Family Night

On Saturday the 5th of December I Seini-Mino came to school. You would think It was weird for me to come to school on a Saturday but wait I was not the only child here there was more kids guess who it was? It was the extension group.

I was here because it was ROW11 (Rock Our World Round11) I was also here for a video confrence. I was set in the E-learing room to go I was sitting next to Toreka watching the other schools from all around the world. They had been talking about tolerance I found there answers very interesting.

"Oh No" It was our turn I was very calm. It had started and I had sat like a statue well almost The person we had to talk to was Carolane Mc Guire. It was amazing because her boss was Will Smith how cool would that be. Okay back on to the video confrence Moses had done a Mihi in Moari. Carolane and one of her students asked questions about tolerance to us. Only Two of us had to answer and that was Paulitia and Sela. They had pretty great answers while I thought.

The video confrence was only about 20 minuets or so. So it was nearly finished I actually thought it would be an hour. On to my favourite part Leoden and Blessing had to say what there best part of ROW11 was. They said that they liked eating the food and cooking also Blessing said that he liked how people changed during ROW. We finally said the beat we have been learning from the kids of America. The beat was Fantastic but I think I could have done better.

Our video confrence had ended and that was also the end of ROW11 I really enjoyed myself this year in extension I cannot wait till next year.

Trip To Tamaki College

It was Tuesday the 1st of December and I Seini-Mino had organised a trip for my whole class to go to Tamaki Collage. I had asked my mum which was the Principal if my class could come to her Collage. She said yes so I had to organise it with the deputy Principal It all got organised so on Tuesday we went.

The first thing we done was sports I had a great time we played a game were you had to spin around a bamboo stick five times and run around the cones then back to your team. Our team done alright we ended up coming 2nd so it wasn't bad. This was my favourite game it was called fresh it was a bit like tiggy the only difference was that you had to say, "I am fresher than you." So if they said that you had to run back to base. All my class had a fun time playing that game it was probably my best.

Science was amazing we learned facts. Also we done an experiment I got scared because it involved fire. It was really scary but we also did rotations around the class room I done an experiment with milk and food colouring it looked fantastic it was like I was in a dream world
I also enjoyed myself at Science.

Next was Cooking that was amazing we had cooked Nachos my group had to get mince and all the ingredients from the bench. We poured the mince into the frying pan and cooked, "Ouch" I said as a bubble from the frying pan hit my hand. Next we poured in the Tomato Paste and onions they cooked really well It looked like a red river . almost ready I said as Mrs Heka the cooking teacher was turning off our stove. They were finally ready. They tasted very good with a touch of sour cream. I enjoyed myself a lot
Thank you mum.

Hello again my name is Seini-Mino today I am going to talk about the lost city of Pompeii which is now Italy. I found out so much about about this lost city. I didn't even know that this little city existed!

I learnt facts and information about Pompeii. This is a good piece of information I had learnt, A volcano had been in this little city and all of the people did not know it was a volcano . This Mountain was called Mt Vesuvius.

Mt Vesuvius blew up in 79 AD ( AD means after Jesus was born)and everybody in the city were covered up in volcanic ash and acid that came out of the volcano. The people were turned in to stone in there exact position. In fact the volcano now is split in to Two it was One big mountain but when the volcano blew up it got split up in to Two.

These are some of the facts I had learnt: Pompeii existed 1700 years ago.
All of the people were completly turned to stone.
Pompeii was ruled by the Romans.

Thank you for reading my blog about Pompeii

My Favourite Song

My favourite song is Phantom Of The Opera sang by Emmy Rossum and Gerald Butler. I like how they sing different notes like high and low mostly high notes are in the song.You should listen to it to see for your self. Also they have expression in there voice when they are singing.

You don't expect a little Nine year old girl like me to like Phantom Of The Opera. To be honest I think this song is very interesting. My body shakes when I listen to it and I get goosebumps to I don't know why I get those reactions. The song can be scary sometimes but it only scares me a little.

