Pen Pal Letter

Room 6
Halsey Drive School
106 Halsey Drive School Road
Auckland

Hi Dhruvi,

I received your letter and I also agree that we have a lot in common. Have you enjoyed term three so far. Some of the things in term three were challenging for me, so far the most challenging part was speeches since you had to stand in front of your class and deliver at least a three minute speech, and trust me my presentation wasn't anywhere near of what you would expect. At school I have quite a few friends and most of them are pretty amiable. But one of the most exciting events in term three is market day since you make handmade products and sell them for a reasonable price. The weather in Auckland is unpredictable, especially when it's a beautiful day with the sun shining luminously then all of a sudden it starts raining out of nowhere. Year six is an important and probably the most exciting year because we get to experience all sorts of things such as camp, different responsibilities, genius hours and so much more. Genius hour is pretty fun to do but it requires a lot of planning, most of the plans I have in my head work out perfectly but in reality they just aren't the way I imagined them. How is your term getting along? Anyway I really enjoyed writing to you and I hope to see you again.

Your Pen Pal, Naysha  

Aliens


Alien Diary Entries:

Siya :
Arising from my bed, I prepare myself for another day of plotting how to take over Earth, and those humans ( A scaleless creature that has a brain the size of a pea )  dressed like they are perfectionists but all the aliens know that they are truly monsters. One day, sooner or later, they will be our slaves as we will take over the world. Anyway, I have to now go to our S.A.B.M also known as special alien board meeting. Those stupid little pests have no idea what’s gonna hit them , they don’t even know we exist. Mwah, Mwah, Mwah.” So do we all agree to the fact that humans need to be taught a lesson”  were the words that my boss spoke. We all knew the answer to this question . “Yes “ we all said collaborated into one voice. We worked out our strategy and came upon the conclusion that we would attack tonight at 12 : 00. I can't wait for tonight were probably the thoughts that were flooding through everyone's brains. Those pesky humans thought they were safe but little did they know what was in store for them. Another small detail that we had to discuss was the fact that what would we do with those humans. Should we make them our slaves or make them into our desired possessions such as human skin ( blankets ), human blood ( a refreshing drink ) and even human kidneys ( stress balls ) ?   As the meeting came to an end , night had fallen upon us so we all scurried home to have dinner. Yum, yum , yummy in my tum, tum, tummy. Today I was going to devour some human jelly, human soup and even humans blood curry. Soon I had finished by meal and decided to call it a night but not before I apply by favourite nail polish, human nail polish. I applied strokes of nail polish all over my long perfect nails. Tonight I plan to take over Earth with all the other aliens. Have sweet dreams, my favourite diary. OMG, OMG, OMG , it is time to attack on those pesky, interfering humans. I quickly hurry to our UFO before they leave without me , the head boss and a couple of other aliens have arrived. We will have to wait.
10 mins later :
Our whole squad is here and we all sprint towards the main UFO ( the one our boss was in ) but unluckily some of our team have to get transported in another one of our other UFO ś . We zoomed through the sky and soon were about to land in an abandoned forest. Bye for now.









                                                     










Eliza:
Waking up in the life of an alien and organizing a plan to take over planet earth,  Ugh! Just seeing those brutal monsters taking over the planet that we’ve been trying to  take over for multiple years. Getting prepared for the S.A.M.B. so excited, Those pesky little parasites have no idea what is going to hit them, They don’t even know we exist!  ( In our S.A.B.M. it was time for our big fat head boss to speak. “It is time we put an end to this apocalypse’’ the head boss said. All of the others said “yes sir yes mwah ha ha ha.” “If anyone objects speak now or forever stay silent‘’ said the big fat  head boss. “I’m so hungry mmmm what should I eat today oooooh jelly, human soup or maybe human blood curry?? Yummy, yummy, yummy for my tum tum tummy. Ahhh I would love to have a manicure I haven’t had one in ages. Mmmmmmmmm what colour should I get for my nails? oh, how about human nail polish!”  The alien manicurist brushed the soft bristles of the nail polish brush over my nails then said, “Well that will be 10 asteroids please.” I gave her 10 asteroids and it was time for bed. I know we only own Mars but tomorrow is the day we take over planet Earth then we will own 2 planets!! mwah ha ha ha . Now i’m lying here imagining what things I could make out the human body’s like eyeball stress balls, a human skin coat and human flesh carpets that's something that would be in my alien house...

