My Xmas Letter!

Name: Alecia
Address: 40a, Castledine Crescent, Auckland, New Zealand
Date: 1/12/2014

Dear Santa,

I am writing this letter to you because I really want some presents for Christmas (please).

Things I Want for Christmas:

  • Chocolate
  • Lollies
  • Brand New Shoes
  • A New House
  • An Ipad
  • Money
  • I want to stay Alive
  • I want Happiness for my Family
  • I want a Pet (A Puppy or A Guinea Pig)
  • Headphones
  • To Sky Dive

I think that I deserve at least some of these presents because I have improved in my work all year. Plus I have at least tried to be kind.

The people that haven’t been good all year and the people that haven’t improve in their work at School are the people that I think shouldn't get any presents this year.

I hope that you will give me some of these Presents. I also hope that you will get my letter and accept my Reasons to why I should get these Presents!

From: Alecia!

My Writing Test

Today I will be explaining about a Library!

A Library is a facility that will help you with you reading. It is also a place that will connect communities and to study!

There are different types of parts to a library. The big parts are the walls, the roof, the windows, the doors & the floor/carpet. then there is the books, the shelves, the tables, the chairs etc. The main part of a library are the books. Without the books there would be no library!

A Library basically looks like a normal facility. But you will see people reading. But if the builders wanted to make the building look creative, then maybe your library looks like a huge ship! The facility of the library could be anything as long as it has the books for the members to read, because that is the main part.

Usually people that read or study use a library. But you could also use a library for a peaceful time or to relax. Maybe even to play a quiet board game. Like Chess or Checkers. But a library is definitely not used to watch a loud Rugby Game. No, you have to be silent at all times.

My special place (the library) is special to me because it can take you on imaginary rides. Whenever I read a book at a Library I feel like I’ve gone to another dimension. Then on that dimension I can see what the characters in the book can see. Example: Goldilocks & the 3 Bears. When Goldilocks ate the porridge I saw her, or when she broke the chairs I saw her. It just takes me on imaginary adventures!

A Library is important because it will help you with your education. It will also help you to learn little things like using your inside voice.

Overall I think that a Library is a great way to learn. Also to connect communities. I now hope that you now understand why a Library is special to me!

Mother's Day Writing!!

I am going to be writing about my Mother.

My mother has black eyes and beautiful hair. My mother has got brown highlights in her hair that makes her look like the most beautiful woman in the world!! Every time I SEE my mother I see a beautiful, awesome and loving person.

In the mornings, whenever I have to wake up, I always HEAR my mum’s voice. Her voice will be as screechy as a car with bad brakes. But when she is in a good mood her voice can be as wonderful as enjoying a nice block of chocolate.

In the weekend her my mum’s baking TASTES delicious! My mum loves to bake and she is really good at baking. Her specialties are Brownies, Cupcakes and Loafs of Bread. They taste just as sweet as Candy and I love, love, love, love Candy!!
When my Mum walks past me and I SMELL her perfume it smells just as better as her baking!! She has a lot of perfumes but 1 of her perfumes smell as though I was in heaven. But even when she isn’t wearing any perfume she still smells as though I am in heaven.

Whenever I TOUCH my Mum when I am hugging her it feels like as though I have a loving and caring Mother that will always support me and be there for me.

The Breakers!!

Everyone rushed like a herd of Elephants to Lineup as soon as the hand bell rang. We were extremely excited for this special event. This event was that the New Zealand Breakers were coming to our school!!

On a awesome Monday afternoon there was a good vibe because everybody was really excited for the New Zealand Breakers to come!! It wasn’t the whole team coming it was just 2 people. The 2 people were Duane Bailey and Daryl Corletto. Duane’s position was Power Forward and Daryl’s position was Shooting Guard. DUane was from West Auckland, New Zealand and Daryl was from Melbourne, Australia.

