Ana and Salote's Term 2 Poem

In term 2 we did a lot of things,
Writing and reading and we started to sing.

We dribbled the ball,
and we danced in the hall.

We ran around the school,
and we wrote lots, which was cool.

We cleaned up a little,
and we saw what we were on in levels.

Frank and Justin's Term 2 Poem

In term 2 we learned lots of things,
Writing and reading and learning to sing.

Orienteering was fun, we went outside,
Basketball and zumba all part of our life.

Just like Blue we looked for clues.
Next term we hope its all good news.

Ierei's Term 2 Poem

In term 2 I liked Zumba and learning about God.
We danced in the hall and I thought I looked odd.
We did lots of writing and all went to mass.
My writing was long but not very flash.
We learnt orienteering skills and some basketball
The teachers were great and we didn't all fall.
Our 3 way conferences are today.
I hope my mum won’t chase me away.

Frank's Imaginative Story

“Go and help your Dad in the gardens” shouted my Mum. I walked over to my Dad slowly and he shouted “I want you to dig a big hole until I tell you to stop, I’m going to make myself a coffee” “yes Dad” I whispered.

“I’m bored” I said to myself. But I have to do this so I dug and dug until I stepped in the wrong place and suddenly I fell and hit my head on a hard rock. I opened my eyes and I looked around and I saw small trees and very big grass all over the place and a volcano looking like it was going to erupt. I whispered to myself “where am I?” and a giant bee flew across my face. I was scared.

I saw a giant man and he had a big body with strong legs and arms, four arms and four eyes coming close to me. I got up and ran but suddenly I tripped on the rock that I had knocked my head on. The giant man picked me up and he whispered “who are you?” I whispered back “who are you?” and he answered “I’m Four Arms”. I answered back “I’m Robin, where am I?” “you're in the Mysteries Island?” Four Arms shouted. “where can I get out of this place?” I whispered to Four Arms and Four Arms yelled “here this is a golden compass”. The compass was shiny, golden and amazing. He threw me the compass and he said “where do you live, North or South?” I opened the compass and pointed the compass to North because we lived in North and suddenly my house appeared. I walked straight then I turned back to Four Arms and he yelled “goodbye” and I whispered back to Four Arms “goodbye”. I turned and I walked straight to my house.

As soon as I got back my dad came with his coffee and yelled “stop now you can have a rest, where did you get that compass?” and lied so I wouldn’t get in trouble and said “I found it over here” and sat down for a rest.

Pigeon Impossible Short Film

Last week Room 3 watched a short film called Pigeon:Impossible. It was a fantastic animated short film by Pixar. We watched this to help us understand the structure of a narrative. Each student then had to describe the plot, problem and solution that occured in the film. Here is what Kelly wrote........
Plot: In the story Pigeon Impossible there was a man who had a mysterious silver case in his hand but it was handed to him by an unknown person on the streets. He found a chair on the side of the road and he had a seat. Next a pigeon came flying down to him because he was eating his lunch which was a doughnut. The pigeon’s eyes were stuck on the doughnut for a while, but then he finally he went to try and get it. Walter did not let him have any, so the pigeon got angry then suddenly he saw the case and jumped in the case, he closed it and pushed a heap of buttons. 
The buttons in the case were actually weapons, then things got worse. Walter pushed the button that lead to the rocket so shooed the pigeon away and got the case. Walter had to fly up into the air and kill the rocket so it would stop. Before he blew it up the pigeon followed him up in the air as the doughnut was in his case, so he opened his case up and it dropped the doughnut and it fell through the clouds.  
After Walter had shot down the missile he also went down to the ground, but he didn’t fall he flew down. Walter got back to the ground then saw the Pigeon eating the doughnut. Walter walked away and next it was time for something bad to happen to the Pigeon, he got squashed by the part of the broken rocket.

Problem: The Pigeon wanted the doughnut, Walter couldn't get his case from the bird and the rocket was activated.

Solution: Walter got his case back form the Pigeon, Walter stopped the rocket by firing a missile at it, the Pigeon got squished.

Your opinion of the story: My opinion of Pigeon Impossible is that it was funny because something bad happened to the Pigeon for his naughty behavior.

