Whale Rider

WAL to identify bias in a text.  We had to highlight the words that showed Koro Apirana being biased.  He would be mean to Kahu because he wanted a boy to be the chief but Kahu was next in line and she is a girl.  

I thought this activity was tricky to find where he was being biased.

The easiest part was the ones where it said he was grumpy with her.  The hardest part was where it didn’t say it very clearly.

This activity was really interesting.
I’m enjoying learning about Whale Rider.

Persuasive Writing

WAL to identify persuasive techniques.  We had to figure out which technique they were using.  We had practised these techniques in the skits we created.  For example

They dress up like a scientist so we believe their expert opinion
30 Seconds has a slogan :”Spray and Walk Away”
Emotional Appeal makes you feel guilty if you don’t use the product

The technique I found easiest to remember is Slogan
The technique that was hardest was Band wagon

Overall, it was Easy

Term 2 Week 2

Yesterday we went to the Buddhist  Temple for a trip. To learn about our values and about giving and sharing. The whole of year 6s and the whole of year 5s and we went on a bus there and some parents came on the trip to to help with the supervision. and when we got there some monks were waiting with umbrellas so we did not get wet. When we were there they talked about 3g and 4g ,3g means good deeds, good thoughts, say good words. 4g means give others joy, give others hope, give others confidence, and give others convenience.

After we did we had some brownies and some water and then we watched a video of sharing and giving. After the police came to talk about 3g and 4g they choose some people to come up and  dress in a police uniform and they did a role-play of them playing. Then one person playing on his own because he said that he was cool and he could play on his own. But then the other police were playing passes and he asked to join because he was seeing how much fun they had together as a group so he asked and they said yes and that meant you should always let other people play with you.

After we went back on the bus and went back to school it was rainy just like it was when we were going there.

what i liked most about it was the brownies
