Long Bay extraordinaire

It was a miserable critical morning as all the trees were swaying side to side. We all gather to the hall and get ready to head out to Long Bay regional park, as it is near the Okura bush scenic reserve. As we all are aboard on the one bus mixed amongst 3 classes of 29 children. We were squashed! As we arrive at the regional park we were greeted to Sarah, James and Maureen our instructors for the day. The 3 classes are split into 3 groups each, we all don’t know what  our day will be like but the quicker we hurry up and go the quicker we get a life experience.
We are all in our groups so we skedaddle off. As we walk past a 500 meter high cliff we see that there is a sign that says(“ Beware  as there are falling rocks!”) I felt frightened. So we are all notified.
Then we see a number of rock pools ahead of us not even warned of what to do, you already see our entire class already finding different kinds of sea animals. We all get a tray each and scoop a cup of water so that they will still be breathing as we experience them. I went near a rock pool that had a rock in it, I pulled it back to see whats under it and I see a starfish. I was pleased that I found one  for the first time in my life.
There were big creatures and little creatures the most weirdest thing I found which I thought was creepy had a curvy shape, when I showed my teacher she thought it was a brain.
Shellfish(molluscs-bivalves. The word Molluscs means soft body and in the category are Scallops, Ringed Venus shell, Morning star, Tuatua and Mussel. Thats what I learnt I thought that, that was the best features I liked.
That visit was a life's experience for me as I learnt a lot of facts about rocky pools and next

time I see a Rocky pool I will look and be successful.

The last war.

Having to shoot
in our own boots
Make us think
about the last day we’ll blink.
Watching all the planes crash,
in a flash.
Taking that last glance,
as they stand in their shooting stance
Is probably the last time,
knowing that war is a crime.
As now we think of the ones we’ve lost
We havent realise how much we've lost

Creating loopy people.

Today in maths we learnt to measure body parts, Half the measurment, apply the halved measurments to measure, cut and create our ''loopy people''.

It was easy to connect the body parts
It was hard to add the correct measurments to the loopy person.

My feelings on coming to term 2 with a Blast!

When I got told that we start back to school on the 5th of May I had been excited to see everyone and have another exciting term with our teachers Mrs Parker and Mrs Taj.

Yesterday the 5th of May, was the first day of term 2. We started off with a Blast! As we missed one of our teachers (Mrs Parker) as she went to graduate to become a full teacher with our other teacher

(Mrs Raj). It was very nice as we welcomed her back the next day. That morning was our Netball session with coach. It was the best Netball session ever! And we would like to go back to the courts in a matter of no time.
