My new Sibling YAAAY!

A few weeks ago I got a call from my mum to say that my new sibling was born and it was a girl.
I was so excited to have a new sister. I was hoping for it to be a girl as well. I was so happy for my dad and my step mother.

But sadly I can’t see her until this coming holiday. I can’t wait to see her. My dad says her name is Kiarah Grace Hayward Pakinga. “its a beautiful name “ I said to myself smiling with excitement.

Three more weeks until I get to see her “YAAAY”

Editing

First Editing
It was a horrible day as we moved in to our new home. But it wasn’t new at all it was old and dark spiders crawled up the door. It was like we were moving it to a dark hole where there  halloween decorations everywhere. I wasn’t even brave enough to check the place out.

My mum and dad showed me my room I was surprised because there was already a bed in it. as I was getting settled I heard a whisper coming from underneath my bed saying “Welcome to my home” in a smooth voice. I was eager to look underneath so I did but no one was there.

I rushed downstairs to tell my parents but as I ran past the room opposite from mine I heard another whisper coming from behind a draw. Looking behind it still nothing was there. I thought I was just imagining it. It kept whispering my name “Sofi Sofi” again and again.

But as the sun rose up the whispers slowly went away. My eyes were red from staying up so late. But I finally I fell asleep in peace. The next morning whispers weren't there so I was so happy. My parents looked at me and said “you look like you sow a ghost” I just looked at them and smiled.

It was a horrible day as we moved in to our new home. But it wasn’t new at all it was old and dark. Spiders crawled up the door, the wind blew up through cracks in the floor boards and paint was peeling of the weatherboards. It was like we were moving it to a dark hole, more like a set for a scary movie than a welcoming home. I wasn’t even brave enough to check the place out. “Come on Sofi its not that bad” mum said encouragingly.

Reluctantly I followed my mum and dad inside as they showed me my room. I was surprised because there was already a bed in it “Here you go sweetie we'll leave you to it” mum had said smiling. As I was getting settled I heard a whisper coming from underneath my bed saying “Welcome to my home” in a smooth voice. I cautiously looked underneath my bed but there was nothing to be seen.

I rushed downstairs to tell my parents but as I ran past the room opposite from mine I heard another whisper coming from behind a draw. Looking behind it still nothing was there. I thought I was just imagining it. It kept whispering my name “Sofi Sofi” again and again.

As the sun went down I tried to sleep but  the whispering kept me up. Hours and hours past and suddenly it was quite as the sun rose up the whispers slowly went away. My eyes were red from staying up so late. But finally I fell asleep in peace. I woke up late that day and whispers weren't there. My parents looked at me and said “you look like you sow a ghost” I just looked at them and smiled.

Athletics Day

On friday Pt England School had a whole day of Athletics. It wasn’t until we all dressed up in our house colours when we all were ready to start a whole day of Athletics. But before we knew it we were at our first activity.

Soft Ball Throw

Soft Ball Throws was our first activity we had. Throwing the ball was pretty easy for some of us. Coming first, second and third was Mele, Porsha and Jorja. They were very good at it too.   

Next activity

Our next activity was a game called Hop, Skip and Jump. It was a game i’m sure everybody could play. The rules of the game were that we had to do those exactly moves to win or go the furthest.  Also for this game the people that came first, second and third was Mele, Giana and me Taamai “yay”.

My Favorite activity
“Wow” my favorite activity was....oh High Jump was it. High Jump was really fun and the most exciting activity and I hope it was your’s too. Ones the bell rang we ran back to class for home time and off we went from an exhausting Athletics Day.

First Day At School.



Second Draft
The moment I opened my eyes from a long sleep I remembered it was my first day of school. I jamped out of my bed feeling so excited to start my first day at school. I had left all my friends from Kindergarten but I knew I was going  to see them again before long when they turned five.

“Its going to fun on your first day of school” my sister said. I felt like I was going to explode from all the excitement inside of me.

I changed in to my uniform as fast as I could. Chucked on my shoes and rushed to get my bag and after breakfast my mum happily yelled out “ Are you ready for your first day of school” I replied “YES” in the most exciting way. Then off my mother and I whent. As soon as we stepped foot out of the house I grabbed my mom's hand and pulled her along the footpath.

Walking through the school gate’s I could see kids coming from everywhere as if they were a herd of animals. They all looked like little red dots. Hearing the laughter of everyone made me smile.

