Writing sample halo chicken 4

Description: For writing we wanted to do some random writing. Mine is based on halo 4 but mine is about a chicken that's in the game. He try's to get rid of all the butchers that are trying to get the chicken and cut him up in into chicken. So that they can sell him but he is trying to also defend his family from getting hurt. My favourite thing about this story is that he has a girlfriend called portana and she is a piece of poop from the chicks bottom or butt. He shots eggs from his bottom and he can get upgrades so he can get a better butt gun like machine guns or pistols and more. The chicken is writing the story because it's is like when you go to war and he is writing to his family's so that's why it is got lots of mistakes.


Feedback/feedforward: I like how you did the story random but maybe you could practise a lot more on handwriting. Houston

Evalaution:I think I did got in this story because I put some funny stuff in it. I think I need to make it a bit  longer because it is short.

Description: We have been doing writing for a while now. We chose to make a sample about one of our favourite pieces. I chose to do it about my camp writing because camp has been the funniest thing we have done this term. Here is my story underneath maybe comment about it in the comment part and tell me what I could improve on because that will help me a lot.

The day’s that never end camp edition

Hi my name is Jake. I go to russell street school but you can say RSS for short. Right now we are going to el rancho camp. We start to head to the bus wow!!! I can’t believe that we are going to el rancho even so I’ve gone to highland home I still can’t believe it!!! Troy our teacher shouts out next stop el rancho camp. Me and my friend max are playing a game where you have to guess what the person was thinking once Houston was thinking of a bare bottom yeti. No one got it but I got yeti. Someone ask Troy when we were going to be there Troy said 10 min yay everyone shouts… Someone asked Troy again when we were going to be there he said 5 min. I start to count down in my head 60, 59, 58, 57, 56, 55, 5 min later the bus driver almost goes past el rancho. We start to go in the driveway where here someone shouts.We are getting of the bus and a giant swamp monster shoots like a cannon from the ground. Just kidding we only saw a big building and our bags. The boys cabin have to go first for the look around el rancho. Us boys have a plan for where we are sleeping. Oh no I better stop writing because my mum is coming up the stairs. I am suppose to be cleaning my room bye.

Chapter 2

The arrival

Hi I am back from cleaning my room and I’m ready to do some writing so where was I… I was talking about I just got to camp.We are going to check out our cabin and I am going to be on top bunk with max on bottom bunk.

Try guess why… Because today is the day where I Jake crawford gets to go on the… Wait for it… The water slide it's going to be the funniest. If it rains it's going to be even funnier but sadly I don’t think it is but it's still going to be fun. We have to have breakfast first. For breakfast I am having the same as always, we then have archery then mini golf. Now is the water slide when we finished our leader was soaked because of me I don’t know why? Now is lunch, play time and now we have skit practice, camp diaries,camp concert. Goodnight.

Busy and active listening

Description: we chose to do learning about active,busy and me2 listening active is when you are listening to the speaker and looking and agreeing and disagreeing with the speaker and then telling them why.busy listening is when the speaker is talking to you but you are playing with something or you are talking to someone else. Me2 listening is when someone is speaking and you are listening but then you but in and they try to talk but then you are still talking so then they just give up.


Big idea: for the learning we had to make a 30 sec video that showed 2 or 3 ways of listening (active,busy and me2 listening). In this video up above we are going to or have showen you what active and busy listening is. I learnt that it is best to be a active listener but it is best to be a busy listener when someone is being mean to you.

Feedback/feedforward:I think that you did good at being the host of the video. I don't have anything that you could improve on. Max b

Evaluation: I think I did good at speaking clearly because I can here myself easily I think I am good at being a active listener because I always know what to do and I am always agreeing and disagreeing and I always am looking at the speaker.

Waitangi Day post

Description: for the past two weeks we have been learning about the treaty of waitangi we had to show what we have learnt we had to put this on a creation that has to get enough facts so we can get it on the rubric.The rubric shows us how much information we have on our blog post there is five places those are pre, Uni, multi, relational and extended abstract.

Here is a link to a website I look at

Question:Why did they have the treaty.

The Treaty of Waitangi was signed in the grounds of James Busby’s house in Waitangi, in the Bay of Islands. It was signed on February 6th 1840 and is considered by many to be the founding document of New Zealand. It was signed by 500 Maori Chiefs and the British Leaders representing the British Crown.

There were two different versions signed, one in Maori and one in English. The wording was not exactly the same. And so the words did not mean the same to both parties, this has caused many problems over the years. Especially as past Governments have not always abided by the Treaty agreements.

    Celebrating New Zealand's Waitangi DayWaitangi Day is a public holiday held on 6 February every year to commemorate the signing of New Zealand's founding document - the Treaty of Waitangi - in 1840.

Feedback/feedforward: I think you could put more questions. I think you did got on the video because you spook Cleary. Max
Evaluation: i think I did good at getting all the info because there is lots of things you learn about. I think  I could improve on having more things like the image video.
