Culture Groups!

Every Friday everyone from years 5 - 8 go to their culture groups to practice their traditional dances. There are four groups and they are Tonga, Samoa, Maori and Cook Island. I'm in the Tongan group.

We are doing two dances. One is called the Sipi Tau. The Sipi Tau is the rugby league haka for The Mate Maa Tonga Rugby League Team.
The other dance is Kailao. The Kailao is a warrior stick dance that tells what happened in World War II. My favorite dance is the Kailao because it shows how strong and fierce we are.

Movie Film Festival

On Wednesday we went to the film festival and we watched movies that other people from other schools made. We also made a movie as well and I enjoyed making It. My favourite movie was Be Friendly by Pt England because it had a great message in it and was very entertaining.

Armistice Day Presentation!

last week we did a slideshow about Armistice Day.

We were split into groups and my partners were Riiana, Konzay and Mary. First we made a slideshow and we asked questions like "what is Armistice Day". We did a lot of research about Armistice Day and I really learn't a lot about it. It was very interesting.

The Exam!

17/10/18 Wednesday

On Wednesday I flew down to Palmerston North to sit an exam. I was very nervous after seeing over 100 boys there.

The principal introduced himself to us and then took us to the gym. When we were in the gym we sat at a desk that had our name and school name on it. When everyone was seated the principal gave us instructions and advice for our test before we started.

The test was so long that it took nearly one hour for each test. There were four subjects, math, reading, reasoning and writing. I tried my hardest and got through a lot of the questions. I think the hardest subject was reasoning because there were some problems in there that I have not learnt yet but hoping to learn it at that school.

After the exam I waited outside for my uncle and then went home.

Image result for Tonga flag imageIn the Holidays I went to Tonga with my nana to visit her family. She wanted to visit her brother who passed away in 2017. In Tonga we slept over her sisters house with her sons and her daughters. I hung out with my cousin. He is 14 years old and I'm taller than him. We have a lot in common such as gaming and singing (well I like to listen to songs and him singing) and we also hang out with my uncles' son who is my nana's brothers' son. We liked to go to the shop to buy credit so we can buy data for the phone to watch YouTube videos and play games.

When my nana's family arrived we all went to the graveyard to visit her dead brother. After that we went back home and just talked and played games.

And that was what I did in Tonga.
