One sunny morning a boy named Johnathan woke up and got ready to go to camp.When he went onto the boat with his friends they got told that it was gonna be a 5-hour ferry ride so they went and slept.

When they arrived at the destination we walked to the building, as we were walking we heard a splash and then  Johnathan and his friends looked back and they saw nothing so they kept on walking and then all of a sudden they heard a splash again so they looked back again and there was nothing.

So they ran to the ocean and then they saw people splashing water at each other.Then they laughed and looked at each other so they ran and joined their class in the ocean.

Finally they all went to sleep because they were so exhausted because they did not have any sleep.

My Narrative Story.

Long ago in the mists of time there lived a little boy named Vinnie. He started a new school where his brother Maxwell went to.

They played with each other then one day a bully came up to them and took their lunch.They were so heartbroken that they did not have anything to eat so they went and told the teacher.So after school they walked home.
While they were walking home the exact same bully came up to them and said,”Why did you tell on the teacher”,they quickly replied “Because you took our lunch”.

Then they ran home crying to their parents but when they got there, their parents were not there. They looked everywhere but the problem was that wherever they go the bully follows them. They were so scared that they ran as fast as they could.They ran to the next door neighbour.

They shouted “HELP HELP HELP WE CAN'T FIND OUR PARENTS”.They quickly replied “Relax Relax they just went to the supermarket to do some shopping you can wait here if you want to”.They made s'mores and some hot chocolate and when their parents arrived they ran quickly and hugged them.

My Rap

I'm so rich I can afford houses and cars When I see Matariki I see shooting stars Have you ever looked up at the dark night sky And seen the seven stars shining way up high. The stars are in the shape of a fish It's a time of year to plan and wish Fly a kite way up high Learn about the land and learn about the sky It's time to celebrate and share some kai A hangi with the Whanau or a hearty mince pie

Soccer Tournament

Hooray!Today Room 10 had soccer practice with Ben.It started raining and we did not no what to do so we went to the hall and nobody was there so we walked back to the court and Ben was waiting for us.

When we arrived on the court Ben split us into 6 groups. I was put into Group 6 with Lisiate, Tama and June. The first group we competed against was Group 1. Their team was very skillful and very fast like lightning. When Ben blew the whistle it was loud as a bunch of monkeys, it was game over and Group 1 won by 5 to 0.We went to another court and competed against Group 4 and we won by 7-0.We learned how to control the ball a bit better from that game. We went onto the other court and competed against group 3 and this was our last game and we needed to improve our ball skills. We started and I shouted at Tama “Pass me the Ball”.

And Tama replied “ Hold on Malulu I’ve got to get past Douglas” and we all shouted and said “ Go for it Go for it”, and GOAL and it was right on time and Ben blew the whistle.We all gathered around and said thank you to Ben.

Ripper Rugby

Today Room 10 had a hysterical Ripper Rugby session with a guy called Hamish.First of all we went outside and lined up quietly and when we arrived onto the court we began by running 2 laps around the court then when we finished with our 2 laps we had to do 10 push-ups.

Firstly we lined up on the white line and we stretched.After that Hamish split us into 4 teams, Red, White, Blue and Yellow. My group was Siupeli, Danielle, Tama, Katalina and Me. The first team we were up against were Red. We started off pretty well.Hamish blew the whistle and away we went.Siupeli ran and tried to go to the try  line but then he got tagged and then he saw that I was open then he threw the pass and the ball went flying like a football ball and I leaped and I got a corner try. Then me and Siupeli finished off the game with 4 tries each.Our next opponent was blue.Tama caught the ball and ran for the try line and we were in front 4-2 and then we finished the game off by scoring another 2 tries and the full-time score was 6-2.Now our last match was against White.We needed to win this match to win the tournament.We started off perfectly with Tama and I scoring a try each then they came back strongly and finished the game off with the full-time score 7-2.

Now it was time for Hamish to announce which team won and which team lost.”White came 1st, Yellow came 2nd, Blue came 3rd and Red came last”.It was our last week so we said Thank you.

Rooms 7, 8 and 9 assembled into the hall quietly and sat down. Nurse Un explained to us how rheumatic fever can affect your heart. Nurse Un told us that two nurses and a community worker will come three days a week next term. At the end she gave us a consent form for us to take home to our parents to sign so they can have permission to check us if we are contagious. At the end we said thank you to Nurse Un and we went home.

Malulu Faaui and Douglas "SKUXX" Pua Persuasive Writing.

Rubbish Dumping

Are you scared you might get arrested for littering? In my neighbourhood people are dropping rubbish on the ground. I feel strongly that it should stop because it is going to look like a rubbish dump as well as polluting our community.  It is illegal to dump rubbish on any public or private land without permission. I believe that the police should have surveillance cameras everywhere and especially public areas.  I know that the people of New Zealand can put their own rubbish in the bin.

First of all, we need to show the world that we have a clean and healthy environment to live in and that will also attract more tourists where I feel that will definitely better our economics.

In addition, I believe that the police should have surveillance cameras everywhere. So we can catch the people who litters and give them a $500.00 dollar fine.

Furthermore, by law if you dump rubbish in public or on private land, the possible charge that the mayor could give you is $1000.00   But they still do it because they think that it is okay to dump rubbish anywhere and everywhere.

Finally, I can assure you that people can help each other to keep New Zealand clean.
I believe that the people of New Zealand can put their own rubbish in the bin.  Just imagine what it would be like to live in such a litter free country.  Everyone will live healthy and most of all will probably live longer.Please help me stamp out polluting our environment.
