How Volcano Works?

In Room 2 we are interested how volcano works?
When the volcano erupts the hot lava pours down the sides of the mountains like a stream. the glowing hot ash shoots high up into the air. the atmosphere gets warmer and warmer and the ice melts.  The ice flows into the sea. The sea rises and the flat islands disappear under the sea.

Why Littering At the Beach is Bad?

Learning Goal: We are learning to write a persuasive text.
Success criteria: I know I can do this when I can express my point of view and support it with evidence. 

I believe that littering at the beach is nasty. When people leave their old fishing nets in the sea the turtles get tangled in it and they die. The plastic bags are horrible because it get stuck over the heads of the turtles and other sea creatures . They suffocate and die. 
I believe that people should pick up their rubbish and take it home. We need a clean and safe beach for everyone to enjoy.

Learning goalWe are learning to write a descriptive text.
Success criteria: We can do this when we can use describing  words.

Today is a very hot day. The fiery sun burns my skin and makes me sweaty. When I roll on the green green grass it feels like a soft carpet. It is very hot so I drink lots of water. I play under the shade and I can hear the leaves rustling. I can see the birds gliding across the sky. 

Mu family Trip To The Beach

Learning goalWe are learning to write a descriptive text.
Success criteria: We can do this when we can use describing  words.
In the weekend my family and I went to the beach. 
When we got there we ran on the sand and it was hot. I went for a swim. I felt cold and goose bumps. The waves splashed on the sand. The sea shells sparkled in the sun. I heard the seagulls squawked in the sky. I ate sausages and it tasted like pork. I had ice-cream and it looked like a mountain because it had three scoops on the cone.
I had a fun day at the beach.

My Holiday

During the holidays my family and I went to my auntie's house at Mangere for a family gathering barbecue. 

Lupe's mum made the barbecue. She cooked sausages, pam and steak. The pam was delicious when I ate it with catch up and lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber. I had 'otai which is a special Tongan drink made from watermelon, pineapple and scraped coconut. Lupe and Saane did a dance and my aunty put money on them.

We all had a great time.

Why Is Cutting Down Trees Bad?

Learning Intention: I am learning to write a persuasive text using information to persuade readers my point of view is right.

I believe people should not cut down trees because we will have no oxygen to breathe. There will be no home for the animals. I believe cutting down trees should not be allowed.
