We love climbing!




































Last week we did some writing about climbing trees.  We are not usually allowed to climb the trees at school so we had a lot of fun!  Some people in our class hadn't climbed a tree before!  After climbing we did some writing about it using our senses.  Let us know what you think!  Here is Julia, Paapa and Rebecca reading theirs:

Warrior Lizard

Image result for colourful reptile holds up a twig

This photo, taken by Anup Deodhar/Barcroft Images was in the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards.  We have been writing descriptive sentences about this reptile.  Here are some:

Handsome lizard samurai, in shimmering, rainbow armour,
He was standing like he ruled the kingdom
Scales like armour,
Twig for a sword.

Can you think of any other ideas?

Water, water, water!

Today we did an experiment on water with Mrs Blackwell.

We got our drink bottles and tipped the water out on the ground.  Then we drew with chalk around the water.  We came back later and looked at the water but it was all gone!

The water cycle:
The water in the ocean evaporates into the clouds, the clouds move, the water is to heavy for the clouds so the water drops onto the ground and soaks into under-ground rivers. Or it could land in a river.Then the river [or under ground river] will take it back to the ocean.

Out of Africa!




Last Thursday we went to a concert at Hillcrest High School.  It was very cool.  We were really proud of the awesome job they did.

Some of our highlights were:
- The lights turning off (Katie)
- The power dance was amazing (Samuel)
- The crocodile dancing because we got to be in the show! Check out the photo! (Te Aranga)
- We really liked their costumes because they were colourful and they had real detail (Parth)
- The haka was good and we were impressed with how loud they were! (Devlin)

Great concert Hillcrest!
