The Lego story

At 1932, in Billund, Switzer there was a man called Oli and he was a carpenter, he had four sons and a wife, but Oli’s wife had past away.

Oli was a special man and he could do anything. Oli  began to carry on with his carpentry and made money for his son.

He started thinking as to what shall he could do. He began to make wooden toys that could move. He began to sell the toys, but the toys that Oli had made struggled to sell. But one night there was bad storm and the workshop caught on fire. Oli had lost his stuff in the fire.

Later,Oli got some men to build the new workshop. Then Oli started to give a name to his toys. Oli thought his company needed a short name.He found a the word LEGOHT which mean play well.Oli decided to call the company Lego. Since Oli lived in 1990’s, Oli did not have plastic which to start off with, all his toys were wooden. Oli then found a machine that could  make plastic toys.

Oily died and Godfrey was by his self to run the company, but still Godfrey keep on going and Godfrey’s idea grew, and grew. Godfrey had his own airport in 3 years and then, he got an idea that he was going to build an amusement park called Lego Land.

The Lego business  turned out to be good and it was getting better everyday.The thing that I really like, is that Oli and Godfrey tried their best and never gave up. I think Lego is still a big business, so well done to Godfrey and to Oli.

My food rap

I love to eat chips, so much I move my hips.

I eat them with my lips, I eat it when I am sticking.

I love to eat chips when I put it in my dip, so forget about my hips and know about my dips.


When I eat my chips I always think that I am cheaper, than the keeper.

Chips is my favourite food and it makes me happy, and it snappy for me.

manaiakalani film festival

On Wednesday the bus arrived at 10:00 and we had just finished eating our morning tea. After that we sat on the ground and the teachers explained what is happening. Everybody was so happy that we are going to the Manaiakalani film festival at the Hoyts Sylvia Park.

We got in one of the two busses, which we shared with room 4 and we went off to Sylvia Park. At the car park we waited for the rest of our school to come and lined up in our class.

After that we had to wait because the other school’s session hadn’t finished, eventually they came out. There was 5 schools who came to the film festival while we were there. There were us, Glenbrae School, Tamaki Intermediate, Somerville School and Glen Innes Primary School.

When all of us was ready we went inside to find our seat. I was with Ana, Salote and Jane. Me and Salote were next to the light and the buttons for the chairs.

The movies started, we were all happy and me and Jane were a bit silly because our movie was the first to start. We were all screaming and jumping up and down. When our movie finished the next movie came on. I was clapping for the good movies and some of them were good and funny too.

When the film festival was finished we all went back to school on the same bus and the same class that we had shared buses with before.

I was tired so I fell asleep in the bus next to Jane. I had just woken up when we were at school. After that we had big lunch and we ate and played then we had time it relax. The bell rang and it was home time.

My favourite part of the Film Festival was ROOM 3 and room 7’s movies because we were in them.

The mysterious stone

One day, John was sitting in the seat with his lunch box, he picked up his sandwich and he ate it. Once he ate it there was a stone that fell down from the sky into his lunch box.

He wondered what it was, then he looked at his lunch box and he was afraid of it because it was shiny and it was hot.
The bell rang and he was in a hurry so he shut his lunch box and ran to class.

After that his friends saw the shiny stone in his lunch box. John’s friends said "hey John what do you have there in your lunch box”, “Nothing” replied John. He put his lunch box in his bag covering it with his jacket, and he whispered to himself and to the to his lunch box "do not move”.

He went to class and Mrs Elisey said to John "have you finished your homework”. “Yes” replied John to Mrs Elisey. "Good now everybody we will be doing our reading for 4 minutes" said Mrs Elisey to the class. The clock turned and the children were happy because they did not want to do their reading because it was quite boring. Mrs Elisey said to the children "be quiet, I know you guys want to play but you have to finish your reading". The bell rang, the children were happy and they went outside and got their lunch and ate it.

Suddenly it was time to go back home, Miss Elisey said to everyone in her class “please everyone you have to finish your reading okay”. They heard the bus "hurry up we are going to miss the bus”, Kate said.

The stone was getting hotter in John’s lunch box and the lunch box was on fire, also the bag was hot. John felt the bag and he got the stone out of his lunch box and put the stone next to him together with his jacket. John touched the stone and said to himself “I wish the bus would go faster” and the stone got shiny and the stone made John wish true.

John went home running to his room getting a hammer then he smash it and it broke into pieces. John left his room to find something to eat but once John went back to the stone had fixed itself, John wished he had a drink and suddenly it appeared. John said “I can have this stone, it has power and it is magic”.

John lived with the stone forever and he said anything he want and it appeared.

Kids for Kids Concert

On Monday night we went to the Telstra Clear Center, it was cool. We went there with our parents. We had to go to the special door and Dina spoke to us about what we had to do until it was time to go in.

After that we saw Miss G, and she bought cookies and chocolate, also some cards and games. When the show was starting we got into groups, then we had to go on the stage.

In the theater it was big and dark. The curtain was covering us, then Dina went in to say welcome to everybody in the audience.

The curtain opened and the songs started. Our eyes began to shine because the light was so bright and lots of lights were there and lots of school singing. We couldn’t see any of our parents because it was dark where they were sitting.

We began to sing and then we had a break. I was thirsty, we got a cookies and some chocolate each and we went to the toilet. Dina came into the place that we were sitting and told us that it was time to sing again.
