Jordenne's Birthday

This very day (September 23rd) is my friends very own birthday. She has turned 12 and I wish her all the best. "Happy Birthday" I shouted as soon as I saw her! God be with you and enjoy this day of yours, now that its your birthday.

Well, you are another year older and you haven't changed a bit. That's Amazing because you're perfect the way you are. Have a happy day with many more year to come.

On this special day, I wish you all the very best (and I mean it), all the joy you can ever have and may you be blessed by the lord today, tomorrow and every day that is ahead of you.

They say that you can count your true friends with one hand but not the candles that will be on your own birthday cake. You've been an amazing friend to me so have the most of it! HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

Election Vote

This year was the Election year and you had to vote for a party and also for a candidate. The votes were to change the PM (Prime Minister). There were over 10 parties you could vote for, but you could only pick one party and one candidate and only 1 can win.

That Saturday we were in Mangere and the National  had to gather up and go into separate places like scrutinisers and we just had to sit there and smile at people. I was with my aunty and we were in a place that people had to vote.

Later on that day until 5:00pm there were more special votes than the actual votes but it still counted. We waited till the clock had hit at 5:30 and then we had went back to where we had assembled. After all that we went back home and got ready to go to the Viaducts Events Cantre for all to check who won. (This was only for the National people).

Nationals plan was to actually give more teaching most of the disabled ones. There also looking to bringing free doctors to check on children under the year age of 13. Also to still pay parents while there off for 18 weeks. There also trying to get constructions people to build more homes!

Labour was to also pay the parents that were on leave for 26 weeks but they will still get paid. Also if the party Labour were to win, David Cunliffe would of been the Prime Minister. They would also leave you money alone and will pay the bills by power companies.

I was predicting that labour would of won now that Eminem sued John Key, but I was wrong after all. National still won and John Key is still PM, so THREE more years!

Cross Country Recount 2014

I was extremely anxious as our annual school event came. We would always practice, practice and practice. I wasn't nervous at all, but as soon as our Cross Country hit, I got butterflies.

Our whole school assembled at the netball courts, just near the outside toilets by the field. We gathered to get ready for the year 1 boys to have their run. It started at 1:00pm, but just before they ran, the house captains had to do their house cheers.

As soon as all the year 1 boys to the year 5 girls finished it was our turn up next. “I’m scared” I explained as I was shaking, but Mr J already called up the year 7 girls. We waited for 2 minutes till the year 5 girls passed by.

Get ready, get set, BANG! As the blocks hit each other. Jogging slow I was coming last, but then I pasted a lot of girls and it was still our first round. I ran as slow as I could so I could have enough energy to run as fast as I could when i’m near the end.

I got to my second lap and so far I was enjoy it but was really tired. I caught up to my friend Asena who I was actually expecting to come first but she was just in 6th place. I told her that I’d stay with her and that i’ll also cross the line together so we were near the end.

So far I was beating Asena F. But then I just stopped for her and we crossed the line coming in 7th place. This was her very first time she came 7th because she has always came 1st every year she started running the cross country.

Film Festival - MTV

Film Festival is coming up and we have recording some of our parts. My part is being in the MTV and our song we used was Super Bass by Nicki Minaj and we had to dance to it. But we got ours moves from YouTube and it was by a choreographer.

We could only dance to the chorus cause most of the song was sort of inappropriate. There was only 5 of us (Sela, Leila, Josephine, Ata and I). We had to be in a row of 3 and the 2 in the front. We took a while to learn the dance but got it in time and we enjoyed it.

To see our you have to go to Sylvia park (Hoyts) and go to the Extreme screen when its film festival day. Trust me, you'll want to watch it, no more hint just wait and see.

Plastic Argument

My name is Iron. I attend Pt England school and I am concerned about the amount of plastic that is in the ocean/sea. We are discussing how the sea has been treated and how the plastic is polluting the sea.

Plastics should be reduced, reused or recycled. This is due to it killing so many sea creatures. If you didn’t know, plastic is one of the main things that have polluted our sea. It makes a big difference to the sea and its dangerous.

Its poisonous and the accumulation of rubbish has been compared to a dump. Can you imagine that? Did you know it comes together and makes a vast dump because the wind blows it together and is put into the gyres? A gyre is a twirly bit in the ocean.

Nowadays plastic bags are dangerous. It goes into the sea and it kills the sea creatures because there trying to find food and they eat the plastic that is poisoning them.

And that the reason why you should ban plastic!

Exercise Argument

Introduction: Children need to exercise everyday to transform into becoming healthy and to develop.  Exercising is one of the most important thing to do in your life, not only that but dieting and eating the right nutritious food.

One of the main things of exercise is getting fit. Its changes your appearances and ability.  A sedentary sort of lifestyle is bad for your health and you won’t develop well, your have to move a lot and once you exercise a lot you can also become flexible.

Furthermore, exercising makes you become better at sport because you have the agility to run or to catch someone. Its makes you perform well because you have strong bones and exercising looks after your weight.

You need a lot of energy and strength to keep performing, its also good for your body and muscles. Losing weight is not about exercising, but you also have to diet and eat healthy. You develop faster because you're not likely to get sick and have diseases.

Kids would always exercise to achieve their goals and do want they want to do in the future. Its makes your lungs and heart expand your endurance.

Storyline Festival Reflection

The year 7&8's left to the Vodafone Events Centre. What for? Well we were leaving to go and see the storyline festival like I mention in my earlier post. We went to see the 4 authors I also mentioned. Juliette Mciver, Catherine Mayo, Jill MacGregor and Paula Green.

Two of my favourite authors I saw was Jill McGregor and Juliette Mciver. Why? Because Jill McGregor had shown us what she got from different other islands. She chose to write books because she was inspired by young children from the islands. They told her to write a story about what she did.

Juliette Mciver was my second best author I listened to because she rhymed a lot in her books. She read us one which was Queen Alices Palaces and there were heaps of words that rhymed. It was about castles and the illustrator drew different castle from different countries.

If I were to present at the storylines festival I would tell them what inspired me to write book and if I was good at writing and spelling. I would also say one of my favourite authors and inspire other people to write book.

Chapter books, rhyming books, children books or any other book. I also wanted to find out how old they were when they started writing books and if Jill McGregor remembered any of the childrens names that inspired her.

Storyline festival was fun and big thanks to the authors that presented. You were so inspiring with the rhyming and storytelling. All of you did good reactions to what you read and I enjoyed it a lot!
