Harold

On Tuesday morning as Room 24 walked among the school to go to Harold’s  truck, the sun was shining. When we got there we took off our shoes and lined them up under the bench seats to stop them from getting wet. 

First Room 24 walked up the stairs, went in the truck and lined up on two sides. When we sat down, Lyn got Harold, who was about to go to the park. Lyn showed us a video of Harold going to the park.  Next she asked us questions about Harold and his friends at the park. We talked about how to be a good friend. Lastly Room 24 left the truck and grabbed our shoes and lined up outside. It felt brilliant because we got to learn about exciting stuff like being a good friend and being a good friendly person.

My monster spyro

My monster has sharp claws, big wide teeth and big long legs. He is 97 years old and he is the strongest monster on earth. His name is Spyro and he is friendly to people. His favourite food is fish and chips and his favourite drink is juice. His favourite thing to do is scare people from the shop and he loves buying pets at the pet store. He sleeps until the afternoon and stays a wake until night and goes to the pools and goes bowling to get a strike. Sometimes he plays games like flappy bird, PAC man and guitar and goes home and watches movies at night. 

Then he went to  sleep at 4pm and wakes up at night but suddenly a boy came and tried to fight him but he couldn't so spyro didn't do anything and he never came back to the house so spyro watched a movie called boss baby. Then it was the morning and he watched another movie and another person came and tried to steal spyros PlayStation but lucky spyro woke up and spyro didn't do anything again and he went back to sleep. Then he woke up and his bed was gone then he saw a piece of a nip and he went to his kitchen and saw a person and the person was don't hurt me I will leave and never ever steal your bed and never came back and spyro said I don't care and he went to the shops to buy his favourite food delicious fish and chips he bought two packets he went home and ate all of the food and had a full stomach. So he watched movie and kept on watching the movie and he kept on watching.

What makes a kite fly?

 
We wrote this writing together as a class.
What makes a kite fly?

There are four forces that affect a kite when it is flying. They are gravity, lift, thrust, and drag.


Gravity is the force that keeps us on the ground. The heavier a kite is the harder it is to fly.

Lift is the force pushing the kite off the ground. Lift happens when air moves over the top of the kite at a faster speed than the air that is moving under the bottom of the kite.

The force that makes a kite move through the air is called thrust. Thrust happens with a kite when it is held in one place by its string, while the wind flows around the kite.

As air flows over the kite the wind gets held back a little by the roughness of the fabric. This friction is called drag.

Magical Matariki


What is Matariki?

Matariki is group of seven stars and it is the Maori new year. The stars disappear in late April then when they come back it is the beginning of the Maori new year. The seven sisters have  names. The eldest sister guides her sisters to their places up in the sky. The old stories tell us that when the stars shine brightly the year will be warm and good for growing crops. There will be plenty of seafood to gather. We celebrate Matariki in lots of different ways. We are telling stories from the past, learning about how the Maori people used the stars to find their way around. We can go fishing to catch kai moana. We fly kites and forgive people who have made us sad.
