On Tuesday afternoon Room 1 had Debbie. Liam's mum taught us
Turkish dance. This is the Middle Eastern clap. Put your four fingers just under your nose and go lallalalallalalala. Its name is Zhagreet. Then we had some fun dancing. I got to wear a special belt. My belt didn't make any noise because it was just a plain one.
I liked doing the dancing because I can get better at it. by Lucas

Room 1 went on Monday to the back field with a rugby teacher called Sam. He taught us how to play rugby. He taught us how to play zig-zag around the cones. Teams of 10 and 12 were scoring tries. It was the last day with him.
I liked the games he played.

On a sunny Friday afternoon Room 1, 2 and 3 did the cross country. It was fun. The boys went together, all the girls went together in the race. We had to go two times around the bike track. I was puffed after the race. We had to go up a hill. I really enjoyed the cross country. I saw my mum when I was running and she was with her friends. Her friends where Megan and Hanna, their kids, Bran and Polly, my brother too. The whole school did it. by Stella
Our class made landscape pictures with chalk pastels and I made one with a hill in the middle of the river. Also there were three trees and hills behind it, then a beautiful sun set with glowing pink clouds and yellow sky. Mrs Roberts put something to make it look shiny - clear varnish. We needed to use warm and cold colours in our pictures. By Ariana

My class had science on Tuesday. It was making porridge. First we put rolled oats into the hot water and we stirred it up. Next we watched it get bigger. Next we set the bowls up. There was a little bowl, a big boll and a medium bowl. We put all the porridge into each bowl. But we did not get to eat it. The medium bowl stayed the hottest because the bowl was deeper and it had a small surface area and I thought the big bowl would be

We made houses in our Inquiry Groups and put straw, sticks or bricks on the roofs just like in the Three Little Pigs story. Next we tried to blow them with a straw and see if the tissue paper inside would move at all. It was lots of fun and all the houses were quite strong.

Yesterday Room One went to Lord Rutherford Road to see the statue of Lord Rutherford when he was a little. He was famous because he split the atom. The jobs he had to do were to look after the garden. He also had to be a scarecrow. He was a scientist. His brothers died because two of them died in a boat. The boat tipped over and they drowned. Also, one little brother had hooping cough. by Stella
Yesterday Room One went to see the war memorial and the Lord Rutherford one. He was a scientist. The wall is a split like an atom. When he was little he went to three schools. Their names are Foxhill, Nelson College and Canterbury. He is a very important man and he is on our $100 notes and stamps. His jobs were milking the cows and being a scarecrow to scare the crows from the veggie garden.

Yesterday I went with Oliver. The whole Brightwater School went to a road safety demonstration and they saw a car go 60km. They bashed into the cardboard people and they went 50km and it was fun. On the 50km they didn't crash into the cardboard people.

These photographs are of our postcards and the puzzle we coloured in was in the Wanderers colours. We wrote about our favourite place in the Nelson area and then drew a picture of it.
We hope Whangarei Primary School like it.
The top postcards and poster were sent to us by Whangarei Primary School- thank you!
