Netbooks Reflection.

At the start of the year I was so happy and I couldn’t wait to bring my new netbooks. I was so nervous and so scared because I didn’t know how to use the netbook and I didn't know what do. I needed to make myself click on things because I didn't want something to happen.

Now I can use my learning tool and I can type fast and it is so amazing. I am so exciting because I can do anything on my netbook. My learning tool helps me find the answers and it helps me do my worked and get it finished and it’s make my brain be brave.

I am very happy because the netbook is very special to me. Also my hands doesn't hurt when I type like they did when I had to write with a pencil.  It is easier to publish my work to my blog now too.

Some people find the netbook distracting which can make it difficult for people. We have to remember to charge our netbooks at night if you take it home with you which can sometimes be hard to remember.

What I’m looking forward to next year’s learning and trying out new things on my netbook. I am looking forward to seeing and work with my new teacher.

Typing Challenge

The Lego story

The Lego company started in the old days, because the clothes and the houses with the wires were old. It happen in Switzerland and the characters were Oli, the father and his son Godfrey and they stared at the 1932.

Oli lost her wife and he started to make toys with wood, he had four boys and they helped him, but the little one was helping Oli lots.

Oli was trying to find a name and it was Leg Godt and that meant play well but Oli wanted a shorter name and he turned around and he saw the name called Lego, so he chose to use that.

Oli and Godfrey worked in the workshop and sold the toys, he was making toys until he gave them to the shops for some food and the children to be happy.

Oli passed away, so the son looked after the toys factory. My favourite part was when they built their own toys with the wood.

Report Film Festival.

At ten o’clock on Wednesday 14 November, the whole school went to Sylvia Park on a bus. It was so cool inside the bus, the bus was long because it was a double bus.

When we got to Sylvia Park, we made 2 lines per class in the carpark before we went inside. When we were inside we all went and found a chair to sit on. When we all found our seats., the Manaiakalani Film Festival started. It was so warm inside the theatre, I was so happy. We were so lucky because we got to sit in the luxury seats at the back.

The first movie was Room 3’s movie, 3 words. I really liked our movie because it was so cool. Mrs Williams, Mrs Tui and I were sitting on one chair. There was something at the back of our chair and I didn’t know what it was so I asked Mrs Williams, “Mrs Williams, what’s this?” “Push that button” she replied so I did and when I did the seat went up. It was so cool.

Our Movies were so amazing and I really like it. After the film festival finished, we all went outside and lined  up then we all walked to our bus, we went to the back and it was so cool when you go and sit at the back because when the bus turn then we will go to the other side. We were so lucky because when we come from school to go to Sylvia Park room 4 was at the back and we were at the front but we wanna go to the back, but right now we were walking faster because we thought that room 4 is at the back but they didn’t came to the bus already then we all ran to the back and we were so happy and so excited.

My favourite things was our movies because I was in the movies and it was so amazing movies.

My Holidays.

            In the holidays me and my family went to my cousin’s house and slept over. I had a late night over there with my cousin, we played lots of computer games and it was so fun.

When we woke up we had breakfast, then we packed our bag to go to the Mangere pools, but it was closed so we went to the Papatoetoe pools, I thought it was better. When we walked inside we got changed into our swimming togs, me and my two cousins were so excited that we hopped in the pool straight away. We were swimming like pretty mermaids then our parents called us and said “come and have a snack”, it was yummy strawberry ice-cream.

We had one hour left then we had to go back to my cousin’s house. When we got there we played games outside in their backyard, while our parents cooked the dinner. We were so, so, so TIRED!! that we came inside to sleep and our parents called us to go and eat the dinner but we were so tired so we carried on sleeping and we didn’t eat our dinner.

THE END!!!!!
