Toku Pepeha

Te Reo Maori and singing.


I am learning to sing in tune.
I am learning to pronounce words in Te Reo Maori correctly.

My thoughts about Tautoro School.

Tautoro School


I think Tautoro School is the best learning school ever.
I think school is fun and fantastic.
Also we have sports with Matua Matt, like Basketball, Hockey, soccer and slapball.
Also we learn with Miss Paraha and the best of all we get to dance with Whaea Dorothy.
We always have Whaea Janet to help us with our spelling.
She’s fun too.
We learn so many different things and we are able to use our chromebook to help with our learning.
I like starting off the Term by setting my learning goals and I try to achieve my goals.

So that’s why I think Tautoro is incredible.

Recount Writing- Watching the Breakers.

WALT to use the correct structure and language for Recount Writing.
4.12.17
Watching the Breakers.
On Friday morning me, Andy, and Aunty Jean drove to the Christian School to hop on the bus to go to the Auckland Basketball court. First me, Andy, and Aunty Jean got in the bus. It was a long journey in the bus. When we got to the games our whole team followed a lady. Next we went into a little place where the Breakers were.
Later on our whole team got a t-shirt for our game.
When we got picked to go on the court the team played well.
When I got picked I was running as fast as I could, so fast that I was able to get the ball off someone.
Then everyone ran on the court and our time left was 43 seconds. When time ran out we won. I was so proud.
After that, my team got a slushy for excellent work.
Shortly after the Breakers and the Wildcats were warming up.
Then it was the game Breakers vs Wildcats.
My team was cheering so hard.
While the game was on, me, Andy, and Aunty Jean walked to the shop in the hallway. I had $20. It looked so clear and beautiful down there. I bought a LandP drink, a Breakers handball and a Breakers key ring for my Mum. That left $1.
I wanted to buy me a new very expensive cool Breakers hat but they were $69.
I went back to watch the game. It was so cool and amazing.
The Breakers players were doing some amazing dunks. The game was so fast because they didn’t have many outs.

The game was over. The Breakers lost but all I know is they tried their best.

WALT to use the correct structure for Persuasive Writing.      
We should drink water every day

I think we should drink water every day

Firstly I think we should drink water every day because if we don’t drink water our lips and body would be really dry on hot days.

Secondly I think we should drink water every day because water is better than any other drink because other drinks like fizzy or juice has sugar, water does not have sugar in it.

Another reason why I think we should drink water every day is because it will help you swallow properly and spreads all the nutrients from the food you eat, around your body.

Lastly I think we should drink water every day because water keeps your temperature normal, especially on hot hot days.

So that’s why I think we should drink water every day.

My side felt like I got stabbed with a knife because I was running so fast up the hill. Next I got my first mark. I said,
“One more lap to go.” When I got down the hill Miss Simeon said, “Straight through the water V.J it’s not fun if you don’t run through the water.”  So I went straight through the water. I felt cool when I went through the silvery water.
Then I started to run around the cones.
My legs felt like wobbly jelly. My heart was pounding.  After that I ran through the last bit of the course.
I got tired so I had a little rest. My Uncle Joe said, “Aroha is catching up with you V.J.” So I started to run as fast as I could. Later on I said, “I made it.” I heard lots of people cheering. I felt so proud of myself. So I went to Whaea Dawnette. She said, “V.J you came first place.” I forgot

what else she said. Shortly after I had a kai. It was delicious. I felt super tired after cross country day.

At Fire Brigade Cup Sports Day
On Thursday morning my school went to play rippa rugby and soccer in Kaikohe and to have fun games. My team and I were playing soccer at  Lindvart Park.
I felt pumped to get a goal at the fields.
When we got to the Soccer fields we saw lots of teams. So I bolted to the first game. It was Tautoro vs Kaikohe West.
I said, “Whoa they are big. They look hard to verse.”           
I felt eager to play and score but we lost the game.
Shortly after that we had a game against Okaihau. They were big kids. They had good control of the ball. They were very skilled players. We lost against them. I said, “Oh no we lost another game.”
I felt a bit sad but I was still keen to play more games.
Our next game was against Kaikohe West again. We lost again because Tuishaly got scared of the ball when the team kicked the ball hard.
Later on it was time go home.
I said, “That was super cool.”
Finally my mum was ready to go.
I thought it was the best day ever.

When we got to the park we saw the swing, the slide and every fun thing.
I said, “Wohoo, so many things to play on”
The first thing I did at the park was speeding to the slide. It looked like the funniest thing in the park. Then I bolted to the swing I said, “Wheee, I'm going so high.”
I felt like a flying bird on the swing. I was going so high. As high as a plane.
Next I ran to the monkey bars. On the monkey bars I was climbing like a monkey.
I said, “Mum, Dad, Nan, look at me. I’m going backwards.”
I felt a like a monkey swinging backwards and forwards.
After that I chose the last thing to play on. I said, “Mmmmm, let’s play on the slide one more time.”  So I did.
I felt like the luckiest kid ever.

