Soothing Rainbow Colors

This is one of my latest Pic-Lits. Have a look at it.



Lyrics:
Rainbows make a sweet and romantic pattern.
Just like this one which has made a heart.
A heart of colors and is mostly made out of red and blue.
Red because that is the love symbol.
Soothing blended rainbows lead a beautiful heart.

Year 5's Amazing Picnic


"Tringgggg" as the bell went I raced to class. It was a special day for me and all the year 5's. "It's the picnic today, Yaay!" As you all know it was the picnic day and as the bell went all the year 5's had lined up and were waiting anxiously to go to the picnic. We were all going to go down to the reserve. "The weather is looking bad so I think I'll have to change the plan Ms Squires said in a sad mood. "Ohhhhh!!" That was a really bad news for me. I had got shocked.

As soon as the bell went for the end of our interval we quickly lined up and Ms Squires told us the plan. All the excited years 5's are going NOW! Ms Squires said in a mood like it was a thriller film but at the end was a happy mood of Ms Squires. "YES!!!!" Room 15 shouted. I had a blond moment when everyone was screaming and talking to their friends. Firstly we just had played games.

"Thousands of options! soccer, touch, midnight, softball hmm which one should I be in?...." "Ouch" what was that? Oh no that was my tummy hurting. I wasn't able to run. So I just sat in a corner that had luscious trees that was swaying in the wind. A little while later it started to rain. Everyone stopped right away and quickly hurried off to their classes.

"Mmmmh delicious that was the best meal I have had in this year". Cutlery checked, 8 dishes checked. "Oh my gosh how many dishes were their? Who was going to eat all of eat?" I shouted out to my group. "Calm down Mubasshira!!! we're going to eat them and by the way if their is still stuffed left we'll give it to the teachers. Stay calm girl stay calm". Selena said as she gobbled up 2 of my brownies. As she ate it she said "Delicious You should bring some more to school tomorrow if you have some left at home". Their was lots of other things. Ala's Cream puffs, Selena's rice and potato salad with chicken on top, Seini-Mino's Chop Suey, Angela's Piklets and sausages, Toreka's sticky rice, Mmmh that was delicious too and my Brownies and cupcakes. Sticky Rice was awesome, sticky rice with caramel on top. What else could be such a nice treat other than sticky rice. "Munch Munch Munch!" when I gobbled up the sticky rice it was as if I was in a world that had caramel all over. Caramel Trees, caramel rivers, and all sorts of stuff like that. "Cheese" Ms Squires said as she clipped a picture.


As I finished eating all our! group had to finish clean up. "Ohhhhhh". "Can you guys clean everything up all the other tables as well". "Ehh" I groaned to Selena. As we all finished cleaning up our tables were glistening and glinting. Luckily we all finished and went to play before the playing bell was over. "Tringgggg" and the bell was over that minute. "Oh No". It was as if I was never going to get break anytime in my life. I wish we will have another picnic with no rain just happiness and sun.

Celebration Time Come On!!!

Celebration time come on!. It was Saturday 5th December and it was celebration time.We were at school in the afternoon. You might be wondering why were we at school on a Saturday? Well we were at school because we had been celebrating. Celebrating the last day of ROW (Rock Our World ) 11. Not just me who who was celebrating it was the whole Extension class.

"All over and around the world there's a movement wrapped in love, in Looovvvveee". It was our part on screen. Carol Anne was talking to us. First of all Moses did a Mihi ( That is just a introduction ). When it was time for asking the questions and answering back only some people asked it. It was Paulitia, Tanielu, Leoden and Blessing. "Tanielu go on now its your turn" Mrs Tele'a whispered because she didn't want her voice to be heard in the conversation with thousands of people ( exaggerating ). When Tanielu said his answer he also told them that we were going to do a waiata ( Song ). "Takitimu tokomaru hura hupoi..." as we finished singing the waiata. As soon as it was silent in the room Tanielu went up and said "Do you have the beat?".

Well "We've got the beat the mighty row beat it goes ( 1st: Pat your knees twice. 2nd: clap your hands twice. 3rd: click twice. 4th: Clap your hands twice. 5th: Pat your knees once. 6th:Clap once. 7th: click once. 8th: Clap once. 9th: Pat your knees once. 10th: Clap once, high. You have got it!!! ) You do that 2 times.

As we all finished, Carol Anne just said a compliment to us and said bye. When everything was packed up we all went into the staffroom and ate some sausages. "Yum" said my friend. "Ice Cream time!!!" said Mrs Burt. "Yaaay" we all shouted. We all had mini choc bars that Mrs Tele'a had got. "Finished" everybody said in a row like we were all having a race in finishing of ice creams.
Mrs Tele'a: Is anyone going to pick you up Mubasshira?
Me: I don't know
Mrs Tele'a: Okay then let me drop you off.
Me: Okay.

