WALT: Make a prediction on what a story could be about based on the key words -By Nicole and Piranavie

Pt:3 No:3 1997

Mudpluggers-By: Maggie Lillieby

 For our school’s challenge there  was a bike race for the mountain bikers. They got timed by a stopwatch.  My best friends,Glenn and Simon Foster were bikers like me and we're competing . It was the school’s first race ever . There were lots of obstacles like puddles, mud and potholes. All the bikers had their head down. On the last part of the race we had to go downhill to finish the race. At the race track Glenn fell into one of the potholes, so he had to walk down the hill. I saw that Simon Foster was walking too. They finally got to the end and tied in third place. Glenn’s Dad was very proud of both for them for winning third place.

My refection:

I think we did well getting a good prediction.I think our next step is to add more detail.

WALT: Write persuasively - By Prisha and Nicole and Eliza

WALT: Write persuasively


Claim: Kids Are Better Than Adults


Being a kid is waaay better than being an adults,after you read this you will be on our side. We are going show you why right now!  Firstly kids are more creative than adults and we have a better imagination than adults, Secondly kids  have more energy and are more active than adults, Last of all kids don't have that much responsibility as much as adults have.


Prisha-
Firstly kids way are more creative and have better imagination than  boring ADULTS. For example kids have imaginary friends,  if you had an imaginary friend put your hand up ,I never did have one,but if i did have an imaginary friend it would be Turquoise and the shape of a cute penguin and also  makes the sound of a giant cow. Mooooow!!! Imaginary friends get you through everything,this is why you should have one.


-Eliza
Kids are waaay  more active than parents . For example playing,Running around,Doing gymnastics and parents just go to work sleep and go on their phones   isn't that quite BORING. You should totally tell them GO OUT AND EXERCISE !!! But they never ever listen. That is a terrible life to live with.Being a kid is soooo much better than being an adult. I think that parents would be over the moon if they were kids know.


-Nicole
It’s your lucky day now I am going to explain why kids have wayyyy less responsibility than adults! Firstly kids don’t have to  pay expensive bills e.g. rent , mortgage, electricity,water, education for your kids and  insurance for your car and other expensive like groceries,after school care for your kids ,technology and activities for your kids. Adults have to go to work and cook and clean  and make sure their kids do well in school well kids can just stay home and eat chips.


Conclusion-
So now you know that kids are better than BORING old adults!!!
Now adults wish that they never grew up.That's why kids RULE.Now you tell your parents that they are boring.NOW you have to pay adults!!

My refection:
I think we with our team work .I think we need to work on making it make more sense.

Teacher Reflection: Well done girls!  You choose an interesting topic to write about.  Excellent reasons and detail given.  I like how you used interesting and persuasive adjectives.  Eg: boring vs imaginative and active.  
Next steps: Make sure your sentences make sense.  Try to read your writing out aloud so that you can notice the errors.  Also, think carefully about your use of capital letters and fullstops.
