Docking Day

Passed these few weeks, the Weka's have been working on a story called Docking Day. For our activity we had to write 2-3 good sentences to explain why this years docking was better than ever. We also had to choose 2 similes from the book to draw a picture of it to explain what it meant.

For Mikey and his brother, this years docking was the best because of when a truck rolled down the hill. The truck was filled with chocolate that emptied all over the hill like Christmas decorations.

How to make a Paper Box

Follow my steps if you want to make a paper box.

  • Rectangular shaped Paper
  • Your own hands

Step 1. Fold the paper from bottom to top and unfold it, then fold it from side to side and unfold that.

Step 2. Keeping the paper on the table, you fold both the long edges into the middle. Them unfold them.

Step 3. Fold both the short edges into the middle and leave them there.

Step 4. Now fold in all the corners so that they meet the nearest crease.

Step 5. Bend back the edges in the middle so that they wrap around the corners.

 Step 6. Now put your finger inside corner and pull gently outwards.

Step 7. If you do it properly and pinch the corners in smoothly, it may end up like this, it is also your choice if you want to decorate it.
