The wind sounds like a river when it goes past our classroom. I was like an ice cube when I was outside. The wind kept blowing against me.

The breeze is blowing against my face. The magical wind made me feel like flying. When the wind whistles it sounds like a scary ghost. The freezing wind felt like a humungous ice cube.

I gathered a pile of wet leaves. I chucked the leaves in the sky. It went on my head. I got another pile of leaves and we chucked them in the sky. It was everywhere on me. When the leaves fell on me it felt wet and slimy and dirty.

The breeze blew into my face as I walked outside. The trees were blowing against me. The wind blew my hair. It sounded like the ocean noises. The branches of the redwood were moving against the wind. I was shivering like an iceblock.

The breezy wind felt very nice when I was standing outside. The wind was blowing against the rattling leaves that blew into each other. When I walked out the door I could feel the wind blowing against my arms. I was standing out in the cold icy wind. The whistling wind was so so cold.

The wind sounds like ocean waves around me. Then the wind started freezing me. The wind was like ice when it blew me away. I couldn’t stay still. I like the lovely breeze because it felt so beautiful on my skin. It’s like a soft hand wash.

The wind started to blow around me. It pushed against my arms and blew at my face like a mini tornado. The trees started swaying. The wind began pushing the trees backwards and forwards. The wind was howling in my ears. It felt like I was in Arctic.

The whistling wind blew towards my face. It blew my hair right back behind my head. The wind moves my legs by blowing against me. The wind was really refreshing. It was spectacular. It was so very strong. The wind blew like a big tornado around me. I was a frozen iceblock.

The whistling wind blew into my face. It made me shiver. I put my arms out wide. It blew hard. It made my arms move. The tree was moving and dropping leaves. It felt like a snowy day.

The wind was making me cold. When the wind blew I moved a little bit. The tree rattled. Leaves were coming down some went in my face. I put my arms out my clothes were blowing.
At the moment we are learning about multiplication and division.
We are learning about making groups of things.
This is how our class looks at maths time. One group is working with the teacher. The rest of us are doing independent maths games. We have to make sure we have a working noise so Anna can hear her group - this is really hard when you are winning the game!!!
My Dad says "You and your sister can do the dishes". I run away and hide. He always finds me and sends me to the kitchen. Me and my sister fight about who wants to wash and dry. She comes after me with a wet tea towel. Dad growls me. She laughs and I go after her. Then Dad growls me again. I always think why do I get the blame when she started it.
At the the moment there are a lot of beautiful autumn leaves around our school.
Every day Dugan uses his leaf blower to move them.
Anna gets an email every Friday from the NZ Gardener giving ideas of things you can do in your garden. Last week it gave Anna an idea of what we could do with all the leaves.
We piled up the leaves around middle flat. We got some black rubbish bags from Dugan and filled them with the autumn leaves. Over winter the leaves inside the bag will break down and in summer we will have great leaf mulch for our garden. This will help our plants grow.
I chucked some leaves in the air. I like how it fell on me. It felt like a 1000 pillows.
I saw leaves on the grass. I was so excited that I threw them to the sun. It was like an asteriod falling.
I gathered old rusty wet leaves into a pile. Then I threw them so hard into the air that they were flying around. Some of the leaves landed on my hair and got stuck in my clothes.
It felt like a ball of spiders were going all on my back. It looked like big chunks of orange rain falling on my head.
They were wet and cold. I threw a lot of leaves in the sky. They came down and landed all over the place. Some went down my t.shirt. Some leaves were dry and crunchy. I gathered another lot of leaves. I threw them in the air. It smelled like autumn.
