My trip at the Tamaki River By Raymond

My adventure on the  Tamaki River Walk
One  sunny day on November 5th the seniors went on an adventure to the Panmure Basin and the Pakuranga Rotary Walkway. When we were walking around we did some exercise on the fitness equipment at the Panmure Basin. When we were walking we were all tired but we still had to keep going until we got to the skate park. While we were walking people were asking Miss Paton “When is it morning tea?”. She said “Another half and hour”. I said to myself I wish I was at the skatepark, I am so hungry. After asking Miss Paton about morning tea we were all whining. We finally got there and we started to eat our lunch. I said “Yes, finally!”

Then we left the skate park and walked across the bridge. When we went down this man was cleaning the boat. When we went passed him It was like toxic gas coming out of the hose.  I ran to the front and I waited for the others. When we were half way people were tired,  they wanted to stop and have a break. So we did.

After that Room 6 left us behind and we buddied up with Room 8. Then me and my buddy were playing eye spy while we were catching up to Room 6, but they  kept moving  faster and faster. We caught up to them but they took off. We started walking faster and faster and then we got to pakuranga yacht club .  We finally caught up to Room 6.

Then we had lunch and Room 6 saw a snakes and ladder game. When they went on the slide their shorts were dirty and even the slide was filled with mud and bugs. People did not care if they got dirty and even the ladder was slippery from the mud and rain . When I finished my lunch I ran to the snakes and ladder. First I went to the ladder and it felt like goo.  When I went on the slide it was  muddy, slippery and dirty. When I went down I got dirty and then I went back down and played with Thomas. We were playing with dices. Then we saw two buses coming in and then we waited for the third bus. It finally came and then we headed back to school for a refreshing ice block.  We went back to class and I said “That was an exciting adventure” .

Room 5's Favourite Animals By Tim

This is my Statistical Investigation. Four students (Including Miss Paton) in Room Five voted for the Koala, Two voted for the Platypus, Four students voted for the Tasmanian Devil, Five voted for the Kangaroo and Fifteen voted for the Panda.. I think why the students voted for Panda the most is because it is cute. I think why the students voted the Platypus the least because they haven't seen one. I worked with Jhardae. 

Oh S'mar's Rotary Walkway Experience

Rotary Walkway
Last Tuesday the seniors of Panmure Bridge School went on the the Tamaki river walk. It was sunny in the morning and windy. It was a long tremendous walk, everyone was exhausted. First we went to Pakuranga,  I thought we would start on the left side but we started on the other side instead. The people who took photo’s did a good job. After we went on the bridge, first some people were scared because it was their first time across the bridge. Once we had past the bridge we saw this obstacle course. Room 8 and room 5 went on the course. Everyone was excited to go on the course. We carried on walking until we got to the skate park.

We had morning tea at the skate park and we got 5 mins to play. We carried on walking, the people who had the cameras had to change and give others a turn. I was one of the people that got to hold the camera. I took  photos of the water, birds, bridges and many more things. After that we carried on walking until we had a 10 minute break. We had to pair up with the room 8 children and look after them until we got to the end of our walk. We had walked about 5.5 km by the time we stopped for lunch. Everyone was so excited. I went to the slides with Patrick it was awesome because it was a big tall slide that went very fast. After that it started to pour down with rain everyone was disappointed and sad. We were waiting for our bus. I saw a cloud that look like a big grey dragon. The sun came up and everyone rushed to the slides and the playground to have one quick last play.

The bus came and we were all sad that we had to go back to school and do work. Once we got on the bus people were sleeping we were all so tired and happy that we had walked for about 5 hours. When we got back to school we had a nice cold ice block, it was delicious. We all went back to our classes and wrote about our day. It was a fun day.    
The end.


My Time at the Rotary Walkway By Yvette

Rotary Walkway

It was a beautiful, calm and cold morning. I had arrived at school early for our school trip around the Rotary Walkway. My wonderful teacher Miss Paton called out the roll to see who was away and who was at school. We needed to say if we were staying or leaving to go on the trip. Our whole class except John and Jasmine went on the trip. Rooms 5,6,7 and 8 went on the school trip around the rotary walkway and the Tamaki basin. The senior school gathered their bags and sunhats. We met on the court to see how many children were staying at school and where to send the people that weren’t going on the trip to a junior class.

