The Year six camp


Last week the year six student went to Kawau Island for our camp and the best thing I liked was swimming and bombing off the pongtoon. It feels like you a flying when you jump off.

Tui at camp Benzon

On camp last week my favorite thing was jamping off the pontoon. At first I was scared because I didn't know that I would be able to float. I forgot I had a life jacket on. Then it was really fun and wanted to do it again and again.

The Monarch Butterfly



A butterflies lays it egg under a leaf. The egg hatches between three and twelve days later.
When an egg hatches the caterpillar will start to eat its own egg. They will eat it because
it has got all of the goodness in side of it.

Once the baby caterpillar has finished eating the goodness of the egg, it will eat milk weed
leaves for it food. As the caterpillar keeps on eating, it will get fat.

Now the caterpillar is full, ready and fat it will make a chrysalis on a swan plant. The caterpillar has to hang it self up side down. Slowly after that, the chrysalis will start to form.

When the caterpillar is nearly transformed, the chrysalis turns black. After two weeks a bright and beautiful butterfly emerges into the world.

Monarch Butterfly



When a mother butterfly lays her eggs she finds a milk weed leaf and lays her egg under the leaf.
Then a few days latter the baby caterpillar chew its way out and returns its way back and eats its egg,it has good energy for that baby Caterpillar.

The baby caterpillar eats and eats ,the food that the caterpillar eats is milk weed the caterpillar gets fat he forms into a chrysalis. As the fat caterpillar is in there, he gets lots of nice colours.

An awesome experience happened when a Butterfly comes out and sees the world for the first time
his blood pumping down his wings. Fly away butterfly fly away fly fly away

On Tuseday 2nd november 2010 30 kids from our school went to eden park for are Rugby legue

Meeting my NRL Idols at the Four Nations Fans Day


Did you know that yesterday at Eden park we got to meet our favourite NRL players? I was so excited and was looking forward to meeting Todd Carney and lots of other NRL players. I was also dying to see Sam Burgess, Brent Morris, Darren Lockyer and Cameron Smith. As we were playing the games I wanted the Kiwis and the Aussie players to tell us what to do on the field. I was geting thirsty during the games.

After our games, Starford and I were looking out for Benji Marshall, Sam Burgess, Lote Tuquiri, Shaun Kenny-Dowall and Cameron Smith to get their autographs and we found them. I was so excited that it felt like I had just opened up a Christmas present.

It was heaps of fun at Eden park and I know that I was one of the luckiest kids in the world to be there. Thanks Miss Va'afusuaga for choosing me to go and meet my favourite league players.

The Four Nations Fans Day



To my absolute amazement I saw my favourite NRL players in the world and their names are Darren Lockyer and Sam Burgess. Sam Burgess is tall! I was also looking forward to getting Benji Marshall's autograph.

We went there to go and have some fun and learn new games to play. When we played four-hand touch, Kurt Gidley was on my team but he was signing autographs while I had to defend this boy who got through me to score a try because Kurt was too busy giving out his autograph. I wish he wasn't so he could help save the try.

I was earnestly looking hard for Darren Lockyer but he was no where to be found and I heard that he was up in the stadium signing autographs.

I will remember this day for a long time.

The Four Nations Rugby League Fans Day

Jumping up and down I was so excited to go to the Four Nations Fans Day at the famous Eden Park to meet our favourite league players. My favourite player is the man, Benji Marshall. He is the best and he's my hero in league!

When we got there we saw lots of different schools and all of the rugby league players in the Kiwis, Australian, English and Papua New Guinea teams. As we took our seats, I was looking out for Benji to get his autograph, but I couldn't find him. I was gutted not to see him.

Our first drill of the day was bull rush with the ball. It was fun because we got to play with some of the Papua New Guinea players.

Our next drill was four hand touch backyard league. It was so funny because the league players were tackling us on the ground for a laugh and they were acting like bullies but they were only kidding. After that we went to get some more autographs from other players. I was quite sad that I didn't get my favourite league player's autograph.

So before we went back to school we did the haka in front of everyone so could get tickets to the Kiwis and Aussie games. After our haka we were told that we had the best haka and won some free tickets. Woo hoo!

Soon afterwards, we went to the top of the stadium to get some free lunch and water. After eating our lunch we started to pack up to go back to school.

At Eden Park, we had so much fun and I would love to do again next time. I hope there'll be a next time!
