Triathlon Reflection

Triathlon Reflection

How did you feel before the event:
A mixture of being nervous, excited, worried with a hint of doubt. Why? Because I might fail swimming or I might be a bit rusty.

What did you do?
I was in a team and I was doing the swimming for my team. The runner was Sienna and our biker was Adam.

Was it easy or hard?
It was easy at first but then without knowing, I was drinking water from the wakes from the people ahead and that started slowing me down. Overall I was the third swimmer out of the pool.

Do you think you need to improve?
No because I think I'm good enough.

Suggestions for the teachers:
Maybe do a safety check before each event because there was a crash between 2 girls.

Why School Uniforms Are Silly

Why every school should not have uniforms
Some people think that school uniforms are good, other people think uniforms are silly. I am siding with the people that think uniforms are stupid. This document will tell you why uniforms are silly and mufti clothes should be used everyday at every school.
________________________________________________

Uniforms Negative and Positive
Negative
First up I think that people would look like twins if school had uniforms and the teachers say “Be different in your own way” but with the same uniform, well its not easy being different in your own way.
Secondly if you had to go somewhere out of school in the middle of school time and your parent(s) come to pick you up, it might take a while for them too find you through the sea of matching uniforms.
Lastly I think uniforms make the school dull and not colorful because uniforms only have one color, not mufti colored.


Positive

________________________________________________

Mufti Positive and negative
Positive
For start up I’d say that mufti makes the school more bright and colorful.
Secondly Parents won't have to wash the same school clothes when there children can where different types of clothes everyday.
Lastly it would be easier to find friends because sometimes from the back of the person it looks like your friend but he/she aren't (I had this experience).


Negative
People could wear inappropriate clothing.
________________________________________________


Conclusion
So now you know why I think mufti should be worn everyday to school.Even though it has a downside it could be really fun.

Why Red Pandas Red, Black And White

CLICK HERE FOR STORY BIRD!!!!

Many, many years ago there were racoons roaming the lands of America. Each with a different behavior from just sitting there eating to running around wildly.

There was a raccoon named Jacob and with his glittering grey fur and bushy tail he looked like he was in between hyper and lazy. In fact he was in the middle. Sometimes he climbs a tree and eats and sometimes he’s on the ground sprinting like Usain Bolt. One day he was eating some raspberries in a high tree and thought he could fly, so he stood up, spread out his arms and jumped.

At first he was gliding then he started falling. Down, down he went until his body landed in the black and white fur of a fat panda. At first the panda was surprised then started running around in circles yelling “THE SKY IS FALLING, THE SKY IS FALLING!!!!!!!” Suddenly the bright blue sky turned into a stormy grey. Jacob was hanging onto the panda frantically and acting like it was a rodeo. Until the magic came.

Kaden, god of paint and mutation(who looked like a black bear) was liking the scene and got out his red RPG and aimed, then fired. It wasn’t an accurate shot but it hit the pandas head, Kaden was disappointed but lit up with mischief. The god summoned his mutation gun which looked like a sniper. he locked the two animals and fired at the earth.

Suddenly the hazard of the red headed panda and racoon froze like a statue then glowed with gold and magically melted into a ball which floated up to Kaden who had got out a G-daddy. He caught the red colored ball and loaded it into his grenade launcher and blasted it out. There was an almighty BANG and there standing there curled up in a ball was a red panda.

From then on the red panda became a common species in the world.

(Moral: Don’t let mischief get you in trouble)

Assembly Item

Imagine standing up to a whole school with over 500 pears of eyes staring at you. That's what it felt like when we had to do our item on the 6th of June. We had to get to school early to rehearse one more time and we had to sort out our outfits. I was the host. So that meant I had to start it off and end it. While we were rehearsing a fantail visited and wasn't able to leave, so that made me upset.

My heart was pounding against my chest like it wanted to jump out and my legs were shaking like jelly.Nervous of failing my first line in the item, I listened for the light flutter of wings and the sweet chirping of the fantail roaming the hall like it was looking for berries. Then I took a deep breath and then spoke into the microphone “Welcome to the science show, I am Marcus your host for this morning.” Then the Item began. 11 questions in total and 3 scientists for each question. I seemed to calm down a little but I felt sad that a poor fantail had to be imprisoned in a giant room filled with students and teachers with no way out. Then Zayne finished his line as a contestant. Suddenly I was saying “Well that's all we have time for. Thank you for watching the Room 20 Science show. Good bye.” then I started shaking Ben freezing hands like I was rubbing an ice cube against my hand. It was bone shaking scary showing yourself to a whole school as well as doing an item about earth and space.But its possible. I’m glad I made without a muck up except that one of the microphones made the mistake of not working. So yeah, I’m happy.

Winter Poem

(I see) Frozen trees scattered around the lake as the storm starts brewing.
(I smell) Dead fish in the freezing water as the lake starts churning.
(I hear) Wolves howling to each other as they group to attack.
(I feel) The snow splattering against my chest.
(I taste) A cold snow flake that landed in my mouth gives a chill down my spine.

