Making Biscuits

In class we made Anzac cookies.We had helpers to watch and help us.We had groups as well.In my group I had Jozier, Pace and Kiedis. Our helper was Tobias Kiedis's  dad.We started to make our cookies.When we were up to our third instruction it sort of felt like we were doing something wrong but  didn't know for sure.I still don't know which one was ours but even if our cookies were the worst ones I would still eat them.By Noah.

Delecious Anzac biscuits by Zoe

Yesterday we made Anzac biscuits in class. They were very delicious. 

We had some parent helpers to help us. 

First we had to pour 1/2 a cup plain flour into a  bowl. Next we added oats to the bowl with the the flour. Then we all got turns to mix.  

When a group of us was doing that, another group was melting the butter and filling a jug with hot water. Once the group heating the butter had finished, they poured some golden syrup into the melted butter.    

After they had done that, Lucy poured 1/4 of baking soda into a small bowl and added the hot water to it and mixed. Then a parent helper poured the melted butter into the big bowl and we all mixed together.  After we mixed the big bowl we put the the little bowls mixture into the big bowl. Then Cassius mixed it all together.

Finally we took big chunks of the mixture and rolled it, then placed it on a tray and then a parent helper put them in a oven and let them cook.   

After they had cooked, they smelled scrumptious!

Anzac Day

I think Anzac Day is a very sad day. Every time I think about Anzac Day I feel guilty.The reason I feel guilty  is because people helped me and I can't help them.My great grandfather went to war and got shot in the eye twice, luckily he  survived. I wish there was peace throughout  the world. By Noah

Anzac day

Anzac day is people who are remembering ancestors that went to war. People who went to war  had to sacrifice for you. If your uncles survived they're very lucky. Did you know that my great uncle went to war?  He lived. 
Anzac Day is special.

Sting the Bee

Once upon a time there was a bee, Her name was Sting. Everyone was scared of her just because of her name but she was a nice bee. One day a kid came and said, " Are you alone? Do you want me to play with you?" Sting felt very joyful! " Thanks you doe playing with me." said Sting. Once people saw the little girl playing with Sting, they thought that they shouldn't be scared of her anymore. By Emily

scared of snow. He  had  big  long  arms. He  had a big  brown  scarf.  There  were  sticks  on  the ground.  The  snow  was  falling  from  the  sky. It was  amazing buy not for the snowman. He would run and hide. He asked a friend if he could take him away from the snow and so he lived inside his friend's freezer and was happy.

Minecraft  is a cool game to play because you can play it on xbox computer, tablet and phone. You can play it on Survival mode or Creative mode. Creative mode is when you can create anything. In Survival mode you cannot fly.   You have to build a house in survival mode to live through the night because there are creepers who can come out a night.

Red Pandas

Red pandas are also  named fire foxes.  A red panda is not part of the panda family. They now have their own family name: the Ailuridae  Sometimes at the zoo I see red pandas coming up to the glass.  
Red pandas are very cute.  They love bamboo and they also like fruit.  Red pandas are my favourite animals and I love them very much.

The Garden

Last year all the Kowhai made a big garden where the old class was. First we dug up some holes to put the soil and the next day we put the soil in the holes.All of the Kowhai team got plants to put into     
The holes that have soil in them.The plants we did plant were...   Poppies and swan plants and some purple flowers for the bees. My favourite thing about it was when I got to have a great turn on putting the finishing touches on the garden .We worked hard on the garden that year. by Ruby.

Playing Club Rugby

Last Saturday I played rugby at New Lynn. I played against New Lynn Stags. For our warm up we did lunges, side swipes, bum kicks, a lap around the fieldpasses and passes with the rugby ball. When the game started I scored the first because Ricky of loaded the ball to me then got a runaway try. When New Lynn got their first try we got two more tries. At half time our coach Kevin told us to keep the tactics up. At full time the score was 9 to 5 to us! 
the End.

Horse Riding Camp

In the holidays me and Olive are going horse back riding together. We are doing a pony day and it will be really fun. At a pony day you plait and decorate your pony.You also do a couple of riding lessons through out the day. Me and Olive will have so much fun. I think I will ride Wings because I love her to infinity and back again. I think Olive will be riding Casper. The last time I went horse back riding there I rode with two other girls called Eliza and Chloe. Chloe was riding Casper and Eliza was riding Cheyenne.We did a three hour lesson. It was really fun. At the riding school when you do well you get a ribbon. It is cool. Right now I have three ribbons.This is Olives first horseback riding lesson.We are both super duper excited and can hardly wait to go horseback riding.Wings is a skewbald in her twenties but she acts like she is four. Cheyenne is a bay with no markings. Casper is a piebald in his twenties but acts like he is nine. I hope that on the way there or on the way back we get to stop at saddlery warehouse for a look.It is really cool there. I really like it there. the end.

The Whale Rider

                 THE   WHALE   RIDER

We read Whale Rider in class, It was an amazing and sensational of the best I had ever read. I really liked the parts when she rides the Whale, beats the boy in combat, when she found the whale tooth pendant and when Paikea threw his magical spears and turned them into the Animals and Plants of earth.I also like how it was written in parts.                                                                                                                                                                                                                       BY PACE
