This morning we got to play a recorder but first Miss King had to clean our recorder before we got to play one. I chose my recorder from Miss King and the song we had to play was You Are My Sunshine. It sounded weird but I didn’t give up.
tThis week Room 13 made cool pictures about space. We drew and painted rockets and planets. We had to be careful, take our time and work hard. We learnt it was OK to make mistakes. To finish off we added glitter. We feel amazing about our pictures,
The Moon was probably made 4.5 billion years ago when a large object hit the Earth and blasted out rocks that came together to orbit round the Earth. The Moon is much smaller than the Earth. It is airless, waterless and lifeless. The gravity of the Moon, causes two high tides on the Earth every day.
The first person to walk on the Moon was the American astronaut, Neil Armstrong. He stepped out of his space craft, the Eagle, on 21 July 1969 and said these famous words, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”.
The sun is the largest star in our solar system. The earth is the right distance from the sun so our planet is not too hot or too cold. The light from the sun takes 8 minutes to reach earth and gives life to plants. Astronauts will never be able to land on the sun as it much too hot.
one day some pirates were guardiing their treasure on an Tsiand. Suddenly a soldier came in his blue boat. He was angry because the pirates had stolen his treausre. HE wanted it back. As rowed toward the island he saw a green crocodile. to get to the treasure The pirates. were ready to battle one of the pirates was holding a sword and a teleslope.
Deep in Lake Taupo lived a scary taniwha who ate people when it was dark. One day Tamarereti woke up he felt really hungry. Tamarereti went out fishing and caught lots of fish. He fell asleep and his waka drifted to the other side of Lake Taupo.
Tamarereti was hungry so he cooked his fish. It was dark and he was scared of the taniwha, but he had an idea. On the beach lay many shiny pebbles.
Tamarereti gathered as many pebbles as he could hold and set off in his waka. As he sailed back to his village, Tamarereti threw the shiny pebbles into the sky where they settled to become the stars of Matariki.
On the first day of term we made kites. Miss King gave us no instructions and we could only choose three materials. All of us had problems creating our kites. Some of us gave up and some of us made something. No ones kite flew. We have lots to learn before we can make a kite that will fly.
