Thank You letter- Mrs Wright

Dear Mrs Wright,

My name is Jane and I am from Saint Pius X School in room three.

Thank very much for the new books and I really enjoy reading them all.

My favourite book was called ‘Green Princess saves the day’. That was my favourite book because it tells me how she become a princess and how she saved the day, also other interesting things about her too.

Thank you very much for the book you had given to me I really like reading it. Thank you and may God bless you and have a happy christmas.

Yours sincerely,
Room three

Netbook Reflection

In the beginning of the year room three had these little netbooks and each one of us had our own one. Some of us used our brother’s or sister’s netbook from the previous year. When I first got my netbook I was so scared that I might break it. We were all happy to use our netbooks but the only thing we were unsure of was how to use it.

As the year went on we all knew how to use a netbook. Also it helped us with our work online. When you use a netbook your hands don’t hurt that much and it is easier to use a netbook instead of a book.

In room three when you have a netbook you always have to remember to charge your netbook, otherwise it will run out of battery.

In 2013 I am looking forward to moving up a level in maths. Also I will try to be at, not below on my national standards. If I try really hard I will get to above.

The Lego story

Once upon a time there was an old man named Oli and he had four son and his wife. Oli started a toy shop with his son Godfrey in 1932 after Olis wife died. The toy shop was called Lego and they made toys out of woods. The toy shop was a family business.

The main characters were Olis four son and his wife and Oli too. Oli and Godfrey loved to make toys for the kids and also so they could have money for their family. One windy night there was an fire in the toy shop and everything burnt down.

After the fire Oli had to build a new toy shop which is called Lego. Oli and Godfrey run the family business together. Soon Oli died and Godfrey had to run the business by himself.

There was another fire in the toy shop so Godfrey had to rebuild Lego. After they built Lego Godfrey thought that he needed an airport also a bigger place to build Lego land. Lego land was all built and they are still going today.

Manaiakalani Film Festival

On a lovely day Saint Pius X school went to Sylvia Park to the Manaiakalani Film Festival. There were all kinds of different schools there and they all had different movies too.
When we got there we lined up outside ready to go inside. After that we went inside and all the schools had to sit down. Room three was one of the classes that sat at the back of the theatre.

After that we began with Saint Pius X room three’s movie. Our film was called ‘three words’ it was dark and everyone was watching. Everyone clapped loudly at the end of our movie.

My favorite film was room three’s three words
because I was in that film, and I appeared in it three times.

Kids for Kids concert

On a cool night room three and Miss G with Miss McLoughlin went to the Kids for Kids Concert at Manukau, but we got dropped off from our mum’s and dad’s.

When we got dropped off we went to this little room where all of the kids that were in kids for kids played. Rachel and I with some other girls were playing kucklebones, we had lots of fun there but then Dina said “we only have 10 minutes” we started to get ready but I was nervous.

We did a little bit of warm up following Dina and listened to what she said. After that we had to go to our line that we were put in. I was a bit shy. After that Dina went to say a few words to the Audience.

We had to sing our first song, I was really happy because our first song was a good start. Next we had to sing the other songs that we learnt.

After that we had half time and ate a snack then we had to go back on stage. We had four more songs to go and then we were done. We sang all our songs and then Miss G had to lead us to our mum’s and dad’s.

I went home with my friend Rachel. I was proud of myself and it was a lovely night and fun too. We were all happy and we did alright with our singing too on that night.

Cross Country

On Friday 24 August, it was a bright and sunny day for St Pius X catholic school to have their cross country. The teachers were there to help the little ones to go the right way in their X country course. Parents were watching the little kids running, and cheering for them too. The 9 year olds were sitting up and cheering for them while we waited for their turn to go.

After the little kids cross country it was time for the big kids turn. We had to wait for our turn because it was from the 13 year old then the 12 year old and down from there. I was a bit sweaty went I was waiting for the 10 years olds turn.

When it came to the 10 year olds turn I was nervous, but luckily the boys went first then the girls. Miss G said to the boys “ready, go”, they ran and ran. Next up it was the girls turn and Miss G said “ready go”. I run as fast as I could and once I got down the hill I was puffing and I was tired. I saw the 10 year old boy walking and talking to each other so I just run past them. Even though I was tired I still tried to keep up with my age and ended up coming first.

When we had done our cross country course we had a little talk with our friends. After that Miss G said to us to say to ourselves “well done me” and we all did. Although I was tired of running I had a good day. The whole school did and what an awesome day we had from God, Fantastic.

Net book Description

My netbook is so special to me because it helps me do my work in class time.

My learning tool is black and it has keys on it but it is not shiny on the outside. My mini netbook has no sounds but only if I turn on the sounds. My little netbook feels hard and kind of heavy too, it is smooth and slippery sometimes if I hold it with one hand.

My triple E pc is always at school every night in the C.O.W. but I can only take my triple E pc home one day in a week. In the day time I put my netbook in my tote tray.

My little netbook help me do my work in class and it get me to the internet so I could share my work with miss G.

My little triple E pc is used by hands and we have to be careful with our little triple E pc because sometime the keys fall off if you are rough with it.

Our learning tool is so special because we are some of the first students in New Zealand to use a learning tool for our work.

My netbook helps me do my work in class time so I have to take responsibility of it. It is important that you are careful when you are working on the netbook and take charge of our learning.
