Athletics day

It was a long hot day when the sun went up above the horizon and shone on the land, I woke up from my long sleep and got ready for Athletics day. First of all do you know what Athletics is? It is a the sport of competing in track and field events, including running races and other events like jumping and throwing.

I got to school and saw Mr J get the lines for the class’s,I saw my class and Hine Moana I shouted go hie moana. Then I went to Mr Burt (The Principal) with my buddy Ajani and told him that we need to get the cameras for Photographers, I’m a photographer for the school and I take photos for PENN our school news.

My favourite event was sprints, until the race began. I stood ready to run for the finish line but I was nervous, like a lion trying to get across the river to the other side, Set  said Mr burt and he smacked the two pieces of wood together which means  Go!!! I sprinted but sadly fell I got upset a bit but I got over it and it was alright I had a great time and went home. The end.

Ant Boy wows Manaiakalani Film Festival 2015


Our term three inquiry was about Trade and Enterprise. During this term we didn't just learn about business but also about how people's emotions influence their decisions. As a class we learnt about empathy and "putting ourselves in someone else's shoes." We then took this quote and created a fun movie to share this concept. We also shared it with hundreds of people at the Manaiakalani Film Festival. I was one of the lead actors in this outstanding movie!
We hope you enjoy Ant Boy as much as our audiences did.

Noah's Holiday Highlight

Would you want to come to a camp?, with a foam cannon or have a disco party or play fun games like fun water games?. Well on the 1st week of the holidays my school Pt England had a camp, this camp is called Riverside camp at willow park, willow park has been on for I think more than twenty five years now.

We first went to school and sorted out our medicine, and bags, I put my bag in the first bus. I got inside and I sat with my friend Ajani, then we drove off, I said goodbye to my mum and my little brother Toby. I was so excited going to willow park for an entire week.

We got to camp and took all the gear to the dining area. I put my stuff upstairs in my cabin. I Sorted out my gear and then made up a name we were called the simbarians, what was cool is that after that we had morning tea, everyone went for the cookies and water, then we had lunch and dinner and after dinner we went to sleep. The loud hooter (wake up call) rang and woke us all up WOOOOO!!! , at first I thought it was the fire alarm. I told myself

I got dressed and rushed down to the gym. Some people were there and some people were still getting there, the reason why we went down to the gym from Monday to Wednesday we did jump jam and Thursday and Friday we did runs. On Monday we did made up jump jam, I was trying to stay awake for the entire Jump Jam. after that we had our little Bible study with our entire group, then we went down stairs and had breakfast. I always got porridge not weetbix not corn flakes but yummy delicious porridge.

Before the Quad Bikes and free time we had to practice our items for the concert night on Thursday but I won’t tell all of it, it will be too long. So back to the story, after finishing our dancing concert practise we were aloud on Mini Golf, tennis, bikes, green machines and the Quad Bikes when he said we could go I ran to the Quads and went in line and had a few turns then did the same as yesterday had lunch, Dinner, then went straight back to my bed said our prayers and shut my eyes and had a good night sleep.

Noah's Creative Story Starter

The Terrifying Escape
Walt: use adverbs to make our writing exciting. 
As I walked down a hill I heard something, something that was big and loud. Every time it got louder I felt more Horrified, I turned around then I looked down, I didn't see anything down there. So I stared up and still did not see a thing except for hills the sun, clouds and the sky.


I followed the sound hastily until I saw a massive aircraft. I was in an enormous shock!, It sort of looked like it was going to crash. I started walking backwards then began to jog after that it was about 20 feet above me. At that point I was Sprinting as fast as I could, hoping it will go straight over my head. It smashed on the ground but it was still moving towards me, I kept running until I tripped up on my lacer. I knew I could roll to the other side without getting hit. It was risky I thought of it then did it, I rolled to the side and when I looked down the propeller ripped part of my t shirt, it went straight over me, after that I caught a plane that hopefully would not crash and safely landed then drove home in my Toyota.


What would you feel like if you were in that situation.
Thank you for Reading my story Please leave a comment on my blog.

Noah's Holiday Highlight Recount Term 3 2015

Write all the adjectives you have to use here:
  • greedy
  • selfish
  • joyful
  • tiny
  • green


Start writing here:


Family Fun night!!! oh sorry I was just thinking about a night where my church and other people have fun, we bring Xbox 360 games, PS2 and dance central. Me Noah and my family are allowed to go because my Mum and Dad were part of the youth.


