In the hoildays!!!!


In the holidays some kids at Pt. England school are going to Totara Springs. Every year Mr Burt Puts a club on for year 4 and up to year 8.In every term he take us on trips and some times he takes us to Browns Island.
The club is called Riverside and it is on Wednesday after school. At the club we play games and when we are tired Mr Brut says we can go and eat. The food we eat are so yummy. We also talk about JESUS and our heavily father GOD. Every terms Mr Brut takes us on a trip. Sometimes he takes us to Browns Island. When we get to Browns Island we have a swim and have a BBQ. But in term 3 he take the year 4 and up to year 8 to camp. The camp we go to is Totara Springs. Last year I went and I had a lot of fun. The only thing i hate is that we have to get up at 7 in the morning because the camp is in Matamata. On our way to Matamata we had to pick up some kids form other schools.
Last year when we left school I was so excited, but then everyone on the bus got sleepy so we fell asleep. By the time we woke up everyone was so loud. Matamata was about 3 more hours away but luckily I brought a book along. The book was called GOING UP WITH A BANG!

Cool Kiwis





It’s not that they are all small.The smallest is the little spotted kiwi and it is smaller then a rugby ball.

The biggest kiwi is about 45 cm tall and as big a rugby ball.

Female kiwis are larger then male kiwis.

The biggest kiwi is about 45cm tall. It is about as big as a rugby ball. kiwis are or can grow to a certain size like 45cm of height. But as you must know that the kiwis name is The Great Spotted kiwi.

I suppose people wouldn’t call kiwis bright coloured, they only have brown rough plumage. A kiwi skin is so rough that it is not as smooth as another birds. Other birds have beautiful plumage, but kiwis don’t they only have brown dull plain feathers. The most ridiculous thing is their bill.

Did you know that a kiwi is a flightless bird. Well many people think that kiwis have no wings, but they do, they hide underneath there brown plain plumage.They also have a curved claw at the end of their wing. If a kiwi was ment to fly they will need to have a tail.

Did you know kiwis use their legs for digging their borrows and running away from their preys.kiwis have strong island legs and feet. They can alsoout run a average person.

Female kiwis lay their eggs in the borrows, the father kiwi sits on the eggs for 2 and half months. It takes 3 days for the baby kiwi to hatch, when the baby kiwi comes out it cuddles up to it’s fathers plumage. As soon as the kiwi is about 6 months old it can leave it’s borrow and travels by it’s own.

Most birds can glide through the air kiwis can’t. Some birds have nice coloured feathers, but kiwis don’t. There is even a birds that can swim under ice cold water kiwis can’t do that.

And there you have it. How could you resist a big fat, strong rugby player legged, flightless bird, which is ugly and drab?

If kiwis aren’t cool, then I don’t no what is!

CROSS COUNTRY 2010


As I walked in class I was ambushed by Mr Burt, I mean he told us that we had to do cross country in the cold morning. I think it was so no one would bring their sick notes.
Before cross country started my heart was pounding like lighting, when we went outside to sit down in our groups i had butter fies, in my stomach. It was painful. Everyone around me looked so exited and I felt like the odd one out.
When I heard Mr Burt say "11 year old girls and boys please line up at the start line".I was scared, and then I stood up with a scary feeling in my bones.As I had trouble finding a place to stand, my butter fies got bigger and bigger. When Mr Burt said "TAKE YOUR MARKS" my heart pounded harder and harder, then "CLAP".I zoomed off, but then I remember that Miss Garden said to past yourself.
As I went out of school the grounds, the ground felt like slippery soap, but then sluggish gluey gummy mud went all over my uniform. It was so yuck. I saw people behind me so i could not rub it off. Then I saw a teacher in front of me, so I jogged to her and went past some trees. When i reached Miss King I had to stop because I had very horrible cramps in my legs. Miss King said "LEG IT" so I ran as fast as I could.
When I ran in to the school the grounds, I heard my team saying "GO TAINUI GO", and I could see 3 people in front if me. I spurted past them and came in 5th place.,WOW I did better then I thought.
After the race I felt so wasted I just wanted to fall down and sleep. My legs were numb, like if you went to the dentist and they make your lips numb, well like that. When I washed my feet under the cold water my legs felt so much better. I am so proud of myself, because I finished the race!!


All about me!!!
