Learning About Explanation Writing

My Reflection

I have been learning about Explanation Writing.  I know that Explanation Writing tells about how something works. I found the quiz  easy because it has some clues between the text.
My next step is to write my own Explanation.

Term 3 Week 2

Yesterday all the year 4's , 5's and 6's did cross country.  Some kids were really exited.

First Mrs Howard gave us all instructions at the shade area.  She sent all the year 6 and 5 kids first.  Mrs Howard and Mrs M timed room 28/29.  We went really far.  I was so tired.  I was running with my friend Ella.

Then when my friend Ella was gone I saw a girl from my class called Charlotte.   She was tired too like me.  So  we both decided to run together.  We also saw  some teachers on the way too.

After a while we both started to walk and then we started to walk.   We did that again and again until we saw the next teacher.

 Finally it finished but some kids kept going and had another run.  When room 28 and room 29 came back Mrs M wrote down our time.  While that was happening I went to have drink with Charlotte and then sat with my friend Ella.

 I felt really tired but overall I thought it was a GREAT DAY!!  I am looking forward to do much more better in cross country next time.

My Reflection

It was Tricky to run without water. My favourite part was when we went over the bridge.Did you know that cross country is the only sport that has true  national championship.

  My Reflection

In room 28/29 we are learning about fractions.A fair share is when something is equal.  Equal means when something is the same size. A fraction has three parts called the: Numerator, Vinculum  and Denominator.  The numerator shows how many parts we have.  The denominator shows how many parts the whole is divided into.  It is so much fun to learn fractions!!!

Tree Planting

Today me and my whole class went to plant trees.  I was so excited.  We went behind the field to plant the trees.

First we had to get into groups of two.  I was with Emma S.

Then we had to get a shovel.  There were black and orange shovels.  We chose a black shovel.  We both had turns digging.  We had to plant our trees on the slope by the fence.  There were three people  helping everybody called Anna, Paul and Carl.  We had to put a round blue thing called fertilizer pellet before we put the plant in because it helps the plant grow taller and faster.  When I Emma and I were planting we saw a big fat wriggly worm.  We got so scared.  We called paul and he took the worm in his hand and then went away. Mrs M and Teryn were taking photos.  There were plants like toi toi, flax and cabbage tree.

Finally it was time to go.  We washed our hands  and went to class to get changed because we had to wear something else so we don't get our uniform dirty.  My shoes were really muddy so I took them off.

I felt tired because we had to work really hard to plant the trees.  Overall I thought that it was a BRILLIANT day. My favourite part was when we had to dig.  I am looking forward to doing this again.
My Reflection

I was learning to add detail to my story to give the reader more information.  
I also used  some adjectives to discribe things.
I added my thoughts about the day.  My next step is to add some wow words.

My Reflection

I chose this background because it matches with my quote.
It was really tricky to choose a background because there were lots of good backgrounds to choose from.
It was easy to choose a quote because  it had the same quote again and again so that means it was a good quote.
