    o you know how blueberries grow? They grow on bushes. Each blueberry is small and round. Many blueberries can grow on one bush. At first, the blueberries are green. The green berries are not ready to eat yet. They need a lot of sun and rain to help them become fat and sweet. When the berries turn blue, they are ripe and ready to be picked.

Some farmers grow blueberries in big fields. The people who live nearby can earn money by helping to pick the blueberries. Each one takes a pail out to the field and fills it with blueberries. They work fast so that they can fill many pails. They want to earn as much money as they can. When they are done picking, their fingers are blue from the juice of the berries!

After the blueberries are picked, they are put into boxes and sent to stores. People buy the blueberries and take them home to eat. Some people like to wash the berries and eat them one by one. Other people like to cook with blueberries. They make blueberry muffins and pancakes.

How the chipmunk got its stripes

Long ago, the Earth was covered in darkness. None of the creatures living there knew what daylight looked like.
One day, all of the animals of the forest gathered together in a clearing. They wondered if it would be better to remain in darkness, or if it would be better to also have light. Deer, Chipmunk, Raccoon, Wolf, Bear, and many other creatures climbed to the top of the highest mountain. The mountain stood so tall that there were no trees on its top, and it was covered only with rocks. Millions of stars blinked in the dark sky overhead. The biggest and most powerful animal in the forest was the bear, and he was the first to reach the mountaintop. Bear stood on the highest peak, looked out over the forest below, and argued for remaining in darkness. He said that the creatures of the forest would be able to sleep better in darkness because there would be no light to keep them awake. Most of the other animals were afraid, and they agreed with Bear. Raccoon said that he did not mind the darkness because he was so smart that he could find plenty of food, even in the dark. Wolf was easy to please, too. She didn't mind the darkness because she could howl in darkness or in light.
But one animal did stand up to Bear. Chipmunk, the smallest of the animals, argued that it would be better to have both light and dark. Chipmunk was very clever. As Bear continued to argue for darkness, she made many good arguments for light.
Slowly, the night passed. Bear grew tired of talking, but Chipmunk chattered on and on, as if she had all of the energy in the world. As the other animals dropped off to sleep, one by one, Chipmunk kept arguing. Finally, the first sunrise ever seen by the animals appeared over the top of the mountain. They woke up and were amazed by what they saw.

Chipmunk began to dance from rock to rock. Bear became angry because he didn't get his way. He roared loudly and ran after Chipmunk. He chased Chipmunk all the way down the mountain. Bear was fast, and he reached out his giant paw to grab Chipmunk. Chipmunk got away, but not before Bear managed to scratch her back with his long claws. And that is why, to this day, you can see stripes on Chipmunk's back!

On the 14th of September Team 4 went to the Auckland Stardome in One Tree Hill. There were 6 groups, group 1, group 2, group 3, group 4, group 5, and finally my group, group 6. We travled by bus to the Stardome it was kinda noisy on the bus but it was still fun.

When we got there we were to early so we played on the park. We only had 10 minutes witch was not very long. My group was sitting up so nicely we were first on the park. I sprinted all the way to the tyres. I was first on with a few other people.

Then our 10 minutes were up I ran back to the front of the Stardome and sat up with a big smile on my face puffing loudly. Then our group was first in the Stardome. We got to have a good look at everything before going into a room to learn more about the planets. Finally she called us in we came and sat down on chairs. I learnt that because where just in the middle of the sun and cold planets that is just like goldilocks and the three bears. Then we got given only one ipad for each team. We used the ipads for a quiz. There were 7 questions my team got 6 right.

Then when we were finished with the quiz We finally went into the Stardome and learnt more about planets. Then we watched a awesome movie at the end.

Cross Country

On a bright sunny Friday the 1st of September Pt England School had a Cross Country Fun Run.  The Cross Country was on the school field.   There was a sausage sizzle for two dollars next to the staff room. The sauasage sizzle was on from morning tea to 1.00pm.

When the yr 1s race started I watched my Brother run. Then I watched my sister run. Then suddenly they were handing out   unbrellas because the sun was to hot. Finally the yr 5s race started. I was not ready to run I had butterflys in my tummy.

Then off we ran. I was nervous because I knew my asthma will get to me. So I jogged but it came to mud so deep we were sinking into the ground. I started walking because my asthma was coming slowly then when we got to the end I was not really proud of myself and I don’t know why? The funny thing was I came 24th my brother came 4th and my sister came 4th.
