How The Haka Was Invented

Do you know how the Haka was invented? Well Room 17 knows. We know how the haka started from beginning till end. At class we got into teams and we got parts of the story. I chose the part when the Te Rauparaha was hiding in a kumara pit. If you want to find out more watch my movie.

What We Have Been Learning For Reading

"Legs turned to Jelly"

For reading my group the Wekas, have been learning about using clues from the text to read new vocab. We have read a story called When I grow Up. Some of the words or phrase were Legs turned into jelly. Our awesome teacher Miss Garden told us that we had to make a funny cartoon on one of these phrase. “Running for my life” “Legs turned to jelly” “Prise my fingers off” As you can see I chose legs turned to jelly.

What happens after you eat your food?

Have you ever wondered where your food goes after you eat it? Well the year 5 and 6 extension class does. This all started when we were talking about people at Africa. People over there drink dirty water. This is not good for their bodies.

Here is a movie that Litia, Brooklyn, Tyla, Shoal, Chante and myself made. My part in this movie is at the beginning when you eat your food. When you eat your food your salver helps it to brake it down.

I would gave my voice over a rating of 8 out of 10 because it was very clear. I would gave a rating for the whole movie a 9 out of 10. We finished in time and we worked to together as a team.

Parts that I think we need to improve on are editing it properly and focusing on our work not our team works. But I have to say that somethings I did like about our movie is that we used Shrek as our main character and we were not shy to do our sound effects.Hopefully this will tell or even teach you about your digestive system. Sit back and relax.

Badminton At Ptengland School

I was sort of nervous when I waited in the hall with my class. We were waiting for our badminton teacher. When she walked into the hall I started to have butterfly’s in my stomach. Suddenly I was scared.

I found out that there were 3 main hits that you should use to play with. Forehand, this hit is when you want to hit it across your body. Backhand, when you hit it normally. Over head is when you hit it above your head. Our teacher Dona was very kind but, I must say that the hardest skill that she taught me was serving.

I was hitting the shuttle over the net. The shuttle made a whirring sound as it went back and forth, back and forth, until... “OUT!!!” Everyone yelled at me out because I hit the shuttle outside the line. I was disappointed. A few minutes later it was all most my turn again. This time I was determined to win against my opponents.

All the playing made me tired and thirsty. We said bye to Dona since it was her last day teaching us. On Friday we will be having a different teacher. I was going to remember all the skills that Dona taught me and show it to our new teacher.

Will The Rugby World Cup tournament benfit NZ?

I believe that if we host the Rugby World Cup here in New Zealand, good and bad things can possibly happen. The good things are, more money can come into New Zealand which can help Christchurch build buildings and help families. Also visitors will come and when they are hungry or thirsty, they can go to restaurants. This helps restaurants build more business. Some bad possible things that can happen are, when people drink to much they can get drunk, and this might cause fights. Another possible bad reason that things can happen are drugs can be handed around and if the police sees it then they could go to court. This is why NZ as a nation have to keep your eye on the ball.
