We are a class of 20, we love art, pe, writing and maths. We think our teacher Mrs Andrews is the best teacher ever. Our class is the best because we do fun things like art and jump jam. We are sensible and everyone gets along. Our website monitors are Ayla Rowe and Teigan Nolan.

These past few days we have been learning how to make these things called spinners. You can make them by cutting a circle out of cardboard then you make a whole in the centre of the circle. Once that is done you slide some string in the hole. Then you decorate the circle you want then it is done. They remind us of fidget spinners, but they are not the same. Even though they work similar to the fidget spinners. We also got Constable Maree again she is so nice. She has been talking to us about if your mum and dad don't tell you to go home with someone else you don't and if someone tells you that, you tell your parent when you get home. Then she talked to us about where we feel comfortable being touched. And if you don't then you say "Stop it. I don't like it."
We have been doing a lot of art work this week. One or these things was when we were doing tiki art. What we did was cut out a real cool pattern then we coloured them in and Mrs Andrew hung them up.

Thank you Constable Maree you are the best. This week we have been talking to constable Maree about whether you should go with someone when they say to, but the answer is NO!!! She told us to never go in another persons car if your parents have not said you should. We got a couple of pictures to colour in for that and loads of safety tips about strangers. It was really fun! Today we get to make butterflies the reason behind this is because we have been learning about colors, talking about colors. Our awesome teacher said that we are going to use the seamonkey's tank to put dyes in it to make it colorful. But just to let you know there are no sea monkeys in the tank, because sadly the seamonkeys have died. In math we have been having to color in halves and quarters this is because our new topic is fractions so we will be doing loads of fraction things. Yesterday we did a spelling test, the brainy class dont need to worry because we are so smart. Did you know that some of us in the weekend played Opotiki for hockey and we won but the best news we were in the newspaper. After the holidays we are going to go for a school trip to fly the kites. We are making this is to celebrate matariki.
We have a new boy in our class named Mason. He is a cool person to have in our room. Next week we are saying goodbye to Georgia because she is moving away from Awakeri to the Hawkes Bay. We will all miss her but we hope she will have fun at her new school and make heaps of new friends! In class we read a book called Nanny And The Rainbow which taught us all about the colours. Next we did an overnight test by putting primary paint colours in cups. Then we put a special type of paper with each end in the cup full of paint, and an empty cup. When we came back the next morning all the paint had walked from one cup to the other! How cool is that? We have changed our fitness to ball skills with a little bit of hoola-hooping. It's so much fun! Another thing for reading is we read a book at school then we each get a copy to take home and read to our caregivers! We keep working in our smartwords book. We will soon finish it and move onto the next level. Yay!!
13 June In the past few days we have been making peace flags, the reason we have been making flags is because we were learning about how peace means kindness and sharing. We watched a video with funny creatures in that all made friends in the end, Mrs. Andrews told us that if we do a great job of the flags they will be going in the Whakatane library. We also have been making cows the reason for this is because we read the story ' The Cow That Jumped Over The Moon.' We then made a circle than with that we painted it a blue and white colour than we got the cows and stuck them on the very top of the moon. On Tuesdays we got to go on the space net it was the funniest in our opinion we thought it was better than the wooden tower.We managed to climb all the way up to the top which was soo exciting! We have been buddy reading with room 12 it has been so FUN! Our first time we did it we got a partner since then we have had the same partner unless they were sick, we have been doing it with them for at least 5 days a week. We are all friends with our new parnters now! Whaea Andrea has been teaching us all these types of fruits we now know apple banana and pear. Also we have been doing our pepeha we can nearly remember it of by heart.

These past few days we have been writing stories and we have been trying to use where, what, when, how and it has been so fun! When we used the how, what etc we based it on the weekends. most of us went to the hot pools so we all wrote about that. We have had constable Maree who talked all about the human body. It was really interesting, we learnt way more body parts and then we got a couple of sheets to colour in. We also got to watch a really cool video about bullies. We all have agreed that we will never bully each other and we will never break the promise. On our sticker chart we have a couple of people that has managed to get there. They were so excited they actually screamed. The bad thing was that we had to wait to get to eat it.

