Re-writing the Legend of Maui

Long long ago there was a boy called Maui and he was walking around in the forest. Then some men just appeared from no where and they asked Maui "Do you want powers?" and he replied "Yes". Then the men started saying weird things and a weird feeling came to Maui. 

When he went home he found a great big hook and he picked it up. The moment he touched the hook he was high up in the air. Then he touched it again and he fell flat on the ground. He thought he was going to tell his siblings about his new hook.

He heard his siblings moaning about how fast the days were going because the sun was running fast across the world. Maui decided to go to the east and go with his brothers. The next day he got his things prepared. 

It was still dark in the morning when he transformed into an eagle and his brother got on his back and they took off to the east. When they got there they found some flax on the ground and they decided to make a net out of it and then Maui used his magical hook to make the net stronger. 

When the sun came out they waited until the sun was in the right position and then they put the net over the sun. They got the sun then he said to the sun "You have to walk around the earth because people don't have enough time to do things so you have to walk or else I will come back and hurt you with my hook."  The sun agreed to walk instead of run around the earth and then they let the sun go. 


Later on that day they went back home and everyone had time to do what they wanted and everyone lived happily ever after.

The End

My Weird Poem

There's a noddle on my nightie 
And there's a poodle having a fight.
There's a snapper in my car
And a flipper in my chocolate bar.


There's a golf ball in my bin 
And a nettle  in my skin. 
There's a girl sitting on a chair 
And I'm having fun at the fair.


There's a hair clearer in a my room burning

And a spoiler spoiling movies. 
 There's a laptop for sale online 
And my favorite kind of ice-cream is tip top kinds.

On Christmas morning my two sisters, my two cousins, my aunty, my uncle and my mum and I we all woke up. My sisters and my cousins and I we all ran into the living room with excitement on our faces.
At first I thought that I was going to only get one present. But my prediction was wrong I reserved more then I thought. One of the presents I got have the mini donut maker I felt so happy to get it because I loved caking.


Then we had to get ready to go to church. After we all got into me uncles  car and we all put on our sit belt and then my uncle started driving his  car. Then eventually we got there and we all got out and my mum took my sisters, my cousin and me to our kids class. Then my mom went to my uncle and aunty and my little cousin went to her babies class. Then my mum and my uncle and aunty went into church.


Later on that day after church we all went back home to get change. Then we all went to a restaurant for lunch with some of our church friends. I didn't now what the restaurant was called but it was one of those restaurants that cook their food in front of you. I was tried of waiting so I decided to go and play with my friend from church.  The food was so yummy but that wasn't all. The best part of all  was the desert it felt like I was in heaven. Then we all went home and had a happy Christmas evening.

The Time I Went To The Easter Show 🐇

My Favourite Memory
When I was with my two auntie's Prisila and Charlotte and my little cousin 'Moses', at the Easter show. I did not know what the Easter show was but my aunties said that I known that what the Easter show was but really I did so I just pretended to. First we were to get some tickets so we had play some games or go on some rides. Then we found the place to buy tickets in but there was a great big line so we just went in the and then eventually we got to the deck and we brought seven tickets. So we first went to look for some games or rides that cost seven tickets then we found a ride.


The ride was like cars attached to a marital thing in the medal of the area. My aunty Charlotte gave the seven tickets to the person who was controlling it the ride and I went and got into one of the car things when every body got into the ride stated spinning. At first it was okay but when it started going to fast I started to have a tummy ache, then when it was finish I my tummy ache was a bit better and I felt happy because the ride stopped and I got a bit dizzy. Then I got out and I went to my auntie's and my cousin.
Then we went to look for a spot to eat at eventually we found a spot, then we got out our food and we started eating.

After we finished eating we packed up our things and we went to see a car show and there was a motor circle and someone was on it and the person did a flip and it was so cool and awesome. After the car show was over the Easter show started and it was so cutie to show because there was some babies dressed up in bunny colostrum and it was so cutie.The the show was over and we went to a flea market and there was a fourchon taller there and my aunties wanted to stop by and watch what happened and it was boring to me because I just had to look after my little cosine Moses. Then after my aunties finished watching we all went home to my aunty's house.

When you get bitten by a pests

WALT to explain what happens before and after you are bitten by an insect.

I heard a buzzing like a mosquito. It zoomed across my face as if it was a flash of lightning. I tried not to move so it wouldn’t bite me. Then it went around me a lot of times like a roller coaster. I started to worry because it would bite me if it landed on me.

Firstly when you get bitten you start to itch a little and you might think that the bite is infected like as if it was carrying the zika virus or other viruses. It is painful to get bitten by an insect. Did you know why they bite you? They bite you because we humans are warm blooded and they like warm blood.

Secondly mosquitoes have six legs so three legs on each side. Mosquitoes have a very skinny body. Skinny like your our small finger. They are so small you can’t even see them. Mosquitoes have a small body but a large face.

Thirdly how to prevent pest from coming to your house? Don’t leave the doors open for too long especially at night because mosquitoes and other insects can come into your house.

Keep doing it and you’ll have a self and healthy home!

What's the time?



Hi! today I was checking if I could tell the time and the results were that I can read time. If you can not read time then you need to ask someone to teach you how to  read the time or practice at home.

My school life


Hi my name is Tupou and I am in room 10 at Ruapotaka Primary school. I am 9 years old and I am the oldest granchild in my family. I feel happy to be back at school because I didn't do much at home during the summer holiday. I am enjoying swimming right now because we are learning new skills that will help us be confident swimmers in beaches, pools and other swimming places. I like maths because I learn how to use different strategies to solve one problem and when I get the answer right it makes me proud. I am excited for the rest of the year!
