Our Hokey Pokey Invention


Have you ever wondered what hokey pokey and lava have in common Well I do. On the 25th of May we made hokey pokey because Mr Hunia wanted to show us how lava reacts, after it has come out of the volcano.
The Making Of It....

Hmmmm!I could smell the sensational sweet sugar and golden syrup dissolving making a caramel colour . It was like, I was in another dimension in-in candy land! As the sugar and golden syrup bubbled away a froth of white baking soda had been put in making chemical reactions! When he had finished the hokey pokey it was like a viscous liquid.... which is just like lava.


As the frothy foamy Hokey pokey mixture was smothered on the tray, we waited anxiously for it to cool. Once it was hard and brittle it like tough caramel toffee ready to be eaten.

The Tasting Time...

As we ate it, a lump of BAKING SODA had filled my mouth making me run to the bin and spitting it out like I was spewing . I was wondering WHY that had happened, WHY!! I anxiously finished the rest hoping that there would NOT be another dump of baking soda ready to fly into my mouth... and there wasn't. I finally took my last gulp.


At the end of that fantastic day of learning and making I think that it had all worked out ALRIGHT! Nothing had turned out wrong ( only the hokey pokey ) and I think that, that is an end of a GREAT morning!! ( kind of )

What had Ever Happened?


Many, many years ago the Pink and White Terraces, the eighth wanderer of our natural world had laid peacefully. Getting attention from everyone around the world.


The beautiful crystal hot bathing water shined in the Pink Terraces while the hot air would make your face go RED!!!! The white terraces had also had the crystallized hot bathing water ready for the plunge of tourists from around the world.

People from all around the world had came to see it for exactly 10 POUNDS!!!!! Amazing isn't it? Well as I said people from all around the world had came to see the Pink and White Terraces to bath, paint and be astonished by the beauty of it but what had ever happened to the Pink and White Terraces?

Well here is your answer!!!

It had all began back in 1886, the 10Th of June at 2.30 am. The three peeks, Tarawera, Whanga and Ruawahia where blasting triple columns of smoke and ash thousands of meters out into the SKY! Suddenly a blast of lava, volcanic lightning had created a beautiful scene of fireworks! But sadly had destroyed the Pink and White Terraces!!!

If you think that you have a different answer then leave me a comment !

My Presentation

Kia ora, Talofa Lava and Malo e lelei. Recently I have been reading an adventures and tragic book called CRASH! written by William Taylor a New Zealand author. Many, many of his books a very, very interesting but I think this story is just right. Crash has four main characters in this story, Poddy, Jack the brother , George the Dad and Sue the Mother.

This story is about Poddy a 4 year old boy that has Down Syndrome and saved the lives of 2 people. When he, Jack and George had set of to the football game their Mother had reminded them to not go up the hill because the farmer had been letting the herd of cows go and have a little roam, but they did. Then suddenly they had CRASH! Badly they had tumbled down the hill and crash landed in the meadow bank. Jack and George had serious injuries but Poddy didn't.

Once Poddy had known that he had been in a car crash he decided to go and get help.

Making himself up the road he looks back and says" I go get help, I go get help!" very loudly knowing that his Dad and Brother would not answer. After a long time roaming in the darkness he finally gets help from two lady's called Marion and Liz. They quickly wrap him around a blanket and gets in the car to see if there was a telephone near by because their cellphone had no service. Suddenly they had spotted one. They had rang the ambulance and the police station. Once they had all arrived his teacher who teaches him scouts tells Sue the big news. They quickly drive over and saw Poddy just standing there being guarding by Marion and Liz.

If you would like to now the rest of the story you can go to our K.P.E blog and look it up.
I think i would recommend this book to 10 to 13 year olds because it can tell them that because you can't do things that are hard for you to never give up or that maybe, just maybe you can prove yourself that you can do mostly anything.

No reira, tena katou, tena katou, tena katou ka toa.

To My Friends!

My friends Selena, Seini-Mino, Mubasshira, Angela and Toreka are the best friends that I have ever had. From bad times to good times we had made it through. From when we were all little to now we have known that our friendship will still be here, at Pt England. From the fights that we have had and the hating that we think of each other we will always know that deep down in our hearts we will always be friends. From the tragic things that has been happening in the pacific, to our families we now that our friendship will protect and cure it. To me I think that our friendship is so strong that nothing will tear us a part ( only when we go to different intermediates ) But all of us now that our friendship doesn't go first, God does!

We will try and do anything to keep it going but we now that sometimes it is impossible. "We have to move on " my Mum says but I will always disagree. Even though that we have tried our hardest I think that it was that time when we have to move on.

Down deep inside of me I just now that this will be the last year that we spend together from everything that I had said up above. The tears will slowly come down our faces as we take the last hug, and the last time that we spend together! Then slowly we walk away from each other remembering those joyful times, that will never escape from our heads. Then the final wave will appear and the tear!

Taking a deep breath we will now that our friendship will still be in our hearts! Remembering Selena, Seini-Mino, Mubasshira, Angela and Toreka.

Anyways thank you once again Mrs burt, you are a really great teacher, to everyone!
What can we do without you!

Never Let You Go!


"Never let You Go" is a song that is sang by Justin Bieber. Out of all the other songs
in the world this is my favourite one. "Never let You Go" is a type of song to
sing, dance and mostly to listen to by you! Justin Bieber is also my favourite
singer. He has so many songs that he has sang that you thing
that is more better then this one for e.g Baby.

"Never let You Go" has a chorus that sounds just like "Forever" sang by a different artist called Chris Brown. After the abuse that he had done to Rihanna I think that he isn't important anymore. Anyways my favourite thing about this song is the melody in it.

It is so great that it has even got my friend under the spell.
Well anyways "Never let You Go" is my favourite song.
What about you! Let me now by commenting
on this post.
