Catching The Bus In Samoa

 Today my group read"Catching The Bus In Samoa", My group had to read and say some things that are different in a bus in Samoa and in New Zealand. When we read a paragraph our teacher would stop us and tell us to tell her some differences in the story,Example-In Samoan their are no doors in Samoan buses but in New Zealand we have doors. Example 2-In Samoa they have plastic clear windows and in New Zealand we have glass windows. In Samoa if the bus driver knows you he'll drop you off at your house gate.

Fun learning time

I learned how to read the time and what months come first, second, third and so forth...

The time was difficult because I was still learning about what the hour and minute hand was.

I feel happy that I can read the time on a clock.

Duffy Show

We had a show. One of my favourite shows at school this year, we had a Duffy show. The show was the best show they've done at Ruapotaka School. The best part was when they added some science experiments into their show. When they added all of the ingredients it just errupted from the bottom and came out like lava but it was green.

The story was all about global warming. The characters were Global Girl, Super Duffy and Lord Zendaya. In the story a cyclone happened and it was coming straight towards global girl and Duffy. Then global girl had a idea and said to blow the cyclone away. So they blew it away by using there arms to make a wiggly shape. Then after that the cyclone left to another place. Then global girl flew away with Duffy.

After that they landed in Tuvalu.They went to Tuvalu to help the sea Moana. The sea was rough and scared because Antarctica was melting into the sea. The best way global girl and Duffy could was by calming her down. The sea was scared that Tuvalu would sink because the water is getting higher and higher.Then after that Moana just got calmer and calmer.Then they flew off to Australia.

Then they landed in Aussie. In Aussie there were big bush fires heading their way. They heard a koala shouting for help. The koala was a talking koala. When Duffy went to save the koala with global girl he got scared because the koala started talking.

New Year At School

Malo' e 'lelei

My name is Leaaepeni I am a year 6 student in room 10.I'm full Tongan and and I like art and I'm still getting the hang of drawing things around me.

 My teachers name is Miss Misela and I had her last year but then I got moved. I am 10 years old and I like writing and spelling and I am still trying to get better at maths.

I really enjoy going to the beach with my family and mostly on Fridays. Because on Fridays that's when we can stay for longer because it's the weekends. The beach we go to is Mission Bay, and at Mission Bay I also have to swim with my little brother at the fountain. The fountain is big and round but it's just not deep. At school I also enjoy playing with my friends at the school park, I like playing sport and my favourite sport is softball. I always want to be in my friends team and my friends name is Dominic.