The first game that I played was this car racing game, me and my brother Jordan were playing the game like it was the hardest game in the world, Jordan beat me a lot of times but one race I won. he was a little greedy, In that game there is not only racing but also crashing competitions


After that Jordan started to get selfish, he went away to play another game which was dance central, but then it started to get boring so they changed it to kinect sports. Now kinect sports are when you can play Boxing,Soccer, Beach volleyball,Track and field and Table tennis. So my brother said to me do you want to play Track and field, now Track and field is when you run on a track not a green field, you also do olympic games like Sprint, Javelin, long jump, discus and hurdles .


After Jordan calmed down a tiny bit me and him were partners for boxing, I got ready and felt like Jordan was going to beat me. The bell rang and we were supposed to fight, he jabbed me a couple of times and I knocked him out twice, then we kept punching each other until the bell rang for the 2 round, after we played other games, and I won I was so Joyful that I won that time.


I hope that when it is family fun night you can come along and enjoy the fun.
We might bring other PS2 games instead of just one game.

Noah Teaching skills about Snowboarding

Hi my name is Noah, I just came back from snowboarding. If you read my story there are some skills that will help you for snowboarding if you get to know them for yourself. Have you ever been to Mt Ruapehu? It is not like Mt Wellington or Mt Eden. Mt Ruapehu is a mountain with snow, where people snowboard or ski on.


When we went snowboarding my Dad told me to do S’s (carving), instead of falling off a cliff.
I would rather snowboard down the hill then fly off the mountain! Snowboarding is pretty hard to do but when you know how to do it it’s easy.


I felt like a professional zooming past everyone doing my S’s.
I start by facing my board down the mountain with my left foot forward. You need to keep your knees bent - it’s kinda like riding a skateboard.


When you’re up on the mountain, how you do an S, is to look up the mountain, dig your toes into the snow and lift your heels up. You will end up facing up the mountain. That’s a toe side turn.


When you’re getting to close to the wall, and you’re about to crash and hurt yourself, you can switch to heels by looking down the mountain, digging your heels in and lifting your toes up. That’s called a heel side turn.


It’s easier to C’s before S’s. I went through that and it became much easier to do an S.
A C is half of an S, and instead of switching you stop after doing a turn one way.
After you switch from toes to heels and look back up the mountain, you see an S shape in the fresh powder.


Skiers have different techniques than snowboarders, because if you are a skier you do “pizza” and “chips”. “Pizza” is when you make a shape of a triangle, where the front of your skis are together and the back of your skis are facing outwards. It slows you down.
When you do “chips” your skis face straight and instead of stopping you go faster.


When I saw my brother, Levi, going on a jump, I wanted to go but I felt a bit nervous.
Then I saw my brother Jordan do a jump, and I decided to have a try at going on it too.
So there I was, strapping my bindings in and waiting for my turn.
I snowboarded down the hill toward the jump, doing an S and I lined my board up… and at the right moment, I went up the ramp and jump. I felt terrified when I was in mid-air but I didn’t land it properly so sadly slide down the ramp on my stomach. I was embarrassed a bit and got a little angry so I decided to go on the poma by myself to get back up to the top again (it took ages!)


I was on the poma, made it to the top, I strapped in one foot and pushed my board to the jump again just in time to see Levi go up the ramp but land hurtfully on his shoulder.
On my second chance on the jump, getting a little nervous, strapped both legs in and took off!
Down the hill, I glared at it and thought “line the board up Noah”.
I lined my board up and bent my knees and took the jump - flying through the air like Superman, landed safely after the jump and dug my toes in to turn out of the way of the others coming down.


Me and Levi wanted to go up high so we caught a chairlift and it was called Movenpick up, up we went above the snowy and icy trails. While we were up there, the wind was blowing so hard that our chair rocked from side to side and I was able to touch the pole that was holding the cable to our chairlift. When it was time to get off the chairlift, the Lift guy told us to duck down so that it would be easier to ride off the chairlift. I didn’t make it any other time but good for me my Dad put gripy spikes so that my board will not be slippery, I made it and strapped in once again and went down the mountain doing S’s. Then we got in the car and traveled home. Screen Shot 2015-07-17 at 5.11.59 pm.png


I hope that when you snowboard you can learn your S’s and I’m not only talking to kids I mean anyone who want’s to snowboard.

