WAL about Mokihi and how they are made.
We went onto matariki thinglink and watched a video on mokihi.
Next we got a choice on creating a thinglink or a google slideshow to share our learning. my favourite fact is They get the old Mokihi and sometimes they would leave it in the river or put it in the marae underneath the stage so they don't get used.

Titanium slow writing

WALT use a technique to carefully craft our writing

If I didn’t run away,  if I was smarter,  if i didn’t go to school then I wouldn't have superpowers. Frightened,Scared,horrified I thought I would never go in the school grounds again papers everywhere a smashed glass windows and there were holes in the walls my heart was pounding as fast as a cheetah my teeth were gritting I get up I walk down the creepy corridor I turn my head to the right and see a teacher on the phone I walk out of the reacted school.I angrily walked passed the black cop car and I nervously hopped onto the fast bike.
Clutching my phist,grazing my teeth,twirling my hair. I am alone……….

I am on a big red rusty boat. I can hear the waves splashing on the sides of the boat. I can hear hooks getting hooked on the boat.I can smell pirates they smell like they haven’t had a shower in days. It is cold,dark,and echoing in the container. Then I cut a hole in the top of the container. I fly out of the container.

The pirates open the container all excited to see the cars they opened up the container and see a black space. “Where are the cars?” a pirate says. I can see that the chef’s are in trouble the pirates are invading the ship “OH NO.” I yelled the pirates come in the chef's kitchen.

One of the pirates take the wooden spoon off one of the chef’s and tasted the soup OH NO my soup.

I start to chase after the pirates as I was hiding against the wall tripping over all the pirates 1 by 1.

I throw a pirate overboard and into the sea the pirates invade. The engineers they try and scare them with their guns there big guns. I went up to see the captains and the captain of the pirates was up there so…..

I went back down and the pirate captain  said give me the key the captain gave the pirate captain the key and he put the key in and started the boat.

I told my robot friends to come up to take the pirates down and throw them overboard.I gently tapped the captain of the pirates he turned around and screamed in fear ahhhhhhhh. I pick him up and throw him overboard and give the captain the key back wave everyone good bye I go back in the cold dark container……...

Tom Trueheart

                                      Tom trueheart 

Hi my name is Tom. I have six brothers and their brides that I have to try and save. I am as small as a thumb. I wonder where my brothers and their brides are. I take my sword out of the patch it is as big as a stick. I point it around It starts glowing bright yellow. As the snow is falling on my head.I am getting colder and colder. I call my pet bird by my whistle. My bird is as white as the snow. I can’t see it because it blends in with the snow. sometimes we can go camouflaged when we see enemies. I whisper in my birds ear and I say “where are my brothers and their brides”. he takes me to the far casle they were looked in a jar they saw us by the window. There was nobody in the room so we go camouflaged and save them.until I heard foot steps. there is someone coming we hide under the dark draw. The man comes in and looks under everything. My bird is turning back to white. I get my sheld it has a love heart on it. We go in the dark corner where he could not see us. I put my sheld in front of us. Hopefully he won’t see it we heard his wife calling his name jack yelled jill. “Ok” said jack. Jack locks the door so nobody could get in. I take my sword out of my patch and cut the rope to get in the jar.I run on top of the jar to make it lose. I whisper to my bird “take the lid off please” said “Ok” said the bird. I take them out of the jar. We her guards outside I don’t think we can get out. The man came into have another look. I take my 6 brothers and their brides. the man sees that the top of the jar is on the floor. We go in the corner. As the man is turning around we tiptoe out of the room “everything it so big” I said. I see a door our dad is waiting right by the “come on come on” we have to go. We ran as fast as we could so we hopped on the bird and through my dad on we were flying as fast as a cheetah. we flew past a guard and took his helmet . we finally get home we walked in the house my mum gives us a big hug .I say to my mum “the house is as shiny as a diamond” she say “thanks”. “by the way your guys rooms are as tidy as a new house” said mum. I walk in my room “wow” I say. “I hear someone coming hide”. I said “ AHHHHHHHH” It’s the guards they have knives and swords we go in our underground trail. I say let’s go let’s go I pull the leather in the underground trail. I gather everyone in the safe room. I count everyone “there is only 10 people in the safe room” I say where are the 5 brides they say “they're still in the house” “oh”. I said I have to go save them but it’s too late the guards had already taken them. I called my bird again we have to go and get the 5 brides. we go through the drippy jungle through the white snow and in the castle. I look in the room where I saved all my brothers and their brides there not in their. I looked in every room except the king and queens room. I saw a safe I would of thought they were in there but they weren't. They were in a secret room where no one new where it was. I saw a little red button so I pressed it. I saw a little door that had opened. I went in it there was the princess brides. I take them out the king sees that the little door is open he saw me “oh no’’ I say “he saw me’’. I grab them and go I use my sword to make the guards fant for years so we can have the kingdom to ourselves. I go through the drippy jungle through the white snow and then home. I tell them the good news they are all shocked we move in the castle and enjoy the rest of our lives. The end…………….

Something Fishy

Something Fishy
One day I was sitting at the dry cleaners. I was reading an old magazine. As I was yawning and  turning the page on the magazine. I saw a shiny blue light in the dryer. I put the magazine down and got out of the old chair. I opened the dryer and pecked through. I opened it up all the way. I touched the water as I was taking my fingers out of the water. I felt a tingle I took my fingers out and rubbed them together. It felt strange so I took a big breath and put my whole face in it.

I jumped in the dryer and pushed of the wall. I was so amazed and shocked. I saw heaps of glowing fish.As I was watching all of the different fish swim past my eyes.I saw lots of tokens coins and dollars on the ground and as the log for the tree. All the different colour fish was so awesome. I saw this one little yellow fish swimming right past me. So I followed it until it swam really fast. I heard something swimming closer and closer.

I turned my head to the left and saw a big scary shark made out of jeans.
its teeth was as sharp as a blade.I was screaming and lots of bubbles came out of my mouth. I was so scared I froze until……….I saw a tree that was made out of coins it was as skinny as a branch. I pecked at the back of me it was really close. I saw the whole that I came through. So I swam to the hole as fast as I could. The shark was swimming so fast that it was almost as fast as a cheetah.

I got closer to the whole I was kicking my feet as fast as I could. I finally reached the whole and…..I got out I was so scared. I looked at the dryer it was still blue but then it turned black. as soon as it turned black the blue jeans came out. As I was dragging my finger closer. I almost touched it until. I heard a voice saying “I think those are mine”. I turned my head and looked up. I was freaking out but in my head. Because it was a shark I slightly turn my head back.then I waited till my washing was finished then I went home. To be continued…………...
