Why class rules are at school?

One of the most important things to have at school are rules. They are to help you to keep safe. In school and out of school. If there were no known rules everybody will break into schools and steal stuff. Kids will have fights and not get stuff done. There might be heaps of Police around the school.

The school would look messy and ugly. People might chuck bottles at windows. Maybe they will be tagging on walls and it will look ugly as. The police might ban the school and let no one into the school.

Kyal Cross Country

On the day of the cross country I felt nervous for the run. But l knew I was going to come somewhere but not last. We had it at our school Pt England School. People were watching, like families, teachers, everybody was there. We had it on Thursday 11th of September.

When the whole school started cross country there was year 1 to year 8. We needed to run in different year groups. There were teachers in different checkpoints along the course. There was 1 to 24. There were 4 house teams like yellow, green, red and blue. The names are Te Arawa, Tainui, Matatua and Takitimu.

When I got halfway to the 2nd lap l just ran fast. And tried my hardest to run fast. When I finish the race I was happy. Because we don’t have to run again for cross country praise. When we finish the run we all had a glass of water. Then after than we all sit in our groups. And finally we had finish for the last day.

I felt very tired and my heart was pumping hard as. When l had a glass of water l could it breath. I was so so so so tired.

Kyal Ban Plastic Bags

Dear Prime Minister John Key

I am writing this letter to tell you that you should ban plastic bags. I think that plastic bags are so bad because it will kill all of the sea animals. It might make the sea polluted . Did you know that 1 billion plastic bags are used in NZ each year?

People get plastic bags from shops, markets, Shopping centres, and The WareHouse.  They pay 10 cents for one plastic bag each. Sometimes you get some plastic bags for free. It makes rubbish on the road, rivers, and trees.

I think that people should use cloth bags.

Yours sincerely

Lest We Forget 1918 War

On Monday August the 4th we had a special assembly. It was about war back in 1914. Mrs Flavelle’s grandad was in the war and Mr Burt’s grandad was in the war too. Someone was putting up the flag on the pole to respect the soldiers who died and who made it home safe  to their families.

At Gallipoli they needed to fight in the mud, because everything was blown up  from the soldiers. Trees were on the ground and animals were dead on the mud. It had gun shots on the animals. I was so sad.

Many soldiers died in the war.

Echolocation Writing


Echolocation, also called bio sonar is used by several kinds of animals like bats and whales. Dolphins also use echolocation. Animals make sounds and listen to the echoes of those echoes that return from objects near them. They use these echoes to locate and identify the object
Ben Underwood could not see with his eyes but he could see by using sound. When sound rebounded off objects he knew where he was going. He could hear cars from far away and that would trigger sound waves. Ben Underwood used prosthetic (fake) eyes and he can skate, ride a bike and shoot a basketball inside a basketball hoop.

Kyal funnel ears Science experiment template

Science experiment:

Question: What will happen to the sound if I change the shape of a piece of paper? (e.g. from a flat shape to a funnel shape)

Links to research about Sound:

Hypothesis: (What do you think will happen?) e.g. I think that the sound will be louder or Echo

Materials needed:  Paper . Tape . Tissue . or . cotton .

Experiment (procedure):

e.g. Step 1 - First hold a flat piece of paper against your ear. Block your other ear with your hand. Get your partner to speak to you. What is the sound like? Can you hear clearly?

Step 2 - Next, roll the piece of paper into a funnel shape. Put the funnel against your ear. Face the funnel towards your partner and listen to them speak. What does it sound like? Can you hear clearly?

Step 3 - Next, face the funnel to the side while your partner speaks to you. Does it make a difference to the sound that you can hear?

Step 4 - Put some cotton balls or tissue paper into the funnel to block one end. Does it make a difference to the sound you hear? Is the sound quality the same?

Step 5 - Next, roll the piece of paper up and face one end of the paper roll towards your partner. Listen to your partner speak. Is there a difference to the sound you hear?

Step 6 - Finally, turn to the side with your paper roll and listen to your partner speak. What is the sound like?

Data (What happened?)

flat piece of paper
didn’t make any difference.
funnel facing to the front
louder and sounds clearer
funnel facing to the  other side
person sounded quieter. background noise was louder
cotton ball or tissue  blocking the narrow end of the funnel
It will sound the same a bit, but it was a little bit quieter
rolled up piece of paper (facing to the front)
sounded a bit funny, but was clear.
rolled up piece of paper (facing to the other side)
couldn’t hear clearly. could hear lots of background noise

Observations: (This is your description of what happened)
When Miss Lagitupu put the funnel up to my ear she sounded louder.

When we used the flat piece of paper it didn’t make a difference. When we used the funnel the sound was louder and clearer. The sound was a bit quieter when the funnel was blocked.


My hypothesis was right because the sound was louder when the funnel was used.
