Thank you for your comment. Archery was fun and it was painful as well. It took some time to get the shot at the target but I had a go. A lot of people got the target.

Thank you for your comment. We do not have i-pods that we are allowed to use in class but if we bring them to school they have to go to our school office. Do you all have to do that as well?

Hi Zaeleh

Thank you for your wonderful comment. It was a bit tricky doing Tuatara chalk pastel art because you had to try not smudge the pastel but we had a wet wipes that made it a lot easier.

My favourite art would have to be the Tuatara chalk pastel art because it was fun using different colours.

What is your favourite art you have completed in your class?

Hi room 6.
It sounds like your term has started off really well. In room 12 our topic is kitchen chemistry. We have been doing cool science experiments to see if a substance is an acid or an alkaline. An alkaline is a liquid with a PH higher than 7.
What was the best thing about last term?

Thank you for your comment. I was the person who went to America. My family and I went for a family holiday. We stayed in America for three weeks. The ice cream sundae was much bigger than we expected it to be. The Disney market was amazing. It was filled with loads of shops to explore.
What would be your dream holiday?

Thanks for your excellent comment. Did you enjoy doing archery? We used a target, real money notes and balloons. If you shot a balloon you would be in a draw to win prizes too.

We are finding the ipads really cool. We are the only class in the school with them so isn't that great. Our class has ten of them and we also have ipad groups.
I hope your school gets ipads one day.

Bye for now from Brandon.

10/28/2013 4:06pm

Hi Lucy
Thank you for your comment. We love having i-pads because there is a lot of awesome stuff we can do. Did you know we can even quad blog to our quad blogging classes? At first it wasn’t really easy for some people because they wanted to get straight into it but we couldn’t because we had to know what the rules were.

Thanks for your phenomenal comment. I know we are so lucky to have archery for a day at our school. It is really cool that your sister has a bow and arrow. That means you can practise all the time ( if your sister lets you.)

We were pretty excited when we heard we were doing archery. I thought the seniors were the only ones doing it because it might have been dangerous. Is your sister good at archery? Are you good at archery?

Hi Sam. Thanks for your comment. I don't really understand what you are talking about so I’m just going to talk about our weebly. We try to get everything up there but sometimes we are too busy. As a class we love it when we put up work and people comment. It’s neat when people tell their families because then we get a lot of nice comments. It makes our weebly page a great place to visit.
