The Moon

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

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.

Tamarereti Animation

We have been learning the story of Tamarereti. Here is my animation I made with Hyperstudio.

Beside Lake Taupo was a village. In the lake there lived a scary Taniwha who would eat people when it was dark. There were no stars in the sky at night - which made night time very dangerous.

One day Tamarereti went fishing in his waka and he was blown by the wind to the other side of the lake.
After a long sleep, the sky was dark. Tamarereti was afraid of the Taniwha - but he had an idea.
On the beach lay many shiny pebbles. He gathered the pebbles. Tamarereti threw the pebbles into the night sky where they became stars.

Now the sky was too bright for the Taniwha and he stayed hidden.

Tamarereti made it safely home again.

Puddles





One rainy Friday afternoon 12 small boys had the best time of their life. After many days of rain, giant puddles sat out on the field. Giant puddles that were perfect for swimming.

I quickly raced to put on my togs. We ran out on to the field and splashed headfirst into the water. We jumped, ran and did lots of tricks.
Just as I got cold it was time to get out. We ran back to class and got changed. Thank you Miss King for the most fun ever.

Forces on a Kite

Gravity is the force that pulls everything down to the earth. Without gravity we would all float off into space.

Drag is the force that slows object down. Drag increases as an object goes faster,

Thrust is the force that moves an object. When we fly a kite, wind provides the thrust.

Lift is the force that pushes the kite up. Lift is created by air flowing around the kite.

Tamarereti



Long ago the sky was dark and had no stars.
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.

The Bird

Dear Bird,

How did you die? We bless you with all of our heart.

We were walking in the morning on our way to the park when we found you. So Jermaine asked Mr Shaw for a shovel to take care of you. We wanted to take care of you because you are God’s creature.

Lee took the shovel and scooped you up gently. We carried you to the farm and we stopped under a tree.
Anthony started digging the hole, then everybody had a turn. Finally we put you in the hole and Lee said a prayer for you.

We all walked nicely back to our class.

We love you and we hope that you rest in peace and live with God.

From The Beautiful Boys and their Queen.
