Today room 17 and I went to swim for life safety program in the school pool. 

Tracey the swim for life teacher taught us how to do the line, huddle and chain it was fun and challenging because every time one person in our group touched the ground or let go of the group everyone in it had to do five push ups.

Then we fell back into the pool did a mushroom float then did the survival backstroke while there was a whirlpool. Doing swim for life is fun and safe for when your near water.

Rainbows End

Friday 27th November 2015

Yesterday some other students and I went to Rainbows End with Ma Te Hira for a thank you from her.

When we got there Ma Te Hira went and payed for our wristbands. After we all got our wristbands we split into three groups of four in my groups. In my group I had Keishana, Liona and Lirsah-Joe. We mainly went on the Invader and the Roller coaster because they were the super cool rides to us. We also went on the power surge which almost made me throw up because you twist and turn everywhere. After that we went on the amazing gold rush and log flume, the gold rush made me really excited because you go into an abandoned mine with lots of spooky skeletons and the track turns unexpectedly. With the log flume you go into a cave with lots of elves which look creepy but sing "Merry Christmas",  But overall I really liked the Invader we were all so happy and thankful to Ma Te Hira for taking us to Rainbows End
This is the Invader

My Digital Postcard

Problem Solving

24th Tuesday November 2015

Ducks legs 2 x 8 = 16
Pigs legs 4 x 3 = 12
12 + 16 = 28
8 ducks + 3 pigs = 11 animals

One pig has four legs times it by three pigs equals twelve legs
One duck has two legs times it by eight ducks equals sixteen legs
Twelve pig legs plus sixteen duck legs equals twenty eight animal legs
Three pigs plus eight ducks equals eleven animals

The Mysterious Glow-Worms

Wednesday 26th August 2015
WALT: exchange boring words for exciting words.

Flowing water going into the gloomy cave. Just looking at the ceiling and all you could see is  pitch black but lighting the path, glow-worms. Shining like millions of diamonds and wriggle like their in a sleeping bag and web like tassels hanging.

WALT: use descriptive language to make our writing more interesting

Today for writing we used onomatopoeia to describe the fireworks also using adjectives and verbs.
We watched a video of fireworks and listened closely to the sounds of the fireworks and wrote down words to describe the fireworks in the video then we made a word cloud of the words.

This is my word cloud.
