A Fairy Tale
Mrs. Chicken and the Hungry Crocodile.
One morning, Mrs.Chicken took her bath in a puddle. “Cluck cluck,” she said proudly. “What a pretty chicken I am! Big bright eyes. Short, smooth beak. But I can’t see my wings. This puddle is too small.” She walked down to the river to get a better look. She didn’t know that Crocodile lay in the river all day long, waiting for her dinner. Mrs. Chicken leaned over the water. “Hmm” she said. “ I still can’t see my wings. I see scaly green legs. And a long mouth with sharp teeth. But where is my beak?” Crocodile lay still and waited. “Yum, yum,” she thought. “That’s my dinner”. He waited and said. So Mrs. Chicken took another step into the and then crocodile snapped her leg and ate her up and she was never seen again.

‘ I have a few announcement to make’, Mr Drake said, reading from the morning notices.‘ Our tuck shop lady, Mrs Peabody, fell down some stairs last night and was rushed to the hospital with a broken arm and leg. That means there will be no more hot soup or home baking for the next few months’. Room Fourteen groaned. We’ll make a get well card for her during art this afternoon’, Mr Drake said, glaring at everyone over the top of his glasses. ‘Since you are all concerned about her health and not about your own stomachs.’ Kenneth turned around and whispered to Mark. ‘ No hot soup and cake! They were the only decent things in the tuck shop. Everything else is greasy and soggy’.

It is amazing what happens in nature.
This week we checked our prior knowledge, you know, what I already have in my mind.
Our next step was to make some predictions about why a rock sinks , bone floats, why a ten ton ship doesn’t sink and a ten ton ship submarine does.
We tested a solid ball, spoons inside a bag, little rocks, a bead, clay, paper towel, a bark and a spoon.
I wondered what other mystery will we learn about in our science next week.
I am good at doing jobs for teachers.
I want to get better at doing my work more faster.
When I grow up I want to be a teacher.
My friends at school is Salome, Genevieve, Malia, Siniva, Lezabelle, Sione To’a, Szaskia, Desiree, Zheinya, Latanoa, Julia and Dawn.
My favourite subject at school is Spelling.
I would like my parents to help me at home.
Our parents can help us be what God has called us to be when they help us succeed.
My favourite scripture is Acts 28.

has been improved when interactive computer maths included in the lesson. We often use TUTPUP and MATH MAGICAN and i am getting good at it. On TUTPUP it is a maths game and it is kind of a fast game there’s maths, algebra, maths mix, times table. The maths is a decision of adding, subtracting, multiplication, divide.
After you have chose out of those three you choose what level like easy peasy, simple pimple, lickety split, okey dokey, uh oh, smarty pants,boffin box, area 51.Now let me explain to you about MATH MAGICAN. Now math magican is exactly the same as TUTPUP.

"Oh no we can't flyour kites outside now". On Monday it was a rainy day. People from Matariki came to teach us how to make KITES!!!!!!!. There was a lady who spoke to us her name was Elle. She said “she is from the Auckland Council and she takes care of preparing stuff like Matariki stuff.” The classes that were there were rooms 3, 4, 5, and 6.
After she asked what class were here, she showed us some flags. Some flags were as big as the house i live in and then she told us that when it is a special occasion, they make flags that are bigger than the hall. Next she showed us how to make a kite. Then she invited a room 3 girl to stand up so she had to fly the kite to the other side of the hall so Sammy ran and started it was flying when she was running. Elle told room 3 to stand up and hold hands in a circle and then sit down so she told the rest of the classes to do the same thing as well.
After that Genevieve and me had to give out the paper to the room 6 people and then two boys from room 6 gave out two sticks to each room 6 person. Next thing was that we had make our kites and decorate them. Following that we had to stand in a square and Elle had to call out a class to fly there kites across the room and we had to leave because it was only a hour session so they had to leave. They had to fly away.
So if you want to learn how to make it here are what you need and here is how you make it.
What you need:(Materials)
1. Piece of paper (shaped like a diamond).
2. One piece of strings.
3. Two sharp sticks.
Here are the steps(the method /process).
1. Flat the piece of paper in front of you.
2. Hold the two sticks in front of you and put them on the lines on your piece of paper to cover the black lines on the sides.
3. Now you need to place the end of one string on the diamond corner and the other on the other side of diamond corner.
4. After all those steps this is the final step the Matariki people come around and ask you if you want a knot on your finger or your wrist.
So there you have it and that was the end of our session.
BUT WE HAD A CHANCE TO FLY THEM AROUND THE HALL.

9.00 am On a Sunday morning I was so lazy I did not feel like getting up for church and getting ready. My mum said “get up” but I did not want to get up because my eyes were hurting. I did not want to wake up and open my eyes. My brother came in and saw me still lying down so he decided to play a trick on me so I would get up and get ready. He put some water in a bucket and tipped it on my head and said “WAKE UP!”. So I said “I am going tell mum you, pouring water on the chair and you poured it while I was still asleep, that is bad manners, you wet me”. Then he said “alright don`t tell on me”, But I did!!!!
