Athletics day

On Tuesday, Kauri and Puriri team had Athletics day.
We walked to Love lock track in Sandringham road. Love lock track is next  Weasly Community center.
We had high jump, long jump, shot put, discus and track events. For the track events there were 800 meters, 400 meters, 200 meters and 100 meters.
The girls did the track events first and the boys did the other activities.
First, the girls had to run the 800 meters. It's optional to run this round. 800 meters is twice around the track and it is very tiring.
After 800 meters, the girls did 100 meters. 100 meters isn't optional, you had to run it.
After that it was the 200 meters which is about 1/4 of the track.
Last of all there was 400 meters. Only year 6 got to do it and you choose whether to do it or not.

I came 1st in 800 meter and 400 meters. I also came 2nd in 200 meters.
When the girls  finished running the track, we switched so the boys were running in the track events and the girls were doing the other events.
The first activity the year 6 went to after the track events was long jump then shot put, high jump and discus.
I got 3rd in long jump and second in shot put.

Here are some pictures of Athletics day:

I really enjoyed Athletics day.
My favorite event was running 800 meters.

Roll a story

Hi guys, here's another 'Roll a story' that I made:

Character: Gem spitting dragon ๐Ÿ’Ž
Setting: Underwater castle ๐Ÿฐ
Problem: Raining ice-cream ๐Ÿจ

One sunny afternoon, in the Underwater castle, Diamond, a gem crying dragon, sat on a coral seat  and made herself make a diamond. She wondered if she could wish on her gems so she tried. 'I wish that it could rain ice-cream.' 
A wet thing hit Diamond on the head. "Ice-cream!" Cried Diamond and devoured it in one gulp.
Another two scoops of ice cream hit Diamond.
Shortly, the Underwater castle was filling with ice-cream.
"Stop!"Cried Diamond. "Stop, stop!! I wish that it would stop raining ice-cream." Shouted Diamond, and it stopped.
The ice-creams slowly melted and there was nothing on the floor of the Underwater castle.
'I will never wish for it to rain ice-cream again' 

That is my story
I hope you enjoyed it!

Roll a story

In Room 25, we have been learning how to write a narrative and what to include in a narrative.
Here is my story:

Character: A fire breathing dragon
Setting: In a dark forest
Problem: Ate a poisoned berry

As the moon sits high in the sky, an angry๐Ÿ˜  red, scaly, fire-breathing dragon stomps through the dark forest. Someone has stolen his prisoner that was locked in a tower.
He searches in the bushes and peeks in the river, but he can't find his prisoner or the thief. Exhausted, he leans against a tall pine tree and plucks a dark purple berry off a bush nearby.
The red dragon pops it into his mouth and starts to sway side to side. He then falls into a deep sleep with berry stain still all around his mouth. The dragon has eaten a poison berry. The berry will make the dragon sleep.
Luckily, the berry will only make the unlucky dragon sleep for an hour, so the dragon will not sleep for eternity.
An hour passes slowly and when the time is up, the dragon wakes up, rubbing his eyes with the back of his claws. He stands up wobbling on his scaly legs and looks around. He gives his shoulders a shrug and walks back to his cosy cave giving up the search.
At home, he snuggles into the arms of his mama and papa dragon.


Have you ever rolled a story?

We had to make a spacey(a shape made of lots of little squares) and then someone had to figure out how many squares there were.

Here is my spacey:

My Speech

In Owairaka School, Kauri team have been writing their own speech and presenting them to the teachers and entering the Kauri speech competition.
3 people in Room 25 went to Kauri speech competition, Mala, Elio and Cleo.
Here is my Speech:

Dogs are the best pet

Have you ever wondered if you would like some more company? Have you ever wanted a playmate? If you think you want a companion and a playmate, then I am certain that you should get a dog.

A dog is a companion. Companions are creatures that keep you company or be your best friend. When you need a friend, a dog can be an option. They can sense when you're upset. When you are upset, they will give you a big wet lick. This can make you laugh and instantly feel much better. Dogs are very friendly!

Dogs are loyal to their owners. When you return after a long time, dogs can feel overjoyed and excited to see you. A woof and a wag of a tail certainly means that they have missed you. They may sometimes jump onto you and lick you all over. Sometimes, they could be weeping tears of joy on the inside.

Did you know that dogs teach kids all about responsibility? Well it’s true. When kids help to walk, bathe and feed a dog, they are learning an important skill of taking care of another living creature. The same way of taking responsibility of a dog is training then. Training a dog will be training you and the dog. It teaches you how to look after your dog, and how they will want to be treated. You must be patient when training your dog. Dogs are intelligent animals so it won’t take long for a dog to be trained. Again, people learn to be responsible when taking care of a dog.

My last reason why dogs are the best pet is that they can give you protection. They can protect you from strangers, keep you away from danger and make you feel safe. Our friendly furry friends can also be Service Dogs. Service Dogs are dogs that help certain people. Service Dogs take care of their owner in many ways. For example, a guide dog. Guide dogs can help their owners to move around without anyone or anything injuring them. They can also help their owners by pressing the traffic light button, stopping at steps, turn corners if told to and even judge height and width so you do not bump your head or shoulder! Dogs can be very useful!

If you are a dog lover or just like dogs, and now love them even more, than I am certain that you should get a dog. Why? Because dogs are the best pets.

Endangered animals

In Owairaka School, we had an 'Endangered Animals week'. Everyone had to pick an Endangered animal and learn about it.
In Room 25, we made DLOs (Digital Learning Object) about it.

Here is my DLO:

I really enjoyed making this because I got to put a lot of links in and it's quite interesting how you can click on something and then it takes you somewhere else.
