Paragraph writing

In class we have been learning to group similar ideas into paragraphs.  Here are two I wrote about an important person to me.

Theo is my friend. He has brown hair that hangs over his ears.  It reminds me of a mop.  He has freckles all over his face.  His eyes are as brown as the brownest brown of all.  His skin is pale from staying inside playing the xbox.  

Theo is funny and always trying to crack jokes.  He doesn’t like exercise and he calls himself the laziest bub of all.  He has a quirky sense of humour just like me.

Water experament

What you will need:
1: A large bowl.
2: A glass mug (make sure it is bigger than the bowl).
3: A large rubber band.
4: Glade wrap.
5: Water.

Put the water in the medium size bowl and fill it quarter of the way.
Put the mug right side up in your bowl.
Put the glad wrap over the bowl then seal it with some string or some rubber bands.
Put the bowl in the sun and wait for something to happen.

The results:
The sun heated up the water and it evaporated up towards the glad wrap. Condensation formed on the glad wrap. When water vapour became heavy it dropped in to the cup like rain. (precipitation)

Prove it to move it work shop 8 writing.

L.I. Can I use full stops, exclamation marks, and question marks to end sentences?
I'm going  to the park, I'm getting there on bike. "Dad, what is the parks name?"I asked. "St Marks Park!" Dad had to shout because a large truck rumbled past. when we got there there was an ambience. "What's going on?" I asked. "Its just a drill." Said the driver. Then I went on the swing, Dad gave me a big push. "Weeeeeee!" Then we had lunch and went home. "That was fun. Can we do it again?" I asked. "OK" said Dad.


This is a popplet that me and Mehki made about the stages of making a building.

Hedgehog in your garden.

L.I. Can I locate and summarize the main ideas?
We made a google drawing about the main ideas from our book.

Hedgehogs are little creatures with spines, they have up to 7000 of them all most all of the body is covered in them, their head belly and chest are have brown and grey fur.

Hedgehogs are nocturnal, which means that they sleep all day and are awake at night

If you want hedgehogs in your garden, (they are good for eating garden pests like snails, caterpillars, etc.) then just leave some piles of leaves, long grass, and some food. But don't feed them bread and milk because this could be harmful to them. Try leaving out some crunchy peanut butter, muesli and tinned pet food.

Hedgehog babies are called hoglets, and are born litters.

If you do have hedgehogs in your backyard you must be careful not to leave out rubbish. Also don't put weed killers and other garden products around this may harm them.

Thinking Interdependently

We have been learning about thinking interdependently. Here is my word cloud with some words that mean the same.

Weekly Refletion Term 2 week 1

What: In the holidays I went to Wellington museum (Te Papa) to see the Gallipoli war exhibition. It was so worth the 45 minute line up to get in. When you get in, the first thing you see is a massive general looking man on his side shouting and pointing a pistol at something. Then you go in a room with some maps and guns and a slide show. There were more rooms like this and more statues. In one room there was a cool 3D slide show that you had to wear 3D glasses like the ones at the movies. There was also a big touch screen thing on the wall that had pictures of bombs and bullets. In the middle was a skeleton. When you tap the bombs and bullets you could see what happened to the person. In another room there was another tap screen but in this one you could make a badge and send it to your email. There was another 2 screens, but they were not touch screen.  It just showed people in the trenches. And at the end there was a room where you could write a message on a paper poppy and throw it down to the feet of a soldier.

So what: I learnt about all the affects of all the bombs and shells.

Now what: My goal for this term is to get all of my work finish on time.
