Acrostic Poem

Our Little Friend

Walt: think about my purpose and reader by planning my recount.
Cracks, Screams,  Races !
Did you ever have a little friend ? Well Mr Goodwin’s literacy class have had an experience of having a little friend and would like to share with you.

Our Little friends were little eggs! I thought our teacher had gone insane! Anyway, when we got our little friends, we had to be really really careful in case we drop them. Me and Hethet were panthers for this activity. When we had to draw a face on the egg. And we also got to name them. Me and Hethet name our little friend Abby.

After naming, and drawing a face on our eggs, the whole literacy class went to the senior park. On the way, to the park Me and Hethet took turns holding Abby. Hethet went first. By the time we got to the park Hethet was holding the egg.

Do you know what we did when we got to the park. Well I’ll give you a little hint : balancing an egg ! Well if you guess balancing an egg then you are correct ! So Anyway when we got to the park we stopped by the corner and Mr Goodwin gave our next instructions. After he first gave our instructions he gave out spoons. It was really hard, because we had to balance our little friends on spoons.

What I thought about this weird experience is  that was kind of fun, some of our classmates dropped their little friends and some ended up wit
h cracks in them. It also was really hard balancing an egg on a spoon, but fortunately I was last to balance Abby on the spoon.I had a great time and I wish to do this next time. But next time I would like to be panthers wit someone else. Because Hethet was sad after giving our egg back.

Description of Learning :
Today we learnt how to write purpose. To write our paragraph we did egg racing, we learnt how to write about our topic and don't write about something else.

Walt : We are learning to use onomatopoeia to help create interest in our writing 

Description of Learning : 
Last week, Ms Tito's literacy group, (Known also as Mr Goodwin's literacy group) learned about Onomatopoeia. Onomatopoeia is a word that mimics the sound of a object or action it refers to.When you pronounce a word, it will mimic it's sound. E.g : Zip ! My dress was fastened and the girl was finally ready for the wedding. Anyway, our task was to go on to Google, then we had to type up Onomatopoeia. After that, we had to choose an Onomatopoeia to draw. As soon as we are done doing that. Then we had to think about what the word is used to mimic the sound of, and then we draw it. Then we had to colour, cut out and take a photo to display on our blog.

Team 4 Market Day

Team 4 Market Day

WALT: write an interesting and detailed recount

Have you heard of team four’s Market Day ?

Well you’re in luck because I'm going to be talking about the Team 4 Market Day. It happened on Friday last week. It was so much fun and crowded with students and teacher looking for products to buy. And it was Great !! Want to find out more Info ? Keep Reading !

Market day was the biggest event in the whole term three.The reason why we had a market was to sell and buy products that other trade and enterprise groups had been making. We had a lot of trade and enterprise groups, they were called Kitchen, Jewellery & Accessories, Music, Custom Stationery, Toys and Homeware. When we first were in our groups we had to get into business panthers. My Business panthers are Heather and Henslahval, ( We call her Lahval for short).

Everyone started setting up for the Market, that was happening after morning tea. In the year 6 area, Homeware, Custom Stationery and Music were setting up their stations. In the year 5 and 4 were the Toys and Jewellery & Accessories who were setting up their stations. Which only left one group which was Kitchen, the kitchen group was in the mid of the two classes, in the bay where students  play when it’s raining outside.

When the market was started, Me and my business panther Heather were first on selling. We had a few people coming to our stall in the beginning, until we got to the mid of the trade and enterprise market. Because we had nothing left that’s why we started to make some more products to sell. A Lot of people came to our stall it was really fun. We even had some visitors visiting groups and purchasing products. We made a Necklace sets, Necklaces, bracelets, Rings and much more.

I had a lot of fun but I didn’t really buy anything, because I was saving for an auction. I did order products from other groups. I ordered a soap with a minion on it from the Homeware, a squishy ball from the Toys and a Maths book cover from Custom Stationery. I already got my Maths book cover, I'm just waiting for my other orders. I ordered had a minion on it, with a ukulele and it’s going to smell like blueberry.

