Have you ever been to an assembly when your school starts a  new term?, well here it is and keep on reading.

On the  15th of October Point England school finally started term 4. We all came together and had a big assembly to start the term off. Also the new korero for this term is Tewa Toi, it means time to do art. So hope you enjoy the rest of the story.

There are lots of things on at school this term. We have athletics, Maniakalani film festival, testing, camp and lots more things. I am really looking forward to film festival because I like watching all of the different movies.

This term I would like to set some goals. One of my goals is to publish all of my work on my blog to show people what I have learnt. Another goal is to try my best on my tests and do really well.

Well this term is gonna be so fun because we are doing art,  art is one of my favourite subjects to do in school as well.
I am excited for the lots of art that we are going to create and to see what we do for our Term 4 animation. Also having lots of fun on making things that I have not made before in school.

This is going to be a really busy term, I am so excited to see my classes movie. I hope that I can achieve all of my goals and do lots of learning. So keep looking at my blog to see what I have been learning.

Paige - The Marshmallow Challenge.

Have you ever been in a marshmallow challenge before? Well I am going to tell you a story about it right now, so keep on reading.

Today in Room 8 we did a challenge and it was the marshmallow challenge with our friends. We first had to get in groups of 5 or 4 and then start the fun challenge.

First Miss Parrant gave us some things,  we needed for the challenge. The things that we needed for the challenge was 1 marshmallow, tape, 25 pieces of pasta, and some string. So firstly what my team did was that we took the marshmallow and placed it on the table. Then we decided what we were going to next.

After that we took all of our pasta pieces and shoved it into the marshmallow. Then we got the string and tied it around the pasta and then turned the marshmallow upwards to stay on top. Then we got the tape and placed is on the pasta and stuck it to the table. Looking at it on the table it looked like it would never work.

Then when we were nearly finished and we looked around at the other teams. We saw what they had done and I think that they had done a good job. Now we were almost finished but we were running out of time. Miss Parrant said “you have 30 seconds left.” We started to hurry to finish our tower. We let go of the tower and it stood tall with the marshmallow on top.

So we were all finished and so we packed up and cleaned up. Then we went and  sat on the mat when Miss parrant called us in. Also our team won too Yay!. But unfortunately the other teams creation all fell down and got busted down. But all the teams did good too and at the same time we were having fun.
Hope you enjoyed my story

Google Earth #3

Name:  Kalahari Desert
Where is it: In Africa
What size is it: 30.37M km2
Information about it: 

  • The Kalahari Desert is a large semi-arid sandy savanna in Southern Africa extending for 900,000 square kilometres
  • The only permanent river that flows through the desert is the Okavango River. The Kalahari desert is home to many big cats including lions, cheetahs or leopards.
  • It is the 6th biggest desert by area on Earth and the second biggest in Africa after the Sahara

Why people should go visit it:
Because it could be a new experience for people or you might have been there. So I think it would be very hot but it could be fun in some other way.