All the classes left at the same time. Mrs Kirkpatrick and her class walked in the front. Mrs Anderson was behind our class. Rooms 5,6,7 and 8 walked around the Tamaki basin first. We walked all the way from our school to the Tamaki basin. We arrived at the Tamaki basin(finally). Mrs Kirkpatrick's class walked a lot faster than our class. They were way in front of our class. We walked halfway around the basin. My legs were burning. I felt like lying on the pathway. There were exercise stops around the basin. We didn’t get to try out any of them because our teacher didn’t let us.

Unfortunately, halfway around the basin it started to rain. It was pouring, I was so soaked. We had 4 camera people in our class taking pictures. The first 4 were Fine, Angel, Samantha and Caitlin. They did a good job. We finally finished walking around the whole basin. Hipi.  At the end of the tracks there was a skatepark .That is where all the classes stopped for morning tea. I was so happy and astonished. I thought we were never going to stop.

I sat down and ate my sausage roll, my pizza bread and drank some water. After I had finished eating, I sat down until we were asked to leave. We had 20 minutes of morning tea. 20 minutes passed and Mrs Kirkpatrick asked us to pack away our food and get ready to walk the Rotary Walkway. I walked mostly with my best friend Fine around the Rotary Walkway.. The rotary walkway was so long. I was so hungry. We walked for about 5.5 kilometres until we finished the track. The Tamaki River had an amazing view. The river was in high tide so you could see how beautiful and how extraordinary the Tamaki River is. We almost made it halfway around the Rotary Walkway. We stopped at a small carpark area.

Miss Paton called out the roll to see if anyone was missing. Rooms 5,7 and 8 had a 10 minute rest at the tiny car park area. Our teachers decided to buddy up our class with a room 8 kid. I was buddied up with Iris. Sadly, the Room 8 kids slowed us down. After everyone in Room 5 was paired up with a Room 8 student we would carry on our trip to the end of the Rotary Walkway. We walked for about 30 minutes until we reached the end of our walk. We stopped at the Pakuranga Sailing Club. The Pakuranga Sailing club had a huge open field where we could eat our lunch and play games, it also had a weird training park. There was also another park called “Snakes and Ladders”.
Unfortunately, it started to pour with rain. We were forced to go under shelter. Students started to leave the shaded shelter to play games. Lots of people played on the weird training park.. They didn’t care if it was wet. I walked around the field. We need to wait until the 3 buses came to pick us up to drop us off at school. 2 buses had arrived at the Pakuranga Sailing Club. We needed to wait for 1 more buses to come. I had tried all the training exercises. The last exercise felt weird. The exercise helps build up muscles in your upper thighs and legs.

The last bus had arrived.. Room 6, 7 and 8 abounded the first 2 buses.
Miss Paton thought we had our own bus but we needed to share with Room 9. The bus took us back to school. That was our time at the Rotary Walkway.

Room 5's Favourite Sports By Sant Tat and John

Me and my buddy San Tat asked room 5 what their favourite sport was, the most popular sport was soccer. I think that soccer was most popular because it is a fun sport and isn't a rough sport like rugby. The least favourite sport was a tie between rugby, cricket and AFL. I think that those are the least favourite chosen sports because we don't usually play those sports at school. 

Caitlin's Recount on the Tamaki River Walk

Tamaki Walkway

It was a calm and cold day. I woke up ready for a massive walk around the Panmure Basin and the Rotary Walkway. When I arrived at school it was sunny. All the classes lined up on the court. Rooms 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 came on the trip.  I felt excited that we were going for a walk. We walked up the driveway. Lavinia, Mrs Eeles and myself were playing a game. The game goes like this, you have to pick a colour (My colour was silver) and if a car comes pass and it is silver that means you get 1 point and it carries on. The game finishes when someone gets 20 points.

