Zoo Trip!

Last Friday, rooms 7,9 and ten had the opportunity to go to the zoo by bus. There were two buses that the rooms could go in. Year 4's and 3's went in one bus and the year 5's and 6's in the other bus. When we arrived we had a quick morning tea break, I had some cheesy chips. Then we drank our milk and went to go see the giraffe's. Our first lesson was with James, or Jake. He taught us that when a giraffes tail is down then that means it is calm. It was amazing! You should come by the zoo some time to see all the animals. My favorite animal when I was at the zoo was Burma the Elephant. There was a new elephant there called Anajaleen.

How To Write A Procedural

Kia Ora everyone today, I have a procedural to present to you. It is about how to write a procedural. I wrote this in term two or one. I hope you enjoy it.

Kia Ora, and welcome to my procedural on how to write a procedural.

First you need to start with one step at a time. You need to be specific and say interesting words in your procedural. Before all of that though you, have to start with a greeting like how I started at the beginning. Then write what you are going to do your procedural about. Remember be specific about what you say in your sentences.

Secondly write about your subject or what your procedural is going to be about. Make sure if you have one idea then one paragraph, if you have another idea then another new paragraph. Also make sure that you don’t just write one sentence. Like I said before add some specific words and also add detail.

Thirdly or  lastly  write a conclusion, write  what was at the beginning but not to much. Also write what you think it’s good for, or something maybe in common. Then you are done. Thank you for reading my procedural.

2nd Place Winter Learning Journey!

In the holidays I registered for the winter learning journey. I did only some activities for the winter learning journey. When the holidays were over Rachel Williams came to Ruapotaka School to present the winners which are 1st, 2nd and third place. I came second place, my big brother Pupuke came first and my friend Riiana came third. People that also participated got a special certificate. The people that got those certificates were Dakbai and Robati. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place got special prizes. I got some chocolate's a rugby ball, mug and that's probably it. 1st place got so much sweets, throw over, beanie and many other things. 2nd place got nut chocolate, Milo a mug and a rugby ball. 3rd place got the same as me but not the rugby ball. Doing the winter learning journey was fun!!

The Time I Became An Author!

Last week on a Friday, Wednesday or Thursday room nine went to the library because my teacher Miss Riley had some release time for herself. We had to take our library book to the library book to change it or return it. Once we had got our library books we went to room four. Everyone else was there, but I was one of the last people to get out of the library. When I arrived my class and room ten were just playing games so I joined in as well. Mrs. Vickers my principal, soon told us to pack up the games and sit nicely on the mat. Mrs. Vickers said for me to stand up because I was going to be an author! Mrs. Vickers said that there is a permission slip that my parents need to sign. My piece of writing was about my holidays at the beginning of this year. This is it right here.

Hi and welcome to my recount about my holiday. I will be telling you one thing that made me smile, two things that I felt and lastly what I smelt. I am going to talk about the first week of the holidays on Sunday. Also where I went.

So firstly my uncle and my auntie said that we had to get up and get ready. They said that because we were going to a restaurant, a chinese restaurant. So when we were ready we went by transport which was a car. When we arrived we found a table and ordered what we wanted. I chose a kid lunch special. We went to a restaurant called Daikoku. We had to wait for our food but it was worth it.

Once the waiter was done with our food we ate and ate and ate. For the first course we got  delicious soup and some rice while we were waiting ,for dessert we had delicious ice cream. We also had prawns that were in yum yum sauce, it was yummy. That’s what made me smile, the food that we ate. When I saw what we were going to have my mouth was already watering. Luckily we ate because my stomach was growling.

What I smelt was mostly food because we were at a restaurant, so that was the main thing that  I smelt when I was there. I also smelt the burning fire and smoke when I first walked in. At first I blocked my nose but then I got use to it, so I stopped.

The two things that I felt was the heat of the fire lightly go on my cheek, and also the warmness on my whole face and hands. I also felt just a little bit hot because I had my jacket on so yeah. The second thing that I felt was the texture of the food and how soft it was. Also, when it was in my mouth I could taste and feel the hotness and the warmness. It was really hot sort of!

My conclusion - At the end of the day we just relaxed and watched t.v., also we had a very sore stomach, the next day. So we had a good day but then we all had a sore stomach so then it ended. From Kotipi

Performing A Play!

Yesterday boa, Limiteti and I  were practicing a play for us to present to the whole class. The play was called not so fast. The characters were first commentator, second commentator, coach, Sam and Terry. The story was about two competitors that were competing in the weird wonderful Olympics. There were different activities that they could compete in, but the one that they were doing was the 10 meter slow walk. The winner was Sam, Terry got disqualified by going to sleep in mid race. After we had finished practicing then we performed it to the whole class. My teacher Miss Riley thought it was funny and really good!
