Today I entered three things into our Pet Day Competition they were a Scarecrow and a Soft Toy and a Vaseline Saucer.
I have included photos of the things that I entered and I loved having Pet Day at our school it was lot's of fun and I got to see all sorts of different animals too.
I won First place for my Scarecrow and I got a Highly Commended for my soft Toy.
This week I have been working on Algebra for maths and we were doing Patterns. I have a photo showing all of the patterns that I made. The next day we were having a go at making Sequential Patterns and I have a photo showing what I made here too. I had lot's of fun with the hands on maths.
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.
We had Dr Suess Day this week where we could wear something weird and wacky or a costume and we went on a parade around the community to show ourselves off.
After that we went into groups and did activities.
Here are some photos of what we did on the day, we made a Dr Suess Street Sign for the library.
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.
