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.

I have  chosen a black slalom C2 with a blue outline and   a fist  and a hexagon and a small love heart .

One day I was on a mission to save  my six brother and their  princess brides.

It was my job to save them from an mean man  that was trying  to kill them.  I had a magic sword  that   was going to help me  save  them.

if I pointed the sword at people  it will kill them . I went through  a   dark  forest to  get  their .

My sword can help me fly to a dark  castle   where they  were  kept  so I went there  and because I was as small  as a thumb I could  squeeze through a  door without been seen

 When know one was around I would use my sword to make me grow bigger  so I could recuse  my six brother and their princess brides.    They have been   captured because they were trying to steal
His  golden diamond  so he  captured  them.
When I got there  they were  tied  round  a pole .
So I got my  bow n arrow  and shooted    it at   the man  to put him to sleep why I   went  into save them.  I cut the rope  and told them to hop on  my bird .

The man started to wake up   he look around he said  dame they have gone,  in an evil  voice .

So I quietly went around the  back of the castle without him    knowing  so I said quietly to my bird come here  so he did   and we went home  without him  looking at us.

I said’’ to my brother “why   were they   trying to   steal his  golden   diamond?”  My brother said “because   he  stole it from dad.”
