Wave Pools

Wave pool


I was happy going to the wave pool. I had a partner. Is name was krishh. We sat together on the bus was starting and it was noisy and loud. We saw KFC and burger queen and we saw a sign that said no fart, no drinking, no eating, no lolly pop and no chewing gum. We saw India shop. When we arrived we went inside and we line up. We were quiet and we went inside and the teacher chose 3 group. We put on our life jackets. They were yellow and black and they are rough to touch. We learnt how to sit properly in the boat to puddle. Paddling was hard because the water was pushing our hand. “Bye, see, you later teacher.”After that we went to the Survival lesson . Where learnt how to do the starfish. Next we got the rubbish bag, we heid the rubbish bag tight and we jumped and Boom! It was so big and has so much air inside that it helped us to float. It was exciting because we learnt something new. After that we had a rescue lesson. I  had buddy krishh, so I was the rescuer and krishh was the person who was having trouble in the water. I had to get the rope and throw it to him. After that we went the deep water. We jumped so I was first to go and Splash! Splash! And we had 3 groups. My groups was Chay and Krishh. We held hands and make a circle and it was fun. After that we had free time. It was amazing because I went down the hydro slide three times. I slid down and I was a fast as a cheetah. After that we cleaned ourselves and got into new clothes we sat down and said goodbye then we went to the bus and went back to school.

tuis

P1
Did you know tui is my favorite bird? Tuis eat insects, seed and flax .Tuis fly over 10 km each day to a good source of nectar and fly up to 30 km in winter to find food but will eat fruit and insects too during breeding time.


P2
Tuis breed between September January. There is lots of singing and diving darting through the trees to attract a mate. Nests are built high up in the native trees. They lay between two and four eggs in their nests. When the chicks are first born the mum feeds them. When the are older dad’s help to feed them too.


P3
Tuis look black but actually they are blue, green and bronze. The Tuis have two curled white feather tufts on its throat . This is called (Poi). The chicks have a brown body and no throat tuft. The male tui is larger than the female Tui.


The Tui is a beautiful bird that is found all over NZ. All those it is not an in endangered bird there is still lot’s we can do to protect it. We can protect it by planting native trees, and leaving their nests alone, and by only taking our pet dogs in to parks where they allowed.

It is important to help protect the tui so that they don’t become endangered.

WALT: Television is a Great Invention

Television Is A Great Invention We think TV is a great invention. TV is good for your health and is very educational. It is also very entertaining! Our first reason why TV is a good invention is that it is good for your health. Watching TV is better than looking at the screen of a laptop or computer because it has a bigger screen and doesn’t harm your eyes as much. Watching TV from a far distance doesn’t give you headaches. If you watch TV from a close distance can cause eye-strain. Eye-strain can harm your eyes because it dries the moisture. Without moisture, your eyes will hurt. If you watch TV for a short time, (e.g) 1 or 2 hours you can also play outside after you have finished watching TV. Ashraf TV can also be educational. For example, National Geographic shows you about animals, countries and science. Did you know that some channels can teach adults? There are lots of other channels which teach life lessons and lots of facts. Children’s programmes tell you about numbers and words. Another example is Peppa pig which teaches you how to find solutions to problems. Krishh TV is entertaining because many shows are very humorous and interesting. They have interesting characters, settings and storylines. For example, The Big Bang Theory is the most popular comedy in America. Channels can have VERY funny characters that VERY weird actions for example Paw Patrol. So the real truth is TV is very entertaining. Akshay Overall we think TV is a brilliant invention. It has a big screen and is educational for everyone! TV is also very entertaining. So, there you have it, TV is great! Watch TV today! Class Comment - Well done boys! We like the way that you have clearly paragraphed your ideas. We like how you have stated your opinion in the introduction and in the conclusion. Next step: Add detail and research to some of your paragraphs and give examples of shows to back up your reasons. http://health.howstuffworks.com/human-body/systems/eye/tv-bad-for-eyes.htm We changed the information a little bit. http://www.salon.com/2014/11/15/people_actually_laugh_at_the_big_bang_theory/