Recount Writing- Playing outside

WALT add lots of detail and information in our writing so our readers understand the story.
Thursday 15 June 17
Playing outside
On Saturday me Andy and Traeh played some games at home. First we played dodgeball. We grabbed the ball and started the game. We had to throw the ball at each other. Ouch! Treah shot me. Then I was in. I tried to get Andy but I missed. I said, “Oh no! Andy dodged the ball. I will just go for Traeh.” Then I got Traeh. He went for me. I tried to do Andy’s trick. It worked because I dodged Traeh’s ball. The game got boring. Next we played soccer then Joeche arrived. Then the game got fair because before it would have been 2 vs 1 but now it was 2 vs 2. So it was me and Joeche. Andy said, “I have the speed and VJ has the tricks.” Andy was as fast as Uncle Matt and I was as tricky as Uncle Matt. Andy’s team scored a point. Treah thought he was better than me so we versed each other. Treah kicked it out and had to kick it to me but he kicked it into my goal. That was 1 point for me. Then Treah got a goal. We were a tie. Then we played volleyball.  Me and Andy made up a little net but it was still a bit big. Andy was good at this game so it was me and Treah vs Andy. The ball was pumped up really hard. That made it really painful to hit. I could barely hit it so we played volleyball but with kicking the ball instead of hitting it. It was still sore so we played another game. Then it was time to go home.

My mum called me so I was speeding home. I told my Mum about my awesome day of playing games with my cousins. It was exciting and fun.

I am learning to use language features to make my recount more interesting for my readers.
Whangarei Pools
Splash! Splash!
I was at the Whangarei pools with my whanau. It was a beautiful sunny Wednesday and I was enjoying my holiday.
Swish Swish I was barrelling down the slide as fast as a rocket. Swish swish side to side.
The rushing water pushed so fast. Suddenly Swoosh I flew out off the slide and crashed into the warm water.
“Wow that was so amazing.” I said to myself.
I had the best time. It was wonderful.
I dashed into the cold pools. “It’s not that cold” I said to my mum. Me TK and Rawiri enjoyed playing water fights. We played for 2 minutes but there were no waves. Then the warm pools finally opened. I tried to swim from top to bottom but I only made it into the middle. “Oh well,” I said to myself, “I’ll try that again in the next holidays.”
I had an awesome day at the pools.

Playing Rugby in Okaihau
On Saturday afternoon my team Tautoro Titans and I were playing Rugby in Okaihau. I was very very very fearful of playing tackle rugby but when I had a go it didn’t feel bad. It felt super cool. When it was the second round I did amazing fending. Matua Matt said, “We are playing well but we need to strip the ball off the other team, better.”
The other team were running then Ranga tried to strip the ball but he tackled a boy from the other team. Rangamarama got the ball and was running as fast as he could. Then Ranga passed the ball. I wanted it but Andy got in the way and got the ball. He ran and ran and it looked like he was going as fast as lightning but then he got tackled. Then Jahvis got the ball. He used his muscles to fend off the other players but he still got tackled. After that Chris got the ball and lost it straight away.Then the other team got the ball and scored a try.
I know we lost the games but we still had fun.
I think tackle rugby is my best game.

Recount writing - Going fishing

I am learning to use the correct structure and language for Recount Writing.
20-03-2017.
Going fishing
On Sunday morning me and Uncle Andy and Taria and Treah and Aunty Roxy went out fishing. We went in Opononi on the wharf. Treah caught the first fish, then Taria, then me. First you cast the fishing rod and when the fish are grabbing the rod and trying to escape you yank it up so the hook can go right through. Then you try and reel it up a little bit just in case the fish is on there. I caught 5 fish and 9 hooks that got loose. My Uncle said, “Wow that is lots of hooks you got V.J.” I think we got over 15 fish. My Uncle caught nothing because he was too busy fixing the fishing rods. But sometimes he was helping us when the fish were too big. I think I caught a very strong stingray or a snag. We were using squid and dropping the line down all the way to the bottom and then it was better because you got more fish. The squid really did the trick. It must be yummy for the fish. My Uncle was saying, “Wow squidward is yummy.” My rod and Treah’s rod were bending so hard that it looked like the rods were going to snap. When we ran out of squid we thought we had to go but we forgot  about the bait so Uncle Andy pulled out the bait and we were so surprised and said, “Wow.” “Yes yes yes!” We were so happy that we could keep on fishing.
We only had 4 more pieces of bait left that lasted long enough. My Uncle said “1 more fish and then we will go” So the last person who got a fish was Taria. She shouted, “Yes, Yes, I got one.”
Then we went home and had a good kai.

Here are my learning goals for Term 1 2017.


Recount Writing - Minecraft Game

I am learning to organise my ideas using the correct structure and language for Recount Writing.
09.03.2017
Yesterday me and Hilton were pretending to play a minecraft game at school. I thought me and Hilton were crazy running away from nothing. I think that Herobrine is the toughest player in the game he can fly too. I think Herobrine is as tough as superman.
I said, “Wow Herobrine is super strong.”

I know who is most deadly. It is the Enderdragon. Sometimes I like zombies and skeletons. Slenderman I think is 4th best. Creepers are my worst nightmare. They creep up on you and they kill you by exploding. You can build a shelter with your blocks and hide in the best spots. Hilton is a pro at that game. He can kill anything and find the best spots and it is in the middle. If you are on the side, the Creeper will come by the wall and blow you up. That is what Hilton did to Penaia. Then the bell rang and it was time get to class. Our game was so cool. I really enjoyed playing it with Hilton and Penaia.
