Dangerously running through
the opposition Sonny Bill Williams got a fantastic try. The crowd went wild!!! Calling out to the All Blacks “ YOU HAVE WON!!!”
I was so excited when the All Blacks had bet Japan. I had yelled out “Go Sonny Bill Williams” when he had got a try. I said to myself “I know the ABs have won".

Mmmm huele los aflajorcitos tan riquisimo. Room 13 were so lucky to make alfajorcitos in their class.
“Come on & eat these very delicious aflajorcitos with me.”
The Alfajorcitos are from Argentina and are their favourite treat.
Alfajorcitos are a sort of biscuit filled with a kind of caramel. They tasted very nice. Listen to this “they are delicioso”.
We got two biscuits to spread the dulce de leche on with a knife. After squishing the biscuits together, we rolled them in coconut. They were so nice to eat that I dribbled everywhere. I asked the teacher for some more but she said no.
I didn’t eat a lot because they might make me fat. But they did taste nice. I know will stuff an alfajorcito into my mouth if I ever see one again.

What a day this is to play AFL on Thusrdays. Come and join me.
The weather kept changing from sunshine to blustery, cold and wet. As we were playing the wind was getting to the point of when it would be like a cyclone. As the wind got stronger and stronger I got even weaker and weaker.
Our warm up was called “Bumper Jumper”. You play by hopping and using your shoulders to make your partner fall over. While bumping my partner I had fun and I won too!
Then we went on the courts to do some AFL skills. One of the skills we learnt was how to bounce the ball while jogging. First we did it on our knees, then while walking and finally we tried jogging.
After bouncing the ball we played a game called “kick baseball”. This game helped us practiced lots of our skills. It was sort of like regular baseball, but we kicked the ball. I kicked and ran but before I got to the base I had to bounce the ball. I fumbled and slipped in the mud. While fielding my team caught lots of players out. That is what made our team win.
We were filed of excitement when we heard that we had won. Hopefully we get to play that game again.

I was doing amazing moves on the Playstation 3, as we were playing Lego Star Wars 2. There were fantastic levels to be played by some awesome kids. My favorite character in Lego Star Wars 2 was Master Windu, because he had a purple lightsaber and had a baldy.
Master Windu was very skillful and he also had powers like the force and other things. He had awesome moves, he was very smart and he was a master of some of the Jedis. As me and my brothers played Star Wars, we had to share it, so I played with Toby, and Jordan was with Noah.
We only had four days to play on it. As we were playing it, we had to come up with a plan to go to the next level. We also were fighting over the playstation because we wanted to keep on playing.
I have typed all of the cool games that we got to play and here is the list: Tekken 6, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Despicable me. I am eagerly awaiting for the next round of Playstation.
Before giving a burst of speed I was so scared, I felt sick. I began taking deep breaths.
Eagerly waiting for Pt England’s Cross Country to start, I was nervous. I wanted to beat Jabez. As Mr Burt said "On your marks, get set, go!!" I charged so I could stay at the front.
Despite my nerves. I said to myself "You can do it".
During the race it was very hard to stay on the path, as it was narrow and twisted and turned all over the place. Sometimes I had to go off the track, onto the grass, to be able to pass people. My heart pounded as fast as a machine to get blood to my screaming lungs.
Towards the end of the race, I knew that I was in front. I challenged myself to not let anyone pass me. Digging deep to find my energy, I charged towards the finish line.
Approaching my ultimate goal, I sprinted like a chicken to collapse over the line - victorious! I had beaten Jabez and won the Cross Country for the second time since I have been at school!
I felt so proud of myself for surpassing my expectations and getting my champion’s title. Bring on next year!
