Dot Dye Painting by Natasha

We did dye dot painting . Before I started I put on a apron so my uniform wont get dirty. I am using red and blue and I splodge the colours on to the paper. We made lots of them to put on the wall to decorate the classroom. 

We also dyed our desk covers. For the desk cover I use lots different colours and after the dye dried we cut out the pictures and put them up on the wall too it was fun.

Splodge by Brennan

We did a painting it is called splodge and we used a syringe to push the colours out onto the paper. We did not  just use one colour we used lots of different colours on one paper. I enjoyed squirting the paint out of the syringe onto the paper.

Fun with Dye by Allan

We have been creating a bit of art  to brighten our class room up. We have also have been doing Dye Dot painting for the walls in the class room. Before we started that piece of art work we put down the tarpaulin.For the Dye Dot painting we used a syringe. We also have been working on our comic picture desk cover and dying it with different colours. We have been really busy doing this for the class room. It was very hard when I had to bend down and do the dye dot painting because I have long legs. With the desk covers I just painted  up and down with the brushes.

Stencil Art by Nathan

I am wearing  a apron to protect my uniform from the paint while I  am preparing the board for my stencil.  It looked amazing when I sprayed the stencil of my head onto it.

Breaking the Ball Barrier by Bradley

On Tuesday the 11th of March, we went to the Tamaki Recreation Centre to watch the famous NZ Breakers. When we first entered the gym, there were a lot of students from other schools including Sommerville Special School sitting along the sides of the basketball court. The students were eagerly waiting for the basketball team to come in.

While we were waiting for the players to come, one of the people who organized the event picked a few volunteers to play a game. They were challenged to shoot a basketball into the hoop, if they got the ball through the hoop, they would win the ball. Among some of those picked were Aidan and Nathan, and they were very happy that they won.

When the NZ Breakers arrived, some of the students from other schools who were there were chosen to have a go at playing against the Breakers, including Allan and Fynn from our class. At the end of the games, despite losing against the players, the students were very happy they had played against a famous basketball team.

After playing the games against the Breakers, we played another game in which the students had to decide whether one of the Breakers players would either miss the basketball hoop or  manage to get the ball into the hoop.

At the end of the session, each student received a handbook that explained about the biography of the NZ Breakers. We were really excited when we were given a chance to get autographs signed by the players themselves.

It was a very memorable day for the students to watch the players up close and to have a taste of what it is like to play with a famous team.

Fun at Athletics by Allan

I enjoyed coming second in the 200m race. I was really fast when I ran in my 200m race. I also enjoyed shot put and softball throw. I came first in both.
I brought my camera from home to take pictures of the races that my friends were in. I got pictures of Fynn and Aidan with their ribbons around their necks. I got Fynn's mum Annie to get a picture of me and Fynn and Aidan. I was really excited on that day when I came second, but my mum had to soak the ribbon in a cup of water because my bottle of Powerade was open. I showed my mum, my dad and my brother and they were very happy because of all my ribbons.

Getting Better by Natasha

We learned to play Badminton in the gym. We first tried to balance the shuttlecock on the racquet. Then we practised holding the racquet down and hitting the shuttlecock towards the ceiling. I chose a partner and practised hitting the shuttlecock over the net. It was hard hitting the shuttlecock over the net, but I got it after a while.  We played who could hit the shuttlecock the furthest. Then we had a competition to play against  another team. Me and Allan played against Vikki and Brennan. Me and Allan won the game. I am getting good at Badminton and I can’t wait to play Badminton next week and it will be one of my favourite sports.         


Today we learnt about April Fools Day

Today we learnt about April Fools Day

April Fools' Day (sometimes called All Fools' Day) is celebrated on 1 April every year. It is not a national holiday, but is widely recognized and celebrated in various countries as a day when people play practical jokes and hoaxes on each other called April fools.

We played practical jokes on each other

It was very funny when I went to Val's class to ask for "Free Money." Val laughed and she said I don't have any free money but I have free lollies. By Natasha

It was funny when someone had stolen our chairs. We had to sit or lay down on the floor. By Vikki

It took us a long time to find them

All of Edgewater College had a fire drill. 

We had to evacuate the building.

There was no fire!

I really liked it when Bradley said the soap was empty and fooled Kevin. By Allan

It was jokes. I thought it was amazing. By Nathan.

I liked it when I went to Val's class to ask for "Free Money" it made me laugh. By Brenann.

Well done Kevin. You pranked me from when I got out of the taxi. Since you pranked me I started to set off a chain of pranks by myself. By Bradley
