Fia Fia Retell

Guess What? Last week, On Thursday the 7th of April 2016 we had our annual Fia Fia. During school we were getting called out to go and practise for tonight. I was so excited. Once school was over, everyone went home and people were setting up their stalls for when people came back. The stalls had food and desserts on it so that people could have their dinner at school. All of the stalls opened at 4pm. At 4pm people started to show up and buy their dinner for tonight. There was a lot of food to be sold. At 6pm we had to go to our Holding/Changing rooms. So, when the clock hit 6pm, Mr Burt told us that we needed to go to our Holding/Changing rooms to get ready. Everyone rushed to their Holding/Changing really really fast.

At 7pm all of the fia fia groups went to sit on the mat and the MC's Introduced Mr Burt and said a karakia/prayer. After that they had announced who was going to open us up with the very first performance. It was the Yr 5 - 8 Kapa Haka Group. They were super duper loud. It was amazing. Next up was The Rock Band. They sang a song called Sweet Child Of Mine. I enjoyed it. Especially, the guitars and drums in the background.

My group performed after The Jump Jam group. We were the 11th group to perform. I was feeling really nervous. My dad and my step brother were watching me from the side of the stage. We went on slowly, trying to follow the beat of the song that was playing. I made a few mistakes, but dad told me to just keep on going and don't worry about it.

All of the performances finished at around 9pm. I was super super tired. So, I went home had something to eat and then I went to sleep.

Yr 5 Camp

First, I Nyree's blog and I read her camp retell. Here is a link to Nyree's Blog: So, in Nyree's 1st paragraph she was talking about how excited she was to be on camp, about how windy it was outside, so they had to sleep inside and how students that weren't on camp stayed in class and worked with a reliever.

In her 2nd paragraph she talks about the camp groups, their names and why the names of our groups were called what they are. The camp groups were, Kind'a Crazy, Kind Crushers, Kindonators, Kind Crew, Kind Kings and Queens and The Kind Legends. The reason why they are similar group names is because our topic for this year is making kindness go viral.

After that she talks about the group that she was in and who the leaders were. Her group was The Kindonators and the leaders were Ajani and Samoa.  She also says that her team was the best because they participated in all the games and they also tried their best at everything.

Nyree's Camp retell was similar to mine. By about 6/10. Her retell was very interesting. She is a very good writer

Team JASPS MTV Extension

Ata Group MTV from Team 4 Pes on Vimeo.
This term for extension we had to create a MTV about The Pt England Way. This is he movie that I have created with a group of people for the past 5 weeks now. Hope you Enjoy.

Reflection: Our task was to create a movie about the Point England Way. The process of making this movie was a bit difficult as well. I put this movie together with 4 other people. Paige, Samoa, Sheales and Joshua. I enjoyed working with them to create this movie. I was also chosen to lead to group. I was nervous at first, but then my team mates knew what to do.
