Martha Reporting on Cats!

We've been learning to write reports in class and here is a report written by Martha.


Cats are animals they have four legs, claws, a tail, a mouth, a nose, whiskers, two eyes, two ears and fur. Cats have two pointy ears to listen to things coming.
Cats eat meat and cat food. Some cats like catching mice, birds and lizards. Cats like to drink milk and water. Cats like meats like fish, chicken and cat treats. Some cats like eating grass too.
Cats like to do lots of things like running around the house. Sometimes they like climbing very fast. When it is winter some cats like to be in warm places like place where there is a fireplace.

We're been learning to write reports. Here is a report we wrote as a class about mice.


A mouse is an animal. Mice are small animals they have fur that covers their bodies, they have four legs and a tail. At the end of their legs that have paws. They have two eyes, a pink nose, whiskers, two ears and a mouth with sharp teeth inside.

Mice can live in house or outside in fields. Mice like living in warm places. When mice live in our houses they make their homes in our walls and under the floors. Humans don't like mice living in their houses because they can carried diseases.

Mice need food and water. They like eating vegtables, fruit, cheese and even peanut butter.

Humans don't like mice! We use mousetraps to catch them and get rid of them.

Volcanic Eruptions!

In Auckland we live near many extinct volcanoes but would you know what to do if there was an active volcano nearby? Taeshell does!

A volcano is like a chimney in the earth there is magma inside but when it comes out we call it lava. It is also a moutain. Some volcanoes are active and some are not. The top of the volcano is called the crater. If a volcano erupts we have got to run away. Or if we can't get away that fast we have to get away from the lava and try not to get burnt. If there is a volcanic eruption nearby you need to listen to the radio so it can tell you what to do. If you are leaving your house you need to wear protective clothing and you also need to take your survival kit.

Do you know what to do in an earthquake? Mohammed does!

An earthquake is when the earth's plates push together. In an earthquake the earth shakes. When the earth shakes land and building can get damaged and it can cause a tsunami. In an earthquake you have to drop, cover and hold. That means you drop down on the ground, cover yourself under a table and you hold onto the table legs.
