Purswasive writing

The Dear govermemt  i should own a big Island!

I would build a dinosaur attraction for big moola we will be rich moola moola moola!  With that moola some to bills and also new attractions.

I will be famous I will have lots of safety  restrictions. I will invent knew tech and I will blow people's minds plus I will give you a free tour and I will take you to the control room.

One tiny island would power the big  island so the small island will hold a power source  that is powerful enough to power 8 countries  because the tech and super electric fences would need lots of power.

Plus big boats = lots of tourists it will be so cool that people will faint and we will advance to better Dino's ones that will scare parents  but for safety there will be big acu  staitions all over the park so if something goes wrong they will now there weaknesses and take care of the promlemo.

You don’t want me to be sad  and then I can’t follow my dreams  :( ☠️‍


Tomorrow on the the 11th of November is market day!

It was fun shopping and selling. At the end everybody was happy. The market day products I got was so cool and epic. Alex didn't have any money so I bought him a car track ticket that was fun. We chose our products by voting as a class. We used plastic jelly beans and cups. We got 4 beans to insert your favourite one. After voting we had flat packs,candy cane rain deer and popsicle xmas trees!

 (Knock knock! Who’s there? Brain busters. Brain busters who? Brain busters  are having an epic sail at market day.  They are so fruity and delicious...Oh you may be wondering what ‘they’ are?... They are… AMAZING, INCREDIBLE, FUNKY LOOKING CANDY CANE REINDEER! Epic sail they are only $1 come on down to Russell Street School. Think fast or you will be the last.

We also sold Wooden flat packs and popsicle christmas trees.

flat pack

 Design Brief
We want a decorative model that can be put on top of the shelves by the windows. The model needs to be:
  • Made from cardboard
  • A flat pack design
  • Good enough to go in a shop
We had a go at following instructions to make a flat pack Christmas Tree. We used this concept to help us to create our own flat pack using the design process.

As part of the design process we created prototypes and reflected on what worked and what didn't.

Chapter Chat

chapter chat

Chapter Chat is when you tweet on Twitter about a book. We get to do fun tasks like making a dog kennel. It is cool because we get to share our work with schools from all over NZ.

This video will explain Chapter Chat in more detail:

We have to write quality tweets. Here is a tweet I wrote to the question What is Winn Dixie's talent? And what is yours?

cross country

cross country

At the cross country my heart was beat just watching everybody else. Then I heard "year 4s come to the starting line". Then "on your mark, get set, honk". The hooter went. Everyone was off like a herd of stomping elephants running from their predators. The challenging bits were the mud and stairs but the good bits were the down hill and the big big field. At the end it was sad because I came last but at least I tried and I will keep practising until my breath is out.

My Learning Goals

Today we looked through our reports from last year. We identified a next step (goal) for reading, writing and maths. Here are my goals:

Maths: my next step is to make connections e.g 1/3 of 12 is the same as 3x ? = 12
To achieve this goal I will: practice at home and get better and better. I need to learn all my times tables.

Reading: his next goal is to take time to work out the meanings
To achieve this goal I will: practice getting the meaning. I can use the clues in the story to help me.

Writing:my next step is to use a range of sentence starter
To achieve this goal I will: I will practice my sentence starter. I will use my writers notebook to collect ideas on ways to start sentences.

We also looked at our STAR results.
  • Word recognition I got _10__ out of 10.
  • Sentence comprehension I got _10__ out of 10.
  • Paragraph comprehension I got _12__ out of 15.
  • Vocabulary I got __10_ out of 10.

I am going to focus on: Paragraph comprehension

Active Listening

We are learning about different types of listening. There are 3 main types of listening that we learnt about. Busy Listening - When the person listening is busy doing something. They are too busy to concentrate on what is being said. Me Too Listening - When the person listening has a story that they feel is more important than the person talking so they interrupt and share their story instead of listening. Active Listening - When the person listening looks at the person talking, concentrates, gives non-verbal feedback (e.g. nodding) and asks questions about the story. To learn about the different types of listening, we watched this video:


 As a class we created our own video to help us understand the different types.
After practising each type of listening, we realised…

  • Busy listening makes us feel like you’re not listening to us. We found it really hard to keep talking. 
  • Me too listening makes us feel frustrated and sad that you think your story is more important. 
  • Active listening makes us feel valued. We know you are listening because you are looking, nodding, asking questions. 

 As a class we are all trying to get better at being active listeners.

My Family

We are learning to introduce our family in Te Reo.

My Reflection: I need to practise my family names and all the Maori types

Van Gogh Styled Art

We are learning to paint like Van Gogh. We have read lots of books and watched some tutorials. We've experimented with painting our portraits and now we have had a go at painting sunflowers.

Our paintings needs to have
  • short brush strokes

  • positive & negative images (Main object with a complementing background)

We watched this video before starting to help us with our painting.

I am proud…
The most challenging part was…
If I were to do it again I would...
