See a need, Fill a need- Ella











This term we are working on See a need ,Fill a need. My group saw the need of Christmas gifts. We came up with the idea of boats for our brothers. I was the co-captain. We started making mini furniture for our parents  but did not get much time. We thought that this was a great idea so we wouldn't waste money. We am very proud of what we did for technology. Here I am with one of the boats that I made.

The old forest

Once what we
thought it was
now it is nothing.
All smashed and broken.

All you see is a mess.
Planks are everywhere.
They are old, broken
and they are nothing. 

Bushes, trees are falling to
the ground.

Ella's production comment 29.6.15


My most challenging moment in the production was not to get distracted by the smaller kids who were watching our production. I managed it but it was hard at parts. I thought being in under the sea was really great. We learnt a great dance and I loved being a fish. Everyone practised it so it looked quite awesome. Thank you   Mrs  Strathern for teaching us an amazing dance.

Ella's speech 2015

Have you ever wondered how books can change the world? Well I think they can.

Fiction books can teach what not to do,say,or believe in. Books can teach you about the world and yourself They can also make you wiser. Some books can provide information such as.....whatever.

Now let's stop talking about that and get onto the non fiction an fiction. Non fictions can teach you facts and they even say you're wrong sometimes. Fiction books are there for enjoyment not you have to read this! Books also serve as a compass or guide.

Did you know that books can be so good that they can be so good that they can stop you in your tracks that cut through to your soul. But the real question is can they change the world? When you are reading you are never alone. Reading can make you believe in some things that are not real such as fairies,giants and whatever else you can imagine. Reading is a lifeline to all else that is.

So just remember books can change the world.

Ella's camp story

           Surfing

At camp we went surfing. We learnt how to surf properly. I had a lot of fun learning to surf. I found out that I was okay at surfing. It was exciting and scary at the same time. It took me  about 8 surfs to be able to stand up properly. Surfing was actually a bit hard as well. Here I am before we got our wet suits on. Here I am having a go at surfing. It was lots of fun.