I played until the bell rang. When the bell did ring my mum took me to class but as I walked into class everyone stared at me like I had done something wrong. I sat down beside a five year old girl. My my new teacher was Miss Gorge she was very kind and helpful.

My Holiday Highlight


During the first week of the holidays my mum and step dad took my family to the beach. It was a long ride but it was still fun and exciting it was a very hot day as well. After we had went to the beach we were off to the park to have more fun. Once we got to the park we started to get hungry so my mum made chicken sandwiches it was most delicious.


As we were about to play a game it was time to go home so we all ran into the car. As we arrived home we were too full to have dinner so we went to watch a movie in my step dads room.

That night we stayed up very late until we finished watching three movies.
My sister asked me to get her a drink so I did after a while we slowly fell asleep.
It was a very long day for all of us.

Going to the beach was my holiday highlight.

Martin Luther King

           
Anniversary - Speech “ I have a dream”.

In the 1960’s America was hard for the blacks to live in because blacks and whites were not equal in many ways. Schools and restaurants and other public places were segregated,This means that blacks and whites always had to be separated. Unfortunately the whites and blacks were not equal. Also the blacks had to give up their seats to whites on the bus. Fifty long years ago Martin Luther King gave his powerful and inspiring speech “ I have a dream”. His dream was to change things so the blacks and whites could come together. He also wanted equality.
 
MLk was born on Jan 15th 1929.He  studied law and then he followed in his father's footsteps of being a minister. He also had a passion standing up for black people’s rights. In his years he spent 11 days in jail for traffic and and taxing offenced.

His dream was to make whites and blacks could go school together and the whites and blacks could get along and were able to sit alongside one another on the bus.

MlK was in a book signing in Harlem when he suddenly got stabbed by a woman called Izola Curry on April 4Th 1968.He didn't die. At 6:01pm on Thursday, April 4, 1968 he got shot by a single bullet and went through his right cheek breaking his jaw and neck and several vertebrae. This resulted in his death.

Poem About the beach and My Home

                  
                                 

Where i’m from I see my family breathing the fresh air
I  hear splashing and laughter of everyone.
I smell the smoked sausages and patties cooking on the BBQ.
I feel the warmth of the scorching sun as I lie in the sand as if I was getting fried in a pan.







I see my nana sitting on her bed from an exhausting day.  
I hear the washing machine whirring swirling.
I feel my mom's arms wrapped around me as if I was a present.
I taste the delicious food my mum and nan make specially for us.

Term 3 Reflection


Term 3 is nearly over.
Wow term 3 is nearly over and so is the year. Being a year seven wasn't very long at all. But it was fun. The terms went past and now its nearly the holidays. CAN’T WAIT.

Playing Netball For The School
Netball season has finished. Playing it was exciting and fun. The best thing about it finishing was the shared lunch and most of all the prize giving. Because my team and I received the coolest AIM Netball badge. We all got one each it was an awesome prize. I realized that day that my group was the only group out of our school netball teams to get to go to prizes giving but it didn't matter it was fun.

Sports
Sports this term was playing basketball. We learnt new moves but mostly how to play. Every Tuesday we would practice basketball. Through the term we got better and better. It was a great sport to learn and play.

Protesting In New Zealand


Pulled out of school on a Monday morning by my mum and dad I was going with them to protest at a rugby game, the Springboks game . We drove all the way to Hamilton on the cloudiest day. When arriving we saw the stadium.We quickly joined the huge crowd of protesters waving signs that said “Stop The Tour” and singing. Rugby fans threw bottles and cans at us. As we entered the field they shouted,”Get off the field!” But we didn't.

We stayed at every game chanting in unison “1,2,3,4 we don't what no racist tour”. We chanted for hours and hours at every game there was. Fans didn't like what we did but we didn't care we wanted the tour to stop so we chanted more. Fans got very angry and threw a lot of cans.

Countries boycotted South Africa by stopping playing sports with them and stopping trading with them. But NZ ignored this and went back on their agreements not to play and invited the Springboks, South Africa’s rugby team to play sports in New Zealand. And this is why we started to protest.

Cross Country Fun Run

On Thursday the 22nd of August Pt England had a Cross Country Fun Run. It was cool and exciting for everyone and this is how it all started.  

At school everybody thought that it would rain but it hadn't it was the hottest sunniest day of the week. Getting changed into my PE clothes I thought to myself “This is going to be really fun”. Then it was lunchtime we all went out to play before the run had started. Some people went to buy themselves a sausage sizzle for $2.00.  

