Child Choice Writing

Once upon a time everything was lego. Even the universe was! Instead of cars there were alien saucers. There was a whole lot of army soldiers and instead of guns there were lazers. Anyway they work better. The army soldiers lived in a space shuttle up in space. They could travel all over the galaxy. It could go around the sun ten times in two seconds. It has got lots of lazers all over it. One day they had a battle and a thousand people died. There were heaps of blood when the battle ended. There were all over the place... The battle of the earth had just begun.
Written by Jay during child choice writing time.

School Fair- I wish I went there

The school fair only come once a year. I didn't go to the fair but I heard about it. Just imagine a hot sausage sizzling away in your mouth and seeing ponies trotting around the soccer field. Also seeing the decorated cakes and eating candy floss. YUM! There was even a mini fire truck racing around the tennis court called 'Little Flick", Did you hear about the bouncy castle? Wow it must of been sensational! Do you think you might go next year? Thamilla

Cricket at St Clair School filmed by Kiwi Sport

Today St Clair School Year 5 and 6 students and St Bernadettes students played a cricket match that was filmed by Kiwi Sport so it could be on Channel 4 TV. It will be shown on the 2nd of April.
The children showed their skills of bowling, fielding, catching and batting. It was a very close score 43/45. Both teams were representing their schools and they all enjoyed playing and being filmed.
Manawa was St Clairs' Captian and Tim was St Bernadetts. They did well as they had no practices as a team before the match. Congratulations to St Bernadettes who won the match. St Clair won a touch rugby ball for hosting the event.

It's and its confused

It's is the contraction for it is while its is not.
Which one will you choose? Don't forget to use the 'it is' test e.g. "It's hot in here. Does the following it is test make sense? It is hot in here. Yes it does so it is the contraction "It is".

Try your own 'it is' test and answer the questions on the link - It's or its?
