CyberSmart is about being safe when we are online.

There are consequences, if you are not on the right thing. That means you are not being Cybersmart.

When you are CyberSmart, you can search for things using the Internet, and you can bookmark things for you to go on some other day.

Duffy Theatre

During a cold rainy day, we all went to the hall for a nice, entertaining Duffy Show. Introducing themselves to us, we all said hi back to them. The show was about to start! It finally started. There were a lot of Scenes, and my best one was when it was Emmy’s birthday. There were a lot of characters and the best character of all, was Scruffy.

The show was hilarious and funny! It was so fun. Hopefully they come next time.

Netball With Liz

On Thursday, we were going to play Netball, but it was so hot that I was burning with flames. Hot, hot, hot, is all I could moan about. Dripping sweat falling from my face, downwards.

Lining up to play Netball, we all got ready to go to the courts. Waiting not so patiently, I said to myself, sweat, sweat, sweat yuck! I wandered when will the sun cool down.

Arriving to the netball courts, we met a coach named Liz. She was our tutor for netball! Liz taught us some skills and drills on how to play this sport! After that it was time to play four corners.

Four corners, was kind of like netball, but it’s just that the hoops were dots. We got in to teams and played for the rest of our session. When this had finished we headed back to the classroom for morning tea.

I enjoy my time playing netball! It was a lot of fun, that I can not wait to go to another session with Liz

This term, in maths, we are learning about statistics. As part of our learning, we are examining data related to our health. The first part of our examination we collected data (information) about the food we ate for one week (2/2 to 9/2).

The graph (or chart) shows how much I ate from 6 major food groups.

The Treaty of Waitangi

In Room 19, we have been learning about the Treaty of Waitangi. I would like to tell you a little bit about The Treaty of Waitangi.

The Treaty of Waitangi was written as an agreement between the Maori people and Queen Victoria. This Treaty was signed at the Waitangi Bay of Islands, on the 6th of February 1840.

Because Queen Victoria lived in England, William Hobson, the Governor, signed it for her. The Treaty was signed by 34 chiefs on behalf of the Maori people.

They wrote the Treaty to solve problems new Zealand was facing. At that time it included wars between tribes using muskets, fights amongst sailors and Europeans, shortage of land for new settlers, and fears that other countries would take over.

Because of the Treaty, it gave Queen Victoria the right to rule New Zealand. She could also buy land that Maori wanted to sell. But the Maori would check if the things that the Queen was doing, was reasonable.

Start to the term

Boy, I slept badly last night! All night I tossed and turned just like a dog. Twisting and turning, moaning and groaning!

Waking up from a terrible sleep, I hoped out of my bed and got ready for a wonderful start to the term at school. Getting ready to go to school, I wondered what class I was going to be in. I was HOPING to be in a different class instead of being in the one that I was in last year!

Arriving to Pt England school, I was looking around just thinking that I was new. Seeing all my friends with excitement, I hugged them happily. Now it was time to see what class I was in.

In the street, Mrs Nua was going to tell us what class we were all in, so I waited for her to say what my room number was. Room 19 was the class that she said I was in. Boy, was I glad!

I met new class mates and our new teacher, and worked and worked and worked. It was so great on the first day! I ENJOYED it!

The first day of school had ended, so all of the students went back home.What a fabulous start to a new year!
