Hockey.


My new sport is Hockey.
It is a very cool sport to play and for anyone who is in to sport.

My first Hockey game is in 2 weeks. The best thing about it is that we all get our gear 1 week before the game so we can practise and get use to it. We only have practise once a week which is going to be quite hard for the team.

Did you know part of your gear, you get a brand new Hockey stick as well? I got a silver one which is really cool but everyone gets different colours. I think my Hockey stick is the best out of all.

I am so excited about my first game ever because I have never played a cool sport like Hockey before. This is exciting because it is a rough and challenging game. I think this is going to be such fun for the team and I.

I can't wait until my first game and I hope we win.

As you can see this is a picture of me and my group standing here with our compound word sculpture. If you want to know more stuff about this keep on reading.

Do you know what a compound word is? A compound word is two words put together.

Here a some clues to help you out a little:

1. You can see it at a bowling alleys.
2. It is a royal person that wears a cape.
3. He is also quite special too.


Do you want to guess the compound word??
Write me the answer and I will write back to you and you can see if you have the correct answer.

My long trip to Napier!


On Friday the 4th of June I had to miss school because I was going to Napier. I was going to Napier with some of my church and youth and also my Nana. We went for long weekend. The reason why we were going to Napier was because we got invited to do a youth rally there. We went by bus and it took us 8 hours to get there so we got there at about 2pm.

Finally we got there and we got shown where we were going to sleep. We slept in a Marae and when we got in there we saw that half of the Marae had got taken up. I had to get me and my Nana's beds ready for tonight. As soon as we finished getting our beds set we rested and the we found out that we had an opening church at 6pm. All of us ran to have a shower and got ready. Suddenly we received a black bag with a badge saying Keep Moving Forward. It was time for the opening and we all went to the opening and that went on for 3 and a half hours.

Church was finished and we all had to eat our dinner in the kitchen and the foam plates had barbecue in it and it was scrumptious. It was time to go to sleep and tomorrow was another long day!!!
