Room 19 are going to have a paper airplane challenge.  Everyone of us had to find a partner and participate in the competition.  I have been testing it and it can go very far just like going for gold.  We are all really excited for this fascinating challenge.

My partner is Mary Vaisima and she is a very good and talented friend.  Our class teams had to choose a country that is participating in the Olympics 2012 apart from New Zealand.  We are having 4 different races and they are: 1. Greatest average distance 2. Most accurate 3. 4 x relay (greatest distance). All distances will be measured in a straight line.  Mary and I are the Nigerian flag and we are SO! Excited. Are you excited rm 19?

Making Decisions!!

Our task was to write about making decisions and about which way we choose. Whether we choose the right or wrong.

Here’s what I have been up to.........  Sometimes I just get tempted to choose the wrong.  But mainly, I have to stay calm.  Making choices obviously is a very hard thing that can affect our family, friends, school or teachers and principals.  I have had this thing happening to me before and sometime we affected things and sometimes we didn’t. “We” is the 5 things above.  A bit of advice is, to follow the 3 P’s and 3 D’s.  Our 3 P’s are “Partnership, Participation and Protection.” Also, the 3 D’s are “Dedication, Desire and Determination.”  Compare making decisions to life. In the “Life Education” Caravan, we learnt the exact same thing.Stop,Think and then “Do.”Are you making the right decision?

Sweet Dreams or Beautiful Nightmares

As I woke up again, I realized that I was sleeping. I felt fresh and bright after a beautiful and sweet dream. I felt as bright as a diamond or star in the sky and as precious as silver and gold.   Also, I was sleeping for a very long amount of time because of what happened while I was sleeping. “Its 8pm” I said to myself but this is how it started......

After a really long day at school, I came straight home and slept all the way till night time at 7:50 pm (approximate.)  My dream was actually about achieving and being the best student in my class. While I was in a beauty, I suddenly shouted “WOOHOO!!” It started with Mr Harris growling off Athena, Mary, and Vanila. He also used my name as an example and said, “WHY ARE YOU ALL WASTING YOUR TIME!” Then he said peacefully, “ Be like Hosannah,, he finished absolutely everything that our  class has done.”  And that thing about finishing off everything, it’s really true as you may know by reading about me getting 2 gold medals.

To all kids, adults and audience, please don’t think this was fake because I woke up and wrote it straight away.  Anyway, after he used me as an example, I looked at him with a very big smile.  I am still smiling at the moment and also, I still feel happy(VVEEERRRYYY HAPPY!!)  

This sleeping beauty thing, it has made me feel much more keen and confident. Have you ever had a dream that came true? Well I did. “I thought I was going to have a beautiful nightmare.” I said with joy and happiness.

Carl Lewis!!

Out of all the reading groups in rm 19, I am in “Karoro” and we had to write a brief summary about an athlete. I am writing about Carl lewis.

He was one of the world’s most experienced and amazing athletes. Carl Lewis was born in Birmingham though he was actually brought up in Willingboro, New Jersey. He was a fast man that represented USA and played long-jumps.  Carl Lewis started participating in long jump events when he was just 13 years old. His birth of date was on July 1st, 1961.  An amazing thing about him was that he became an “actor” and has appeared in a number of films.I wrote about him because he inspires me just the way Michael Phelps does.

Thanks to Naomi for helping me and giving me advice to fix my piece of writing.


During the week, I have been doing a presentation about the Modern Olympic sport. Out of all the sports that are in the Olympics, we had to choose one sport and turn it into a creative presentation about the history, people and performances. I chose Volleyball and also, I hope enjoy the presentation I made.

Thanks to Vanila for helping me get my slideshow on my blog

All My Marks Out Of 100%

As you can see, these are the marks I achieved out of 100%.  We have been working on about 2-3 different Quiz's about the Olympics. I am proud to keep achieving and I think I will keep doing it.


This week I have earned 2 gold medals in a row because I am GOING FOR GOLD! I also am achieving a lot and I am very proud of myself.  I would like to thank Mr. Harris for helping me and for pushing me forward towards going for gold. My goal is to keep it up. The reason I had 2 gold medals is because I have finished week 1 and 2 assignments. You know how proud I am, are you proud to?

Our Assignments!!!!!

We have been doing, learning, practicing and contributing with a fitness log that we have planning over the week.  We had to choose out of 5 things that what we wanted to increase. One of them were skipping and that is what I chose.  Here is "my" Goal Setting and Fitness Log!!

"GO FOR GOLD!!!!!"

Our topic for this term (term 3) is, “GO FOR GOLD!!”  Our class is learning about the Olympic games.  Are you interested in our theme? Well, come along and I will take on a little adventure..........

The Olympics is a really popular thing to New Zealand and worldwide. Lately my class has been looking and researching about famous athletes that really inspire us. I chose a well known swimmer called, “Michael Phelps!!! I am enjoying our theme right now, here is an acrostic poem that covers the words and letters, “GO FOR GOLD!!!”

Good Athletes
Optional Sports

Fast Feet
On the GO!
Reeeaaalllyyy Determined!


Desire, Dedication, Determination!!!

Thanks to Athena for Helping me.

" Michael Phelps" Inspires Me!!

Michael Phelps! He is a well-known swimmer and one of the world’s fastest. Also, he is a vibrant man that is the most accomplished American swimmer of all time!!


On an article I read, is said that he is a professional swimmer that was born in June 30th 1985 in Baltimore, America. Overall, he  won 16 Olympic medals, six gold and two bronze at Athens in 2004, and eight gold at Beijing in 2008.

Phelps, (From above) holds the record for the most gold medals won in a single Olympics and his medal total is second only to gymnast Larissa Latynina. His full name is actually “Michael Fred Phelps.”  His mother and father's name are Fred and Debbie Phelps.  

The youngest of three children, Michael and his sisters grew up in the neighbourhood of Rodgers Forge.  Phelps began swimming when his two older sisters, Whitney (born 1978) and Hilary (born 1980), joined a local swim team. Isn’t this a cool story. I just found my favourite swimmer and he is an enthusiastic man.  He inspires me because he is too famous that I just want to be as popular as him. ( I was just joking:) Also, I want to be like him because I want to win the same amount of gold medals he won. By the way, "GOLD FOR GOLD!!"

Thanks to Vanila for reading and checking my work. I mean it, "Thank You."
