We have been learning to add powerful verbs and adjectives to our writing to make it shine. Here are some gems from this week.
I was so tired I could hardly move. I spotted the trees swishing in the air back and forth. When I gotto the top of the mountain I was exhausted. I heard birds chirping it sounded wonderful. The fresh green grass was as soft as a pillow. The mountain was bumpy like a hippopotamus back. I fell on the soft fresh green grass. We listened to uncle Hone tell us Maori stories. Then I ate my lunch yummy lunch.

Wow! I ran up the hill a little bit. I found a cow horn, I put it in my bag. I kept on walking up the hill. There was a brown gate I climbed over the gate. It is a long way, I said to myself. Then there was another gate, then another gate, one more then we were there. Next we were so high up I could almost see the whole world. From here it was a long way down. We walked up the last bit of the mountain.
“WOW!” That is the biggest rocky mountain I have even seen in my life. Bang bang! I hopped off the rusty old bus. We lined up like clever dogs standing up. After that we started to climb. Heave ho! I climbed the green pathway.It got steeper every minute. Louisa and Sara had to hold onto my hand. Finally we reached the tippy top of the mountain. When we got to the top of the rocky mountain it had lush green grass. l could see the other children and the black and white cows. “Wow!” I could see the glistening blue water in the lake. After that we raced down the rocky mountain like cheetahs chasing mice.
The bus sped across the bumpy metal road. When the bus stopped at the green grassy mountain Sam and I raced up the high mountain. Sam and I saw the little kids and we saw the teachers too.
Wow! The bus screeched to a stop it was dusty on the gravel. When we got to the steep mountain we walked up the mountain. There were black cows and white and brown cows. I puffed up the hill, it was like an adventure. It was bendy, it made me feel dry so I had a drink then we kept walking.
