The Race

Walt: write a quality recount.

Have you ever ran in jandals before? Well I bet you haven’t but I have. We had to run on our frosty looking field. I could tell we were going to have a long morning.

Before we went off to the field we had to put our shoes on (even though I was wearing jandals). Next we lined up and we walked to the field. No one even knew what we were going to do. Until Mr Goodwin gave us instructions. I didn't have a clue.

After that he gave us instructions. That sounded scary. Mr Goodwin’s instructions were to run to the goal post and back, and saying that was a big field. I thought that it wouldn’t be that bad but, then I thought I was gonna get real tired.

Finally we started the run. I got tired the first half, but I carried on instead of walking. I even nearly tripped over. Luckily there wasn’t a bull chasing me. When I got back lot’s of the kids were huffing and puffing. Like the Big Bad Wolf. I was too actually. I was a bit gutted that our teacher made us sit on the frosty, wet grass. Lastly we went to the taps for a drink. While I was walking because I was the front leader for the line.

While I was walking because I was the front leader for the line. Mr Goodwin said “Have a drink think how does it make you feel, with the water running down your throat”.  I was like “why would we want to think about that”. I laughed. But then I thought in my mind that it felt refreshing. Overall I thought that it was so tiring. But I if I got use to it then I would do it again but never ever in my life wearing jandals again.

Task Description: This week we have been learning to write a quality introduction and proper recount.

What I Did In The Weekends.

Walt: write a recount about our experience.
I went to see my mum in the weekends because I stay with my Nan. I went to New market because that’s where my mum stays. While I was there I was watching the TV and my favourite program was on Kim Of Queens. Once it finished this other program was put on and it was called dance moms. I was like "whaaaaaat!". So I let it slip and watched some I got bored after a while.

So I went for a short walk. While I was walking I saw a college called Dilworth college. They had this huge water slide and they mats to slide down sort of like those mats at parakai springs. I was watching the a little while but then i left. While I was walking I saw a Burmese cat and I even saw these little twins they looked they were two or one.

While I was walking past I found a very pretty flower and the name of it was a Pohutukawa tree flower. I picked a few and then went home. My mum really liked them so i put them in a vase with some water and put them on the living room Table. When I went to look in the cupboard and saw my sister in there looking all crumpled up. So I was like “what are doing in there” and she was like “I’m hiding now get away you're going to give away my hiding spot”.

Then i was like can i play next round and she was like “yep”. So I waited until they finished and then we did coconut coconut crack to see who would be in.

That was what I did In the weekends.

Task Description: I was writing about what I did in the weekends.

Tamaki Enviroment

Walt: Make connections across multiple texts.

I am excited for  Te Taio O Tamaki because it’s going to be a very cool experience. Te Taio O Tamaki means the environment of Tamaki. The environment of Tamaki is very important because we have lots of native trees and plants around us.
The native trees and plants are very important to the Tamaki cluster and us because some different species of plants and trees are very pretty like we have the harakeke around there and they like to stay around damp places. It also looks very nice when you do different weaves like flowers with it.

Task Description: This week we have been working on the environment and what native and plants we have around Tamaki.
