The Dragon

There once lived a boy named Jordan. One night he fainted and fell asleep. The next morning, he woke up and he was wearing a crown and his skin colour was green, he had wings like beautiful butterfly wings. Everyone said “Long lived the king”. In the afternoon, he will teach his kids how to fly and teach him how growl. The next day he was flying around and he saw a island.

In that island it had a sign that said “Do not enter”. When he went inside the house in the island, it had a man controlling 3 people at a time. When he saw the man, he tried to kill him but it was too hard because he had a special power. 3 hours later, Jordan figured out a plan. He told his son to  tell the man to meet him at the tallest hill of the village. When he came by the hill, there was no-one there and then out of no-where, he took him and dropped him all the way down the hill and fell into lava. “Yes!”

The next day, he heard a voice saying “Wake up Jordan, Wake up Jordan!!” The voice got louder and louder and then he woke up from a dream and he told the dream to his mother.

The Whisperer

Walking from school, Vaifoa heard a familiar noise coming from a empty dark farm. Walking inside with muddy feet, Vaifoa heard a secret message. Calling across the farm “STOP, STOP, STOP!!!” Vaifoa was scared and nervous.  Seeing blood everywhere, it got scarier and scarier. When Vaifoa looked at the entrance it was closed.

Running across the pitched black place. He fell over into a hole which was a shiny bright room which had swords, bows and spears. Then he looked into the mirror and he saw a ghost which was a little boy with freckles. “Ahhh” said Vaifoa. When he looked back there was no-one there. He took the bow and practice aiming for 2 and half hours. When he got out of the shiny bright room he wanted to stay in there for a bit longer but he knew the ghost was in there..

Eating his lunch he heard another noise and everytime he heard that noise he will always use his arrows. 1 more arrow left. He got closer and closer, “No! No! No!” said the mysterious noise. “Its 5:45, ok, 15 more minutes left until night time.

He got closer and closer and when he saw the secret message, it was a goat screaming, he was getting murdered by a teenager. He got out his bow and aimed at the murderer. Beep Beep Beep, the murderer looked at him and killed him then the goat got outraged and hit him and then the ghost came and scared the murderer away. Then the ghost went inside Vaifoa’s body and lived in him forever. Then the goat died many years after and the murderer never came back again.

Show Not Tell

WALT: Show not tell when writing a paragraph.

Light booted shoes, trudging over the smooth footpath. Swishing noises from the furious cars. Loud noises from neighbours shouting and arguing. “Almost there” I said. Friends waving, birds roaring out squeaky noise. Marching down the entrance, I hear an intense noise.

The Dark Rainbow

There once lived a boy named Kris, it was his birthday. So he went to Dark Rainbow with his friends John and Luke. Later that day the Dark Rainbow’s manager made the rides faster and scarier. When John and Luke came by Kris’s house. Kris was ready, but he didn't like the smell of his perfume. When they got there it wasn’t a big line as always. They had four hundred and thirty two dollars. When they got inside they went to the nearest ride and that was the rolling barrel. They had to go inside the barrel and roll down the hill. Once they up top of the hill, John said “Are you ready guys?,” “Yep,” shouted Luke. They all rolled down to the bottom of the hill.

Next they went to the roller coaster, the roller coaster wasn't full, they were the only ones in line. When they got inside the roller-coaster, they all were holding hands. “3,2,1” said the lady. They all shouted “AHHHHHH!!!!” When they got back to the roller coaster house again, the roller coaster didn't stop it kept going. The lady has fallen asleep and spilt her water into the control panel. “Help!” said John.

When the manager knew that the roller coaster hasn't been stopping, he called 911. The cops came with the ambulance as fast as they could. “What is going on,” said the cops, “The roller coaster isn't stopping. The cops tried throwing a rope and pulling it down but it did not work. They threw a rock in the corner of the ride but it did not stop. Then when they came with a big swimming pool, they shouted to John, Kris and Luke to jump in the swimming pool.

Luke jumped out first he was about to faint because he was a big fear of heights. When he jumped off he did a big bomb into the swimming pool. Next was John. John was a swimmer, he loved to dive off from big heights and do big splashes. When he dived off he did 3 back flips. Last was Kris, Kris didn't like water especially cold water. When he stood up, he fainted and landed on the swimming pool. “I think he fainted because of his perfume,” wondered Luke.

