Planting Our Vegetable garden.

On Friday after lunchtime we were planting in our vegetable garden. Firstly we had to get these little black containers that the seedlings were in. It was like I have never ever planted before. We had turn the containers upside down and tap lightly to loosen the plant. Then we had to dig holes the size of the containers and gently place the little seedlings in there. Then we pressed the soil firmly around them. I planted a veggie combo and some lettuce.
It's good to grow veggies at home because you can get stronger and have better eyesight, if you eat carrots. Also they are healthy and good for you because they don't have sugar or artificial colouring. It's cheaper to grow your own vegetables than going to the shop and spend money on them.

Haiku poem

                            The Crowd

                        The crowd goes crazy
          As the players play their game
                     Win or lose - they play.

Nicky's ASB Visit.

Today after morning tea we had a guest named Nicky and she came from the ASB bank and this is what we learnt.We learnt that in one of the classes she taught a student took her seriously and started a job every Tuesday earning five dollars a day from ten neighbours. He ended up with $200.00 so that he could go on his rugby league trip. She asked us what we wanted to be when we are older and I said that I wanted to be a psychologist. 
She taught us what cash stands for and it stands for 
Clear goal 
How long? 
She taught us ways to earn money like doing your chores in the neighborhood and selling/trading things. Nicky says we should  train ourselves now and save money to get to university. Here are some words that we have learnt: interest and profit she also said "get what you want - plan."

Smart Relationship qualities.

Today for Cybersmart Mrs Collins was teaching us about smart relationship qualities. This is what we did - we had to make the tallest tower in just 10 minutes and here is the criteria. We had to build x1 free standing tower using 12 Spaghetti sticks and 8 marshmallow pillows.To make the towers we had to get into a group of 3 and in my group I had Mikaela and Jamie.
Each group had to choose 1 quality out of the 22 and our group chose 'interesting.' After morning Tea we came inside and started our towers straight away. When we started I noticed that the sticks weren't strong and the next minute, everything started snapping. So we tried something else but it didn't work either, so we made a triangular tower. It was like a race where you had to build the tallest in just 10 minutes. When we were done the teacher announced the winners and they were another group because their one was 36 cm and our one was 19cm. What a competitive day.
