Silia's Narrative Writing

Water parkImage result for dreamworld rides boat
One day my family and I went to Dreamworld. First we went to buy some KFC. When we got to Dreamworld, it wasn’t open because four people had died in a boat.
They died because the boat flipped over and hit the. So after that we went back to KFC and ate our bucket of chicken.

After we went to KFC we went back to the park, we had fun when we were at the park. At the park we were playing tag and hide and seek.

Christpoher's Olympic Narrative

On the  1st of July I went to Brazil. I went to Rio De Janeiro so I can go join the olympics.

At the stadium “I saw a lot of people” they were “cheering” already. The stadium was humongous.

I went to the place where you write what you compete it is called check in. I said “I want to compete in the 1000m run.” But I didn’t know what to do?

I said “I am representing Tonga. I was representing Tonga because they haven’t got a medal.”

Everyone was cheering loud because they saw Usain Bolt. I said “I cannot compete with Usain Bolt he is too quick.”

Then out of nowhere when I was practising my coach shot me with a bow and arrow and destroyed my Iphone 7. So I couldn’t call the ambulance.
The ambulance had to come from the hospital because there was blood dripping. But there was an ambulance near by so they came and helped their favourite athlete.

Then there was lighting so it was canceled and I was all better so I went and got my gold medal. But then the next day I competed for the 1000m sprint. I was versusing Opeti, Palu and Diego. I could not beat Opeti, but I can get in a tie with Palu, but I can beat Diego.

My manager shot me and there was thunder so it canceled for tomorrow. I was all better and I had a tie with Opeti. So Opeti and I came first and Palu was second and Diego was third.

Olympic Narrative!

Olympics Narrative

On 29 of August I was at the 2016                                                                        Olympic Games. It was my turn to sprint in the 100m race I was  versing 6 people. I come from the country called New Zealand and the other people that I was competing was the Tongans,USA, RSA, Mexico, Brazil and Great Britain.

When the sprinters were changing for  100m sprint they had to run around the course five times, then they have to cross the finish line. When the sprinters came out to sprint the 100m run there were lots of audience cheering for their own country.

It was time to sprint. The starter had to shoot the gun which meant that the runners had to run he Shouted "ready,set...Go" we ran fast as cheetah. Diego cheated, he was cheating by lying that he broke his left leg. So paramedics came and took him to the hospital Rio has ever had. I came 1st,Christopher came 2nd,and Diego came 3rd. We won our medals.

After that people went back to their homes to have a rest and everyone was happy.

Famiy Trip to Samoa

On Thursday I woke up and I was excited because I was  going too Samoa. I brushed my teeth and washed my face then I put gel in my hair and cream on my face. Then I got changed to  go to  the airport.


My little  niece Lyka came because she's going samoa too. Then lykas mum was talking with my big brother.
Lyka’s mum’s name is Victoria. Victoria and Lyka had to  go home and get ready to  go Samoa too.


When everyone was ready we waited for my dad to come. He arrived late and my mum said after we finished packing our clothes we can have McDonald’s at the airport.



Before we left too the airport we  drove my brother to get a Go-pro video camera from his friend. There was one movie on the camera called The Australia Movie. My brother told me that he was gonna make a video named Family Samoa Trip.

When we finished eating  we went to security check your bags. It was super boring and my big brother was also bored. When we finished checking our bags we waited in the waiting room to get into  the plane.


A man spoke through the speaker and he said gate 8 to Apia, Samoa is now open. We were finally going into the plane.  My brother told me to take your hats off when you are with that man scanning your ticket. We walked down and we saw a man, he asked me if I was excited then I said yes I am excited this is my first time going on a plane and going to samoa.


Our seat was number 26 we walked past the front seats because we were going to the back. We later found our seat .
So we sat down and we took a video on the gopro we were lip syncing and when we were finished we just waited.


