Good Fiends

                                          Good Friends

How many friends do you have? Well I have more then one obviously, How about you? Friends to me is people that can help you if you're struggling at anything. They will always be there next to you, Helpful and respectful. I have about 14 friends that I can look up to at my school but many more away from school to.  

How many friends have you made a week? To be honest I make about two to three friends a week. Its pretty cool making new friends because you can learn more things about them and maybe do what they do for a living. Usually when I make friends I tell them what my hobbies are and what i’m good at.

Have you ever got in trouble and your friends sticks up for you? Isn't that what friends are supposed to do. If you stick up for your friends maybe they'll do or give something good to you. What I do with my friends are play some sports, sing some songs with the guitar maybe even go to the pools when school has finished.

If you help your friends maybe you can get something out of it. If you don’t , The one thing that you can get is feeling happy about yourself for helping them. You might not know, Maybe they will give you something in return, Then you’ll feel really happy.

Tukutuku Patterns

Hey guys This is just some other maths task that I got given from my teacher. These questions are based on crosses. I've already solved the question. You see, in one group there are three crosses and in the other group there are six crosses and if you keep on counting you can see that this question is about counting on in threes

Sticking Around

This is some of my maths problems that I was given, it was called "Sticking Around" as you can see the first question is a fence that is made out of sticks. If you are very good at algebra then you can figure out the rest of the questions. But we are just working on the very first question.

Diving Description and Explanation

As she stood steady on the diving board there was a huge pause in the crowd. She balanced with concentration, taking huge and deep breaths and off she went.She taught her body difficult maneuvers and timed to precision. She sliced through the water with a clean entry.

Did you know that diving has been in the commonwealth games since 1904. That means this sport has been in it for about 110 years, that is quite a long time. The way that the judges judge theme is how many flips and twist they do and 3 points for the take off and 3 points for the flight and 3 points for the entry if they do it perfect. They could come first place.

The Civic Theater

Did you know that only 35 student from Pt England School out of the year sevens and eights gotta chances to go to town to the Civic Theater. We got to watch animated movies shared from multiple countries around the world. We watched animations from China, Netherlands, Africa ,France and many more also including New Zealand.

We got to go on a bus which i’m really use to because nearly every trip we've gone on we always ride on a bus. It was really cool because we sang heaps of songs.    

My Favourite Animated Movie was about giraffes diving into a pool which was weird but also very funny at the same time. My second favourite movie was called The Numberlys. The Numberlys were a group of five people.

Term 2 Assembly

Isn't it awesome starting at school again for term two? "too me it is". I like coming back to school because I get to meet my friends again. On the 5 of May our school had a Assembly it was really cool because every assembly on the first day of every new start of a term they always have short performances from every team from team one to five.

The first one was team one, team one was all about the Zoo. The teachers made a video for the hole school too watch. They had a great video because it shows how they would keep the animals safe and us safe too. They are taking all of the team one students to the Zoo  "I wish I could go.

Team Two was all about Flying machines and how they work. they also made a little video too. On the video there were Hot air balloons everywhere after the video one of the teachers were dressed as a helicopter and another teacher was dressed as a plan and the last person was dressed as an pilot they all looked funny nearly everyone was laughing. The last character was a fairy who didn't know how the machines work so when she pointed her magic wand and dusted every teacher on the stage with magic dust and they turned on witch was very funny.

Team Threes performance was all about colour. I like there one the most because they told us how a rainbow is created plus I like colours too.Well when it rains a shine of like shines through one single rain drop then travels through many other rain drops that also creates different multiple colours and creates one gigantic rain bow that starts who knows were.

Team Fours one wasn't much of a performance it was mostly a documentary about Displacement and Buoyancy. Displacement for example is like a boats going into water and when the boats sets in, the water expands and the water rises up closer to the deck of the boat. Buoyancy for example is a little bit like Displacement but it's all about floating I still like it though plus it's good to learn new things once in a while.

Team fives performance was all about Sound It was really cool because all the teachers created different kinds of  home made instruments they all looked really weird but at least there instruments made a sound. Some instruments made oddly weird noises but I still like them.

Did you know that Bats uses echolocation. If you don’t know what it is well echolocation is locating with sound. You’ll have be very clever too know how to use this kind of technique.

Bats use echolocation to use echolocation you have to locate anything in front of them and anything on the side of them too. Bats create noises with their noses and the noise creates sound waves that hits an object and rebounds to them and they know how far away the object is and how close the object is also what kind of size it too.


There are very few people that use echolocation. But there is a teenager called Ben Underwood who had lost his eyes by cancer when he was three years old. So as years past through, one day him and his mother were riding in there car and past big buildings Ben says to his mum “ Mum can you see that big building out there” his mum was shocked when she heard him say that and his mum replied “I can but can you” that's when he could use echolocation.

