Nikita`s Manaiakalani Refletion

I think that i am getting better at math compared to last year. I have achieved a lot of math this time. Last year I was terrible it was like a girl broke something. That`s how I achieved math. By listening and focusing.   

I think that my learning amazing because it helps you learn more and think more. More working and less silliness. Learning is fun to do because you get to SHARE,CREATE AND LEARN.

The thing that surprised me was when i could be with my favourite teacher. And improving achieving  at working hard and trying my best at everything that i can't do at all.

The thing that i had enjoyed doing more was 20% time. Because movies are really cool to do.Keep cool. Movies are so cool to make with your family

My goal for 2013 is worry about myself and focus on the teacher's mouth. And finish it off properly and finish with pride. And be yourself and stay yourself.

Having a netbook is cooler than pencil and paper because, on our netbooks we can go on internet and go on our blogs and see if someone has commented on something. And there are keys to type on. Pencil and paper is very difficult to me.

The best thing in Yr 5 is making movies because you get to edit the movies. Also you can share them on your blog so the whole world can see your work and leave a comment. People can see everything that you have worked at, archived at and what you have succeed at.  


This is a Picture with all shorts of shapes. Miss King has showed as a site called TANGRAMS. It is  where you make somethings out of 7 shapes all of them.
So here is a link for you to go and have a try at making it.

Our teacher said "on your marks" "get set" and that is when the clappers went. Off I go running down my lane.I was very shy but I said to myself “i can do it,i know i can” I said.

We were doing the 100 meters race that means we have to go right to the end.I came no where but I am still happy of myself.I tried my best and tried my hardest but I couldn't make it that far.I am still proud,happy,lovely and lovely girl.I wish my mum and little brother we're here to see my race.But I concentrated on my race.You all know that you can achieve you goals and keep keep on trying your hardest you can do it.

Scary Doll Retail

The town was empty no one was there just Alma. She felt very strange and weird too. Her mum told her to go out and win something.
While Alma was skipping in the freezing cold snow, she came to a large blackboard. Pulling a chalk out of her pocket, she wrote her name  - ALMA. Fabulous!!.

Hearing a strange sound, Alma went to the doll shop  window and wiped the snow off it. Up came a doll. Alma was surprised that this doll had the same colour hair. She had everything the same,  but not the right coloured eyes. Alma was very attracted to the doll, she really wanted to have it. Trying to open the door, Alma was angry. It was locked! She made a snow ball and chucked it on the door. Bam!! The door opened.

Alma was very happy. She opened the door and went inside. Dolls were everywhere, she was completely surrounded. Alma spotted her doll in the middle of the shop. While walking towards it,  she bumped into a boy on a bike. She lifted it up and it went right to the door he was warning Alma. But Alma was only interested in the doll that looked just like her. Alam looked up and the doll disappeared out of her sight. She was looking everywhere but it wasn't there. She found it up on the shelves.

Alam climbed up a chair and took one mitten off her hands. She was reaching and reaching and she got up towards her eyes and ZAP!!!! she went in. Heavy breathing she couldn't move anything except her eyes. She knew that that little boy on the bike was warning her. Then a new doll came up from the basement

Charlie And The Chocolate Factory Retail

Poor Charlie hadn't eaten anything,his tummy was rumbling. While walking along the street, Charlie noticed something. He bent down and saw a silver coin in the drain. He grabbed it and went off feeling a little bit lucky........

As Charlie walked into the shop, he quickly thought  about which chocolate bar he wanted. He wanted the biggest one they had. “May I have a bar of scrumdiddlyumptious chocolate please? ” he asked the shopkeeper nicely. “ Sure you may” replied the shopkeeper. “Here you go” “Thank you” said Charlie “You're welcome” called the shopkeeper.

Ripping the wrapper off, Charlie shoved it in and didn't bother thinking if he had missed something. Charlie was very rude eating the chocolate greedly in the front of people.He walked out and thought “Should I get one more?” So Charlie went back and bought another one for Grandpa Joe. ”I would like to get one more please? “Sure” said the man giving Charlie the chocolate.

After Charlie had bought Grandpa Joe`s bar of chocolate, he walked slowly out the door. He saw a crowd gathering around the newspaper guy. ”Hey what's this yapping about?” asked Charlie “Have you read the newspaper. It said The Fifth Ticket was fake?” Charlie realised that he still had a chance to get that last ticket.

Charlie took the chocolate out of his bag and ripped the first layer. Carefully, Charlie opened the corner of the bar of chocolate. And there it was the last  golden ticket. Giving Charlie a huge fright, a lady pulled his arm and said “he`s got it he`s got it” Charlie was very frightened by the crowd of jostling people. ”Hey leave him alone” yelled the newspaper man. Charlie was pushing and trying to get through the crowd. ”Run home Charlie and don`t stop until to get there”.

The Halloween Fight

Dressing up for Halloween we got our costumes. I was a Clown with a colorful wig and my brother was a stupid ugly Ninja.While walking home with a big bucket of halloween lollies I quickly snatched the lollies off him.”Give it back” said my brother “No you don't deserve it I'm the oldest one so I should get it” I replied selfishly. Mum came out, slapped me and my brother on the head, took the lollies and sent us to our room.

