My animal poem

My animal poem
My animal is a tiger
Its fur is stripy like a zebra.
It moves like a person crawling across the floor
Its eyes have a serious stare to avoid predators
Its ears are medium sized
Its legs are strong like a tree
It sounds like roar!

This week for reading we read a book about Zoo babies and we made a poem about endangered animals.

My Zoo trip description

The Australia’s part of the zoo has enough rain water to make the pure grass green. Wrinkled turtles are grazing on dry, muddy grass dawdling across the dehydrated path. Pathways are full of dry mud with a revolting mud pool in sight. The lethargic turtles recline in the filthy puddle. There are small lovebirds soaring around their enclosure while they are chasing each other. Miniature Lovebirds are standing on a tree like a bird expecting someone to come.


Cheeky monkeys are swinging on a thick rope like they are on a mission to somewhere. They climb to the top of the tree to spy on cheeky monkeys.They climb up so fast so they can memorise the whole area. Monkeys are so cheeky that they could even sneak up on them without making a single sound.


As we were analyzing the magnificent zoo I asked Mrs Taege “Where is the kiwi’s hut?” Mrs Taege replied “We might go to that now before we go back to have our lunch.”
“All that walking made me exhausted.” I said
“Me too” said our group. We walked up hills and we walk down hills, after a while we started to dawdle up hills.







Last Friday we went to the zoo and we saw lots of animals.We used DAD to write a descriptive writing.I hope you enjoy it.

Wild Self

 




Bison horns - Your bison horns, unlike deer and elk antlers, are made of a substance similar to hair. They are also slow-growing and permanent. They grow in yearly "rings" which indicate age.

Spear-nosed bat ears - Hungry for a late-night snack? With spear-nosed bat ears, you can find food—even in the dark. Just listen for echos—they can lead you to a delicious insect.

Sand tiger shark teeth - Your smile is deadly. Your spiky sand tiger shark teeth are perfect for gripping fish and other slippery prey.

Nurse shark fins - You can use your nurse shark fins to rest in the shallow water during the day, so you're ready to hunt the sea floor at night. That means you're a nocturnal hunter.

Indian ornamental tarantula legs - Danger! Danger! The bright yellow markings on your Indian ornamental tarantula legs are a warning. They're meant to tell attackers to stay away. You're venomous!

Rodrigues bat wings - Your Rodrigues bat wings are very different from bird wings. Bird wings are made like human arm bones. But your bat wings are more like really long fingers. Creepy long fingers!

This week we have been learning adaptations. We make our wild self.

Beach Description


The pitch black hollow cove is sitting peacefully under the shade all day long. Green trees from smallest to largest are towering over the blazing,smooth sand. There are hungry seagulls that are looking carefully for some delicious food. There are little islands on the horizon. Angry waves are working all day long by crashing on the end of their track.

Fishy aromas of the shallow ocean is drifting off over the sea. The scent of stinky sunscreen takes away the luscious smell of fish and chips. Fresh air is flowing up my nose when I'm inhaling.

A strong,cold breeze blows against my face. While the abrasive sand blows up like a tornado. Persistent monster waves fights the sand and retreats when the other load of monster waves come. Warmth from the sun radiates off the monstrous rocks.

The beach is the best road trip ever! As soon as I arrive I am busting to play in the waves. Would you like to go to the beach?

This week we wrote a descriptive writing about the beach. I am proud of my descriptive words. Hope you go to the beach and enjoy!
