Walt: tell a story using a variety of sentences of different lengths; and

Captain Taniwhas Ending story

While Captain Taniwha was down in the sea he saw a big shark/whale out of his window. He didn’t know what to do so he thought and thought until he saw a boat on top of the sea so said “ how could I get all the way to the top of the sea”. Then he thought of an idea and he did it. He had a statue of him so he put it in front of him then he went to the back of his spaceship and swam to the top and climbed onto the ship. Next he saw that was now body on the ship and then he sailed away on the ship.

When he finally got to land he saw the spaceship station and he ran there. Then he saw a rocket and got inside and setted up the rocket to get ready for the  blast of and there he was ready to set off. 10,  9,  8,  7,  6,  5,  4,  3,  2,  1,  BLAST OFF! There Captain Taniwha was off to space. When he was in the rocket he noticed that there was a picnic bag and bottles of water he was thirsty and he was hungry. He went into the bag and started eating sandwiches, cookies, chips and some other kind of food. Then he drank some water and was soon finished for eating.

While he was looking out the window he saw the snotty nose then he quickly turned away and didn’t realise the aliens on planet mars. He went to land there and have a chat to them. When they got there he realised that they had homes in one village that was very big then he went and said “ I have come to live here”. So they said “yes”. Then they lived happily after.

Matariki Celebration Recount


First of all
On Friday we had assembly like  always and at assembly we had Kauri Flats presented us a presentation about what a flounder is and how we use it to keep it safe. The flounder is used for fish but people make sure that they have to put sand at the bottom to keep them alive.
Next
We went in our lines back to class and got our stickers that said our name and what class we were going to. Then we got sent to the classes that we were suppose to go to celebrate Matariki.                                                                                                               
After that
I went to Room 18 which we were doing crafting. The type of craft we did was weaving fish and stars. The juniors went to weave into a paper fish, then the seniors from Year 4 and over are weaving fish. Then after people made weaved fish they made weaved stars that had one strip black and one strip white I didn’t make one because it looked hard but i did end up making my own kind of weaved star.
Later on
When people made everything, juniors and seniors coloured a worksheet that had colouring pages and had word searches and they were all about Matariki.
In the end
We watched three story myths about Matariki and they all were different some were in maori and some were in English. Then we had to go to assembly.

How Does A Bike Work

How does a bike work?

A bike is something that you can ride on to go to places quicker than walking. A bike has two wheels in different places one wheel is in the front and one is in the back. It is safer to wear a helmet on your head, before you start riding. To fit on the helmet on your head it is safer to put the strings as a Y instead of a V because it will be loose which will come off when you ride with it. The bike will go faster if  you have more gears on your bike which will make your bike go faster while climbing hills and going down hills. Bikes have spokes on the inside of the wheel to make the wheel in place to also make it  in a place that can make it move. Bikes have a seat to sit while you ride.When bikes  go up hills that are really high use your paddles as fast as you can to make you go up the hill faster instead of going back down. This is how bikes work.

Helicopters

Making a paper helicopter


A helicopter is something they use to use good emergencies. The first thing we did was to  get prepared of seeing how Mrs Buchanan did it and follow the instructions.  Then we got into pairs of three then got the things we needed. Next we started by using the scissors to cut the straight lines that were highlighted back, but we had to fold the dotted lines which means we can’t cut the dotted lines. Then we folded the bottom and put a paper clip on to hold and put on extra weight to make it go down instead of flying away.  Next we drew our name in a style that made it nice. When we were all finished I went to check if anybody was in the hall so that we could go in it and try out our helicopters. When we put the helicopter in the air it falls and spins around like a helicopter. My helicopter flew high from the stage and span fast as  it went round and round as fast it could.

Different Pronouncements


Once upon a time

Walt: tell a story about our chosen character using interesting sentences.

Planning and writing a recount

First of all
We learned how swimming is important to us and how were suppose to keep safe in the water. Next we learned how to arm circle with a board and after that we learned how to arm circle with no board and to breath 2 arms and then keep going. After that the next day we learned how to use life jackets and how to  know that the life jacket fits us and to know how to buckle up and make it tight. Later on we learned how to save someone near water, and to do that we can save them using a floaty that that can be on your boat, which mostly they have a floating ring that has a rope attached to it, to pull it. In the end we had a race to see if we could swim 150 meters and then we went into the big pool and swam 2 whole laps around one isle. The first day I went swimming was on the second week on the first day.We went and had a shower to be wet before we jumped in the pool. We were learning how to arm circle with a board then we did it with no board. When we were swimming  with arm circles we had to breath after 2 arm circles along with the third.

How to make your homemade poi

18 Apr 2017 17:13:20.jpgHow to make a homemade Poi  

Paragraph. 1 (Introduction)
To make a homemade poi you have to make sure that you have the right things into making it. First to make a poi you actually have to prepare of what you have got and made sure you have it. The things you need is a plastic bag, a pair of scissors, some fluff from a pillow, some string, and a loom band.

Paragraph. 2 (Facts)
Step. 1  
The plastic bag you have should be open wide. Next you have to put your fluff in the bag and squish it up tight which means that the plastic bag shouldn’t be full with fluff just put a little bit in.
Step. 2
The next part is to cut a little bit near the fluff inside the plastic bag and just move onto the string. The string you have can be any kind of colour and can be as long as you want ( but not to long). For other styles for your string, you can plait it or two plait and last twirl it.

Paragraph. 3 (Information)
Step. 3 (Final Step)
Finally you have to get you plastic bag with your fluff in it and connect it with your string. To do that you have to get you string and put it with the fluff inside the plastic bag but just the end of the poi. Secondly you have twirl your plastic bag and get your loom band and tie it around your your plastic bag. Then your poi is done and finished from how you made.

Paragraph. 4 (Conclusion)

To make a poi you can also use other materials to make one. The poi is very fun because you can practice your kapahaka moves to make it better. The only reason why you can make a poi easily is because the material can be different.
