Myth or legend Writing

WALT retell a Myth / legend from a country we are researching.

Myth or legend Writing

In a country called Morocco there lived a mythical woman called Aisha Kandisha. She is half goat, half beautiful woman and she has wings of a bat. She lives in the fields and marshes, she has powers of a god, and she bewitches men. She is a hero to her country but a villain to other countries because France tried to invade Morocco, but that didn't happen because Aisha kandisha looked into there eyes and controlled them, when they turned around, she killed them. More people began to arrive and they were stronger. So she tried harder soon they were all gone. Then Morocco celebrated her as she set off back to the fields and marshes.

Going To Wellington

I did a lot of things in the holidays. But there was one place that I loved the MOST it was Wellington. I was with my sisters, Mum and Dad. We were bored but in the distance I saw my friends Henro, Naney and Auntie was there to were running towards us. So we all went and gave them a big hug. Then we went inside theie house. When I went inside I saw Naco. I asked him " Why are you here early ?" And he said " because I came home yesterday ". Then we all ran around outside playing. We also played with their dog. After those games we played a game called powers. Its where you have 1 power and then you go hide. Then you try to find them. When you find someone you zap them with your power. Then they have to stay where they are for 30 seconds.If you had ice powers they would be frozen for 30 seconds. After playing powers we watched 3 movies. We also  had tea at their house. But after that we had to go back home. I was upseat but I knew we were coming back next week.
