The Surprise Birthday Paty

Flies hovered around the kitchen, looking for a suitable place to land.
Mrs Stevens carefully opened the hot oven and took out the two dozen small cakes inside. They were to be part of a surprise birthday party for her son, who would be home soon from school. After cooling the cakes by the open window, she began to decorate them with icing, cream and 'hundreds and thousands'. Then she put them onto a large serving plate and took them to the dining table where she covered them with a brightly embroidered cloth over the cakes.
On the table were six cups and a similar number of knives, forks and serviettes. A birthday card with a picture on the front of a large cake with ten candles burning brightly sat at one end of the jarrah table.
Rain began to drip slowly down the drainpipe outside as Mrs Stevens removed her apron and hurried outside to the utility in the tin shed. Soon she was speeding down the rough and bumpy road to the bus stop. She was just in time to see a happy looking Shane waving goodbye to Mrs Johnson, the bus driver.

Going to Church on Sunday

It was the last day of the weekend which was Sunday. I woke up at 6.00 O'clock and there was lightning and thunder. I was scared but then I was tired again and then slept. 

I then woke up at 8.30 and it was nice and bright. I went and brushed my teeth and then ate. I went for a shower and then got ready for church. I was wearing a white pair. My mum came and picked us up and then we went.

They were talking and talking in the car and then we finally got there. I had to unpack the things from the car and I also had to pack the things in church. We were waiting for more people to get to the church and then they got there.

We started the church and it was long. I waited and waited and then we were nearly finished, but then my grandpa told us to sit down and have a meeting. So we did and then it finished. We all had to un pack the things but I went and paid the church.

As soon as I finished paying money for our church and then I went home with my nana and grandpa. We got there and then we had a BIG FEAST!

My Aunties Birthday

During the weekend on Saturday it was my aunties birthday. She turned 27. We didn't buy a cake we made a cake and my uncle made it. He made to small circle cakes and then he made some chocolate whipped cream.

While it was cooking he went to pick the birthday lady. She was at work. My uncle went with his sister and they got her and came back to my Nana and grandpa's house. She got there and she was outside in the rain. "Happy Birthday" I shouted happily and she replied "THANK YOU" and then she came inside.

The cake was ready and we did a little prayer before we eat. It was long and then we finished. I had to help my aunty get the cake on the table because it got bigger because we stuck the cakes together. I put the candle on it and we sang the song first.

As soon as we finished singing the song, I lit up the candles and she blew it. We all clapped and then  my grandpa said "Hip Hip Hooray, Hip Hip Hooray, Hip Hip Hooray, and my aunty was smiling.

We cut up the cake and then grabbed a piece. When we all grabbed a piece we did another short prayer and we ate the cake. My aunty and I got the food ready and we ate. It was takeaway and other things. It was nice and we enjoyed our aunties birthday.

Netball Game

As soon as school finished we had to go home and get ready for netball. It started at 5:55 and we had to be at the courts before 5:15 so we can change. First I went to get Meleane (my friend) and then we went to the courts.

It was 5:15 when we got there and we were worried but then we went to get our uniform for netball and got changed. We grabbed a ball and trained a little and ran around. Before our game was the year 6 team 2's game and we went to cheer them.

We cheered and cheered and then the loud noise went on and that meant the quarter was finished and that quarter was the last one. It was our turn to play and we had 5 minutes to get ready. We warmed up and then I shouted "Red ferns on 3.......1.........2..........3" because I was captain. 

We played and we were doing well. The team we played against was Revelation and Revelation had the ball first. They got it down to there shooter but then we intercepted and got it away from them so we got the first goal. We were killing it.

The game went on and on and then when it got to the 3rd and 4th quarter, they were winning by miles. Hannah (my friend) and I were on the 4th quarter and we were good but all together is better. We were all trying to get up to them but the noise of the finishing quarter went on.

It finished and we had to cheer for them so then I shouted again "3 cheers for Revelation hooray.....hooray....hooray. Then we high fived them and we said good game. The score was..........................................................22-6 and we lost but I reckon we did well.

Lost in a Island With some Friends (Free Blog Writing)

One day I went to the airport and I went to a tropical Island. I was the only one that was going to this Island. I went in the airplane and I was by my self. Me, myself and I didn't go with anyone at all but as soon as I got there, there were only 3 people but including me there were 4.

So there were 2 girls and 2 boys that stayed. There were no houses and no nothing but only trees. The only thing we took was some food, heaps of water so we can drinks it and shower with it and we also took some clothes and soap there.

The 3 friends were playing games and while they were playing I was minding my own business. I was eating heaps and drinking because it was so sunny and hot. I felt like having a shower but there was no where to do it. So we all spread out and I found a house with exactly 4 room. There was a shower there and also it had everything we needed.

I had a nice long shower and then we went out side and played hand games. It was fun. We all went some where because after some hand games we played hide and seek and 1 of them which is Maia had to count and we all hided. I hid some other place and the 2 boys hid at the same place. Maia finished counting and she was searching hard out.

When she gave up she shouted out our names but we were lost. It was freaky and scary because I was by myself and i though in my head, Lucky the boys because they are together. I went somewhere and it was a beach. It was nice but then it got dark and it was getting scary and scary every moment.

