Reading In The Holidays

Reading in the holidays is a great thing to do in some time in the holidays. It can help you provide more confidence during the next rounds of Intermediate school. Fortunately , most of the kids in our school had the chance to read books from the Tamaki Digital Library . In the past few days, I have been looking at different ranges of books and they are really interesting. Like they say ' Don't judge a book by its cover ' and that's what I did.  Having to read in the Holidays can be really sensible for those who are sick or even when the weather is a little grumpy. 

2013 PrizeGiving!

Prizegiving is the day , where you get given awards and trophies for having an out standing year! It's full of cheer, items and happiness. Lucky me, I got not one but 'two' awards for 100% attendance and Ambassadors! It was a privilege going on the red carpet , confirming prizes and having to face the crowd on the stage. During the few weeks before Prizegiving we have been practicing our very own Year 6 item . We had 4 leaders who guided us through the dance :) They were, Meleane JordenneIronAna . We had a mix of 3 songs in 2 minutes! When we were performing it was really fun, going up to dance for our school .

Going Out GenGis

On my sisters birthday , my mom thought it was a great idea to go out for dinner. An idea came to her mind that we should go GenGis! Which is an Mangolian restaurant in New Zealand. Once we got there, there were a whole full of bright lights hanging down, the smell of CHICKEN and even some really huge smiles. We sat down and ordered our drinks. I sat there eagerly waiting for my mom, who was getting the cake. A few moments later , we found ourselves choosing a variety of foods. All of the meat was raw ! I got Marinated Chicken and pork on my plate and gave it to the chefs to cook . The steam made my eye really sore! The chicken and pork tasted A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! I stood up for a moment and got myself dessert. I stood in line waiting for the pancakes to full cook. Once it did, I went all crazy on the sauces! Chocolate, syrup, strawberry and vannila! It was too crazy . Wishing I could go back :)

2013 Reflection

Gold, Diamonds and Pearls. Of course they are the most precious things in the world , as others  define it! Netbook, Chromebooks, Ipads and Imacs have a million words to define it. In 2013 , more things have been looked forward to! Such as camp, tests, interviews and even working on our netbooks. Febuary the 4th marked the first day of school in 2013 and I of course knew that lot’s of thing were coming our way. No homework, Games every day and hardly learning. Thats so not what I had  expected.. The most things I was expecting this year was becoming an Ambassador! No lie, it was the most proudestt feeling this year. Travelling to Wellington and speaking to the IRD , was really scary and easy at the same time. I love being an Ambassador for my school because I think that you will always get a proud feeling!

Getting to work in a class with almost 100 students was the best highlight of the year! It has been a great progress working with different teachers in a certain time every 5 days. Like Mr Burt said ‘ Better Together! ‘ . In extension , we have also been working Better Together throughout making movies, writing scripts and for covering on P.E.N.N! All though we have had some rough times , the most difficult time in extension was having to miss out on making Labour Day Pizzas! Fortunately we got to write about it. It was amazing getting to learn about the history behind it!

To be continued . .

Camp Bentzon Day One # Take A Hike! # Early Birds

I woke up to a loud approaching noise coming among my ears. Suddenly I felt a quick breeze running down my spine, it was  cold. I tried opening my eyes, forcing them to open widely. I sat bolt up bright looking at the time ' 5:51 ' still time to get ready for camp. I cleaned up my bed and went to get ready. ' '6:35' , I turned on the computer , I shunned the computer light as it was shining against my eyes. I thought I didn't have enough time for the computer so I quickly went to school, with my day pack. I peeped through the school hall , only to see a crowd of campers. " Drink Bottles! " Chanted Ms Garden as I was chatting my friends. At that, something came in my mind. I forgot my bottle. " Go run and get it from home! " Shouted my friends. With  legs lazy as a sloth, I tried my best to run quickly to home. There, I spotted the bakery that was open. I fastened my pace and bought a water bottle. Making it back to school with destination, I saw more and more people arriving. 

To be continued . . . . .

