Tamarereti Animation

We have been learning the story of Tamarereti. Here is my animation I made with Hyperstudio.

Beside Lake Taupo was a village. In the lake there lived a scary Taniwha who would eat people when it was dark. There were no stars in the sky at night - which made night time very dangerous.

One day Tamarereti went fishing in his waka and he was blown by the wind to the other side of the lake.
After a long sleep, the sky was dark. Tamarereti was afraid of the Taniwha - but he had an idea.
On the beach lay many shiny pebbles. He gathered the pebbles. Tamarereti threw the pebbles into the night sky where they became stars.

Now the sky was too bright for the Taniwha and he stayed hidden.

Tamarereti made it safely home again.

It had been raining for 2 days. There  was a puddle it was outside the classroom

Ms King said “Who wants to go into the puddle?”  everyone shouted “Yes” Then I got changed and I ran down into the puddle. I slid into the puddle. Then me and Brendon slid  then Brendon pretended  to be a girl.

Miss King counted down to let us know to  go Inside. Then all of us ran back to class where we dried ourselves

I felt so good even though the grass hurt.

Forces on a Kite

Gravity is the force that pulls everything down to the earth. Gravitational force pulls everything to the centre of the earth. The bigger the mass, the larger the gravitational force. Without gravity we would all float off into space.

Drag is the force that slows the movement of an object through air or water. As a moving object pushes the water and air out of the way, the water or air pushes back on the object. This drag force is always opposite to the way the object is moving. The drag force increases as the object moves faster.

Thrust is the force that moves an object. When flying a kite, the thrust comes from wind. The thrust must be stronger than the drag to make the object move.
In a plane, thrust comes from your legs.

Lift is the upwards force on the kite. Lift is created by air flowing around the kite. The different speeds of the air flowing around the kite make it lift into the air.

Long ago the sky was dark and had no stars.
Deep in Lake Taupo lived a scary taniwha who ate people when it was dark. One day Tamarereti woke up he felt really hungry. Tamarereti went out fishing and caught lots of fish. He fell asleep and his waka drifted to the other side of Lake Taupo.
Tamarereti was hungry so he cooked his fish. It was dark and he was scared of the taniwha, but he had an idea. On the beach lay many shiny pebbles.
Tamarereti gathered as many pebbles as he could hold and set off in his waka.  As he sailed back to his village, Tamarereti threw the shiny pebbles into the sky where they settled to become the stars of Matariki.

Beach Trip

My class and I changed into our mufti clothes because we were going to the beach. The weather was so rainy.
Then me and Teejay we found clay and we played clay wars. Smack I got Lee. Then Caleb threw clay and it got me. I started to find some crabs. Lee found a little spider crab and I put the crab in the bucket, so we could make sure the crabs did not get out.

It was time to go we were rolling on the grassy bank to get the clay off us. Then we all went back to school.