This was a really awesome opportunity for us and we really enjoyed it. After the hand bell rang everybody settled down and Mr Coakley reminded us about having good manners and being respectful to our visitors. When Mr Coakley finished his reminder we were escorted by our teachers to the Tennis Courts. When they had finally arrived everybody was freaking out because they couldn’t believe that it was actually them!! They were extremely tall and their shoes were gigantic!!

They also came with a bag of Basketballs. When we all settled down Daryl and Duane finally spoke. They said that people could win the Basketballs with their signatures!! People were really excited for this. But we had to play games and compete to win.

We played 4 games and my favourite game was Dribble tag. In this game there were 6 people that had to dribble around with the basketball, while running and trying to tag people. If you got tagged then you are out and then you will have to sit down. This is my favourite game because I had a lot of fun during it.

At the end we also did a little Quiz. We had to answer the questions and if we got it right then we would win a wrist band. When everything was over we had a few photos and Duane and Daryl was kind enough to sign our School Hats and our books. Some people only got 1 signature and some people were lucky enough to get both of their signatures.

My highlight of the day was playing all of the games because I felt like it will really help us with our Basketball skills. I felt really pleased because this was really fun. To me this was a really cool experience and I will just like to thank the people that could give this opportunity to us.

My Fishing Trip

Today I went fishing with my Dad and my Grandpa. I went on a Boat to the Coromandel and it was awesome!! I felt so excited and when I was on the boat I could feel the breeze race past my face!! We went to a few places for fish and guess what..... I caught the biggest fish on the boat!!

This was my first time fishing and I caught a Travali that was 8 and a half pounds! My Dad and Grandpa were very proud of me and I caught 3 other snappers, but they were still little. So now we are going to use my Travali for a nice Raw Fish. I love going fishing and I hope next time I will get the chance to go!!

The Life Caravan!!

The bell rang and Room 6 rushed to the back of the School Building, for the Life Caravan!!

On a lovely Tuesday morning Room 6 hurried to the back of the School buildings so that we could go to the Life Caravan!! Our teacher Mrs Middleton was also with us. As we waited fr the door to open it finally did. Then there was a lady with blonde hair and her name was Lynn. She was our teacher for the sessions. She was really fun and she taught us a lot abut having a healthy system.

Anyways after waiting for Room 6 to gather and settle down, Lynn finally began. The Life Caravan was so cool!! There were pictures everywhere about your body and about keeping it healthy. I enjoyed it so much.

When everybody was settled down we got started. The first thing we talked about was about the foods that we put in our mouth. From this I learnt that we have watch what we put in our Mouth. We also watched a video about this.

The next thing we talked about was the nutrients. For this activity we got into group of 4 and we got 1 nutrient each. The nutrients were Fibre, Carbohydrates, Minerals, Protein, Fats and Water. We also had to explain to the whole class about the Nutrient that we had. From this lesson I learnt about what all of these nutrients do to our body and what their job is to do in our body.

Our third lesson was actually a game. This game was called, ‘Pictionary.’ How to play this game was that we had to get into groups of 4. Then we had to number each other. 1, 2, 3 and 4. After this Lynn will call a number and if it’s your number then you will have to go up and Lynn will give you a picture to draw so that your group can figure it out. The first group to figure it out  was the winner.

In this game the words were, time, money, work, past experiences, friends, family and media. In this game I learnt that all the words help you in life in general.

The next lesson was learning about the Food Pyramid. We learnt about the things that we eat a little bit. This was like treats and fast foods. We were allowed to eat it sometimes but not everyday. Things that we eat a little bit more. This is like meat, then there were things that we eat a lot. This is Fruits, Vegetables, Pasta, Rice and other food like that. From this lesson I learnt that nutrients are in Fruits and Vegetables a lot.

The fourth thing we did was doing a little game. We had to name some healthy foods while doing a little dance. This was fun and made me laugh.

This was the last thing that we did and it was time to say bye to Lynn, but we were coming back tomorrow which was great. We all said goodbye to Lynn and lined up outside the Caravan. I felt very happy about this because I learnt a lot from this. My highlight of the day was when we were learning about the Food Pyramid because I think that from this I learnt a lot.
I can’t wait to go back tomorrow!!

