    River bend ghost

    It was dark outside a cold breeze filled the air I shuddered and shivered as I brushed my chattering teeth.SUDDENLY THE SHOWER TURNED ON. I DROPPED MY toothbrush I felt cold no not cold freezing. I didn't dare move a muscle. Help my body told me I wanted to run but I couldn't then the shower turned on cold. then I heard knock knock at that moment I knew I was done for. . . .a few minutes later Mrs hill came in to see what was going on.I thought my savior But I didn't say that.  

                                        THE END

    Moari Hand Games

    Maori Hand games

    Last week we were split into groups and went to Maori hand games for matariki there was two groups one had the knuckle bones and the other had the whai (the string).Firstly I was doing the knuckle bones we did ticks they were really hard I couldn't do them.The first trick was to throw the knuckle bone in the air and pick up another it was really hard. Next we had to throw one knuckle bone in the air clap and catch the one in the air.
    Then we swapped groups I was in the group were we did the string or whai it was like doing cat's cradles I learnt how to do the jellyfish I did it over and over again then I did the waka it was easy after that we did some more hand games we would get our fists and thumbs and played a game the words were e hipitoitoi and you had two move your thumbs up and down and if you did the same move as your opponent you say hipitoitoi ra and then there was a one where you had two move your arms and say hei tama tu tama and you say the same thing tu tama ra and win then we had a competition some kids went up and vs each other and whoever won out of the two groups faced each other then one kid faced the teacher lucky he was man it was really fun and hard I had lots of fun my favorite was doing the whai (string) and learning how to do some new things with the whai.