Naysha:
Rising as if I were the morning sun, I climbed out of my bed. My pleasant dream just had to end. As I walked to the S.A.M.B (Special Alien Board Meeting) wondering what my next action would be, “ Would we become friends with those lovely humans or would we finish them for good” . As I slammed the door behind me, there were thirty sets of eyes looking at me, as I awkwardly sat in my chair everyone started gossiping. Suddenly there were sound awaking footsteps that rose in volume as the head of the aliens approached. None of us had seen this head master especially me. From my perspective the head looked like a hideous mythical creature that hadn't had a manicure since ages, she had long nails that had grooved edges, a completely bald head with bits of hair sticking out from the ends and a very malicious voice, the other aliens would probably think she was pulchritudinous but not this particular alien. I chuckled silently, I mean who wouldn't laugh at a horrid alien that thinks she’s better than the rest. We couldn't really see the leader but since this was a very formal occasion we did and trust me I wouldn't want to see her again. “ For today's meeting I have called every single Alien on Mars, and the topic of today's meeting is humans”. Seriously why did it have to be humans because after all I am a human that had been kidnaped and turned into a stupid alien. I knew that later we would discuss something sinister. All eyes were on me including the head of Aliens. “Whoops didn't mean to say that out loud”, I said in a very shy tone. “Shall we continue”. Everyone one was going to reply but the cruel Alien continued, “ We are going to finish those humans for good and take over the world, Mwah ha ha  ha ha” she said as she rubbed her slim hands together vigorously. I was hoping that she didn't actually mean that, but boy I was wrong. The whole alien force had come up with a self explanatory strategy to conquer the world, and I didn't want to be a part of it. But in the end I expected to be one of those ghastly creatures that would conquer the world. But I didn't. I can thank myself later. As the meeting came to an end all us aliens got served blood human soup along with magic jelly imported from the Magic Kingdom and a beverage that was made of bubbling sprite with human eyeballs as well as ears. “Ewww” I mumbled. I just figured out that I was the only one who was complaining. I swirled and twirled and wirled and saw every single Alien digging in. As I started fake coughing I asked the head if I could leave the room. Taking the magic jelly only and hiding it in my sleeves as I really wanted to try it, I walked towards the door trying to act as casual as I could, but that didn’t go so well. As soon as I shut that door that lead to another trapping dimension behind me I ran, as fast as I could until I reached my UFO home. That was a long day. But I can't wait for tomorrow as I would be back to my normal self since being a fake Alien only lasts a day. The night had come so early that the stars were glistening right above me. I looked up and knew that I would never have to be in an Alien's shoes for a day. Good night and sweet dreams. As i’m locking up my precious box of secrets and hiding the key under my dreamy pillow. I knew I could only trust you. See you next time my dear diary! Bye for now. “Ahhh” as I lay in bed glancing up at the ceiling having a short grin on my face, wondering what kind of day tomorrow has kept for me.

Play - How aliens plan to take over Earth
Short play

Characters:
Naysha: Main boss ( Stellar)
Eliza:  Assistant ( Eclipse )
Siya: Narrator

Introduction:

We have now all been transported into this room to discover how aliens plan to take over Earth. Naysha is the main boss named Stellar while Eliza is the assistant named Eclipse.

Script:
Naysha - So, I have called you here today to discuss our strategy to take over the world and if everything goes as planned, we will be able to attack tomorrow. I need you to tell all our fellow citizens about our plan.

Eliza - Ok, head boss. I am ready to help you take over the world and teach those pesky interfering scientists a lesson. UGH, those stupid brats.

Naysha - First, we will need to gather 30 UFO ś, so we can transport all our aliens to this foreign world named Earth. I hope some of them can lend us their UFO’s as we can't afford enough UFO´s for our whole gang. Next we have to take off and land on planet Earth safely without any problems. Did you hear me ? No problems.

Eliza -  I heard you boss, no problems. Though, we will have to buy loads and loads of human petrol which will cost 5,000 asteroids. I think we can borrow a loan from the galaxy bank as they are having a special offer where we only have to pay 5 % interest.

Naysha - You dummy , that's a lot of money. We should get a loan from the Star bank as there offer is only 1 % interest.

Eliza - Good thinking boss, I guess that's why you were made boss. I thought you had bribed the old boss as that's what everyone else thinks.

Naysha - Excuse me, out of my office.

Eliza walks out with a quick bye.

Naysha - Get back in here, I didn´t mean it. We still have to discuss the rest of our strategy. NOW !!! Hurry up

Unluckily Eclipse had already left the office and the boss was locked in and was left there for the whole night until the morning when the cleaners unlocked it.

The End

Aliens Flashback  - News report

  1. Aliens live on mars.
  2. Aliens were formed 3.5 billion years ago and made from bacteria.
  3. Aliens do exist and they actually eat humans.
  4. Alien life can also be called extraterrestrial life.
  5. How are aliens smarter than us.
  6. Aliens mostly have their brains inside of their arms, and each of their arms act like they have a brain of their own.
  7. Cephalopod relatives such as octopuses , cuttlefish and squids are the most alien like creatures on earth.
  8. Humans have searched for aliens for at least eighty years, that's not very long.

