On Thursday we are flying from Christchurch to Tauranga. We are going to Tauranga for Mums friends weeding. We are going away for 6 days. We are staying at a hotel with a pool. I’m excited to go on holiday because I have only been to Tauranga when I was 18 months old. The weeding is on the 5th of December and we come home on 8th.We get 4 days of school. 2 this week and 2 next week.
One day a boy and his Father went hunting in the hills for deer. When they were driving up the hill he felt really ill. But his father said we are not going back so you will have to deal with it. So They went further up the hill and they saw a deer so the boy grabbed the gun and had a go at the deer. BANG! Then the gun shoots and the deer falls to the ground very quickly. Then the boy said I feel better now because I have shot my first ever deer. I love hunting.
Last week while the year 7 and 8 s were at tech. The year 6 s did some fun stuff. On Monday we just did normal stuff We did our story starter about the meerkats. But on Tuesday we did writing then after lunch room 1 and 2 swapped. The room 2 kids came into our class to do ukulele and we went to room 2 to do gymnastic.

Then we did the swap with with room 2 again and we did gymnastic again and I did a hand stand for the longest. Then on Friday the year 7 s and 8 s were back.
THE ROAD TO THE WORLD CUP!!
In Africa, on a hot sunny dry day in paradise, the meerkats were sleeping. Then they woke up to check on their special fruit. The fruit was pink with a green leaf on top. The special thing about this fruit was that the meerkats had been waiting for 6 months for the fruit to be ready and now it was. But then a vulture suddenly appears.
One of the players from the vultures team grabbed the fruit off the big tall tree with his sharp claws and flew high in the sky. This was the vultures rugby practice for the day. This was his fitness practice but in the air. This was the fastest he had ever had to fly for his fitness.
The meerkats are sprinting after the vulture on the hot sandy ground. They catch up with the vulture and make a chain. One of the meerkats gives another meerkat a lift up so he can grab the leg of the vulture. They then hold each other’s legs and make a big chain right down to the ground. However, the meerkats get taken up in the air by the vulture and the meerkats fall out of the sky. The vulture loses his grip of the fruit when the meerkats fall out of the sky. But the meerkats catch the fruit and pass it around because they don’t want the vulture to snatch it. This is the meerkats passing practice before the big game. The meerkats continue to fall to the ground quickly.
Then the vulture snatches the fruit before it hits the hot sandy ground. He looks back at the meerkats and he sees they have stopped chasing him and he turns around and opens his eyes and he hits the big bulky cliff and gets squashed like a pancake. He drops the fruit on to the ground.
The meerkats,who had landed safely, grab the fruit and pass it to each other. The kicker for the meerkats takes the drop goal over the big wooden posts to win the world cup for the meerkats against the vultures and he got the kick. The commentators yell “The meerkats have won!!!!!!!!!!”
Walking down the big hill following our instructor and my group to the bottom. We had 9 people in my group. Were wearing a wet suit with togs underneath and singlet then over top we had shorts on and a PFD and it stands for personal flotation and it is like a life jacket. device and a helmet. Feeling the breeze coming at my face. Walking across the slimy wet rocks felt amazing. The sea salt in my mouth when I jumped in tastes yuck . The barnacles were everywhere on the rocks and the barnacles also gave you good grip. The rocks were sharp. Jumping off the papa rock felt amazing and scary at the same time. We swam in a part of the water called the washing machine. It took you round and round the water. Walking on the rocks there were mussels heaps of mussels but they were small mussels. The mussels felt hard and they all were stuck together. Putting mud on our face in the afternoon was fun because we got to put mud all over our face.You could hear waves crashing together. You could see heaps of cliffs and rocks and also some hills. You smelt sea salt the whole time and you smelt it the most when you jumped in. The island we were on was a medium size island. Heaps of people kept getting stuck in seaweed. Because there was sea weed everywhere. The instructor showed us these shark eggs that had drifted into shore off the seaweed.
On the first week of the holidays I was working on the farm all week feeding calves and shifting stock and doing fences and all the farm stuff. On the second week of the holidays I went to my grandparents on Monday and went until Wednesday . We went to the pool on Monday and Wednesday. On Wednesday I saw Henry and we played basket ball with a few others and I don’t know who won but I keeped getting dunked on by Henry. Then for the rest of the week I just went on the farm. On Friday we weighed calves. That was my holiday.

In keyarakey u have to hit a barrow and thats how you get points. IN Tchouckball you have to it a next to get points.
MY famous hero is Dan carter because he is the best kicker ever. He is my hero because he is a first five and that is what position I play and I like him because he is good at all kinds of kicks He is also my hero because he does lots of line breaks and lots of good moves. I want to make it to the All blacks like him one day and be the All Blacks first five.
On Friday I had to go to my brothers class room 3. In room 3 we helped them with their work and I helped the with there poems and spelling and I went to the library with them. In the library I read a hunting magazine with some of the kids there room. Then in the afternoon we did painting with them and they made blossom trees. They made the blossom trees by using there hand arm as the trunk and use there fingers for the painting.
My experience in lock down was fun because we live on a farm. In lock down I would quickly get up out of bed to do my homework so I could go out on the farm. In lock down we only had to do 2 hours of school work instead of 6 hours. The benefits of Lock down. You got to go on the farm and we only had to do 2 hours of school work.The negatives were we couldn’t go anywhere and we couldn’t see our friends or go to their houses. But I loved lock down because it was fun in particular.