The Unspoken Creature


In an unfamiliar land , where you’ve never been before, a secret is unspoken. Many tourist try finding out what the secret it is , but no evidence has been shown.  On a cold windy morning , a journalist named Nikolai was about to go on an adventure to unleash the secrets of this land. He was very smart , indeed he loved to ride bulls , and kill Animals. Nikolai is very weird human! The sea glistened to the morning sun as he sailed to the land. It was very beautiful. Tree’s as long as a tower and grass thats greener than ever. He was speechless. Nikolai jumped off the boat and gazed at the lovely nature. “ Wow, this is just j-j-just paradise! “ He said as he jumped around the forest. Out of sight , he spotted a door! Old and really rusty, ugh , something you can’t see mostly everyday. “ I am a journalist, and I should be tough enough to open that door! “ He confirmed as he stomped on the front door steps.

He opened the door as it made croaky noises . “ H-h-h-hello? “ He said silently. Nikolai wasn’t really fascinated by the house. It had old cracked photo frames and dusty bookshelves and the floor was crowded by spiders. “ What are you doing h-h-here? “ Suddenly a voice was heard. Nikolai turned around, he reached for the door , but it was already locked. He felt shivers coming up his spine, he sat down listening to the whisper saying all sorts of things like: “ What’s your name?” “ Why are you here? “ It was getting on his nerves. Slowly , he stood up quietly , still not having a notice of who was speaking. He went upstairs and saw lots of wheelchairs and skeletons. Not usually something you see everyday.   “ Go back down! “ The whisper cried. Unexpectedly a large drawer stumbled down the stairs as it was chasing after Nikolai .



Nikolai breathed heavily in relief. He got his notebook and wrote down some notes of what was happening. “ Who are you? “ Nikolai questioned. Without a sound .  . .  a unfamiliar creature had come out . It was stunning , it had long wavy hair , green skin and purple lips . Suddenly Nikolai fell into a deep . . . sleep. Nikolai sat bolt up bright , wondering where the creature had went. Nikolai was still locked in the house. He cried for a bit. He was cold and hungry, he reached for his pocket , only to find a little crumbs of biscuit. Nikolai was hopeless! “ Help! Anybody! Whisper? Speak again! Tell me how to find a way out! “ He begged. Nikolai , wiped away his tears and tried cracking the windows. It was a fail. The windows were impossible to break.

Nikolai suddenly heard tea cups clattering. “ Huh? “ He wondered who was making that sound, he looked around still scared and hungry. “ Here . . . “ the creature came back , still beautiful. She handed him the cup , very carefully. “ This will keep you hungry and thirsty no more! “ She continued as she sat down along with him. She gazed , at his eyes , very sad.  She felt sorry for him. Nikolai drank the tea sip by sip. “ I need to get out of here! “ Nikolai cried. The lady planted her hands on the handle of the cup . Nikolai saw that she grew tears in her eyes. Nikolai soon found out

The Evil Farmer

On a warm foggy morning, a family feast was planned at Kim Tan’s house. Kim Tan thought that corn would be best to put on the table. He went out into the hot sun and went into the shed. With no notice, Oteira was spying on Kim Tan, to see what he was up to. Oteira always had something evil to do in mind. “ Aaah , here it is “  Kim Tan said as he picked up a few small packets of corn seeds. He started digging the mud out and started planting the corn seeds. While watering the plant , Oteira found his way to sneak in and put more seeds in and a tint of potion. Kim Tan finally had his break and had a snooze in the middle of his plants that were growing .

After 10 minutes of sleeping, he gave a loud yawn. He woke up in the middle of nowhere! “ Wha-wha-wha? What happened? “ He looked around confusingly . “Hello!” He gave one big shout , no response. Kim Tan sat down for  a minute and thought about who did this . “ Oteira? No it must not be. But I am mostly thinking . . .. it is him!” Kim Tan knew who it was but not most of the problem was yet solved. Kim Tan grabbed something from the ground he ‘thought’ would be a machete , but as he touched the ground , it was , it was . . . .  gone! How could it be, he must’ve lost it! He was in total rage, he was too jaded of playing games. He looked around searching and searching. No sign. “ Hello! “ He gave one loud shout.   “ Yikes! Woah , calm down mate! “ A very unfamiliar voice was spoken. Kim Tan turned around , and saw a scare crow ‘ speaking ‘ .  “ Yeah, keep your voice down! Hey . . . your Kim Tan, Oteira had always wanted to destroy your farm” Kim Tan was very curious about this . “ I used to be her best friend, until she wanted to be alone and she cast a spell on me” The crow continued.

