Slinky Malinki


 Slinky Malinki was very extraordinary. He was blacker than black and he had golden eyes. In the night he was fiendish, wicked and cruel. He stole sausages, slippers and more galore!

Museum trip

On Tuesday we went on a bus to the museum. When we got to the museum I had a red face. When we got to the museum I went to the Kai room and I ate some chips we explored the museum. Then we went to the t-Rex room and then stop all and my mum was at the body docter red spots.

What makes a kite fly?

We wrote this piece of writing together as a class.
What makes a kite fly?

There are four forces that affect a kite when it is flying. They are gravity, lift, thrust, and drag.

Gravity is the force that keeps us on the ground. The heavier a kite is the harder it is to fly.

Lift is the force pushing the kite off the ground. Lift happens when air moves over the top of the kite at a faster speed than the air that is moving under the bottom of the kite.

The force that makes a kite move through the air is called thrust. Thrust happens with a kite when it is held in one place by its string, while the wind flows around the kite.

As air flows over the kite the wind gets held back a little by the roughness of the fabric. This friction is called drag.

Magical Matariki


What is Matariki?

Matariki is the  name for the Maori new year and the name of the seven stars. The 7 stars of magnificent Matariki disappear from the sky in April. They come back in early June. It is the start of the Maori new year. Just forgive and forget the people who have made us sad. We catch kai moana and make kites.
