On Monday we started making a google drawing about our learning in Te Ngahere. We had to show what we were learning in writing, reading, maths, inquiry and art. We stated what we were learning in that subject and had to link some pieces of work related to that subject. After that was finished on Thursday we had to present it in front of our parents. For me it was pretty nerve racking but I got through it. Next time I want to be more confident.

Visiting The Treaty of Waitangi

On Tuesday last week the whole of Paihia School visited the Treaty of Waitangi. We played many many games that the Maoris used to do in the olden days. One game involved listening to your surroundings. The Maoris had to use this technique for hunting and defending. When there were animals or enemies they would hide and listen for any crackling in the trees or on the ground. This game was my favorite game that we played. Next year if we go I want to play this game again.

A few weeks ago Te Ngahere and Te Maunga drew Fidget spinners. We drew the fidget spinner on an A3 paper and had to fill the whole paper as much as we could. We were learning to use space, crayon and dye. We used different shapes to make different fidget spinners. My fidget spinner was just a normal three sided one. That week was really fun and I wish it could happen again with the next toy trend.

Making Ice Cream

Two weeks ago Te Ngahere made Ice cream. We had to answer a variety of questions Related to a story. We also had to have had everyone complete their learning plans in the ten minutes. Luckily we had completed that. After the ice cream was finished we were able to taste it. Next time i'll never put my lips one the side while salt is there.

                   The tangelo

As I peeled the skin off the tangelo it sounded as crunchy as a crunchy bar. I couldn’t wait to devour its juicy segments. It felt like I was running my hands over a mountain. It looked the sun about to burst into one thousand pieces. I tasted one of the segments and all I thought in my mind was YUM. About a dozen drops of orange juice squirted out and all I could smell was the tangelos insides.

I have been learning to write a piece of descriptive writing of a small part of what I did in the holidays. Our success criteria was:
Line 1 - What you were doing
Line 2 - Something that was happening
Line 3 - Something you did
Line 4 - Why you did it.
Then the rest we had to figure out ourselves.
I think that my description and adjectives was good but I could of worked on with not saying water as many times as I did. I maybe could have added more lines of description but it was pretty hard and I just gave up.
