Handwriting – Homework Wk5
The boy with fair hair lowered himself down the last few feet of rock and began to pick his way toward the lagoon. Though he had taken off his school sweater and trailed it now from one hand, his grey shirt stuck to him and his hair was plastered to his forehead. All round him the long scar smashed into the jungle was a bath of heat. He was clambering heavily among the creepers and broken trunks when a bird, vision of red and yellow, flashed upwards with a witch-like cry; and this cry was echoed by another.

Blog Introduction !!
Malo e Lelei, Talofa Lava, my name is Emeline and I am a yr 7 at Point England School. This year, my home/maths teacher is Mr Wiseman (Rm 3) and my literacy teacher is Mr Moran (Rm 1). I’m 12 and my favourite subject is Maths because I love to solve hard problems and try my best at remembering my Times Tables. I have a family of seven including myself, my parents, my 3 sisters (Eve 10, Elena 7, Elyse 1) and my brother (Patrick 11).
I am half Tongan and half Samoan but I was born and raised here in Auckland New Zealand. My favourite things to do are spending time with my family/friends, playing sports (especially Volleyball, Rugby and Netball), and having loads of fun aka being a crackhead (a funny wild person). My favourite hobbies are cleaning, eating, sleeping, and taking good care of Elyse (baby sister).
My favourite food is my mum/dad’s cooking, seafood, and island food (especially Horse, and Lu). When I grow up I would love to be a Rugby/Netball player, because it promotes teamwork and I just love these sports so much !! My goal this year is to be a good student/girl and focus on my learning, I love to learn and push myself to a high standard.
At the end of the year, I want to apply for either a House Captain or Prefect, and become a better/smarter person. Please feel free to leave a positive comment on my blog, ‘Alu a !
Writing Challenge #2
Suddenly, the walls start closing in. Why was I the only one sweating and panicking? There was a black, slim, eerie figure that stood still in front. I couldn’t tell who or what it was, but it just kept walking. Click, clack, click, clack… Never before had I been so frightened, because I felt like this was the end.
This is another writing challenge. With only 6 sentences, 1 image and 4 words. Here is the image:
Light shined through the pale windows of the French restaurant, Oui Oui. They didn’t serve any traditional French cuisine, they served American cuisine! Things like fries, burgers and soda, everything American. A worker was cleaning the windows (because they were dirty) with blue Ajax cleaning spray. A customer had a burger and was waiting for their drink. The Ajax got mistaken for their drink, and they died from the Ajax poison.
How my Life is different to the children in Russia !!
This week we watched a documentary about how some children live in Nepal and Russia. The documentary highlighted the challenges that some of these children face just to get to school.
In Russia the children had to wake up at 6:00 am in the morning & do there chores, milk the cows, help get each other get dressed and more. They had to put about 4 layers of clothing on them to keep them warm. They had to put heaps of clothes on because in Russia where they lived, was freezing cold & they had to keep close to each other. When they left, they walked it took 2 hours to get to there destination, they had to wait for the bus. If the bus doesn’t come then that means they have to go back home.
This is very different from my life here in New Zealand. For me I wake up & look after my baby sister while my mum gets ready for work and get the others up. After looking after my sister, I go get changed and brush/wash my teeth/face and then do my hair. After that I go make my lunch, and walk straight to school.
