DESCRIPTION: Every Monday in poutama we do discovery time to read more about it go to

For a little bit I made a hut.Then I went on the Pogo sticks.Then I sewed

HUT MAKING:With hut making It was quit challenging because we didn't have enough blanket but in the end we made a really cool hut all because we tried and didn't give up!

POGO STICKS: Pogo stick were really hard and to start off I couldn't even get on them now I can bounce six times in a row! And what help me to improve was my friend Tabitha! She really helped me and didn't give up on me and also another thing that helped me was not giving up and trying my hardest!

SEWING:The hardest thing about sewing was thinking of something to do but I was really creative and came up with a great idea! It was also really challenging to sew it but Charlotte helped me and it turned out really great!

Today was the first day of term 3! When we got to school the teachers told us about Discovery time which is what we will be doing every Monday from the morning till lunch. It is a time where there are lots of activities eg. Tents, Pogo stick etc. The purpose of it is to show excellence creativity and agency in any activity.
What I chose:
I chose two things the first thing I chose to make was Obleck which is a gooey slime like thing that you make with water and corn flour. The other thing I chose to make was a tent so we had a two person tent and we had the challenge of putting it up and then decorating with blankets. On our one we had a star blanket and put it over the top and pretended that we was looking up at the stars.
With the Obleck what we were doing was showing creativity with our measurement because we had no measurements so we had to guess! But ours was a success but to start of with it wasn't we just had to persist and not give up and eventually we got it.
With the tents it was quite hard to assemble but we got through it and like the Obleck we didn't give up and we got there in the end, and it actually looked really cool with the blankets. Then we stuffed it with cookie pads and bean bags.

In poutama we have been learning about the different types of clouds.

we had a task to write a story about it but BEFORE we could do anything we had to plan it in our hamburger...

Now here is my writing...

Have you ever wondered why clouds have there name? Cirrus,Stratus and cumulus? have you ever wondered who gave them that name? Well I am here to tell you. Luke Howard that who!He was a pharmacist by job but he always dreamed of being a meteorologist! He didn’t pay attention in most of his classes except for

But clouds were hard to study in those days because you couldn’t just pick off a bit of cloud and study it could you have to observe! Clouds don’t change in form they just change in shape!

Why are clouds call what their called? Well there latin! Cirrus meaning hair like strands there skinny.There clouds that are high in the sky and you find them on sunny days.stratus meaning sheet they are low clouds and you normally see them just after it has rained. And cumulus is a rain bearing cloud and it is very dark and fluffy.You would normally see this type of cloud on a rainy cloudy cold day.He introduce lots of other names for clouds that were mabye hald stratus and halfv cumulus and mixed them together to create inbetween names.

So Luke Howard is a pretty smart guy he learnt a whole named clouds and didn’t even study it! So does that answer your question

SLC reflection

On Tuesday I did my Student lead conference here are some reflection questions!

1) How do you think you did on your SLC? What was the highlight?
My highlight was that I got to share my learning really in depth with my parents.

2) What did you do differently to make your SLC stand out?
I didn't just read of the post I did it from the heart and showed mum and dad the real learning behind what I am doing at school.

3) How will you make your Home Led Conference in Term 3 be awesome? What things might you do to make it awesome?
I will spend more time on my post to really jog my memory and make it go above and beyond
