The bush walk

Once there were three boys. They were named Michael, Jordan, and Zac. One day the three boys went for a bush walk. While they were walking they saw something glowing in a bush. So they went to see what the glowing thing was. They looked into the bush and their found a shiny box, “ I wonder what is in this box “ said Michael “ me too” said Zac so then they opened up the box. When they opened it up  there was a little map, so they grabbed the map out, on the map was an x mark right in the corner, they thought “ maybe there is treasure?”, so they set off to look what the mystery was going to be. They went through some trees, passed some bushes, climbed up some mountains when suddenly they found a little x mark right under there feet!! They were so happy to see that they had found the x mark, so quickly they dug up the x mark as fast as they could. After they had dug up the x mark they found a big treasure chest,  they decided to opened  up the treasure to see what was inside. Inside were 3 golden bars. They shared them out to each other and took them home. It was a big journey for them. THE END.

Olympics Comparison

In my class we have been comparing the Ancient and Modern Olympic games.

The Olympic Torch

Let's Go Eels

On a cold windy day, 20 people from the pavilion went to visit the Omaru creek in Glen Innes. We saw rubbish and sandwich bags around and in the creek, we knew that the creek was not healthy.

Next we went to Tusitala to wait for Robin. Robin is an author, she wrote Let's go eels. When we met her we learnt different greetings from different countries for a warm up. The next activity we done was who am I, It was a fun game to play, it helped me learn about different sea creatures.

The next activity we done was in the hall, we were learning about where Eels live and what scare them away. There was one activity that was my favourite, it was saving the Eel activity, it helped me learn about how Eels can get stuck in many different ways like getting stuck in plastic bags, trolleys, and heaps of other things.

The community can help their sea creatures if they don't litter and throw rubbish

Years and years ago the Ancient Greeks had a war with the Persians in a place called Marathon. The Greeks won the battle and a man called Pheidippides was sent to take the message of the victory to Athens.

Pheidippides ran 42.2 km from Marathon to Athens in the hot sun. Going over rocky mountains Pheidippides felt so tired with no water, food and sleep.

As he delivered the message, Pheidippides shouted “Joy! We won!” to the people of Athens- he collapsed and died.

The Olympic flame

... ceremony-olympic flame.jpg
 The Ancient Greeks started the tradition of having an Olympic flame in Olympia. A sacred flame is lit by the sun's rays and stays alight until the games have ended. The flame symbolized a request for protection from Zeus and the athletes’ struggles for victory.

 The modern flame symbolizes the light of the spirit, knowledge and life. To this day, the torch is still lit in Olympia in Greece, then carried by a relay team passing runner to runner until it reaches the host-city of the games. There, the cauldron will be lit and stay alight until the closing ceremony.

Ancient Olympics

The Olympics began over two and a half thousand years ago in ancient Greece. In those days Greece was made up of several different states including Athens, Sparta and Corinth and they were often at war with each other, but when the games were on they held a truce. This great event was held at a place called Olympia and this is why the games are called the Olympics.

They were held once every four years in honour of Zeus, lord of all the gods. Eventually the Ancient Olympics were abolished by the roman Emperor Theodosius the first, who was a christian and did not like the games because they were dedicated to a pagan god, but the Olympics were always remembered as a symbol of achievement and peace.

Te Tuhi

First thing in the morning the pavilion kids got split into two groups. We were off on an adventure to Te Tuhi an art gallery in Pakuranga. Carefully we got off the bus in two lines. When we got to Te Tuhi we sat on the floor there was a man called Jeremy he came to talk to us about the art gallery. After he talked to us we were all filled with excitement.

We all followed Jeremy to a workshop where people had made art. When we got to the workshop we followed simple steps to make our dream house. First we had to pick ten shapes and plan our dream house, we rotated our shapes into different angles, but they had to tessellate. The next step was gluing, then drawing around our shapes with vivid then the last step to do, we had to draw furniture inside our house with pencil.   

My Artwork

Creating my artwork I felt proud because I have been working on it for weeks. I have been managing my work and I have been trying my best to make my artwork look amazing. 

The best part of painting was using the neon colours and planning  my art.  I mostly loved vividering and painting dots with white paint.

What I found hard was that I had too much little white spaces in my artwork that I had to be so careful of painting. What I didn't like was that people kept on distracting me that I could not do my work. 

