Shared lunch/Presents/Movies day

On Friday the 1st of december room 7,8,9 and 10 went to the movies to watch a film called Wonder. The movie wonder had all sorts of emotions in it and if I had the chance to watch it again I would.The movie was about a little boy called August and he has something called treacher syndrome and it makes people look different. Only 1 out of 50,000 kids get it. I think the movie was about teaching kids a lesson about that you should not like someone by what they look like but what they look like in the inside.The movie has inspired children with treacher syndrome to not be afraid about what they look like. If you read the book wonder and watch the movie in both it has a quotes that is “You can’t blend in when you were born to stand out” and I think that is really inspiring to others.
Next we came back to school and got ready to get our presents and sausage and juice and when it finally our turn I was really excited about what we were going to get I wished that I had got what asked for but if I got something different I wouldn’t mind I would just act happy and surprise and get what I get.My present was a school bag,water bottle,nail polish,a towel and knuckle bones which were really great. Then we had shared lunch with was really big because the whole school was involved in it.The shared lunch had so many yummy food, They all smelt good and delicious and I wished I could just marry them. Then lots of parents and younger and older children started to show and I saw my family which was really cool.I really enjoyed that day that day was like a activity day.

After the movies: similarities/differences

Today we were looking at what and were not the similarities in the book and the movie of Wonder.I thought that the movie was really great and I really enjoyed it.The movie had so many different emotions in it and I loved it and I hope to see it again.Feel free to comment below.

Current events Term 4 Week 4

Today we have been doing current events. Current events is when we look at different articles that Miss Morrison gives us and answer question from a presentation. ENJOY!

The power of Marshmallow/Stomach ace tower

Today we were reflecting on what we did yesterday. Yesterday Room 8 had a competition/Challenge, the challenge was that you have to try and make the biggest structure using Marshmallows and tooth picks.

On Thursday the 9th of November, room 8 did a challenge.The first thing we did was got into a group of three and then went together with another group.In my group I had Taonga and Hope.T and in the other group with us was Alyssa,Hope.L and Arizona.We did this because it was a art surprise. We had Miss Jade in our class because Miss had to do some testing. We had to try and build a tower using marshmallow and tooth picks. The point of this challenge is that you have to try and make the biggest tower under 20 minutes and you have to let it stand by it’s self and see if it’s good enough.Our one did not stand as well as we thought but at least we tried.

I really enjoyed doing this.I felt like we had just made the biggest mess out of all of them.We made our by making the base and then splitted the marshmallows and built it individually and we would stack all of our all together,our structure looked pretty funny because how we sliced the marshmallows into tiny pieces..I saw others towers looking stable and good.Then when we finished we got to eat it and it made me sick to my stomach and after just eating five I felt full but I also had the feeling that I wanted more so I just kept eating.When we went to the bathroom I felt like trowing up because the marshmallows really hit hard in my stomach.I also felt like I swallowed some tooth picks because I felt something pointy go into my stomach.

In the end wen we finished I felt really crazy and hypo and felt like I jump off the park and I could run around the field everywhere and then I felt like going to sleep which felt funny. The funny part was when we were going home in the car I kept on laughing and then went to sleep which kind of made me feel crazy and funny.You should only have one marshmallow a week. I really enjoyed making the marshmallow tower and I do not want to do it again before I eat it again and get a sore stomach again.For anyone I like to advise you t not as much marshmallows as we did.

Natural disasters

Here is my story about what we have been doing in room 8. Yesterday we made a science experiment and here is my story about it please enjoy and feel free to comment below.

On Thursday 26th October room 8 made a science experiment.We did it outside of room 1.We were learning about natural disasters and so we did a science experiment on it. We made explosions and we also made a volcano and made this type of foam out of vinegar, dish washing liquid and baking soda.

First we went outside and sat in a big circle.Then Miss Morrison added the ingredients in the bottle and put the volcano that Hamish made on top of it and the foam came out and everyone was really amazed.Secondly it started to rain so everyone went under room 1 and got into groups. I was with Carra and Dwyane.Each group got a bag of vinegar and Miss came around pouring in one spoon of baking soda.I felt very scared because I had to close the bag fast after Miss put the baking soda in.The explosion looked awesome.

We did two more explosions as a whole class then we went back up stairs.Then Miss Morrison showed us how a Tsunami would looks like. A tsunami is actually caused by a earthquake under the water.It was really cool and funny because Miss Morrison poured a lot of water out so that she can show us how it would look like.We learnt about tectonic plates and about different positions they can be in and they are  converge,diverge and transform. All those different positions of the tectonic plates are used for making volcano's, mountains,cracks,lakes and earths quakes.It was really fun and entertaining to learn about these things.

The wicked apple key

This is my story I have created about a apple key that cursed sarah jane but she makes the curse go away I hope you like it.

There was a apple key that would make any apple delicious by touching an apple with the key.
On Friday on a wet summer day there was a girl called Sarah Jane,she had black hair with orange freckles on her little face, and she lived in a little cottage house.She found a little apple key just behind her little cottage.She was as little as a mouse.She was only 5 years old.

Then when she picked it up something good happened to her she felt like something magical happened to her.Then she felt like grabbing an apple to eat and when she ate the apple it tasted delicious.The apple tasted like an angel that fell from heaven.Then she showed her mother but the mother tasted nothing good, she just tasted old rotten fruit.

Then Sarah Jane went into the wood to look for more apples.She was amazed by how much apples she found,she found 3 trees of apples just waiting for her to grab them.But then something happened when she touched them they caught on fire then she screamed “OH NO what have I done” She was so scared that she couldn't move.Then she ran all the way back home for water.Then she came and the fire was out and the apples were not on fire.She was so surprised that she screamed “what is going on,can someone please tell me whats going on” then when she remembered that “this would have never happened if she didn't touch that stupid apple key” She was so mad. She went to go dig the key but the key was nowhere to be found.

Then she found it on top of an apple then she quickly grabbed it and destroyed it and she heard a whisper in the air that said “You are a smart girl and you are now cursed free” then that is when she realized that she was cursed.She didn't like the mysterious person because she felt like the curse was because of her.

Then she went to sleep wondering what adventure will happen tomorrow.Then she lived a heavenly life with her mother by her side. Peace out.The end!!!

WALT:edit a recount

We said our chant and listened to the Kiwi can leaders. Then we played fun game where we had to be silent bands and act out different feelings and emotions. In my group we had to act out scared. I played the guitar and tried to hide behind it to act scared.

Afterwards we talked about the things that can make us feel happy and sad. For example I feel happy when I have food with my family.We got into groups of 2.Then we played a game called statues and where we had to show emotions on our faces. One person was the creator and had to make the statu look like an emotion, one was a statue and had to be made into an emotion by the creator.

After Kiwican my favourite highlight was playing the activities.I felt happy because it was fun at Kiwican.I learnt  more about resilience in Kiwican.I had an amazing time at Kiwican.
