WALT: explain pollination, fertilisation and what makes popcorn pop


Have you ever played basketball before? Every Thursday we have basketball. It is cool because we learn how to play the game and skills like passing.

The skills I liked was shooting so that is beef. Beef stands for balance, eyes on target, elbow and follow throw. It is simple and I found out while playing you can only use 1 hand to throw. I like passing my favourite kind of passing was could pocket pass. You can do it on your left or right. When you do the pocket pass it has to be wear you pocket is and then throw. I also like overhead passing I like the passing because you use it when you throw it in.

When i arrived i was excited like a monkey finding his bananas. Basketball we only get to play the real game now. We do not learn skills any more. I like playing the real game cause every time I look at the hoop it's saying “shoot”. All the time when we played the team cheered for us saying “go go” or “shoot”.

The thing I like about basketball is that we learn different skills. It is a fun sport and it is kind of challenge for me. I also like our coaches that teach us, their names a Mallike and Yaran.

Where did it all begin?

In the beginning there was nothing. Darkness.There was a switch and a tinny curl that appearer. That is how the word began. We are learning to make inferences when we read a text This is how the word started.
We are learning to make inferences when we read a text.
This is how the world started.

winter is here

Did you know winter started on the queen's birthday here in Auckland? Winter is a season that is cold and foggy. It is like your in Antarctica. when it’s winter it is rainy and stormy sometimes. Mostly it’s cold and sometimes it is warm. If you go out side it is always cold and the grass is frosty. Your fingers and toes will be so numb.

The blindfold game

Have you ever played the blindfold game before? Today our literacy class did it. It was so challenging. The things you need are some blindfolds, some bowls, raw rice, a timer and safety pins.

You have to put the raw rice and safely pins into the bowls. Then you put on the blindfolds and get the timer ready for 1 minute. When it is ready you start it. Then you feel for the safety pins. As soon as the timer goes off you count how many safety pins you have. Then whoever has the most wins.

When we played it was so cool. It was cool because all of us had fun and it was so challenging for us. It is a hard game and all of us enjoyed the game because it was fun and loud that how you could tell we enjoyed it. when I was playing it was funny and I only got 1 and the safety pins felt like the rice. The people that got most Flynlay and Andrew.  

My favorite part is that when flynlay cheated and grabbed the rice and saftey pins in his hands and just put it down. Also I liked how everyone tried.
