Cold Poem

Hi there today I am going to show you my winter poem. In week 1 we had  a writing choice of three things and I chose to do the poem so here it is





It is cold.
Freezing  cold.
It is so freezing,
Birds freeze in trees,
Hot dog are Ice dogs,
People are running to their homes.
It is so cold,
No one is outside,
Bodybuilders are ice cubes
Lollies that lick themselves tongues get stuck,
And
The grass is on frost,
It is so cold,
Metal is now fully Ice,
while
Beaches are blank
As
The scorched toes of the tide ...
Wait there are none there.

Quick write

Hi there this is my quick write blog post  and this is a story of two girls who find a ticket but don't know what it is capable of ...

                                            THE LOST TICKET
Hi there today I'm not going to tell you the story ... just kidding I will ... well most of it I don't really know the real story but I'll tell you all I know so at school one day two girls were walking down the path one girl said to me "I can't belief that this is the end." " The end of what?" I asked " the end of the story" so that's all I'm going to tell you but there are somethings you might of missed ..................................... ha I got you again so this is the real story.

" wow that was a great ride.""NO it was not, not one tiny bit!" "yeah yeah yeah."Jessie and Kate are best friends they did everything together. "Can we go on the next ride" asked Kate, Jessie turned round in shock "NO" she said. As they were walking home Kate found a ticket lying on the ground she looked around to see if anyone would claim it but everyone didn't pay any attention to her, so she slowly picked up. "Jessie" she said "Come look at this", Jessie payed no attention and walked away. Kate ran to catch up with her she showed Jessie the thing and they both took a closer look at it and gasped it was a ticket that said, A ticket for two a ticket for three a ticket for you a ticket for me.


 The girls laughed and walked away with the ticket in their hands. later that night Kate's mum could hear them  saying unusual stuff but she didn't care "Jessie"said Kate "your talking in your sleep again ... Jessie." "Zzz ..." "yes she stopped" and just then " Zzz" "Arg."

 The next day the girls walked down a dark dark valley and then all of a sudden the ticket started to glow next minute the girls started to shrink and then they got puled down into a ............................................................... different world! "Wow there is lots of fun things here that we can do" said Jessie " Yeah but there is one problem though we aren't in our world were in the ticket!" So at that time they looked up and saw that someone picked up the ticket and put it in her bag.
"Well that is not good I wonder what this place is called?" asked Kate "wee" said a voice coming from their backs "you're in the land of fun also known as the fun fair world" out came a fury pink dog and after her a person came looking for them "ah there you are wow you look different than  I thought" she said.

 " Excuse me and who are you" said Kate "hello" said Jessie "oh excuse me where are my manners I am sprinkles and this is my dog cupcake, we are your tour guides and we are here to.." "I know I know you are here to take us around the place right?" said Kate "that and to tell you you're new name." " my new name! I'm Kate and that's that no questions asked" "yeah and me too except for the name is Kate part cause my name is Jessie duh." Then suddenly pop out they went "we're free we're free we're free" until the next day ..........

 I haven't yet finished the rest of the story

The day the bully stopped

Once there was a girl a girl named Rose. She liked school, cheer leading and gymnastics, Just like Olivia. Olivia is 1 year older than Rose Olivia doesn't like school, She does like cheer leading and gymnastics though. She was always jealous of Rose and wanted to be the best cheerleader but she wasn’t Rose was.

She was furious when she heard that, when she did she had to do something about it so that is what she did. One sunny morning at school Olivia said to Rose that “Coach told me to tell you that you are kicked of the team you know the team that meant lots to you.” Rose replied “Are you sure because I’m pretty sure that coach would tell me herself” “ Nope she told me to tell you.” Rose tried to keep her tears in but she couldn’t help herself so she ran never wanting to come back.

In the afternoon team practice was on and Rose came to return her uniform but when she got there her coach said “why aren’t you in your uniform?.” She answered “I’m not on the team anymore don’t you remember! You are the one who kicked me of the team! Aren’t you?” Her coach looked confused and everyone turned to Olivia in frustration she started to explain “I didn’t mean to harm anyone.”but they all agreed that she did cause trouble and lots of terrible things. “I’m really sorry and I hope that we can be all good.” But that didn’t change what she did, although they did find it in their heart to forgive her for what she had done. And after that day she became a nicer person to everyone in the school, and every day she would say a big thank you to her coach and teachers for everything she has learned.
I hope you enjoyed my post today. bye for now

Maori hand games

Hi there today I'm going to tell you about Maori hand games. On Wednesday I went to some really nice people that taught me how to do Maori hand games. When I got there I was a little nervous because I didn’t really get what we were doing but eventually I got it, we were learning different types of Maori hand games. First we learnt how to make a cup and saucer with string, we also learnt how to make a jellyfish. This was really challenging to me because I have never done this before but I soon got the hang of it and I could do it really fast. After that we went to learn how to use knuckle bones, I was really excited to do this because I have knuckle bones at home and that means that I can practice at home (if I want though). We learnt 4 different types of tricks/styles. Then we all came together to learn a game or two, one was called Hei tama tu tama and the other one was called hipi toitoi. They were both games maori people played in the olden days where there are no ipods and stuff like that this was how they entertained and warmed themselves.I really enjoyed learning these games because they are very interesting.
       
Here are some fun facts :
  • Using the string in the olden days helped to tell stories to the younger people
  • The knuckle bones in maori are called Koruru
  • The knuckle bones help to flexing your wrists
  • Back in the day people used to use stones instead
  • Back in the day people put rocks in poi and the boys usually did the poi                   

here are some photos of my group this is me 
                           We have mastered this one!
  video
here is a video of me, Piper and Anika doing some string tricks sorry that I couldn't do a video of me doing hei tama tu tama or hipi toi toi. Thank you for reading and watching my blog post I really enjoyed doing this for you. Bye
