Aaaaahhhhh!! Term Three's almost over !!!!
This term has been an outstanding Term, with all the different types of sports I’ve been in, and also having to participate in Cross Country.
A lot of things have happened this term. We’ve had Netball Prizegivings, League Tournaments and even Cross Country races. Every Wednesday we’d probably have Kiwi Sports, and for the past few weeks we've been having Netball sessions with Donna. Having these sessions also help us with what we can achieve in our actual teams.
My highlight for this term would probably be our Netball Prizegiving. Which was held right after Cross Country. Why? Well actually I got awarded Best Sportsmanship for my team.
I think that I have achieved one of my goals which were Self Managing. Which was part of finishing of tasks properly. Also creating movies and finishing it on time.
I’ve really enjoyed this Term. Learning different types of writing Topics, and reading journals about Earth. Overall I’ve enjoyed this term.

Every year our school has cross country, and this year the tracks were harder. It went from year 1- 8. Aaaaahhh!!!! The 11th of September was the day. We’d come to school in different types of colours. I came to school in the colour Green Mataatua. There were other colours Blue (Tainui) Red ( Te Arawa ) and Yellow (Takitimu)
When Mr Jacobsen called out the year one boys we all got so excited. Watching my little brother run too, was quite an exciting experience. He was also representing Mataatua.
While waiting for our turn, I started getting hotter and hotter. Finally Mrs Nua asked us if we wanted to move to another spot. Eventually we heard Mr Jacobsen call out the year 5 boys.
Filled with nervousness, I headed off to the start of the race, just before Mr Burt called out the yr 7 girls. Butterflies hit my stomach, and my legs started shaking. BAANG! Mr Burt slapped the blocks together.
Huffing and Puffing I ran as fast as I could. It was actually the fastest that I’ve ever run. Running towards the gates I stopped and took a very long breathe, as I said to my friend “ the tracks are too loonnggg!!”
It had came to the end of my first lap, while struggling to get around for my second lap. Finally I had a friend to run with. It was Allanha, and we quickly ran down to the finish as everyone was cheering for us.
I can’t wait for next years Cross Country. Running in the year races too. “ GOOOO MATAATUA” I said while the year 8’s were running.

To the Prime Minister (John Key )
I as a student, am writing this letter to let you know that plastic bags can pose a bigger problem than climate change. The reason why I think that we should ban plastic bags are because it’s killing our sea creatures.
Did you know that a man called Charles J Moore the captain for the US Merchant Marine fleet and founder of a leading oceans research group did an in-depth survey on the Great Pacific garbage patch. He said that he was staggered by the increase of pollution.
The reasons why I think plastic bags should banned are that it can kill sea creatures. How? Well when the plastic bags are drifting through the water a sea creature can swallow it which causes it to choke then die.
Therefore plastic bags are even a bigger threat than climate change. Did you also know that people from other countries drive around New Zealand, and probably think that our country is messy because there are plastics flying around the streets and in the sea.
So the main reason I think plastic bags should be banned is that it kills our sea creatures. It’s also bad for the environment. That's why I think you should ban plastic bags.

Why should younger children exercise everyday? Well, wait its actually good for your body.
One of the reasons that exercising is good for your body is that it can help you get fitter. For an example athletes need to practice and work hard everyday to get fitter and have a placing in the Commonwealth. Did you also know that when you exercise it helps your brain.
Another reason exercising is good for your body is that it can help with sports. Which is mainly about how fit the player is for that sport. For an example if there were a unfit player in Netball, the team would probably have problems winning. When you are fit you’ll have more energy than an unfit person.
But why don’t people exercise? Besides having medical problems. Like asthma. Although exercising is good for your body, it can help with your brains. Besides that it also helps your Bones and Muscles.
Younger kids say exercising is Fun. Actually every kid does it. Kicking a ball for an example is a kind of exercise. Which helps your muscles in your legs.
That's why exercising helps you. Therefore if you exercise you can also lose eight in between weeks.
