Magic play dough

In class we where given play dough full of MAGIC. We then wrote a rhyming poem about it. Here is mine.

I have play dough in my hand
It felt just like sand.

I gave it a squeeze,
but it said to be gentle please.

I can't believe my eyes it’s blue
My wish might come true.

I take it out of the bag it was lumpy,

It even felt a little bumpy.

Writing Prove it 15

LI Can I sequence my ideas?

I get up in the morning have my hot chocolate then put my school uniform on. Say bye to my dog as I walk to my car. Mum drops me off at school and I walk to my classroom and wait until the first bell goes off. Then I play inside until the other bell goes off. Next we sit and sing our songs and have our whats on top. Sometimes I don't have anything to share so I just sit and listen to everyones stories.
Then we go do our jobs which are doing the rubbish around the school.

Cooking at Rutherford

For the last three Wednesdays we have been cooking different recipes using potatoes. The hard part was peeling the potato.  I had ago but it was hard so I gave it to Alex to finish off. The easy part was eating the potato dishes we made.  I loved them all and often had other peoples left overs.  I learnt how to put pots on the elements safety and check them by lifting the lid.  The handle has to be facing inwards.

Acrostic Poem

Splashed like a sea monster like Muto and Godzilla.
Party time at my cousins bday party.
Laying in the lazy river. 
At splash the kids where loud like thunder. 
Swimming in the deep blue pool. 
Here are the people who came me. 

Children where splashing all around .  
Everyone came to my little cousins party. 
Next time I come back I'm going back to the deep pool.
Time to go into the baby pool and relax.  
Every time I go there I see my class mates.  
Return back at home and played my game.

Prove it Ws 17

L.I Can I use alliterations?

The slimy silky smelly mud run was gross. It was deep dark dirty mud, it came up to my neck. It was cold and cool. We walked on a lumpy long log. Next we walked over the river of mud it was like with gross mucky muddy mud with poop.

My Treasure

For our inquiry we have been learning about each other so we can be a successful community. We brought a family treasure to school to share with each other.
My treasure is a bone  carving. I got it when I was born. My Uncle Damon gave it to me.

Paragraph Writing

In class we have been learning to group similar ideas into paragraphs.  Here is one I wrote about an important person to me

My favourite person is my cousin Corbin.  We have the same haircut.  That is black and short behind the ears.  He has amazing glasses. They have fire on the arms of them and on the front. They make him look handsome.  He has dark brown eyes that he uses a lot to play minecraft.

How to make a spinning top

a milk bottle top


First I traced around the bottle top on the cardboard.

After that I cut it.

Next I coloured it in.

Then I pocked a hole in the cardboard with a pencil.

Now I drilled a hole in the bottle cap.

Afterwards we need to put the skewer through the hole in the bottle cap and the cardboard, pushing the cardboard in the bottle cap.

Finally have a good time playing with it.

L.I Can I find information from the text?

We read the story It's Snowing Again. The people Anna Nick and Peter live in North Dakota. It snows from October to April. Outside it can get to minus 30 degrees.
The children do many things outside with the hard snow like sledding, making coloured ice blocks in containers, making snow forts, go ice fishing, clear the paths from snow and of course dress up warm. I am going to explain how to go ice fishing. You need to drill a hole in the ice.  Then put your fishing rod down and catch fish.
