Reflection about Term 3

Introduction -
Becoming a year 8 is going to be harder than I thought because the teacher are all going to be depending on us to be good role models for next year. What I liked about this year was how Mrs Tele’a would always put us on Re - think for coming late to school, not bring your P.E tops and being bad in class.

Highlights / Memories  -
My favorite highlights for this term would be about learning Te Reo, playing sports  
And learning in class. Some memories that I remembered about this term would be how we had cross country which I came 4th in, fitness everyday and the rotations when the year 8 go to tech.                    

Funny moments -  
My funny moments for term 3 would be about how Mrs Tele’a would always tell us jokes in class. Also when cameo tried to kick the soccer ball but instead she did the splits   

Goals for next term -  
My goals for next term would be to write more better stories and use different words, solve my work out using my knowledge and to also read more books at home. My goal for next term would also be finish it off properly.

Hiwi the kiwi

Mark the founder of Hiwi the Kiwi, came to Pt england school with his lovely wife Chrissy. They were explaining about how we need to keep our birds safe and we need to be water safety. Hiwi the kiwi announced that they would be teaching us why we need to keep our areas clean.

Hiwi the Kiwi was entertaining and inspiring us about wearing life jacket around water. He also sang us a song about saving our fish and feeding our families.Mark and Chrissy have been married for 40 years and have a great relationship.They sing a lot of songs when they visit school around New Zealand.

Mark told us to keep our birds safe by not littering and pick up rubbish even if it’s not your’s. A can or a plastic bag can end up killing five hundred birds and fish every year. Sea birds don’t really care about what’s in the sea they just fly down and think it’s fish. When you go fishing you always need to take like a water gun to scare the birds away.When the birds dive down when you are fishing they want to try and take the fish away but they don’t know that the hook is in the fish.

When mark told us about some of the stories like about how two men tried to think they were all that but actually were scared, I was really hooked into this one he said ‘’ to always wear life jacket when you are in the water or fishing’’.   

I really enjoyed this show because it has taught me heaps of things that I don’t know and maybe I can go fishing in the future with my family.

Narrtive writing

This is my Olympic narrative writing that I have been working on. You can read my story above or underneath. My narrative writing is about Usian Bolt, but in my story his name is Bolt. 

It was the 2016 Olympics which was held in Rio. In the Maracana stadium, before the women's  pole vault had just started the men’s 100m final race was next.

There were 8 competitors battling for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. When they said ‘’ the race is starting in 25 minutes’’ he was really nervous.He said to himself ‘’ I have trained for this day don’t give up yet’’ said Bolt. Everybody to the starting line.

As he walked to the starting line Bolt got more nervous and didn’t want to do this anymore. Something came to his head. He was thinking about how he knew that he wasn’t going to come first but still tried his best. Also his family would be so proud of him.

When he crossed the finish line he felt more better just after knowing he tired and didn’t want to give up. When he heard that he came 4th, he was so sad but happy that he did his best. But he heard over the speaker that one of the competitors was disqualified because USA Trayvon Bromell went before all the others. So that means that Bolt came 3rd and he was glad that he made the top 3.
