** West Ham beaten in NZ!!! **

West Ham Beaten in NZ J
Hi my name is Maui and I’m going to tell you about the Wellington Phoenix vs West Ham United Game that some KRS kids got to see.

First we had to go home then come back to school in evening to get on the bus.
Before the bus got there we got t-shirts that said West Ham vs Wellington Phoenix 2014 from Phil then we hopped on the bus and rode all the way to Eden Park.
As soon as we got to the city we hopped off then checked if everyone was together, we walked to the main entrance where we had to scan our tickets before we could go through.

After that we walked and looked down onto the football pitch from above. We then arrived to the smells of food. Mr. Robertson said we could pick something to eat to last us until we reached home.
Then we walked to our seats where there was a pre-game (Reds vs the Whites).
A little while later a fiery lady came and told us we were in the wrong seats.
We went on another expedition to the other side of the stadium then we sat down and waited until the game started.
The teams started to warm up for the game, passing around the ball, stretches etc.
Both teams came boosting out the tunnel jogging out one by one with children by their side then we started watching the game.

Andrew Durante headed in an early goal for Phoenix (15mins)
The stadium roared with people cheering and clapping, some people looked surprised and that’s when my support went from West Ham to The Wellington Phoenix – I couldn’t help myself!

Gorrin scored a stunning goal just before half time.
West Ham’s substitute scored on 71th minute and attacked hard near the end.
West Ham put a lot of pressure on as they were hungry to claw their way back.

Everyone really enjoyed themselves.

Māori language week - By Neisha (Room 19)

- Māori Language Week -

Every year since 1975 New Zealand has marked Māori Language Week. This is a time for all New Zealanders to celebrate Te reo Māori (the Māori language) and to use more Māori sayings in everyday life.

In 2014, Māori Language Week is from 21-27 July; the theme is 'Te Kupu o Te Wiki', 'The Word of the Week’.
This is part of the original theme of Māori Language Week, ‘Arohatia te Reo – cherish the language’.

This year marks the 27th anniversary of the creation of Te Taura Whiri i Te Reo Māori (the Māori Language Commission).

Te reo Māori is feeling rebirth and more people speak the language. There are Māori-language/bilingual schools and classrooms, Māori radio stations, and a Māori television channel.
There was a time when some people objected to hearing Māori greetings such as ‘Kia ora’.

Māori became an official language of New Zealand in 1987, alongside English and sign language. Te Taura Whiri i Te Reo Māori was well-known in the same year to help Te reo. Along with the Human Rights Commission and Te Puni Kōkiri, it plays a key role in the annual Māori Language Week.

 Some common words we can use everyday:

Nau mai:  Welcome
Nga tae:  Colour
Anei:  Here
Raru:  Problem
Homai:  Give Me
Kupu:  Word
Panga:  Puzzle
Mea:  Thing
Whakautu:  Answer
Whakaaro:  Thoughts
Rawe:  Excellent
Kai:  Food
Miraka:  Milk
Hiainu:  Thirsty
