The Spirit of Polynesia Show



My favourite part of the Spirit of Polynesia Show was when I volunteered to do the Poi Dance. I felt very nervous when I got up because I was going to dance in front of the whole school, but when I started to do it I wasn't nervous any more, I was happy. A poi dance is when you swing the poi around in circles in time. When I looked at my friends they were smiling and that is what made me smile.

THE KINDY KIDS SPECIAL TIME VISITING ROOM 4






The Kindy Kids Special Time Visiting Room 4

On Tuesday, 22 June, after morning tea Alecia and I looked out the door and saw the Kindy Kids. When the Kindy Kids came out of the hall we were super excited. Kindy Kids were visiting us to choose a Kids At Home Book, part of the Duffy Programme. When they arrived in Room 4 Mrs Pole took the Kindy Kids around the circle to a partner. After that Mrs Pole read a book to the Kindy Kids. Later on the Kindy Kids chose a book to have. When they’d finished choosing a book we read a special book to them. We read in small groups. After our special teacher Mrs Pole came and took a picture of Annalise and I reading a book to Angelyn, that was Annalise’s little sister. Meanwhile Mrs Pole called us to the mat so we could give out the yellow and green book bags and the activity books that had the cover of Duffy. Soon Mrs Pole told us to sing our song that we performed at our assembly. Rosrine was singing in the front and I was at the back singing. When we started singing the song I was so nervous, that’s like Alecia. When we were singing I was about to cry. Lucky last Sammy, a little kindy boy, said, “ Thank you for having us and we will come back.” Room 4 felt very happy for the Kindy Kids getting their new special book bag and Duffy activity book. We hope they come back and visit us.

After that Seuati said Come here my Children. After that we said What is it father?. He said just Come here and listen and sit down. And he said come here my oldest child and take this stick and break it. Now take 2 sticks and break them. Now take 3 sticks and break them. Now take this bundle of sticks and break them. He took them to all of us and we all tried to break them and the sticks WOULD NOT BREAK. After that Alecia said that was a task and then we did the unity sign.

A Super Fancy Assembly

Last Friday after morning tea I rushed to line because I was super excited for the super assembly. When we arrived at the hall Mrs Pole told us to sit down so we did that right away. Next Mrs Pole told Joshua to go to the office so Joshua could tell Mrs Bell to ring the bell. Then the bell rang really loudly!
I was frightened then the whole school came to the hall. I was really nervous. Later on Kalolaine said something to the whole school then Annalise, Vaine and Joanna came up and said their prayers.It was about their lovely, sweet school and their country. I felt like crying because of their lovely prayers.
After that we sang a song called Come Gather and Praise. I was singing with a boy called Joshua. Once we stood up I was really nervous but I was trying to sing really loudly but I couldn't because I was scared but once group 2 came around us I was not nervous at all because group 2 came around. When we'd finished the song I felt super happy! After that we played our recorders. We only played Leapin' About because that was the only song we knew so we had to play it. We had a folder so we could play the notes because if we didn't have a folder we might play anything.
Later on we did the unity signs. The people who did the unity signs were Victoria, Joshua, Paul, Kanesini, and Justin-Tyler.
After we did a play about The Father and His Quarrelling Children It was about these kids who always quarrelled all the time.
Lucky last we were holding hands and we said," TOGETHER WE ARE STRONG!"
Then Kalolaine said," Mr Coakley can you please come and give out the virtue certificates please?" Later on Mrs Pole came and gave the Caught Being Goods out. After that we went back to our classes.
My favourite highlight was when I was singing because my mum took a photo of me.I was really proud of myself and Joshua because we were singing really, really, really proudly.

took me to my brother's Kindy and my dad was there with my sister.We picked up my dad
and sister to go to the doctor to check my arm.I had an x-ray and after the x-ray they
told me that I fractured two bones inside my arm. After that I had to wrap my arm up, After I got something that held my arm in place - a sling. I walked home with my sister and dad and when I got home I went for nap. I missed my mum so much. After a long time mum came home and I was happy to see mum and I ate again and I felt great.
