sharks peom

!Sharks!

Sharks are important
Cute and Cuddly - to some!
And they have a very good sense of smell
The are brilliant and loyal,
Protective and smart,
Their skin is smooth but tough.
Sharks are good natured,
They look like babies.
And are critically endangered!
They are beautiful and incredible,
They swim in the sea.

SHARKS ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My holiday recount.

Being a zookeeper for a day


“ Yay!” I screamed. The burning bright sun had risen. I had breakfast and waited for Ella and Theo. When they arrived we zoomed off in the car. The car eventually stopped and we walked through the zoo's grand entrance. My friends and I were going to do a holiday program called Zookeeper for a day! As the struck clock eleven, we walked through the gates to our headquarters. We all felt nervous.We were told we weren't allowed in before eleven because the cheetahs had gone for their morning walk.

In our headquarters, we got a black hat with our names on it. The first thing we did was go behind the scenes to the monkey cage I felt a little awkward when I looked around. First, we got our gear then we made our way to the spider monkey cage. We gave it a good scrub down. It was very dirty. When the monkeys came in we all cried! They made it look like a dump again!

As we walked back we sat down and had some morning tea while we watched the misty gray elephants. We shooed away chickens while we ate because they were trying to eat our food. Then we walked on a concrete path until we came to a sign that “staff only”. We made our way through. No Matter how hard we tried they would not tell where we were going, so that meant we felt excited. We walked into an enormous room with two pens on each side. A man greeted us and introduced us to the rhino. On one side was a storm cloud gray rhino. One by one we all got to pat him his skin felt tough but weirdly soft. After that we said goodbye and went back for lunch “we even touched a blue tongue lizard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”


After our awesome lunch, we went to tortoises. There we went in the cage and touched them we also got to count them. Then we went we went through the meerkat tunnels.  Then soon we soon went back to go to our headquarter's. “We were given a certificate and a USB stick with photos of our experience including one which I will blame the camera man for!”


Then it was time to go home. I would never forget that great day! I felt thrilled that I was a trained zookeeper.

Reflection I like how I used Agectives.

A Great Day

Since I have been in hospital for two whole weeks, I wasn't able to participate in the cross country. So on that very day all I did was watch. I watched all the age groups since I had nothing else to do. The ground was hard and rough.

I saw that all the age groups had a similar
Course, just with a little more distance to each one. Everyone was so loud that you couldn't  hear the red,loud horn down on the field. Silky soft flags were marking where each house group was. Loud,beats of music was playing out of black speakers as people ran. THEN they all finished. Finally we found our teachers and went back to class.
