Rainbows end

On the 15th of July me, my family and my friends went to rainbows end to celebrate my birthday. It wasn't my real birthday it was just my party. Any ways my friends that were with me were Pisirina, Jahzara and Marika.

When we got to rainbows end we were the first ones there so we quickly ran to the gates. My siblings came with my dad, and myself and my friends went with my mum. We were waiting at the gates and we saw Rai and Bow. Rai and Bow are the two Rainbows end people.

Finally we got inside Rainbows end and we ran to the Log flume. The Log flume is a water ride where you go in small logs. The logs take you to a magical land and at the end you go down this big waterfall.

After that ride we went on the Gold rush. The Gold rush is where you go in mini miner carts under ground. You will see fake people holding gold and digging for gold. When you come up from the under ground you see all the people who are on the Log flume.

We went on many more rides like the Pirate ship, Invader, Corkscrew coaster, Motion master, Fear fall, AA drivers town and Bumper boats. It was 4:50 and the rides were closing down because the theme park closes at 5:00 pm and opens at 10:00 we got there at 9:30. Myself, Jahzara and Marika went on the last ride that was opened the Invader.

We got off the Invader and ran to my parents. We dropped everybody home and I got home at 8:40 pm.

Bonus activity day 4

Hi everyone it's Levonah and this is my bonus activity for day 4. Let's begin.

On the site it said to write about if you think fishing should be banned from farewell spit.

I think fishing should be banned from farewell spit because when the hectors dolphins get stuck they won't know what to do. The hectors dolphins will also be scared and try to call for help from the other dolphins but there to small so the fisherman will just keep catching them.

That was my writing about if fisherman should fish at farewell spit.

I hope you enjoyed it. 

Winter Learning Journey day 4

Hi everyone. It's Levonah here and this is the Winter Learning Journey day 4 so let's begin.

The locals had to keep the whales wet so they kept pouring buckets of water on each of the whales, they also had to stay away from the whales tail. Also the locals had to keep the whales blow hole clear and cover them. This is not the first time this has happened at farewell spit.

In 2012 a pod of pilot whales were found and in 2014 another pod of 50 pilot whales were found. This year in January there were 656 whales found at farewell spit.

Activity 2.
On the site it said to write a summary about the whale rider movie.
The movie is about a girl named Paikea. Her twin brother died at birth but Paikea just made it and with her help of her grandma and uncle she wants to own her birthright.

Holiday writing

Today I was not at my house because I was with my nana, aunty Rochelle and my brother Mitchell. Last night I was watching the All blacks vs Lions game. The score was 15 all but before that I was at the Matariki light trail.

It was so cool I saw Brooklyn, Tehilla, Mamare and Heather there. I waited until 9:00pm to see the fireworks. Everybody counted down from 10 and then we saw all the fireworks.

The fireworks were so loud and bright so they played we know the way and wairua. It was so fun. After the fireworks I went back to my house and it was 10:30pm.

My nana decided to come over and she asked me if I wanted to go to her house so I did. My aunties and uncles were all working at the game. Me, my nana and my brother went to go pick up my aunty Rochelle from the game and by the time we got to my nana's house it was already midnight.

When I woke up it was 6:30am and we were getting ready to go to the doctors. We left my nana’s house at 8:00am and by the time we got to the doctors a lot of people were waiting because there was only one doctor.
So we had to come back later.

We were starving so we went to eat at Hollywood cafe for breakfast. After all that food we went to church, church took 2 hours and when we left it was 1:30pm. My nana dropped me off home but my brother is still with her.

Today was a great start to the holidays, even though it was a really wet morning but it started to get sunny. Today Me and my family went to henderson for my mums appointment. Except for my brother Mitchell because he is at my nana's house.

We arrived at my mums appointment and I didn’t know what it was for but her appointment took one hour. After that one hour we were driving in the car and my younger sister Leonora said “mum can we go to burger king” and my mum said “ oh but why” she said” because I want to get the churros deluxe” so guess what my mum said “ ok we can go and get your churros. Myself and my sister madi said “oh mum why does she get churros she's always spoiled ” my mum said “ we are all getting some”.

We just ordered the food at burger king so while we were waiting me and my sisters were playing hand games. Finally our food arrived because we were starving so my dad and mum had their burgers and we had our churros. It was so yummy.After that we came home and just watched movies.

Writing a Narrative

There once was a little girl called Hannah,she lived on a small farm with her mum,dad and brother Harry. Hannah and Harry always played outside with the animals but as soon as Hannah saw a chicken or a rooster she would scream so loud that her parents could here her from inside. Hannah ran inside screaming so loud, her brother Harry brang a chicken inside and Hannah shouted “a chicken”.

Her parents said Hannah why are you scared of the chickens and Hannah said “there just so scary” “but they're not scary why don’t you come outside with us and pat one” said her parents ok said Hannah “but I’m holding onto dad”. When they went outside as soon as Hannah saw the chickens she ran for her live. So after that day they had to get rid of the chickens and Hannah never saw a chicken again.

Hannah was so spoiled that she asked for a puppy and guess what her parents said “yes Hannah you can have a dog”. Hannah was outside playing with her dog buddy and Hannah chucked the ball really far so buddy went to chase it. But Hannah was waiting for buddy to come back but he never came so Hannah ran to tell her parents and they searched all night for him.

The next day her parents said is there a puppy called buddy there and they checked his name and they said yes would you like to pick him up said the lady her parents said yes but they didn’t know that it was gonna cost money.
When they went to the animal control Hannah was so happy to see buddy but when they were about to leave the lady said you have to pay $100. Hannah's parents said why the lady said because we had to look after him and Hannah was feeling even sader.

So her parents said we got $50 so can we pay the rest of tommorow. The lady was thinking about it because you can’t give half the money and pay the rest off so the lady said ok but just this once. Hannah was so relieved thank you they all said so the next day they paid the rest of the money and they lived happily ever after.
