I enjoyed Kiwi can because it was fun and I enjoy throwing balls into hoops.

To play tables conga you have to claim each number meaning you have to get the mixed up numbers into order using any times table you choose.

Pro's & Con's ( Living a life in a light house )

This week we have been learning how to identify the positive/Bad on buying a light house. As a group we discovered that some lighthouses can be in the middle of the ocean and some not so far out on the shore. Here for our con's we found out that light houses have plenty of stairs and on each block is a room. Did you know that when you are in a light house you travel from helicopter back to land and also get sent lots of food as the signal is bad. One of the bad things about light houses is that if your sick medical services wont be able to get to you in time as the signal is bad from out in the ocean. Other then that I think living in a light house is fun as you read all our pro's. Our Con's explain the bad things that might happen like big storms.

ASB Get wise Visit

This week Jayden from ASB Get wise visited our Class. We learnt how to spend money wisely and how to save our money for more things that we need rather then what we want. We started of by getting into teams from 1 to 5. The goal of the game is to not go over the budget. As he handed us fake money we started to plan what we are going to buy and what to not buy. I think the best thing that we decided as a group was to buy insurance just because we had 100 left over and because insurance payed of our hospital fees.

The next game we played was 1hand soccer. We splitted up into two groups and versed each other. In this game it shows how much encouragement and positivity we use throughout.

Poetry/Word Clines

Waking up to a sunshine horizon. 
Thick green emerald trees sway side to side. 
A fresh cold breeze hits and the birds sing happily outside my window. 
Creaking open my window I smell the earthy rocks and the beautiful white lilies smiling at me from afar. 
( Today … ) 
I wake up to the clouds covering the warm sunshine . All the birds migrate away. The wind howls with the rain getting pushed away. My window slams open. My lilies I usually wake up to is no longer standing up with a smile. You can smell the rain and hear the thunder strike.

This week we used a Poem called two day wonder by David hill as an example for juxtaposition. Its about a  boy who is sick and he describes the world to be still,slow and rainy. Then he used juxtaposition to create the complete opposite to his first paragraph. We then created our own summer/winter version of the poem itself.

Body system

This week for inquiry Ms Kirkpatrick's group learnt about body systems. We learnt about the nervous system and the digestive system. Our digestive system is mainly something to do with our stomach. We also learnt that the nervous system is in the brain. We then looked at a photo of a skeleton. The skeleton was labeled  and named. After we read out the names of the skeleton we went on with the game. This game you have to put each bone into the body. If you have it in the wrong place the skeletons eyes turn red and the bone you put in flips out. I found this game hard because when I would put in a bone it would be right but the sides have to be right to. So I got given some help from a friend and she helped me identify the bones from left to right.

Memorial theme

This week for inquiry we read a sophisticated story book about a book called "Memorial" . This book gives you hints by the colour, tone and texture of the images. For example as I read through the book and end up with a light tone image then it will most likely be a positive picture. The opposite to light is dark and so dark images represent reality through life. When were done with  our presentation we had to pick one of our slides that we wanted to use the most. I picked the definition and example of the meaning of the book itself.

Story book : Tane Mahuta & Hine

 This week for inquiry we created a story book about a Maori legend. This legend is about how the      first woman on earth came to be. What we did was retell the legend by using Story book.