Noah's Game Animation





Would you like to play a better game than old boring games like Run1 and Run 2.
There is a New game coming out in 2016. My game is called Running Stickman. By the way the creator who is making this game is called Noah. The lead character in this game is called Powerman. You use him to defeat the enemies.


Powerman is a stickman that can kick zombies and slice bad mushrooms. He slices them with his infinity sword. First he comes out of a Magic portal which ends up under ground. That’s level one so its pretty easy.


Then Powerman climbs up a tall ladder and reaches the surface. He ends up in China where there's a zombie waiting to eat him. Try and kill it. When you beat the zombie you have to try and get up on to the roof and defeat the bad mushroom.


Powerman goes through the next portal where he ends up on a boat. Flash! A lighting bolt strikes it and the boat blows up. He is now underwater. He gets his snorkel on so he can breath and starts to swim. He finds underwater mushrooms and zombies with snorkels and starts an underwater level.


I think this will be a better game than other games like Run 2,
hope you like my game please leave a comment on my blog.

Noah's Paragraph writing- Chimp in Space

A space Chimp bravely walks out into the icy milkyway. If you can see behind the  chimp that's planet earth, but a Russian chimp discovered planet Malgor and on that planet was weird aliens he so wanted to go but he was to young his name was comet.

Then comet wanted to go so he went into the Rocket, 2 minutes later he was playing around and accidentally switched on the boosters and in 20 seconds he was gone in the air. Now he's in space amazed that he started floating because there was zero gravity.

The Rocket crash landed on planet Malgor It did not look like Earth. Then he opened the door and he heard screaming and shouting he ran to help and so aliens running towards him, he asked a alien and he said “it’s Zartog the Destroyer!”

There was Zartog freezing other aliens and making them as stachus. Then comet had an adea to push Zartog into the freezing icy water, that if he pushed him in Zartog could freeze to death. So comet put little cars behind him so when he pushes him he will slip and fall in.

So there he was in front of Zartog,but Zartog recognised that he was up to something he spoke “who are you and where do you come from” comet replied “I am comet a space chimp” and I’m here to destroy you, and as he moved closer and closer comet yelled “ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!” and as he shouted Zartog ran backwards as fast as he could. Zartog fell in and froze everybody wondered what happened to him, then someone shouted hooray he's gone and as they had a amazing party comet got into his Rocket and flew off back to Earth.

My Adventure at the Farm

Kia ora, Konichiwa,Talofa, kia orana and greetings to you all, by the way if you do not know me I am Noah. I go to Point England school, Every Year My Mum and Dad Help organise a camp for our youth to go to, it's HM Rage it's in Matamata. What do you think HM Rage means? Well I do, it means Her Majesties's Rage. I do not know why they called that but they do,While they are there me and my brothers Jordan the 2nd oldest and Toby the youngest, my oldest brother goes to Rage. We go to our friends parents Farm I love it there. it's so much fun, but it would be so awesome to go to rage. The reason why we don't go to HM Rage is that were to young. You have to be year nine or up to go.


When we go to the farm, Every morning I wake up at 6:30 and get ready to shift the Friesian cows and jersey cows. So we would get our Thermals on and warm track pants then I grab my warm snowboarding jacket and a beanie, when we go out side we put on our gumboots. Mr Wallace our caretaker drives his quad bike and attaches a trailer to the back. Then he would start the engine, the engine Roared like as if it was a lion ready to pounce on it's prey. then the clock struck 7:00am we hopped on the back and we were off.


We were on the stinky fields and it looked like it was made out of poo. A lot of cows made a noise like this "Moo" there were a Electric fences and wood fences, we drove up to the hills and saw the oldest cows we drove in and went down the field. It was so scary because they were so close to us that I felt like screaming, we shifted them and one was left behind the fence. We asked Mr Wallace to chase it away, when we were running to chase the cow It jumped over the fence and started to run.

Noah's Game Review


The game is Run, the point of the game is to pass a hard obstacle. your  
character is an alien, who runs in space to the next level  and it gets  
harder and harder.
