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 smilies and metaphors - Character speech using speech marks

This is my narrative plan.     

This is a narrative I have been writing it is about Top who becomes evil and wants to destroy his best friend Spike the shoe .

Something I found hard was the problem.
Something I learned was that narrative is about a story that is real or fake.

Writing Report

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 my spelling because I had a lot of spelling mistakes.


In Taiao I have been learning about chickens. I have learned about the parts of a chicken, some facts about chickens, the parts of an egg (which I used to make an omelette), and what a chicken needs to be happy and healthy.

Something I learned was that there are other country's that eat different  parts of chickens.


In music with Mr McCullum I have been learning to play the ukulele.

I'll know I've been successful when I hold the ukulele correctly and can strum the cords.

Something I learned was the song smoke.

Learner Qualities

I am learning how to empathise

I'll know I can do this when I can identify a variety of ways I can show empathy to others.

I will empathise by helping others in need.

I am learning to apply our prior knowledge to a text.

I'll know I can do this when I can think of ways I have connections to a text and I can use those connections to help decode unfamiliar words and ideas.

Something I enjoyed was finishing my can do's and my must do's.

Art Don Binney

I am learning to create art inspired by Don Binney. I'll know I can do this when I have created a landscape with a foreground, middle, and background.

My bird and my background are coloured using pastels and natural colours.

Something I learnt was the birds because some of them have interesting facts.

I'll know I can do this when I can use column adding to solve problems.

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 Princess and Prince's Journey"
