Waitama The Scrapbook

The Scrapbook

Inside this scrapbook
are picture’s that have never been drawn
never been seen
never been thought

They're hiding

They won’t come out in daylight
they can hear us  
we can't hear them
They will wake up
deep into the night,
they won’t come out for joy,
for people, or for peace

When the sun is up
they will stay hiding within the page
will they ever come out
will they ever be seen
are they still there,

Would I be it ,
act it, love it.
   
Maybe there aren’t many
it could be only one picture
and it’s all we need to show
inside this big scrapbook

every Scrapbook in the world

is like this

Trintiy Persuasive Writing

I think that schools should not have to have uniforms. I think that children should just have to wear their everyday clothing.
There are many reasons why children should  wear uniforms. But who cares about that not children they just want to wear want they want.

Also if children have to wear uniforms why don’t the teachers wear school uniforms too. They’re not any more special than us kids. There apart of the school as well aren't they. So i don't think children have to wear uniform because the teachers wouldn’t like to wear the uniform either.


Some childrens parents do not have the money to buy uniforms for their kids because it is to dare. but if they could wear the clothes that they want then parents don't have to buy uniforms or waste money on uniforms too.

So i think Kids that wear uniforms and should not go throgh all of that torcher.That are my reasons for why children should not wear uniform

Rachel The Cupboard



The Cupboard

Inside this mysterious unknown cupboard
never been opened
never been touched
what could be inside this mysterious cupboard

They’re hiding

As things who or you could not  find or see
where they are placed
in small tight places not heard
not found not seen

People wonder people watch
thinking what would be in
that cupboard they watch with their
implosive looks just imagining
something  inside

All morning through falling darkness
as nothing much really happens
its  just a cupboard in the corner
what could go wrong
would I care
would I wonder

Its been a while just staring
at the cupboard in the corner
wondering what would in there



Just  wonder if its just bits and pieces inside
every cupboard in the world is like this.

Veisinia Xtramaths

This is my Xtramaths result. It shows that I got all of my basic facts right but I still have to improve on going faster.

Lavinia Scale Drawing

Scale Drawing Assessment:

One thing I found easy was coloring in the final picture at the end.
One thing I found hard was drawing the right part of the picture in the right square.
I like how the final design looks like the original because most of the drawing is in the right place.  Also the two colors I used both work well together.
Next time I would try to rule all lines in a straight line.

Isabella Scale Drawing

Scale Drawing assessment


1 thing I found easy was drawing up the grid and making the lines straight

1 thing I found hard was placing the information in the same boxes

I like how the final design looks like the original design because I made the petals the same size.

Next time I would take my time and make sure the boxes are the same and even.
