Wellington - Our windy little city
by Mya Simpson
What a pity our little city is so windy.
What a pity our city is so windy on a wet Wellington day.
The waves crash against the rocks.
The waves crash against the rocks on a wet Wellington day.
The skirts fly. The skirts fly into the windy wet Wellington wind.
The hats blow away. The hats blow away into the windy wet Wellington wind.
Oh what a windy little city.

This morning we had a brilliant assembly.
We had heaps of fun with the time telling. Here's some feedback we gave about the lessons. Jupiter thought that the numbers around the outside of the clock were really helpful for knowing the minutes. Lizzie liked that we got to make our own clocks. Jessie thought it was fun that everyone got a turn!
We have been working on time and reading clocks. We made our own clocks and made a human sized clock. We had to figure out who would be the minute and hour hands and then we came up with a time and showed it. Can you tell what time each clock shows?

In maths we've been exploring time. We've been estimating how much of something we can do in a minute and then measuring it. We've found that a minute is a lot longer than we thought--especially when you're doing star jumps or sit-ups!
I like reading to a buddy during Daily 5. Today I was reading a book called Food Patterns. When I read to a buddy I have to use a readers voice. It needs to be clear and I need to use a characters voice when I am reading the character's part in the book.

Here Tautoru are solving problems during Maths week. We got into groups of 6 and had 5 mins to solve the problems in front of us. We had to read the questions, work as a team and figure out the answer together. We got points based on how many we got right, the strategy we used and how fast we did it. It was a lot of fun!

During Daily 5 I was doing work on writing. Today we were playing Hangman.
I was doing my Mum's name and it was tricky to get because it was only 2 letters but hard to guess.
I like doing Daily 5 because you get to choose things and do all of the choices around the room.
I like reading to myself during Daily 5. Today I was reading a book called "The Gardener and the Scarecrow". When I come to a tricky word in the book I use stretchy snake to help me. So if you don't know a word, then you use your finger to cover part of it and you say "I know that word" then you say the bit you can see and then the other part. Then you put the word together.
