Real or Fake?

Bird of the year

   This photo I have chosen because it shows the Hoiho, which is                                    the bird of the year in NZ.   

     The Hoiho has yellow eyes. And they live in the south island.
     Penguins flap their flippers to move through the water. 
          They have pink beaks and they eat fish which is their                                                    favourite food.
     They only live in New Zealand and there are not many of them.

Planting Our Vegetable Garden-Frances

Last week we went to the garden to plant vegetables. The dirt was dry so we had to flip the dirt over with the shovel and Mrs Agnew had the big fork. We dug holes for the seedlings and me and Jamie got our vegetables ready. Ours were tomatoes. So we picked up our plant gently because if we don't do it gently then the dirt will fall off. We made them cosy by pushing the soil firmly around them.

 Then we saw lots of earthworms and Jamie saw a yellow worm. Mrs Agnew saw a spider with an egg sac at its back. 

We need to plant vegetables so that we can be healthy, eat fresh food and gardening keeps us fit. If we grow our own vegetables then we can save money because you don't have to buy them at the supermarket. So all students need to bring veggies to SCHOOL now that we are a Nude Food School.  I like eating salad so much.

Cybersmart Term 4

Last week we started our final topic in Cybersmart... we were learning how to be cybersmart in a learn,create, share world. We made an infographic about our initial ideas. Check out the rest of the classes blogs to see what they thought!

Making tukutuku patterns

                                              Tukutuku patterns

Last week my classmates and I were making takutuku patterns. First I used my plain white piece of cardboard which is called a loom. It had 10 thin lines on it which I had to cut along very carefully.  I took my black and red paper strips and weaved it through the white paper until I got a clear and vibrant pattern.
I had to stick down the ends so I didn't lose them. Then I gave my mat a 'haircut.'
Ms.Agnew took a photo and here is my photo.

Smart Relationship Qualities

Today Ms.Collins taught us Smart Relationship qualities like 
Interesting, joyful, beautiful, smart and positive.
I was with Desiree and we had to decide how we could win the competition of building the tallest tower.
We started by planning for ten minutes how we could use 12 pieces of spaghetti sticks and 8 marshmallows.
After morning tea we had to actually build the tower. Ours was 17cm and it stood without falling for 3 seconds. 
After that Ms.Collins took pictures and we could eat the  marshmallow tower. It was a good activity to do to show how strong our friendship is.
