We have been learning how to play Tchoukball. You need 2 teams. You have to try and get the ball into the net. You are only allowed to hold the ball for 3 seconds. When you get the ball you can take 3 steps, then you have to throw the ball to someone in your team. You are not allowed to snatch the ball off anyone else and you can't pull on their clothes. The other team has to try and defend the ball. No one is allowed in the D by the net.
We are beginning to think of things that LC 1 can make for our Market Day.
Today we made and tested these helicopters.
We are also learning to write a proceedure.
Here is our shared writing
First we cut along the fat lines.
Then we folded the dotted lines.
Next we stapled the bottom.
Then we tested flying them.
Lastly we added a paper clip to make them heavier.
Now they can spin!
Matangi and The Taniwha
We are learning to retell a Maori Legend and do an art respose to it.
The Legend Of Matangi
Once upon a time Matangi
went to live in the forest in Manawatu. There was lots of food to eat so he
invited his family to visit him. But people started to disappear. Matangi and
some warriors went to the swamp. They saw an evil, mean Taniwha in the water. He had blue scales, a big red scary horn, six legs and sharp spines down his back. They fought the Taniwha for a whole day. They caught him with a big magic
net and made him open his mouth. All the people he had eaten came out of his
mouth. They said, “Ooooh, it was stinky in there!” They killed the Taniwha and
now the swamp is safe. The place is called Himatangi.
