Nice Work

Never use the word PRETTY, our teacher said.
It doesn't mean a thing!
Try…attractive, pleasant, charming,
beautiful, appealing, engaging,
gorgeous, lovable, dazzling,
stunning, irresistible, delightful-
The choice is as long as a string!
But please, never use the word PRETTY,
It just doesn't mean a thing!

(She’s pretty our teacher. )

For writing my group were focusing on reading a poem called Nice Work. After reading the poem we learnt about the phrase (as long as a string). Then we picked a word to create the same but changed poem. We added the synonyms to the word that we have picked. I have done the meaning of (as long as a string) and a example of the phrase as well.

In Inquiry we have been learning about a Maori legend we in my group were Brooklyn,Sky and I. The legend was a about the first women to be created. We draw a lot of pictures to tell the legend our own way. After this we created a Storyboard click here to get on the website.

The Unfinished Drink ( Ted d’Auvergne)

My class has been learning about Ted d’Auvergne because he was a young soldier and ANZAC has recently just happened but he has a interesting story behind him. In my group were Sky, Brooklyn and I. We learnt a lot about him and his unfinished drink. We re read this poem so we could know all the information I learnt that this poem was a narrative poem because it made us feel sad emotions as well as happy emotions. All of our information has been recorded on this presentation.

What it Looked like to Have Been a Nurse in WW1

Jack, Zane, Jericho, Mataio and I have created a DLO on what it would have been like to be a nurse in WW1. This is also about Edith Covell a nurse who was in the WW1. My group worked collaboratively to finish off this task. We did learnt a lot about how the nurses helped the soldiers or how they would take care of them. We were learning about this topic because it is almost ANZAC day and to show respect to those who cared for our country  at World War 1. 

Feedback - Grey Angels

In Reading our task was to read about the nurses that were a part of World War 1. Zane and I were set to do tasks about this. After doing the task we gave each other positive feedback this really motivated both of us to work positively together.