Cyclone Lusi!!

As soon as I got up I went straight to the shower and then after my shower I put on some warm clothes and looked outside of the Curtain and all I saw was rain and wind. It was crazy!!

It was a Saturday morning so all I felt like was sleeping in but I couldn't because it was really cold. I expected for a Cyclone because there were news going around that a Cyclone was heading straight for us!! I expected that it was going to be tiny so I didn’t really worry much.

But then when I looked outside and there were trees swaying from one side to another. There was rain pouring down from everywhere!! But I kind of liked it, but at the same time I was scared because what if the Cyclone was actually huge and then it will destroy Auckland!! But that eventually didn’t happen.

So anyways, so I then started my day when I had got ready I started to clean up the house. I knew that it was going to be a boring because we couldn’t go anyway because of the weather. So I might as well should start cleaning.

So I did cleaned  up the kitchen and starting folding the Washing. When finally the rest of my family woke up we all had breakfast and then got ready for the messy and lazy day.

When everybody had showered up and the house was cleaned we finally relaxed. I relaxed for a little bit, but then got up and looked at the rainy, muggy and windy day. I was then getting worried. “Dad do you think the Cyclone going to be huge and hit us badly??” I said worriedly. He then replied, “Maybe it will, but I don’t think it will.”

So then after this my Grandpa came back and he had the Newspaper in his hand. He put the Newspaper on the table, then I look at the front page and the Head Title. ‘ Cyclone Lusi Coming Straight for Us?? “Wow I wonder if it’s serious or if it has hit anywhere yet??” I said to myself.

Then my Mums says that her and my Dad have to go to Sylvia Park to send an Invitation to someone. So they put my little sister to sleep and leave. They leave my Grandpa in charge and if he leaves then my older sister is in charge. So they leave and eventually take one of my sisters. My Grandpa eventually disappears somewhere like usually so that made my older Sister in charge.

While they were gone I made Toasties, watched Television and stared outside at the rainy and windy weather. Now at this point I was actually scared and was anxious. I was scared and anxious because I was saying in my head that “the Cyclone wasn’t coming.” But then I got much more worried just looking at the weather so then I said, “that the Cyclone it was coming towards us!!”

When my Mum and Dad got home they had bought some Chocolate and so I hate some of them. That took my mind of the Cyclone. It was nearly the end of the day and I was glad that there no Cyclone hit us. But then my Grandpa walked and then said that the Cyclone was going to hit at Mid-night!! Uh-oh now I got worried and scared. But I tried to forget about it.

When night had struck I went shower and put on my warm and cosy pyjamas. I felt very warm now. How I felt about this day was anxious, scared and worried. Why I felt these 3 feelings was because first I got worried but not really worried. Then I started saying to myself it was coming, then I said it wasn’t coming, so then I got anxious. Then I believed that it was coming here so then I got scared.

My highlight of the day was staring outside of the window and looking at the weather because I actually found it fun and I felt nice and calm.

The End!! :)


I am going to explain what bullying is. Bullying is when somebody wants to make you feel smaller. It is when somebody is being mean to you or when they make you cry on purpose.

There are many types of bullying. Like Physical bullying, where you beat up somebody. Verbal bullying, where somebody says something bad to you. Also Cyberbullying, where somebody bullies you online or on any technical device.

There is also emotional bullying. That is when a person bullies you because they are jealous of you or they have a feeling that you want to feel. Bullying like this could be taken too far and could lead to suicide.

Why I think people bully you is because they want attention, or jealousy, or when that person wants you to feel all the bad emotions that they are feeling. I think that Bullies just want a reaction from you and also it could be because they are a show off.

For me I think that the solution to bullying is that you could tell your Teacher if it is at school or you could tell your Parents. If it gets worse and if it’s cyberbullying then you should tell a Police Officer.

