My Holidays Post

                                                                  Holidays
  In the holidays I went to see the B.F.G at the focal point cinema. I went with my Grandma and my sister. The movie was about a little girl named Sophie she was one of the kids at a foster kids home but one night she heard a loud bang she jumped up out of bed and there she saw the B.F.G. He had a big black sheet wrapped around his head and hanging down to his hip. He also had dream catcher that looked like a trumpet. Sophie ran to her bed and put her blanket over her head. The B.F.G reached in to the window and grabbed Sophie...

I enjoyed watching this movie my favorite part was when the B.F.G drunk a fizzy drink called frobscottle and and he shot up to the ceiling and came straight back down landing on his chair


That is the end of half of the movie I hoped you enjoyed reading my holidays
story.

Learning post 2016

This is the story of Matariki. I hope you like it.





Once there was seven sisters. They were making some kites. The smallest sister called make her own kite now so she weaved and weaved and she made a colorful kite. The other sisters made normal kites out of harakeke (flax). The oldest sister said "We better find somewhere to sleep." They found this oak tree and they all cuddled up under it . But when they dozed off to sleep the kites started to lift up from the ground. The little sister woke up and saw her kite flying away in the distance with the other kites. “Hey, my kite” said the little one “Hey our kites” said the oldest one.  The seven sisters went home and the the seven kites flew  into the night sky.
