For example I breezed past my elearning task about Mighty Mariners and got
30/30! I couldn’t believe it. Usually in my previous animations I would
get 20 marks and under. It was like a miracle from Heaven!
Another subject I enjoyed was Maths. Some worksheets were quite challenging to
test my skills, but thankfully I used some strategies that Miss Garden
taught me. When our maths test came, I was up for this AWESOME
challenge. I was looking at acing this exam.
In writing , I have made lot’s of impact but I still need to limit the repetition in my writing.
That is one of the things that let’s me down sometimes. This year has been
“THE WRITING CLASS, for me so that’s what makes me good at it.
Like I said before, this year has been AWESOME and quite CHALLENGING in some
areas. I wonder what is going to bring us next year in Pt England year
7? Remember that STUDYING and WORKING hard is the key to success.

I was next but my teeth were chattering and my hands and feet well they were as stiff as dog hair! This was a big challenge for me, because I had done a much smaller one at Totara Springs!
As I slowly paced myself up the steel bars, a confidence feeling came over me. After reaching the top, I was congratulated. With a confident boost,I slowly gripped my feet to the wall and walked down. In a flash of light, I made it to the bottom and conquered my fear!
I punched the air and felt proud of my self and said “Maybe I’ll do it again?

Benjy Marshall is a magnificent player. He still tried to pick up something for the kiwis even at the death door of losing!He is my favourite league player. No one can flick pass like Benjy Marshall. He has great power of speed and most of all his skills just can't be explained. I mean he never gives in and his abilities and skills are just amazing!

As we look back to the previous matches (or highlights) of the roosters, many mistakes were made. A big change and difference was made when the Sydney Roosters took on the Penrith Panthers. This match was crutial to win because it was sudden death match. The Panthers struggled to gain possesion as many errors were made on the their half.

As the All Blacks jogged out of the tunnel, the crowd went wild. As usual, the All Blacks would sing their national anthem and perform their fierce haka. They had tried to steal the attention by performing the haka, but the noise of the fans was thunderous.

Israel Houghton is one of my favourite Christian Singers. He encourages people to love God and his special way of spreading the word of God is through his music that I listen to Daily. I really respect hi songs because many song writers have taken a very long time to write a song! His songs has a strong touch because of the Holy Spirit that guides him in every concert. He is a very good singer and his songs has made people change their ways. He is a great man of God. One of the songs that he sings is "Just Wanna Say and Friend of God. I hope he writes more songs so that more people will come to Jesus.

The day before Cross country, I had a real nightmare. I mean I had almost got eaten by Jake burglar. Okay, I only stretched the truth just a little bit. But honestly I am not going to sleep until morning so then I can sleep in . Yeah!, no one will stop me now.
I pretended like I was sleeping. My great plan is working “ Oh no, I cried, I must of shouted so loud, my mother must of heard every single word I said. I’m toast. I quickly tucked my self in bed and acted as if I was sick. Jake” Wake up, you’re going to be late for your school cross country. “I’m sick! Jake don’t try and lie to me. I heard your evil deed. Oh oh. I reluctantly got of bed, dressed up and walked to school. As I wondered off I heard Mr Burt saying” Cross Country was on”.
As I stared at my fellow competitors my heart pounded fast. I knew that I was going to come last . Looking at some of my rivals, The all stars which were Drew, Drake dagger, and Kane, made me want to give up as the feeling of fear shot through me because no one could match their speed. As I shivered in the cold weather, I started having butterflies. Apprehension had entered me in a very unpleasant way.
I tried playing dead as we stepped up to the start line. I knew I was going to suffer in this disastrous race. I really wanted to give up because I knew everything would turn out bad. ( Well for me only). Bang! went the clappers. I whizzed in front but it wasn’t enough because I still had a long way to go.
A tense feeling had got over me. It had distracted me until “BANG”. I had hit a rock. The all stars had caught up to me and I started to lag behind.
My legs couldn’t stop for I knew I needed to keep on going. Hope was the only thing I needed at this rate. I dished out all of the pain, and got rid of my fear.Every step I took meant I really wanted to win. Even though my legs were going to strain to death,and even though the pain got worse every time, I never gave up until I won. I had learned my lesson of not being negative. So I put my head up and paced my self faster. My legs were pumped and I sprinted past 6 people, like a cheetah.
A feeling of relief came over me because I knew I was going to make it in the top 3 because I persevered hard. An opportunity had awaited me for 2 long years to be in the top 3. And this was the time to take it. When the finish line was sighted from a distance, Vince Dagger( One of my friends that are competing in my age group) had only just took the advantage of winning by a little.
This meant I needed to get over being sluggish and push my legs even faster. As I took a final breath, I had sped past him. My rivals drew nearer and nearer every time I slowed down. Drake had just got behind me of me until I leaped over the finish line feeling glad. I had survived and accomplished another race and came 2nd.
As people congratulated me, I had felt proud of my self.( But really in the inside I was about to fall asleep like snow white!) My legs hurt but I acted as if I was alright. I felt lethargic and I almost fainted! Well at least a hopless situation had turned out pretty well. I didn’t need to have fear, but I needed to persevere .

