Hawaii #2

100 Word Challenge

“We´re nearly there!” screamed Qing Qing. I couldn’t hear her because I was distracted by the beautiful view from the plane window. I felt a slight rattle as we landed softly. We were all so excited, we stood up and started jumping wildly. “Yay!” we all screamed excitedly. The doors opened slowly, everyone bounced off the plane.

After walking a while we decided to have lunch. A foot long subway would full our tummies followed by a M&M cookie for dessert. “Crunch!” I heard the cookie getting eaten quickly by Schapelle. At last our journey came to an end!

The End

Hawaii #1

100 Word Challenge

“ Welcome aboard” I heard the captain say behind me. I was going on a trip to Hawaii, I was so excited.
All my best buddies were there except one. “ Hey were did Eliani go” I asked my friends. “ I don't know” Schapelle and Qing Qing replied. “ We better go and find her before the airplane takes off. So there we were searching around the whole airport for Eliani.

10 minutes later! “Eliani where were you?” We said.
We hurried back,  jumped on the plane 5 minutes before it took of. We were going to have the time of our life.

Reading Evidence

My Reflection
Walt: find direct or inferred evidence in the text to support a character trait for a particular character in the story.

I was able to identify character traits for a particular using evidence from the text. I can identify if the evidence is direct or inferred.
My next step would be to use the character traits and evidence to find the purpose of a character in a text.

Term 2 Showcase

Walt: Use Personification in my Writing.

Last week on Thursday Edge Water College came to Elm Park Primary School for a touch clinic. We went to the shade area and got put into groups of six. Then just like a long snake we walked onto the field where we were going to have the clinic.

When we got on to the field with our groups we  got put with Mario, he was 15 years old. 

The First thing we did was play octopus but it was a little different, the tagger had to hold half of a swimming noodle. Whoever is in calls out something like run if you have a jumper on then everyone who has a jumper on will try to run to the other side of the court. If you get tagged you have to stand in the place you got tagged and sway around and try to touch people to get them out.

Anyway after that we had a proper game of touch. I thought it was really fun and hope we get to do it again soon!

Maths Evidence

Walt:  find fractions of sets by using multiplication and division eg. ⅓ of 21 is 7.

Question : Freddy had 40 toy pandas, He shared them with his mates Max and Louis. Freddy gave Max 2/4 of the toy pandas and Louis had 1/4 of the leftover toy pandas. How many pandas do Max and Louis get each?

Success Criteria:I was able to use my knowledge of division facts to help me solve fractions of sets. I understood that I needed to divide the amount in the set by the denominator eg. 21 divided by 7 is I understood that I needed to find out what the fraction of a set was for a unit fractions was before I could find out what the fraction of a set when the numerator was more than 1.

Next time I will have bigger sets and bigger fractions to solve for my learning, to make it more challenging.

100 Word Challenge #2

100 Word Challenge

It was a stormy night and I was sitting in my favourite chair in the lounge with a hot cup of coco. I heard the thunder roar every second and saw the flashes of lighting every minute.

I decided to get ready for bed because tomorrow I was going to the olympic swimming competition. I got into bed, turned off my lamp and fell fast asleep.

Next morning I woke up at the crack of dawn, and got ready for the race. I got there just in time the whistle blew and  EVERYONE DISAPPEARED. The race was officially ruined...
