experience in extension

experience in  extension 
Being in extension this year was amazing. When I first heard my name being called I was scared thinking I was in trouble. I am more than happy to say that being in extension is Awesome, we are so lucky that we get the opportunity to do so much. For example meeting The boat Hikianalia, learning about the three p’s, biodiversity,  and making an advertisement  for the 2015 production.

This year in extension my favorite thing was meeting the people from malama honua and learning about biodiversity. When doing these amazing things  I have not only seen but learnt different stuff,  I have learnt about bees and  how they adapt to survive and what they do. If it wasn't for extension I wouldn't be learning something new, that's why I would like to say on behalf of  extension we would like to say  a vast thank you to Miss Langitopu for making this happen.

Extreme asthma attack

WALT:  write a recont

It was Friday afternoon, I started to panic. My body warmed up and I couldn’t breathe, I tried to use my asthma pump but it felt like it was  just not working. I finished my third asthma pump and boom... my face turned purple and the asthma attack began.  

Earlier that day on Friday morning  as I was walking to school I stopped for a while to take a big breath. I looked down at my feet and I thought I would be alright. As time went on I felt queasy and felt like vomiting. That's when I knew something was going to happen.

Later on that day while sitting down inside my house, I looked around and I started seeing everyone duplicated. “Maybe going to sleep would help” I wondered. So I slept. Some time later I woke up and started coughing. It was hard for me to stop . “I can't breathe” I shouted hardly. My dad came in and I asked him to call the ambulance as I knew going in my dad's car without any medical treatment would be a disaster.      

“Wee ooooh weeeee ooooh”, while nervously hearing the ambulance I start shaking thinking off injections. As the ambulance came in they quickly ask me some questions and put a mask filled with qas on my mouth and face to calm me down. Time passed and I was in the vehicle, as soon as I got to Starship hospital they put me in the emergency room and forced me to get a injection.  They said they had to put salt water and other things in my blood to keep me healthy and alive.   

I was as hungry as a tiger trying to look for food. The doctor said if I ate anything I would vomit. I took a bite of toast and blaaaaaah I vomited up everywhere. My mother told me to sleep but it was hard with a empty stomach.  It's been three days in the hospital and the doctor said I needed to do a xray and a breathing test. After having the test I got my results and I am very sad to say it was bad. They said I had too much air in my chest!!!

It was the 4th day and as soon as I woke up there was a lady in front of me asking for a blood test, I was more than frightened. It was 12 o'clock and I was the last remaining patient, lucky me. They said they would put numbing cream on my vain to keep me from of screaming.  Right after lunch they called me over for the blood test. They tightened my arm and the nurse was so nice that while it was happening,  with fear I was able to blow bubbles to skip that moment. After that terrifying moment the nurse told me to tell my friends of what a scary thing I had done.

It had been a week and I finally got some good news. The doctor said right after my sweat test that I was able to go home.  I was really sad that I was going to miss the opportunity to go to Kawau Island with all the year sixes, At Least I camped in the hospital.  As soon as we reached home, for the first time  I was pleased to see my brothers.  Since my brothers knew I was sick they did whatever I wanted them to do.  For example asking for a drink of water or a banana, everything I needed was brought to me.   

Painful and hurt, that's how I felt in the hospital.  I thought about it  and maybe it was my that fault I ended up in the hospital. Maybe if I had used my orange asthma pump every day I would of been going to camp with all my friends. Maybe I was not supposed to go to camp, whatever it was I have learnt to use my asthma pump everyday. Warning kids you must not  smell or eat dust mites, or you might have asthma and end up in the same situation like Rima.
On week six all the year six students got the opportunity to go to kawau island. After having a asthma attack I got stuck in the hospital instead of going to kawau island with all my friends. I was pretty sad but atleast I got all the medical treatment that I needed. I am also really happy to be back home and after a week I can go back to school!!

There are four contestants, me, hosea, Inez and christian. Our crazy teacher says we have to eat frog eggs and pond water. I was sure he was lying but I was still afraid . He brings in the food and with relief I say YES!.

This week Mr good had made us do a challenge called fear factor. There were four contestants that had to drink pond water and eat frog eggs. As I was one of the four contestants I was more than scared but I also knew That it was one of Mr goodwin's tricks.

