Editing made up story

Here is our edited story.
Things we learnt about were
We aren’t allowed to use then, and, also and because at the beginning of a sentence.
Speech marks go on the OUTSIDE of the full stop or other punctuation.
The end of a sentence can be marked by a full stop, an exclamation mark or a question mark. You don’t need to put an extra full stop after a question mark.
Remember to check ALL capital letters. Sometimes we need to put them in and sometimes we need to take them out.
On Monday 24th September 2018 Room 7 did a blindfold challenge. We wanted to have fun and make our morning a bit interesting by playing a game.

Firstly Miss Ashley told us the rules which was “no touching the tables or pieces of paper on the floor or you will lose points.“  However you are allowed to touch the chairs because you sometimes have to step over them to get to the end. Next we got into buddies. My buddy was Lucina.  We had to line up by the heater in our buddies.

First it was my turn to go so Lucina (my buddy)  put the blindfold on me (over my eyes) and helped me to stand up. The blindfold was tight it felt like a constrictor boa on my face. I felt so confused and disorientated because the blindfold was covering my eyes. Lucina told me to “go left, right, straight and step over.” I was feeling nervous and a little bit scared because “what if she was tricking me?“ and I was really doing something silly. I got to the end safely and took my blindfold off.

Next it was my buddies turn so I helped her put the blindfold on. I told her to walk straight first, then next turn left. She doesn’t know her lefts and rights so she went the wrong way.I said “no your other left” and it was a little bit funny. In the end we got to the blue fruit tray and we made it without losing any points!

I think I would like to do this activity again because it was cool to do something different and fun in class especially since it’s the end of the term and I think we are all feeling kind of tired.

Thursday 21st of September.

“Today we are playing the blindfold challenge everyone” said Miss Ashley, whole of room 7 replied “Okay Miss Ashley” with an excited voice Miss Ashley said “ okay this are the rules if you bump into a table you lose 2 points if you step on paper you lose 1 point but if you get up to chairs you won’t lose points because you get to use them to get to the end and touch the purple cardboard” room 7 replied “Okay we know all the rules now Miss Ashley”

All of room 7 got into buddies but because Havea didn't have anyone so me and Railey put him in our group because he is our friends so we wanted to be nice to him that’s why we put him our group, I was the first one in our group who went first I felt paralyzed and also blind while I had the blindfold on when Railey and Havea had their turn they felt the same as well.

Me and Havea had a hard time telling Railey where to go because he was kinda not listening to me and him because he went his own way but he did really good because I liked how thinked about what we said so he was a very good listener and followed instructions.

I was not paying a tenchin at all to Railey and I thought to myself “Am I being a good friend not listen to Railey” so after that I was being a good friend to Railey but he was happy that I did not touch anything to lose points for our team I was  happy that Railey and Havea made it to the end and made us have 30 points also that made our team win the game.

My favorite course was all of them because they were very easy they were a very cool team game so that made the whole of room 7 very happy and also extremely FUN! The easy one was the first because Miss Ashley made it easy for us to get past and make us get EXTREMELY EXCITED!

The Yoga Challenge

The Yoga Challenge 
On the 17th of september 2018 room 7 did yoga all of room 7 were split into groups of 2 also Miss Ashley told everyone in the class all the rules then after that we began.

On the first pose it was very easy so that got everyone Extremely pumped
up for other pose so we got to the second pose there was 12 poses the second pose got a little bit harder but we tried our best boys are rivals against girls I don't know why. We started to go on the third pose everyone said THAT’S EASY! But some people who said that is was easy it was hard for them it was easy for me because im flexible enough for this challenge (so in the story we got to find out why but it might not happen in this story).

we got on to the fourth pose it was easy for some of us but all of us. When you fall of that horse you get back on that horse to for fill that destiny to do the impossible so make that destiny happen everyone was doing great in pose 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 they were very helpful to people who need to exercise more in life.

The last pose was the hardest number 12 everyone tried their best but they fail also it would never work until Miss Ashley helped us but manly the girls me and my best friend Reign we were going to show the whole class but Miss Ashley told us sit down. Also my favorite was the 8th one because it was very funny also it was fun too there are more poses that are my favorite but I think pose 8 is my only favorite one that I like.

One thing Leon did well was Making his story long for people to enjoy.

One thing Leon need to work on is Putting full stops in the right place.


Volcano is a big mountain and it can erupt and it is full of lava and magma also smoke. The top of the head is some call ash clouds and the volcano there is lots of crust under the volcano and magma is so powerful and strong also it’s magma is so hot it will melt anything in it’s way like humans and other things.

Volcanoes are openings in the Earth's surface. When they are active they can let ash, gas and hot magma escape in sometimes violent and spectacular eruptions.

Volcanoes are the most violent thing in the WORLD! If you get stuck in a volcano you may have to waste all your energy just to call out for help but if you have friends you will be lucky because they will be a great friend to you just to make sure you will be safe and stay alive.

Volcanoes can be safe at times because they are dormant or extinct but if the earth starts to shake that means the volcano you are on it may be active at times so make sure that you are safe around the volcano that you are on or around.
