The final product is on its way....

Here are some pieces of writing written by Dream Team learners. Can you guess which feeling the writing is showing?

1. I was panting like a dog. I felt like I was cooked in a oven. I had a drenched hairline down my sweating face. My bright red face felt like it was on fire. There was sweat dripping down the back of my head.I was Gasping for breath.I couldn't walk because the ground felt like laver. My eyes were on fire they almost melted.

2.His big eyes burst out. His mouth was down.  His jaw dropped down. His was looking at the toys! He burst! It was a dream. His eyes were on fire and won’t even blink.

3. My stomach  was rumbling' I was starving I pictured  what I wanted to eat' My tummy is 4th screaming I  was  dribbling' Can I have more money' My  stomach  was Hurting

I was feeling sick. my stomach was empty it needed energy.

Marae learning

This afternoon we were challenged to see how we know about marae visiting by matching keywords to their meanings. Once we had a real good try we then checked and discussed the words with the class. 


Today we brainstormed words to start learning and practicing during literacy. Great ideas Dream Team. Remember you can learn words at home too.

J.K.Rowling Blogging

J.K.Rowling Weekly Blog Post

Once a week you need to post one thing you did in your literacy plan that fits one of these:
- something you are proud of
-something you found challenging but you worked hard on
-something you learnt

Your blog post must have the following:
  1. A blog title
  2. A description explaining what you did including one of the above criteria
During literacy on Tuesday, I found WOW Wall Word Bricks very challenging. I want to find a word or sentence from a book that would make everyone say “WOW”. I read through the Dr Seuss books but couldn’t find anything. I then used the class novel ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ and had success! See the picture for my success.

  1. A picture of your work
  2. A picture of where on your plan you did this. e.g. highlighted so it is easy to spot
  3. Labeled as: Literacy

This is Juliette demonstrating what we need to do when we do Fast Words with the help of the key ring words.

Round 1: read ALL of the words on the key ring

Round 2: Put 5 of the words in a sentence
Round 3: Write words in a sentence

If you come to words you have trouble with ask for help and then make sure you write the word in your spelling notebook to practice reading and writing.

Well done Juliette for reminding everyone what to do for all 3 rounds.


Today we shared our fantastic swimming learning with our buddies.
First we had to explain to our buddy exactly what we are currently working on. 
We watched carefully and gave each other feedback.

We are so proud of our swimming progress! We are real fish!