Sorry I only have a little bit of paragraphs I might write more next week but this is all I can do today.

Immersion Assembly

"Whats that smell?" I said to myself as we were entering the hall for immersion assembly on the first day of Term Four. Ahhh it was Chicken wings and Sausages. "What a crazy idea" I thought to myself . I finally found out why they were cooking Sausages and Chicken Wings. The topic was Food Glorious Food. As I turned around I found out that Toreka had a Sausage I felt really hungry.

Some Mexican people came up on to the stage moving around around and shaking to some Mexican music. I realized who they were it was team three. They made me want to dance. "YUM" as I was chewing on a corn chip with some dipping from Ms Garden which was wearing a sombrero. "Yay" they brought up a pinata "I'd love to watch this" I said . As soon as they started hitting the pinata I started to laugh so hard my stomach was getting sore.

Peace and quiet as Ms Squires came up wearing a gee holding a Japanese pot with some patterns . Wow I was surprised because none of the other teachers weren't dressed like Ms Squires. It was like I was in a magical world of tea.

We just ran out of time to give out the Chicken Wings it was like a bomb was going to explode but it didn't. Hooray assembly was over and we got to learn about our new topic Food Glorious Food. I had wonderful day.

School Sweet School

I took a deep breath in as I was entering school. Well off I went to see if things were still the same they all looked exactly the same. I was really surprised because of our new topic Food Glorious Food.

I set of to class and met my class mates we talked for a while and finally Ms Squires came and opened the door to the classroom. I couldn't believe it.It was exactly the same too. I asked Ms Squires do we have to wear our hats my friends then said "NO". I actually liked wearing hats but it made your head itchy that was the only thing I hated about hats well we wore bucket hats.

I just felt like moving around and jumping because I was so happy I squeezed my friends arm. I felt energetic,happy also.

I had a nice first day at Point England School.

Last Day of Term 3

I liked the last day of term three. It was fun because me Toreka, Mubasshira and Aidan got to clean up the classroom and had to help Ms Squires finish the food. We stayed there all lunch time we also told jokes and we laughed so hard our stomachs were starting to hurt well only some of us like Toreka I made her laugh all the time. I was amazed because everyday at the end of the term Ms Squires had to stay at school and clean up the classroom. We were are a pretty good help. "Ring" the bell went and we were sad because we thought we had finished but we hadn't. We had to wipe around the computers . I really liked the last day of term three. By Seini-Mino

Lightly Rose Part 2

Lightly Rose set of for her journey at dawn in a strange town. She met a lady in a cloak and when she said "Hello" she felt a tingly sensation on her ankle. The lady said kindly would you like me to take you through our town. Lightly Rose made it though the town and asked would you want to come with me on my journey to find my mum the lady replied that would be very nice. After a few years later they had gone everywhere in the whole world. Lightly Rose was shocked her mum was no where. The lady had never seen Lightly Roses face until she took her cloak off and revealed herself to Lightly Rose she saw Lightly Roses eyes they were yellow exactly like her eyes were. The lady had a fuzzy sensation on her foot. Then she noticed Lightly Rose from all those years ago she left her with the king and queen . Then the lady said what is your name Lightly Rose she said. The lady said I have a confession to make I am your mum Lightly Rose. She was so happy she did not even notice she was travelling with her mum.

Immersion Assembly

The prince said,"Where is my princess " ahhh I said in my head Cinderella. I wondered who was the prince I said, "Who is the prince" lucky guess it was Mr Burt.

Then he shouted, "come on up team 3". Team three did a little act of Cinderella. Miss Garden looked like she had a wedding dress on. Miss Garden came up on to the stage with a broom that had Brad Pitt on it they were all fighting over the broom. Until Mr Burt said to Miss Garden, "Are you my princess Oh No you wear gumboots."

Mr Burt said, " Come up team 4." The most favourite character I liked was The Pied Piper of Hamlin which was Ms Squires. She asked us can you guess what I did. I wondered what she did.

Finally It was the E-learning team. It was funny because Mrs Tele'a was a very funny evil queen I laughed in my head.