Re Crafting

Today we practiced re crafting a piece of writing.The first paragraph belongs to Aldora and the second is mine.  

“Oh my god” I said, I never knew cross country was going to be so hard and long. When I got half way I started to sprint so I could catch up to some girls but sadly I didn’t. I was getting closer to the finish line and I was so proud of myself.

Re crafting:
Have you ever ran  through a muddy cross-country before?
Running along,I never Imagined the cross - country would  be so challenging.It felt like it would take the rest of my life to get to the finish line.Powerfully,I tried to catch up to the other girls,but was so exhausted that I could`nt.

The 110m Hurdles

Feeling really puffed up and scared, I am getting ready at the starting blocks. With the crowd’s expectations on my shoulders Can he win the 110m hurdles? TAKE YOUR MARKS, GET SET, GO!!!!!!!

As I crashed into a hurdle I felt very stupid as I had let my country down. Hurting my achilles tendon, my leg hurt really bad. So I sat on the ground just doing nothing.

As I thought about whether my country would kill me I hopped out of the stadium with embarrassment and disappointed. Along came two other competitors and helped me. In my head I was thanking them for being good friends.

Cross Country Training

Waiting to go to cross country I was giggling and laughing as hard as I could. We are always the last classroom to get to the courts. Walking to the courts we finally got there and sat down as quickly as possible.

Running down the road my feet were pounding and aching.Catching up to my friends I was hating this exercise. I didn't  like it at all. In my head I was thinking I can’t do another lap?

Struggling to breath as I finally reached the courts my heart was beating as fast as it could.
I hope I'm sick tomorrow so I won't have to run this far again. My cross country goal is to try my best in running.

My Math Lesson

Here is something that me and my group has done

Monday, 30 July 2012

The Flaming Torch

The Olympic flame started at the ancient Olympic games which was in Olympia, Greece.The first touch was ignited by the sun. In the closing of the Olympic games they were putting the flames out.

Nowadays, the tradition continues, 4 months until the Olympic games women were dressed in ancient style robes these women were lighting the touch just by using a curved mirror and the sun. When the torch was lit the women passed it to the runner and it keeps on going until they get to host city.

The most important thing about the opening ceremony is lighting the flames.It burns for two weeks until the Olympic games have concluded.

My Artwork About Flowers

As we started painting our backgrounds we used vibrant colours

Making petals with tissues looked very hard to do.

While gluing the parts of the flower onto the cardboard, we had to make sure that there were no bumps.

Finally the last step was painting our flowers with dark and light colours.

Melted Crayons

As Art Alive started to be our topic for this term,room 13  made incredible melted crayons.

Gluing the crayons on the cardboard with hot glue was very sticky and icky.While I was doing that,Marama picked a stencil up and put it down on the canvas and she started to paint. But I heard Miss King telling us a tip, she said make sure you do not move the stencil or it will come out disgusting. As Marama started to finish, we carefully picked up the stencil and our word came out perfectly.

Melting the crayons with a hair dryer,took a while, but after a few minutes they started to melt a lot of the crayons. But the glue did not stick properly because we didn’t put enough glue on the crayons.

As we started to finish ,we noticed our piece of art was looking horrible, I couldn’t even look at it. But it was still fun.

How to make a glow stick

The movie  I watched was really really cool, because it was about making a glow stick. I really enjoyed it very much.This video was a chemistry experiment.In a glow stick it is about what goes into the glow stick and what the ingredients do to it.Did you know that if you do not put any dye in your glow stick it will not glow.But if you do it will have energy and it will glow.

Get Lost

My team went off to play get lost. First we had to get into a group of four. We had to go down to the beach and sing the national anthem to Mr Marks. Next, we had to dress up someone in our group and that was DJ, we dressed her up like Angelina Jolie. After that we had to eat disgusting frog eggs! Every time we did something we got the teachers to sign our paper. It was so fun playing 'Get Lost'.


When the Repectstars went kayaking I was so scared because it was my first time kayaking. I didn’t like the way that people were crashing into my boat, luckily I had a life jacket to keep me safe from the water. It helped that I had a partner who had kayaked before. I really liked kayaking because we had a swim at the end of our lesson.

Dr Ben Carson

On the 6th of march Pt  England School were going to see Dr Ben Carson. First we got in a bus then drove down to the Telstra Clear Pacific Events Centre. We got out of the bus and lined up and there were heaps of schools there too. After that we went inside the stadium and sat down on flash chairs. then everyone had to sing the Duffy song.

In the Centre Dr Ben Carson came and told us about his life.Because when he was a child he went to school and he thought he was the dummy in his classroom. Ben’s mum encouraged him to go to the library where he  taught himself to read. Working really hard he eventually became a brain surgeon.

The Picnic

Running down to the sand was amazing.I was helping my friend out,and we were putting sand around her whole body and  made her a nice pillow out of sand. As she got up
she busted it down and I had to start all over again!!.

I am trying to get this clay out of the cliff, but it’s so hard. Someone came up and told me that if I \ put water on the clay and it will come out much easier. Unfortunately I didn’t get any water because I couldn’t find a bucket. Looking in the sand, I found two clay balls that people had left behind.

Finally I went back to our shady tree and got my morning tea out of my bag. I was starving.
