Fairy Tale!

Walt: Use descriptive vocab to paint a picture in our readers minds!
Three Little Pigs! 

Three fat pigs each wore a hat that were called caps. Each pig had materials Brick, Hay and Wood. In the woods lived a light fluffy grey wolf. The three pink brothers had to create a house each of them built their own house.

The next day Each pig built their stunning houses pig number one was wearing his farmer hat and some overalls. Pig number two was wearing a red and black plaid squared shirt and some suspenders. The third pig had a blue hat with blue overalls with a white shirt underneath. The first brother pig was a farmer and the second brother was a Lumberjack and the third brother was builder.

The three little pigs built their magical houses BUT suddenly the big bad wolf came out and knocked on the weakest house made out of straw and second and third pig shut their doors immediately. “You shall open this door or else I will huff and puff and blow this stupid house down” said the ugly grey wolf. So he did what he said he will do the Wolf huffed and puffed and blew the house down.

The poor little pig ran to house two that was made out of sticks and all three pigs had shivers down their back and all three pigs were terrified. “Open this door so I can eat you both, Or else I will huff and puff and blow this house” said the wolf. The two brothers stayed in the house scared and shocked. The wolf said “Well you asked for it then”. He huffed and puffed and blew all the sticks down.

“Erggh” said the wolf. The two little pigs screamed and sprinted rapidly like Usain Bolt to the bricked house pig three opened his door and shut it after both pig’s entered his house. Pig number three had the strongest house. This time the wolf didn’t say anything he just ran to the house and huffed and puffed and blew. But he was too tired and didn’t blow the house down instead he blew himself down because of how tired he was from huffing and puffing the wolf had fainted and said “Oh fine I guess no bacon for breakfast” SMACK as he fell onto the ground.

The pigs celebrated and cheered they were now safe. “Hooray the wolf is down now we can have our breakfast” said the farmer pig. The three little pigs tied up the wolf on to a tree right and left him to starve because he blew two of their cool houses down. The pigs then decided to build another house out of straw around the brick house then build another house out of sticks around the straw so that they were extra safe. They thought that a wild grizzly bear would come next.

Explanation Template Writing.

Walt - Using technical vocabulary in our writing.

Do you always drink water? If you don't I think you should. Drinking fresh water is important because everyone needs to stay hydrated and filled with water if we didn’t have water we would be dry and dehydrated and we could all dye. So in the next paragraphs below I will be explaining how bad it is to have no fresh water to drink.

Polluted water is not only dirty it is also deadly over 1.8m people die every year of diarrheal diseases like cholera. Families are living in places where they can’t provide fresh clean safe water. Water is like food if we don’t eat for a very long time we could die from starvation just like water. But where some people live they don’t get fresh water for reasons like pollutions too dry and the sun just dries all their water up.

People are dying because most people drink the unsafe water because that is all that they get to drink they drink polluted water and many people die from a disease that was in the water and also die for having no water at all most of these people live without food as well. Most of these people who live without fresh water or lives with no water and no food die and there are probably over a million people who are like this.

So make sure that you are drinking that water at home be grateful and thankful that you get fresh safe clean water unlike the people who has no water or who has polluted dirty water don’t drink the fizzy rubbish drink the water that you got at home it is good for you and it is better than some fizzy drinks be grateful of the water that you have it is better than having no water at all.

What are you guys doing drinking that sugary fizzy stuff that is bad for it may taste nice but drink the water instead. Over 1.8m people die from their polluted water. Stop littering stop polluting save these people stop polluting their ocean our ocean our sea creatures drink the safe water that you get from your tap buy the spring water from the supermarket water is much healthier and better than fizzy drinks. You should be happy unlike the other people around the world they don’t get fresh clean water like you do. Be Grateful and Thankful.

Sustaining Ourselves.

Sustaining Ourselves
We are learning to address the factors that can affect our wellbeing

Next to each of these scenarios write down which area of your wellbeing is being affected - social/whanau, spiritual, mental/emotional or physical. You might find that they affect more than one area

  • Going for a run> Physical

  • Playing a sports game with others> Social/Family

  • Going to church, the marae, temple..>Spiritual

  • Listening to your favorite music> Mental/Emotional

  • Eating fresh fruit and vegetables> Physical

  • Learning from a grandparent or caregiver> Social/Family

  • Taking part in a cultural club or activity> Spiritual

  • Getting enough sleep> Physical

Imagine you are part of the following scenarios. Make a decision that will positively impact on your wellbeing and note which aspect of your wellbeing is affected.

  1. You and your older brother have been given some money to buy food for you and your younger siblings for the next few days. You are tempted to buy take away, but you have to buy enough food for breakfast, lunch (for school/pre-school) and dinner for two days. I would just by food for breakfast and lunch I won’t buy take away because we need food for lunch and breakfast or else we might starve.

You are having a really bad day and feel yourself getting angry and upset. You had a small argument with a friend earlier in the day, but you are now really angry at them. The bell will be ringing in ten minutes and you will have to sit next to this friend. What could you do? Make up and say sorry.

  1. You have just changed schools and are missing your old friend and activities. At your old school you played for the school rugby team, but you have not played sport here, except for in P.E. Join rugby at the new school and show off and make friends so the others know that I am good at rugby.

4. If you were Tongan, but your parents were born and grew up in New Zealand. They taught you English since you were born so that you would find New Zealand life easier, but they did not teach you much Tongan. At school you see other students speaking Tongan and participating in Tongan clubs and dancing. Although you feel happy in New Zealand, you wish you could connect to your Tongan roots. I would learn off the website ask my parents to teach me all that they know and learn off youtube and learn dances on youtube I would also ask my friends at school to teach me how to speak tongan.
