Just Work hard - This is me Cover

This is me Cover - Just work hard.
Verse 1
I’m in my class trying to focus,
All around me, people are chitter chattering.
I’ve learnt to stay away from those students,
Stay away I say, Distraction Isn't the way,

But just because they are chattering,
Doesn’t mean that I can do the same.
For we are outstanding.

When the problem solvings are too hard,
I’m gonna use my brain, I’m gonna work it out
We are smart, We are clever, We are who we’re meant to be.
This is me!
Homework, here I come,
I’m gonna finish it off properly.
I will strive to succeed, I make lots of mistakes.
This is Me!

Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh

Verse 2
Another round of homework hits my brain.
We’ll figure it out, cause today laziness just won’t sink in.
We are finishing off our projects and posting it on our blogs.
We are bloggers! Yeah that’s our specialties ( That’s our specialties).

But, Term 1 is close to finishing, We have to try our best today
For we are outstanding.

When there’s too much work to finish off
I’m gonna work hard to succeed.
I am smart, I am clever I am who I’m meant to be
This is me!
Homework, here I come,
I’m gonna finish it off properly.
I will strive to succeed, I make lots of mistakes.
This is me!

My new Chocolate wrapper ?

Walt: Write a opinion piece.

Task Description: Earlier we had to taste chocolate. I had Peppermint chocolate (EEWW), That means I had to create a new wrapper for the chocolate I tasted. Above you will see what I have created. Mr Goodwin did a great job for making this fun.


Walt: Write a opinion piece.

This product reminded me of eating chocolate, but with toothpaste.

This product is made by Cadbury. The name of the chocolate is Peppermint. The Cadbury product is with milk chocolate and mint injected in the middle of each square.

As soon as I picked up the chocolate, I could already smell the mint trying to explode out of the milk chocolate. My first thought when I bit into the chocolate was okay, then my taste buds touched the mint. It felt like I was brushing my teeth with chocolate! This was not a great mix. Basically, what I’m trying to say is it tasted like chocolate toothpaste.

How you can make your product better is if you calm down with the peppermint or you could just put no filling at all. Another advice to help your product boost is to maybe switch milk chocolate to dark chocolate. So Cadbury, if you’re reading this, here’s some advice and PLEASE sponsor me.

To all the people who haven’t tasted Peppermint chocolate, I would not recommend this chocolate for you. The mint and the milk chocolate just doesn’t taste and mix well together. However Cadbury, if you take my advice, I promise you this chocolate will be the number one selling chocolate in New Zealand.

Task Description: Being a food critic? We were finally able to do some writing(YES!!). We ate some mystery chocolate that we may or may not have had before (I have had this chocolate before). We had to use our senses. The chocolate I had was Peppermint, it was not the best. This is my review on Cadbury's Peppermint Chocolate. Cadbury I'm sorry for the complaints but please sponsor me!
I hope you learnt something new from this blog post!

Dear Mr Goodwin ( Thank you Letter)

WALT: Structure a thank you note.
Walt: Show Gratitude.
Room 7
Pt England School
14 March, 2018

Dear Mr Goodwin,

I am writing a letter to you because I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for organising this camp all by yourself, for this being your first time I think you did amazing. You did a great job of making everyone have fun. I did not see a single frown at Camp because that’s how fun every year 5&6 student had.

One of my highlights was the food. Not only was it the food but I liked how we had to work as a team to get our meals. While we were eating our food, I also liked how some people were very vulnerable and brave enough to go up in the front and sing a song to entertain us. The best thing was if you got up to sing you get points for your group.

My other highlight is Kayaking with Mr Burt. It was so fun and tiring because it was the first activity for our group. Our group was Rapid Recyclers A.K.A the best group. First I was in a double kayak with Deborah just for a warm-up then I was ready to be by myself. I think I was as good as my older brother when he was a yr 5&6 maybe even better. Hehe! Anyways Kayaking was Fantastic.

Once again just thank you for sorting out camp. Without you and the other teachers this wouldn’t be possible. This was my favourite camp so far. You did a great job for this being your first time. Did you also know your an amazing Team leader, Maybe even better than Mr Somerville, Who knows? We are all very thankful for you, Mr Goodwin. Keep doing what you always do because it puts a smile on my face and on other faces too.

