Wooden arms was one of Emily Pentecost's and Taylah Peek's books to read for the literacy quiz. We got about two days to read it each. On the 19th of September it was the Literacy Quiz Competition at Opawa School. We enjoyed the Literacy Quiz because we get the honour of competing in the literacy quiz at Opawa School!!!
Claymation is when you make things out of clay and take photos and make them into a short movie. We are doing this with our newly created animals. We get to use Garage Band to record our voices and have music and sound effects. I worked with Zainab. We designed two backdrops, one was day and the other was night. By Emma Vincent
In Room 4 we have been doing recycling. While we have learning about recycling we are doing a technology craft. We have to make a playground out of recycling because Oaklands students are getting bored of our usual playground.
Today we have been looking at Time. Some people find Time easy but some people have difficulties with Time because some people see it differently. Some people see it as a 5 times table clock but some people see it as a clock with numbers on it. Some clocks are analogue and some times are digital.

Our last bus driver was so nice that some people wanted to get his number. On the last day of swimming I wasn't here but my friend Emma is going to tell me what happened.
