On Tuesday night Miss Costello had a PJ party in Nga Manawa We had to where our PJ's to it . When we got there we had to write our name on a piece of paper and then put it into a bag after that we got to chose a bookmark to take home. Then we were so lucky because some of the teachers read us books to everybody. It was really cool and it was really cool. After each story's some of the adults and the children got to pick a name out of the bag and read the name out whoever s name got called got a book or something else my name didn't get called out some of my friends got a book . Then we went were aloud to go out side to play crazy tag if we wanted to. Me and Katelynnwent outside and it was so much fun. Then it was time to go home and to go to bed. Today we had book character day and I came dressed as Dorothy from the wizard of oz book.We had to go up as a class and we also had to read what we were dress up us I said I am Dorothy from wizard of oz . I was a bit scared at first but then I was fine. It was so awesome. I really liked seeing everybody dress up in cool costumes especially the Annie's Pyper and Maya.
This week we had to do decorate our doors we did the BFG book and Charlie and the chocolate book. For the BFG we had to make heaps of postian and the charlie and the chocolate had a olmpa loompa, lollie pops, candy canes and lots of other stuff. My favorite one out of them is charlie and the chocolate factory door.
On Thursday week had wacky Wednesday but we called it wacky Thursday because we had it on Thursday not Wednesday. I had 2 cups in my hair one on each side. Katelynn had a coat hanger and Lara had balloons and candles in her hair. My Favorite one was Katelynn's one because it was awesome.
Each day of the week there was a gold ticket hidden around the school. if you found it you will get a basket full of books and other cool stuff. Yesterday the gold ticket was on Mrs Costello back because it was wacky Thursday I lough when i saw some get it of her back i thought it was funny.
Literacy This week in literacy I have been learning to retell the book called the Jump. I thought this was a bit tricky because I have trouble retelling stories. I think next time I will be able to retell story by reading lots of books and concentrate on what I am reading.
Numeracy This week in Numeracy I have been learning to skip counting in twos and threes to find halves, quarters and third. I thought it was a little bit tricky.Next time I think I will be able to skip count easier by practicing every day.
Olympics:For the last 2 weeks we have been really busy doing heaps of Olympics activity. This week We had to do three more activity's to have five done. For those three I did Paralympic a Inspirational story and a compare and contrast on the Ancient and Modern Olympics. I found Most of these activity's difficult because it was hard to find lots and lots of information about the Olympic people that I studied for the Olympic activity. For the compare and contrast activity it was a bit easier because Miss Panther got a site that had most of the information on it and all we had to do was Find the right information to put in to our compare and contrast google drawing. Here is all my Olympic activity's that I did this week.
Numeracy:This week in numeracy we have been learning to find fractions of sets and shapes. For that we had an activity to do with shapes that were in sets. The shapes we had were love hearts, t shirts, duck, hand bags, stars and some boxes. We had some questions here is one example. so say if we had 4 stars and 3 were red and 1 was green so the question would be what fraction are red I would work this out like 1/4 of 4=1 That is my example. I found this a bit hard because at the start I didn't know what to do and I didn't understand shapes and sets but once Miss Leigh showed us what to do I understood what to do on the google drawing .
Olympics-This week in Mamaku 2&3 we have been really busy doing some Olympics profile. We had to do it in a google drawing and we also had to use text boxes to write the information in to it .We also had to research people that that are going to the Olympics and do a profile on them, here all of my ones that I did this week and last week.
Numeracy- We also have been doing some fractions. My group had to do this really cool fraction thing we had to draw 1/2 1/3 1/4 1/5 and then we had to cut it out and stick it into our maths book I really like doing it.And we also had to do a screencastafly us playing a fraction game. I really found it a little bit easy and a little bit hard.
Speech-last week i did my speech but I forgot to put it on to blog. I did my speech on swimming I was really scared but I did it because miss panther embarrass me by butting my swimming cup on me so I done it .
