Today, Monday 7th November we shared about our Guy Fawkes experiences. We used a lot of descriptive words to tell each other about what we had seen, heard and done!
In our three groups we had a discussion time. Then we started our story writing. Mrs O’Grady’s group worked on their oral story writing by writing collaboratively. Some of our able writers help scribe for the newer students.
Here are some of the stories:
By Joseph, Andrew and Hine
I saw some fireworks going BOOM! I had a fantastic time looking at the fireworks. My Dad held the fireworks and then it went into the sky. My fireworks went BOOM!
By Alvaro, Beldon and Sandiana
On the weekend I saw some fireworks. On the weekend I made some fireworks. On the weekend I loved the fireworks.
By Nirvana, Cooper and Mikha’el
When it was Guy Fawkes Day all of the people did fireworks, and they were blue fireworks. I saw Cat By fireworks and Star Wars fireworks and rockets.
Fisaiah, Mary, Kellan and Kaidan
The fireworks were loud and they were fast, going up in the air. We saw pretty fireworks and they were beautiful. They were noisy and we heard BOOM! Clatter! Clatter! Whoosh! Whee! and Phish!
Other children wrote their own stories independently:
Sione – The Fireworks – At Sapa’s house it was cool! I had a sparkler. I wrote my name. The fireworks went BBBBoom! It made a dragon, a big one. It was green.
Amelia – On Saturday night saw lots of fireworks. There were big ones and little ones. I saw lots of colours, there was yellow, pink, orange and blue. It zoomed up into the sky! I did sparklers too and drew my name and my last name! My Mum lit them and she kept me safe too. It made a bang noise and I had to cover my ears. I think it was 8 o’clock. It was dark at night.
Starla – I enjoyed the fireworks. It was awesome. I was happy there. We lighted them with candles. it is funny. It was very exciting. I held some sparklers.
Adrienne – The fireworks are noisy. I covered my ears. It was great. My Mum didn’t want me to get hurt. I was at my Nana’s house. I saw the fabulous colours of the fireworks. It is green or yellow too. Or orange too. The fireworks are big or little and the firework’s noise is boom, boom, boom!
Lachlan – I look up at the fireworks. They were scary.
Pax – Fireworks are noisy and my brother was screaming like a girl! The fireworks colour was green. I nearly exploded my head off!
Kristina – I like fireworks. They make me happy. It goes kaboom! I like the golden fireworks.
Maryla – The firework went up and then it was a ball of light. Next it split into pieces and it went down and then there was nothing there. It was gone! The fireworks scared me! I was frightened, at night when the fireworks went bang!
Kayce – I saw fireworks and my dad lit fireworks. We did smoke bombs and Dad lit some more and my next door neighbour did loud ones, so I ran inside!
Vanzin – The fireworks were very very nice. And we did little fireworks and we did big fireworks. One firework was shaped like an eagle and it was beautiful and it was nice. I wrote my name with a sparkler and made a shape, a round shape. Some fireworks went zoom, it was good, but just one time it frightened me. It was exciting and I liked the fireworks.
Tallyn – I like the fireworks and I saw the shape of it. The fireworks were big and little. And me and you saw all the fireworks. They were sparklers. Some were loud and I was brave. And my brother and sister were brave.
