Museum trip

Last week team 2 went to the museum. First room 26 went to the lesson room. We got to eat then we put our bags in the cage. I ate a chicken avocado sandwich. We left the Kai room. Kohatu and I went up the elevator. I saw a t-Rex and I saw a lobster. I saw a buffalo, a whale, a bear and a sea dinosaur. 
After that we had a ta moko and I got a kiwi. The teachers taught us how to make a ipu then we wrapped the ipu up.
Finally it was time to go. So I put on my shoes and I went on the bus back to school.
I felt joyful because it was so interesting.

What makes a kite fly?

 
We wrote this piece of writing together as a class.
What makes a kite fly?

There are four forces that affect a kite when it is flying. They are gravity, lift, thrust, and drag.


Gravity is the force that keeps us on the ground. The heavier a kite is the harder it is to fly.

Lift is the force pushing the kite off the ground. Lift happens when air moves over the top of the kite at a faster speed than the air that is moving under the bottom of the kite.

The force that makes a kite move through the air is called thrust. Thrust happens with a kite when it is held in one place by its string, while the wind flows around the kite.

As air flows over the kite the wind gets held back a little by the roughness of the fabric. This friction is called drag.

Magical Matariki



What is Matariki?

Matariki is about the 7 stars in the dark night. It is also the name for the Maori New Year. The 7 stars appear in late May or early June. When they come out it is the start of the Maori New Year. We celebrate Matariki in lots of ways. The Maori people use the stars to find their way home. They didn’t have any maps or phones in the past. They plant crops. They fish for Kai moana and weave too.
