Sometimes I will put your Homefun writing task here, on the blog. You can type up your writing in the comments section below. Have fun!
Week 2, Term 3



Week 1, Term 3



Week 11, Term 2



Aaaaaaaaah!!!!! We’re flying!

Write a short story about what is happening in this picture. How do you think the children feel? What happened right before this picture was taken? What happens next? Try to include some of the language features we have been learning about this term: similes, onomatopoeia and alliteration. 


Week 2, Term 2



You find this little guy one day walking home from school. Your write a letter to your mum or dad convincing them to let you keep him. 

Miss Chalmers' example letter:

Dear Mum and Dad, 

Look who I found when walking home from school today. Isn't he the cutest? I've already named him Stevie. Now I know we already have a dog, and a rabbit too, but let me give you a few reason explaining why I should be allowed to keep this little guy. 

First of all, I promise to look after him all by myself. I'll even pay for his food with my own pocket money! I know I said I would do the same thing with the rabbit, but this time I swear I'll keep my promise!

Secondly, I think Stevie has lost his family. He's all alone in the world. How could I just put him back where I found him, not ever knowing if he would survive? I simply MUST keep him! 

My last reason why I think I should be allowed to keep this little turtle, is because at the age I am now I should be learning how to be more responsible. Having a pet all of my own will help me to learn new skills, like looking after someone else. Don't you agree?

From your loving daughter, 
Miss Chalmers

P.S - I promise to do the dished for a whole week!



Week 6, Term 1
This week your task is to design your very own monster! You can use the page below to help you design your monster. There is also an online dice, if you don't have an actual dice at home (These are both on the home fun page too).

After you have designed your monster, you will need to describe it. Let's not be boring - get some good adjectives in there!



Week 5, Term 1


This week we are starting a writing unit about how to write narratives. A narrative is a fictional or made-up story. Use the picture of the stairs to write your own narrative. Use the 5Ws to help you include enough detail in your story. Such as:
Who are the characters in your story?
Where are the characters going?
What is at the end of the stairs?
Why are the characters doing what they're doing?
When in your story taking place?


Week 1, Term 1



You can publish your FACT OR FIB statements below in the "comments" section. We will have fun reading them on Friday, trying to decide which ones are true and which ones are false!

  29. On the spooky stairs by Seren Chadwick

    Once upon a time back in the olden days there lived a brother and sister and there names were Griffin and Seren. When they were walking they found a treasure map and it led them to the witches castle. On there way to the castle they saw some spooky stairs and they walked up the stairs and when they held on to the sticks they almost fell down the cliff. When they got to the castle they saw a witch making a potion. They were scared because they thought that they were going to be cursed on. When the witch turned around the kids ran so fast back to there home and they lived happily ever after.

  39. The Memories of ANZAC

    In 1915 at Gallipoli, all the countries had a World War. Some of our soldiers died for their country. ANZAC biscuits are eaten for ANZAC Day. When their soldiers died, their family and country was very sad that they had died but they took a lot of care of our country. We all remembered that we took a lot of care and supported our country but other soldiers saved the day. At the parade, there will be poppies, old photos and some other cool ANZAC stuff. We will all be listening to The Last Post and they will announce the heroes to come up and get their medals

  40. Dear Mum,

    I found this little turtle that was in the bushes hiding from us. It was very sad and lonely. I have named him Peter already. Firstly, I will get his food with my pocket money and look after him a lot. Secondly, Peter might of lost his family that lives far, far away in Europe. Lastly, I am old enough to look after my own pet because I am tall enough & big enough to do it myself.

  41. Dear Mummy,

    Can i keep this little guy. I have already called her Lily and i will give you a few reasons why i should keep her.

    First of all because she might have no family and be all alone out on the side of the road. If I take care of her it will also teach me how to be responsible of other things too, like looking after someone who's hurt. The third reason is because I am old enough to learn how to be responsible of my stuff at school, just like being responsible of a little turtle.

    Please can you think about it.

    P.S I promise to look after Peter at school

    I am going to build a home for Duke and feed him all the time. I hope he doesn't ever get big because he is such a wonderful pet.

    MAGICAL ISLAND by Seren Chadwick

    Did you know that there is a floating castle in the sky? In the castle lived the King of dogs who was named Ty and he had a lot of work to do. He had King study to do, he also had to have a shower, and get ready for his birthday party. He was turning 41. The king loved his floating castle because it had a balcony to see all the lovely things outside, like the birds, butterfly's, the Waterfall and the sparkly stars that lived on the roof of the castle which disappeared when there was trouble. The king ruled over the people who loved to play and that's what they did for his birthday celebrations.

Ben jumped down to eat the food. All the zookeepers said ''YAY!!!!!'' they all yelled of excitement. They celebrated the 25 years of ROAR! Park!!!

  57. Hi my name is Kayne and I am a big smelly giraffe, do you want to know why I’m up this tree? Well, I was walking along with my friend, his name is banana joey. It was a hot day and we were heading to the pools to cool off, when suddenly a snake slivered up my leg. I got so scared I jumped up a tree next to me. My friend ran home to tell his dad that I was up a tree and a snake was waiting to eat me. Banana joey yelled to his dad hurry!!! Hurry!!! let’s save Kayne and they ran back to the tree. Banana joey’s dad stomped on the snakes head and it got a fright and the snake slid away. I then jumped off the tree and banana joey caught me. We then all walked to the nice cold pool to have some fun.

    I looked around, but I couldn’t see anyone then I heard the little voice again “Help! Help!”. I looked down and there was a tiny man. He was wearing a green top hat, green clothes and brown shoes. He had a long ginger beard and he was crying saying “Help! Help me Lucy! My stuck” … “My stuck” I thought … then I woke up, there wasn’t a little green man, it was George he really wanted a banana! I had been daydreaming all this time!
