action world

Bang! I slipped off the jungle swing the two times I got to the end I got on the the trapeze
I did not want to go the first time because it was humongous the second time people kept
cheering I said shhhhhhh because I was concentrating it was fun when we were doing a
competition and I did the Crazy Ladder.I got 16 points we had to have two people on
each thing. We were Dare Devils. Beverages won.

Action World

Yesterday I went to Action World.I went on this place called the jousting bridge. I versed a person in my class called Joel then I took a really bad first shot and ran away and went down the bouncy castle and I won. I went on the high wire and I kept on falling off. The high wire was a big long rope high in the air that you have to walk across without holding anything. The whole Action World was based on bouncy castles. There was also this place called the jump n' slide. You jump of a cliff and slide down a big slide.
9 December

I liked Action World because the obstacle course was fun. My favourite part was the big swing.
You swing twice and when the lady says Now! you let go and you land on a boucey thing. It goes very high I went on it two times. It was fun and a bit scary for me. Because it was a bit high. I want to go to Action World again!:)

Action World

Action World as amazing. There was a trapeze, tight rope, jungle jim and a jump and slide. We also had a competition. My team came second. In my team was TG,NH,HC RTM andCHThere was a test to see if we could go onthe trapeze. I didn't pass, but Hanae did our teams parent helper were Ta's mum and my and my dad. It was the best school trip ever. My favourite part was the jump and slide. My hat fell of when I slid downthe steepest hill ever. After morning tea they blew up the brigde which we could fight people on. I won a lot of times. It was the best trip out of the whole year !

Action World

The thing I like about Action World is the big long slide and jump.When I went on the trapeze and the jungle bars I felt I was flying and I was so happy. The most fun was when we got to go around and explore Action World,trying our best and of course people cheering and the competition and Action World was so huge.When we came 2nd I was so proud of our group.We had such fun.The rides I like most was the big long slide and jump and watching the older people do tricks on the trapeze.I had so much fun and loved the games it was so cool.When it was the end of the day and we had to go back to school I was so unhappy because we finished our turn at Action World.

My Teeth

At my school we had a dentist.She checked out all my teeth, that are in my mouth! She was very kind but she hurt my mouth a lot because she said to me, ''Bite together'. 'So then I bit together and she pulled my lips. OUCH! What is your dentist like?

The Arts Festival

At my school - Oteha Valley, we are having an Arts Festival and I have 4 things in it because I am in the art extention with the Deputy Principal! Most people only have 2 pieces of art in the Arts Festival. One of my things that I did was a parrot. I made it by dabbing the paint brush on to a piece of paper to make a parrot shape and I did a 3D thing to it. I painted a piece of paper, let it dry and then cut it out, folded it and glued it onto the wing of the parrot.Everyone in our class created art for the festival too. These are our butterflies.

Wild Me

The liopolmonruffiger bird is about to attack you! Now back to the story. It eats lioorbantpolger fly. This creature is 13425.23144566 years old! They are old!  Run!  They're attacking! Just teasing. It is the best thing you can ask for.

Doodle 4 Google

This year New Zealand was chosen to draw a doodle 4 Google to put up on Google. We had to wish what we wanted to see in the future. So I wanted the world to have more rare and extinct fish and birds. And I started drawing a doodle 4 Google. So I made a g out of kiwis and a o out of fish.It will take a few days for you to make a doodle 4 Google.So try one now.


The Hiss-bat-croc-ger-at-scorpion is a very rare  animal because most people shot and killed this animal. Also animals have tried to kill this animal. Some people think that this animal is a pest but it isn't; it kills another animals that are pests.


In our class we have been doing experiments like: making jelly and chunky chalk. With the chunky chalk we got to make our own chalk and take our chunky chalk home. The jelly we got to eat; I just shoveed it in my mouth and then washed my fingers. Then I had another piece I drank it insted but there was nothing left to eat. We did a different experiment called The Bouncing Egg. It broke so we (well some of the class)had to touch the skin.

