My Netbook Reflection.

There are many reasons to why I really enjoy having to work with a netbook because using pencil and paper was cool but I didn’t really like writing with pencil because it was quiet slow to write. It is much faster using a laptop because all you have to do is press a letter on your key pad and it will type for you on your little screen in front of you. I like the fact if you can’t go on any web site on the net there will be a backup system on your netbook.

There are few reasons of dislikes of using my netbook and it has to do with problems. What I didn’t like about my netbook is sometimes it just doesn’t function properly and it plays up alot. Another problem was if I try to go on a web site it will freeze and load for long at the same time and I just get sick of it. Sometimes when I try to load up Firefox it takes for long and by the time it loads, there is 3 Firefox logos on top of my tool bar and I find it frustrating.

As we started to get our device there was a big different because it seem much easier for me to do my subjects. I think I have experience more things like improving in my maths and my writing by using this device. I find it easy to do my work on my laptop because when you do a mistake on your device you could just delete it, but if it on paper it will be hard to try erase it and it won’t look that neat. My other reason is that Study ladder as been building up my comprehension as well as Math whizz and that is cool because I’ve always been a guy that kinds of struggles and maths.

The biggest challenge for me having a netbook was trying not to get my laptop damaged at all. Definitely my other challenge was trying to charge my own without my mother doing it for me.

If the Netbook Scheme failed it would be very boring because it would be back to old school paper and pencil. It will be quiet hard to post interesting projects and presentation on our blogs if the netbook scheme failed and we won’t be having our own device to use during schools hours. I will very miss my laptop if the scheme failed because for me it manly helped me very much with my learning at school.

The Amazing Adventure To Camp Bentzon.

Camp Bentzon the best camp site ever!!. Getting to the island was a long journey for us to start our camp off. We had to travel by bus to Sand spit and it toke us about 90 minutes to get there. While we were there we were waiting for a few minutes until the ferry was ready for us to hop on board.

Sailing a water activity I mostly enjoyed with my group mates at camp. On my first go at sailing I didn’t know how to sail properly because it was the first time for me to start sailing. Before we were ready to get on our sail boat Peter the sailor instructor gave us some basic things to do while we our out enjoying our sailing. 1, when you are sitting on the boat you have to face your back to where the wind is coming from. I was a solar sailor which means sailing by your self. There was one thing I had trouble with and that was tipping over on my sail. Even though I didn’t know how to sail, I still enjoyed it.

Orientering a game that just amazed me!!. Walking in the woods trying to find the letters was just awesome because to me it was just like hiking the big hills. It took us about 20 to 25 minutes max to figure out the whole word for the game. At the end our group unscrambled the word and the word was four things that go on water that had something to do with camp.. The four things was raft, diggey, optimise and kayaking. Our team was really happy that we unscrambled the words because it was a really challenging game.

Swimming at camp was nice because the weather at Kauwau was a bit hot and we deserved the swim. It was really fun swimming with my friends because jumping off the pontoon together and doing silly faces was excellent. It was so fun that I wanted to stay in the water for a bit longer but I couldn't. Do you love swimming...?

I was hoping to stay at Kauwau Island for a few more days.

Can't To Go Camp Benzon.

There is going to be a FANTASTIC! trip to a Island that the year 6’s in Pt England School is going to. Do you know which Island we are going to? Well let me tell you it is........ Kawau Island and I am so excited.

I am so fulled up with excitements because I am looking forward to visit this Island. Waiting for the big day on the 15, of November 2011 which is tomorrow is so awesome for me. Can’t you wait for the big day to come?

There are some things that I am hoping to do at Camp Benzon. 1, getting to hiking the high mountains every day. 2, playing rugby and football and 3 sailing with my friend to survivor Island and doing some fun activities there.

Doing the amazing activities and enjoying it with your friends will be up to the weather because if it raining we might be doing less games. If it sunny is will be just a awesome time spending at the island and enjoying. I hope the 4 days that we are there it would just be beautiful and sunny.

Camp Benzon sounds awesome and I can't wait to be there.

RWC Final 2011.

