What is Taekwondo? Taekwondo is like boxing but in different ways. Since 9:00am we were busy doing taekwondo. Our instructor name was Yu. During our lesson, Yu showed us some action. We had to follow her. Next it was time to do some self defence. Yu said to us that we can not do this outside to anyone. Although we were very tired Yu just told us don’t give up. When she did the moves, she looked fascinated. After that it was time to play some games. Until then it was finished. I am looking forward for our next lesson because I enjoyed it.

Yahoo! It’s time to go and learn some information about volcano. When we were at the museum we had our own time table. We were in different groups and in different classes. I enjoyed my group because there were only little of us. It was time to go with the instructor Josh to learn about volcano. In the room, Josh splitted us into 3 groups. We each did a activity. Josh showed us a 3 news video and a presentation. What I learned from the volcano room is that Pukekawa is the grandpa of all volcano. I didn't know that it would be called the grandpa. Finally it was over. It was time to go back to school. When we drove back, I was thinking about a question for my inquiry learning. My inquiry question was has worldwide volcanic activity been increasing recently?

On Fridays our class go to Tamaki College to learn digital technologies. Hangarau is the maori word for technology.When we are in class, we have to use the Kiore and the Papa Patuhi to log into the Rorohiko. On the rorohiko we have to use the ipurangi to log into the pae tukutuku for digital technologies. Every week we access the maramataka to know what task we have to do. Sometimes our teacher will send us messages to our imera. Sometimes our teacher will send is dojo points from her Waea Pukoro, or she might also use her waea pukoro to take photos of us working. At school or at home some of us use our rorohiko ponaho to do our work.

Lets celebrate our 2 weeks school holidays!! During the mid year school holidays my family and I did our ice challenge. Ice challenge is something that people do for cancer. If you get nominated by any one then you will need to do it or donate any money to any cancer society. After you done that then you will need to nominate 5 people or more. I had to do my ice challenge because my aunty nominated me. I did my ice challenge and I donated $100 to my aunty that had cancer.
On my ice challenge day I had to get my four buckets ready. It was 3 buckets to tip on me and 1 for my leg to put in. It was time to do it. First I had to nominate my nominees. They were all from my church. They only had 24 hours to do it. I did it for my aunty and my cousin that had a hard time with cancer. While my uncle was tipping it, I was screaming and kept on running because it was cold and I felt like I was in a freezer. But that was only first bucket. When it came to my last bucket I said no because I couldn't stop running. My family was laughing at me but I didn't care. I had to try my best to do it so I did it.
Finally it was finished. I was so festive that it was all over. I had towels wrapped around me. My brother was mocking me so I said to him, wait for your one because its coming. That was the most awesome holiday ever!!

Busy busy watching the Voice Australia! Every Friday I watch the Voice Australia because I want to see who will be going to the finals. Well today was the semi - final. When it came to an end, the M-C said that Ricky Martin will perform his new album that he sang for the FIFA WORLD CUP called, VIDA. I couldn't wait. When he sang, he was very sweaty. His song was really amazing because he sang it in different languages. GO RICKY MARTIN!!!

On Campbell Live it showed that the viewers from Christchurch say the taxis are among the most expensive in the world. One viewer named Sarah wrote to them and said its not unusual for her mum to wait for hours because drivers didn't want to pick her up. She was disappointed.

SURPRISE!! On my front door this morning I had an knock knock. It was my best friend Hifo. I was so excited to see her because they had to move to Hamilton. They had to move because her dad was called to move to Hamilton. Her dad was a minister. Every year a minister gets call to move to a place. They were one of them. Seven years they stayed to be the minster at our church. When I saw her, I hugged her for ages. She came to bring us fruits. She had to go. My family and I was so surprise to see her. Love you Hifo!!!

Getting ready for dinner! For dinner my mum cooked us rice and chicken curry. I couldn't wait to eat it. We were all hungry because all our stomachs felt empty. When dinner was ready, we had to sit down and do a pray. It was time to eat!! I enjoyed my dinner!! Hope she cooks it again.
Ice challenge is something to do with cancer. Our country NZ did it because we got nominated by America. When people do their ice challenge,they will need to nominate 5 people or more and they will get 24 hours or 48 hours to do it. If they don't they will need to donate money to any caner society.
I had to do mine because I got nominated by my aunty. Time to do my ice challenge!I had 4 buckets full of water and ice in it. I was really cold because it was windy and it was raining. While my uncle was tipping the ice and water, I started screaming and running because I felt that I was in a fridge. My family was laughing because I keep on running. After that I had to do my nominees. I did 7. It was all from my church. They had 24 hours to do it or donate any money they have to any cancer society. I enjoyed my ice challenge.
Good Luck Everyone!

Today I was reading my favourite book. It is Chinese Cinderella. Chinese Cinderella is one of my favourite book because it is about a girl that gets bully by her step mother and her family does not care about her. Her name is Adeline Yen Mah. Adeline had 2 step brother and sister and 2 brothers. There were 5 of them. Adeline step mother will always hate her, growl her and will not give her anything to eat. She would always cry and cry.
I am looking forward to read the other pages.

Today I was very animated to watch Germany vs Argentina for the cup. I voted for Germany because my brother (Voni) voted for Argentina. While the game was still on, Voni was angry because he thought that the Argentina player will get the ball through to the net but it didn't. I was happy. When it came to half time it was still nil. It was time to play again. It was still nil. Time was running out. They had to get an extra time. It was Germany ball. All the Germany supporters were screaming because one of the Germany player got near the score net and he scored. I stood up and screamed and screamed out loud because they won. My brother was very angry. All the Argentina supporters and team players were crying. It was a tough game. I really enjoyed watching the games!!!..

You helped me laugh
you dried my tears
because of you I have no fears
Together we live
together we grow
teaching each other what we must know
We all go through life with the love of friends and family
Even though we know they will all leave us eventually
Never knowing where the future might lead you

Yahoo! Today was our last session at badminton. At badminton we had to pair up so we could have some competition. My buddy was Anamanu. Anamanu and I would always lose once or twice. We would always laugh and cheat. My favourite thing about badminton is serving because when you serve, its not the same as serving a tennis ball. Finally it was over. I was tired and reddish.
From badminton, the only thing that was difficult for me was that when you serve and they hit it back and it’s hard.
