Camp Highlights At Keswick.

Sesalina and me taking a photo with the sheep.

The Agradom was one of my favourite highlights. The reason why I liked the Agradom was because as the instructor was talking to us his helper let out sheep one by one on each sides. We saw at least 19 different sheep on the stage and at least 3 with horns. It was pretty awesome seeing all the sheep's going to there actual spot because there were stairs which they had to stand on. After that the instructor blew the whistle to get the 3 dogs attention they ran fast on to the stage while the instructor was opening this cupboard. While he was opening it we saw a massive cow walking on to the stage, the instructor picked a few people to hop on the stage and milk the cow. From our school Waata and Max went on the stage and tried to milk the cows, it was so funny because there was a little girl that got sprayed in the face with the milk from the cow.

Then he picked a couple of people to hold the bottles of milk from the cow and drink it, nah I was joking the man opened the door and all the baby lambs started running to the people who were holding the bottles and started feeding them. They were so cute. It was finished and we could go on the stage to see the sheep. I went to a sheep that looked like it had dreadlocks on it but with Justin Biebers style of hair. After that I went to a white sheep that had fur like a nice soft carpet, it felt so soft that I wanted to sleep on it. Next I took a photo with one that had horns in the shape of a spiral, there horns felt like big, rough dog bones. And that was the best highlight that I had at camp this year.

My Net book Reflection For 2013

What special thing have you learnt from your teacher this year?
The thing that I have learnt from my teacher this year was having a girl teacher because I haven't had one for ages, also because she has made me a better person during the years have gone by because she knows the things that has happened in my life and she helps me to keep going forward.

What significant thing have you learnt all by yourself?
I learnt that arguing with your friends doesn't change anything it just makes you stupid. I also learnt how to use blocks to solve my maths problems.

This year has been a really good year. I have learnt a lot of things to do with maths and how I can take numbers from numbers to make a bigger number. And in writing I learnt about different people like Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King. I have had a really good experience here and hope the rest of the school will as well.

For me I think that Net books are really good to use because when we need help we can just type it up on our internet so called as 'Wairehe' to connect with it. I have had my Net book for 3 years now and I haven't really done that much damage to it, but I will still be having it because I am going to Tamaki College.

Farewell To P.t England School.

I would like to say a farewell to my school because this is my last week being at P.t England and then I'm off to college next year. I have been at P.t England for 8 long years and leaving P.t England is like leaving my family behind to move on to a better life. I am really going to miss P.t England and all the teachers who have been teaching me during my years.

I also want to say to the year 7 prefects for next year that you will keep P.t England still standing and the little kids happy and safe as we have done this year. I know that you prefects are going to be really good prefects and look after our school I wish you guys good luck for next year and have fun and remember the memories that us year 8s and the others before us have done for our school. Good Luck for next year and have fun.

Farewell P.t England and have an awesome year.
Love From Dante Bartlett.

Nelson Mandela Documentry

Nelson Mandela was a man who stopped racism for all the people around the world. The main points about Nelson is how he changed the world for everyone to make it a better place. He even had to spend 27 years in prison just because people believed in him that he could change everything. The white people knew that whatever Nelson planned to do they knew that a lot of people would believe in him so that's why they put him in prison.

Nelson's father died when he was a child and during his years without his father he became a ward of Jongintaba at the great place in Mqhekezweni. He was the first in his family to attend a school and it was while there that the young Rolihlahla was given the name Nelson.

Nelson Mandela was a civil rights leader in South Africa. He fought against apartheid, a system where non-white citizens were segregated from whites and did not have equal rights. He served a good portion of his life in prison for his protests, but became a symbol for his people. Later he would become president of South Africa.

Nelson Mandela died on Thursday at the age of 95. The former President of South Africa left an indelible mark on both his country and the world, becoming an international symbol of the fight against injustice and human rights abuses. He will be remembered in our hearts forever and ever because he was a man that not only cared about his family but also the whole entire world.

Love From Dante Bartlett And P.t England Primary and Intermediate School.

Narrative about the swimming pools.

gif maker Dipping my feet into the water there was a shiver with coldness going through my body. While I was getting in I was watching the rest of the children swimming around. We had an instructor talking to us about the different kinds of swimming moves, there were three types of swimming moves that we had to learn. One of them was the backstroke, I loved doing the backstroke because it was like I was floating through a pool of roses and it felt relaxing. The second move we did was the hand stands, the hand stands were a bit hard because there was a little space where we could do it. It was hard for me because I couldn't really balance myself under the water and I was a bit scared that maybe someone might hit me in the face. The third and last one was the freestyle. It was really easy because it was like doing backstroke but you head in the water and swim forward. And this is my narrative about the swimming pools.
