Report writing

WALT: locate, evaluate, and integrate information and ideas within and across texts.

Two weeks ago my classroom Te Ngahere was learning about the bush and what endemic, native and introduced trees and birds mean.
Some trees and birds that are in New Zealand can be endemic, native or introduced.
For the whole week we made a presentation of all the information we learnt about the trees or birds that we chose.
We got the information from this DoC.
Mostly everyone's first presentation was boring but then the next ones that we did were much better than the fist and I bet the third one will be great.

I enjoyed learning fun facts that I didn’t know about

Bay Bush Action

On Friday we had some people come over to  our school from Bay Bush Action. Their names are Brad and Stella, they told us what pest do to our Endemic and Native birds.
I really enjoyed holding stuffed dead  the possum.
Brad and Stella gave the school ten rat traps and Te Ngahere

(the class) got to put them on the OUTSIDE of the school fence, and now Paihia school will be the first school in New Zealand to be rat free.

All week Te Ngahere was making a vishal mihi. Not a lot of people do the mihi in the morning so everyone had to learn it by make a google drawing and put in the images to remind us what is means so that we learn it. I put a bell bird in it because it remind of the first line in the mihi.

Math goals

Last week Te Ngahere was given an Ican sheet and Te Ngahere  had to fill it out with what we need to learn and what we know. Then when we were done we had to do a Google Drawing and we had to choose 3 Math Goals that we needed to learn about. The reason we did these Maths Goals is to make our Teacher's  job a heck of alot easier because they use our goals to plan and don’t teach stuff we already know.
