It was the last day of the holidays and I was thinking of all the fun stuff I did in the holidays
and this is what I did….



It was Monday, the first day of the holidays and I was going to my Nana's house. She lived by the mountains. When I got there she said she had surprise for me and my brother. When mum left, and we said goodbye next Nana pulled two presents from behind her back. Then she said “Go ahead open them.” I got a Rapunzel Lego set. William got a toy from the new transformers movie. Me and William played with our new toys. I spent the whole afternoon  building my lego set. When I finished I called Nana and she said “Are you finished?” and I said “Yes!”  


It was the second Tuesday of the holidays and I was going to go for a  bush walk with my friend Ruby. We walked down the trail and Ruby walked with me. We found a waterfall at the corner of the trail. After that we went up a path that lead to the beginning of the trail. We walked up the stairs like we started, and then we went on bus and went home.

Now its Sunday the last day of the holidays tomorrow its school.

A moment in time...

             When I Sleep I Feel


I heard mum playing on the family iPad.
I heard dad walking down the corridor.


I saw my teddy bear between my arms.
I saw the light from mum and dads room
.
I felt the book from under my pillow.
I felt the cold icy water  beside me.


I wondered if all my dreams will come true.
I wondered if my toys have a party when I’m asleep.

Scratch

In class I have been learning about the points of the compass and directions.

This week I learnt about a programme called Scratch which uses directions to create a little computer program.

My job was to use Scratch to create something that could be shared with the rest of the class. What my Scratch was about was all down to me and my imagination! I had to be creative!

When I grow up...

As part of our topic I have been thinking about myself and what makes me special. This has led to me thinking about what I would like to be when I grow up.


I made a ToonDoo about it.

Swimming Sports

Swimming Sports is where the Year 4s, 5s and 6s at Havelock North Primary take part in swimming races in their houses. We then had to create a voki for homework about one of the races.


Our voki needed to tell the class about our favourite race at swimming sports and why we liked that one the best. We had to remember to hook our listener in and give the audience lots of interesting information.
