Student Led Conference

On Wednesday Te Ngahere had Student Led Conferences. If you don’t know what that means, well it means a parent meeting but the kids are telling their mums, dads and caregivers, what you have been learning and how you are getting on in the class. We had to make a google drawing to link our work for the meeting. My meeting was at 3.15pm my brothers was at 3.30pm. First Mrs Pou, one of my teachers, gave my mum my report to read while I was telling her about my learning. Driving home my mum was proud of me and how I’m getting on. Maybe your class should give it a go [it’s fun.]

Matariki Day at Paihia School

Last week on Thursday it was Matariki day. We had the choice to either go down to the beach and watch the stars at 6.00 am, Most kids did that but I didn’t. We had a man who came and did some games with us. Taunaha asked some kids to come do some planting, she said we could have buddies, my buddy was my best friend Alexis. The first plant we planted was a Manuka, I think the next plant we planted was Nikao. After we did a couple of hours of playing and planting we had a huge shared lunch. The whole school was so full, but my class was still eating, after lunch the inquiry groups that had to cook were cooking, and we got to eat them all [they were so yummy]. My group made pancakes, another group made waffles and a another group made donuts. Matariki day was so fun.

Last week on Tuesday Paihia School went down to Waitangi to do stuff with Matariki. It was so fun, my two favourite games were, the one with the the shell and you had to shake the shell with a bell in it, I also liked the game called matou maui. We got to plant trees and make manu aute made out of nikau . I loved that day it was much more better then doing work.

On Friday Te Ngahere made some nice icy cold ice cream, we made ice cream because the whole of Te Ngahere got 100% in our learning plans. We had to have buddies, my buddy was Sharnee we made vanilla ice cream everyone else did too. The next week after making ice cream we had to write a recount about making ice cream my learning intention was Metaphors. Is was a fun day much more better than doing reading, writing and so on.

Trouble in Space

Trouble in space Once upon a time there were three minions called Bob, Stuart and Kevin, which were off on a mission to get a sample of a star. Bob, Stuart and Kevin were lucky because they had their very own private spaceship, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 BLAST OFF. Bob, Stuart and Kevin’s line snapped, so the little minions were floating, floating out to space, while running out of air. But Bob, Stuart and Kevin were lucky because there was also people trying to get a sample of a star, and they saw the minions so they bounced into action. They grabbed the minions and gave them CPR. But these people were not ordinary people because, there was a spider and tiny tiny troll they were the hero’s. But in the end Bob, Stuart and Kevin all survived and got their star sample. The End When they got there, there was an amazing site the minions saw stars the milky way and colours, lots of colours. Then they found it ... they had found a perfect star. So Bob, Stuart and Kevin went out on a line to get a sample of the star. THEN DANGER FELL!!!!!!!
I created a fiction character my fiction caracter is a spider he is called D.J spider. I was learning how to write a descriptive piece of writing and put it into an animation. I did learn how to write a descriptive piece of writing and it was pretty good.
