After that we got to see a cool thing it was a car stacker It is where you park your car then you swipe the card that you get to put your car inside , then the door closes and the car spins and then goes down like a elevator. But also If N4L is reading this on behalf of the Ambassadors we would like to say thank you to you for providing us some yum lunch and having to learn what you guys do to help our school's.

Overall My favourite bit there was eating their yummy lunch but I really loved the gift cards and also I already said this but I'm saying it again " Thank you".

How to ride a bike

WALT: present info in a interesting way

 Have you ever ridden a bike before?... During School? Well Me and my friends got pulled out of class to find out that we were ridding on our new bike track for a special bike lesson. We knew how to ride a bike but we still had to learn to walk beside it, check the brakes, wear proper foot wear and more.

Today I thought that I was in trouble but I wasn't. Thank the gods! We were actually pulled out by our teacher Mr Goodwin.  We were going to do a lesson on bikes and then ( here comes the fun part) we get to ride on our schools new bike track. We did our lesson but it was kinda boring but it was supposed to learn how to ride a bike.

All we did was talk about how to ride a bike and answering bike questions. Unfortunately I had to return my bike and get another one why? It was because the brakes on my other one did not work lucky I talked about it because if I didn't then I could not have stopped and I would of crashed. Then I had to check all of the things that I had to check before, again.

As we started to end our video we put the go pro on and then started to go on the bikes. As we were riding, at the start  Daisy ( my friend) was in front of me and she went on the wooden mountain ( I don't know what its called). Daisy stopped and said "oh I'm on it" but she was yelling and as I said she stopped and she made me fall off.

I really liked this lesson I think it was loads of fun I really recommend following these rules before riding because you might fall like I did. Over all I had  a lot of fun and I really enjoyed this lesson.

Year 5&6 camp 2017

Have you ever been on camp when you were a year ⅚? Well last week we went on our 27 annual year 5 and 6 camp ( I was a camp leader) and our weather was not very good to us. It was rainy and windy but we still behaved as normal, we also had to sleep in tents it felt like sleeping in a plastic bag ( Because it was so windy).

We have camp to show leadership and teamwork. Our camp is held at Pt England school on the big green fields and we also sleep in tents. We held our camp on march 8th, 9th and 10th it was only three days but those three days were awesome. The activities we did was youth town, kayaking, dance practice, bike track, get lost (amazing race kids version), free time, swimming and killer zone. Killer zone is to show how you talk to your group and how you contribute. All of the teams were Captains, President’s, Principals, Generals,Chief's and my group the best one, The Sheriff's.

My favourite part about camp was probably our camp concert. The camp concert was so cool seeing all of the items ( group dances). Also I loved Seeing all of the people smile and put on happy faces. The people who came first was the president's but I actually thought that the Sheriff’s would of won. Also I got nominated for the best dancers, but also I did not win my friend Amelia did and I am proud of her.

On behalf of the year 5 and 6 students we would like to say thank you to all our parents and whanau for  paying for us to go to camp. Also huge up’s to Mr burt for making this happen if it were not for you this wouldn’t all happen. Also I know our parents just wanted three days without their kids.

What I learnt at camp was to work with each other and talk as a group. I would really recommend having a camp at your school because it really shows leadership and how you work as a team. If you are a teacher reading this please start a camp for your students. It was really fun.

Task description: This writing was to explain to someone who knows nothing about camp or even doesn't know what camp even is. I really hope this inspires you to even have a camp at you school.


Today we had our 3rd visitors come to Pt England School for 2017.  You might be wondering 3rd I haven't even hear of the first or second one. Well that is because there is a lot of learning going around Pt England and I have not had any time to post anything about it. Well anyway today the visitors came from the U.S.A and two of them ( the two guys standing on the left) are the boss of all of the warehouses all around New Zealand. Isn't that cool. You can check out our photos from today's morning right here 


File:Wellington weta female.jpgWeta's are one of the most biggest insects on earth ( a huge spider). Also weta's love eating carrots and also cannot jump. They are also nearly extinct thanks to rats, and an alpine weta can freeze when it is in the winter. most of all the name is "wetapunga" and that means " the gods of ugly things".

Task description: these are ll facts about New Zealand weta and you might find them around your suburb. I had to show some facts about the weta that most people might not know and explain to them what a weta is and what it does and does not.

My native and non-native birds writing

We need more native birds because native birds are really important to NZ. Their are not that much native birds in tamaki and I think we need more because I think that tamaki is a good suburb. Native birds in tamaki would be better because it is making tamaki look beautiful and more clean to the environment.

haven't even seen one kiwi in tamaki so We need more kiwi’s in tamaki. Tamaki is a place where you don’t see that much kiwi’s in fact you don’t see any kiwi’s in Tamaki. Kiwi’s are the most important bird in New Zealand because they are our national bird.

We don’t need that much pigeons because we see them everywhere and when I mean everywhere I mean around New zealand. It would be good if there were less pigeons and more kiwis and New Zealand kaka. Having pigeons is not bad but also I would love to see some native birds in Tamaki.

I would love to have more kiwi’s and more native birds to be in tamaki but also pigeons are all around new Zealand so you can see them everywhere across New Zealand. Having kiwi’s and New Zealand kaka birds would be so cool and I would be so happy if that happy.

task description: This task is what is my favorite bird is and would I like to see it in east Tamaki. The other question was if their were a bird that I did not want in tamaki and swap with a Native bird.
