W.A.L.T. use adjectives to describe our face and features.
Some of us started on the activities we like too. Bevan even shared a family anecdote or story.
Drift has a round face. He has short brown hair. He likes going fishing and skateboarding with his brother
My face is like a circle. My hair is black. I like painting my dog’s kennel.
I see I have straight eyebrows It can be cool to maybe be big. I like to play handball with my big sister.
Bevan has a round face. He has got short black hair. Bevan has upside down tick eyebrows.
Once my little brother took my Mum’s lipstick and he drew on Mum’s dress. Then my mum gave him a growling. Then he had to help me do my lawn mowing work. He raked up the grass.

Vaughan has a round face and he has golden hair. He is skinny and has brown skin. He has green and blue eyes with upside down tick eyebrows.
We are learning about our identity. Here's our writing model it shows how to list favourite activities and how to write about our proudest moment. Of course all of the children have different activities and proudest moments. This part of our  autobiography we will add it to to our self-portrait.

The B reading group were learning to follow instructions. We designed our own plans using the instructions in our reader "Jake's Plane'. Then we went outside to test them. 
The orange plane flew up high and looped back.
We had to take aim and throw the plane into the sky. It was tricky because we didn't know if our planes would fly.
Oh, no it's going the wrong way.
It was fun flying our planes. We all did a great job of following instructions - all of our planes flew.
Room 9 walked up to Monument Hill to explore our local environment

It was a steep climb.

We stopped to look at the Monument.

We could see lots of places from up the top of Monument Hill.

We explored the puriri tree.

We found some ripe blackberrries. Mr Wi picked some.

Just for fun we squashed the whole class on and around the seat for a photol

We found some slaters.

It was time to go back - can you see Kaikohe West School?
