My Good Friend JayLee

JayLee short black and brown hair, medium brown skin, gorgeous and awesome. Most times she always has a beautiful big smile as her appearance.

When it comes to sports Jay is very competitive, rough and encouraging. For her spare time she likes to crack jokes about herself and her family. My personal opinion on her is that she is very intelligent and is always unique.

JayLee’s interests are Sports, Education, Internet, Singing, Food and Chocolate. Jay’s most favourite interests is Sports, she plays sports everyday. She always sings when she’s bored or has nothing to do. Eating food is her main thing she’s likes to do she loves her food.

JayLee and I enjoy many things together. We mostly like to crack jokes about each other, we also like to play rugby at lunchtimes. The main thing we LOVE! to do is laugh alot. JayLee is my good friend.

Softball Semi&Finals

The highlight for my day at softball was the Semi Finals and Grand Finals. At our grand finals we were challenging against St Thomas Intermediate. We knew that if we Win then we could make it to the grand finals and challenge Bailey Road. My position was “Outfielder”, whenever there was a high ball coming my way my job was to catch it. “Full Game!”  the ref says. It was victory everyone did a great job at their positions.

It was time for our grand finals game, we knew it was gonna be a difficult game against Bailey road. JayLee was our captain she told us “We can’t give up now, we’ve already proven ourselves we can do this, Champions Never Give Up!”.

The pitcher for Bailey road was a professional pitcher she played for clubs. The first batter up was Rita she was one of our strongest members in the team. “GO RITA!” the team shouted, DING! “YAY RUN RUN!” the team shouts and cheers this was really interesting for us. “HOME RUN” the ref says.

Next up was JayLee she had a really strong arm to hit, “GO JAY” everyone shouts. DING! “YAY another Home Run” the team cheers. “Oh No!” it was my turn to bat, I was really nervous. DING! unfortunately I got out. But I was happy that I got to have a turn hitting a really fast pitch.

The game had ended, and everyone was desperate to know who won. “Bailey Road Won” miss replies, “OHHH well done Bailey” everyone says. After a while everyone was moaning that we didn’t get to have our bat. The person who set the field had explain that we won and how.

“YEAH!” everyone screams, Mrs Va'afusuaga says that it is there first time taking two teams to the championships on the same day. When we arrived at school we celebrated with yummy Ice Blocks.

I'm Great At

I Am Still Learning To....

It Was A Hot Day

The sun shone on me from above, It felt like I was blazing in the fire. We haven't even started trails and I was already sweating. “ Woah the sun is on FIRE! ”. The atmosphere was turning into a desert, I was surrounded by heat waves. My feet felt like they were sizzling, just by standing on the ground. Instead of drinking cold and refreshing water from the refrigerator, I had warm water from the tap. My heart was pounding and my legs were exhausted, I’m thinking in my head “I need shade!”. It felt like the sun was sucking energy out of me. The wind gently blew across my face, it was nice and breezy. “FINALLY! training is over”, and I head off for a cold shower.

Writing Sample 2013

This morning we all completed our first Writing Sample for 2013. I have posted it just as I wrote it in the 40 minutes that we were given, so that throughout the Year I will be able to look back and reflect on the progress I have made in my writing. I will post my learning goals from this soon.

It was another day at class and everyone was here ready to learn. “Wait where’s Jay Lee, I’ve never seen her miss a day of school”. The next day I’m sitting in my desk and the bell rings, I’m thinking in my head “Jay Lee ain’t here again”.

I look around to see where Huelo-ata was, she wasn’t here. “Where are my friends”. Everyday people had been disappearing one by one. It was weird, its like they were ghost’s.

Things started to creep me out. I was walking back home, and something catches my sight, my house was gone. At first I thought it was a ‘Sinkhole’ but there was no hole. There was no evidence, I got out my bike and rode around. I’m thinking in my head “What happened to my family, where are they”.

One thing disappears, then another thing has gone, and another, It felt like I was the only person alive. I looked around my school to see if there was anyone there. I looked in classrooms, the hall, the office and the staff room.

“Gosh I’m Hungry” I look inside the staff room fridge and I see a delicious sandwich. I reach out to grab it and as soon as I take a bite, it disappeared. I thought this was a good thing that people was disappearing because I was able to do anything I want, but food disappearing, “I can’t starve to death”.

Ring, Ring!” what is that noise, “Ring Ring!” I open my eyes. “Oh!” I was in disbelief, the whole time I was asleep, “Everything was a dream”. “ Nek Minute my dream comes true” I whisper gently to myself.
