Is it snowing in the north pole.?What do the elves look like and are they good?Does rudolph have a shiny nose.? How are you Santa you should be tired from giving presents to every kid? Do you give presents to every kid? On Christmas would you like me to put milk and cookies on the bench for you? I hope the elves are not sick or hurt? Do you like christmas    
Every christmas my dad gets a christmas tree, unless when our family stays with my mum's family or dads family.. Every December we have a homemade christmas calendar, our mum puts a little thing in the calendar and then we take it out. Sometimes at christmas eve we get to open one or two presents.

When it was the holidays I went to Rotorua with my cousins and my auntie and uncle.  

I went to Rotorua with Nat, Murry, Sophie and Tara. On Friday my family went to a place called Zorb. Zorb is a place where you can chose a track. There are two tracks. One track is where there is warm water inside and the other track is when you are strapped in the ball and you roll inside the ball.The other family did the Zorb.

On Saturday we went on the luge. The first round I went with mum. She let me control the luge cart for a while because I was learning to control the cart. The next round I went in a cart on my own. Mum followed me in a cart. When I was up to a hill and I was going too fast, I couldn't slow down so I fell to the side and had leaves all over me and had a sore on my hand. So I jumped in mums cart. I had some more rides left with mum. After I did rides with dad. It was a race against mum and Jack. After the luge we went to the jellybean shop and chose different flavours they were Bubblegum, Kiwi Fruit, Candy Floss, Tutti Frutti, Red Apple, Green Apple and Lemon Drop.

On Sunday we went to a spa. It is called Polynesian Spa. There is warm sand under  your feet. You should move otherwise you can get too hot. Sunday was our last day.

A moment in time...

My Night Time Writing
I heard dad making coffees for him and mum.
I heard mom's or dad's footsteps as they left my room.
I saw the pictures out the corridor.
I saw the shadows of the things that were in my room.
I felt a slimy caterpillar.
I felt my blankets over the top of me.
I wondered if there is a monster hiding under my bed.

Scratch

In class I have been learning about the points of the compass and directions.

This week I learnt about a programme called Scratch which uses directions to create a little computer program.

My job was to use Scratch to create something that could be shared with the rest of the class. What my Scratch was about was all down to me and my imagination! I had to be creative!

When I grow up...

As part of our topic I have been thinking about myself and what makes me special. This has led to me thinking about what I would like to be when I grow up.


I made a ToonDoo about it.

Swimming Sports

Swimming Sports is where the Year 4s, 5s and 6s at Havelock North Primary take part in swimming races in their houses. We then had to create a voki for homework about one of the races.


Our voki needed to tell the class about our favourite race at swimming sports and why we liked that one the best. We had to remember to hook our listener in and give the audience lots of interesting information.
