Cross-Country 2013

Wednesday 14th August 2013

Cross-Country Recount Writing
On Tuesday the 13th August 2013, Saint Pius X was having cross-country.  It was a big day for Saint Pius X children. The bell rang. It was time for us to get ready. I tried to fake my headache but I was in hard luck. So the school gathered in the tennis court and get ready for the race.

Firstly, the 12 and 13 years old ran. When Miss G banged the blocks I started jogging. When we got to the bottom of the hill I started to sprint up the hill. Then I got tired. I ran past Eneasi and Vililatai. I stopped. But they caught up with me again. So I was behind. Dawn caught up to me. So we decided to power walk together. Even though we were tired we power walked as fast as we could.

Finally we came to the finish line and I finished 2nd for the 12 yr old girls. I was so proud to come 2nd.

Finally, it was time for the junior syndicate cross-country. They were so nervous. While I was watching them, I was sad because I had to leave and the race was not finished yet. But I was happy in the inside because I came second in the twelve year old girls run.  It was a tiring experience for me.

This book was.... Adventurous.
What was the book about?
My book is  actually a diary written by Samuel Abraham Clark. His parents died in a fire. He travelled from New Zealand to Australia. When he was on the boat he met Mr Harrington. Mr Harrington gave him a little present. It was his father’s diary. When he reached Australia, he hopped off the boat and thanked the Harringtons for all they've done for him. Then he hopped on another boat to London. The captain of the boat was Captain Thorbourne. Then a strong wind came. It kept coming until it ripped the boat apart. They were shipwrecked for days.

What did you like about the book?
What I liked about the book was that it was quite adventurous. I had a lot of Self-Questioning while I was reading this book. I also liked the way the book was set out.

What was your favourite part of the book?
My favourite part of the book was when he travelled at sea for 45 days in a ship named “DUNDONALD” and he was still alive. They were shipwrecked by the strong wind that blew them apart.
