Who cracked the window?!

Hello. Image result for crack window outside

Detective Mina here.
Today we have a crime of a cracked window in
a school called Edgewagter college.

Two days after I came to the school
and one of the teacher’s here told me
about the cracked window.

‘’I was having my lunch with some of the teacher aides before I heared a crack near the deck windows.
I didn’t bother because
I was telling the teacher my awesome stories’’.

I wrote Kevin’s quote down on my notebook as
I looked for some students who
were near the deck. One student said,

‘’Oh I was to busy talking to my friends outside the deck,
I did see a ball hitting the window really hard
at the time. I think it was a ball but
I’m not sure, anyway,  
do you have a donut?’’.

I asked him some questions like
‘’did you see who throw the ball?’’
Who do you think it could be?’’
He then told me something important
‘’I think it one of the boys out at the field,
they always play harsh’’.

I looked at the crack window as
I saw something like a bomb being
blasted near the window.
I then saw someone approaching me,
It was Blake, my partner in crime,
using his iPad to talk. He then said,

‘’I know who did it, follow me’’
He then started walking to the meeting room
and  I followed him.
I sat down on a chair with him.
He thinks that It’s Shyama!

I wasn’t that shocked.
Before I looked for more people to interview.
I used a scanner to spot who’s fingerprints was on the glass.
I looked at her before saying
‘’I already knew it was you all long,
how? Why you forgot to wear gloves’’

Shyama laughed evilly before saying
‘’I wanted you guys to caught me
but sadly I have to  leave.
It was nice having you two, bye bye!’’
She then use a smoke bomb before vanishing.
I tried to grab her arms but she was gone already.
I’m now writing this in my office three days after
and sadly I still haven’t fond her.
I print out a lot of “wanted posters”
while getting my team to stick them everywhere.

The big basketball game

Yesterday my Mum dropped me off to the Barfoot & Thompson Stadium in Selwyn College at around nine thirty and was pretty early. So we waited for my class to come. At around nine fourty five, I saw my class coming in school vans. I was feeling very nervous at first because I didn’t know how well I would do and also didn’t practice that much because of my left leg was not well. We walked up these stairs and had our morning tea while talking to our friends from different schools. Our first game was with The Tamaki Giants and I was very much nervous. The game started and I was screaming so loud to my teammates to work together. My teammates tried their hardest, but we lost in the game by seven to two. I was still proud of my team and both The Tamaki Giants and my team shook hands while saying good game. Our second game was with the Pakuranga 3 and I was playing with my team, and we ended up winning by eleven to two. I was very proud of my team. We had our lunch before playing our final game with the MRI Strikers and I was very excited but also a bit nervous. I was playing once again with some of my teamamtes and everyone was bouncing the ball or shooting it in the basketball hoop. I had the ball and I literally shoot the ball in the hoop and got a goal. I was very much shocked. When I shot the ball in I was very proud of myself and we won the game by seven to three. I was mostly proud of my friend Angus who worked very hard in our final game. My Mum came to us and told me that she was watching me playing as she was very proud of me. We took a group picture at the end of the day.

Mina Poems collection

~ Friendship ~

Finding new friends

Real friends










Winter smells like breakfast in bed.
It looks like fun to ski and run.
I feel good sitting by a warm fire
place dressed in my cosy coat and hat.
Tasting hot chocolate and snuggle down with my cat.

Sally my friend.
(Nonsense Poem)

Sally went inside a dark alley.
She was with her baby sister Yanny.
Sally and Yanny heard are sound.
The sound was a crying Tammy
who was very hungry.

Heading to Te Oro!

On Thursday last week my class and I want to Te Oro in Glen Innes to check out everybody’s art work. I went there with my Mum and Dad because I live near to Te Oro. My Mum and Dad stayed with me for a few minutes and checked out a class who was singing and playing with sticks. After watching the performance my Mum and I went to check out our Polluted sea class we worked on with EWC 3 and saw a lot of rubbish my class and edgewater 3  had collected from home and our  class made the Blow fishes, eels and our turtle! I smiled when i saw the polluted room and even saw some bean bags from our classroom. I then said goodbye to my Mum because my Mum and Dad had to go back home.  I painted Volcano’s and helped create a Volcano art sculpture with some of my classmate. We then went to another room to made bags with Shelley and it was fun making bags with my classmate. I went to my favourite room which was the ICT room with Matthew, Thiha and Kaine and made music. I had so much fun but then I had to get find the rest of my class and my Mum and Dad because they were leaving. While going back to them I saw Julia artwork which was a very beautiful Mountain and then went to my Mum and Dad. I said goodbye to my class as I ran with my Mum and Dad to their van because it started raining and went back home.

Turning bush into Butter

This photo is an Informal photograph taken at Winiata near Taihape. It was also taken when new technology made it easier to photograph what went on in the world outside the studio. I can see one cat, two dogs and two cows in this photograph. Mum and dad are milking the house cows. The family nationality is Maori. This photo was taken by  Edward George Child. You had to burn down native bush if you wanted to get rid of it for farming. It was  hard work that went into making and running a farm but it also had a negative impact on our forests. Gone forever. The photographer show part of a forest which is still alive  and a lot of burnt trees in the background. The good and the bad.
