Mmmm, spring rolls! By Kayla

Image result for spring rollsOn a bright and beautiful day, I had my guitar class at Tamaki Primary where they teach kids how to play musical instruments. Once my alarm went off I tried to stop it before it became louder. Then I got ready as soon as my mum had woken up. After that my mum,grandma,dad and I had breakfast of bacon and eggs on toast (yummy).                                                                   Later on, when it was around 9:50 my mum dropped me off to guitar lessons. While my mum was driving, I saw a bunch of people playing rugby at Dunkirk park, I saw one person kick the rugby ball as high as the sky tower. Then we parked at my guitar class. I said, "Bye" to my mum and went in. After a couple of minutes I saw Launoa and Akesa so I said "Hello" to them. We started of with sitting in a big circle, so we all could play A,B,C and D.                             Then my teacher taught us how to play the power chords D,A and C. It was really hard at first but I got it when my teacher showed me an example of the power chords. We added all the power chord together so it could be a song. Sadly it was time to go, but at least I could share it to my family and friends.                  When my mum and I got home we watched the British bake off, it was the finals. They each baked a cake so the judges could taste it. The winner was a girl named Ruby. After a while, I helped my uncle make spring rolls. We first unwrapped the spring roll pastry and rolled it with beef and veges. While my uncle was making the spring rolls, I made raw egg yolk to seal the pastry so the rolls will stick together. However we ran out of spring roll pastry, I felt sad as if I was crying inside. Thankfully we had rice paper so we used that to wrap the left over beef and vegetables.  Today was awesome because I learnt new notes,songs and chords. My favourite part was making spring rolls with my uncle because it was really yummy.

Can we go to Denny's again? By Philomena

WALT: understand and use descriptive language.


Success criteria: I know I can do this when I use appropriate adjectives, adverbs and verbs in my writing.

      On Saturday my friends, mum and I went to Denny's restaurant  at Manukau to have dinner.
When we arrived there, the car park was completely full and the rain was falling fast
After ten minutes of looking for a spot, a car  was leaving so we hurried to the parking space. Finally we got to get inside where it was nice and warm. As we waited in a very long queue, a receptionist gave numbers to people for their table.
       As we waited, another lady randomly gave us a number, she was very kind. A waiter greeted us with a big smile on her face, then she asked us for our orders. I picked fish sticks with gravy and potato mash, my mum picked steak with potato and vegetable salad and my friends picked spaghetti bolognese with meatballs and garlic bread.
       After she had jotted down our orders, we waited and waited. Several minutes later our waiter brought our food, we prayed then we ate. We weren't scared or ashamed to say our prayers in public because we are proud to be Christians. When we finished shoving the last piece into our hungry mouths, we were extremely full.

We got to pick our toppings so I had hot fudge, and my mum and friends had plain chocolate. After each bite I felt like a big balloon was going to explode any minute.
   Finally we got to go home.
However I wished that is was not raining and that I didn't eat that much because the day after that I was still feeling full.
 At least I had enjoyed it!

Have you watched the movies Pixels and Inside out before? By Shivay

Image result for inside out


 On Sunday my sister and I watched two movies on my grandpa's pc, because my sister wanted to watch Inside out. We went on a movie website called viooz which had a lot of movies.

I clicked Inside out, and we watched it together. It was a very cool movie because there were some people in a girl's heart that were named after the emotions. Their names were Joy, Disgust, Fear, Anger and sadness. Inside the heart they made lots of memories in a round ball called a memory core.

After Inside out, we watched Pixels. It was about pixels from different games that were destroying the Earth. My favourite character was the giant PAC man , but I didn't watch the full movie because we were going to my auntie's house to have dinner.

When we got there we played on the playground that was across the road. My sister and I had fun on the swings because it made us feel as if we could touch the aeroplanes that were passing by.

Then we had to go back to the house because raining. After a couple of hours, my auntie came with my baby cousin that dances. However, he was tired, so he didn't dance for us.

After that we ate dinner, I had Nandos  and it tasted very nice because the chicken was juicy. My family ate a different kind of chicken that looked tasty and crunchy. After dinner, we went home so we could prepare our things for school, then we went to bed.

I enjoyed the day at my auntie's house and I hope when my baby cousin comes next time, we would be able to watch him dance.
