Netball For Me!

Today I am going to tell you about netball and what it is to me. I love playing netball. This is my first time playing a sport. When I was a year 4 I have always wanted to play it but the problem with me was the fear. I feared that I would make my team lose and not be able to catch the ball. Now I have learnt that you should always give it a go. Even if you are not sure if you are going to get in. Lately I have done a few trials and I have caught the ball many times and I did succeed. I wonder if I will get in. I have waited for so long for this opportunity and finally I have got it. I am really interested and excited in who is in the teams. I am really looking forward to many of the tournaments my team and I will be playing (Only if I get in).

What have I Done This Year?

This term has been a very exhilarated term for me. It is about to end. Today I am going to be telling you about some of the highlights for this awesome term. It has been a very big term for my friends, the extension group, my class and ME! I am going to bee talking about 3 big things that has happened which were most entertaining.

I would like to thank all my teachers and especially our principal Mr Burt. He and the teachers have helped us to learn and have a wonderful term this year. I would also like to thank my supporters which are my friends because they have motivated me to do lots of things just like playing netball. It is my first time to play netball and my friends always help me from doing all sorts of things.

Next is camp. I really liked camp. It is amazing how we only needed to pay $70. Normally the charge would have been $200 altogether. We had a really fun time at camp. For that I would like to say a thank you to all the people who have cooked our food. It was awesome and delicious. If those people had not helped us we would have not had a successful camp. My best thing at camp was camp cooking. I really liked those dampers (bread) we made.

Lastly my best thing in this term was talking to D'Wayne Edwards. It was a pleasure to talk in a webinar. If you don't know who D'Wayne is, well he is the HEAD NIKE SHOE DESIGNER. He told us great things about his life and him. D'Wayne also told us some things that would make a perfect design. For this I have another post. Please have a check if you want to know what he said to us. One of the things I liked best is when he said these three sentences which are:
1: Believe in yourself
2: Find a mentor.
3. Work Hard!

The goals for next term for me is to believe in me and work hard. One of the things I want to do in life is to be a teacher. I really appreciate what our teachers to for us to make us learn. They help us in all sorts of things. I am looking forward to all the things that I am going to be doing next term. Have a wonderful day.

NZ History Event 2

In this movie I have drawn an animation about some Maori people coming and signing the Treaty of Waitangi. Hone Heke signed it first because he thought it will bring peace to them and the Europeans. Thanks to Queen Elizabeth for making a thing called the Treaty. I hope you enjoy my Movie. Thank You.

My Camp Highlights

"I can't wait, Yes" I screamed to Selena. It was Wednesday 17th of March and we were going to have a great day. You might be wondering why we were like this? Well we were like this because it was the first Camp day of 2010!!! It was amazing. The first thing we were doing was ROCK CLIMBING! I was very happy and joyful. we had teams and I was in the Considerators which was the sixth team and our lovely teacher was Mr Barks.

When we reached the place we quickly got taught what we needed to wear which was the Harnas and that someone needed to be with you at the bottom of the wall. I did one wall that was just blocks. I was really nervous at first but then I got a little comfortable. I had got half way but suddenly something happened to me, my hands were slipping off. I told Mr Nua who was one of the drivers that took us to the places. Once I got off I didn't really have another chance to go on because it was time to leave.

After we did Skate land we went 10 pin bowling. That was one of my favourite one. I really liked it. Each player got to play. In one lane was 5 people but in the last lane there was 1 extra person. I had got 4 spares and 1 strike. I was extremely happy. We nearly won because the winners were the group with 6 people. I was quite sad but I didn’t really care because at least my group came 2nd. We only got 1 game each. After a while it was time to go. I said to Selena that we should have had 2 games. I was so happy.

After 5 minutes we reached back to school. Me and Selena ran off to the courts to see what the other teams were doing. But as we reached there nobody was there so we sat down and started talking about the highlights about the day. We were also talking about the things we were looking forward too. My best part of Camp was Rock Climbing. I told Selena about the thing I was lookin forward to which was Camp Cooking. I love making the damper (bread) and eating it. I can’t wait for the next camp. We are going to have great fun.

Our Talk with a Really Famous Man!

Guess what we did on Friday after school at 3 o'clock? Well we talked to a famous man. He is the Nike Shoe designer. Anybody know who that is? Well that is D'Wayne Edwards! Cool isn't it. We had a really good opportunity to talk to him. Unfortunately we didn't get to talk by a mic, we had to write it in a text box and send it like a comment. We asked a lot of questions which were so helpful to us because it helped me and the extension group on designing our shoe. It was great.

He told us about some of his pair of shoes and some off the oldest ones. He even designed shoes for Michael Jordan. D'Wayne said to us that in his closet he has 400 or more pairs of shoes that is designed by him!. That would be incredible. He also told us some of the things that made him believe that he could be a lead shoe designer. One of the people who made him believe that was no other person than his......MUM. She was the greatest to him and said to him that he could do it. He even opened a school which just made people learn how to draw. It was called Pensole. He said that he named it Pensole because the pen was how he learned to draw and the sole is the thing he did on the shoe. I hope we will get to do many things with D'wayne and by the end of the year we will know how to do at least 2-5 shoes.

Rugby for Rosie, My Upcoming Podcast

Hi my name is Mubasshira and I am going to tell you about the ending of the book Rugby for Rosie. If you want to know what happens in the book Rugby for Rosie than you will have to go to the KPE blog (A shortcut is go to my blog and click under the KPE Podcaster badge where it says 'Click here to check out my podcast') and find it there. So here it is.

After when Rosie, Mandy Mega Women and Mrs Ace had finished talking they had reached their classroom, where all the other girls had been sitting. First when Mrs Ace said that Mandy Mega Women was the women next to her, nobody believed her so then Mandy Mega Women took off her coat. Suddenly a head popped up and said it is true she is the real Mandy Mega Women. After a while when everyone in the class was quiet for moment 1 of the girls just stood up and said "But you wear mini skits and you are not like that". Mandy Mega Women said that everyone has a unique personality, everyone has a inside of them and a outside personality just like on screen and off screen. She took herself as a example. Mandy Mega Women said " I wear mini skirts on screen but off screen I am very dirty, a little like Rosie". Rosie giggled.

A while later Mandy Mega Women had persuaded all the girls to play rugby. Rosie was so happy and do you know what the other girls did? Well they cheered for Rosie and the Fly Hards (Their Teams Name). The next day was the other tournament and the other girls promised Rosie they will turn up. Well do you think the girls will turn up or do you think they will deceive her?

Well if you want to know more then you will have to read the book for yourself. So this was Mubasshira telling you about the book Rugby For Rosie by Frances Adlam. Kaki te ano.
