Sound of the Week: 'z'


African Sunset in the Savannah

We love Art and we love Africa!
The photos do not do these African sunset silhouettes justice but the class did a stunning job. The richness of the sunset and the detail in the drawings are a little lost, so it's definitely worth having a look at them in class!

Sound of the Week: 'x' the kissing sound

A box and a rubik's cube! 

Plurals make the 'k' sound say 'x'. 
"No X next to S!"

September's Kingdom Kid

Congratulations Hawaiki. You're one super cool chick! 
Hawaiki's certificate says...

Hawaiki and Jerushael are a dream team! They are a stunning example of how friends can make each other better people. They encourage each other to do the right thing and allow each other to learn and grow. In your friendship you show love to each other and to others as well. You include people. Together you show us what God's values look like and sound like in a friendship.

Contraction surgery - it's an apostrophe invasion!




Thursday, 16 August 2018

A5 has an apostrophe invasion!

Apostrophes have two jobs. Watch out for Mr Apostrophe. Don't be fooled by his smile. In truth, he is a thief! We have caught him red handed! When he is thieving we call these words CONTRACTIONS.
Contractions are like a worm when it moves. Extend, contract, extend, contract. The two words 'I' and 'am' (extend) are the same 'worm' as I'm (contract). Both carry the same meaning.
I am a wiggly worm.
I'm a wiggly worm.

We are going to look at Mr Apostrophe's second job in a few weeks, after we learn to identify him at his thieving tricks!

There's a new protector in town! Protector 'tch'

Sound of the Week! 'ch'

Hawaiki brought her sister's chicken into school for a visit!

Chips, chocolate, chalk and torch! Speaking of chocolate...look at these chocolate smothered faces!
Looks like you boys are in chocolate heaven. We had a lot of fun writing about the experience of eating chocolate. We are not sure if you would want to read our stories though. They would definitely make you hunger for chocolate. That was our goal.

We used sentences in our stories like...
"Deep dry hard chocolate tastes like chocolate silk." Harry 

"Irresistable chocolate..." Maximus 

"It's layers are chocolaty liquid that take you to the world of chocolate." Mason 

"Chocolate dribbling down my chin. Mmmmm... yum, yum! Liam 

"Chocolate like a stream of creamy custard running down my mouth." Caleb

"I smell the sweetness of drizzling chocolate. It is bitter. It's sweet and great." Jerushael

"Bleeding, deep brown chocolate smothered my mouth. My tongue licked all the creamy taste. Matthew C

"Chocolate cream melting in the mouth." Joseph

"Chocolate drizzled down my chin." Jerushael

"Chocolate dripping down my lips, melting slowly on my tongue. Drip, drip, drip.
Chocolate so big that you want to eat it. “Chocolate come to me. Chocolate I can see you,” I cried out." Hawaiki

"Smooth amazing chocolate slithering down the mountain of my mouth.
Yum, yum, yum.
Melting like raindrops and shining.
Dark chocolate mixed with cream milk. 
Perfume like candy." Steffini 

"Chocolate melting like rain in my mouth." Ellaye

"Chocolate is dripping smooth, soft drips in my mouth." Harry 

"It made me crumble like a rock." Ellaye

"Creamy brown dried up into a block." Matthew T

"My eyes grew bigger and bigger." Matthew C

"It's delicious but... not nutritious." Maximus
