The Secret World of the Dust Mite

First we had to read a book about dust mites then fill in this slide.

West Cost Hockey

 This is a piece of writing I did for the news letter.


Last weekend Jess and her West Coast Under 13 Hockey team drove up to Nelson to compete in a tournament.

They had 2 games. The first game was against Nelson at 9am and then Marlborough at 12pm. In the first game against Nelson, west Coast lost 6-1.  This was partly because West Coast were a much smaller and less experienced team.   In the second game, because the West Coast team knew what to expect, they had better teamwork and they managed to defend well, drawing the  game 1-1.  

West Coast travelled with only one sub which meant that although a couple of players got hurt, they kept on playing.

In the end the team really enjoyed it.  The tournament will help them improve for the next tournaments in Christchurch later this month.

Persuasive Writing

We have been learning how to structure a piece of persuasive writing.  We learnt about stating our position in the introduction, putting our three reasons in the main part of our writing and then summing it up in the conclusion.

Here is my first attempt at a piece of persuasive writing:

I think we should have some more science at lunch.

At lunch time at Kumara School we get bored so I am asking if we can do some science.

Firstly science is another learning thing. We do not do enough at Kumara School so we won't be ready for high School.

Secondly science can help you in life because if we get asked some questions we know how to answer them.

Lastly science is heaps of fun and we can do it at home.

Kumara School would appreciate it if you could let us have science at lunchtimes.  It is another learning thing and it can help you in life also it is heaps of fun.
