Solution On Saturn

1. Saturn is a planet that has no solid ground because it’s made of gas. It is covered with clouds so you can’t see what it really looks like on the inside and it does not have any water at all. Saturn is the sixth planet from the sun and the second largest planet within the solar system. Saturn is classified as a giant along with Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune. Together, these four planets are called Gas Giant.

2.My first solution is that I would do is go on Titan, One of Saturn’s Moon. It has oil to generate electricity too. There is no electricity but the electricity is to make oil not to heat stuff up.

3. My second solution is that I would use a device. I will use it to make land on Titan with houses and everything that earth has. It will also have oxygen.

4.My last solution is that a person will be selling oxygen spray so you can live on it forever it will last your whole life.

5. My favourite solution is the the last one because there is a man selling stuff in a suit. I would really be happy I that would happen. That would make life easier, not only for my life but everybodys.

Ice-Cream Comet

Have you ever tried an Ice-Cream Comet ? Rm 13 has tried an Ice - Cream comet and it was delicious .

The Ingredients are Ice-Cream cones, Some Chocolate Ice- Cream, and Hundreds and Thousands with crunched up biscuits to go with the hundreds and thousands.

Rm 13 waited patiently for a Ice-Cream Comet as Miss King had a spoon in her hand and called a group and then another group to come up at a time. When our group was picked Lesieli put a spoon of hundreds and thousands onto our hands then Miss king put Ice-Cream on top of it. It was FREEZING!!!!!!!!!

We had to roll it into a ball.After we finished Whaea Janeille put the cone on top of the Ice-Cream and we flipped over the Cone and it could now be eaten it had different texture on my tongue. My hands were sticky and dripped through my fingers. My stomach was growling fiercely!!!!

Immersion Assembly

From Immersion Assembly Term 4 2011
I was sitting on the floor in the school hall listening Mr. Burt talk. He introduced the topic to us and I was excited when he said the and it was “ Outta this world “.

Teachers were in Ballerina Tutu’s they had movies for us to enjoy and watch. Team one’s clothes were awsome. My best dressed Team Four.

My favourite Item was Team Five’s version of Star Wars because it looked really funny.

The last item was performed by Team Five The Star Wars movie was like a puppet show except there were cardboard around them and only they have to move only blink and talk at the right.

Sonny Bill Williams

Dangerously Sonny Bill Williams charging across the field, he made a historic try . Stepping & tackling, he was cheered to boost past the oppositions players and score. He scored 15 tries for the team against France.

The Thinking Hats

I enjoyed AFL because I can catch & learn new skills & Badminton

I didn’t enjoy Cross-Crountry because I get tired & get sore Rib’s.

I learnt some new skills at AFL like a hand pass & Drop punt.

Great that we have Netbooks & that it is almost the end the term.

Maths Whizz Because it is hard with the time tables.

I want to improve on listening to the teacher.

Warriors In The GRAND FINAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The New Zealand Warriors have won there match’s in the Preliminarily and the Qualifying Finals so they are now in the GRAND FINAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The way that they made it into the GRAND FINAL was that they believed in there team & played well as a team. Super speed stepping & tackling it still was not enough to win.

Que bueno son los alfajorcitos. Muy delicioso.Wow! The alfajorcitos are great. So delicious.
Room 13 made Alfajorcitos on Thursday for a speical treat.

This treat is from Argentina so it would be an Argentinian treat. It was so sticky as well as crunchy. In Argentina so many kids eat would eat lots of Alfajorcitos. Alfajorcitos can be made into lots of layers and layers so it can’t even fit in anyone’s mouth.

Miss King brought some biscuits and jar of Dulce De Leche to school.
Our steps to make them was to get the Dulce de leche from people who have it, spread the Dulce de lecheon biscuits. We squashed the two biscuits together that we grabbed from the biscuit carton, then rolled ithem in the coconut.

Mmmm the Alfajocitos are nice they are my favourite Argentinian treats. I wanted more, but we could only have one. That smell of the Dulce de leche was so great.