"You are so lucky that I dropped you off right at your door step". Mrs Tele'a said to me as I got off the van. I laughed when Mrs Tele'a said that. "Bye" I said to Mrs Tele'a and she left. That was a really fun day for me. I was really happy. I felt like as if that day was the best day of my life. I wish we have another day just like that next year. It was awesome.

Stripes are Cooking


Today one of our reading group were cooking. What were they Cooking?!!! They were cooking 2 scrumptious recipes called chocolate balls and chocolate cookies. They were so delicious. Here are 2 poems for the chocolate cookies and the chocolate balls that were so divine.

Chocolate Balls Poem:
So divine, so scrumptious so "Mmmmh". That was the best treat that the stripes had given me. Awesome. The chocolate balls had tasted like chocolate laming tons with coconut on top. As I handed the coconut balls to all the people, I waited patiently for my turn. The Chocolate balls tasted delicious. That was a great treat.

Chocolate Cookie Poem:
Delicious, delightful and lots of words to describe this one. Scrumptious and would be such a nice appetizer for a king and queen. If you saw that awesome treat your moth would get watery. It will titillate you to have it. Our ones were well prepared too. Delicious is the word you would say if you ate it.

So these are the poems. Did you like it? Thank you. Please comment on my post if you liked it.
Thank You

Extreme Athletics


As soon I got to school I saw people setting out cones and equipment. Was it really happening?. "Oh no" I screamed. It was athletics day. Uh Oh I had forgotten about it.
It was on the fields and the whole school was there. From all that screaming I had got a little bit dizzy. "Ahhhhhh". It started at 9:00 and was going to go until 2:30. That was nearly 6 hours and 30 minutes. How would I be able to run, jump and do all sorts of stuff for more than 6 hours? Well a little bit more than 6 hours.

Anxiously I waited at the start line fidgeting nervously. "It's nearly my turn!" I whispered to myself. My heart was pounding super fast like it was going to explode. I clenched my hands positioned to run. I stared at the finish line. "Hah Hah Hah" that was me breathing hard. It was as if it was my last day of my life.

Bang!!! the clapper goes. I power ahead to be the first one in line. I closed my eyes and wished that I came first. I felt as if I was in the Olympics racing in the marathons with lots of components. As I raced towards the finish line the pounding of feet sounded like rocks in an avalanche.  Before I knew it the sprints had finished. What had I came anywhere? 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th or last. I bet I was last and I was.

As I walked back to the start line I wondered, "Could I have done better?" I felt a little guilty. I decided in my mind that I would give it my best in the next race.

BANG! Once again the clapper went. 6 components checked ( Including me ). I was really looking forward to this race.  "I wonder what I am going to come in this race"  murmured to myself.  My legs and arms were pumping like they were about to explode.  Finished.  1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th this time I had just came 2nd to last. Only a little bit of improvement. I felt okay but not so great that I had came 2nd to last.

STOP TOLERATING!!!


Hi
My name is Mubasshira and I am going to talk about what we have been doing for ROW ( Rock Our World ) 11. In ROW 11 We have been learning about Tolerance. Tolerance is a very big thing. It is something that can make people happy and sad. We tolerate things that have happened in our community.

As you can see I have drawn some things that we should not tolerate. Look at the notes that I have attached with my flickr page and see what could happen if you tolerate.

The First one on the left says Bad Language. I have used the symbol for bad language because that is one of the common things. Bad language can hurt other people and make them sad. That is why I have put a symbol for that.

Then the First one on the right. That is a sign for smoking. I have done Smoking because Smoking kills. it is a very bad thing if you smoke. If you smoke people can die. It can harm and can do all sorts of things to people and their bodies. So people out there stop smoking if you do, remmember it kills!!!

The second one on the left says Tagging! Tagging is one of the things that all bad people do and thats the reason thats brings me here to tell you a little bit about Tagging. You should not Tag because it could hurt people and make them sad. Thats why I am telling you to not tag. So people don't TAG.

And so on the last one that is the second one on the right it says Stop Tolerating. "STOP TOLERATING" and so I hope from my advices you have learnt a little bit about not tolerating. I hope these advices help you. Have a Happy Day.

Thank You for coming and having a look at things that I would not Tolerate.
Here is a link that will take you to my Flickr page and there will be extra information. ( Flickr Page )
Bye.

My Super 2 Weeks Holiday!!!

As I woke up and stretched my arms a crossed the room I saw the sun shining on my face I woke up and realized that it was my sister's birthday and we were going to get a Ipod Touch for her. So I rushed downstairs and saw everybody getting ready. I opened my lips to talk but as I opened it My dad said "Were all going to go to Harvey Norman because this man told us that a Ipod touch is on special and your sister wants it. So are you going to come?" I looked at my laptop bag and said "Nah I rather stay at home instead of coming but get me something I like". My mum said "Okay" and they left. Before my sister went out to the car I shouted out to her "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" and she replied "Thank You".

