The Best day of my life with my family

 The best day with my family

The best day of my life was when my family and I went to Whangarei.  It was a long two hour drive and we went there in the afternoon. We were so excited because we had not gone up north before.

 We were so tired that when we got there we fell asleep in a motel that was big enough for my family and I to stay in. But we all had separate accommodation and my sisters shared rooms and my brothers shared their room but my Aunty and Mom and dad slept in the bottom of the motel.

The next morning we went to a garden that was so beautiful and gorgeous. It had a bridge and my brother was wobbling so much on the bridge and making it shake. My  sister and I got scared. 

After that we had a picnic under the trees. We ate some delicious cupcakes sandwiches and some burgers and drank some water and fizzy drinks. I was so full that I fell asleep in the van.

Later that day my family and I went back home to Auckland and we felt so good because of that holiday. It was the first time we’d been out of Auckland and I hope one day we can try a new place again.

My Whakapapa Journey. By Joyla

Hello my name is Joyla. I am Tongan, Fijian and British. As you can see there is a big koru in my drawing because those are my grandparents that live in Sydney, Tonga and America. My dad Tone eats vegetables and he trains my sister Eti for her rugby games. He goes to the gym to be strong because he thinks he is not strong enough. He is loving and caring. My Mom Seinei is the best. She always works hard and takes good care of us when my dad goes to work. She will let us have a talk if something is wrong. 

My sister Eti is strong. She always goes with my dad to Dunkirk to train for her rugby games. She braids my hair when my hair is bushy. My sister Ana stands up for me when I get bullied. She also comes with me to turn on the lights when we finish watching a scary movie.

My sister Lesieli is so kind and sometimes she takes us to her ballerina practice and to her ballerina dances.

 She has taken Ana and I to the snow planet before. My Brother Tevita is the best. He lets me go to the shops with him. He buys us lollies from the shops and he gives my mom money to buy us food. 

My Brother Patelesio can be so annoying because he uses us as a boxing shield!. My little sister Oliveta is so kind because she shares her stuff with me.

 My sister Ana and Eti’s last name is different to mine because their last name is my mom's last name but my brother and my last name is my dad's. The two hearts remember my family members who have died from sickness and cancer. Family is important to others.

How Volcano Works?

In Room 2 we are interested how volcano works?
When the volcano erupts the hot lava pours down the sides of the mountains like a stream. the glowing hot ash shoots high up into the air. the atmosphere gets warmer and warmer and the ice melts.  The ice flows into the sea. The sea rises and the flat islands disappear under the sea.

Why Littering At the Beach is Bad?

Learning Goal: We are learning to write a persuasive text.
Success criteria: I know I can do this when I can express my point of view and support it with evidence. 

I believe that littering at the beach is nasty. When people leave their old fishing nets in the sea the turtles get tangled in it and they die. The plastic bags are horrible because it get stuck over the heads of the turtles and other sea creatures . They suffocate and die. 
I believe that people should pick up their rubbish and take it home. We need a clean and safe beach for everyone to enjoy.

Today is a very hot day. The fiery sun burns my skin and makes me sweaty. When I roll on the green green grass it feels like a soft carpet. It is very hot so I drink lots of water. I play under the shade and I can hear the leaves rustling. I can see the birds gliding across the sky. 

Mu family Trip To The Beach

Learning goalWe are learning to write a descriptive text.
Success criteria: We can do this when we can use describing  words.
In the weekend my family and I went to the beach. 
When we got there we ran on the sand and it was hot. I went for a swim. I felt cold and goose bumps. The waves splashed on the sand. The sea shells sparkled in the sun. I heard the seagulls squawked in the sky. I ate sausages and it tasted like pork. I had ice-cream and it looked like a mountain because it had three scoops on the cone.
I had a fun day at the beach.
