Mitchell Holiday Blogging #14

Today I woke up in this big batch. I walked out of my room and went to the lounge and the sliding doors were open. It was a really nice view of Hahei Beach. We all got changed and cleaned up. We got changed into our togs and put sun screen on and went for a walk. Before that our dad cooked breakfast.  It was toast and eggs.  Anyways we walked up the road and there was the pathway to go to the beach. We saw heaps of signs saying how long it would take us to get there. We were walking to Gem Bay. It only took 3 minutes. The water was very clear. Then we took the walk to Cathedral Cove. It took 45 minutes. We were so tired. When we got there we got on our surfboards and started swimming. There were heaps of big waves. We were building towers with the rocks too. Then we walked back we were tired. When we came back to the batch we showered and played with the Monopoly and Playing cards and we also took a rest because we were tired.

Mitchell Holiday Post 4 Writing

Once there was a Family called the Ogino Family. They lived in Yamanashi in Japan. They were moving to a small town in Kyoto near Tokyo. In the Ogino family was a dad named Luki, the mum Reibun and the daughter Chihiro. They were driving to their new house and was nearly there but Chihiro’s dad took a wrong turn and went into an abandoned theme park. They stopped outside and walked in. Chihiro’s dad could smell some food and walk towards the smell. They stepped on some rocks to get to the other side of the river.

They followed him and kept on following him until they were there. It was a restaurant and all the food was just left out on the desk. So Chihiro’s Parents decided to pay them later when they came back. Chihiro's Parents were eating and gobbling up all of the food hungrily but Chihiro did not want to eat any food. “It’s so crispy and tender” Chihiro’s Mum said. “I don’t wanna eat anything” Chihiro Said. She went to go explore the town but suddenly this teenage boy Haku told her to leave straight away.

Haku heard her crying so he walked to her and tried to help her to see what was wrong.

Mitchell Holiday Post #3

Today is Tuesday the 19th and the holidays just started. When I woke up I went to the lounge. My sister was on the Ipad and my other sister was sleeping in her room and the other sister went to go shopping with my mum. I sat down on the couch to go watch TV. When they came back from shopping we went to the kitchen. I helped make Breakfast at home. We all sat down when it was ready and then we ate. After breakfast we all brushed our teeth and went in the lounge. We all watched TV and played on the computer and the Ipad. 1 hour later we got changed and got ready to go to my sisters Rugby training at the reserve. While she was training we went to Mc Donalds to go buy some Frozen cokes because it was so sunny and hot. Then we went to the bakery to go by some pies for us to eat. Then we went back to the reserve for her training. When my sisters training finished we went back home. It was the Afternoon and It was getting boring so we decided to go to the park across the road. I helped my sisters cross the road. We stayed at the park for 2 hours and we were playing tag. It was so fun. Then at 6:00 pm we came back home we showered .

Thanks for Reading my holiday blog posts. I will keep posting up more of what I did in the holidays every day so you guys can see.

Mitchell Blues VS Sharks Game Holiday Post #1

Guess What ? Tonight I just came back from the Blue VS Sharks Game at Eden Park. 

At 7:00 me and my family all jumped in the car with all our food and drinks and headed off to Eden Park. When we go there we parked on the side of the road and walked down the hill. When we walked into the gates there were thousands of people walking and sitting down on chairs getting ready for the game. We walked in and the security team scanned our tickets. The game started at 7:35 so we were pretty early. When we went to go sit down we went and sat next to the Year 5 & 6 Mixed and Girls team. Everyone was there with Miss Va'afusuaga and Mr Moran. We sat down for a few minutes holding up flags and balloons and then we heard most people cheering and coming in was the Sharks. Then the Blues came walking in. Everyone started cheering and fire flames started coming out of small black holes. Then they were getting on the field. Then the ref whistled out and then the game started. It was a very good game. Blues won against sharks from 23/18. Thanks for reading.

Mitchell WK 2 Problem Solving

Mitchell FiaFia Recount

Last week on Thursday the 7th of April was FiaFia Night. All of the groups have been practicing for weeks and weeks and it was time to perform. At 7:00 pm I came to school. I saw heaps of people selling delicious yummy food.

I first went to the classroom that my group was at. So I ran to Room 15 with my family to put my costumes on. I was in the Fijian Group. We we were going to perform a traditional meke (dance) taught by my aunty. When I came In with my sisters and family I took off my t-shirt and put on a brown grasskirt.

