how to make your own Rainforest

    How to make your own rainforest

The materials you need are:
Some small gravels
Some charcoal
A fish tank
Tap water
Tropical plants
Potting soil

Here’s how to make your own rainforest:

Put some charcoal in the fish tank. And spread it around and do the same thing with the potting soil. And the gravels then we put the plants into the fish tank. And added some more soil. Then we put the soil together with the plants to make the plants stand up. Then we water the plants. And that’s how you make your own rainforest.

Trees for survival

                          Trees for survival

In Auckland 40% of the land is supposed to be covered by trees. But in 2012 the statistics said that there was only 23.8% of land covered in trees.
So that means we have to plant more trees.

Tree are important because they suck up carbon dioxide and produce oxygen. Trees make food for us. Trees can stop global warming. They also provide wood for us to make houses,furniture and paper. They provide us cotton wool to make clothes too.

But if we cut more trees to make houses. There will be no oxygen and no one will survive. That’s why we have to plant more trees so we can have a balanced environment and everybody will live.

division problem

There are 48 lollies that have to be placed evenly on each sixth of the cake. How many lollies will be there on each sixth of the cake?

8 because 6x8=48  48 divided by 6=8. So 8 lollies will go on each piece of the cake.



8cm+12cm+8cm+12cm=40 cm.
3km+1km+½ km+1 ½km=6km.
6x8=48 48km.

Image result for degas and the little dancer
Today I read a book called Degas and the little dancer

This book is about a little dancer name Marie. Her dream was to be the best ballerina ever. But her parents were poor and did not have enough money. So her dad was a tailor and her mom work at the laundry. They saved money for her to go to dancing class. But there was an old man called Degas who was a painter he painted lots of picture of Marie. And he made a sculpture her. And she became the best dancer ever.

I like this book because it is interesting.A new word I

learnt was sculpture it means a statue.

Guy fawkes day

Image result for guy fawkes day
“Agrh, what is that sound?”. I could not take it so I opened the curtains and saw fireworks blazing into the sky. When the fireworks popped they made a sound like this BOOM! It was very loud but I did not care. I remembered that the fireworks where for this celebration called Guy Fawkes day. I remember celebrating Guy fawkes it was very fun. Since that celebration is cool ill ask my mum for fireworks. So I went and told mum but sadly she said that she does not have enough money to buy any. I was very disappointed but I still saw fireworks shooting into the sky which made me feel better.after that I went and went to sleep ready for school tomorrow.

In the holidays,me and family went to Tonga to see my grandpa. We had this big container full of clothes because there was a fair happening at vava’u. So we sold clothes to the people in Tonga.

When my Aunty was looking after the shop I went and looked for a food shop because I was very hungry.

Then I finally found a food shop. But right after I buyed my pie I recognise that I was LOST!. I did not know where my Aunty shop was so I asked someone if they knowed where my Aunty shop was. But when the fair was finished I could not find my mum or dad so I started to crying.

But when everyone was gone my mum saw me and then I ran up to her and said “i'm sorry mum” mum said “it’s alright but don’t run away like that okay” okay. After that me and my mum walked all the way home.

On Monday Tamaki Primary had swimming lessons at the Panmure Lagoon pools in East Auckland. Our instructor for swimming was a girl her name is Kat and there was another group and their instructor is a boy and his name is Owen.

We were very excited when we got to the pools we walk inside and change into our togs. After that we waited until the other class finished their lesson when there lesson was finished kat told us to jump into the pool . We started by doing streamlines in the pool and then we did some freestyles to the platform. It was very fun. Then we did a challenge we went to the far side and we had to try not touch the ground for 30 seconds. It was very easy for me. After that we had to freestyle all the way back and then try not to touch the floor again then we freestyled back to the platform.

After we finish that the lesson was finished so we swam out of the pools and got our plastic bags and went to the changing rooms. We saw silly people in the changing room. After all of the boys finish changing into the uniform we waited for the bus. When the bus came we were the last on the bus. After we waited for room 8 and room 5 we went on the bus. And went back to our school. After we got to school we went into our classes and waited until it was 3 pm. When it was 3pm my mum came and pick me up and my Sister and went home.

 This was the best swimming ever.

                     The end.

My poem-kites

Flying kites-Levi

Levi W8
Yesterday room 6 made kites because some people were interested in kite making. lots of people were making their kites and other people were waiting for there turn to make a kite.

These are the materials of making a kite they are strings,plastic bag,scissors,card board,silver marker,toothpicks,sticks and tape.

First you cut the cardboard into a kite shape. Then you put the cardboard onto the plastic bag then get the silver marker and trace the cardboard to make a kite shape. And then you get the scissors and cut out the traced kite. After you cut the traced kite it should look like a kite that is in half.

After that you need to open the kite and then put it back in a little bit then get the tape to hold the folded part. Then you cut the sticks and then you measure it. After you measure it you should get the sticks and then tape it onto the bit were the taped bit is. After you do the  otherside you do the next side. You have to put the smaller sticks horizon then get the tape and tape the smaller sticks.

After that you need to get the toothpick and then turn the kite the other way then make the whole where the turning bit is. Then get heaps of string then put it through the hole. Then you get a piece of paper and fold it. Then get the string and wrap it around the paper. That’s how you make a kite. After all of us made our kites we got our bags and kites and went outside. Then we flyed our kites it was very fun after that it was hometime so all of us went.

Maui and the Sun

                         Maui and the sun

“I am Maui a trickster and a powerful demigod of the wind and sea. And I am confident and a brave person. With a big massive magical fish hook. And I care about my people. And I am undefeated. I would make the sun go slow.

Days went on quickler and made people older and older. But one day Maui he was very grumpy at the sun because the sun made days very short. Maui had 4 brothers he said to his brothers “brothers I am very grumpy with that sun because he makes days too short. And we have no time to do stuff. So we should make the sun slower so he does not make time more faster. We will have to go to the cave of the sun.

But one of the brothers were very scared the brother said “but it will burn us”. But Maui said “we will make magical ropes by blessing it”. So the brothers went and looked for some flax in the afternoon. And when they came back with the flax it was almost night time. So they got two flax and then plated them. When they had finish plating they blessed the flax’s by saying a lotu (prayer in tongan).

When they had blessed the flax’s they went. It was very dark for them so they took a torch with them. When they were nearly there they were very hot and the ground was hot as well.while they were walking they found a pit but it was not just an ordinary pit it was the cave where the sun was. When they got there it was almost evening. So Maui told his brothers to build a tall rock wall so the sun does not see them. Just in time they finished building it. The sun was rising. When the sharp teeth of the sun rose, Maui said to his brothers to throw the ropes so they threw it and it went on perfectly. After that Maui got his magical fish hook that his grandpa carved for him and slapped the sun with his hook. When the sun had lost his strength Maui told his brothers to untangle the ropes so the brothers took the ropes of the sun went back home. Finally the sun went slower and the people could do all their chores.

    WALT: describe our scene for our narrative.

The rough waves were splashing onto the shore. The glistening sun reflecting on the sea. The sparkling sea shone in my face and the smell of the fresh cold breeze reminded me of winter setting in.