Cindy in the house, reflection and review

Cindy In The House!!! Everyone sitting down in the hall for the show to start. Someone whispering next to me says there is going to be dancing,singing,  and acting. I was more than excited. Shh everyone says as the show begins. When the show keeps going on, my mouth keeps opening to show  everyone how interesting it is.  I was so interested that I tried not to blink, it was impossible! Later on the dancers came on the stage and they were more than confidant,  I was really proud of my friend Talita. After the show ended I was sad because I wanted more.

Everything went well and this is how the show went
Like every show, play or a movie there's always a problem and this one was a big one. So far this is all that happened. It was all about a girl who wanted  to take part in the royal prefix ball.  Unfortunately her two step cousins and her auntie wouldn't let her go.  Later on while cleaning the house a sports coach comes on the screen and tells her what to do.  She wears a beautiful dress and a pair of white sandals to the prefix ball. When twelve O'clock she runs of and leaves one sandle. People say,  what will happen next…………….  After all the scene and just like every happy movie Cindy and her family lived happily ever after.
I loved the play and I say I would give it a 9 / 10

Year five and six market day

Walt: write an interesting and detailed recount 
It was Friday morning and there I was at school, while walking I remembered it was market day. Selling and buying, that's all that was happening. Suddenly , I check to see if I brang my product, I surely didn't want to let my team down.  When looking down I sighed with relief, my product was in my bag.

Snif snif snif what is that I smell. I realised it was the aroma coming from homeware candles. Every team had set up everything ready to go for the trade and enterprise 2015 market day. I so excited that I stayed near the porch until morning tea finished. We were all there for a reason, to sell buy and make money.  There wasn't just homeware but also jewellery, stationery, music and toys.  Every group had their products it was all so exciting.

Finally it was time, My group and I decided it that I will sell first and they will buy. I had an idea to start doing a add to entertain people to our candles. We have made six orange candles, and sixteen skull faced candles. Entertaining people for our candles were working, Later on the whole selling thing became a challenge, The other homeware group challenged us to see who can make the most money, Challenge accepted.

When selling the products I realised our product was easily disappearing one by one. After some time I was informed that we were making  a lot of money/ pts and pieces. While selling the products I couldn't wait to start buying before everything was out of order. I was really interested in the popsicle sticks and knew that there were a lot of fans. I was feeling too excited staring at people eating and licking the popsicle sticks, one of my team mates bought everyone in our group tiny popsicle stick, but I thought that was NOT enough.

“Half time”, says Mr S. I was now free to buy my popsicle stick. When happily getting there they were all sold out.  With my head down I felt very very sad, I put my head up and there I see cute cupcakes that looked kinda like pandas. I enjoyed it as it went it my mouth it was delicious. I ate my cupcake in front of the popsicle lovers, showing off. I couldn’t finish my cupcake, so I gave it to my friend.  I started to tour around and admire such things like maths book covers, loom band Jewellery, drums, ukuleles, a variety of food and different kinds of toys.

After a hard day of shopping and selling it was time for market day to end. Having fun and enjoying market day made me more than happy, But ending it made me sad. We then had to count our money and that frown turned upside down.  We made fifteen pts, even though we made a little I was happy for my team and me.  But I myself was still enemies with the popsicle loves.

multiplying and divideing.

Maths problem solving

Walt: multiply and divide decimal numbers
This week for maths problem solving we are learning to multiply and divide
decimal numbers. My buddy and I thought that our task was going to be hard.
After reading the problems we realised that it was times and divide and many more that could help solve our problem. Here is a link to my buddys blogSeini. Have a look at our maths problem solving.

Trade fair

Walt: use language that paints a picture in the minds of our reader

Having my own business group would be great, that reminds me of our term 3 topic, trade and enterprise. Back in the day when money wasn't investigated people had to trade.  It was for goods and services, for example getting  a haircut  from someone means servers but if you ask someone to do something and in return you give something back that means goods.  When having no money we are having to trade and when having money we are to give money.  Enterprise means a lot of things for example a business group, or selling a product and many more. It also means making money, trading and enterprising is  a big difference. Trading is trade and enterprising is selling for money.

Here are 6 groups, music,kitchen,stationery,homeware,toys and jewellery.  
When I came to school I was informed that I was in a group called homeware. First I had no idea about the topic but I started seeing some of the other groups making their products. Our goal was to make a product each that
relates to our group.  Mr Somerville and some other teachers  informed and explained  us that there was going to be a fair in some time. When time for the fair every group was ready to take orders  from other groups. My group and I were pleased of our product and how many people buyed it. We had a feeling it wouldn't work but I think we did pretty good job. Just so you know we were selling a orange candle and a skull faced candle. I think the way we got people to make orders was by giving a little show about what we were selling and that it will brighten up your day.   

