Michel Mulipola





This week on Tuesday a special guest came to Ruapotaka school. His name was Michel Mulipola. He is a wrestler, a illustrator and a professional game player. The surprising thing about Michel Mulipola is that he published his first book when he was only six years old. My favourite thing about Michel Mulipola was that he illustrated one of the books my reading group read. The book my reading group read that Michel Mulipola illustrated was the book in the middle. It was amazing.






Michel Mulipola is a great artist but I learnt that when he draws something he doesn't like it when he draws. He said that while he's drawing he sees there are mistakes and when draws again hes going to be better than he did before. It was a great time meeting Michel Mulipola!

Great Trip To The Zoo


Last week on Friday my classroom went to the zoo to look at prey and predator animals. At the zoo we went over to where the the flamingos were, and I saw that they were standing on one leg. Well I learnt that flamingos stand on one leg while they are sleeping. Also I learnt about when a giraffe eats something hot it's tongue turns purple and a blue colour. My favourite animal I saw at the zoo was a red panda because they look so fluffy I would pat it. I had a great time going to the zoo!

Financial Literacy


On week three on Thursday room 9 and room 10 had Financial Literacy. At first I didn't know what Financial Literacy was but now I know.  There were three girls called Mona, Jordan and Michelle who did Financial Literacy. At Financial Literacy I learnt about saving money, trustworthiness, identity, risks, insurance and other fun things.

My favourite thing that we did at Financial Literacy was the skits, because it was really fun when some people got to present their skit. Also I liked it when we learnt about saving money and I learnt about insurance.


 I had a fun time at Financial Literacy and I had a great time meeting Mona, Jordan and Michelle.

Gloop

On Wednesday for reading, my reading group read a story about gloop. In the story the classroom were sitting in a circle and had a squidgy. Squidgy is the classrooms talking stick. One morning when the students came in they saw squidgy's skin popped out. The teacher decided to make gloop. Next week my reading group will be making gloop next week on Monday!

The ingredients to make gloop are:
  1.  2 cups of PVA glue
  2. 1\2 cup of cold water
  3. A few drops of food colouring or dye
  4. 2 tablespoons of soap flakes
  5. 1 cup of boiling water

Orienteering

On Tuesday room 9 had orienteering
with Leon. It was exciting because I didn't know what orienteering was before. Last week on Tuesday room 9 went outside and had a paper that had letters on it. The awful thing was when, I was looking for the letter j and I was right next to it but I decided to walk until I found it. Suddenly I found the letter j but I passed it so I had to run all the way again until I got to the letter j. Orienteering was so much fun and I can't wait to do it again!
