My Narrative Poutini

In the middle of a stormy night a huge single taniwha named poutini slithered out of the river and headed to the pa. “ I am going to find Waitaki”Poutini thought with a smile.

Sleeping on the hard ground floor in the pa was a beautiful brown haired women named Waitaki. Then Poutini found waitaki sleeping in the pa and fled away with her. Waitaki thought “ I'm never going to see my husband again”.

Tamaahua who was Waitaki  husband woke from his sleep and saw Waitaki was gone. Tamaahua was big and strong man and he was very powerful. Tamaahua was terrified when he saw Waitaki was gone he thought that she was in danger.Then he saw Waitaki’s cloak trailing after her as she disappeared around a corner. Poutini realised that Tamaahua would not stop until he got his hands on Waitaki. So he ran to a river and Poutini turned Waitaki into green stone.
When Tamaahua found out what poutini had done he roared with rage. The trees swished and the river slowed down and the birds stopped tweeting. It was if a shadow was coming over the valley.

Tamaahua found another girl and Poutini lived in a small cottage and every night he would remember that day.

WALT: Create an information report without any help and being able to go back and make it better.
Title: Animals in the zoo

Macro sentence:There are many animals from all around the world you will find in a zoo.

Macro sentence:  All zoo animals live in different enclosures suited to them, so people can safely see them.

Link sentence:
Lions, Pandas and elephants are some of the animals you will find in a zoo.


Pandas are chubby and large. They love to sit and eat juicy bamboo. They are also very soft and cuddly.


(3 sentences from Description Bubble)
Lions are large, long big cats. They have fur that is very shaggy. They love to sleep in the sun.


(3 sentences from Description Bubble)
Elephants are very round and heavy. They live in their
enclosure. They have skin that is rough and grey. They can weigh up to 6,000 kg.

Conclusion (Re-state the important bits of information about this topic)

Lots of people go to zoos to get a look at all the different animals safely. If we didn't have zoo's people would have to travel a long way to see animals that are in different countries. Lots of animals are not easily accessible to see.
