For writing this week we have been learning to use repetition and we have wrote some poems.
I didn’t mean to break the window.
The sun was in my eyes.
The bat was surprisingly heavy.
and I swear I’m not telling lies.
I swear I hit that tennis ball straight.
But a squawking seagull got in the way.
Making the ball go in the wrong direction.
And now I’m sorry you have to pay.
But did you see the crazy weather.
The lightning struck the window.
Frightening everyone in the playground.
Causing it to shatter and glow.
Pinch me cause I’m dreaming.
A dragon came to life today.
And burnt the window to a crisp
Boy, it must have been having a bad day.
Harold the giraffe went on a rampage.
Meteors struck the school.
An airplane went off course
striking buildings before landing in the pool.

For writing this week we have been learning to write moments in time here is one of them.
I glance around, what is everyone fussing about I wonder as i hear everyone saying “wow, woah, look at her”. So i decide to look up myself “woah is that someone about to skydive of that really enormous shinning glass building,” that looks as tall as 100 giraffes on top of each other. So that’s what everyone is looking at wow, i wonder if i was skydiving off a more taller and sophisticated building would i get all the attention. As i think to myself everyone is still gazing in amazement at the perfect acrobatic performer.

For writing we have been learning to write narratives.
The magical phone
It started off as just a normal day. Lucy was in her bedroom like always and was texting her best friend Emily. Her parents were always away on business trips but Lucy didn't mind because she hardly came out of her room to see them anyway. It had gotten so bad that her parents had begun serving her dinner in her tiny, pitch black room. At the age of 16, Lucy had grown into a grumpy, antisocial teenager. She had lots of friends but never bothered to visit them outside of her computer.
After having some dinner, Lucy was lounging in her bedroom. Resting her phone on her bedside table she started playing computer games. An hour after gaming Lucy’s phone beeped continuously several times. Lucy paused the game she was playing and reached over to go pick her phone up but her hand went right through the phone. Trying again, but just when she was about to touch it she felt a strong tug pulling her, she got sucked into the phone. It felt like Lucy was grabbed really hard by someone.
Lucy appeared in a strange world that looked like no other,There were flying apps everywhere soaring through the sky, the apps seemed like birds back in the human world. At first Lucy thought her parents were playing a trick on her. Well Lucy was looking a bit lost she felt something on her back. As Lucy slowly turned around to see what was on her back she was amazed to find a pair of wings. They were as soft as a baby bunny’s fur and was plain white and really big. Now Lucy didn’t believe it was her parents.As Lucy was admiring her elegant wings she realized how was she gonna get out and back home. The world she was in was as strange as any other world she had seen before because it had a huge bright yellow emoji. Well Lucy was thinking of a plan to get back home a bunch of apps flew gracefully over her head.
Lucy looked exhausted after trying to find a way out then out of nowhere Lucy so a circular object up ahead it was shining really bright, so Lucy suspected that it could be a way out so Lucy used her beautiful wings to fly over there. Once Lucy had flown over there she could see her lonely, peaceful room and she knew she had a chance to go back home. So she flew right through the circular object and back home. A bright light appeared in Lucy's room and believe it or not it was Lucy, Lucy was so relieved to be back home.
Lucy saw her phone on her bedside table and just left it alone because she didn't want to be teleported to that strange mysterious world again. Lucy’s mum came in and started talking to Lucy “that's why you shouldn't be on your phone for to long.’’

On my way to work
As I stand on the pavement waiting for the crossing light to change…
“Come on, come on…” I mutter while I wait for the lights to change…
“Morning Bob,” came the deep rumbling voice from beside me..
As I stand on the pavement waiting for the crossing light to change I hear birds singing and big loud stomps. Suddenly a massive shadow appears over me, I turn around and there’s a humongous yeti wearing a pitch black professional looking coat with a blood red tie and a giant nasa briefcase. I was wondering if the yeti was a boy or a girl because the yeti was wearing hot pink nail polish but was wearing a suit that kind of made the yeti look like a boy. The yeti was definitely really tall he looked like he was 5 stories tall and it looked like he could reach all the way up to the clouds.
Good job Nikita! You used the correct senses which made it clear to read. Next time you should add a little bit more of descriptive language. By Sameera

In reading we can pick an article to tell our audience about we are trying to get the main ideas out of a text and put it in our google drawing or slide.
the immune system defense cells are white blood cells which are also known as leukocytes. Leukocytes can be found throughout the body including lymph nodes, thymus, spleen and bone marrow.
Immune means to prevent getting sick.
Sometimes immunization shots help when your body can’t fight against illnesses.
Your immune system helps you fight illnesses tiny organisms and germs that attack you every second of everyday.
What does it mean to be immune?
Once you get a particular type of disease such as chickenpox you usually don’t get it again because your body becomes immune this is because your immune system is already familiar with it and knows how to fight it.
Substances called antigens will come and invade the body. The presences inside the body triggers the immune system to start a process called the immune response which will attack the antigens in order to prevent infections and diseases and keep the body healthy.
Your immune system is made up of a wide variety of special cells, proteins and organs.
