ki o rahi

Last Thursday, coach Chelsea played us a video called the legend of Rahi. The characters were Rahi and Tiara. Rahi is the man and Tiara is the woman and was married to Rahi. She asked us questions afterwards and only two people were answering her. 

She was going to teach us how to play a game called ki o rahi, but sadly we could not play because it was raining, so she couldn’t set up the equipment so we played other games. We were doing lots of running in the tagging games that we played. They were called octopus, rats and rabbits, infinity tag where all of us were in. I was so tired when I played that game that I got bumped off by someone but I was Ok. I had so much fun when we were playing these new games.

Making a tree house


Last term we were reading and talking about the book called The Tree Hut Treaty. We made our own Class Treaty and then our teacher said we were going to design and make our own tree huts in the last week of term.


I brought a recycled box and a big, plastic Sprite bottle from home. I first filled the big bottle with some water for my tree trunk. Then I got my box and my teacher glued the box with hot glue onto the big bottle.

After that I started to decorate my box with lots of interesting extra stuff. I first cut out some windows and used some brown paper for the curtains of my windows.Then I added some polystyrene for some pillows inside the tree house and also I put some on the top of the box for some hair.

I took some heavy off cuts and placed them on the top of the roof as a bed. Then it was complete. Yes, it turned out to be a tree hut that looked like a person!

When I started to paint I used blue for the pants and white for the t-shirt. Then I painted the box red and then it was complete.

The exciting part was when  the testing began. First we had to check that our tree huts would not get blown over in the wind (or the classroom fan!) We counted to ten and all of our tree huts were successful. Then we had to check for weight and see if they could hold four pairs of scissors. Finally we had to check whether our huts were watertight and when we poured water over them whether they would leak. I was successful with all the criteria and I was very proud and happy.

About me




Kia orana my name is Marii. I am 8 years old. I go to St Patrick’s  school and my class is Room 6. I am a Year 4 and my teacher is called Mrs Agnew. I am a Cook Islander, Tongan and a New Zealander and I sometimes can speak my languages and often very well. My mum has German blood as well and I think it is very cool. I have two brothers who are older than me and I am the only girl. I live with my mum and dad and they are really awesome.

I am good at cricket because I can hit the ball a long way and it sometimes goes on the roof. I enjoy being at school because I have no one to play with at home but at school I have my friends to play with. My challenge is maths because it is so hard to try and solve the things that I can not solve. My goal for this year is trying to understand new words when I do not know what they mean.

My dad  makes our lunches early in the morning. I achieved a first grade 1 in my piano lesson and I am kind of good at playing the piano. I really like connecting with other people and am looking forward to sharing my blog. The person that  inspires me is my dad because he drives us from home to school then from school to home.I am looking forward to sharing my blog with you.
