Typing Tutor

I've been working on have completed a F&J 20 words per minute certificate. Typing tutor has helped me write better but it's still very hard. When I write I can't seem to get my fingers on the right key sometimes and make a mistake, but I can just simply push backspace and done. I like to play on typing tutor in my free time or when I'm bored.

Rap with Mr. Umu'u

On Tuesday the 20th of September Mr. Umu'u came into my class and was my teacher for the day. When Mr. Umu'u came into my class he teachers about comprehension and what it's all about. When he came in on the day he also taught us a rap that he wanted us to remember. This rap took him 27 years to write it. The rap goes like this

Pack it up-Pack it in, let me begin.

Much respect to my peeps from Point England,

We in the cypher crowds twice the siza,

New MC’s spitting honey like stinging beez,

Brothers please spare a prayer for the families,

Hurricane to the crusaders down in Canterbury.

Pagi to the popo, the popo to the pagi

Fia ae lo’u manava, I think I’m lē masagi

Lava loa lea fia ae so se mea mmmm

Keke to the Pua’a, Pua’a to the keke

Thank you very much Point England Tu meke,

Tulou lava we must respect one another

My father my mother my sister and my brother

What do you think of this rap? do you like it?

Warriors VS The Wests Tigers

The Warriors and the Wests Tigers play NRL. They are playing in the quarter final to see who will make it to the semi final. If the Warriors win they will make it but if they loose then the Wests Tigers make it. I hope that the Warriors win and go to the semi final and win that game, hopefully winning the cup and been the champions of 2011 NRL.
The Vodafone Warriors is one of my favourite NRL teams. The vodafone Warriors are a NRL team that have played very well through out this year. During the quarter final while the Warriors play I will be supporting them all the way. The Warriors lost against the Brisbane Broncos and just made it to the quarter final because they are coming 6th on the leader board.
The Wests Tigers are one of the best NRL teams that play. They have won every one of there games this year, and if they were to lose the game they would have been out of the tournament. I’m not saying they won or they lost. Earlier during the games the Warriors versed the Wests Tigers and the Wests Tigers won.
When I saw The last try I saw that Krisnan Inu went for the try and the Video referee had to look at it. Then suddenly... The video referee said it was a TRY! I was so excited to see the Warriors win that game. The final score was 22- 20.
I am so happy to see the Warriors win and can’t wait to see their game against Melbourne Storms. I hope that the Warriors win the game and go to the Grand final versing the Manly sea eagle or the Brisbane broncos and win the Grand Final Winning the cup.

My Movie Dictation

This is the story of how I died, don’t worry this is actually a very fun story, and the truth is it isn’t even mine. This is a story of a girl named Rapunzel, and it starts with the sun, now once upon a time a single drop of sunlight fell from the heavens and from that small drop of sun, grew a magic golden flower. It had the ability to heal the sick and injured, oh you see that old women over there, you might wanna remember her she’s kinda important. Well centuries past, and a hop skip and a boat ride away, there grew a kingdom. The kingdom was ruled by a beloved king and queen, and the queen well she was about to have a baby. And she got sick, really sick, she was running out of time, and that’s when people usually start to look for a miracle. Or in this case, a magic golden,flower.
Nah I told you she’d be Important, ya see instead of sharing the suns gift, this women, mother Gothle horded it’s healing power and used it to keep herself young for 100’s of years, and all she had to do is sing a “special song.” Flower gleam and glow, let your power shine make the clock reverse bring back what once was mine”.
Alright you get the gist she sings to it she gets young creepy, right?
“We found it”
The magic of the golden flower, healed the Queen. A healthy baby girl, A princess was born with beautiful golden hair. (baby happy sound) (happy proud adoring chuckle) I’ll give you a hint, that’s Rapunzel to celebrate her birth the King and Queen launched, flying lantern in to the sky.
and for that one moment everything was perfect......... and then that moment ended.
“Flower gleam and glow let your power shine make the clock re” the old lady gasps
(a crying baby) Gothile broke into the castle and stole the child and just like that GONE! The kingdom searched and searched but could not find the princess, for deep within the forest in a hidden tower Gothile raised the child as her own.
take what has been lost that once was mine gothel has found her magic flower.
But this time she was determent to keep it hidden “why can’t I go outside?”
The outside world is a dangerous place filled with horrible selfish people you must stay here where your safe do you understand flower.
“Yes mummy”
But the walls of that tower could not hide everything....... each year on her birthday, the King and Queen released thousand of lantern into the sky. In hope that one day their lost
princess... would return..........

Do you know what the story behind the USA flag is? Well I’ll tell you... The story behind the national flag of the United States consists of thirteen equal horizontal stripes of red (top and bottom) paterns with white, with a blue rectangle in the top left. Also including fifty small, white, five-pointed stars alternating with rows of five stars. The fifty stars on the flag represents the 50 states and the 13 stripes represent the thirteen provinces that rebelled against the British monarchy and became the first states in the Union.

Aussie Rules

Do you know what Aussie rules is? Aussie rules is a sport that Australian people play. I’ve never heard of Aussie rules until the 1st of September 2011. Megan is the lady name who came to teach us. Aussie rules is when some one comes to teach you about the sport (AFL) Australian Football League.
The skills we learnt first was the drop punt. The skill was a kick. The name of the kick was drop punt (as you may know), it is similar to a drop kick but you don’t drop the ball and kick. The AFL rules for kicking is quite different to how New Zealanders would kick a ball. When we got a AFL ball the first thing Megan told us was that you had to keep the laces away from you and kick the ball. We went away with a buddy kicking each other, suddenly I heard a whistle been blown and saw some kids running to Megan. Then she taught us a new strategy to go with the first one. The strategy was not to have muddy toes, muddy toes means that you flick mud at your partner (not literally). So we went off in our pears and My partner De’vyne and I did really well.
This the first time I’ve ever heard of Aussie rules and It is awesome. I didn’t know that Aussie rules existed until about a week ago and it was a sport I’ve never played or learnt before in my life. I like my school because we have the opportunity to play a lot of different sports with the your friends and teachers. Learning Aussie rules is different for me because the sport has different rules to rugby and league.
My favourite part of Aussie rules is the part when we get to play with the balls and play with our partner. Also getting to throw a ball at our teachers and coaches at the end of the first session. You should try it out if you can because it is fun!