Lightly Rose Part One

Once upon a time in a kingdom far far away there lived a king and queen and they desperately wanted a child. One day the queen was staring out on to the land and there happened to be a lady walking in a cloak with a baby and she knocked on the door and left the baby there then vanished. The queen rushed to the door and saw the baby, she picked it up and looked into its eyes and noticed a strange colour for eyes, they were yellow. The queen looked around and went back inside to show the abandoned baby to the king. The king was amazed and noticed the same things that the queen noticed. So a few years passed and the baby grew up.The queen and king named the baby Lightly Rose because her eyes were shining like light and her lips were as red as a rose. On Lightly Roses 19th birthday they told her the story about when she was little and how they took her in. She was shocked and told the king and queen she was going to set off on a journey to find her real mum.
At dawn she quietly sneaked out of bed and packed her stuff then set off for her journey.

The Video Conference With Hamish Campbell

This morning we had a video conference with one of the most famous Geologist in Auckland  and he is a research scientist and works for GNS (Geological Nuclear Sciences) in Auckland. His name is Hamish Campbell I kind of didn't know what he was saying because he was speaking so fast. I understood some of the words.

 Hamish then told us about the earthquake in Fiordland which was on the July of 16th and lasted 30 seconds and no one died! and it was 7.6. magnitude and it was the biggest earthquake in the world in 80 years. Hamish also told us that the epicenter was the point of an earthquake.

Its really interesting because in 1976 in Tangshan that a earthquake happened during 4 am in the morning and 242,000 people died and it was only fifteen seconds. 

He told us that the Pacific plate moved up and the Australian plate moved under I was really amazed. He also told us that the epicenter which is the point on the earthquake was on Resolution Island. I really feel sorry for Joan Wiffen because Hamish Campbell just said to us that she has past away. Joan Wiffen was a New Zealand paleontologist and found the first dinosaur bone.

I enjoyed myself. Thank you to for the picture.

Thank you to Hamish Campbell and Diana- Grace  and Te Papa Museum.

The Allosaurus is a dinosaur whose name means Strange Lizard and who lived in the Jurassic period. It was a meat-eater and its size was 12 meters long. It was Lizard hipped or Saurischian.

The Allosaurus had short arms which ended in three curved pointy fingers to eat its prey and to hold its prey. It had 2 powerful legs to support its weight and help it run fast at about 30 km an hour. The tail of a Allosaurus was very long to help it balance. The feet of an Allosaurus were fat and its toes had sharp claws. To attack its prey and rip off the skin and meat.

The location of a Allosaurus is North America.

I think Tonga is a beautiful country, and it is interesting that one of the most beloved queens of Tonga which was queen Salote has a girls' school named after her and even her own memorial hall.
The king of Tonga is king George Tupou the V and the royal family has their own private burial grounds in Nuku'alofa.
On Sundays it is very quiet because all businesses are closed and most people go to church.
It is normally hot,sunny,humid so people don't actaully have to wear jumpers.
My family and I go to Tonga every year and I enjoy seeing my grandmother, cousins and family but I feel sad when we have to go back to New Zealand but I don't feel very sad because the planes are a bit fun and I'll have to wait another year till I go back.

My Friends

My lovely friend Toreka, she is nice and she makes me laugh
but she makes me laugh all the time mostly. We have the same favourite colors too which is Green,Yellow,Blue. Me and Toreka
are the same age and we kind of don't the same things because Toreka wants to be a scientist when she grows up and I want to be a engineer and thats why we are not the same. But Toreka plays netball and I have never seen her play but I think she is a good netball player.

My other friend Mubasshira is very kind she makes me laugh but I make her laugh all the time (I think) and she is older then me because she is ten Anyway her favourite colors are Blue,Pink,Purple. Mubbasshira is a very helpful friend because she has books I can read if I get bored and she has refill in her bag if I need to write something down.

