Ina's Bad Fall

On Friday I had a really bad fall off the Grey Lynn school steps. It was really painful so I had to go to the sick bay, but after that I had to go to Starship hospital.   It was really sore because I had to have an x-ray.  It was a little bet sore so after that so I got a treat from my mum. It was a little chocolate and it was really good but the doctor said I was not allowed chocolate because my leg was getting swollen so I had to get another  x-ray and this x-ray was hurting a lot more so my mum gave me a chip, but it was not nice becauseIi didn't like bbq chips. After that I went in to a really cool room to get on my cast. It was heavy so my mum had to hold my cast and then I had to hold it all by myself.  It was getting lighter so it was all finished. I got my crutches and I went back home.

We are also learning about our second school value, RESPONSIBILITY.

When we come to school in the morning, we can show how we are responsible by:

Getting my laptop ready to call the Roll. Andrea(teacher)

Putting down chairs and treating people how you want to be treated. Violet

Do focussed listening when we are at your table. By Romy

Do something quietly even when you're not told you. Like if the teacher needed a job done, you can do it for her. Kahma

Read a book at your desk or on a pillow. Jake

You can finish up your work. Joel

Respect !

Today we discussed the Grey Lynn School values. 
They are:
 Respect, Responsibility and Resilience. 

We used the Thinkers Keys to help us understand what respect is. We decided to use the Alphabet Key.

Enjoy our A-Z of how we show respect in the classroom. And, as Petra said, we used artistic license when it came to the letter, X.

Stay tuned to learn more about our values. Does your school have values? Share them with us !

Ina's holiday

We went into a spa and it was hot and when we got out and went in the big pool it was really cold so we went back out and ran really fast into the big pool and it was also cold so I went to the diving board. When I jumped into the pool it was cold and I still went into the pool but when I went in the pool it was not cold. It was nice and cool. So I got up went and saw James and he went on the big diving board. James did a bomb with Ben. It looked really big and cool. I did a bomb too and the people said it was big but I said it didn't go big it went... really big. After that I went onto the big one and I did a bomb. It went big. So big, Bigger than James' and Ben's bomb! The next day we went to the movies to watch Sione 2. It was really sad because Sione died. After that we went to the arcade game room then we went home.

Seeing blue penguins.

Up, up,up,up! Round and round.The camper van went up and around. Then we were at the top. When we were down at the bottom of the Otago Peninsula there was a seal right up on the rocks. But whew, what a smell! The little blue penguins didn't come in to about 9:30pm. But when they did there were around 150 of them!!!!When they came in they were like a little black wave. The first little blue penguin I saw was a baby.It had come out of it's mother.My favorite was when a little blue penguin came right past the rock I was standing on.What an a amazing trip!!

The Muppet Movie

In the holidays me my mum and brother went to The Muppets. We drove to the Northshore and found a park. We still had some time so we went to Freedom for a while. We went and got the tickets and then we went to the cinema. Finally it starred and it was so funny!
The end. Molly

swimming with room 13. It was really awesome .Ellah and Romy.room14


Canada is a cool place. It has bears and the best maple syrup.  It is also a beautiful place and I recommend going. It snows there too. Canada is a very cool place and you are lucky to live there. I love Canada and hope you do too.
