”Let the senior school prize giving begin‘‘ Mr Burt said with devotion. It was our school annual prize giving night. The families and parents were very excited to see our performance and see their child receive an award. As the kapa haka finished with an emotional item,it was time for the year 5&6 class awards to be handed out.   

I think that the year 5 item was cool because they had cool song and amazing dance moves. It was time for the team 4 sports awards which was one of the highlights that I enjoyed.4 or 5 student of team 4 got 3 or 4 awards with trophies.When it was time for the sportswoman and sportsman of the year nominees, I thought that it was a close pick between Jarvan and Kosini because they are both superb at playing sports, but Jarvan took it out and won sportsman of the year.Time for the sportswoman of the year and the closest one was Faioso and Samoa because they both played most sport, but Faioso won the trophy and got sportswoman of the year. The year six item was up next. ‘‘WOOHOO GO Faioso’’ As I shouted when the year 6’s walked up the stage.As the item finished, I think that the year 6 item was the best cause they had very cool songs and amazing dance moves.

It was time for team 5 class awards. ‘‘For 100% attendance Taunese Leitufia’’. ‘‘WOOHOO SHOT NESE’’. Me and friends yelled as loud as we could.We were so proud of Taunese when she got an award. As the class awards went by, me and my friends cheered for when our classmates and other friends got an award.It was time for the year 7’s to do their performance, I was so nervous when I was on stage but as the dance was finishing I felt normal.‘‘YEAHHH GO NESE’’. As the year 8’s walked up stage I felt sad but happy at the same time because this was the year 8’s last prize giving for this year. When Ryan raped to the song it was really cool and awesome. Uli came to the front and sang part of the song to see you again.

As prize giving nearly finished Mrs Burt welcomed a lady from Tamaki College to announce who would get a scholarship to Tamaki College. The people who got scholarships to TC was Taunese,Elizabeth,Promise,Liz U and Marilyn.‘‘ YAYYYY’’ I was so pleased that they got scholarship to TC. Prize giving slightly was finishing and we finished it off by singing our school song. The parents were taking videos and taking photo’s of us when we singing our school song.I’m pleased about myself because I got chosen to be one of our school House captain for 2017.

John Key

WALT: Update our self's in current events.

Yesterday John Key resigned as New Zealand prime minister because he said ‘‘ It was time to take a step in his career and spend more time at home with his family. He has spent 10 years including 2016 as leader of the national part.A Prime Minister's duties include presiding over Cabinet meetings, meeting official foreign delegations to Ottawa and answering questions in the House of Commons.

If I was prime minister I care more about homeless, work on what people are getting compared to what other people are getting and also rivers.In the rivers we have to stop polluting the water and take care of the water works.I don’t think that I would do the right maths to figure out the amount of money, for anything that needs to be provided for the river procedure.

If I were prime minister I would make more homeless shelters in New Zealand.In the shelters they would provide food, clothes warmth and much more.I would try my very best to give more jobs to the homeless.All these things can change with a little bit of hope.

Fast Rust

Fast Rust Task


Work on this Doc together with a partner.

What 3 ingredients are needed for rust to occur.

Write a brief paragraph explaining the rusting process (why rusting occurs)
When oxygen from the air mixes with water, the iron surface reacts with the oxygen mixed in the water. It form iron oxide - red stuff we call (Rust). The process continues until the water is gone. Other metals corrode in different ways, but only metals with iron in them can rust.       

How could you prevent something from rusting?
If a chain on a bicycle rust, the putting oil on will the bike better and will protect the chain from rusting again

Write 3 sentences explaining something new you’ve learned from this reading.
Something new I’ve learnt about was that iron, water, and oxygen makes iron rust.

Using iron, water, and salt will make iron rust even faster.

Using Zinc or paint to protect a iron will not make the iron rust.

State Of Matter

States of matter
Give three examples of each state of matter?


What’s the difference between the three states of matter?
  • Solids can’t be poured like liquid could.
  • (solid)Ice can be melt into water(liquid)
  • Liquids can change into gas by using  a kettle to boil hot water. Then you can see stream which is gas.
  • Gas has less space left by atoms so that's why it spreads out more than solid and liquid.

Write 3 sentences explaining something new you learned from this reading.
  • Molecule in a solid, can barely move because all atoms are linked as close.

  • 3 states of matter can change into a different state of matter like (liquid) water changes into (gas)steam

  • (liquid)Water cycle - When a cloud is heavy it lets the water go known as the “rain”. The rain goes down to the ocean and the sun slowly sucks up the water(steam) and slowly make a cloud.

  • Something new I just learnt is that there are 5 states of matter. Solid, Liquid, Gas, Plasma, Be condensates.     

  • Sometimes solids can turn directly into a gas through a process called sublimation.

Word meaning:

What is matter -Matter exists in 3 states, Solid, Liquid, and Gas . Matter is everything, it can be hard, soft, any colour, or even invisible (air). Matter also takes up space or has mass. The molecules in solid can barely move.
3 states of matter
  • Solid - Solid is one of the 3 states of matter. Solid takes up space and never leaves space.  Ex; wood, tablet, rocks, cool ice, iron. Anything hard. It’s molecule are linked together and are usually packed very close.
  • Liquid -

Other words and meanings:
Molecules - A group of atoms combined together representing the smallest fundamental unit of a chemical compound that take part in a chemical reaction

Atoms - The smallest particle of a chemical element that can exist.

Plasma - Colourless watery fluid of blood and lymph containing no cells and in which for example plasma make stars and sun, lightening, the solar winds and more.

Matter - Matter is anything that takes up space and has mass which is weight.

Humid - Humid is when their is high level of water in the atmosphere.

Condensation - Condensation means when water collects droplets on a cold surface when humid air is in contact with it.

Sublimation - Sublimation is when anything solid turns into a gas without first becoming liquid, When the surface layer of snow or ice turns into fog or steam without melting.

Evaporation - The act of turning from a liquid to gas.

What is water made out of? H2O (Hydrogen 2 Oxygen) Water is made out of Hydrogen where there is only 2 atoms where in Oxygen only has 1 atom

Particles - A minute portion of matter