So quickly I had a shower and got ready while I was doing my hair I stopped every few minutes each time I stopped I would do something at the Laptop the first time I took the laptop out and plugged the charger in. The second time I turned it on and put my password in. As soon as my hair was done I quickly checked my mail and started playing games that I had downloaded. Time was passing by and it had already turned to sunset. I love seeing the sunset sometimes if you look in the sky it is light pink and purple. So I put the Laptop on one side and ran outside looked up in the sky and put my hands up to feel the cold air on my sleeveless arms.

I realized a light shining on me and it was the headlights of the car . I raced towards the car and saw my sister happy. They had got the Ipod. I ran to see it but it was still packed. My sister ran inside and opened it up and put it on charge . I was the second one to play on it. It was awesome. The things I liked on it was the Internet. We could go on anything.

After It was charged my sister put some songs on to it and then went to sleep. But I slept later than her. When I came upstairs I just heard the songs my sister had put on and went to sleep while I was hearing it. I really liked the Ipod Touch. The Next day I complained to my mum and said "I want a Ipod too".

The End

My Culture and Famous People in My Culture


Hi my name is Mubasshira and I am going to talk about my culture that is Islam and the famous people in my culture. Firstly I would like to tell you about God.

People say that we don't believe in Jesus well that is true but we believe in this other god named Allah (Al-lah). His messenger is called Mohammed (My brothers name). 1 of the things we have to read everyday is the Holy Quran (Ku-raan). There are 5 important things you have to do in you Islamic life that is

1. Faith
There is no god worthy of worship except Allah and Mohammed is his messenger.

2. Prayer
Salat is the name of the obligatory prayers that are preformed 5 times a day, and are a direct link between the Worshipper and Allah.

3.Zakaat
one of the most important principles of Islam is that all things belong to god, and that wealth is therefore held by human beings in trust.

4. Fasting
Every year in the month of Ramadan, all Muslims fast from first light until sundown, abstaining from food, drink and other things you eat in the day.

5.Pilgrimage
To have a trip to Makkah, Hajj and this is the Place where Allah was born and this is where we pray to Allah.

So these are the 5 most important things in the Life. In Islam you can learn lots of things.

Now lastly here are some people who converted themselves into the culture of Islam.

1. Muhammed Ali

2. Jermaine Jackson

3. Michael Jackson and also known as (A.K.A) Michaaeel (Mick-haa-eel) Jackson and this is the name of 1 famous Angel of Allah and he is in charge of food and rain. Other Angels work under him who are in charge of clouds, the seas, the rivers, and the wind. He gets the order from Allah. He then orders the others under his commands.

I am very proud to be a Muslim.
Thank you please comment.
If you have any questions please comment and tell me and I will make sure I answer them all.

Henna


Hi my name is Mubasshira. I am going to tell you about a traditional think of Indians. Henna is a very cool thing. You apply it on special Festivals such as New years day or like on Christmas and all sorts of things. Here is a picture of my hands and my henna. This is how I sometimes do my henna. If you see very closely you might be even able to see my name. We put this on by Henna cone sometimes if you want to have darker colour you can just buy the powder and put water in it and leave it for a day. I just had got the cone it is much easier. If you are wondering where to get these you can find it in New Zealand or India. On my hands my sister just did some patterns and had looked out of books. If you do this it depends on how much we have put on. If you have a lot like me you have to at least leave it on for 3 hours. If you just did your name you will like to only put it on for a hour.
So have you learnt enough about Henna?
Thank you.
If you need any help just ask me.

There is a Ball at the Pt England Castle (Hall)


On Thursday the 24th of September Week 10 Pt England School is having a ball . This name of the ball is called The Art in Storytelling. It will be in the Pt England Castle!! (Hall) This is about fairy tales. We will have to dress up in Fairy tale characters. From today I will be thinking about who I will be doing because I change my mind a lot. I have an idea of being Tinkerbell's friend, Silvermist . I don't want to be Tinkerbell because Ala (My friend) might be Tinkerbell or she might be Tinkerbells other friend Rosseta.

So Pt Englanders what are you going to be at the Royal Ball?
Thanks to (http://www.shoppalstores.com/tad_bits/image//logos/Fairies%20pic.jpg) for this amazing image o Tinkerbell and her friends.

Our Principal, Mr Burt

Today I am going to talk about our Principal, Mr Burt.

Mr Burt is a very kind and responsible Principal because he does anything for us and our school. He always gets visitors for our school. He also shows what people have been doing and sometimes he even comes to our school with visitors and they look at our blogs.

One of the best things I like about Mr Burt is that he teachers us manners. On Fridays he always gives us a korero (Saying) to remember for the next week. One of the korero we have been doing for years is "Use Your W.I.T.S" .
W is walk away if someone is being mean to you.
I is ignore it if people are teasing you.
T is for talk about it sometimes.
and
S is for seek help sometimes.
The korero for this week (Week 6) was keep it really real because honesty pays off.

So do you have a Principal that is so kind and responsible like our Principal???

