Hiwi the Kiwi

WALT: write a narrative including lessons learnt from Hiwi the Kiwi.
On a quiet,sunny Saturday morning in Washington D.C there was a boy named Terry. On this particular Saturday morning Terry was excited to go fishing with his Uncle Flex.

Once they had arrived at the wharf,Uncle Flex showed Terry how to put the bait on the rod,then they casted their rods out to sea. As Terry was waiting patiently he could feel something pulling him out to sea.That was when he saw a huge fish jumping up out of the sea .Just then Uncle Flex heard a ear piercing shriek  “UNCLE,help me” shouted Terry. Uncle Flex could see Terry was trying to pull a huge fish out of the sea.”On the count of Three” Uncle Flex commanded,”One,Two,Three,Pull” Terry said.

Uncle Flex and Terry pulled and pulled until they found a 3.5cm fish lying in front of them.”We should take it Uncle,help me lift it up?” Terry pleaded,but Uncle Flex didn’t want to help Terry. “We can’t take it,Terry!” said Uncle Flex gently,”why?” asked Terry that was still confused why they couldn't take the fish.”If the fish is big you never know if it’s pregnant and if we kill the babies,there won't be any fish left in the world” Uncle Flex explained.

That was when Terry thought about not having fish in the world so he decided to let go of the fish.”Good choice,Terry” said Uncle Flex putting his hand around his nephew. “One day Terry,one day” said Uncle Flex watching the fish jumping up and down through the sea happily.

One of the top football player is:Lionel Messi,he was considered the best football player on the planet over the last Eight years.

Did you know that the first basketball game was played with a Soccer ball?and over 1 billion people watch Football on their television every day.The first black person to play football was Arthur Wharton in the 1800’s and in 1978,Manchester United Manager,Sir Alex Ferguson got fired for swearing to a lady.The largest number of goals that’s being scored was 16 which was made by Stephan Stanis.

Holiday Highlight

WALT: write a recount about my school holiday  using effective paragraphs.
In the school holidays I got to go to Samoa for a family reunion with my mum and dad. Me and my mum departed at 4 o'clock on July the 12th and our plane would arrive at Samoa,Apia at 9 o’clock.

On the first week at Samoa we had a birthday party for my grandpa,Uli.This year he turned 60,and in the afternoon I got to the pool with my cousins.At my grandpa’s birthday party we got to eat chicken,sausage,salad,cake, and ice cream. Before I went to sleep me and my whole cousins got the opportunity to watch a movie.The movie that me and my cousins watched was The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl.

On the second week of the school holidays we held a party for the last day of our family reunion.The funniest thing that ever happened at the dance was when my cousin,Louise and her mum,Fatimah had a dance battle,it was hilarious! After a while the kids got the opportunity to make fireworks,the fireworks were so colorful it looked like a rainbow. When the dance finished the whole entire family was so sleepy that I fell asleep when my head touched the pillow.

The dreadful day come when I had to come back to New Zealand,I was so sad that our family reunion was finished but I was happy our next one was in 2019.One thing that I enjoyed most out of the family reunion was getting to spend time with my family.I can’t wait until it’s 2019.

Olympic HIstory

The 2008 Olympics were held in Beijing,China.It was the first time women could compete in boxing. Women from Brunei,Quatar and Saudi Arabia were allowed to participate.This was considered a big deal,because women in these countries are not equal with men.The games in China were one of the most expensive Olympics in history.