When we arrived at the basin Miss Paton gave Angel, Fine and myself a camera to take photos. I took a lot of photos because I wanted to remember the trip. When we got to the basin we had to walk over the bridge. I felt scared because it felt like the bridge was going to collapse. When we got half way around the basin I felt so exhausted. It was like my legs were just going to fall off. Finally we were at the skatepark. We had our morning tea but we only had 20 minutes of morning tea. I decided to have my muesli bar and a drink. “20 minutes is up everybody so could you please line up in the same order as we did before” said Ms Kirkpatrick

It was time to start our walk around the Pakuranga Rotary Walkway. We had to walk across the Panmure Bridge, while we walked across my friend Fine’s hat was blown away on the middle of the road. Everybody started laughing because cars would drive over it and the hat would go back and forth. The next class came past and one of their students lost their hat as well but instead of it going on the road it went in the water so she couldn’t get it back. When we were walking down the hill to the yot club we saw a man spraying his boat, it stunk really bad. Everybody was blocking their nose because of how smelly it was. We walked up a little hill. At the top there was a street but it was a no exit street.

We started walking around, my legs felt like they were just going to fall off. Room 6 was way ahead of us because they were really fit. When we got to this little area where you could sit down Mrs Anderson said that “We need to walk together because Room 6 were way ahead of us”. Room 5 got buddied up with a Room 8 person. My partner was Nazella, she was very funny. “I hope it doesn’t rain” she said. It started to pour down with rain. I was as  cold as an Iceblock. Finally we arrived at the Pakuranga Rotary Yacht Club. It wasn’t raining but unfortunately it started to pour down with rain even more than before.

We had to go to where the shelter was. A lot of people were using the exercise equipment. The exercise equipment was very weird, but it was very good for you. We were all waiting for the 3 buses to arrive. 10 minutes later 2 buses had arrived. We had to wait for the 3rd bus to come. “FINALLY IT’S HERE” I shouted. Miss Paton thought that we had our own bus to ourselves but we didn’t. We had to share with Room 9. After the 5.5 kilometer walk I felt exhausted. I just couldn’t wait to go home and relax.

Fine and Angel's Statistical Investigation: Ethnicities in Room 5

My partner Angel & I worked on our Statistical Investigation today. The whole class were given instructions on how to complete a Statistical Investigation properly. The least amount of Ethnicities in room 5 are Kiribati, Chinese, Burmese, and Afghani. The most amount of students ethnicity is Maori. I think that there are more Maori students in room 5 because Maori's are Native To New Zealand. There were a total of 12 Maori students in Room 5. There is 1 Kiribati, Chinese, Afghani and Burmese student in Room 5. 

Room 5's Favourite Sports By Patrick

Today I have chosen 5 sports for room 5 to choose they were Rugby, Soccer, Netball, Cricket & Baseball. The sport that room 5 chose the most was soccer because there is a after school program for kids to learn how to play soccer. 
The least favourite sport was Rugby because it might be very hard and a very deadly sport. 

Yvette's and Lavinia's Statistical Investigation on Room 5's favourite Sports

This is mine and Yvette's graph on room 5's favourite sports.
The most popular spot in the class is soccer. It is the favourite because we ave an after school soccer program. 
The least favourite sport in the class is touch. It is the least favourite because not much people like getting hit and they may have other favourite sports.    

Room 5's Favourite Movies By Thomas

Pacific Rim was the favourite because 11 people liked it. I think it was the best movie because of awesome special effects, making the big, bulky robots come to life. The least favourite movies were The Smurfs, Harry Potter and Batman. I think that they were the least favourite because The Smurfs are animations, Harry Potter is more of a fantasy than action and Batman is not really a favourite. The movies that are liked by the same amount of people are The Smurfs, Batman and Harry Potter.

Anything is possible when you think big, have dreams and when you have an education. This film highlights the importance in having an education. This movie looks at what famous people have in common and it investigates what education was like in the past and compares how it is now.
