Worst Day Of Her Life

Alexis was 18 when her whole life fell apart, here is her sad horrible story. Alexis Lived in a small town in west FairVil, home of King George. Alexis had a hard life living with 3 stealing younger brothers. George (was the youngest), Ralf (the middle child) and Jack (the oldest). Having no parents to look after them made it worse. Each day they got into more trouble. A week ago they stole from the veggie garden they got five slaps on the bum with the ruler, then the butcher oh that was worse they had to stay awake all night with no food and water. For their next heist they managed to get a piece of gold from the gold mine, they had to work 3 days straight working in the gold mine. But lucky for Alexis she got to go away a lot considering she had to go to every town selling raw bird, or rabbit, or whatever she had hunted.

One day while Alexis was riding back from her hunting in the woods, while passing the castle, Chase the guard stopped her horse and spoke to her “Lady Alexis I have bad news for you", Alexis looked worried but let him carry on. "Your youngest brother ran out of the castle with gold me and mike tried to stop him when the oldest boy came and killed mike, then the other boy tackled me to the ground, but I managed to kill the two oldest boys but the youngest one got away”. A single tear dripped from Alexis s eye, when a question came to mind. “Where is my younger brother” she asked “he ran away into the woods after his brothers died”.

Alexis thanked Chase, and grabbed the reins of her horse, and galloped off crying to herself "this is the worst day of my life!".

We are explaining about what you need to ride a bike and how to ride a bike.

What you need to ride a bike By Riley
Welcome everyone today I will be explaining the things you need to ride a bike. Bikes are super fun
but there are a few things you need before you start riding your bike.

The very first thing you need is a bike. Then you need to make sure it is the correct size that fits you.

Secondly, what you need is a friend or parent to teach you how to ride a bike (Don't hurt yourself).

Next you need to get a helmet or if you already have a helmet that is even better!

Soon you will hopefully know how to ride a bike so now you need to put on some sensible clothing depending on the weather. If it is sunny outside then you can wear shorts and a singlet. If it is cold outside then you will need to wear a warm jumper and some long pants to bike.

Lastly you need to have fun and ride away.


I am explaining about how to ride a bike

First you need a bigger sibling, your parent or a parent guardian, to help teach you how to ride a bike, you will need a adult to hold one of the handlebars and also the back of the seat to help you balance.

After that, if you have been able to get the hang of balancing then you can start learning how to move the pedals. First the adult will hold the bike and you will learn how to pedal. You will need to move your legs down and around, which is how the pedals move which means the bike will start moving, and
that’s how you ride a bike.

My tenth birthday

I had the best birthday party down in Hawke’s Bay. Waking up and jumping out of bed, I was really excited about what I was going to get. I got dressed and jumped into the car and we drove off to my Auntys house. We arrived at my Auntys house dressed up all fancy for the exciting day.

I opened the door and said "hello" to everyone and everyone said "happy birthday" back to me as I walked into my cousin’s bedroom. My cousin asked me if I wanted to open my present from her and I said, "yes please" taking it out of her hands and very quickly ripping the wrapping paper off of the present to find one of my favorite books, written Thea Stilton.

All the guests were meant to start arriving at 1:00pm, it was 11:30am so the guests would arrive in 1 hour and 30 minutes. My Mum was getting the food ready with my Aunty, while my Dad, sister Rubi and I were blowing up the balloons. We were about to hang them up outside. After hanging the balloons up, my Mum put some snacks out and we were allowed to snack on the food while we waited for the guests to arrive. The guests started to arrive. One by one they came in through the door.

Everyone said "happy birthday" to me and I said "hello" back. Everyone came outside because it was a beautiful sunny day. While the adults were having something to eat and drink my Dad helped us play some games. First we played pass the parcel. My sister Rubi won. Then my friend Nadia and last my cousin Jai won a round. The next game we played was musical chairs. I won, then my sister Rubi won again and lucky last my friend Nadia. Since my other friend Layla didn’t win we gave her a present with a few lollies inside.

While I was wrapping the present for Layla, it was time to open my birthday presents from everyone. When I was opening the presents, my cousins walked in and gave me my present, I got spoiled. I got a Samsung tablet with a case from my sister, Mum and Dad. They also gave me 2 candles. The scents were vanilla and grapefruit. The last present from my family was a bake set. While I was opening it, the funniest thing happened. My sister Rubi was covering the paper on the front and it said "Happy birthday. We have to share this present". Everyone there started laughing and my Aunty said "ripped off ".

After opening all my presents, my Mum walked out with an amazing chocolate cake with 10 candles lit on top while everyone sang me “Happy Birthday”. When they finished singing, I made a wish and blew out the candles then I cut everyone a slice of cake. It was delicious and it was covered in lollies on top.

After the cake we just played around until everybody decided to go home. I had such a great birthday with delicious food and heaps of fun games. I can’t wait till my birthday next year.

Art and Technology days

 Art and Technology days

Wow! Room 5 had an amazing first day of Art and Technology today! I'm loving watching our kids getting to try out some new skills and there is so much collaboration going on in our classroom at the moment. Definitely quite a bit of resilience going on too with how easily those stiches fall off the knitting needles huh!

Check out the photos below of how we collaborate (work together) in Room 5!
