Family movie night

In the holidays me and my family went to my aunty's house for a family movie night. The movie that we watched was called thunderstruck. I realy liked the movie because  it was about a boy who stole a famouse baskateball players talent. In the midlle of the movie we had twisties and pop corn. It was fun. My favuorite part was when we ate the food. The food was so nice there was pig,potatoe salad, sasauge, padie and  pizza. I was about to fall asleep when the last movie was on. I enjoyed the movie night.

The seven kites.

In a valley where the trees grew tall and where the grass grew rough, there lived 7 sisters. Every harvest the 7 sisters made kites.The first oldest sister’s was green she made it out of the harakeke bush. The second sister’s kite was orange she made it out of the ruapo bush. The 3rd sister’s kite was pink made out of the manuka tree. The 4th sister’s kite was red made from the puriri tree. The 5th sister made a blue kite and she made it out of the colour of the river. The 6th sister made a white kite out of the toetoe bush. The littlest made a colorful kite. Her name was Matariki.

Then the 7 sisters took their kite to the top of the hill, but when they got there, there was no wind. So they tied their kites to the puriri tree. After they tied it up they went to sleep. While they were sleeping the wind blew the kites off the tree. Then Matariki woke and said “where are our kites?” Her sisters woke up from the sound of her crying. The sisters looked everywhere for their kite. They said “Where are our kites?”

Up in the sky the the kites were dancing in the sky. The seven sisters were pleased to see their kites shine brighter than the stars. Each morning Matariki rose to signal every new year.

Isaac Newton

I have been learning about the life of Isaac Newton. I was allowed to share what I learnt anyway that I wanted. My teacher suggested that I try Sketchnoting. I am very proud of what I have shared all about Isaac Newton.

Zoo trip

My class went on a fun trip to the zoo. I saw a Meerkat for the first time and it looked so so cute I never knew the Meerkat would be so small.

The animal I saw was the Cheater the Cheater was running around and the other Cheater was just lying down. The next animal I saw was a Rhino it was on a hill it had a big horn his nose. After that i went to africa to see the Elephants. My favourite animal was the Elephant because it was so big and it had a long trunk . After that my class went to Te Wao Nui. We were learning about kiwis and birds. When we were learning about the birds the lady brought us there gave us a piece of paper their was all types of birds we had to look for all of the birds. The coolest part was when I saw that there was food hammered to a branch next to the birds home. Then my class went to the Bug Lab it was so cool.My favorite part was when I had 2 sticks and there was a question I only had 5 wrong and 3 right it was hard questions. There was a big Cockroach that was a slide, it was only a short slide.After that Jayla found me, then she took me to a bee hive. It was fun because I had to rup as hard as I could to make the bee glow. Once it glowed Jayla screamed and ran away.

During our day I learnt that kiwis have there nose on tip of their beak.

It was lots of fun because it was my first time at the zoo.

My catapult

Yesterday I shot my teacher and he started crying.To learn about energy my class made catapults. We used popsicle sticks and sellotape. We used pom poms for our bullets. It was a big war, friends shooting friends, students shooting teachers and even some of the kids were under the table shooting at other kids. This helped us learn about gravity, kinetic energy and potential energy. Gravity is when something falls. Potential energy is stored energy and kinetic energy is moving energy. To make a catapult you need to stack 4 popsicle sticks on top of each other then sellotape the two ends together. Next get 2 popsicle sticks lay them on top of each other and sellotape one end to make a shape like scissors. Put the layer of 4 in between the middle of the 2 scissors. I felt like I was in a real war. It was fantastic. I learnt so much about energy.
