Writing sample

WALT:  Entertain

Description: We read the poem “My Remarkable Journey” which inspired us to write our own remarkable journeys about why our homework wasn’t at school today. 

I was at school the bell was just about to go our teacher mrs lamo well her real name is mrs brown. But she said its time for us to grab our homework and go. we always get to go 5 minutes early so I can go do something cool like rock climbing our something like that. I grab my homework and then I fall over at the parking and land in a push up position. I get back up and looked for my homework then I saw it and grabbed it I walked to the car and jumped in. We got home and there was a giant he was as blind as a guy with no eyes. He said "I can't see anything I am blind but I can hear really good" you could see it in his eyes are really red. SUDDENLY!!! BOOM the giant shot a gun and my mum died. I ran as fast as I could but I fell in a hole and it led to school.

We decided that a quality piece of writing has the following things. Reflect on whether these things are in your story:
Introduction: It hooks the reader in the first few lines making them want to read more 
Punctuation: Is your writing ready for a reader? Does your punctuation make it easy for them to read?

Short sentences: Do you create suspense by using these in your writing?

Onomatopoeia: Are these in your writing to create impact?

Alliteration: Are these in your writing to create impact?

Similes/Metaphors: Are these in your writing to create impact?

1. What do you think is the best part of your story? The bit when the giant shots the gun randomly.

2. What was the hardest part about completing this portfolio sample?  The writing because I looked at my book and then over and over again.

3.  Next time, what is a goal you can work towards? Have more good ending

Feedback/Feedforward: cooper you did well I think you could make some more similes. #Maraki

Te reo

This is our te reo poster 

Description: We have been participating in 3 different workshops around colour, compositions and fonts.  We put these skills to use in a poster sharing our knowledge about Te Reo Maori.
Why? We have noticed that our posters are too cluttered and do not communicate a  message well.

Task: Make a poster about Te Reo Maori.

Message: My message is clear and purposeful.  Everything that is on my poster relates to my message. 

Composition:  My poster is balanced. 

Font:  My font is clear, readable and suits the message.

Colour:  I have used 2-3 colours that are complementary.  My background choice makes the text pop!

Accuracy:  All of the words on my poster are spelt correctly.

What are you most proud of and why? The colour because it is not bad

What challenged you the most and why? The layout because we couldn't find one like that

Next time, what is a goal you can work towards? The font because it's a bit to big

Feedback/Feedforward: I think you could work on the colour you used a bit to much # Lachlan