My Story of Cinderella With a Twist In To It


Once upon a time in a far away land there was a 3 level house, There lived a father a beautiful kind mother and a little girl called Cinderella. She was the most prettiest girl in town. Her dad was the most handsome man in town too. Suddenly one day Cinderella and her dad found out that her mum had died by a car accident.

Cinderella felt so sad that she went and cried by her mums graveyard. Not long after her dad had got married to a cruel women that was so self centered and controlling. Then 1 day tragedy struck again because the family found out that the father had died in an earthquake so Cinderella was left with no one that cared for her.

The Cruel Stepmother took away all of Cinderella and gave it to her 2 hideous daughters Anastasia and Rozella. She dressed Cinderella in to clothes that a maid wears. Cinderella wore those clothes day-time and night-time. The 2 ugly stepsisters of Cinderella always tried to beautify themselves but their is no one as beautiful as Cinderella.

One day there was a knock on the door. Cinderella opened the door and there was a letter although she was curious Cinderella didn`t open and see it because she knew she was sure she would get in trouble from her stepmother. So she went upstairs and told Anastasia and Rozella that there was a letter. "From who?" the 2 stepsisters said Cinderella looked up and said "An invitation from the King" Cinderella said as she read. 

The stepsisters ripped open the letter and jabbered to Cinderella "Oh I am going to the ball".   Cinderella jumped in excitment and exclaimed "Well you are going so I can come too".  "But you have to be our BFF" said Rozella smiling as she put her hand on Annastasia "Get OFF! Rozella" said Annastasia getting angry at Rozella. 

Next Morning there was everybody getting changed except Cinderella.  She had to stich everybody's dresses "What do you call that?" growled Rozella as she put some more powder on her face.  "Oh sorry"  said Cinderella "Better be" said Rozella in a mean voice.  So they left without saying anything at Cinderella. 

While they were gone Cinderella went outside to her mother's graveyard. She wept and wept when suddenly there was a fairy in the air Cinderella asked "Who are you?" a voice replied " I am your fairy godmother oh my dear but why are you crying?". "I am crying because I want to go to the ball" Cinderella said in a bellowing voice. "No worries I will make everything okay". So she asked Cinderella to get her a pumpkin and in a hurry she wove her wand at the pumpkin and it turned into a shiny white onion with a door that was for what she was going to go in to the ball. Please get me 6 rats she offered. Cinderella got it from the mice trap that had been put in front of her house. The Fairy Godmother had turned 5 of the rats into horses and she made 1 into a horseman. After a while she looked at everything she thought it was perfect "Now you can leave" said the fairy godmother. "But my clothes" said Cinderella. "Oh how can I forget your clothes" said the fairy godmother and so in a glimpse she wove her wand at her and sweet and demure Cinderella had a frilly and frothy flowing train on her dress. "Now you may leave Cinderella" said the fairy godmother greeting her to the door of the beautiful onion. Before Cinderella left the Fairy godmother had said that she had to be back by midnight because that will be the time the spell will be broken Cinderella had said bye and had left.

When Cinderella entered the ball excitedly there was silence for a minute. The prince had thought in his mind that Cinderella was his princess. He had took her by the hand already and had been dancing with her all night. "TING TING TING" stroke the clock. It was 12am Cinderella had to run without giving any information about her on her way she had forgotten 1 of her glass slippers. She didn`t have time to pick it up so the prince had gone to see but when he had gone Cinderella was already gone from sight. The Prince wanted to find her so he had gone to the king and said "I will go to every house in this town and see who fits this glass slipper" The king had no problem about the prince going to all the houses so he had said "Okay".

So the next day the Prince went to all the houses and but there was no one who was able to fit the glass slipper. There was only 2 more houses to go and Cinderella`s house was first out of the 2 so he went there and the 2 ugly stepsisters tried to put it on but they could not fit it. They were so disappointed that they started to fight. When the 2 ugly stepsisters were fighting Cinderella came down the stairs and said to the prince "Can I try on the slipper please?". The Prince bowed down and put it on and it did fit! The 2 hideous ugly stepsisters were amazed and started to argue. But there arguing did not stop Cinderella from going. The prince took her by the hand and in the car. The prince told Cinderella "Can I just go into the other house and see if anybody in the house fits this glass slipper?" "But you have already found the person you are looking for" said Cinderella. "But..." said the Prince. "Okay" said Cinderella. So while Cinderella sat in the car the prince went to the other house.


In that house there was only 2 people. There was a daughter called Cinderfella and a father. When Cinderfella found out everything about the prince wanting his princess she raced and put the slipper on her and it did fit!!! The prince was amazed as well as confused. So he took her into the car as well. When Cinderella saw the girl sitting next to her she asked "Who are you? and why are you here?" Cinderfella replied "Well I am Cinderfella and I am here because the prince is going to marry me. Well why are you here and what is your name?" asked Cinderfella. When Cinderella found out she was so angry like she felt like fighting with her but she was a very nice girl and replied " Hi my name is Cinderella and I am here because the prince is going to marry me and yeah remember that I am going to be his princess". They fighted by whispering so that the prince will not hear.

