Cross Country Fun Run.

On a hot bright scorchy sunny day at Pt England school we had cross country on the 22nd of August on Thursday 2013. At our school we were all put into teams and we were in our ages. The team that I was in was Takitumu which is yellow and I was running in the 11 years old girls. I have been in Takitumu ever since I was 5 and now I have grown up and I am 11 now. There was not much 11 year old girls or boys.

During lunchtime the whole school was getting into their house colours, and I got into my house colour and I went to play with my friend Mua and we played on the playground. Suddenly the bell rang so we all went back to class for a meeting about where we were running in case we will get lost. Our meeting finish and we lined up and went to the courts.

We all got into our team and our principal Mr Burt got everyone to sit down and listen. He started us off and then he gave it to Mrs ZA ZA and she was going to each house leaders and she got them to do there cheers that they had done for us. After the cheers we were all excited because it was cross country.

To start us off the 5 year old boys went first then it went down to the 10 year old girls and we were next. I went past my mum my little baby brother and my cousin. And they all were cheering for me. Going to the start line Mr Burt said “On your marks,” he screamed “Set!!,GO!!. I ran off with a great start and me and my BFF Mua we were running and we only took little breaks and we went to the finish line and I was so exhausted because it was a long and easy run.

As I got to the finish line I went to my mum for a drink and when I finished our whole team had to go back to class and go home at 3.00 clock. But....... I went home with my family and my mum was telling me that I did great. And I hugged her and went home. I kept on telling my mum did I do great did I do great! in the car how many`s time and she kept on saying I did good. I really had fun at cross country because it was cool and I had a fun day. And No Matter what .It does not mean if you come last as long as you finished. KEEP THAT IN MIND.

The Hare and The Tortoise.

This is a story  about the Hare and the Tortoise. The Hare was the fastest creature on the farm, so they called him speedy.Along with his 3 friends Badger,Fox and Rat, and some point there was a tortoise and the hare did not like the tortoise at all.The Hare kept teasing the tortoise.So suddenly out came the fox out of some hedgerows and told Hare if he could beat the Tortoise in a race. The fox explained if the tortoise wins they have to slave him for a month,and if the hare wins they have to slave him. So the next day they had their race and with a great start the hare was taking the lead,so the hare was looking back and the tortoise still hasn't  moved yet ,but the hare still ran.He was very tired so he had a nap under a shady tree and slept because the tortoise was taking too long. Finally the Hare woke up and he saw the sunset so he dashed off and saw he was nearly to the finish line.But the Tortoise already won.So the hare had to slave the tortoise.

The Moral Of The Story: Slow And Steady Always Wins The Race.

That Moral relates to my life because it tells me to Don't rush a race . And it tells me to don't rush to clean my room and don't rush to get something for my mum and dad.

Correct Punctuation.

This Morning my group Kiwis learned about using correct punctuation in a narrative. Instead of doing it with Mr Marks who is my literacy teacher we did it with Mr S.And here is a little movie that we made to use better punctuation. THANKS MR S. Now I know how to use correct punctuation.

Hansel And Gretel.

This is a story about a brother and a sister named Hansel and Gretel. They lived in a very small tiny cottage.Their mother and father always wanted to keep the children safe and they never let Hansel and Gretel out of their sights. Hansel and Gretel came across to a house that was made of candy and they started picking and eating candy from the house. Suddenly they heard the door open and they entered.The doors shut and there they saw a hideous looking ugly witch. She picked them up and chucked them into a cage and she got a hot steaming oven ready for the kids to be cooked.She got Gretel out of the cage and chained  her to the doorknob. When she went to get out Hansel,Gretel saw a key so she got the key and she unlocked herself and the witch looked at her . So then Hansel and Gretel chucked the witch into the oven.

The Moral Of The Story is ......... Don't ever leave home. Never, ever, EVER!! and remember your path, and calm down when you are around strangers. That means just because you come to a house full of candy and stuff does not mean you should eat candy from it you never know that they have put something in it.But I think that the children Hansel and Gretel were hungry.But just remember.

This story relates to my life because it tells me to don`t leave your home and do not leave your class and school.

Maths Problems

Here is a little maths problem that I solved by myself.And here is a little tiny movie of what I have been learning for the past 2 weeks.

Little Red Riding Hood

Once upon a time there lived a pretty girl named little red riding hood,she only lived with her mother in a very small little cottage.One day little red riding hood had got sent to go to grandma`s to take a basket of goodies because grandma was sick and she was not very well.”Little red riding hood take this basket of goodies to your grandma” said mum in a polite way,and LRRH kissed her mother and ran off skipping.

