Auckland Art Gallery

On Friday the  21st of November the Year 5’s (and some year 4’s) of Pt England School went on a trip to the Auckland Art Gallery. We went by bus.  It was so loud in the bus. We went to see different artists paintings. I was so excited to see how artist’s had painted their painting’s.

Once we had arrived there we sat in the front of the Art Gallery and waited for them to open the doors. We all just sat in front of the building talking. Once the doors had opened five girls came out of the door. There names are Mandy, Alice, Charlotte and Linda. The first room we went in was the Studio. We done some drawing and painting. We were given a cardboard jar to cut out. When we had finished cutting out our jars we were given instructions, to think of a story that you could draw. I was really nervous that my pictures would turn out horrible. It took a while for me to think of a story to draw about. After I finished drawing my pictures I started painting. I drew  pictures of my sister, my cousin and I playing basketball.

After a wonderful time in the studio we had our morning tea. We went outside  of the art gallery and had our morning tea. I sat next to Daniella, Lotu, Kura and Loseli. After I had my morning tea i went and put my rubbish in the bin and had a little play on the stairs. I heard someone say something about groups then i just remembered that i was in Alfa’s group.

When our lovely quiet morning tea had ended I went to the Learning  Center with my group.
It was so fun. I saw this projector,  and I made a shadow of myself. It made a pink out line of my body. We spent about nineteen minutes in there. Alfa’s Dad and Mrs TePania just sat down and watched us play around. The boys in our group (Alfa, Phaezon and David) just done cartwheels in front of the projector.

It was a lovely time in the Learning Center. Then we had moved on. We went upstairs to where outside the cafe. Me Daniella, Loseli, Phaezon, David and Alfa started to play tiggy. Mrs Tepania and Alfa we’re laughing at us cause we took a while to tag each other.

I felt really happy at the Auckland Art Gallery.  It was so fun. I hope you enjoyed my story.

How to be a good Friend

How would you be a good friend? This morning i will explain to you three main ideas about Good Friends.

The first topic i will be talking for you today is’ Support’. Supporting a friend is being a great friend. If you are there to support them they will be there to support you. There might be a bully in your class that bully’s you, you still support that person, even if he/she is mean to you.

Second topic will be based on Comforting your friend. Comforting means the same as look after. For example: If you’re friend is crying you go up to him/her and comfort them. But sometimes it may not work. Sometimes  your friend might be so anxious and say to you “Get away and leave me alone”. But it doesn’t matter at least you were there.

The fourth topic i will be talking about is  ‘Be Polite’. Being polite also means to use your manners. There are four topics that can relate to be polite. First one is to say ‘Thank you’, Second you say ‘ Please’, Third say ‘Excuse me’ and last you say there names.

So remember to always Support others, Comfort others and be polite to others. It may make their day even more happier.
