My Weird Neighbours


On a cold night a light was shining right directly at my window and it shines on the wall and it keeps me awake all the time.


I awoke from my sleep and I looked outside the window to see where the light was coming from, it was my neighbours I said to myself “ what must they be doing at this time”. So I went to my sister Tokilupe she was sleeping so hard that I couldn’t even wake her up, I finally woke her up by pulling her off the bed, I told her “there is a strange light coming from our neighbours”. My sister told me lets go to your room and check it out so we went into my room and the light was still shining on the wall. Tokilupe said to me “I can hear a strange sound coming from the neighbours” I replied back to her “yeah you are wright “!. It must be a haunted house Tokilupe said to me and I said yes!!!. So we went together next door to see what where the light was coming from, my sister went to knock on the door and a lady answered the door she looked so scary that I wished that I never came here ever again. So I told her “can you please turn off your light because I am trying to sleep “ but the lady said to them “ we need our light on because our children is scared that there might be something in the house that is giving them the creeps”. So the lady said to them “ Ok I will try to off the light when they are sleeping “ Ok said Tokilupe and her sister so they went back to there house and when they went to bed and the next door neighbours light offed and Tokilupe and her sister were very surprised when the light turned off.


When Tokilupe and her sister was just about to go sleep the light just suddenly turned on again and Tokilupe and her sister said I thought that we told her to turn of the light and Tokilupe and her sister went over next door to see what was going on. They knocked on the door and the lady answered it again the lady said to them ooh you guys again, Tokilupe said to the lady I thought we told you to off the light.

Fact and Opinion Activity

Fact and Opinion

Six of these statements are opinions about features of John’s life, not facts.  Place ticks beside the six opinions.
When John Rutherford was six years old he was sent to work in a cotton mill.
He ran away to sea as a cabin boy when he was ten.
Going to sea was the beginning of a hard and adventurous life.
The life of a cabin boy did not suit John at all.
Later, when he was older, he was forced to join the crew of a British warship.
During one of his voyages he fell ill and was left in Hawaii.
Life was boring and dull in Hawaii with nothing to do.
When the next ship docked, he joined it and sailed to New Zealand.
During the voyage to New Zealand the ship was caught in the worst storm ever seen in the Pacific.
When the ship anchored in New Zealand waters, some Maori came on board.
The captain was too afraid to try and stop them.
A fight broke out and John was taken prisoner by the Maori.
After his capture, John had his face tattooed.
The tattooing hurt a great deal, but he lay still and quiet to show how brave he was.
After a time, John’s Maori captors made him a chief.

The Rosary

This week I was learning the Rosary because it was the month of Mary. I learnt that a whole 10 beeds is saying the Hail Mary, and teh small beds are the our Father, and the 3 beeds are also the Hail Mary. The cross Is the Glory Be, this is what I have learnt in Religious Education.

Smart Learner

By being a smart Learner you have to concentrate on the work you are doing, also you should always keep on the right track when it is time for you to be learning. You will have to obey the rules when it is time for learning. Listen carefully when the teacher is talking because you might not know what to do ,and when you go to start your learning you might have to go back to the teacher and ask her “what do I have to do?” You always have to use your virtues when you are working with another person instead of screaming to them when they are right next to you. Always have your stuff ready before you start learning, you always must have a pencil before you start doing your work.

Reflection Term 3

Learning Journal

Being a successful learner involves you being reflective about the learning process. It is about you identifying your strengths, weaknesses and areas you would like to improve in. Reflection just does not happen at the end of a task, it can be throughout a task.

3. What have you found easy this term?
What I found easy this term is my reading and my writing because I like to write something new each day.

4. What have you found tricky / difficult this term?
I found Religious Education tricky this term because it was quite hard drawing my pictures and answering my questions on the Google Doc that miss G had given to us.
The difficult thing this term was my maths because it was hard answering my 3 times tables, but know I know my tables because I sang the 3 time stabled song over and over again.
5. Who / what has helped you with your learning this term?
This term miss G and miss M has been helping me with my learning, also Ana and Sonya has been helping me with my work because they are sometimes the first ones to finish.

6. What could you change with your learning for next term?
Next term I will change my learning skills to listen carefully to my teacher so I can finish my set work the teacher has given to me.

7. What are your next learning steps to make you a successful learner for next term? My next learning steps for next term is to do my work instead of talking to my friends