While skipping past trees and bushes little red riding hood took the wrong path.Little red riding hood saw a bush with strawberries on it,”HMMM, don't mind if I do” LRRH said as she is picking a lovely big strawberry.LRRH kept on coming back and forth popping strawberries in her be mouth.Suddenly she remembered of her mother,her promise,grandma`s basket full of goodies.”Oh what a terrible daughter i am” she said while skipping to try to give grandma`s special basket.

LRRH didn't know that she took the wrong path,and she heard a voice coming from a bush,BAAMM there she saw a big bad wolf.”Hello there pretty little girl” the wolf said while patting LRRH`S head “Well hello I'ma little red riding hood,how do you do” LRRH said as she was greeting the wolf.”I doing very fine thank,where are you going” the big bad evil wolf in a really deep voice.”Well I'm going to my grandma`s to give her this basket of goodies” said LRRH.And the the evil wolf dashed off to grandma`s house.

As the wolf got to grandma`s house he knocked on the door very hard.”Who is it” grandma said  “its me little red riding hood i have brought you a basket of goodies” the wolf said trying very very hard to keep his gruff voice. “can I come in” the wolf said opening the door.And Suddenly the wolf got grandma and eat her up.

And little red riding hood finally got to grandma`s house.”Knock Knock,grandma are you there’ little red riding hood said. “Yes come in” the wolf said pretending he`s grandma.”What a deep voice you have” LRRH said surprised “The better to greet you with” said the wolf,” Goodness me,what big eyes you have” said LRRH “The better to see you with darling” The wolf replied back.”And what big hands you have” Little red riding hood said while stepping onto the bed,”The better to hug you” the wolf replied “and what a big mouth you have” Little red riding hood said.”The better to EAT YOU” the wolf said jumping out of the bed. The wolf gobbled LRRH and he jumped in bed and had a sleep because his stomach was full of 2 humans.

In the meantime a hunter came through past the woods.The hunter was tyring to catch a wolf,but he could not find one.So he saw a small little cottage and he went to ask for a drink because he had been looking for a wolf and he was so executed. As the hunter was heading for the door hunter could hear a strange whistling sound coming from the cottage.So he went and peeked through the window and there he saw a large wolf laying in grandma`s bed with a full tummy.”The wolf,he can`t get away now”,he loaded his gun and pointed it straight to the wolf`s head.BANG the wolf was dead.”Got you now” the hunter said with happiness. Barged through the door and cut opened the wolf`s tummy and popped out grandma and LRRH. Mum busted through the door and hugged and kissed little red riding hood.”THANK YOU,THANK YOU SO MUCH” mum said how many times with glee.So LRRH said “we must always keep to the path and never stop.That way we can come to no harm”.

The Moral Of the Story
listen to you mum, stay on the right path and do not talk to strangers

The Hare And The Tortoise

Once upon a time there was a fine little fit Hare that was the fastest creature on the farm, well people called him SPEEDY,along with his 3 friends rat,badger and fox. At some point there was a tortoise too that had eaten lush grass slowly and kept on dozing off. But did you know that Hare only lost one race.

Well it all started on march when he took the silver medal,it only happened 1 time. Hare was looking at tortoise and called him cabbage head and Brussels sprout feet,so suddenly with  fright fox popped out of hedgerows.”Hey fox guess what I can beat everyone on this whole farm did you know that” Hare said “No I haven't but I have a challenge for you” fox said mischievously .

“OK give it to me I can take it, plus I am the fastest creature on this whole farm” hare said wanting to see what the challenge was. “Well I dare you to challenge tortoise in a race” fox said “Ha easy peasy I can just beat him just like that!! because of course he`s slow” the hare said while staring at the tortoise . “You think you know it all eh” hare said while stroking his fluffy ears.”Ok then If you win you, we get to do you favours” fox explained  “And if tortoise wins you guys have to be his slaves for a month”  foxy said to hare.

The next day badger said “ON YOUR MARKS, GET SET, GO!!”.Off with a great start hare was running as fast as he could so he had a little look back and there he was tortoise still flapping his arm and legs as he is running like a slow poke.As hare was not close to the finish line he had a nap under a nice shady tree with fruit on it.Hare woke up and he saw that  the sun was going down so he got up and dashed to the finish line and he got there,but the tortoise has already won. And that's all for today.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Slow and Steady always WINS the race.
