Creative Piece Of Writing

Two  weeks  ago in  Te Ngahere we were  learning  to use the correct structure for a creative piece of writing. The language features I was using were alliteration, metaphors and onomatopoeia. The theme of the writing was about reducing, reusing and recycling.  I think I did well on using my metaphors and I think I need to work on my alliteration.   

Language features: Alliteration, Metaphors and onomatopoeia  

Let’s stop littering
Our sea creatures will soon die
It is polluting     

Acrostic poem  

Polluting is bad
Our sea creatures could  die
Let's stop littering
Lets stop now  
Unless you want to make our country look ugly
This can cause diseases
It can cause tourist to stop coming to our country  
Our environment will look ugly
Now is your chance to stop….

There's rubbish on our land fill  
The rubbish will literally kill  
Our sea creatures will soon die
The rubbish on the beach will fly

Onomatopoeia poetry
Swoosh, Swoosh, Swoosh
The sound of plastic wrap flying
Woosh, Woosh

Poems with a twist  
People picking up rubbish
sea animals saved  
People using heaps of energy  
Sea animals die

Dying animals
Lots of rubbish  
People caring for animals
People caring for our country

Metaphoric poetry
It is sad
It is a polluter
It is a killer of sea life  
It is ongoing
It is  invincible

Persuasive writing

A couple of weeks ago in Te Ngahere we were learning to

use a persuasive structure correctly. I think that I needed to work on my punctuation. Also I think I did well on my question marks. The writing piece that we wrote about are  either ’Should plastic bags  be allowed in supermarkets?’ or ‘Should we start Reducing, Reusing and Recycling?’

What do you think? Should we reduce, reuse and recycle or should we pollute the earth? Your choice. . . I think we should start recycling because if we don't
it can cause less natural resources, pollution and many more. But if we do start reducing, reusing and recycling we  will be a happier and cleaner country than we already are.  

If we start reduce, reusing and recycling then our sea creatures won't die from plastic bags, aluminum cans etc. There  are  nearly of 300 albatrosses that die every year from the pollution. There are  also over 1,000,000 turtles that die due to plastic. When people start polluting, the fish eat the rubbish, then when you go fishing you catch the fish, then you eat the fish then you could get really sick. Around the world all 1,000,000 birds that are on the beach die from plastic.

Did you know that when you pollute, tourist’s won't come to the country?  
Then that means we will lose money for our economy. When tourists come to
our country we get a lot of money. We got approximately 745 thousand dollars for  tourists. Would you really want to lose that money???

Think about it, would you like to start reduce, reusing and recycling??
Or would you like to just let the sea creatures die, tourists not coming to our country. I know for sure I would go for the first option.

Maths goals

Last week in Te Ngahere we were learning to identify our next learning goals in maths. After that we had to fill out an Ican sheet and choose 3 goals from there. Then we had to put our goals on a google drawing. I chose these goals because I felt like I needed to learn something new in maths and I didn't understand the equations that we were given at Stage 7 Here are mine down below. . .

Information report

For a couple of weeks, Te Ngahere has been writing Information reports about one country. The country I chose was Russia. We did this by watching a couple of videos of how to write one. Then after we chose 3 to 4 subtopics. I chose 4 sub topics. The topics I chose were the population, the variety of foods, their sports and their dangerous animals.


Did you know that Russia has had lots of historic events since the year 1870. Today I am going to write information report about russia’s Foods , Sports, Population and animals.

Russia is a very big country. In fact Russia is the  largest country in the world. Russia has a population 143,375,006 people. THAT is A LOT OF PEOPLE. Russia is 17000 square miles long. THAT IS LONG!!  

Russia has a lot of sports. Some sports that I haven't heard of in my life. For example  one of the sports is Bandy. That is a funny name for sport. (In a nice way) Bandy is russian sport known as russian hockey. It is also known for a national sport. Russians play more sports like Volleyball, Rugby, Weightlifting and heaps more. They have over 20 sports

Russian’s enjoy a different variety of  foods. They eat scraps of meat, veggies and turn it into a very nice food. The most popular food their is soup (Borscht) That is also made from meat and veggies. The is also one of russia’s  famous pies called kulebiaka. It's a Pie filled with Egg, Meat ,Chicken and Cabbage.

Some russian animal are very dangerous. This is including    the grey wolf  ,The Wild Boar and the Lynk. The Russian animals have some discrete habitats. Like the lynx it lives in boreal forests, The grey wolf lives caves in rainforest. And finally, the wild boar lives in tropical rain forests .

There are many things to do in Russia that I just told you about. There animals are very dangerous, There food is made from  food  scraps, Russia is the most biggest country in the world, They have 143,375,006 people in the country and they have had historic events going since the year 1870.

Writing Goals

Last week Te Ngahere were learning to identify their new learning goals in writing.  How we did this is we selected the goals from last term that we didn't achieve. Then after that we would look on the writing rubric against a piece of writing we did. The main goals we were looking at were organisation and sentence structure. After  the teacher would check it we would put it on a google drawing and decorate it.
