Cricket

This week we had visitors come to our school from Whangarei Cricket to teach us how to play the game.
When we had showed them that we could hit the ball properly we then played a game of speed cricket.
We learned how to hold the bat properly and how to stand in front of the wickets, when we hit the ball we had to run as fast as we can back to the others in the line and pass the bat to them so that they could have a go.
Here are some photos of me playing. I had an awesome time.

School Assembly

Last Friday was our school assembly.
I was asked about what I learned in our "Talk to Learn" programme, I used  my I pad to say that "I learned that caring for others helps me to make friends".

I was excited to be part of the whole school assembly and felt really proud of myself.

Solar System

This week we were having a discussion on the Solar System and the planets.

I made a really cool headband out of all of the planets.

I had lots of fun colouring in the planets and sticking them onto my headband.

Science

This week we had a go at making Paper Helicopters.
We cut out our paper shapes of the helicopters and we bent down the two top pieces to make the rotor blades of a helicopter.
These are pictures of our group flying our helicopters.
We found out that both helicopters operated pretty much the same as one did not spin faster than the other and they both fell to the ground at about the same speed.
We loved watching these to see what would happen and we had lot's of fun doing it.