Aussie Rules

Wow Guess what? Room 13 went to Aussie rules.

Our Instructors names were Allysa & Megan, after lunch on Thursdays we meet them on the court.

Aucklands weather can be unpredictable. Thursday was windy, then rainy, then fine. The weather keeps on changing CRAZY!!!!! Will it ever stop?

Our Warm up we did is called Jumper Bumper the aim of the game is to bump your partner over while hopping.

Allysa taught us a new skill called a drop punt, you have the ball laces away from your face every time. The other skill is called a hand pass, you have got the ball straight on a hand and the other hand to hit the ball.

It was time for the game called Kick Baseball. The field was in a diamond shape. Your supposed to kick the ball and then use a different ball to get run round the bases. You have to bounce the ball while you're running to the cones & you can’t stop. I only made it to 1 cone because I can’t kick properly.

When the game ended we put the AFL balls away, and then Allysa asked us what the skills we learnt for Aussie rules. It was fun.

The Jandel and Buzzybee

Kiaora & welcome to NZ a very unique & special island. There are reasons for this, One is our multicultural population & the other, our isolated geographic location. NZ is filled with treasured kiwiana that we hope to share with you.

The term tiki refers to a carved human figure and was and is part of the Maori and other Pasifka peopless culture. If you look at the tiki you will see greenstone with red, grey and dark blue. The tiki is pre-European.

The jandel that has a strap between the big and second toe. The name is called jandel, The jandel is rubber with a trade mark in NZ 1940 of being easy to put on and sometimes slipped off while you walk with them. These days you get different pairs and sizes!!

Making Pt England Uniform Work Better

Making uniforms better at Pt England is that the colour it’s too red, we need more colors like Rasta or fire colors. The problem is that it is it has a plain color I want to change the way that Pt England’s uniform is designed.

I chose the colours rasta and fire because it seemed kind of a hot color and cold color mixed together to make it into a hot color.

What makes my new design better than the old one is that it has just red not any fun colors that kids would want to wear like a rasta and a fire color with a super fire look it would seem better on kids who are intersted in Frangeypany and rasta or fire with cold colors

On Thursday Room 13 went to badminton we sat down on the hall floor Donna (Our coach) showed us how to use a racquet and how to hit a shuttle so we wouldn’t make the shuttle drop off our racquets right after we throw the shuttle up in the air.

After Donna showed us we had a go, Me and Mosa were partners I served Mosa he hit the shuttle back to me and then I said “Great hit” we were still hitting the shuttle after we had finished we did something different one of us from each group had to have a cone and shuttle and the partner had to use there racquet trying to hit the shuttle while the other person in the group, had to try and get the shuttle into the cone.

Donna demonstrated how to get the shuttle into the cone, Uili was chosen to help Donna demonstrate. Uili had his racquet in his hand and Donna had her cone and shuttle in her hand Donna threw her shuttle at Uili and he used his racquet to hit the shuttle then Donna went and caught the shuttle with her cone after Donna said “Room 13 go and try it your selves” then we all did Mosa threw the shuttle to me and then I swung my bat and then I said “Mosa get the shuttle” Then Mosa got the shuttle safely in to the cone.

I felt sweety then it was time to swap so I had the cone and shuttle and he had the racquet I said “Mosa are you ready” and he said “Yes” So I served the shuttle Mosa hit it I almost got the shuttle then Mosa told me “You can try better than that, But nice try anyway Francis” Then I said “Mosa are you ready” and this time I got the shuttle in the cone.

Back To The Future

As the wheels screeched, the Delorean pulled out of the driveway. Nervously sitting in the car, Marty said “Hey Doc, we better back up, we don’t have enough road to get to 88?”. Jennifer said nothing, like as if she were a statue. Hugging Marty she was confused. Doc replied, adjusting his goggles “Roads where we’re going we don’t need roads”. Pressing buttons the wheels lifted up and they took off into the future with a blast of fire like a rocket.
