We had a fantastic time at hockey. We learnt lots of new skills like dribbling, passing, stealing the ball of others. We also learnt how to hold the stick correctly and how to be safe with the hockey stick.

Creative Writing

We used these two pictures as inspiration for our writing. Come and read the great stories we wrote.

One day a long time ago my baot got eaten by a shark. I jumped off and I was scared. 
By Baylen

Once upon a time a shark was chasing me when I was on my jet ski. I was chasing him too because we were playing hide and seek because we were friends.

Spelling week 4



Last Thursday we went into the sandpit and had fun building sandcastles. We then wrote stories about what we did. Here are some pictures and stories.
My sandcastle had a pattern on top and it looked cool and when we busted it it was funny. 
By Baylen

When we went to the sandpit we made a sandcastle and D-Jay helped me do it and we used grass and bark and we used leaves.

Space invader art

Our focus this term for art is collage. We are starting this off by looking at mosaics. Mrs Larsen showed me some art done by a street artist Space Invader. He makes art work using squares (pixels) and places them in different places all around the word. He bases his designs on the game space invader. Below is a youtube clip that gave us inspiration for our space invaders. Enjoy!

Dinosaur Measuring

As part of maths this term we are learning about measurement. Miss Nation gave us a dinosaur footprint and we had to find things in the class and outside that were the same size. It wasn't very easy to find things - check out what we found. Also don't we all look good in our school uniforms!

Boo Boo stories

We have been working very hard on our writing this term. We have been working on making our stories more interesting. For motivation we talked about our boo boo's and then wrote stories about them  and made pictures on tux paint- enjoy!

I got burnt at my dad house when we were doing fireworks  and it hurt. I said ow! Ow!  Ow! My brother got burnt on his bottom. My dad put me behind his back so I couldn’t  get burnt again.

When I was on my scooter I stubbed my toe and it hurt my toe. I went to the office and I had to get a plaster.

When I was at home I played on the jungle gym and I fell on the ground and after that I went to mum and mum fixed my sore.
