My birthday party.

On the 12th of December my mum planed a really cool party for me it was Greek & Roman gods party .It had grape vines everywhere and delicious food. We had lamb , door mice which was really just chicken ,grapes,salads and my favorite dolmas ,and such cool games and prizes too. We played who could throw the rock the longest distance and draw the snakes on Medusa. I had the coolest cake ever. It was a nice as chocolate log with cream and strawberry's in it and it was the shape of IX witch is 9 in roman letters . And I am so grateful for my mum and dad because they go to so much hard work making party for us and I love them so much.

Writing:End of year Review

1. My highlight in writing is speeches because it's fun and at the same time your learning how to make your speech interesting.

2.My favourite genres were narratives and procedure's . I like narratives because they're fun and easy to do and I like procedure's because it tells you how to do something or how to go some where.

3.My least favourite writing this year was recounts because I just don't like them that much.

4. P - PLUS - -it is fun and you learn well doing it.
   M  -MINUS - -that sometimes you get bored and don't finish
   I - INTERESTING -learning about narratives

5.I want to learn more about poem's next year.

Writing:End of year review

1. My highlight in writing for this year was narratives because you got to choose what to write about and then you plan it in to 3 parts (orientation, series of events and conclusion)then you write and it's not to hard and not too easy.

2.My favourite genres were narratives and procedures . I liked narratives because they are easy and fun to do and I liked procedure because its all about instructions and I like that stuff.

3.My least favourite writing this year was definitely recounts. I just hated them because the were harder than I thought and when I wrote them it felt like it was took me 5 hours to write every time.

4.     P -Plus -most of the time it wasn't too hard and not too easy(its good to have a little challenge) and it was  fun (kind of)          
       M-Minus - the recounts felt long and hard (kind of)    
       I-Interesting - writing letters because I didn't know that people can write memories in cards (If they are writing a sorry card to someone with a family member dead)

5.I want to learn more about poems because I don't know, I just do.

Everybody played on the play ground and people got sick on a spiny thing at the play ground.

Painting Santa on the beach

video
Today room 13 painted Santa on the beach. We used water colours. I started doing the umbrella's, then Santa and then the background. At first I was scared I would make a mistake but I didn't. I saw everyone's and I thought they all looked great! The hardest thing was Santa. I am leaving it to dry and after we are going to mount it onto a nice bit of paper.They are going to look awesome!
