Swimming Lessons

Team 4 had swimming lessons at Glen Innes Pools. Team 4 was so excited to swim at the pools. Every 3 weeks we have to bring our togs and towels to school.

Team 4 has to walk all the way to the Glen Innes Pools. While we were there we had to listen to the teacher about how to be safe in the water. I only swam for 3 days. Room 8 had to go for our showers first before we get on the water. It was really warm in the water.

In that 3 days I learned how to be safe under water and how to get on the water safely. We had to swim forward and backwards which was really fun. My row had to float on our backs and screamed out HELP!! It was really funny. I really liked swimming with the instructor they were very kind and helpful.

It was really fun swimming with Kat, Jass and Jed they were really fun and kind. I would like to learn more things about swimming. It was really fun and difficult for me.

Lost in the island

Bedarra Island - Wikipedia
On a cold winter day there were 3 people stranded in the middle of the island. They had no food and no water and they were very cold and scared. They had nowhere to stay but in the cold island they had nowhere to go and nowhere to find their way out of the freezing island. Their names were Sam, Kelly and Lilly. They were very hungry and thirsty. They were very terrified. They decided to build a little house for them to stay in and to keep them safe from the cold. And when they were finish they decided to make some beds with some leafs and with some brunches it was very uncomfortable for them to sleep in.      

The next day Sam, Kelly and Lilly started to wake up. They could hear the bird chirping and the light soft wind wandering around when they opened their eyes widely they could see the sun shining up the sky. They were really happy to see the sun brightening above there heads so they got up and started to look for some food. Lilly went wandering for some food then she could see some Mangoes hanging on a little branch she was really happy so she started to climb the tree and grabbed the Mongoose and then she climbed back down and ran back to their little house and then waited for the others to go back then suddenly Sam founded some Bananas and Kelly found some Oranges so then they both ran to the little house. The three of them were sitting down and eating their fruits while they were eating their fruit they would talk about how to get out of the island they would think and think then suddenly Sam had an idea his idea was to make a boat and they all agreed so they all went to look for some things for the boat they got big branches, small branches and some big leafs when they got everything they needed they started to make their boat it took them weeks and days.

The next day they were finished they were very glad that they were finished they got in the boat and sailed far away from the island they were very happy to see the boat moving away from the island they would sing and laugh together in their little boat while they were sailing they could see fish everywhere they are very pleased so they got there stick that was shaped while they got their fish they could see cars wandering around and people talking and laughing they were very shocked to see other people they reached to the end of the sea they got out of there boat and looking around and around.

Now That's Thinking

Screen Shot 2017-04-18 at 11.25.03 AM.pngThis term our whole school is learning about Technology. For our topic this term is called Now That's Thinking it means that we have to use our brains for learning and other things. I am so excited to do fun things in class and learning about how Maori people use their Technology. I am so excited to make things with the class and exploring things and learning what Technology is and learning how Maori people live with their Technology.

I think we are learning how to making things that Maori people use like Wakas and lots of things. But I am excited to create those kind of things in class. Our whole school is learning about Technology and many things but our team is the only one that is learning about how Maori Technology has changed over time. Technology is something that people has made for us so that it can make our lives easier our to solve problems.

I would like to make our own Technology and exploring how Technology is made out of. I would also like to make kites and many things.
