Te Puna News

WOW! We have some published poets in Rūma Tahi!

If you see this around pick it up and have a flick through. The awesome cover story was written by senior James Rowe! (Selected to be published in the January edition of Toitoi - a journal for young writers)








































Turn the page and receive a nice surprise! 4 of our pet poems made it into The Holiday Issue of Te Puna News. 









































Weeeeeee! Send that out far and wide to the whanau. 
Tino pai Tyler, Benjamin, Simeon and Robert!

Hundertwasser

I think Rūma Tahi may have a couple of life long Hundertwasser enthusiasts!
We had lots of fun looking at wiggly lines, funny houses, bright colours and mistakes aren't mistakes! It's all part of the art. 

Hundertwasser was an Austrian born artist that spent some of his time living up north in NZ! He was the mastermind behind the famous Kawakawa toilets.

Athletics tomorrow!

Training with Room 5


My hope is that we have an awesome day and everyone gives the events their best shot!
Miss Andrews

My goal is to do my best and give it a go. But ….. I still want to win!
Lachlan

My goal is to keep my head straight doing sprints at athletics. My second goal is to not hit any hurdles down.  My last goal is to have fun!
Josh

I hope I get in the top three for both of the sprints and for rob the nest I want my team to get the most bean bags!
Kiarn

My goal is to give it a go. Also, don’t switch lanes in the sprinting because I always switch lanes when I am going fast.
Benjamin

My goal is to win the sprints so I can get in the finals. In the finals I will just do my best. In the high jump I think I will win because I have been practising at home.
Louie

My goal is to beat Neitana and get in the finals in the sprints. My other goal is to get at least six balls in rob the nest.
Logan

My goal for athletics is to keep my eyes on the finish line. I really want to get into the finals but if I don’t it’s going to be fine. I will still be proud of myself.
Olivia

For athletics my goal is try not to be too competitive, but if I do it is okay because it is just a game.
Anahera

I really hope I can get in the finals, but I am just going to give it a go. I am not going to rush and think I am the best at running. On the hurdles, I am going to try my best and not knock any cones over.
Leah

I think the teacher’s trained my great. Now I actually think I can win in either sock put, tennis ball throw or rob the nest. I hope I win. But the real question is… will I?
Ashlee

My goal is to come in the finals in the sprints because I will be happy. If I do the sock put, I will be excited because I enjoy the sock put. But I love the hurdles because they are fun and I enjoy them and I am good at them them.
Toby

My goal is to jump over the high jump and get the right leg over the rope. I hope that I get first in the sprints.
Simeon



My goal is to come third in the sprints. I’d really like to beat Anahera and Tyler.
Rebecca-Marley

My goal is be 1st or not.. Because it doesn't matter. In the tennis ball throw and the sprints too, but I hope I beat Anahera and Tyler and Simeon. I need to concentrate on the sprints.
Chevy

My goal is to come first in the athletics. Then I get $20.
Camryn

My goal is to jump the highest high jump ever. Also, get into the finals. My favourite athletics is hurdles because it is fun and I love to jump. Will I win? No as a matter of fact I don’t think will win. But it is fun.
Robert

My goal is to win the sprints, but I don’t care if I don’t win the sprints. My second goal is to jump more further than my practise jump at the standing jump. I am so excited for athletics.
Tyler

My goal is I hope I get first place in the sprints. But if i get last place it will be okay, it was fun. I hope I get 2nd place in the hurdles it is going to be fun tomorrow! The best day, come to athletics you will have fun! I hope I get more balls in rob the nest because I only got 4.
Aaria

My goal is to win the tennis ball throw. Because me and my little sister practise. If my little sister wins the sprints competition I will be proud if her and my mum and dad will be proud. If I do the sprint and come last it will be okay.
Luke

Knocked over? No worries! Keep on going.

My goal is to try my best on sprints, I don’t care if I win or lose. I just have to give it a go and have fun. I want to not knock down the hurdles, but if I do I keep on going. The scissor jump will be quite high, I will just try jump as high as I can.
Makaea

My goal is to get the furthest jump on the high jump. I want to win but I don’t know if I will… Will I?

Free Writng

One of the things Rm 1 decided we would like to do more of before the end of the year, was write more and do more for the blog.

An activity we can do during reading time some days is head on and read our work on the blog or create new work for it.
Prepare for some more posts!



Banging, shooting, booming,
Wars happening in the sun.
Parachuting, bow and arrowing, gliding,
Just fighting like an army.
Killing, dungeoning, falling,
falling in the water.
Ship wars

Pop pop popcorn
It's starting, SHHHH!
Fading to black, 
It's coming!
What movie is it??

Kiarn

Part 1 
Once upon a time there were two boys called Makaea and Lachlan. 
It was a sunny day when Te Puna School at Room One there was a boom! Anahera, Makaea and Lachlan were gone.....
Lachlan, Makaea and Anahera were at Hogwarts! They saw... Professor Snape, he said "Go back to Gryffindor now please!" so they ran. They saw Harry Potter!! 
To be continued....
Lachlan




Part 1 
Once upon a time there was just a normal teacher. Her name was Miss Andrews, her class was Room 1. One day she got really stressed. In the night when she was asleep she turned into a super hero! Her super hero name was Power Girl. In the morning she didn't know she was a superhero until someone knocked on the door, she opened the door the mans name was Towersey Dumbledore! To be continued...

This is the man who rode the motorbike.

These are the ramps that were used by the motorbike the man rode.

This is the camper that carried the ramps that were used by the motorbike the man rode.

This is the lego that made the camper that carried the ramps that were used by the motorbike the man rode.

This is the boy who played with the lego that made the camper that carried the ramps that were used by the motorbike the man rode.

Playing with poems


Along the lines of The House That Jack Built, we read The Nut that Atu Planted


The tipa reading ropu came up with our own version

This is the pipi
that sat in the sand.

This is the ika
that ate the pipi
that sat in the sand.

This is the seal
that scared the the ika
that ate the pipi
that sat in the sand.

This is the rubbish
that annoyed the seal
that scared the the ika
that ate the pipi
that sat in the sand.

This is the silly killy
that dropped the rubbish
that annoyed the seal
that scared the the ika
that ate the pipi
that sat in the sand.

This is the life guard
that growled the silly killy
that dropped the rubbish
that annoyed the seal
that scared the the ika
that ate the pipi
that sat in the sand.



And Makaea made this one!

This is the worm
that was wriggling around.

This is bird
that was swooping around
that ate the worm
that was wriggling around.

This is the cat
that scared the bird
that was swooping around
that ate the worm
that was wriggling around.

This is the dog
that chased the cat
that scared the bird
that was swooping around
that ate the worm
that was wriggling around.

This is the horse
that kicked the dog
that chased the cat
that scared the bird
that was swooping around
that ate the worm
that was wriggling around.

This is the dinosaur
that stomped on the horse
that kicked the dog
that chased the cat
that scared the bird
that was swooping around
that ate the worm
that was wriggling around.

This is the dragon
that burnt the dinosaur
that stomped on the horse
that kicked the dog
that chased the cat
that scared the bird
that was swooping around
that ate the worm
that was wriggling around.


Different style but amazing poem from Toby -

Boat launching, waves crashing,

Sea spray in my face  
Fish jumping, reel screaming.
I love the chase.
Oh here he comes!
He's a big one, no longer in the ocean.
Now in my chilly bin the biggest fish of the day
I hope i win.

Treasure treasure art!
For my treasure art I used purple and blues for the background.
I used yellow for the inside. I used water colours.
