Huffing like Dragons.

Balancing Beanbags

I am in a relay race.  I had to balance a bean bag on my head.  It is not easy to balance the bean bag and walk as quickly as you can to the other team members.  By AJ

Get Set, Go

Playing Statues is great fun.  We had to stop as soon as the whistle went.  You can see us all trying hard to "freeze".  By Shania

Drawing a Crane

I liked my picture of the crane that I did on Kidpix.  I tried to put in lots of detail like the hook they used to lift up the classrooms.  I got a Duffy certificate for writing a story and illustrating it on Kidpix.

My Sky Tower

I made a tower that is like the Sky Tower.  It is tall like the Sky Tower and it has different levels on it.  By Mata.

My Robot Family

I made a robot family out of Duplo.  There is a Mum, Dad, big sister, a smaller sister, a boy and a baby.  There are six people in the family.  By Waylan

Sheep's Wool

Sheep's wool feels soft and warm.  It can keep us warm in winter when it is made into warm woolly jumpers.  By Damien.

Feeding Sheep

I like feeding sheep at Ambury Farm.  My hand felt warm when the sheep ate the sheep food out of my hand. By Delijah

Mr Big

Mr Big sure was big and jumpy.  He is a white goat at Ambury Farm.  He was hungry and I fed him special goat food from my hand.  I held my hand like a bowl. By Zane

How Do Cows Scratch an Itch?

When we went to Ambury Farm we met Marmalade, an orange coloured cow.  Marmalade had an itch and she scratched her neck on the fence.  She couldn't use her hoof to scratch so she used a handy rock in the fence.  I wouldn't like to scratch on a rock - it's too hard!  By Shania.

Samoan Dancing

On Fiafia night we got dressed up in our Samoan costumes.  We had to wait patiently until it was time to go on stage.  I was excited but I was also scared.  Would I remember all the right steps?  Once I was up on the stage with my group it was fun.  We smiled at our families and danced the best we have danced. By Acera Junior

Dancing for our Families

I am getting ready for Fiafia night. We had to wear a special costume - not our school uniform.  I was dancing in the Samoan group.  I like dancing on the stage.  You can see all the people watching.  By Anna.

Waiting Our Turn

Making a Super Flier

I made a paper plane by folding up a sheet of paper.  It could fly right down the covered way.  It is a good flier.  By Damien

Fiafia Night

I did hip hop on Fiafia night to the song "The Sound of Sunshine".  It was fun dancing on the stage so our whanau could see us.  I liked our dance.  By Zane.

Jasmine's Beautiful Dress

On Fiafia night I got dressed for the Bollywood Salsa group.  My mum helped me get dressed.  I felt very special in my beautiful dress, necklaces and bracelets.  Being dressed up made me dance like a princess at the ball just
like Cinderella. By Jasmine

Frisky New Friends

I went to the pet shop and I got two beautiful cute new puppies.  They are white and brown and very playful.  They eat special puppy food so we got some for them.  Then we went home.

A Holiday Adventure

On the holidays I went to my Nanas and I went on the train.We had to catch three trains and it took us a long time to get there.  We had Burger King for lunch and the burger was juicy.  By Waylan
