Today we got ready to go to tamaki college, when we arrived we quickly got of the bus and ran as fast as we could to get under shelter because it was raining and wet. When we got under shelter our teacher called us to run to our rooms- that we work in or Mrs. Anderson's room. We quickly got on with our work quietly. We were also finishing of our animation stories.

Dance Practice

Today and yesterday we practiced our dance for the production at the end of the term. We were split in to three groups. The songs we did were Footloose, I see red and Staying alive. I was put in the Footloose group. We started off slowly, then practiced doing it super fast because the song had a fast beat. We all tried our hardest to do the dance super fast. When we finished, our teachers  called us down to reveal our dances to the class. We tried this very fast, twice. When we finished revealing our fast dance we got a round of  applause. We quickly sat down and carried on watching other peoples dances. This was a rewindable activity because we were able to go back to the video from yesterday to help us today.

The Diffrence Between 'A' And 'An'

Today we were learning when to use 'A' and when to use 'An' before a word. If a word begins with a vowel which is A-E-I-O-U or silent 'H' (Eg; Hour or Honor), we use 'an'. We use  the letter 'A' for all other words except for the letters in the vowels. The photo shows the sentences we wrote to practice using the letter 'A' and the word 'An'.

Scott and the Gladiator

Retell and Paraphrase 2

Title -  Scott and the Gladiator

Key words from the text



Fight gladiator

Fight lion



What happened in the beginning?
Scott looked in the old mirror. Someone looked back at him. The little boy in the old mirror looked a bit similar to Scott. “Come on,” cried the boy, “Or we’ll be late,”. Scott took one step forward and he felt himself getting sucked into the mirror. Scott looked around in a strange way. He was unbelievably in a humongous arena. There he was in front of a tall man. The man walked towards him and gave him his shield, sword and helmet. Right there in front of him was a weird looking man wearing such strange clothes. The man ran up to Scott with his sword and tried to cut off Scott's little head covered with blond hair. Scott stode up for himself he ran up close to the weird looking gladiator and tried to stab him with his sword, but he had missed because the sword was too heavy. He’d dropped the sword and landed on the gladiators biggest toe. The man started shouting and hopping around, suddenly his helmet slammed shut! The humongous gladiator ran out of the arena and screamed “Ouuuuuuuchhhh!”  

What happened in the middle?
Next came the lion who stared at the boy. The lion started snapping at the boy and ran after him. Scott reached out to scare the lion. As he scared the lion the lion ran out of the arena. The emperor's flicked a coin to Scott.

What happened at the end?
As Scott took his armor of the sunlight made the shield gleam like the old mirror did. As he saw his reflection, he felt himself getting sucked into the shield. And back into his room he went. Scott looked into the mirror again and saw nothing but himself.

Title -  In search of Atlantis

Key words from the text

SCUBA diving

Searching for Atlantis




Lived underwater

Diving again


Strange Arch, stone walls, statues

Stone head
Carla’s arm

Everything disappeared

What happened in the beginning?
Dad, Carla and Rob helped Dad get ready for  SCUBA diving. Dad was going to search for the lost city of Atlantis. “Can we dive with you?” Asked Rob. “Ok” cried Dad.  “But you must stay close to me”. They searched and searched but there was no sign of the lost city of Atlantis. When they got back to the boat Rob said to Carla “wasn’t it spooky down there? I thought someone was following us.” “You’re just chicken,” cried Carla. “I wasn’t scared at all,”. Carla and Rob wanted to find out about Atlantis. “Go to the Museum in the town” said Dad “and ask someone there.”
Carla and Rob went to the Museum. “Can you tell us the legend of the lost city of Atlantis?” cried Carla. The man said that Atlantis was once on land but the people of the city were bad. Their god made a huge earthquake and the city sank under the sea. “Did all the people drown?” asked Carla. “No” said the man. “The legend says they lived on in their underwater city but sometimes they come up to the town. They are strange people with gills on their necks, just like fish. But beware, bad things happened to people who search for Atlantis!”

What happened in the middle?
“That was a spooky story,” said Rob. “Maybe it’s not safe to dive.” “I’m not scared,” said Carla. “It’s just a story!”. Suddenly Rob grabbed her arm. “Look at that strange women. Maybe she’s from the lost city and she’s got that scarf to hide the gills on her neck!” “Rubbish!”  cried Carla. They went back to find Dad. He was getting ready to dive again. “I’ll come with you,” said Carla. “But Rob thinks the stories about Atlantis are true and he’s scared. “I’m not scared. I’ll come too!” shouted Rob.
They dived again.

What happened at the end?
This time Rob saw an eel coming towards him. Rob looked at Carla and waved at her. The eel snapped at her. She swam as fast as she could to get away from the eel. When the eel swam away they saw strange buildings, statues, Arches and stone walls. “I think this is the lost city!” cried Rob. Carla and Rob looked up they saw a big stone head. When the stone head came sinking down it had hit Carla’s arm. They swam up to the boat. Carla and Rob had explained everything to Dad. Dad had said “Stay on the boat i’ll dive to see if it really is,” When Dad had dived he had seen nothing. The lost city of Atlantis has disappeared.

Maths Strategys

Today Javeylor and I have created a poster showing the strategy that we do in our head to solve the question (problem). We find this easy to use because it is fast and simple. This strategy helped me solve maths questions (problem).

Lunch Times At Panmure Bridge School

Lunch Times At Panmure Bridge School
Let me tell you something about lunchtimes at PBS. As soon as everyone hears the bell ring as loud as it can, kids run around their class rooms like crazy people, and also grab their lunches as fast as they can like they haven’t eaten in years. All I  hear is little kids screaming like there was no tomorrow. I see a lot of kids getting excited and walking around on the field telling forbidden secrets. I always see kids running around the playgrounds playing tag. As soon as the bell rings to tell us ‘lunchtime is over,’ every walks as slow as a bunch of turtles back to their rooms. “You know what?, lunchtime is my favorite time to play at school!

Today I have created a story describing what lunch time is like at Panmure Bridge School. Lunch time is the longest play time at school. This means that you get more time to play out doors with your friends. The most challenging thing was that when we started our writing session with Mrs. Anderson was that we had only 4 mins to get all our words down. After we finished writing I worked with my partner to change somethings and add in others because some of her writing didn't make sense.
