Hello, animals! By Philomena

We are learning to understand and use descriptive language.

Success criteria-I know I can do this when I use appropriate adjectives, adverbs and verbs in my writing.


On Saturday I went to Rotorua with my brother, cousins and nephew.
When we arrived in Rotorua, we got off at Paradise Springs Wild Life to feed some animals. As soon as we got inside, we paid for ten packets of animal food.

Then we walked along an old pathway that led us to a very large fence for us to see the lions and we weren't allowed to feed them. So we had a look around and we saw a big dark long, cave that was filled with so many lions that I couldn't count all of them. After a little while we waved our goodbyes to the lions and walked back towards the other path.

Next we walked into a bush that had a gate so we opened it and it led us into a large yard. There was a garden full of vegetables but they looked fake and old. Then we saw a little, old, worn out shed which had a big sign in the the door that said open. When I opened it, it creaked. We went inside then out of nowhere a cockatoo bursted right at us so we ducked. My cousin didn't duck in time, so it landed on his head.

As time passed on , we went into another area which had another sign that said"Eels can grow up to 200 centimetres long and have been alive for more than 50 years. We continued to walk deeper into the sanctuary and found a narrow pond that had more than 10 eels in it. They were very large and we got to feed them with the food packets that we had brought. As I was watching them fight for the food, the sun set around us. Soon we moved on and it led us to six hungry pigs who kept snorting at us. And of course they were muddy. However I didn't want to feed them because they ate a lot. Their mama pig was sitting by herself snorting at us as well. I felt sorry for her and went over to her with my little nephew following with is packet of food which he took off my cousin.

After feeding the mama pig, we said goodbye to them. As soon as we left, we found out that it was getting dark and so we had to pick up the speed. Next we went to a waterfall that stated" This fountain is a tourist attraction it was used in the 1800's till now and it is okay for drinking". After reading the sign , we felt thirsty so we tried it. It was so cold but very refreshing.




Next we fed some ducks and there were lots of them. Then, we went over to the llamas and the wallabies but they were sleeping under a small tree. We moved to the horses. They were big, small, tall and short. There were so many of them. However we weren't allowed to feed them because they had hay.

Later on, we found the most beautiful swans but they were only two. I just wanted to feel it's feathers. Finally we got to see our last animal, they were the cute and cuddly bunnies. They were so adorable and and an employee told me if I wanted to hold one, so I did. I just wanted to take him home he was so soft. Then we waved good bye to the animals. As we left, my nephew wanted to stay with the animals but we told him that he cannont stay or else we will leave him be himself.

I had a very fun and exciting time at Rotorua. However it would be better next time if we had gone earlier so we could have a longer time to explore Rotorua.

Hi Oli, want to have a sleepover at my house? By Aiden

On the weekend , my cousin came over for a sleepover. I hadn't had a sleepover in 4 weeks with anyone. I knew I was going to have a fun time. First we had to pick up Oli (cousin) from his house. When we got there, there were a lot of branches because they were cleaning up their garden (making it look amazing). When we were there it didn't look amazing, because they were in the middle of cleaning it. My auntie's mum was helping the. think we need her the next time we clean up our garden. We picked up Oli and went back to my house to have a memorable time. When we arrived back at my house we played on the P.C (computer). We played roblox because we have been playing with each other over the past week online. Roblox is an online website with games made by other people with roblox accounts. We played Speed run 4. Speed run 4 is a game with a number of different levels. our goal in the game is to pass all the levels and when you do, you get a badge. You collect badges from different roblox games. When Oli and I kept on losing, because it was too hard. Soon after that were off to church. My brother and I served while Oli sat with my sister and my dad. My brother,Oli and I drank the wine and ate the bread. The wine had a a strong taste and the bread tasted like an ice cream cone. Church was fun and the game that we played after was too glorious to speak of. It was the newest demo released on P.S.N (Play Station Network). It was F.I.F.A (Federation internationale de football association) 16. You can pre order the game on PS3, PS4 (Play Station 3 and 4) or Xbox 360 and Xbox One. We made a FUT (Fifa ultimate team) draft which is where you pick a player on the screen and make a full team and play as them against other teams. We made so many teams! We had the best time ever and I wanted for the sleepover to be everyday. I really liked having fun with Oli. I hope we can have another sleepover next week. We are learning to understand and use descriptive language. I know this when I use adjectives to make my writing more interesting.
