Octagonal prisms

Hello fellow people,
Me and Ruby were walking along and finally we found what we were looking for,an Octagonal prism! It looked a bit like a bolt with no screw. Do you know what an octagonal prism is? Well I can tell you that the one we found had 16 sides! They are also 3-dimensional that means they are solid. They are  in a group called polygons (po-le-gon). We found this on the flying fox  platform. By Ruby and Noah.

Our Pets

Today at lunch time we drew pictures of animals. Ruby's pet was a fish and she called it Bluebell. Kassidy's pets was a hamster and a guinea pig. The hamster was called Cutie-Pie and the guinea pig was called Mr Cuddles. This is a picture of our pets:

The cylinder trunk from the tree

On Monday the second of December we paired up to go find 3D shapes. Boys had to pair up with girls and girls had to pair up with boys. When we paired up we went outside with an iPad. All the pairs went outside and tried to find 3D shapes and we only had ten minutes. We found a sphere, cube, cylinder, and cone. Our favourite shape was the cylinder the trees trunk. It look like a cylinder because it was long and had a circle at the top and bottom and it was a long circle. But then it was time we went back to class and shared a shape. It was cool finding shapes.

Christmas at my house.

Today I am very happy because when I get home I am going to make some Christmas  decorations

On the day of Christmas she will go to her sisters room and she will open one of her presents and show her present to her Mum and Dad. Then she will open all of her presents in the stocking . She is going to Patawa so she will get lots of presents on Christmas Day. Today I am very excited because after school me ,my Mum and sister are going to make a Christmas Tree. We're going to Plant Barn to get long pieces of wood. Then we will try to find strong string to tie the wood together. Then we will put Christmasy things on it.

Shapes and Geomertry

This is the sun and we took a picture of it because we thought it looked like cylinder. We also took pictures of other things that are 3D. They are: Tree trunk that's a cylinder,slide(that's a cylinder again. we mostly took pictures of cylinders) But the picture of the sun is a sphere. It was really fun taking pictures of 3D shapes.

The best day ever!

On Sunday the 24 of November 2013 it was the best day ever because me,my sister, mum and dad set out the paddling pool for me and Anya, my sister. Then we put some chairs and some benches out.
Next we got some towls out and put on our togs.  When we got in it was freezing. I had to jump in. Then it started to get warm and I had to go and get some ice and suck on it. When I got really cold I came out and got my sunglasses. I took one of the towels and put it on the grass. Then I sat down and started to read.By Aiko

I can't wait until Christmas. It's my favourite time of year apart from Easter and my birthday. Last Christmas Me and Tess got a trampoline.Santa air landed on it. This year I want to get a new spa. I think everyone in my family wants a new one. I also want quit a lot of pig stuff. Two more are a Furby and another smiggle gift card. I also want rolly sunblock which might sound weird but I like it and it's also good for summer and Christmas is in sun. I would like a pair of Heelys.

A poem

I am a shooting star shooting across the sky looking down at the houses as I go by .
I'm waiting until someone wishes on me. 
I can see the moon when I go past. 
The Sun is very hot when I go past.

Erin Hunter

My favourite author is Erin Hunter. She writes Warriors and Seekers books.The reason she's my favourite author is because the Warriors books are about warrior cats who fight other clans and my favourite animal is a cat so I immediately know what it's about when I start reading a new Warriors book. If you like aventures then you should read the Warriors and Seekers books by Erin Hunter.

Here is the website you can go on to see more books.

The little butterfly poem

I'm a little butterfly.
See me flap my wings.
I'm so beautiful I could just be a model.
If I had a bow in my hair and a dress I would be the beauty Queen.
With make up I would look like a Barbie doll.
My wings are pink and black.
By Kassidy and Ellie

Here is a link if you want to read about butterflies.

Staying in a motel

I'm staying in a motel.  At the start I didn't want to stay there but then my mum said there was a  pool and spa I got a little excited.  When I got there I wanted to  go  for  a swim but the pool and spa were inside but I didn't  care.  That night after dinner I read and went straight to sleep.
By Cherry
