Using Quill helps others and I to get correct grammar, spelling and punctuation. Quill has taught me a lot about grammar, as before I started I wasn't doing half the grammar right.

Moment In Time Writing - Mirror In The Attic


Mirror In The Attic

Goal: I can use language that is suitable to the topic, audience and purpose. (Structure & Language)



Story Starter


I kneel down closer to the mysterious mirror, hoping to find something other than trouble. As I reach out for the mirror it suddenly makes a circular ball that feels like gel. I then find myself getting smaller the more I touch it, I stop touching it but I won’t stop shrinking. I’m scared, I’m terrified. I think I’m entering another world that doesn’t have mammals like me. All I see are animals, and I can see the animals haven’t seen anyone like me before. Doesn’t look like their tamed either.


It feels like every time I inhale the animals surround me even more, I’m standing in front of the mirror. I try touch it again to let me back in the world that I belong in, but it doesn’t work. This wasn’t planned. I look around this time more deeply into what’s around me. I feel like this world hasn’t been discovered yet as the animals are looking quite strangely at me.


All I can smell is the animal’s scents coming closer and closer I try to block my nose, but I just sneeze every time from the dust. I don’t like the smell of the animals, they aren’t like the ones that live with me, they're different.


I can hear the animals grunting at me as if I’m food, I think it’s hunting time here, and they don’t look happy. I can also hear the animals footsteps coming real close, they are nearly right next to me. What do I do?


I can taste the dusty dust particles still swirling around the air, it’s quite nice here, but it would be better without the angry animals. I can’t really taste that much as I had the day off school because I had a sore throat and that cold included me not tasting anything.


I finally try the mirror again. It works! Hurray! Maybe next time I should go to school and brave through the cold I have. That was an adventure of a lifetime.

Dance Term 2



I enjoyed doing dance because we all got through the fear of holding hands with a partner, and the Hip Hop made me practice, so even though we don't do dance anymore I still remember it.

I've been challenged by the Cha Cha as at the first session I thought I was going to never get it, but it turned out I did. I'm now really confident dancing around people.

I have surprised myself with how enthusiastic I was about dance, everyday for 2 weeks at 9:40am I would hop out of my seat ready for a fun session of dance with Dean.

I learnt to overcome my fear of dancing in front of people, I'm really happy I did.

I found dance exciting everyday I went, Hip Hop was probably my favourite because we learnt it faster than Cha Cha.

I would now like to learn more moves as I miss doing dance already.



If I Could Change Anything In The World...

6.3.17                                If I Could Change Anything In The World...

Quick Write

If I could change one thing in the world it would be not allowing humans to kill animals. I know we need the health in meat, but why don’t we just eat fish and get the protein by eating certain things other than meat. Some people can just be vegetarian, but why just some? Why doesn’t the whole world become vegetarian, you might think the world would be overpopulated with animals, but with nature they will die eventually.

Why?

All people have a heart for animals, even if they are a hunter they are probably just doing their job. This is why I think we should all be vegetarian and not dare to kill animals.

Run Bike Run Poem

WALT use poetic verse to recount an event we participated in.
The Run Bike Run event was usual enough; it had the
A game area, plastic red cones, the field , some ducks, and even a mini medal ceremony after the races.
My friends, my classmates and I did what kids do -  
Played  a year 6 game of tricky tag for pozis,
Walked around the course,
Waited for the Year 4’s and 5’s to finish racing,
Ran around a big exhausting track,
Finished with a number 6 card,
Puffed out after the race
Cheering for others
Doing the race made me proud of my team.

based on the poem “The Town” by James K Baxter
