My Holidays

On Monday and Tuesday I did writing. We had to write about our holidays. I was writing about the waves pools and I think I did well and I think next time I could use more describing words. I hope you like my writing. 

“Wippee”! As I slid down the hydra slide. The waves turned on, I nearly drowned! I averred in a bus and I was sitting next to my best friend harmony. I was really excited when we got there because I knew I was going to have a fun time. In the hydra slide I could hear harmony shouting “HELLO WAVE POOLS”! The people in line laughed. When I slid down it was my second in the hydra slide it was the light one and I whispered “It’s really cool in here”!  When I jumped in the pool again I knew all the boys were checking me out in my green, yellow and white bikini. I Was booming in the deep with my other friends Eden, Te aria and Still Harmony. We had lots of fun. When I got Out I had some money that my mum gave me and I spent it on ice blocks. We had to go so I went in the bus and we I did that we were allowed to make a hut in there. The End.

Once upon a time on a sunny day at the beach it smelled like flowers and salt. 2 people were there it was Coby and Tiana. Tiana had nice brown hair that flows up and down in the wind. They meet each other. Coby asked if “Tiana wants to go for a swim”.They ran like crazy in to the blue wavy water. Tiana and Coby were dating for a while and then Tiana had a little talk to her parents about her new boyfriend ( Coby) and she thinks she should show coby to them.

After that was over Chris the bother of Tiana was very angry of Coby for dating his sister. Chris kidnapped Coby when he was sleeping because he wants his sister to be safe and he doesn't think that Coby is safe. He took Coby to his black dark trap which was his evil house. When Coby was a wake Chris tried threaten him with his golden sword. Chris put chains around him and even put handcuffs on Coby so he couldn't grab anything or get out.

Tiana was looking for Coby and Tiana knows that Chris always takes her boyfriends to his house so she went to go see if they were there and then she spotted her brother (Chris) with a golden sword in his right hand trying to threaten Coby. Tiana shouted “WHAT ARE YOU DOING”. Chris was frozen like ice. He Suddenly spoke an wipered “I’m just trying to keep you safe from him”. Tiana Was shocked she was untying him from the chains and then she stop “I am safe now and I can look after myself but if I have problems you know I will come straight to you. Chris and Tiana hugged. Coby said “HELLO I”M STILL TIED UP HERE”. Chris and tiana got him out and then it was happily ever after with their babies and their wedding rings. The End

Hi I am Kiana and I would like to talk to you about choir. I felt so alive when my name got called up to do a solo. It was just the start of being a famous singer. I was singing with my back a little bit down and with my hands around my body like a ninja. Now Im going to tell you How much I think the choir improved. The Girls is amazing in words you couldn’t understand. All of the people in the choir have voices like angels. Ka Mo Te Wehi girls The Last thing I am going to talk about is miss nicola and mrs henwood for what they have teached us Miss Nicola and mrs henwood are super stars. They have teached us a lot of singing (I mean a lot) The most best thing about mrs henwood and miss nicola is that she push us to do good at things that were bad at. And they encourages us to do your best.
Thanks for listening to my Speech and Have a great weekend.

Show Don't tell Create a Character

WALT: Show Don’t tell to Describe and expand on one Feature of our Character.

Ariana had beautiful white cloud like fairy wings. With diamonds in the sides of the wings. They Glowed in the dark so when she travels she can see where she is going. If she sings in the daylight her wings shrink down in her body so you can’t see them and then at night they will grow wider than her arms.

Show Don't tell With Miss Smith

We have been learning over the past 3 days show don't tell. I think I made people hanging and what was going to make them wonder what is going to happen next. What I need to do better is show more about my feeling. 

As they walked through sweating with fear they heard sticks getting crunched on. They felt like they were being followed. Fog was rising up in a weird way. Rotten bones all around them. Then they found a cave full of people berdy alive with their toes peeking out. They found a blood trail leading to a pool filled with dead bodies. They spotted a devil and witches house that was made out of wood and candy. Later on they heard laughter through the air singing “lalalalala”. When they were trying to get out they saw scratched up rip signs at the haunted house then Suddenly....

Show don't Tell

This week we have been looking at Show don't tell.Our WALT: Describe hiding without telling the audience that we are hiding 

Create our writing to make it interesting to our reader

“You can’t find me.” “You can’t find me.” I whispered out from in the basement.  It was pitch black and It felt like there was a creep crawly spider crawling up my  back.  The life zoomed right out of me when I heard tiny footsteps coming my way.  

I was lucky when Rose  tipped toed right passed me.  I was itchy but I couldn't move.  I had to move I just had to.  I knocked over a pot. “I hope she didn't hear that”.   

