Opononi

Opononi was usual enough; it had a store, a beach, a wharf, some trees towering over it, and even an old wooden hall we always went to. My friends and I did what kids do - launched stones into the water, dashed across the sparkling sand, sped after the seagulls like lions hunting deer, climbed the trees, swam or raced, doing nothing important.

Cold Rivers

On sunny days, I like to leap into rivers. As I jump through the air, I fill my lungs with oxygen. While the water pulls me under, goosebumps appear. With my hands, red and wrinkly, I clamber on the the rocks. As soon as I can feel my hands, I swing on to my feet and run to my towel. Throwing it over my shoulders, I crouch. Very slowly I get warm.

Eventually I stand up and head back to The Rocks. When I get to the rocks I hesitate. After a long time of decided if i want to jump, my sister comes up behind me and pushes me. Falling off the rock  I think I see something move in the water. When I hit the water I feel like something is slithering around my foot So I swim as fast as I can and hop out. Once my breath has come back to me, I search the water and find something is in the water. My sister Asks me, “why did you scream?” I replied with nothing.

Nicole is a five story hotel towering above all the rest.

Nicole is a ring tailed lemma hoping about the jungle.

Moment In Time

We have been doing some writing about a moment in time, this is my latest one.

I can see kids splashing around in the murky water. 
It looks like their having a blast out there.

I can hear the waves crashing agent the islands sand.
They sound strong enough to knock one of the Piwaka's over. 

I fell the sea-spray slaps my feet. 
The spray is cold as it smashes agent my feet.


  

Maths

In Maths lately we've been learning about geometry, geometry is mainly about shapes and angles. During  that segment of time I learnt what a nonagon, heptagon and a decagon is, the nonagon has nine sides and nine corners, a heptagon has seven sides and seven corner, and a decagon has ten sides ten corners.
