Explanation Text

Room 3 have been learning the features of an Explanation text. We have used this burger model to help us understand what parts are included when writing an explanation text.


We put our own burgers together in the right order and matched parts of an Explanation Text about the life cycle of a frog.

This week we learnt how to write and introduction for an Explanation Text using topic words. Once we had done that we read each other work and highlighted the topic words our friends had used. We gave them feedback on what we liked about their work.



We are learning to predict what will happen next...

We used the word predict to guess how he would find his jandle. We thought of many different ideas... here are some of them!!

Haere Atu!

Today we read the book Haere Atu as a whole class. We were focusing on finding out what Māori words meant by using the book to find clues. Ana Fehoko worked really hard to make sure she had the right definition for each word and could use it appropriately in a sentence. Great work Ana Fe! Check out her learning below!

Jolly Roger and the Coconuts - narrated by Mariah

Today the Spidermans reading group read Jolly Roger and the Coconuts. We were focusing on finding speech and making sure we read like we would talk in real life. Mariah did an awesome job of making sure speech in the text sounded like talking, with some help for her buddy Savannah. Way to go guys!
