Writing about swimming

Swimming Writing

Yesterday afternoon was room seven’s first swimming lessons.  Lucky I remembered to take my change of clothes. The instructors were Joseph and Emma, there supervisor was Pam.  The water was up to my chest chest about 4 feet high, 5 meters wide and 30 meters long.

We were split into two groups, group 1 for beginners and group 2 for the advanced swimmers. My instructor was Joseph, he has a foreign accent with an American twang.

The first skill that he taught us was floating with a board, this will help the swimmer stay afloat rather than sinking or drowning.  I guess if one was lost out at sea, floating on a board will make it easier to find if there was a rescue call-out.  I also learnt about floating on my back, dolphin diving and streamline.

We were not allowed to kick underwater. I really enjoyed floating on my back, I found it relaxing and a nice way to calm my nerves.  The hardest part of the exercise was trying to concentrate because there were too many of us in the pool and everyone is demanding the instructors time.

I truly believe that swimming is a good activity and it's good to prepare me for water safety and awareness.  I also think that to improve my own water safety skills I will benefit from taking one-on-one swimming lessons.

Mothers Day Writing Term 2 2015

Mother's Day Described Writing
I would be lost without Lucy, my mother and guardian angel.  She taught me little things like how to be polite and respect adults.  I trust her and she's very important to me.  

My mother loves me very much, she encourages me to think for myself and to make good decisions, although she knows I won't always make the best choice for myself.  My mother is always encouraging me to follow my dreams, she's the voice of reason and helps me get through my bad days.  She helps shape my values and personalities.  

I appreciate my mum for her hard-working nature to provide the best for my sister Maxine and I.  She makes the time to listen to me and I can talk to her about anything and everything.  She puts up with my sometimes naughtiness, but still managers to remind me who the boss of the home is.   My mother is a practising Catholic and is very active in the faith, such as choir, communion minister, Sunday school, parish council and food-bank delivery to needy families.  A very proud Tongan, she makes sure that both my sister and I do not forget our roots.  Learning to speak the language, some of the tradition helps me understand the importance of my heritage.  

My mother is a giggler like me, she enjoys a good laugh in a social setting socializing with her friends.  The story telling and laughter goes on for hours into the night.   

It is in my mother's nature to help people in anyway she can.  When I look into those brown eyes I know I very happy to be her son.  When she brushes her lovely brown hair I often say to myself, mother you gave me everything but you never asked for anything in return.  

I appreciate my protector, guardian angel, she's simply the best!

Holiday Writing 2015


Holiday Writing

After the Easter Vigil Mass I waited at home for my auntie to pick me up. I was waiting because she was going to drop me off to Massey out west. During the ride I was so excited to see my cousins because the last time I saw them was last year because I slept over there house and stayed over for Christmas.

Finally at last got to the destination and saw my cousins outside just talking and playing rugby kicks. We got off the car and we helped to get all the food out of the car and my bag that had my clothes inside and then we all went inside.

We all had a little prayer and we prayed the Rosary. After prayers my cousin’s asked if I want to play Ps3 with them and I answered “ sure lets play.” First game we played was Black ops 2 Zombies. The map was called Green Run Tranzit Zombies.

It was kind of harder when we got to round 15. But unfortunately we died at round 25 because my cousin tried to revive me but there was a zombie apocalypse. So the zombies surrounded us.

We got bored playing to much so we changed the game to Fifa 15. My cousin played as Bayern Munich and I played as Real Madrid. I lost 3-0 because I have not played this game for a long time.

Then a few more minutes my auntie told me that she would have to go now because it is getting a little late. It was around 11 o'clock when we all started to sleep. I slept in the lounge with my 2 cousins. They are Alex and Sam. We woke up and we went and brushed our teeth then came and made us toast with Milo. After we got to go outside and play rugby. It was 2 on 2. It was Sam and I. The other Team was Alex and Steven.

I really enjoyed going to my cousins house and on the next holiday I hope I get to go and have another sleep over.

Farewell to Halamehi

Dear Halamehi , 

Breakfast club was always there beside me because when I don't have breakfast at home It is always waiting for me at school. During Holiday Program you teach us how to cooperate with others. No one with that amount of energy can run a Playgroup for over 10 years. You always give bread to the desperate families. In the office we will miss your comedy show.

These people who are standing in front are the ones that were chosen to represent there school. I felt proud because we were lucky to see the people who have travelled all around the world.

Writing Assessment Term 1 2015

My experience of the Hokulea at Pt England Reserve.

On Wednesday we went to the Pt England Beach. They came in a boat and we all sang the Waiata song and we where all told to stand up.

The first thing I saw was lots of buses , students , parents and teachers. I can see the water following each other like they where marching left right left. They had some students from Pt England to say a few words.

There where over 2,000 students at the beach. The schools that attended there was Pt England , St Pius X Catholic School , St Patricks School , Tamaki Primary School , Tamaki College , Stonefield , Glen Brae and Te Kura. After we had the welcome speeches we had to go and shake hands with the crew of the Hokulea Kanu. They said “ to run and smack there hand as we run past them.”  

The first school that went was Pt England. We waited so long it was like waiting for the bus to come. Second went St Patricks they went so fast it was like we did not even see them , Third went Stonefield they were a little faster , Fourth went St Pius us , Fifth Te Kura School , sixth Glen Brae , seventh went Panmure Bridge School , Eighth went Tamaki Primary and last was Tamaki College but they went for some reason.

After we all have went our school came to the field and waited for the bus and the others were getting ready to walk and we were getting ready to go on the bus. Then the bus driver told us that we can use two buses to go back to school so we went and got the others that were about to walk.

So we were all lucky to go on the bus back to school. We all got back to school at the same time. We were all exhausted and I was so tired I can not barely walk.

On the second week of the holidays we had a movie night. It was held at my aunties house. The first night was so cool! It was amazing. We picked so many different movies to watch. We even watched 'The Lovely Bones'. It was scary! But then we all fell asleep! I even had a nightmare about it! I dreamt that my sister had been hanged on a large rope and my mum hanged beside her! I screamed and woke up and started crying! But then I realised it was all just a dream. More like a nightmare!

Then we had a dance competition. It was girls against the boys. I was so excited because I knew that the boys will win! So we got to work! Firstly we had to choose a song. We chose "Turn down for what!" It was a hard song to dance for but we got there it the end! We had dance moves that involved jazz, hip hop and even style and swagg! Then we performed it to the girls. I was nervous inside and shaking on the outside!. 

I had alot of fun during my holidays it was the best day ever.


Today in we learnt about music notation's and we  also learnt about a treble clef.

Holiday Recount

My prayers were finally answered to go to Napier. We booked our tickets to Napier.

During my awesome holiday I went to my aunt's house at Napier. Once we got there it was so hot it felt like the temperature was over 100 degrees. We got home I jumped out of the car and ran straight into the pool. But my aunty said “ that I will have to eat outside because I am wet.” Then I replied “ ok.”

My aunty took a lot of pictures and posted it on Facebook. Over one hour we got so many likes on our pictures that my aunty posted.  

On the last weekend at Napier we had to make a choice either to go to Splash Planet at Hastings or just to have KFC for dinner. My choice was to go to Splash Planet and my cousin’s and my sister chose to have KFC for dinner. I was so angry at her but I had to just accept it.

We came back on the bus back to Auckland it was boring but very emotional. It was very fun spending time with my cousin that I don’t really see. It was the best holiday ever.