You must be wondering how do we take orders and pay without pts and pieces. At Pt England school the year five and six students have their own bank accounts to collect their pts. Pts and pieces are known as money, for example 2pts and 50 pieces is  like 4 dollars and 1 doller. The year five and six student has had a trade fair where they make there own product and try to make it look interesting for customers to buy.  The Pts and pieces are needed so that if you order something they can take the money you owe them from your bank.

After the trade fair took place we were warned  that our orders have to be done in week 8. My buddy Htet Htet started to make our job even harder by saying buy one get one free. Peeling an orange without breaking it apart is really hard and making the shape of a skull is worser.

Amazing Loofahs

Walt: Learn and use new Vocab.

this week for literacy we are learning to learn to use vocab. We had to read a book about loofahs and write about it. It felt like writing and doing a advertisement. loofahs are known as scrubbers and they grow as plants Crazy right!

What kind of chocolate is this?

As it appears that the food I ate looked like hard, delicious chocolate.

The chocolate I was eating is called popping candy. When I did not know what it was I was pleased of how it looked like,  the color brown gazing in my eyes made me feel as if it was chocolate.  Mr Goodwin says that the thing I was eating cost  five dollars and forty cents.  This product can be found in countdown and many  more places, the thing I was eating was a king sized one,it is long and  it's quite fat.  

When admiring the  brown thing my brain instantly told me it was chocolate.
Sniff sniff sniff the outstanding smell  flying through my nose reminded me of
peanuts.  When tasting the chocolate it surprisingly tasted like lollies and chocolate.  It was very shocking to see lollies in my chocolate, it made everything taste disgusting.  

After knowing that there were lollies in my chocolate, I thought if they could take
all the lollies out it could improve the product. Remembering that I smelt peanuts made me realise that they should add fresh  peanuts.  Some people like me might not like sour and sweet stuff so taking out the lollies is a great idea for people like me. I also realised that it  the name of  this product was popping candy.  

I think Mr Goodwin did a good job by making us taste something without knowing the flavor.  I felt like a detective when I had to find out what kind of chocolate it was, it might of looked like normal chocolate but taking a bite was the best part. The aftertaste was the worst of them all. Each person eating chocolate felt like chocolate land.  I think this wasn't the best chocolate ever but it was pretty good… but wait for the after taste.

This week we were learning about eating somthig without knowing the flavor. 
when it comes to eating I am relly bad at  guessng  the flavor. Luckily Mr Goodwin made a chart of showing how it looks how it smells and how it feels.  Click on this link to see how the chart looks like...Chart
sorry if I caint show you the picture of the chocolate, my mouse dosent work.
 Here is a link of chocolate..

Advertisement for beans bags, 3pts whole day

Walt: pursued the reader to agree with our message
Bean bags for hire

Its comfitiable, it's helpful yup its the well known bean bags.

Sitting on hairy, dirty carpets and uncomfortable chairs is not what I want to do. Luckily the year five and six block have something better than dirty, hairy and uncomfortable, you guessed it its two new bean bags. Its comfortable, it's easy to sit on and you only need 3 pts, It is so comfortable that it will become your best friend.

The bean bags are filled with  soft ,white, fake beans so that means if you want to play with snow but it never snows just tear it apart and you will have hot snow. You might be wondering how the bean bag is so comfortable? well that rubber skin you're leaning on is what make the bean bags very comfortable. Are you some of the people who move a lot well the bean bag can turn into any shape that is suitable for you.

The bean bags  comes in  a lot of colors but we decide it to pick the color of the slippery grass and the bright sky.  It is the most amazing colors you will ever see.

Like I informed you on my introduction that with only 3pts you will have a new best friend. Our company have just been informed that if you pay three pts you can have the bean bag for the whole day yup for the whole day.  You can also show off by sitting down on the relaxing and comfortable bean bag while your friends sits down on the hairy floor.  

Remember for only three Pts the bean bag is yours. Heres a tip from the professionals  come really early to school so you don't need to argue with your friend about whos going to be  on the bean bag. Just 3pts and it's all yours.

Today room six reading and writting class we learning how to write a advertisment to puseud people to bying the bean bags to sit on. The bean bags coest three doolers to sit on for a whole day.
