How do people during the fencible era communicate to other people with out electricity?
People in the olden days use a typewriter.They type a message and sent it by mail. I saw an old typewriter in the stone cottage. It was very small. They are not like computers, laptops and chrome books because it doesn't have a screen and doesn't use electricity. The keys are also different from the computers

Do you know  the difference between the washing machine 
today and the washing machine in the olden days? In the olden days there were no electricity so they use a washing machine by hand. To spin the machine,  there is a handle to turn to make  it spin.

Do you know what the fire place is for?
The fire place is for cooking the pot of food, warming your self and for light at night. Fire is burned by fire wood. When the fire burns out they use a wind blower to burn it up again.

Autobiography - by Augustine

Learning Intention: W.A.L.T. write our autobiography.
Success Criteria: I know I am successful when I can write my auto biogrophy using adjectives and in paragraph.


My name is Augustine. I was born in middle of cold winter in July 2008. My wonderful parents are Henry and Viena. They are energetic hard working  parents. 

Daniel and Marii are my annoying, energetic brother and sister. My generous aunties are Niva, Kina, and Lilian. My cool, cook island uncles are Puasa, Augustine, Tani, and Fred. They are from my dad's side. Leti, Nele, Vite, and Visone are my uncles from my mum's side. My grandparents are Palu, Marii, Kaina and Kolotau. They are old but energetic  grandparents.

Soccer is my favourite sport, because they have great skills that I can learn and follow. The song I really like is called The Judge by Twenty one pilots. This is my favourite song because they have a nice rhythm. 

At school I love reading and writing. I like reading because reading takes you places when you imagine it and I like writing so people could read my books. 
My athletic friends are Paul, George, Marc, Matheus, Te Raiana, Harley and Oliver.

Flash- My dog - by Augustine

Black and brown hair, yellow eyes,
Runs very fast, barks very loudly, and sleeps long,

Scared of spiders, and the dark,
Enjoys eating and playing fetch,

Likes guarding the house, and running,
Hates doing nothing and cats,

Would like to be a police dog,
Resident of Auckland, Weymouth,

St. Patrick's Day - by Augustine

Learning Intention: W.A.L.T. write a recount.
Success Criteria: I know I am successful when I can write a recount about St.Patrick's day using capital letters and full stops correctly.

Do you know what Saint Patrick's day is all about? It is a celebration for our school's patron saint.

My favourite game during St. Patrick's day was Rob the Nest. A teacher named Mr Bell was the person in-charge of this game. He emphasized the importance of playing fairly. We were team red and we were against team yellow. We had two matches. The first match I was a defender so I had to make sure that the yellow team doesn't get our red flags. I wasn't very good at being a defender. Now for match two. I was an attacker. I had to get the yellow flag from the other team. I was very good at stealing the two yellow flags from the other team.Finally my team won.

I would like to play Rob the Nest every day. It is a great game to play. I hope that I can play the game real soon.
