Middles Swimming Carnival by Simaima

One sunny day at Sunnybrae pool there were kids sitting on chairs at the side of the pool. They were wearing sunhats.  All of the kids were in swimming togs.They also had numbers on their hand too. When ever Miss Roger called out numbers, the boys and girls went walking to line up at the side of the pool. When they hopped inside the fresh blue water Miss Roger used the clapper to start the race. When they touched the end of the pool they gott out and stood on the side so the parents could clap.

Middles Swimming Carnival



''  On your marks get set BOOM'',went the clapper,in nanosecond the smooth,calm water
had become froth and spit like jets of water shooting everywhere ,just like a sailors worst nightmare! Everybodys legs were going thwack,thwack,thwak,arms were churning the water to  pale white spit like bullets from a machine guns!About thirty seconds later,the five contestants were hauling themselves out of the pool.Then,the crowd went wild with yelling and screaming like maniacs!It felt like a mini earthquake the noise was so deafening.That same thing happened 8 times!And  about 3 billion bullets of froth and spit.Finally the swimming carnival ended,and a few minutes later all the year 4 students were packing up their chairs and trudging back to class.

Catherine's Quick Write

My imaginary pet would be a bunny with a crown on its head and it could talk and do homework. I would bring it to school and I could play with it because it would be invisible and no one could see her.I wish it could sing and be famous but she wouldn't because that would be funny as bunnies can't sing. If it could sing everyone would laugh.

Can you make a pompom using these instructions?

How To Make a Pompom                 by Melaia Moala

First you need to cut a piece of a 3 metre wool.

Second you flatten out your hand with your thumb sticking up.

Then you get the top of the string and place it near  your thumb and then start wrapping it around and around.

After that you pull it off slowly so you don’t need to start again.

Then you cut a little bit of string from your long string and place the pom pom on a table and tie it  in a very tight knot.

Then you give it a little bit of a hair cut. Finally you have a pompom.

Volcano experiment

video
We went to our buddy class to show how a volcano eruption works. First Miss Fallon came to the table and said that only the little people could come to the front. Then she put a mini fake volcano on the table. There was a tube that was attached to the volcano. Then she squeezed the vinegar into the syringe and attached it to the volcano. Then she pushed in the end of the syringe and everyone was excited to see it blowing up. If you push it gently it goes slowly but if you push it hard it will explode really high.

Science and Technology Challenge Recount by Belle and Nilpa

On Friday Rooms 8, 9, 18 and 19 went to the hall to do a science and technology challenfe. It was about making a safety stretcher out of newspaper, string and cellotape. It was hart to make it but when it was time to do the test to see whose was strong enough to hold a 5kg bag of potatoes my team got through. A lot of other teams failed so I felt sad for them. Belle



On Friday it was the technology fair. We had to make a stretcher with newspaper, string and tape. We had to make the stretcher in groups of four. Catherine, James and Oliver were in my group. We had no idea how to make a stretcher but James came up with a plan. We only had 20 minutes to make it. We had to carry a bag of potatoes. It felt like we were making it for hours. We made long handles because later people had to carry it around this obstacle course. We decided that James and Oliver should carry it. If you dropped it you were disqualified. Catherine and I thought we might be disqualified but our one made it through.    By Nilpa
