Letter to Tianjin Boarding school

Thursday 16 November 2017

 Elm Park School
Gossamer Drive,
Pakuranga,
Auckland

 Tianjin Boarding School
 To whom it may concern,
 Depressed,Sad, hurt, lonely, that is what Adeline is. Hello, to whoever is reading this, I just wanted to let you know that Adeline is a bright child with an open mind. She is very good at maths and writing. She loves to play ping pong. Also she has won a story writing contest. Adeline has been through very hard times and through those hard times she HAS given up but mostly she has stayed strong. She is very shy but is confident when she is speaking to someone she can trust. I think she really needs that. I think she needs someone to love and care for her just like her Aunt, Baba. So that she can be a bit more confident around people. As I already told you that Adeline is really good at math and writing but I think she needs a bit more improvement in sports . Maybe badminton, because she used to like to play Badminton with her friend Wu chun mei. Or maybe you could improve her ping pong playing skills so that she can get even better at it. Also you could get her to be more confident and teach her to speak up for herself because is not really that good at it. Thank you so much for reading my letter and I hope that you will look after Adeline more than her Family and appreciate her. I hope that you will agree with my opinion and try to do something to help the little girl. O e again thank you very much! Your sencierely, Abhilasha

My reflection:
It was a bit tricky to write a letter because I didn't really know what to write about.
I am proud of myself because I finally got my letter finished and also because I spelled sencierely right without asking anyone.
Next time I want to write a letter to Adeline's mean stepmother.

Swimming

Me being a donkey
Me with my friends!


First of all I love swimming so so much so I enjoy going swimming every single time and I never get bored of it.  I used to be so bad at swimming that I didn't even dare go underwater.  Now I am a lot better at swimming and I love going underwater and I also know how to swim and do some tricks.  If I ever do forget my togs I will kinda start crying (MAYBE).  Net time we go swimming my goal is to learn how to do a handstand in the water.

Speeches




My Reflection:
It was easy to write my speech but when I had to go in front of my whole class it was so scary I was crying from inside because I was nervous but somehow I got into the speech finals which was good but it was even scarier because I had to say it in front of all the year 5's, 6's and year 1's. I think it's scary because you are the only person standing while everyone is sitting down and staring at you.  Also there  were a few teachers which was even more nerve racking.

One Man Band

My Reflection: It was easy because we could see from the people's faces how they were feeling and from that we could tell why they were feeling that. Also because we had one person watching and telling us when the scene finishes and one person who tells us what’s happening and one person who was writing.

It's Holiday Time!


My Reflection:
It was easy to find the population of the cities/towns/countries because I used the Internet and my friend yovela and I were helping each other.  It was also easy because I knew how to compare one number to another because I had learnt this when I was in year 3. For example: I had to write which number  was odd and which one was Even.
