Poem - Flowers

Beautiful in spring
Rushing in the wind
Blinded by the colours
Chin up ButterCup
Making a necklace for your sister
Making them shiny with your pup
Convert in April
Candid in May
They sparkle in the sun
Beauty has begun

Toi Toi reading with P.W.C

Today people from the P.W.C Toi Toi company came to Glenbrae School to inspire us to write or draw something that can be published in the Toi Toi books.

I was in a group of four and my volunteer, Emily a wonderful lady that had an amazing accent.

We read together some interesting, amazing stories and poems that were published by 9 - 14 year old students from all over the New Zealand. There were also some amazing and mind blowing art that students younger than me published. It inspired me to make my own story, poem or even drawing a picture. I learnt some new vocabulary words that I could use in my writing and the meanings. My favourite text was The Warrior's Last Man (46 - 51 pages). The fun thing that I liked about today was reading the stories and poems and gazing at the art pictures.

Reading Work (Group Blake)

Image result for Cochlea animationToday with my group, we learnt about human hearing and animal hearing. I our ears we have something called the Cochlea. In between the lines of the Cochlea he have what's called Cilia (Hair Cells).

 Cilia's are are very delicate and fragile. they can be damaged by having headphones on full volume or from other loud sounds. As you grow older you start to loose your Hair Cells. To prevent this from happening, you should have your headphones to the volume of medium, or anything lower and if you are doing anything that involves loud sound, than you can wear ear muffs or use something else that will help!

SLJ Day 1, Week 1

Maui and the giant fish

Three facts about maui from the legend maui and the giant fish.

1. Maui's brothers thought that he was useless and weak
2. Maui proved his brothers wrong when he caught the most giant fish.
3. Maui's fish turned into the north island

I didn't know that Maui wasn't always a God and that he was seen as weak.