The next day Kris was in the hospital and was very sick. When his friends came over, they had pizza and fish’n’chips. When all his family and friends left. He felt lonely and fell to sleep. The day after that his whole family came over to visit and give him flowers. John and Luke came over and gave him a lot of presents. 13 years later Kris came out of the hospital and wasn't allowed to wear any perfume again and never go to a big heights.

Newspaper Matching

Muster is when a farmer calls a group of sheep or cows to come in and the farmer feeds it, cleans it or do something for them. I had trouble pairing it because my group never knew what muster was and I thought muster was feeding 1 cow.

The Foal Is Born

There was a boy name Ryan, His mum had a horse named Del. Del was gonna have a foal. Ryan was watching Del grow bigger and bigger. The next day Ryan said “It’ll be born any days now.” Later that evening Ryan fell to sleep and had a good nap. When Ryan woke up his mum and dad was in the horse paddock and there was a little foal lying down on Del.

Ryan ran as fast as he could outside, “It’s a filly,” said Dad. “Can I stroke her?” asked Ryan. “No!, It’s too soon, Del needs to get use to the foal.” replied Mum “. “You can at lease can look through windows in your room with your binoculars,” whispered Dad.” said Dad. The next morning he woke up and got his binoculars and looked across the field and saw the foal covered with something that looked like a white plastic bag. The foal was trying to get rid off the plastic bag. “Thats the sac that protected her when she was inside her mother” whispered dad. The foal was trying to stand with his long wobbly legs. “Time for school” said mum. Ryan replied back “Can i stroke her now,” “When you come back from school.” Replied mum.

While Ryan was at school, mum was feeding Del and giving him water to drink. A couple minutes after, the foal was ready to stand on her feet and ready for a feed. When the foal had finished drinking from her mother, the foal laid on the grass. Now it was time for Ryan’s mum to get use to the foal used to being touched. Ryan’s mum even put her fingers in the foals mouth and ears. Mum also put a leading rope around the foal to let get used to the feel of it.

When Ryan came home from school, the foal was sitting on the grass. Ryan ran to his mum and said “Can I stroke her now,” “Yes.” replied mum. “Whats her name?” he asked. “Dosti,” said his mum. “Hi, Dosti,” said Ryan, stroking the foal’s soft coat.

Now it was time to measure Dosti’s height. When Ryan measured her, she didn’t like the look of it. In the end, Mum had to hold Dosti still while Ryan moved the stick next to her. She didn’t like that much, either! “Ten hands” said mum. The Next day, the vet came to check Dosti and Del. She put a stethoscope on and listened to Dosti’s heartbeat. After that she checked Dosti’s blood to check if she had enough antibodies from Del’s milk.(Antibodies are special substances in the blood that help the body to fight off infections). “Dosti and Del was healthy and she’ll grow up to be a tall bay mare,” said the vet lady. “Just like her mum” said Ryan

My cousin got the flowers and decorations out of the plastic bag and decorated her grave, once it was finished it looked very beautiful. Then my brother said “Lets eat now!!”. It was pretty nice especially the chicken. Then we sang her a birthday song. Next we had to go home because we had white Sunday practise.

Monday, 26 August 2013


Never in my life had I thought that I’d end up here. On an island with my friend Lee. I remember the night before. The plane that I was on sunk into the ocean. Me and Lee escaped with our lives. But we’ve never been stranded before, except when it came to Minecraft, so our survival skills weren’t that weak.

We knew that at night there were these things that would come and go for the kill. After all, there was this cave with zombies in it.

We got started straight away. There was only one tree there, so I had to make the most of the opportunity. After 20 painful tree cutting hours, I finally got the wood. I made some wooden planks, to use later on.

Since there was only one tree, our house had to be made of dirt, as there were tons of it. It went well, until we got to the roof. The dirt kept falling down, so I went to got some clay. Lee used some of the planks to make a pickaxe.

Lee came back with enough cobblestone to make a furnace. I came back with lots of clay. But we had a problem. We hadn’t got anything to burn the clay, except for the wood.

I ran outside, looking for any more trees. None. When it seemed like we’d never use the precious wood again, I saw a sapling. If I planted it, then it’d grow into another tree. I saw another sapling.

There were 3 of them, so that meant that we would have 3x the wood. After planting them, I ran to Lee and told him the news. So we cooked the clay, and came out with bricks. We finished the roof by 5:30 p.m. The sun was going down.

