Night time Bugs Poem

In my reading group we read a poem called Early. We wrote a poem as a group for our activity

Glittering stars and shining moon
Bugs snuggle in there warm cocoon
Stars cover night sky
Bugs in the trees so high
They come out have drink and make friends
Wind and thunder blends 
Worms sleep underground
Other bugs all around

Prove It W/S 27

Can I add interest to my writing by using similes and metaphors?

The referee blew the whistle. I tapped the ball and stepped out amongst all the people. A guy tagged me. I rolled the ball under my legs my team mate passed it out wide and then we knocked the ball on. They tapped it and they knocked it on straight away. I get to tap the ball again. I step and I was running as fast as a cheetah. The guy behind me is like a flash but I still get the try.

Cave Paintings

                                        Related image
In class in inquiry we have been learning about cave paintings. In most cave paintings they use charcoal, limestone and they also use ochre and animal fat. I think that this one is made of charcoal. and I think they have used sticks to create it. They drew this so people knew what animal they saw around them.

The best thing about my animals that he can catch prey easily with his claws. He's able to swim fly and walk on human land. He's got the wings of a hawk and the teeth of a shark. He's got eyes like an eagle and snipers like a crab. He also has the horns of a bull. He is the best pet ever, he will live in my house for ever and ever.

Chunky Chalks

Chunky Chalks

Mrs Palmer read a book to  tell us to what we need to do to make Chunky Chalks. We followed the instructions and made our own.

My favourite part was stirring the colours and mixing them into the liquid chalk.

QuestionWhat will happen when we mix Plaster of Paris with water?

Plaster of Paris, water, bowl, spoon, measuring cups, 2 plastic bags.

  1. In a bowl tip 2 cups of Plaster of Paris and ¾ cup of water.
  2. Add some dye to colour it.
  3. Stir the mixture until there is are no lumps and it is smooth.
  4. Divide the mixture in half. Put half in one plastic bag and the other half in the other plastic bag.
  5. Take all the air out of the bag and seal it up.
  6. Put the bag on the bench and after an hour make an observation.
  7. Leave there for at least 24 hours.
  8. Open the bag and see what you can do with it.

  1. After an hour we picked up the plastic bag and it felt warm and was starting to go hard.
  2. The next day it was very hard and had formed into a shape.

Gypsum (calcium sulfate) is one of the ingredients of Plaster of Paris. Gypsum is found as a mineral rock. The calcium sulfate is bound together by water which keeps it in its solid form.

When gypsum is heated gently water is lost and the crystals become white powder. When we add water to this powder, the water recombines with the gypsum. As this happens the mixture gets hot (an exothermic chemical reaction occurs) and forms a paste which then sets hard.

Green Pastures Camp

Splash splash went the water while I was going down the mud slide. Again, again I said to myself when I was getting out of the water. I so wanted to do it again! Swish! The guy next to me launched down the slide. I am up next. Ow! I landed on my tummy and belly flopped into the lake. The mud slide was my favourite activity during camp.

The Growing Marble

Hypothesis: I think the little
ball is going to make the water change change colour.
Materials: Water, a cup and a marble made of a special
kind of plastic.

  1. Fill the cup up with water.
  2. Put the marble in the water.
  3. Wait a few hours to see what happens to
    the marble


1st First I saw the marble had a bubble barrier
around it.
2nd The marble grew a little bit more.
3rd The marble soaked up most of the water
and it was invisible in the water.
4th The marble absorbed the water and
got bigger.

The marble dropped which pulled air into the cup.
The bigger the marble got the it pushed the bubbles
away from it. The marble soaked up all the water which
made it see through and made it way, way bigger.
The marble was more water than the plastic.

If I was to do this again I would use food colouring in the water.

They had sons.  Just to name of few, there was Tāwhirimatea and Tānemahuta.  They were cramped in between their parents.  One of the brothers pushed his parents apart very slowly. It was hard. Then the light came into Earth.

first aid with michelle

Michelle is Mrs Lairds friend. She is a paramedic. Three things I learnt today. One of the things is if you see someone on the grownd  you say are you awake and if they don't respond  you shake them. If they still don't respond you call 111. If you burn your hand run straight to the tap and hold it under cold water for 20 minutes. If you get a little cut hold it and it will stop bleeding then wash it and put a plaster on it.

Why should we adopt a Korora?

We should adopt a Korora because they are nearly endangered. Stoats and ferrets and cats and dogs kill them and the rats eat there eggs and scare the Korora away.  Cars are running them over when they try to cross the road.  They are special to New  Zealand and Australia.We should adopt a Korora because they are nearly endangered.
