Easter To Me

WALT: Write a story about what we do on Easter. 

Easter to me is not chocolate, Easter eggs and the Easter bunny, it is a whole lot more than that. When Jesus died on the cross to forgive our sins, that was the time that we shall keep in our hearts even though we did not see it. I normally have a nice dinner with my family and have devotions to remember what it says in the bible.

In the bible it says that the lord Jesus Christ was placed upon the cross to die. He forgave our sins. Jesus had risen from the dead on the Sunday of Easter. This man named Joseph had beg the soldiers to put Jesus into his family tomb. Even though he was not related to him. In those days if you had no family you had to be put into a pit with other dead bodies. But this very kind man who believed in Jesus, put Jesus into his own family tomb.

In my family we cannot eat our hollow Easter egg until Sunday. This is because the tomb was Empty until Sunday so since the tomb and egg is hollow until it goes into the person stomach then it turns into something different. The ugly weird different. We don't have a lot of Easter eggs, but when we do, we eat it on Sunday.

This year I am not doing the sort of thing that I did last year. Since I am in intermediate I can go to a camp with my sisters, cousin and Aunty. What normally happens, is that my two other cousins, my brother, my younger sister, my mum, my dad and I stay home while everyone else goes to camp. I am very excited to go but not exited to miss the family dinner. Camp only goes from the 25th of March to the 28th of March.

There are a lot of activities from what I’ve heard. Also there is church so that’s even better. Lots of churches coming and that means there are going to be a lot of people there. I’m going with my cousin’s church (well cousin’s old church) and I probably know 97% of people from her Church. I would post on my blog every day at camp but I cannot bring my Chromebook. I will try to post on my blog on Tuesday the 29th of March.

Our task was to write about what we do or what we believe what Easter is to us. I did a picture that represents the cross that Jesus died on. By the way, I still Easter eggs but don't believed the Easter bunny

War At Home

WALT: (a) Predicting: I make, confirm and refine predictions before, during and after. (b) Summarising: I draw conclusions, and make generalisations.

I am sorry I haven't posted this last week but here it is. Our task was complete this presentation and my goal was learn at least three things at the most. I learnt some things about rabbits, like what would kill them, how they are herbivores and loads more. Another thing I have learnt are a few word meanings and poisoning. For example; Strychnine is a poisoning that you shoot to kill. One more example is prompted, which means (of an event or fact) cause or bring about (an action or feeling). My third and final thing that I learnt is more about they WALT. I have learnt so much more about predicting and how we predict before, during and after. 

The Promise

WALT: (a) I make, confirm and refine predictions before, during and after. (b) Summarising - I draw conclusions, and make generalisations.

I am sorry I haven't posted this earlier in the term but here it is. Our task was complete this presentation and learn at least two things. I have learnt a few new meanings of some words I already know. I have also learnt that if you disagree with somebody, don't be mean and turn a argument into a fight. 

Noun Mark

WALT: Learn what the various nouns are.

A common noun is the name of people, places, creatures, objects.
For example: teacher, school, mice and chalk.

A proper noun is the name of a particular person, place, thing, business or organisation.
For example: Kate, Rotorua, Milford Sound, The Warehouse.

A collective noun is the name given to a group of things.
For example: a flock of birds or the Crusaders.

An abstract noun is something you can't see, hear, touch or taste.
These can be qualities, emotions or ideas.
For example: courage, power, creativity, independence.

David and Jeff sat on the beach waiting for their mum. Their mum was working and they were very bored. They had already done everything they could think of. Ten year old David said to his brother, “why don’t we go on a hike with mum and Claire”. Claire was their cousin and they did lots of things together. Jeff walked back to their mum’s work and waited there for her. She finally finished work a few minutes after Jeff had come. All three children called themselves The Cousins.

Back at the beach Claire came to join David. Just as she arrived Jeff and Payton (their mum) arrived to. They all lay on the beach and had a swim. David still had the thought in his head about the hike. When it was time to go home David said while packing up, “mum, can we go for a hike?”. She answered with a “yes, that’s a great idea”. Everybody went home and had a good sleep.

Jeff woke up early because he was so excited. It was something he had not of done in a while. He woke up David so that could pack. They soon finished packing and checked once more. Right after they went to Claire who looked like she was ready to go on a hike. The Cousins were dropped off at a hiking trail. “This is going to be awesome!” said Jeff. They went off into the woods and started their hike journey. It was a few minutes before they stopped to have a snack. They talked while they ate their snack. That was their snack until the next hour. They continued their hike and keep on walking on the trail. It was a hours after they had stopped three times, that David and Claire wanted to go off the trail. Jeff was the oldest and they gave him the puppy eyes. He said okay and they went off, off the trail...

David and Claire spent a couple of minutes celebrating that they got their way. While they were celebrating Jeff heard something. “shhhhhhh…. did you guys hear that?” said Jeff, they didn’t say anything because they went from happy to scared. Jeff walked closer to where the noise was coming from. He grabbed something and ran. David and Claire followed him.

They ran until they got to a flat place. David said, “did we lose it” Jeff said, “I think we did”. It was dark and they needed to rest. Claire had brought a tent and they slept in that for the night. All night was rest time for them. Their rest time finished and the packed up the tent and beds. The Cousins walked forwards and hoped it would lead to the trail. It not till a kilometer walk that they were on the track.

The way the they came was the way they went back. They came to the start of the trail and they saw Payton. All three of them went up to hug her. She was surrounded by love. The Cousins told every detail part about the hike to Payton. All of them slept in their cozy bed for a good night sleep.  

Our task this group for writing this week is about nouns. We had to get the writing from our writing test and mark it highlighting the right words matching the noun. Here's an example that has a Common Noun, Proper Noun, Collective Noun and Abstract Noun in the sentence. Kate was in school waiting for the Crusaders to sign her creative poster that she made. I hope you understood my writing and it wasn't hard to read from all the highlighted bits and pieces.
