 The best thing was that was different was creating stuff on our Netbook like google doc’s,  site, blog and also using google account.

Learning, Learning was amazing I learnt a lot about math, writing and a little bit of reading  and I learn everything about Netbook.

In 2012 it was really surprising because we get use our netbook and we don’t use a book and a pencil.

What I enjoy was making movies and how to use the camera like how to put the camera on the tripod.

In 2013 my goals is to be a singer and actor when the camera is recording.

I like my Netbook  because  i can go online apps or on the ipad.

The coolest the thing to be an yr 5 is making movie’s all the time and editing it  post it on the blog.


This is a rabbit made out of different shapes. Miss King has showed us a site called 
Tangram. It is where you make somethings out of 7 shapes all of them.
So here is a link for you to go and have a try at making it.

Farewell Mrs Verry

Farewell to our dear Mrs Verry from Team 4 Pes on Vimeo.
To Mrs Verry it was so sad that she are going away and it was good that she brought her children and grandchildren to Pt England.

Mr Burt called her Supergran because she was the best helper ever and she tried to wipe her tears but she couldn't. She kept crying and after she watched the Pounamu and the Samoan dance groups dance for her.

Mrs Verry was one of the best teacher ever but sadly she was leaving. At the end of the assembly Mrs. Verry gave a sad message. I went up to Mrs. Verry and hugged her as tight as I could. I said good bye to her because this would be the last time we would see her.

Take care!!!

Cross Country Training

Sitting on the netball court, we listened to Mr Marks tell us where to go. It was a new cross country course. So it about crossing the road and I said AHHHWWW MAN I don’t want to go across the road, we started to train now.

Running out of the school grounds, I went around Miss Ouano, round the corner, towards Miss King. My heart was beating fast so I stopped and walked. Miss King said to me “COME ON GLORIA AND DON’T STOP!!!!!!.”

I finally reached the finish line at the court. Feeling so tired because I had jogged and never stopped. Now it was time to walk around the court and do some stretching.

YES!!!!! I can’t wait to go swimming!!!!!!!.

Me and my classmate went to the pools we listened to the instructor how to get down into the water the instructor told us what to do.

Our instructor told us to  put our chin on our chest,  take deep breaths and swim. It was so hard to kick with my leg but it is easy swimming like a penguin and a mermaid.

When I kick the water started to turn into bubbles. By using straight knees, I could kick faster. I used the island to push myself off, so I can kick faster too.

My Tree

We made these trees to demonstrate what it means to be  a good learner.
I chose the word co-operates because I like to do co-operates games.


The beach was glorious and hot. Sometimes I go and play with the sand, breaking it into glittery pieces. Where does this magic come from? Lying down under a shady tree, I cooled down.

My Holiday

I the Holiday  i went to the airport because me and my family is going to Australia to go sharneice and her family .now we are going to the airplane and then had some breakfast at the airplane and there was blanket,headphone and a touch screen TV It was cold hard out i unwrap
a piece of paper and get out the blanket and wrap me up and that made me warm.


Running around the cones, we quickly picked up the tennis ball.

luckily we beat group 2

After we won we had to play against another team.


My favourite part in the show is that scruffy was chasing Marvel but Scruffy was very naughty
because all he want to do is play with Duffy to play outside playing rugby.The actor was so silly
and glorious but Duffy was a good reader.The Duffy actor sing like a super
star and Marvel was acting like a England person and she was AMAZING

Chasing Marvel all over the stage, Scruffy finally caught her! We were watching the Duffy show.
Scruffy was my favorite actor because he always keep turning into Emmy,Rocky and Wiremu
