The Manaiakalani Movies

Yesterday at night, Miss Nalder picked me, Julius and Toks up from our houses. Then we went to Sylvia Park McDonalds to eat. After that we went to the cinemas and that's where I saw my old school Ruapotaka and I saw some of my friends. After a while Miss Nalder said "Why don't we have a walk around?" Then we played tag. After a minute it was time to go into the theatre. We watched a lot of Manaiakalani movies. Room 24s movie was last. When it was done, my mum and dad said that they were proud of me.

The girl who hated books

Once upon a time there was a girl who hated books. Her house was full of books, her parents brought lots of books. One day the characters in the books came to life. The girl didn't know what to do so she said "get back in the stories!" She shouted but it didn't work so she only had one choice but to read the 30 books in one day. That was going to be hard so she started reading. After a long long read she was done with reading her 30 books. But she felt interested in books so she read again. When her parents came they were surprised. The girl said "now I know reading is fun."

The solar system

The solar system is in space and is a group of planets that orbit the sun. There are nine planets in the solar system. Their names are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.The sun is a star. If we didn't have the sun it would be freezing cold like winter. The sun is made out of gas and helium.

Earth has another name. It is called the Goldilocks planet because it is not too hot, not too cold - it is just right. Mars is known as the red planet. It is hot. Mars has red soil. Mars is smaller than earth.

The moon orbits the earth. The moon doesn't give us night. The earth is spinning and when it spins, it becomes night when the sun isn't facing us. The moon doesn't have as much gravity as earth. 

Venus and earth are like the same size. But there is a difference. Venus is very hot. It is the second closest planet to the sun. 

Neptune and Pluto are the farthest planets. It is far away from the sun. It is very cold in Neptune and Pluto.

My Exiting weekend

First on Saturday afternoon me and my mum were in the backyard, my mum asked if I wanted to dig some kumara. I said yes! because I thought it would be like a treasure hunt, I was right it was like a treasure hunt. Every time we found one  we said "wow"! When me and my could not find any we washed them with  the hose. When my mum finished washing them we counted them. When we got to the last Kumara and "we said we found 30 kumara ! "Then we gave some to our neighbors on the right. At the end we had a napp. I felt exited because it was like a treasure hunt.

Magical Matariki

What is Matariki?

Matariki is the Maori New Year and the seven stars. The 7 stars shine brightly in the sky and they are in a group. The seven stars appear in late May or early June and there is a new moon it is the beginning of the Maori new year. The stars disappear in Aotearoa in late April. The stars have another name called the 7 sisters. Matariki is the name of the eldest sister. She is guiding her younger sisters to their place. When the seven stars shine brightly it will  be warm also it will be good for growing crops and gathering seafood. We celebrate Matariki in lots of different ways. We weave flax and fly kites. We tell stories from the past. We learn about how the Maori people used the stars. It’s a time to forgive and forget the problems of the past. We make plans for the future.

Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs

Once upon a time there lived a beautiful, elegant Queen with a good heart. She lived in a huge castle. The Queen had a wish to have a baby daughter named Snow White. Then her wish came true. As Snow White grew up the Queen became ill and passed away. Then the king remarried again he married an Evil Queen. She was an arrogant woman. Everyday she would always say to her glass mirror "mirror mirror on the wall who is the fairest of them all?" the mirror would reply "no one only you". One day the Queen said to the mirror again "mirror mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?" The mirror replied "Sorry not you, Snow White is the fairest". Suddenly the Queen was angry so she gave a Huntsman an order to take her to the woods and kill her. The Huntsman was about to kill her but he could do no harm. When Snow White knew about the Queen's plan, the Huntsman said "go into the woods and never come back". She went into the woods. When the Queen went to the mirror she asked who is the fairest ad the mirror still said "sorry it is not you it is Snow White". Meanwhile Snow White had found the 7 dwarfs house in the woods, she cleaned it up. The Queen came and knocked on the door with a disguise. When Snow White opened the door it was an old lady, she asked if she could have a bowl of soup. When she finished the bowl of soup she gave her an apple that was poisoned. When she had one bite she fell on the floor sleeping. When the dwarfs came home one of the dwarfs said "this apple is poisoned!". In the end they put her in a long glass box on top of a hill. A prince came and saw her. He lifted the glass and kissed her. Snow White woke up and they got married. When the King knew about the poisoning the sent the Queen far away.
