The Door

In Room 4 we have been working on setting the scene in writing.  I budded up with Tristan and we started to writing. 

I hope you ENJOY  

It was about midday on a windy autumn. Tristan and I were going for a hike up in the mountains. “Tristan do you hear that rumbling sound?” I said.  “It’s a landslide,” said Tristan “watch out!” When the rocks stopped falling. I noticed a door in the side of the mountain. I said “Tristan come over here I have found a mysterious and very old door.” We looked carefully and we spotted a face carved into the door.  It was very detailed with Maori patterns all over it. “Hey “Karel” said Tristan “I wonder how we open the door?” “Maybe we slide the doors to open them,” I said. Tristan and I tried to slide the door open but it was really hard to move. We tried again, this time using all our power and it worked. A blinding light shone in our eyes and we couldn’t see what was happening behind it.

In He Puna Kawenga we have been learning how to add money. We had to make a poster about money. We had to go shopping at New World and our limit was $20. At the warehouse we had to spend $30 on a costume and lollies and a bag or a container. 
It was frustrating to work out.

keep NZ clean

Today we went cleaning around the Fitzherbert Ave block and we found a lot of cigarette butts, paper, and heaps of other stuff. My favourite thing about this  activity was that we were tiding up the community.  It is important because all our drains are getting blocked and rubbish is getting into our rivers and oceans, hurting sea creatures.  So NZ, please stand up and stop this!

exploration poster

In He Puna Kawenga we are making posters about encouraging others to sail the Pacific Ocean. The hard part was making the poster look good. My favorite part was making the clouds. It was a challenge to make the adjustments to make work and color. The back ground was the hardest part to color in because it had heaps of blank spaces. If I didn't have a group it will be hard to do.

In the Star Dome

Wow look at that bright, red light. I was so amazed with what I saw there. I never seen anything like that my mind was blown over the limit. Awhina showed us all of the bright stars in the star dome. We learnt lots of things in the star dome. One thing that was spooky was it was VERY VERY pitch black  after Awhina turned of the lights for us to see all the amazing stars.  I learnt about the path of the stars of Aotearoa.

Growth VS Fixed

We have been learning about what growth mindset is in class. A growth mindset means you don't give up on things. A fixed mindset is when you give up on things and don't try. I made a poster of 5 things to tell myself when I'm stuck.

We went to the Sargent gallery to see some beyond the frame art. then we made our noun beyond the door writing. here is mine....

My door is in a spooky sea of smelly unicorn. The door’s  name is Angry Mason. If you come into my door you would die and if you give me some candy you will stay alive. If you go down to my basement the color is green you will see a popcorn maker and a dirty door from a dump site that is about 109 years old.

4 x 4 Off Road in Turakina

At Turakina I watched all of the cars drive around the area of the course. They are very old machines.                                                                                                   

Hamish was the first one to do a back flip.

A Moment in Time

I saw a group of bushes on a huge hill. There were some logs by the edge of sea. I heard people shooting deer.
I heard huge splashes from the sea.

I felt happy because I had a swim in the cold salty water.

An Orange

An orange is bumpy like concrete. A orange smells like  a mint. A orange is fat and round.
An orange is sour and juicy. An orange is bright like the sun. An orange is squishy like a sponge. An orange is bumpy like concrete. An orange smells  like  a mint.
Cross country
At school it was cross country I started the race when the clapper went. 'Ready...set...go! On the path I saw little sticks. I heard birds singing in front of me. I felt happy because i came 5th place.  I was running like flash.  

The Duffy theater

After morning tea Room 3 went to the Duffy theater. There were 2 super heroes. One was blue and one was red. They sang songs. There were 3 people in the show. My favorite part was the cloud because of the costume that she wore.  There was a koala hanging over the huge map of the world. The Koala was fluffy.

The Forest

Vines looked like skinny snakes sliding around the fat tree trunk and branches.

The lichen  looked like old man’s  beard  fuzzy. The log had white fungy which looked like fluffy fur...


Shrek's green skin looked like a green leaf from an enormous tree. Shreks huge hands looked like they had slugs hanging off the end of them. Shrek’s scary eyes looked  like vampire’s blood. His happy smile is as wide as a clown’s mouth. He has spoon shaped ears sticking out of the sides of his head.

At the Beach

The waves were crashing like a dinosaur dancing in the waves.
My castle looked like a chocolate to eat with my dessert.  
My castle was the seven sisters in the sky.
The mountain looked like a tasty ice cream cone tipped over by a giant.
A dog was running as fast as a motorbike through the children making amazing sculptures on the black sand.
