Aroha and Whanau

Aroha in my whanau

I love my whanau because they care for me. I love my dad because he works hard so he can send money for lunches at school. Another thing about my dad is that he is a builder, so if something is broken he comes to our house and fixes it, but that was when he lived in New Zealand.

My mum is awesome and a great mum. She is the best nurse I’ve ever met because if I get hurt she helps me. Actually she helps anyone in our family.

I help mum do the cooking and cleaning and I know she appreciates it alot. I love my little brother and he gets excited when I play with him outside. We love one another.

My favourite whanau saying is: Family comes first.”

Revealing my feelings through Art

A few weeks ago this term I created a self portrait. I had to draw my self and it was so hard. The first things I drew were my eyes, nose, eye brows and mouth. Then I added my hair. After that I coloured my face and hair. I got to do my white T-shirt last.

After my self portrait I did my background which was using a white wax crayon on a white paper. I had to do some lines for my feelings and when I was done I dyed it blue.

After I dyed my background I went to my writing book and wrote some feeling with actions. The next day Mrs. Agnew asked us to choose three of our favourite feeling blurbs. My blurb I want to share is "When I feel calm, I breathe in and out."

Chicks in Room 6

Today day is the eleventh day of having the eleven chicks in our classroom. They are leaving after morning tea and Jo will be taking them back to the farm to see their mum and dad ( I think it is their first time to see them.) My favourite thing was when I held them because they were so so soft and cuddly. 
It was so sad to see the chicks go :(  I miss the chicks and I wish I could go and hold them one more time.  I wonder if we will ever get to have chicks again.

My new dictionary

Yesterday Mrs
Kearns and her friend Carol came to our school and gave all year 4's new Dictionaries. It was so exciting . 20,000 children in New Zealand, Tonga and Samoa got dictionaries last year from the Rotary Club.  They said they have been coming to Saint Patrick's for ten years. I think we are very lucky to get new Dictionaries to help us with our learning.

The Best Day of My Life

                       The Best Day of My Life

During the holidays my baby cousin came to my house. Me, my mum, my baby brother and baby cousin went to the park close by. 

We had so much fun running around and playing on the swings and slides. The little kids were laughing and laughing. They kept asking for more.

Later we went to the shop. We bought some food. It was ice cream which melted down my throat. It was so yummy and just what I needed after all that playing. 

After that we went back to my aunty’s house and we were all happy but also very tired. It was such a fun day.
