Kayde Friend Descreption

Matthew Ryan is my best friend in the whole school. We laugh at the same things, we're both clowns and he is very funny. Matthew likes rugby union and softball, (he plays for otahuhu softball club). Even outside of school we are still best friends.

My 2012 reflection

The year 2012 was a year that saw me achieve and fail at many tasks this year. But the thing I am most proud of is my sports, not only in school. I was the school under 55kg and open weight rugby league captain. But sadly in my class work I didn't manage to finish my tasks on time.

Sadly this year I think I have gone dummer. I don't know why when my teacher Ms Squires is one of the brainiest in our school. I really hope that next year in 2013 I hope at the college I go to, I excel in sports and also learning.

The first day of year 8 camp

My legs absolutely ached as I continued to run, although I could’ve walked it. Our year eights had started to take a 3km hike up and down the Ngaruawahia mountain range. Some people even struggled to make it ten metres up the hill. Mind you it was very steep.

“Finally” I screamed as we had finished our 2-3 hour hike. It was time to run down the last little bit of the walk then......”ooohhh”, I had tripped over a rock that was sticking out of the ground but wasn’t visible. Luckily I wasn’t hurt in anyway.

4:30 pm and it was finally free time. Arcade room,mud slide or pool. I ran straight to the pool. It was really fun swimming in the rain splashing around without worrying about getting much things wet. But the real stink let down was that we weren’t allowed to do bombs into the pool.

Our hour of free time was over and then time for showers that everyone was eager to go for. But then sadly the showers we so slow that you could barely feel it running on you. It was a shower so you had to appreciate it. I was back into some dry warm clothes and read to eat dinner.

“Um,Um, Nachos for dinner!” I was very happy to hear that we were having nachos for dinner. My plate was stacked with a lot of different calories and carbs. It contained chips,mince,onions,veges and sauce. Some people looked like they didn’t get fed at home going up for heaps of food. Although our school looked like starving pigs, thanks to ted and the cooks for cooking our food.

“Hahaha” the year eights laugh as the movie Nacho Libre played. Mr Barks and the crew had finally managed to get the sound working. But the had only managed to get it working at about 10.00 p.m so we only watch half of it the slowly went to bed. And like that the camp was quiet. Everyone asleep no sound. And that was the first day done and dusted from my point of view.

My writing sample, in the bush

My legs ached as we continued to walk. Although it was a cool day I was heating up like left over mince in the microwave. We had won a family trip for five to go on a four day trip including a walk through the Queensland rainforest in Australia. So far it had been an unbelievable experience. “I can’t wait for the swim”. I said to myself with excitement. “Come on boy, we’re nearly there.” My father yelled.

“WoooHooo” I cheered happily! We had made it to the creek. It was time to swim. My brother and I jumped and bombed from the tree. “KABOOM” The bomb went. I had been planted into the crystal clean water. I could feel something slithering up my leg.No I had been pulled in.

“Ahh” Its a crocodile. My mother screamed. It had taken a bite into my right leg. Blood quickly spread throughout the water. It was a pool of blood. Breathless I had somehow managed to get my head up and out of the water for air. I had a short glance of my family before I was pulled back down. My family was in disbelief. “NO” I screamed.

Awakening to the scene of an ambulance is a nightmare. For me a reality. Looking down my body my right leg was hanging on by a thread. “My son” Mum screamed. Sadly for the doctor his shoe was covered with vomit as I couldn’t bear the sight. “Into the ambulance, 3,2,1” The doctor demanded. From there on it was lights out.

Again I had awakened, but this time in the ambulance. I lifted my arm and I was as pale as mayonnaise. Surgery had to have been done quickly. But the nearest hospital was still 30 minutes away.

Somehow I was still alive as I had made it to the hospital. Finally we were there. Overhearing the doctors speaking, one of them said that I had sadly lost over fifty percent of my blood. I was rushed to surgery. I didn’t know I was going to survive with all that blood lost. Was I going to make it?

