Hip Hop with Jess by Kate

Today we did Kiwi Sport, the kind of sport we did was Hip Hop dance. Our mentor/coach was Jess, she was awesome at showing us the moves! My favourite part about the whole dance was the last bit which was the Shoot/Hype.

If I were to vote who was the best to memorised  the dance (except for Jess) I would say Agueer because every time I look at her we both know the dance! We are going to do Hip Hop on Tuesdays for the next 6 weeks. I am going to be excited to memorise more Hip Hop dances!

My Mum by Sebastian

My mum is the best thing ever in my life
I would do anything even if I have to sacrifice.

She is kind and she is great
I wouldn't stop or even take a break

She gives me her love and even her trust
She  is respectful and sometimes likes to laugh

Lastly she is there and always has my back.
She will always keep me on track.

Finding our way around Ruapotaka

Orienteering was fun for everyone. Learning about the symbols on a map, how to use a map, how to read a map and following north, south, east and west were all apart of orienteering. We always looked forward to our lesson with Leon because we were able to find controls all around Ruapotaka school.

We were learning how to read a map.

Following directions and finding our way.

We found a control and found ourselves in the corner of the multi-purpose room.

Liza learning how to read a map and find her way.

Asking Leon questions.

Still following our maps.

Learning about what orienteering is before we head out into the field.

A Day At The Zoo

We have been learning about predators and preys. We were very fortunate to see the awesome animals at the zoo especially because we have learned a lot about whether they are hunted or the hunters.

All we had to do was observe how the animals acted. We noticed different things including their interaction with other animals. How they treated each other.

The lion den was a class favourite!

The otters were sleeping most of the time but we were able to catch a glimpse of them at one point.

Giraffe drinking water.

These baboons were also a favourite. This was more funny behavior displayed by the baboons.

The seal was awesome. In this beautiful blue home we were able to see the seal swim and eat food.
