Golden Child recount

One beautiful sunny morning room 7 was getting prepared to go outside and play a game called golden child. Firstly we did the roll then we lined up in two lines. The girls line was straight and quiet and the boys line was very ciricked and noisey.

We headed off outside to the courts and we had  to vote. There were 2 options to choose. There were boys vs girls or yr5 vs yr6. We all choose boys vs girls. The girls had to shoot first and the boys were running first. The first boy to run was lopi. Lopi made it to the other side and helped the girls to get the ball and pass it back to the other person in line. Some of the girls shot the ball into the hoop and one of them was me.

The boys that had to stop on the sides were saved by the last person which was paula the golden child. Then all the other boys got to go on the other side because of paula. He was to fast for us to shoot into the hoop. We nearly got it in and got them out but we were to late the boys got there before we could get it in. so the boys won and the girls lost.

In the second game the girls were running and the boys were shooting the boys got some of us out but when the golden child ran we got to run with her and we all got to the other side and the girls won the second game of golden child. We came in together in a circle and we lined back up in two straight lines and we went back to class and we were so dehydrated that we went straight into class and grabbed our bottles. THE END

First day at kiwi can

Today, tuesday the 13th room 7 went to kiwi can. There were 2 new people and their names were Miss Latoya and Mr Matt. when we were going there we had to go to the TPS hall. We went there to learn about having a positive relationships with our friends. How we got there was to walk there.

Miss latoya and Mr Matt introduced themselves then we got into the energizer and the energizer was called musical bumps. How you play is that you play music then you walk around or dance and then when the music stops then you have to sit down and the last one sitting down are out.

After those games we learnt the new catchphrase. The catchphrase was kiwi “can says if you argue,sort it out,don't shout and work it out”. When we learnt that we were talking about positive relationships and respect to others.  After that we started to play a game of hangman and guess the picture. So you have to split into 2 groups boys or girls or  however you want to play the game and whoever got the most points you win. When we played the boys won and the girls lost. After that we did GKQ (general knowledge questions).

I thought that the new people werde funny and cool and that it was fun at kiwi can.

what do we remember about recounts

Today we talked about recounts, we had to try and remember what goes in a recount.
Here is what we came up with as a class.

Next we watched a video (Link to the video) and we wrote a recount about it as a class.

Who: the little girl, Annabelle
What: she was happy, she broke her camera, threw in the bin, camera came to life, made a photo of the girl
Where: small town, Mexico

How/Why: she slipped off the pole and dropped the camera
One sunny day
Picture of a balloon then it popped
Smiling with white teeth
Only Favourite camera

One sunny day Annabelle strolled around her small town, taking pictures of the many beautiful things. Click. Click. Click. She aimed her camera at a light red balloon and it popped just as she hit the shutter button. She smiled with white teeth as the sun rose high in the sky.

Hand slipped off the pole
Swinging, run up to
Fell on her butt,
Big eyes
Camera lense popped out
Laughing - hehe
She sighed
Cuddled the camera, threw it in the bin

She jogged around the town centre, swung around the lamp post giggling and suddenly… KABOOM! Her big eyes opened as she realised she was lying on the ground. Her elbow was scratched and beginning to bleed. Her favourite camera, which she nicknamed Camey was broken next to her on the cobblestones. She sighed deeply. She picked up Camey and cuddled him to her chest, then he fell to the bottom of the bin.

Girl walked up the stairs crying
Shake the binShut his ears,
Click shutter
Pants fell down
Went into garbage
Photo came out of his mouth
Flicked to her foot
She threw it away
Closed the door
Has an idea

Annabelle climbed the stairs with tears coming down her face. The bin began shaking, Camey was alive! He tried to get out of the bin, but it ended up tipping over. He crawled out and searched for Annabelle. She was at the top of the stairs, her back to him.  Camey rushed to the stairs and ah! His ears flung open. He pushed his plastic ears closed and kept running. She was almost gone! He pushed down on his shutter button and oh no, not again, his plastic pants fell down. He pulled them up quickly and kept sprinting. A polaroid ejected out of his mouth and he flicked it towards Annabelle. It slipped silently under her foot, but the movement caught her eye. She bent down, picked it up, and slowly let it drop from her hand. She closed the front door behind her and Camey was left outside feeling lonely.

Girl crying, looked up
Smile, laugh
Camey smiled
Button nose

Camey looked down at the disgarded photo; he had an idea. Click, click, click. Photo after photo after photo. He arranged them on the wall in a portrait made with love. Annabelle rested her head on her arms, thinking about her favourite camera ever. Something brushed her arm, she looked up and gasped. A 18m tall portrait of her profile covered the wall of the apartment opposite. She felt surprised and happy. How had this happened? Who had made this gift for her? Then she noticed. Her favourite camera, Camey! How had he gotten up here?!?! She embraced Camey and her smile returned.

She prepared for their next adventure; she picked up Camey, bought a new repair kit and set off for the forest. She wondered to herself, ‘what magical portrait he would come up with next..’
