Myztique Two many possums

WALT: Find and use relevant parts of the text to accurately answer questions.
                                             I've learnt that possums are a problem in New Zealand because possums harm trees and plants.The trees and plants stop growing and die.There are fewer berries and flowers for the birds to eat.The birds have fewer places to build their nests. Also possums can get disease that they can pass on to cattles and deer.The farm animals can die. people use poison traps to try to catch and kill the possums and protect the forest and farmland.

Hokulea and Hikianalia writing

Do you know what Hokulea and Hikianalia is? Well yesterday pt england school went down to pt england reserv to watch a waka come towards us. When we got there we sang a song called E oho. We had to repeat it four times then a man told us what it is but before that they sang a song for us. When we heard about the hokulea and hikianalia we got excited. They are one of the most explorers in the whole world they are amazing and once the sang us all a song we wanted to hear them again. But all of the schools had a good and fun time.

1 day until camp

Yay! camp starts tomorrow morning for the year 6&5. Tomorrow i am looking forward to Kayaking,Table tennis and concert practise. I look forward to kayaking because we get to go around the sighs at the beach and I’m excited to play table tennis because people can laugh at each other and because it’s my favourite game to. The best part what i really love is the concert practise because we get to say our chant as many times as we want so we can get use to it and i’m in trew crews with Mr Bax.

Catching Mustelids 2

WALT: Use clues from the text to read and understand new words

 Each trap has a small hole that is just big enough to let the mustelid slip through to get at the bait. It goes into the trap and - wham. A big metal arm drops down and sqaushes the mustelids.

 Have you ever been to Omaru creek before? Well last Thursday my maths class went to the omaru creek near glen innes pools before lunch. When we got there we sat down with other schools and waited until it started.
