Family Outing

“Get ready we’re going soon”, my dad said. I was so excited to go to the beach because it was a hot day and I hadn’t been for a swim in ages.

“Aye this doesn't look like the beach”. We had arrived at Sylvia Park to pick up some food to eat at the beach. My family and I had heaps of plans but we all wanted to go to the beach, that was the first plan anyway.

As we approached the beach we didn’t see anyone swimming, but as we reached the sand there was only a few people in the water. It was cold enough that it was windy so I wondered  what it was like it the water. I touched the water and the first thing that went in mind was... “ I AM NOT SWIMMING IN THIS COLD WATER!”

I was really bored sitting on the sand watching people swimming in the water. I couldn’t stand being bored, I was supposed to be having fun, so I had no choice but to dive straight into the cold water. I swam around for abit then I was used to the cold water and in no time I was actually thinking the water was sort of warm.

I had enjoyed going to the beach with my family, and definitely would want to go again!

My Improved Piece Of Writing ( Electronic Badge )


“Yes we’re nearly finished.” Today the year sevens from Pt England went down to Tamaki College for tech (Technology). I was so excited because I knew my group was going to be finishing a badge in electronics.
 

“Come on guys we have to finish this today.” As my group and I were putting things together I started to get confused because I forgot where the battery clip went. Luckily my group remembered, so we were sweet.


As my group and I came to the finishing point, everyone in it were looking relieved. After all our hard work ( “actually the girls hard work” ) we finally finished the badge in it was ready to fire up. We had great difficulty with making all nine L.E.D lights working.

“Come on, come on” I said, we tried to make the badge work but it just didn’t seem to get working. One light worked and that was not good. But we were still happy, because at least one out of ten worked. When Mr Maholtra marked our badge we got an alright score but it could've been better if all the lights worked.  

I enjoyed making a badge in electronics and can’t wait to see what i’m going to be doing in my next tech class. I have learnt alot of things and picked up some experience and hope I can use that experience in the future!

Reflection On My Project


video
In the past few weeks The year 7&8 extension group have been making movies about an Olympic Controversy. I have made a movie about a Controversy that happened in the 1956 Olympic games in Melbourne. I have had trouble making this movie but I am happy that I completed the task.

I reckon I have done good in some areas like my graphics and voice over but I think I did bad with my script and conclusion. I hope I get good marks because it took me a long time to put this movie together.

Lunch At My Auntie's house... Here we come!

Oh man I am so excited, I said to myself. Last week my family and I went to my aunt's new house for lunch. I couldn’t wait because it was my first time going to her house.

As soon as we arrived at her house I went to say “hello” and waited in their lounge for lunch. I could could smell the food from in the lounge, it made my mouth water and it also made me more impatient. When my aunt said “foods nearly ready” I was happy and couldn’t wait for the moment to start eating.

As I took the first bit of a samosa I was surprised by the beautiful taste. Then I took a spoonful of curry chicken and rice. I was very satisfied by the food that I think I went back and had another two plates of food.

After a nice lunch my family and I watched a bit of T.V then not long after we got ready to go home. I hopped in the car with a big smile on my face. As we drove out of their driveway my family happily said goodbye and waved.

I had enjoyed my time at my aunt’s house, and there's no doubt that I want to go again!

Level 1... Beep!


“Beep... Oh no, I knew this was going to be a bad way to end the day. Last week Room 18 did the Beep Test I did not look forward to it.


When I started jogging to the first line, I already knew that I was going to pull out near level two or three. After a few minutes jogging I was starting to die out but I managed to carry on. it was tiring because it went level 1 stage 1 to stage 8.

As I got around level 2 stage 5 I was really feeling tired but I was trying to push myself. I was out of breath and had no choice but to pull out. I pulled out at level 3 stage 1 And I was disappointed because I wanted to get to Level 4.

I didn’t like doing the Beep Test but I guess it is good exercise. Even though I didn’t reach the level I wanted to reach I still enjoyed doing the Beep Test, and next time I am going to try to achieve my goal!

Saturdays Win


“Ok team, 10:30 down at Hamlin park is where we are going to meet.” said our coach. Last week my Rugby club ( Marist ) had a game against Mt Wellington.            

On that day I was a bit lost because I was not listening to my coach when he was explaining where we were playing. I finally arrived at Hamlin park, raced to the fields and put my boots on. After a few minutes I asked my coach if we were still having a game because the other team wasn’t there.Finally they showed up.

During the game I was getting worried that my club was going to lose because the other team was scoring heaps of tries. In the end we managed to hold them off and win. After the game was finished My team lined up shook hands with the other team and sat down with the other members of the team.

“Ok team I am going to give out the certificates for outstanding achievement and player of the day.” In my head I was saying to myself it’s definitely not going to be you. BUT NEK MINUTE....... “ Kingston Lagitupu for outstanding achievement”. I was so shocked and happy because it was my first time getting a certificate.

At the end of the day everyone was tired and couldn’t wait to get home. I was definitely looking forward to going home, and enjoying the rest of my day!

Valentines Restaurant / Uncle's Birthday


“Yeah I can’t wait till tonight!” Last week all of my dad side of the family, including me went to Valentines for my uncle’s Birthday.

After the prayer was said I happily joined the queue. “Man this looks delicious”, I said to myself. I had stacked on chips, fish, butter chicken and to wash it all down with a glass of nice cold water on the side. As I was munching into this delicious food, I stopped for a second and said to myself “hang on if I eat heaps now I with have no more room in my stomach for dessert.

I might wait a few minutes before I have dessert. After sitting down for a few minutes I was ready for dessert. There were heaps of things to eat but I just had Vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce. After one bowl I went for one more then I was full.

At the end of the night I was happy and I had enjoyed myself. I deffinetly want to go there again!
