Superhero To The Rescue

ast week in Te Ngahere, White Reading group read a play called Superhero to The Rescue. Superhero to The Rescue is a play about three children who are comparing lunches. Then a Superhero comes along and thinks that there is a bully amongst the children when really she just got the words they were saying muddled up. After we read the story we answered some comprehension questions. Here is my work.

4 Shot Video

A couple of weeks ago Te Ngahere started a new task called ‘Lights! Camera! Action!’. In this task we were told to make a storyboard for a 4 shot video. A 4 shot video is a video of only 4 shots, the establishing shot, long shot, medium shot and close up. My group’s video’s scene was the Whare. Our WALT was to tell a story in 4 shots. We had help making our video from Mrs G. Here is the link to our video - Link

My Report

The last week Te Ngahere was focusing on Report Writing. Our WALT was to write an informational report. First we had to write a report about a chosen country and we had to have a few subtopics. I chose Denmark for my country and my subtopics were currency, traditions and population. Then once we had finished that we wrote other reports about our country like the native animals there, sights, etc etc. Here is my first report.

Common and Proper Nouns

Last week in Te Ngahere we were learning to use Common and Proper Nouns for our Factual Reports. We had to buddy up and make a Google Drawing about Common and Proper nouns. I paired with Astin. The WALT was ‘We are learning to know how to use Common and Proper nouns’. The purpose was to use capitals for the correct words.

My Travels - Amsterdam

Hi Everyone! I am now back in Amsterdam, staying in a canal house (one of those tall, skinny houses beside the canal). We are staying win some old friends of my parents. Martin, Cath, Jack and Tom. Today we went on a canal tour, here are the photos I took . . .

Fun Fact: I have noticed that there are a lot of flags and objects with a symbol on them - three x's. I asked what that meant to the guy driving the canal tour boat. He said it represented the disasters in Amsterdam - The fire, the flood and the plague.

I hope you enjoy and I will be posting more soon!
