Immersion assembly

From Immersion Assembly Term 4 2011

Outta this world was the topic for the term it was time we had something to do about space.

We strolled down the corridor as we entered the hall it was fantastic as we walked by the
teachers with costumes. The whole school just stood there and starred but when came to cheering they were like a flock of animals. Team ones item finished and it was time for the next item team two.

Team two’s item was a rap about mars and all the other planets. They were dancing like robots there were space helmets and wigs and other costumes.
Mr Burt told us stories about Maui and some constellations in the stars. He told us about Manaiakilani how Maui caught the biggest fish and about Kupe.

Team fours item was twinkle twinkle little star with the wiggles Mr Marks and Mr Sommerville were dressed up as girls with little pom poms and tutus we were laughing loudly. As they almost stumbled to the floor as they ran and jumped it was like a train wreck they were all over the place.

I am really looking forward to the term ahead of us.

Shuttle launch

Waiting anxiously I was strapped to my chair the only question on my mind was that was I going to make it through this. The shuttle was going to launch in ten seconds.

Bright, intense flames were shooting out like guns. Booster ignition the commander said, the rocket boosters shook and shudder as we waited for the countdown in fear what was going to happen next?. I was very shaky before the launch.

Nervously the rocket lifted off, our lives were on the line . We left a trail of smoke and fire it was a dangerous adventure our stomachs were shuddering. We were just minutes away from reaching our destination.

The rocket was reaching the blue sky when we were there we went higher and higher until we reached outta space.
