My Recommendation

I would recommend watching this movie called Happiness Infection by Rm 6 at Glen Innes School because it was very funny and it made me laugh so loud. The song was really funny and cool. This was a really fantastic movie. It was a very brilliant name for a movie about the 3 tongan happy clowns with lots of props like wigs,toto’s. Oh and I forgot to say when he said lele ulu boko it was a good laugh. A good movie, keep up the good work.


My Cycling Experience/Cycling safety

Yesterday morning two instructors came to our school. Their names were Kate and Kyla and they are working for Auckland Transport. They came to teach us how to ride bikes safely. The first thing we did was they took us outside to grab a helmet and wear it firmly on our heads. We had to stand from the shortest to tallest and they called the shortest people to go get their bikes. We did an air test, brake test, control and chain test, drop test, quick and release test.

After that Kyla said all the kids who have not ridden a bike or haven’t ridden a bike in a long time or were not confident need to go with Kate and when they’re confident they can come back to us.

After that Kyla told us to write in a square around the court for like 2 minutes. Then when we were riding Kyla added cones so we could weave through them and some cones that we can drive through. Then we started to play games.

Afterwards we started to play a game. We had to ride in a square but the square would shrink. I lost because I was outside the square. Then we played a game that the slowest people ride so they could win.

It was so fun that we had free bike skill lessons at school. I hope we can do it again soon and thanks to Auckland Transport for sending Kate and Kyla so we can have bike skills and learn how to ride safely.




Last week on Saturday my family and I went to the last Matariki  celebration in Glen Innes. When we went there, we saw our cousins and we asked them if they wanted to walk with us and they said ‘yes.’ Then we were walking through a light trail and there was a floating shark. It was hanging on a tree but it was fake. There were a lot of lights everywhere. It was so cool there.

After that it was so dark all around and then all of a sudden there were lights. The light trail was so colourful because there were blue, red, white, purple and yellow ones, and there was a big sign that said Matariki. We stopped  for a while and looked around. There was a count down for the fireworks. The fireworks were so loud and there was one firework that sounded like a woman screaming.

I enjoyed the Matariki celebrations and then when we came back to school, we learned even more about this special Maori New Year.

Characterisation of Storm Boy

I am young and even though I don’t go to school, I am smart. I am happy to be alone in nature. I love being in big, loud, windy, wet storms. I’ve learnt everything I know from Fingerbone Bill, who lives in the Coorong near where my dad and I live. I love animals and they are my friends…………………………. Storm Boy.