“ I knew it ! She was always suspicious about things that are related to my farm! “ Kim Tan claimed.
“ How do I find my way out of here?” He questioned the scare crow. He turned around and the crow was gone. “ Hello?” Kim Tan said. Kim Tan thought he was a trick. Suddenly, he heard little murmuring from the back. Until he saw . . . the weepers! Kim Tan gave one loud gasp, he saw that they were taping the  scare crows mouth, because they thought that he would tell Kim Tan.  Kim Tan found his machete beside him all tangled up in a plant. He grabbed it and shooed the weepers away. “ Please tell me how to get rid of this! Please” Kim Tan begged to the scare crow. “ Underneath the soil is a glowing root, you will need to cut it “ The scare crow explained. “And it will also make me go back to human again! “ He continued.

Kim Tan followed the instructions and their vision went black and they could see some flashes shining. Then it went back to normal and everything came back again. Also the corn’s were ready. Oteira saw what happened and was furious. Kim Tan called him on the cops and they arrested him. “ Want to join us for dinner?” asked Kim Tan. “ Sure “ said Jack ( The scare crow) It was a lovely dinner. “ Eat the corn!” Said Kim Tan , Jack gave one bite . “ It tastes much better than Oteira” “ Well you always got to expect the unexpected “ And then they lived happily after.

About Taxes

  video
video

I have been learning and researching about Taxes and IRD ( Inland Revenue Department ) with Miss Wood. We have learnt a lot as ambassadors. This is part of our trip to Wellington because we are very lucky to speak to the IRD members.  I got to learn a lot new things such as, what happens if you don't pay your taxes.  Did you know that the government collects money from those who have jobs? 


                                                               About Taxes
Taxes are money that is given to the government. The government spends the money on good things like for example, Education, Students Loans and Social Security and Welfare.  The government collects the money from the people in New Zealand who have jobs. Some other countries, like Dubai do not even pay taxes , because a king is living there and he is really rich. Student Loans are part of taxes as well. Students ask the government if they can “ borrow" the money. 

Churches can be related to collecting taxes because they collect money from the members from the church and this is used to help the church.   If no-one paid their taxes there may be a chance of going to court.   

If someone leaves the country without re-paying their taxes they will be penalised. 

Ever heard of GST? GST stands for good services and tax. GST is when a shop, gives 15% of money to the government. For example , if you're going to buy a shirt and it costs 50 dollars  , some of the money doesn’t go to the shop, it goes to the government.

Hansel And Gretel! Island Style!

Here is a narrative I have previously wrote for an extension task. Our task was to write a known fairytale but to give it an Island/ G. I twist. We had lot's of fun doing this overall. Of course, I chose Hansel And Gretel! But instead I did Leli and Taro! I hope you enjoy!

Leli and Taro, were very obedient  to their mother who was always giving orders to them, their father died from a previous car accident . Ever since, they have been always eating Bunkeke all the time,  each day they will always feel sick because of the oil inside.One day , Leli  overheard his mother and  heard her say that she was abandoning  the kids in the village far far away so they could never find their way back! Leli told Taro but she thought that he was just over acting the whole thing. she told him to just relax. Taro and Leli were sleeping by then , until they heard jandals flapping.  They were frightened! “ Sau, ta wo le night market” The evil stepmother said. She was actually tricking them.
“Ok” replied taro. “Don’t it’s a trick we’re not even going night market eah “ Leli said.
“If you guys DON’T come I will put you to sleep in the garden. “ Interrupted the mum. She pulled their shirts up and went down into the forest. Taro sobbed bitterly. She was jaded of living with her mother only wishing her dad came back. Their mother murmured an excuse and then took off laughing evily. “ I should’ve trusted you!” Taro said. “Shh” “Whaat?” “Shhh, look at that house” They now saw a corned beef house with the knob covered in corn beef juice. “We have not had this since dad went” declared Taro. “i know , it was the most precious thing that we ate.

“ They went inside the house and started eating the plasters of the wall, the table , the spoons and even the chair. When Leli was about to eat the door , the door creaked open and an ill- fated Witch appeared. She had a greasy mole on her head and had acene all over her face. “ Well , well , well , who are these little grease tooth children?”  The Witch was reaching for something suspicious on the beef book shelf. “ You must try this delicious golden corn beef “ she continued. Slam! A cage unexpectedly trapped them. “ Mwahahahhahahah! Welcome to my trap, where I keep all the kids to mix them and roast them. She pointed to two familiar pig heads. “ You see that? that was Hansel and Gretel , not anymore they are piggy and tiggy “ She explained.

