Cross Country

Feeling anxious at the start line, unexpectedly the clappers went off. As we started to run we were clumped together, pushing and shoving. I was jogging and managed to catch up to my friends, Kingston and Waata. My legs we pumping and my heart was racing. I picked up the pace and took off from my friends. As we came into school ground's Mary slipped and I was able to beat her within seconds. Unfortunately I didn’t win but I gave it all my best and made sure that I didn’t stop.

Immersion Assembly

“I don’t want to go to school today! I want to stay home and play games.” I moaned. My mum said "School is good for you so you can learn."

Wow as soon as I got to school I didn’t know how to get around the school because there were builders working on our hall extension. I just followed my friends then the bell went so we had to go to class. First up we had to go to the Immersion Assembly.

Then... we found out what we are learning about this term. Our topic is called Mighty Mariners. It is about people who have made amazing sea journeys. 

I thought to myself cool costumes. Mr Burt our (principal) had heaps of t-shirts on and he wasn't hot at all. His t-shirts represented to all the different parts of his journey to America. 

My favorite team was team 4 because they had really funny costumes on like Erick the Red and Lief Erickson and a pirate.

My second favorite team was team 5 (five) because Jessica Watson (Miss T) was funny with her jokes and she had a hilarous Aussie accent..

Jesse Martin

Unexpectedly the wind started to howl. The wind was howling as Jesse Martin was grinding the winch. The strong violent wind weaseling really loudly. Unfortunately as the wind was howling it was so strong that he was walking unsteadily.

The Day Our Team Won And Thrashed The Opposition

One early Saturday morning I woke up and like usual I watch programs on my T.V in my room. Around about quarter to nine I got ready to go to my rugby club. On my way I picked up my friends Timo and Howard and we went to the clubs prepared to win or lose but either way we were ready to play. When we got there we practiced with our team before the game started. While we were practicing our teamate Howard got hurt because I was pulling his neck back. So... He started crying. No one knew that he was crying until all of the boys had gone back into their lines. I went to go and see what the matter was. He told me I had hurt his neck and I said that I was sorry and that I hadn't realised I was the one who hurt him. He forgave me and we went back into our lines and kept on practicing with our mates.

Suddenly it was time to play Marist and we went on the field but... The team that we were versing were short of four players. We kindly donated four of our players to make the teams even and the game Kicked off. We had to kick to the other team so I told the boys on my side to mark up and say who they are going to mark so we don't mark the same person. They lost the ball because they didnt lock it in there arm. I grabbed the ball and made a break though the gap. I sprinted towards the try line and slid and scored our team a try. I went on to score another three tries that game.

Marking our players is something our team can improve but for being the first game our team won we were all very excited and happy. Through cooperation we passed the ball well and were able to score a total of 17 tries to 2! We tried our hardest and we won, hopefully next time we verse Marist they will have a full team for us to challenge.
