balls were very heavy that we can not throw it past the fouth line.

Then we tryed the lighter ball it was so eazy that we can past the fouth line.because the balls was 2kgs when i lifted it it felt so light to throw i neraly got disqualified because my My foot nearly went over the white line if it went over it will be a no throw.then i went to the back of the line and had another turn.with a slightly heavyer ball  i through the heavyer ball it nearly went over the fouth line.Some of my friends were happy because the ball nearly went over the fouth line.

The next rotation was tug of war. we had to get in our house colours my house colour was blue our fisrt match was with yellow and we won.then we played green we beat them to.Then we went to the finals with red it was a very tight game because they were pretty hard but their hands were burning our hands were burning to but we never gave up and we still played and won.  Becauase we had some pretty strong people.

Haast Eagle



Last Wednesday our whole school went to Sylvia Park to watch our manaiakalani movies.   The presenters had to come to school early because they had  to go Sylvia Park early so they could practice.  Then when the whole school got there I was so nervous because I was a presenter.  The presenters had to sit in the front row where all the other presenters were.  But some people had to present twice and me and Marika was one of those people who had to present twice.

The second time we presented was in front of three other schools and those schools were Tamaki Primary, Stone Field and Glenbrae.  We felt so shy but watching other schools manaiakalani movies was so amazing. When it played our class movie I felt so embarrassed  because I was acting in our class movie. People came up to me and said how awesome I was, it made me feel happy.

When the Manaiakalani Film Festival finished I walked out proud of myself we went back to school with the seniors. Because the rest of the presenters were presenting three times and we had no one  to go back to school with.  When we got to school heaps of people were asking us how did we go.  We felt so happy to be back at school with all of our friends.

With great joy the Greeks defeated the Persians at the battle of Marathon. Pheidippides was sent as a messenger to deliver the good news to the people of Athens.

Over rocky mountains Phidippides was running from Marathon to Athens to send a message to the Athens.   Philippidess never give up and he ran 42.2 kilometres. It was frustrating for Pheidippides to run the marathon because it was so cold and he had no water.

Arriving in Athens as Pheidippides shouted “joy, we won!” .  He then passed away because he had no water and no food.

The Olympic flame

The Ancient Greeks started the tradition of having an Olympic flame. In Olympia a sacred flame is lit by the sun's rays and stays alight until the games have ended. The flame symbolized a request for protection from Zeus and the athletes’ struggles for victory.

The modern flame symbolizes the light of the spirit, knowledge and life. To this day, the torch is still` lit in Olympia in Greece, then carried by a relay team, passing runner to runner, until it reaches the host-city of the games. There, the cauldron will be lit and stay alight until the closing ceremony.

Ancient Olympics

The Olympics began over two and a half  thousand years ago in Ancient Greece. In thoses days Greece was made up of several different States including Athens, Sparta and Corinth and they were often at war with each other.But when the games were on they held a truce. This great event was held at a place called Olympia and that why the games are called the Olympics.  They were held once every four years the honour of Zeus god of all the lords. Eventually ancient Olympics were abolished by the roman Emperor Theodosius who was a christian and did not like the games because they were detected to a pagan good the Olympics were always remembered of a symbol of human achievement and peace.

6 Thinking Hats

I learnt most about painting and my design.It was fun doing painting with miss king.

The best thing I enjoyed was vividering my work because it made my artwork look amazing.

What I found hard is when I did my paint I tried my hardest to paint inside the lines.

Next time I can do my art better by focusing and try my hardest and never giving up.

The most interesting thing. That I did was when I drew my dots for my stars.

I leant most about painting and my design.It was fun doing painting with Miss King.

Along the lonely road traveled a very broken old house.
Broken down houses were sleeping on a silent road.

Fiafia Night

On Fiafia
day when I walked onto the stage I felt so nervous, I had butterflies in my stomach. I wanted to run off the stage in front of thousands of our parents. But I did not want to let the whole team down.

I loved my costume because it is so funky that I did not even want to take it off. My costume was swag pants and a swag t-shirt  and my Jordan shoes. When I got into my clothes I felt cool.

The Flag

I think we should change the flag to a new flag so some countries do not think we are. Australia's.I like the flag  because of the silver fern and of the design. Also I like the flag because of the colours. It represents our nation
I think that we should change the flag because countries will call us Australia but we are not Australia we are New Zealand. The new flag emphasises our location in the South Pacific Ocean. It connects with the colours of the Union Jack and the current flag.
