Immersion Assembly Musical Madness

WALT: using exciting language in a recount
Walt: write a recount about a personal experience. Walt: use exciting language to share our ideas.

Chit, Chat, Chit, Chat as me and my friends keep chatting about what we did in the holidays she was talking while I was listening. Next we were waiting in line for our teacher to take us to assembly. As Miss West took us to assembly in the hall we kept walking and talking then my friend didn’t get to finish because we sat down on the floor in the hall. As everyone sat down Mr Burt (Principal) welcomed us in a nice and awesome greeting back to school. Next he and Mr Wiseman (Electric Guitar), Mr Somerville (Drums) and Mrs Nua (Tambourine) played their song called Musical Madness.
Next was Team 1 the junior teachers had shown what the juniors are going to be doing this term. Team 1 was showing how music can make you feel and have emotion and what it makes you do like cleaning, dancing and singing. After their one Team 2 was next to show their one that Team 2 was learning. Team 2’s one was about singing together and making more music together so they got tiny instruments to play to the song In The Jungle. Later on it was Team 3’s turn they didn’t get up on stage because their one was a video they made and it was about them and music they used songs that was their favourite songs and lip synced them and putting them in.
Next was Team 4, Team 4’s teachers were in a car and was playing all kinds of music. They were driving all the way to school playing music so loud then when they got to school Mr J was in his van and stared while playing his cool music and Team 4 teachers just stared in a funny way. Last but not least it was Team 5, Team 5’s teachers were acting as a family and watched a movie called the !!!!LION KING!!!!.When they played the movie it was only a little bit of the movie and they played a few times but played it with all kinds of different background musics like scary, happy, weird and also !!!!LET IT GO!!!! But then Mrs Telea said “don’t let the baby go” it was so funny.
Part of music I want to learn is how to play an instrument like drums and a ukelele. I wanna learn how to play these because the drums make sounds  like this BOOM BOOM BOOM it sounds so cool I also want to learn how to play when I am so mad at my brothers. I also would like to play a ukelele because it sounds really peaceful to play when your happy. These are instruments I want to play because just like my sisters they know how to play  a ukulele too.
I really like the theme for this term because we can make beats and songs. The other reason I like it is because we got to choose which lalabye we can use for our animations for the juniors to use for their learning about music. I really like that it is called Musical Madness and it is so fantastic that we get to make music and use beats as well.

One Tree Hill Star dome
First of all we walked off to enter the doors of star dome then we walked in a room then we meet a man called John he was teaching us more about the solar system. He told us what the small planets are called and they are called midget planets. The big planets were just planets.
Next we got sent off into teams from our groups which we had four in each group. Next we had to look around the gallery and try and answer the questions that were on the clipboard it was kind of hard doing because there was a lot of people in the gallery but I managed to get through with it.  
After that we had to sit on the mat near the dome door. We also had to give the clipboard’s to John so he could make the results of who won in the competition. Next he sent us off into the dome and told us to fill up the back seats first then start walking up. Next he was telling us of what we would see at night time. He also told us that we could see Jupiter and Saturn at night time. Then he told us all the stuff we could see like a kiwi and a scorpion.
Later on we watched a movie made from America's NASA.
That movie we watched was a trailer that we watched at school aswell and that was very interesting for me to watch and I did luckily from stardome I was so happy when it started. The movie was in the future and what might happened to this world. The movie was about a dad named Mr.Trout which he was so interested about our atmosphere and if we could live on it and if there was any other planet we could live on it. Then Mr.Trout sent a man to space when he didn’t even know that Mr.Trout daughter had gone then Ashley Trout. Then they had to find information on three planets or moons and they did.Then they noticed that Earth was the only planet that we could live on and then that was the end.
In the end
We went outside and said thank you to John and then we jumped on the bus and headed back to school.

In a normal world it  was nice and clean… next minute the world began to get polluted with people throwing rubbish into the sea and animals are dieing. Then there was 2 astronauts that decided to leave Earth and look for a different world when they left they discovered new planets.

The first planet they discovered was Mercury, Mercury with was a colour of grey. When they went there it was to dark and there was no oxygen so they left the planet and left to Venus.

Venus was a planet that was to hot. The planet Venus was the first hot planet but the second planet close to the sun. The planet was way too hot so they left the planet and discovered a planet that was never discovered.

When they went there it looked like it was night time but when they got there they saw water so they went sleep and woke up the next day. Which when the next day they happened it looked like it was morning. So 2 years later they started  building and later on they they found out that the planet had oxygen and so they took off their suits and changed into their clothes and they lived in a world that will always be clean.

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.

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.
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.

What do I need to think about?
  • My introduction explains my topic: A bicycle is ...
  • I explain how a bike works:
    • Wheels
    • Saddle
    • Handlebars
    • Brakes
    • Gears

  • My explanation ends with one sentence: this is how a bike works.
  • I have used key words to describe the parts of the bike.
  • I explain how different parts of a bike work  (at least 3).
  • Every sentence has a capital letter and full stop.
  • I have read my writing and it makes sense for the reader.
  • A buddy has read my writing and agrees that it makes sense.

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.

What do I need to think about?
  • My introduction explains my topic: A helicopter is ...
  • I explain how I made my paper helicopter:      
    • First
    • Second
    • Next
    • The last thing I did was

  • My explanation ends with one sentence: My helicopter flew ...
  • I have used key words to describe what I did.
  • I explain the different steps it took to make the helicopter.
  • Every sentence has a capital letter and full stop.
  • I have read my writing and it makes sense for the reader.
  • A buddy has read my writing and agrees that it makes sense.
