fixing writi

Here is our edited story.
Things we learnt about were
  • We aren’t allowed to use then, and, also
  • and because at the beginning of a sentence.
  • Speech marks go on the OUTSIDE
  • of the full stop or other punctuation.
  • The end of a sentence can be marked
  • by a full stop, an exclamation mark or a
  • question mark. You don’t need to put an extra full
  • stop after a question mark.
  • Remember to check ALL capital letters.
  • Sometimes we need to put them in and
  • sometimes we need to take them out.
On Monday 24th September 2018 Room 7
did a blindfold challenge. We wanted to have
fun and make our morning a bit interesting by playing a game.


Firstly Miss Ashley told us the rules which
was no touching the tables or pieces of paper
on the floor or you will lose points.“  However you are
allowed to touch the chairs because you sometimes have
to step over them to get to the end. Next we got into buddies.
My buddy was Lucina.  We had to line up by the heater in our
buddies.


First it was my turn to go so Lucina (my buddy)  put the
blindfold on me (over my eyes) and helped me to stand up.
The blindfold was tight it felt like a constrictor boa on my face. I
felt so confused and disorientated because the blindfold
was covering my eyes. Lucina told me to go left, right,
straight and step over.” I was feeling nervous and a little bit
scared because what if she was tricking me?“ and I
was really doing something silly. I got to the end safely
and took my blindfold off.
Next it was my buddies turn so I helped her put the blindfold
on. I told her to walk straight first, then next turn left. She
doesn’t know her lefts and rights so she went the wrong way.I
said no your other left and it was a little bit funny.
In the end we got to the blue fruit tray and we made it without
losing any points!


I think I would like to do this activity again because it was cool
to do something different and fun in class especially since its
the end of the term and I think we are all feeling kind of tired.

Rainbows end



I got out of the car. Wow. I can already see the fear fall. The sound of the roller coasters moving was awesome. I knew I was going to have a great day with my family.

We walked around I could hear people screaming. The first ride we went on was the mind ride It was fun and scary. I was going to go on the log ride but it was not on so I went on the rollercoaster. It went higher and higher and then shot down where the loop was and to the corkscrew. I felt Dizzy and i had butterflies in my stomach.


 There was a ride called the invader right next to the rollercoaster. so I decided to go on it. Round and round and up and down it went crazy. When I got off I really wanted to go on another ride so we went on the motion master which is a 3d dinosaur movie. Then Thomas and Dad went on the fear fall which is 18 stories high. up up up click “Ahhhhhhhh” is All you could hear. we had lunch sandwiches and chips. We went on the power surge. It went round and round and upside down. The last ride we went on was the rollercoaster. Then we had to leave. The End.

How do i feel about my work

How does a tornado start

Did you know that a tornado starts when hot air on the
ground mixes with cold air in the sky underneath a
cumulonimbus cloud. Tornadoes rotate and go anywhere
in any direction.


Tornadoes last for only seconds or minutes.
They travel for short distances but they travel very fast.
Tornadoes form over land and a tornado that has water in it is called
a waterspout. Tornadoes are dangerous because they can
suck up people, rubbish (debri).


Tornado alley is part of the United States where
tornadoes happen. They happen in this place
because The cold air from mexico
and then the warm air the equator how
the tornado starts when they come to meet
in the middle and it has so much wind to start a tornado.
Inside a tornado is water vapour from the cumulonimbus cloud.
Inside the cumulonimbus cloud, if it is
very cloud it can turn  into Hail and snow.
And it Stables to the floor or it moved to here and they.
