"Weeeeee" I screamed as I went down the flying fox. "BAAM" I banged into the platform, then I slowly unhooked the hook and dragged it along the wire. "oooooh" I took a deep breath in and stepped on to the next platform. I jumped into the net and then suddenly . . .

Her eye started to grow and her blood rushed around her body, as she boosted up to them getting ready to rip them apart, like shards of rainbows fly around. She rip them up without caring about the card she gasped . . .

show don't tell

In class we  have been writing about a time when you where hiding. We were working on using descriptive word's and using punctuation properly and show do tell

next time I think I need to use my punctuation better 

and I did go on doing show don't tell

WALT Describe hiding without telling the audience that we are hiding
Create our writing to make it interesting to our reader

Success Criteria

- use descriptive detail
- starts with something that was said or thought (Hook the reader in)
- use expressive vocabulary
- making sure you are showing the story instead of telling the story

- use punctuation to make sense of the story

“ I hope I don’t get caught, I don’t want to be in” I whispered to myself as I sat there in the closet all cramped up. Suddenly I heard loud footsteps like a giant going for a walk. I open the door as small as could be and behind me was a small glimpse of light.

I peeped out of the door. She was standing right there, right in front like a statue standing still. Listening for noise. So I took deep breath in for as long as I could . My mind went blank and all I was thinking of was “be quiet be quiet don’t make a noise don’t make a noise”.  

“Come on Waimarama I know you want to give up, just hold it in you can do it”  I thought to myself like a hunched over old lady with a really achy back.  I was so desperate to give up. I could smell the fatty chicken sizzling away.  

“Ohhhh My tummy starting to rumble” I muttered to  myself ready to just boost it out of the closet and munch that chicken down. Moments later I heard my sister say “I found you I found you”. Once I heard she said that, I boosted it out of the closet and skipped down the hall with a huge grin on my face I uttered down the hall “ I win, you lose I win you lose ”.

“Shame you lose” I screamed in my brothers face. I hustled outside to the front deck singing “ I am the champion and you  are a loser hahahaha, thank you thank you”.
“ I hope I don’t get caught, I don’t want to be in” I whispered to myself as I sat there in the closet all cramped up. Suddenly I heard loud footsteps like a giant going for a walk.

Once I came home from school I was sitting there watching T V and I was bored so I wrote some poems about the seasons of the year and this is what I wrote...

and the thing I did best is probably describing words...

Animate - The mysterious door

last week we wrote a story about a little white door (this is what the picture looks like) then we had to  show it but it had to be animated.

My story is about a little girl come home from school. She noticed a little door. Next to the door was a potion and she drinks it. Then she shrinks. Then she realise that she can fit in the door now, so she goes in. It was pitch black and after that it was a mystery. She was never to be seen again. 

Next time I think I should use more descriptive words.

I think I did good no my animated story.   

add detail to our creative writing to make it interesting to our reader

He stopped at the window and Mum took a deep breath in and the cop stood there “ Ma'am I think you have to leave, the construction worker’s are working on a building and the water pipe has bursted and it’s blocked off sorry” he said in grief. “ohhh” Mum breathed out she was so glad she didn't do anything wrong.  So we took off home in a big rush and we were so disappointed that we couldn’t get some Mcdonalds

  • put things in order
  • use describing words
  • give lots of detail to paint a picture in the readers head
  • start with something that was said or thought
  • use powerful verbs
Describe a time we were successful

“Woohoo we're finally here… Lonsdale park” I screamed “ I've always  wanted to go here”.   I went to my dorm skipping as happy as could be, I unpack my luggage with a huge grin on my face I made my bed and I boosted it to the hall.  We had briefing and went over all the rules and we introduce our self and then the fun began.  

To get the ball rolling Cathy my division manager announced “ this weekend we are making . . . poppet “  all the cadets cheer with excitement  “our poppets are based on what is important to me” Cathy announced, straight away I had a idea . . . Miss money blond curly hair, money tucks, gold top hat and gold eye’s. The next day I put my blood sweat and tears into making my poppet after all that hard efit it was all effit was finished and it looked just how I planned

The next day I put my uniform on as fast as the wind.  I boosted it into the hall we did parde  and after all of that it was time to receive our badge, I stood there tall and proud as handed me my badge.  I was so proud of myself because it was my first badge.

After all of that it was all over.  I packed all of my gear and waited for my ride.  I was proud of myself and I was exhausted. I was so overjoyed that it was over, at that point of time my ride was I picked up my luggage and I spent another hour in the car from Mitimiti to Kaikohe.  

The End . . .

WALT:recount an exciting event so that our reader knows what happened and how we felt.

“Get up Waimarama!” yelled mum “its time to march!”
"Give me five more minutes”  I replied in a sleepy voice.
"NO NOW!” Mum yelled in her grumpy voice.   Then I walked to my wardrobe like a hunched over old lady, I put my uniform on with my eyes half shut. I had a feed and off we went to the Kaikohe RSA.

A few minutes later we marched down to the memorial hall and then we had the dawn parade. I tell ya it was freezing.  After that I went to all these places In Northland with Air Training Corps (ATC) 25 squadron.  It was so fun, I enjoyed it because I tried something new and I really want to do it again

Then the day was all over and the sky was turning dark blue. I felt hot and sticky at that time I was half asleep we went to the unit then we had a meeting . I was pleased that it was all over “ whoo I can go home now“ I screamed with cheer.

I finally arrived at home I walk as slow as a snail I dropped on my bed like a sloth and straight away I was asleep. Mum yelled out I her soft tone “sweet dreams”.

In class time today we had to a reflection of the term and here mine...

...What was your best moment in term one? Why?
The best moment in term 1 is when I found  out that I was an ambassador. I never thought that I had or have the skills to be one.
What was the most important thing you learnt?
The most important thing I learnt  was art. The best type of area of art was blending

What subject do you do the best in this term and why?
The best subject I liked this term was art I enjoy drawing things. I like doing it by myself Because it calms me down and it’s nice and quiet.  
What subject did you not do so well in and why?.
The subject I think I need to work on is my te reo maori. need to work on confidence and pronounce it properly  
Did I manage my time wisely this term? How? e.g. finishing most tasks, working independently.
I think I did manage my time . I have finish most of my task . and I do work independently sometimes

What can I do differently next term to improve? Why?
I think that I don’t really need to improve on anything. I am up to date with my work and I manage my time well and I work independently.     (sometimes)

Give yourself smiley faces out of 10 to show how well you have done this term:
