Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells.......................

Hi Everyone! As you may know, Christmas has passed and I suppose there was wrapping paper EVERYWHERE!! I had lots of fun during Christmas. I think we did something that many people do. On Christmas Eve we all sat and sang christmas carols while our Uncle kept track of the time. We would all countdown and wait until it was past midnight. We actually opened our presents first thing on Christmas morning! I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas as well as we did.
-Here's a piece of what we did.
Now we wait for the Happy New Year......................

One For The Whanau

Kia Ora everyone.  I know that everyone in this beautiful world loves their family. I love mine especially because they are always there for me and they always encourage me.  They are very humorous and make me laugh.  I love my family heaps, more than you can ever imagine.  They are such a big part of my life.  They are all nice and easy to get along with. Tanielu and Justus are my brothers who make a lot of noise. My mum Andrea and my dad Ray are very funny and kind.

Thanks for reading my blog!

Family- Thank you for all the good times!

"" And now we're on to the year five awards" Mr Burt announced. " I'm so excited" I squealed to Selena.  It was the night of Pt England's 2009 Prize giving and I felt as if I was in Egypt, man it was hot!! " First of all the 100% attendance awards." Mr Burt declared" Maranda.......Aidan.......and..... Toreka." My heart thumped like crazy. "D-d-d-id  Mr Burt j-j-just call my n-n-name?" I thought in my head. Everyone turned around straight away and started to stare.Thankfully my friends and family started to cheer. It made me feel a bit better. As I hastily walked down the red carpet, I tried to imagine I wasn't at prize giving, but at home walking down the drive way. It REALLY helped. As soon as I got my award my older brother (Tanielu) hung two lollies necklaces around my neck. I looked down and I couldn't believe my eyes. In front of me, hanging around my neck were the my most favourite chocolates in the whole wide world.  Finally, I got to go and sit back down. But it didn't matter because I had to go back up again! This time, it as for getting distinction in my writing exams. I got another  lolly necklace. My nana must have been busy. Prize giving was a lot of fun. I am looking forward to next year's one!

A Petrifying Performance

"Shh" whispered Mrs Tele'a impatiently. It was the first night of the production and my teeth couldn't stop chattering. All the production people were lined up. anxiously waiting for the show to begin. We were performing The Toy Shop On Zip Zap Avenue, and I was three of the toys: A barbie doll, transformer and a troll. I was so nervous that goosebumps popped out of nowhere!

The time came when we all had to go out and sing the main song. The first thing I noticed was that the hall was full! Full of parents searching for their kids on the stage. My stomach felt like butterflies were fluttering inside me. But huge butterflies! The thought of performing made me more scared than a mouse in a cat's mouth. But yet, it was really fun. Sorry if I confused you.

The time passed so quickly, the transformers were on. My heart raced faster and faster. The beat of music had entered the hall, and I was ready to perform. I was as ready as I'd ever be. Doo be doo ba bam! Doo be doo ba bam! The music swiftly swayed in to my ears. I t was like I was persuaded to dance!

Finally, the finale had arrived. Every body was laughing and having fun. I just spotted my family and waved and smiled. I think it's cool that we have productions because we can show off our talents to our community.

Paleontologist Project

Ladies and gentle men, you are going to feast your eyes upon very very important information about the American paleontologist himself, Edward Drinker Cope. He is also a herpetologist and ichthyologist. He studied a lot of things.  Sorry, this was a VERY late update from Term 2!! We learnt about dinosaurs in term 2 and our extension project was to explain about the paleontologist we got given to study. Watch this movie to find out more information about this famous paleontologist.
