"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.

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.

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.

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.

Hi my name is Mubasshira and I am going to talk about my second best friend, Ala. She is 10 years old but I am older than her, her birthday is on July the 14th and my birthday is on May the 1st. She is a very helpful friend. Ala is a big and softhearted girl. She helps me in things I need help in. I like her very much because she is very cool. One of the things I like about Ala is that she is a very nice kind friend. She cares for me if I get hurt or if I am sad. Together we like to play Tag a lot. It is so fun she sometimes cheats but I don`t care, thats just how friends play. We are not best friends but I think she is my second best friend to me. I care for her when she is hurt or sad. When she smiles I smile because she is happy
So do you have a friend that is like Ala?
This Website will take you to Ala's Blog
Thank You Mubasshira

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.
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???

her brighter then she is. By Mubasshira

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.

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?

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.
