When it is the production I am going to feel excited because I am going to see my family.
I am going to feel brave because I am old enough to go on stage and speak. I have got lines.

Next week me and my class are going to have a production. In the production we are going to be on a 14 metre boat. William and Leah are our top leaders in the production. On the production day I am going to feel proud and nervous. Why I am feeling proud and nervous is because there is going to be hundreds of people watching us.

I am excited for the production and nervous my mum made my shorts last year. My mums going to to be  proud of me. I don't know ‍who is going to be at the production. My line is ‘Have you told them about the rats?!’

I like making big holes and sandcastles too. We have spades in the sandpit and what we like doing is like digging and pyramids. We work together, it is fun in there. We have to clean the sandpit we have brooms and we are lucky to have.

We are so lucky to have a sandpit with spades  and pipes. We can make big holes and put sandcastles in it. It is so fun to having a sandpit. We are lucky to have water that we can make holes and put water in them and we can make rivers and we sometimes get wet! And sandy too! And we have to clean up and it is so hard to get off and it is kind of sore I make pyramid we work so hard and we work together. It is so fun making pyramids and at the end it looks cool as. When I just started I did not know there was a sandpit.

I like playing in the sandpit with my friends and in ruma tahi you get to do cleaning the sandpit. It would be cool if we get some buckets in the Sandpit.
Ruma tahi is lucky enough to have a sandpit. At the start of the year we did not have spades but we did have brooms. We work together.

We are very lucky to have one sandpit with spades to dig holes.

We are very lucky because some schools don`t even have a sandpits. And if we have a sand pit we have to take care of the sand.


I like making power stations, we have to keep it clean if we don’t keep it clean we would not get spades.

In rūma tahi, we clean the sandpit, we have fun in it too. We clean the sandpit with brooms and spades. We create lots of stuff, we dig deep holes We make sand castles too. We use pipes to get the water into the sandpit, we get water out of the tap. We are lucky to have the sandpit.

I am very happy to have a sandpit outside my classroom. What we need to do to respect our sandpit is to clean it but to have fun too. Because what you can do in the sandpit is digging holes building pipes and a lot more.

I Like  making volcanoes and rivers in the sandpit because it is creative. Room one looks after the sandpit by cleaning it up with brooms and spades when i make a volcano i get sand and make a hill and put a hole through the mountain and  make it deep and put water in it and it explodes and the water pours down on to the ground i like making rivers because if you find a lid it floats on the water in the waves that tumble.

But wait there's more!

On Tuesday I snuck out of school earlier than usual to see the Room One basketballers play over at the ASB arena. A lot of skill in that team and heaps of positivity!

Well done, Josh, Louie and Lachlan! and awesome job coach Michelle!

Magical Mauao!

Look what Olivia has been working on at home for the last few weeks! Photographed and written about by Olivia. Amazing, amazing, amazing.

Today I brought a project to school, it was Mount Maunganui. I made Mount Maunganui by getting a big board and placing it on something. Then you paint the board black and when the paint is dry you paint the board blue. When the paint is dry you have to get some fluff and then you make the fluff the same shape as Mount Maunganui. Once you have made the shape of Mount Maunganui you cover the fluff with newspaper and stick the newspaper on. Once the newspaper is dry you paint the whole thing green, once that is dry you do some trees with dark green, once that's dry you have to put rocks around it and then put a trig at the top and then the track. 

Next term you will hopefully be able to see it on display in the whare pukapuka :)

Saturday Sport

Every Monday morning I hear and read some awesome stories about what has gone on over the weekend. A big part of that is Saturday morning sport, I was lucky enough to see our Rippa Rugby lads and hockey crew playing at Blake Park a few weeks ago.

Well done guys. It felt really awesome seeing you all out there giving it your all!
