Girl, School, Money
A girl comes home from School and she gets a letter about a class trip to Rotorua. She has to collect money because it costs $40 to go on the bus. Abby needs a dressing gown to go on the trip and she gets one from Ata. But the dressing gown has no buttons. So they search for buttons that are no longer used. Then the class went on the trip and she stayed with Hine's family. And when the trip was over, Aunty Noa realised that the dressing gown was gone. They sent a letter to Hine's family and they received a parcel and inside was Abby's dressing gown and on the dressing gown the buttons had changed.

WALT create our own a Myth / legend
One cold day in Iceland there was a beautiful young women name Icela, she is the princess of
Iceland. One hot day in fire land there was a young man name firestone because he always collects stones. One day when Icela was walking around the land she spotted someone that she really loved it was firestone, he also spotted Icela and was also in love. So they went to the edge of there sides because they weren't aloud on each other's sides or otherwise Firestone will turn grey and Icela will turn brown and get sick. They looked at each other "who are you" said Icela "I'm firestone" said firestone "who are you" said firestone "I'm Icela princess of the land". The next morning Icela sneaked away from her castle with fire protection because she was going to the hot place that nobody has every went there which was fire land, Icela took a deep breath and walked in the fire land. While Icela was walking she spotted firestone. Icela couldn't use her magic because of the heat. Icela walked towards firestone, when firestone turned around he saw Icela then he said "what are you doing here!" Then Icela said "I'm here to-" but before Icela could finish she saw a big ball of ice. Icela knew what to do she ran with firestone. While they were running both of them saw catapults and other stuff like that Icela wondered why then firestone knew why there was a war going on for some reason then Icela started to feel dizzy then fainted she was turning brown firestone had to do something so he picked up Icela and carried her to Iceland. The ice king said to the fire king "WHERE IS MY DAUGHTER!" "I DON'T KNOW WHERE SHE IS" yelled fire king. Firestone emerged from his side with Icela, people saw them and then firestone said "stop the war Icela has turned brown" Icela was dying only a touch of fire can save her so an elder told him about it so firestone only has 50 seconds to do it. Firestone was concentrating really hard until there was a spark of fire then BOOM fire came firestone quickly rubbed fire on Icela's legs and arms. Nothing was happening could it be the end of Icela, but then Icela was turning blue "she's alive" said firestone with tears on his face, Icela's eyes were beginning to open Icela was awake everybody was cheering. A year later everybody was aloud to go on each other's sides now, why because they had strong protection and that everybody lived happily in there lands. THE END

WALT write a recount about an idea we had in our writers notebook.
I was At home I was sitting on the couch doing nothing, until my sister got an idea. Do you want to
know the idea! Okay then it is roasting marshmallows! How yummy is that, anyways back to the
story. my sister and I got two toothpicks a bag of marshmallows and a candle. My sister lit the
candle and then we begun roasting marshmallows. My sister showed me how to roast the marshmallows without burning my fingers my sister has done this in girl guides before so she knows what to do. The marshmallows were bubbling and it turned into fire then I blew the fire out. Every single time when the fire came I would always blow it out and sometimes the fire wouldn't go away. It tasted gooey and delicious at the same time. The smoke smells nice, if you smell my house you would know that my sister and I were roasting marshmallows. After we finished roasting we packed away our stuff and then after that I changed into my pj's and went back to the living room lay down on the couch with my waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrm blanket! Because it was so cold I snuggled up in my blanket and I watched TV. I was watching until dinner time do you want to know what it was. A burger with fish, yeah really, fish. Anyway I finished dinner then I had warm milk (like always) then I brushed my teeth and then I went to my warm bed ah goodnight oh and THE END.
