Harry's War - Comic

Today my reading group Percy Jackson read a comic called " Harry's War " It was an interesting comic. It was about a soldier called "Harry". Harry lived on a farm with his friend "Ted". It explained how Harry felt in war. He was bored, unhappy and depressed. Harry sent a postcard to his best friend " Ted ". He wrote how he felt about camp and being a soldier, he also asked Ted some questions about him. Like "How are you doing?" or "How is the farm?". I learnt two new words/palaces by reading this comic.

ANZAC Day Is Coming!

Today we wrote a cinquain poem about ANZAC. A cinquain poem is basically a describing poem. The first line only has one word which is the title. The second line should have two words describing the title, the third line should have three words expressing actions. The fourth line needs to have four words expressing feeling and lastly the fifth line needs one synonym for the title. Now you know how to write a cinquain poem! 

In the comments below tell me your favourite thing about ANZAC Day.

Chuck! Check! Cheer! - Ing

(Click on picture to see better)

For reading on Tuesday we did "Chuck! Check! Cheer!". We had to make up as many words as possible with the letters "Ing" in it. I have at least over one hundred words. I was very impressed with how many words I wrote. I really enjoyed this because I kept on having competitions with my group. 

I got a little help from my mum and dad. My dad decided to be a funny guy and add " Farting" when I wasn't looking. When I got back to my laptop I saw "Farting" there and started laughing hard out!

Role Models - Duffy Assembly

Today we had a Duffy Assembly. Robert Rakate was our Duffy role model. He played "The Brown Wiggle" in The Wiggles and made a song about New Zealand. Lots of kids LOVED it! Robert is a funny guy he, started to act like "Dwayne Johnson". He made everyone at Ruapotaka School laugh and giggle. 

He started to talk about how important saving our books for our kids, grandchildren and so on. His speech was very inspirational and convincing.

Her and her friend, "Joseph" made a traditional dish called "Makira Pudding". It's made out of cassava and coconut milk. "You must be very patient" Say's Rosemary.
