Dragons are cool but sometimes fierce but they're not real unless it is a story.  Don't think of them as a enemy because they're not unless  you're a dragon. Not everyone has a dragon, even I don't because it is a lot to handle. Never have a pet dragon unless you're six years age and over. Oh! Now I can get one if I can afford it! which I probably can't. Now remember you have to believe in dragons.

Yesterday I was playing netball.  I played GD, WA, GS, GA.  I  got 1 goal  it was a half game. The score was 13 to 0 and we got 13 . I bent my finger back and it went click. I had tears in my eyes.  But I was OK. I was really mad when the another team got the ball. We were really proud of us. I am in the year 4 netball team for Grey Lynn school.

My Holiday Diary

In the school holidays we are going to Rarotonga.  We might even get our hair braided.  I am so excited. We are just going to stay there for three days. It is just two days until the holidays start, yay.

Actually we went to Cape Reinga not Rarotonga, that was just my imagination. 

It took us five hours to get to the place where we were staying. When we were there it was almost dinner time. After dinner we played spotlight for a while then we had marshmallows. We were very tired so we went to bed.

In the morning we went fishing trip and I think Zoe saw a shark. Sadly we did not catch anything. After that we watched Despicable Me Two. It was funny. 

The next day we went to the sand dunes. It was windy and I did not go boarding down the dune because I was scared of hurting my body.

After that we went to the ice cream shop. It made me feel happy because I love ice cream.  When we got home we had a hot shower then we watched a bit more of Despicable Me Two. 

We played Cluedo and after that we played Monopoly. I just got a house when we had to go to Paihia. We said bye to everybody. After three hours we were there and we met up with mum and my cousin Stella Grace at a restaurant. Mum gave us presents. I got a head scarf and Zoe got black nail polish with sparkles.

Then we went on a ferry to a wharf and we saw people jumping of the wharf with different things. Like paper wins with feathers stuck on them.

After the show we got on the ferry and went to the hotel and watched the Block.

So that is my story. Bye Diary!  Ava xxx.

My Holidays

In the holiday me and my family all went out to the movies. We all watched Cars three, the movie, then we all went back home. After we got back home my dad said, " hop up and come out with your sister and come with me and your brother. We can go back to the movies so we can watch Despicable Me Three. " By Mere

We had to change our idea at least five times.
We searched our question on Kid Rex. Our question was, "Why is Matariki the Maori New Year?" and found out out the answer.
We decided to do a slide show using google slides. 
Our finished project was looking really good !!!

Sofia and Poppy's Matariki Blog

In inquiry we have been lining  about Matarki. First we have  been thinking about some facts. Matarki  is the main star and the other
stars are her sisters. 

We had 2 questions:  they are,  how old is Matarki and  how do the stars shine brighter then all the  others>

There is a learning website called Kid Rex. Kid Rex sometimes  really helps you find answers for your work.

We created a padlet to show our learning. Click the link to see the padlet.

Olive's Poem on her gifts of being a friend.

Olive wrote a lyrical poem about what she has to offer as a friend. She even wrote a solution to the issue of trading special things in the classroom. 

What can you offer as a friend?

Do you know your worth?

Today Stella wrote a poem about what she has to offer someone...have a read and now, that if Stella is your friend, she offers many gifts that come from the heart. 

Sheldon Wants to be your friend!

Here is Sheldon's wonderful list of what he has to offer a friend. 

What can you offer a friend? 

Sheldon's List

What does Zaviour have to Offer?

Zaviour is able to be your friend? Did you know that? Here is what he has to offer you. Find him in the playground and have a play with him. 

Problem Solving in Room 10

Today we tried to solve one of the world's biggest problems!

Do you know what it is?


Something was up in Room 10. Some people were happy, some people were sad and some people had no idea what was going on...but Andrea knew, but she didn't tell us. She said we were going to have to figure it out and she would give us some inferring hints if needed. We were going to be detectives into human behaviour! 

We got into triads and talked with each other about the question. All of our answers are on the padlet. 
Made with Padlet

We eventually got to the problem in the world and especially Room 10. 

People were trading things in class in order for people to like them. 

Andrea said she could just make a rule - NO TRADING - which she kind of did, but that we also need to know OUR WORTH first. Our worth does not come from people wanting our stuff... our worth comes from what's inside each of us.  We have ore to offer each other and it cannot be found in any shop! 

Now we are all writing stories about...What can I offer? 
Torin said he can offer friendship and Ava said she can include people at morning tea and lunch. Amelia said she has kindness to offer. 

What do you have to offer? (P.S. It's not a smiggle rubber...)

Write what you have to offer in the comments below and together we can make the world (and Grey Lynn School) a better and happier place.

Love Room 10