Yours Sincerely,


Task Description: If you have seen my other Thank you Letter, this is another one. I wish I could do a billion more of these because lots of people participated in helping the camp happen. Unfortunately I don't have enough time. This is dedicated to Mr Goodwin my teacher. Enjoy!

Room 7
Pt England School
12 March, 2018

Dear Miss Haare,

Thank you for entertaining us during breakfast, Dinner and Most of all the camp concert. Another thing to thank you is for supervising us at the pools everyday. We had a good time during Camp concert mostly because of your challenges you have planned for everyone. We are very thankful that you were there for us.

One of my highlights from camp was Sliding games with Mr Somerville. I enjoyed it because we got to do some games but also worked as a team. We also got some lollies! The best thing was Slip-n-Slide because we had fun while washing our clothes with washing liquid and water.

Another highlight was staying up late with eden in our tent. It was very fun and scary because Mr Somerville and Chris (Rangimaria dad) were right next to us talking to each other. Me and Eden were on the whisper zone which was hard for us because we were sneaking chocolates in our mouths.

Once again thank you for making up some games for camp concert especially the Bum aerobics, that was brilliant. A big thank you for helping the Rapid Recyclers dance become more amazing. You have awesome dancing skills. We thank you for taking some time off so you can help us on camp.

Yours Sincerely


Task Description: We just finished Camp! We didn't want to do a recount so we are doing a Thank You Letter. This is dedicated to Haare, because she did a lot of things for camp. Haare is a helper at Pt England School, She is very special to all of us at PES. Thank You Miss Haare for Helping organising this Camp.

Angire the Pokemon

WALT: reflect on the world around us.

Task Description: At my school Pokemon cards are very popular. If you don't what a Pokemon card is,  it is at the bottom of this blog post. Anyways, because these cards are very popular for us, our teacher thought that we should create our own Pokemon cards. I thought that was a great idea. We are also thinking of some rules so that when we play with the Pokemon cards it is a fair game.

All about my group

Walt: follow instructions and present work to a high standard.

Task Description: On our amazing Team 4 site I am in the Imacs reading group.We had to write about what is a Imac. The 2 main focuses for me were What is an Imac and What does it have to do with my learning. Hopefully by the end of this presentation you have learnt a lot about Imacs.

Meet Shelly, my new friend

Walt: Structure a recount.

This is my Eggsperience with my new friend.  I made a new friend today,a egg friend.Do you have a egg friend?

Mr Goodwin reached his hand into the cupboard and grabbed out three tray of eggs and two packets of vivids. “Please don’t tell me we are doing another mission” I said anxiously and confused,Mr Goodwin told us we are going to be making a little friend. Mr Goodwin showed us how we were going to make our little friend. He drew a little cartoon face on his egg, Marika named him Bob, We were all laughing until Mr Goodwin told us to ‘stop’. Now it’s our turn to try it out. The face of my little friend wasn’t on ‘fleek’ but it was good enough, All there was left to do was name her, Shelly is the perfect name.

Now it was time to take Shelly on a tour around the school. As we were cradling our egg friends, we lined up. We strolled down the court and stopped near the breeze, Loseti was an irresponsible friend and put his egg in is pocket. “Gasp”, I know what you’re thinking,I’m disgusted or something like that. After all that Drama happened we continued walking to the Park. Finally we made it to the park!

Me, Marika, Jahzara and Levonah were the 2nd ones to take a photo with our egg mate. “Sit up for your photo Shelly’ I whispered so no-one can hear. “ You have to go through obstacle course in the playground” Mr Goodwin shouted,  I carefully ran up the ladder and ran past the monkey bars. I was feeling nervous because I thought I was gonna have butter fingers and drop shelly. Luckily I didn’t drop her unlike some other people.

Overall It was a fun experience. I made a new friend and supervised Shelly.  If I was a teacher I would definitely  do this with my class.

Photos below! This is Shelly

Task Description: This writing is a recount. We had to do a challenge where we had to go through the obstacle courses but we have look after our eggs. This was a difficult task. This was like a training for looking after a baby.

How the Army says the Time.

Walt: Understand how to read the 24 hour time.

Task Description: The 24 hour time is what we were learning about. We had to convert the 24 hour time into the digital time and the written form. The confusing thing about this is that you don't know if the 24 hour time is on the am clock or the pm time. Did you know that the army uses the 24 hour time instead of the digital and the written form?
