Colour Poem

Purple tastes like a  blueberry on a hot summer day

Purple smells like the morning air before the sunrises

Purple sound like little blue birds singing on a bright sunny day

Purple feel like a calm afternoon

Purple looks like a the ocean when it sleeping


A lonely house that looked kind of brunet down, sat on a street thinking of all the place he’d go if he could move. Suddenly a miracle happened the lonely house had feet. So the house started walking up and down the street .

The house thought about the places wanted to go to. When he finished thinking he said I want to go and visit his cousin the Eiffel Tower. So he started his journey toward the Eiffel Tower.

The next day the lonely house arrived at Paris and got greeted by his cousin the Eiffel Tower. When the lonely house said hi he got no answer, the house thought that the Eiffel Tower was sleeping so he went away.

The next day the house felt that he miss his lonely street and was really tired he didn’t want to move any more so he set off to his lonely street again once he was at home he went to sleep and never moved again.

Tamarereti and the Taniwha

A long while back in time there lived a Taniwha at lake Taupo. The Taniwha liked to eat people passing by in their waka. That's why people feared to sail on Lake Taupo at night.

In the time of the taniwha there lived a boy called Tamarereti. One day he was really hungry so he went on his waka and started to do some fishing. After he caught three large fish he felt tired so Tamarereti fell asleep. While he was asleep the wind blew Tamarereti to the other side of Lake Taupo.

When Tamarereti woke up he found himself at the other side of the lake. Tamarereti was really hungry so he decided to cook some dinner. Tamarereti eventually got  worried about the taniwha because it was getting dark and that when the taniwha rises up from his hiding place and eats people. When Tamarereti was cooking his dinner he found some shimmering pebbles . Suddenly he got an idea. So he loaded them onto his waka and set off into the lake. As Tamarereti sailed the waka he threw the rocks in the sky.

When he got to his home Tamarereti went straight to bed and when he woke up he saw that Ranginui was standing before him. Tamarereti knew he would be punished, but instead Ranginui said his sky looked really beautiful. Ranginui asked if he could cast Tamarereti’s  waka into heaven so that we can remember this story for over generations.

Art adventure

Think of a day at school not being boring, it would be a dream come true. Super cool activities all on the subject ART. What if we could swap classes with our friends and   do all kinds of different activities. Well team three had a magical art adventure.

Painting and building all day long, going to three of your classes, we did amazing constructions to build and  paint and glue too. My favourite was when we went with Mrs Belt We made paper bricks and glued them onto a house.

A magical day with all of your teachers. Have fun in all of their art classes. With fire safe we did painting and we mixed some shades of brown together. I would love to have a magical art adventure again one day.


If you ever go to France and visit Paris then you will get a breathtaking view of the Eiffel tower. When the sun shine on the Eiffel tower it gleams over Paris. The Eiffel tower is really beautiful in the evenings.

The Eiffel tower has some steps and a elevator. The elevator takes lots of money, the price is about 40$. But the step is a lower price it takes 20$. If I ever go to Paris and am going up the Eiffel tower I would take the steps.


In Italy there is a city called Rome. If you ever go to Rome you might get to see the Colosseum. The Colosseum was built 2000 years ago. The Colosseum was also built for king  Caesar’s entertainment.

In the Colosseum there are underground tunnels. Inside The Colosseum there are people who have had terrible behavior and were told to fight people and animals of all kind. Most of the animals  were hyena, lions, tigers and bear, if there were people in the Colosseum they would be gladiators or prisoners.

One day an earthquake hit Rome and kind of destroyed the Colosseum. Did you know that the Colosseum is a tourist destination?
