Scratch Name Animation

1. I liked making the scripts for the letters.
2. I didn't like that the D kept shrinking really small and really big.
3.the part that was challenging was getting the letters to do what I wanted because the scripts kept deleting.
 4. I used my perseverance muscle and my capitalising muscle I used my perseverance when doing the scripts and I used my capitalising muscle to get the most out of my time. :)

Maths (a rich task )

Name of problem: holiday pocket money (rich task)
Describe the problem: we got $60 and a ¾  of it was spent on toys and then ⅓ was spent on lollies and then 2 pies for $2 each
These are the strategies and knowledge I used to solve the problem.
(add more bullet points for each step)

  1. ¾ of 60 is 15.Dion helped us with that because he did it first
  2. ⅓  of 15 is ten also Dion helped us with this question too
  3. Then we got the answer as $6  
  4. Then at the end Mr Blakey came and helped us and checked that we got the answer of  $6
Describe how you used 2 learning muscles:
Making Links muscle and collaboration muscle because we needed to collaborate to get the task done and I made a link with rich task because I spent some of my money in the holidays on a toy.

Cold poem

It is cold.
So cold.
Birds freeze and fall out the sky,
Ants can't walk away with food ,
Cat's get icicles on their whiskers
It is so cold,
That hedgehogs have kept hibernating,
It is so frosty and wet,
Butterflies stop fluttering  
The cold cars refuse to start
It is so foggy and frosty,
The grass gets frostbite
The frozen families try to keep warm,
cars zoom down icy roads
And People gaze at icy fields
It's stormy and raining then it's silent and still.

I didn't dare move a muscle. Help my body told me I wanted to run but I couldn't then the shower turned on cold. then I heard knock knock at that moment I knew I was done for. . . .a few minutes later Mrs hill came in to see what was going on.I thought my savior But I didn't say that.

    Moari Hand Games

    Maori Hand games

    Last week we were split into groups and went to Maori hand games for matariki there was two groups one had the knuckle bones and the other had the whai (the string).Firstly I was doing the knuckle bones we did ticks they were really hard I couldn't do them.The first trick was to throw the knuckle bone in the air and pick up another it was really hard. Next we had to throw one knuckle bone in the air clap and catch the one in the air.
    Then we swapped groups I was in the group were we did the string or whai it was like doing cat's cradles I learnt how to do the jellyfish I did it over and over again then I did the waka it was easy after that we did some more hand games we would get our fists and thumbs and played a game the words were e hipitoitoi and you had two move your thumbs up and down and if you did the same move as your opponent you say hipitoitoi ra and then there was a one where you had two move your arms and say hei tama tu tama and you say the same thing tu tama ra and win then we had a competition some kids went up and vs each other and whoever won out of the two groups faced each other then one kid faced the teacher lucky he was man it was really fun and hard I had lots of fun my favorite was doing the whai (string) and learning how to do some new things with the whai.

    sailing on water in a boat

    Sailing on a boat in the water what could be better. I really want to sail but I cant I don't have a boat. But if I could I would sail every day with Christina we would sail all the way around the world. Dinner would be cooked on a cooker in a boat waves would hit the side of a boat. Every night we would snuggle into our sleeping bags all cozy in small spaces where we had to sleep. The ship's cat  prowls around the boat.And the boat would flow with the waves. We could fall down with no sea legs.And we were sea sick over the bow. Then the boat hits an island we get out and give the island a name wild cat island we call it .Christina gets us some spades we start to dig looking for treasure it starts to get dark we made a tent and crawl in and go to sleep.We wake early and start digging  suddenly the spade hits something its treasure!!we load it into the boat.Christina makes lunch then we get ready to sail since we spotted another ship heading towards the island the pirates were coming to kill us all I shouted even though there was only me and Christina on the island were going to sail home at night but the ship was after us we panicked then we saw Nixie island Christina sailed our ship or boat round the island to hide we saw the big mast with all its sails blowing in the wind the ships cat meowed and went under the deck into the galley where there was food we set sail for home cause the ship lost us we arrived home 3 days later  both of our mums were waiting looking red in the face our dads looked calm because we told them we were going to sea.WHAT WERE YOU THINKING!! shouted my mum you could of been killed relax mum I said  the dads knew well they never told us said Christina's mum giving the dads a mean look the dads went as red as red could be with embarrassment  well you done it now said the mums never mind I said

    The creepy cat


    Ghost cat
    Creeping around
    Going under ground
    Prowling around on halloween
    Prowling in his underground dead city
    Hissing through the dark cold night
    Scaring people and listening to their scream
    Creepy cat

    Cyclone cook

    Cyclone Cook
    My family was packing for Taupo .I turned on the TV. There was a warning not to travel then a big gust of wind blew ….CRACK! A huge branch fell onto the washing line.The cat flap sounded and two cats sprinted through our house.The rain pelted down onto the roof of our house and the wind made the chimney roar I listened.Bang there was a noise of thunder.It sounded like the earth was cracking we phoned our grandmother to tell her that we couldn't go to hers until the next day.I wondered how my dad was doing at night shift That night I slept in mum and dad's bed because I was scared.Cyclone_cook.jpg

    national aquarium of New Zealand

    A magical place full of fish and life as I walk around I feel the life. I gaze at the fish swimming around me I wish I could swim with them the seaweed waving all around me suddenly a stingray jumps out of the darkness and into the light I gaze at it wondering as  I move on when I entered the . I could see all the fish and sharks the stingrays that swim around in such a magical place.It is  like stepping into a new world of mysteries and life. Outside no life shines from it but inside It's a different world full of fish as I watched a penguin eat a fish that a man feed the penguin when I saw the sea horse’s and lobsters and the giant octopus I thought how much I loved the aquarium I saw a shark smiling  showing all its sharp teeth the fishes in the fish tanks I loved it but when we came to the  end at the gift shop I wanted it to start all over again.I also love the Auckland aquarium it's really good when I look out the window I can see the sea and all the fish. I never want to leave the aquarium!   By Sadie
