WALT: Write a short paragraph about my BEST part of the holiday.

My best day was when Vivian, Min, Eric, Mum and I went to the Noel Leeming SELL OUT!!! My favourite part was playing on the Play-station 5. The game that I was playing was HALO 5.

WALT: Re-Craft our writing
WILF: Hook, show don’t tell

OMG! Look at all of those people at the Noel Leeming Sell out. “We have to get in there quick if we want to buy something”
Said Mum so we hightailed threw the door. We looked around then I saw there was a free try on the Play-station 5 so I ran there as quick as I can grabbed the controller and start playing.

Image result for banana


WALT: Facts about bananas and writing a report.

Bananas are a kind of berry.

Wild bananas have large, hard seeds.

Fibre taken from banana plants can be used to make clothes. 

India is the leading producer of bananas.

Bananas contain a lot of potassium, making them more radioactive than other fruits. You don't need to worry though as this naturally occurring radiation has very little effect on the body. Other foods rich in potassium include potatoes, beans, seeds and nuts.

Banana plants are not trees, they are a type of herb.

Walt : Retell a past event
WILF : Correct sequence of an event

“No school work today, we're cooking’’ Miss Wihongi gasped with joy. Fantastic I thought to myself, I finally get to taste apple crumble.
“Andrew’’ Miss Wihongi called my name . I dashed to the back of the room and slipped on the blue sticky latex gloves. I snatched a blunt orange potato peeler from the stack I held my luscious apple in my other hand. I began to peel. I slide my load of apples into the gigantic pot. It’s ready to cook. Off to the staffroom we galloped.
I mixed sugar and butter together. Then flour. It looked like dirty bread crumbs. I evenly sprinkled this on top of the stewed apple. I shoved it into the hot blazing oven. It smelt like my mum’s apple pie. I gazed into the hot sizzling oven.
The bubbles reminded me of hot shocking lava. “It’s ready whanau. Haere mai ki te kai”. Miss Wihongi yelled. Sprinted to snatch a green bowl and waited for everyone else. I hungrily scooped a big mouthful. Yum! I thought. What a wonderful day.
