Today for our writing task students viewed Cosmosaurus. Then they had 15 minutes to write about impression had been left with them from the viewing. Some write a recount, some wrote in the first person.
They were asked to form a group of five where they each read their version of the movie and they had to work as a group to work out which person in their group had written it best.
Students came back to the front and watched the movie again. This time I gave them a list of things that they needed to have in their writing. -
dinosaur, extinction, continents separating and asteroid.
If the person they had chosen had those things in their writing then they came out to read to the class.
Our work chosen by each of the groups
One night a purple dinosaur looked up at the sky and sighed. The next day the dinosaur got out his tools and started to make a rocket ship.. While the dinosaur was hammering he hit his thumb. The dinosaur screamed loudly.
Finally the dinosaur finished his rocket ship an. hopped in and started the engine., The dinosaur went flying in to space. He saw an asteroid and screamed. The dinosaur banged the asteroid and the asteroid went flying into Earth and all the dinosaurs were extinct except for the purple dinosaurs. Emily
The Cosmosaurus is about a dinosaur who dreams about going to the moon. When he was building his rocket it kept falling apart. With a couple of attempts he finally made it start.
When he was on his way to the moon, he collided with an asteroid, The asteroid started hurtling towards Earth where it made a gigantic explosion., which caused one big island to form into our countries and their (the dinosaurs) extinction. Makenzie
Once there was a little dinosaur who watched the moon at night, dreaming about going there. Every day, he would work on a rocket that would hopefully send him to the moon.
After many failures, and lots of patching up with sticky tape, it was done. The dinosaur was so excited that he hopped straight in and WHOOSH off he went.
One his way up there, a big rock blocked his path. He screamed as his rocket smashed into the rock, that went down to Earth, as a meteor, killing everything and causing the Continental Drift. Silly Dinosaur! Hannah
