Athletics

On Tuesday the whole of Puriri and Kauri team walked to Lovelock track for athletics. It took 20 minutes to get there.

My favourite activity was the sprints because it was fun and I came 3rd in the 200m sprint. Sapheta stopped half way and then ran of the track for some reason. But I'm glad he did otherwise he would've beaten me and I would've come 4th.

Roll a Story

In Room 25 we have been learning how to write narratives and what to include a narrative.
Miss Mills made up characters, settings and problems. We had to roll a die and what ever we rolled there would be a character, setting or a problems we would have to use for or story. This is what I got.

Character: Grumpy bear
Setting: At a magical castle
Problem: Found an unlucky penny

This is my story.

On a dark wet day at Grizzly castle Grumpy bear was in a deep sleep when he heard the most deafening sound in the world. Thunder.
All of a sudden he waved his feet around trying to kick his duvet of his warm fury body once he'ed managed to get the duvet off he ran outside to see what the noise was.
It was thunder and rain, he'ed forgotten his umbrella so he quickly huddled under Bearina's umbrella.

He watched the king and one of his knights talk about a lucky penny. The penny did the opposite of what the bear holding the penny wished for. Then one of the villagers shouted out "Say something bad and see what happens." so then he said "I wish, I was the poorest king in the universe, guess what happend, his gold necklace disappeared and and his cloths turned brown...

I will add a picture later.

Quick Maths

This week is Maths week. Yesterday we learned about BODMAS. It taught us about the order that we use to solve problems with more than 1 operation (+,  -,  x and ÷).
Once we learned about BODMAS we did a challenge in groups. I was with Frankie and Marley, we got to choose our groups. I liked my group.
So in the challenge we got a booklet each with maths equations in it. We had to use the BODMAS technique to figure them out and then we had a runner (Marley) who brought the answers to Miss Mills. and guess what the best part was? We won!!!

Film festival

Yesterday we went to the 2018 film festival for schools. It was at the civic. It showed 12 short films. My dad came to help, me and him both really liked it. I had had 2 favorites. one was about a young tram and its mum. The mum tought the little tram how to pick people up. When they both got older the mum went out by its self one night and she got rusty and couldn't move and then the son went out and saved her. My other favorite one was like this. There was a little girl who knocked on everyone's door asking if the had seen her guinea pig. The last person she asked was an old lady and inside her house was a bird and the little girl ran in and let bird free and the bird flew out of the window. then the lady left to try and find her bird. So the little girl made poster to ask people if they new where the old lady and the bird were. the little girl asked a man but he didn't answer so she asked his dog and the dog showed so she found the lady and then they found the bird.

What Am I?

Because we were learning about vertebrates and invertebrates we also did a what am I. We could choose any animal then right some clues about the animal and then we found a picture of the animal, then we put a shape over the picture and inserted an animation so when you click the shape will disappear and you will be able to find out what the animal is. My one is quite easy so you should be able to get it. Here it is.

Vertebrates and Invertebrates

This term we have been learning a lot about vertebrates and invertebrates. A vertebrate is an animal with a backbone and an invertebrate is an animal without a backbone. 
We have also done a DLO (a Digital Learning Objective) about vertebrates and invertebrates. Here it is


I really enjoyed this activity because I got to learn what an invertebrate and vertebrate is.