When they reached the palace the prince started discussing what will he do with the 2 princess's to the king. He thought that 1 might be lying. So he ordered to the 2 princesses that tomorrow I will come and pick you up and you will have to be ready in your clothes that you wore to the ball and I will see who danced like the one I danced with yesterday. The prince couldn't sleep the whole night. Finally he went to sleep. 

Next morning when Cinderella woke up she saw the clothes that she wore at the ball and when she stood up to open the curtains there was a glimpse of light and there in the air stood the fairy godmother. "Dear quickly wear those clothes and those glass slippers I know everything that happened last night and remember the prince is coming, quickly". Cinderella didn`t have time to speak so she quickly got ready and by the time she was downstairs the prince was already there with Cinderfella waiting. When she went Anastasia and Rozella looked at each other and started to talk bad about Cinderella and they started to cry. The stepmother didn`t say anything and started to comfort them both.

When Cinderella and Cinderfella reached the palace the prince danced with both of them and he noticed that Cinderella was his real princess. Cinderfella got so angry that she shed tears and said to the prince "Well I am sorry I lied to you my dad wanted me to marry you because that was his dream". The Prince said " Well at least you shouldn't of lied to me you just needed to tell me and I am sorry I have my princess that is truthful". So Cinderfella ran to the car and the prince`s driver went to drop her home.

A few minutes later the prince asked the Cinderella if he could marry her. Cinderella said "YES of course" and the Prince replied "Why don`t we get married tomorrow" Cinderella was so happy and had said yes. The prince took her home and said bye. Cinderella told her family what had happened and she even invited them to her wedding. Now this time they got so angry like they were going to lock her up in her room but they didn`t and so the nest morning they persuaded her in a nice way but Cinderella was not going to do what they had said. When all of Cinderella`s family went to the wedding Cinderella was already putting the ring on the prince and before the Prince put the ring on Cinderella the family said "STOP" everybody stoped and looked. Then Rozella said "Hey Cinderella please can you not marry the Prince we`ll let you be our BFF and we will help you with the chores and we will let you have a nice pretty room is that okay with you?" Cinderella felt so pity on them and said "Yes now we all three will be BFF`s". Cinderella slapped the prince and said in a mean way "I will not marry you". The prince started to weep and say "Okay".


And so the Prince married Cinderfella and They lived Happily Ever After.

Hansel and Gretels Revenge


You might know the ordinary story of Hansel and Gretel well this one starts when the nasty old witch with failing eyesight is ready to cook Hansel.

When the old wicked witch was going to cook Hansel in a huge big pot where she cooked children, Gretel found the key of the cage where Hansel was kept. As quickly as a rabbit Gretel went to the room and unlocked Hansel and they ran outside and hid behind the fence. When the wicked witch saw that there was no water she called Gretel to get it but Gretel was not there she thought that she might be giving Hansel the food so she went to the stalls and got a huge bucket of water it was very heavy so she had to drag it all the way. When she was coming Hansel and Gretel hid behind the door and when the wicked old nasty witch went inside the 2 children grabbed her and locked her in the cage where Hansel was kept for 2 weeks. They fed her lots and lots of Chocolate and muffins that she started to cry. One day Hansel and Gretel decided that they will take all the gold that the witch had and take it to the dad only not the self centered woman who hates them. So after 2 weeks they took the gold and went back to the dimly lit cottage. 

The father was so happy and exited. Not long after they had a huge mansion and the king (father) had a new wife that was so kind. He also ordered the wicked stepmother to become their servant. They all lived happily ever after except the stepmother

The Three Little Pigs Retold by Mubasshira

Once upon a time there was a mother pig she had 3 little pigs. It was going to be Christmas Eve and they needed to get presents for everybody so they told the mother pig that they will go to the far away piggies mall and they will be going to stay somewhere else. The mother pig was not worried about that because they were also getting so big so she said "Take care" and the 3 little pigs setted of for their journey.

The first pig made a house from straws the second made a house from sticks and the third little pig made a house from bricks. When they were finished making there houses they went inside and made little beds from straws.

At night while the first pig was reading a book called What the 3 Little Piggies liked to buy for Christmas a wolf came along and said "Little pig, little pig let me come in or i`ll huff and i`ll puff and blow your house down" then the pig said " Not by the hair of my chiny chin chin so the wolf huffed and he puffed and he blew the house down and the little pig ran to the second pigs house and slammed the door shut. The second pig was so frightened he didn't have time to talk and said "Is there a wolf!!!" "Yes" said the little pig. "Little pigs little pigs let me come in or i`ll huff and i`ll puff and blow your house down". The 2 little pigs shouted "Not by the hair of my chiny chin chin". So the wolf huffed and he puffed and he blew the house down. The 2 little pigs ran and ran to the third little pigs house and shut the door and put thousands of bricks so that the wolf could not blow it. The third little pig was so confused in a hurry the first little pig said "Well it is the Wolf!!!" The third little pig was so frightened. When the wolf tried to blow the house he didn`t have enough energy left as well as he was so tired. So he left. The three little pigs still thought the wolf was chasing them.

