On Thursday 19 November we went to see Auckland Zoo Animal's.
Every body was all excited. First we saw the Giraffes, they were eating leaves from the tree.
I was the map finder showing them were to go.
The rhino was cool, my favourite animal was the cheetah, the lion, tigers and the birds that we fed.
The tigers name is Oz and Molik and there are two more tigers.
The meer-cats were frightened, it was funny.
I showed them where the tunnel was, we all had fun.
When we saw the elephant, Room 3 and Room 5 seperated.
Jarods been to the zoo 5 times, this was Anthonys first time going to the zoo.
I showed anthony's favourite spider, its the tarantular.
Then we went to the zoo shop to get some ice cream and we all got an instant win.
When room 5 came, me and jarod adom were supervising the kids on the slide at the playground.
After that we came back to waimokoia.
When we came back from the zoo we had a game of sleeping lions in the vans.

The time of my life at Waimokoia

My life at waimokoia was bad for the first term. I was sent to waimokoia for stealing money off people and bullying. My favourite thing at waimokoia was going to Mt Albert wave pools, museum, zoo. I liked the trips to Omana to set the traps and put new bait in, thanks to Miss Bry for the dead possums and dead rats we saw.

Mr kee is sometimes funny but always dry, my behaviour has changed a lot and ' I MEAN A LOT'. My class is room 3, there are 6 classes. My  teachers name is Mr pauli, I like the way Mr Pauli  and Mr Pete has changed the way i deal with my own behaviour, by using my personal goals i can use it at my new school. My teacher lives around the corner from me in Manurewa, South Auckland.

If Waimokoia thinks you have worked really well, then they will try and integrate you back to your old school, but you will still be at Waimokoia but only for a short time. My best teacher is Mr Pauli and the staff members that im going to miss are Mrs Platt, Mrs Carolyn, Mr Kee, Mr Rob, Mr Bing, Mr Zeb, Mr Joe and Mr Pete and all the other staff and teachers. We have been to cave trips and the movies and valentines too.

I will remember Waimokoia for the rest of my life because i know i wouldnt of changed my behaviour if i didnt come here.

My time at Waimokoia school

What i enjoyed about being in at Waimokoia and Room 3 was going out to the Pools,Omana,
Zoo,Museum and playing sports also making good choices, learningg more things rainforests, making new friends and playing against the staff .

Mr Kees has been the best teacher to me and Mr Joe, Mr Pauli, Mr Rob and Mr Joshua K are my best friends and my school friends are Kera, Bo, Bailey and Ethan.Mr John takes you to lunch if your good or do as your asked or doing your work in school and help people who need help.

When i get angry the the best staff to help me to calm down are Mr Pauli, Mrs Carolyn and Mr Pete.
My favourite things were the trips to the Nikau caves, it was scary in the caves but Anthony and Mr Pauli were the ones who helped me to overcome my fears in the cave.

I want to stay at the school because it is like home to me because they are kind to you when your upset or sad but I'm mostly sad because the school is shuting down and I've nearly been here for a whole year.

Im going to miss Waimokoia and Room 3 especially Mr Pauli who has helped me a lot with my work and my behaviour.

Thanks Waimokoia

How to make a cricket ball in samoa.

Where does the rubber come from?
Latex tree
Write the meaning of latex?
Milky white liquid are found under bark of pulu tree.
Why is the morning the best time to get the rubber?
because you can peel off more.

First of all he mixes the latex with water to stop it getting to thick an sticky. Drag a sheet of corrugated iron into the sun and clean any dirt or dust. Use the brush from a the fibre of the coconut husk. Paint the latex evenly on to the the grooves corrugated iron. Leave the latex to dry in the sun until it turns to rubber. Look for any type of rubber to make a small ball. Start peeling the rubber off the iron and wind it on the the small rubber untill you make a cricket ball to the size you want.

cocoa tree

Today we learnt about how cocoa beans are cooked and how they get the nib out of the cocoa bean. Before you open the cocoa bean you cook the beans.then it turns into chocolate.  The Cocoa tree lives in countries near the equator.  Mr kee came into my class room to talk to us about what he done to make chocolate. He cut the top of a gas bottle off, cooked the cocoa beans in the gas bottle and mr kee hit them with a with a piston and steel pole.

By Anthony Room3

Cocoa beans
We learent about cocoa beans today.
We learent that cocoa is very hard to get.
It is made in Equador a preety cool name.
There is apart in the cocoa called the nib,this part is very sweet.
They leave the cocoa beans in the hot sun so it can dry.
When its ripened in the sun for up to 5 to 6 days, the longer it is in the sun the better.The cocoa tree will only make 50 to 60 pods a year.That is dumb.The pods are just a bit smaller then a rugby ball.Mr Kee said he made choclate with a car piston and he hit the beans with a steel poll.
