Turning Bush into Butter By Mina

This photo is an Informal photograph taken at Winiata near Taihape. It was also taken when new technology made it easier to photograph what went on in the world outside the studio. I can see one cat, two dogs and two cows in this photograph. Mum and dad are milking the house cows. The family nationality is Maori. This photo was taken by  Edward George Child. You had to burn down native bush if you wanted to get rid of it for farming. It was hard work that went into making and running a farm but it also had a negative impact on our forests. Gone forever. The photographer show part of a forest which is still alive and a lot of burnt trees in the background. The good and the bad.

Fun playing Basketball By Julia

On  Thursday 14th  Septemeber,   we went to the ASB Stadium to play basketball.  I was in the  Stormers team.  My teammates were Mina, Nikhil, Ethan, Braydon, and Willam.  I traveled in  Val’s car with  Kyi-Kyaw and Matthew.  We had  Morning  Tea and Lunch at the stadium.  I saw  My friends Lauren, Natasha,  Allan,  Vicky, Troy, Dillan, Keenan  and  Maciano from Base.  I was talking to my best friends. Everybody was cheering "Go Maciano, go Moncia "   I did well at shooting goals and my teacher said I was a good team member.  My team came second. I was very tired when I got back to school but had a lovely day.

Basketball- Special Olympics By Joel

On Thursday the 14th September, we went to the Special Olympics Basketball tournament at ASB Stadium. First, we got changed into nice clean Sommerville PE gear. I went in Val's car. When we get there, we got into our teams. Our teams were Stormers, Wildcats, and Thunders. I was in the Stormers team. First I was up in the seating area watching the other teams playing. Then my first game started, so I went back down and played my first game. We won 3 games out of 4. We came 2nd overall in our division. After the first game, I watched matches with Sunnyden and two other schools. I had a really fun time at the Basketball tournament.

Staying Home By Aidan

I had a sore tummy last week and I stayed at home.  I remembered to brush my teeth at home and Val is happy about that. Everybody was glad to see me this morning and I am happy to be back.  I listened to music this morning at school and liked that. Later on, I worked hard by colouring in by number.
