 On subtraction I kinda found it easy until the gold question.

My recount when I felt scared

Four years ago on February my mom took me to my first day of school to learn more and to make new friends also because I finished my preschool but I was so nervous to go so I stalled as much as I could.
  When we got there, we walked up to my class and I was just going back and forth next to the door not ready to go to class, but my mom just opened it and I take two steps in and I was so scared, so my mom told me to introduce myself I said “hi my name is Austin and i'm 5 years old” except I probably said the pronouncing wrong and I said it so shakedly like I was freezing cold. 
The next person that I remember seeing was Tonga he introduced himself to me and it made me feel a bit better about being there then the other students did the same it made me feel really happy. 
Hours later I started to make friends with them like Tonga and Cree-ann and when it was the end of school I ran up to my mom when she was there and said”I had such a great day. 
Now remembering it, it was one of the most rememberable day’s of my life.

My term 4 blog intro

Talofa lava followers on my blog. Todays name for the term is art so we're gonna be learning about art based stuff like we're gonna learn about creating art with detail,shades,frames and multiple lines. I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS TERM CAUSE I LOVE ART ITS SO FUN. Mostly cause I find it satisfying and relaxing. Stuff I know about art is because a lot of the time I draw and watch videos that inspire me to draw and help me draw. The things that our going to hold me back are The start of the terms work. I think staying focused could help me. My goals are to stay at the levels where I am and get things done so past things don't hold me back. My teachers could help me to understand the hard stuff. Maybe this term would be a bit easy because the terms topic is interesting to me. This term I feel a bit nervous since it’s the last term but also it’s exciting.

dmic 2 (last week) (UPDATE) 3

This task was very similar to the one before because are task was another puzzle deejay was our leader and we went to look for the messages by looking at the first one. all the messages were hidden under spots in an 8 by 8 grid. We followed the first message onto the second onto the second one and then when we got all of them we were wandering what letters to put in order but after some time later we figured it out and the secret message it was RESPECT.It was actually pretty easy besides trying to figure out the message.

 Here's a video explaining what happened and at the end the computer ended for no reason but what the rest I was gonna say was we glued the messages in the book in the order that said respect and then we were done :).
This is the grid. Yes I know it's bad.

dmic blog post

*sigh* this is our previous work it looks like this because we were thinking of restarting and using a new one but then ... well lets just say that we couldn't use it and it took so long because the text was useless all it said was (here's the code to the message) and it looks like this because since we were restarting tepileo thought we wouldn't need it.

How the digestive system works

Designing a sport

You will need this stuff to play it (20-2 medium sized cardboard boxes, a Paintbrush with some paint, some rope, a ball, a number of balloons to lift the box, something sharp to pop the balloon, oh and also another ball that can fit in your pocket or hand). You can play it Basically anywhere that you’re allowed to play in and has good or interesting hiding places, but it has to be possible to find it.You should have 2-4 Teams with players that can have at least 10 players or under. The game is cooperative because you need to find the boxes working as a team. It’s challenging because you need to keep the ball to stay in while playing. The instructions are 1. Each player has a cardboard box with a painted symbol and their teams colour.
2. Hide the boxes properly plus, if you want, attach balloons to them with rope to make them float and if you need to balance it put a small ball like a hand ball in it to weigh it3. The team needs to find each other’s teams boxes and they need to keep a small ball in their pocket, it must stay with you and if you lose it or someone steals it you’re out.
4.Whichever players that still have their balls in their hands and gets all the boxes first Wins and gets some juice boxes. The objective is that Each player has a cardboard box with a painted symbol and their teams colour plus, if you want, you can attach balloons to it with rope and if you need to balance it, put a small ball like a hand ball inside it to weigh it down. Then the team needs to find the other teams boxes and they need to keep a small ball in their pocket, it must stay with you and if you lose it or someone steals it you’re out. Whichever players still have their balls in their hand or pocket and gets all the boxes first wins and gets some juice boxes. :D.

My animation voiceover

This term were learning about movement and health and its called move ya body. I have showed me and my team playing rugby league I just decided it cause I play it. My animation shows me and my team getting fit playing a game of rugby league with lots of body parts movable because in rugby league you need your limbs like your legs to run, arms to tackle and to hold the ball and a body in case you fall. It's important to make lots of body parts. In a nutshell my animation shows me playing rugby league with some of my team.