Ilaisaane's Imaginative Story

In the morning my mum said to me to go and help my dad and help to dig a hole. I dug and suddenly I was falling down the big hole.

I opened my eyes and I saw the yummiest thing I had ever seen and there was candy everywhere. I saw that I was in candy land and I was so happy.

Suddenly I saw someone coming closer and closer. When he was close I saw he was all green. The eyes were blue and he was an alien and he was scary.

He put out his hand and I saw something and it was a present, it was a box. There was a glass ball with a feather floating inside it. He told me to go and keep this safe from the world. I went and put it under my bed so candy land would be saved.

Jane's Imaginative Story

“I need help here” Dad yelled, Mum called me to go and help. Once I got outside it was cold with a little bit of sun.
Dad told me that he needed a hole to plant his big tree so I knew when I dug the hole I would get warmer. I began to daydream because I had no one to dig with and the hole got deeper and deeper. I did not even think to stop digging. I looked back up to see that I was way too far from home. I yelled as loud as I could ”Can someone help me down here?“ but no one could hear me so I kept on digging sadly down by myself.

Suddenly I fell, I could not even see anything. I opened my eyes and said to myself “Where am I?” I looked around and felt something under my feet, I looked to the ground where my feet were, and the ground was squishy.

I was so lonely and there was no one with me. I talked to myself and ended up crying because I thought I was lost.

Suddenly a man came to me and said “who are you?” I told him my name and he said “my name is Jim-Jim”. I said “do you know where I am?”. He said “you are in Banana world”. “Banana world hahahaha“ I yelled, but it did not seem funny to Jim-Jim.

Jim-Jim was little and he had big feet, three eyes, one leg and two arms joined together and one head. Jim-Jim took me to this big house where trees grew really large. I looked around and there was candy and banana on the trees. I said to Jim-Jim “what do you call this kind of tree?” he said “In our language we call it candy cane banana trees”, “ooooooo” I said to myself.

At last he said to me “it time for you to go back home”. I sadly said “yes” before I went home Jim-Jim gave me a present to remember him. I looked to the present that Jim-Jim gave me, it was a little smooshy dog with a huge banana next to him. I said “thank you Jim-Jim” then I ran to go back home. I yelled “ goodbye Jim-Jim” and he said goodbye back to me.

When I got home I was next to the hole that I dug in my backyard. Then I went to my room and hid my present under my bed. I really enjoyed my day in Banana world and I hope that I could go there again.

Christopher's Imaginative Story

On a sunny weather day I was still in bed  then my Mum came and angrily at me and shouted at me to get out of bed. and said She “go and dig a hole at the back”.then i went to the back I started digging  deep hole.  I dug deeper and deeper. Suddenly the wind blew me down the hole. When I was in the hole I saw trees and buses and when I looked down to the sign it said Orange Mz.

Orange Mz had grass and cars everywhere.  It looked like a fun place.  

A big man walked past me, he was huge and he talked to me. He said “take this to your world”. He handed me a Bayblade, The Bayblade was round and it was hard and grey.  

I went back to my world and I kept it somewhere safe where no one would find it.

Simione's Imaginative Story

“Get up Simione” yelled my Mum. “Go and dig a hole for dad’s apple tree”.
“Okay Mum, I will do it when I get up”.
Mum got angry and she said to me “Hurry up before I get up and drag you out so you can do it”. So I got up and walked out of the house and went to the shed to grab my spade and start to dig. I asked myself “How long is this going to take?”

Suddenly I fell in this deep hole that took me to a world called Tonga. Once I landed. I saw the king of Tonga and he was so rich that I wanted to be like him. He said to me “Where are you from?” and I said “I am from New Zealand and I came here because I fell in this hole that I was digging, that is why I am stuck here with you”. I said to the king of Tonga “This place is a hot place, I would love a drink of water.” So king Misiotei took me to his house and gave me a drink. He said to me again “Take this crown to your place and I will know that you have it, Go now and hide it”.

I suddenly woke back up and checked that I still had the crown. I had it in my hand so I ran and hid it safely.