I tried going back to the house but it was just to dark I couldn't see. But then  felt the sand and I followed my foot steps. I got back to the house and i saw my friend Maia she was crying but as soon as she saw me she stopped and came to me.

As soon as she finished crying we went inside the house and had a sleep...................It was the morning. We woke up and brushed our teeth and have breakfast. When we finished having breakfast we took some food to find the boys. We saw some foot steps and we followed it.

It was 20minutes later and then we found them. We gave them the food and they were eating hard out. Maia and I told them to come with us back home because we were going to go back to New Zealand. We got to the house and we waited 1 more hour and then the plane got here and we went back to New Zealand. We had a great day.

The Ugly Duckling

It was Winter in a country of NZ, though most of the years it looks pack and pretty but no it is ugly and flat. The wheat was green, the oats were black, the hay was wet, sticky and yucky to roll in. The country is hideous.

Some ducks built some nest under some burdock. The duck made some egg and six of them were grey and ugly, and there were five white ones. The duck was always puzzled about that egg, and how it came to be so different from the rest.

Ducks are not clever at all, and are not quick at counting, so this duck did not worry herself about the matter, but just took care that the huge egg should be as warm as the rest of the eggs. This was the first 11 eggs that the duck has laid.

The mother of the ducklings was very pleased and proud, to begin with and laughed at the other mothers, who were always neglecting their duties to gossip with each other or to take little extra swims besides the two in the morning and evening that were necessary for health.

She kept on looking at the eggs for then a hundred times. With tears of joy she saw two eggs that have crack a bit. Next morning she was rewarded by noticing cracks in the whole five eggs, and by after noon two little yellow heads were poking out from the egg shells. This encouraged the mother so much that, after breaking the shells with her bill, so that the little creatures could get free of them, she sat steadily for a whole night upon the nest, and before the sun arose the five white eggs were empty, and ten pairs of eyes were gazing out upon the green world.

From now on the duck had been carefully brought up, and did not like dirt, and besides, broken shells are not at all comfortable things to put your buttocks on or walk on it. So she pushed the rest out over the side, and felt delighted to have some company to talk to till the big egg hatched.

There was one duckling that was very beautiful and the rest were just ugly. And then beautiful one made the whole world clean and good and the pretty one had help its siblings not get teased by other ducks.

Nanas Birthday

It was friday and the bell rang. I had to go home early to take my cousin to the airport. She was going back to Samoa. Her name is Sose and she came from Tokyo in japan. Sose arrived here at 8:00am and she left at 5:00pm but the airplane was leaving at 7:45.

We got to Mangere just in time and we were playing with each other and then a hour later we had to take her. My family and I took some photos with her for a reminder. A few minutes later we got to the airport and we were waiting for her other cousins to come and pick her up and take her to Samoa.

They got there and and we said bye to her. My aunty was crying because Sose is her sister. She gave her a long hug and a kiss. Then we all gave her a hug. As soon as she finished hugging all of us she went back and hugged her sister for long.

She left and then we left to go back home and do my Nana's birthday. As soon as we got there and all of our cousins were there and the house was really packed. My two uncles went to get my aunt.

they got here with my aunty and the cake. The cake was HUGE!! We did a prayer to my nana and it was long. it finished and my family was just talking and talking until they called them out to come and eat.

First they called the kids and we went. Our food was from the takeaways. It was the tray full of sweet and sour, egg thing with mixed veggies and more. We also got some chicken.

The adults came and ate but they ate on the table. The kids had to get there food and go at the front. It was funny and awesome. After we ate we got some cake. I had to give the cake out to the people but it was my nana first.

I went all around but I didn't get a cake so i went at the back and ate it. When we finished eating the cake, we ate some pie. It was delicious. We all finished eating a lot and then my cousins left. As soon as they left, we ate the leftover and saved some for the morning.

We put the left over in the fridge and then we went to sleep. It was an awesome day!!

The Hare and the Tortise

Hi, My name is Lazy Head and one day I was minding my own business, eating my grass and then a mean speedy hare came and called me names. Like, cabbage head, lazy and other names but I really didn't care.

Lucky a fox saw me and the hare, and he came along and replied back to the really mean words that the hare was saying. Then the fox asked me and the hare if we could have a race and they got ready, and we raced and I was crawling as fast as I can and I came first. “Wooooohooooooo” I shouted!!

Another day Speedy was leaping around and I was just nodding my head for no reason. Speedy bounced to me and said "Come on you old lazy thing is that all the exercise you take just nodding all day long? He was amazed that I don't nod my head off to sleep!

I couldn't reply to what he said because my mouth was full of cabbage and I was chewing very slowly. While eating my cabbage the fox popped out of the hedge row and he scratched his flea bites and said “Did you know that the tortoise has Hibernates?”

“Hiber what’s?” Speedy asked. “Hibernates,” The fox said again. It means that he goes to sleep for the whole winter.” "What, sleeps for the whole winter" The hare said. "He might be the laziest creature on earth" Said the hare.

It was easy to mock me. I couldn't bother replying back to him because I was just chewing slowly. But the friendly fox who knows it all stood up for me. 

"Mostly He will be around when we are both gone. When it is pass 100 years Tortis can still be
around" Exclaimed the fox.” TO BE CONTINUED.............
