Best Vis Lang

I think I did well at relating everything to the words and putting my personality into it.
I learnt that using bright colours is best.
Next time I won't have as much white paper left.

Quiddage Writing

"Quiddage! Yippee!", everyone would shout at 11:00am every Friday.

The atmosphere is just fantastic! Everyone is so excited but not too over the top about it, there's a great "lift" in everyone's personality and we're all here for the same reason; to have FUN!!
And that's exactly it; FUN!!

Our shop; L@ Soupers, is always SOOOOOOO busy, we have customers everywhere! And it's even harder when us four girls (Luce, Zia, Grace and I) are all Bank Tellers as well.
But I don't mind it's all doing us lots of good and teaching us how to spend and save our money in the BIG, WIDE WORLD, and like I said before it gives us all HUGE thrills nearly as big as ones you get at Disney Land.

Anyway that's just one of heaps of awesome things about QZealand!!!

Y6 Reflection

Riverdale has been AMAZING for me. From the day I walked through the doors of my own bright, new classroom I knew I was going to be very happy here. Although it was a little scary at first, by the third day I had settled in perfectly. Every teacher has given me joy every day and I’ve had fantastic opportunities. I still remember my first field trip to a farm with Mrs Walker! I got to do Quiddage with the big kids when I was six. At camp we had awesome waterslides, orienteering, and even horse riding. I got to compete in the speech final twice and came 2nd both times. In Te Puawai I’ve had the chance to sing lead parts and the atmosphere there is really fun. I’ve been in many different Explorers groups. In Cross Country I remember when I ran through a mud puddle and got completely soaked. Every year I achieved my goal in getting better. The production this year was the best because I got to perform in seven different items. I have had fun with every single person in this school and I just want to thank all the teachers and adults for helping me grow and for challenging me to push myself further and further. Without you I would not be the person I am today. Thanks once again for an incredible journey through the first years of my school life. It has been a privilege to have been taught at Riverdale School. I know for sure that I will be back in the very near future (because I know I won't be able to keep away!)...........so WATCH OUT!

I think I did great on my Iceberg PI.
The audience enjoyed it and I really enjoyed learning about Icebergs!!!

Athletics Writing

As I jog up to the starting line of our first activity, Sprints, I'm feeling nervous but excited because I have no idea where I'm going to come.

All of a sudden I hear a loud "Clap", woops I'm supposed to be running.
"Come on, come on!" I'm thinking as I start to motor and catch up with the others.
"Man, I never knew I could sprint so fast. Oh, there's the finish line. Yes!! I came 2nd, that means I'm into the semi-finals."

Now we're on to my favourite; Long Jump. It was over so quickly, literally all I did was run and jump.
Now that was a definate 3 for me, so off I potter and plonk down behind the 3.

Next is Shotput, unfortunately my least favourite.
"Oh no, these are the heaviest things ever!" I thought as I was trying to hold it in one hand.
Finally my arm went dead so I eventually managed to throw it.
"Two!" shouted Mrs Wiggins.
So, you know what happened next.

After Long Distance and Discus it was my next favourite; Hurdles.
Yet again the clappers went and this time I was actually awake.
"Huh, Slap, Huh, Slap!" was all I heard from my fellow competitors as I was leaping. When I crossed the line Mr McNaught yelled "Maddy and Ana."
Which meant I was into the semi-finals.
"Yippee!"

Now...For the most AWESOME one of all................................................HIGH JUMP!!!
I rushed over to the right hand side ready to go.
"First", TC announced "We'll start with 75cm."
"Oh, I was hoping it would be a little bit higher than that", I thought.
And as I said before I hardly even had to run to get over it.
The next level was 90cm.
"Yay! I made it over."
Next is my favourite level 1m.
"Ok, I've got to make this one. Here I go."
I run, I jump and I................................................................Make it!!
"Wohoo", I yell.

Athletics day was really cool. I reckon it was the best athletics day I've ever had at Riverdale!!:)

Mult / Div Stratergy

video

W.A.L.T: use multiplication and division to solve a problem.
I think that I did really well on solving the problem because I did it right the first time and I learnt different ways to work these type of problems out.
Also I think that this is a good way to learn because you have to explain how you worked it out and also understand what you did to solve the problem.

My descriptive writing

Anjia is a very cute monster.
She is really small. Actually she only reaches exactly 14cm tall and 13cm wide.
Anjia looks like a ball with soft straight spiky
hair sticking up over her whole body. Except, of course, from her tiny little face with two big, bright, beautiful, longish eyes as green as grass and a small mouth that always has a lovely smile on. And her two 3cm big feet that she uses to bounce around everywhere she goes that are on the bottom of her body with three toes. She is bright blue with four white zig-zag stripes going on a diagonal across her body. The foods that she likes to eat are fresh, juicy strawberries and oranges and she likes to drink thick, creamy banana smoothies. She lives in a wonky straw roof house with wooden walls. She has a huge garden with lots of colourful, blooming flowers, trees and fruit and vegetable plants.
She doesn't go to school because when her type of monster is born, which are called Shnookypuffs, they already know most things and also every one or two days for five minutes their parents teach them one new thing.
Anjia likes to go for walks in the forest and cooking delicious meals. Also she lives with her Mum and Dad because she loves them so much.


I did well at following all the success criteria

I learned that describing is a big part of every piece of writing

Next time I will do better at having a few more similes
