This week I was practicing solving my addition and subtraction problems by adding and subtracting tens and ones.

30 + 40
8 + 6 = 14
40 + 10 + 4 = 54

First time taking my netbook home

No one was more excited taking there net book home as me. When we arrived home I rushed straight in to the house to see if my net book worked. Turning my net book on very excited. YES! it works in the kitchen. But not any where else in the house.


My experience in the water so far I have improved on my kicking in the water, and trying to control my breathing in the water. What I enjoyed most was free time so I can practice on my breathing and floating excises.

The feast of SPX

Our school, Saint Pius X had a mass on Friday. To celebrate the feast day of our patron Saint, St Pius X. I felt very special to apart of this special mass. I was doing the first reading. The opening hymn began, everyone sang. I fiddled with my fingers, I shock my foot. I changed position as I stood. It was getting closer to my turn to read. Sione Toa just finished his reading. He walked down and I walked up. We bowed together. My reading started “A reading from the book” and it went on. Not very long. It was coming to the end of my reading.
“The word of the Lord” I was going to sit down what a relief. The school carried on with the talent show. But I was so proud myself.

Holiday Fun

On the first Sunday of the holidays so many thoughts came to my head. Is the holidays going to be boring or amazing. Mum said if you want to, you can go to the movies with your cousins. Monday went past fast and Tuesday was just around the corner. I had butterfly's in my stomach. I was so overwhelmed I couldn't sleep properly that Monday night tossing and turning. I woke up movie time I said loudly, As I got ready.

In the car we go and out of the house. We are finally here Sylvia park. My cousins will meet me there at Hoyts. I and my cousins were very eager to watch cars2. As we waited we all walked around Sylvia park Rubes, jay jays says my cousins and all sorts of places. 3.30pm is when the movie starts 2.30pm back to Hoyts we go. Ready to go into the movie theater. When the movie started we stared eating the pop corn.Buttery and mushy.

My highlight was when Lightning McQueen went back to Radiator Springs to speed his time with his best friend Mater. The seats right in the front are not comfortable to sit in. After a while the movie was over out we went and my little cousin wanted to go to the toilet so we did. When we came out of Sylvia park we went home.

My highlight at swimming.

As I steeped in to the pool, I could feel goosebumps running up and down my leg's and hands. It was a bit cold warm for me. But everyone was enjoying the warmth of the water and them self's.My highlight was swimming across, to one side and back because we all swam as a group. When Mr Burton and Mrs Tui were talking I and Jessica were doing bombs in the pool. It got to the end of our swimming lesson. So as we got out of the pool you can feel the breeze coming from the out side. Well here we go I say out of the tent it was freezing cold. Time to change.
