Care Award

This is my CARE award task I have created with Oh Hsen. This task was to create our own task. Our DLO is about decimals. I always work with Oh Hsen in math so we thought it was a good idea.


Today, LS2 were playing Quizizz for Maths. We were practicing our basic times tables. LS2 was competing against each other. It was fun because the teachers got involved. Every one got involved which made it more fun because there were more competitors to challenge. The highest rank I got to was 3rd. I think that Thomas was the best because he is good at maths and he was always coming first.

Quick Writes

This is my work I have completed today. I worked with Reon to complete this activity. I did this today because I needed to practice writing a narrative. I had to write a short story using only 6 sentences. The first sentence had to introduce the story and the character. The second sentence had to describe where the character lives. The third describes the special talent. The fourth describes the problem. The fifth describes how the character feels and the last describes how the problem was solved. We were practicing putting descriptive language into practice.

Stig At Library

On Friday, LS1 and LS2 took a bus to the pamnure library. We were there to meet Stig Wemyss, a voice artist of the Andy Griffiths books. He hooked us in with humor and he gave out prizes. He talked to us about Borrow box and how we can download it on our Ipad. I was lucky enough to win a prize. If you want to visit Stig's site click here. When Stig was funny to watch and he played a few games with people. The first game was a game called sausage. In Sausage you can only say sausage. The next was chubby bunny. It was Latham vs Afu in that game. Afu won and they both got a prize. Everyone had a fun time with Stig because he made everyone laugh. I was happy to win a prize.

Pourquoi Story

Many hundred years ago in a country across the sea, there lived a Tongan king named Tasi. Tasi  loved the tongan community and he wanted to keep it safe. When Tasi first became King he explored the land to see what he owned. What he found is what he wanted to keep forever, a lake with the most beautiful and clear water. Tasi found out that a tribe was trying to capture the palace.

Tasi ordered his strongest men (Fokisi the main one) to go and protect the lake. All the men were ready for the attack. When the attack came all the men charged at each other and were ready to kill. Tasi was staying back and waiting for the chief to get to the gates. “You will never get past me” Shouted King Tasi “Ha ha ha I will” Boomed Chief Takalua. Then Chief Takalua started to run towards King Tasi. The men that were guarding the lake were doing a good job, Boom! There was a massive crash. The palace was being destroyed.

The palace was taken over but Fokisi ran away to find the closest village to hide. Chief Takalua was now King Takalua. The new king found the lake and wanted to make it so it ran down the ocean. King Takalua had a plan and he was sure it would work.
No one knows that king Tasi was still alive hiding until he was ready to fight.

King Takalua had plans to extend the lake to the ocean so the pure water could enter the ocean and make the water clean and healthy. Fokisi ran back to the palace to spy on the new King. Fokisi learnt their plans and knew that it was going to waste the pure water.

The news got out to Tasi that one of his men was alive and Tasi went out and looked for him. A few days later Fokisi found Tasi. Fosiki told Tasi about their plans. Tasi was angry and wanted to talk to Takalua. Tasi went back to the palace “What are you doing?” Shouted Tasi. “I am sharing pure water with everyone else” Takalua says softly. “No I won’t let you” Shouts Tasi. Tasi then throws a knife takalua.

Takalua Catches the knife and throws it back at Tasi. Tasi falls to the ground and is bleeding out, “He is now dead” Shouted King Takalua. “A new king has risen!” Screamed all of the men. The pure water entered the ocean, and every village had pure water. Everyone was happy that a new king wasn’t selfish.

Moral: Share your things with everyone because if you do you will be respected.

This is my pourquoi story that I have written. I had to write about how something came from Tonga A critical friend checked my work. He used DRAFT to edit my work. My story is about a king who won't share his pure water. I think this task was a fun task to do because it was interesting to write about Tonga.

Reading Task

These are my can do's I have completed today. I did these can do's to practice my smart searching skills and my vocabulary. My favourite can do is the fantastic facts challenge. I also had to write a new can do that our class can do. I worked with Manu for this task.

Today for maths I was working with Oh Hsen. We were learning to find place value in decimals. I had to change Decimals from word to numbers. I completed it with Oh Hsen today. I think that the maths I had to do was a bit hard because I am not really good working with decimals. After I finished I played Sumdog with Oh Hsen.

Read 20

Today LS2 were using read theory. We do this everyday for 20 minutes and LS2 call this read 20. This helps me understand the text, think about the questions that I need to answer and looking back at the text to find information that I am unsure about. You can earn points and names on this site and I think that it is a good site for me to practice my reading.

Magic Box Poem

I will put into the box ...
Fragrant roses that remind me of love from my grandma.
A touch of snow that I once felt on my fingers.
A gift that my family gives me, Love.

I will put into the box …
A ton of kindness and happiness to share around.
Something that I will never forget, Family and friends.
A memorably good horror movie.

I will put into the box …
What is right in front of me and that is the love of my video games.
The smiling faces that I have helped in my lifetime.
My great grandfather's medal from WW1

My box is fashioned with silk from a spider's web and ever lasting love, with Gold on the lid and Silver in the corners.

Its hinges are as dark as the night sky

I shall put the love of all my family in my box

This is my poem that I have completed today. I wrote what I would put in a magic box. I had to think of 12 things to put in my box. I also put some things that are important to me and my family. I liked this task because It reminded me of some fun memories.


These are my sketch note's that I have been doing for the past week. Our First sketch note was something that LS2 knew about which was Questions. The second one was about athletics, The third was about Rio and the last one was about Olympic medal Ceremony. We looked at examples and then we learnt that it doesn't have to be perfect, We could use bullet points, We can use symbols, Numbers and it has to be in our own words. LS2 Use sketch note because it is a more fun way of taking notes. It helps me understand because I can do it the way I want. Other people don't need to understand it, Only I do. It also helps me make a connection. It also tells me a learning story that I can understand. Sketch notes is way more fun than writing notes in your book. I can stay focused because I like art and drawing. You can also draw and write notes any way you like.

Cross Country Training

 On Tuesday there was cross country training. We ran around the school six times. We were doing this to practice for our real cross country. We were practicing our endurance. I did six laps around the school then I stopped. The real cross country will be hard but when I practice I get better and better
