Eden's holiday

Eden’s holiday:)

Sitting in the hot sun I was so bored asking mum what to do. Thought the first few weeks I didn't do anything that much basically swimming more swimming ,and even more swimming. But when we got back from my dads mum said we are going to Pauanui. I was so excited. Driving on the way there I felt so sick so we had to stop every 30 mins-1h. When we got there I saw lots of camper vans and batches. Then we unpacked all our stuff and choose our bed and stuff like that. Then we saw the Taylor family. We stayed and chatted to them for a while and then went to the beach. the waves were so big and the rips were so hard to swim against but it was fun. One of the best thing about it was the beach was that Jamie McDowell was working there as a lifeguard. When we got back we all went down to fish and chip place and had dinner at the skate park on the paddock and also that the air force was practising and it was so cool.

As I was wake up I head Devon waking me up saying we are going to the beach and I was shocked but he actually joking with me . Through the day we went down to the estuary and there were tree swings it was fun. But when I was laying down on the towel a bee stung me and it was really sore.. Then after that we went back to the batch and put some ice on it. When the pain went away we went to the beach that made it feel a lot better. Then we ended up going to the beach again.

On the last day we packed up and got really to go to Rotorua for my touch tournament. We were sad that we had to leave but we get to go to Rotorua now. On our way to Rotorua I was so tired and felt not as sick as I would be. We finally got there and I ran into the pool it was so refreshing. After 30 mins I saw Brooke pill into the driveway I was excited that I had a friend in the same hotel. That night we all had dinner together, The Gordon family and the Rayner family as well. We had to go to bed because we have a big day tomorrow.

That day has finally come I was so nervous. That day has come we played 3 game. first we played and Waikato, Bay of plenty and Harbour. The second day we played Auckland and we lost all our games and came 5th.

Amelia - rhyming reasons


iphone !

The new device was coming 
in fact was already there
all the kids were running 
wanting to get their fare
begging all their parents
asking all their friends 
the new iphone took over 
right that day and then 

                         Crying  kids were coming 
                         from all the internet 
                          shops 
                         disappointed teenagers 
                         rummaging through their 
                         pockets 
                          using all their pocket 
                           money 
                           walking into town 
                          Although christmas 
                         was coming
                         in  less than a month 
                         or two
                       no one could be patient
                                             not even parents do 

                         but the excitement 
                         came again
                          just before it stopped 
                          I remember just 
                          last weekend  
                         when the iphone 2 
                         went into shops

Mathletics PROS




A few days ago, I came third in NZ for mathletics, and our class was 22nd in the world! ( Couldn't find the screen shot of when we were 14th )

A storm in spring - Brooke & Jani :)

As the sun comes up on a warm sunny day,
All the animals come out wanting to play.
As I wake up to see the flowers bloom 
I grab my sunhat and walk out the room.
When I see what has come across the land
A terrible thunder storm sounding like a marching band.

As I get the milk ready for the baby lamb,
She hears loud noises and starts to scram.
As I take her to her little pen I hear big thumps 
and realize it's angry men.
As I rush to the corner of my cosy house
I hear loud squeaks from a little mouse.

I tell her everything will be fine 
because when the storms over the sun will once 
again shine.
As the hours go past I wonder how long the storm will last.
So I decide to go to bed and when I wake up the storm was dead.
Once again the sun came out and all the baby flowers 
started to sprout.

So everybody lived happily ever after and once
again everybody shouted with laughter.



A Little Boys Summer - Victoria

This week I have been writing poems about the seasons and adding a twist. Since I finished my winter poem before the end of the week, I decided to do another. Here is my summer poem.

As the sun pushes back the dark mysterious clouds. It releases its warmth among the crowds. Soft Ice-cream melts in my mouth, Makes my taste buds, Tingle all over and out. No season can beat the warm sun rays. Nothing can make my love for summer go away. 

People are sunbathing on the beach, But one small boy cannot reach. Reach his togs, Oh so high. His biggest mistake to let it dry. He screamed and yelled, Trying to ask for help. But no one could hear his pitiful yelps.


*Boom* and *CRASH* from across the island. He see's the hot liquid and runs for high-land. Burning material goes up in flames. Scared people screaming out random names. James is worried for the sake of his family. He grows up in a minute, And becomes manly.

Hes about to do something no ones done before. Run into the volcano's hot liquid, While it hisses and roars. He see's a lady struggling to run, Heads to her and hears 

"Please find my son." 

As James furiously looks for the son. He searches through beach house's. Every single one. Not one had a little boy screaming for help. Only a boy standing, With a bleeding mouth. He runs to James all puzzled and sick. Asking 

"We gotta find my mum, We gotta be quick."

James picks up the boy and starts to carry. He asks in advance, 

"Are you ready?" 

The little boy nods and away they go. Running from the hot liquid, Still in flow.

The little boy says 

"Please stop there's my mum." 

James slows down and drops him on his 'bum'. The little boy jumps of his chair. He runs to his mum and says,

"This answers my prayer."

James walks to the ambulance truck. The lady walks to him and gives him a tug.

"Excuse me, Thanks for helping me out. My boy is now happy, No need to pout"

"Your welcome"

James says with a gigantic grin.

"We both gained scars and damaged our shins."

James looks back at the time he had had. He smiles and laughs 

"I was so mad!"

He realises it doesn't matter if your small, He wouldn't of fitted in the beach houses if he was tall. Therefore he saved the son, With very small height. He thinks about saving him every single night. Just because James could not reach his swimsuit. The angle it had was acute. But no James is proud he could not reach. Its better being small, Walking along a warm beach.
