This week I have been reading tomorrow when the war began. I'm up to page 100 and it has gone really good so far. My favorite part is when they go into the show ground because they see lights there and when they got there they started to sneak around. When they went into the shed because they were being chased it was making me think what's going to happen next that's what Made me want to read more. When they were being chased I thought to my self oh my goshare they going to die then I kept reading they solders shot in every place they called BANG!! BANG!! The gun shoots BANG!!. The part I didn't like is when they were being chased.

Reading reflection

This week i have been reading tomorrow when the war began. I have read 3 chapters. It is easy and hard to read. It was hard because I didn't understand Some words. What I like about my book is that it has action in it and it doesn't tell everything first so like its boring... Still boring and then BOOM!!! There's a lot of action. What I don't like about the book is that there's only 6 kids and there mums and dads got kidnaped by some people I don't really know yet but there mum and dad left a note saying they said it was the an army problem so it's either they got kidnaped or they had to leave town. What I think is going to happen next is there going to keep searching until they find there parents.

Reading reflection

This week I have been reading The Outsides. It's about two gangs called the socs which stands for socials and the greasers. The socs are the rich gang that have really good stuff like knifes and stuff like that but the greasers are poor and they live in old  type of houses. I'm up to page 33. I like the book I like it because its from the old days I also like it because there are some interesting words. There are some things we have in common like we have some types of we opens that they have and some people are poor and rich.

Jack and the bean stalk

Once upon a time there was a boy named Jack. Jack's family was so poor that he had to sell a cow for some money. But Jack sold the cow for some beans and the man that gave Jack the beans said they were magic beans. Jack said, "magic beans theres no such thing as magic beans."

Then the man said "there is. Plant one of them and see for yourself."

 "Ok" Jack said running home excitedly. When Jack got home he showed his father and he said "look father I sold the cow for some magic beans."

"Magic beans you say theres no such thing as magic and I told you to sell the beans for money not beans."

"But father" Jack said

"no theres no buts Jack go to your room"

 So Jack walked up the stairs into his room and lay down crying.

Jackson and his alien friend

Once upon a time there was a little boy named Jackson. One night Jackson was watching a movie called grave in counters. Then jacksons stomach started to grow so he left the movie running and went to the kitchen. Jackson opened the fridge and saw some pizza he could still hear the movie playing but when he went back to watch t.v was gone.

He saw a bright light like a torch flashing from the distence so he followed it. When the bright light stopped he stopped and he saw a huge rocket. Then Jackson  said its a alien but he didn't really care and he forgot about it and went back to sleep. In the morning when he woke up he watch some t.v and he was watching the news and the news person said things have been diapering around the city and he knew what it was. He  said it was  was properly the alien trying to rebuild his ship so he could go back to his own planet.

 So every night Jackson would go to we're the ship was and he would take photos of the ship. He takes photos of the ship so he would have proof to show the police if they tried to kill it. It was a big problem for every one though because people were really bored and had nothing to do. Jackson told every one he knew who was stealing every thing and they said who I would love to kill him and Jackson said its an alien who is stealing everything. All of the people laughed hahaha a alien really there not real. Jackson said yes they are and I have proof he showed them the pictures and he said to the people he has been taking our stuff because he needs to rebuild his ship. Jackson said lets help him he really needs our help. The people said no he has caused nothing but harm to us were going to go get our stuff back they said. Then the alien Realised that he had a communicator to his planet so he gave the stuff back and the people forgave him for stealing the stuff and the problem was solved. Every one lived happearly ever after.

The best cross country run ever

This picture is about me running :)
Yesterday was the day I was waiting for. My syndicate had been practising for weeks and now the event was here. Te event was called cross country it's a really fun running event. 

It's about you running around a big track and trying to get a good time and try to non-stop run (well you could stop) but I tried not to stop so when I was about to stop I pushed my self. 

At the start I was nerves and I had butterflies in my stomach but when I was in the race I had a great time didn't give up and I kept running.

I was in the race. I sometimes stopped well not stopped just slowed down and I speed walked and it was tiring but I did it. When I ran down the hills I didn't sprint I jogged. I jogged because I didn't want to be out of energy when I got down to the bottom. If I sprinted down the hill, I would have walked up the next hill then jogged again but that would be a wast of time. 

When I ran past all of the teachers they said to me go Quintin or keep going and stuff like that so they in encouraged me to keep going. The thing I like about cross country is the running. I like the running because it helps me try and keep my stamina up and the other thing I like is the encouragement. I like it because it helps me to never give up and keep going. 

When I was nearly near the end, I started sprinting because there were people trying to beat me to the end. So I tried to beat them and I did. My goal for next year is to try and beat my place because this year my place was 52 but I know I can do better. So that's what I'm going to try do next year and I will achieve it and it's going to be fun.