The Witch grabbed Leli’s head and started sniffing all over it. “ AHA! I knew you would be delicious! “ She hauled him outside of the trap. “ You my lady , are going to be my cleaning maid, thats right! clean up all the grease and turn it into a candy house for my next meal to come in, start with the sweeping! “  She demanded.  Taro grabbed a broom, while doing that she looked carefully at what the witch was going to do to her brother. She saw the witch tieing him up and placing an apple in his mouth. With unexpectation Taro pulled Leli back and gave one big powerful thrust to the witch and into the oven.

Taro untied him and got rid of the apple. “ Thank you! “ Said Leli . “ It’s alright , i’m sorry i did-” Taro was cut off by a pile of yummy piled food. It was stacked up from floor to ceiling , “ This is what she probably uses to track down kids ! right?” asked Leli. They went back and forth taking piles of food to their house and guess what? They found out that their mother has been arrested for Child Cruelty. And so they lived happily ever after!

Understanding Road Safety

In the mornings you may be familiar with a big orange neon lollipop. Also kids wearing the same coloured vest as the lollipop. " Patrol's"  or  "Patrolers " are the name of it. They take part in keeping children and adults safe and sound. Each year some kids volunteer to take part in the crossing patrol for their school. It is an important part of the school and community. I have been doing patrols for a year and a half now, and it is good to know that the children are safe. Each morning the patrolers have to get going to school before 8 o 'clock , I find it as disaster but know what my job is and how it is done.

Not just the lollipops , but the big traffic buttons . These buttons cost a lot of pounds and I'd prefer you use it carefully. The patrolers will be there. When pressing the buttons and in the rush , please don't press them too much because they find it hard to focus on the road. The buttons are not used for kicking or for karate , they are used to press! I hope you understoood the Road Safety!

Halloween Plans!

For Halloween I decided to celebrate it with my best friend , Angel. As she is going to be Superwoman and I will be a Minion from Despicable Me. We were talking about it today as we were walking back home. I told her it was easy , just get some yellow tights and yellow beanie and sleeve top and pair it up with  a dungaree and set. And also wear black shoes. We are going to do out trick or treating at a very nice place where we always go each five years since we've been friends. All though she will help me. And then we were talking a little bit about Christmas and told her I wanted High-knee kitten socks, cause I thought they were too cute!

Kinder Bueno


An old-school favourite of mine is the chocolate " Kinder Bueno " filled with joy. The packet contains not one but ' two' bars of chocolate. I love the smooth yummy milk inside it and the patterns on top of the chocolate is just really cool. Kinder Bueno can come in all sorts of flavours . You may be familiar with the word " kinder " right. Like " Kinder Surprise ? " .

Stairway To Heaven

Stairway to heaven is a Korean Drama Movie. It is based on a girl named ( Hon-Jong-Su) who has a really nice friend named ( Shon- jong) together they both find their way through life. Hon-Jong - su lived with her stepmother and Father. The stepmother bought her poor kids to the rich house. Their names were " Hon-Yu- Li" and " Hon- De- Huan" . The stepmother was very jealous of Jong- Su getting higher grades then Yu-Li. I can't give the rest of the story out. I recommend you should watch it!It has offically been known as my favorite movie EVER!!

Minions!


Minions are very smart and cute . In fact, Minions are really popular right now. "What are Minions?" You may ask. Minions are little cute cartoon characters  in the Movie Despicable Me. I think that they have a hug personality and a very big brain. I think that they are very cute 100% . My favourite thing about them is their language , did you know they speak banana language. Now that is very smart! The banana song has gone Viral and I think it's very cool and entertaining :)

Vines


Vines are VERY popular now . Vines are six or seven second video's made by thousands 'national' some say that a Vine that went really Viral was "Don't drop that durka durk" in re-creating Finnaticz song " Don't drop that thun thun " I can't believe such talent can be shown in 7 or 6 second wow! Here is a video introducing you to the app. 

Getting Ready For School

Here is a few things that I think every child should do when it comes to school. If you don't understand leave feedback please!



