We have been looking at using language features in our writing such as metaphors and similes, and using descriptive language.
Here's a wonderful example by Luca...

The diamond stage dazzled and we were stars about to show our beauty to the world.
It was like the adults were hypnotized slaves, listening to our most important instructions.
My part was coming up, I was a cat that just got chased by a cheetah.
I was glued to the audience as if I was at a magic show, watching as closely as an eagle hunting for its dinner.
I danced like a drunk hyena, listening to my own heartbeat.
Billy was as psycho as a pig that had just eaten a bowl of ice cream.
At the end the children faded away like shadows with no light to recreate them.


So proud of this class and their amazing assembly. What a highlight to share our learning to a large audience. Every child was a STAR!


Some of our class were reading about dams and how water is stored. The article kept referring to cubic metres and we were not sure how big a cubic metre really is.... SO we made one out of newspaper! It wasnt very sturdy so Jack decided to make one out of wood. He cut up 12 pieces of wood to 1 metre lengths at home, then at school with the help of Mr Parnell he drilled holes and put screws in to hold it all together. Now it's stuck in our classroom and a favourite place to do our learning!
