Water Immersion Activities Day 2

Stream Trip.
We went a walk to the stream that run along the back of our school. We found out that part of the stream is fresh water and the other part is salt water and mangroves.
We saw lots of interesting things including an eel, and a dead snapper.
We learnt that snapper come into the mangroves to lay their eggs. Maybe the tide went out too fast and the snapper got caught.

Here is the video of our eel that we saw.

Water Immersion Activities Day 1

We launched our new Inquiry topic with 4 days of water immersion activities. Our new topic is called 'Our World . . . Our Water.' We joined together with our buddy class Room3. Our first days activities we did some research around our school. We went searching for all the water sources in our school. We took a pencil and a tally chart and kept a record of our findings.
We found out that there were lots of water sources in our school.
We have 4 drinking fountains.
About 40 toilets in our school. That includes the urinals in the boys toilets and the teachers toilets.
About 40 sinks with taps, 2 dishwashers, 4 hose outlets, 3 sprinkler systems for our gardens, and 1 swimming pool.
That is quite a lot of water outlets in our school.
Here are some photos that Mrs M took for us.

Going to Australia

Hooray!  Hooray!  When I got out of bed this was the day were going to Australia.  I ran and woke my sister up.  After I woke my sister up I went and woke up my Dad and my Mum.  My sister was very excited because our cousins were coming toMy Mum packed our bags and then my Dad put our bags inside the car.  Once we got at the airport we waited because there was long que.  "Finaly!"   I shouted.  After we finished checking in we got on the plane.  I started to watch a movie.  A little while later I was fast asleep.  Once we got to Australia my mum woke me up.  When we got off the plane,I saw our cousins.  When all of us finished our greetings we went outside.  When we got outside it was felling very hot.  I thought it was 40 or higher.  It was as hot as the desert.  I was sweating hard.  A van  took us to the hotel.  It took a long time to get to the hotel.  I slept in the van.  My cousin woke me up when we got to the hotel.  When we hopped out of the van I was hot but when we got inside the hotel was nice and cold. Next we went in the room.  Our cousins were next door to us.  It was getting late we had dinner with our cousins.  We went to a food court.  The next Morning we were going to the Sydney Opera house.  But sadly it was closed.  We took pictures.  Instead we went to a Aquarium.  I felt very tired because we had to walk a long way.  "Finally! we've finished walking!" I yelled.  We went on a train.  It us back to the hotel.  I had a swim in the pool It was all the way on the top.  The next day we went on the plane.  We went home.  When we got to Auckland it was very late.  "Hoo" I yawned "Time to go home to bed"!   I said yawning.                                                                                                                                             


This is my Math problems using counters. It says 5+76=81, 2x4=8, 6+6=12 and 3+1=4.

Going to Graces party

''HAPPY BIRTHDAY '' yelled Madison, Emma, Alison, Charlotte, Catherine and I. "Hi!" screamed Grace. Lets go slide on the stairs with our sleeping bags. . We where full of beans, well more like screaming beans. ''Lunch time every one '' yelled Bronnie. We bowled up stairs to eat our lunch. "Can we go bowling now please?" "ok." "Time to bowl." "yay" We had heaps of turns at bowling. Crash went the pins. Finally we got to the end. It was time to go play on the game machines but before that I needed to get our tickets. After we played on the games we went back to Graces house. While we were at Graces house we played some more and watched a movie called "Baribe and the fashion fairies" Then we had dinner and watched the rest of the movie . Then we went to bed. We had a pillow fight and a farting contest. Then we fell asleep. Catherine's alarm went of it was like the middle of the night. Then we fell back asleep. When we woke up I was on top of Emma "Get off my face! Your like an elephant on my face." Then we woke up and had another pillow fight. We had breakfast and played Rapunsal then we got picked up and went.

nine grid

This is my nine grid. It is my favourite maths game when we do maths. Every time me and my friend have to play catch a kiwi or nine grid, me and KP always choose nine grid. We will spend lots of time playing nine grid. When we are supposed to change activities, we ask if we can keep on playing nine grid. This is how you play. You rule 9 boxes and have as many dice as you like. You roll the dice and add up the numbers and put them in any square you like. When you put all the numbers in each square you add them up side ways and then going down and diagonal. When you are finished, you cross out the numbers in the tens when you have done that you add them up diagonally and at the bottom you make the number what you got and cross out numbers that make 10 until you can't make any more 10s count it and write the answer down and that's all.

nine grid

This is my nine grid. My teacher taught me and my maths group how to play this. We are getting good at it. Now me and my friend are using four dice. The game is fun. Every maths we play it.
