Review Term 3

In LS1, this term was full of exciting things like Art & PE

Thinking back on the last few months, I’m so happy about doing our Speech Writing. 

I’ve been busy with all sorts of subjects, but the best part about Term 3 for me was Split Strategy. 

When it comes to reading, my favourite text I read was Hearts.I most enjoyed reading Respond To Text . 

It was super fun, especially when I got to the persuasive writing.My favourite task in writing this term was recount  because i love doing writing work on paper & on my chromebook

In Maths, I especially enjoyed when we learnt about doing the strategy that Miss Tele’a told because if you get an hard equation you can use the strategy to help you out

For our special Inquiry experiments, I really enjoyed the ice cubes because it was melting & we had to guest which one will melt first

In P.E. (Physical Education), I had a blast participating in Multisports because we can do three different sports at the same time

I learnt how to play hockey & soccer

But you know what? I also found some areas where I can even better.  When doing reading, I need to practise to respond to text. I don’t even get the answers right. While I loved writing, I’ve noticed I need to work on adding more details to my writing & put the words that i know 

Maths was interesting, but I want to get better at doing the strategy that Miss Tele’a told us

In our special projects, I realised I need to work on writing more words in my special projects

In P.E., I think I could improve, especially in swimming because we have to get better at getting change fast & out of the pool

Looking forward to the next term, I’m excited about Film Festival

Figurative Language

This week we have been learning about figurative Language in poetry. Figurative Language is the use of non-literal phrases or words to create further meaning in writing or speech.

First we had to think about in a group what figurative language, a simile, a metaphor, a hyperbole, and an idiom is. A Simile is to figure a speech involving one thing. A metaphor is a thing regarded as something else. A hyperbole is a state or claims that are not meant to be taken literally. For example : I can eat a horse. And an idiom is a group of words by using individual words.

Next we had to write down 3 sentences using metaphors. Metaphors are non – literal. For example : Life is a highway. Her eyes were diamonds. He is a shining star.

Then we had to write down 3 similes we could use to describe this red character. The name of the movie is called turning red. For the 3 similes I wrote down. He was a red panda. She’s so fluffy like a cat and she has magic.

Afterwards, I had to choose a character to write down 3 sentences about using similes or metaphors. I picked Matilda because I think it will be awesome and fun to write about.

Lastly I had to write 4 sentences using both similes and metaphors to describe what it would feel like on a rollercoaster.

I enjoyed doing this task for writing. I did well at describing the red panda. I need to improve on writing down more similes and metaphors.
