Once upon a time there was a Nogard playing volley ball. Then his friends came and they were playing Volley  ball  three vs three and the teams are called Real Madrid vs Japan.  Real Madrid had the game and they were cheering for Ronaldo.  Ronaldo scored a goal and they were playing under the sea and it was on Saturday.  Bale scored a goal and  the Nogard scored as well.  Real Madrid won the game and they were good at volley ball. They were the best in the sea.  The Nogard's friends lost the game. All of the people went to the shop The Nogard wanted to play with the other people that are good. The Nogard went to get a gaol and to win the game. Real Madrid won the game. Ronaldo was the one that scored in that team.

I'm a firework By Lily R

I wait on the side of the road to be bought by a stranger.
I see someone coming but they took another firework.
Someone else came and finally took me Put me in a big dark box. I think they were driving me home. I wondered why I wasn't light up yet. I realised it wasn't dark yet. I waited and waited. It is now time to show my specialty.
KA - BOOM ! I go up in the air I see the beautiful city. I am gorgeous. I am red, green, blue and purple. Everyone was looking at me thinking I was pretty. I  saw over amazing fireworks while I was in the sky. It wasn't long before I fell into your home. I can't wait for next time I go up and be a new firework with exciting colours.

The Two Sailors by Michayla D

Guy Fawkes by Anna


The fireworks is pretty because it has colours like yellow green Blue.Water coming out like yellow water coming out sparkles. And when you go close it sometimes stink come out like steam and it sounds like boooom crash!
And it might looks like it's going to explode. And it's looks it's like it's going explode. And  it's like a star with shining like a star. And it up in the sky like a rocket. with glammy fire with orange.

Fireworks by Siena

Fireworks Sound like a volcano just exploded and it feels burning hot and it looks like fire. It is very pretty. When they go to sky they go very fast and they make loud noises. They come in lots of different colours. Fireworks are so pretty. Firework make really really really loud noises when they go into the sky! Fireworks are beautiful. Fireworks are my favourite thing that go up in the sky.

Fireworks by Georgia

Fire works
Fireworks are so beautiful they can be any colours like pink orange and blue.
The fireworks are so hot that's why it is smoking and you can
not touch. They are so super beautiful like the
moon flashing with the star.

Marae Noho by Lennox King

Marae Noho
By Lennox King

In the weekend I went to a Marae Noho with my Dad. The Kapa Haka  group came for a sleepover too.
First we got welcomed onto the Marae and people spoke. We touched noses after Brian spoke. Then we sang songs and ate food. I had lots of cake!
The night was not fun. We had to stay outside while the people were making the beds and it was cold. We couldn't find our sleeping bags and our bags because they mixed them up.
I got to sleep at midnight, so half the night awake and half the night asleep.
The next morning we were awake early because everyone was jumping over our sleeping bags. The little ones fell on us.
Then we had breakfast and I had  a Milo and toast, and scrambled eggs.
After breakfast we packed up, but we stayed a little bit longer and went home in the afternoon.
I felt extremely happy!

We had a fabulous event in the library today where Griffin and his club launched some of the games they have been creating.  They showed us what they had made and how they made them.  They presented some clear explanations about how the games work and answered some interesting questions from other learners.

Here are the links to their games:

Griffin's game

Sky Dive

We then learned that Macklin was doing a similar thing for his breakthrough, so he shared his game too.

Macklin's game

Then all of the game developers got together and shared ideas for what they could do next.

The programme they used to make these games was Flowlab.  Keep an eye out because if you would like some help getting started making your own games, we will have another event in the library where they will show us how.

Test Time by LH8

This is Hub 8's 2015 entry for the Manaiakalani Film Festival. 

This film is about a group of learners who reluctantly begin a writing test given to them by their teacher. Their teacher has no idea that the learners have a sneaky plan to get out of doing the test. 

We hope you enjoy watching our film!

The Scary Hurricane By Mikayla T and Tanuki K

The Scary Hurricane
By Mikayla and  Tanuki

disgusting water
flooded home
ginormous waves
trees going side to side
trees almost coming off the ground
high waves
dancing trees
people taking photos
breaking homes
water coming on bridge  
dark hurricane
lights on
broken homes
trees smashed
leaves off  trees
water on rocks
water up stairs

Yellow by Emily S

On  yellow days.
I feel happy
Like the sun
shining brightly in the morning
through my bedroom window.

Yellow By Lily R

     like melting butter
on chocolate chip pancakes
on cold foggy mornings

Haunted Halloween By Ayami

Halloween Halloween in
the high night sky.
Make sure that you don't,
Get scared of night.
You better sleep
Before the monsters,
Get your dreams.
I see lots
Lots of sweets,
In the earth
night sky.
What do you want
Dress in?
Do you want dress in
A vampire?
Whenever you want to
Whenever you feel like to.
Any time you want to
Dress into any monster, just ask
Me whenever you feel like it.
The End
