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.

There are the flamango, crab cake ,tacodile, and loads more and there is a movie that is coming out and I really think who ever is reading this should see it.

Christmas at my house.

Today I am very happy because when I get home I am going to make some Christmas  decorations
and Ruth is going to get help from her sister and she will make a advent calander for her dad to fill. Ruth will also get a chocolate advent calendar. 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.
