New Zealand Infomation.

You could find my county, New Zealand in the Pacific Ocean. Polynesians settled NZ in 1250 - 1300 and Europeans first made contact in 1642. In 1840 the Treaty of Waitangi was signed between the Maori and British people. Maori are the largest minority, followed by Asians and non - Maori Polynesians. The Maori name of New Zealand is Aotearoa which translates to ‘The Land of the Long White Cloud’.
There are three main Islands named, the North Island, South Island and Stewart Island. New Zealand also has Niue, Tokelau and the cook Islands apart of it’s realm. The official languages in New Zealand are English, Te Reo Maori and New Zealand Sign language. In the North Island of New Zealand is the largest populated city called Auckland. The four largest cities are Auckland (with one-third of the country's population), Christchurch, Wellington and Hamilton.

Room 16 on One News

I was really excited because a lady named Kim came to our class and said that we were going to be on T.V! Suddenly our whole class started to try and look pretty in front of the camera, just like me. We had to be very quiet so that Kim could talk about Pt England School having Netbooks. Here is a video of us on One News and you can see Room 16 working very quietly. I felt really stink about the other schools not having Netbooks, but if I were to be the owner of the Netbooks I would help the poor schools get them so that they would have fun like we are right now. Have a great time watching us on T.V and you can leave a comment if you would like to!!

The Life Education Caravan.

On Monday the 8th of August we went to the Life Education caravan.We first had to take off our shoes then we had to line up from biggest to smallest so that meant the biggest had to sit at the back and the smallest at the front. Room 16 was waiting for a while so that Harold the Giraffe could come out and say hello. When he came out and told Lynn that he had to do Homework he had to do his homework. When she was reading his Homework Harold stared behind the paper and started to look at Elizabeth and then Lynn said’’ Harold why are looking at that girl’’ and he said ‘’ I want her to be my girlfriend’’ and then everyone was laughing. So Harold went inside his room and we had to do his Homework but we only did three or two tasks for him. The first thing we did was learning about the body parts . Then the body systems. So there were lots to do then. Then we went to go back to class it was very cool and funny when you go there you have to put up your hand when you want to say something.

On the first day of school I was so happy to see all my friends and Mr Somerville. Our new topic was called’’ KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE BALL’’ that is an awesome name for our new topic. Lots of the teachers were dressed up as them self's but with rugby t-shirt. They all looked awesome and funny that I thought the people were going to laugh but they didn't. Mr Jacobson was always shouting out ‘’ IRELAND’’ like about 6 times. We watched about a couple of videos and the others were acting. My favourite highlight was when they gave out tickets so you could get some food Lola had gotten one but not me. That’s the sad part but I really had a great time.


On a Sunday morning I went to church. After that we went to my Nana’s to have lunch my cousin Tamika came with us. The first thing we went to do was that we ate some lunch. We had little pies that are called’’ party pies’’ and toasties with cheese and ham and some spaghetti toasties. Next my brother went to Sylvia Park to change 3 of his PS3 games to a NARUTO game. While he was there me and my sister and cousin went up stairs and played fashion show. My cousin had to give me and my sister some close that we could put on in my sisters room. We tried lots of clothes on but then we had it me and my sister were wearing short shorts and cool as t-shirts. Then we had to take it off and put on our normal clothes and go home. That was a really fun time.
