My Highlight of This Year

My favourite highlight of this year is when we have basketball game every Friday and the athletics. That was my favourite part because I spend a lot of time with my friends playing basketball and we had a lot of fun. I was so happy that we had a lot of fun playing basketball together.

The athletics this year was fun and intense because there are some fast people. The worst thing that happened to me on athletics is when I was doing my discuss with my sprain finger. I sprained my finger on my left hand and i'm a left handed, so I normally throw with my left hand, but I still tried my best to do it. On 100 metres sprint I came 3rd, it was really intense because they look fast. On the first heat I came 3rd, I thought I was winning but one of them smashed me on the 60 metres and I loss.

I had a lot of fun this year with my friends and I tried a lot of challenges that I don't wanna do but I still tried my best to try some new hard things. Being year 8 is really fun and being a leader for year 7's.

Summer Learning Journey

Roald Dahl is a famous book writer. Roald Dahl was born in 13 September 1996, he died in 23 November 23 1990. His nationality is British. Roald Dahl is famous for writing 38 books.
So the purpose of this blog is to talk about the book he wrote called BFG so I will be telling you guys what is BFG. So in BFG there was a really tall old man he was walking around the street and then this girl saw him named Sophie when the old man saw her looking at him Sophie pretends to sleep then the guy tried to grab her trough the window and take her to his house. For me that what's the BFG looks like.

Summer Learning Journey

Hi, Today our topic is about (Summer Learning Journey.) So we were told to open our device and sign up for summer learning journey, if you don't wanna join the summer learning journey you could pick no, so there was question that says like if you wanna join in.

So Hi, I'm Gerald, I'm year 8 and I'm from Hornby High school. I play sports at school like basketball and football. My main sport is basketball, I've been to nationals before in Tauranga and Rotorua. So in Tauranga I was playing for the Christchurch basketball team It's called Waitaha and we loss the tournament. In Rotorua I was selected to tryout for the under 14 New Zealand basketball team and if you get selected you will go to Australia and play there.

So at school I love doing Writing and P.E because they are fun. P.E is my main subject we have it every Monday and Thursday. I love P.E because It's really fun and I love sport that's why I love P.E
I'm looking forward to do some blogs on vacation for this summer learning journey, I will be so busy because I will be going to Philippines next year, so I hope that I can do blogs as many as I can while I'm in the Philippines.

I'm looking forward as well to my reading I think I need to improve in that. I think I will be able to participate in summer learning journey because I will be so busy at holidays because I might have a lot of basketball tournament like I did last year in holidays, I was so busy of doing basketball tournament I went to north Island twice to play there.

I need to achieve doing blogs everyday as many as I can, I really wanna do the summer learning journey but I'm gonna be so busy in the holidays. Summer learning journey is interesting because if you did something in the holidays you could write a blog about it. I'm pretty sure that some of us will go to another places to enjoy their holidays and you could write a blog about it. That's what makes summer learning journey interesting.
