Our Blog

We are a year 5/6 (9-10 year olds) class from Bairds Mainfreight Primary School in Auckland, NZ.

You can see some of our learning that took place in Room 12 in 2010 and 2011.

NB: I have moved to a new school now so this blog is no longer active. You are still welcome to comment and look at the great fun we had over the past two years.

Thank you for all the lovely comments :)

After School News Crew Week 9

Just keeps getting better and better ...

Boo and Kitty - By Danielle

The door squeaked open and inside was Boos toys. Boo give the toys to Kitty she was happy. Kitty said
"Come here you!"then they went to the bed
"Kitty has to go now"
Then kitty leaves and Boo gets out of her warm light pink bed. Boo opens her closet and says "boo" but kitty was not there and boo's face is a sad sad face.

Basketball STARS

Both BMPS Girls and Boys Basket Ball teams are UNDEFEATED! "We are the champions!"

Last Good-Bye: By Zanitha

Watch this scene and then check out the writing below :)

Hearing the screeching door opening,Kitty looks directly at Boo in a sad kind of way. Suddenly,Boo gets so happy that she runs through her room, picks her well known toys and passes them to Kitty and Kitty says,
"Oh that's cute!"
While Boo picks another toy and squeezes it, Kitty says,
"That's very nice."
A few minutes later, Kitty carefully tosses the toys on the ground and picks Boo up saying
"Come here you."
They both laugh together in joy and happiness.
While Kitty tucks Boo in her warm pink bed,Kitty Says....."Kitty has to go now."
Boo points to her closet where they first met each other and then Kitty said
"No-ones coming out of your closet to scare you anymore."
Knowing Boo's sad face, Kitty gets it too.
His big blue eyes get watery and then he leaves her room through the closet.
Boo can't bare not to see Kitty again so she jumps out of her bed, goes towards her closet, and says "BOO."
But kittys not there.


As kitty wriggled the handle of the door it opened with a squeaky noise.
As soon as Boo saw her room she ran in squealing, looking around and then retreating to pull her friend kitty into her room.

Boo ran around her room picking up her toys and giving them to Kitty,
"oh that's cute, that's very nice!" were Kittys compliments on Boos toys.

Kitty ditched the toys on the floor and picked up Boo saying,
"COME HERE YOU!":) They both started laughing and Kitty tucked
Boo into her bed and they smiled at each other.

Then Boo pointed to her door and said something in her high pitched baby talk
and then pointed to the door.
"Nothings coming out of your closet to scare you anymore."
"Kitty" said Boo
"Kitty has to go." Kitty replied.
Boo stood up in her bed and embraced Kitty.
They stayed like that for a while and Kitty's big blue eyes were turning all watery with tears of sadness.

He finally stood up and went to the door-before leaving he looked back at Boo with even more sadness than and then turned back around and left.
When the door closed Boo got up and and ran to the door (she thought it was a joke)
and opened the door and said.........BOO but he wasn't there.

After School News Crew Week 5

Yay - we shot outside today - we had a wee bit of trouble with our mic so some of the sound is not so great. The main thing is we had FUN. Special cross-over from our friends at Bellaire Primary too!
