One rainy Friday afternoon 12 small boys had the best time of their life. After many days of rain, giant puddles sat out on the field. Giant puddles that were perfect for swimming.

I quickly raced to put on my togs. We ran out on to the field and splashed headfirst into the water. We jumped, ran and did lots of tricks.
Just as I got cold it was time to get out. We ran back to class and got changed. Thank you Miss King for the most fun ever.

Forces on a Kite

Gravity is the force that pulls everything down to the earth. Without gravity we would all float off into space.

Drag is the force that slows object down. Drag increases as an object goes faster,

Thrust is the force that moves an object. When we fly a kite, wind provides the thrust.

Lift is the force that pushes the kite up. Lift is created by air flowing around the kite.

Long ago the sky was dark and had no stars.
Deep in Lake Taupo lived a scary taniwha who ate people when it was dark. One day Tamarereti woke up he felt really hungry. Tamarereti went out fishing and caught lots of fish. He fell asleep and his waka drifted to the other side of Lake Taupo.
Tamarereti was hungry so he cooked his fish. It was dark and he was scared of the taniwha, but he had an idea. On the beach lay many shiny pebbles.
Tamarereti gathered as many pebbles as he could hold and set off in his waka.  As he sailed back to his village, Tamarereti threw the shiny pebbles into the sky where they settled to become the stars of Matariki.
