Abstract Poem

The Power Is Out

Lethargically I played Video Games in my cozy cramped Dungeon, I felt like Drowsy from Pok√©mon, my soft silky blanket kept warmth inside of me as thunder rumbles in the outside open air, “Boom, crash, kapow” says The Thunder.

The(My) Dungeon was filled with unnatural warmth while soothing music almosts sends the whole Dungeon to sleep despite the fact that there is a legendary racket coming from the icy world outside my slightly drowsy living space, I look to see the temperature outside but it became so cold that my thermostat had frozen up.

The Video Game quits, TV went out, Lights, Heater, Landlines, out, everything was out, even my couch warmers, the Dungeon has suddenly turned into a very cold, icy nightmare for me!

WALT: Describing places using our senses

WALT: Describe places using a writing frame that includes senses

that I daze off in every night. I wait at my window watching the colourful sunset. I smell the scent of mums omelettes cooking on the stove in the kitchen, as I make my way there slowly. Hearing the cars and bikes as they zoom, vroom and skid by the house. Under my desk, I realise my transforming paper ninja star was lying there. Suddenly feeling tired I look at my watch realising how late it was, I get into bed ready for sleeping until sun rise in the morning. Is your bedroom as peaceful as mine?

Speech(Writing)

The Amazing Secrets About Aircraft
Rahul
INTRO: Hello my name is Rahul and my PREPOSTEROUS TOTALLY BONKERS speech topic is “The Amazing Secrets About [FAST] me . . . just kidding, [FAST] Aircrafts”.  In this speech I will be telling you a lot about aircrafts such as: facts, advantages, disadvantages, amazing things you won’t believe happened on planes, why aircrafts are important, secrets and amazing things that ONLY a few planes have on board, and by secrets I mean secrets about planes, I think... Aircrafts are really helpful and useful, I mean imagine a world without planes, travelling by boat or helicopter would take days or even months, so listen to this speech and you will be going home with a whole head full of information about aircrafts!


Have you ever wanted to fly on first class? well it will be expensive! If you're choosing Emirates let me just tell you what they have. First class Emirates is for the people that don’t have private jets but still want to fly in luxury because private jet flights would cost approximately 100,000!  A flight from Auckland to London would cost $15,894+! I could buy a brand new car with that amount of money!!! But remember how luxury this first class is, you get your own privacy doors to block others from looking at your space, you also get a big recliner seat that turns into a bed, you get a drawing kit for free on the plane, headphones also come for free and it’s not those super bad cheap ones that you get in economy, in first class you get proper ones that can FIT your EARS and cover them.  You even get your own mini bar and you get an Ipad that controls everything such as: TV, doors, cabinet for mini bar and much more!


Now let’s talk about some insane things that have happened on planes, first I will tell you something crazy! Some random economy passenger did an ebola scare prank and made the plane do an emergency landing and that ended up with the hazmat team(With their hazmat suits) getting on the plane and dragging the guy out until he started shouting saying he was joking and he didn’t have ebola, after this he got into a lot of trouble and the plane continued their flight.  Also this boeing 767 carrying over 200 passengers makes an emergency landing in Warsaw, Poland when their gears broke and weren’t coming out and then the amazing polish pilot made a successful emergency landing without the Gears isn’t that crazy? The plane had to use friction to slow them down the plane was on the ground so the plane slowed down quicker but the landing was not fun!


To Reiterate planes are very useful and you really should be amazed by how crazy they are. Now I’m guessing you know quite a bit more about planes and how USEFUL they are I mean seriously imagine a world without planes!!! Now goodbye it's been me with my speech I’m out.

Argument Writing: OREO : Camp should be 5 days instead of 4

  Image result for oreo biscuit logoImage result for OREO


Oreo
Camp should be 5 days instead of 4:


I agree
For:


  • Because on monday all we will be thinking about camp and can’t focus
  • There is no point leaving out one day
  • We could have the last day as like a chill out day maybe we could repeat some more activities
  • Camp should be 5 days instead of 4 because camp is so fun and everybody wants to go and go for longer
  • Camp could have more activities to add another extra day
  • ou could learn more skills at camp so the longer you go you will get better at things
  • If camp is longer you could try new things
  • The last day would be a fun day and we could just do some games or just be in the room lying down on their bed and taking a rest
  • If camp is longer it gives us time to explore and go around and finding wildlife
  • With camp it gives you time to get away from school and home so you get little time off  


}{ave you ever wondered WHY we never have 5 days instead of 4 days for camp?
It’s CRUEL why are you teachers and staff doing this to us year 6’s? This makes no sense just why can’t we just go to camp on Monday come back on Friday why do we need to miss a whole day?
If this keeps up, on the day before camp all the year 6’s will not be able to concentrate on doing work you will basically get forced into having a fun day because no one I mean no one will be able to concentrate all their minds will be going on about is “OMG I'M SO EXCITED!!! :D CAMPS TOMORROW IT'S GOING TO BE AMAZING!” yup that’s all we will be going on about.
The reason I think that camp should be 5 days instead of 4 is it's better for kids to do more stuff outside a classroom and not sit on a computer all day or write all day it will also give us sometime to be independent with our everyday work.  For example when you go out to camp for a longer time it is a win win situation because we have more fun and when we come home we have maybe learnt how to clean the dishes do your bed so then your parents will be happy that you went to camp for longer, also when you go to camp for longer you could face your fears and do things that you’d always wanted to do.


To reiterate, I believe that we should have 5 days instead of 4 days for camp.
First of, I think that it is a BIG FAT WIN WIN moment if camp is 5 days instead of 4 it could make us independent.  Furthermore, if we have an extra day at camp it could be the rest day so that on that day we can just chillout and make it feel like a regular holiday except all the year 6’s are on holiday with you too.  Additionally, camp even helps you learn life skills such as: making your bed, washing dishes etc. When you come back home on Friday your parents will be even happier that you’ve learnt new and more life skills.  So, now you would have Definitely chosen to agree with me if not I don’t think you had read my writing.  Now all of you better change camp to 5 days instead of 4 and if you are a student watching bring this ABSOLUTELY AMAZING piece of writing to the principle and make sure she gets the idea and changes how long camp is(make sure she made camp longer not shorter!).
