Early Europeans


Room 15 have been finding out about the Early Europeans who came to NZ. We read about the Whalers and Sealers, Missionaries, Settlers and Traders. We wrote scripts as if we were one of these people and recorded our scripts with our animations of the European ships arriving in NZ playing in the background. Mine is one of the ones that was finished and played on P.E.N.N. - our school news programme.

"Albert" by William Taylor

Rita and I have chosen "Albert" for our first podcast in 2010.

Joey's Mum loves going to the Refuse Transfer Station (another name for the rubbish dump) because she often finds treasures there. The most valuable treasure Joey and his mother ever found at the dump was Albert, a very suprising cat.

Rematch Capture the Flag


"Go" shouted Miss King ,we charged towards the middle of the field like two angry armies wanting to fight. It was the rematch of capture the flag. Room 14 was playing against room 15 on the bottom field on Friday afternoon.
We ran to the middle of the field like a herd of stampeding animals, lots of people stopped but I just kept running because I had no idea what to do. When I ran onto room 14's side I went outside of the cones and got out straight away. Miss King told me to freeze and put my hand up. I was waiting for a long time before Ashleigh finally came and rescued me from room 14's side. After that I just stayed in room 15's safezone for the rest of the game.But once I started to understand the game I just kept trying to tag people so they wouldn't end the game by getting the flag to their side.When one person came onto our side I just ran as fast as I could to try and get them.But when I tried to get one person everyone else from room fourteen ran over to our side. I was getting really annoyed. But as frustrated as I was I just had to keep trying as hard as I could. At the end of the game normally it ends with both teams on each others side trying to come up with a plan to get the flag back to there side.I was getting really bored because I was still guarding from my side.It was so boring because it was just like the game froze.I just wanted to sit down until the game started moving again.Finally the game started moving again but it was room 14 who got the flag back to there side.Room15 were really sad about the game but I was just happy it was over.
