Merit Can do #3

Today we started Canta maths. Everyone who wants to do it came with Mr Ladbrook and we started a Google form and it had questions from a few years ago. I showed resilience because when the questions were had I worked through them.

Merit can do #2 Pals

I have been doing my PAL's Duty every week and on Friday I did Pals. Scott, Joseph T and I made a game of force back, we were going to do touch but people wanted to play force back. I showed active thinking by changing the game when people wanted to play something other than touch or football.

My short story

For this piece of writing I have focussing on my vocabulary and punctuation. I have been learning to: -
  • use a range of precise vocabulary to communicate meaning (Year ⅞)
  • use all basic punctuation independently and attempt more complex punctuation (eg semicolons, colons, parentheses) (Year 7/8
The pieces of my writing that are highlighted green are where I have shown my vocabulary and punctuation goal

The bush ride

As the engine roared into life Shaun started riding round. Then he saw his mate Dan going over the hill out of control. Shaun had a Honda CRF 450 and Dan had a KTM SX 450. They arrived at  the start of the Mackley river track near denniston they turned on to the track the track and started riding along.

They pulled up at the first turn off the main track was one way and the track to Stockton so they turned right and that was the track. They found to the highest part and there was a turn off. They turned left thinking it was the track but it wasn't. They kept going and then there was another turn-off and they went right and the track was tight and the got lost... They stopped and decided to build a fire.

Shaun said We are very close to water so they checked around and they discovered a little creek so they built a fire and also they made a hut from bushes and sticks. The next morning the boys got on their bikes and rode around looking for a track after a while they found a river and they rode along the bank looking for anything. They found an old hut that had heaps of stuff in it.
They spotted some guns and they went hunting the saw a huge boar charging at them So Shaun got the gun and shot  It was that big that both of them had to carry it. They build a fire and they gutted the boar and then they cooked it.

In the morning they built a help sign and they created as much smoke as they could with the fire. Later that day a helicopter was flying around and it spotted the smoke and it landed and picked Shaun and Dan up. They got home and they were very relieved that they were home.

Merit must do #1

I did the Kauri Cross Country. I came 4th. I showed resilience by when I rolled my ankle half way through the second lap but I kept going.

Merit can do #1 Pals

I have been doing my PAL's Duty every week and on Friday I did Pals and my group played soccer with some Kakano students. They all loved it! I showed resilience by helping the Kids when they weren't doing the right thing. And I also showed active thinking by coming up with new Ideas to make it more fun.

I can describe the structure of a Short Story

Something I have learned about the structure of short stories is the problem starts fast.

After reading some short stories two things I will remember when I write my own short story are keep it short and make it interesting.