Lee decided to make some beds, so he went out to the sheep, and started to tear off their wool. I used some sand to make glass. Now, we could watch the sun set, and we could know when it was safe to go outside.

I used the remaining wooden planks(6 of them), to make a door. Lee came back. “Hey uh..” He exclaimed, “The sheep ran away. I’ve only got enough wool for one bed.”
“Damn! Who’s gonna stay up and guard the house!?”
“What do you mean? You said that if there were enough, then we’d both sleep.”
“I mean that we’d go to sleep with swords in our hands.”

Lee jumped into the bed.
“I’m sleepy. You guard the house.”
I glared angrily at Lee. But Lee was in the bed, so I had no choice but to protect the house. I walked out, and looked at the cave. I was trembling. Was this a good idea? Then, I heard a stomp. It got louder. And louder. And louder. And lou--. It turned out to be a cow. I did a facepalm. Scared of a cow? Crazy.

But then a zombie ran out.
“EEP!” I screamed in horror. I threw the sword right at the zombie. It fell on the ground. As I picked up the sword, all the zombies ran out at me. I ran up a hill. The zombies had cornered me.

The sun came up just in time. For some reason, the zombies hated the sun. Maybe they were vampires. Then, a slow zombie got set on fire. It was squealing, but I didn’t want to help it. After all, it tried to kill me.The zombie died right in front of the cave.

“Suffer.” I said.
I walked back to the house. Lee was busy making a pumpkin pie. “I found a pumpkin, egg, and some sugar cane.
“Cool! Can I have some I asked.
“What do you mean, sorry?”
“You don’t deserve it.” At that moment I went angry.
“Whoa dude calm down,”
“Oh, no-one.”
“Look man I’m sorry!”
“Okay, the pie’s your’s.”
“AWWW YEAH!” I gobbled the pie up. It was delicious. After breakfast, I took Lee the the cave.
“Pretty freaky, eh?” I asked Lee. He agreed. Should we walk in? Or should we not? That was the new question. I walked in. I had plenty of torches, and the sword that I used. It wasn’t that scary, the cave. In fact, I even found some iron! But as I was getting the goods, A zombie ran at me.

I searched for my sword, and I saw a zombie pick it up.
“WHY DID I THROW MY SWORD LIKE THAT WHEN THE IRON CAME!??!” I screamed. When it seemed like I’d get slain, Lee came for me. He shot an arrow at the zombies. That made them even angrier, but they were further away.
“Dude, c’mon! Run out the cave!” Lee yelled.

For some reason, I knew that trouble was still to come. I was right. The sun had gone down when we were in the cave, so when we came out the zombies kept following.
“So,” I asked. “Any bright idea’s?”
“Nope. Not one.”
“I’ve got one.”
“RUN!” We ran so fast that it made Usain Bolt look like a rock. But the zombies didn’t give up up. They ran at the door, trying to break it.
“Any other bright idea’s?” Lee asked.
“Either die hiding, or live mining.”
“Let’s mine!”
“Agreed!” And we went all the way down. Then, we hit a cave. There were zombies. Now, me and Lee were stuck. Zombies everywhere. Nowhere to go.
So what did we do? We had nothing. The zombies ran at us. I was almost paralyzed with fear.

“What now?” Lee asked desperately. I looked down. Of course! We had to dig straight down. I told Lee, and he immediately went down. I followed. The zombies did as well, but by then the fall was too great for anything to survive.
“YAY!” Lee cried.
“We did it!” We were overjoyed. I hugged Lee in relief. Then, something caught my eye. Gold.

“Lee, look behind you!”
“I thought there weren’t any zombies...GOLD!! Let’s get it!”
“What’s wrong?”
“Our pickaxes aren’t strong enough.” We both looked at our pickaxes. A tear ran down Lee’s cheek.
“C’mon,”Lee said sadly, “let’s go.

I felt sad for Lee. Going through all that trouble just to find out that we couldn’t get gold. Then, I remembered something. When we in the cave, I got iron. We could use it to make an iron pickaxe, and get the goods.

I told Lee, and the his pupils went from brown to green money signs.
“Are you alright?” I asked. Lee didn’t answer. He just ran to the gold area.
“I’m gonna be rich!!” Lee yelled. I did a facepalm. We didn’t even make the iron pickaxe yet.

