Social Dancing Blog Post

All the Yr 5/6 boys and girls were in the hall getting ready to dance. Some of the girls didn't want to dance but the boys didn't care about it. The 2 choreographers came into the hall and began the lessons. We had to grab hold of our partner and get ready. We started dancing and it was actually pretty fun. Everyone started getting use to it. Everyone was having fun. At the end of the session we all had to do the chicken dance. All the Yr 6's were moaning and laughing because we had done this dance before. The Yr 5's were all wondering what was happening. So we started the dance and everyone was laughing. The next day at social dancing everyone was actually excited and the next day. Everyone was having fun no matter what dance we did. We learnt the Disco Jive, Foxtrot, Cha Cha Cha and the 
Chicken Dance.

Palmerston North

                                          Palmerston North Trip

96, 97, 98, 99, 100! Yay! We did it, we finally did it. "Uh what exactly did you do?" Asked James. "We counted to 100 with out even moving." I answered. So we continued the trip for the next half an hour(30 min). The only thing everyone was doing in the van was singing, talking, dancing and playing games. It was fun though. 30 mins later we reached Palmerston North."Finally!" Tamelia shouted. "Whoa Tamelia who knew you actually could shout that loud." Jax said. We were at the park taking a break. After our play we went in groups and took a walk around the plants, looking at the plants. We found lots and lots of painted rocks. It was really fun. We spotted 4 plants, they were Kawakawa, Harakeke, Daylight Lillypad and Moss. After that we ate lunch and had another play.

Writing Prove it 37

L.I Can I use personal voice to add effect?

"Where are all the birds?'' I asked myself. So far on this walk I've only seen 1 Falcon and that's it. Awhina talked to us about all the plants, trees and what their purpose is. When we learnt about Rangiora I saw all the birds flying up in the sky. I was feeling a little panicked, I thought there was a earthquake or a cyclone or a Hurricane, I thought it was the last day for me. Soon I just realised that it was the loud noise that we were making. After the tour we drank some tea out of Kawakawa leaves. It was yum, we left Gordon's Bush and headed back to school.

Writting Prove it 30

L.I. Can I use speech marks in my stories?

"Hey Preston" yelled Kyzahn from the other side of the road, "Hi Kyzahn" I yelled back. I told Kyzahn to come to me so we could get ice-cream, he agreed with me. "What flavour should we get Kyzahn?" I asked. "We should get chocolate." Kyzahn said. We got our ice-cream and walked back to my house and played video games. "Lets play Halo 5." Kyzahn said and we played until 2:00 in the morning. It was the best day ever.

Acostic poem T2 W1

McDonald's was full of people so it took a while to get our order.

Coke was the only drink that my cousin was drinking.

David was always wanting lots of food from McDonald's.

On the counter there was a tiny statue of Ronald McDonald.

No one was in the play ground so we had it all to our selves.

At McDonald's the people at the counter gave us a word find.

Later on there was a group of people singing outside.

Dogs were eating the food that was dropped on the floor.

Smells delicious.

Workshop 25 Prove It

At the end of the day I came back from school Mum came inside with a box that was jiggling around. There was a hole in the box, I peeked inside "Boo". An eye peeked through the box. Mum opened the box, there was a little green alien. He looked terrified when he looked at us, he had a joy stick on his head, one eye and brown spots all over his body. So I took care of him and the first time I saw him smile he had two buck teeth, so I named him Bucky. 

The next day I walked to school I told Bucky to stay home and stay out of trouble. As James came to pick me up and walked with me to school, Bucky jumped in my bag with out me noticing. When I was in music class our class made some music and then Bucky joined in. I told him that he was very cheeky in the middle of the song. As the teacher asked me what I was doing, I answered with "Nothing Mr Frank". 

As me Bucky and James walked home James was asking me what he was, I answered "I don't know". When me and Bucky reached home, I went to my room and played games. Bucky came and wanted to play and when he was playing I went to bed. On Wednesday Bucky woke up and had breakfast, or as he calls it beastfast because he eats a lot. At that moment I knew we were going to be best friends.

Prove It Workshop 24

On camp our class walked through the tall green itchy grass. We needed to climbed over a fence to get to the mud run, the dirt path to the mud run was very squishy and browner then my eyes. We finally got to the mud run. We walked in the gooey squishy mud. All of the mud was sticking to my red, crimson shirt. The mud was taller then me I could barely touch the ground. The dirt inside of the mud was wetter then a seal. The mud made me feel like I was in a giant bowl of pudding. The sticky mud was pulling me to the ground. When we were all out every one was covered in mud like they came out of a chocolate fountain shower.

So I walked to Marks Average Arcade to buy some hot hotdogs. After a few hours the hot day started to cool so I bought as many Igloo Ice creams I could buy.

Community Walk

On Monday Room 1/2 went for a  walk with Miss Hume, Mrs Palmer and Mrs McAvoy. We were talked about all of the things we could see that we could personify for our writing. We taking  breaks every 10 minutes. Every break we took we talked about the new personification we could make and the communities we saw. On one of the breaks a dog came and sat down by us. At the end of the walk we walked to the park but then it started to rain on us. So we ran to cover under the trees. It was a while until the rain stopped so we ate our morning tea under the trees. When the rain was starting to stop  Mrs Hume called three cars to come pick some of us up  only 4 people could go in each car. The rest of the class walked back to school with umbrellas.

Paragraph Writing

In class we have been learning to groups similar ideas into paragraphs. Here is one I wrote about an important person to me.

My Dad has lot’s of hair in his beard.  It tickles me when he hugs me.  He doesn't shave his beard as he likes it too much.  He has dark brown eyes and he wears glasses because he has bad eyesight.  He has black hair like me with tiny grey hairs in it.  He got them because he is getting older.
