Today I am writing about the holidays. 

I went to Wellington, it was so exciting. I went on the cable car and on the east west ferry. The cable car is a train that you go up and at the top is a museum. I didn't see much. The east west ferry is a little ferry that goes to lots of places. I forgot the places name. I went to Te Papa. Te Papa is a place that has lots of stuff  
and you can look at lots of stuff.

I was so excited because …. I am going to Marlborough. I went with my friends in Wellington. We went on a bike ride because we forgot to bring the keys but we found the spare keys. We chilled that day. The next day we went to the park and I liked the flying fox. We went to the movies we saw How To Train A Dragon 2.  

“ Yay “ I am going to Inflatable World today with Taylor. I walked in to Inflatable World. I looked around and raced to the cling wall. You had to run over a big lump and climb up on the cling wall.   

I enjoyed all the stuff I did in the Holidays. Seriously - I loved this holiday !!

Super Squid Wow Words

The New Zealand Flag

New Zealand Flag

A moment in time

I heard the wind whistling and howling in the night.
I heard my sister singing in the night.

I saw the shadows scaring me in the night.
I saw the cats running around the house.

I felt my eyes closing.
I felt my brain getting sleepier.

I wondered if I would get to sleep.
I wondered what is for breakfast.

Stoney Creek Ranch Camp

In class I have been learning about the points of the compass and directions.

This week I learnt about a programme called Scratch which uses directions to create a little computer program.

My job was to use Scratch to create something that could be shared with the rest of the class. What my Scratch was about was all down to me and my imagination! I had to be creative!

When I grow up...

As part of our topic I have been thinking about myself and what makes me special. This has led to me thinking about what I would like to be when I grow up.

I made a ToonDoo about it.


Swimming Sports

Swimming Sports is where the Year 4s, 5s and 6s at Havelock North Primary take part in swimming races in their houses. We then had to create a voki for homework about one of the races.

Our voki needed to tell the class about our favourite race at swimming sports and why we liked that one the best. We had to remember to hook our listener in and give the audience lots of interesting information.
