Dear, Nikki and Sigred

I want to thank you very very much for teaching us FLiP and also for paying for our busses to go to the Botanic Gardens.

What I learnt from the flip programme was how to be wise with money and how to save save money.

My favourite part of the Botanic Gardens was seeing Magnolias and the Cherry Blossom Tree.

Thank You so much
Your Sincerely

Narrative: Imaginary Creature

Narrative: Imaginary Creature

A very long time ago there lived a Griffin on top of a mountain. He was half lion and half eagle. He was very hairy, green eyes, very giant wings and he also had claws on the end of his legs.
He was very happy until one he came to a day when he felt sad because he didn’t have any friends.

He went down to a village and when he went to the village the people of the village got scared because he didn’t look like a human being so they got out all of their weapons and tried to  throw their knives at him.

He went back up the mountain. He went back again and the griffin said “ Hey please don’t do that I just want to make some friends,” So the King, Queen and the Princess came and said “ Hey Griffin can you please protect us because there has been a thief stealing all of our gold and that’s why the village has been trying to attack you and if you protect us you  can have some friends to play with including the princess

They all lived happily ever after   

The End

Botanic Gardens

Last week I went to the Botanic Gardens with my whole school. We went to the botanic gardens by bus and we got divided into 2 groups between our classes.

The Botanic Gardens is in Manurewa and it takes only 20 mins to go by car and 23 mins by bus.

I felt very excited when I got there because I have never been to the Botanic Gardens and last week was the 1st time I have ever been.

My favourite sculpture was the eel because it looked very fascinating.

My favourite plant was the Magnolia and my favourite area of the gardens were the Magnolias because I like the white colour they have.
It was a really cool day that day!