Here is my other friend Ala she is kind and her favourite coulor is PURPLE but she also helps me with my writing because she gives me lots of good ideas. She also plays netball and rugby but I think she is a very good rugby player and a very good netball player.

Immersion Assembly

"Ahhh" as Mr Burt ran in as cracker the cavemen and he said "I am looking for hipslophodons" so he dragged a person to the front and said "yummy oh but I need two" so he grabbed another person and pulled that person to the front.It was funny then he told the two people to go back.

Mr Burt said "Welcome to team one." They had to show us a little clip with dinosaurs. The movie ended and the teachers put up a sign to say dinosaurs still excised.

Mr Burt said "We are studying dino-might in term two so welcome team two." Team two was doing a rap to a little clip It was hilarious how they moved.

Mr Burt said "Give it up for team three ". Team three had a movie showing and at the same time the teachers were going around talking to kids and saying "have you found my bone" it was a bit crazy.

Finally Mr Burt said "Welcome to team four". Team four had to show us a movie but before the movie Mrs Nua came up and said "Hello Point England it would be good if some of you looked at the section in the library 560.

Now we got to watch the movie. The movie was set in the library. The teachers were reading dinosaur books and fell asleep, They went back to prehistoric times it was really interesting and amazing.

Finally it was the E-learning team they sang a song it was funny  they even had dancers , the team two dancers.

It was end of assembly I felt excited and happy because it was cool.

Camp Aratika

Last month on March Point England school had there year five and six camp at our school on our big field in tents.Then suddenly the bell rang we met our leader and our teacher.

The first activity my group had was camp cooking.The teacher who was there was Whare Warane.
she said we were "cooking damper and it was a kind of bread". After that she quickly said the instructions and said "clean your hands in the blue bucket and get a bamboo stick from the red bucket. Then finally we got given our piece of damper to twirl around our bamboo stick then put over the fire. We had a barrier it was a square around the fire It took a long time for my damper to cook I sat there for along time until Whare Warane said "your damper is cooked" I was happy because I wanted to eat.

We had rock climbing the next day, it was fun because they had walls with shapes,sea creatures,king Kong, jack and the bean stalk,Indiana Jones. I climbed them all but never made it up to any of them but it was enjoyable.

On Friday we came on a bus to the lagoon my group the Responsibles rushed of on to the hydro-slide first it was fun and I was dripping with water all over me. I thought I was going to drown but I didn't it was scary but fun because hole was big and black and I thought it was scary but really fun.

I felt good after all the things we did at camp it was FUN and was as fun as a monkey who go a bunch of bananas. I was happy at camp and excited.

We do this because so that we can hear what other schools have made in other countries.

Pacific Tongan beach

In the holidays I went to Tonga with my family. In Tonga we went to the beach and I got sun burnt and it hurt a lot and my skin was peeling which was yucky. The waves were huge and if
you were on the sand the were on the sand the big waves would hit you like starfish coming towards you and little pebbles. Sometimes it would hurt your tummy like when you're diving
in to the pool the wrong way. We ate at the inside the beach because we couldn't be bothered walking up getting the food because our togs were full of water but my mum and aunty got the
food. In Tonga they have no changing rooms but I think there is changing rooms but they are
a bit yuck. So we had to change under a huge tree with our towel over us it was kind of embarrassing.
The next week we went to the same beach because my family and my grandma like that beach and it is called Kelet'i it is next to another beach called Vatogo we stopped going there because there were a lot of rocks and the water was pretty rough but people still go there.
At the beach when we went there it was raining and the wind was blowing really hard and it was cold and freezing I felt a little scared because I thought there was sharks but there are no sharks only in a another village. But there were little fish swimming around and biting you.
It kind of hurt well it hurt for me but for my aunty it didn't hurt at all. I had to hold on to my aunty or uncle and my mum and cousins because the water was so deep. Some people got out because it was freezing cold and their lips were turning purple so they got out
and one of my cousin's were so cold they went out on to the sand and covered themselves with
there pink towel completely so we had to go back home because some of my other cousin's
got really cold so we had to go home. The End