Arthur Lydiard and Peter Snell comparison and incomparison

Writing narrative NOT FINISHED

Ch 1. A mysterious capture 

On one fine sunny day when everybody was enjoying themselves, in the avengers tower they were making jokes. Outside the avengers tower was a robber trying to steal money from a bank and captain america spotted the robber and he warned the avengers so they went outside to capture the robber but when they saw him he was already captured but no one saw who captured him. After a day all they could think or talk was about who captured the robber.

Ch 2. A helpful hand vs a vengeful destroyer

Well on one good side the avengers found the hero that captured the robber his name was Acer and his hero name was the onix he made these cool gadgets inspired from the avengers

Well they start fighting each other and the avengers get some more heroes to come along and they start beating the villain but then the bad guy sends more bad guys start coming and they start knocking out the heroes

deadlock comes up to one of the heroes but then that hero trips him and blasts him out of existence and then he gets this button thing that was in his pockets and presses it then it disables all the bad guys

They are not finished and some sentences are not

My reading task


Hauora is a Maori word that describes a person’s overall health and well-being. The four dimensions of hauora are often displayed as the four walls of a whare, which provides stability and strength.

The four dimensions are: Physical well-being or health,mental well-being,social well-being and spiritual well-being, these four dimensions can show a person's health. Mental and physical health can mean your overall health and the other ones I forgot what those mean.

In conclusion, Hauora is a Maori word that can show a person’s health and well-being. The four dimensions of hauora can be often displayed as the four walls of a whare. 
The reason why its so short is because I didn't get enough time.

Fia fia recount

On Thursday at 5:30 the hole school was going to have Fia fia in the field and everybody was excited to perform. First we went to our group classes to get changed into to our performance cloths then we all lined up and went to the Fia fia. Well we followed the bright yellow line we went on the super big mat and waited for our turn in the cold windy outside well watching the other performance. Later on it started raining but Mr Burt kept on because he knew we were tough but some people got really cold and other people were wearing blankets and sharing. After minutes of waiting waiting it was finally our turn and we went into the waiting line thingy, I was so nervous but also I was excited as soon as I knew it it was our turn and as I got I heard so much cheering that made me feel less nervous. As the music started we all started dancing and I was feeling so sweaty while we were dancing and when our performance ended I was relieved and the I went to the hall and went back home.

There was a man named James and he woke up early to have a race so he got ready and went to the race. When he got there he went in the plane like the other racers and the starter person said “on your marks get set…. Go” and the blast into the sky.  In the race they were over taking James but luckily James sped up and took the lead but racer 4 bumped him and James spun out of control he turned and hit him back and as all the racers were zooming across the track there were airplanes in the sky so they went lift right up down until there were no more airplanes in the sky. The fuel was going low the engine was roaring and the rugged wheels were burning all of the racers were hoping for victory but as they got further the bursted out a flame of anger as they saw clouds and birds so they dodged the birds and they were looking for the right way as they nearly got lost in the misty clouds. They were going for the finish line as James engine broke down and he fell down all the planes were approaching the finish line and surprisingly he landed safely in the finish line and the other racers came after him and as they were stomping their feet and being steamy like sore losers James said something that made them feel better he said “getting there isn't what matters it's the journey” and he went home.

Dictation race

Today we were doing a dictation race I had a Chromebook and Heimata told me the things on the tv and this is what she told me. (Today was meant to be the day picnic!  Sadly it was raining today which meant we couldn't go Ms West had packed her hat sunblock and towel. Hopefully we will get to go to the picnic later in the term as it is nice to go swimming and enjoy the sun at our very own beach) out of this.

Today I will show you what respect means and how to use it. Respect is a big word based on all the various ways to use it. Respect can be made by caring for the environment like picking up rubbish. Respect can also be made by using a simple greeting like “good morning” because even though it may sound small but just so you know little can be huge. Not using respect can make big consequences like if you don't pick up rubbish or throwing it on the ground the earth could be polluted and die.

About me

Hello and Talofa lava. My name is Austin and i’m 8 years old and i’m a year 5. I am in room ten with my teacher Miss west. I have fun hanging out with my family or playing mini golf with them ……. I’m incredibly good at it. I do lots of sports like swimming, touch and rugby. I've played rugby for 3, 4 or 5 years and I also do coding. at coding there’s these little coding games called edmo and code monkey. It helps us learn to code. The reason why I wanted to sign up was because I wanted to build a robot when I’m older. I don't like hurting people because I’m more of a nice person. I like people knowing myself so I want to tell you a story that happened

I was on a playground and there was this mean tall kid that was bullying a smaller kid and I told him to stop and he ran away. I found him again but then he punched my face it was worth it and it didn't hurt that much really. After that my friend Sione helped me find him again and we put him on detention.
