Olympics Trailer BBC Sports

I shake my legs and get into my starting position. My eyes in the dazzling black sky , paws sinking in the soil waiting nervously, I look to my other players then to the front. The Baboon screams.

I pounced out and run. As I see the other players, I creep through to first place. Keeping a steady pace I start to feel tired. I say to myself “ don't stop now I'm nearly finished.” Then... “ If I win will my country love me?” “ What if I lose it will be a let down.” Unconsecrated I start to see and hear other people! Thinking about the things I just said I go faster and faster. The cheers get louder and louder cheers get louder and louder. Although I was tired I see the finish line. As I finish, I congratulate the others. Then go to receive my gold.

Pohangina River

This is my inquiry project, on the left side is the map of the Pohangina river. On the right side is facts. I have got a model of the Pohangina river, and key questions on the front.
We started this inquiry 2 weeks ago, we had to pick out of the Manawatu gorge track or the Pohangina river I chose the Pohangina river :)
I wanted to learn more about this topic because I am interested in rivers.
One of my key questions was what is the land use made up of ?
it is made up of 51% sheep and beef, 46% forest and 2% dairy.

The Couch

The Couch
Squishy couch, sinks in between my head.
Finding collectables in the 
cracks, things from years ago,
hair-ties, my old charm, 
bracelets and paper.
Ancient insects lying in the close dark sofa.
Ready to have a rest not knowing 
what lies
underneath them

Diamanté poem

          peak trail
     running, sweating,walking
smack from you tripping on the roots of the trees
        ending,eating drinking
        spot prizes, winning
