Netherlands - The Artis Royal Zoo

Hi again! Today we went to the the Artis Royal Zoo in Amsterdam! It was AMAZING! There I had poffertjes ( poff-er-jes) with powdered sugar, nutella, strawberries . . . ANYWAY! It was the best zoo ever! I took some photos of my favorite animals, here they are!

This is a Scarlet Ibis - it looks a bit like a pheonix!

I have NO idea what this bird is called but it is freaky so I will name him freaky dinosaur bird!

I was so lucky to have seen one of these amazing animals - Fennec Fox (my favorite animal next to cats)

This is an Ocelot - amazing animals!

We were in the butterfly sancturary and these are two of the butterflies!

One butterfly landed on my top ( sorry my face looks so cheesy it was bright and I squinted)

After we went to the zoo we met up with Joust and Natalie for lunch (YUM)

I will be posting soon! I hope you enjoy, bye!

My Flight to the Netherlands!

HI! WHAT A DAY! We left Kerikeri yesterday and flew to Auckland and that took half an hour, then from Auckland we flew to Hong Kong for a stop over which took 10 hours and lastly we flew to Amsterdam which took 12 hours. 24 hours in total! We just arrived in Amsterdam and we are staying with my half/step Auntie, Natalie and her partner Joust. Here are some photos of our flight. I will be blogging every couple of days!
This is the tiny dessert we got on the plane!

Student Led Confrences

On Wednesday Te Ngahere held Student Led Conferences, a new and improved Parent Teacher Interviews. Student Led Conferences are when the student leads the conference instead of the teacher and the student talks to the parents instead of the teacher. Mine was at 4:30. My Dad, Mum and I sat down in Te Ngahere. I showed them my evidence of my Art, Inquiry, Maths, Reading and Writing. We got given my report. In Writing and Reading I am Above and in Maths I am At in the National Standards and we are only half way through the year, so I think I am going pretty good. Here is my Google Drawing that I showed.

Matariki Whanau Celebration

Last Thursday Paihia School held a Matariki Celebration Day. At 6 in the morning some kids went down to the beach to see the Matariki Stars. Then they went back to school for breakfast. There were lots of fun activities planned for us. We did Family art, which is sketches of koru and kowhaiwhai patterns that represented a member of our family. We played games like Maui Matou and Rakau with Harko Brown. We planted shrubs and plants around the pump track for our bird corridor. After that we had a giant shared lunch outside the whare. There were cakes, biscuits, wraps, sandwiches and chips piled on the long, white tables. The food was AMAZING! That day was most definitely the best.

Matariki At Waitangi

Last week on Tuesday Paihia School went to The Waitangi Treaty Grounds. We played games like Rakau and Maui Matou. We wove Flax Kites and had Kite Flying Competitions. We planted trees. Tessa and I planted Nikau. It was really awesome. When we walked back to School my legs were jelly and I nearly DIED from happiness and extreme tiredness!😆😫