(I think) The Arctic Isn't the place for me.

Haunted House

ghost house.jpg


creeeeeeeeek! I place my foot on the old, rotten oak steps to the stormy grey colored house. Why did we have to go on vacation in this old dump. The 2 trees out front were dead and the porch was covered in cobwebs. But that didn’t stop me from turning the pure gold door handle. Suddenly the door swung open and a gust of rose smelling air impaled my skin. My mouth swung open when I saw the inside. It was a hallway made out of dark brown wood but the side table shoved against the left side of the wall was completely gold! “Well this is a paradise” said my brother Stefan. “Well lets check this place out!”.


Once I found an armor stand with a full seat of steel armor with gold braids smelted in.It fitted me perfectly. Then I found a chest with three pens and an empty quiver. I clicked all the pens and one turned into an axe, one turned into a sword and the last one transformed into a bow. I salvaged those including the quiver because it filled up automatically when I clicked the bow/pen. Then I checked out the bedroom I was gonna sleep in. The cover had a picture of a trident.The symbol of Poseidon, god of the sea. Then there was an actual trident on the left side of the room, with a sleeping black horse with wings. A pegasus. This place is exactly my style. Suddenly the picture on the bed started changing into words until it said something.
The believer of greek will find the answer
to theft or death the wall will fall
the passage of light will one with stand.
It was a prophecy. After all this stuff I get a profecie?
This place is haunted then. But how? Guess I’ll find out soon but first I need to think. The believer of greek should be me because I only believe about Hades and Zeus and all but theft or death? I’ve already stolen some stuff but I did not want to die. Then the passage of light, that should be Apollo or Hera. I’ll search tomorrow, right now it's time to get some rest.


The next morning I got dressed in a shirt with a dolphin on the back and black camo pants. As well as the armor I found including the fur boots. Then I slung my quiver over my shoulder and sheathed my trident on the other side of my back as well as the pens. Then out of the corner of my eye I found a shield. I took that too. “Now I’m ready to search” I thought.


I searched everywhere and found nothing. Until the basement. Besides the house the basement glowed with gold. Suddenly a red diamond came out of the floor in a case on a pillar. Slowly I snuk towards the treasure. The label under it said ‘ruby of Olympus.’ Olympus was the home of the gods. Then something dawned on me. The gods have been so quit because there ruby was stolen. Must of been Hermes, wait, why would he steal the gem to lock himself up? Guess it might of been someone else. Someone who hates the gods. “finally you figured it out” said a voice. But it wasn’t a humans voice. It was like a three headed snake talking at once. I spun around and I found myself looking at a three headed ogre. A hydra.
I think about to get company...

Shadow King Episode 1: Ghost In The Machine

YAAAAAAAAWN!!!!!! It was Saturday morning and I was taking my dog for a walk around the block. I was half way there until my dog started whimpering like he does when he’s scared.I looked around but everywhere was houses except there was some tension in the air. Then in front of us was something that looked like a lost shadow. The thing was hard to look at because it keep changing from a lion, to a falcon to a shark and back again. But it seemed to get bigger because it was getting closer until it was 5mm from my face. Suddenly it entered my mouth but it had no taste but pain replaced it.It felt like I was dissolving into nothing and I could see it was happening to my dog as well. My poor dog was getting hurt! Then the pain stopped but I looked different. A lord made of shadows with a steel sword and my dog looked like he had turned into a shadow with fire.then I realized I should be called something different. Shadow king…

Room 20 Item Recount

Imagine standing up to a whole school with over 500 pairs of eyes staring at you. That's what it felt like when we had to do our item on the 6th of June.

Rock Climbing Reflection

I was about 9 meters up on a climbing wall at flax rock.

My arms are shaking from climbing like I was in the arctic. I was searching around for another rock to  grapple hook onto but the only one was above me. I tried to grab it but it was useless. Then I looked down to see if I could place my foot on anything and my luck was appreciated. There was a murky green stone but then I accidentally looked further down. Everyone looked like the size of an apple! My legs started to wobble like an earthquake. Suddenly everything looked fuzzy. I was coming unconscious! I tried seeing and moving until I started leaning backwards. With one hand on the rope and the other hand glued to the rock it was holding onto. Then I started to feel dizzy like I was drunk. Until my hand let go of the rock and I started falling. Everything looked peaceful. I Imagined a grave having my name on it. But my fall was slow like I was In slow motion. Then I stopped. There was noise. Kids trying to do some rock climbing. I wasn't dead. I was alive and being unharnessed. I tried not to show my fear and I succeeded. I sat down on the bench and tried to regain my sight. It was hard, but I lived. Then I started doing the rock climbing when you don’t wear a harness and stop at a green tape.

Fear Factor

I flung off the tissue that was shading the food in the sea blue colored bowl and I find myself looking at a part of raw tuna. My stomach yelled out NO but at the back of my head thought I had to eat it. So I clawed the slippery thing and my tongue and the fish collided.

