Ashhurst Trip

"Yippee we're at Ashhurst Herb Farm!" I yelled. I sprinted out of the van and waited for the instructions just then Mrs Palmer shouted at the kids in the garden"Get out of there and get into a line!" Lucky I'm not one of them I thought to myself. After that my dad Alan shouted " In case you don't know who I am my name is Alan and I work out at the prison and there are big people in there and even they give me a little bit of respect so you should give your teachers a lot of respect so get in a line and listen for your instructions!" So we got in a line and walked into the Herb Farm education room. The lady who was talking to us name was Jess. She told us how to make a cream. I called it Al's son.

Here is the cream I made.


This is my facts about Ongaonga / stinging nettle I hope you learn some new facts about it.

acrostic poem

For family's of the workers at Fonterra.
Over in Hawera was where we had the party.
Not for random people.
Terrific time.
Enormous place.
Really fun and exiting for me.
Really interesting to experience.
An awesome way to have fun in the after noon.

People had fun and so did I.
At the end grandpa got dunked in a dunking machine.
Really big with lots and lots  of people.
The workers and volunteers gave free turns on bouncy castle and free food.
You would have had heaps of fun.

Can I write in paragraphs

One day I was walking home when a green alien jumped out of the bush, he kind of looked like Sponge Bob. He told me his name. Guess what his name was? It was Video alien. He told me he crashed in a huge ship. The one big red eye in the middle of his head looked at me where ever I went. His skin was more like a pale green colour that has faint brown dots all over him and he had a big shiny red and grey antenna on top of his head. He gave me a a big toothy grin just like Sponge Bob. Maybe he is Sponge Bob just in an alien form. He had three fingers and two toes I thought that was a bit strange.

He talked to me that he was kind to his friends. The alien is always happy and when he sees I am super sad Video alien always tries to cheer me up and his friends don't like to see people sad ether. The alien is the kindest alien I have ever seen and the only alien I've ever seen in my whole life. Video alien is a great friend to humanity.

Video alien is a kind person to me. He likes to run everywhere at anytime. The alien is friendly to me and other people. He can't eat properly because he only has two teeth.Video alien like's to get dirty all the time Just like me.I hear him climb up and down trees all day. He is a kind friend.

L.I.Can I support my ideas with detail?

An old cracked court lay at the back of the school as if it lay there for years and years. It has new painted lines, they are pure white. It used to have old hoops that use to be bright red hoops but they got taken off. The old court brings joy to all the wonderful children in the school. It is really fun if you want to practice your shots. The sent of the moss and dirt goes through my nose as I run across the court.The concrete pounds against my feet as I run across the court. I can watch children practice their shots for basketball. The sound of excited children goes through my ears.

Green Pastures Camp

On camp we did lots of activity my favorite activity was raft making. My group members were James, Connor, Mase, Jaxon, Jake, Coz, Karl and Alan my dad. My dad showed us how to make a raft. He had learnt it at scouts when he was a little boy. After we had made the raft we had to test it. When we got it down the steep hill we had to test it to see if it floats. Connor and I were afraid that the raft would sink but luckily it didn't sink.

L.I. Can I attempt to write some complex sentences?

One cold morning I was walking down the street, when a dog jumped over the fence and it started chasing me down the long curved path.After I got the dog to stop chasing me. I walked to the shop to buy some biscuits so my dog could eat. When I started to walk home I saw the dog that chased me. Instead of going the normal way home I decided to walk home a different way because I didn't want it to chase me. When I started to walk home a different way, I walked past the video store and looked in the window. Then I kept on walking. I got home and I gave the biscuits to my dog and said to myself what a weird day.

My Family Treasure

For our inquiry we have been learning about each other so we can be successful community.We brought a family treasure to school to share with each other

My treasure is Kauri gum that came from a Kauri tree. It has been dug it out of the ground and it is hundreds of years old. After  it was dug  out of the ground it got put it onto a shovel and put  over a camp fire after it has gone all soft and is still hot plait it, it will be very fragile. It can be worth a lot of money.  My great great Uncle Bill made this hundreds of years ago when he went north of Auckland to a swamp in a place called Dargaville I feel happy and proud of having a great great uncle named William Bennett who made an irreplaceable thing and a very, very fragile treasure.

He loves Who"s your Daddy? Jack laughs out loud all the time. It sounds like an earthquake. He likes to play the super brilliant soccer. Once he stole the soccer ball off of the coach at soccer and scored a goal. He likes to do karate and kicks a variety of different kicks. Sometimes he plays on the black shiny play station 3 with me.

Acrostic Poem

Water is muddy and brown
Animals float on the river
Nearly reaching the road
Great to relax next to
Awesome to kayak in
Nearly the biggest river in New Zealand
Under the bridge sticks bounce about
Icy cold freezing river  

Really messy and brown
Incredibly cold and dirty
Very freezing and long
Extremely dangerous and loud
Really fast and speedy
