Pool Picnic

Last week on Wednesday the 18th me and my school went for a pool picnic to the Panmure pools. That pool is one of my favourite pools because it has a hydro slide, a diving board, it also has a pool  for adults. It has crystal clear water, it is clean, and it is well looked after. You can go there on a hot summer day. It is just fabulous. My mum and dad go to the gym I get to go and have a swim. Its a place where I can go and chill that is why it is my favorite pools. Last of all it has a pool for children.

When I was there, I could hear kids having  fun. I was sitting in a corner listening to the water trickling down into the pools. I could also hear kids screaming and teachers shouting. I could also hear kids splashing around.  It was so loud that I had to cover my ears but it  just got louder.

I felt like the pool was  just about big enough for the whole school to fit in. I also felt excited and fantastic when I played in the fountain. I had fun swimming with my friends. When  the sun came out it shield my eyes. The waves also followed me  around and tossed me about. When I got out of the pool I started to shiver  because It was cold.

I had a Fantastic day and I cant wait  to come  again with my family.

My recount of Pool Picnic Day

My recount of Pool Picnic Day

One day my school went to a school picnic day at Panmure pools.First we went on the bus and I nearly fell asleep but when we got there I woke up. Then we got off the bus. We went inside and changed from our school uniform to our togs. After that we went swimming and all the people that had payed $3 extra got to go on the hydro slide. After that we had lunch.The people had a small pool for children and a big pool for bigger kids. After lunch we had free time and I went on the hydro slide. The water was so clear and so clean that I could see the floor. In the hydro slide I could hear screaming and a lot of echoes. Sometimes I sat in a corner and I could hear kids having fun and the water trickling and people laughing because they said jokes and they were funny. The pool was big enough for Tamaki Primary. The sun was hot and I shield my eyes. When the sun came into my eyes. I screamed at the top of my voice when I was in the hydro slide. Some of my friends got hurt from the hydro slide. I enjoyed my day.

Hamish in Room 5 loves to weave after he has finished his work in class. He is making a small dining mat for his mum. Today he completed his weaving and was very excited to present it to his mother.

Learning Place values

Learning Place values was fun when we used different equipment like blocks and  tens frames. Tiare and Taonga went all creative and could show the place value of a number using dices.
