Dino Assembly

Dinosaurs are really big lizard like animals that are now extinct.

On the first day of term 2, we had an amazing immersion assembly and learnt about our new topic which is 'Dino-Might'. (It's about dinosaurs)

Mr Burt and the teachers all dressed up in costumes and did little items about our topic. Team One had a really cool one about how dinosaurs are extinct but teacher's are'nt. Team Two did a cool rap and dance about dinosaurs. Team Three were dressed like scientists and pretended to search for dinosaur bones.

Mrs Nua from Team Four, talked about the section in the library where we could find books about dinosaurs. The number was 560. Then we watched a video clip of Team Four.

Some dinosaurs are herbivores (eat plants) and some are carnivores (meat eaters). They were all different shapes and sizes and now they are extinct. I'm really excited that we are going to be studying about dinosaurs and learning more about them.

Easter and the Easter Show

Easter is very special and cool. Its special because that was the day that Jesus rose from the grave, and it's cool because we have so many lucky things to do and get.

There's the Royal Easter Show where there are some activities, great games and some cool competitions. If you won at any of these things you would win some awesome prizes!! I didn't go to the Easter show but I'm sure there was a ton or more than a ton of people that went to the show.

If you're a chocoholic then Easter would be your thing. We had a terrific day on Saturday. My aunty put out 3 Easter eggs for me, my sister and my cousin. She hid them and we had our own Easter egg hunt. I always found the first 2 and my sister found the last one. The best part was eating it.

Easter is full of love and chocolate!! I can't wait until the next Easter, next year in 2010.

Hong Kong Video Conference

  It was very awesome having another conference to do, especially the conference is from the other side of the world.

  The extension group was lucky enough to have a conference with some people of Hong Kong!!  We were discussing stuff about what they (Hong Kong) usually eat or what their favourite foods were.  We were discussing this because it was part of the ROW (Rock Our World) topic project that we're doing.  But we were also just doing this to just find more about their country.

  Mrs Tele'a was setting everything up waiting for the other side to send an invite so we could get on with the conference.  A few minutes later we received the invite and the show was on the road.  There was a problem though, we could see them but they couldn't see us we could only hear them.  So then we just decided to go on without them being able to see us.

  It was very funny because while we were waiting for the invite , they  were taking so long because they had been in their school assembly!! We found it hilarious.

  Anyway it turned out that the conference taken a whole hour.  But I actually really enjoyed it.
