WINDY TAUPO

Wow this week has been windy!

Room 16 thought it was pretty cool, so went outside to really experience what it was like in the middle of the wind storm. Then we came back to the safety of the classroom and wrote about it.

At the moment we are learning to make our stories interesting to read by
1. Having a great first sentence to make the reader want to read more.
2. Using different starters throughout the story.
3. Using smart verbs.

Here are a few fantastic samples. Tell us what you think!

Wind!! By Luke M
OH NO its a windy day, branches are flying everywhere, it's like a hurricane. One nearly hit me (but sometimes it is fun, that cold blistering wind). It is like an ice shield. It is like a big puddle heading my way. I was running across the field and it felt like bullets were hitting me. Finally I was back to class.

The invisible army of wind - By Sean
Suddenly the door smashed closed from the roaring lot of crazy wind, zooming past like a tornado. This meant trouble! Suddenly my neighbours free feel over, the neighbour woke me up with his chainsaw. It was like a herd of elephants! I looked back up the road and what I saw was another tree falling over. Boom! Smash! That was the time the weather bomb struck Taupo.

Wind - By Seth
The invisible army was thrashing through the trees, they were going everywhere. One minute later i saw a huge tree split apart, I was scared that it was going to fall on us, Crash! Bang! Boom! I heard a tree fall on my backyard. I heard something like a ghost crawling under the door "woooo!" I looked out the window, it looked like tornado. Woosh! I saw a tree fall over. I said again "We need a woodman. I am serious."

Wind - By Jacob
On my way to school I nearly flew away and I could hear the wind and then I stopped. I saw the leaves flying everywhere and I started walking and the wind stopped, I got to school. The wind came, I ran to the classroom.

Wind - By TJ
Suddenly there a crash as the chairs smashed. The thunder was whistling past like a ghost shivering. The tornado howled through, the wind was like a streaking ball of ice pushing through the trees. The leaves were dancing in Taupo.

Wind - By Sophie L
Suddenly, Boom! Crash! Smash! Freezing wind was sneaking around me. Trees were jumping and frolicking. Wind whizzing angrily. It sounded like thunder rustling and howling. The wind was pulling me backwards to the ground. The wind was furious, branches and leaves dashing down. Then everything goes silent, except the wind fluttering loudly. It felt refreshing, hair my blowing, backwards. The leaves twirling down sneakily past me and then rushing back up again. That was when the weather bomb erupted.
