WALT - identify how the early Church communities spread the Good News and recalls some of the success of Paul's journeys.I know this when I illustrate Paul's 3 missionary journeys on the Asia Minor map.
Paul travelled to 9 places on his first journey.
Paul spread the Good News about what Jesus had told him.
WALT analyse and interpret charts and data. I know this when I collect data and graph the information.
1.In 1946 there were 1500 deaths.This was the highest amount of deaths caused by Tsunami's.
2. In 1983 20 people died through a Tsunami hitting Japan.
WALT recognise that every Sunday is the day when the Church celebrates that God raised Jesus from the dead. I can do this when I write one sentence about why the Church celebrates the Eucharist every Sunday.
WALT retell the story of Sua in my own words using dialogue.
I know I can do this when I use speech marks to end and start a speech.
The retelling of Sua's story ....
A long, long, long, long, time ago on the island of Samoa, there was a small man called Sua.
He was brave, strong and always protected his sister. One day, Sua heard his sister cry and it made him furious. So he asked his sister ''Why are you crying?” and his sister said, ''The man had hurt me''. Sua was angry when he had heard this, so he went to search for the man. He looked everywhere in Samoa.
Then one day after the sun has set, Sua saw the man. So he jumped on his horse with his stick and struck the man. When he had calmed down, he saw that he had broken the man’s legs. Sua felt sad and went back to tell his sister what he had done. After telling her about what had happened, she told Sua to go to another country otherwise he will go to prison.
The next day, he said “Goodbye” to his family and packed his bags. Sua felt really sad. Then he went on the plane to NZ and found that it was really cold in Aotearoa and he only had a T-shirt on. When he checked his bag, he only had one singlet, a bible and two ten cent coins. He was freezing in the cold. Even though he didn't have that much, he worked as hard as a train. Every day he woke up, read his bible “Christ is my light’’, had his breakfast and went to work. He did that every day for 2 years. After 2 years, he married a Samoan lady and had 6 children. He lived happily ever after with his big family………..

My fun Saturday,
My cousins, mum and I went to a carnival celebration of the Salvation Army, moving to another area somewhere in Mt Wellington. As we entered the place, I met my school friends Cheska, Greshka and Kayla. First we had some shaved ice with blueberry drink just like a slushy. It was my first time to taste it and I actually did not like it because it had no flavour.
We went to the games area. First, I played on the skateboard challenge. It was fun but hard because I had to verse Cheska and none of us won the game. In the next game, Greshka and I played on the double ladder challenge. We had to climb the ladder which kept on turning around and around and around. It made me feel dizzy that when I got off it, I could not balance well and it felt like the world was spinning around. I knew it wasn't easy because the ladder was slippery so I had to drag myself up using my stomach and it really hurt. The game was so difficult that nobody won! Next Kayla and I played in a Boxing game. It was very easy for me because I was able to make her fall down three times. At last, I won!
After four more games, I gathered my tickets from the games that I won. A total of 12 tickets and I received a prize -- a sherbet, and a blue drink bottle. When I ate my sherbet it was yummy and sour and I really liked the taste of it. It was just what I needed after playing a lot of games that made me feel exhausted, thirsty and hungry.
Finally, mum, my cousins and I decided to go home because we were all tired and sleepy. I had a fun day last Saturday and I really had a fantastic day with my school friends, my cousins and my mum. I wish that there will be another Carnival for free that offers free rides, free tickets and free food for everyone to enjoy!

When she arrived, I could hear her screaming as if she was informing us that a famous star was coming to town. When I opened the door, she ran inside with a little giggle. I was surprised at how fast she came in the door, it was like she was on fire!
When my mum came out from the kitchen, she didn't expect her to be running around the room like a wild cat. She opened her mouth but did not say anything. I took my cousin inside my room and she brought her two little bouncy balls. We played catch with her two balls but missed every time I threw the ball to her.
She always says,”Wow, look at me!” But she never catches the ball so I just smiled. Then we played the second round. She said,’’I win - you lose!’’. I really didn't like it when she said it because actually she never even caught the ball in the last two rounds. I felt it was a bit unfair….
Then my mum came in to the room with 2 bowls of steaming soup. Because Mariah was really hungry she drank the soup as fast as a hungry bear. After eating we went to the lounge to watch a movie but I was already falling off to sleep. So my mum turned on the TV just for her. When I woke up I found her playing in my room again. She was throwing the ball back and forth into a box.
When I joined her she just ignored me. Every time she would throw the ball, she would say, ‘’ Look at me’’. ‘’But you haven’t even got a goal yet’’, I told her. ‘’Well, it doesn't matter because this is just for the fun of it’’ she answered with a big smile. After our conversation I heard her mum knocked on the door. It was loud as a thunder strike! Mariah had to go home so I hugged her and said goodbye.
I had a good time with her and she taught me a lesson that when you play, it doesn't matter if you win or lose, what’s important is the fun of it.
During the weekend my friends, mum and I went to city centre to see the boats.
When we arrived, there was a big crowd of people talking, yelling, laughing and riding their bikes across the bridge. It was like people were waiting for a famous actor to perform for them. I just ignored the people and looked into the water.
The water was very calm and gentle waves were making soft noises that were like music to my ears. Then all of a sudden, I saw very large containers piled next to each other. Some were closed and some were open. It made me wonder what was inside them. We kept walking and we watched kids play games down at the dock.
Next thing we knew, it started to rain heavily so we ran to our car like fast athletes otherwise we will get wet. But when we got to the car, the sun shone again. It felt like it was playing games on us. We drove up to the hill called Bastion Point which is located next to Mission Bay for a picnic. I was starving so I ate straight away.
After eating, we played soccer with my friends. It was a lot of fun but was very tiring for me afterwards. We watched people flying their kites and it was relaxing just watching them. Then it was time to go home. I was tired I could hardly move my limbs. But I had an awesome weekend with my family and friends. I wish that we could do this again sometime soon.

On Saturday 14th of June, my auntie and I went to her Parish hall. I was in a Samoan Puletasi. It looked very pretty, it had red flowers with black outline and a white background.
We went past a lot of people standing next to their cars as we were going in the hall. Suddenly, we heard a loud “BOOM!” Loud music bounced in my ears, it was so loud I could still hear it even if I covered my ears. We sat down and made ourselves comfortable. There were not as many people coming into the hall as I expected.
Then a man walked in front of us with a microphone thanking us for coming. He said that there will be performances and they will be serving us cups of tea later. The first performance was by a girl and her mother. It was pretty good. The next person who performed was a lady and she was amazing! I tried to copy some of her moves but they were too hard.
Then the moment has came for me to perform. I was so nervous that I felt like I was shaking from the inside. But since there weren't that many people there, my nervousness faded away. I started to run towards the centre of the hall with my bare feet because that is our culture. I did my very best to make my auntie proud of me. I was so proud of myself and I had finished my dance before I realized it. When the program was finished, we had a cup of tea and doughnuts. It was yummy!
Finally we said Goodbye and we went home. It was a long day for me but it was definitely a fantastic Saturday.
