Punch Hero


  Punch Hero

Punch hero Is an app on the playstore. It Is mostly played on pc (computers) or mobile touch phones. It doesn't take heaps of space If you download It. Its an entertaining game but remember Its just a game nothing real Its just a game.

When you click the game or open It you will decide to play arcade mode, zombie mode or amateur league. You can upgrade your punches buy winning rounds to collect cash or gold coins. Cash Is hard to get because you usually have to win the championship round.

If you're like me and I have upgrades my Punches, my jabs and my uppercut moves It will be easy to verse that other your playing. I got Into this game today this year because a student In my class called”Antonio” showed me It, so I got the app on my phone and started get use to It.

If you have played street fighter before you will understand how to play.  Jabs are the weakest punch, but they’re also the quickest. It's easy to get caught by quicker hooks (like Straight punches) for critical damage when spamming jabs.

Te Tuhi Trip

This morning we had a great experience at the Te Tuhi art gallery in Pakuranga. The reason why we went there was because our theme Is “Art Attack”. As we arrived to the Te Tuhi art gallery  Jeremy was our instructor just for the morning. Jeremy showed us a few things about the art on the walls before he introduced his friend “Luisa”.

We had time to ask him questions during the first block of time when we were in the art room. When were looking and feeling the examples of tapa designs he asked us what it does it feel like to me, everyone on our table said”It felt like nam bread”.

Step by step Jeremy had told us to draw 4 things thats got to do with family, interest, home and culture. For my interest I drawn a rugby ball but it looked like a football. There were many ideas about culture but I had to choose 1, It was the mana flag. It was pretty hard to focus on Jeremy

It was that time we were finishing off the last block. We looked at water and dams, did you know New Zealand can hold heaps of water with any old dam. Jeremy took us back near the Te Tuhi center on the ground. We all said our thank you’s and goodbyes as we walked out of entrance.

Why do we need to sleep?

Why do we need to sleep?

So we can rest our bodies for the next day and especially If you just finished events like athletics or you had a hard day at work. It is important to go sleep early so our brain is turned on the next day. At Pt England School(P.E.S) some of the students in my class are tired because they usually stay up late.

Why do we need to sleep? teenagers need about 9 hours on average. For most adults, 7 to 8 hours a night appears to be the best amount of sleep. Although some people may need as few as 5 hours or as many as 10 hours of sleep each day.

Sleep gives your body a rest and allows It to prepare for the next day. Sleeping also gives your brain a chance to sort things out for the next day. If you are told to go sleep by your parents you should because what will happen If you Ignore them.

If an adult gets fired its because they would of not had enough sleep. Adults that are late for work can be fired or their boss can give them a few chances. Some adults and teenagers have habits of coming late to work because what if they had to do something for a friend or their family or drop their kids off at school .

Yr 8 Camp

                              Camp was awesome!!!

During the weekends I got my gear ready for the next day. On the way to school I was feeling excited for camp because I'm gonna be far away from Auckland. As everyone arrived All the year 8’s had to meet up in the hall to see what groups there in. Each one of us had to at least help put the gear into the bus and then take a seat in the bus.

Siting way at the back of the bus I waved to mum as the bus slowly driven off.
Kicking back with the boys and playing on our phones felt good because I finally get a break from doing things.

Marsden is a peaceful place to live and also very quite. It was my first time going to Ruakaka especially camping there. I searched Ruakaka camp online and it showed heaps of fun things try out like the flying fox, water slide and even archery!.

We stopped at an unfamiliar place which I had no idea of. Everyone got off the bus and choose a spot to sit at. My friends and I were skimming rocks before we all go for a 1 hr  walk. Ooh man I heard we had to walk over to get to the other side. every one had to take of the shoes because the water is pretty deep.

My mates and I thought it would be safe but most of us were slipping and getting very muddy. (John) JK was helping the students that needed help and JK also helped me. I couldn't believe my good looking shoes are now dirty.

We all had a break on the side of the road and a few minutes later we all started walking towards the beach. It was about a 20 minutes walk to get to the beach. Yes! were there.
Everyone had a great time at the beach but we had to go. In the bus we usually sing a song then every sings.

We are finally at camp!. The first thing we did was packing our gear into the our cabins and then everyone lined up to see what were doing. The people In my cabin are Frankie, Logan, Antonio, Lukis and I.

Day 2:
Early In the morning my feet were freezing like If I was In a freezer. Mrs Nua told all the boys to follow her to the big huge field. I was surprised that we had to do 2 laps of jogging around the whole field. After breakfast we had activates and the first one was archery. My turn was after Howard and I Was confused that I might miss the target but when it was my turn after my fourth arrow I finally got the bullseye!!. It was Jorja's turn and she was doing good, It was supposed to be my turn after her but she lost one of  the arrows.