1. Wake up and clean you bed you don't want to come back to a messy bed do you?

2. Have a nice fresh clean shower! Wash all the dirt away from you and all those little drawing marks on you. 

3. Get ready! The night before you go to school , iron and hang your clothes. Put a bit of deodorant and fragrance on

4. Fix and style! Fix up your hair, make sure it's clean and tidy and that it lasts long also get a pair of shoes that you are comfortable with. I prefer doing all of your collars up to make you look really smart in your thinking.

5. Have a good breakfast!  If you wanna make a yummy healthy breakfast , I have previously made a post about it, be free to check it out.

6. Preparation! Make sure you got everything you need like permission slips , homework , net book and even lunch. 

7. Make the most of your day at school and have fun!

Going To The Auckland Vs Canterbury Game @ Eden Park

On the 28th of September , the Yr 5 & 6 rugby team got to go to Eden Park. It was a really cool experience going to the game and cheering for the blues. My favourite moment was when every time a blue scored a try the crowd would always stand up and go wild, or as they say in New Zealand " The crowd goes wild!" The worse moment was when we all spent half of our money on expensive hot chips, but it was still worth the taste. Guess who won? THE BLUES! We were very happy and proud of them. The most memorable moment was when Sela , Quasia , Elizabeth, Rowana and the others faces were showing on the big screen! I'm sure that moment was memorable to them too. ( The photo happens to be legal, all credits and all rights to the owner)



 

Bucket List

Here is only a " quarter " of things on my bucket list. I  have a really big list.

1. Go to America

2. Audition for new things to entertain others

3. When my hair grows 'really' long , cut half of it and send it to cancer charity.

4. Open a YouTube channel at a standard mature age

5. Go to all my idol's concert

6. Meet the tallest person in the world ever

7. Build my own tiny shed 

8. Go TO ITALY!!

9. Give lots of money to charity and to the Animal Cruelty charity

10. Finish school

Using your " W.I.T.S "

Everybody has been taught this and need this. In school one of our topics were using your W.I.T.S , they are very important and everybody needs to learn this , because you might go back to school with a really bad term.

W.I.T.S

WALK AWAY! 
 (If someone is bugging you are bullying you , get all the words out of your mind and deny what their saying and avoid it and just walk away)

IGNORE IT!
( This is similar to Walk Away. If they are saying things that put you down and that really hurts your feelings , just ignore and take it out your head)

TALK ABOUT IT!

( If there is something that you are really uncomfortable with Talk about it! Tell that person/people about your feelings and emotions about it )

SEEK HELP!!

( If there is something serious going on like a fight , call a teacher or and adult and there it will be sorted. Calling an adult makes a big difference . )

They may be 4 letters but they make a big difference. I think this should be learnt in every school, in every country and to everybody . 


Happy Birthday!

I would just like to say a BIGG FFAAATTT HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my brother Uoka Jr Falefa. Thank you through out all these years for looking after me and always caring for me. I hope you have a awesome few days at Boot Camp. And guess what? You're going to Sydney Australia next week as a present from one of your friends. Hope you have a great week over there. 18 is a really big number and I hope its a great one for you. I hope you like the yummy cake we bought you today. May you be blessed upon with the spirit and health :)

Style It Up #2

I am now focusing on Patterns in style. I love patterned clothing A LOT. Since it's the summer, I wanted to " Mainly " focus on all kinds of patterns. I hope you enjoy them!

       Floral and Lace:
Floral dresses are great for the summer , they actually kinda cheer me up. The flowers on the dress are very nice and goes really nice on anyone. Lace is a very popular trend , laces can be shown in any patterns like, laced flowers, laced roses , laced hearts and even more. 


Galaxy Print

Galaxy prints are very popular right now. If you type DIY Galaxy , lot's of tutorials will be up on how to do it on your shirt , shorts and jumper also shoes. I think the Galaxy Print is really cool and neutral.

Healthy Lunches #2

I think that every child should have a yummy 'healthy' lunch to keep their brain going. Here are some quick and easy recipes for a good 'healthy'  lunch!


                                                   Healthy Vegetable Sandwich
1. Get some bread and spread some butter on it as the base

2. Get a couple of slices of  Turkey Ham and put it on the bread

3. Shred some cheese and carrot on top

4.  Put some lettuce on top with a squirt of mayonnaise , and then your finished


                                                                          Trail Mix!
Most specific people like to buy their Trail Mix from shops. That is fine. But since I am sharing some Idea's I thought of doing it home made.

