Catholic School Day

What a lovely sunny day today. We heard the bell rang and everyone came running to the front and lined up to get ready for school. The teachers spoke to us and told us that another school is coming and the name of the school was St Joseph, they came from Orakei. St Joseph came over to our school to celebrate the Catholic School Day.

We had morning tea early because the mass was at 11:00. After morning tea we came inside and did some maths stuff. Then the whole school came out and lined up and we went to the church and sat down on the chairs and waited until St Joseph came. When St Joseph came they came with their priest. The priest’s name is Father Terry and he was the main father because Father Ioane let him. After the mass Mrs Tui came up and told us what class we are going to be with. My class went with room 1, that was the year 6 & year 5’s, St Joseph only have 5 class they don’t have room 7 and year 8’s, only year 0 to year 6. But thats okay because they had lots of cultures, not just palagi people.

My buddy’s name was Siva Mena she was a Samoan. She was kind and funny she was from room 1(Room 1 is the highest class they don’t do it in order like us). Siva was head girl that means she was the leader of the school her and her best friend was the head leader. Siva is from St Joseph school (a school from Orakei). My buddy Siva gave me a badge and it says Catholic School’s Day 2013 St Josephs and Saint Pius X.  

Later on we had lunch with them and we asked them questions about their school and their prayer is the same as our prayer. After we had lunch with them we went to the hall and shared songs.  St Joseph sang Count On Me by Bruno Mars and Room Seven from Saint Pius sang I’m Yours by Jason Mraz. After that St Joseph girls and some boys came up and did kapa haka and it was fun. When they finished room 7 came up and sang a song they made up song. When they finished room 3 from St Pius came and did their cup song and when they finished Saint Pius sang an African blessing song.

When it finished some people from St Joseph came and said some things and the teacher came and said some speeches and two girls came up and held a board and it says Living the life of Treasure. They all signed their name on it and the teachers names and they put feathers on it, different colour feathers. Having the St Joseph kids was fun and cool we took some photos of them and their buddies and some of the teachers.

Pictogram blog

We are learning about statistical literacy. This means reading and writing about statistics. We learned about pictogram. One of the most important things to look for is the key. The key is important because it tells you how many pictures are they. Here is some example of the pictogram:

My mum description

My mum is tall and she has short black hair, she loves her work. I love my mum because she is so careful with what to do. My mum is so special to me because every time I am stuck on my homework she helps me or else she tells me to go to my big sister.

My mum sometimes likes KFC but she likes cooking the best. My mum loves cooking but when she is tired she tells my big sister to cook what she likes. Every time Tonga vs. New Zealand she always says Go Tonga. My mum likes going to Tonga because she always wants to go and see her little sister and her kids. Also she wants to see her country.  My mum likes vegetables because she always wants to eat vegetables for her lunch and dinner. My mother doesn't like doing dishes because she always gets tired.

My mother irons my clothes in the morning, makes me some breakfast. She always reminds me what is good and what is not good. She always loves me and always reminds me to be careful at what I am doing also she tells me to study hard.I love my mother because she is so special to me and she is an awesome mother. She guided me when I was little and now I am 10 she still guides me. I love my mother so much, she is a brave mother and I am proud to have her as my mother.
