Heremaia Poem

Where I am from I smell freshly baked brownie
Where I am from I see kids playing about
Where I am from I smell mum baking yum yum
Where I am from I taste the steak and cheese in my mouth
Where I am from I see taggings on the wall

Heremaia bush writing

One morning Jacob went for a jog with his friends Alex,Tom and Jerry after a furious rainstorm in the forest.They were jogging to the forest where the rainstorm was.They finally got to the forest and in front of their eyes was the biggest mud puddle. Jacob,Alex,Tom and Jerry were terrified so they ran around. What they did not know was that was the only way to get out, and it was where the big puddle was.

It was getting darker and they were still stuck in the forest. Jerry was shaking with horror as the night fell. They were all shaking, they all thought their was no way out and their end was near. As the sun rose they set off. They went under bushes, over branches and had nothing to eat.

Still no site of the exit, still stuck, still hungry. As days went by they started to lose hope into finding their way out. But on the other side of the forest were unexpected sounds. They all heard it, they all ran, they all thought it was the exit but then it stopped, just dead stop. It was like they were all drawn away from it to get out.

  

Heremaia Naritive



On a burning hot day my brother and I we went to go dive off the Groyne. The only thing that was different was the wind when I went diving off the Groyne. I knocked my head on a rock and started to drown.My brother did not know what happen because he left. Then as my body floated up I began to breath.

I heard the wind in the distance and a noise. I realized that noise, it was my brother. I shouted from a far away, "Toko”.He did not reply. I was so scared, I thought that the end of my life was near. I took one more try, one more clonk of air and shouted from the top of my lungs, "TOKO”. He replied “where are you?" I took my last bit of air and out of the corner of my eye was a shadow, a tall black shadow coming towards me.

My trip to Swimarama

The first time I went down the slide I was zooming down, gaining speed. I was I was going so fast I was scraping my skin on all the bumps down the slide. As I was going down the water was going up my nose. At the end I "Whoosh," I screamed as I zoomed out of the slide. First turn finished.
Back up on the stairs I went for another turn. It was dark and scary when I went down the second time. I was trying to go around in circles but I knew I wouldn't. I came down and all the water ran up my nose again.
The last time I went down I tried to bomb in the the slide but I knew I would knock my head on the top of the slide so I didn't. I slid down the normal way.

Staying home


On Monday I was ready and packed ready for camp but then I discovered that I wasn't allowed to go I felt so bad I was waiting as long as last year so I stayed home the whole time.While I was at home my mum was sick.While she was in bed I was cleaning up the house. I told her that I would make lunch but she said, "No it's alright." She was getting better the whole time.

After she went to sleep I was looking after all the kids. Finally after that I was relaxing down on the couch and watching the T.V.I was going to sleep but then I was watching this cool movie it was called the Haunting of the something. It was a cool video.Before long it was three o'clock, and then the school kids came home.

Picnic


On Friday 24 February our school went on a picnic to the Pt England reserve. We had a talk about where to play and not to play then Mr Burt went out the door and into to the Breeze followed by the Year7 and 8 all the way to the juniors. Our walk only took just five minutes. When we got there we all sat down and Mr Burt gave us some more rules. Finally we went to go find our picnic spot.

I thought our classes were going to be in different places but all the Intermediate classes sat in the same place so that meant I was wrong. After we found our area I didn't know which exact one was room 20's so I just put my bag on any of the tarpaulins.After that I wondered , "Should I go for a nice walk along the sand and talk to Tevita?"

While we were walking along the beach we saw most of our friends like Lorenzo ,Max, Silas and Kane. They were playing with a rugby ball. Tevita and I were going to ask them if we could play rugby on the beach. But then I saw every one grabbing something so I asked Tevita “What are they all getting?"He said “They are getting a fruit”.As i heard I sprinted over there as fast as i could to get one and I saw they where Peach’s so i took one bite of that delicious peach after that one I took another and after that one I took another and then another one I couldn't stop taking The peach’s but then they where all gone.

Making clay is a hard job you have to roll it in water until it turns it in to the shape you want it to look like and then chuck it in sand.

Being cyber smart


One day Brook took a picture of herself at home. Then she posted her photo online so everyone could see it. The next day she turned on her computer and had a look at her Facebook page. Suddenly Brook saw all her friends with her picture. As she tried to remove that picture from her page she said to herself “Omg I thought my photo was private”. Brook went back on her page and saw her photo still on the page. So she froze and felt ashamed!!! Of her photo that was online she tried 100!!! times just to take it off. But she failed. Then every one saw it even strangers.
Think before you post NZ.

My poem

I am an eater
my favourite is jelly

I am a swimmer
but bombing is my favorite

I am a worker
my favourite job is washing

I am a game freak
and the games I like are fighting games

I am a son
I love my mother and my farther

Thank you for reading

A cold day at the beach

The wind was howling like a wolf as we dived in for a swim.I came out in a big ice cube ‘Ohhhhhhhh’ I said to myself it so cold I was shivering so hard my teeth chattered.There was no sun.We all were chilly but they couldn't let me freeze to death.