Now if you tasted a mushroom pizza with blue cheese, the fish would've tasted 10 X worse.

My teeth started smashing and the tuna started grinding to mush. Then I closed my eyes tight to prepare for the worse and the food went down the throught. I thought I was gonna hurl it back up but I opened my mouth and showed that there was nothing left. When I looked around and I saw an empty seat beside me so I guessed I came second.YUK!

A couple of days later I had my hands behind my back like a prisoner and a bowl of jelly in front of me.GO!!! I smashed my face into the jelly like a lunatic but then used my tongue like a digger and scooped the dessert into my maw. It was like 1000 X better than the fish. I heard a few cheers and in a matter of seconds my bowl was clean and I came first. YAY!

(LIKE A BOSS!!!!!!) :-)

This is what I used to make this:
*Beginning grabs the readers attention by starting at an most exciting bit
* Creating suspense by keeping the reader thinking till the end
* Used exciting word choices verbs (doing words) Specific nouns (name words)
* Used I statements
* No repeated words or sentence starters
* Paragraphs to make it easier to read.

Mystery Person

MYSTERY PERSON


I am a student at Parkvale school in room 20 and reading is my favorite subject.


I have scruffy brown hair like a fluffy brown bear and brown eyes like wet mud. I have nearly invisible eyebrows and a couple of freckles on my tanned skin. Also I’m kind of tall and I have a big appetite like a goat(but I’m not fat).


My age is 10 and my birthday is on December the thirteenth. I am a person that likes animals and greek gods.I like a lot of food especially home made burgers and pizza. My attitude is always different like in the morning i’m tired, between morning and lunch I’m normal, at swimming I’m annoyed and eating is bored. My favorite subject at school is reading(Again!)and my favorite car is the bugatti.


Who am I?

New Zealand Eel Report

The Misunderstood eel


Introduction
You might think that an eel is slimy, slippery and ugly, but this creature is more that meets the eye. Eels can be amazing creatures if you didn’t just kill it. Read this to find out why its so brilliant.


Description
The eel is a snake like fish, there are two types of eels in New Zealand, the long tail and the short tail. Both are native to New Zealand.The long-finned eel can grow up to 2m long and can weigh 50kg. Thats heavier than most year 6 children. The short finned is smaller and lighter. Both eels are dark green to brown and they also have a silver underbelly.  Their fins are near the head so it looks like ears and they have teeth as sharp as a butcher knife but not as big. Perfect for ripping flesh.
Habitat
Both eels live in freshwater and holes in creeks and rivers. Eels also go on amazing journeys from New Zealand to way out in the ocean by Tonga for the summer.
Threats
The threat of the NZ eels are fishers, loss of habitat, pollution, hunters and orcas.
L'orca inoltre รจ l'unico predatore in grado di uccidere uno squalo bianco.
Diet
-Muscovy duckling.jpgGray short-tailed opossum
Eels eat small fish, fish eggs, ducklings, mice, and any carrion that falls in the water.
Life cycle
It starts from the eggs, then it goes too a larva, then glass eel, next is elver and then the adult until they lay the eggs.
Conclusion

So now you see why eels are amazing creatures. Next time you see an eel, take a moment to appreciate this unique fish in its natural environment.

Its Not Easy Being A Wolf

its not easy being a wolf by Marcus Krekeler on GoAnimate

Its not easy being a wolf
Its not easy being a wolf.
Searching for food, chasing rabbits
and drinking cold water from holes in the ice .


It’s hard finding shelter,
keeping warm from the snow and
living with wounds from stepping in traps.
Don’t other animals know
that I have to survive threats
as well?


Also I have too keep away
from human snares and their sight
when the have guns. But I also have to go find help when needed and I get blamed for everything.


Its not easy being a wolf.


When I feel lonely I just wish that some
other animals were my friends instead of being scared of me.Also when I’m hungry, I wish other wolves would come to me with food too have a feast and I wish humans would leave us alone.


life is hard for a wolf.
but luckily some humans don’t kill us,
some humans actually feed us, tame us and keep us warm.

life is a big adventure for a wolf.

The Ugly Fish

The ugly creature
Is this a man eater, a fish eater, a plant eater or does it eat plankton? Is there more than one, can it swim fast and could it be a big threat? Does anyone know?

This thing has 2 massive and fierce rotten fangs as sharp as a blade. The rest were ugly horse teeth. It has dark, deep, brown eyes the color of wet mud and has soaked flesh the color of a brown bear. All bony and tough looking that I wouldn't want to be in a boxing ring with it. The sharp straight fins tells that its a fish. Could it be the threat of the sea?

It stared at me on the wet slippery rock like an eagle watching its prey. Then it slithered away back into the sea its eyes still locked on me. I’m glad it took its reak of dead fish with it because I couldn't hold on much longer.

What will this creature do next? Where will it go?
This mysterious creature will stay unknown, for now…
