Our Junior School Mass

Today the juniors had a Mass about Thanksgiving. Father told the junior school a story. Sia did the introduction by her self and said it clearly. The story Father told the juniors was the Ten Lepers. It was the Gospel. The reading came from the Book of St Luke. I put my hand up and answered Father. He pointed at me when I put my hand up. Aaliyah and Vanessa went up and bowed down to Jesus. Aaliyah had something nice to say to Mrs Moodley and while Mrs Moodley was waiting George and Akesa brought up some flowers for her. When the mass finished the juniors went under a tree to have a treat. The treat was ice blocks. The ice block tased like a lollipop. It was so yummy. Before the juniors ate the ice blocks we had to wait for Room 5 for  a long, long time.

A Special Mass

Today,in the morning , the junior school went to our mass. The people who were going to read had to go and sit on the front seats. Sia was the first one to read. Then we were singing and singing. After that Father was reading us a story when we finished singing. After that Father asked us some questions to us. Some of the Juniors  kept saying the same thing as the other people were saying. Only one man came back to Jesus and said thank you. Aaliyah and Vanessa was the last one to read.  Akesa and Goerge had to give the flowers to Mrs Moodley. I think Mrs Moodley was happy. It was fun. I was happy too and tired. I enjoyed Aaliyah and Vanessa's part.

Our Junior School Mass

This morning I went to church with Room 4 and 5, Rooms 1 and 2. We bowed down to pray with Father and all the people. The children from Room 1 went to give the bread and the wine. We all sang songs to Jesus.  Aaliyah and Vanessa did the Reading for Mrs Moodley  who got a surprise and she was sad because she was going to miss us.

A Dragon Who Wants A Friend




Once there lived a nice dragon who wished he had a friend. While he was walking he saw a fat green frog who was trying to catch a fat fly. He walked to the frog “Hi my name is..”
“Help! Help! There’s a fierce dragon who is trying to eat me!” Cried the frog.
“Please don’t leave I just want to have a friend.”
But it was too late. The frog had left him. The dragon was so sad. Next he went to a river. Nearby the river was a big bad bear who was fishing for his lunch. The dragon combed his spiky hair and walked slowly to the bear. He said in a big voice “Hi, my name is..”
“Help me! Help! There’s a big green dragon trying to eat me for his lunch.” The bear ran away screaming “Help! Help!” The dragon cried and cried and cried. The dragon said in a sad voice “No one wants to be my friend but I am not going to give up.”
It was getting dark and cold. The dragon decided to go back home to have a rest.
Then in the morning he will go back and look for a new friend. When the dragon woke up he was still tired. He thought it was the morning but he was wrong. It was still night. The dragon dreamt about something crazy. That’s why he woke up so early in the morning. He heard a tiny voice. He looked down. There he saw a tiny mouse hiding from a huge eagle which was flying on top of the cave.
“Hey can you please scare away the huge eagle? He wants to eat me.” Said the mouse. The dragon thought for a while. Then he thought that this little mouse could be his friend. The dragon quickly blew out flames from his mouth. “Thank you so much! Um what’s your name?”
“My name is Max. I am really shy and I don’t have a friend yet. Maybe you would like to be my friend?”
“I’ll be happy to be your friend.”
So on that very day Max never felt alone again.

Our First Day of Milk

Today 8th November Room 4 had milk which was very sad that Mrs Hoggins had to lift it for us. Our milk tasted like normal milk but it sort of tasted like the Church bread. I said the milk made my skelton really strong as it had made my brain go faster and made me work faster. I also concentrated on my work rather than talk to my neighbor Samasoni and Fiapo. Room 4 had to drink and read because we had to be quiet. I wish that I could have a cup of milk instead of a little bottle. I wanted some more of the milk. By Sia

Today Room 4 had milk. Aaliyah and Vanessa brought them in a box. Then they put them in a fridge so that the milk can be nice and cold. After that when it is nice and cold the monitors put it in the container and gives it to the classes.
When I drank it, it was really cold and nice. It was like I was in heaven. After that we had to make the cotainer flat like paper. Then we folded it like a box. Then we folded the sides in and then you are finished. It takes lots of practice to do that but do not put it in the rubbish! Put it in the recycling bin.

Escape From Danger - A Narrative


Many years ago two cousins called Olidah and Sia. They went to a park in Glen Innes.
They were riding their bikes and suddenly Olidah said to Sia, "That's a big dog with huge sharp teeth." The dog was chasing them. Sia said, "We must run into the tunnel and hide there."
They waited and waited inside the dark tunnel but the dog did not go away. It stayed outside and barked and barked.
They girls were scared and did not know what to do. At last they heard a voice yelling at the dog and it ran away. It was a man from their street who said, "Come on girls." Olidah and Sia thanked him and they all went home together.

