In week six my reading group read a story called The Bullet. The story was about a boy who found a bullet in the gutter. The boy thought he was really cool because he had a bullet and he started to get into fights and stuff. Well I made a google slideshow that answers some question about the story.

A few weeks ago Te Ngahere were writing reports. We had to pick a country to write about. The country I picked was Ireland. I picked Ireland because Ireland interests me a lot. We had to write many reports about our country like sports, disasters, famous people, animals and lots more. When I was writing my report I was focusing on using commas, pronouns and parentheses. I managed to finish six reports but I choice to show you my first report I wrote.

Student LED Conferences

For Student LED Conferences on Wednesday we had to create a google drawing to show our parents when they came in to collect my report. This year we had to tell and show our parents what we were learning and why we were learning it. In our google drawing we had to include reading, writing, maths, art and inquiry. We had to also link our evidence that we can do it. I think my Mum really liked my google drawing.

Matariki Day

Last week on Thursday it was Paihia Primary Schools Matariki celebration day. There were a lot of fun activities that were planned for us. There were a couple of games and we were also able to plant trees. Everyone in the school had to bring a celebration food. When I mean celebration food I mean the food you would eat when you have a celebration. Then when it was lunch everyone would bring out their food. The juniors would go up first then the seniors. The food was perfect it was so delicious. I really enjoyed that  day.
