WALT- write a complaint



Room 6
Halsey Drive School
106 Halsey Drive
Auckland

Dear Sir/Madam


My name is Meera, I am a concerned student at Halsey Drive School and I would like to inform you about 2 damaged cars outside 96 Halsey Drive.  These two cars are affecting not only me but everyone else in the lynfield community.


Firstly, it seems as the council is not aware that this incident had occurred 3 to 4 weeks ago and nothing has been done ever since.   It is taking up parking space. As this is a minutes walk from the public school, there are many ways for kids to get hurt because juniors may touch things like the bumper sticking out of the trunk of the red car and the shattered glass all over the floor.  


To reiterate,  this is not good especially since it is close to a local school. As you can now tell,  this is not a matter to be ignored. I advise you to go and remove these cars.


Yours Sincerely
Meera

Student in room 6

I liked the use of persuasive vocabulary although I think I could have linked my ideas better so that the complaints flew a bit better.

WALT - re-create a legend






We had to create our own Sina and the Eel video 

WALT- use mnemonics to improve our writing

Treasure



Esther handled her trolley carefully over rubbish piled on the floor. She scavenged around the rusty and abandoned dump searching for something useful.  Hopping into an old fashioned car, she was shocked by her seat falling back. “ Ah! What’s this.” she asked herself in wonder. Looking down at the dusty box surrounded by dirt and filth in the broken and rusted car. Enthusiastically raising the box in front of her face, she opened the mysterious box.  Hearing the magical sound of the crime of the ballerina dancing made her feel joyful. Several moments later, everything was being put into place.  The final item was raised up in the palm of her hand getting ready to drop it in front of the candle making a glimmering light shine upon her.
“ Is there anything in the world better than this.” she questioned herself while sitting in her chair


WALT- design a prior knowledge poster

WALT- create a character description

The Bearded Lady - A character description

The wrinkles on her face crept on towards her forehead as she looked distressed.  Full, creased cheeks overlapped each other. Her gloomy eyes curved downwards as gravity was pulling them. The eyes on her face reiterated the disappointment and hate she had received.  Her beard, starting from beneath her ears, trotted it’s way down a little below her chin and was always well kept and tidy. She always felt proud of it.


The deep, vivid black hair that was was placed on her head created a meaningful effect when the sun shone on her, trying to cheer her up  from the dreadful thought. The curls in her hair are topped in a bun joint to her beard. Her hands could smoothly run through her fingers.  Her lips are narrow although visible and have little cracks which are always covered. This is the face of a women who is disliked by many people, this is a face of someone who is different.
