Rio Rainforest

Rio RainforestJungle, Rainforest, Lines ...

WALT use adjectives and similes in our writing.
We know we have done this when:
  • We have painted a picture with our words.
  • Made the reader want to read on.
  • Used more than 4 similes.
  • Used lots of adjectives to make our writing more interesting.

Extra things that we need to keep an eye on…..
Capital letters and full stops.

Click on the URL below and rewatch the Rio Rainforest short clip.
You can rewind and stop and start as much as you need to. You need to describe the change you go through when changing from a creature to a human or a human to a creature, your choice.  

Think about the ability to move in certain ways, the sensation of having a tail etc.  Lines such as “Suddenly I could smell the scent of meat in the air, it hadn’t been there before.”,  “ I heard a noise in the grass in front of me, the sound of a mouse breathing etc.”

Go onto the padlet and brainstorm some ideas to help you. Padlet

            RIO RAINFOREST

I hear the crackling in the bushes  and the sound of thunder and lightning  the thunder and lightning are booming like a drum. I look over to the Rio Olympics I see the gymnasts  playing I see the best gymnast in the world  she has won a gold medal.I sit on top of the tallest tree in the forest and I hear the crowd cheering. I wonder what it would be like to be Simone Bile.The best of all gymnasts.She is only 19 years old.She has won 16 gold medals this year at the Rio Olympics but I will never become her because I’m a lazy old sloth.I still believe that I could be her if I train better and better . I start to train for my big game.I stretch my long muscle leg and twist my flexible wrists.Then I spin and spin my long stretchy arms they are as stretchy as a slinky. My first game is going to start. First  I am on bar, I pretend it is a bar but it really is a twisty vine the vine is as twisty as a dried apple skin.I do a full twist  into a spin I land my full twist and I win the silver medal I can't believe that I won a silver medal.

It's a dark cold night and I'm getting ready for my journey.I get into my old ,stinky shower and I wash my stinky old,hairy legs.I wash my old wrinkly face and my hair, wait I don't have any.Then I polish my holy wings.I wash my old chipped teeth.Now I’m off.  

I fly above the old rusty, orphanage down blow. I fly into a cold old cottage down below. I open the creaky old door it sounds like it's going to snap in half. I look at the address of the house and put it in my book of addresses and then I make my way in.

I see some little children that are having bad dreams. So I get started.I get my shiny, gold, smooth egg  and then I get over to my first child and she wants to be a ballet dancer so I get out a shiny golden egg and I crack it open.The golden egg tips  on top of the little ballet shoes, Now she is having good dreams.

Now let's go to the next person and he wanted to be a astronaut in space. Now let’s do all the rest of the children.There is only 1 kid left and there are 2 eggs left.  Then boom a boy kicked a egg off his bed and kicked it on to the shadow serpent. Oh no now the children are having bad dreams and the a little boy is in a bad sensuality. The shadow surpent is trying to eat him but then I cracked my last egg on a tree and it grew on top of the shadow serpent. Now I can go home.Swish I fly out of the orphanage as fast as a cheetah.I fly back to my lab and go to bed I can’t wait till I go to sleep.

                                                The Switch
I’m in a game I shoot, I score,  I run too fast and  I hit my head, I'm paralyzed my head is as sore as running into a pole.I wake up and I look in the shiny mirror it is as shiny as a diamond.I look at myself and I say is this actually my body or what? I have abs as big as  soccer balls.I look behind me there's walls as grey as the sky on a rainy day. My bed is as flash as a new bed that's been just bought.I run down the bumpy stairs.I get down the stairs and this beautiful lady gives me shiny gold keys for a car.I get to the big garage it is as big as a house.I see a flash car it is as shiny as gold but I'm confused because I can't drive. I turn on the car and I try to drive  but I press too hard on the ignition and I crashed the beautiful car but  I kept on driving to football practice.I got to the huge football field it was as big as a school.I saw all my mates practicing so I started to practice too it was only 1 day until the big game so I practised all night.It was the day and I was pumped up.I got to the stadium and it was 20min away until the game started .
The game was  going to start in 30sec.The game is starting.The ball goes in front of me and the other Cridon Renedo dives for the ball and then we donk our heads and we switch back to our same self.I helped the ball boy up and we kept on playing. I am glad I won my game.

Blood, A Drop Of, Red, Blob

I’m in a bush I’m lost I can't find a way back to the car. I can hear the crunchy leaves against my feet.  
I can see the wiry tree branches  up above me hanging to try and get me. I can see the flax moving in the wind trying to grab my feet.I hear a voice call out to me she  said “lalalalalalalalala I’m going to get you” in a slow voice likennabelle she had blood as red as a pukekos beak dripping down her face like water going down your throat.Then I see the path to the way out but I don't know what way to go so I go right and I start to run because she is chasing me then I see a gravestone when I was running someone died there  then I started to get really scared.Then I see a broken chair it is in bits and pieces they were as broken as glass.Then I see beautiful white swans they are as white as the clouds in the sky.I turn around then I see a locked up gate now I'm trapped where am I going to go why is that gate locked.Is there something over there like a masion to pretect  it.That lady is still trying to get me.So I jumped the swamp and started running then I ran on the grass and the lady starts to get puffed.Then I jumped the swamp again and I started to run I follow the path the other way. Then I see my car I am relieved that I found my family.I can wait to get home to my bed.Im home and it is 7:30 pm and Im tierd I hope I dont have any nightmare.I wake up and Im fin Im glad that that is over and done with.
