Group 1 can you please come up and shot the bow and arrow. Matua Josh silently asked them. Who is in group 1? He loudly asked everyone. ‘ Xavier are in group one i answered. Who’s in group two? Arwyn and Tahurangi. So everyone knows what group they are in? yes we do.

Ces you know i think i might shoot somebody in the leg if they are standing out in the target zone!!! ‘Group 4 it is now your turn to come up and shoot’. ‘Ces that is me and you we both have to go up because it is our turn’.  ‘OK’. Tyissa exclaimed. let’s go now before we miss our turn. Ok. ‘ If you are going to aim for the board pull it back far and let go’. Matua Josh  exclaimed.

As I walked over and asked matua Josh.  ‘ We are having lunch then you are going to Whaea Verbina.

Urapukapuka Island By Malia

The wonderful breeze of Russell winds through my long brown hair as the cold water laps around my feet. I stare at the dock and The people waiting for the fairy to take them.
Soon I spot the bout that we are about to aboard and start lifting the gear out of the car.”heavy heavy heavy”. my sister moans.”it's not all, Heavy heavy heavy”. I pass my sister a small bag of togs.” there I bet you can carry that”. she moans again. I slowly carry a big bag of clothes towards uncles bout.”YAY”! I dropped my bag and raised over towards him.”I missed you”.
We clamped onto the old bout and I helped put the sails up, and we were off! uncle started singing a song,” 101 bottles of rum on a bout on fell of drop drop drop, 100 bottles of rum on a bout”. it went on for ages until, “ yay where here”! we started putting stuff in the dinghy and paddled towards the beach.
Me and kaia(my sister kaia) helped put up the tent and blow up the air beds soon it was getting late and we were going to bed soon.”wow my first camping trip at urupukapuka.

The Beach Trip by Kaushal

               πŸŒžThe Beach Trip🌞
1:Dolphin Boat
3:Water Fight

Yeah! We arrive at Pahia to go swimming but we first stop at the dolphin  boat. The boat was like a rocky road bumping all over the place. We see dolphins popping out of the sea like a jack in the box. My dad curves over the railing to get a picture. The sun is a giant heater burning our skin. I pose like superman on the tip of the boat. The whales yell at the top of their lungs. 

Splash! We stop our journey and we proceed to the beach. We build a gargantuan sand castle. We go to get our towels but suddenly… our castle gets struck by giant waves I rush to save it but I was to late.
We walk to the car to get our water guns. I plan my attack.

Splash my dad gets sprayed with a gallon of water with by water gun.
I try to hide under the bush to sneak attack him and avoid water.
My dad spots me and I get sprayed. I’m a sea monster walk out of the bush. I try to get revenge but I fail and trip. Now I am a sand monster trekking along the beach. We hike back to the car to end our adventure.

1:Picking It Up

I wait for my turn in excitement. It’s my turn I pick up the bow I slide the arrow in. I pull the string back in hope I can get the bullseye. I wait for Luke to pick up his arrow to see if he can hit the bullseye.

I aim with one eye so I hit the target. “No!” I yell. I've missed my shot horribly. “Remember You Have two other arrows” Matua Josh reminds me. I load my next arrow I aim as well as I can Bang!

Yes! I yell I hit the bullseye and I happily retrieve my arrows knowing one arrow will stay on. I give my bow to the next person and sit down. I hope nobody beats it.

Jump By Te Aroha

1.rope/ foam pit hoop 3. dodgeball

I stepped onto the wooden stairs and   patiently waited. I carefully leaned against the hot tin wall as the people in front of me  somersaulted into the foam pit. I slowly waddled onto the wooden stairs, the employee handing me the rope. I clutched the rope tightly and pushed off. When I landed my feet dug deep into the sea of square shaped foam balls. Struggling to get out I waddled to the side and waited for my sister at the top of the foam pit.

I marched towards the line of people waiting at the basketball hoop. The hoop was filled with bouncing teenagers. When it was my turn I boinged on the green trampoline with the foam dodgeball in my hand. I leapt in the air, stretched and threw the ball into the hoop.After my successful throw I patiently waited for my sister and carried on to the next activity.

