WALT demonstrate our school values through hakinakina 

we know we have done this when we have been respectful, kind, honest and enjoyed ourselves.

  •  When I was playing basketball because I was sharing the ball and when I didn't get it in I told the truth
  • When I was playing tennis I was kind when the other person missed I wasted until the person

Rio Rainforest


I am breathing as loud as a loud radio. I had to catch up to the cheetah and concentrate My eyes are glowing as bright as the sun. My heart is beating as loud as a drum. I see some lighting and then some thunder it gave me a fright but I kept on running. My teeth are as sharp as a knife. I am a black panther I am as  fast as usain bolt and I am way faster than a sloth. I am sneaking behind a cheetah and I am trying to win but he is too fast. Then I went to beat him and then I tried to sneak up to him but he was to fast. Then I was in front of one cheetah and It felt good to be in front of a cheetah. Then I was trying to race up to another cheetah and I can feel the rough leaves on my back. I start to get a bit tired but I keep trying And I am running so fast like usain bolt.I can see some really wet ferns that look cool. I can smell something that smell quite weird  And I can see lots of trees that are as tall as the sky tower and I can see some trees that are as short as a minion. Then I catched up to a really fast cheetah and I saw a sloth doing some flips on a pole. stop looking all around me at the sloths and that I said to myself. I can smell something stinky when I start to catch up to the cheetah and then I think to myself “I have to get in front of that cheetah then I turn into usain bolt and then I finally won yay. I see that one other cheetah turned into a sprinter and ran just past the line and then the other cheetah turned into a sprinter and then I celebrated. The end

Hi my name is Jane I have a kid called John and a husband called John he had a chest infection and he died at the age of 34 I live with my son now.I slowly walk to the kitchen I was as slow as a turtle to make some yummy food. As I slowly walk into the kitchen I can hear the floor creak it is as creepy as someone stalking you.Then I was pregnant with 11 other children It is hard looking after 12 children.I Walk up stairs to get the nanny to look after the kids the stairs are as steep as a hill.The nanny looked after the kids while I cooked tea for 14 people counting me and the nanny.It was as hard to cook the tea as doing a backflip on the ground.After I had finished cooking tea the nanny and me feed the kids It was to hard so I got another nanny so now I have 2 nannys It is really good to have 2.I have finished feeding the kids it is bed time.Me and the 2 nannys bring the children to there bedroom it is as far away as maptune then We finally get to the bebroom. We put the babies to bed.Then The 2 nannies went to bed then I headed to my bed.The bed was as comfortable as a couch.Then I went to sleep Very quickly.I woke up the the next day from the birds singing and babies crying.The bird's voice was as  pretty as a diamond.The baby's crying was as loud as a car going fast.It's the same day every day the days are as boring as watching the news.about 15 years later all my kids move out and get married so it's just me by myself.It is time to go to bed I start to feel really sick so I have a drink of water. Then I go to the toilet so I went to bed and I died now I am a ghost.I have lots of people now that loom around my house I really like to see people look after my house and when people are not being very  nice to my house I chase them far away I just keep an eye on the house and make sure everything is alright and I don't go invisible no one is in my house but when people go through my house I go invisible and that is the end.THE END
