5/5/17 Writing

Finally we sank into our vehicle seats with a tired sigh after a long walk back from our campsite at rainbow ski field. The sun, hot and powerful, beamed down on us as we ate our lunch hungrily. ‘Swim?’ asked mum. Before long we were at the edge of the nearly frozen over tarn.


The water felt like a whole lot of ice cubes, nipping at our bare skin. When Mum and I finally got the urge to jump in, it was already  time to get out. Wrapping our warm towels around our freezing bodies, we jumped into our car and drive home content with the day's excitement.

Child Poverty in Africa

Did you know approximately one in three people living in sub-Saharan Africa are undernourished? It is estimated that 239 million people (around 30 percent of the population) in sub-Saharan Africa were hungry in 2010.

Every year, 7.6 million children die before they even reach age 5.

Zoom Out

This activity needs your help. 

You are invited to build on to the story by adding a comment. This means you need to zoom out of the image below with your imagination...like where is the gecko? What else might be in the picture if you zoomed out a bit? What might happen next?

Be sure to read others' comments first, and continue the story, by zooming out even further. We could build an amazing story. Give it a go!



So, here is the start of the story...
I poked my head out of the lush green leaves of the kowhai tree, my camouflage covers me like a shield, luckily it does because I would be dead if it didn't.

ANZAC

We have been doing some writing on ANZAC,here is my work:
ANZAC

BANG, CRASH! The war has started, as I sit in the trench I think of my father and then I suddenly remember his favourite saying, before his last words he reminded me of it and said think of it as a souvenir to take you through the war.

This is it:
No matter how far you go, no matter how much you think, no matter how many times you forget me, I will still care for you.

This is my mask that I made.
                       The man that saved my live

Evie stomped through the forest on her way to school, and suddenly came across a path way that she had never seen before, she looked at her watch 8:42 she still had time. After awhile of following the path Evie came across a ring, she looked behind it... she saw another one, and another one!
In number knowledge this week I worked on decimals, Whaea Jane taught me that if you had the question how many 1/10 are in 4.6 ? all you have to do is turn 4.6 into 46 (take the point away) and 46 is your answer!!!
Also if the question was how many 1/100 are in 5.20? the answer: 520, same thing is happening!!

news paper article

This is my news paper article:
On Thursday night a teenaged boy was discovered in the soon to be opened Igloo stadium. Rob Gale was just shutting down the stadium when he heard a boy's voice shouting “HELP!” He rushed over to where he thought he heard the voice...the midnight run in the climbing wall area “what are you doing up there?”said  Rob.
The boy said “it doesn’t matter just help me down please!” So Rob talked him down the hardest climb in the stadium with no rope, he was very impressed.

Quote from Rob: “I am a good climber, but this guy is a natural!”
