Writing Narrative

I am learning to write a narrative story.
I'll know I can do this when my stories have:
- Character - Setting - Introduction - Problem - Climax - Conclusion - Descriptive language such as similes and metaphors - Character speech using speech marks

This is a my narrative plan.

This is a narrative I have been writing. It is about an evil washing machine vs 2 boots called Lefty and Righty.

Something I found hard was designing my characters and using similes.

Something I learned was what a antagonist and what a protagonist is. An antagonist is a villain (or the opposite side) and a protagonist is a hero (or the main character).


Creative Writing - Scripts

We are learning to write scripts to create a play.

We know we are successful if our script has:
- multiple characters
- a setting
- character speech
- stage direction (in a different colour to the speech)

Once we have written our scripts we are creating the plays using Puppet Pals.

My play is called "The Big Match"

Writing: Information Reports

I am learning to write an information report.

I'll know I can do this when I can plan and write an information reports with a title, topic sentence, and a group of facts about a subject.

Something I found hard was getting the facts about whio.

Reading: Putakitaki

I am learning to make connections between the text and my prior knowledge.

I'll know I can do this when I can share what I already know about a topic prior to reading and make connections throughout the text.

Something I learned was what my new vocabulary meant.

Maths: Porowhita

I am learning to say the number one-thousandth, one-hundredth, one-tenth, one, and ten, etc, before and after and given whole number.

I'll know I can do this when I can solve simple addition and subtraction problems involving positive and negative numbers.

Something I found hard was getting my SMLs done.

Learner Qualities

I am learning to empathise.
I'll know I can do this when I can identify a variety of ways I can show empathy to others.
One way I can show empathy is by asking if someone is ok when they fall over.

Student Led Conference

My highlight at my student led conference was sharing my tiki art and my mihi art because it took a long time to finish.
 I am most proud of sharing my statistics poster because I got to share my graphs and what people think.
 I think my parents enjoyed my my monster soup because it had weird ingredients and it was funny.
Next time I would like to be more confident with my talking.


My learning goal this term is order and sequence the ideas in a text and understand correct grammatical features in a text.
I can do this by reading slower so I can understand the book properly.

Procedural Writing

WALHT write a procedure.
Something I learned about writing a procedure is that you need to number the steps in order for it to make sense.
Something I would like to do better is using adverbs more.
Here is my writing:
