I am learning to write a narrative.
I'll know I can do this when my stories have:
- Character - Setting - Introduction - Problem - Climax - Conclusion - Descriptive language such as smilies and metaphors - Character speech using speech marks

               This is my narrative plan.

               This is narrative .I have been writing. .It's is about a sleepover .

               Something I found hard was trying to put my ideas together.
               Something I learned was there is a problem in a narrative.

Creative Writing - Scripts

We are learning to write scripts to create a play.

We know we are successful if our script has:
- multiple characters
- a setting

Once we have written our scripts we are creating the plays using Puppet Pals.

My play is called "The Princess"

Peace Week 2017

have been learning about Peace Week.
Peace Week is an annual tradition organised by The Peace Foundation every year. You can learn more about The Peace Foundation by following this LINK.

As a way to learn about Peace Week I did three different Peace Week activities.

With Miss Brennan we created a poster to help promote peace and Peace Week.
With Mrs Baker we made hand print doves and wrote messages of peace on them.
With Mr Horn we looked at the symbols of peace such as the dove and created origami doves.

Here is an example of one of my activities

Student Led conference

My highlight at  student Led conference was  my statistics  because I let my mum look at it .

I am most proud of sharing my maths because I finished  my SML.
I think my parents enjoyed it because I finished most of my learning.
Next time I would like to make things a bit better and be more descriptive about my learning and words.

WALHT add a twist to our writing
Here is my poem

I didn't go to a play date because it was raining.
I didn't  zoom to the moon.
I didn't  know that I was going home.
But l did know that  I was moving house .

I didn't eat an ice block  because my mum said l can't .
I didn't eat a worm in my apple .
I didn't eat pop core because my dad ate it all .
But l did eat chips because I went to the movies .

I didn't see a horse because l went to Queens town .
I didn't see my sister up a tree .
I didn't see my friend because I was in the bath room.
But I did see the sea at the beach.

Next time I would like to make it funny.
