Sky flowers gold and red blossom high above our heads
Spotty cats pointing there stick all over town last night This is the wind that shapes the tree Raging in from foaming seas There are valleys and mountains just as on land
In Reading we are learning about the programme Availll. It is actually fun. The first movie we watched was 'Horton Hears A Who'. There were 5 activities and they were called - Last Words, Match the Meaning, Mystery Word, Synonym Search and Word Hunt. They were all fun and easy!

This term we have been doing Dance with Room 15 and 20. We are doing Gangnam Style and the Harlem Shake. We are performing it at our School Gala. Here are some people that would like to share something that they like about dance with you...
Lauren-"Learning and teaching our little buddy". Anita-"Learning the moves". Zainab-"Learning new moves and she likes it".
In Room 4 we have been writing twisted poems this is mine.
The night was dark and deathly still there was hardly a sound. One Ruru calls it's own name it's wing's are invisible and make no sound. Out in a shed a boy is listening for radio waves from mars this night. Out on the street teenagers throwing lemons at windows until they see someone come and spread out like peanut butter. A boy wriggles into a sleeping bag which is like a cocoon.
My Mother goes on the computerand searches Facebook on the internet. "Click!" goes the mouse as Mum clicked onto a virus. Shannyn Oakes and Lauren Close went on the Oaklands school website but got in the virus too! It was muddled like a maze. My kind, friendly Brother got a disconnection to complete a game with Shannyn and Lauren and quit his game to help. He ran to help just as a monkey popped out of the screen like a Jack in a box. More and more furry monkeys came out of the youtube screen. The monkeys were as brown as chocolate. Lauren and I watched as he pressed a safe button and all the monkeys were as still as a statue. We trained the monkeys to play Mathletics and then the monkeys lived happily ever after. It was as good as gold.
I SAW WHEELS TURNING
I HEAR PISTONS RAGING LIKE A EXPLOSION
I SAW SUSPENSION BOUNCING LIKE A FROG
IT WAS AS BIG AS A MINI
IT WAS AS SHINY AS THE SUN
IT WAS AS NOISY AS 23 LADIES SCREAMING
IT WAS FAST AS AN AEROPLANE ON TOP SPEED
IT WAS AS WIDE AS A TRUCK
IT WAS A MOTORBIKE
