Netbook Refleaction

This year I have really have enjoy having a Netbook to work on because …

Having a Net Book is so easier to type faster, and make my work neat. I like sharing documents and do some writing with my friends. My favourite thing about having a Net Book is how you share your story with the world.

I really don’t like my Internet, when it is so slow. The biggest problem is when I can not do my work and think about playing games. Playing is cool, but I can concentrate in my work. The other problem is when it has a red dot of line that means I have done an mistake, it always appears in my document.

When I am on my Net Book, I always go play games. Playing games is so fun, but I have to do my work. Sometimes when I do my work I play games and when I show my work to the teacher,
the teacher says it does not make sense.

If we had to stop our Net Book and go back to paper and pencils I will be a bit sad because Net Book is so much better than paper and pencils. When I write with paper and pencils my right hand hurts and left hand doesn't.

Outta This World


Venus, is the hottest planet that you could die in and melt. It is the number second closest to the sun, even though Mercury is the closest planet to the sun, Venus is still the hottest one.Venus is made out of volcanoes. All the volcanoes is hot, that is why Venus is hot. It is made out of red rocks.


We get a strong, long straw from earth, and put in to Venus, and tip in some cold fresh air.Venus is so hot, that is why I will get the largest straw and tip in cold fresh air. Nice and cold air.

The way to get more cold drinks is to by the largest balloon and blow it, then the air will go through the straw to Venus. Venus is so hot, that is why I will really want to do this.

The way to stop making Venus hot is to get the largest bottle of fanta and tip it in to Venus. The way to stop the volcanoes to stop exploding, is to dig the lava out and put in to Uranus and Neptune.

Favourite Solution

My best solution is to get the largest bottle of fanta and tip it into Venus, is because I will some times swim in it, and sometimes drink in it.The reason why I want to tip fanta in Venus, is because, if I just put in oxygen in to Venus I will still melt and die.

Ice Cream Comets

“Have you ever made icy cold comets”
Room 13 made comets made out of icy cold ice cream with a cone. We made our comets out in our classroom bay.

Our materials were colourful sprinkles, ice cream cone, ice cream and crumble biscuits.
Staring at the material looks just like I want to eat it. “Outta Space”Ms King shouted, I knew it, it was our team.

Watching Ms King scooping the ice cream onto my hand, I felt to nervous. “It’s too cold” I nervously said. Walking to Whaea Janeille to get our cones, I first had to first walk and get some sprinkle. It looked delicious.

Chocolate ice slurped down through my fingers, “I need tissues for my hand!” I shouted. Licking the ice cream was so delicious and cold.Yum.

Looking at the sticky mess at the floor I just wanted to clean it up. Ice cream was melting and dripping down my fingers, I sucked it all in my mouth. “I want to be the last one finished” I said.

Sticking out my tongue, I gobbled all the biscuits up. Chewing it softly, Ms King said “Whoever is finished has to go and pick up ten pieces of rubbish.” I just continued to eat it slowly.

“Yay, I’m the last one” I whispered. “Hurry up” Ms King said, but I still ate a bit slow. “Finished” I shouted. I had to run inside.

Running inside I saw my class talking about what we made. I was thirsty. I went and had a drink. I really like ice cream comets.

Alien Snot

“Have you ever seen alien snot, I can tell you some information.” “Yuck”, alien snot, Room 13 made fake alien gooey snots. We were making green smelly snots.

Our materials were 1 cup of cornflour,a little bit of water and green food colouring. We also need a bowl,spoon. Only three ingredients, easy.

We made our one with groups of four or five.Step 1, we made 1 cup of cornflour then stir.Step 2, a little bit of water into the bowl.Last step,is the green coloured food. Mix them all together and then it’s gooey.

Putting everything back was just fun. Washing my hand I could not get all the snot on my hand.Now I had to clean up with the other boys till it’s clean.While we were cleaning up the rest had to do some works.

Immersion Assembly

Hooray! It is finally Immersion Assembly a new topic.It is my favourite school assembly.

I was sitting in our school hall on the floor listening to Mr Burt talk. Mr Burt introducing the topic, I was excited to hear it. The topic was Outta This World.

Teachers dressing into ballerina I thought they had a movie for us to wacth. Team One’s dress was so cool.My best dress was Team Four.

My best item was team five. Team Five’s item was a star wars movie. Their was sort of like the real one but with their own faces.

I think this might a little bit like last year.Last years one was Mighty Manners.Mighty Manners is about the planet we are living at so far.

I’m so exited to write and learn more things about planets just like an astronauts teacher.I just want to stay in this topic because it is great.My best term.

I hope to learn who was the first one to stand on it.
The thing I really want to learn about Jupiter.My last planet the sun.

Space Shuttle

With sweat pouring off my forehead, I walked into the space ship looking around at all the cool stuff. I sat on the chair nervously ready for ignition. Shaking with fear I was exited to explore to space.

Preparing to launch I shake and shudder like I will die. I felt like I’m nearly heating to death but I had a very bad stomach shuddering. Waiting to explore I looked out the window to my family.

Counting down,3,2,1, the sound came, Ignition!, I was shaking and screaming.”It’s going too fast”I shouted.Trails of smoke making lines all the way to the sky. Hearing the fire stop, the rocket cut through the sky, ”We’re in space” I excitedly said.

