I have been working hard to learn how to use iMovie. My friends and I filmed the story of Little Red Riding Hood with our teacher. I was the wolf and it was fun to dress up as him.
We learnt to do green screen, add voice overs and even a Garageband. It was hard work and my teacher helped us a lot to learn lots of new skills.

Today we lined up then we walk out of school. We went past trees, birds and the creek. When we arrived we ran and got lots of sticks Ms King and Haare said “Make a hut”. Me and Moui found a cool as hut and there was a home for me. I felt happy because i was playing with osa and it made me happy .
Sadly Ms King said to us “We are going now.”
It was a hot and sunny day and we were waiting for aur cross country race. I was feeling nervou while i sat on the concrete. We lined up and were ready to race.
As quickly as i could i run through the muddy grass chasing my friend. Out of breath sore legs my heart was beating so fast but i never gave up. Filled with energy i started to sprint to the finish line.
I was trying my best and i was proud of my south when i cross the finish line i love cross country.

Last Wednesday Room thirteen travelled to the Cornwall Park in a bus to visit the Stardome. We learned that the stars are hot. We had activities that told us about who went on the moon first. It was amazing. We also had a picnic and we played with the flying fox and the train.

The Moon was probably made 4.5 billion years ago when a large object hit the Earth and blasted out rocks that came together to orbit round the Earth. The Moon is much smaller than the Earth. It is airless, waterless and lifeless. The gravity of the Moon, causes two high tides on the Earth every day.
The first person to walk on the Moon was the American astronaut, Neil Armstrong. He stepped out of his space craft, the Eagle, on 21 July 1969 and said these famous words, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”.

The sun is the largest star in our solar system, however there are many stars like it in the wider universe. The earth is just the right distance from the sun that our planet is not too hot or too cold. The light from the sun takes 8 minutes to reach earth and gives life to plants. Astronauts will never be able to land on the sun as it reaches 5500 degrees celsius - 100x hotter than humans can stand.
The sheer size of the sun means that its gravitational pull forces all the planets in our solar system to orbit around it. Born 5 billion years ago, the sun has been producing heat and light for a very long time.

Gravity is the force that pulls everything down to the earth. Gravitational force pulls everything to the centre of the earth. The bigger the mass, the larger the gravitational force. Without gravity we would all float off into space.
Drag is the force that slows the movement of an object through air or water. As a moving object pushes the water and air out of the way, the water or air pushes back on the object. This drag force is always opposite to the way the object is moving. The drag force increases as the object moves faster.
Thrust is the force that moves an object. When flying a kite, the thrust comes from wind. The thrust must be stronger than the drag to make the object move.
In a plane, thrust comes from your legs.
Lift is the upwards force on the kite. Lift is created by air flowing around the kite. The different speeds of the air flowing around the kite make it lift into the air.

Long ago the sky was dark and had no stars.
Deep in Lake Taupo lived a scary taniwha who ate people when it was dark. One day Tamarereti woke up he felt really hungry. Tamarereti went out fishing and caught lots of fish. He fell asleep and his waka drifted to the other side of Lake Taupo.
Tamarereti was hungry so he cooked his fish. It was dark and he was scared of the taniwha, but he had an idea. On the beach lay many shiny pebbles.Tamarereti gathered as many pebbles as he could hold and set off in his waka. As he sailed back to his village, Tamarereti threw the shiny pebbles into the sky where they settled to become the stars of Matariki.

Room 13 went to the beach in the rain. The umbrellas were in side out because the wind was blowing hard. We ran to the beach ready for excitement. We found hidden clay and we got all dirty because some glant clay ball smacked us. Jermaine got Caleb in the face. Caleb got a clay ball and he threw the clay ball at Jermaine. Moul was getting Soane and he hit Moul. We then worked together to lift up the logs to find crabs. Me and Osa found a spider crab. We got it and we put it in the bucket. All the crabs they climbed out of the bucket. It was time to go and we were all dirty we rolled down the grassy bank to get clean. We run back to school.

How did you die? We bless you with all of our heart.
We were walking in the morning on our way to the park when we found you. So Jermaine asked Mr Shaw for a shovel to take care of you. We wanted to take care of you because you are God’s creature.
Lee took the shovel and scooped you up gently. We carried you to the farm and we stopped under a tree.
Anthony started digging the hole, then everybody had a turn. Finally we put you in the hole and Lee said a prayer for you.
We all walked nicely back to our class.
We love you and we hope that you rest in peace and live with God.
From The Beautiful Boys and their Queen.