My opinion on bullying is that I don’t think that it is right and it really needs to stop. It is happening way too much in the world. If you are bullying someone then how would you like it if that was happening to you. It is not a nice feeling.

But just remember that it will always get better!!

Saint Patrick!!

The patron Saint of Ireland is Saint Patrick. He was born in Great Britain on 385. When he was 16 he was captured by pirates and taken to Ireland where he was put to work as a shepherd. During this time he was lonely and afraid but he learned to rely on God. He grew closer to God and his Faith strengthened.

After 6 years he escaped to France. He decided to train to become a Priest. It was not long before he was made a Bishop. He was sent to Ireland. Which at the time was known as a Pagan country. Patrick set about preaching and teaching the people about Jesus Christ.

He walked around the whole country and thousands of people became Christians as the result of his work. There are many famous legends about Patrick’s Life. He is believed to have rid Ireland of Snakes!! He used a Shamrock to teach people about the Trinity.

Today we celebrate St Patrick’s on March the 17th. Irish Christians have travelled all over the world to spread the Gospel of Jesus that Patrick brought to Ireland. On St Patrick’s day we wear Green to remember the green countryside of Ireland and the man who brought Christianity to its shores many years ago. St Patrick was very brave and we can always ask him to help us in time of trouble.

Funny Pranks

This is a Recount about Funny Pranks. For this funny Prank I saw it on YouTube. In the prank there is a Dinosaur. But it is not a real Dinosaur it looks real but it’s not. This Prank is set in China and it is in a large building.

The Prank is about when some random person is walking through the building then she/he sees people screaming and running away from something. They don’t know what it is but then when the Dinosaur comes down the hall they start screaming and running because they are so scared. It looked really funny.

The first person to come up the building and be scared is this woman. She doesn’t know that a Dinosaur is going to come. But then she sees people running and screaming so she stops walking. Then out of no where a giant Dinosaur comes running towards her.

She then starts running and screaming for her life. She runs to the bathroom and locks the door and the Dinosaur runs away. It was extra funny because she was wearing a wig and the wig came off. She also had high-heels on so it was hard to run as well and that also looked funny.

The second person that was walking through the building was another woman. She was just walking when these people were running and screaming so then she decided to hide behind a tall plant. But she never knew that they were running away from a Dinosaur so then when the Dinosaur turned she saw it and she ran like a cheetah. It was really funny because she was screaming and she had a really funny face.

She then fell on the floor and the Dinosaur was up against her face and she was shrieking. It looked like the Dinosaur was gonna lick her or something but then it soon left. She got up and was also laughing because she just realized it was a Prank.

This Dinosaur Prank was hilarious to me because their facials were really funny and I thought that it was awesome.

What Causes An Earthquake?


What Causes An Earthquake? And Why?

What causes an Earthquake are these plates that are under the Earth’s surface. The Earthquakes start when the plates touch at the breaks or crusts of the Earth. The energy of these plates form something called ‘Seismic Waves.’

Now a Seismic Wave is a Wave that travels through the Earth, that can cause an Earthquake or an explosion.  These waves move outwards just like sea waves that then form an interference in the body of the water.

There are different type of Seismic Waves. There is a Seismic Wave called a Body Wave. A Body Wave travels under the Earth and can go through solid, liquids and gas.

A Secondary Wave are just under the Primary Body they are just under the surface of the Earth.

Now there is a Seismic Wave called a ‘Primary Body. The Primary Body is the fastest Wave. When they hit the surface of the Earth they become Surface Waves and then continue to travel above the ground. But when it hits the surface is becomes the slowest Wave but it can cause a lot of damage.

Explanation Writing Lent

Hello, today I am going to explain about a Christian Season called ‘Lent.’ Lent is a time of preparation of Easter. It is a time to gather together and remember Jesus.