“WAIT A MINUTE!!” Lee screamed.
“This is a pickaxe of stone! You lied to me!”
“We haven’t even MADE the pickaxe yet. Stop whining.” Lee climbed up, and when he got to the stairs, I called to Lee. He turned around. A zombie had a sword and it ran at Lee. He took out the stone pickaxe, and used it to fight. Lee was the better fighter, and it seemed like he’d win. He did. The zombie ran away.

Lee came back inside, but the he ran at me. My eyes followed him. Then, SHUNK! The zombie Lee fought went round to stab me, but Lee sacrificed himself. But because of that, I was in so much trouble.

A zombie with a sword ready to kill. My only help had sacrificed himself, leaving me alone. Defenceless.
“Lee’s lucky that he’s in the afterlife!” I muttered.
The zombie walked closer to me. I didn’t know what to do. Then I looked at the furnace. Then the chest. Maybe I could shove the zombie in the furnace and hide in the chest. No. That wouldn’t work. The zombie had a sword.

Then I looked at the crafting table. The iron pickaxe! It was lying there when the zombie came to stab me. I picked it up, and then it was like one of those action movie sword-fighting scenes. Except I had a pickaxe.

Luckily for me, the zombie had my wooden sword, and soon enough the sword broke. The zombie looked like it was begging for mercy. I felt no mercy at all. I took the zombie to the furnace, and shoved it in.

“You kill my friend,” I said angrily, “I take your life.”

When the next day rolled around, I was slowly walking around the island. I don’t think I could last another night. Then, I heard a boat. My head spun around to the approaching boat.

It was getting closer. And closer. Then, I saw 2 people. My friend Vaifoa. We first met on Minecraft, and now I see him come to my rescue. I took a breath of relief. Time to go home.

But then something bad happened. A stupid squid came mindlessly up and broke the boat. I ran to save my friend. When I got him out of the water, I told him of what happened recently.

He was shocked. I turned back to Vaifoa. The squid was on in head. I helped take it off. But then the island shook.
“What was that!?” Vaifoa asked.
“Probably that active volcano.”
“WHAT!? You never told me!”
“Well hey! I only noticed the volcano now!”
“What! You never noticed a massive volcano which your house is right next to!?” The island rumbled again.

Me and Vaifoa decided to fix the boat. We spent day and night working on it. And by the next day it was almost done, when disaster struck. The volcano erupted. We tested the boat, but it needed power. Where could we get power? From the lava.

The lava got closer.

And closer.

And closer.

The Lost Kid

Once there was a boy named Kristopher. He went to the airport to drop off his dad and his cousins to China. He loved rugby, but he had no money to go to the ball machine. Then he went to say bye to his dad and cousin. Once he said “Bye,” he went to eat mcdonalds.

When he went outside to go home, Kris`topher went to look at his cousins car but they went a long time ago. So he went to his car but they went because they thought he were going with his cousin. So he cried and cried but he won't give up. He knew that his family is going to come back, so he sat down for 1 hour and stood up for 1 hour. He got tired and bored, so he went to the petrol station to use their home phone. When he called his family they said that they were coming now. Then he went back to the airport.

When he saw them he tried to hide but they found him. Kristopher got scared that his mum might given him a smack. But she shouted “Don’t ever do that again please.” When he got inside the car and said “I'm hungry.” Then they took him to KFC and got a snack box. And when he got home they gave him a surprise.

Two Great Vacation Ideas
The Beach
Going to the beach is a lot of fun. At the ocean, you can see colorful fish and different kinds of birds. If the weather is warm enough, you can even go for a swim.

The Mountains
Visiting the mountains is very exciting. You can see beautiful, tall trees and many different kinds of green plants. If you watch carefully and quietly, you might even see a deer, a squirrel, and or a snake. If you feel strong, you might go for a long hike on a trail or even climb to a mountaintop.

Chiefs VS Brumbies

On the lovely weekends it was the finals of the super rugby. It was Chiefs vs Brumbies. It was a very close game because it was 27 to 22. I was going for the chiefs because it had my favourite players in there like Nanai Williams and  Lelia Masaga. Chiefs were down 9-0 in the first 20 minutes. In the first half it was just penalty goals. But then Christian Lealiifano intercepted the ball and then got a try.

