Maori Art

In Room 5 we did some Maori art. We had to pick a drawing from Peter Gossage. He is a Maori artist and draws in the Maori legend stories. I did the Maori moon.  We coloured them in with pastels and then dyed the background. I also did some stars behind the moon. Here is mine.

Water Filter Experiments

In Room 5 we did a science experiment. We made water filters. Hannah and I were buddies. There were 4 items. Cotton balls, sand, paper towels and bark. We had to put dirty water into our filters and watch it go through to the other cup. Me and Hannah picked cotton balls and paper towels. You had to try to make it clean. Whoever got the cleanest water wins five dojo points. Our one was one of the best but we just missed out of winning. Here is our filter.

Descriptive Writing

In Room 5 we did some descriptive writing. We went to a website to pick a picture that is based on winter. Here is mine. 

I wake up in the morning to the beautiful sunrise.
Eager to get outside and play with the powdery snow.
Making my way outside I leave footprints behind.
The lovely steamy fog makes it hard to see things.
Icy, cold snow slowly melts in my hand.
My hands are all toasty in my gloves.
I love all the fun making snowmen, doing snowball fights and playing football in the magical snow. I lie in the snow, looking up at the soft fluffy clouds.
Watch the leafless trees swaying around in the strong chilly breeze.
The snow days are awesome.

Country Research

This week we did a country research. We got to chose a country to learn about. I chose Sweden. We had to find out things like what the flag means, where it is on the world map, clothes, food and sports. Did you know that Sweden speaks four languages - Swedish, Yiddish, Finnish and Romani. Here is my research.
