Shantytown Visit


This week Totara 2 and 3 went to Shantytown. We studied the law of the Goldrush and what life was like in the 1800's.
We learnt about why settlers came to the West Coast and what the conditions they lived in were like. We also went on the steam train and got robbed at gun point. We had to describe who robbed us to the Police Officer and see if we could find the suspect and get him locked up in jail. Lastly we had a court case where Paris was accused of stealing a pocket watch when she was wiping the tables down in the saloon. Maya was her lawyer and had to convince the judge and the jury that she was innocent. Unfortunately, Jimmy was a far too good prosecutor and the jury found Paris guilty and she was charged with stealing and sent to prison for 6 months! We had a great day!
Check out our slide below to see some of the photos of our awesome day!

Space Reports

We started this term out of this world! We have been looking at Space and the planets in our Solar System. We had a number of activities that we needed to complete which were on the Space Site https://sites.google.com/a/greymain.school.nz/space/?pli=1
One of our tasks was to write a report on a planet in our Solar System. Click on our names to read our reports.

Kindness

Check out this act of Kindness! Paris saw that Royden was writing on his blog and was having trouble reading what he had to write next, so without even thinking she went over and helped him write his report on his blog.  Thank you Paris for always thinking of others and showing kindness. You truly are a great Grey Main role model!

Plotting Coordinates

We have been learning how to plot coordinates. For this activity we had to draw and label our axis and then plot the coordinates to create the picture. Some of us found it hard in the beginning because we forgot that we have to go along the axis first, before we went up or down. Check out some of our blogs for our pwn finished products!
