This morning we planted some carrot seeds in little pots that we decorated. We are hoping they will grow into delicious carrots!

Today we made paper helicopters to use as inspiration for writing. There were several steps to go through to make them but the best part was the test flight! We had to find a high place so went to the platform on the senior playground. Our helicopters were a great success as we watched them twirling down to the ground.

Our River Walk

Our River Walk

On Friday the 5th of June the Middle Syndicate walked along the Waikato River to look at some of the bridges. Room 7 and Room 11 caught the bus at 9:45. There was a buzz of excitement as we set off. When we arrived we all walked down to have a look at an old boat. It was all rusty and had huge holes in it. We got to view the bridges from a distance as well as underneath. It was really interesting to see the different ways each bridge was made. The walk was long and tiring but it was so much fun to be out in the sun with our friends! We were all relieved to arrive back at school and can now continue learning about the different types of bridges ready to construct some of our own.

On Monday we had a netball skills training with Jennifer from Sports Waikato. We learnt how to do chest passes and bounce passes. After we practised these skills we got to use them while playing a game. To play the game we had to pass the ball to the members of our team and shoot it in the hoop at the end of the court. Everyone had a great time learning these skills and spending the afternoon out in the sun.

Awesome Adjectives on PhotoPeach

Our Weekly Round-up
Our learning in week 8 has been amazing, fantastic, hard work, awesome, lovely, long, excellent, wonderful, cool, brilliant and yummy.
We have been doing lots of learning. As you can see our word work has been around using Adjectives. Adjectives are describing words that make your story interesting. We used adjectives on making a poem about Hot Air Balloons. This week we also got to make popcorn in writing. The best part of making popcorn was that we all got to eat it!
In maths we have been making Probability games. The games have to be fair by giving each player equal chance to win.
To make name art this week we first had to write our name in block letters. We had to colour them in deeply to make them stand out.
It has been an awesome week. We’re very tired and are looking forward to the holidays in a weeks time!

E.O.T.C Week

In week 5 it was E.O.T.C week. So the middle school went on the Pirongia Bush walk and to make it even better we camped at school over night. It was an amazing camp and we all had a great time. Check out some of our photo's to see what fun we had.

Playing spotlight before bed.

We ate yummy food!
