After they finished they went to sit back down on the floor the wait and to watch the next item. The next performance was by room 5, room 5 had a wonderful song.

Soon after they had finished they headed back down to the floor for the next item which was by Room 1 and there drumming group which were very fantastic at the drumming but not that much students turned up which was such a shame.

Next up we had the Tongan group performing two items that were very exciting and fun to watch even though it takes a lot of time to learn it, after they got a lot of money but had to put it in the basket for the fundraiser.


At the end of the night everyone left the hall all proud of the kids and very happy after that. I felt very happy because everyone and I were not scared of the people in front of us on that night and my favourite part is the part that the boys in my class did the right thing by coming back to join us for the class Haka. #Culture Festival

Fridays Tech

On Friday my class and half of the other class went for our thing which is called Technology for the year 7s and 8s in our school. So as we were there we found out that it was our last time with Matua Dunn also known as Brent Dunn. We worked in the Marae at Tamaki College.

Emperor of Peka Peka Beach

In the beginning of the story a penguin was washed up on to Peka Peka beach. He was found by the animal vet who had taken him to an animal hospital. They had found 3 kilograms of sand and sticks inside the penguins stomach.

I'm feeling happy because happy feet recovered from swallowing 3 kilograms of sand and sticks. When I started to read this book I thought that the penguin might not survive but after 2 months of his recover he was fine and was sent back.

Movie night:The legend of Tarzan

On Friday evening half my family and I grabbed our laptop to search a movie to watch because it was very boring that night. So what we did was connected it to the T.V, secondly we found a site that we could watch movies on, thirdly we founded a movie which was called The legend of Tarzan.

The Legend of Tarzan is one of the best movies that I've ever seen but i hate to be a spoiler so I will just say what I felt about the movie. I felt very happy and emotional on some parts of the movie and I also loved every single part of it.

Volleyball Session

Today we went to the courts for another session of volley ball. The skills that we learnt was a dig, set and a spike and the question that she asked was which one is much more important and the answer was all of them.

We started of by having a partner and the partner had to go to the other side of the net then we had to lob the ball over to him/her then he had to do a dig right in front of him/her then he had to catch the ball.

The second thing we did was that we had a competition for lollies, so what we did was that we had to serve the ball to the other person at the other side of the net where he was standing and the team that won was Levi And I.

The last thing we did was to have volleyball games and there were six teams, numbers 1, 2, 3,  4, 5 and 6. So My team (2) were first up against team 1 and they won their first game. Next we were up against team 4 and also lost that game. Finallly we were up against team 6 and finally we won.

I felt very happy at the end of our session and so was my whole class.

The Haunting

Book Review of (The Haunting) by (Margaret Mahy).
This book is about a little boy name Barney who sees ghost everyday of his life and it is also a Horror book. Its also a very spooky story to tell people who are interested in spooky books. My Favourite part of the story is when he found out that he was died and that he was named after his great uncle Barnaby. What I disliked about the story was that Barnaby knew that his friends were real. Its very fun and scary and also very exciting.

I would tell them that it is very scary and that you probably don't want to read it at night because you might have bad dreams.

I would rate this book a 5 out of 5 because it is interesting for some people to read if they like it.
