News Report By Pearl and Maarya!

WALT: Use a speaking frame.

This week in reading we learnt about DNAs. After researching and reading articles, we were asked to create a news report which included information given from the book with a buddy. Maarya was the reporter and I was the filmer. I think we did a good job trying to memorise the speaking frame that we both wrote together. Next time we could find a better location to film our report as it was very windy.

Walt: Understand inventions that improved living conditions

  • More people are safe from life threatening illnesses.
  • Prevents illnesses that are preventable although there is still a chance of  getting the illness
  • Most effective way for children are healthy and protected from illnesses and diseases
  • They're Painful and make most children throw a tantrum about getting their vaccination.
  • Your body may reject the weak illness/bacteria and not prevent the illness in the future.
  • Vaccines may have mild side effects such as soreness swelling or redness at the injection site .

Vaccination manufacturing companies are the beginning of a toxic trail that can kill flora and fauna

Genetically modified vaccinations that are currently being researched and developed these vaccinations can cause vaccine strain virus   

Vaccinations has threatened wildlife because some ingredients that make up your injection are stolen from animals of the wild .

By Pearl and Chantelle

For inquiry we had to rotate classrooms. Last week Room 1 went to room 21. We were asked to choose a item that had improved our living condition. My buddy and I choose to do Vaccines as it has had a huge impact on the world population. We had to list positives and negatives about our item and later we had to describe the impact it had on the environment.

Fact Book

For writing we had to create a fact book for year 1's and 2's using the information that we were given about 3 insects. I worked with Nuha and Ilsa. Next time we could use more adjectives.

WALT: Entertain year 1 and 2's

Once in a Lifetime

Thrilled, my heart raced as the large emerald coloured flying turtle flew above me while I stared at the unusual but extraordinary sight. The shells of the amazing turtles gleamed in the shining sun. I felt like slapping myself to find out if I was dreaming but couldn’t get myself to do it. My eyes were fixed in a gaze. I could feel the stares of every passing turtle, probably wondering why an old man was in the air alone. There was still hope of finding precious land, if I quickly made a plan.

By Pearl, Maarya, Nuha and Tanishka

WALT use descriptive language when retelling moments in a narrative

The Anonymous Creature

Bored but hopeful to find something, I glanced around the lonely blue sky.  All of a sudden a burst of bright colours surrounded me.  WOOSH huge birds spiraled up to the sky leaving me bewildered.  They were like professional circus performers.  Gentle, soothing, mesmerizing tunes floated through the air, quite opposite to the cacophony of birds.  The divine animals started hovering alongside my steady floating boat.  Dumbfounded I waddled over to the edge of the boat and the creatures spread their soft feathery wings.  Their wings were large, elegant and every line of feathers were a different colour.  It’s eyes were enormous and dark.  Soft noises started to come out of their sharp, slender beaks like they were talking to me.  On one of the animals comfortable looking backs was a hatchling.  It’s eyes were as big and as dark as it’s mothers.  The hatchlings skin was bare, on some parts of it, little feathers the colours green, red, yellow, blue, purple, and orange were growing.  I excitedly flipped through the pages of identifying extraordinary animals but the picture of these colourful creatures weren’t there.  Thrill flooded through my body I was so happy, I was jumping up and down, I couldn’t believe I had discovered a new animal.

I like how you used lots of descriptive language,  next time you could use some more personification and metaphors,
