Snow Boarding

Dashing down with a powerful push I zoomed down the snow like lightening. As I zigzaged down the smooth snow that I had to make it. While I dashed down I said to myself “don’t fall Levi, don’t”.

Carving my way through the icy snow, and I had fallen over. I was amazed seeing my very cool parents snow boarding with there fabulous moves. Me and my mum are not good turners on our snow boards but we won’t give up. I had a great time snow boarding.

Were we went to snow board on the snow mountain at Ohakune. Tasting the fresh wind while it was blowing in my face. I had been twisting and turning so that I could be like my amazing father. Seeing other great snow boarders zoom right passed me, I thought” I would be like them.” When my pretty mother had twisted her leg then she didn’t give up.

Jordan my brother had not fallen off his snow board and he was fantastic. Building a small hut that me and Jordan could play war in it. Sticks and logs were fun to play with. Then we climbed up a tree. We looked like crazy monkeys. Our pretty mother took some pictures of us in our hut. We should make more huts. It’s cool making them. If you make a hut you are amazing. Huts are amazing. the secret enter door was very secret. That was my best door to the hut.

Jonah Lomu

Jonah Lomu was a great runner so the All Black coach was really excited that he asked Jonah Lomu to join the all blacks. He was so amazing that he played 63 games with the all blacks. He played in Wales then Hong Kong. He was a global champion.
He had dialysis in 2003 and his kidneys were a problem to him because he couldn’t play rugby. Then in 2004 he had a transplant then in 2005. He began to come back to the all blacks. He got so tired of playing rugby so he did give because he was getting to old to play rugby.

Weet-Bix Challenge

I have never laughed so much and got so messy at assembly until today. I was a part of a weet-bix challenge where you had to stand behind a person and feed them weet-bix. The first team to finish all the weet-bix was the winner. Each team had two people and there were three teams. Miss Lavakula was in my team Mrs Barks shouted out "3, 2, 1 go!!!" I rushed and even though I struggled getting the weet-bix into her mouth and made a mess on the stage, Miss Lavakula and I won.

I pretended I had not eaten for a whole year, and that's why I think we won. Maybe next time Miss Lavakula could feed me because I love weet-bix.