As we came from our holiday I was surprised to see the staff dressed up funky! I reckoned that Mr Barks(Rm 18 teacher) dressed up the best. My guess is that he was "Eric The Red" viking. Each team in the school had worked very hard doing movies and items.

Polynesian people came to NZ by canoe. Some of them voyaged in a single hull with an outrigger or a double hull.In full length, these canoe's were 15m-25m.These Vessels were made out of planks lashed together and woven sails.

Former All Black "Jeff Wilson "played in the world cup a couple of times in 1998 when New Zealand lost to Australia 21-23. He was known as an unstoppable player. He was a try scoring machine that made players fail to catch him!!!He also was stunning when the crowd went wild after his 38m chase(he tackled the spring bok wing) to save the All Blacks from losing. Jeff Wilson's talent is a natural thing to most people but I think it is super.
These teams are a big stand out for fans who like sport. They have each one more than 2 world cups in rugby.I mostly support the All Blacks because they have been my favourite team ever since I was 5 years old!!!!
Message:I reckon that this game of rugby is a spectacular game but remember to also humble your self to the team that loses because the other team has a lot of hurts in them selves because losing is hard to control even the All Blacks had to try and control them selves after losing to Australia by a penalty goal.

Samoa had a good start to the sevens but in the final they had just lost by 1 try. Lolo Lui wasn't permitted to play for 2 weeks. Samoa had a very good possession in the Sevens but it wasn't good enough to beat Fiji. Disappointingly, Samoa was in a space of shame and sadness. Despite their loss, they still thanked the lord for letting them in the finals.

Over the limit is a week away and some of my most spectacular wrestlers are in it. As everybody knows, John Cena is challenging Batista for the WWE champion.Wrestlers have showed great courage in their matches but some lose but some win and that is life and you have to live like that.
As the world knows, Justin Beiber is famous now.I like his albums and I also like how he creates his songs. I especially like his song,"BABY". As he arrived in Auckland, Everyone was going crazy and the girls were screaming because they liked him. Some of them almost fainted.I was amazed of how a big star Justin Beiber is. I am his #1 fan. The first song that I heard that Justin Beiber wrote would have to be "One Time".
I really admire him for his singing but I also admire him for his attitude but I think that he could do better.I really like him as a singer. Thanks.

"BRRRRRRR" went the whistle and the super 14 match was on live!!! The Hurricanes and the Reds looked confident. This was a tough match because both teams were shockingly good with their team work especially the ultimate "HOSEA GEAR" and "QUADE COOPER"!!!(They are one of my favourite players). The kick was off and the game was on.
Thanks to these websites http://images.smh.com.au/2010/04/20/1341274/quade_cooper-420x0.jpg http://static.stuff.co.nz/1236038659/282/1993282.jpg for letting me use their picture.

