in the weekend went to rainbowsend with Kayde and my mum Theresa . First we went on the log flume. Next we went on the gold rush 30 times. Then we had lunch and after that we went in the bumper cars, then the bumper boats. We got wet and it cooled me down. My mum and my sister went on the fearfal but I was too scared. I don't like heights. After that we went home. That was greatest day of my life.

I have been learning about Explanation Writing. I now know that Explanation Writing tells about how something works. I found the quiz tricky because there was lots of questions and frustration. My next step is to write my own Explanation.

I have been learning to make inferences. I thought I did a good job because I tried figuring out what was right and what was wrong by reading the book. It helped reading the book more than once. I read it at school and at home. My next step is to focus on my work and make sure I read every day at school and at home.

Te Tuhi Trip
Last Friday I went to Te Tuhi with my classroom. We went to make vertical gardens for Matariki. The ladies talked to us about what Matariki is and then we did our art. First we cut the top off plastic bottles and then we decorated them with stickers. Then we put a type of plant on them and then we played a game while we waited. I had fun and I can;t wait to see my plant hanging up.

I was learning to add adjectives to give my sentences more meaning.
I have to remember to use adjectives that make the picture clear for my reader.
I thought this activity was hard because I had to think really hard to match them.
My best adjective was big because it just sounds good with that one.
My next step is to use adjectives in my own stories to make them interesting.

I have been learning to identify the different features of non-fiction texts. I found this a little bit tricky sometimes because I wasn't sure what some of them were like the bottom three. My next step is to keep learning these and trying again until I get it right.

On the weekend I went to the school gala. I saw a big slide and lots of shops. I went to smash the car and went down the big slide. I hurt my arm when I smashed at the bottom, then I fell off. My favourite part was the slide. I had some hot chips. They were yummy.

We were learning to use describing words. I out together a poem about Autumn. I tried my best. I knew a lot about it and we had to figure out the colours of Autumn Leaves. We had to think about how they moved and what they looked and felt like.

This week we did the blue whale challenge. First we drew a whale. We clicked on a video and it showed us how to draw one step by step. Next we watched a video about whale and a guy searching for a blue whale. I learnt that blue whales can hold their breath but they have to come up for air. I learnt that blue whales are mammals. I am enjoying this challenge.
