William's Quick Write

                      A moment as the Gingerbread Man
Excitement flowed through veins because I could run away from the nasty people. I felt nothing! Green bush surrounded me. As I climbed on the fox’s tail I heard his tummy rumble as if he was going to eat me. I saw half my body then “Ooooowwwww”.

Rubbish Art by Room 14

Look at all the rubbish we picked up at Onerahi beach. We learned how important it is to dispose of our rubbish carefully. Also to ensure that no rubbish goes down the stormwater drains because that all goes out to sea.

Narrative writing-Yasith

We have been using lots of interesting adjectives and verbs in out writing. Here is my story: Neptune's Kingdom In a underwater castle there lived a king called Neptune.Neptune was the king of the s sea.He had a golden spear which contained magical powers. One day Neptune spotted four divers coming towards him. He became fearful and stepped back because he saw a gun.He found out the leader was brave because he stepped in and drank some water.He found out that the second one was adventures because he carried two big grappling hooks.He also found out that the third one was foolish because he was trying to steal the treasure. Poor Flipper, Neptune's mermaid daughter was hiding in the deepest darkest room where she thought she'd be safe.But she wasn't .... Whoosh!Kaboom!went a door then out of the dark came a diver with a dagger.The diver sped to her with his dagger in his hand... But instead of killing Flipper he swam up."I found the treasure,"shouted the diver. Then out of nowhere aall four divers were reunited again.They quickly grabbed the treasure and swam away. But Flipper was quicker she swam up and alarmed her father Neptune.So Neptune called all the sharks in the sea. "Follow the divers," cried Neptune. "Bring them back," shouted Neptune. "Ok," grinned the sharks. Whish! the sharks went. "I brought them back ," grinned the sharks. "Curse be on the divers," cried Neptune. So thats it.The divers were never heard again. Neptune is still down there enjoying himself and Flipper got married to a handsome merman called Lock. By:Yasith

Week 3 citizen

Congratulation Kobi- this weeks citizen

Yr 4 Narrative winner

Year 4 Dallas Horgan The Sewer On a nice and sunny day four children were playing with a ball. Then Max slipped and the ball fell in the sewers. The children formed a ladder to reach the ball but fell down into slimy smelly sewers. They started to look around for a way out. But there was no way out. So they kept looking around until Max and Ben saw something green drifting in the smelly water. As it got closer it was making grunting and grumbling noises. So Max, Fred, Ben and Sapphire ran to the brightest part of the sewer. The green thing followed them. Then all of a sudden there was a massive drop. They were trapped! Sapphire yelled, “Jump!” Then Max answered “Are you crazy?” But they had to jump! Ahhhh! Splash! Now they were saturated! Up above there were tonnes of red eyes gleaming at them. “Uh-oh! Bats everywhere, fluttering around our heads!” they screamed. “Run!” yelled Ben. “Look there’s a way out! Run towards the light,” said Max. “Look there’s the ball.” “Ahhh, I can’t see with these bats in my face!” yelled Fred. Ben saw the green thing again. “That green thing is an alligator!” said Fred. “I’ve got an idea” yelled Sapphire, “Jump on the alligator! Run across its back until you can grab a bat. Hold on tight to the bat and head towards the light! Now let’s get out of here!” “Yay we’re out! But it’s a shame we didn’t get the ball” said Fred. “But we did get it.” said Sapphire. “Yay” said Max, Ben and Fred. “Let’s play catch”.

I remember walking through the bush,native Kowhai trees shading the sunlight above my head,the faint sound the waterfall dripping. Towering trees bending,face down,small leaves lying helplessly on the path. The sun shining through the leaves,people stamping on the fallen branches. Looking and finding unusual beetles,caterpillars. The feel of leaves was soft like silk,the scent of the air was refreshing. Lovely colours shone as blue beetles scurried. I could hear the waterfall falling quietly,as if it was calling me. By:Yasith

Walking through the Bush- Dallas

I can remember walking in the bush seeing trees blocking up the sun. Fantails calling me with their faint noises. as I walk over sticks they snap and crack. As I walk through the bush I look for silver ferns. As I walk through the bush it feels like cold, windy air. By Dallas

Tom's Bike

It's a tiger, fast and strong, With blue fire bursting out it's back, Sort of bike. It's shimmering and stripy, Smooth but ninety, Sort of bike. Zooming down the railway, Late at night, That's my sort of bike.

Cody's Bike

It's a mongoose, big, red and white, With an eagle up front, Sort of bike. Reflecting from the sun when I ride it Tick, tick it goes, Rampaging down late at night, And it glows through the dark, That's my sort of bike.

William's Bike

It's a race car, big and red, With fire bursting out the back, Sort of bike. It's fast and shiny, Smooth but whiny, Sort of bike. Zooming down the race track, Early in the morning, That's my sort of bike.

The Fun Run Butterflies raced in my tummy as I stood on the start line. Today is the FUN RUN- I’m racing now! Toot! The race has started. I sprint and sprint. I finally pass the finish. I came 11th. If I’d only passed one person I’d be in the Barge Park team. I was happy to get that juicy ice block. The Fun Run was some race!

Geometery shapes with marshmallows

We used marshmallows and tooth picks to make 3D shapes. Some 3D shapes we made were cube, triangular prism, diamonds and hexagons. We could make a cylinder because we had no round tops. At the end we ate some of our marshmallows.

The Field of Remembrance

Yesterday we walked to the field of remembrance. Ranger brought a picture of his great uncle who died during the war. He took it to one of the ladies and she put it on one of the crosses. There were 492 crosses. All of these crosses represented all the people who died at war from Whangarei. Mrs Walker told us that they crosses are out for 30 days and each day represents 1000 people that died in the war from New Zealand.

Cody's great grand-dad

I liked it when Cody's dad came in and told us about when Cody's great-grandad was in the Army. He was too old to serve so worked for the army transporting army supplies.
When a person dies in the army their family get a death penny.

Ice Experiment

Room 14 had fun finding out what happened when a large block of ice was put in a large bucket of water. We were surprised that it floated so low in the water. We were looking at cause and effect. We found that the smaller the ice got the colder the water became. Soon it all melted.