It was just 2 hours we waited and the speaker said we will start our flight now so turn on your cell phones to airplane mode so we can have power and do not put on mobile data that will cause trouble then we did all of the rules so we moved backwards in the plane so my dad said take a video because you are next to the window so take a video the engine was going louder and louder and I was excited then we went 2000 meters up and it was scary but I saw a big traffic and when I came back my mum said she was in the traffic but the story didn't end so my brother his name is jerome timu. He was playing minecraft and he made a big machine that when it's night the big hall way turns on and when it day it's off.


Then the speaker turned on and it said you may put your seatbelts off but I didn't heard so I was talking all the way when I saw the sun it was half way down. I told my dad can I play on your phone and he said no and I said but it doesn't need internet and stall no and I told jerome then he said dad give it. It doesn't need internet so he said where. then jerome did all the work and my dad gave me the phone because I wanted to play Minecraft and it has mods in it there is rain diamond mod,lucky block mod,pokemon mod, then I did all of the mods.

I looked at my window and I saw the sun nearly going down I stared at the sun and it was moving down and I told jerome and my dad and also my brother was in the plane. It was cool that's my first time seeing the sun moving down. I was playing and playing then I had to go toilet then jerome wanted to go toilet so we had to go at the back. I went I went in first then the toilet was small the sink was very close to the toilet so I just had the number 1 I was finish I went out then I went in my spot I waited then jerome said ohh can I sit next to the window and I said yes so we swapped seats so I played on his tablet and he played on my dads phone.


I looked at the window and it was night it was all black then I only saw a red light it was beeping like in 4 or 5 seconds. I saw in Minecraft his light hall machine then i did a new world I built a house with wooden planks then I pranked jerome I said ohh look samoa I see a little part of samoa then said where in a big fright then i said there there. Then I said I was just joking then I was laughing loud then jerome said ehha then I said shame you just got pranked hahahahahaha. Then I started playing on his tablet then jerome said nah no tablet then i said yeah i don't care because you gave me the phone haha shame and dads phone is 50 present and your one is 30 haha. Shame on you. So i have more then when I said haha. Then he said I want my spot back then I said yes so I went and I sat on my normal spot.


I saw a yellow light then it was samoa and also I ate doritos and coke. We were at samoa then the speaker said tight your seat belts and lean back so we did it and the plane went down and when it land it bounce and my head and jerome's head on the roof then I saw a big building we landed.


We got out I thought samoa was this hot but it's warm benjamin said and my dad we walked to the ticket lady to scan our tickets after that we went somewhere to change jerome's money because his mum gave him 200$ because she was crying and jerome was a little crying we all changed all our money and went where all the people was waiting so we walked out and there was like over a 100 people there then we walked through the people and I saw my uncle pio he had a huge beard last time when he came to new zealand he had a short beard.

Then uncle sonny said who wants to sit next to nana eva then I said me so we packed and went then uncle paid the airport man then we drove off we saw villages pigs and turtle pond.
Then we saw dogs and shops. When we arrived there we saw a cool hotel but the rest family stayed at another hotel so they didn't have a pool we had a pool. So we just got changed but my dad left my bag over to the  airport and I didn't even know because I was to busy play on the bed because we had our own bed next to each other and my brother had his bed at the far end so we just played and took a video so my dad said oh we're gonna go too pio’s for a visit we went by taxi when we arrived there the  dogs were  barking then  uncle pio said get away then I came inside I saw a lady and she said hi Etuale and that was aunty louise she was uncle pio’s wife.

Gymnastics

Every Tuesday we always have Gymnastics, so we can get fit and healthy.
We have a coach his name us Jerron. He also has a helper and her name is Kate. They are both from America.
Firstly we started to do shapes. We did L shape, The Straddle shape and lots of other shapes.
Secondly, Jerron showed us how to do the obstacles. He showed us the Bunny hops, Handstand and the Cartwheels.
The people that were in my team were Silia, Akesa, Thomas, Dianne, Kalise and Christopher. I loved doing the handstands and the skipping ropes. But I had a problem, I had an argument with malia. I didn't mean to make her cry. But I said sorry so she forgave me and she said sorry too.
Lastly Jerron showed us a cool trick with the hoops. He rolled the hoop to the wall then it rolled back to him.
When Gymnastics was finished we went back to class and we did prayer time.