Today we have been making bunnies. It was the funniest things to make, we made cute bunny ears to go on the front and a big bushy tail to go on the other side of the basket. Our teacher said we were allowed to put whatever we want to in it. Then we wrote some stories on how to make them. Check them out below! We also made some monsters but we haven't finished them yet so we are going to keep them as a surprise next week. We have had 4 kids from room 2 move into room 3. Our new friends are happy and we are all getting along. Their names are.. Innes, Jack, Georgia, Nihal.
We are all bringing home books to read to our parents. Now we are working hard on making Pig The Pug poems. It is based on a story we read about Pig who is a dog. All the sea monkeys have died, R.I.P little buddies! Next week we will be getting more so now we will have to look after them as much as we did with the older ones.
We have been EXTRA GOOD!!!!!! this week the reason behind this is because our teacher has set this chart up so whenever you are being good she gets a sticker and puts it on your chart and when you fill the chart which is 25 boxes we get a lolly. The teacher has bought another packet because we are being extra good!!!

Yay! We are back at school for a jam packed term of learning! So far we have been learning about safety one of the type of safeties was about safety on the farm like dogs. Another safety project we are learning about is learning our home address and phone numbers off by heart. We are finishing our Easter baskets by making them out of paper and colouring them beautiful. We have also been to see Harold and he taught us about our body parts. We have stories about our holidays, check them out below!

We have been learning all about cows, it was very interesting. All of room three was allowed to make 3D cows, we used paper to make them. Once we have finished that task we are going to make a moon, the reason for this is because we also read the book..
The Cow jumped over the moon.
We all have been writing about the terrible flood. If you want to know all about the flood scroll down to Students Work and take a look. We are very thankful because pretty much none of our houses flooded. Last week some people from room 2 moved into room 3 and they are doing awesome! R.I.P little sea monkeys. Some our sea monkeys have died of old age. At least they lived a happy life! Some of them are still alive but are getting old.
We wrote about the safety gear you need on a boat and we found out you need to take a lot of things! Don't forget your life jackets! We made sunflowers with our faces in the middle. We used crayons and paint to make our flowers are beautiful. one of our sea monkeys is fully grown and is the biggest one, our teacher has been cleaning their tank weekly and it has no a single spec of dirt. We also have made some monsters they have got fangs and some are purple and some are red.
We also got a visit from Room 2 they came and we all did some masks together. We cut them out we didn't have to make designs because they were already printed for us. Then we all got a piece of paper were we used that for the back to keep it on. We then stapled it on with the help of Mrs Andrews, and then we made the eye holes. IT WAS THE BEST!!!
Mrs Andrew has bought us some sea monkeys for us to learn about. We have to use a magnifying glass so we can see them, we have discovered that they have less than half a centimeter of tail. We all get a turn of looking at them. They are adorable. We have these seamonkeys because of the book we read and because of that we have studied them. Happy birthday to Cory who turned six at school yesterday! We all got lollies to celebrate his birthday. We all had so much fun!!! We got to do P.E today and we did skipping, going under a net,doing some hopscotch and gutterboarding.
We have been making fish and jelly fish. We had to colour them and cut them out. We went to the pool and have been using flutterboards to get across to the other end. It was fun and cold. Mrs Andrews has been throwing toys in for us to get as a game. We also have been writting about jelly fish and a fireman saving a cat stuck in a fire. Down below in Students' Work are some of the stories.

We have been making tikis. We have done this by colouring this tiki art from Mrs Andrew. She gave also all the things to do in little groups then we dyed them green and blue. We also got these pictures of a goose and had to colour them in it took a long time as we were working very hard to colour in the lines and make it tidy. We got our prime math books today. We all sat patiently on the mat while our teacher named all of them very tidily. They were all clean and brand new. I could smell the brand new books! We also did a spelling test. It was a very long one we all had been practising for a couple of days now.
First we got a paperplate and we folded it. Then we got a piece of card and we drew a shape of a bunny and cut it out and coloured it in.
First we got a paperplate then we put the ears on the bunny.Next we had to get an eigth piece of pink paper to scrunch up for the nose.
First we got a paperplate then we halved it.Next we cuted out ears for our bunny basket. After that,we stapled the handle on it then we scrunched up a piece of pink paper for the nose.
On the Weekened we went to Nans. We went to the gardens.

There was a flood in my house. But it was not that big, the rain was raining for days. The rain flooded my paddock I am happy because the plants can grow and I can splash in the puddles.
On Wednesday Inne's home had water around his whole house because of the rain. So Inne's family came to my family's house. Until Sunday when they went to Gisborne. They got out in a digger bucket. If they didn't get out that way they would have got wet. My daddy was at the flood yesterday. Daddy came home at half past four in the morning. Dad had flood videos on his phone. They were cool videos. Inne's dog was called Balae. Balae has three legs. Balae is a good girl.
