Haiku Poems

In our writing unit we have been doing poetry. I have written 3 haiku poems, a haiku is a traditional form of Japanese poetry. Haiku poems consist of 3 lines. The first and last lines of a Haiku have 5 syllables and the middle line has 7 syllables. The lines rarely rhyme. And a syllables is the number of times that you hear the sound of a vowel is the number of syllables in a word. Here are my Haikus:




Lying on the sand

No clouds in the sky today

The waves are crashing.


Coaches are screaming

Shooting the balls in the hoops

Bouncing on the court.


Mum’s head is spinning

Food is flying everywhere

Everyone yelling.

A Place to Call Home….

Our Inquiry unit this term is called A Place to Call Home. This unit is about refugees and asylum seekers, I am really excited for this unit because I don’t know much about refugees or asylum seekers so I am happy to learn about this unit. I would like to learn more about refugees than asylum seekers because I would to know about their journey to the country that they are travelling to. I also have some questions about this unit:

If people have money to build detention centers, why can’t they build homes for Refugees and asylum seekers?

What is the difference between an asylum seeker and a refugee?

How long does the refugee’s and asylum seekers stay on a boat for?

Is there always accommodation for refugees and asylum seekers?

What happens when there is no food and water?

What are some of your questions?


My hopes and goals in Term 4….

It’s Term 4 and I can’t believe it. I had a good but a bit boring holiday, how was yours? My hopes in Term 4 is to actually do more Religion I feel like we don’t do a lot in the class so I would like to do more. I don’t have many hopes so these are my Literacy, Maths and Y.C.D.I goals. My literacy goal is to make my storyline in my narratives to make more sense to entertain my reader more and I am going to do that by planning out my story’s better when I have the opportunity to. My Math goal is to get better at my Fractions, Decimals and Percentages like what is 1.2 in fractions and percentages that kind of help is what I need, and I am going to do that by estimating what it might my first then actually working it out and check with Mrs Smith. And my You Can Do It goal is to always bring my homework book because I all forget so I need to be more organised and I am going to do that by letting my mum check that I have got it. I am excited to what Term 4  can bring.

What are your hopes and goals this term?
