Week One - Day One SLJ: In the Beginning

This story dates back Way way back about 700 years ago. New Zealand was discovered,
and settled by a group of Polynesians according to most people in new Zealand.
They had to master teamwork, because if they use team than that will make their dream work.
So what they did was teamwork, and they assembled a very special culture that we still know
today Maori. There is a Maori dance which is named the haka, there are more than one haka.
The haka first haka was made in 19th century.

The first settlers to come to New Zealand must have been really brave!
They had to leave their own homes, and go sail thousands of miles across the ocean.
It is amazing that they have did that. They sailed on a boat called a waka to new Zealand.

Bonus Activities
From this very day people actually still use this boat called a waka to go places to archive stuff,
and for special things like ceremonies and more. They used it for Waka ama.
Waka ama is a competition where ladies, and men compete to get to the finish line first  

Here's a video WAKA AMA.

Walt: write a detailed narrative from a sentence starter  Walt: use descriptive words to make a narrative more exciting
Once there were 2 boys named Charlie, and Dave. They had one hobby they love to do which was exploring caves. They would do almost anything to go explore caves. Their dad finally gave them the opportunity to go cave exploring.

On One saturday morning they finally got to go to caves. They got their gear for The trip. ¨Bye Dad¨ Charlie said as they walked out the door. 5 minutes later They finally got to their destination. They found the cave they wanted to go in.

BANG BANG! ¨Did You hear That??¨ Dave Nervously said with fear. Of course I did, Charlie Said. They were nervous. The sound sounded like a gunshot but not really. They stand still trying to listen.

Another One But even Louder and his also banged 4 times. BANG BANG BANG BANG. Nobody even  knew what is was. There were so Scared of the

There Was a dark shadow moving from side to side rapidly. There heart dropped Because of the speed  The shadow was moving. They thought no way that's Human or animal. They tried to escape but they were too slow.

It was so embarrassing for them. They decided to walk home and keep the story a secret. This was a day they will never forget. The End.

Scary Attic

In one spooky halloween night Daddy told me never to go in the attic, but I wanted to see what was always making that weird noise. It kind of sounded like a cow, and I wanted to see the cow, so I opened the attic door and tiptoed up a bit. I didn’t see a cow at all. It was disappointing. and then Daddy yanked me out of the attic and gave me a big big growling. Daddy had never ever gave me a growling like that before, and it made me sad and I cried. Then Daddy told me never to go into the attic ever again, and she gave me a cookie. That made me feel better, so I didn’t ask her why the weird creepy boy in the attic was making weird noises like a cow, or why he had no arms or legs.
Taskdescription: Here is a made up story where on Halloween a boy was making weird cow noises. Oh and he didn't have any arms or legs. I was so excited to see the cow, but instead i saw a weird kid. So dad just pulled me and yell at me for going in there, He also told me not to go in there until 1 am in the morning. It was interesting. Now i Listen to what my dad says because i never know when something like that will happen

Going to Samoa Tomorrow

Hello Blog viewers This blog post is about going to Samoa. Thats right tomorrow Im going to Samoa for the holiday. This is my 2nd time going to Samoa. my family and i have to wake up early in the morning and pack our stuff than leave from home to the airport.

My dad has booked a resort for us for one week. IT'll be fun. I really wish i could blog in Samoa but they do not have any internet  unfortunately i have to buy the internet for a sertent amount of time.

When I get in the hotel resort I am straight to the bed sleeping because i already know Im gonna get tired. every time i go to another country or continent I get tired just because of the long flight. It take 4-3 hours to get to Samoa that might seem short but it is long if you think about it twice.

I think the funnest part of going to Samoa is the resort because we get to play on the pool anytime. Our family will be split in rooms but we need to know who we will be sleeping with.

After one week We pack our bags again and go sleep with our family in Samoa for another 1 week. I cannot wait to see my kind cousin called Henry, and his brothers, damon, and harry. They are so lovely but loud.

