Once there lived a girl named Angel. She lived in America, Mississippi. One day  while she was at school eating her lunch a diamond stone fell on  her foot. She didn’t know how it got to her or  what it was. So she think and think until she had an idea how to get to Mysterious stone back to the owner.

But all she knew was that this stone was a gift from the sky. She even asked her Dad what the stone as because he was a scientist. “Dad what do you think this stone is?” Angel asked. “It is a piece stone.” Said Angel’s dad.  Meanwhile Angel went around the country asking people if they

knew what the special stone was. Later on went she got to the last home there lived the wise old lady. Angel asked “ Hello my name is Angel, I just want to ask if  you know what this special stone I have been searching  and searching for someone who does  know what this stone is and what it does” Angel said as she gave the wise old lady the diamond stone.

“Yes I do know what this stone is, it is from the heavens. Every 10 years the dragons come every year and they drop down a gift for a little special someone. So the woman and Angel went to the dragons and went to give the gift back to the dragon. Angel went back home and she lived happily ever after. The End.

Fact and Opinion Activity

Fact and Opinion

Six of these statements are opinions about features of John’s life, not facts.  Place ticks beside the six opinions.
When John Rutherford was six years old he was sent to work in a cotton mill.
He ran away to sea as a cabin boy when he was ten.
Going to sea was the beginning of a hard and adventurous life.
The life of a cabin boy did not suit John at all.
Later, when he was older, he was forced to join the crew of a British warship.
During one of his voyages he fell ill and was left in Hawaii.
Life was boring and dull in Hawaii with nothing to do.
When the next ship docked, he joined it and sailed to New Zealand.
During the voyage to New Zealand the ship was caught in the worst storm ever seen in the Pacific.
When the ship anchored in New Zealand waters, some Maori came on board.
The captain was too afraid to try and stop them.
A fight broke out and John was taken prisoner by the Maori.
After his capture, John had his face tattooed.
The tattooing hurt a great deal, but he lay still and quiet to show how brave he was.
After a time, John’s Maori captors made him a chief.

Smart Learner

Being a smart learner includes concentration, listening to the teacher, using your virtues, obeying the rules, and lastly getting yourself  ready for the day. Sometimes it is hard for people to concentrate on their learning because sometimes interruptions come up. Using your virtues is normal in a year 5 classroom, it is like having patience when the teacher is with someone else you could do some other work while you wait.
