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 "Monster Rumpus"

peace week 2017

I have been learning about Peace Week.
Peace Week is an annual tradition organised by The Peace Foundation every year. You can learn more about The Peace Foundation by following this LINK.

As a way to learn about Peace Week I did three different Peace Week activities.

With Miss Brennan we created a poster to help promote peace and Peace Week.
With Mrs Baker we made hand print doves and wrote messages of peace on them.
With Mr Horn we looked at the symbols of peace such as the dove and created origami doves.

Here is an example of one of my activities

We are learning how to do the hip hop and salsa.
My favourite  part was the part when we stuck our arms out and crossed our arms.
The hardest part was when Te Paea turned around and me holding on to her finger.


WALT:  Add a twist to our writing
Here is my poem.

I didn't pour gravy on the baby.
I didn't stick my toes up his nose.
I didn't put beer in his ears.
But I did go crazy on my tablet.

I didn't eat worm stew.
I didn't eat slugs in a mug.
I didn't eat snails on toast.
But I did eat noodles.

I didn't see ghost bears.
I didn' tsee zombie dogs.
I didn't see evil cats.
But I did see my auntie.

Next time I would like to make longer sentences.
