2 day wonder poem

Winter :  When I wake up in winter im in a mood not well no smiles and always freezing. I walk to school feeling deserted, the street is so muted it's like everyone moved out. When I walk to school I drag my shoes scraping my the ground leaving a long trail. The gate steps aside and lets us in.

Summer : When I wake up in summer its a beautiful day, flowers are blooming birds are chirping and on days like this everyone’s outside and joyful. The school gates welcome you in, and all you hear is laughter filling the air. When the bell rings no one rushes to class.

Today we have been writing our own version of Two day wonder by David Hill. We read this poem to under stand how to use juxtaposition and the two differences of having a good day and a bad one. Our version of this poem was describing our day walking to school in winter and summer.

Reading - Harry's War








For reading this week, we read a story called Harry's War. We read this story with my reading group. The we were to create quite a few DLO's. Our first DLO is about  vocabulary. This DLO  showed all the new words in the story. The Challlenging part was that we were to find the synonym and antonym. Following that we created a DLO called Evaluation. This DLO shows what we learnt from the text, questions we have after reading, and what the text was about. The third DLO was about the Bulford Kiwi. In that DLO we were to find,different facts, and information about the Bulford Kiwi. For these tasks, I worked with Jack, Sanujan, Jericho, Mataio, Savelina, and Zane.
