WALT- use new vocabulary in our writing to make it more interesting
surreal unbelievable gooey drenched
taste buds smothered
Imagine you have just walked into Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.
What can you see?delicious striped candy canes and sweet tasting lollipops
What can you smell?scrumptious chocolate melting
What can you hear?extraordinary umpa lumpas
What can you taste? (Or what WILL you taste?) taste explosion popping candy in my mouth
- try and use as many of the Hot Spot words as possible
- paint a picture for your reader. Take them on a journey with your words
I walked into the factory and the whole thing seemed surreal. I couldn’t believe what I could see……… chocolate rivers and waterfalls and umpa lumpas were singing while doing their job the bushes are mints the walk paths are peppermint candy canes are snorkels. Trees grow giant lollipops with lemonade and bridges have goody goody gumdrops on them the computers are black licorice mushrooms are bouncy like trampoline they taste like candyfloss stones and rocks taste like popping candy in your mouths.

I have a great Grandfather called Noema Taunoa who served in World War II.He died at the age of 84,1 month before I was born.He served in the 28th Maori Battalion where he stayed till the end of the war.
He was born July 27th 1920 he had 3 brothers who also went to war now I am going to tell you a story
Once more we moved out at night for a rest,delaying our departure by roughly checking the regularity of the fixed spandau (german machine gun) burst flying over the top of us,along the mad mile. Our reports back to our battalion helped the 5th Brigade intelligence to appreciate the stubborn situation and resistance in cassino. For safety sake, again we moved in to cassino just before day-break to occupy and hold remnants of houses which partly escaped the bombing. Again, through consistent metal flying around, a few of 16,17 & 18 platoons of D. Company converged on the nearest cover at hand, just one room left at ground level while all around it, and the stories above, were demolished by bombs. We did not have to wait long when the dreaded 88 on a jerry tank opened up on the facing the enemy. There was swift scatter for very scant cover as the mentioned wall began to expose the blue sky, leaving only Tilly Whaanga,brother Cleo and myself in the middle of the room. In ny case,unaccustomed lips tried to shape words, so reminiscent of most puny mortals when trapped, and searchers for spiritual aid whether they qualify or not. yet, at the mercy of only one more shell, which would have wiped out about 25 of us, the tank stopped and moved away and again mere man would call it a co-incidence,but not so in my case. I hurriedly made the boys disperse and report back to their own place platoons, while I made my boys look for better cover and dig in. I even helped my batman (Joe Taunoa) to enemy. I felt a tug on my back and asked my batman to investigate and so he took out my mess-tin and there clean through even my bully-beef tin and biscuits inside the mess-tin was a hole made by a sniper. We doubled our efforts and were about to jump into our trench to safety when I again felt a tug, but this time in front of me. To my amazement and relief, in one of the front pouches of my web was a hand-grenade in two pieces. I wasn't going to give that sniper satisfaction as I dived under cover because I may not be so lucky the third time. After pulling out some time later I would retell the incident to the other officers but thev would not believe it until I showed them the evidence and even then how did I really survive that hand grenade.

It was fun for a little while then It got colder and colder nearly everyone got out. I got out on the event when we had to run in the water first event we had to walk with an egg on a wooden spoon. The egg was made out of wood to we had to go to the middle and walk in a circle then change hands and pass to the next person on the other side on your team. Second event we had to push the soccer ball till we got to the middle we had make the ball go in circles again when some of us were freezing on the the side of the pool next event Mr Ford told us we had to do a belly flop and we got a flutter board and kicked our way to the other side the person who Is last they have to put the color cone on their head and hold the flutter head above there head in the water the second to last event was you had to carry a baton underneath your neck you got to hold It with your chin and when you get to the other side the person that's in the line the next event is running as fast as you can to the other side.
