Get Writing NZ

This week we have been working on our Get Writing NZ project. We had to complete a poem about ourselves on a postcard and then decorate each postcard in any way we like. We are sharing our writing with a class at Henderson Intermediate in Auckland. Another part of the package was to complete a sheet all about our class. Did you know that in Totara 2 19 people can roll their tongues (Miss Hines is one that can't!) and only 1 student can lick their own elbow?! Also the longest word we know is Raxacoricofallapatorius (thank you Mackenzie Hallberg!) We are really looking forward to receiving our package to learn about another school in New Zealand! #getnzwriting


  1. Kia Ora Totara 2! Its Me Ella Again. We also did this project! I really loved putting my If I poem on the post card. The only thing that we have different is that the back of ours is written in Maori.
    Na Ella.

  2. Kia ora Ella. That is a really cool idea to write it in maori! What did your class write on the back of yours? Do you know what school you are sending it to?
    It would be a really cool idea to post a photo on your blog of your poster.
    Bye for now Mackenzie T2
