Term 3 Literacy

This term Literacy was really fun because there were different task’s that had different meaning. Although there might have been bumps during this term with work it was really cool to learn more about the Dawn Raids, and other books like Thank you ma’am and so on. We have also been doing creat task’s and describing how our group discussions went! Sometimes we had rotations that included meeting with the teacher, having to do our follow up task’s, having a free choice in reading, and also completing our DLO.

One time we also had a task for writing where we had to make a speech. To me this idea off doing speeches was really fun because there were loads of different story’s that I either agreed with or disagreed with. We also read mostly relatable story’s and novels that had past 100 pages. Some other fun things that we got to do was make our own posters about country’s around the world. In this create task I chose the country of “Sierra Leone”. I chose this country because it was different from others and also had amazing facts about its country.

We also had to complete Literacy planet and other task’s involving read theory and epic. Things we had to also talk about in our group’s were what the authors message was and why did they write the story or text for. We also had to make connections in the story’s and compare opposite sides of the texts.

Dawn Raids

This is my Writing task that I have been working on for two weeks! This task is all about the Dawn Raids that has happened in New Zealand. One fact about the history of the Dawn Raids is that their was a community of pacifika people who stood up to what was right for our polynesian community. I hope you enjoyed my blog post! Please leave a positive comment on my blog. THANKS!

Year 7 Step Up Program

Last week the year 8’s went to a Leadership Camp. While they were away the year 7’s had a Step Up Program. The year 7’s had lots of fun and had lots of activities to do. The first day of the activities started on Wednesday. We first had to make our team names. My Team name was The Mighty Kiwi’s, there was also, Fobalisous, and Terrors. 

The first activity was playing human Tic Tac Toe. I didn’t join because the fast people mosty went. My team kept losing and the other teams got points. Then the round two activity came. The round two activity was a singing battle. We had one piece of paper per team and we had to write down songs that we could use for different topics. The first topic was love and we all sang our hearts out. Then we had a number of songs we had to sing and most of them were babyish Like the three little monkeys.

Finally we finished singing and we began to colour in to make our work. The things that we were colouring are going to be one big picture. After that we made motivational quotes. We all coloured them in and decorated them. Then I had to leave.

One thing about that day that I did not like was when we did our chant’s. When the other team’s did their chant’s I was really impressed by their moves and words they were doing. Then there was my group. My group’s chant was the worst one because they all had to join but they didn’t and one kid had to yell something and boy did they yell loud. But most of all we all had fun with what we were doing and we helped each other all the way. 

Narative Writing – Mary And The Magical Broom

Once upon a time in a land called far far away, there was a girl named Mary. At that time Mary was reading a book under a colossal oak tree that was based far away from her hometown. The book was about an adventure located in the forest. Mary then began to read these words “Magical Book open up now these words will open and you will unlock” Then from out of nowhere Mary began to sink into the book. From then on Mary vanished into thin air.

After that Mary came falling from above by a Magical portal and began to fall into a bunch of magic leaves. And then her skin started to itch so bad that she started turning purple like a blueberry. She itched and itched until she went tumbling down a hill and then landed in a soft pile of sticks. Once she landed, her skin turned back to her original colour. As she then got up she felt a weird object poking her by the hip.  

As she looked closer at it she noticed that it was a broom. “WOW, this is incredible how cool would it be if I flew this thing” Then she saw the broom had a golden trim on its handle and it looked like it was from ancient histories, like from when she wasn’t born. The broom was also covered in the coding of dust that made you sneeze and want to barf when you see it. It also had a light scent of vanilla added to it.

Mary then blew off all the dust and cleaned the broom with her jacket, and as she did that she saw the broom grow bigger, in shock she dropped the broom and screamed as loud as she could and started sprinting off to find help. “ AAAAAA, Help me Help me” Then Mary felt a sudden urge to turn around. As she turned 90 degrees she saw the broom on the ground that looked like it was dead. After a little bit of thinking, she decided that she wanted to keep the magical broom because it seemed interesting to her. But as she blinked the broom flew into her hands and started shrinking into its natural size. A few minutes later she calmed down and started walking north to find a way home. Then thought to herself if she could fly the broom. So that was what she did. “WOOHOO my name is Mary and I am flying a magical broom,” she said.

As she was flying she spotted a portal, she thought about how she was going to go back home. She didn’t know her way around these magic portal things so she just went through them. Then she thought about how worried her mother would be.“ My mother would be disappointed if she thought I was dead, would she? While she was thinking she didn’t notice that she was walking right through another magical portal that appeared in front of her, and not knowing she walked right through it. 

As she put her head up she saw her house, in disbelief she walked up to the house and touched it as if it was a dream, thinking it would disappear when she touched it. “Please be a way home please” she cried. So without a thought, she touched it again and she was immediately back home. In happiness, she went to the doorstep of her house and decided she would never go too far from her house again. The End


Character Description

This is my writing that I did. For My writing today I had to describe 3 charecters based on one single picture. I hope I learn more about how to describe things based off of one thing I look at.

Startled, he thinks it’s a dream. Martin wakes up not knowing what has happened and where he is? The last thing he remembers is eating his plate of bacon and eggs in business class on the Emirates Boeing 737.  

He was still conscious and was trying to figure out why he was on the ground. He was aware of the things surrounding him and was still lying down with a pounding headache. The only things he saw around him were just the plane and a long distance for him to walk to.

Martin knew he was flying from New Zealand to the United States but he never thought he would end up on a deserted land. Martin was afraid because he was the only human being on the land. with an awful look on his face, he felt like he couldn’t breathe. Then he collapsed. 

Once he woke up it was already dark out and the sky was filled with stars. It was awesome for Martin to see because he was never brave enough to look at the dark sky. He thought it was a sign of bad luck and wondered why he thought that all along. Then Martin started to sing with all his courage and was enjoying the moment until a Truck came.

In the Truck was a strange-looking man. The man knew who Martin was and it turns out Martin’s family reported him missing! The man turned out to be his long-lost Uncle. Later that evening Martin and his Uncle went to his small little cabin. After a week Martin booked a Ticket back to New Zealand. So he left for New Zealand but he was surprised when he saw his Uncle going with him. Then Martin and his Uncle were reunited with their family and had a happy life after the great adventure they had.
