|Bubbles is happy in his cage at school|
Have you seen my parrot, Bubbles?
His body is grey like an old man’s beard and he is small like a size 2 shoe. Bubbles’ body is fluffy like a cozy blanket and his small like a tennis ball. His beak is red like a lovely rose and his beak is sharp like a grey knife. His nose is dangerous like a dragon's sharp teeth and His beak is pointy like a witch's black hat.
Bubbles’ claws are sharp like our school pencils that we use to write with and his claws are scratchy as an annoyed cat’s claws. Bubbles' claws are brown like uncooked rice, it’s so yucky.
Bubbles eyes are like a circular plates and black like some switched off computer screen. His eyes are like my teacher's eyes; they see everything.

Friday 5th April
Have you ever made some yellow, golden, tasty pancakes in your class before? Well I have.
On Friday 5th April room 8 and I made some yellow, golden, tasty pancakes. We made pancakes because Mrs Poa thought it would be fun to learn how to flip pancakes in our class.
Everyone went into a circle to see what Mrs Poa was doing. Mrs Poa had a bottle that had all the stuff that was needed called ‘the ready-mix’. Mavis took the bottle to put some water into it and when she came back Mrs Poa was shaking it. Everyone had a turn to shake the bottle. Shake, shake and shake!!
After that Mrs.Poa turned on the pan, next goes the butter. When Mrs Poa put the butter in the pan, we could hear the hot sizzling butter.
Next goes the pancakes, when Mrs Poa tipped the pancakes there were little bubbles, when they were done she flipped over the pancakes when she flipped it they were golden yellow like the sun and it was shaped like a 2 dollar coin.
After that Mrs Poa put the pancakes in a plate and she made some more pancakes. When Mrs Poa was finished, Mavis went around and gave us some pancakes.
It was fun to make pancakes, I liked eating them too.

On Friday 5th April Room 1 and 2 had a competition and Mrs Quist was the judge.
Mrs Quist chose Wairama and Journey as WINNERS. They read and listened to each other. They read and looked at the pictures pointed to the words, turned the page at the top right corner, and helped each other when needed . They told each other what their reading was like. . .It’s called feedback.
Room1 and 2 use Good Reader skills.

TOUCH TOURNAMENT SOUTH PARK
On Thursday 11th of April 2013 the touch team was waiting with excitement to go on a bus to SOUTH PARK!!! But first Ms Harpur luckily made sure that we all had a hat, sun screen, WATER, lunch and shoes. We were separated in to two teams, team A and team B. Now all we had to do was wait for the bus. A few seconds later we could hear the roaring of the bus as it came tearing up the road. Yay, we were nearly off! We hopped at the back because we had to drop off the softball and cricket team first. We all sighed because we were going to be dropped off last but then we heard that we were going to be dropped off first and we were all like yes!!! That was it we were off to South Park. We were so excited, we just wanted to get on the field and win.
When we got off the bus Star said it’s all about winning not having fun it’s not a fun day. Ms Harpur said we could have fun as long as we were winning! We headed down to the fields but before that we went to find a spot to put our bags down. We were in luck because Star found a nice cold shady spot under a huge tree. Ms Harpur told us it was a walnut tree and showed us what a walnut looked like. Then we had to go to the big white tent with all the other schools for a briefing. We sat next to a school that wore a red t-shirt and green or black shorts and on the other side of us was a school that had red stripes and black t-shirt, there shorts were black. Matua Tuare told us where each field was and that if a girl scored a try it would be 2 points and if a boy scored a try it would be 1 point. He also said that it was all about fun, huh?? But Star and Ms Harpur said??
Team A had a tie in their 1st game, lost their 2nd game and won their 3rd and 4th games. Team B lost their 2nd game but won the other four. After the games we had a race to see who the fastest school in Papakura was. In the girl’s race a girl from St Mary’s won, we came 4th. In the boy’s race a boy from Papakura Central won. He was small but incredibly fast. The girl from St Mary’s was so tall, she took huge long strides, no wonder she won! We came 3rd in the boy’s race.
After a short wait for the bus we were finally heading home. First we had to go and pick up the softball and cricket team, they were patiently waiting for us at Ray Small Park. After that we went back to school, it was home time when we got there so we just left. What an amazing day we had, we were exhausted!

Next I finished all my work fast and saw everyone else get their face painted too. We all were clowns and had all the same faces. When all of us had finished getting our faces painted white and red, Miss told us to line up. Shayde was holding the parachute in his hand.
We were all excited and a little noisy because we all really wanted to play with the parachute. We were all going to the field. I was happy to go and play with the parachute. All of us spread the parachute out.
Keara had the ball and had to throw it in the middle. We all played three games and it was the ball in the middle and it was about the colour on your right. If Miss taffard called your colour you would have to run under the parachute and go to the same colour somewhere else. We didn’t get the chance to play the third game because the bell rang and we were all hungry.
We all had our lunch and some people were still wearing their face paint. I loved dressing up as clown because they are so silly and funny at the same time.