When lunchtime had finished everybody sat in there lines getting ready to start running. first up to run were the year 1’s and 2’s. For them the race that they ran for them it was pretty hard but us year 7&8 thought that would've been so easy to run.

When the day had got hotter the intermediate teachers decided to take us on the other side of the field where there were shade to sit under until it was our turn to run. When it was time for the year 7 girls to run we all went up to the starting line. standing in front of us was Mr Burt getting ready to turn the horn on. When he did we all run as fast as we could.

At the end of the race we all were proud of our self. We went back to our class to get our things so we could go home.

It was so cool and fun and hope to do it again.

A Week Of Art

Yellow Hat - The things I enjoyed?
I enjoyed making new patterns that were really exciting and fun. I also enjoyed making art with my friends and Mrs Tito.  What I mostly really admired was that Mrs Tito made art so fun.

Black Hat - Which things didn't I like?
What I did not like was on a Friday we did not get to do anything fun or exciting because we hadn't cleaned our mess. All we did was right a reflection on what we did this week. It was really boring.

Green Hat - What was something interesting about this week?
What I did this week that was really interesting was carving samoan patterns. It was really Cool and fun but it took me age’s to carve out.
I was really hoping to finish it.
White Hat - What did I learn?
I learned how to carve with a carving knife and how to hold it. I also learned how to make things that I did not know how to.

Red Riding hood fairytale.

Once upon a time red riding hood was a unrespectful little girl. She would not listen to her mum and dad so ended up grounded. One day her parents asked her to take a basket of fresh red apples to her grandma at the end of the bath. Red riding hood did not listen to her mum. So her mum told her “If you do not do what me or dad tell you to do then you will be grounded for threats of your life.

Red Riding Hood felt really angry and had to take the basket of apples to her grandma.
So she was off into the forest. Her parents had forgot to tell Red Riding Hood that there was a  big bad wolf.

latter on Red Riding hood nearly reached the end of the path until the big bad wolf jumped out of nowhere and asked her where she was going. Red replied i am going to my grandma’s cottage at the end of the path.

The wolf thought to himself “I can gobble her up and then the grandma two meals for dinner yeay”. The wolf golbeld Red riding Hood up starting from the head down blood puddles everywhere. “Now its time for my second meal grandma.

The wolf ran off with blood running down his mouth. The wolf finally reached the end of the bath. He opened the door and walked in he sow grandma asleep and gobbled her up too.

He was really full so ran back into the forest to have a nap. Red Riding Hoods parents never felt better before with their daughter gone.

Another Day

One day a little girl named Lily was doing the same old thing every day and thought it was getting boring. Every morning she would wake up saying “Its just another boring day” she wanted to do something fun with her friends so she asked them if they had other things to do and play with.
One of Lily’s friends Caleb said that her dad could take us to the park today. Lily looked surprised and ran around in circles and said “Yippee this is going to be so fun”.

Later on when Lily and her friends arrived at the park they raised to the swirly slide. Caleb's dad yelled out be careful don’t get hurt.

A few hours latter Lily hurt her leg and started to cry. Her friends ran up to her and asked her what was wrong Lily said she fell off the flying fox and landed on her leg. Caleb's dad ran over to see what had happened he said to Lily that her leg was broken and took her to the hospital.

On Monday was a really busy day for my family because it was a day that we had to do a big clean up around and inside the house. My big brothers and my dad did the outside work meaning mowing the lawn and cleaning the shed’s.

The girls did all the inside work with my mum and nan. I washed the dishes and my sister dried. we cleaned the sitting room and kitchen but after awhile I wanted to help my brothers mow the lawn outside. But my dad said it was a boys job that had to be done. Latter on I asked him if I could just help them and my dad said again it is a boys job. So I just wanted them work and played around happily it was so cool.

The day that never happened







One day I was so excited to go to Rainbows End For my cousin's birthday. So I went to pick out the clothes that I was going to wear. I was so excited i couldn't stop thinking of it and how fun it would be.

Then I was writing down what things that would be fun to ride. I wondered what the Roller Coaster would be like scary, fun, exciting or all of them together.

I went to ask my mum if she was excited too and she said yes very but it isn't this week its in August. I was so still I was not thinking of anything my excitement was gone. It was like it was a day that never happened.

Here I am thinking that that day was going to happen. Not even now I have to wait until August comes It was a bummer.
