For tuck we are going to make smoothies and raspberry cookies. We went round every class seeing what everyone’s favorite fruit is. The most popular was strawberries. Then after the survey we went down to Mrs. Holyoake to see the amounts we need. Once we got all the ingredients we told Mrs. Clark and she bought all the ingredients away. Today we are going to make our smoothies for tuck we will be using strawberries, blueberry’s and bananas. The tuck is going to be free up in the fab lab.

My Endeavor Project

My Endeavor is making sculptures out of driftwood. Endeavor is a project you want to learn to do. You get to do Endeavor for four months and at the end of the four months you get to show what you have learnt to people some people get to sell things they made for there Endeavor.

My Endeavor is making lots of things out of driftwood. Driftwood is wood that has been bashed around in the sea for many years then washed up on the shore. I find most of my driftwood at Kilnaughton beach. How I made one of the fishes is I first gathered all the drift wood I need to build the fish. Then I use a hot glue gun to make a sculpture of a fish. Lastly I stick a pebble on the wood for a eye.

The people that helped me is my papa, my auntie Lynn and my Mum. My Papa taught me how to use tools I might need safely.  My auntie Lynn helped me to get a good layout for what I am making and what I should make. My Mum helped me use the hot glue gun and buy all the things I need. By Katie

OUTSIDE LEARNING:FIRE

We were doing outside learning and we were learning about fires. We went out to the playground to do it. The people that where teaching us were Dolton and Danny they are amazing at teaching us how to make fires with outdoor equipment. What we did first is we gathered dry grass and sticks in our groups. Then we learnt how to make a safe fire! When we did it is was very fun because it was a bit windy we got to have warm smores. Why we did this it is to teach us to learn how to make a fire with outdoor equipment safely.

Our Mesolithic Topic

My class did a Mesolithic topic and in out topic with an archaeologist called in ” Dr Darko “.

We learned lots and lots of facts. Some of those facts are ” We don’t have evidence of people in Mesolithic times because they would not leave anything around” and that” Mesolithic people would meet together to trade with other clans. We also learnt that there was a huge tsunami that nearly made Britain an Island

 

 

SHANARRI

We are learning about Shanarri in class because it is very important to know what we need and what other people need. All our class made a mini movie about shanarri we were all a bit of shanarri what we had to do was pick a section from shanarri i was safe so what we had to do was go outside and make a mini movie about safe then we would put all the videos together and make a movie about shanarri.

There was also people vandalizing our school so we had to send the Ileach writing about the vandalism. I am going to show you what shanarri.

Shanarri Stands For:

SAFE, HEALTHY, ACTIVE, NURTURED, ACHIEVING, RESPECTED, RESPONSIBLE, INCLUDED

Safe: You should have a safe house with a good shelter.

Healthy, you should be allowed to have fruit and vegetables daily.

Active, you should have the right to exercise and go out and play

Nurtured: you should have a right to have a loving family.

Achieving, You should have the right to

Respected, you have the right to be respected by your family, friends and anybody.

Responsible, you should have the right to be responsible and know what to do when you are injured.

Included, You should have the right to be included in party’s and so on.

 

We were leaning about shanarri. Shanarri is import because its child’s rights and the child’s rights is very important.

 

LIFE IN LOCK DOWN

Lock down was not the best but not the worst, what I mean is we couldn’t leave the house but that was alright because me and Kayla had our own ways to entertain ourselves with our families. Lock down stopped us from going to school which was not  the best but now we are glad to be back at school!

To start things off with some great news from lock down Kayla got a new puppy called Thora, who just happened to be Odin’s sister from another litter and he was really excited. I was really happy when lock down rules were eased I got to see Mya and Callie but before that we both were not happy because we couldn’t see friends. Kayla also got a new headset so she could talk with step brother Riley.  My cousin in Ireland got baby chicks too.

Then the bad news from lock down.  1 week in lock down my mum and dad were not too happy because Jess our dog is very old and she can not really get out side so she pooed all over the house. Kayla’s new dog Thora also learned to jump the out side fence so that was not good.  But overall we are glod to be back in school!
