Grey Main School : Book Day!

Today we had our school book day! I dressed up as Pippi Longstocking. Pippi Longstocking is a fictional character who has no parents but a horse and a monkey called Mr.Nelson she is very kind and wears…. a navy blue dress with red patches from a different peice of clothing sowed on to it. She has bright ginger hair and has odd pairs of stockings on and if she is not seen with her stockings on she is probably in bear feet. She wears worn out shoes and walks backwards. Her hair is always in two plaits, which are standing up on end. Today there were some Harry Potter’s, Hermione Granger’s, 2 Pippi Longstocking’s and lots of other amazing characters and costumes! Here is a picture of the book and a picture of me at school all dressed up!

Me!                                          The Book!


Hanmer Camp!

We went on camp to Hanmer Springs! It was really fun because we did Mission impossible (team building exersizes) , orienteering ,spent $5 at the lolly shop, went to the hot pools and we did tree climbing. Then today we had to make something like a montage of pictures from Hanmer Camp and I made it on google drawings. Here is mine!

St John First Aid!

Yesterday we went and did first aid with somebody who works in the ambulence for St John. We learnt about heaps of safty rules, techniques and what to do in an emergency. Afterwards we had to make a google drawing with 3 facts that we learnt at St John, 3 pictures or videos about what we learnt and 3 or more sentences about what we learnt at St John. Here is the one I created.

Summarising a movie trailer!

We have been summarising a movie trailer in class. It is about 12 boys and there coach that got stuck in a cave in Thailand and the cave was filling up with water because of an early monsoon. I found it pretty easy this time because we had done summarising a bit in the last few days but I found adding detail a bit trickier with the movie trailer. Here is the trailer, my bullet points for it and my summary.


Bullet points


My Taonga

Over the last few weeks we have been making taonga’s. A taonga can be made out of anything and it is something that is important to you or your whanau. There are lots of different shapes and meanings for diffrent types of taonga. We made them out of clay and then painted them with different shades of green. I did the shape Pikiroa (twist) and it was a lot harder then it looked! Here it is!

Summer Learning journey Trick shot: Kick start!

Hi this is the link to me doing my trick shot challenge. I chose to do the one with the paper towel roll. I didn’t have anything to put it on so I chose to use a stick some stones and a bucket. At first I missed it by a long way but by practicing and practicing and even changing the agles and lengths of everything I finally got it in! I was so proud of myself because I never knew I could even do that but with some work I did it! So what I learn’t was if I comit or put my mind to do something I can do it and persevere!!!!! Then at the end of it be PROUD!!!!
