His Own War - Character Description

WALT: find evidence and clues from the text to create a description

This week we had to create 2 Padlets. The first padlet explained what perseverance meant, and how Archibald Baxter showed this while he was in World War 1. The second Padlet explained how Archibald Baxter was resourceful and how this helped him to survive World War 1.

This week we have learnt to make two padlets. On the padlet I have learnt to change backgrounds and write lots of information describing a character’s personality. On the padlet we had to write how resourceful was Archibald Baxter. We have learnt to add exact details and evidence into the padlet from the story that we were reading. We have learnt how to find some evidence and clues about our story.

Problem solving

Walt: solve multiplication problems using a range of strategies.

We are learning how to solve problems using shorter solving solutions. We learnt how to solve problems with a partner because it is easier.

Reviewing a game

This game is about positive and negative just like a battery. On the battery it has a plus on the top and a take away, the plus means positive and the takeaway means negative. I love this game because it is tricky, because you need to join the plus wire to takeaway wire and it can be really tricky because sometimes the symbols are moving.

You can challenge your friends by timing how fast you can do it and it can be really tricky because if  you cross the one of the lines you will be out and it is a mind game and it is good for your mind. I recommend this game because it can keep you busy for hours and hours and you can do this during your math.

Name of Game: ? Electric joint.
Link to Game: ? The link to the game is on top.
How do you score/ win: ? you need to make power go round and round.
Difficulty: ?/10 It is very tricky 10/10.
Fun: ?/10  It is fun 8/10.

If you do not like this game you can go on cool maths games and have some fun, but this game is pretty cool. So play with your friends and have fun. But watch out if you cross the line you are out.

My free blog writing

P1. On sunday March the 13 in 2015 we went to my aunt's house and she lives far far away we went there because she wanted to move some stuff out like her old piano and her big kid’s toy’s. She has a feijoa tree at the back of the house and then I said to sister “ I know what i’m going to do go and grab some feijoas at the back” so we went at the back with our plastic bags and boom there was a lot of BIG feijoas so me and my sister was so so happy. My sister said “ I want to live here and I am going to live here” so I said “ well you can live here while I am in samoa with mum and dad” and she said “ no way man I want to go to samoa” so I said  “ we are both going to samoa with mum and dad” now we went back inside the house with our BIG feijoas My mum said “ wow look how many feijoas you guys got it is like you go the whole tree” and my aunty was laughing.

P2. Then I saw the old piano it was a little bit olden day, but I still said “ I still want it” because If I go there another day it might be gone and I will be sad so we took it in the car and I did the work and I was sweating so I went in the house and I grabbed a fresh cold water then I said “ ahh ahh” then we still needed to put in the toys inside the car that we are going to get from her garage and believe it or not she had lots of toys then I said “ this is going to take forever”.

P3. So I was doing the most work and I had to lift heavy boxes of toys and of course I had a little play around with the toys and I was pretty all right with the amount of toy that we are getting but the mess is going to be big and I will be tired of picking up the toys.

ANZAC Assembly Recount

Image result for WW1
P1. On Friday at assembly we had to go outside to the Anzac crosses,”but I  don’t mean that we are going to a cemetery we are just going to the crosses so that we can remember the people who died for us and who fought for us NZ. The Anzac people are really important to NZ and us, back in world war two Mr somerville said his granddad was in the war and same as Miss flavills granddad was in the world two.

In WW1 and WW2 they had dog’s in the battle they used the dogs for sending messages and the dogs were really good for killing rats. What I mean is that when they dig a trench the dogs kill the rats because it will be enoing if you are shooting but there's rats all around crawling on you and they are seeking. In WW1, they survived by eating little pieces of tiny bread for dinner and for breakfast. When one person is down you need four people to carry the bearer and it will be dangerous because if you are going to the other side with the bearer you might die and get explode by the shrapnel and Mr somerville said his granddad got the shrapnel stuck in his leg.

P3. I learned that the people in WW1 and WW2 are very special and important to us because they saved us and they saved NZ, but it is sad for the people who did not make it home after the war, but they are still the best soldiers for NZ. And remember we will remember them and we are lucky to saved by the NZ soldiers.

Holiday highlight.

P1. On Wednesday the last school week for term one I was not at school because I was on the Air NZ plane with my family to start the holiday in Samoa. When it was time for landing The pilot said “please passengers can you put on your seatbelt and can you fasten it tight, our worker’s will come to check if your chairs are up and your seat belt are tight”. Then it was time  the plane got lower and lower then it landed in Samoa.

P2. So then it was morning and it was beautiful and hot so I went and have a cold shower and it was nice. Now my mum said to us to go put on some clothes to go to Apia and have a good time and to go to the biggest church in Samoa. Now it was time to get inside the ute and then I said “shotgun jumping at the back” in Samoa you can sit at the back of the car and you can not wear seat belts. So then the ute started driving, then we got at Apia and it was hot I was ready sweating and we stopped to get some drinks, and I said “ ahh that’s better “. Now it was time to go to the biggest church in samoa when I got in my mum said to go and do a prey and my prey was” God please look after my other two brothers that’s still in NZ and when we go back please land us safety to NZ amen”.Then we went back home to sleep.

P3. And then it was morning Now it was my grandma's unveiling so we had to go and shower and get dressed into samoan clothes. Then the priest arrived, at samoa you can barry somebody special right in front of you samoan house so we buried our grandma in front of our samoan house and did her grave and tomb stone. Then everybody arrived and it started, I asked my mum what is a unveiling and she said that the priest will bless the grave and the tomb stone. So then the priest blessed the grave and tomb stone and now it was time to eat so it was the priest who first got  his food and then the kid’s and people, “the food looked so so delicious”. We had corn beef, taro, chopsie, chicken, and fish. “I first eat my taro and my corn beef”.

P4. Now I was tired so I went to sleep and it was morning and I said “yes yes yes” so I went and washed my face for the beach and my mum and aunties were up early and they were getting the food ready for the beach. they made chamen, taro, sweet and sour, and my dad and uncles were doing the pig because it was a sunday but first we went church and then came back and got into the car’s. I was going in the van with aircon it was nice and cold when we got there it was hot when we jumped out and we eat first  and I got sweet and sour and taro and pig. Now it was time to go swimming and I was the first person to go in the water and it was cold and the water was so so clear I could see the rook’s and sand it was beautiful. And my cuson thoute that she can swim but she drowned so I pulled her back to shore like A superhero I was the man and she said “thank you Hendrix” and I said “ no you don’t need to thank me and it is alright” and she was laughing and then I said “yar you are laughing like you didn't even got drowned” and we went back home.
