Reading Goal Term 2

WALT: Organise text into order.

I think I have achieved this because I have worked on it for a while and I think I have achieved this goal.

In this photo we had to read a story and then write out the key points onto this sheet. Next we had to draw out the pictures for the piece of writing.

In the four areas we had to include the main ideas in order. I found this hard because it is hard to identify the main ideas.

I am walking down the beach looking at the sea crashing over the boulders. There are rocks out in the salty wet sea. It is so satisfying looking out in the beach with all the sand everywhere.  Crash!!! A boulder comes flying down right in front of me.


I can see a boulder about to hatch with cracks all over it. Standing here wondering if there is goo or slime or rocks inside the boulders. I am waiting for it to burst open when a giant wave crashes over me.

I can hear the boulder cracking and cracking wondering what pops out of it or what could pop out when suddenly, more come flying down Boom!! Crash!!
More and more what are these. All I can see are boulders crashing down in front of me.

I can smell The salty sea water blowing to me and some goo which i think is coming from the boulders. I can smell the salty rotting seaweed underneath my feet EWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!! What is wrong with this seaweed?


I can feel the tickling sand underneath my feet as well as the disgusting rotten seaweed that is soooooo salty!! The boulder keeps cracking open there are about a million cracks on it now. It is so cool watching it crack and crack.

I can taste salty water in my mouth from swimming as well as the seaweed that is stuck to the boulders. They crack every second now that it is open so much. There is another boulder it landed right on top of the one in front of me.

It landed directly on the boulder Boom! The bottom one cracks open it spurts out disgusting green goo eww I ring my mum she comes down to pick me up we both leave the beach with a photo of everything.

The Mirror In The Attic

resource image

WALT:write a “moment in time” piece of writing.

The Mirror In The Attic

The girl kneels carefully in front of the mirror curious about what might happen. She wonders why there is a lovely rectangular mirror in the attic and as it in perfect condition why is it not being used.

She sees herself in front of the mirror wondering how it is so clean. You would think it would be covered in dust because the whole attic is and the mirror is clean.

She can hear the creak of the wooden floor. It is very scary being up there alone with a mirror. I wonder what it would be like up there in the attic by herself, with lots of dust around her and a sparkling clean mirror.

She can smell lots of dust from the whole attic but at the same time she smells water. I wonder what it is from is it her breath where the water is coming from, she must be creeped out.
She touches the mirror it feels like water, that is the smell but how is it water. There are even ripples it is like what happens when you drop a rock in the sea.

She could taste the dust in her mouth while tasting her lunch she’d just eaten, but she can taste water as well. She hasn't had any water in the past 30 minutes, maybe it was the mirror, she became scared and then she leaves.

The girl comes back with her mum and tells her about everything. She asks her mum to touch it but nothing happens, how, it is impossible it's so weird her mum tells her she's weird and they both leave.

**************************************************
WHAT?
This week I am reflecting on one of my writing goals

IALT: Improve my writing by learning how to: 

* use a variety of sentence starters

This week I have been focusing on how to write a drop-in clause

SO WHAT?
Here is an example of a drop-in clause

Mr Forman is our teacher.
He loves his red car.
Mr Forman, who is our teacher, loves his red car.

Mr Forman is the subject of the sentence.
We change ‘He’ to ‘who’
We place commas around the clause we ‘drop-in’

MY EXAMPLES:
Here are two examples of a drop-in clause that I have created.
[1]Baxter,who is a skillful soccer player,scored a goal
[2]Baxter,the soccer player,is awesome

NOW WHAT?
I rate my understanding level at 9
My confidence level with using these types of sentences independently in my writing is 7

Term 1 Highlights

Term 1 Highlights

I have enjoyed doing swimming in the school pool because sometimes we get free time in the pool although the pool is cold when we use it because it is late at that time.
I have also enjoyed the different types of art like the wave art, the jump art and our own art the own art is where you get to do what you want to do.
I have enjoyed having a student of the day because it is fun and also when you get student of the day you get a fruit burst  after which is cool because in other classes you don't because its only Mr F that does it for a treat (we also get ice blocks if we are good).
When the year sixes were away at their camp the year fives got to make some flags with a poster and the the rest was boring work.
Mr F is a sport captain so we sometimes get to organize it.


I learnt lots of different strokes like....
1. Bulldozer
2. Worm
3. Caterpillar 
4. Kicking against someone that is kicking against you

This is what I learned at the Truck.....

Jack Simpson's Journal

Shrapnel Valley, Gallipoli

17 May 1915

This morning I was relieved that I had saved thirteen

people and survived.  At 5am there was lots of shooting

and we got lots of soldiers to the hospital tent but most

were very badly injured so they died.  We had to get

them back to the beach so they could go to the hospital.

At night we sleep on the ground.  It is not comfortable at

all.  In the night I woke up a lot because it was raining so

I walked down the hill to check on Duffy.  He was all

right but he looked very tired so I gave him some food

so he could get back to sleep.  I went back to where my

stuff was and kept trying  to get back to sleep.

I am sick of the smell of blood and sweaty bodies and of

the taste of bully beef.  I’m tired of being a stretcher

bearer every day.  I hope I survive this war.
