The whales that were stranded on that beach were very unlucky and the eight whales that stranded after the first bunch were very lucky.

This is what they did to keep the whales alive 

They put towels, blankets any type of fabric on the whale but they make sure it doesn't cover the blow hole.

Then they get any type of container and then fill it up with water and keep on pouring it onto the the whale.

Winter Learning Journey: Day 3: Activity 2

I agree that the possums should be killed because they are killing the world and making New Zealand not pretty, the opposite of what we want. But i also want the possums not to die because they are little critters so my idea is to get as many possums as we can and then ship them off to Australia because the possums are a protected and endangered species of Australia. so i think that it would be a very clever idea but just to get rid of them and keep them alive at the same time.

Back In da Day Reflection


I think that the production was a great success. The costumes were great, the acting was great and everything was perfect. The only down was that some people had a bit of trouble with the timing but if we have a next time then we would get it right. I think i should try and be a bit less sick last time and not cough and sniff. I think i should also try and remember all of the words in my song. I really think that it was the best production we have ever made. Saying that because it was the first i have ever made

Me Being A Food Critic

Walt: express our personal opinions

Salted caramel chocolate sensation

The product is salted caramel, and i think it was delicious.

The product was very good. There were salty caramel chunks in the chocolate. The chocolate was very melty and very nice, it smelt a bit like dirt and I like that.

I really liked the cadbury chocolate product salted caramel. It is part of the cadbury range. It's three dollars ninety nine and very good so i recommend it. It smelt like the earthy smell of trees and dirt and i really love that earthy smell. I also think that it is really good and  the price is o for awesome.

I think that the cadbury salted caramel was very good. The only problem I had with it was the salted taste because it had a bit too much salt. But other than that I loved the earthy smell and the texture and taste of the chocolate.

I think that the product was very good and nice and delicious. I think that you should have it and it is very nice. Mr Goodwin should buy it for his Friend  Stacy.

Castaway Writting

Inline images 1
Walt: write from the first person

My eyes flew open. I see blue skies and clear water. I start crying screaming and being a ninny if you don't know what that is search it up. I’m still in the ocean so i decide to look around and i see an island all these feelings pop into my head i saved civilisation and i get out of my raft, tie it around my leg and then swim. Luckily there is a friendly dolphin but my raft pops i’m on the island. “HELP” I cry “HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELP” i cry again then i look around. no civilisation “oh what’s next then” i say “ giant lizards, tsunamis”


I walk around then find some logs sticks and fronds i think out loud to myself: “well the sun's getting real low so i have to build a shelter.” I gather up all the materials i need so i can build a shelter. I start to wander and find this clearing in the woods. I start to lay my things out. I find these stumps just lying there must have been dead trees. I build a shelter.


I am so hungry i haven’t eaten for days i could eat a whole island. I look around the beach and find these oysters. I lick my lips. Grab a sharp stick and SNAP! “The stick broke! Those must be strong oysters” I said i start to look around and find a rock, it looks like the head of a spear “PERFECT!” I cry out. I grab the rock and wedge it into the bottom part of the oyster. It's a bit hard at first but the oyster starts to loose it's grip. It's off the rock i decide to eat it then look at the ocean it's full of tropical fish. My stomach grumbles. I gather some flax and shells and go to my rock anvil i start to rub the shell on the rock it starts to turn into powder i shape it into the shape of a hook. I tie it to the flax rope i made by plaiting it. I put the oyster on the hook and fish. I got it!


I think it's time to make a signal. I gather some materials. Including :coconut shavings, a rock, a piece of wood, and a stick. I make a little tinder nest and put a notch in the wood i put bark in under the notch and then rub with the stick and “FIRE!” i cry happily “now i can be rescued”

After making lots of smoke by putting in a lot fronds on it. I here a helicopter coming and it is loud! I don't think i have seen or heard a helicopter in years. I start putting more fronds on the fire and then start to make smoke signals and the helicopter lowers down a rope. I climb on and they pull it up.

Immersion Assembly

Walt: using exciting language


“Line Up!” Shouted Mr Goodwin “Everybody Line Up for immersion assembly!” we lined up for immersion assembly and then we went to the hall. The hall was Playing a song called Bright Idea by Vitamin D it matched the theme called Now That's Thinking It was all about Technology. Before the teams did their items Mr Burt told us a story of Manaiakalani.

Our term topic is all about Technology. Team 1, 2 and 3 are learning about Matariki and Kites  and Team 5 are learning about how they can solve problems and fix things. I found Team 5 was My favourite because it was Hilarious. What do you think team 4 is learning about ?

Team 4 Is researching about what kind of technology the Maori People used before the Pakeha Came to New Zealand. Our movie was hilarious as well as interesting. The creative teachers of Team 4 were showing us what different Items of technology they used in their days and were trying to come up with an topic for Term 2. They started to read books and found out most of the things we use today were made in the late 1800’s and the early 1900’s. Miss Buchanan wondered aloud what it was like 200 years ago. They came up with the idea to learn about What kind of technology did the Maori People use before the pakeha came to New Zealand.

I hope that we get to learn about how the Maori People hunted their food and built their homes and Marae. I also want to learn about how the Maori moved their supplies and things like that. I hope that we can make our own mini waka too. I think that we are going to learn about how the Maori moved around, cured colds and hunted their food.

I am excited for this term because it is based on technology and history and they are 2 of my favourite things. I think we are going to find out a lot about the Maori. I am super excited about Term 2. I can’t wait to start researching.

Today I went to the beach with my Step Aunty and Step mum and Dad my cousins came as well they are so cute. One is Called Elise she is the oldest and the younger one Is Ayla. we went to the beach and got our clothes all wet and sandy. I went into the water and my objective was to have nothing above the water. But i had to keep my head above the water so I could breath.

Serj the dog Aunty Becca (Step Aunt) owns loves to play fetch so we got a stick and threw it to him. We threw it in the water in the sand and he could not stop running. Roman and Kauri did races and Justice made his little island out of sticks and wet sand. It was very stable.

In the end we went back home Justice went in Aunty Becca’s car and Elise stayed in our car. Before we went in the cars though I gave Elise a piggy back ride with the jacket on top and Justice held Ayla in the baby strap thingy.
