El Rancho writing

W.A.L.T:  write a persuasion argument 

This is my El Rancho writing. Rosie gave the class a task were we could agree that El Rancho is a safe place to go to or not. I agree that it's safe. I choose to persuade the readers to go to El Rancho. 

I think that I did well but I could do better.  
Feedback/feedforward:  I think you did an awesome job writing your conclusion but maybe you should have a sentence Starter.


Statement: is El rancho a safe and friendly place?

I would like to tell you about El Rancho. You get a nice and friendly welcome from the instructors when you arrive. It's a nice camp you can enjoy with your families. Some people say it's a safe place, but some don't. I think it's a safe and friendly place. 

El Rancho has got some dangerous activities but there are instructions that will be there to help you. They tell you what to do, and if you did not hear they will tell you what to do. In archery, rifles and kayaking the instructors will be there to help you. If someone is blocking your way, tell the instructors and they will tell them to move so you can see.

In horse riding you have helmets on and in kayaking you have life jackets on. So, in kayaking if you fall off out into the water you will not drown. If the kayak tips on you just swim by the kayak then flip it over and get back in. If you can't swim you lift up the kayak and go to the side, and lift up the kayak to get back in. 

El Rancho has safe cabins to sleep in, and good places to eat. The cooks make your meals, and wash your dirty dishes so you don't have to worry. They clean up your tables for the next people. When you come along it will be nice and clean for you. The cabins are safe because you can lock the door so no one can get in.

Some people think El Rancho is a safe place and some others don't. There are many activities that the staff will teach you. Clearly it's a safe place for you and your families. From this statement do you think it's a safe place to stay?

Geometry passport

This is geometry the class has been doing it for 3 weeks 
W.A.L.T: position and orientation 

This is what Rosie gave my maths group here it is 
Task 3 
What we got 7 bean bags, 6 cookie pads, 1 table, 2 soft chairs, 1 paepae chair, 2 chair and 2 computers with desks  
We had to draw a scale map of the classroom and work out a schedule for the most valuable teaching and seating positions. Justify your coatings. Work out the total value for the number of students and adults in this class. Every 1m = 4cm Our scale map is not quite accurate because we started from the one so next time we now know the start from the cm 

I think I did well with I long description but I need to work on my spelling 
I think that you did great because I can see that you put in a lot of effort into it. Awesome. Jhaz

The Story Of Okātia

This is our writing we had to retell then story of Okātia in our groups 

Retold by Quentin Durston and Tui Joseph.

Many, many centuries ago, when technology wasn't even thought of, there was  an enormous, muscular, mighty totara tree. It was tougher than any other tree that ever lived! In it lived a spirit! His name was Okātia. One day the birds told him something about Moana. He also heard that Moana was bigger than him! He was furious and full of anger! He tugged his roots out of the ground, and he started stomping like a giant dinosaur crushing the trees with his giant roots!

Retold by  Grace Berkeley And Quiana Rastrick 

Okātia was tumbling and turning through the forest with rage. The ground shook with power. Okātia demolished the trees as his roots went past. Tāne was enraged, his children were being crushed! Okātia felt even more angry. he didn't want anyone or anything bigger than him! He said that he was the best out of everything! The sea called Okātia and he got more and more determined to get there! The ground shook with lots of power! He started carving the gorge by crushing and destroying the great wall of rock!

Retold by Memphis Winterburn and Zyd E.

When Okātia got through the gorge he found Foxton beach. He was sinking very very fast like he was in quicksand. He didn't like it! Soon he ran into the water and he was drowning in the water as fast as a ferrari on a race track. He was coming a part of the sea. He tasted salt water and it was the most disgusting water he had ever tasted. Okātia was being dragged out into the sea! In a minute or two Okātia was gone far out in the sea and was never seen again.

Here are the photos 

I did well but I need a longer description 
Feedback: this is awesome!
Feedforward: I like how you and your whanau group used specific but decriptive and juicy words!
