Hauraki Plains Cross Country

Last week on Monday it was Hauraki Plains Cross Country. I was really nervous! Halfway through the day, it started POURING down with rain! Everyone was huddling under umbrellas and some people were running! Luckily I wasn't! The rain finally stopped just as I was about to run. It was hilarious as we ran down the small slope, everyone was falling down and sliding in the mud! Even I did at one point! In the end I got 9th place, not into Thames Valley but I am still proud of my efforts!

Week 5 reflection

This week I enjoyed....

Cross country! It was kinda hard, especially the big hill! It was also very muddy and slippery! At the final little bit, I was neck and neck with Jesse, and then Jesse started sprinting really hard at the finish line and she ended up coming 4th, and me 5th! So I made it into Hauraki Plains! I am so proud of myself!

I also enjoyed Friday room 7 because we started investigating careers we would love to do when we are older. We had to think of 3, and look into what school subjects we have to take and what degrees are required. My top 3 are...

  • Journalist
  • Author
  • Teacher
It was really fun!

Wake me up- Ed Sheeran

This is my favorite song- Wake me up by Ed Sheeran

I should ink my skin with your name
And take my passport out again
And just replace it
See I could do without a tan
On my left hand,
Where my fourth finger meets my knuckle
And I should run you a hot bath
Fill it up with bubbles

'Cause maybe you're loveable
Maybe you're my snowflake
And your eyes turn from green to gray
And in the winter I'll hold you in a cold place
And you should never cut your hair
'Cause I love the way you flick it off your shoulder

And you will never know
Just how beautiful you are to me
But maybe I'm just in love
When you wake me up

And would you ever feel guilty if you did the same to me
Could you make me a cup of tea
To open my eyes in the right way
And I know you love Shrek
Because we've watched it 12 times
And maybe we're hoping for a fairytale too
And if your DVD breaks today
You should've got a VCR
Because I've never owned a blue ray, true say

I know I've always been shit at computer games
Because your brother always beats me
And if I lost, I go across and chuck all the controllers at the TV
And then you laugh at me
And be asking me
If I'ma be home next week
And then you lie with me till I fall asleep
And flutter eye lash on my cheek between the sheets

And you will never know
Just how beautiful you are to me
But maybe I'm just in love
When you wake me up

And I think you hate the smell of smoke
You always try to get me to stop
But you drink as much as me
And I get drunk a lot
So I take you to the beach
And walk along the sand
And I'll make you a heart pendant
With a pebble held in my hand
And I'll carve it like this necklace
So the heart falls where your chest is
Now a piece of me is a piece of the beach
And it falls just where it needs to be
And rests peacefully
So you just need to breathe to feel my heart against yours now
Against yours now
Maybe I'm just in love when you wake me up
Maybe I'm just in love when you wake me up
Maybe I fell in love when you woke me up

Week 4 Weekly Reflection

This week I enjoyed...
Tech, because we finished making our drawstring bags, and I got to paint mine. Mine is yellow with a blue flower and a green flower and it has Soph on it. 
Next week I am looking forward to...
Cross Country! It is on Monday and I have been training for ages so I hope I make it to Hauraki Plains!

Mileage book

This is my new mileage book:
This term I started to read “The Dead of the Night” It is by John Marsden and the second book in the Tomorrow series. In the last book, 7 teenagers went camping out in the deep forest where no-one’s ever been before (Called Hell) and when they came back they realized they had been invaded. They took everything they needed and returned to hell. Now in the second book they are still in Hell, waiting for 2 friends to come back from the hospital (It is still running) Because one got shot while they were out in the city. I can’t wait to read the rest!

My poem

This is a poem I made about my dog Millie:

Her eyes glow in the daytime light,
Her paws dig with all their might.
Her tongue licks your lovely lips
Her long legs jump, run and skip.

Her ears flop up and down,
Her fur has spots of light brown.
Her tail looks like it got a fright,
Her nose could sniff and sniff all night.

Even though she is naughty,
My dog makes me so happy.
I am very glad to have her here,
Cause’ she makes me smile whenever she’s near.

Week 3 reflection

This week I enjoyed playing handball in PE with Mrs Kennedy. I have never played Handball before and it is really fast and fun! 
I also enjoyed watching the HPC play "The Itallian Straw Hat" It was really well done and very funny!
This week I learned how to sew properly! In sewing we are making bags and I learnt how to thread the machine and sew straight.
Next week I am looking forward to playing handball again!


The Olympics have started in London! So far NZ have got a bronze team medal from Equestrian, A bronze from rowing and.... A GOLD FROM ROWING!! It was won by Nathan Cohen and Joesph Sullivan, who were coming 5th in the double skulls, then in the last few 100 m, they sprinted up to the front! I am so proud to be a kiwi! More rowing finals are tonight, and soon it is shot-put and Valarie Adams will be competing, so hopefully more Gold medals to come!
