Skiing On Sewage- Reading

For reading today. Our group has read an article about skiing on sewage. This article is about people turning sewage water into snow. Some people didn't agree with this idea. But I think this idea of filtering sewage water and transforming it into snow is a good idea because its recycling something and making it into something good.

Chinese New Year- Explanation

How Chinese New Year Is celebrated?

The famous Chinese New Year is celebrated around the world. It is celebrated with people cleaning their homes for the start of spring. People around the world put up red posters with poetic sentences on them and put them on their doors. Chinese New Year is also the time where friends and family meet up and enjoy their time together.

Near the end of the holiday people light lanterns and either let them fly in the sky or on let them float on top of water.  In the middle of the celebration people light fireworks and firecrackers. People often give unmarried people and kids red envelopes with money inside.

At night people eat their dinner packed with lots of delicious foods. They celebrate with some specific foods like Shrimp , Noodles and Egg Rolls. These three foods represent a long life,happiness and gold bars. Foods that are common when eating on chinese new year is fish,Wassabi,Kimchi, vegetables , rice and curry. Other cultures celebrate chinese new year because of the special events that happen.

The tradition is also about 12 animals. These animals competed in a race which the Jade emperor will chose its year for it to be celebrated. The recent year 2018 is the dog. Chinese New Year is celebrated because a dragon would arrive on the new moon and goes when the full moon comes up.

People celebrate Chinese New Year to remember the Chinese legend about the Mysterious beast who would visited the town and scared the people in the village… But a old man stumbled towards the village and told them about the beasts weakness. The colour red , loud noises and more. The beast then left on the full moon never to visit again.

We have started to write an explanation about the Chinese New Year. Nyjah and I have worked collaborative together to finish this task. I have learnt a lot about a structure of an explanation. We went into groups of four so we can check each others work. We had joined Savelina and Mele. They had checked for mistakes on our work. This really helped our explanation to be better then it was before.

Remembering our summer holiday

Remembering our summer holiday
L.I. - Writing to recount
Writing using language features to engage readers

Complete these sentences about an event over the summer holiday. Don’t tell us
what the event was just give us enough information that we can know for ourselves.

I wondered what it will be like if I touched the ice cold water
I wondered if it will rain once we get there
I heard the waves splashing towards the rocks
I heard the birds chirp along the seaside
I saw the waves crashing together
I felt the sand in between my toes
I felt nervous because the beach went deep really fast
A wave dashing on the shore

For our first day back. We started of with doing a writing recount. We had to choose and event that we did on the holidays. And mine was the beach. We had to fill out the sheet but. Cant say what your writing about. We had to try use a similar metaphor or any Langauge feature. To get a bonus points.
