Hikau about softball

WALT: Identify syllables.
SC: Write a Haiku poem about softball.
First we practiced by finding out how many syllables were in our names.
I have 4 syllables in my name AL-EX-AN-DER

We just play’d softball
I missed the ball that they threw
Each person hit it

I swung the bat hard
Some people hit the ball
Our team was losing

We got people out
We wore comfortable gloves

We play’d on the field

Alex & Malulu how to choose a muesli bar.

I learnt that it is good to look at the labels of the bars that you eat.So you can see the amount of energy, fibre, fat and whole grain and I learnt that some bars are good for you and some bars are bad.

Alex_Mmm, That's Tasty!_

Question: Do our taste buds require smell?

I think you won’t be able to taste the flavour with your nose blocked.When you unblock your nose you will be able to taste the flavour more.

  1. Jelly beans.
  2. Blind fold.
  3. A nose.
  4. Hands.
  5. A mouth

  1. Close your eyes.
  2. Pinch your nose shut with your finger and thumb.
  3. Put the jelly bean in your mouth and chew.
  4. Tell someone what you taste.
  5. Unblock your nose.
  6. Taste and record again.

Siosifa covered his eyes and then he pinched his nose shut and chewed the jelly bean.He chewed the jelly bean and tasted pineapple.He told me and I recorded his answer.He unlocked his nose and tasted lime.

My hypothesis was kind of correct because you could taste the flavour more when your nose was unblocked.It was also wrong because could taste the flavour when your nose was blocked.

Why we need 8 hours of sleep

Our bodies need 8 hours of sleep because that is how our brains rest. Some people need more sleep than 8 hours and some people need less.

Sleep is good for you because it helps our bodies grow.Sleep helps your body grow taller and stronger. If we do not sleep our bodies won’t be repaired for the next day. When you sleep it looks like you are dead but actually your heart and kidneys are still pumping blood.

It is important to get sleep because when you are sleeping the repairing process happens. This how broken bones heal. If you don’t get enough sleep you becoming grumpy and lazy because your body hasn't had enough time to repair your body.

So in conclusion,sleep is very important in life.Sleep helps you in different ways,it makes you taller and stronger,heals broken bones and cuts and it also repairs your entire body.

  1. What do you think… Is sweet corn a fruit or a vegetable?

I think sweet corn is a fruit because on page 26 it defines fruit as the sweet and fleshy product of a tree or other plant that contains seeds and can be eaten as food.

What could we do to keep our fruit box fruit fresher longer?Store it and a container that is cold & open the lid so the fruit can get fresh air.

What do you notice about the fruit in our fruit box? The fruit in the fruit box rots fast.

How I spent my time in the holidays explanation-Alex

The holidays are a two week holiday when we don’t go to school. It is a chance to visit your family and friends and do house chores.

We have holidays to spend time with family and relax. People relax by sleeping or watching tv. People spend their time in the holidays different to other people.

I usually woke up around 11:00. Then I went  downstairs and ate breakfast. Next I went upstairs and had a shower and brushed my teeth. Then I went outside and played soccer with my brothers. After playing soccer I went inside and watched cartoons until I got bored.

I spent the last week of the holidays watching television,playing outside or playing games on my playstation 3. On the last day of the holidays I went to church in the morning and came home and watched tv.

I really enjoyed the holidays because I got to relax and spend more time with my family.