I strolled towards the sign saying dodgeball on it, with my sister following close behind. I stood behind a green rope and patiently waited for my queue. The employee unclipped the green rope and pointed me to the right. I marched to the right and leaned against the springy trampoline. The employee blew the whistle and my teammates and I raced towards the foam dodgeballs sitting in the middle of the room. I tightly gripped the slippery ball and threw it to the opponents. After winning the game my sister and I headed into the direction of the parents waiting area and stumbled towards the exit.

Hi my name is Malia

I do have a big sister but she lives in Spain, the only time we get to see her is at Christmas, she always misses my birthday. My birthday is in November, my little sisters is, well I don't actually know it's some time after Christmas I think. My dad lives on a boat and my mum lives in a house in Kawakawa. My favorite food is lasagna, I only get it as a treat but I always get mum to take it slow or it might under cook then it would be very cold it's happened before that's why I'm always helping my mum with it. I NEVER want under cooked lasagna again never ever ever again. I love to invite friends over for sleepovers and birthdays although my last birthday in November 2014 it rained hard so all we did was, pass the parcel, musical chairs, pin the tail on the donkey, opened presents and had a huge sleepover with everyone that came to my birthday! Well, not everyone but most people anyway. AND THAT'S ALL ABOUT ME ME ME!

Partly Cloudy

  Partly Cloudy
Wispy clouds hover through the rose sky. Stalks soar in the sky landing on pink fluffy clouds. Magically the cloud zaps a pile of  clouds turning it into an animal figure. The cloud then wraps it into a plain white sheet and carefully hands it over to the stalk. The stalk glides through the sky carrying the plain white sheet to a dog kennel. while down below a dark grey cloud sadly peeks above to see pink rosy clouds making impressive figures. A bird landed on the dark grey cloud. The nearly featherless bird stood there wings wide open waiting for another delivery. The cloud got a pile and magically zaps it. A baby crocodile appears snapping and munching the cloud’s finger. The cloud handed the bird the sharp crocodile cautiously. The stalk reluctantly gripped the sheet by the tip and carefully hovered all over the place with the baby croc.The stalk flew back more featherless than before. The dark grey cloud moulded another pile and zapped a baby ram. The ram smashed into the stalk leaving the bird a painful gutt feeling. The cloud tied the ram into another plain sheet and and flew off into the distance. A bald patch sat upon the bird’s head. The

The stalk birds happily flying out of the sky to house and to a kennel, to doors delivering of people's babies and animals babies. The babies are made from cute happy chubby clouds from the sky  that are made of love, smiles and happiness  and with the pinkness of a rose. There was only one cloud that had the sadness of lightning and the darkness of pitch black  but he still had a little smile on his face, he would make dangerous animals like sharks and porcupines.

Home Sweet Home


Dim and dark streets and tall abandoned houses that form shadows around the place. Suddenly there's a flash the house falls  and moves and makes its way to the highway and gets in the countryside as  another house notices it so they make their way together to there destination.

Suddenly one of them broke his walking stick  so the other one kindly went and broke another houses walking stick and went back to his friend they make their way to Antarctica and there they see a campervan gliding across the ice one goes and plays with the campervan but the other one watches them and makes his way to his new destination by himself with his  dog kennel he barks he sniffs and he digs holes where ever he wants. they see a house and make their way inside  then the other house came back but he didn't make it back in time his friend had died.

Partly Cloudy

Partly Cloudy
The bright soft clouds wander in the sky. One dark figure stands out in the sunset a lonely cloud makes weirder things than usual. Zap! He zaps clouds to make babies. He turns dogs to crocodiles and cats to sharks. One stalk turns up to take his mistakes to a new owner over and over again hoping the day would be better.

The Stalk has had enough he flies away to another cloud knowing it would be more safe. The dark cloud is crying rain on the land below. He is a waterfall dropping water faster than a V8 racecar. The stalk comes back giving him one more chance. Zap! Bam! He creates a eel but the stalk still stays.

The cloud keeps on trying but can’t do it.  Luckily the stalk keeps on pushing him to get it right.
