Happy Mother's Day!

Room 11 want to wish a happy Mother's Day to all our mums, nanas and aunties out there. We hope our mums enjoyed the special cards we made last week. Don't they look awesome? Inside we wrote metaphor poems about what makes our mums special. We found out that a metaphor is when you compare one thing to another without using "like" or "as" (that one is a simile!)

We analysed an exemplar and wrote a shared poem together first:

Miss Chalmers chose one metaphor from each poem to include here. Aren't they fabulous? (You can click on the metaphors to make them bigger...)

Damon's Holiday Slides

Wow! Check out Damon's writing that he did about his holiday trip to Whakatane and White Island - isn't it incredible? Making slides like this is a great way to practice your writing skills in an authentic way. Why not give it a go and write about your holiday experiences? You could also include photos if you have any!

Damon - you are a rock star! I loved reading about the helicopter ride :)
