This Term for Physical Education the Team 5 (year 7&8) have been trying their hardest to run around the Pt England Reserve. While we're running one of the teachers has to time us. As some people try their hardest some of the boys just want to come last.

When you finished the fun run you have to sit down and wait for the rest to come. The next day when you go for a run you have to try and beat your time (improve).  When some people run they sometimes drive me like crazy because they sprint in the beginning and they stop half way.

When I got down to the far soccer post I started to sprint because I didn’t want to come last with the boys. And when I entered through the finish line I sat down and I started to puff. When everyone finished the soccer girls got told to go soccer practise and I was one of them.

To me this story is like one of my best lately because this story look’s as if it’s true. I think this book is just right for me because the words are like completely average for me to understand.

AUTHOR: Annie Barrows and Sophie Blackall
Pages 22- 39

18th of May

When I read the part about Ivy trying to get Nancy’s attention it looks quite awkward because the words in the book look no where near like the picture. I think the main characters has tried their but picture and word’s just look different.

This story is just like my life because when I write on a doc and I add a picture it’s different. This story is kind of different to the book because the cover says Ivy and Bean but the story isn’t really about them.

Xtra Math

Yesterday was the most overwhelming day because when I logged into my Xtra Math's account I had to race the teacher, while I was racing the teacher I was getting distracted by my mate but I didn't really mind. When these hard questions came up on the screen I didn't know what to do. As question came up in the screen I counted as fast as I could before the teacher beats me.

When my race finished I looked at the screen and it said I got 107 questions right. As I was overwhelmed I told my mate to look at my screen so then she was like wow. After that I was trying to get my teacher but she wouldn't even want to come because she was to busy having her conversation with my classmates.

On Thursday the 7th of May Pt England students were in the hall waiting for a famous pop star singer. While we were listening to our Principal Mr Burt we saw a amazing guy walk into the hall. Do you know who it is? well the Pt England student didn't get to know until we saw him walk through the two door.

As that famous singer came in, the prefects lead him to his special seat where he could see every single person. When Mr Burt had finish talking he handed the microphone over to WILL.I.AM that famous pop star singer. When WILL.I.AM got the microphone he had said a speech about him self and as he finished his speech one person came out with a $100,000 dollars check so then the crowd clapped.

As he handed over that check the Pt England Kapa Haka students started to perform to WILL.I.AM and also the parents and students. While they were walking onto the stage the audience started to clap because they looked amazing and they made WILL.I.AM overwhelmed. When the Kapa Haka performed WILL.I.AM laughed and clapped at the same time.

Seeing the Kapa Haka performing was just amazing because they had mana and kaha in themselves. When they finished performing the Hip Hop students got onto the stage and we all can see that they had strength. When the music started WILL.I.AM gave them a big smile because the Hip Hop people were ready.
Finally the Hip Hop people started to dance with their strength. When their dance was finished we clapped for their amazing thing that they gave to WILL.I.AM and also the audience. As the Hip Hop people walked down the stage nearly everybody wanted them to dance again.

When assembly finished WILL.I.AM and some of the prefects took WILL.I.AM for a little walk to see what the classes has been upto so far. When he came into the street I got overwhelmed because I thought he will come in our class but he didn't. It was cool having a famous pop star singer like WILL.I.AM come and give us $100,000 dollars for the Manaiakani Education Trust.

8th of May

This story is based on four characters they are, Ivy, Bean, Nancy and Bean’s mum. One day they go shopping but this is Beans first time being bored in her whole tire life. So as Nancy was trying all those cool cloths Bean got sick of waiting for her so then she sat and watched her like she’s a statue.

Later in this story I got bored of reading. What made me boring? in the beginning of the story it was interesting but then it got boring because the level of the details went lower.

I kind of liked this book because it had a lot of details in the beginning but when I kept on reading the level of the details went lower.

What My Friends Say About Me!

Last Term on the last day Room 19 has decided one fantastic thing to do. That one fantastic thing was to get a scrap paper and a little piece of tape and stick it on our own backs. Soon when ever single person had a scrap paper and a piece of tape we all had to stand up and think about something POSITIVE and write it on everyone's back.

Once when I looked at my paper I saw one thing, it said I was funny but I didn't even believe it. As that one person said I am funny I thought it wasn't even true but at the same time, I was thinking that that one person was lieing but when I looked at my paper carefully a lot of people wrote I am funny I just believed it, just to be honest im never funny.

The second thing that I saw on my piece of paper, that one person wrote was I was an amazing Netball player. When that one person said that im good at Netball I just realised that im average. When I was looking at what that one person wrote I was thinking that it was quiet true.

On the third time I looked at my paper all I saw was "I have a funny laugh". As I saw it I just laughed and while I was laughing I just realised that what that person said about me is true. Next time when I laugh I hope it won't sound funny.

The last time I looked at my scrap paper it said that I was kind but sometimes im mean. "Oh no" I said to myself as I said oh no I was just felt bad but at least I knew it was true. When I knew it was true I just recognised that I was kind but then I went mean.

I felt so happy when I heared a lot of true things on my piece of paper. I really enjoyed our new exercise that our teacher taught us. I couldn't even write on their backs because it wasn't even strong enough.
