Since I am Yr 7 I must know where I put my capitals in my writing. This really helped me to improve and practice where I should be putting my capitals. Which will make me get better and better at my writing.

Two Day Wonder

Two Day Wonder

There is a clever contrast between the way the poet describes yesterday and today. List all the words that give you a feeling of being sick, sad, depressed or bored.
Dragged, silent, still, dragged, sulked, yawned and garbled.
Now list all the words that describe feeling well, happy, bright and active from the second verse.
Shine, dance, better, hurry, flying, clatter, swish and gallops .
The lines from each verse match up also. List five of the opposite images. This first one is done for you.
The street stretched silent - Cars swish, skateboards clatter.
Washing dropped on the line - Shirts, sheets, socks stream in the breeze.
Clouds dragged low and slow - Clouds hurry high and flying.

The dog sulked in his bucket - The do gallops around the house.

My bike lay on the drive - My bike waits by the garage.
The world yawned and grumbled - The world shines and dances.
This is called juxtaposition. Look this word up in the dictionary and copy the definition here.

The fact of two things being seen or placed close together with contrasting effect.

For reading my group had to each read a poem called "Two day wonder" after reading this poem I answered questions that my teacher Ms Kirkpatrick put on a document. I now know a new word called juxtaposition this word means when something is compered with something else that is the opposite.

Career-Flight Attendant

For inquiry we did careers for this topic we had to take a test on a website called Career quiz when you enter this website it will ask you questions about careers and at the end it will give you a list of careers that would fit for what you want. I took the quiz and it gave me more then 100 results and I picked a flight attendant because I love travelling the world and helping other people. This helped me to strive and to know what I want for future and I could learn what I have to learn so I can be a flight attendant. This DLO will show you how much money I would earn, Skills,knowledge and ability and also what I would do as a flight attendant.
