First the artist draws on a piece of paper what he or she wants to draw on the artist's pot. Secondly the artist sticks the tiles on the the pot with PVA glue to stick the tiles on. When all the tiles are stuck on the pot the pot will look...AMAZING!!!!
After all the tiles are stuck on, the artist grouts the pot with grout. Then the artist gets a wet sponge and scrubs the pot. After all that scrubing the artist has.....FINISHED!!!!!!
That is how an artist makes a mosaic pot.

Going to school makes you learn. Children go to school five days a week. School is a place where children learn things and have lots of fun. Children go to school to learn new things that they dont know. Every day you learn something different that stretches you. It is very fun at school. Sometimes you learn something interesting because you learn from other people. You can also make new friends at school. You can learn to get along with other people. It is also very fun going to school. You can do a lot of fun things at school. Learning can sometimes also be very fun. It is fun because at morning tea and lunch you get to play in the playground.

Why do people create art?
Art is something the people draw and create. Somtimes, Artists may think that the walls on their house look a bit boring, so they create the art to make the walls on their house look more exiting.An artist might like to use their own art to decorate their house insted of buying someone else's house. Also, people make art for money. When they buy a canvas, and they don't have any money left,they use the money they get from the person why buys the art to pay for new art supplies. They also use the money for food and other things. if they get lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of money they might be ablted to buy a house. Everyone can do art! Sometimes, art can be really ugly!!! Art can look really pretty!!! that's why people create art.

New Zealand is a small country surrounded by water. This means we have lots of chances to use it. New Zealand is good at rowing because we have lots of water we can use. The athletes get comfortable about the water when they are very young. They also get to practice at college if they join a rowing team.This is why New Zealand is good at rowing.

In the holidays I went to movies with my caregiver and my sister Diya. We went to the movies to watch Ice Age 4. It was really funny when Sid (the sloth) drank salt water. Sid ate a bee hive. Sid’s granny didn’t have any teeth so Sid gave his granny shark teeth. At the end of the movie Sid’s granny said we are ham and cheese. My favourite part in Ice Age 4 was when the pirates were fighting Manny (the mammoth). Going to the movies was the highlight of my holiday.

Australian soldiers wrote openly to their homes about the horrors of the war. People risked their lives to save us and thats why we have ANZAC day to remember them. The soldier's mothers and wifes make biscuits for the trapped soldiers instead of bread. The new ANZAC biscuits are soft, healthy and delicious. On ANZAC day you can see the war planes in the sky.

Anzac day is the day when we remember all the soldiers that protected us in wars. We wear red poppies to remind us about the soldiers that dies in the war. This year my family and I watched the Army planes. They were very loud. We also watched a Tongan ceremony and Mangere. Then we went to a cafe. It had a TV. Then we saw another ceremony. It was a good day.
Anzac day is a day to remember the people in the war. ANZAC means Australia New Zealand Army Corp. The wives of Anzac soldiers baked cookies for the soldiers. The cookies went on a big ship that took two months. It could take two months because the cookies stayed fresh for a long time. If bread went on the ship for two months it would have moss and green stuff and it would not be yummy any more.
Anzac means Australia New Zealand Army Corp. In world war 1 the soldiers went to Gallipoli. It makes me remember my great grandad who was in the war. It was his birthday when they went to Gallipoli. Sometimes we make Anzac biscuits. Some people wear a poppy because on the beach where some of the people died a field of poppies grew.
On Anzac day we remember the soldiers who fought and died. We remember all of them including the ones who survived. On Anzac day people bake biscuits. During the war, soldier's wives baked biscuits and sent them to the soldiers at war. They were called soldier's biscuits then. They sent them because the soldiers couldn't go without food, otherwise they wouldn't have enough energy. ANZAC stands for Australia New Zealand Army Corps. The Australians fought with us.
Anzac Day means that you remember the soldiers who died long ago. Every Anzac day people wear poppies and jets perform in the sky. On Anzac day some people bake Anzac cookies and on the day the soldiers were at the war their mothers, wives and girlfriends baked Anzac cookies for them.

We were privileged to get to learn some of the words today and it was very inspirational. My favourite lyric was about "blood, sweat and tears" because to me that shows the determination required to become an Olympic athlete. So the next time we have to run around the field, we will know what real determination feels like!
Thanks so much to Sam coming in to share this fantastic example of breakthrough learning in the real world with us! If you'd like to hear Sam's song and vote for it, log in to facebook (if you're old enough) or get an adult to log in and vote!

A garden is a place we put all our plants and seeds.
Gardens are special to other people. In Japan some people go to the Japanese gardens to think. Some gardens can also have vegetables and some gardens just look pretty.
Gardens are made out of seeds and rain and soil. There are all sorts of gardens. There are ones at school, home and even on mountains.
A garden is a place where plants live. To make a garden, dig a hole in the dirt and then put seeds in the hole in the dirt. After that, water it in the holes and then let the garden grow. If it is watered it will grow faster.
Gardens are special because they can remind people of special places they have been to.
