Today the years 3-4 did coach approach. Sorry I have to leave I will be back
Ah I’m back now I can tell you about Coach Approach. So the first activity we did was Teamwork. For the first game we had to put ourselves in alphabetical order WITHOUT TALKING! For the second game we had to put ourselves in height order, again, without talking. The final game was the most exciting because we only got a short look at a map that would lead us through the maze. My team nearly won. Our second activity was a game called Lacrosse which was really strange. (The game was strange because the coach said that in the real games people whack the other teams back!) But my favourite game was ULTIMATE FRISBEE!!! This was really fun because we did lots of things relating to frisbees. We did partner throws and technique. The biggest challenge was the wind, which kept on blowing the frisbees away.
In the end we all had heaps of fun. What will happen next time…
For inquiry this term we have been looking at problems in and around our school. We had to find a big problem and investigate what was causing it. My problem was traffic jams. My plan to make these traffic jams ease is to write a letter to the council telling them about these traffic jams. My solution to this is that we need more buses. I will tell the council in my letter to see if they could hire more buses for the schools. I will also write to the bus company to ask them to reduce the price a bit. I think that if they reduce the price more people would catch the bus.
Today we have been learning how to write Haku poems. Haiku poems are poems that have 5 syllables on the first line, 7 on the second and 5 on the third. Below are some that I have written. Test the syllables for yourself!

On Wednesday we went to see the Magic Flute. The Magic Flute is an opera story. The story is about this person called Tamino who is chased through the woods by a monster. He faints and then meets a bird catcher called Papageno. Then the queen of the night comes and shows Tamino a portrait of her daughter and Tamino falls in love with it. He promises to rescue her and succeeds and they become king and queen.
