My grandparents 44th anniversary

On Friday the 29th of November it was a very special day for my grandparents. It was their 44th anniversary. And in the morning we woke up and we all did a short prayer. Then my aunty, cousin and I went and made breakfast. My aunty made pancakes, spring rolls while my cousin and I setted up the table and put the cereal on. When we finished putting it all together, we called them to come and eat. As soon as they walked in and saw the food that we have presented for them....their eyes went wide. They sat down and we all did the prayer first then we ate. "Hhhhmmm....this is the best breakfast!" My nana said while chewing her pancake. When we ate it all we had to go change for school. Since there were some spring rolls left we took some for school.

Reading: A bowl of rice

There is a boy named Duy who lives in Vietnam near the city of Quy Nhon. His family have their own Paddy field where they grow rice.

In spring the rice is planted, first the bullocks come and plough the paddy fields. Now its summer, everyone wakes up early in the morning for them to harvest the rice, because the stalks have turned yellow, and the seed heads are ripe. There was no school…….so Duy and his sister helped too, and what they did was chasing the geese away and get some water for the workers/farmers. And then when the long stalks of rice have been cut off, those two siblings go help and gather them up. Then Duy and his sister take them to their dad at the Threshing Machine. The Threshing Machines job is to separate the rice grains from the stalks. And when the basket if full of rice grains, Duy helps the workers/farmers to pour the grain into this really large sack, and so when the grains are dried the workers/farmers drags the big sacks and they tip it out and rake the grains along to the side of the road so that it can get dried in the hot sun. The next day on their way to school, Duy and his friends walked over the rice, cattles trampled (crush) on it and cars and bikes rode over it. But the grains were not damaged because it was protected by the husks of bran. After the grains are dry, Duys dad cleans them up by sweeping it and then he pours them into the milling machine. And when they finish everything, Duys mum and his aunt uses the stalks to weave baskets and hats and sell them in the supermarket. Duys mum has made vegetables and steamed rice for their lunch. “I Love Rice!” says Duy.

My Narrative Test

This is my writing test:

“Hhhhh” shivered Caleb. Caleb was all alone walking on the foot path with no one by his side. He was going home. It was nearly evening, there were dogs growling and birds going back to their nests. It got darker as the moon replaced the sun. Caleb opened his front door and grabbed a bucket because he forgot to milk the cows. So Caleb got a torch and walked out.

Some of the cow were asleep. Caleb had about 21 cows and only about ⅓ of them were awake. He didn’t bother waking all the other cows up. “Ssssss” Caleb stood up and got his torch up. “Who’s there!?” He looked around with his torch shining on the cows. “uh uh… hello, uh who’s there?” Caleb looked behind him and a cow was staring at him. He was so frightened he ran in his kitchen chucked the bucket on the floor and hid under his blanket.

“Hwaa” Caleb yawned. He walked into the kitchen and saw milk everywhere on the ground. Caleb was too tired to clean it that he walked over it. He staggered outside, to check if the cows were alright and to milk the cows. Caleb felt weird because every morning they always make lots and lots of sounds, but now its all silence. He walked and saw cows surrounding something. Caleb pushed through the cows and saw 1 cow lying on the ground. He fell on the ground and got his phone and called the vet. “Hello, you need to come quick my cow is sick!” and he rang his friend Tommy too to come and look after the cow.

The vet people came as well as Tommy and walked to the cow who was sick Sandy. Thats what he Caleb called her. They put her inside their car and went off with Caleb. “Is she going to be alright.” The vet person Sally and Michael looked at Caleb and said “Sandy is uh…..pregnant” Caleb’s eyes went wide.

When they got to the vet centre, they put Sandy into this room. “I’m sorry Caleb you're gonna have to wait here” Michael said while putting his hand Caleb’s shoulder. Caleb sat and waited for 2 whole hours. “Moooooo!” Sally came with something on her hand. Caleb stood up and looked. “Is she alright?” “Yes” nodded sally. “Sandy is gonna have to stay here for about a week with her baby, then you can come back” Caleb walked out feeling happy and went home.

Here is a Presentation about "My Awesome Friends!!". Hope you enjoy!!

My own writing: Night Alone Narattive

W.A.L.T: Show not tell when writing a paragraph.

I was walking alone in the darkness, the sun setted and birds going back to their nests. The moon slowly replaced the sun. Heavy winds blew past my face, I wrapped my hands around my body and started shivering, not only shivering with coldness shivering with fear. I looked up seeing trees going back and forth and side to side. It was so dark that I kept on tripping up on some sticks. When I was on the ground I saw a really big dark shadow above me. I looked up and......