1. Get a small container and add some Raisins in it

2. Put any kinds of nut's you want inside and then you're done!

                                              Extras:
To add to your healthy lunch , you may want some fruits and salad and milk. Calcium milk is what I recommend. For a little snack , just take two or three biscuits!

3. Get some bread and dip it in to the mixture and then put it into a buttered pan!




Little Mix- Move

Little Mix has just previously posted their new song! Move! I love the song very much and it is now my 2nd favourite. The song should be in a movie in my suggestion. This song reminds me of a movie called " Shark Tale ". I am really interested in the background music because what they actually did was , record their voices singing some beats instead of putting in jingles and stuff like that.

Style It Up! #1

Since the holidays has started I decided to be a little naughty and post about , different styles you can wear in 2 main seasons. I have created these little collages from polyvore, which is a shop online- site and also a creative site. So I hope you enjoy reading this post!

Winter:

Usually in winter Christmas is celebrated. So get ready for the Snow Flakes and the romantic dates! I am focusing on 2 styles. On the first one , I focused on patterns and details. So I decided to add in some patterned sweatshirts and leggings also I added a jacket with some fur to add detail. Pssst! Don't be afraid to smack on some chap sticks and mascara. Chap sticks are good for keeping your lips moist in the winter. With the hair , I've chosen to do a straight on top and little curls down bottom for a classic look. I did a nude colour for the nails because I thought it looked best! Winter can't stop you from wearing dresses. So for my second look , I focused on bold black. So I put in some wedges and a black dress. The trench gives the look more style in my opinion. 

Summer! 

The summer can be REALLY hot. It's also the time that people slap on some sun screen! On the first look I focused on 'pastel' colours because I thought it was a fun colour for the summer. I accesorised the outfit with a nice gold necklace to bring summer detail. I also put in some Keds which are great for all seasons. You don't want to add too much make up just add a fuchsia pink lipstick and a winged eye liner for the extra cat look!

Old School Favourites

There's nothing more fun than sharing some good oldie times! Am I right? Back in the 80's and 90's I predict that most people loved listening to pop. In the 2000's most people love listening to Soul and RnB.


My favourite candy was Wonka's rope  and Kinders Bueno , and guess what? I ate Wonka's rope today!! 'Twas the best. The old school favourite music of mine was Destinies Child, I was really into them , my favourite single was ' Lose My Breath' . My favourite show was Proud Family, guess who sang the theme song? Destinies Childs. The Old School fashion favourite of mine was Dungaree's they were just so adorable kinda similar to onesie's I guess?

Getting to know me :)

Hi, my name is Josephine and I am from room 16. I come from a family of five , there's my brother , my sister, mum and dad and of course me. I mostly like to play netball and touch at school. My hobbies are playing sports, art and using my net book. What I usually do in my spare time is cooking. My favourite food is Sweet Chilli Chicken and a bit of Nando's. What I am really interested in is listening to music. My favourite place would have to be the mall. I like going there with my family and friends.  My inspiration is Ariana Grande- Butera and Justin Timberlake, because they both have a story which really inspires me.

My favourite movie is the Mortal Instruments , I haven't seen it yet but I am looking forward to watching it. My favourite actress would have to be Sandra Bullock who previously starred on the film The Blind Side. My pet peeves are when people chew with their mouth open and when they don't wipe their nose.

The type of style that I'm into , is anything that's floral and hippy and sheek also studs, I like lace clothing and peplum clothing too. I'm not really into tight clothes. My most embarrassing moment would have to be , when a sticker was in my hair and everybody was laughing at assembly. The most happiest feeling that happened to me was when I became an Ambassador for my school, because I finally got the chance to represent my school in different places.

Snow White And The Beanstalk!

Snow White , was living happy and contented . She was living with Seven Dwarfs, in their small cottage. One morning, Snow White went to go buy some tissues for Sneezy Dwarf. " These tissues would be the perfect tissues for Sneezy " She suggested.

She handed the money  to the cashier. Suddenly she heard a little boy crying out, " Magical beans, buy your magical beans " " Beans? Magical Beans?" Snow White thought.  She walked to the little boy, selling the beans. " Hello, how much are those beans?" She questioned nervously . " They happen to be for free, majesty" The boy replied. 

