Poppa and the cat up the tree

Book Review:
Title:Poppa and the cat up the tree
Author: John Parker
Illustrator: Bob Gagnon

Poppa was cooking and then Marmalade got frightened from Poppa’s voice and got terrified too. They went back inside and then Poppa was finished so he went back home and made breakfast, it was fish with bread and tomato sauce too.  
The Problem is that the cat got stuck up the tree and Poppa didn’t know what to do.
Poppa got the rope and aimed for the cat so then the rope broke so he tried the ladder and Poppa got the cat and went and feed him fish.
Your opinion of the story:
I very enjoyed this book because it is so funny because when Poppa was singing the cat jumped up the tree because he got a fright.

Cultural Day

On a lovely day we had cultural group day. We had to show the senior syndicate our presentations about South America. I was in Argentina, we had 4 groups in Room 3, it was Peru, Argentina, Brazil and also Colombia, it was so cool.

After Room 3 Room 6 they were doing Asia. Their groups were Thailand, China, Japan and also India. Room 7 was first to present and their groups were Spain, Greece, Italy, U.k and also Germany too.

After that we had lunch the senior syndicate had to show the whole school our cultural dance that we have learnt throughout the Term. When we went inside the hall we were so nervous and also happy at the same time. We sat down and Room 7 was first singing London bridge is falling down. Germany danced then Greece and after Greece it was Italy and last but not least it was the lovely Spain.

After that is was Room 6, they were doing India, Thailand, Japan and also China. After that it was the lovely Room three with a dance called the Samba.

St Patrick's

Film Feastival 2013

On a lovely, sunny morning the whole school went to Hoyts to see the Film Festival in Sylvia Park, we were all excited and very, very happy.

We all went down the hill from our school so we could go on to the bus, we took two buses because the whole school could not fit in one. Suddenly we heard the bus turned on and the driver took us on an adventure to the Sylvia Park Hoyts. This is our 6th time going to the Film Festival with other schools, it was fun and also funny too.

Finally we were there at the wonderful Sylvia Park Hoyts in Auckland. We were very nervous because our movie might be boring and people might laugh at our Room 3 movie as well, so that is why we were nervous.
We went inside and started to sit down on the chairs so we could watch the wonderful movies that kids have made for other people to watch. After we watched all of the films we started to pack up because other schools were coming to watch movies to. We went back to the bus so we could go back to our school.

I felt very very happy because our movie was so cool and very awesome as well.

My favourite movie was Room 6’s one because it was funny and also cool to. Mr Slade scared Simione and also Leki which was so funny.

On a lovely morning I said to myself “yes,” because we were playing SQUASH!!!

Just after morning tea we all went and line up in front of the classroom and waited for Miss G to come and open the door for us. Then when we went inside we all sat down on the mat and then we waited for Miss G to tell us what to do and where we are going.

When we got into the hall there were 2 people there and there names are Phil and Michael.

Girl: Nicole Davids.
Boy: Ramy Ashour .

For squash you need to wear sport shoes, a t-shirt, glasses and also some sorts.

Squash was invented by a school called Harrow school in the year of 1830,when the pupils discovered that a punctured Rackets ball,  “squashed” on impact with the wall.

Harrow school is in England it is only for the boys but not the girls.

So any way when we were playing squash I felt happy because it was my first time playing squash and I was tired too because I had to run around the court for the ball and hit it back to the wall

After that we played a game and that was Kings Court, when we played it I was so sweaty that I could not run for the ball any more.

Anyways it was still fun and I can’t wait until I join the squash club at the YMCA Lagoon gym and I am so happy and I can’t wait to meet new people their.

I wish we could have the squash sport for EVER AND EVER!!!
                         The End.

Feast Day of Saint Pius

On a lovely friday morning we had a beautiful mass in the church. When we went to go to church we went through the corridor because it was raining hard out.

When we were in the corridor it was so hot and I could not breath anymore because the Room six people was squashing Room three in.
When Room six left I could breath because it was not crowded. We went to the church and when we were at the church it started to pour with rain even more, when it poured I was all wet and my shoes were wet too.

When we got inside it started to dry up and it was not wet anymore but my hair was so wet that I could not dry it at all.

After we had mass we all went to the hall because we had to eat some cake for Saint Pius X birthday. When we ate the cake it had white topping and it was banana cake on the bottom. When I ate the piece the cake part was so delicious but the topping was not because it tasted like mayonnaise, but yuckier.

When we finished the cake Room three was the first one that went to morning tea and all of the other Room’s were still eating all of the cake with the teachers. When they ate all of the cake there was only three more pieces left and I wanted it but Mr slade took it and ran away and ate it all.

X Country

It was Tuesday morning, I started to scream because it was cross country and I didn’t want to go because I was so tired.

When we started the cross country I heard a strange word that came out of Miss G’s mouth and that word was “on your marks, get set go”. We all ran to the bottom of the hill.

When we were at the bottom of the hill Mr Coakley said to us that we needed to jog when we are going to a turn in a street and he also said to listen to the St Mary’s College girls and also to listen to Mrs Hoggin’s too.

When we were running it was only me and Viliami that were last but when we turned I was with Misiotei and Frank and also Simione , but Viliami was behind.

When we were almost at the hill I rushed up to Miss G and Miss G said to me that I was very good in the cross country.