After 20 minutes “OMG” I can hear everyone whispering I think everyone is out.  I waited 10 more minutes. I heard everyone saying “The game is over so you can come out now”.

I had to go out.  I put my hand on the knob but someone turned it for me.  Rose blasted in my ear “I CAUGHT YOU SO YOUR OUT NOW”.  At last one of them found me. They whispered in each others ears “Kiana was the  hardest one to find”.  I was thinking in my head “I wonder if it will take them that long to find me again”.

100 Word Challenge #36

100 WC #36

“OMG” I shouted to myself. I ran to see what happened. There was a big eggtomic bomb that was just laying on the ground with a cracked shell. I gazed around and I saw the construction workers coming right this way. There had been a car crash and this eggtomic egg was on one of the cars. They were trying to get it back together. It was like Humpty Dumpty broke his shell and no one could fix it. One of the construction workers were blabbering about if I had seen someone that had gone out of the egg. But I kept saying “NO” but they didn't listen.

Success Recount

You are going to write a descriptive recount, telling our audience about a time you were successful.  
Describe a time we were successful
Success Criteria
Have you remembered…
- start with something that was said or thought
- Use punctuation (capital letters to start sentences and names and fullstops to end)
- to put everything in the right order
- use describing words and lots of detail.
- Re-read it to check it makes sense

“We are here we are here”. I shouted out. I put on my skates. Then I hopped on the ice. My uncle helped me out with the ice because it was slippery. Last but not least I was skating on my very own.

Firstly the skates were hot shiny pink with light blue laces. They felt like there were pink worms growing out of my feet and they smelled like dirty socks. I tried to see if I could walk on the hard white ground with them but I couldn't, It was to hard for me.
Secondly the ice that I hopped on was very slippery and it looked like it was growing cold steam out of it . The ice had scratches everywhere.

Thirdly My uncle helped me out because I couldn't do it on my own and i fell hard on the ice  when I stepped on it.  My uncle showed me how to do it when i was sitting down on the seats, he was a fantastic skater by the looks from my eyes

Fourthly I said to my uncle “I want to try do it by myself” and I did I went for a lap around the sides. Then I tried to do it in the middle, and…..  I DID IT!  I said to myself and my uncle  he took a photo and then we went home. 

I was going to burst in the car because that was my first time. I was thinking to myself “I want to be a professional skater when I am bigger.”

Anzac Day

Anzac  Day

Anzac Day occurs on 25 April. It commemorates all New Zealanders killed in war and also honors returned servicemen and women.

Anzac art 1916. The date itself marks the anniversary of the landing of New Zealand and Australian soldiers – the Anzacs  on the Gallipoli Peninsula in 1915. The aim was to capture the Dardanelles, the gateway to the Bosporus and the Black Sea. At the end of the campaign, Gallipoli was still held by its Turkish defenders. Thousands lost their lives in the Gallipoli campaign: 87,000 Turks, 44,000 men from France and the British Empire, including 8500 Australians. To this day, Australia also marks the events of 25 April. Among the dead were 2721 New Zealanders, almost one in four of those who served on Gallipoli. It may have led to a military defeat, but for many New Zealanders then and since, the Gallipoli landings meant the beginning of something else – a feeling that New Zealand had a role as a distinct nation, even as it fought on the other side of the world in the name of the British Empire. Anzac Day was first marked in 1916. The day has gone through many changes since then. The ceremonies that are held at war memorials up and down New Zealand, or in places overseas where New Zealanders gather, remain rich in tradition and ritual befitting a military funeral.

My Tube Ride

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

“Mum Dad can I please bring the tube out?” I shouted with joy.
Me, Mum, Dad and Mason arrived at Waitangi on Sunday at 11:30. We were excited to go on the tube. The reason we arrived at waitangi was because we were bored and we had nothing to do at home.

We went in the water and we had a drive. I shouted "Dad turn around we forgot the tube". We had to go back to the ramp to get it. It was so boring. Dad was going fast and some water even got in my face.

I hopped on first and I had butterflies in my tummy. I could see the waves curling up at the back and I could hear the motor grumbling.  Me and Mason decided to hop on together. We had a fun ride because mum and dad turned on all the  big corners.

I'm glad I had that day out.

100 Word Challenge.

My Class Had To Do A 100 Word Challenge And I'm not really good at writing but I do think I did great .


I was ready but mum said “don’t forget you are walking today Because the car needs repairing”. But I thought I had enough time to get to school. When I got out of the house I ran and I fell over. It was already 9:00. “I’m late” I said. I had to just keep walking. When I got to school the teachers growled at me before I could speak. I said what happened and they gave one more chance. It was embarrassing. And thats when I thought I had a enought time.
