Kiwi Sport - Reflection

Today we had our first section of kiwi sport. We were splitted into 3 groups, and then we played a game called netball rugby, This activity was about team work and passing the balls around to your team mates. This activity can help you improve on your passing skills and also your team work. I would like to thank Hamish for coming today and coaching us.

Word Clines






















Today we created a DLO about words clines. All the words had to mean the same thing and to relate to the same topic. I think that clines are words that we can use to make more powerful sentences.

A summer and winter walk

In summer I get dressed for school and make sure my arms see the sunlight.
The street awake and chattering.
Trees motionless and attractive.
Birds are flying and whistling.
Clouds high in the sky and far, far away from humanity.
Carefree people laugh and smile.
The bell goes but no one hurries to class.

In winter I get dressed for school and make sure my arms are hidden from the darkness.
The street asleep and silent.
Trees moving and unsightly.
Birds are hiding in their nests.
Heavy clouds are low in the sky, nearly touching the earth.
Downcast people moan and whine
The bell goes and everyone hurries to class.


Today John, Miki and I, wrote our own version of Two Day Wonder by David Hill. The poem was a about a good day and bad day. We created our own version that describes walking to school in summer and in winter to show how writers can use juxtaposition to paint a clear picture in the reader's mind. Juxtaposition is when two things are side by side that are opposites.

To help us use powerful describing words we looked at synonyms. We then used the synonyms to create a word cline. This helped us to see some words are stronger than other words. We tried to use strong words to hook in our audience by painting a picture in their mind,

Hineahuone



This Term for inquiry we read a book called Hieahuone. Freeman and I created a storyboard that to show the story in our own words. we had to draw it on paper before we created a storyboard that. The thing Freeman and I did great was coming up with new Ideas.

The Unfinished Drink


This term for Poetry we learnt about a poem called The Unfinished Drink. We created a DLO, with a 25 word summary. The 25 word summary was about La Tour Mollet (Ted) D'Auvergne and how he didn't finished his drink before he went to war. This story was sad and happy, the sad part was that he died in the war and the happy part was that people remembered him.