Than there are my other cousins the naughty ones. balepa, lordas, and finau. They are naughty but really kind to me. They now can speak English while Henry, damon, and harry can already speak English.

Thanks for reading if you are please comment i will write about my experiance when i come back on sunday, thank you so much.

Stardome trip

On Thursday The year 5 and 6’s Went to stardom. We had to pay 3 dollars. We got there by bus. We have 6 groups , and i was in group 4 with , Jayden, Amelia, Naomi, Rosaleen, and Daniella.

When we first got there we had to wait because we arrived very early, so miss stickland told us to play on their playground to kill time. There was a flying fox, a spider web, and a octopus. I just played on the flying fox because it looked fun. Miss stick-land called us back in.

There was a lady That took us in I don't know what her name was. She Told us to go inside stardom and look at the Creations. It took about 15 - 20 minutes to look at the place it was so amazing. There was a screen That showed all the people that went to the moon.

We went inside this space room, it was dark. We sat down so that the lady Would tell us information about space. After that we had a quiz. When the quiz was done we watched a movie. It was so long i nearly fell asleep.

I learned That You can see jupiter, and saturn at night time. The stars also make images of different things, like maui's hook. All the nights onward I look up and try to see planets.

Creative Writng

Walt: create a piece of writing using my sense Walt: to create a strong plan before I begin my writing. 
Hi My name is kruz it’s the weekend tomorrow. Me and Leonidas are going to camp in the forest for the weekend for fun. We Pack our stuff that we needed, ‘Don't forget the tent’’ I say to Leonidas. So he rushes to get the tent.

I think It's time to go now. So we walk to the nearest forest. 4 minutes later we arrive at the forest. We lay our stuff down and set our tent up. We set the tent up and put all our stuff in it. ‘‘Its getting dark’’ I say. Leonidas agrees. We get in our sleeping bags and rest till the next day.

In the middle of the night i keep hearing creepy sounds. ‘‘Tic Tac’’ I hear but in a creepy voices. I was so scared, and i was the only one awake which is even worse. I tiptoe out side, and flash my flashlight. I see nobody but only hear somebody, It's so weird so i go deeper in the forest. It suddenly gets silent…

I have shivers down my spine, butterflies in my stomach and all sorts of feelings. It gets dark and i see 2 lights. ‘Eyes?’ I think to myself. ‘‘RAAAAA!!’’ Shouted Leonidas. I nearly pooped myself. I nearly died, But he got me good.

I couldn't believe it, He set this up all by himself. At least it wasnt real like a horror movie, It could've ended up worst. After that heart attack we went hunting for food, and we had a good time.

Can He Save Him

WALT: write a narrative that is descriptive (paints a picture in the reader's mind)

Once upon a time there was a man named Jack. He works for 12 hours every single day.  He loved this superhero called Spiderman. He didn't know spiderman was bad but he was.

One day at work Jack was minding his own business when Spiderman came wandering in. Jack was so shocked he didn't know Spiderman was real. But little did he know spiderman was bad.

Iron man was looking at them from on top of a building. Iron man saw no good in Spiderman and was worried for Jack. Spider Man was threatening to push Jack off the sky tower. Jack couldn't believe what he saw. He was so scared that he cried out “HELP ME!”

Suddenly Jack just didn't care anymore, he couldn't take it any longer. Spiderman gave Jack a mighty push out the window. Jack was falling down so fast. Iron man came to pick him up. He was going too fast for Iron man to catch him. Iron man had to use all his speed to catch jack.

Jack was going to hit the ground. Iron man just caught him in time. Luckily for Jack he was saved by Iron man just before he was going to hit the ground. Jack was so pleased, he couldn't thank iron man enough.

Spiderman got scared and ran off to his house. Iron man got some food to eat with Jack. The day ended of well with laughing and smiling. Jack and spider man lived happily ever after the end.
