He was crossing the road and cars were coming and he didn’t run he just went side to side and he nearly got crushed from the cars. When he walked he went to a tree and got a suitcase and went and sit down on a chair and ate his donut. When he bit the donut a pigeon came and stood next to him and looked at the donut. The secret agent picked off a little and then threw it to the ground so the the pigeon could go away but the pigeon want the whole donut. So the pigeon went closer to Walter to get the whole donut. But Walter didn’t give it to the pigeon because he was hunger as well so the pigeon went inside Walter’s suitcase and pressed all of the buttons and did not know that he was shooting it at people and chasing them. When he pressed a button this lid opened and a red button showed and the pigeon was pressing it but it didn’t work then he sawed the screen of the suitcase Walter was holding the donut on his hand and going to drop it in the burning car. When the pigeon put the gun and the bomb away and went down and open the suitcase lid and fly and stand on the edge of the suitcase and saw Walter coming closer and closer he went back inside the suitcase and press the bomb to shoot to Walter and tell Walter to move back Walter said”do you want the donut.” Walter throw it to the sky and the pigeon standard there and looked up top and Walter move him away from the suitcase and standard up touch his shoulder while the donut came down and land on the red button.

The pigeon was scared and looked at Walter and Walter open the suitcase and the donut flyed up the air and went down and the pigeon followed the donut to the ground and Walter shoot the bomb to the rocket and then came back down and looked at the pigeon eating the donut and trying to move the donut back. Walter put on his glasses and went away then the part of the rocket came down and land on the pigeon and the pigeon was dead.

Imagination Story

I was asleep when my Dad came and yelled “Come on Salote, come and help me do the garden.” I stood up and went outside with my Dad then I heard my Dad shouted “Dig me a big hole so I can put 13 flowers there”. So I did what my Dad told me to do, I dug a hole and it got bigger and bigger but I fell into the hole.

When I landed the ground felt soft like carpet and I saw lots of Jelly wallpaper and it was so sunny. On the wall it said ”this is Jelly land”. I saw someone's shadow coming near me, I was so scared I was going to run away but I saw nothing just wallpaper. 

The shadow came closer and closer and said “Hello, I am Jimmy, welcome to Jelly Land” The place was small and lovely and all the people there seemed kind. I looked at him, he was tiny and had two eyes, small ears and he had small arms and legs. He handed me a small box and said “Hello I want you to take this to your land and hide it because if it is lost or broken this Jelly land will be destroyed by evil people, so keep it safe”. So I said “Okay I will keep it safe and I will hide it”. He opened the box and he said “look at this.” I looked inside, it was beautiful. A brown ball and snow coming down with a little word that says happy was in the box. 

“By the way how do you go out from this place?” I asked. Jimmy said “Wait, I will go and open the door for you okay”. Jimmy ran to the door and pressed something that said open and close. He pressed it and the door opened. I run to it and came back to the back yard. I opened my hand and I was still holding the little box so I ran and hid it under my pillow then came back and did the digging again.

Reflection Term 2

My favourite thing this term was when we did the Maori story. I liked drawing the pictures because we had to make it up and we were not allowed to copy the same photos but it was nice because we all did our best.

My favourite thing this term was when we did Orienteering it is a thinking sport, we do it every Wednesday. Sometimes we go in partners or we go by ourselves.

I really enjoyed basketball because we had groups and we shoot and challenge the other teams and the team. If you lose you have to do 10 push ups but only one group can win.

Orienteering Week 1

On Wednesday the 30th May Mr McGivern and Irene came to room 3 to talk to the class about Orienteering. He talked to the class and showed the class some of the equipment that is used in Orienteering. Mr McGivern explained to the class how to have a small game of Orienteering inside room three. Small pieces of paper, called controls, were put around the room and the
room 3 students had to find them using a map on the whiteboard to help them, then write down the letter that was on the paper. When all the letters had been collected the class had to work out the mystery message. 

Room 3 went to the field with Mr McGivern and Irene. Mr McGivern drew a map for room 3 then room three went off to find the mystery message. The controls was everywhere, it was easy to find it. The controls was around the field, the students looked on their map it will say 1 (A) then it said next to a tree or building. If they went past the controls they were not allowed to go back because if they did the person that went back will be out so if you go past it go around then come back to it.  

When they finished it the word was backwards it said 'HAVE A NICE DAY'.

Howick Historical Village

At Howick Historical Village my favorite part was when we went and did the Scavenger Hunt. We had to go with a big person because we might get lost. Me and my group went with Andrew.

We went to a house that had a room but it was locked but the room inside was nice and there was a doll on a baby bed. We then went to the next house, when I went inside I got scared because there was a girl standing but it was fake. We saw lollies but we were not allowed to take the lollies. We went and climbed the stairs and when we got there we saw toys. We played with the toys.

The next house had an iron. The iron had to be picked up and you take something from the back of the iron and put it next to the fire and then put it back to the iron it was fun. We then went to the next house, it was a tent. Andrew told us that the parents slept on the bed and the kids slept on the bottom on the grass. So at the tent we found toothpaste and a toy car, it was fun.

When the bell rang we had to go back to the house that we came from, we went the same time as Miss G and her group. The lady asked Miss G “How many have you found”. Miss G replied “We found 6 things”. Then the lady asked us how many we found “We found 8 Modern things” Yes, we won the scavenger hunt.

Tom and the Dragon

“Can I go to the Pier?” asked Tom. “Certainly, just remember you are not allowed to go to the dragons cave because he will eat you” replied his Mother. “Okay, I won’t go to the Dragons cave” said Tom and off he went down to the Pier.

When Tom got to the Pier he saw the Dragon with his eyes filled with tears. “AHH!! Its the boy who destroys us!” he screamed. Tom just stood there and stared.

Soon the two were playing together and after that the Mum’s were saying nervous hellos to eachother.