Rugby World Cup Final 2011!! Who would thought these 2 top rugby teams would make it to the Grand Final by having a long journey against 20 other teams. They were going to battle for the shiny golden cup... the William Webb Elise. This game was located in a Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand called Eden Park. Do you have any ideas who were the 2 teams in the Grand? Well let me tell you.... it was the hard breaking team France, and the mighty All Blacks.

The New Zealand side were ready to sing their National Anthem to the crowd and to the whole country of NZ. They were standing tall and proud because they wanted to do it for their supporters and for their family. It was a beautiful National Anthem because the All Blacks fans were singing together with the team. After a few minutes it was time for France to sing their National Anthem and they did the same thing the All Blacks did.


It was time for one of the best event of the games. Do you know what this event this is? It is called the HAKA and the All Blacks were going to perform their haka called the Kappa O Pango. As they were performing it, they did it with pride and with confidant and I think the best player that performed the haka best was Piri Weepu. While the All Blacks were doing the haka the French team were holding hands and moving up on the All Blacks. I thought what they were doing was a tradition thing.


The crowd was going WILD because it was time for the best thing the fans came to watch at Eden Park, the kick off. It was the All Blacks job to start off the Grand Final of RWC 2011, and it was Arron Cruden that had to kick off. As they kicked it the French team were giving it all they had because they wanted to travel home with the golden cup. It was a battle to the end against these two awesome rugby team that just wanted 1 thing they came after.


Suddenly the Stadium was just to wild because on the 15 minute the prop from the All Blacks Tony Woodcock just scored against the French team. They got that try by a tremendous line out from Kevin Mealamu just threw to Brand Thorn and from Thorn to Woodcock.

1 minute remaining the All Blacks fans were just starting to nail bite because they all thought the mighty AB were going to lose. As the time started to lesser and lesser the All Blacks fans were cheering because they knew New Zealand is going to take this comp out. As the final whistle blew the All Blacks were just happy and amazed that they won the cup.

Who wouldn't have thought the All Blacks had won by just 1 point.

France v Tonga.




There was a awesome clash against Tonga and France on the 1st of October in the 2011 Rugby World Cup and was located in Wellington. Did you watch this clash? Well let me tell you I really enjoyed watching it with my friends.

As the two teams came walking through the tunnel they were prepared to sing their National Anthem. When Tonga was singing their National Anthem they were standing tall and proud because they wanted to do it for their country and for their supporters. After a few minutes it was time for France to sing their National Anthem. As they were singing it they did the same thing as Tonga did, standing tall and proud, and doing it for their supporter, and for their country.

It was time for one of the best thing of the game, and Tonga were getting ready to perform it with pride. Do you have any ideas what the Tongan team were going to do? Well they were going to do the HAKA!! and the Tongan haka is called the Sipi Tau. The hooker for Tonga Aleki Lutui was the person who was leading the Sipi Tau. When it was time for them to do the actions the Tongan supporters were going loud and wild. The players were showing confidant and pride as they were doing the haka.

As the France team were standing in their position their first five were getting ready to kick off because the game was about to start. When they kicked it off the Tongan players were running so hard to try scoring a try but the French defence was on fire. It was a exciting match watching France and Tonga to see which team was going to score first. It was a battle to the end against these two awesome teams.

n the 30th minute the first five for Tonga Kurt Morath kicked it to the right side winger Sukanaivalu Hufanga and he catches the ball and went for the try. While Hufanger was going for the try there was a France player Julien Bonnaire ready to tackle Him but sadly he missed the tackle and the Hufanger was on his way to score in the corner. When the winger got that try the supporters were very happy and the coach as well.

On the 79 minutes the forward pack for France just got over the line, but it was to late because Tonga was still leading. When the game was finish Tonga got the victory over France 19 - 14 and the coach was very proud of them because Tonga beat France in Rugby World Cup history.

I didn't think Tonga will win over France.

Warriors Getting Ready Play Manly Sea Eagles In The Grand Final.


