Matariki Art

I am blogging this because my group work together really well.
We were learning to make the Matariki stars. Also learning about Matariki.

I found doing this art very fun and exciting.  It was interesting finding out more about Matariki.  If you do not know what Matariki is you can look at this picture I made on Pic Collage.

Here is a picture of Malena, Adrielle, Victoria and my art!

These are the stars!
The one on the left bottom is Victoria, the left one at the top is Adrielle, I am at the right bottom and Malena is the right top.
This week we were making Matariki stars. Victoria painted the background and coloured in the smallest star, Malena coloured in 2 normal stars, Adrielle also did 2 normal stars and I did the biggest and the 2nd smallest.
Here is a picture of the beautiful Matariki stars in the cold windy night.

I hope you like them!

Epic Tale

I am blogging this because it was so hard to do my goal and use all the characters I picked. 
We were learning to use our goals and make sure we use the success criteria.

My Writing Goal: I carefully select key content that is relevant and includes details/comments to support the main points,  and are increasingly more complex.

WALT show our writing skills
What counts (Success Criteria for all writing choices):
  • structure our writing with a beginning, middle and end
  • best possible words
  • makes sense
  • different sentence starters
  • paragraphs (especially important for beginning, middle and end)
Write a story (narrative) that uses at least five of the following characters.

The Day At The Castle.
Once upon a time, in a fairyland castle lived a beautiful queen and handsome king.. One day 2 visitors came with a girl and a boy. Their names were Charlotte and George.

The queen was terrified because The Guards weren’t doing their job because visitors are not allowed pass the huge antique clock. Worst of all they bought in a cow. “UHHH!” screamed the queen “they bought a cow.” she added. The guards came running and the king was angry! The visitors said all together “It’s not an ordinary cow it is a magic cow.”

The queen was now interested in knowing more about magic cows.
She started to ask simple questions like “are all cows magic?” The visitors laughed. “No silly, I..I mean your majesty” Now the visitors are actually from a different country so they ask the queen and king a question “What is your names?” “Oh yes, sorry my name is Queen Kate and this is my husband King Willam!” Queen Kate replied with a humongous smile on her face. Just then a man with a weird looking crow on his shoulder walked in. Kate gasped it was… THE DEVIL! All the guards came rushing in with cake all smudged on their faces it was their morning tea break! Since they did NOTHING the knights came and helped. They were all very furious at the guards for letting him come in.

Willam was so angry he decided to throw him to the mean, starving minotaur who lived in their confusing maze. The minotaur finally had his food that he has not had for 10 months.

All of a sudden a hero arrived! “BATMAN?” Everyone asked “What are you doing here. “I have come to give Charlotte and George a little fly do the want to come?” He asked. The kids fainted they were so excited! So that afternoon the parents had peace and quiet they had a nice cup of tea and a delicious cake.

They lived happily ever after and the visitors ended up staying forever!

It was very hard to do.
I hope you liked it.

I am blogging this because I am so happy of the game of netball on Saturday. We were learning to defend, jump for the rebounds and spread out and not be all bunched up. It was chilly down at the netball court especially when we were warming up. Parkvale Love (my team) played against in Raureka School Magic. The people in my team are BellaDikshaJodiKushiLakeMyaRuby LSkyla and I. Mya was our star shooter! She got so many goals. While she was shooting, down at the other end was me shivering away. I was in GK but since Mya kept on getting goals the ball was hardly never down my end. 
The next quarter I was on sub but it was awesome seeing the ball in the hoop. Third quarter came really fast. In the third quarter I  was WD. I liked it in WD because I got the ball quit often! In the last quarter I was GK again. The reason why I was GK again is because if the ball does not go in the hoop I jump for the rebounds. At the end we won in VICTORY 19-3. Player of the day went to Ruby L.

Casey Kopua

This is my favorite reading task so far. I shared it for my parent teacher interview. It is my favorite because it was hard not to copy anyone and I didn't! It was fun writing a opinion. This also helped me for my writing because for writing I chose to do opinion writing. Casey Kopua is the Silver Fern's captain and is our best player. Her positions are GK = Goal Keeper and GD = Goal Defence.

What is your opinion of Casey potentially playing this weekend?

Sarah- I think……..because

**Liske- I think that she personally should play a half a game because they will need to see if she is ready for the world cup and also if she plays this weekend and doesn’t injure they will have a great % at winning the game she has great defence and sticks to her player like glue. Also this the right time to injure it if anything happens. She goes to the  gym 8 hours everyday, or maybe more. She goes to the physio each day, she says there is crying, bad language and a lot of other stuff, she also says it is worth it because it it working and helping.
By Liske

*Ruby- I think that she should play because she is a great player and we need to know if she can play for the world cup. And if she didn't we will have to find someone else to replace her for the world cup. I think she can play only a little bit of the game. She has been working very hard because she goes to the physio and gym 8 hours a day! We need to know if she is able to play for the world cup 2015. Even though she had to wait 9 months or a year I think she will still be able to play netball.
This is mine!

**Georgia-I think that she shouldn’t play this week because she might hurt it again and it might take even longer to get healed. The game coming up would be perfect for Casey because she has a bit longer to let her knee heal and if she hurts her leg only minorly she has a week to repair. I think that she needs to play sometime but maybe not this week because she could not be prepared to play at her best against a very good team. Everyday she has been going to the physio and to the gym so that she could get ready for the ANZ Netball champs.  

*Sophia- I think that Casey should play because she is a good player and the captain of her team. They need to know if she is ready for the world cup.  She can also play a little bit of the game.  The Magic have a good advantage of winning but they need to beat the Mystics so they are at the top of the board for New Zealand.  She said “ I am going to try and land on the left leg”  But she might hurt that leg too.  She also said “I don't want to go back on court being a one legged netballer.”  Casey has also being going to the physio plus the gym for 8 hours each day.  Hopefully she can play in the ANZ champs.

*Kellyanne-I think that she should play because they need to know if she will be better to play and if she is not that she may not be able to play for a long time and I hope she can play because she is the best player and captain.There should be a limit of how long she plays for.She really needs to do netball to get ready for the world cup otherwise she will not be as good as she normally is.

*Shannon - I think Casey should play because I personally think she is the best silver fern player, Even if she plays half time she would get a good chance of winning for the team. If she plays she might be able to compete in the Netball World Cup 2015 and that would be awesome because she would have a chance of her team winning. They need to decide if she can play or not so they can see if she can play for the world cup or if she can’t play they would need to figure out if they need another captain for their team. Before her injury Casey put in the hours and time to practice for all her games and after her accident she still tries to practice for netball with physio and fitness, My opinion is that she deserves to play Netball in the World Cup.

*Victoria- I think that she should and shouldn’t play. She should play because she is a AWESOME player. She would really improve her team. And if she would like a spot in the Silver Ferns she would probably need to play a game in the ANZ netball camps. I also think she should not play because there is a really good chance of breaking her knee again. She also might not be able to jump properly that means she won't play well. She has been trying to get her leg right for heps and has been going to the gym 8 hours or more a day. That is why I think she should play and she shouldn’t play this weekend.

*Bella-I think that she should play because she is a good player and would stop the ammonites from getting a goal. She is a really good player so she would really help. We could put her on but not for the hole game. If she gets another injured she will know what she is up for. She will help the team while she is in and do her best to help.
