Another song from assembly

Le Aute by Reidhns1



The ad said to add more water into the juices which are in packages.
Mrs Makintosh asked Nikki that if she reads aloud to the children, she is allowed to write a story.
They went in the warm,cosy, inn.
The boat sail was for sale. It costs $10.20!
We went to see the sea rushing past the shore.

The pink scented rose was in a line of rows.
My hair was caught in the hare's paw, and I could hear the hare screaming!
Which witch is which?
The sun's ray was falling slightly on my son's back, and I don't like it!
The knight rode his horse on the rough road.

By Renitta and Peter

Some other homophones include these words

Oral language - what is this?

Today in oral language we were given a picture, put into groups and worked through some basic questions:

  1. What do you see?
  2. What do you think it is?
  3. What questions do you want to ask?

We made lots of observations but wanted to share what we thought it might be with you - you can listen to them with sound cloud.

My imovie

The things I’ve learnt so far about my movie is to organise first and find a really good book to do your movie about. Second is to be creative when your creating your scene,try not to use the same colour paper,make it colourful. I did it and it looked AWESOME!!!. When you are making a movie you can use paint, paper, and even play-dough and make speech bubbles or you can say the voice for the characters but that would be harder. If you’re doing speech bubbles check you spelling if you’re not sure to spell a word look in the dictionary or ask a teacher and a friend. Try hard to fascinate people with your work. Don’t make it to random because nobody will get it. Decide a good background and also choose a colour for your characters. You can even make it up, you can make it long, short, funny, silly, and even daunting. At first decide what you’re story is about and that’s all I’ve learnt with my movie.

My Eye-test by Sara

Today, kids were called up to do their eye-test, we had to go to Room8 to get it done. There were three stations to go to.  We had to sit down and then they tell us what to do like: "Please look at the chart and call out the letters". It was really hard because the letters were getting smaller at the end and they were hard to say them. When I got to the third station, my eyes were sore from all that light flashing in my eyes. When I finished, I got my light meter, a light meter is when you have to wear the light meter on your top and it records how much light you have been watching in a day.  You have to wear the badge all the time when you are awake, you have to take it off when you go to bed.
My eyes were sore but it was fun.

School holidays are almost over...

I went into school earlier today and rearranged the classroom, I'm really looking forward to room 1 being back in the class. I wonder what you've all been up to for your holidays. If you want to share your holidays, post a comment here. What movies have you seen? Where have you been? What books have you read? What computer games have you been playing? What are you hoping we will do in class this term?
