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

This is our first aid kit that we made and it is made out of raincoat material and sewed the sides then taped it to make  it stronger.
And we wrote first aid kit on it so people know that it is not a fancy going out hang-bag!
Step Seven

Not very good because Christina and I were worried that we couldn`t do the hole punch

The sewing and making the things to go in it.

Measuring the 20cm rain coat and cutting it
Step Eight

Feedback - ask some other children what they thought?
Hanna=really awesome sadie and christina.
sam=really cool how you made it waterproof.
Caitlin=I love how you made the first aid kit waterproof.

ghost cat

I see...big black eyes with a ghostly face with green fur that was like velvet and the tail of the spooky green ghost cat .
I Feel... whiskers brushing  up against the my cheeks  followed by a lick of a rough tongue
I smell cat food breath and moldy blood  
I hear...meowing and yowling and faint prrrrrrrrring comes in all directions
I tast … rock and grit with a cat food tast

I think...something is going to jump up on me.
