Ashurst trip

Yesterday my class drove to a playground in Palmerston North. It was HUGE. There were lots of things to play on but my favourite was a mini tramp dug into the floor. There were three of them and nearly the whole class jumped from one to the next one. It was very fun. There were two hamster wheels, a swing and lots more. There was also a spider swing and two houses. After that we left to come back to school. We came back at 4:00 pm. Then we all went home.

Magic Play Dough

In Room 1 and 2 we have been playing with playdough and wrote a poem about it. Here is mine.

Today I found some playdough and it said squeeze,
But be gentle please.

On the packet it said if it changed colour you may have a wish,
But I thought it was rubbish.

But then when I squeezed it changed colour,
So I called my mother.

When she came in I thought of a wish just for me,
My mum went back to kitchen surprisingly.

That is what i wished for her to go back,

But I should've wished to get some shoes that are black.



He Puna Hangahanga were told a story by out teacher. There were two problems 1. Your friend has cut his leg by a rock 2. Bugs are biting your leg and driving you crazy. There were three questions to these as well 1. What can you do to solve both problems? 2. Can you do anything to help? 3. Is there anything that can help? We answered the questions in a Popplet. Here is mine.

Acrostic Poem

Have you ever been to my house before in my life?

On the top of my house there are lots of birds that stay on the roof.

My house is very big to live in by myself because there are a lot of bedrooms.

Prove It workshop 24

L.I Can I support my ideas with detail? 

On a coldish Monday morning last week at 9 o'clock we were sent to Green Pastures camp for the night. There were a lot of activities that were fun but my favourite was the mud run. We started down a step hill with bumps in it. We had to use a rope to get down and that rope showed us the way. Then there was a mini pool of watery mud. I just jumped into it but it didn't hurt and it was very thin so it wasn't a challenge. After that it was a normal pool of mud it wasn't too high and it wasn't to low like the last one but the very last obstacle was very hard. The mud was thick and the colour was almost a pitch black. It took the raw power of two men to get me out of there.

First we got a rock and a piece of paper.Then we outlined our rock.After that we designed the outline.Next we put a white base coat on our rock.Then we put our colours on the rock and finally we hide the rocks around the school.  We are going to ask a junior class to find the rocks  and bring them to their teacher and they will be our buddy for the year.  If some of the rocks aren't found the rest of the school can find them and come to room 1 and 2 to get house points.

Wednesday, 9 November 2016

Last week I was all ready for my race when a 25 tonne tank barged into the hall and started shooting everything that moves. It’s bullets crushed all the co2 cars and the hall stage. When it was done destroying the hall it got out of there, all of the buildings collapsed and so so did Room 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and the staff room. The classes left were Room 9,10, 11 and 12 and room 14. BAM! All of a sudden they shot a bullet right next to Room 9 then it shot right through every class that was not destroyed. Everyone ran as fast as they can to the exit and the tank drove out safe and unharmed like nothing happened. A year later the school reopened with a huge feast in the hall with pizza, cookies and candy like snickers, kit kats and fruit bursts. Yum!

In my class we are going to have a co2 car race. Here is me advertisement I made for it.

YAY my class is going to the gym. This is the fourth time we are going to the gym. I have been to all of them. It takes awhile to get there but my feet don't hurt, unlike other trips. My favourite thing is the huge trampoline and the foam pit because the huge trampoline can make you jump a few feet in height and the foam pit because the foam is soft but it takes awhile to get out.Image result for boys and girls gym club wanganui
