In reading, we have been studying on the main character in our books. For feelings, I didn't really discover how he felt during the book. I highly recommend that whoever is reading this post, should read this book - Caleb by The procession towards the end is really mysterious and interesting.
Learn - We are learning to write a narrative writing.
Prompt - “.... but I didn’t understand the instructions”
“Mr, but I didn’t understand the instructions because she kept talking to me!”. “Well move away from her!” Mr Bean said. So I moved away from her. Just as Mr Bean started explaining the instructions to me, Mei started to distract me. When Mei finished talking, Mr Bean stopped & he said “Everybody understand?”. In my mind, I said no because I knew he would’ve got angry so I went around asking students if they listened and I finally came across somebody who listened & knew. She explained it all and she said we’re playing octopus.
We moved into our places and Mr Bean asked who wanted to be an Original Tagger. As soon as he said that we all raised our hands. But Mr Bean chose Me, Mei, Trina, Laki, Beni & Stella. Then we went into our places and then Mr Bean shouted “octopus!”. Everybody waited for the countdown and they all ran. Not that many people got tagged because there were too many people running at the same time and it was too crowded to tag them at the same time.
In art, we created Family Trees at the start of Term 2. This artwork took a lot of time and effort. I found this artwork really stressful. I found the stage where I glued in the blossoms stressful because I had to go back to my netbook, go back to my art, go back and forth. The blossoms beside each branch define each person's personality. I had a document where it had the definition of each color I put into my artwork and going back and forth caused me a lot of stress.
I only added my siblings, my parents, my parent's parents, my aunties, uncles, and cousins that we're close to.
Overall, this was worth the effort and time because I think my artwork looks beautiful.
Today, our school had a learning assembly. In our learning assemblies, we share what we learn in our classes. Throughout this week, our class was separated into groups and were given a topic that we have learned about to share. My group and I were given Art, Te Reo.
In art, we created a Family Tree project. On our tree branches, we wrote out families names in Te Reo.
My group and I created a movie to show the evidence of our learning.

Today on Stage 6, I got 32/40. It was a struggle in the 1000's, but I'm learning to solve a 4 digit number problem quickly. I will work on my 1000's throughout this week and next time I do prototec, maybe the 1000's column will at least be all correct.
