My Narrative on Judith the old lady

The grumpy old lady
 Once long ago lived an old lady named Judith and she lived in Mangere. Judith was always grumpy, she never had any friends because people thought she was a meany. Everytime little kids stepped on her lawn she would run outside and tell them to get lost and don’t come back. She even scared the mailman. Judith didn’t have very good eye sight, she had to wear glasses. 

Judith lived in a small house. She didn’t mind because it was just her living inside her house. One day Judith won some tickets to go and see the Jgeeks perform live. She said to herself “Who are the Jgeeks ?”. “I guess I have to wait and see”. The next morning she woke up at 12:00am and got dressed. The concert started at 4:00pm. She had a car but it wasn’t flash.

 It was time to go she said “ Hopefully there is no noise at the dance performance”. She grabbed her car keys and hopped in her car. She was driving along the motorway. Suddenly her car broke down and there was a lot of traffic she cried “ What am I going to do?”. She was asking everybody if they could help “ HELP ME CAN, SOMEBODY HELP ME” but all people were doing were winding up their windows and ignoring her. 

Until an old couple said “ I will help you”. They were both very old. The old man and the old lady were 62. The man had some cables to try and make the car go. He tried and tried but it didn’t work until the car made a noise. The car was finally working. It was too late for her to go to the concert, so she said thank you to the old man and his wife. She went home and never talked about that moment again. Her moods after this experience with changed for the better. She decided to look at herself and her and own actions. Judith thought life was too short to be miserable and to be much more calmer towards others. She had become nice and she lived happily ever after.

My own Narrative by Caitlin

My Narrative Once long ago there were three girls. The girls names were Zoey, Claudia and Melanie. They always had fun together and they had exciting stories to tell each other. They were kiwis. One day Claudia and Melanie went for a holiday with their families. Melanie went to Australia and Claudia went to America. They were away for two weeks. That meant that Zoey was by herself. She didn’t like the feeling that she had no one to hang out with so she decided to take her dog out for a walk.The dog’s name was Jumbo. He was a big dog. Jumbo always liked going for walks because she liked running around in the fresh air. Melanie was having so much fun that she had so many stories in mind to tell Zoey and Claudia. She would always send postcards to Zoey telling her about what she was doing and what she had been up to. Claudia always sent postcards to Zoey so she was updated on what she was doing. Claudia and Melanie were feeling sad because they weren't hanging out together. Zoey's parents decided that they needed a holiday so they went to Australia. Zoey shouted “Yay we might see Melanie”. The next morning they got up early, got dressed and drove themselves to the airport. Their flight finally came, Zoey was so excited on the plane. She always looked out the window to see if they were near land. Zoey fell asleep on the plane. They arrived in Australia. They left the Airport to find their car that they had rented. They were driving through Australia to find their Hotel that they were staying in. Their Hotel was in the Gold Coast. It was very big but Zoey didn’t know that Melanie was in the Gold Coast. She staying at the same Hotel as her. Zoey and her family went to a theme park each day . A week had already passed and it was time to go home. She felt happy because Melanie and Claudia were coming back from their holiday but suddenly Zoey got a call from Melanie. Melanie said “My plane has broken down and we won’t be back. We might not make it back”. Zoey felt worried. It is a problem she thought. She didn’t know what to do she was panicking until she came up with an idea. She told the airport that she needed to save her friend. They asked a pilot to take the emergency helicopter. So she could find the plane and save all the passengers in it. She saw a plane that wasn’t flying and said “I think that is Melanie’s plane”. They flew down and tried to help them. Luckily they were just in time. They bought a little bit of gas to fill the plane. The plane started to fly again, everybody shouted “Yay we are saved”. They made it back to the airport successfully. Claudia just landed at the airport. She saw Zoey and Melanie. So she ran out of the plane and went to hug Zoey and Melanie. They all were happy that they were back where they belonged.They had lots of stories to tell each other and they lived happily ever after.

My Peer Assessment on Angel

This is my Peer Assessment that I did on Angel as you can see Angel has done really well. I had to check Angels Narrative to see if her narrative was alright with no mistakes. When I checked Angels narrative I saw that there were no mistakes. Angel and me checked each others narrative. I think that Angel has written a really good narrative. All that Angel needs to work on is describing what the characters look like and using a variety of language feautures and makin changes and proof reading and editing her writing.

My Narrative by Caitlin

This is my Narrative ckecklist. These are the things that I have been able to do with writing my Narative. The smiley faces mean the things that I have done and the straight faces are the things I need to work on. I have to work on where the story takes place, how the story begins and introuding my characters. I think that I could do better.
