On the 1st of december class 9 went to league on the field. It was our last session so we get to play are big game. The game was could survival tag you can’t defend or run out of the square. But you can turn around, twist your hips and can’t jump. We had teams to.

The teams were white vs green. I was in the white team. Our couches was Paul and tof. They are very good at playing survival tag. When we started playing we had to be on one side. when they tof blows the whistle and then all of us started to take the tags off.

My team was the winner in the first round. We only play three rounds and we won all of the games. It started to rain so it was
over. We all had to say bye to paul and tof and shake hands.
and then we ran to class all souky and wet.

My favourite part in tag league was when we came first in
everything. I love league it is fun (:

kill animals that what maori people ate a long time ago.

After we needed to go toilet. Then we get to go and eat lunch. We needed to get some air so we went on the grass. and play. I was playing touch, rugby, octopus and midnight with all of my friends. I started to roll down the mountain it was funny.
I climbed up the tree to and looked at all of the kids. I tipped lots of water on me because I was hot.

Then I was so happy because we get to go back in the museum. I was In miss lavakula group. first we went to the  winter garden it was scary because there was ugly bugs. After we went to sea creatures things I saw sharks, fish and dolphins. I saw a tree house and we went inside and a gorilla was staring at me It was creepy. Then we saw are big volcano and it looked real there was lava coming out.

We went inside the volcano room it was fun. We were waiting for the volcano to erupt the news came on and telling us when it is going to erupt. White steam was on the water and rising. Then lots of grey smoke and black smoke was coming out of the
water. It was shaking in the room. Black smoke came In front of all of the houses and
bust it down.

The whole room turned black then it went away. all of the houses turned white. In the water was just a volcano poking out of the water lava was pouring out and lots of smoke.

Punctuating Sports Paragraph

Some sports are in the commonwealth games and there is different kinds of sports games like Netball,
Rugby, Hockey and of course table tennis.

Why the crocodile has no tongue

This story is about A crocodile that has no tongue Fox went to Crocodile to ask if she can borrow his tongue Fox wanted Crocodile’s tongue because She can have a beautiful voice and His tongue was ugly and small. Crocodile agreed but only if he would give it back. Fox sang at the wedding and she had a beautiful voice. She never gave crocodile tongue back because she stilled wanted a beautiful voice and that’s why fox never gave it back I think the moral of the story is give things back when you ask them for something. We are learning to think about what the author is trying to tell us in the story.
