Flying Fungi

This might look like a shell to you but it is called a Bracket Fungi, some people call it Shelf Fungi, they are known as poly pores.

The flying Fungi’s are woody and leathery. There are all kinds of sizes, large sizes, small sizes even medium sizes. They stick on the tree, they’re also on the beach.

Once a tree is infected the fungus cannot be killed. The bracket fungi smells a  bit like mushroom, but mushroom’s are softer than the bracket fungi. The bracket fungi are not plants they belong to living things like mushrooms. The bracket fungi usually grows on tree stumps you would never find bracket fungi on a healthy tree.

Smart Footprint

A smart footprint is something that you're not allowed to tell anyone about yourself online like your password for your email or anything else like your address, phone number and your last name.

It’s because people might hack into your email account, call your home, they might come over to your house and do something bad to you and also they might steal your stuff.

Don’t tell anyone your personal details when you are on the internet.  


“Yes it’s athletics now”, I shouted at the top of my lungs.
On a beautiful sunny day we finished our soul friend mass and we vanished to the classroom to get our bags so we could go to the bathrooms and get changed.

When we got to the bathrooms we wore our athletics clothes and got out. I was in Tui’s and the Tui’s team had to wear all red.

Meantime Miss G told the 9 year old people to go to the high jump and all the little kids had to go run. I was very scared of doing high jump, I didn’t like doing high jump because I always hurt my knee when I do it.

When we finished doing high jump we moved on to shot put, the balls are really heavy. We had to sit in our house teams so it went Keas, Kiwis, Tuis and Geckos. I was really scared of throwing the balls because the ball might drop on my foot.

When sat down Mrs.Tui explained to us to be careful with the ball, it was tui’s turn to throw the shot put ball I was first and then the rest was after me when we finished that round Mrs.Tui called out the 4 people who threw the best.

Next it was the obstacle course it looked very boring, we sat down and we started right away. Tui’s had to start first because they were the first ones to get there. When we started we all stood up, our leader was Albert. We started to race and it turned out to be so fun.

Then we moved on to another fun activity it was the beanbag shuttle there were 4 or 5 bean bags lying on the ground and red, green, blue and yellow bags we started and I was the leader this time I had to run with the bag to the end and come back to the beginning and collect the bean bags from there I was the second one to get back.

The next round we started all over again I was the leader again when we started, my team was cheering for me I was happy cause when I got back I won and my team said “YES”! with excitement then the bell rang for lunch we all stopped and ran to the classroom to get our lunch I went to my dad because he had my lunch.

When I got my lunch I had are Keish and are healthy wrap with chicken it was so yummy when I finished my lunch I went with Rosalina and Annalise to practice our running me and Rosalina ran and we had are tie I gave Annalise are head start when we were running when two of us started running I beat her.

The bell rang so we quickly sat down under our shades and they called out for the nine, ten, eleven, twelve and thirteen year olds to come to the racing tracks. There was only one thirteen year old so Miss G said he had to be a twelve year old for the day.  We had lots of fun with the races and everyone tried their best.

It was an awesome day.

This story is about a boy named Stanley, he got bullied at school by this little boy and he got sent away to this place far away called Camp Green Lake.

He got there and he looked around but there was no lake, he arrived in his cabin and saw boys there in his room they introduced themselves to Stanley. Their names where X ray, Zero, Squid and Armpit. Stanley asked why they had weird names. One of them said because Mr Pendanski named us, then after a minute Mr Pendanski opened the door and saw Stanley standing there. Mr Pendanski said Stanley’s name will be Caveman.

Then next day they had to dig lots of holes.

I really like this story and look forward to hearing the rest of it.

A Triathlon is an athletic contest that has three different events, swim, bike and run. You always have to train before you start the competition and you need to be fit as you can be.

The triathlon rule is to not ride your bike in the transition area you to play fairly and do not cheat at all times.

You have to swim before you go on the bike that is part of triathlon even though you fall when you finish on the bike you have to park it where it was an take off your helmet and run as fast as you can to the finish line.

Even if you hurt yourself you have to keep on going even though it hurts or it’s sore, you have to keep on going.

Identity means what makes you who you are. We did it because we want people to know who we are and also so I can embrace myself before I embrace others.