What I can do better next time is that I can make my shapes not that small so I can paint through them nicely. I can also take my time and not rush. 

The most interesting thing that my friend Eden did is that when she had little patterns she just found a way to make it look great. The most interesting thing that I did is that when I did vividering it made my art stand out. 

What I learnt most about my painting is not to put too much paint onto your bush and not too put little detail onto your paper. I also learnt how to draw lightly.

Fia Fia Costume

My costume: My costume was a pretty and bright kind of costume. For my costume I had a white t-shirt with a blue lavalava. My hair looked so pretty because in my hair I had a purple flower with little flowers sticking out.

Being an audience: Sitting on the cold hard ground I can hear the thumping music. Eagerly waiting I couldn't fall asleep.   Sitting in the dark I was supporting my friends and whanau.  

Chances tesselation

Today we learnt about tesselation.


The people of the land were in danger because of a Taniwha that had lived in a lake. The land had no light so at night the Taniwha would come and eat anyone for a meal if they were near there home. People were terrified of going out at night.

During that time there was a warrior named Tamarereti, one morning Tamarereti woke up and his stomach was rumbling so he checked his kepu but it was empty so Tamarereti decided to go fishing on lake taupo in hope to catch some fish.

After fishing for a while Tamarereti had caught 3 large fish he was really happy until he realised that the wind had gone. It was mid morning and Tamarereti felt tired he thought that he would have plenty of time for the wind to come back so he took a little nap in his waka. After many hours later Tamarereti and his waka had washed onto shore so while he was sleeping the wind had picked up already, Tamarereti knew that he was in big trouble, his belly was still rumbling  so Tamarereti cooked some fish for him to eat. Since it was night Tamarereti knew the Taniwha would eat him. While Tamarereti was eating his kai he saw glistening pebbles glowing in the dark. This gave Tamarereti an idea,he gathered as many pebbles as he could and put them into his waka and threw them into the sky where they hung sparkling and shining, the lights had kept the taniwha away and made it safely back home. After a long day tamarereti fell straight asleep until noon. When he woke Tamarereti had a visitor waiting for him it was Ranginui god of the sky, Tamarereti was so scared of what he had done he had taken Ranginui’s black dark sky and filled it with lights. Tamarereti was sure to get punished but instead ranginui said ‘’Tena ko Tamarereti you have made the land safe and the sky more beautiful i would like to honor your change and cast your waka into the heavens so people will remember what you have done.Tamarereti was relieved and happy.

My Dream Bedroom

My Geometry Garden

In my garden my flowers have Rotational Symmetry.
This means that when I rotate my flowers they will have an order 4 and look the same.

In my garden my butterfly has Reflective Symmetry.

This means that my butterfly reflects on both sides and looks the same.

In my garden my pathway shows tessellation
To make my pathway I translated a shape to make it look the same and have no gaps.                            
This means that each shape can repeat to make a pattern. Also this means that when you tessellate the shape it has to have no gaps.

The Frog

Gripping onto the tree the slimy green frog was catching his prey. The small cricket was floating on a leaf, then suddenly a frog came and outstretched his tongue and ate him all up. Afterwards the frog opened his big wide eyes and went to find more prey.

Bombing off the cliff the boy splashed into the water. A fountain of water splashed up in the air. “Your turn bro” said the boy to God. On a sunny day God and the boy did a big bomb. While they were doing bombs they looked at the majestic mountains. Powerfully God twisted and flipped through the air and landed softly in the water. Splash! God hit the water like an asteroid. “Wow you are God.” The boy cried.

The New Zealand Flag

New Zealand has been voting whether or not we should change the New Zealand flag. l think we should change the old flag because it only has two simple colours which is red and blue.  I think that we should change the old flag because we might get mixed up and confused with Australia.

New Zealand is a nice independent country.  The new flag represents the all blacks which is the New Zealand rugby team.

Roller coaster


Feeling scared, nervous and somewhat frightened, I ran towards the screaming roller coaster. It is time. I had waited ages for this moment to arrive, but now it was here I wanted to wish it away again.

As the coaster pulled up, it was our turn to get on. “There are butterflies in my tummy’’ I said quietly. Listening to the screaming from the people in front of me turned my stomach.

Roaring and soaring through the sky we tumbled and twisted. Was it nearly over? I screamed and crossed my fingers tight.