Gymmastics

On Tuesday morning it was a sunny day. I went with my class to Gymnastics.
The first thing I did was skipping. It was fun because I was skipping and singing the alphabet. I went on all the obstacles.
My favorite obstacle was skipping and cone jumping . I liked cone jumping because I can hop side to side and up and down.
My class and I had a lot of fun. I enjoyed Gymnastics.
We had to warm up before starting. We played Band-aid Tiggy. I had fun and my friends had fun as well. Most of the boys enjoyed it too.
Our Coach's name is Jerron he is American he is always funny. Jerron said he had a lot of fun as well. Jerron told us he enjoyed having us every Tuesday.

Gymnastics

Room 3 and I lined up in two lines at 9.45 in the morning. We were getting ready to go to the hall to do Gymnastics.
We started by playing Tiggy. After playing Tiggy we started Gymnastics.
First we learnt how to go through the obstacles. We had to do Hula-Hoop Skips, Cart-Wheels, Handstands and Backward Crawls. Gymnastics was fun and I was getting tired.
Later I had to learn how to use the skipping rope, it was hard. I learnt how to skip later on. After skipping the coach asked us to stop the obstacles. The obstacles were so fun. We then said thank you to the coach for teaching us then we lined up in two lines and went back to class.

St Patrick's Day

On St Patrick's Day we had Shamrocks and a soul friend.
We went into church and we saw lovely Father and lots of adults and some babies. We then sat down on a chair next to our soul friend and we promised our soul friend  some stuff but Father had to say the stuff we promised to do.
Later we sang a St Patrick's song and father said it is a feast and that when mass finished we would have a shared lunch.
When mass finished my soul friend did not want to have shared lunch because he only wanted to have junk food so I went to play.

Gymnastics

In the hall Room 3 did Gymnastics. Thomas showed us the first part. He had to do a Bunny Hop he had to hold for as long as he could. Thomas couldn't hold. After  that he had to do Bunny-Hops over the cones. He had to put his hands in the hoop and Bunny hop over the red cone. Next he had to do the harder Bunny Hops over the blue cones. He did the same thing as well.
Later on Thomas did backward crawling on the benches. He also did Zig-Zag Hopping over the cones. At the end Thomas fell down, everyone laughed. Silia did the second course. She did Bunny Hops and Forward Rolls. She also did Handstands and jumped onto the platform and jumped off into her landing stance. She then ram to the Skipping Rope and she had to do five or ten skips. Then is was my turn to do the third obstacle course. I did a Forward Roll on the triangle sponge. Then I did jumping on the blue platform. I had to jump on then jump off backwards then Bunny- hop. Lastly I had to put my feet on the table and have my hands on the mat.
I love to do gymnastics because I love fitness and I do lots of hard work.

My adventure

In the afternoon there were two kids walking in the forest. They were doing their exercises. Their names were Siu and Mira. While they were running they reached a two way they didn't know where to go, left or right. They decided to take the left pathway. Siu and Mira were lost, they were scared. They reached reached a lake, Siu and Mira refilled their water bottles. Mira went for a swim, she didn't know that there were Sea Snakes and Crocodiles in the lake. She got a big fright when she heard a really big splash. Siu and Mira ran far away from the lake. When they were safe Siu built a big house out of leaves and sticks. They stayed there for three days. Later that night Siu and Mira noticed some light, they followed the light. When they reached the light it was the police. Siu and Mira were now safe.

Hiking Trip

On bright, cold morning my dad, mum and I were going hiking. We packed our bags and put it in the car's trunk and went hiking. By the time we got there we went to a man, he showed us how to follow the map for the hiking track. The man told us there a different colours for each level. The man also showed these electronic sticks, he showed us how to use them. While we were on the track we saw a wild Deer. After an hour there was this long brown grass and it was very hard to electronic stick. We looked everywhere for the stick. When we found the stick I ran and I put the card into the stick. Later we went to a t.v which showed us how long we had left until we reach the end. We came second to last. We talked again with the man from the beginning of track and then left home.