It was blurry as I looked around. Surrounded by my family I was in a hospital bed. It had been three days since my crocodile attack. I was in a coma for two days. The doctors didn’t know if I was going to survive.

I was stoked that I survived and even more happy to hear the news that the surgeons were able to reattach my leg while operating. “Thanks Doc; Oh yeah and one more thing; I am never swimming in an Australian creek again!” I said to the doctor.

Kayde Beach Narrative

P.S Mr Burt if you read this please don't get offended.

It was a perfect day when my mate and I decided to spend the day at the beach. The scorching sun burnt me bright pink. Birds chirped, little kids ran having fun, men fishing off the point. I knew this was going to be an awesome day.

After a BIG feed I had, had enough of the water, so I dug little caves in the sand. My vision of it was to pour water through each hole. It would look awesome. So there I was digging away, then I happened to hit a solid in the ground. I started to get worried, who knows what could have been under there, anything. Kaiden and I had finally dug around it. It was old and rusted, and about the size of a baby whale, It happened to have words on the side of it saying machine on it.

“Arrghhh”.... We groaned as Kaiden and I pulled it out of the sand. People surrounded us and crowded making groups. The looks on their faces were disbelief I was scared and shocked not knowing what this thing could do. Because this old thing said time machine I thought what the heck, lets try it out.

I opened the door I was inside this portal I was scared not knowing would happen. I could die. The door was closed, the time set for 40 years. October 19th 1972. The Machine rumbled, I shook around. I don’t know why I chose this date. The portal door opened, I WAS SHOCKED. I looked around, I was still at the beach all alone with no money. It was so different. No park, no groyne and no changing rooms. I could see buildings up ahead.

“Hey its Point England School.” I said to myself. I saw no one I recognized. I walked over there in search of food. “I wonder If they have fruit in schools?” I asked myself. Walking into the school everyone looked at me thinking I had funny clothes. I was chased away. Back to the beach I went.

“Woohooo bullseye” A boy around my age was throwing rocks at the time machine. This boy looked familiar. I asked what his name was, he said Russell Burt. I was speechless, This man is my school princapal. Some how I persuaded him to fix the time machine. Lying to him I told it was a family fridge. With a few adjustments it was fixed. I was set to go back to the future.

I was in a hurry to get back to October 19th 2012. Closing the door of the portal two bullet holes shot through the wall. I entered the date shut my eyes. “Am I back?” I said to myself. Opening the doors....”How was it, what was it like?” Kaiden asked. Yes I was back. THE END.

Kayde Forest Narrative

Our task was to create a setting and scenario from this picture.

Breathing heavy I had made it to a hideout, a big camouflaged tree. I noticed to see this fierce gang walk passed. Putting my head down I realized it was the redcoat gang. These thugs take peoples food and money. They were after me because I didn’t give them what they wanted. I was ready to fight, but the forest was dim and gloomy I couldn’t see anything.

Luckily I had managed to regain my eye sight. I looked closer they were getting neared. My muscles tensed, Sadly I wasn’t strong enough to take all six of them on all I had was a cross-bow. I was put into a deep sleep as the water trickled on me.

This picture was taken from a game called assassins creed.

Rippa Rugby Tag

Last night on the 30-10-12 2012 I played my first game of the year for tag. My team is called Otahuhu Let Rip. We were entered in the South Auckland Papatoetoe Tuesday night competition. Our first game was against the Mangere East D-Doggs team. I knew it was going to be a hard game because they have been together for a couple of years now. Us a couple of weeks.

"Woooo, nice on Bayley" I said as he scored a run-away try. He had scored a two point try as he scored in the middle of the post. Two for the middle one for the side. After a while we got tired....Then BOOM they scored through their winger Max. They only managed a one point try. The whistle blew and the game was over. Happily we won 2-1.
