Look at all the measurement words we know after learning about different types of measurement. Miss Galbraith is so impressed!

Yesterday we went on a trip. It was fun. First I went to Onepoto Domain. It was very foggy. Onepoto Domain is extinct. Extinct means that its never going to erupt again. We saw some volcanic rocks. There was a lake, and a playground but we weren't allowed to go on it. Next we went to Auckland Museum. We watched Rangitoto erupting, but it was a video. Rangitoto is a shield volcano. That means it has sloping sides, is very big and is a cone volcano. We got to do the drums with a rock it sounded like bang bang bang. We looked at the World War 1 objects and then looked at the hall of memories. After that we went to Mount Eden. We looked at the rocks and it was called scoria. We walked around the crater. My leader was called Fern and that was the end of my story.

Tomorrow we're off on a trip across Auckland! Our day will include visits to two volcanic sites; Onepoto Domain and Maungawhau. We will also visit Auckland War Memorial Museum (which sits atop an extinct volcanic crater!) to learn more about volcanoes. While we're there we will also find out about Anzac Day, walking through the Hall of Memories to help us comprehend the huge loss of life that resulted from WW1.
Keep an eye out for pictures, arriving here soon!

Retold by Divij
Once upon a time Maui pulled a huge fish called Te Ika A Maui. Soon the fish settled and became the North Island of New Zealand. There stood 5 mountains. Tongariro was the chief of the mountains. Taranaki was not happy of Tongariro being the chief. The smaller mountains Tauhara and Putauki were frowning at mighty Tongariro. Soon they began battling. Mighty Tongariro rushed by throwing hot lava but the smaller mountains Tauhara and Putauki were throwing lava at Tongariro. After several days the battle stopped and Tongariro won, the other mountains shifted. Taranaki moved to the west coast. Tauhara was just looking back to Pihanga and Putauki reached the end of the lake.

The Aye Aye is hairy. Its eyes are as yellow as the sun. It climbs on trees. I think its hands are as good as a monkeys. Its nose is pink. Its fur is as black and white as a cow. I think its tail is
long. Its ears look as nice as a shell. It has black around its eyes.
