Yesterday was our last day of swimming and group 3 (my group) went to the big pools. It was very difficult and deep but I managed to get from one side to the other and back. After that we went back to the little pools because lots of people were struggling. After we played whirl pool which is when we all hold hands (including the coaches) and we spun around then when the coaches said to let go we spun slowly in the way we were running in. It was a lot of fun, we also played octopus, but it was harder because we were in water and it was hard to run and swim really really fast. That was the last day of swimming.

Athletics (Water Relays)

On Thursday I learned how to play water relays.  You have to pick up the cup from the outside of the bucket and run to take water from the other bucket then go to the end of the line.  Now you have to give the cup to the person in front of you and when it gets to the first person in line then the person tips the water in the bucket in front of them then run and do it all over again.  I loved this game because everyone gets a turn to hold the cup and you can sometimes tip the water on someone else and it is very funny because you have to put the cup over and under, it was really wet.

I hope you have fun if you have this next year (for the juniors)

Quick Reflection

I have been learning about Hydro power because it is a type of renewable energy and we (humans) can use it so we can have a safe life instead of having to use fossil fuels and harm the environment.

Google Expeditions

Yesterday was google expeditions and we had so much fun. Google expeditions is when there is a box and inside is a smartphone, the smartphone is inside and tight. There are two lenses and when we put our eyes through the end and it puts the image together and it looks like a real image. The teacher can control all of the smartphones and she can pause the images and she can add any scene we or she wants. There is also a white arrow and you have to follow it until you see a white circle. Then the teacher talks about thee image that is inside the circle. My favorite scene was the cliffs because it looks real and you feel like you are going to fall. A very big thanks to Maru for letting us use all of the kits so we can look at different parts of the country. We had so much fun and one more thank for letting our class have a chance.

Swimming again for Week 5

Kia Ora everyone,

Today was my second swimming lesson and my coach taught me a new skill. I had to dip my face n the waqter and then I have to circle my arms and also I had to kick my feet so I could move. Did you know that first I was in the middle group then I was the best in my group that I moved to the advanced group. If you are a junior and you sign up for swimming, I hope you go in the high group.

Did you know that a kenning is usually a 2 word phrase, but it describes another word. Yesterday we read some kennings and then we made a video of a kenning that the teacher told us to act. Here is a video of my group acting out the kenning, BIRD CREATOR. 
I hope you give me some feedback so I can make my work better.

Check Out My Learning

Today I have been learning to write number sentences.

One thing I found tricky was what word to use in the number sentence to make it interesting to find out the answer.

It would be great if you could comment on my post and give me some feedback to make my learning better.

Have a Go Sports Day

Today was Have a Go Sports Day, Have a Go Sports Day is about year 3 and 4 all have a go for sports and exercise. My favorite activity was gymnastics because you got to go on a big trampoline, a swing on bars, walk on a balancing beam, we jumped in a pit of powdery foam and did some stretching. It was a lot of fun. When you are year 3 or 4 next year, or in the next few years, you might get to go to Sports Day! You will get to do, Softball, Get set go, Hockey, Cricket, and Gymnastics. When you go, I hope you enjoy!

OREO Paragraph

Hello everyone,
This is my OREO paragraph that I have been working on from the 20th to the 21st. If you are wondering what OREO means, it stand for opinion, reason, example, and restating your opinion. I wrote this paragraph because I want to persuade the reader that my idea is the best in the world.

I strongly believe that the penguin is the most amazing creature in the world. I believe this is true because they can stay in snow and walk on the shiny, slippery glaciers, and they can countershade in the freezing water because they are so clever. For example, when they are next to their predator, their dark side of them match the dark water and the light side of the Penguin matches the light water. This means countershade, they do this to keep out of sight of danger.

Therefore I believe the Penguin is the most incredible and marvelous creature in the world.