Aliens. Are they real, are they going to take over the world using their magical skills ? So many questions , that means there should be answers. So today we're going to be answering some very important questions about aliens. First of all, are aliens real ? According to NASA, aliens live on Mars and came about 3.5 billion years ago and are made from bacteria. No, it is not a lie as scientists have even found proof and have seen many UFOs circulating Earth. Aliens also have been known to eat humans. GHASTLY !!!  What will happen to our beautiful planet Earth? will this be the last time we ever see the light of day? In 2008, at a Tennessee College campus, there was a sighting of a UFO with over 200 witnesses that included three policemen who remained anonymous. Scientists predict that “aliens” are already living on earth but we just don't realize it. Here's our opinion, we think that aliens are real because of the proof different websites have given us. We also think that there might be a slight chance of aliens invading Earth. Now WATCH OUT !!! Stayed tuned for further information on the first alien invasion on our planet. Bye for now.

Speech



What would the world be like in 2050

Introduction:
Have you ever wondered how the world would be like in approximately thirty years from now? Just Imagine drones delivering us our favourite foods and robots delivering us refreshers while we relax at the beach. Think of self driving cars that would transport us to our destinations in a short amount of time. Well I have imagined the world in 2050, here are some of my thoughts. First of all how far do you think technology would go, what would the population be and most importantly what would would the world look like. As we may be all wondering what would our lives be like. Well here I am, and I am going to tell you what the world would be like in 2050.
Paragraph 1:
technology. From my point of view I think technology will advance quite far and before you know it could possibly take over the world. Do you think we should we be excited about the new gadgets in 2050 ? Well as kids we are all addicted when we receive something new but as time flies we get bored of it and imagine as if it was always there. But would be get sick and tired of self driving cars, drones, transparent phones,  virtual home decor, robot vacuum cleaners, an umbrella that forecasts the weather, abike that pedals by itself and so much more. But how much technology would be used, right now 3.2 billion people are using technology per year so imagine how much people would use technology in the future ahead.

Paragraph 2:
Secondly what would the population be. Researchers and scientists predict that the population would be 9.7 billion by 2050. Since there is 7.6 billion now it would increase by 2.1 billion people so roughly it would increase by 1 billion per year. As the population rises think of all the pollution, waste and how we treat nature and animals. Right now there are at least 41,415 animal species that are close to extinction, so they are probably going to be extinct by 2050 as the population increases.

Paragraph 3:
Thirdly what do you think the world would look like. Most people predict that the world would be full of cramped cities and gadgets. But in my opinion I think that the earth would look like a desert from outer space space since there has been a big change in the climate, and there would also be meteors and possibly space cars. But if i would give my opinion from the distance where we are, i think that there would be mind blowing islands, cities and streets. And it would all just feel like we were in a screen.

Conclusion:
Overall I think that the world in 2050 would look totally different than what it is now. But who knows what it would actually be like?  We all have big imaginations and think of everything positive in the future and some of it could possibly become reality. But 30 years ago kids would have possibly imagined the same thing. Whatever the world turns out to be only you can make a change and we can still change our loved planet if we just try.

Speech Moment back in time


Speeches- Moment back in time

WALT: describe a moment back in time for speeches

Everyone was applauding everyone except me. My whole world had just turned upside down. It felt as if I was trapped in an unfortunate nightmare. I tried everything trying not to make eye contact with the teacher, hiding in a claustrophobic corner, hiding my cue cards in my sweaty palms, praying that the teacher wouldn't choose me and anything else to avoid being chosen, as the teacher knew that I wasn’t the best at speaking in front a large group of people, as the clapping all came to an end. All my attempts had failed. Next up is… Naysha. I knew that my speech was going to be the fastest speech ever presented, and I knew that I would get a whole heap of feedback.

BBI Experience Day


Blockhouse Bay Experience Day

Finally the day had arrived, I had been waiting for a month to go to BBI. The experience there was amazing. Here are some of my highlights. My highlights of BBI were the extraordinary things we got to do such as making different pieces of art, and learning an instrument. The teachers there at BBI also seemed quite nice to me. I loved the way that Block House Bay intermediate has lots of different types of groups such as food tech, science, art, music, technology and so much more. The space in the classrooms and outside is prodigious. The one thing that i’m looking forward in intermediate is the extra curricular.The experience at BBI was good and I think everyone enjoyed it, and i’m looking forward to leaving year six and heading of to intermediate to start a new journey.