Then it was the second half. Then Lealiifano got the penalty, so he kicked for goal then it went to 19-9. 2 minutes later, chiefs got the penalty so they kicked at goal. Then it made to 12-19. Soon it was 22-12, but then on the 64th minute Liam Messam got the try and Aaron Cruden kicked it through the middle of the goal post. So it made it 19-22. 4 minutes later  Robinson got the try and then it made it to 27-22.

The Ugly Duckling

Once upon a time down on an old farm, lived a duck family, and Mother Duck had been sitting on a clutch of new eggs. One nice morning, the eggs hatched, and out popped five chirpy ducklings. But one egg was bigger than the rest, and it didn't hatch. Mother Duck couldn't recall laying that sixth egg.
"Did I count the eggs wrong?" Mother Duck wondered. But before she had time to think about it, the last egg finally hatched. A strange looking duckling with gray feathers. It should have been a yellow beautiful feathered duckling. The ducklings grew quickly, but Mother Duck had a secret worry.
"I can't understand how this ugly duckling can be one of mine!" she said to herself, shaking her head as she looked at her last born. Well, the gray duckling certainly wasn't pretty, and since he ate far more than his brothers, he was outgrowing them. As the days went by, the poor ugly duckling became more and more unhappy. His brothers didn't want to play with him, he was so
clumsy, and all the farmyard folks simply laughed at him. He felt sad and lonely, while Mother Duck did her best to console him.
  "Poor little ugly duckling!" she would say. "Why are you so different from the others?" And the ugly duckling felt worse than ever. He secretly wept at night. He felt nobody wanted him.
  "Nobody loves me, they all tease me! Why am I different from my brothers?"
  Then one day, at sunrise, he ran away from the farmyard. He stopped at a pond and began to question all the other birds. "Do you know of any ducklings with gray feathers like mine?" But everyone shook their heads in scorn.
  "We don't know anyone as ugly as you." The ugly duckling did not lose heart, however, and kept on making inquiries. He went to another pond, where a pair of large geese gave him the same answer to his question. What's more, they warned him: "Don't stay here! Go away! It's dangerous. There are men with guns around here!" The duckling was sorry he had ever left the farmyard.
  Then one day, his travels took him near an old countrywoman's cottage. Thinking he was a stray goose, she caught him.
  "I'll put this in a hutch. I hope it's a female and lays plenty of eggs!" said the old woman, whose eyesight was poor. But the ugly duckling laid not a single egg. The hen kept frightening him.
  "Just wait! If you don't lay eggs, the old woman will wring your neck and pop you into the pot!" And the cat chipped in: "Hee! Hee! I hope the woman cooks you, The poor ugly duckling was so scared that he lost his mind, though the old woman kept stuffing him with food and grumbling: "If you won't lay eggs, at least hurry up and  get plump!"
  "Oh, dear me!" moaned the now terrified duckling. "I'll die of fright first! And I did so hope someone would love me!"
  Then one night, finding the hutch door ajar, he escaped. Once again he was all alone. He fled as far away as he could, and at dawn, he found himself in a thick bed of reeds. "If nobody wants me, I'll hid here forever." There was plenty a food, and the duckling began to feel a little happier, though he was lonely. One day at sunrise, he saw a flight of beautiful birds wing overhead. White, with long slender necks, yellow beaks and large wings, they were migrating south.
  "If only I could look like them, just for a day!" said the duckling, admiringly. Winter came and the water in the reed bed froze. The poor duckling left home to seek food in the snow. He dropped exhausted to the ground, but a farmer found him and put him in his big jacket pocket.
  "I'll take him home to my children. They'll look after him. Poor thing, he's frozen!" The duckling was showered with kindly care at the farmer's house. In this way, the ugly duckling was able to survive the bitterly cold winter.
  However, by springtime, he had grown so big that the farmer decided: "I'll set him free by the pond!" That was when the duckling saw himself mirrored in the water.
  "Goodness! How I've changed! I hardly recognize myself!" The flight of swans winged north again and glided on to the pond. When the duckling saw them, he realized he was one of their kind, and soon made friends.
  "We're swans like you!" they said, warmly. "Where have you been hiding?"
  "It's a long story," replied the young swan, still astounded. Now, he swam with his fellow swans. One day, he heard children on the river bank exclaim: "Look at that young swan! He's the finest of them all!"
  And he almost burst with happiness.
