For Today's Reading task the "Agnes" Group had to create a describe Map of a New character, Miggery Sow, from Movie and Book, 'The Tale Of Despereaux' by Kate DiCamillo. I worked with Ranya to make the Describe Map.
Reflection - I believe Ranya and I worked well together to Make the Describe Map. We added some quotes and evidence from the story. Next time we could add more facts from the story.
Walt - Create a Compare and Contrast map about Rats and Mice
After reading the book 'The Tale of Despereaux' 'The Agnes' Group made a Compare and Contrast Map about Rats and Mice. I worked with Sameera to create a Compare and Contrast Map.
Reflection - I believe Sameera and I did a good job Comparing Rats and Mice as we have given lots of Similarities and Differences. Next time we could've had a more broader Overall Statement.
For Writing Today we had to work with a partner and retell the Story with only a picture from the Movie.

Reflection - I believe Lujein and I worked well together and created a Good piece of Writing.

Glancing around I found myself looking at a peculiar shadow emerging from the nosy clouds. I was standing on an Aeroplane flying high in the sky. A creature started approaching me, out of nowhere their smooth skin covered with feathers of black, white and yellow bright colourations were blinding my eyes. Gracefully they made their way past my boat. “Err Err” the elegant creatures made this unique sound as they passed me in their evening suits. Stunned by their magnificent sounds I stood in shock. Adults and Babies passed by, flapping their arms gracefully like they were swimming in the Arctic Ocean. As the penguins cautiously passed by and disappeared into the abyss, something caught the corner of my eye. It was flapping continuously, trying to keep up with the others….
Great Job Samarah, excellent use of adjectives and verbs. You have also used a range of openers, well done! - Miss Richardson