" Well , why not? I'll have some magic beans please" She offered. Snow White went off , back to the small cottage. "Did you get my tissues? Achoo!" said Sneezy . " No, sorry, but I got these magical beans, from a little boy" She replied , staring at the magical beans , wonderfully!

" A boy, what boy? Don't ever buy anything from a little boy , their really naughty most of the time!" said  Grumpy Dwarf.  " So? we're like little boys " said Dopey. "Yeah, except we're little 'Men' "  
"Well I am so sorry, I didn't mean to get them but it was for free, I couldn't help it" explained Snow White.

Snow White was worried. " Don't be sad,  Snow White, maybe we should go plant these beans, they do look sweet! " Offered Happy Dwarf. "LET'S GIVE IT A TRY!" Said the Dwarfs. Snow White and the Dwarfs scurried to the yard. 

"Now, we need to be careful with these beans or else we will be in trouble and hurt" Warned Snow White.  Happy Dwarf carefully digged through the ground , while Snow White carefully placed them. They covered it and poured some water with a water can.

The next morning, Snow White woke up in excitement hoping to see a full grown plant. " Wake up, wake up , let's go check out the plant, let's go!" She chuckled. The Dwarfs and Snow White went outside, and saw a Huge Candy Beanstalk. " Let's go for a hike! " Suggested Bashful Dwarf. " A hike? we're still in our pyjamas's, what a great idea. " Agreed Dopey Dwarf. " Haha, we need to get out of our pyjama's though, hehe" Snow White chuckled. 

They got out of their sleepy pyjama's , and on they went out the door! "Okay who's going first?" Bashful Dwarf asked. To be continued . . . .

Cross Country!

" I have some serious butterflies in my stomach "  One of my friends said.  " I don't , and that's a fact " I lied , with shivers running up my spine. I wiped away  bits of hair from my face and saw a clear view of children crossing the finish line. I looked around, but to see only the 11 yr old's left on the court.  " Arrrggghhh, I knew I shouldn't have come to school!" I thought to myself. The sun started getting hotter and hotter . One drip of sweat streamed down my forehead. 

I was really sure that people went to the toilet on purpose,  just to miss out their cross country run.  I tried that, but the smell had just shooed me away! Looking outside , I 'still' saw the 11 year old's sitting outside , enjoying their time. While I was trying to get rid of all the butterflies in my tummy. Walking back to the courts , I was punching my stomach on the way.

A few minutes later . . . . . 

" Phine, we have to go run now" One of my friends said as she prodded me with her shoulder. " I think I'd rather throw up on my shoes than rather go for a run! " I claimed in my thoughts.  We walked across the field to get to the start line. Mr. Burt instructed us with all the rules that was needed to know.  

" On your marks . . . " I'm so not ready  "Get Set" Please let it rain . .  " Go!" Oh here we go again. I sprinted as fast as I could to catch up with the others. Oh no! I could feel the mud on  while running on the farm , it was squishy and yucky! I jogged past some people passing out and some walking on purpose. Finally , I was running through the reserve! I ran past Miss King , past Mr. Marks and past a Tamaki College student. They were really caring, the helped us not to stop and helped us to keep all the running up!! 

I was then coming second place and obviously Asena was coming first!  I tried to lower down my breath, I couldn't help it but stop for a while, and that is  what I regret! Turning around  I saw Keis and a few other catching up. So, I went for a little baby-step sprint .  I was almost at the finish line, until suddenly I ended up coming 6th.

Overall , cross country was superb! It was really cool almost watching myself run and not stop. It was a great opportunity getting to see others reach their goal!

Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs Retelling


Once upon a time there lived a prince’s daughter, with hair black as night and her skin as white and delicate as snow. She grew up happy and contented. Excluding her jealous stepmother .  Her hair was very long and her eyes were sea blue, and so they named her ‘ Snow white ‘ .  Everybody was really sure that she might become more beautiful looking.  All though her stepmother was very nefarious, she was beautiful as well , and the magic mirror often told her this daily , whenever she asked it.



“Mirror, Mirror on the wall who’s the most loveliest lady of them all?” she would always ask . The reply was always , “You are, your majesty “ But this time it was very different, the mirror replied “ Snow white is the loveliest of them all” The nefarious mother was straight-away in uncontrollable anger! She was in rage. She began secretly planning something to get rid of Snow White.