Suddenly they saw a something coming down the chimney and so they thought it was the wolf . They quickly put a big pot of boiling water and put it on fire. When the mysterious thing went into the boiling water they put the lid on it and thought that, that was the end of the wolf. But it was not when they opened to see how it was cooking presents were poping up and socks and candy. All of a sudden they realised that they had killed Santa. "Oh uh" the three little pigs said and when they looked out the windows the reindeer's were looking like they didn`t even know what was happening. After all they did not have a Santa and had to lead a very miserable life.

The Fiordland Earthquake



"Hi Mr Campbell" we were talking to a Geologist that research's scientists. He was going to tell us about the Fiordland Earthquake that happened at the South Island. This happened on July 16th 09. Luckily that there were no people killed by that Earthquake. That Earthquake was 30 seconds long. The name of this earthquake is called Dusky Sound Earthquake.

Earthquakes are so dangerous because they happen so quickly. They do not give warnings e.g (When a Tornado comes or a Volcano is going to erupt they give us warnings before they come.) Well this is a bit different when an earthquake comes people do not know whether they are going to come or not. Mr Campbell told us that in Tangshan, China 1976 there was an earthquake. It was for 15 seconds and 242, 000 people died from that earthquake.

So this earthquake in Fiordland was 7.6 big this is the biggest earthquake after 80 years. This earthquake had also made New Zealand move 30 cm closer to Australia. We were amazed when we heard that. Mr Campbell also told us that the plates had collided and the pacific plate was on top of the Australian plate and it was 30 degrees apart from each other. He said that the epicentre was by the resolution island.

Yesterday we made a Seismometer this is something that tells you how big a earthquake is. In my group it was Toreka, Seini-Mino and me. We had a little mistake doing this because we needed a real Earthquake happening but it was so much fun making it. You might want to look at some of my other posts and in there I will be telling you how to make a seismometer.

At the end Hamish Campbell told us that Joan Wiffen had died, "Ohhhh" we said after he had told us.  Joan Wiffen is a New Zealand Paleontologist she had discovered the first dinosaur fossil in New Zealand.

Thank you Diana-Grace and Hamish Campbell from the Te Papa Museum for letting us talk to you this was a wonderful opportunity to talk to you.  We hope we talk to you again. 

Here are some sights where it will tell you about Joan Wiffen:

Pt England`s First Fairy Tale Topic


    We walked into the hall and I noticed all of the teachers were dressed up as fairy tale characters.  I saw a fairy godmother granting wishes, a grumpy Shrek, and all sorts of characters.  We were in the hall because it was the first day of term 3.  “Yay we were going to learn about fairy tales”.  


When Mr Burt came into the hall he was wearing clothes that a prince wears.  As he was walking down the hall he said “Have you seen my princess?” Just then in my head there was a “CLICK” and I knew what he was talking about.  He was talking about Cinderella!  I also knew it was Cinderella because in his right hand he was holding a glass slipper.  Mr Burt I mean the Prince was so sad about where his princess had gone.  Next he told all the team 1 teachers to come up on stage. 


The best teacher I liked from team 1 was Miss Wild because she was acting like Little Red Riding Hood.  Mr Burt then welcomed team 2.  I liked Miss Va’afusuaga best because she acted like Puss ‘n’ Boots and she actually spoke like Puss ‘n’ Boots. 


As Mr Burt introduced team 3 an exquisitely beautiful Cinderella, who was Miss Garden, walked on the stage with her flouncy, flowing train swishing from side to side.  There also were the 2 hideous and jealous stepsisters squabbling and disputing over the gumboot  and the broom stick which had a image of Brad Pitt on it.  Mr Burt said to Cinderella “ You are not my princess because there`s are a huge difference between a gumboot and a glass slipper!” Cinderella said “Oh” disappointingly and stepped off the stage. 


This is when team 4 came up.  There was a grumpy Shrek, a kind Fiona, a Pied Piper of Auckland and a magical and mysterious fairy godmother.  The best fairy tale character I liked was the fairy godmother because I really like magical things and also because they are so mysterious. 


Suddenly an Evil Queen strode angrily down the aisle.  The Evil Queen had a sinister stare and snapped condescendingly at anyone who talked to her.  "She's so vain!" I said in my mind.  In her bag she had a pig's heart, a mirror and an apple, a poisonous apple.  I knew the story of snow white and the seven dwarfs.  She chattered "If you know why I have these 3 things in my handbag come to my palace and record it in to my magical camera". 


Mr Burt then introduced what we were learning about and then we left.  I really liked how we are learning about fairy tales because it will be so much fun this term also because I think we will be doing plays of fairy tale stories.

