P1: Two thousand years ago in a city called Nazareth, there lived a woman called Mary.Mary got married to a man named Joseph.  One night an angel appeared named Gabriel.Gabriel gave Mary some good news.The angel said that “God has chosen Mary to have his  son”So Mary told Joseph about the Angel.

P2.Then the king told everyone to go to bethlehem so he knows how much people he would have to lead.So Mary and Joseph set off and when they got there  lot of people were already there. So there was no where for them to stay mary told the grumpy innkeeper of the house about the baby so the grumpy innkeeper thought for a moment and said “you can stay here in the stable”

P3. But the innkeeper said to mary and joseph you can stay inside the stable.So jesus was born and the angels told the the shepherds that jesus was born.An they all ran their and the three wise men sore the star and they knew that a king was  born so it took them awhile to get to bethlehem so they bringed gifts for him at the stable .They were gold frankensense myrrh.

Steps for a paper mache mask

My recount of the Art gallery

 Introduction                                                                 On friday guess where the year fives travelled?If you guessed the Art gallery then you are right.If you did not then sorry but you are wrong.We had gone to the Art
gallery because this term we are learning about art.

                             Studio session
     After morning tea we followed a lady named Mandy into a studio session.She gave us a cardboard jar each.So we could draw a special day we liked.The day I chose was halloween.

                                     Lego playing
After lunch time we had the decision to choose to goto the learning centre or lego room.We chose to play with the lego and build cities and our names.When we were finished playing with lego we went to the light show.

I loved the Art gallery but when we left I was sad and bored.I can’t wait to go back to the art gallery for my third time.See you later.

It was sad to know that grandma and granddad’s were in the war and it was so sad to hear about what had happened to all those people who fought for our country.

I bless everyone who fought for our country is alright.When I grow up I might fight in the army.

Omari's what's buoyancy

A long time ago in Syracuse, Ancient Greece there was a great Mathematician named Archimedes’.One day when he was taking a bath he discovered something life changing.When he got in some water got displaced and it overflowed over the bath tub.
Archimedes’ discovery got him thinking.He was so excited that he ran through the streets without any clothes on shouting “Eureka Eureka”.This meant I have found it in greek.

He  figured  out that if you put something in water and it is lighter than the amount of water being displaced,the object will float.This is noan as buoyancy or the Achimedes’pricipil.If the object can float it is buoyant.

Omari's action world

P1:Last week was so cool because I went to the youth town holiday program.I and the youth town kids went action world,Mt Albert pools,tip top tour,loyd elsmore pools,movies and the Curtis skate park.My favourite was Action world because their was a trapeze and it was very high,when I tried it I was very nervous but it was actually fun.

P2:My favourite place was Action world.”It was so cool,my favourite activity was the giant trapeze but first you had to conquer the swinging monkey bars”.First you had to do steps to learn to do tricks on the trapeze.

P3:What I loved about action world is whenever you fall you land of inflatable cushions.My other favourite activity at action world was fighting our opponents with the bump off sticks.The activity I didn't like was the crazy ladder because once I got on I fell off.

P4:Youth town and I enjoyed Action world,it was so fun.I hope next time the trapeze is  even higher and everything else is very tricky for us.What’s your Action world like fun or boring?
