Duffy Show

WALT:Follow the structure of a recount to produce a piece of writing. 

On Monday Afternoon there was a Duffy Show . It was the first ever Duffy Show for 2015. As soon as the bell went for lunch time to end we went and put our hats away in our trays and lined up again outside. Then we followed our teacher to the hall to watch the show. It took a while to settle and get started because everyone was talking and some of the senior classes came in late.

As soon as everyone was at the Assembly and everyone was settled they started the show. Duffy started the show by walking towards the stage. After that the two other girls came from behind the wall. Then they started to sing the Duffy song, and introduce themselves to all  the students.

The show still continued and it was starting to get stuffy and hot. One of the girls name is Sienna. she acted as a girl who doesn't like to read books. It started raining and Sienna just finished school. She couldn't go in the rain because then she would get soaking wet. She couldn't go in any shops because she needed money to be able to go inside.

Then the other girl named Antonia came from behind the walls and a garden fairy. She told everyone to sing along with her. So we did so.  While we were singing it was time for me to go and do ‘Road Patrols’. So then i went, and that was the end of the Duffy show.

Description: This post is about the Duffy show. Our task was to write a recount and add as much detail as possible.

Paua Shells

WALT: Follow instructions, and complete tasks to a high standard.

This post is about my new reading group that I am in for 2015. My group is called the Paua Shells. I made a presentation to show you all about Paua Shells. It was a interesting text to read because I didn't even know anything about Paua shells. In this presentation I learnt how to make it look nice without doing any backgrounds or themes, but just pictures and writing.

My holiday Highlight

In the Holidays i went to my cousins 21st Birthday. Right on that day was also  my brothers birthday, but sadly he had to work. It happened at Gengys, Botany ( it was lunch). My cousin is a big fan of Naruto, and Naruto is like a hero to him. So the theme of his birthday is a Superhero. His Birthday was on the 24th of December.  

Early that morning on Tai’s birthday we went shopping for some costumes. First we went to G.I Mayfair Place. It was stink because like there was like hardly no costumes. So then once we couldn't find any costumes in G.I we went to the warehouse at Pakuranga. I didn't really know what costume to wear so i just like walked around and looked around.

Everyone has found their costumes but not me and my sister. So then we went home and my Parents just wore like normal nice clothes, my older sister Sa dressed up like an Egyptian.
I just wore nice clothes. Once everyone was ready, we hopped in the car and drove to the restaurant.

Once we arrived we had a opening and we ate. I dished on my plate some pasta and hot chips. I went and sat next to my sister.  Once i ate the pasta it was like yuck as, it was disgusting. Later on we sang Happy Birthday and Tai received his special 21st Key.

So that was a fun occasion that i enjoyed in the Holiday’s.