Ankylosaurus Hyperstudio Stack

Ankylosaurus

Ankylosaurus meant Fused Lizard. Ankylosaurus was a plant-eating dinosaur. It had to eat a hug amount of low lying plant material. It had 4 short legs. Ankylosaurus was a huge armoured dinosaur, measuring about 7.5 - 10.7 m long, 1.8 m wide and 1.2 m tall. It weighed roughly 3-4 tons. This dinosaur had a short neck and a wide skull with a tiny brain. This large dinosaur lived in the Cretaceous Period about 75-65 million years ago.

Nutrition

Ankylosaurus eats low-lying plants. The teeth are 2cm long and its small teeth are perfect for nipping leaves that are low-lying. Ankylosaurus had large throat bones and that show us that Ankylosaurus had a big tongue which probably pushed it`s food around inside it`s mouth before swallowing.

Adaptation

Ankylosaurus had plates of bony armour that were joined together over their bodies. Ankylosaurus had a long wide body. 2 row of spikes grew along its back and it had horns at the back of it`s head. It had a tail like a club, which they used to attack predators. The club was made from several plates of armour that locked together. Ankylosaurus was a Saurischian which means it was a lizard hipped dinosaur.

Habitat

Ankylosaurus lived in the Cretaceous period that is 65-75 million years ago. Ankylosaurus lived in North America because fossils were found in the state of Montana, USA. They were also found in Alberta, Canada. This dinosaur was the last armoured dinosaur.

How did dinosaurs become extinct?

Ankylosaurus and all the other dinosaurs ( except birds ) perished in the Cretaceous Tertiary extinction , 65 million years ago. Some paleontologists believe that a huge meteorite had crashed into the coast of Mexico and some paleontologists believe that Hydrogen had spread around and for dinosaurs hydrogen was not good for them. So these were the 2 theory`s to how dinosaurs became extinct.

Intelligence

Ankylosaurus was an ankylosaur. Scientists believe it wasn`t very intelligent because their brain was small compared to its body weight. This means its intelligence was compared to some other dinosaurs.

Paleontologists

Thankfully paleontologists are still learning about dinosaurs because they are still discovering more fossils.

About Me


Hi My name is Mubasshira and I am going to tell you about myself.  I am 9 years old. I go to Pt England school.  I am in room 15.  I am a year 5.  My teacher is Mr Squries.  My favourite things to do is do lots of work.  When I have nothing to do I will always go on the internet and find out lots of information about things we do in class. I love doing my homework.  In my family I have a my dad my mum my 3 sisters and my brother.  We always have little fights in little things. I love my family because they care for me a lot. My best friend is Selena. She also cares for me just like my family does for me.  

The Duffy Show

" Yay there is a Duffy Assembly after interval". I shouted. I really like Duffy as he teached us to read and he takes us on adventures. " I wonder what will his adventure be this time" I said to Selena. The bell went "Triinngg". We went to the hall and sat down to watch the show. There was an enormous book called The Story Snatcher. On the book cover was a beautiful picture of a tower with someone`s hand out of the tower window.
When Duffy began to tell us the story the first thing he said was the rules.
The rules were:
1. You have to sit still on your Gluteux Maximus (bottom).
2. When they gave a signal for being quiet we had to be quiet.
3. When they ask a question we just have to call it out.
So they began.
The story was about a snatcher of books, Master Villain. He was so stupid because he said " I will burn all the books and I will be brainy". Duffy said " Oh hang on how will you get brainy by burning all the books". "Ah well all the knowledge will go into my head". Master Villain said. It all started when one day Duffy went to Aunt Roha`s house and he said " Aunt Aunt can you read me this book?". " Sure Duffy" Aunt Roha replied. She started reading the story to Duffy it was a nice story.
In the show aunt Roha got kidnapped and put in to a dungeon in the villain`s tower. Duffy needed help so he went to a fortune teller her name was T. She did fortune telling in her little tent. When Duffy came she thought it was Master Villain so she acted like a statue. Duffy touched T because he needed help but T did not move so Duffy went away. After searching and searching Duffy finally found Aunt Roha and he also persuaded MV ( Master Villain ) to read. MV got taught reading by T and he got really brainy.

Musuem Trip

"Yay my first trip to the museum" I shouted to said to Selena and Angela. It was Wednesday the 24th June 2009. Room 14, 15, 16 and the extension group had to get some morning tea and put it in to a huge yellow box before we heading off to the bus. In the bus I sat with Angela and Selena. We had so much fun playing I spy and tickling each other.

When we reached there the curator told us to come in. " This is unbelievable this looks like Buckingham Palace ", I exclaimed as I glanced around. We first had a short time in the coastal Natural History section before going to the learning centre. There, we were learning about fossils and theropods by a man called Paul. On the floor was this comfy red mat we had to sit on. Paul knew lots of things about fossils and theropods.

Firstly he showed us a big bored with footprints of theropods on it it. Paul explained that we can find out lots of information about dinosaur`s behavior from their footprints. From the board I found out that theropods put little babies in between the parents when they are walking for their protection ( e.g So the predators don`t attack it).