BRRRRRRRRRRR" went the whistle and away the game went. The first tackle was made by the Crusaders. Then another and another until a beautiful turn over. Crusaders were showing their strength. the ball went to Ellis, then to Carter until it got to Zac Guilford. He was off like a charging bull.Can any body catch? It doesn't look like. The first person made the tackle but Zac kept going. 1..2..3...4..5 tackles Zac broke but then he got tackled.Andre Ellis passed on the ball until the crusaders scored. I was going wild when the crusaders scored. Daniel Carter converted the try beautifully.

As we were coming from our vacation which was our school holiday, we were shocked by hearing that Pt England school was about to learn about volcanoes which is just for starters. So far on the first day of term 2, I have learnt amazing things!!!! First about volcanoes, there has been lot's of damaging explosions around the world lately. It had struck in Iceland. It has caused trouble because it has been said that passengers have to wait until 6:00am this morning. When the magma shoots out of the crater magma is now called "LAVA". Lava is hot and maybe if your camping near a volcano, you could cook some eggs for breakfast. As the lava spreads, it strongly pushes through rocks. Not long after an explosion , the lava soon cools down and turns in to hard rock. As the puff of ash continue to spread it causes big trouble for airlines. It has been said that not even one plane can survive this damaging blinding puff of ash.It is too bad for passengers I guess. Well moving on

New Zealand(Aotearoa-in Maori languague) and decided to move
into New Zealand which they thought was not owned by anyone and had
a lot of free places for whalers,sealers,traders and merchants.What will happen next.......I hope to be hearing your comments. By Joshua

On a rainy dull day on Friday,we had a video conference with one of the world's famous Nike shoe maker"D'Wayne Edwards!!"It was like a privilege to actually meet a famous guy who makes shoes.I was really nervous because every time I meet people who I don't know,I feel like I'm going to have butter flies and I get on the nerves.As the Webinar was set,the conference was on.D'Wayne told us his life and how he got to be a shoe designer.D'Wayne entered a competition and the prize was that someone would be able to get a scholarship and to help to design shoes.His initial passion was the pencil.His 20 cent pencil helped him draw properly and he even said it was his best pencil!!!!D'Wayne won the competition but as his fame spread out, the people who made up the competition was so surprised as they heard that D'Wayne by the age of 17,was to young to be able to design shoes.He was so happy he won........until he heard he was too young.He was so sad as well as I was sad too.I mean ,D'Wayne won fair in square but rules are rules"!!! The competition winner,thought he was unattainable but his mother or mentor,encouraged him a lot. 7 years before his mother died,she wrote him a card which touched his heart.Even today,he still struggles to read because he still has emotions in his heart. Well as his mother continued to encourage him,his dream finally came true!!!He had persevered and ignored people who said he wouldn't be able to be a shoe designer. There was more than one way to just be a shoe designer.First he had to study,sketch and to beleive.He finally had his dream and made his only school called Pensole which is for teaching people how to design a shoe.He is a really cool guy.Even his garage is full of all the shoes he designs!!That is one lucky man.He encouraged us that everyone has a dream and a gift they can strive to actually make it come true.

The pukeko have enemies that are vicious.A stoat that has sharp pointy teeth,could kill a pukekoe in seconds with just one bite.Stoats are one of their harshest enemies.They have razor sharp teeth sort of what a school of piranhas have.

Hurricanes is my best super 14 team because they have a well talented team.I was sad when I heard that Jason Eaton was not going to play because he had and injured knee.The doctors said that he wouldn't be playing for almost a year,and David Smith has a sore thumb.I hope that they will be back on track and play like they did before.So far the hurricanes have won all their games but still second on the ladder with the blues.The hurricanes are doing so well this year!!!.I hope they will win the super 14 cup this year.So far the bulls team are on top of the ladder.I am sure that the hurricanes can win all their games.Sadly,they have lost to the cheetahs and the Bulls. Hurricanes desperately needs to start winning their games.They need their fans to cheer for them alot!!!!Anyway they have managed to win some of their games."YOU CAN DO IT"!!!