There is going to be a clash happening on the 2nd of October in ANZ Stadium in Sydney. Do you know what is going to happen? well let me tell you, the mighty Warriors are playing against the fierce Manly Sea Eagles in the Grand Final and can't wait to watch the game. It is going to a battle to the end against these two awesome rugby league teams.
My favourite player for the Warriors is Krisnan Inu because he is a very awesome player to watch in solid action. What Krisnan Inu does the best when he plays is scoring and setting up tries for his team mates. Who's your favourite player? I can't wait to see Krisnan Inu play hard for his team.
Which team do you think is going to score first, warriors or Manly? Well I think it is going to be the Warriors. The first person for the Warriors to get the score is... Krisnan Inu and he is going to get it by Shawn Johnson kicking it up in the air. I think from Manly Jamey lion is going to pick up the first try for his team.
I just hope that the Warriors take out the Grand Final. I just support Warriors for the Grand Final, but my favourite team for NRL was Broncos but they are already eliminated out of the comp. Who do you think is going to take it out?
GO WARRIORS!!! I BELIEVE IN YOU!!!!!

Samoa's Story Behind The Flag.

Have you ever wondered about the story behind the Samoan flag, I am going to explain it to you about it. The red represents courage. The blue stands for freedom and the white represents purity. The stars on the Samoan flag symbolize the moonlight, and the colours date back to the 19th century. The stars represents 5 different places and that is Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta and Epsilon.

Badminton Story..




BADMINTON!, a game to be interested in!! Have you ever played Badminton before? well let me tell you, you can enjoy badminton with your friends or family.
Badminton is always about skills and having fun. Having to know all the skills of badminton is much easier for you to play. One of the main trick hits for the game is are backhand and a forehand. You can only use a backhand when the shuttle is on the left side, and a forehand is when you hit the shuttle on the right side.
Ready to test our badminton skills knowledge I was excited because I couldn't wait to play. When I was ready to practise I said to Starford that I could do it. As soon as I tried to hit the shuttle I missed and I was starting to struggle, struggle, struggle, struggle.
It was time for us to play the real game of badminton. We had to divied up into two even teams so we can have a brilliant game. As soon as I got on the courts my partner was Crusader and he was really talented. As my partner served the shuttle Crusader and I were waiting for our oppoinment Kitiona and Ahsin to hit it back to us. Waiting for the shuttle as it showed up in the air I shouted “mine” as I ran to hit it. I missed that shot because I thought the shuttle was coming towards my racket but it was coming on the side of me, it was time for me to do a backhand hit but I was to late and to slow to hit it so I walked away from the courts and went to the back of the line because I was out.
My goal was to try to hit the shuttle on time. I didn’t achieve my goal but I think next time I can achieve it. Do you have a goal for badminton?

I hope I could be a master badminton player next time!!

New Zealand vs Tonga.



Tonight there is going to be a exciting ceremony in Eden Park for the opening of the World Cup. After the opening there is going to be a rugby game and it is going to be interesting because Tonga and New Zealand is going to battle against each other. If you haven’t been to a rugby ceremony I think you a missing out on a huge opportunity of going there.

I can’t wait until the game because supporting my team is one of my favourite things. I re am prepared to watch the game with my friends and family and support Tonga. I hope they can have a fun time playing rugby and playing fair. Are you ready to support your team?

My favourite player that plays for Tonga is Hufanga because he is so talented. The position he plays in center and he plays very good in that standing. I like him because he is always staying focus on the game. The exciting thing of watching this guy play is when he does interception. Do you have a favourite player for each team?

I hope I could just be like Hufanga!!!

Story Behind The Argentina Flag.

Just imagine how nice it would be spending your time in the beautiful place of Argentina. I am going to tell you about the story behind their flag. The sun means the Sun of May, that is to say the bright sun in the sky.The blue lines represents parting to reveal the white clouds in the air. Parting to reveal the white clouds sounds interesting to me because it reminds me I would enjoy swimming in the wonderful calm water at the beach in Summer time.

