Simon's speech

Should all schools use pencil and paper. I think yes because schools that use computers for learning get distracted easily on their devices. And another fact is because when we get to college a lot of kids hand writing will be bad because they are so use to their computer or tablet. Kids spelling will be bad as well because there is spell check on devices.

Some people when they have their computer at school they hide in a corner with their friends and go on the wrong stuff. But when you have pencil and paper what's the point of hiding in the corner. That's why people should use pencil and paper.

Simon's immersion assembly

Today was the first day back at school and our new focus is Guardians of the galaxy . We got ready for our assembly. As we walked into the school hall we saw stars on the roof. We sat down in our seats and got ready for our teachers items. BOOM the lights turned off and the stars looked beautiful with the lights off.

Team 1 played a movie on the big screen. It was about the teachers going out of space in there cars and checking out planets and how it works. So what team one is going to look at out of space this term.

Team 2’s focus is about the sun and the moon and planets. They played a movie about the teachers in space. They were exploring planets and looking if there was anything interesting about the planets.

Team 3’s focus was about time and seasons. They had a movie as well it was about time and what they do daily. It was pretty funny.
Team 4’s focus is about getting spaceships into space and wondering if there is oxygen on other planets.

Team 5 is the last team and there item was amazing. They did not play a movie because they did a live act. So team 5s focus this term is to learn how the moon changes the tides.

The most informative presentation was probably Team 1s because in their video it shows the teachers in their flying cars flying to space. They visit the sun and the moon and other planets.

The things I'm going to like about this term is studying about space, and looking at how spaceships and other things work in space.

The Warriors rugby game


One of the highlights of my holiday was the Warriors rugby league game at Mt Smart Stadium. As the lady scans my ticket I full up with excitement. The Warriors were versing the Penrith Panthers. We sit down watching the under 21’s rugby game when I see a delicious ice cream getting handed to me from my brother Michael. We sit down to the sight of laughter and enjoyment until we see a video pop up on the big screen. It caught our attention very quickly, it was archives of Manu Vatuvei. Sadly it was Manu Vatuvei last game. The thing I thought was ridiculous was Manu’s contract. “It says he cannot play his final game due to the club”. We watched on to him walking onto the field and the sight of black Warrior jerseys standing up and clapping to him walking onto the field with his family. He sits down with his former team mates with tears running down his face. Him, his family and the crowd were entertained by the warriors performance. The Warriors were doing so good but after half time it’s like they went to sleep. And Sadly they lost in the final minutes. The final score was 22 and 34 to Penrith. At the end of the rugby game the Warriors did a haka to Manu and they gave him his former Warriors Jersey back. The End
