My dream holiday would be going to Tonga. I will go on an airplane with a my family. At Tonga me and my family would have money so we can have a big swimming pool. So Every morning I will eat fresh food and breakfast. And I will be happy because my family is happy.

Last week teem 2 had a wonderful day because we went to the Auckland Museum. We wanted to learn about Matariki which is the Maori new year. When we got there, we went to the Kai room and had our morning tea and room 26 went upstairs. After that we explored the museum. I saw a Moa and an enormous T. rex and there was glass on the ground that we could stand on. Then we went to the volcano room and we touched a volcano. We went into a room and we watched a volcano erupting in Auckland. The room was moving and the light went on and off. We all got ta moko on our faces. The girls had to get a ruru and the boys had to get a pekapeka or a kaka or a kiwi and Whaea Jo told us to go to the other side. We got an ipu and we put our hand in the ipu. It was fun because it felt lovely, slimey, and squishy - just like playdoh.

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.
