W.A.L.T- Re-craft Our Work

About me is a piece of writing I had wrote in term 1 of this year. We were told to pick a piece of writing and re-craft it to the best of our abilities. We did this to see how much we improved in our writing.

About Me

I have many hobbies, some of my hobbies are playing with my  friends and singing in my room all day long ( just like a weirdo) and not caring about whatever is happening in the outside world. I love to dance with my brother, and make cool and funny dance moves.  I love to play with cute and adorable babies. I always make them happy because my mum had 4 kids including me! She is a great teacher because she told me how to keep them happy. For example if they are uncomfortable,  to make them happy you need to sing them a lullaby . My brother loves to play roblox with his friends. He usually plays Meep City or Jailbreak which are different types of modes on roblox.

I love  doing my homework after school because I like to get it over and done with.  Once l am finished I go into my sister’s room and I ask her what she is doing, she then teaches me some French. We talk and talk and talk in French!  we start laughing at each other for no apparent reason. In my extra time I usually do some Ixl which is like a website that can help you with your learning. I also usually watch youtube, normally the things that are on recommended.   

This is me..

Dear Shavannah,

Hi again,  It’s so nice that we are getting along so well. That’s so funny that I have a sister called Ashley and you have a friend called Ashley what a coincidence. WAIT WHAT!! You play NETBALL TO WOW we have a lot in common I play netball and I know you do but what team are you in? Well I can tell you that i’m in the B team that is the second highest team. Some on my best friends are in the A team so I don’t seem them as much on Saturday mornings their names are Tvisha, Moksha, Meera, Mischa, Valora, Mishti and others.  Next Saturday, the A and B team are going to Clip n Climb for our end of season treat! Because we have finished the season of NETBALL finally!!! I play netball to represent the school and also love to spend more time outdoors :D Do you play for school or for a club?? That’s nice that your friends make you laugh when your sad, that’s what my friends do, but also they tell funny jokes and that makes me laugh.

Do you have friends that used to go to your pre-school and now go to your school you go to now? I have three people who were in my pre- school and now are in my school there are two girls and one boy. There names are Mischa, Eva and James. Eva left the school when she was in year 4 and I was in her class. It was really sad because she was one of my best friends who left me and her friends.

I have a male teacher and his Name is Mr Tomokino. He is a very nice teacher but he is very strict.  My teacher is from Tonga and Cook islands. He has a daughter named Kyla she is ADORABLE she has been to our school .  

Your sincerely by: Maddie :D

Speech Judging Sheet

Speech Judging Sheet
Name: Madeline            Topic: How technology is taking over the world                               
Main Points

Self Assessment
Low                                         High
1           2 3           4 5

My speech was organised logically into paragraphs, with an effective introduction and a conclusion.

I used some gestures, stood still and made eye contact with my audience.

My voice was clear and loud.  I didn’t speak too quickly or too slowly.


My speech had a message and was original, interesting and relevant to the audience.


I used ‘powerful’ words in my speech.  I also included some language features (eg repetition, alliteration, similes etc)

My speech was between 2 ½ and 3 ½ minutes long.


Next time I need to …  Be less nervous and slow down so my audience can hear me better.

Teacher Comment

Your speech was well structured and you made good eye contact with the audience. I like the information you delivered however more personal voice could have made it a bit stronger. Well done.

Why is Technology taking over the world?

Why is technology taking over the world ?
“Dinner kids, come and get your pizza, it is fresh from the oven “, my
sisters comes stomping down the stairs with their phones (as usual)
in their hands, muttering under their breath. Taking a look at them, i
wonder how technology is taking over the world.

(being obsessed)
Have you ever wondered, how technology is taking over the world? well i
can tell you that,Technology is taking over the world because everyone is
just so obsessed with the newest electronics  like there phones and thinkpads
these days. Computers and the internet are examples of technology they are
convincing people to get devices so they get attached to them and spend so
much time on them and not even spend quality time with family.

(how many people use tec)
There are  3.2 billion people using the internet and 3.2 billion people who
are online. I think we should spend more time with family, because they are
fading away this is because we are stuck on devices, playing games or
watching youtube  24/7.

(how the world is updating)
The world is always updating and with it technology has become a regular
tool that we use for school, work and in our free time.
There are many benefits of technology such as contacting people from differen
t sides of the world, researching information for assignments or learning new
stuff from the internet.

However with this information we need to be know about the dangers it
can bring about such as the overuse of the internet. For example playing
roblox after school or watching youtube for hours until your parents tell
you to get off. This could lead to sore eyes and headaches. It’s important that
as a human race we don’t become consumed with the things we see or hear
online because it can be all  be a illusion. We become so glued to our devices
that we are being controlled by the internet.


Overall I think that  technology is controlling   everyone and this is very
dangerous that 3.2 million people use the internet and technology, every
single day and taking their family for granted  as they become attached to
their electronics. Thank you so much for being a good audience.  

Message: We need to spend more time with family and less time on gadgets

BBI Visit

          BBI visit finally

It was finally the day to see what Blockhouse  Bay Intermediate
doe’s in class and see the structure of the intermediate. As we got
separated into our eight groups I thought that if I get split up from my
besties like Tvisha and Meera well I still will be with Gabriel,Sobia and
Umma. We were going to do Drama and Dance. Miss H was our teacher
who was teaching us she said that we would be going in groups of 4 but
one group will have 5 people in it. But we went in a group of 4 and we had
to perform something that was CRAZY Sobia had to act like she was
CHOKING TO DEATH and I can tell you that it was very funny how she
performed it. After our next class was coding and that was very fun were
had to draw a circle,square and triangle. After that we got to go on the
chromebooks and draw a gigantic square that was big and then in side the
square was tiny squares that was very hard to make on the internet.