 Then I put on a green thing made out of leaves around my feet and wrist's. I took off my jacket and shoes and my uncle put some oil on me. Then I put some black paint on my face. All the girls also put some black paint and green leis around their hands and wrist too.

But the girls were wearing a tapa cloth around them instead of grass skirts. Once everyone was ready Mr Burt called out on the speaker for everyone to go through the library and sit down in their lines. Once everyone sat down FiaFia 2016 started.

Mr Burt and the prefects came on stage and introduced our FiaFia to the parents. Then It was time for Kapa Haka. Kapa Haka was really good. We were 12th to perform. I was very nervous. Then It was time for us to perform.

We went to the back of the stage and we got our black sticks. Then we went on stage. Everyone was cheering for us. I was standing were I was supposed to be and stayed there until the music played. They music played then played again. I thought the song was going to not play and just stop.

Anyways It played again then we started again. Then everyone in my group started dancing. It was so fun. I just wish we could do it again. It was about 3 minutes. Everyone was in time. It was the best FiaFia.

Mitchell Duffy Theater Blog Post

On Tuesday the 9th of February I walked into my very new class I just started a week ago and just got told that we were going to go watch a Duffy Theater in the Hall. That was my first time having a Duffy Theater this year. I was very excited. I put my chair on my bag and headed off with the class. We walked to the hall to see what was happening. There was a Medium sized wall in front of the stage and glued on was heaps of papers and pictures. Everyone sat down quietly. All the children from Year 1- 8 got to watch this show but in different times. We listened to these people called Tevita, Simon, and Talia. The show was named Duffys Time Travel Mission. All of the props and costumes they used were Awesome!.

Year 5 & 6 Camp Review

The blog that I reviewed was Samoa's. Here is the link to her blog Samoa Blog Retell. On her first slide she talked about the Year 5 kids coming to camp for the first time. She also talked about Parents and Teachers who volunteered to cook and make breakfast,lunch and dinner for all the campers.

On her second slide she talked about what camp groups there were at camp. All the camp groups had to start with the word Kind under our topic Make Kindness go Viral. She told the audience the names and the meanings on the group. She also told us who were the leaders of the group and the teacher.

Her third slide was about her group the Kindonators. She talked about her being leaders with Ajani and their teachers Mr Somerville and Miss West. She said that her group was awesome and they picked the Song wake me up before you go. They copied some dance moves off Just Dance.

The 4th slide she talked about the cool Camp Activities everyone did. She talked about the Activity Killing Fields or in Nicer words Top town. In her paragrapgh she said that they had to fight with water balloons in a square and if they touched the ground the would be out of the game.

The 5th slide was about everyone's amazing trip to Papakura Pools. She said that their was an Indoor and Outdoor pool and said that their was a Warm and Cold Pool. She said that the inside pool had a button and when you press the button it would make very big Waves.

Slide 6 was about our Camp Concert. In her paragraph she said that all of the camp groups was very cool and had very cool songs to play and very cool dance moves. She also said who came 1st , 2nd and 3rd in our whole camp groups.

Her last slide was a big thank you to everyone who helped out to all of the teachers who volunteered to help out. Thank you for reading my review.,

Mitchell Compare and Contrast - (Extension)

Mitchell Extension Group MTV

Kyron group MTV from Team 4 Pes on Vimeo.
Reflection - My group for Extension had to create a MTV to show others about our terms topic Make Kindness go viral. My Friends Kyron, Me, Daisy, Ana and Nasibah created this movie to show what Kindness is doing around our school. We used a camera and filmed around our school with my friends what we wrote down on our storyboard. We did a compare and contrast in this movie for people to see what to do and not what to do. In this movie we will also show you what Pt Englanders do to Learn, Create and Share. What could've been better is one of the camera shots in this film. It was kind of moving really bad. What I liked about the film is everyone participated and helped to create this movie and everyone in this film was included. I did most editing on I Movie and everyone else filmed and acted out. Thanks for watching.

WALT: write an interesting recount. Our task was to create our own presentation about camp. We had to write a recount which explains what we did at camp. We could change the fonts, colours, backrounds and add pictures taken from camp to add on the presentation. We would like you to experience Year 5 & 6 camp and feel like you were there with us. - Mitchell.