When I finished watching the video about a Ben I thought to myself “if I close my eyes and make random noises will it rebound off the wall ?” Ben is just a normal teenager but he just doesn't have eyes to see. I never knew echolocation could help people that a blind could get them around place’s.

Mikaiah and Brodies Show not tell

Emily overheard her sister Laura on the phone saying that they were going to the mall. Emily, ran into Laura’s room saying “Can I come? Can I come?”

Laura said “NO you're too young you don’t know what you’re doing.” Suddenly Emily went storming out swearing at her and slammed the door on Laura's face. She locked herself in her room and started punching holes in the wall kicking things, around and then left, to calm down.

Laura thought “Far man that girl is really spoilt and she wants to come with me?”

Emily felt nervous about asking to go to the mall. Emilys heart was pounding as she went in to Laura room her legs started wobbling as she was so nervous she felt like she was going pee her pants and when Emily asked to go to the mall with Laura she said “sure i'll take you out for the day”

Mary started jumping up and down because her sister Jan was taking her to the mall. Jan was waiting inside her car while Mary was looking for some fresh clothes in a bunch of dirty clothes. It took about half an hour for Mary just to get change by then Jan got very impatient with Mary. Jan started frowning and said “How long is that girl going to be?”if Mary had came out but every time Jan looked out she wasn't coming. Jan got very very angry, then started beeping the horn and started shouting at her to hurry up.

Mary was nervous to go to the mall with Jan, when she asked she said “Jan can I please come with you to the mall? As she asked Mary, Jans legs started shaking because she was so nervous. She was so nervous but when she heard a yes from Mary she just shocked with excitement started jumping up and down until she ran out of breath to be happy any more. When they got into the car she kept on saying thank you over and over again until they reached the mall.

Fia Fia night

Practising for Fia Fia is actually really fun but I bet performing on stage will be really nerve wracking and frustrating for me. The group that I joined is called Jump Jam. I joined Jump Jam because it’s a really fun activity to do. For Jump Jam you have to use a lot of energy and really strong moves too

Our costumes for our group is Army clothes for some and the other costume is Black T-shirts and pants, some of the front row people got to even wear mirror glasses which was really hard to see in at night time but it was still cool. We got some face paint and couple of bands to tie either on your head, arm or leg.

On the night of Fia Fia we had to go to our holding rooms at 6.00 pm so we can get changed because it started at 7.00 pm. In the mean we got to play on the computers or board games while we were waiting for Mr Burts call on the speakers. I was on the computers playing Running Fred.

It was time to go out and perform but we had to wait for about 7 or 8 groups until it was our groups turn to perform. When it was our turn I stood on the stage and the only thing that I heard was people shouting and screaming at us. I could only see lights because of the glasses but I still had a really exciting time at the Fia Fia night.

Show not tell: In the morning

Place: Bedroom

BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP!, As I woke up my alarm clock started beeping I tried to turn it off by hitting the button about 5 or 6 times on the 7th time it finally turned off. I stood out of bed and squish! I stood on my sandwich that I had from yesterday for lunch. I looked up in the mirror and wiped my eyes and I turned around and suddenly I saw a whole pile of clothes on my desk and my stinky socks from 2 days ago hanging on my door handle. I heard mum in the kitchen making breakfast for me and my 2 brothers before we go to school. We had Wet Basket with Milk and toast with butter.

The Point England way

Did you know that the Point England way started in 2000 or 2001, Otalani Meleisa was a former teacher in Point England who found some ideas for the Point England. Before it used to be Belonging to Point England but right now Mr Burt and the teachers changed it to The Point England Way.

What does the Point England way mean to you? Well to me it means to enjoy one another's company, to be happy with one another, and to feel safe here at school. Have you ever heard the three P’s, the three P’s are Partnership, Protection and Participation and they come from the Treaty of Waitangi. The 3P's are what the Point England Way is all about as well.

Every Friday we have an assembly. The first thing we do is we sing the national anthem which is a tradition to our school. We also have a few koreros. Every term Mr Burt always makes up a korero for the rest of the term. A korero is a saying or a phrase that demonstrates how to behave at Point England School. For example so far this year our korero have been 'Put Yourself In Their Shoes' and 'Play in the Right Place'

The Treaty of Waitangi

The Treaty of Waitangi is to bring peace between the Maori people and Queen Victoria. The Maori people started war with the British, because the British people wanted land but Maori chiefs did not agree to anything. It’s good that they signed the treaty because it was all chaos back then.

The problems then were the British that wanted land, musket wars between the Maori tribes. There were no laws in New Zealand back in 1840. There were many fights between Maori tribes and other people.
The treaty of waitangi was signed on the 6th of Feb 1840. The treaty was signed right here in New Zealand. The treaty was meant to bring peace but not much happened after then.

But at the end when the treaty was signed everything went back to how they all wanted it. So obviously both the Maori chiefs and the British and also the never forgotten the queen Victoria.
