The magician

T3 Week 4: The Magician
You will be working in a Tuakana/Tēina pair for this writing task and you will be working collaboratively to create an exciting piece of writing
Before you start: Make a copy of the file and save it in your tuhituhi folder. Name it “W4 The Magician” (then your initials)   
Here is the link to the padlet: The Magician - PadletThe Magician.png

Before you start think about these questions:
  • What mood do you think the magician is in?
  • Do you think he is a good or evil character?
  • If you could have magical powers, what would you choose to be able to do?
  • What do the words at the top of the picture say?
  • Who lives inside the house?

Key tasks:
  • You need to set the scene, what does it look, feel, smell like?
  • Describe the characters, who are they? Why are they there?
  • What is the action that is taking place in your writing?
  • At least 4 sentences must contain a “relative clause”.
  • Use the show not tell technique to create thoughtful writing.
  • Create suspense and tension as the magician carries out his plans.  
What does a relative clause do?
  1. It splits the main clause.
  2. The clause begins with ‘who’, ‘which’ or ‘with’.
  3. It must supply an extra bit of information to the sentence.
  4. Commas should surround the clause.
E.g. The magician, who had incredible powers, strode confidently across the marble floor.
WALT: To include relative clauses in my writing.

I will know I have done this when I have:
  • Used who, which or with in my writing
  • Used commas to separate my clause

Once this is completed you can publish it on your personal blog.

The magician

Hello my name is the magician. I do magic across the county. I have a good of magic show. I am a magician with an evil laugh  I am as wicked as a witch.

I am going to a magic competitions. It is  windy as a storm. I wear my best top hat my best coat and my best white t-shirt.  There were things floating in the air so that’s how I it was the competitions.After I was in the building. I sweat magic gorily because I was in the most popular competitions places you can do magic.

I was a bit scared of losing  because that would make my collection of  medals and I will have less of metals  

I have won every magic show I have been too.I have been to the fabulous magic show and the competition.

It was the big day it was the competition and many more.But this one was the weirdest one I have been to.

There was a pram in the air, a umbrella in the air, and much more in the air than you could imagine. I was just in time for my turn on the stage so I was nervous and stressed.I said to myself “I can do this and I won't give up”.

I was stressed and happy. The crowd was cheering for us “hip hip hura”. I was next on stage I was a bit nervous and happy the the person how call your name to go on stage he called my name. I felt like running but I said no to myself “no”.

What a great show I came first place. I was really excited that I  came first place because I  have never got 2nd place of 3rd place . It was the most beautiful thing ever because it was the most popular magic place ever.

whale fantasia


As I   swam out  to  cold icy water with my friends we swam around and had a look around the blue ocean . The  water was as bubbly as hot boiling water .

We got to a dark place it was as dark as  night time,   we saw a big   whale. The skin was as rough as concrete. We started to  swim around with the whale. The whale was as big as a giant.
 We saw a lot of fish,  some were small  and some were big.   The whale   started to do tricks  it was amazing    what the whale could do.   It  jumped up out of the water then  it  came back in the water.
Me and my friends    joined in and  started to do some tricks with him.

The splash was as loud  as an   elephant  walking  .

We started to swim some more  and  we saw a big shark  the  shark was as big as a  truck  .

We  swam as fast as we could because we were terrified  of the shark.   We  quickly swam into a   cave   the cave was as  dark as a black cat.

All of  that swimming made  me tired and hungry  so I went home and had some food and then went to bed.

but then the flash made me .

When I was sitting on my couch I saw a bright flash. It was  my mum’s car light’s.  She  had left them on  all night. BOOM!.  The light  went out,  it made me blind.  I couldn't see at all  I was  terrified . I told my mum that the car lights were on.   But I couldn’t see where she was   so   I didn’t   tell her she call me up stair and told  me to go   to bed. The next day I said to her “ last night   you left your car lights on and it was really bright. It made me blind.

Step 2
Describe your design
I.e. “I have chosen a blue Slalom K1 kayak with a blue base and a red outline. I have chosen to place 5 yellow stars at the front of my kayak and a large triangle at the back.”
I have  chosen a black slalom C2 with a blue outline and   a fist  and a hexagon and a small love heart .

Step 3
Describe who would buy your design
I.e. “I believe this kayak would be liked by teachers who want to get into kayaking. The paintjob is simple, but still pretty cool looking.”

My dad will buy my kayak because his  blue is his favorite colour . my mum will buy my kayak because  she like  flower and love hearts and they will take it down to the lakes.
