Daffodil Day

The daffodil was chosen as the symbol of hope for all affected by cancer because of its reputation as a hardy annual flower, pushing its way through the frozen earth after a long winter to herald the return of spring, new life, vitality and growth. As one of the first flowers of spring, the daffodil symbolises rebirth and new beginnings.

It was a rainy, wet, cold and a muddy day… but didn't care. It was our cross country!

I felt excited because It was our turn after the 10 year old girls. When I was running my dad said 'go Hoera' so then I went faster.

I was proud when I came 8th. I think I might try and come 3rd next year.

Yesterday we learnt about two things
Healthy Earth
Healthy you

Healthy Earth was about our rubbish making it to the sea and killing animals like Turtles,seals,birds and whale.

Healthy YOU was about seeing how much sugar is in my food. Today I looked at my lunchbox and worked out how much sugar my food has:

  • my chips has 1 grams
  • my yogurt has14.8grames
in total there is 15.8 grames of sugar in my food today!

Recount: A time i was successful. 

W.A.L.T: Retell of a past experience 
W.I.L.F: Audience has all the information needed.

Should I try it I thought. Nah i  might fall off. ''Have a try Hoera , you know how to ride a motorbike" my dad said. "Yep, but this is almost a big persons bike and I'm only nine".

Then I thought I can do this. I slowly walked to the bike. My whole body was shaking.

My dad jumped on and kick started the bike for me. He jumped off and held the bike for me. Man, when I jumped on to my dads motorbike my heart was pounding. I took off slowly.

I was nervous. But I rid it! All by myself!

Purpose: Describe a moment in time for the soldiers.
WALT : Describe what and how the ANZAC soldiers would have:
1- Seen, 2- Felt, 3-Heard, 4- Smelt onboard the ship as they waved    
                     goodbye to their loved ones on their way to WAR!

As I sat on the edge of the large, hard steel ship with my legs dangling limply over board I could see…….my children waving and my wife crying.

I felt... lost. I don’t know how to use a gun.

I could hear soldiers sobbing and my wife screaming as if she was dying.

I could smell perfume in the air, smoke from the engine of the ship.

I felt lost. I’m shocked. I do not want to leave my family.
Hoera. 15/5/14
