My two Fish and Snail

I have two Fish named Shiver and Spike. It's pretty cool because they both have s,i and e.
Shiver is a girl and Spike is a boy. In the fish tank there is also a water snail named slimy. He eats mould which grows in the fish tank. When the sun comes it makes the mould slowly stick to the fish tank and then the snail comes and eat it all up.

my 1# story

The other day I finished a cool book called, Fantastic Mr. Fox and I would like to share it with you. Well it all started with 3 farmers and Mr Fox. He would steal all the animals. After a while the farmers started digging them out but it did not work, so then they got 108 men, surrounded Mr Fox's hole, but Mr Fox dug tunnels under ground. And the really funny thing is that the farmers are still waiting.

My Annoying Sisters

Hi. It's Willow and right now I am going to talk about my very very annoying sisters. Now talking about my sisters well even all my friends think there annoying but the person that thinks there most annoying is me. If I had to think of a word to explain my sisters I would say that they were evil. Which is a very good word to explain my very very annoying sisters. Now we're going to talk about the most annoying one she is 5 years old. She is the most annoying because she cries all the time and she never lets me do what I want to do. But deep down I really do love them. It's hard being a big sister....on second thought...at least they're not brothers !

My Sunday

On Sunday I went to Rainbow's End. When we got there it was so busy it was like half of the country there. On my first ride I went on the pirate ship and after that I felt really sick. On the next ride I went on the logfloom. It was a bit scary but at the end it was so fun going down the slide and on my last bit we went to get some food.

My Last League Game

On Saturday I played my second to last game we were versing Waitemata. They were the toughest team ever. In the first half my cousin named Kobe had the first run. He was running hard but he got tackled then it was my run. I ran up and stepped. I was run really fast so no one could catch me. Our Ponsonby supporters were shouting "go go go!" Then I was going to jump. I did! The ref blew his whistle. It was a try. The Ref blew his whistle twice - that means half time. The second half was tough. They didn't get any tries. In the last half it was 8 - 2. I scored the last two tries. It was ten to three. End of the game. We won and everyone got player of the day so we got a chocolate each.

We went done on a toboggan. it was really cool even though it left me boiling!

Choir and Ukulele

Every Wednesday I go to ukulele . In ukulele we learn different cords like E,G7 and F. My favourite song that we have learned is, " He's got the whole world" because it is quite easy and it's only got two chord's. There are lots of children doing ukulele and there are four teacher's. Every Thursday I go to choir. In choir we sing "choo choo cha bogie , Sweet Barefooted Dreamer's, Bad and Beat it! Singing in choir is awesome! There are quite a lot of children in the choir but I don't think as much as ukulele .

All blacks vs South Africa.

Out in New Zealand at Eden park the All blacks played South Africa in the Tri nations.
The stadium was filled with 100,00 All black supporters and about 100 South African supporters .
Me, my mum and brother went. I got an american hot dog and chips with a sprite. Yum yum.

Brrrrrrrrr - the whistle began Daniel Carter kicked off and they chased the ball like charging bulls.
All of the fowards in South Africa tried to catch the ball and and they dived for it.
Januire passed the ball out to the first five and kicked the ball and Cory Jane caught the ball and passed to Mils Muliaina and then to Dan Carter and he kicked it back.
15 minutes later Ma'a Nonu scored a try and the All Black's were in the lead.
After they scored again and then South Africa scored and then they got a drop kick.

80 minutes gone and the All Blacks win 17-14.

Have you seen a Kakapo?

Have you seen a kakapo? Of course you haven't because they live on islands and is a flightless bird. They have colours like the bush so you don't really see them. They have colours like the bush so they can hide and catch their food. So if you go to one of the island that has a kakapo, look carefully in case you see one.

my soccer game

On Saturday I had my soccer game. Me and my friends at soccer lined up we got the teams. I was in all of my friends teams and some boys I didn't know. When we started I was guarding the goal and in the other half I got 5 goals because the goal keeper is easy. Even my friends got 3 goals. When the game was almost over a really hard goal keeper came when ever one of the best players in team tried to shoot. He just saved it. Finally it was the last half. I was puffed out but I still had one more chance left. I ran down the field with the ball. I shot the ball and I got a goal. After every game I go home and watch TV.

My pet tuxedo

I have a dog called Tuxedo He is two years old but in dog years he's fourteen. Tuxedo is a spoodle. It's a type of dog crossed between a spaniel and a poodle . My family and I bought Tuxedo when he was twelve months old. Tuxedo was the only dog that we were allowed to take because the rest of the dog's were under age to take.Out of all the dog's Tuxes was the maturest dog because all he really did was walk around the little place and sit on my mum's lap. One of the thing's that he did to show off but instead of showing off he did this, Tuxedo thought that we would buy him if he could do a cool trick so he looked around Next he finds a bucket of water so he ran and jumped but he didn't jump far enough so SPLASH!!! - water went everywhere!. Tuxedo is the best pet for me and if you ever meet him you will know.


My Narative

In room 13 we are writing narratives. Mine is about 2 video games beating each other up. For my orientation I wrote that a general was walking to his tent when a square ninja jumped from a tree holding another general and knocked out the other one general with knock out gas. In another dimension were red and blue blocks raining.They were used to build weapons tanks and all that kind of stuff. Once I finish my narrative I will publish it so you can read the whole story.

In the first half the score was 20 - 0. In the second half my friend named Zen kicked the ball of to Marist. A Marist player ran and then I ran up and tackled him. They replayed the ball I ran up and spear tackled him. He got injured then it became a turn over. It was my run. I ran to the midle then stepped him then I RAN STRAIGHT AND JUMPED AND LANDED.

On Saturday at 1.30pm at the church hall near school, I do Bollywood. I do Bollywood every Saturday. In Bollywood you have to keep in time to a beat like 1,2,3,4. Every time a beat goes you do actions to the music . It is very fun. It started last term. Anisah, from my class, started on the 31st July. Anisah is 1 of my friends that j ust came on 1 of the last practises. Lots of people were there like Madeline in Year 3, Zara, Lola and Anisah. we do lots of cool and interesting moves. Bollywood is interesting you should do it. Your mums and dads will like watching.
