I am thankful for having an education and being able to learn because in some countries girls don’t get to go school. Another thing that I am thankful for is having parents because some children don’t have parents and they have foster parents. The last thing that I am really thankful for is food and water because without food and water you won’t survive, and because some children around the world eat nothing and have to starve.
I show that I am thankful by saying thank you when I get something . Another way that I show that I am thank is by doing my work. The last way that I so that I am thankful is by don’t wasting the food that I am given.

Yesterday the 20th of june, we had a successful person who came into our class to talk to us about his journey. His name is Alex and he is Miss Leaupepe friend’s husband. First we started with a prayer, then Alex our speaker talked about himself. Alex talked about his life and where he lived.
Alex is half Samoan and half Palagi, he was also lucky enough to study in England. To be able to study in England you have to apply for this scholarship which is called the Rhodes scholarship. Only three people a year get to go to England so Alex was lucky enough to have that opportunity.
When he came back from England he worked for Trade Me for 3 years. Now he is working at the gym which is called Les Mills. Alex said that he was going to travel to America next month to go around the different gyms. He also showed us pictures of England and where he lived.
When he finished talking about his life, we had to asked him questions. I asked him how many countries that he has been to, and he said that he has been to 30 countries. At the end we took pictures with him. I can’t wait for our next speaker because I like learning more about being successful. My favourite part from his visit was him talking about Wellington and his school.

My class was lucky enough to get a visit from Jonny Wartman. He is originally from Christchurch. He talked to us about graffiti and how he got started his career. He said when he was a little boy he loved cartoons. Jonny said that there weren't that much graffiti around where he lived. He found out about graffiti when he was a teenager. Some of us asked him questions. I asked him what he has succeeded in and he said he has succeeded in having a daughter and being able to create. Then we went outside then he got a big piece of paper then he talked to us about graffiti. He said that he went around the world to do graffiti but he didn't get paid to go around the world.
Then he started to spray onto the piece of paper and he created a beach. I like it how he mixed up different colors
together. Then in the end when he finished the picture sprayed on the picture SPX. My favourite part from his visit was him creating the picture and him mixing up the different colors. I can't wait for our next visitor because I love finding about our visitors and their journey. When our next visitor comes I want to ask him/her more questions, and I want to learn more about them.

Circle the gifts that the Holy Spirit brings people at Baptism
belief in God the Bible the Eucharist hope in God
faith makes them sons and daughters of God help to live with the love of Christ
Match column one with column two
Original sin -weakened human nature
Personal sin- knowing yet choosing to do something wrong
Faith - Whakapono- helps people know and love Go
Hope - Tumanako-helps people trust in God’s goodness
Look up these Scripture references in the Bible and match them with the sentence that best fits the text
* You can know the Spirit because the Spirit lives with you and is in you.
*Since you are children God has sent the Spirit to live in you.
1 Corinthians 6:19
* Your body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit - Te Wairua Tapu.
Finish these sentences:
To be a child of God means to be in his family and to be welcomed to a community
The Holy Spirit helps people to Choose the right choice and to follow Jesus footsteps.
One way children can show love - aroha is by loving their parents and going to church.
This Week we have been looking at water and its ability's. We had to chose a animal that lives under water, I choose a seal because I thought it would be very interesting to find out about a seal. We had to choose five questions. Then we had to answer those questions. I hope you enjoy my presentation about Seals:)

My highlights from this week was having health professionals come in to speak to us. There names were Teresa and Clint, they work with children with their health and they talked to us about the different types of health professionals that you can work as. Another highlight from this week was swimming because on Wednesday was our last day of swimming and we had loads of fun with Jillian our instructor.
My lowlights from this week was not being able to swim again because I love swimming and we always learn new things. Another lowlight from this week was our Math strategy with our multiplication because some of it was confusing and hard.
What I'm looking forward to is learning new strategies with multiplication and learning new facts about water and what it can do.
This week the strategy I have learned is using compensation and place value to solve timetable problems. Here is an example of how to use it.
1 camel eats 29 bales of hay altogether each week. How many bales of hay would 9 camels eat? First what I would do is figure out how to solve the problem. So the equation is 9 times 29.
First of all I have to figure out what 9 times 30 is. 9 times 30 is 270 now I have to figure out what 9 times 29 is. You have to take away 9 from 270 which is 261.

On Wednesday the 5 of June I got to participate in going to the Netball tournament. First of all when I got to school I had to change into my netball uniform. After that Miss Leaupepe talked to us about what was going to happen when we got to the netball courts.
Then she split us into groups, the first group got to go with my dad and the rest went with Miss Leaupepe.
Later on we arrived at the netball courts, we saw lots of other schools warming up. When the others arrived we had to wait for a while for the games to start.
My dad and Mafu looked after the year 6 team, Miss Leaupepe looked after the year 5 team and Ella looked after the year 7 and 8 team. When everyone was at the netball courts we had to go with the people who were going to look after us.
Our very first game, the team that were going to play us were not there so we won that game.
My highlights from the netball tournament was playing with other schools and watching our school play as well.
I loved going to the netball tournament because it was very fun playing, something else that I enjoyed was watching my sister play for the first time. The next time I get chosen to play for the team, I would love to play other positions.

On Wednesday we were lucky to have a visit from Nickson who works at Mai FM. He talked to us about his childhood and how he achieved his goals. We were lucky enough that we got to be on the radio. First Nickson asked us questions, then he chose someone to speak on his phone. He said that there is a new app, you can speak on the radio with this app. All you have to do is press the recorded button then it will go all the way into the station, and the person there will press a button and you would be live on the radio. After he finished recording us we got to ask him questions. When everyone was finished asking him questions, he pulled out CDs, posters and stickers. All the posters and stickers were ours, but Miss Leaupepe is going to choose 5 people to get CD and 4 people to get free clothes. After that we had a picture with Nickson.
What I liked about Nickson’s visit was him asking us questions because we got to be on the radio. I can’t wait for our next visitor!.
