Friday Music

Every Friday Chrissie and Paula come out to our school and teach music. We are learning to play ukuleles, a melodica, kazoos, recorders and drums.

We know how to sing (and play our instruments to) In The Jungle.

We are also composing our own song about growing fruit and vegetables to the tune of Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean.

Science Fair

For the Science Fair, the judges said, “Great idea and good photos. Your idea needs a little more work to get results that we can test. What happened with the drink test? A little more detail would have been good.”     Keeva

When we went to the Science Fair we saw heaps of cool science projects. The judges commented on our science.

They said, “Great problem solving going on here. You figured out the problem you had and came to a logical conclusion. Your photos show a great process and teamwork. Well done.”  Kawana

On the day the science fair was on, we looked at all the projects. The project that Kawana, Hunter and I did was called “Rocket Boat.”

The judges’ comments were, “Great problem solving going on here! You figured out the problem you had and came to a logical conclusion. Your photos show a great process and teamwork well done!”

The Science Fair was on Monday the 25 of June 2018. I read the judges’ comments. It said, “Great idea and good photos!

Your idea needs a little more work to get results that we can trust. What happened with the drinks test?  A little more detail would have been good.”

Keeva and I forgot to do the drink test – one of the most important tests.

We had lots of fun.    Tor

For the Science Fair, the judges commented on my work and they said…..

“Gosh, you had to work hard to fix these problems. Good on you for not giving up and continuing to research instead. Your results are a little confusing so more detail would have been good.”

I wasn’t actually there, but the Science Fair sounded fun!      Isla.

For the Science Fair, the judges said, “A good idea for an investigation. A simple method gave you a clear set of results. For next time think about a graph of your results and evaluating your experiment.”

At the Science Fair, there were lots of cool experiments. The one I liked the most was the growing gummy bears. All you need is:

16x gummy bears. 

4 containers.

Ruler.

Plate.

Spoon.

White vinegar.

Lemon juice.

Water.

Red wine vinegar ½ cups.

Even though I didn’t win. I loved that we got the chance to participate in the Science Fair.    Tiana

On Monday Mrs Goodall came and showed us how to make little pets out of cans. I made a chicken with eyes and a beak.

Hunter

On Monday the 18th Mrs Goodall came to teach us about reusing, recycling and compost. Once she had finished talking to us about it we made our own recycled pencil holders! I tried to make a ladybird it didn’t work out how I wanted it to. Once we all had finished we learnt about water. It was really fun

Isla.

On the 18th of June Mrs Goodall (from Zero Waste) come to our school. She told us how to make pencil holder. I made a bunny. Two people made a bunny.

First Aid Course

Kawana: When Sandra got here, she talked about what she does. Then she showed us how to leave your patient while you are ringing 111. When the patient is about to spew, you turn them. We did CPR on the mannikin babies and toddlers.

Pippa: When Sandra got to Pukeokahu, she showed us what to do when someone is vomiting, what to do when someone has a broken arm or leg and what to do when a person has a cut in their head.

Farewell to the Moyes

One day when I went to Bayden’s house we were playing halo and we did a trick on Lochy. We built a house  and there was a hole in our house. So we pretended to put a bomb down there and then Lochy pretended to explode.

Kawana

Bayden me were playing on the tramp with Boomboom and Boomboom was knocking over all the shoes. Bayden made Boomboom do a flip and it was big. Then we went down to get the shoes and put them back on the tramp. Boomboom went wild – he is so good at knocking off shoes.

Hunter

I remember on Kawana’s birthday, Bayden and Kawana went on the  tramp and they were rolling around. Then when they came inside they both had black noses. Kawana or Bayden put two hand prints on my door and it is still on there.

Tiana

I remember Bayden when he always was nice and kind to all of us. I also remember on Bayden’s birthday, when we had a crazy Nerf gun fight and a lolly scramble after that. I really miss Bayden.

Isla

When Pippa and I played on Bayden’s Xbox with Lochy, I always lost in one of his zombie games. I always got shot by Bayden.

Tor

I will remember Bayden and Lochie because they are fun to play. I still remember playing on the xbox and I always lost and Bayden always won. At school he was so funny.

Keeva

One day when I went to Bayden’s house. We went on the xbox 360 and we played Halo. Then we went on the tramp with Boomboom.

Pippa

I know I am going to miss the big grin, your great writing and our discussions on life.

Carol
