my writing

Last week in Te Ngahere, we were learning to use the correct structure for a persuasive piece of writing. Our goal was to persuade people to reduce, reuse and recycle the amount of rubbish and plastic they use by describing what happens. That is mine down below.


WALT Use descriptive language.

My Descriptive Writing

Save The Animals!

‘Save the animals from what?’ you ask? Well, from humans! Our litter is most responsible for many marine, birds and surface animal’s deaths. I will be telling you some common rubbish that kill, what could happen and how to prevent it.

Fishing lines and hooks

What can happen: Birds frequently get their beaks wrapped or wings tangled up in discarded fishing line. Hooks can be swallowed or become attached to birds’ skin or beaks.
How you can help: Be aware of what is around you. If you spot fishing litter, pick it up and dispose of it.
Beer and Soda Cans
What can happen: Even the tiniest animals can become a victim to litter. Soda cans are tempting to small animals who are looking for food or shade. A little skink got stuck in one once. Luckily for the skink, it was freed during a beach clean-up. Animals can also be cut by the can’s sharp edges.
How you can help: Dispose of your cans. Rinse and crush cans before tossing them into the recycling bin. You can also fold the tab back to block off the hole on the top.
What can happen: Animals usually step in gum, which can become stuck or tangled in their fur or feathers, making it difficult for them to move.
How you can help: Never spit gum onto the ground. Wrap it up in the wrapper and put it in a bin.
Tin Cans, Cups or Jars
What can happen: Hungry animals that want just a few crumbs often get their heads stuck in discarded cans, cups, and jars.
How you can help: Rinse out containers and crush metal cans before dumping of them. Remember to put the lids back on them.
I hope you enjoy reading this and follow the advice given.

My Mihi Reminder

This week in Te Ngahere, we made a visual mihi to help us remember our morning mihi. We had to choose carefully because we had to have a reason why we choose them. On the second slide, I thought an image of the clouds and sky would make sense because it say who ever in the sky and in the heavens. Anyway, here is my google slide to help me with my learning. Enjoy!

Term 4 Writing Goals

Last week in Te Ngahere, we were learning to identify our next learning goals in writing. For a start, we had to choose at least 3 writing goals, we need to learn or to get better at. After that, we made a google drawing to paste our learning intentions on. This one is mine down below.

Term 4 Maths Goals

Last week in Te Ngahere, we were learning to Identify what we have achieved in maths and our next learning steps. Firstly, we had to identify our next learning steps. Then, we had to display three of our maths learning goals on a google drawing to print out. I choose my goals because I didn’t get them and I wanted to learn more about them.  Here is my math’s google drawing :

Reading Reflection

A few weeks ago in the green reading group,  we read a book called The Bullet. We were learning to use a range of strategies to answer comprehension questions. We had to look at the pictures and make a prediction. Before we started to read it, we had to skim and scan for words we don’t know.  Here is my presentation. Enjoy!

My Informational Report

3 weeks ago in Te Ngahere, we were learning to write an informational report about our chosen country that was not ours. I choose the United States of America. We had to choose 3-4 sub topics about something in the U.S like a native animal or their traditions and rituals. Just to make it easier to find exactly what you want to know about Americans, I have used a table of contents. That’s my writing link down below.

What's The Difference Between A Proper Noun And A Common Noun

Last week in Te Ngahere, we were learning to know common and proper nouns. We had to make a google drawing to show our audience the difference between a proper noun and a common noun. The difference is that a common noun is not really telling the audience precisely where you went when the proper noun tells you where exactly where you went. That’s mine down below. They are my examples of using proper nouns and common nouns.
