Term 2 Week 4

Christian, the street unicycling world champion, taught us how to ride unicycles this week. We showed lots of perseverance and great teamwork.

Honey - no hands!

Friday was our Health Expo. We split into whanau groups and visited different activities to learn how to stay safe and healthy. Our favourites were bike safety, smoothie making, tasty marmite and lettuce sandwiches and Jump Jam.

Veishali and Charlie-Gurl enjoyed the sandwiches.

Term 2 Week 3

We wrote some cinquaine poems this week. They are five lines long. The poems make a diamond pattern - 2 syllables on the first and last line, 4 syllables on the second line, 6 syllables on the third line and 8 syllables on the fourth line. We all tried to use precise adjectives and verbs. Here are some of the poems we wrote:
Amazing, safe,
Helping, Swimming, Playing,
My Uncle Jais loves the X box.
by Charlie-gurl.

My Nan
Lovely, awesome
Fishing, cooking, helping
Going shopping with my nan: cool.

Term 2 Week 2

We wrote some powerful war poems this week. If you are at school check them out - they are in our publishing window. Che wrote his thoughts on a mini whiteboard during free choice:
I hate war. I wish it will go away. Guns sound like "boom, crash". Smoke drifts in the sky.
 The Duffy Theatre came to school on Wednesday and performed "Duffy and the Library Adventure" for us. 
Sienna learns that the library is free to join and full of amazing books.
Last week Jacob's mum asked us who's the tallest person in our class. We stood in a line from tallest to shortest to check and found out the tallest person is Troy.

Troy was the tallest,
The rest of the class!