"Oh there is a big black dog coming after us." Shouted Jimmy.
"I think that is his owner." Shouted Jessica
"That's not his owner." Yelled Jimmy.
Jessica said, "That's the owner."
"He is a big strong man." Called Jimmy.
The man came to take his dog Max back home. "I'm sorry. I left my gate open." Said Jack the owner. "I will take you two back home."
The children were so glad they were not attacked. They will go to the park again.

One sunny day Josh and Jake decided to go to the windy park to ride their bikes. So they rode up and down the hills. Suddenly Jake heard a noise and looked at Josh.
 Josh said, "Oh no! A big black dog!" The fierce dog showed his very sharp teeth. The boys pedaled faster but the dog got closer. The dog barked loudly. Suddenly Josh fell off his bike. Jake was scared because he didn't know what to do. The dog barked ferociously at Josh. Jake said, "What are we going to do?" Jake saw a tree so he quickly helped Josh get up. Then they ran to a big tree. Josh said, "Let's climb this safe tree." So they climbed up to the first branch but the dog kept yapping and jumping up an down.
The dog jumped so high that Josh said, "Let's climb up another branch." Suddenly a big strong man appeared. He said, "Come here Sam." to the fierce dog. Then the man explained to them and said sorry. The man said, "This is my dog. He came off his leash and ran away. The dog is not scary he just wants to play. That's all." Said the man. Then the boys came down from the tree.

Here I am doing my sewing.
I like doing sewing because it is fun.

My Sewing


Here I am trying to tread my needle.
Threading the needle was tricky because I had to suck the end of the thread and try and put it in the needle hole. I had to sew around the flower.
I like sewing because it is easy to go up and down. I liked sewing the border.
When my artwork is finished I will give it to my dad and he will be proud of me.
I liked doing the flower  because you have to follow the yellow crayon that I had previously drawn.

The rude Rona and the Powerful Moon retold by Maris-Stella


One very dark night there lived a woman and her children. One of the children said that they were thirsty. Rona went to get some water for her children. Marama hid behind a cloud and Rona tripped and fell. Rona shouted at the moon and said "look what you have done!"
And the moon said "don't talk like that to me."
Rona said "I'll say what I like you silly old moon." 
The moon pulled Rona up to the sky and never came back down to Earth.
Rona said to her kids "I am up here with Marama." She said that the children had to look after themselves and find food for themselves. They were very, very sad. They always prayed for their mother and said sorry. She was up there with the Ngaio tree. The moon always treated Rona bad and horribly. Rona said to her kids "I will be okay and fine." The kids waited and waited for their mother to come back with the Taha full of water. But she didn't come back. The children went out of the whare and out to the cold forest and looked for their mother but they could not find her. Rona said "Look up to the moon and you will see me with Marama." So they children looked up and saw her.

Rona was never seen on Earth she was seen on the moon. 

Message: Be careful who you are talking to.

The Hare and the Tortoise Retold by Viane


Many years ago in a lovely meadow lived a show off Hare and a very slow Tortoise. Hare was a very mean rabbit and Tortoise was a very kind Tortoise. One day Hare made fun of him. He said "You are a very slow Tortoise."
Then Tortoise was very mad and red. Following this Tortoise said "Do you want a race?" Hare just laughed. He said "All right then, tomorrow afternoon. I'm going to come with my own crown." On the race day the people didn't think that Tortoise would win. They went to the start and Owl said, "Go!" And Hare ran as fast as his legs could move him. Tortoise just plodded on like a slow motion robot. Hare ran so very fast that when he looked back he couldn't see Tortoise. Hare said to himself "I am going for a nap. Hare went and sat down near a lovely tree. All of a sudden Hare fell asleep for a very long time until the sun went down. Tortoise plodded quietly on then he went past Hare. Tortoise crossed the finish line. Hare thought he had won but he saw Tortoise at the finish line waiting for him.
Hare said, "I'm sorry and I won't
do it again." Hare learnt his lesson.
Tortoise said "It's okay. It was just a race. They lived happily ever after.

The message is don't give up.

The Hare and the Tortoise Retold by Falakiko


One hot summer morning there lived a quick runner called Hare and a slow green Tortoise who was kind and never showed off. One day quick Hare made fun of Tortoise. Then Tortoise got very red and mad and challenged Hare to a 2 kilometer race. Hare laughed and said "You can't catch up to me! You think you can beat me? We'll see about that!" Said Hare "Let's see who wins."
After their horrible arguing they ran, except Tortoise he just plodded while Hare ran. He said to Tortoise "Hurry up you little green Tortoise." When Tortoise got to the starting line they said together "Take your mark, get set, go!" Quickly Hare ran in a blaze and left Tortoise behind plodding along the dirty, dusty road with his green little legs. Hare was far away from Tortoise so he thought that he could have a sleep, so he ate a carrot from a bush, felt drowsy and sleepy. Then there was silence and Hare fell in a deep sleep. Later Tortoise saw Hare snoring, he moved his head but Hare still slept on and Tortoise went past Hare and won the race.
