Hoping to Win

Every Monday, I have been practising to play for the Touch Rugby Tournament.  I've been practising a lot at home and I've learnt plenty of skills that gives me energy for the day. 
One of the activities we do is suicides. Suicides gets us fit. We have to run between two lines until we can't run anymore. There are 4 teams participating at the tournament from Glen Innes School. 
What are we hoping for? We are hoping to win and have fun.

Practising for the Touch Tournament

Every Monday, we have been practising for the touch tournament. I have been practicing with my squad and my teachers who are Mrs. Barry and Ata.  
We have  learnt skills such as stepping, so I can dodge my opponents. We have also been learning fake passes because my opponents will think that I’m going to pass that side but when really I’m going to pass the opposite way. 
What I’ll like to achieve from the tournament is to  win all my games and have a good time.

Halloween by Lauren

Kia Ora, every year I see a lot of kids trick or treating on the 31st of October. I’ve never ever been out to trick or treat during Halloween in my life.  Halloween must be so awesome  as we get lots of treats from house to house.
Sometimes kids get toothaches from eating lots of chocolates and lollies. Little kids are dressed up in freaky costumes. It has got to be the most scary, fantastic, most mind blowing, spectacular and out of control it is called Halloween! Guess what I’m going to dress up as. A VAMPIRE! or HARRY POTTER! maybe a TIGER! If I go... trick or treat smell my feet give me something nice to eat, if you don’t I will make you a pumpkin head instead.
I hope I celebrate halloween like the other kids.

Vacation by Shanelle

I would like to go on a vacation
very far away
I would take a private jet
to a place that we will stay

We will take supplies
for that scrummy adventure
we will take part
in a surfing extravaganza

We’ll get a surfing board
and surf the waves
we will get some bathing suits
for me and my crew

We won the extravaganza
that was so close
team John almost caught up
but we were too good

We have to go home now
we’ll come back again
It’s fun to vacation
far away on a plane