Paul then said we had to get organised in to 4-6 groups. In my group there was Tule, Latu, Bobbi- Grace, Destiny and me. Our parent was Tule`s mum. Paul gave all the groups a little box with a bag. Each bag had something in it which we had to guess what it was by studying it, and comparing it with other things. My group got a rock that had scales on it. We had to find out what kind of scales they were. We found out that the scales were of prehistoric crocodiles. Paul even had an example of a crocodiles skin we compared it to the rock. He said that when the crocodile died it left a imprint of the skin in the mud that became a fossil.
One group got a tooth of a T. Rex. They studied the tooth and discovered that more than half of the tooth was inside the gum. This is because when the T. Rex bites the meat, the tooth will otherwise fall out. That's why the T. Rex needs the tooth in gum hold it up and keep it strong.
One of the other groups got poo, uh ha poo!! Poo is called coprolite. We laughed when we heard that. Poo is actually very cool to study because you can find out lots of information such as what the dinosaur ate and how it ate. For example did it first chew it all up or whether it just gulped it down.
Later we had a look around at the dinosaur skeletons we also did a little quiz with a partner. I would really like to go to the museum again because it was so cool in the learning centre.

Dino-Day

On Friday 12th of June 2009 we had Dino-Day. The whole school had groups to go in. The letters of the alphabet were the names of the group it was only up to A-W. It was like a immersion rotation. A immersion rotation is when you go to different places in time to do different activities. There were lots of groups in. I was in the V group. We had to go to different classroom`s. I went to room 10 first. Our teacher was Miss Lavakula. Over there we had a challenge first in that challenge Miss Lavakula gave us a paper on it, it said the numbers up to 20 and we had to get in to groups there was 4 groups. In my group there was 4 people. In that challenge we had to get the piece of paper Miss Lavavkula gave and sit on a table. Miss Lavavkula gave us a little card on it, it had questions about dinosaurs we had to answer them on the piece of paper we got then someone out of our group had to take it over to Miss Lavakula and do the hula hoop 5 times so after we have done the hula hoop 5 times Miss Lavakula will give us another little card we had to do that 20 times until we got to the end and all the answers were right. A little time after we were finished doing the challenge. Next we watched Jurassic Park Part 3 it was fun we got dinosaur lollies and popcorn. It was like we were at the cinemas. When the bell went we were up to the scary part where they are in the big truck and the T. Rex comes I felt a bit scared but it was only a movie it was a nice movie. So after the bell went we had to go back to our own class it. At Interval we only had 30 minutes to play ( as usual ). hen the bell went to go back to a new class we had to go to the hall so they could tell us where we could go next. The V group went to room 15 ( my class ). Over there we made a Dinosaur Diorama. The little kids had to paint the base and made tree`s with flax and the big kids had to paint the dinosaurs and paint the outside of it When we were painting we had to get in groups as well in this we had 4 groups again...

The Morning Poem

This Morning it was freezing cold like I was on a high slope of an icy mountain. I brushed my teeth and put on my uniform. As I got my bag I started munching on a little piece of warm chicken. It made me feel better and warmer. I went to school and saw the grass frosty and cold like I have never seen it before. I was shivering. I thought we had a trip to a cold green and white icy mountain.

My Best Friend Selena


Hi my name is Mubasshira and I am going to tell you about my best friend Selena. Selena and I have been friends for 5 years this is way to long. She is so caring and loving. Whenever I am sad or if I have got hurt she will always say "Are you alright". To me she is like a sister. I am older than her she is 9 years old and I am 10 years old. Her birthday is on 6th July and my birthday is 1st May. We have been best friends since year 1. We always have little fights for pencils but we always solve it in a happy way. When ever she dosen`t have a pencil or something I will always let her use it and after when I don`t have it I will always find a resolution to it.

So do you have a friend that is so caring and loving like Selena?

I Made My Mothers Day


Last Sunday it was a special day for my mother. It was Mothers day. My sister had a plan. No one knew about this plan except me and my 2nd oldest sister Faheema (Fa-hee-ma). My Oldest sister Naima (Na-ee-ma) said to Faheema go and tell your friend to buy you a bouquet (because my oldest sister was in London). Our plan was to get a bouquet and put it on the bed then Faheema will tell my brother the plan, my brother will go and get our mum and our aunt and give them a surprise. It was late and my mum and aunt saw the bouquet and they were really happy. It even had a not on it saying "HAPPY MOTHERS DAY mum and aunt" from Naima (Sister), Faheema (Sister), Moonisah (Sister), Mubasshira, Mohammed (brother), Saadiya (Cousin), Shahid (Cousin). My sister and I were laughing so much that our stomach was hurting. My mum said to us "Was this your plan to get a bouquet?" we said "Yes but Naima told us to get it".

The bouquet had glitter all over it, it looked beautiful. The amazing thing about the bouquet was that it looked like fake flowers but it was real flowers and we had to put it in a jar with water in it.

The flowers were gob smacking. I loved them. Next time we will make a superior plan.

The End
