For the passed few weeks or so the Weka's have been reading Docking Day. Our reading was to have 2-3 good sentences to tell you why this years docking day was better than ever. We've also been told to illustrate 2 similes from the story. Here's my sentences and paintings.

This years  docking was better than ever because a chocolate van came rolling down the hill spewing chocolate bars and biscuits like  Christmas decorations on a christmas tree. This story was also based on a true story which would be  awesome to experience. 

‘Like Christmas decorations tipped over the hill’

‘its doors gaping like jaws’

Vacation Disaster!!

Miela, her mother Lea, her father Rick and her  2 brothers Cameron and Daniel were on a vacation. One very hot day they went out to the beach  for a swim.  So far they all were having a great time, but they didn’t have a clue on what was going to happen.

Watching Cameron and Daniel jump off the rocks seemed quite cool to try out. So what do you know, she had a turn. Diving into the rough sea, Miela hit the water, head first. After many minutes waiting for MIela the brothers  were terrified that there was no sign  of her . Looking out at the waves  Cameron saw somebody floating in the water waving their hands.

Examining the person carefully, he noticed it was his sister, screaming “ HELP HELP SOMEBODY SAVE ME”. Knowing that Cameron couldn’t fix the problem  on his own he ran to the bank to tell his parents . Calling the lifeguard for a boat they RUSHED AS FAST AS THEY COULD.

With a huge effort on trying to save their sister lucky she was okay. The family then flew back to San Francisco   in the morning and was never seen again.

Mrs Verry

            Unfortunately our school Super Gran is retiring and is going to take it easy. Mrs Verry is a really GREAT, AWESOME person to know. She loves you so much and treat's you like her own. All our memory's of her are still with us. She's always going to be our Super Gran, and our Bling Queen.

              Even though she is really good at  crashing bicycles she'll always be the person who cares for Pt England. She is like a mother is everyone she meets.  We all love her and it's very hard to see a great Gran go and retire. SHE'S SPECIAL!!!!

The Duffy Assembly

   Walking into the duffy assembly I sat down  silently. Waiting for our special guest Jo Holley we sang songs.

Finally arriving Jo Holley asked us many questions and told us how she first began her  career as a T.V Star and a Movie Star.  Starting her  career at primary Jo said she had started presenting when she was about 11. She was in many T.V shows such as Squirt , Crowd Goes Wild, ITM fishing and other shows that I’ve forgotten. There was also 1 movie that was Siones Wedding 2 Unfinished.

After telling us about her career and how she started she handed out our duffy books with Ron and Oston from the Buckland Beaches Lion club in Pakuranga. Calling classes 1-24 we went up and  claimed our books. After that Jo Holley signed some books and took photos with the classes. Unfortunately we did not get her autograph but we did get a High 5.

Jo Holley said that  even though you make mistakes it doesn’t matter, what matters is to have fun. I thought about what she said and it was true.

Quick And Easy Boxes

Follow my 7 easy steps to get a useful box.
Step 1. First of all you'll need a rectangle of stiff paper about 20 x 15cm.

Step.2. Then you fold the paper from bottom to top and from side to side.

Step.3. Then fold both the long edges into the middle  crease. Then unfold them.

Step.4. Both the short edges need to be folded into the middle crease . ( Leave them there)

Step.5. Then fold all the corners so that they meet the nearest crease.

Step.6. Fold back the edges of the middle so that they cover the corners.

Step.7. Then put a finger inside each corner and pull gently outwards.

For your finally touch pinch the corners and smooth the sides to make them stand up.

Tooth Fairy 2


Have you ever watched The Tooth Fairy 2, well if you haven’t then I’m telling you right now that its a great movie to watch and enjoy with your family.

So anyways last weekend I watched The Tooth Fairy 2 with my cousins. We had snacks to go with it as in Willy Wonka Lollies, Caramel Popcorn, and a drink. When the movie started we all crawled into our blankets.  At first the movie was alright but as I kept watching it , it  got better and better.

The bit that I really found funny was when Larry Guthrie (the main character)  was playing snow fight with the after school kids but not for long. During the snow fight his ex- wife came and growled him  for all the mess he had created. While she was doing that Larry loaded the cannon ball into the slingshot  and let it go. What do you know it landed on her face.

In this movie there was a very cruel man who was engaged with Larry’s true love who he lost from winning a car at the bowling isle. This mean man was always trying to ruin Larry’s Life. He succeeded but then larry got revenge  for all the mean things that the mean man  had done.

At first when Larry had found out that he was a tooth fairy he hated it. But he started to realise that being a tooth fairy was actually fun. He then retired at the end and got back together with his ex who then got pregnant and had a wonderful baby.

After enjoying that funny and awesome movie we had some delicious pizza. A few minutes later basically my whole family was over. So we had and awesome night, enjoying pizza and watching that funny movie. Finishing our feed hours later we had desert. After all of that we watched the All-Blacks game.

Overall I think that my weekend was really awesome. Hopefully I’ll be able to enjoy another one exactly like that. I hope you enjoy the movie with your FAMILY AND FRIENDS!!!
