The strange lady

“Weee!” I joyfully scream, “Wait, what's that strange feel”?
 I choke with worry, my insides tighten, I swallow - trembling what's happening?
Her curly, fuzzy white hair sticks up on end and with her torn jeans, she edges towards me. My heart's thumping as she takes a step closer, and closer.
‘What should I do? What should I do?’ I think. Suddenly her evil smoke surrounds me in a dark stinky cloud. I take a step back, and another, and another. Suddenly, she takes a step closer, and closer, then all of a sudden someone shouts out…
“Get away from her!”
 The lady freezes like she is under some type of magic spell. Then she finally turns around and looks at my brother, and they start to argue, and argue, and argue, then finally they stop. She looked at us and said…
 “You have ten seconds to go, 10….9…...8…7…” By the time she gets to six we are out of sight running for our lives!

Science journal

Week 1: Starting to think about science: Gathering and Interpreting Data.
Today in the morning we were doing experiments with slime I think that I learnt a lot because when we were making slime I learnt that in the slime when the particles in the corn starch stuck together it caused the slime to go hard but when you stopped playing with it the particles in the corn flour separated the particles and the slime turned into a liquid. On the rubric I placed myself on relational because I learnt a lot about slime and how to make it and I can explain why the slime turns into a liquid.

Week 2: Balloon Rocket experiment
Today our class has been making balloon rockets. To make one of the balloon rockets you would need a balloon, some string,some tape,a straw and to chairs.
The steps to make a balloon rocket are pretty simple so first you thread your straw thru the string and tie both ends of the string to the chairs tightly. Then you can ether blow the balloon up and tape it to the straw or you can tape the balloon to the straw and then blow up the balloon. The next step is to one do NOT tie the balloon up. Ok now the last step is to bring the balloon and straw back to the start and let go, and that's it that is how you make your own balloon rocket.
I think that my observations are relational because I know what to do to make my observations accurate and reliable. I also think that my inferences are relational because I know how, why, when and what I need to do to make my inferences reliable and make sense.

Responsible citizen reflection.

This year we have been learning about responsible citizens.When I first started writing on how to be responsible citizen, I had know ideas on what to do my mind was blank.

At first I was multistructural because I knew I was being a responsible citizen by being trustworthy, caring for others and being a helpful bystander but I wasn't sure why it was so important to be a responsible citizen.

I now know that to be a responsible citizen you have to be trustworthy so if you ask for something you give it back and you have to be a helpful bystander and stand up for kids getting bullied, you have to care for others treat them how you want to be treated, and you have to be a role model and do the right thing. This year I have been a responsible citizen by putting my hand up for things such as

       Helping people put the books back and getting books out.
Radio DJs
       To tell people what is going on.
orchestra, flute and ukulele
       Letting people enjoy the music
wet day monitor
    Letting teachers have a break without worrying what's going on.
Picking up rubbish!
      Helping to make the environment clean.

My project helps to be a responsible citizen because you are giving up some of your time to help

others, and teach them something that you are experienced about. My project helps to think about others and think if they will enjoy learning something that you like.

Overall I think that I would rate myself extended abstract because I have learnt a lot about being a responsible citizen and I can help others to be a responsible citizen and do the right thing.

Are you a responsible citizen?

Are you a responsible citizen? Well if you are then you will know how big of a role it is. A responsible  citizen has a big job but a lot of qualities.A quality that they would need to have would be two follow the rules and laws.

 A responsible citizen has to be trustworthy this is important because you can trust other people and your friends, and you would be happy. If this quality was missing it would mean that people would take others things, people would not have kind friends and you would not be happy.

 Another quality is that they would have to be a role model, you can do this by picking up rubbish because someone else would copy you, and people would care more for each other and you would be safe. If this was missing, if you did something bad then others would copy you, the world would be a huge dump and copying would be a problem.

Another quality is they would have to care for people. This is important because if somebody is getting bullied they would be a helpful bystander and stick up for them. They would be happy and they would not hurt other people. If this quality was missing then no one would be happy,  you would hurt people and you would fight back.

The last but most important quality that a responsible citizen would need to have is to be a helpful bystander. This is really important because you can stop bullying, people would get help and you would be safe. If this quality was missing then there would be a lot of bullying, people can not have help when they need it, and you would not feel safe wherever you are.

 A responsible citizen I know is  Neve because she helps other kids if they are lonely, sad or hurt. And when she sees rubbish  she always picks it up, sometime other little kids copy and put it in the bin like her. The other reason why she is a responsible citizen is because I know that I can trust her so if she said that she will send a photo to me I know that I can trust her that she will.

Overall  it is important to be a responsible citizen because if you pick up rubbish every day, then I think that the world would be a happier and better place. Also if you are getting bullied you should tell a teacher or someone because if you do you will not be getting bullied and you will feel safer we're ever you are. You should also be trustworthy because if you are then you friends will be able to trust you and they will be happy because they know will know that you will do it. A really important thing is that you should be is a helpful bystander because if you are then you will feel good once you have helped someone and stood up for them. You would also have to be a role model because if you are not then others would copy you so if you do the right thing then younger kids would copy and think that it is the right thing. And last but not least you would have to care for others and treat them how you would want to be treated.

Centrals hard out writing.

Squishy hot seats, yelling parents. It's was a hot summer's day. My togs dripped on the seat, I shivered with joy. I thought to myself  “I didn't know there was going to be this many people at centrals.” We started warming up. I did flapping arm warmups and stretches. We were led into a room where we all just chatted. I asked one of the girls how old she was. She said that she was 13! I felt worried - I'm only 9. Finally we are led out to the pool. I hopped onto the block. “On your marks, Get set, GO!” I dived into the water. I kicked, I pushed, I reached, I pulled, I puffed, everything. And no sadly I did not win. I jumped out of the pool.  I felt cold, wet and puffed because I had  just finished racing in the 50m butterfly race. Even when I don't get a placing I still love swimming and trying to reach my goals.

My metaphor poem.

I am a limo,
extending my ideas and creations every day.

I am a the Eiffel Tower,
pushing past the limits,
I am unbreakable.

I am a  flower,
swaying to the wind,
dancing and singing softly.

I am a strawberry,
sweet, juicy and unique.

I am a cupcake,
exploding with bright colours and ideas.

I am a pair of converse sneakers,
very stylish,
looking for new adventures everyday.

Ko Rosa ahau.

Hide and seek

Footsteps thunder across the park.
We race to find the best spot.
I zoom to the nearest bush.
Am I hidden enough am I quite enough.
Stay still don’t move a soul.
Ready or not here we come!
Out of the corner of my eye I see two seekers ready to pounce on their prey.
People near me all start whispering.
Like a fairy clapping its wings together.
I wonder to myself why do they have to whisper why can’t they just be silent!
Quick tuck up like a polar bear.
Feet start to slip around on the leaves.
Like we are all ice skating for the first time.
We are all differently going to get found now I mumble.
Quick be quiet don’t even dare to breath.
A darkening shadow pauses over us like giants ready to have lunch.
Oh no there is mrs pageot she is going to find us!
Crunch up your eyes and hold your breath.
Found you!
Oh no I have been captured in the class bubble.
I should have hid in a better hiding spot.
