A Comment to Stavely At Methven Primary

Dear Stavely,

I enjoyed reading your poem because it had lots of clever sentences and I learnt that Tenzing and Edmund Hillary went all the way to the summit of Mt Everest. My Favourite part was when it said the queen has given Sir Ed a medal. I didn’t know you could get a medal for climbing a mountain. Thank you for sharing your work.

A Collaborative Comment To Our Buddy Class

To our buddy class at Methven Primary School,

We enjoyed your poem because it had lots of detail and we learnt things we did not know before. We didn’t know that Sir Ed climbed the snowy mountains. Our favourite part was when you described the horribly, dangerous mountain.

Keep up the great work
Room Ten at Pt England School

How to be Cyber Smart and Leave A Positive Comment

As part of our Cyber Smart programme Room Ten have been working on writing an effective comment to people, one that we would be proud of,  that is respectful and positive.

Lately we have been reading the blog posts from our Buddy Class in the South Island,  a year 2 and 3 class at Methven Primary .

They have been sharing their amazing poems and artwork .                    
We had to used our " How to comment on a blog" card which guides us and helps us write a quality comment and therefore help us leave a positive footprint online.
Some examples of our comments will be posted soon.

Collaborative Writing

Our inquiry this term is The Pt England Way and our value is respect. Room Ten have been taking part in lots of activites which require them to work together well and respect each others ideas and the way each other work. One of these activities was Collaborative Writing where the children needed to work as a team to write a story. They have shared one of the stories below.

A Tiger Shark is hunting for food they can smell your blood from a distance. The Tiger Shark meets a fish and it eat's the fish quickly. As the fish went down the sharks throat it was began to punch the shark . The fish punches the shark so hard that it made a gigantic hole and the fish swam away.
