what we have been learning to do

In reading we have been learning to find synonyms e.g chair and seat,photo and picture. In writing we have been learning to write a argument. An argument is when someone argues . Our topic for this term is kia kaha . In art we have been learning to make potato prints with real potatoes. In handwriting we have learning to form our letters correctly.

Happy holidays!

Hello everyone,
I hope you all are having a great holiday and not too many of you have been sick! Mrs Waterland has been very sick :( but is feeling a lot better now. 
I am going to put on a few You Tube items - one is for fun (I wonder if you can work out which one it is and if you can do the dance to show in class??) The other two items are for our unit around Persuasive writing - Arguments. Have a look at them and see if you can work out what they are trying to persuade you to do? If you can leave a comment - remember to do it just like at school, but hitting the comment button and leaving it as anno. I will get the email and will post it for you.

Looking forward to next week. Enjoy the rest of your holidays - have  a good break and be ready to share when you get back.  Think about your passion - what are your really passionate about? (I think you would probably say for Mrs Waterland it would be biking/running and her class of course!)
