Story Starters

This is my story starters. I had to go on this story starters, and use the story starter to write a nice story. My story starter is describe a day in the life of a nerdy gorilla who gets lost in the Amazon.

 It’s 6:00, Nerdy Gorilla has to read his handmade books about biology and maths including science. He reads until it’s 7:30, that’s finally when he gets dressed into his hand made leopard suit. He makes his eggs with his handmade pan under his hand made oven/stove. The Nerdy Gorilla give his cute, chubby babies half of his eggs. At 8:00 his sleepy wife wakes up, and now they can finally start their day as a cute gorilla couple. At this point it would 12:00 and finally the wife is awake which means they finally get out. It’s 12:10 and they are looking for some coconuts so that they can finally eat some scrumptious lunch. It’s 12:50 and that’s when his cute, furry babies have their maths lesson, 1:30 is when they get taught about biology and their last lesson at 1:50 is about history. 2:00 is when he has a quick nap. 3:00 is when they have a quick snack. At 3:30, Nerdy Gorilla has to make dinner which takes forever, because he is an amazon rain forest. It’s 6:00 and he eats dinner, 7:00 is when he finally has some desert. And it is 7:00 when he goes to sleep as well as his cute, chubby furry friends.

Birds Prey - Reading - Zahra & Nazella

WALT discuss difficult parts in a text.

This is our reading tasks. We had to read Birds Prey. Then we had to find words that were very difficult and find the meaning including the evidence. We had to work as a group to find meanings and evidence with the difficulty. We found out why it was important to share your difficulties, it's important so that you learn something new, to understand, to learn the pronunciation and to learn and learn. 

Story Cubes

Story cubes is a writing activity that I had to do.Story cube is a weird story made up from dices. You have to have story cube dices and roll the dices. Then you start a story. I typed down a story from my group.
Here's our group's story:
Once a upon a time, there was a bee. The bee saw fire from a mad dragon. He saw his whole family. So he decided to try and save his family. Apparently he died, then an alien appeared, the alien watching the bee and the bee’s family burning with a big happy smile. Then there was an airplane, all the people were very very sad.Some people were happy some people were sad. Then an alien squashed the dead bee. Then the alien rolled the dice then out came three people with three different keys. The bee had to choose choose a key, all the keys led to a different dimension. The bee chose number 3 and he went to a place called “Banana Castle”, there were no humans just…. minions. The only thing he had to learn about that dimension was how to say banana. Banana, banana and banana.

A sportastic holiday - recount

In the holidays I played sports to keep fit. I played soccer with my big brother. Then I ran around the block. After a while I had to wear new clothes because my mum said that we were going somewhere.

After a long fun ride, we reached our destination. It was the Masjid. Someone has invited us to their party. I met Zahra and all my other friends, I also played some soccer their to. After a while we had to eat, we ate yummy lamb kebab, we did not remember to eat some greens. We all sat down at one place so that we could all leave at the same time. We were all filled up and decided to go upstairs to talk. We talked about school and stuff out of the box. We were all unhappy that school was going to start. We didn’t want to stop the fun. and we didn’t want the holidays to stop.

We all left and I got ready for school, I was so unhappy. So I didn’t pack up. I just played some online games which made me not think about school. Then I fell fast asleep.
