the weekly post 3

Kia ora everybody, today the blog writters are Sam and Jack!
This week we have been very fortunate to have 2 lovely dogs come in and they are...
Poppy (Anastasia's miniature German schnauzer) and Memphis (Willow's border collie)! They are both very cute!!
For art this week we have been working on our portraits. Most have been finished and they are amazing! Come in and have a look!
Today is the wonderful wise and witty Mr Williams birthday! He thinks he is over 1,000,000 years old and there is no number for is age but we believe that he is 63! Mr Williams recieved a nerf gun from Jake (for kings and queens or any other emergency attack children times).
 The class also wrote many messages on the whiteboard for Mr W. Happy birthday Mr Williams.
Our dazzling photos are now up on our wall and they look fabulous.
This week we have been writing scary stories and brave stories. They are going very well sofar.
We are continuing to enjoy Stormbreaker so much that about 5 children have found copies in libraries and follow along when Mr Williams reads. Also many of us saw the Stormbreaker movie on Friday night.
On Tuesday Julius presented a book review on his book that he wrote himself called "The Mystery of the Holts."It is very impressive and has 9 chapters! He has been working on his book for a long time.
The book reveiws and prepared talks have been going very well. We had a very good B.R from Lydia  on The Witches which went for over 5 minutes and Thomas did a very good P.T on the history of Lego which went for over 4 minutes, they were both very informative. The Maths groups are also zooming along, and Amanda is proving to be the resident maths genius!!

Make sure you check back next week for the weekly post 4!

The Weekly catch up 2

Hello to everyone! Today our bloggaloggas are Brydie and Sam. Sorry the blog entry is late. On Monday last week Mr Williams received a new wombat. We think he is enjoying his new home and friends.
Last Wednesday we did a PAT listening test. The year 6s went up stairs to Mrs Bateman and the year 5s from her class came to Mr Williams to do the test.dun dun dun. Most of us completed the test well.
Busy days our Wednesdays, as well as having the test we became young golfing super stars just like Lydia Ko! ; ) We worked on perfecting the drive and learning the chip (no food involved sorry!) Yuki was the star of the golf session as he got the ball in the hoop twice while doing the chip.

 On Thursday we started our reading programme which meant choosing group names. We came up with the following: Dopey Creatures, Kiwiana, Team Minecraft, Tiny Tiddlers and Magic Koalas.

On Thursday we had our first whole school assembly. At the assembly they announced the student leaders.The student leaders from our class are: Brydie (deputy head girl), Sam and Lydia (school council) and Luseta & Michael (house captains of blue and red)!

On Monday we had swimming sports at Jellie Park! Our class members did very well but our relay team came 3rd.It was really fun and the people who stayed at school did art with Mrs Glasson.
The people who went to swimming sports had some great successes.

We are happy to say that the book reviews and prepared talks have been going fantastically so far! Sorry we haven't been able to get the videos of the P.Ts and B.Rs up on the blog, there have been some technical difficulties.

Thank you for reading! Make sure to check back next week for...the weekly catch up 3!!!! ( :
