Alma The Sequel

Alma The Sequel

Alma gets sucked into the doll. She feels nothing, she can’t move, Alma starts to panic feeling this “I'll never go home.” She gets emotional not knowing what to do. Another girl walks past finding a little piece of chalk on the ground. Picking it up and she writes her name on the wall. ‘Kerry’ is her name. Kerry turns around to see herself in the shop window. 

She starts banging on the door “nothings happening” she says. Kerry starts walking away a grin on her face clutching her hands. Then the door opens with a creek. Kerry starts to smile and runs cluelessly back to the shop. The door slamming behind her. Alma sees her and tries to move but she’s not working.

Alma has an idea and asks everyone to scream and say get out as loud as they can and hope she hears all of them. All the dolls start screaming. The girl was scared, her eyes grew big and she walked back slowly. 

Kerry starts thumping on the door. She pulls the door but it's not budging. She finds a chair from the manager's office and tries breaking the window on the door. The window shatters into the snow. Kerry runs out panicking down the road. Alma thinks and says to herself “I made a mistake, I couldn't save myself but I can save others…”

Alama hopes that Kerry might be able to save her and the other dolls.

Aroha's Way

 Aroha means love, today I'm going to the beach to see my friends. We were all playing tag around the beach. I was feeling happy until they left for the day. I walked over to the water and looked out at the sea.

 As I sat by the water I began to feel sad. I have never felt like this. My body began to shut down. My face was turning into a frown. The sky got dark. the seagulls were coming outand it started raining. Like tears down my face.

I started thinking positive. My hair flying with the wind I hear the waves crashing against each other. Then I get up. Wiped my tears take a deep breathe. Then walk home into the sunset.

Iron Tamariki


This is a picture of me swimming in an IronMaori race. I drew this on google drawing as part of a reading activity from the story Iron Tamariki by Paora Tibble.  
If I was doing this race I would feel really nervous with all the people competing.

This book 'Mophead' has inspired me to write about bullying and how bad it can affect people.

Yesterday after school, when everyone left, my parents and I went to a restorative justice meeting. 

As the bully approated us I began to feel more and more nervous. He sat down looking scared. I could see the sweat that was starting to drip from his face. My face was a stern business face. His face was a nervous face. I could hear the clock. the time was going slowly. I walked out feeling like a freespirit again and not isolated. The bully said sorry and I accepted it. I hope I will never get bullied like this again and to keep that smile on my face. I now feel joyful and energised knowing that my voice has been heard.

Monsters: Kraken

 This week my reading group and I read  about all kinds of monsters around the world. My favorite monster was the Kraken which is a monster that is a big giant octopus. Sailors feared Kraken because they would sink passing ships with their big tentacles.

Famous Faces.

On the front of every New Zealand banknote, there is a famous face. Each face is of a person who has done something important for New Zealand (and sometimes for other countries too.)
