HI
Today we went down to the Town Hall to do this thing when they do the capping of the Argentina team. They had 3 welcomes, the Kings & Queens group, some dancing and more. At the very end we could get things signed I got 9 autographs in a green booklet. I got a tiny badge that the team was handing out to the people that were at the front that was cool, it is a puma, which is what their team is called, the Pumas. After that we went to the pet shop to look at the puppies they are soooo cute. We went to get some food to have at the park and we saw some people filming something I don't know what, but it wasn't anything big, it was just 4 people filming something. We went home and went on the computer, Skyped some friends, then I went on We are room 1 and updated my page. Here are some photos from the Town Hall.

Art!!!
Last week Room1 and Room 7 had an Assembly. Room 1 shared some flags that we drew ourselves. My one took a long time to do. But I think it is awesome.

flag.jpgI hope you like it
Flying The Flag
In reading Mr Kemp made each reading group read a book called Flying The Flag. It was trying to persuade people to change the New Zealand flag. In the book there was an activity for you to design the pattern and colours for your ideal NZ flag. I did a fern that is made out of Koru's because it represents the Maori culture and the fern is found in the bush in NZ. I did the Sothern Cross because we can see them in the night sky in New Zealand, a Kiwi because it is the native bird of New Zealand, and I did a Union Jack (but I did the colours the wrong way around!). These things stand for our history, the plants, the sky, the birds and animals and the green stands for the land.

Writing!!!!
We are learning to persuade someone to do something we might like them to do. For homework last week Mr Kemp asked us to try and persuade him to have a shared lunch. In writing we have a discoveries chart to write down the good things, the bad and the interesting things. What I have learnt:
*To have a strong start.
*Two different opinions.
*Have strong words.
*Make your side the best side to go with.
*Use persusive words (e.g. sharp, uncomforble, sore, unsafe and broken.)
*Use true facts (e.g. I have been cut many times from these chairs.)
*Have a good reading size.
*Don't make it go on and on, make it short and interesting.

WRITING
For writing we are learning how to write a explanation.So far we have learnt how to write:cause and effect e.g what causes a bike crash?
Cause:you used the brakes the wrong way.

Effect:you hurt yourself.
Also we know how to write Why and How.

MATHS

For maths we are learning fractions.

We have been learning about the Christchurch earthquake, below is the link to our wiki page about it. It is really sad that so many people passed away or were seriously hurt and the buildings were damaged, we are thinking of the people of Christchurch. We had a black and red day at school last Friday to raise money for Christchurch - red and black are the colours of Canterbury.

Beach Ed day: On Tuesday

Today, 22nd February we went to the beach to learn how to keep safe in the water. We learnt about rips and you always have to swim between the red and yellow flags. We had lots of fun and we were swimming in the water when the earthquake struck!

This week is Walk and Wheel week. I have walked, scootered or biked every day. I usually walk with Sandra, Liam, Riley and sometimes Mitchell. Can't forget Miki, Liam's dog!
