Kapa Haka Performance

Bouncy castle

Last Friday during assembly Mr Burt told that the whole school would have a turn on the inflatable bouncy castle. I was totally excited, he said that the whole school would have two turns each, also in partners of two.

Once we were in class we sat down on the mat and waited for the other extension kids. Then when the others arrived we were planning to make our movies. When we finished parts of our movie, Mr Jacobsen came to our classroom and said "take your shoes and socks off because it's your guys turn to go on the bouncy castle." Everybody was so excited when we were lining up.

We walked to the huge line. When we were lining up, we were thinking of what we were going to do. I thought about doing a penguin down the stripy slide. When it was my turn I clambered up the handles by doing one after another, we would only get two turns on the inflatable castle. When I got to the top I plummeted down by shooting down like a penguin.

After our turn we lined up behind our class. Then on our next turn I was a cannonball. Our turns were all finished, we had a great time, thank you Tamaki Pride.

Kiwisport basketball

Every Tuesday after lunch Room 13 goes to Kiwisport  basketball with two coaches named coach Vinnie and coach Shenice.

When our class arrives at basketball we sit on the cool hall ground. We warm up our muscles by playing these games, stuck in the mud, red light green light, octopus and line tiggy.

Coach Vinnie taught us some skills, they were v dribbles, bongo drums and shooting like a waiter. He said"Never double dribble in basketball." These skills will help us when we play basketball.

At the end of our lesson we play a game where our whole class gets to play together. The is for the team who gets the most goals up to the number 5. The winning team gets to aeroplane around the hall.

My favourite thing about Kiwisport basketball was shooting and getting goals. What I learnt was v dribbling it was fun, v dribbling.

Thanks coach Vinnie and coach Shenice for teaching us new skills about basketball.

R13 mr bean

 The fat old lady barked and pointed at the long grass with her walking stick. “Cut the grass, Mr Bean” she shouted while looking at the old lawn mower. Reluctantly, Mr Bean headed over to start the rusty old machine.

“Splutter splutter” Smoke poured from the mower. Mr Bean looked around, he wasn’t one for hard work. He knew there had to be an easier way. Out of the corner of his eye Mr Bean noticed the cage full of little bunny rabbits.

Picking the grass, Mr bean went over to the cage and gave a bunch to the rabbits. Quickly they gobbled up the sweet green treat. Now he had an idea.

Tinkering in his shed, Mr bean created the perfect tool for a man as lazy as himself, a rabbit lawnmower. After sending the bunnies to work, he relaxed back in his lawn chair and enjoyed a cool glass of lemonade.

Uptown Funk

I made this movie with my friends in year 3 extension.

 The first thing we did was to write new words to Bruno Mars' song - Uptown Funk. Then we had to record ourselves singing. Finally we were able to make our very own MTV.

My Reflection

 I really enjoyed making the movie and watching it was funny.

 I liked working with my brother when he helped us to film. My movie was funny too.

 We messed around a little bit and sometimes argued with each other.

 We need to get on with our work and work as a team.

 Learning that we can write songs and  that it was lots of fun.

 All about using Garageband and iMovie. Also how to work as a team.

Girl and robot

Clang,clang went the tools in the quiet dark factory.Metal lay across the floor while beams trailed across the beams and ceiling. Hard at work the inventor knew that her dream was possible.
Something was wrong it should work. The robot should spring to life. Thinking thinking thinking. A twist here, a slight adjustment there. Full steam ahead.
