Doing The Triathlon


Yesterday Litia,Raenan,Lorenzo,Brooklyn,Tui,Logan,Isara,Chante and I went to Mountfort park to do the Weet-bix Triathlon. I had butterflies when I got there because there were heaps of people. I was the 3rd or 4th group to race, out of thirty one people I came 3rd. The swimming would have been the hardest because people kick you in the face, I still got past them and came 3rd. When I got out of the pool I quickly put my shorts,T-shirt,shoes, and helmet and raced my bike to the exit. I heared Miss.King and Chris cheering for me. For the prize giving chante won a bike. Thank you to miss King, Alex, Chris and all those other adults that came to support us. Also I would like to say a huge thank you to Hayley Palmer for training us for the triathlon. School biking and running practise at school was probably harder than the real one. Hope you enjoyed my story.

My Reflection for 2010

This year I have enjoyed playing with my friends and telling Jokes. One of my favourite games is go home stay home. I have enjoyed learning how to play base ball, I love doing cool things with Cola. I would like to have done more time on the computer because I love doing E-learning tasks and blogging. I could have worked at pod casting and xams. Some of my best memories were Totara springs and cross country. I’ve had fun this year even though I have been in America for 4 months. Get better at my school work and having neater writing.

My best friends

Hi my name is Teresa and I have 4 sisters (2 step), I also have 1 brother and (1 step). My best friends names are Litia, Vivienne, Lola, Jay lee, and Tauwhare. I have only been to Litias house because she is my best best best friend. They all care about me and I care about them. It is fun playing with each at school because we race each other and we all know she is faster than us. My life with my five friends.

Portable Swimming Pool


‘’This life jacket is cold,” I said to Litia. It felt cold and clammy. As we were eagerly awaiting to hop in the pool Chris told us to hang our towels up.

Chris is from Water Safety NZ, he is very kind. Chris teaches the whole school about safety, one of the safety rules is to float on your back and don't panic. Our school is lucky to have Chris and the pool. It is cool because you can move it around. The water is warm when the sun shines on it and a little bit cold when its raining. (Room 15’s swimming days are on Wednesday)

When I hopped in the pool I walked to the end and floated on my back. When Chris said "Get into a huddle," we quietly sung the national anthem. We had heaps of fun.

Scientists classify the animal kingdom and sort them into 7 categories. The animal kingdom have different groups like invertebrates and vertebrates. They were put into place where they had lived.

Invertebrates are animals and insects with no backbones, (97% of the animal kingdom). Vertebrates are animals with backbones like birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and mammals. Vertebrates have warm blood, hair and their mother.

Some of the groups are arthropods which include segmented body's and joined legs.
annelida also include worms.
