Term 3 Maritime mariners!!!!

I sat down on the floor in the hall. It was the first day of school for Term 2 and it seems to me like it would be a good and interesting topic this term. I looked around and saw another teacher called Mr Barkes, he was a Viking. The topic for this term was Mighty Mariners.

All of the teachers teams had to perform a play, skit or animation to give us students a little hint about this Terms Topic. All of the teachers did well, but out of all of them the best team that I liked was team 1. They did an animation and i thought that it was pretty cool. Their animation was about Kupe and how he brought the seven canoes to New Zealand Aotearoa. It was a good animation with a lot of detail and it was concise.

The Topic " MIghty Mariners" is a good topic we all can learn. I like watching sharkmen and lot's of channels on Animal planet so I am looking forward to this term. As I walked out of the assembly I wondered awaited for me later on in the term. At the same time I thought what "A MIGHTY ASSEMBLY".

Rabbitohs vs Warriors!!!!

On Sunday the 25th of July, My all time favourite team the Vodafone Warriors will battle the South Sydney Rabbitohs for a top four place on the ladder. While the Rabbitohs look to get back in to the top eight. ( They sit ninth on 20 points with the Eels ). If the Warriors win, not only it will be their 6th win in a row, they will go to second equal with the Wests Tigers and the Penrith Panthers on 26 points. With only 10 points separating the tenth place Parramatta and up to first place, it is a race to get into the top eight.
Both, South Sydney Rabbitohs and the New Zealand Warriors are desperate to win or tough consequences where the Rabboitohs might not make the top eight, where the Warriors could slip out of the top eight. As you all know my opinion, 'GO THE WARRIORS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!'

How the early Maori came to New Zealand.

Dating back to 1000 years ago, the Eastern Polynesians people were the first ever to cross the southern pacific ocean and discove Aoteroa (New Zealand). These people were called the early maori. Their vessels were 15-20 meters longand normally it would have one hull, but sometimes have two or an out-rigger. Finally, Aoteroa (New Zealand) was found.
The Eastern polynesian people couldn't navigate on their own, so had a great sense of humor and had the stars to navigate them. They also followed birds in the day. Not many east polynesian people made it to New Zealand even though there were STORMY seas.

Sam Burgess and James Maloney....

Sam Burgess is an AWESOME player for the Rabbits, as in Rabbitohs. He is one of only six people who are the odd ones from the super league who was born in England. His position is second-row, and HECK he is a mean tackler. Preferring to tackling I mean Sonny Bill-William shoulder bargers who now plays rugby in his home country, New Zealand. Back to Sam Burgess. If there was ANY team, currently in the NRL who have MEAN players if you take the Melbourne storm out of the equation, it would be the Rabbitohs. They have the talent of Issac Luke, Sam Burgess, John Sutton, Chris Sandow, Beau Champion and MUCH, MUCH MORE.....
On Sunday the 25th of July 2010, my all time favourite team the vodafone Warriors
Now, James Maloney. He is a MASTER goal kicker in the Vodafone Warrios ( My Favourite team) Just because he has missed 12 goals this year, he is kicking at 81 percent. James Maloney's position is halfback of Five Eighth. I rather prefer him at number six, five eighth. He has been a MEAN member in the halves with Lance Hohaia, Isaac John and Brett Seymour. In all this year, James Maloney has only missed one game due to injury, against the Wests Tigers. Currently due to James Maloney's inspirational 3 try and 8 goal win over the Brisbane Bronco's back in round 3. Even though it was ages ago, the Warriors are now on 24 points and in 5th place, and with out the win against the bronco's we would be on 22 points and, due to points differential, the warriors would be in 8th or ninth place. Thanks James Maloney!!!!!
