Trip to MOTAT

We went on our first field trip of the year...and WOW...we had a GREAT TIME!!! We participated in "The Great Race," where we had to read clues and follow instructions to learn about how people lived long ago.

Squiggling Worms

We recently read a book about a king who didn't want to get out of the bathtub to go fishing with his knight so he turned his tub into a fish pond instead. Here are a couple of sentences that Cowan wrote to describe what was happening in the picture.

The King was fishing inside the tub. The squiggling worms were escaping from the side of the tub.

Rainy Day

Sione had written a paragraph about a rainy day, and his writing group worked with him to edit's what they came up with.

I was so excited when I saw that it was raining outside! I went to my mum to ask if I could go out to play. She said, "Yes my dear boy you may go out."

Scary Looking King

Liku wrote a couple of sentences about a picture from one of our favourite stories - Kingbidgood's In The Bathtub.

What a scary looking king who changed his bathtub into a pond so that people could go fishing. There was a frog peeking over the lily pad and a slippery, slimy, snail trying to escape from the bath tub.
