Congratulations to everyone who participated in our fantastic Athletics Day at Goldsworthy Track on Wednesday.
Here are some highlights from the day written using our best grammar and punctuation.
1. I was very nervous as I waited patiently at the starting line for Mrs Wallis to fire the starting gun to begin the 100 metre sprint down the straight stretch of the track.
2. It was easy at the start of the 200 metre run but as I kept going my lungs seemed as if they would burst and my legs started to feel like jelly.
3. Mr Muir ran like the wind when he blitzed the field as the final runner in the staff team relay event.
4. The heavy shot putt needed a hefty push to make it go past the orange marker.

Jackson's Voki

Our lesson today was to write a description of Jackson’s Voki that has been on our blog for one week.

Can you draw a picture of what you think his voki looked like from this description?

We combined our ideas and pooled our adjectives, metaphors and punctuation suggestions.

Here it is:

Jackson’s voki had a weird voice. It said, “This is Jackson speaking. I am a wizard.”

Jackson’s voki had a pointy wizard hat with five big, white stars.

He had a flat, green nose that was like a pig’s snout.

His yellow, long, messy hair fell all over his face,  like a shaggy dog.

His beard and moustache matched his messy hair. You can’t see his eyes because of the  silver,  reflective sunglasses with black,  square frames.

The weirdest thing of all was the mouth because it was shaped like an oblong and he had eight vampire teeth.

In the background the bright fires burnt like Black Saturday fires.

What a weirdo!