My thoughts about the market,  were really good thoughts.  Basically because we were really having a good time at the market place. And I made a lot of money, by the end of the market. And I started with 12pt. But I did wish that I would have made more jewellery. Cause we kinda ran out of jewellery. But we did pay off our dent to Mrs Mackinlay, because we needed to pay 15pt to Mrs Mackinlay, cause she brought us the materials. So that’s why we had to pay her, then after we payed her we could keep the money we got from the clients and customers.

About the Trade & Enterprise Market

It all started with assembly. We went to another school assembly. It began with the same national anthem of New Zealand. After an hour or more the assembly was over.And we went back to class, and did silent reading. Everyone sat down with a book,  and started reading. I read my library book, that I got from the School library. After Silent reading, we had to go to our home room. After we went to our home room, to do the roll. We could go to our Trade & Enterprise groups,  my group is jewellery & accessories.

In jewellery & accessories,  our group teacher had a chat with us. She talked about what we were doing in this block. She also talked about where our group was going to be in the year five & four block. Which was across the middle, which had some groups that were from the Kitchen group. Anyway we all had to move from the year six six & some year five block to the year five & four block. We went through the sea of students, to Mrs Jacobson ' s classroom. 

When my group got there. Heather one of my business partner asked the our teacher Mrs Mackinlay,  where our group's stall was. And she said we were at the back of the classroom. We got ready and put our products in front of the stall. We also had a lot of people who came to our stall. Me, lahval and Heather had a lot of customers and friends. 

By the end of the market we had no idea we would have no products left by the end of the market. So that's why we had to start making some more. And we had two clients who are going to get their purchases on Monday next week.  

My thoughts about the market,  we're really good.  Basically because we  were really having a good time at the market place. And I made a lot of money,  at the end of the market. I actually had 21pts. Because I had 12pts, and I had 9pts which equals 21pts.

This Presentation is about Ancient Egypt. Me and my sister thought we should do a presentation about Ancient Egypt. We also put a hieroglyphic alphabet chart,  And maybe if you guys want there is a cool activity in there that you can do with a buddy.

About Cross Country

Puffing and tired I finished the Year Six girls run !

If you guessed that I just finished running, then your correct.Because it was week 8, which also meant the it was cross country.

Yesterday on Monday the 7th of September 2015. At Cross Country is was really exciting and muddy run.The Event was a surprise, for me and my sisters. Because we didn’t go on Thursday or Friday. So without knowing I gave it my best shoot.

Cross Country is a day, that Point England School Students, train for the Whole year.Cross Country happens is term 3.Sometimes it happens in term 4. But it depends on the Weather.

On Cross Country, we went and sat on the hard court. After then Mr Burt stood on a chair, spoke for a few minutes. Then Ms V, our school sports teacher spoke for a few minutes too.

Then after a few minutes, we started to have people running. And then the year 6 and year fives moved to a different place, so we could see better.

After a few other years ran, it soon was the year seven boys. After the year seven boys, the year six girls got called to the liner. Which is were we started the run.

Anyway, after we got there, me and Inez who was going to ran with me.
As soon as Mr Burt started the run, every year 6 girl sprinted to the cone, on the other side.

After that We keeped running to the gate, and then we went through the gate, out of school grounds and, onto the reserve. And continued running until we got to Mr Somerville and went straight.

We keeped running until we got to Ms Nada, and keeped running. After running it took me and Inez one hour to do one lap.

Because our run was so long, and hard. My Feelings about Cross Country, are hard to say. But above all I had a pretty good time.

Project Recycle

Hi Everyone 
This Presentation is about Recycling. Why me and my sister made this presentation was because lots of people all around the world are forgetting how to recycle. For an Example : People could make their own gift wrappers instead of buying gift wrappers, you could just create a your own, and also be more creative.
And you also can protect the Earth. Because each year, Americans throw away 138 billion straws and stirred. But Skipping the stirrer doesn't mean drink your coffee black. You could simply put your sugar and cream first and then pour in the coffee, and it should be well mixed.
