On Wednesday the 20th of September
Room 8 went to our buddy class Room 3.

Firstly, Room 8 were talking with Mrs
Fepulea'i about the expected
behaviours around young children.
After Mrs Fepulea’i and Room 8 were
talking about the expected behaviours she
told Room 8 that we had to
line up behind me or Manaia so we
can go to Room 3.

Secondly, when Room 8 got to Room 3
we had to sit on the mat and look at
a google slide show that Miss Gormlie
created about earthquakes. A few seconds
later  Room 5,8 and 3 had to go outside so
Mrs Fepulea’i can sort out the groups, after
Mrs Fepulea’i sorted out the
groups she said that we had to go to a lady
to get a paper and pen for our plan.

Thirdly, after we planned our unbreakable
earthquake house we had to record us saying
what items we are going to use and where we
are going to put the items. A few minutes
later Miss Gormlie and Mrs Fepulea’i gave
the groups a milk box each to create
our earthquake proof house.

Finally, When we finished creating our
earthquake proof house we had to tell Miss
Gormlie that we were finished so she can
see if our houses were earthquake proof.  
When Miss Gormly finished shaking our
house on a cardboard she told us to pack up
the class. I enjoyed this activity because I
wanted to spend time with my buddys in
Room 3.

In conclusion, creating an earthquake
proof house was very much fun!

Chatter box

Wow, we made a chatterbox.
On Tuesday the 4th of September
the students in Room 8 made a chatterbox.

Firstly, Mrs Bracey ripped
papers from magazine pages
and told the class to pass the
paper around. Then she told us
that we had to follow the instructions for
a cool activity called “chatterbox(fortune teller).

P2: A few seconds later we got
told to cut the paper with scissors
that got given to us, then we had
to fold the magazine from each corner
(4 corners),  than we had to
turn the paper around and repeat
what we did before. Seconds later
we had to fold the side that we did
and then walla a chatterbox was
made, but then I noticed that the chatterbox looked like a lion's claw.

Cross country

On a beautiful sunny day kids from
Tamaki primary and other schools went
to cross country at Bailey road school.
It was a tiering race, I ran 2 laps around
a big school. When the year 4,3, and 5 ran I
felt so nervous, but when it was year 6 girls
to run I felt confidence. When we were running
I got tired fast. It was really fun Bailey road school.

Magic snow

Magic snow
WALT: A science experiment with polymer to write a
recount from the experience.

Beautiful, magic snow! On the morning of Wednesday
29th of August Room 8 took part of a science experiment.

Firstly, Mrs Bracey was explaining to Room 8 about the
history of magic snow. The product is called polymer,
we can use polymer for science. Room 8 was listening
to Mrs Bracey while she was doing step by step on the experiment. People didn’t sell magic snow because
parents weren’t reading the instructions at the back
of the packet in whero( red).

Secondly, When my group got given the magic snow
packet we cut it with scissors. Then we put the magic
snow into a small plastic cup, we got given ½ of cold
water to put it into a plastic cup.

Finally, When we stirred the magic snow the polymer
rose up. I was very excited because I thought that real
magic with snow was going to actually happen. The magic
snow felt like a sponge.

In conclusion, When we made the magic snow I thought
that it would feel like frozen ice. I felt very excited
because I thought that I was going to turn out good.

Gas trap

WALT:Where do clouds come from?

During Room 8’s science experiment we
found out that when you go through a cloud it would
feel like water dripping down like the rain.  
Did you know that we did this gas trap experiment to study on clouds . Some people were telling other people that they
imagined being next to clouds. It was a mysterious and
imaginary science experiment. When we did this experiment
we found out that the vapour(Gas & liquid) evaporated
(Water rising up). I really enjoyed doing the science experiment.

Math strategy

WALT: Add and subtract decimals.

Adding decimals: 2.9+0.8=3.7

add 10 from 17 with the two, then add 2 and 1 together which makes 3 then add a point dot in the middle of 3 and 7 which is 3.7

Subtracting decimals:4.9-2.2=2.7
Take away 2 from 4 which makes 2, then take 2 away from 9 which makes 7, then put a point dot in the middle of 2 and 7 which is 2.7