In space I think it is going to a great time.I hope I will learn more about planets.

My Favorite 3 Recipes

Choc-banana pikelets

Kids will enjoy making these fruit-filled pikelets – with chocolate! – as a special breakfast treat.


  • 1 cup self-raising flour

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

  • 2/3 cup trim milk

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate bits

  • oil spray

  • 1 large banana, cut in 24 slices

  • 150g vanilla fromage frais (we used Frûche)

  • 1 cup mixed berries (use frozen if you like)


Step 1 Sift flour and brown sugar into a large bowl. Whisk in milk and egg until smooth. Gently stir in chocolate bits.

Step 2 Place a frying pan over a medium-high heat and spray with oil. Drop 2 tablespoons batter into pan. Top with 3 banana slices. Cook for 1-2 minutes until bubbles appear on surface. Flip and cook for 1-2 more minutes. Repeat process to make 8 pikelets.

Step 3 Serve pikelets topped with fromage frais and berries (or other fruit if you prefer).

Joshua ‘s roll up


  • 500g meat (pork, chicken, fish, beef or any sliced meat from the deli), cut in strips

  • spicy seasoning (Joshua likes Signature Range spicy barbecue seasoning)

  • fresh herbs (your choice)

  • 1 packet baby spinach or lettuce

  • light mayonnaise or dressing

  • 6 tortillas or mountain bread

  • 1 container hummus

cheese (optional)Baking blind:InstructionsStep 1 Cook meat and add seasoning. Set aside.

Step 2 Mix spinach or lettuce with your favourite dressing to coat leaves.

Step 3 Place tortillas on plates and cover with hummus. Place meat all over, then spinach or lettuce, herbs Step 4 Roll carefully and cut if needed. Enjoy!and cheese (if using). Squirt mayonnaise on top.

Smoked chicken


  • oil for greasing the tins

  • 225g plain flour, plus a little for rolling

  • pinch salt

  • 115g reduced-fat spread (I used Logical lite)

  • 2 teaspoons oil

  • 2 spring onions, sliced

  • 1/2 red onion, diced

  • 4 whole sweet peppers, chopped (see Fantastic Finds)

  • 150g smoked chicken, diced

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 teaspoon mixed dried herbs

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1 cup grated edam cheese

You can make these tasty tarts in one large flan dish instead of the individual ones, but you will need to increase the cooking time by 10-15 minutes.

You will need 4 x 12cm tins or 1 x 24cm tin. Loose-bottomed flan dishes are a good buy for making these types of flans.

Preheat the oven to 190°C. Lightly grease the tins.

Sift the flour and salt into a bowl and make the pastry by rubbing in the reduced-fat spread to form breadcrumbs. Stir in enough water to make a soft dough – this is about 3 tablespoons. Bring the dough together with your hands and knead for a few minutes on a lightly floured surface. Divide the pastry into 4 even-sized pieces. Roll out each piece of pastry slightly larger than the tins. Use the pastry to line each tin, gently pressing the pastry against the side of the tin so there are no gaps between pastry and tin. Trim any overhanging pastry away using a sharp knife to leave a neat edge, and discard the leftovers. Chill in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes to rest the pastry. This helps to minimize shrinkage during baking. Bake blind (see below) for 15 minutes. Remove the beans. This is now ready for the filling.

Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Heat the oil in a pan and soften the onions. Add the peppers and cook for a further few minutes. Add the chicken and cook for a final 3-4 minutes.

Divide the mixture between the cases and press down slightly. Mix the eggs together with the milk. Season with herbs, salt and pepper and pour over the chicken and vegetables. The liquid should stop just below the pastry line.

Sprinkle with the cheese and cook for 25 minutes until golden brown, firm to touch and lightly puffed up. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from the tins.

Serve with a tossed green salad.

Room thirteen did badminton every Thursday, if you don ‘t know about Badminton I will tell you guys. Whizzing and whirring the shuttle soar spiraling accurately to the target. Donna the Auckland sport badminton teacher taught us how to serve the shuttle. “You guys must be careful for your racket or else you swing and then it hits somebody”, “yes” we answered. We learned the trick shot, it was a bit hard for me and my partner Vaifoa. He made a powerful hit to me and then I WHACKED !!! the shuttle with my racket to him and he got frustrating. “Stop” Donna shouted to us. The next step we did was forehand, it was a little bit hard for me.Back and forth I use great to acrruately hit the shuttle eye coordination. “Stop” she said again to us. And finally we get to play badminton soccer. That game is like tennis, but I thought it was like Hockey and it wasn't. When it was my turn I went straight out because I did not concentrate and keep my eye on the shuttle. Our highest score was Uili because he almost stayed on the game the whole time. When I hit it, it had a pinging sound. Badminton is a very fun sport to play because it is so easy. That was our day with Donna that day.

William Webb Ellis

The game of football was played at Rugby School from 1750 to 1869. The game had no fixed limit of players with enormous rolling mauls, caused many major injures.
During the game of football in 1823 a boy called William Webb Ellis caught the ball and started running with it to the other team’s goal post.”What is he doing?” one of his friend said as he looked at him running to the try.
And that is how rugby got to be a game.

water that can wash every single foot that gets dirty and sticky.
