Pigeon Impossible

As Walter, the secret Agent sat down to eat his dounut Walter saw a bird standing on the edge on the chair the Pigeon staring at Walter so he can give him the whole dounut. After that walter broke a little piece of doughnut and chucked  it on the floor and the bird never went to the doughnut because he wanted the whole doughnut, the bird looked at him and flew up to his face and Walter pushed him and the bird went into the suitcase and the suitcase fell onto the floor and the suitcase lid was closed. Next the bird saw a button and the bird pressed the button and the box that was covering a red button popped up, and the bird pressed the red button softly. The bird saw a button that had fire written on it so the bird pushed the button and out popped a weapon and the little  bird pushed it and out came fire outside and the fire was heading to Walter and Walter ran and hide at the edge of a shop.

Finally the bird saw Walter holding up the dounut and he went towards Walter and the bird put away the weapon and opened the suitcase lid and jumped onto the edge of the suitcase and Walter chucked the
doughnut up into the air and it came down and hit the red button and a rocket appeared and was heading to Russia.
Problem:The bird wanted the whole doughnut, and the rocket was heading to Russia.
Solution: Walter blow up the rocket, and he opened the suitcase and let the dounut fall on the ground.

Your opinion of the story: I enjoyed this movie because the bird wanted the whole doughnut Illustration of a character doing something from the story:

Imagination Story.

“Get up Valenisia and start helping your Mum clean up the garden” yelled my grumpy Dad”, I got up sleepily.
Outside was so cold, shady and windy, but I knew that when I started digging the massive hole, so my mum can plant her flowers, I would get warmer. I started to dig the massive hole and I started to daydream because I was very bored digging the hole. I dug deeper, deeper and deeper not realising I hadn’t stopped digging the deep hole.
Shockingly I fell  into the deep yellow and red hole and with a massive bump I landed on a soft, bouncy, smooth, grases and shiny floor, I wondered around and I saw Candy trees, houses with candy on the roof, candy girls and boys, candy grass, candy chairs and candy lights. I was in Candy Land
Next I was singing a song and suddenly I heard footsteps coming towards me and I saw a shadow of a creature.
Shockingly I saw a face, the face was purple and had one eye, two egs and feet a big smile on her face and massive ears. After I saw the alien and he announced himself “Hi name is Holly Bolly, what’s your name?” and I whispered “Valenisia”. He whispered back “what are you doing here?”. I answered back “I fell down while I was digging a massive hole”. Suddenly Holly Bolly put out his hands and in his hands was a box and he whispered “I want you to take this to your world because I have no where to keep it safe. You need to keep it safe in your world.” I took the box out of his hand in out of his hands and put it in my pocket.

I sat down and closed my eyes and when I opened my eyes I was at the backyard still digging the hole that my mum wanted. Suddenly I stopped digging and looked around to see a red  key beside the box Holly Bolly had given to me. The box was for saving the world that Holly Bolly lived in and also his friends and his family. I heard my Mum was yelling out come inside and have a rest.” Finally I went to my bedroom and hide the golden key under my comfortable pillow, and laid down on my bed and I fell asleep

Glitter Art

This is an image of  a Kowhaiwhai pattern with paint and glitter on it. Reuben Paterson inspired us to do Kowhaiwhai images. I enjoyed putting the glitter on my piece of art because I wanted my piece of art to look neat and tidy. I found glittering difficult because I didn’t know which colour to use.

Orienteering Week 1

On a hot sunny day, Mrs Tui walked into Room 3 with a man named Mr McGivern. Mr McGivern said “Hello room 3” and then he introduced himself to the class. Next Mr McGivern showed us how to follow a map.

First of all, my friend Monique and I got a piece of paper that had a number on it. We had to put it somewhere around the class so people could guess where it was and write the letter on the paper down. Mrs Irene gave each of the students a paper that had numbers on it and we had to go off and find the number and match it to the alphabet.

When everyone went off we all found a lot in one go, that was so cool. After we had finished we all tried to figure out the word, everyone thought it was orienteering but guess what it was “Have a nice day” backwards.

After we had finished figuring out the word we went outside in our maths groups Pentagons, Circles, Squares and triangles. When we arrived to the field we had to do an activity which was to go around finding clues and we only had to go in one direction, no short cutting, only one way.

Room 3 enjoyed playing Orienteering with Mr McGivern and Miss Ieren, It was an awesome lesson. I am looking forward for doing orienteering every Wednesday.

Howick Historical Village trip

My favourite thing from Howick Historical Village was when we  went to play Parlour games. I found a teacher named Mrs Dodd, she was a very kind and loving teacher but she was too kind and loving. We had to line up outside the house, the boys lined up on one side and the girls lined up on the other side. It was a bit different from how we lined up at school.

Room three went inside the house and sat down on the mat. After that Mrs Dodd said “Good morning room three” and Room three replied “Good morning Mrs Dodd.” Next Mrs Dodd said to Miss G “can we have two teams please?” and Mrs G said “Room three can get into the teams that we were in before” Mrs Dodd said “the teams that you were in can you stand up in a straight  line”. After that we got onto the first game and that first game was called ‘The string game’.

Mrs Dodd asked a person “what is your team called?” and the teams were called Dragons and Lakers. When Mrs Dodd finished asking the last person what their team was called, she explained to room three how to play the string game. Room three started the game, when we finished the Lakers won the string game. Next room three got on to the second game which was ‘Squeak, Piggy Squeak’ here is how to play it...... You have to turn around, put the pillow on the floor and sit on  it and also  you have to guess the person speaking, Lakers won the second game.

Finally room three got on to the last game and that last game was called“ passing the ball” here is how to play passing the ball.....
you always have keep the  ball on your neck and the other person standing next to you has to take the ball off the other person without using their hands.

Room three had a lot of fun playing parlour game, I liked it when we played the Squeak, Piggy Squeak game and I also liked how we played the neck to neck game too.

Tom and the dragon Retell

“Can I please go for the pier to play?” asked Tom “Sure, but I have to warn you, there is a big dragon in the cave so, never ever go near the dragon. His teeth is as sharp as sharks teeth and when go in he will ask you for a game of chess, but never ever say yes. When you beat him he will barbecue you, or perhaps if he wins, then he will ask you for a fight with a sword, so never ever say yes to the dragon. After that he will ask you if you want a ride, never ever climb on the dragon’s back. When he says open your eyes do not look around because you will fall down into the deep water”.

Tom went to the pier and hid from the dragon. Suddenly when Tom peeked out he saw a face and that face the dragon’s face  with tears coming down.

After that  Tom and the dragon went to the beach with their mums. When they got to the beach Tom and dragons mum said a nervous “hello”to each other.
