Learning

Greetings everybody, do you like learning? Well I am going to tell you why I do. My favourite learning subject is Reading. Reading to me is like an adventure the only thing is that the adventure is right where you are sitting and in your mind.
That is one of the reasons why I like learning and reading.


Electronic learning (on a computer) can be very fun. The fun thing about this is that you can draw on the computer. Just not any picture you can draw, it has to be something related to the topic that your class is learning about. Like room 17 we were learning about the Treaty of Waitangi.

Learning is really important to me because maybe one day it could help alot.

This animation is about signing the Treaty of Waitangi. It takes you way back in the olden days.

The Highlight's

Hello everybody,I am going to tell you about my highlight's of the term. In fact I think this term has gone by really quick.

The highlight of the term for me was... Feeling like what it would be being a year six. I have enjoyed my couple of weeks here at Point England school, It was really great being a BIG year six. I just can't wait until next term, I wonder what other fun things we will do next term? I think we will be studying about food next term.

The video conference with D'Wayne Edwards was so cool. D'Wayne Edwards is the one of the head designer's for Nike. That video conference was amazing. He encouraged us and he never gave up he kept on trying and trying that's what he told us. That really inspired me to do better in everything.

Camp was actually the was the most enjoyable highlight this term. I felt like what it would be if I was Captain, yes I said it, a captain. When I found out I was captain I was so shocked with amazement,after I found out I thought I would be ready and show all the people I can be a great captain. Those three whole days being captain was a dream,that was just a privilege.

My goals for next term is to do well in my Writing and my Maths. I think I can achieve them by the end of next term.I have had a great term here and I can't wait until next term.

D'Wayne Edwards

As you are all about to hear it, the extension group and I had a video conference with...D'Wayne Edward's, how cool is that! If you don't know D'Wayne Edwards he is one of the head designer's for Nike (the shoe design company), If you are shocked I was at first too.

The video conference was on Friday, wait for it.... after school! I know it's just not fair. That wouldn't stop me though. I come in here as on as possible, and we were on in ten minuets.

We had started and I sat there listening very well. He told us that he had kept a card in his wallet, which his mum gave to him when he was little, he is too emotional to read it because his mum had passed away. The card talked about believing in yourself and never give up.

D'Wayne told us his life story. When he was seventeen he entered a drawing competition and he came first, the real sad thing was that the prize was a job and the managers of the competition said that he was to young


That video conference told me that to never give up. I can't wait until the next video conference with D'Wayne.

2010

2010 feels like a NEW start. I feel like I am still in room15 but I am still getting use to being with my new teacher, the one the only Miss Garden. I have been with Miss Garden before so that's good.



I am in room17 with all my old friends,that is the thing I like the most. I have made brand new friends in room17 though. I really am enjoying time with my new friends.

Room17 is cool I am a year six now, I have been wanting to be a year six for years finally I am.
Year six feels like you are top of the world not really but close too.

Its pretty cool me and my best friend Toreka got a new job, guess what it is? The tuck shop monitors. Me and Toreka applied for the job last year and we got it. I really like it , the one thing that is cool is that you are doing it with your friend. We are really enjoying it both.

I am glad that I am year six now. I like the new year, I also like the fresh start that we have all made.

A Hurtful Moment

It was Tuesday the 9th of March, and I was playing outside until.... OUCH! a nail had gone threw my foot,well not really threw my foot I just stood on it. It was as deep as the deep blue sea.

My foot felt as if it was breathing , was this the end.Hhm!, I am alive I had shouted at the top of my lungs.I stood back up with my head high still limping. and walked back inside my mums office where I shouldn't have stayed all along.

Today after going to the doctors, I am still limping It really hurts but I can handle a little pain.
Its not a emergency, I am fine for now.

Van Gogh


What a tragic artist Van Gogh was, his feelings we could reorganize in his paintings all the sadness inside his heart. Van Gogh had used dark colours when he was sad, and bright colours when he was in a happy mood but the sad thing was he never smiled, He expressed his feelings though his own paintings .

Nobody thought his paintings were good enough the people said bad things about his paintings,Van Gough had a sickness which was depression. One day he was so mad he had cut off his own ear, It was really sad because nobody understood him.


This is me sketching one of his self portraits.

Lately, our class has been learning about the famous artist, Van Gogh. In his pieces of art,its as if the colours dance across the canvas like flickering fire, burning in the landscape. You can see a sense of movement in the impressionest's art.
