Immersion Assembly. . .

As soon as the bell went I heard Mr Burt’s thundering booming voice saying “$1 $2 $3 number 21 going once going twice going 3 times and sold to number 21”. We were at school for our Immersion Assembly to learn our new topic for this term.

The first teachers to go up in front of the School was team 1 which was the year 1’s. Their topic was all about money. They said that they're trying to earn some money by working hard and being good to their teachers.

My  favourite team was team 4 because they were all learning about being good with money the teachers names who were acting on stage were Calm, Sassy and Really Happy. They were very funny because how Mr Somerville was acting like a  girl and how he was walking.

I thought that In Immersion Assembly was the best Assembly ever because I got given lots of chocolate’s. I felt very excited because team 1 scrambled a-lot of money chocolate. This terms topic for 2015 was called trade & Enterprise. After a long while I felt very tired.

What were you wearing for Cross Country ?

For Cross Country we had to wear our team colors which were Yellow,Green,Blue and Red. The colors were named after different waka’s in the water. If i picked my favourite color I would have to pick blue because it’s my favourite color but my actual color is Yellow which is Takitimu.

The smallest Circus In the world...

Once upon a time there was an old man called Leo Mousini and he was the world's most attraction star for all of these years. Leo Mousini was wearing a orange coat and a black hat when Leo started performing in the circus he did lots of different tricks like a hand stand on one arm and a cartwheel. When Leo Mousini did his handstand and his cartwheel he started to get really dizzy so he got really old and he had a back pain. When Leo Mousini walked home he felt very tired and very sad but he still had time to walk around the circus once. When Leo left the circus he got really old and traveled back home. When he got home he saw to little mices hiding in his hat. The two mices names were called Mitzi and Mack. The two mices were cute and funny The mice had asked Leo in a quiet voice if they can learn some magic tricks off Leo Mousini. So Leo Mousini taught them how to do handstand on one arm how to ride a unicycle without handlebars and how to do a cartwheel. So then Mitzi and Mack had been called the mice clowns. All the audience had been really excited because the mices were really cute.

Once upon a time there was a little girl called Emily and she had a squishy squashy mincey to munch,flakey bakey  crispy to crunch pie. Suddenly came running towards the smell of that  pie was liz with a rumbling tummy saying “ I’ll be your best friend if you give me a bite of your pie”? Suddenly Emily said “ okay just a bite”. When Emily said that, Liz could have a bite,
Liz took a really gigantic bite.

Then came running over to that lovely pie  was Tom. Emily said “alright just a bite “Then tom took a really great big bite. Suddenly Miss Rose asked if she could have a bite of her pie. so then emily said “just a bite” so then Miss Rose grabbed the pie and she‘’nibbled and grawed poked at and picked guzzled and gobbled chewed and licked.Until mostly all the pie disappeared from out of Emily's hands. When Emily’s pie was almost gone out of her hands there was only a little piece left. When she was sitting on the bench she saw 3 little birds sitting on the chair, so then the little birds got really hungry and ate all her scrumptious pie.

I am learning to find a fraction of a set by sharing equally. . .

Fireman David. . .


On Friday afternoon fireman David came in with his wife called Carmen. He came in to teach team 3 all about a firefighter's job. The fire service is always open they never shut,someone is always there!

                    What does a firefighter do?
A firefighter does lots of important things like helping people who are stuck in something that is very dangerous. They also put out fires when people are stuck in a burning house or something outside that is burning.

          What did Fireman David tell us about his job?
Fireman David explained that when he goes to sleep he gets paid every single day. He also told us that when he is training he has to be trustworthy and reliable about what he is doing.  

               What Equipment do they need?
Some of the equipment firefighters use are different kinds of vehicles to bring tools and equipment to a fire or an emergency. There are three common vehicles that are like rescue trucks or ambulances. The firefighters that work together and ride on these vehicles are called a company. Fireman David also told us that the fireman's truck is like a toolbox.

How did fireman David become a firefighter?
Fireman David became a firefighter by taking a test. You also become a firefighter by taking classes but the first thing you do was to carry a heavy person up and down the stairs. From David’s talk I realised that they had to do their hardest in their job and that they have to try out for the running maze before you could be a firefighter.