Our Community

Hello. My room is learning about communities how we are in the community.
The community is our world - everyone is in the community.
We have learnt about Fiji, Scotland and New Zealand.
Have you seen the haka in the news or on Sky Sports?
I also watched the Rugby World Cup fireworks on Sky Sports.
What are you learning about? :)


The Cross Country

On June the second it was cross country at school. At the start of school I started jogging so I could run faster. So after lunch I got changed. Then I went to the court to wait till it was the 7 years old boys turn to run. When it was our turn,we huddled together to start the race. When we started I ran ahead. Whoever I ran past they did not pass me again. When I ran around the rain garden I almost fell over! So when I reached the end I felt proud. I was in first place!


Our Wild Selves

Recently our class have been making our own wild selves and then we had to write a report about them.A wild self is a computer person except you can put animal features on it like a peacock tail or reindeer antlers etc. etc. My wild self is a Rein-rab-conda-ger-guin-fly-peacock and I named it Miss Wild.The computer makes the scientific name by taking bits of all the animals' names that you used to make your wild self. You can make your own wild self by googling make your own wild self.

The Arts Festival!

Hello everyone!
On September 29th and 21st our school's arts festival is on. Our school's arts festival comes up every 3 years. There is a enior arts festival on September 29th (year 3-6) and a junior arts festival September 21st (year 1 and 2). The difference about these arts festivals is  that the seniors do it in different groups but the juniors just do it in their classroom groups. The senior groups  are: art, extentsion art, photography, kapa haka, dance for year 3 and 4, dance for year 5 and 6 and creative dance. Extentsion art is where your teacher picks out people that are REALLY good at art and you do art with the vice principal.  Me, J.M, D.K and G.S got chosen. Me and D.K are the ONLY year 3's in the group. I can't wait for the arts festival!

My Wild Self

Our class made some weird animals.We had to write a report about our wild self. I was the fist one to finish my wild self report I got to show our principal and I got a  small sticker. The other poeple got a big sticker and  all of them said on them Super  including mine but it said Super Job.


Our Wild Selves.

Wild selves are imaginative creatures. Mine is an amphibian; that means that he can go on land and water.

My Wooden Cup

The thing I brought to school is a wooden cup from Finland. It is carved straight out of the wood so there are no bits stuck on it. My mum also has her name carved on it. I don’t know how she got it though. If you drink out of it, it tastes really woody.


My Special Treasure

What I brought to school was a Korean traditional dress called Hanbok. I usually wear my Hanbok on New Years’ day and other special occasions. The Hanbok is special to me because it comes in individual colours and when my mum, dad, Grandpa, Grandma were about my age they always wore it.

Song Link

Hi Room 16
Mrs Mac here.
This is the song we practised today.

Monday, March 21, 2011


We put an egg into a container of vinegar and left it for a couple of days.  We noticed that the egg sent gas bubbles up into the vinegar.  On Wednesday we  looked at the egg. It looked golden and gross! It smelt gross and we got to touch it.  But... most of the class didn't get to touch it beacause it EXPLODED! Someone popped it by accident.  IT WAS SAD.   But the skin inside went thick and went tiny and it was see through -  but it also did go gross. It smellt terrible.

Chunky chalk

Last Thursday Mrs McGhie made chunky chalk with us.
What we needed was:
  •  1cup of Plaster of Paris 1/2
  •  a table spoon of dye
  • water
  • a mixing bowl and a spoon to mix with.
We did chunky chalk for our topic Changes.
On Friday all our chalk set.
Then we took the chalk out and drew with it on concrete.
We all like Mrs McGhie because she does lots of cool things with us.

What we did last week?

Last week we went to look at the comments about Rohi's travels that she has had.  Last week we did some fun stuff like doing art. We had to have one piece of paper each with lots of different shapes on.  After that we had to draw our  hand on and had to colour it in with hot colours like red, orange and yellow.  We had to colour it in with hot patterns.   It was the most fun art that we've done all term.  We did it with Mrs Jones.  We also did singing and we are a little bit good - we always practise in the hall.  On Monday we did fitness and played Octopus.  It was very hard to run past all those fast running taggers.  It was good exersise for us. We  looked at lots of photos of  Rohi and comments about what Rohi had done during the weeks.  We've heard lots about Rohi's travels so far.  She still has lots to go on her travel.  Then she comes back to us once she's had her travels to many different places in New Zealand.  I wonder if Rohi had a nice time so far on her travels?