Lent begins on Wednesday the 5 of March (Ash Wednesday) and the last day of Lent ends on  Thursday the 17 April (Holy Thursday).
The reason for Lent is to remind us of Jesus’ sacrifice. It is also to remind us of how he went into the Desert and survived the temptation of the Devil. After when Jesus returned from the Desert he rode to Jerusalem on a Donkey and everybody was putting Palms on the ground.

Lent is important because it shows the 40-days and 40-nights that Jesus spent in the Desert fasting and praying. It is also a time for giving up things (almsgiving).
Lent is about Jesus because he gave up 40-days and night without any food and because of his sacrifice for us. But before he was crucified he had his last supper with his disciples. But Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus.

What Catholics or Christians usually do during Lent is give up something (fasting) for 40-days and nights just like what Jesus did.

Purple is the colour of Lent. Because when Jesus was going to be crucified everybody was mocking him of ‘King of the Jews.’ The Pilate and his soldiers put a purple robe over Jesus. The reason why the colour was purple was because purple is the colour of royalty. So that is why the colour is Purple for Lent.

My opinion for Lent is that I think that Lent is a important time because Jesus gave up his life for our sins.

Explanation Writing, Best Friends :-)

Today I am going to be explaining about what friendship is. Friendship is when you spend time with somebody who you can tell your secrets to and share your emotions with. The different parts of friendship are honesty, respectfulness, helpfulness, loyalty, inspiring  and most important of all love.

Friendship will only work if you are honest to each other. If you help each other and respect each other. If you show that person loyalty and if you love that other person.

Why friendship is so important is because without friends there will be no one to help us to get through tough times. They keep us company and comfort us. If we didn’t have any friends then the world would be very sad.

My bestfriends are Annalise, Monique and Rosalina. They are my best friends because they are funny and they make me laugh. They help me when times are hard. They are my best friends because they understand me and I can be myself around them.

Narrative by Alecia

“Wow what a beautiful day for kayaking and Fishing!!” Said Kate as she woke up and opened the curtains.

Once upon a time there was a Woman named ‘Kate.’ She was on a trip in Hawaii!!! What a great place to be. She had been in Hawaii for 2 days and it was Awesome!! So far she went for a wonderful swim at the beach, she had a fancy dinner and she had a soothing bubbling  bath with scented Candles around her.

She was having the time of her life. So when she woke up she decided to go kayaking. So she went for a nice quick shower put on her clothes and she rented a Kayak.  This was going to be her first time going kayaking, she was very excited.

On her way to the beach she bought a fishing rod, some bait for fishing and then headed off to the beach. When she got to the beach she saw a man waiting there. It looked like he was waiting for her. He had a name tag on his shirt. His name was ‘Mitch.’

She walked up to him and said, “hello my name is Kate. Are you waiting for me?” Then he replied,  “actually I am waiting for you. Hello my name is Mitch. We came here with your Kayak you rented for 1 day. I will be teaching you how to use the Kayak.” After when he taught her how to use it she headed off into her Adventure.

So she left the shore and kayaked and kayaked and kayaked, until she came to a stop and said to herself, “well this looks like a good place to fish.”  So she waited and waited and waited until she felt something tug towards her. She got so excited that she started to pull.

But the thing that she didn’t know that the fish that she caught was a Great  White Sharks Lunch!! Uh-oh she is in big trouble!!! When the Great White Shark saw the fish run away he got really angry and chased after it. When the fish got closer and closer she could she this blue and black shadow chase right behind it. So when she looked closer she looked at the beady eyes and she realised that it was the Great White Shark!!!

So first she reeled the fish in as quickly as she could and she sped off kayaking like lightning. She knew that she had to give the Shark’s fish back so she stopped kayaking and she threw the fish back in the water. After that the Shark stopped and he glared at Kate then he swam away.

Well it was nearly time for sunset and Mitch said to bring in the Kayak before sunset. She was unhappy because she didn't get to catch any fish but she also had a great adventure!!! So she kayaked back to shore where she found Mitch waiting for her. So she gave the Kayak back to Mitch and she headed back home. She got into bed got very comfortable and wondered what her next adventure was going to be!!!