T3 W1

This term is going to be AMAZING!!. I was so amazed when I realized our theme is KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE BALL witch meant, we are learning about the World Cup. Do you enjoy learning about it?.
I think my favorite thing of studding about this terms topic is, learning about different countries that I don’t really much. Studding about different countries is really awesome, because I will rather learn about then just learning about the country I come from. Do you like learning about different places? Well I do.
I think I got goals that I can achieve. I think I got 2 goals for this term, 1 is to focus, 2 is to not side line chat when the teacher is talking. Do you got couples of goals for term 3?.
I am looking forward to have a great term with my teacher. Rugby is another thing I’m looking forward to because that is one of my best school sports. I am looking forward to rugby because in September we are having Auckland Champs tournament.

Kingston, Samuela, Rugby Leauge Story.


As we arrived at the courts outside the office, we were excited because two of the junior Warriors came to teach us some basic skills of rugby league. The first thing they did was to introduce their names to us. One of the players were called Siua and the other called Saliva.
After they told us their names we were ready to play a very awesome game called ball Tiggy. We had to spit into two different even teams so we could have a brilliant game. The teams were blue and green, do you think which team we were in? The team we were in was blue, if you guess blue you a absolutely correct!!
Force back was the next game we played. I didn’t understand what game we were playing because they called it kick tennis and I was confused. Siua explain how to play kick tennis so I thought the we are going to play is Force back. As we played force back James and I really enjoyed playing it.
I wish the Junior Warriors could come back again!!!!

Canada Day Celebration..


Today is a spacial day for Mr Barks and Mrs Barks because for their country it is Canada day. It is a very important day because July the 1st, 1867 was the time that Canada became its own country. Today in Canada there is going to be a huge celebration about Canada day and I think it’s going to be awesome. The name Canada came from a Indian word called kanata and after that they started to call their country Canada and that became its name. Have you been to Canada? I haven’t, but learning about Canada and celebrating Canada is really cool because learning about it has been fun. The thing I like about Canada is learning about the wildlife. What is your favorite thing about Canada?
I wish we could learn more about the wonderful country called Canada!!!!

Spending My Day At The Pools


Starting with a huge rain on Saturday morning was pretty terrible to start my nice day out. My cousin and I were planning to head out to the pools and have a nice time there. Unfortunately we couldn't go because suddenly the rain started to pour down again. Waiting for a come back from the sun all we did was clean our room!. As soon as we finished cleaning, the beautiful yellow sun raised up in the air like a colourful hot air balloon. We were so exciting because we were ready to hit the pools. Getting ready to do a huge bomb in the pools was very awesome because I like swimming in the cold swimming pools. As I got there the first thing I did was I went to pay myself and then walk over to the boys changing rooms. When we were ready my cousin and I went to have a nice shower before we go for a swim. The time has come as I was ready to do a bomb in the pool. As I bomb in the first thing I did with my cousin was having a race to the other side of the pool. I felt board staying in the inside pool so I raced out to the slide and kind of spent my time there with some of my friends I met there. I wish some time in the weekend I could go back to the pools with my cousin and spend our time there having fun. You should check out the pools some day!.

My Value Caring


Do you think you can see the value caring. That is the value I am studying this term.Do think you know what caring looks like?To me caring is helping people that really needs so much help..Is caring important to you?.I think caring is important because when you help people, it just a great thing to do.Do you think you have been caring to other people so far?.

To me I think that caring feels like it so happy because it helped someone that was hurt and he really needed such help.In a different way I think caring feels like,helping other people around your community.Caring helps us a lot because it helps us to succeed and that is really helpful.

I think that how caring sounds like is a bit tough but I am going to try my best because I think I can do it. Caring sounds like people cheering for other people because they were caring to each other around their community area.Caring for other people around your area that are really hurt is really helpful thing, because it helps them to success and that is very good.Do you want people to success.

My Reflection 2010


What I enjoyed most being in year 5 is going to the rugby trips. I really like it because you hang around with your friends for long. The thing I enjoyed learning the most is maths because I really like doing fraction with Miss King.
I wish i could have done more of doing blog post because I like going on my friends blog and commenting them. I think I could work harder on writing because sometimes I don’t even make sence on my writing. My best memories was when I went to Eden Park to see the famous rugby Leauge players and it was cool. I got to see the Kiwis Kangaroos, England and Babua.
My goal for next year is to be good at Maths because sometimes I get my Maths wrong
