Saint Patrick’s 175th Jubilee

 On Friday I was with my Sister walking to room six class, She dropped me and she said ‘‘Bye!,’’ and I went to my class. My teacher ‘’Ms Kyle’’ told us to line up one row when I was about to eat my morning snack.  

 We walked a little rushed and ended up running because we’re always late! While we were at church, two of my friends were blocking the holy water when I was about to say, ‘’Hi,’’ but they were acting like strangers.

 I was in the middle of the line and I knelt down and did the sign of the cross. After doing that I sat at the end of the long chair and it was REALLY LONG. I couldn’t practise because of the interview. I wished my luck and sang with the people. After singing hymns, my priest, Father ’’ Iosefa,’’ did the Homily and the Body of Christ plus the blessing of Jesus.

So after all of the church things we all went outside and two of my friends dug up a big box that was locked but someone opened it. It was old pictures with someone with their classmates. I was wondering what happened but after all of that we went to my class and Ms Kyle said that we could do anything. She also said that we could eat our food, so I ate my food in class including lunch.

When the bell rang, we played football with the big kids and when the bell rang again, I brought my water bottle and hat and sat down. Mrs Bullot put me in a group and we went to Mrs Kyle. My leader gave Ms Kyle the points card. The game was to hit the ball with the bat and run to the first hoop, only for Room one and two.The second hoop was for Room six, seven, and eight.

 I was fourth in line, when it was my turn, I hit the ball and it went to a hole but was not stuck and I got three points. But one of my friends in my team broke the bat by accident, Ms Kyle said for us to use our hand. That was really hard but someone was walking to us and got us a plastic hard bat. The bat we used before the plastic bat was table tennis. Our group names were also Irish about food or a thing in Ireland.

I had a great day, it was the most unique Saint Patrick’s day and one hundred and seventy fifth Jubilee. We also have not had Saint Patrick’s Celebrations in three years! Here are photos of what happened on Friday Mass and Sunday!













Learning More Cyber-Smart tips and shortcuts.

Today, on Wednesday, we had a visitor coming to my class, Room six. Her name is Mrs Grant. She gave us tips about the touch pad or, some people say the track pad. She gave us slides about the touch pad and  the short cuts of the computer, like control T. The thing that I enjoyed was the touch pad and learning about the new shortcut.

Here are 2 photos of the things I am doing.



This is me; Jaeden

Kia ora! My name is Jaeden, I go to Saint Patrick’s School. I am in Year 5 and my teacher is Mrs Agnew. My favourite subject is Reading and writing and maths and science and drawing and I enjoy learning about  drawing and finding information about dinosaurs and guitar and piano.  I am good at maths, sports and science about dinosaurs.  My goal for this year is to Research 100 pages of dinosaurs and improve my guitar and piano. In my spare time I like playing my tablet,  guitar and piano and researching dinosaurs and doing my kumon.                          


My Ramadan and Ein Colouring

This is my picture that I coloured for Summer Learning Journey 2022. I coloured it with different colours. Facts about my picture:

It is actually a coloured plate that was used as a potting wheel. It was used in North India in towns and cities.

It was used to collect leftover water from plants.


This is my picture I coloured, it looks different than the original one.

Preparing for Athletics Day

One Hour and thirty  minutes ago, Room six and I went for a lesson to practice for  athletics day. When Room six and I were there at the field in our school, there was this coach and we called Him Coach Bart. He said that we will learn some tips for Athletics Day  (November the 18th).

At first we had to run while crouching all the way which was a little hard because we were running. Then we tried running on our toes, and it was pretty easy but when we walked on our heels, it was hard. Coach Bart said we that must  only look straight and run on our toes.

The first game that we played was called ”Sheep dog”, If you were a sheep, you will have to run away from the sheep dog (holding the noodle), and if you got hit by the noodle below the hip, you will have to go anti-clockwise around the box and then you can go back in. If you were a Sheep dog, you had to try and get all the sheep at once. Also if you don’t run all the time, you will get exchanged by a new person.

After that, we had to get into groups of four so I was with Nicole, Olivia and Graziel. We had to go into a line and I was the first one, We had to run, when he said “On your marks, get wet, go.”It doesn’t matter if you are slow, just focus on your goal to run. When all of us in my group had a few runs, and when we reached our goal to the end, we had to go back and go left and back to our group,Now after that we had to try and get the person in front of you, Olivia was trying to get Graziel and Nicole was trying to get me,

When we finished some rounds of running, Coach Bart gave all of  us a Plushy and Room six and I had to go into one straight line. After that we had to make our shoes touch the blue cone, then we had to put the plushy on our head so it could mark our height. Then we had to make our shoes line up with the blue cone standing. After that we had to make our arm be like we were trying to reach something and also we had to go forward to not make ourselves fall over. We also had to try and jump like we were jumping on a motorbike. I fell on my first time but I reached my height, on my second time. I beat my height and I did not fall over. Coach Bart said for us to freeze and get our plushy to where we jumped. When Room six and I put the plushy to where we were, we had to go back to the blue cone and try and jump over my best jump. Well, I tried to jump over my best jump but I almost made it, and sadly I couldn’t beat my best Jump. After  that, Room six and I said goodbye and thanked coach Bart. Coach Bart went over the tips again and thenb we went back to Room six.

When we were back at Room six, we were all exhausted but we had a lot of fun. Even though some of us couldn’t run or couldn’t pass our height and also reached out of breath, we still made the one thing that coach Bart said to my teacher. We had to listen to  coach Bart at ALL times or else  we wouldn’t know what to do and respect him also. For our Recount practice, we started to blog and post the things we remembered from the lesson we had from coach Bart. I wasn’t actually tired but we sat on the mat in Room six and Mrs Agnew helped us get some ideas for this blog I am writing right now.