After lunch we had lunch we had free time. Antonio and I went to play volleyball in the rain. The rain killed the games because It was getting slippery and dangerous. I had just stepped In the dining room and all I heard was was thunder and lightning that struck my eye.

Day 3:
Real early in the morning Isara came into our room so we got up, but then we quickly ran back into bed because one of the adults were coming. I checked the time on my phone and it was only 3:00am!!. I closed my eyes and rested until 7:00.

Half an hour after morning tea my group Ruakaka B headed down towards the kayaks at this little area with heaps of water. Mrs Samuels showed us some techniques before entering the kayak. Antonio, Neo and I were versing each other at how fast we can go.

Tonight were are gonna watch a movie and I think Its "Here comes the boom". Of cause It gonna be here come's the boom because Isara and I told Mrs Nua If she can please please play it tonight. 
After a few games at night everyone gathered up with there pillows and blankets and enjoyed the movie as It starts. Is was a good entertaining movie.

Day 4:

Today Is the last day for all of us yr 8's and helpers. Mrs V Our leader was giving everyone a duty's to do and our duty's were to clean the toilets. Antonio and I cleaned the adults toilets and the rest of the boys the other toilets. After every one did there duty's we all gathered up on the deck and group by group went to get there morning tea and lunch. When every one got there food the boys took a group photo.

 In the bus I herd It was gonna be long until we arrive to Wai wera. It was a silent bus ride because some of the teachers were sleepy. Lorenzo and I were just at the back of the bus thinking of what water slide were gonna go on.

Yes were there and everyone got of the bus and had a stretch. We got changed into togs and got half an hour of doing anything. The first thing I went on was the speed slide then the twist slide. I have been here a few times but It Is still the same.

Oh man we on our way back to Auckland. At least all of us had a great time. Some of my highlights were having fun with my mates and having a great time.

Thank you Mrs Nua for this great opportunity.

Why Is It Important To Be On Time?

It is important to be on time so that people are focused and ready. If you are not on time for school that means you will miss out on important information and you will not know what to do. To be on time you will also have to go sleep early around 7:30 or 8:00pm.

At our school Pt England the Intermediate block has to be at school by 8:30am. The rest of the school have to be at school by 8:50am. If a student is late and they have a note, they will avoid detention, but if you don’t have a note and you're late you will have to have a talk with the teacher otherwise you're on detention.

Adults that are late for work can be fired or their boss can give them a few chances. Some adults have habits of coming late to work because what if they had to drop their kids off at school or do something for their family. If an adult gets fired its because they would of not had enough sleep.

I mainly come to school every day so that I can become future focused and ready to learn. Some students in my class come very late because they usually walk to school from far away.

Why are class school rules are important?

Rules are important in our childhood cause what would happen without rules. Without rules There will be a lot of disrespectful people, things missing and a lot of thefts. At Pt England School there are heaps of rules especially for the intermediate block. One of the rules for the intermediate block is that you must take your shoes off before entering a classroom.

With rules It would be safer for children so when they grow up they will have a good education. Respect is one of my main things that i do. In my class most of the students are respectful but we also got thefts because last week on friday About 5 to 3pm my netbook went missing so i had a look around everywhere but i couldn't find it.

If all schools in NZ had no rules at all there will be a lot of consequences and Heaps of meetings with the teachers if you pick the wrong choices. I reckon I am use to the rules at school.

Term 4 Immersion Assembly

               Good bye school holidays

Welcome back Point England!. It is now term 4 which means the theme for this term is now called” Art Attack”. This means we are learning something different from last term which is something around art attack. So that means This year we are focusing on art and making art.  

It was going to see my friends walking through the gates just in time for class, also I’ve seen some of them around the area during the holidays. “Art Attack” Mr Burt shouted in the assembly. Almost our whole class was here but some of them were away. We started our day with a welcome back Pt England and carried on with the items.  

Team 1 held the first item but instead of making a movie, they performed instead. Their performance was about the beach having a picnic and having fun. For some children it can be hard for them to understand especially the new entrance but at least it was entertaining. After the video clip the teachers were dancing and throwing lollies to the audience.

Team 2 performed after the video clip they played. It was about primary colors and when you mix two colors it makes another colour. Mostly the little kids enjoyed the video.

Team 3 was about art. There were all sorts of artist like Da Vinci and Andy Warhol. Most of the teachers were dressed up as an artist. Mrs Barks is usually the person that always talks for every item she has been in.

Team 4 Held A funny item about who's got the best art. Mr S was the funniest out of all of the teachers because he tried speaking a French accent but used a Russian accent. The artist with the best art should of been Mr S but it was another artist. I reckon everyone enjoyed the item.  

Yes its now team 5’s item. All the teachers got into groups of two and started painting. As they were painting there used black and white paint. I had no idea what they were painting until they flipped it around.
