Space Poetry
We wrote these space poems in class.
They are called Diamante Poems because of their diamond shape.
They are created using a set pattern for each line.
We had to learn about nouns, adjectives and verbs.

Super Star Lab
Recount by Isabell and Priyanka

On Monday we went to the star lab.
It was fantastic. We got to look at constellations.
And the stars made pictures, we saw Matariki.
The lady told us stories about the constellations.
It was really, really cool to see all the stars.

It was really fun. It was a little dark. Some of the stars were on the ground.  

By Madeleine and Rylan   

It was so big inside and outside.
When we got inside we sat on some cushions and we were so quiet that it sounded like there are some mice in there.

Then a lady talked to us about stars. They talked about stars and planets. There were photos in there.
