This is Why We Need Skeletal System


Today for inquiry we created a Gif about the skeletal systems. We used EzGif to to create this Gif. We used Play-Doh and toothpick to create a human figure to show you what it looks like without bones and with bones. The toothpick stands for the "skeleton" on the human clay. We learnt that there are 300 bones for new born and 206 for adults. The  reason why we created this Gif was to show you why we need the skeletal system and how important they are. 

Making Connections

Today for reading I read the book called I'm a Wimp. First we did Reciprocal reading. Then I made a Making connection and answered the all of the questions.

This week we were learning about Metaphor's. First I read the poem called Seasons. Then we answered all of the questions. For example, "What is the Metaphor?"

Kiwi Sports - Rippa Rugby

This term for Kiwi Sport coach Hamish taught us about how to play Rippa Rugby. First we were separated into  three teams. Then we played the game called rugby net ball. The rule is simple if someone touched when you have a rugby ball you need to pass to other team mate. 

Kiwi Can

The theme of this term is Integrity and our topic is Making Good choices and Bad choices. The Integrity is doing good things when someone was no watching. The example of Making good choices are don't play games when you are learning and Bad Choices are playing games when you are doing learning. Then we move on to the energizer and played the game called Protect the Jedi. For this game we need to hit the Jedi using the soccer ball. I had fun doing this activity and I manage to hit the lot of people.

Today we created a DLO about words clines. All the words had to mean the same thing and to relate to the same topic. I think that clines are words that we can use to make more powerful sentences.


Key into Evaluation
Level One Set T2

Evaluation requires the skills or reorganisation and inference.  Answers
must come from the information in the story. Look for keywords. Consider
the writer’s intent.

The Flagman

The man who lives across the road from me has a flagpole in his front yard.  
He has lots of different flags, I always look to see which one is flying.

He has one with a bright yellow sun on it and he puts it up on hot summer
days.  He put it up on a dark day in the middle of winter a couple of years ago.
It didn’t make me feel any different and he hasn’t done it again.  Some of his
flags advertise things, some have pictures like the one with the sun, and
some are just designs. He loves them all.

He’s not a young man, and he tripped one day, stumbled forward and fell
against the wall of his house.  The next thing I knew, he had his arm in plaster
and in a sling. The day after that I was surprised to see that his flag was not
at the top of the flagpole.  Flying a flag low means someone has died. I
asked him who it was. It was his turn to be surprised - he didn’t know
what I was talking about.

I pointed up at the flag.  He seemed quite upset. He undid the rope and
awkwardly tugged on it, to raise the flag higher.  I took a step forward and
tugged it with him. It went to the top and he fastened the rope firmly at the
bottom of the pole.

a.  Who is the first up in the morning, the man across the road or the writer?  
Why do you say that?
The first person up in the morning is man across the road because the writer
say “I always look to see which one is flying” that means man across the
road is already put the flag before the writer looks.

b.  Why do you think he flew the flag with the sun on it in the middle of winter?
He flew the flag with the sun on it in the middle of winter because he wanted
to make people feel better on a dark day.

c.  Had someone died?  Why do you say that?
Someone didn't die because he didn't know what it meant and he was

d.  Why did the writer help the man raise the flag higher?
The writer help the man raise the flag higher because he couldn’t get the flag
to the top with his arm in the praster.

Reaction question:

Do you think it was a good thing for the neighbour to fly flags?  Why do you
say that?
I think it was a good thing for the neighbour to fly flags because it represent
This week for reading we read the poem called The Flag man. Then I wrote the answer using the question and words from the poem. 

A summer and winter walk

In summer I get dressed for school and make sure my arms see the sunlight.
The street awake and chattering.
Trees motionless and attractive.
Birds are flying and whistling.
Clouds high in the sky and far, far away from humanity.
Carefree people laugh and smile.

The bell goes but no one hurries to class

In winter I get dressed for school and make sure my arms are hidden from the darkness.
The street asleep and silent.
Trees moving and unsightly.
Birds are hiding in their nests.
Heavy clouds are low in the sky, nearly touching the earth.
Downcast people moan and whine
The bell goes and everyone hurries to class.

Today John, Miki and I, wrote our own version of Two Day Wonder by David Hill. The poem was a about a good day and bad day. We created our own version that describes walking to school in summer and in winter to show how writers can use juxtaposition to paint a clear picture in the reader's mind. Juxtaposition is when two things are side by side that are opposites.

 To help us use powerful describing words we looked at synonyms. We then used the synonyms to create a word cline. This helped us to see some words are stronger than other words. We tried to use strong words to hook in our audience by painting a picture in their mind,

Today for Tech we were learning about Light, Shade and Shadow. I draw the shapes and pictures using the Light, Shade and Shadow.  I had fun doing drawing and I learned that when I draw the shade the shade must be light to dark.

The English Language

The English Language

L.I. Language features - End rhyme
Parts of speech - Homonyms

Some people say that you’re a dear,
yet dear is far from cheap.
A jumper is a thing you wear.
yet a jumper has to leap.
It’s very clear it’s very queer,
and pray who’s to blame
for different meanings to some words
pronounced and spelt the same?
A little journey is a trip,
a trip is when you fall.
It doesn’t mean you have to dance
whene’er you hold a ball.
Now here’s a thing that puzzles me:
musicians of good taste
will very often form a band -
I’ve got one round my waist!

Harry Helmsley

Words that look the same but have different meanings are called?

Write out three pairs from the poem.
  • Ball
  • Trip
  • Band

The words at the end of some lines rhyme, this is called?
“A end rhyme”
Write out three pairs from the poem.
  • Dear/wear
  • taste/waist
  • Ball/fall

Write another 2 lines that could be included in this poem.
Illustrate your verse.

I hit the ball with a Bat.

I saw a Bat in the cave.

Today we were learning about what homonyms and end rhymes were. There was a poem that we had to finish. I worked collaboratively with my friend John.

Hineahuone - The Making of the First Women.


For inquiry we will be learning about the body system and to incorporate traditional Maori stories Mrs Anderson has prepared an inquiry about the Maori belief of Hineahuone. In Maori myth Hineahuone was the first lady created. She was created because the gods created an immaculate earth but their was no one to enjoy it. So Tane Mahuta molded Hineahuone out of the red earth. The impressed Tāwhirimātea whispered "Take my breath, and give her life." Tane then bent over the women he made and breathed deeply. The woman's chest moved and she sneezed. "Tihei" the god's were ecstatic. Today the hongi is a traditional welcome that came to be because of the story of Hineahuone.

Note: If can not clearly see the pictures or the words you can click on them to have a better view.

104 words

Today we used the ‘2 words 1 minute’ challenge to write a description about the Winter Olympics. After talking in pairs about the things we knew about the winter Olympics we created a list of words (vocabulary) that would help us write our description. We chose the words ‘equipment’ and ‘respect’ to help us think about what we were going to write.

We talked about ideas with a partner, then we had 1 minute to put those ideas into sentences. We had to try our best to use all the words on our vocab list. After the minute was up we had 2 minutes to reread what we had written and make changes if anything didn’t make sense, or if we had words and punctuation in the wrong place. When we finished checking we had 2 more minutes to carry on writing our descriptions.

All the words I highlighted in my paragraph are the words used on my word list. I did really well is use the words on my list. I need to try hard to use the powerful words.
