“We are going to the movies later,
want to tag along?”
asked Nathaniel.

“Okay me, Travis and Aaron will see you at 6.”
replied Nathaniel.
“Okay see you later!” said River.


Today Ms Kirkpatrick's writing group has had another speech mark practise by using the fake I phone texting site >Fake I phone texting site. This is a really good practise for us and to use speech marks properly. We started writing a normal conversation on the Iphone texting site and finished off writing on a google doc. Although we used speech marks to edit the messages on the doc. This was a fun yet easy task because we practised and did this exercise last week.

Poems / Summer vs Winter walking to school.


Summer
The sun beams as I walk outside while footpaths are packed with people feeling the warm summer breeze, instead of driving in their cars they're enjoying the wonderful gleam. I prance into school and the frisky feeling comes back, just like the time when the winter was absent and never came back until...


Winter

Treading outside sending shivers up my spine, I despise the winter and all of its grime. Roads congested with cars, people not wanting to step outside. I stroll into school while clouds link and shelter the sky while sunlight veils above the dusky grey sky bellow.



This week LS2 created their own poems about walking to school in the summer compared to the winter. The key was using our understanding of juxtaposition. We used juxtaposition to use two opposites to make the poem pop more and make the picture or story more interesting. We got inspiration from the poem called " Two day wonder " which went as a boy had a terrible day and he was sick and the world was boring and depressed, while the next verse was all happy and fun in games.

Another thing we did was use very powerful words in our poem. In my poem I have gotten breeze, gleam, frisky, shivers, despise, grime, shading, peeks and gloomy. Another thing we did was create a word cline. Marieta and I both did this activity collaboratively. If you are confused about what word cline's are then it is simply a scale going up from bottom to top. We then list weaker words from the bottom and working our way up using powerful words.

Problem solving / age


 
This week me and Sky worked out how old were the brothers with a little bit of help from Jack. At first we did the times tables challenge and I got a pretty good score for the first challenge. Also when we started this rich task it was very hard and confusing but we got more used to it in the end.
