Reaching For My Goal!!!

When I was little I always wanted to be a netball player but I still do.My Mum started to coach me and train me. Days went by and I started to get better and better.So me and my Mum  decided to make a Team. That Team was called the Funky Ferns.We wore pink to represent us and black to represent New Zealand.In my team was Toreka who was my best friend.

Once we were all trained up we played against the Sparkles. When we saw them we all started to giggle because they were really small."Whooo" the whistle blew and the rain started to pour down on us. Running to defend my player I jumped up and passed it to Cameron another friend of mine.She passed it to another player and passed it to Toreka who shot the first shot and it got it in!!!! 

At last the Game finished and we all shaked hands to the other team.We won 24 to nothing. Looking back to this game I thought I was really proud with myself for reaching for my goal ever since I was 5.     


Light is as bright as a globe of  hot burning fire,
and like a star rolling across the nights sky like a tire.
Melting the wax from a lighten candle,
and airing the house with a pink and purple jandle.

Dream World

 Last year for my Christmas's holidays I went to Dream World and it was a blast.
Me and my family went on different kinds of awesome rides.My favourite thing to do is to go BUMPER car racing. Once I got to the Que of the line I had to wait for 10 minuets just to have a turn. Then out of no where I got pushed into the bumper tracks, so the I set off. Unexpectedly I got Bumped by my cousin, so blasted around the tracks and  hopefully tried to  bump into my cousin but I bumped into my sister.I looked around me and it was mostly my family trying to get me so I said to them, " Why me "  and they said nothing but just shrieked.I wanted to try and bump my sister but the car stopped and the announcer said, " Please exit your vehicle and leave please.So we did .I got out and started to run out the exit so they won't run me over.So I sprinted as fast as a cheetah and wondered where my family was."ooh" I said they were right behind me. So after a days of work I decided when I get back I'll have a big sleep.
Good night !!

The crystal clear water clashes and smashes,
trying to flatten the light house,
while I stand there doing nothing.
The rocks smash and the water spays out like a volcanoe


This is about a light house tumbling down.I hope you enjoy!!!

What is Beauty?

Beautiful colorful feathers just poping out behind,
The peacefully bird glares as his beauty,
While wobbling to get attention.

My First Pic-lit

PicLit from PicLits.comClimbing to the top I look in to the misty clouds and  feel free.
I see leaves and flowers falling of trees.
 Thinking that  this is the country that will keep ME to be.

Since Rover Pasted Away!

Sunshine has turned to darkness,
The sun has turned away,
ever since Rover and Jessie had died,
there is no time to play.

My love has turned to horror,
The flowers smell like mouldy cheese,
ever since my dogs has died,
there is no place to be......

Go Tainui!!!

As I approach the starting line,shivers pop up. I joslt for position at the starting line."Bang" with a burst of speed I zoomed around the corner while feeling competitive.As I ran out of the gates my heart was pounding and the mud was squelching between my toes.

I looked at the back of me and Selena was right behind me.With a pounding heart I escaped the gates saying ," Ow " as little spiky balls were making marks on my feet.Once I passed Mrs Squires I saw Kiani and Sharen starting to disappearing out of my sight.Trying to catch up to them I started to fail more and more.

Then encouragingly I kept on looking behind me saying to Selena to hurry up. As I started to run faster the cold breeze was holding me back.I quickly passed Dasiy and started to hear a loud crowd cheering for Tainui! I jumped onto the playground saying in my head" Hmm at less I came something.

Crossing the finished line I felt proud of coming third or at least a place.This years cross country for me was pretty long but I am still proud of myself for coming 3rd.

A Sunken Ferry

Mothers and children, Fathers and cousins had sadly pasted away from a boat that was thirty years old.

Hi my name is Ala and I will sadly talk about the ferry in Tonga that had SUNK! At around 11.00pm in Nuku'alofa they got up ready to go,the children,mothers,fathers and aunties and uncles. They went on a THIRTY! year old boat and that name of the boat was called princess Ashika. Six people from my part of my family had sadly pasted away.When I had heard about it I was shock but I was even more shocked because one man was going to meet his love life and get married.

When I turned the televison on I was so terrifed that I couldn't bare looking at it at father ringed every part of his family to see if my grandma had died but ....Be Continued.

Hansel and Gretal Part 1

Once upon a time there once lived a woodcutter that lived with a cruel stepmother and two lovely children. The two children's name
were Hansel and Gretel.One day a famine hit.  After the famine hit they became really really poor and only had enough food for a couple of days.But one night in their dimly-lit cottage the malicious stepmother came up with an evil plan,clutching each other Hansel and Gretal over heard whisperings from the kitchen.The cruel stepmother said in a growling voice,"Tomorrow at sunrise we will take Hansel and Gretal to the enchanted forest and abandon them for ever HAHAHAHAHA!"she said.  Gretal started to cry and they started to tremble with fear.The father felt shame and remorseful because he couldn't stand up for him self.  In the dark moon-lit night, Hansel jumped out of his bedroom saying,"Ouch Ow"as he walked on the stoned footpath.  He hastily gathered shiny white pebbles and heard a cackled sound,"Who's there?"

Hamish Campbell Conference

Hamish Campbell is a geologist and a research scientist of earthquakes and much more, well actually he is a world WIDE! geologist. He works for a company called The GNS. GNS stands for Geological Nuclear Sciences.
Did you know that an earthquake happens so fast that we don't know when it will come.
In 1976 in Tangshan China near Beijing the earthquake lasted
for about 15 seconds and killed 242,000 people! 

Well this year in Fiordland we had a earthquake and it lasted 30 seconds and killed no one but had injured around  50,000 people. Did you know that it was the biggest earthquake in the world since 80 years and was 7.6 magnitude. Hamish Campbell told us about different things that we all ready knew like a seismometer,a seismometer is a instrument that records the intensity of an earthquake. 

Once they heard about the earthquake they decided to name it Dusky Sound. I have also learnt that the Australian plate went 30 degrees under the Pacific plate!!!
Oh did I also mention that another guest was
joining us... her name was Diana-Grace from the museum of Te Papa.

She had trouble to connect her camera with our camera because we had  called before her.
She is a really funny lady and has a great heart.

 Hamish Campbell also told us that Joan Wiffen had passed away in 2009. This lady, Joan Wiffen, was one of the first woman to find a dinosaur bone. She was a paleontologist and was also a famous scientist for searching dinosaur bones.

If you would like to learn and see more then have a try and click on any of these links:

I would love to thank google images and for letting me use their pictures and Hamish Campbell plus Diana-Grace for sharing with us their thoughts about the earthquake.


Do you know what a seismometer is? well if you don't then come along and learn what the extension group has been learning about.In my group is Angela, Selena and me. First we had to surf the web to find a website that clearly showed you how to make a Seismometer OH I nearly forgot a seismometer is an instrument that helps in measuring earthquake and ground movements. Secondly we had to get a cardboard box,scissors,a cup and a vivid.If you would like to see how it worked then click play to see how it worked but anyways I think it went OK!!
