Fifita's new broom

Malo e lelei,

In Samoa they have these brooms too but they might make it a little different. AS you can see we had been working on Fifita's new broom.This is the method,material and an image to make pretty cool.

Animal poem

A few days ago we were reading a poem about an animal. As you can see my animal was a humpback whale. The reason way I did a humpback whale is because it comes to my island of Tonga! They come to Tonga to lay their eggs.

All about me part 2

Malo e lelei

My name is Dominic, and I am back  again. I am now a year six in room 10. I first felt so scared the first time I stepped in this class. I felt like another atmosphere was here. OK lets go back to the subject. My favourite sport is rugby. I play rugby in Cornwall park next to one tree hill. My team name is Carlton green. I play forward hooker and I love to run, jump and sleep every day. My favourite subject is history and maths, The reason why I love history is because I want to be an archaeologist and find lost things. My favourite thing to do is to research things like animals, dinosaurs and many other things. I am a Tongan christian who love to eat. I came to New Zealand about six years ago. My mum said the reason why I came to New Zealand was to learn the English language. I love coming to school and I love to eat at school. My best friend is Peni, he is the best freind I know. He has been beside me when I needed him and we always laugh and play around in class. My other friends are Tristan, Brazie, Kain and last but not least Konzay. I really enjoy my new class and my new Chromebook. I still love to make people happy and I love to make people laugh. I love to be creative and make arts and craft.
