Reading Activity T1W4

For reading we have been reading a persuasive text about the Evil Drinking Fountain. We decided to write another persuasive text convincing someone the object we chose had a special power too. Here is my persuasive text about the Evil Pencil.

I knew that pencil was evil.

I saw Kruz use the pencil. He grabbed out a piece of paper then he tried to draw. Instead all he did was scribbles! Not a straight line.

I saw Jax use it then he got a piece of paper and he is a really good drawer. He tried to draw a fox head but instead he drew a wobbly line!

One day I used it. Later it was art and I'm very good. I was like “That thing is evil!” During art when we were drawing our portraits all I did was a weird face!

That's all the reasons why the pencil is evil.

Cave Paintings

In class we learnt about cave paintings and what they were drawn with. they drew them with  limestone, charcoal or red ochre mixed with animal fat.

I got this picture from CC Search.

Prove It 17

Can I use alliteration?

On halloween I went trick or treating. I was walking to the horrible haunted house. I went inside and I saw a spooky slimy skeleton. 'Blah blah blah' said the skeleton 'Ah!!!' I said. This is so scary and there is a vampire here. I better get out of here so I did. Whew that was a close one but they were following me without me seeing as I walked home. I went to bed I had these nightmares for the rest of the week because they were haunting me.

Prove It 16

Can I use carefully selected adjectives, nouns, verbs and adverbs?

One day I saw an elephant slowly walking across the road to the big chicken KFC for some reason so I followed. It was just someone in a costume. No wonder it looked weird, it was a giant drumstick! It was freeing the drumsticks from KFC and they were going to take over the world rapidly So I had an idea. I was going to eat them all but I will need help so I got some friends and munched on the big chicken and won the war happily.

The Day I Walked Alone

Am I going to get kidnapped or will I be fine? My heart was pounding and my teeth were chattering. I started to walk away from the gate. Oh no. My face turned bright red. Well hopefully this is not a disaster. 10 minutes later ... oh no! My voice turned super deep and my whole body is shaking, even my hands !!! 5 more minutes later I'm almost home. "Hooray" I said with excitement.

Here is a image I found on the website and a story I wrote about it.

Wow, this looks like a good place to camp. Hopefully there is not any creepy crawlers. If there is I'm sleeping in a tent. I went to take a nature walk. Two hours later... phew I nearly got lost out there. I went to see what is inside. Broom, broom. Oh, look it's Blake. He has the same idea. Hopefully this turns out to be good.

Green Pastures Camp

I liked to kayak with all my friends. It felt like a spinning wheel when you fall in the water. It looks so funny when someone else falls in the water. Everyone laughed at the people that fell in the lake. Lucky we had life jackets on. It was so much fun!!! It felt like the kayak was going to sink when it was getting pushed down the ramp like a boat. Oh no! I fell in. Ahhhhhhh... am I going to drown I wondered?  Yes I survived. I got to out of the kayak and just swam. Blake B was so cold when he got out. I wasn't cold it was so so relaxing in the hot weather just floating in the lake.

The Invisible Marble

Title: The Invisible Marble

Hypothesis: The marble is going to turn into a pearl.
The marble will explode.
The marble will sink.
The marble will fizz.
The marble will float.

Materials: Water, a cup, a marble made out of a special plastic

1. Get a cup and fill it up with water.
2. Put the little marble in the water.
3. Wait to see what happens.


1st: The marble sunk. Bubbles have formed around the marble. It looks like the marble has got smaller.

2nd: The marble disappeared. There are lots of air bubbles sticking onto the side of the cup.

3rd: The marble absorbed the water and now it has got bigger. When the marble is in
the water it is invisible.

4th: All of the air bubbles have disappeared. The marble is squishy and clear. When you look through
the marble it is like a magnifying glass. The marble is bouncy.

Result: The marble pulled some air in when it went into the cup and formed air bubbles. The marble
absorbed most of the water then got bigger and turned into the colour of water.
The marble turned invisible because it was now more water than plastic but you could pick it up out
of the cup and it was plastic still.

Adaptation : What if you used hot water instead of cold water? What if we used a bigger
marble that is made of the same things? Would it be the same.

Finally back at school the holidays we're fun but school is better because we get to learn and play with our friends and we can make new friends too.  We have been swimming in our nice school pool so that is why school is better. We had a snow ball fight, we wrote 3 secrets on paper then we scrunched it up into snow balls, we tried to guess who the snowball had been written by. We are making name monsters . Mine looks very cool.

L.I Can I use complex sentences?

I'm looking around and the person from the museum is telling us about all the healing plants in Gordon's Bush but all I saw was trees. Why is it just trees and bush? I also heard some birds and there was this tui that was following us but it went away when we went back to the parking area. My favourite part was when we had Kawakawa tea at the end.

Writing Prove It 24

L.I. Can I support my ideas with detail?

Ms O'Connor is the principal of Carlton school. She has short curly hair, the colour of her hair is brown, she is wrinkly. She wears jewellery that is sparkly. Ms O'Connor also wears glasses and high heels when she walks in high heels it sounds like she is stomping around the school. She helps us by hiring teachers, keeps as safe by making rules so we can not get hurt. It's lucky we have her here.

writing prove it 13

L.I Can I gain the interest of the reader? 

In the afternoon I went to the ball pit. There was a slide to go in. I was scared to go in but I believed in myself so I jumped in the slide. It was so slippery, then I splashed in the ball pit. I couldn't stop, lucky I didn't brake a bone.  When I climbed up this sticky plaster went in my mouth, so I had to let go. Oh, no I'm about to fall, but I grabbed on to a lollipop.  Wow, it saved my live! I used it as a pick axe. I got to the top. I was so happy that I ate the half eaten lollipop that helped me climb back up.

Green Pastures Camp

Two weeks ago on Monday He Puna Hangahanga drove to the mighty Green Pastures Camp. It was amazing. Some of our parents came with us. Their names were Rachelle, Damian, Pat, Coz, Keelen, Karl, Barb, Tracey, Miss Walker, Alan, Sheree, Liam, Mrs McGinniss, Mr Palmer, Miss Hulme and Mrs Palmer. My cabin was number 6. The people in my cabin were Blake B, Alex, Marshall L, Jesse, Cullen, Tracey and Me - Cody.
I'll tell you about the activities. We had horizontal bungy, kayaking, air rifles, archery, raft making, water slide and last but not the least the mud run.  The mud was thin watery mud at first then the last obstacle was so thick that I couldn't move so I got pulled up by raw power by one parent. His name is Pat. When I got back to the start there was a muddy bumpy hill. I climbed up the grass. I came 4th out of 42. That was my favourite activity. 

Writing Prove It 17 TW10

L.I Can I use alliterations?

On Camp at Green Pastures Camp we went on a mud run. It was sticky smiley smelly mud. The mud was so thick at the last obstacle. For lunch one day we had macaroni & cheese. The macaroni & cheese was spicy sticky and slimy. The bun was so crunchy that my teeth couldn't bite or chew it. Ow! That hurt when I tried to bite threw it. My tongue twirled and twisted everywhere.
