My Artwork & Narrative

As you can see I have created a artwork for extension. I also wrote a narrative to go with it. Here is my narrative.

                                      My Warrior Narrative.

There was once a beautiful young princess warrior called Siale who lived in a village in the Pacific. Even though she was a princess, she would always protect her village from danger. She was so brave that she would even fight people who were much larger and stronger. Her best features were her loyalty and strength. Siale lived in a beautiful village that was isolated from other villages. It was located near the sea so that the villagers could easily collect and catch food.
One day Siale was talking to her siblings when suddenly out of the blue she had a strange feeling. She dashed to her fale telling her family ‘‘I have a really a strange feeling that something is about to happen’’. Next she told the guards to go to the look out. Afterwards they thought that they had seen nothing, but then they had another look and they saw what they thought were their worst enemies coming towards them.
The guards quickly called out for help and everyone was worried.  Siale's mouth felt dry and her hands became sweaty as soon as she saw her worst enemies entering her village. Terrified, she had nothing to say or do, except face them.  The guards and men from the village were ready to fight.

Everyone stood still waiting for the battle to begin. Then a powerful looking warrior came to the front. Siale looked in shock as she realised that it was her long lost brother. They were going to have a battle but they didn’t. Instead they just shook hands and then hugged. Siale couldn’t believe what had just happened. Now it was time for the village to celebrate.

My Paul Martin Work

Guess What? Well on Wednesday the 22nd of June someone Famous came to our school. But Instead he came to Team 4, his name is Paul Martin. He use to play for the chiefs but then he retired and now he’s creates books. His first book was called The Adventures of Cory the flight of the kiwi, he write this book when he was in france well playing rugby.

At first we had a Team assembly. In the Middle of our Team assembly Paul Martin walked into our class. My Mouth was dry as soon as he walked in I was filled with excitement and inspiration as he was talking. Next I had to say a speech to him based on the words like,we hope you feel welcomed and you are treated with respect on the day and you come back soon.

During the time he was here, he taught me that whenever you want to draw and you don’t know what to draw, before you start it is a good idea to write down ideas so you have an rough idea of what to draw.Then nearly coming toward lunchtime he grabbed a couple of kids and he was sketching kory the kiwi. First he did it lightly and then he was making look realistic. He inspired me about how to draw.

I would like to say a big Thankyou to Paul Martin for coming in and spending time with the team 4 block.He inspired children that day to be confident when you draw.

We had Paul Martin come in and give us tips about drawing. Walt: write a recount
Walt: clearly communicate our ideas and use personal voice in our writing
