Tha Zin Swimming Lessons

Last three weeks year 5 and 6 went swimming all week except for friday. Every time after swimming we get a chair and put our togs and towel on the chair. There was group 1, group 2 and group 3 and guess my group if you thought group 3 then you are correct I was in group 3.

For swimming we needed to bring our swimming togs and our towel but if we had goggles we could bring them too.First we had to get a shower and then we had to go our group and then sit down.We had to put our hands on the side and then twist in the pool.

During my swimming lessons I learnt about the life jackets and noodles. For the noodles it is where you can go in groups of 2 or 3 I was in group of 3. One person has to use the noodle and the other person has to go in the water and the person with the noodle has to tie the noodle in a not and then throw it to the person in the water. For the LIfe Jackets it is where you have to fit a life jacket and then get in the pool by standing up and arms out then take a big step out into the water. Then you can huddle or huddle into a group.

I learnt how to doggy paddle and before I was really bad at it and now I am a pro at it.

Jess also told us that if you look at the selling you will float. Jess also taught us the group huddle with the life jackets and the huddle one by yourself. The group huddle one is where you huddle up with some other people on your boat or on your ship. For the group huddle you need to hold the back of their neck and then form a circle.Then for yourself you need to make yourself warm by holding on your leg  and then you have to wait for someone to arrive and to get you.

Thank you teachers for swimming lessons and for letting us learn how to swim. Also thank you to the swimming instructors for teaching us to get ready for when it actually happened and thank you for teaching us. Thank you thank you thank you.

I enjoyed swimming under the water and then on your back. I also liked the part where you get to go in the boat and then where you fall backwards in the water

Ruby And The Three Bats

Once upon a time there lived a girl named Ruby. She lived on a island by herself but there was also three bats and they were not very nice.One day Ruby was invited to her friends birthday party and so she has not seen her friend in a while she thought she could go to visit her after all.After she had made the present for her friend she put the present in her bag and on she went to her friends house.When the three bats had saw her walking in the woods they thought of a nasty plan to trap her and they got all the supplies and made the trap. After a while they waited for Ruby to fall into their trap so they waited … and waited … and waited until they heard a BIG BUMP. Then they went to go and check and BULLSEYE they got Ruby in their trap and they was so happy that they skipped and hopped and jumped all over the place. Ruby was very sad but she did not give up so then when the three bats were gone ruby got her rope out from her bag and it came in handy after all so then when she got out of the trap she ran to her cottage and got on her bike and rode it to the end of the island.When she got to the end of the island she got off her bike and got into a helicopter.When one of the bats saw Ruby in the helicopter he told the other bats and they ran as fast as they could and jumped on the helicopter and when Ruby saw them she screamed and the bats could not hold on so they dropped but that was not the end of the three bats remember they can fly they have wings.So when Ruby got to her friends birthday party she had a very fun time. BUT when she got back to her cottage the three bats were waiting for her and when Ruby opened the front door the three bats jumped and attacked her. After the three bats took Ruby into the woods and took her to their cave and dropped her on the floor then they waited for Ruby to wake up. When Ruby had woke up she felt dizzy and she looked around and all she saw was black black and more black it was so dark that she kept bumping the rocks and she could not see the way to get out of the dark cave.When she reached outside she ran and ran as fast as she could and from that day she never went into the woods ever again THE END.

TERM 2! Maori Technology

Today is the first day of term 2 and our topic for this term is Now That’s Thinking.This term for team 4 we are learning about maori technology.What I mean is we are looking at maori technology from the past and seeing how better it got in the future.


We will be comparing  things like how it was in the past and how it is in the future.We will be also seeing how it had changed like example -  cars they used to be old and slow and it was black then and now it is fancy and fast and you can pick any type of colour that you like.


We are trying to see what type of technology did the maori people used before pakeha even came.Also we are seeing what type of tools that they used and how they used it.


I think we are looking at how they made the wakas and how they fished and all tools they used to get food.I also think that we are comparing things like how things looked like in the past and comparing things.


I want look at sailing and fishing because for sailing i want to know how they made wakas and how they sail it.For fishing I want to know what type of tools they used and how they got fish.But what I do know is that these days people go fishing with a net or a fishing rod.

I mean that I want to learn but also compare things like how it was in the past and how it is in the future.
