Term 4 Week 6


Last Week the whole school had a whole school assembly.It was about fantastic Fridays that the year 3,4,5's and 6 were doing the last five weeks. It was the last week for the fantastic Fridays so we did a showcase on all the groups I was in the Traditional sports we just did a slide show to show everyone I thought it was fun but the cricket in when we were playing found hard to do.It was hard cause I never play cricket before.

First we went to the classrooms that we had our fantastic Fridays teachers My group had to meet in room 21 and meet our teachers there then we lined up and went to assembly when we got there we found our spot and watched everyone come in and sit down then we started the assembly There were lots of groups and I liked cool Science cause the stuff that they did.

next we watched everyone,s I was kind of bored just siting down there but it was over and we went back to class and we talked about what we were doing and what we liked I thought it was cool.

I think we should do it again cause it is a lot of fun!!!!!!!

Term 4 Week 5


Last week we were doing our art. We were doing our jigsaw art there were to one was the rugby world cup and the other that only some people know which is a colourful elephant and I finished mine and other people that did not finish it would be up and it would look weird so you don't want to do that do you.

First we had to make a skecth and then we did the real thing I was doing good on mine but I only had one left and I finished it but when I finished it, We only had 20 minutes left of art so I was Lucky After you had finished you get to do SDL learning which Is a good thing so when I did that I went on with it.

We were doing this for our inqiury showcase in the school we saw a load of cool things there, I think Our one is the best one out of  them all cause it is cool pictures the teachers choose.

I think we did the best art ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nathan and the three pigs

WE had to write a Fractured fairy tale and I choose Nathan and his three friends like the wolf and the three pigs I found it easy to do this cause it was your own and you dont have to copy of something

Narrative Framework

We were doing a fairy tale but it is different characters
and new places and you make it up.

Term 4 Week 4

Last Week Room 28/29 went and had a look at the inquiry showcase  in the Auditorium. That is when every class in the school shows something to do with inquiry we are still doing our but it is not long till it goes up.

First We had to line up and we walked over to the Auditorium when we got there the whole class walked around looking at the cool things classes put up and I found something cool it was this thing were on person is on one side and the other on the other side and it is two plastic cup and one long piece of string one cup is tied to the string and the other cup is tied to the other side and it is like a phone but one person talks threw one and the other person puts it near there ear and hears them talking.

Next we found these things were you can put your head threw and it was a school person a girl and  a boy it was not real but it must be  a long time to make it cause classes  are not that big.

  I found it cool looking at the stuff that you can do and see at the inquiry showcase you should have a look at the awesome things that the classes like me and cause it is AWESOME!!!!!!

Term 4 Week 2

Last week we did athletics we did  it in ages. Not last week but the week before the year 4 5 6,s did practise each day but not together I was good at running and long jump and good at high jump when we did the real  one it was pretty easy to do but some other people found it hard.

          First we all came to the Field when we  had finished or morning tea time and we went in our ages and sat in our line then waited for everyone to come and sit down when everyone came then we started going to our rotations my age started of at sprints which I am kind of good at I came 3rd place or 2nd place and made it into the Finals of running I was fast if I raced the girls in my age I would win I am not sure if I made it into the athletics team for running but in soft ball throws I was bad at throwing the ball far but I got a place for it which is good some people threw far some threw short but I fun. Thomas on his first turn he threw it so far he was standing on the cone the whole  time we did it.

 Next we went to high jump went on the side that we were good at doing high jump I did pretty good on my high jump on my side I came third and almost came second but it was too high Then we did long jump and on the first round I came 1st and on the second round I came 2nd but on the first round people jumped far  but stepped on the brown and not on the white so that did not count if you were on a ruler you would be into the finals  and I made it to the finals but I have not done that yet but soon I will vs the 9 year old boys or girls and the other people that came to the finals are Dee in my class and Riley S in room 13 and Interz in room 14 I am looking forward  to that .

I had so much fun doing athletics on Friday it would be good if we did it again some time.

Kensukes Kingdom

My reflection
I found this hard to do and It is hard to do cause when you guess it. it is hard to understand the words and what they mean
My next step is to think more harder to what the word is saying and look for key words in the sentence.

My Poster

                                                                 My Reflection:
                                                                I was learning to create a well-designed poster.
 I meet the criteria by making my own one but  it took a while to understand                                                                                                                                                                

Tree Planting

Today Room 28/29 went down just outside the back of the field we did tree planting.On the way down we saw lots of puddles Blake splashed in some puddles on the ways there and they were big puddles and they made big splash's.

First we leraned how to make the right size hole Then we put something called a feriliser pellets which we put in first be for the plant so it can grow faster so I planted about 8 or 7 but it was fun anyway.

Next we planted until we had to pack up but I wanted to do more so then we did our last plant then we put our spade away and washed our hands because they will be muddy and dirty so after we lined up and went back to class.

I was tierd and it was fun!!

Finding and Summarising Information

My Reflection

I have been learning to find and summarise information from a text.  We have been learning about the brain.  I found some facts form the internet.  I found this easy because I had some ideas already.  My next step is to summarise information in my own words because I just copy and pasted some of it.

My Speech Brainstorm

My Reflection

I have been learning to write a speech.  This is a brainstorm that I did on Popplet.  I found it easy at first but then it got a little hard to find more ideas that I needed to put in.  My next step is to find more information from the Internet.

One scary dark night I went camping with my dad and we went to the scariest place.  We set up the tent and went to bed and at the middle I suddenly saw a pig with a gun and a chainsaw.  He came out of a cave with a BLAST.  He went blo blo blo and I ran into the tent.  He went roared and he went roar roar roar and he crashed down our tent.  Dad woke up and said "RUN! Run for your lives!"
We ran and ran until we found the three pigs house made of bricks  and hid in there!

Place Value

I was learning to read numbers up to 1000 and to say which is bigger or smaller.
The thing that helped me most was:
- remembering to look at the left to see if the digits are bigger
- using streets and houses to break up bigger numbers
- seeing patterns in the numbers that don’t change when they get bigger
- practising on Mathletics

My next step is to:To Do high numbers
