This week in writing we have been using precise nouns to make our writing more specific for the reader.
We took a paragraph and changed the nouns from general nouns to precise nouns.
Here is an example.
In the weekend I had to do lots of shopping with my Mum. We went to the shop diary to get some food. We also went to look for a present for my cousin’s birthday. I had to choose between a doll and a soft toy. After that we went to the shop to buy some clothes, I got two new items and a pair of shoes. Because I had been so good, mum took me to the shop to buy an ice block. Lucky me!
Next week we have some very exciting things happening at Hay Park School. On Tuesday we are holding student led toolkits where students from other schools in the Ako Hiko Cluster will be coming to Hay Park. This half-day action packed event will focus on creative and collaborative use of digital technologies to promote innovation and learning.
And then on Thursday the 12th of November Hay Park will be part of the Google Expedition Pioneer Programme! Want to know more? Check out this Youtube clip. Flox Class will be visiting the moon!
