A Journey To New Zealand

Kia Ora everyone! This is my short animation about Captain Cook arriving at new Zealand. My voice over was from my recount from Captain Cook's point of view. I had a lot of fun making this animation, I also learnt more about Maori history while I wrote my story. I hope to publish my whole story soon.

Enjoy!

...And Here's The Best Part...

It was a chilly morning and my tummy felt like it wasn't there. " Where's Ala?" I said worried. We were presenting. Yes, presenting. It was the first presentation of the year, and as you guessed, I was scared out of my pants! Well, school shorts in this case. I had a swarm of butterflies fluttering around in my stomach. Mrs Burt glanced at us. That was our cue! We walked in trying to look at the visitors from America trying not to move our heads. 'Us' is Seini-Mino, Mubasshira, Selena, Aidan, Erene, Angela,Ala and myself........sorry I am not able to finish this, but until then, I am going to try and work on me, learning my speech off by heart.

The visitors were very nice and friendly to us. By the end of the day it looked like they enjoyed Pt England School. I hope they have a safe trip home.

Wonderful Waiwera Part 2


" I bags the room with the double bed" I yelled when we raced inside. " No! I said it was mine first." Daniel shouted. " Would you two be quiet?" My mother said in an angry tone," We just got here and you two are already fighting. Now do me a favor and be quiet!" I stared at Daniel. "First one to the bed gets it." I whispered as soon as my mum left. I ran to all the rooms and tried to find the double bed. I shoved open the last door and jumped on to the bed. Seconds later Daniel pushed me off and he rolled on to the bed. " YOU CHEATER!" I shouted at him. He started to make funny faces at me. " Okay, next time we come here YOU get the single  bed. Deal?" he asked, while putting his hand out. " Okay" I giggled. We shook on it. " One more thing." I said slyly."What?" Daniel said. " Get out of my room!" I shouted. " Gees, calm down" He mumbled under his breath as he left. Mwahahahahahahaha! I had won the race. " Reka do you want to come swim in the hotel pool?" My dad yelled from the sitting room. " Of COURSE!" I said while racing to find my togs. Moments later Daniel was trying to push me off the big black donut. " Stop it!" I cried.  "Ha ha!" he chuckled. I eventually fell of and started splashing water in to Daniel's face. "No fair!" he yelled, " You've got goggles and I can't find mine!" By now I was happy with the revenge I had given to Daniel.  I saw my little brother race to the gate and pushed it open. He slowly walked in to the pool from the shallow bit" Hi guys!" he said eagerly. Oh, boy........
