Flat pack fold out attempts

Attemp 1
In this photo I used paper clips to hold it together because Brenda said it was ok but it didn't look like I could be sold in a shop

Attempt 2 
This one was perfectly good but it would not stand up because the cardboard was to thin.

Attempt 3 
Yay this one worked. I used slots for this and joy is even making it out of wood so we can sit on it

Be bright, eat right

Today we went to watch a magic show called "Eat Right & Be Bright". Vas Kovalski was the Magician.

He taught us about the importance of eating healthy. Everyday we need to eat:
  • Fruit 
  • Vegetables
  • Grains
  • Protein
  • Dairy
If we eat well we will get all of the vitamins and minerals we need to be strong and healthy.

Buddy Olympics day

We are Hungary to win, Hungary , Hungary, Hungary. Today was buddy Olympic day
Here are some things we did:
We were all rearing to get started. I couldn't wait
This is the boat challenge. We had to blow the boats to the fi wish line with a straw. I was very proud because I won a race twice and got a lollie.
This is the egg spoon race. You were supposed to go to the first pole a walk around it and keep going to the last pole, but I forgot to go around the pole so I did it on the last pole. I also go to look after a little buddy of Blake because he wasn't her but it was ok because didn't mind.
This is the piggy back challenge. My buddy didn't want a piggy back ride so I held her hand and she basicly was pulling me through the course. It was fun. I also got to piggy back Nikita it was ok when we got started but when we were coming back my pants were starting to fall down
This is shotput. We had to get the bean bag in the bulls-eye unfortunately we didn't get it. It was enjoyable though because every minute we were laughing and graving a good time and that's what its all about

Me as a crayon

If I was a crayon there would be some things I wouldn't be happy about , like the sun being in the sky all day because I like being in earth enjoying it. I would be ok but not ok with lemonade because people would love me but I would hate when people gobble me up. Lemons would be ok because I would be really sour for most people. I would love being with the giraffes all day because I like watching them like peoples hand when they try to feed them 

From your friend  (if I was a crayon )
Yellow crayon 

I choose yellow because that color means HAPPY to me

My strength is being a strong leader

Its good to be my friend because I always make a laugh out of hard times

My holidays

" I can't wait to get there " I said. When we got there it was all happy hugs and love but at the end it all turned upside down, you'll see at the end of the story. We mucked around and talked for a while. Then we got into it at started practicing. Come on Eva and Kate lets do this. So we started a plan to get it right and we sort of  made it up along the way so we made a better plan. After that we wanted a brake so we randomly started drawing. " Girls you better hurry up , Lydia's mum is coming soon". Said Mia. Then we stared to panic, we recovered and got back to it. But then Evas Ipad went flat so we had to use mine." Oh no " we all said. When we finally finished and stared putting into the Imovie, my iPad ran out of storage I went out of Imovie without saving the movie and I deleted the videos for the music videos except for the ones that hadn't been put in and when we went back it said MISSING VIDEOS!!!!!Then my mum pulled up, we faked cried , my mum tried to fix it, we rang nic , couldn't fix it , fake cry some more. Then Mia yelled out " PIZZAA "!!!!! We all ended up happy and then I had to go home. "Bye" I said . " Bye " they said. THE END

Camp week

This week the year 4's from Joy's , Brenda's and Rosie's class are having a week helping us with our cooperation skills. While the year 5's are out on camp. Here are some photos of what we've been doing.

Tuesday Water day: Joy is teaching us some skills for when we are in the sea. We are learning to hop in the raft and flip of the end. We both have to go in at the same time or the raft won't balence correctly.
Something that went well was forming a circle so the helicopter can see us.
Water day: in this photo we are having a water fight. The main thing we are doing in this water fight to help us with our learning is sharing . But we had a problem and we couldn't get the pipes for the bunch of balloons and we problem solved by getting an adult. Feelings- COLD

Kids republic - in this photo we are all playing together and using the equipment correctly.
We were all sharing that whole time. Feeling - hot and happy

Tuesday Construction day -  in this photo we are using the imaginz and we built a stall.
We were all sharing and working together. We had to listen to each other's idea. Feelings - proud of our creation

Monday Bledisloe park - in this photo we are working together to make a dam while we had free time for lunch.Our social skill was sharing. It was challenging lifting up all of the heavy rocks.

Wednesday art day - in this photo we have our finished product of inlarging small pictures to make them bigger. We also made little pixies and a mural in the library and put our pixies on the mural. we made our pixies out of leaves and petals. Something that was challenging was getting the inlarging right or half of the head would be bigger. Feeling - frustrated 

Friday camp out day - in this phot we are drinking milk and singing in a circle. We had scavenger hunts and we had s'mores and pizza for lunch. Izzy , Libby , Ava , Sofina , danika, Mikaela, juliette and I all slept in danika's tent. We were all sharing things in the tent. Feelings - happy

Apple crumble week

This week we are selling Apple crumbles for five dollars. To fundraise to get the food for the chickens.
I felt a little frustrated cutting the apples into quarters to go into the food proceser because it was hard trying not to cut myself. But it was really estatic selling the apple crumbles because everyone was patient lining up not screaming for them and it all went well. We raised $605 for the chicken food. Some money we might fundraise. We made 132 apple crumbles. By the way the apple crumbles were YUM!!

My week

White hat ( what I've done this week ) : gardening, swimming and our projects 

Black hat ( what was challenging ) : gardening because trying to get them out of the container and if they were wrapped up it was hard to pull them apart

Yellow hat (what went well ) : swimming because it was fun to help each other with a noodle or two milk bottles to get to the other end.
