Yesterday morning Pt England school had visitors from Hiwi The Kiwi. Mr and Mrs Minstrel talked to us about keeping our environment clean and keeping our birds alive. They gave posters to people who answered their questions. They taught us different songs and actions that had different meanings and tell you some things you can do. Mr Minstrel showed us a photo of his favorite type of birds and also told us that one of those bird died from eating plastic from the ocean. Mr and Mrs Minstrel had ask us if we could put our rubbish in the right place or our birds will die from the plastic.

Show Not Tell

This week in Mr Wiseman's literacy class we have been working on how to show instead of tell in the stories we write. The subject we wrote about was cross country. The part I chose was the the ending of cross country. This is the paragraph I wrote.

My nerves started growing as the finish line was in sight. I felt the burning heat in my chest as i raced past Miss Berry. My heart was pounding like the beat of a drum, My stomach twisted and turned. Finally i sprinted over the bright white line exhausted, The race was over.