Calling one of her trusty servants, she persuaded him with a reward of rich money  to get rid of Snow White in the forest far away from the castle so that she could never find her way back!  The servant led the ingenious little girl  into the forest . They came to a mortal spot, the servant murmured an excuse and then took off, Snow White was all alone in the forest , by herself.


When dawn fell , there was no sign of any servant  Snow White began to cry. She thought that there were wicked people watching over her, she heard weird sounds that made her heart thump. She became very exhausted and tired and curled herself up and slept under a shady tree.


Snow White lied down with lack of sleep, she kept on opening her eyes every minute. At last, dawn woke up the forest to the sound of birds and Snow White woke up too. However, the thick tree around her were like a trap so she tried to find her way out and where she was.


She saw a path and walked along it. On she walked till she came to a spot , where she saw a strange small cottage. Every feature in the house was tiny. Snow White opened the door.


“ I wonder who lives here ?” she said to herself. Looking around the kitchen. “ What small utensils and what small plates “ She said . Upstairs was 7 tiny beds so she was thinking that there were seven of them.  She came up with an idea, “ I’ll make them something to munch on , so when they get home they’ll be glad to see a meal all ready for them “  She said. At last, the seven dwarfs marched in singing their chants homewards. They opened the door , and to their great surprise they found a bowl of yummy hot soup on the table and the whole house was more clean than ever!


Snow White was fast asleep upstairs , on one of the beds. The chief dwarf poked her gently. “Who are you ?” He questioned. Snow White told them her sad story and tears were streaming down their eye . And one of the dwarfs said as he loudly blew his nose, “YOU CAN STAY HERE WITH US”


“Yaaayy” they cheered, dancing joyfully around Snow White. “You can live here with us , while we are down the mine, don’t worry about your stepmother , we will take care of you” One of the dwarfs said. Snow White thanked them for their help and support. The next morning the dwarfs were off to work, but they warned Snow White to NOT open the doors to strangers.


Meanwhile, the servant had returned to the castle with a heart of a roe deer. Lying to her saying that it belonged to Snow White so that he could claim the reward. She turned to the mirror and said “Mirror , Mirror on the wall who’s the loveliest of them all now?” “The loveliest in the land is still Snow White, she is in the seven dwarfs house” the mirror replied.


The stepmother was in uncontrollable anger. “ SHE MUST DIE, SHE MUST DIE!” She shouted. She applied makeup and dressed up as an old peasant lady, she put a poisoned apple in the basket. She took a shortcut through the forest and behind the dwarfs tree house unseen as Snow White waved goodbye to the dwarfs on their way to work.


Snow White was busy in the kitchen , suddenly she heard a knock on the door. “Who’s there?” she called suspiciously , remembering what the dwarfs said. “I am an old lady who wants to give out apples”  she replied. “I do not need any apples, thank you” Snow White declared.


“But they are very beautiful and juicy” The evil stepmother said. “I’m not supposed to open the door to anyone” Snow White replied, not wanting to disobey the dwarfs order. “Such a lovely girl, since you have been listening to your friends you deserve a reward. Snow White opened the door just a little bit, to take the apple.


“Now isn’t that a nice apple?” The evil stepmother said. Snow White took one bite, and then fainted and fell to the ground. The stepmother laughed in an evil way. But as she ran back across the swamp, unfortunately as she ran she fell into quicksand. No one heard her cries , so she disappeared fast.   


The dwarfs had finished working, the sky was getting dark and thunder was coming towards them . They were worried about Snow White. So they ran all the way home as fast as they can.


They saw Snow White lying down still , pale and lifeless along with the poisoned apple by her side. They tried their best to let her breath, but there was no use.
They cried and cried for a long time. Then they laid her on a bed of rose petals, carried her into the forest and put her in a crystal coffin.


Each day they laid a flower there. Until one evening, they discovered a strange man admiring Snow White’s lovely face through glass. After the dwarfs told the story , the “Prince” had an idea.


“ If you let me take her to the castle , I will call amazing doctors to awaken her from this peculiar sleep, she looks so lovely to kiss.” he did, and as by magic , the prince’ s kiss broke  the spell. To great surprise Snow White woke. She had amazingly come back to life. Now in love, the prince asked Snow White to marry him. And they lived happily ever after!
