Writing Test.

Waking up in fear knowing that today is the  yr7&8 mix tournament,  I was very nervous that I wanted the tournament to be over and done with. Getting ready and dressed up for school made more pressure on me , I felt like I had butterflies all around my body .

As I got to school I heard the 8:30 bell rang,  I quickly ran to the hall ready to go. Lining up in our team line ready to go, I could hear the yr 5&6s talking about how excited they were  to play against the other teams. Hearing the yr 5&6s talking about how excited they are just to get on the field and play made my butterflies slowly go away.

When we got to Dunkirk all the other schools were setting up there tents ready to go for this big day. As soon as we got to the fields everyone had to gather there things into one pile so that we could put the tent up. While everyone was helping out with the tents, Katalina and I had to go and help out with the sausages because our school had to fundraise some money.

After Katalina and I finish helping out with the sausages, all the teams gathered around the tents so our coaches can tell us when and who are we playing against. When we finish our little meeting all the teams had to go with there coaches and warm up ready for the first game.  Walking with my team and our coach Tyson to our field to warm up, I was scared and nervous that I might drop the ball.

As the hooter went Tyson told us who's the starting seven. Walking onto the field was very scarey because people were watching. Our first game was against Tamaki Primary they were very hard, but at the end we scored a lot of tries against them. Playing my first games of touch against boys and girls was a bit challenging because the boys were very fast to touch . Winning our first game was a very exciting news for me and my team.

Winning all our games against the schools was very exciting. The last game was the finals where we had to play against Glen Taylor. Playing against Glen Taylor was the hardest game in the tournament because they had some very good players and very good steppers. Scoring the first try against Glen taylor in the finals was very happy moment for me.

My highlight for the was coming 1st against  Glen Taylor, and also playing against other schools and meeting new people.

Waking up in fear knowing that today is my first ever rugby 7’s tournament which was hilarious because  I really didn’t know how to play. Running to my teammates asking them who is nervous for this big day, they all seemed chilled because they knew how to play.

Once we left the school grounds all the girls were talking how excited they were to play. I felt left out because I was the only one who really didn’t know how to play and what am I going to do out on the field. Sitting on the chair, all I was feeling was butterflies and fear all around me.

As soon as we got to the field there were already teams warming up because the first game was kicking off at 9:30. Seeing all the teams warming up made me even more terrified that I wanted the game over and done with. While we were putting our bags away Miss Va'a Fusanga gathered us girls in a circle to tell who's the starting 7 and our game plan for the day.

Starting our first game against Viscount was a big match that we wanted to win so we put all our energy into this game. Getting ready for Viscount to kick the ball I was standing in a good position ready to catch the ball. Catching the ball and running towards the player slowly  made my butterflies fly away. Losing the first game wasn’t the result we wanted but at least we went out there and tried our very best.

Overall I felt very happy that I tried my best because that was my first time playing rugby 7’s and I was proud of myself because I done a great job, even though we didn’t want the results we wanted but at least we all tried our best.

My Logo Introducation.

Designing a personal logo has many steps.  One of the steps is to research on Google what will be drawn. A personal logo is something created that represents a person and their culture.  

A logo design starts off by creating your own brainstorm that  includes many ideas that you're going to put onto the logo. Try putting things that people don't know about you, and things that represents yourself.

To design a logo the first step was to create our own presentation that describes ourselves . For the presentation you had to put as many ideas on it for you to create your design. After you have finish putting all ideas onto the presentation then you start planning what you going to draw.

Drawing an ogo design was very tricky because we had to draw a thumbnail concept. For people that don’t know what a thumbnail concept  it means drawing your ideas the same size as your thumb.

Overall I am proud of how my logo turned out. I think I did really good because I added lots of details to my logo, I've added some drawings that represents myself which was a tongan flag. I really enjoyed this task because I got to create my own personal logo that represents my culture and myself.

Cross Country.

Waiting on the courtyard waiting for Mr Burt to say it's time for the year 8 girls to start there cross country run, made me very nervous and scared. Walking towards the line ready to start I felt really nervous that I almost cried because all I was thinking of was coming last in the run.

Before we started running Mr Burt gathered us girls in a circle to tell us just to try our best  and not give up. While he was talking I was shaking with butterflies flying around my stomach which shows that I was really nervous. When Mr Burt said girls line up my heart was beating really fast that I felt like getting the race over and done with.

“On your mark, get set," BANG! as the wood clapper went running towards the front. While I was running my confidence began to  grow that my butterflies was starting to go away. Running around the muddy parts was a big  mission for us because it was very slippery that I almost fell, but lucky I was holding onto some of the girls.

When I was running all I was thinking about was making it past the finish line. As I was running my legs was burning really bad that I wanted to stop, but I just kept on running to the finish line. As soon I reached the school gates I felt very happy because I heard people shouting go asena go looking up towards the field. Running past the park was very scarey because people was looking at me while I was running, but also I was happy because I made it past the finish line.

Overall I was very proud of myself because I came 3rd and I tried my very best at the cross country run.

For the past few weeks we have been learning about being financially responsible with money. Part of  being financially responsible is about saving your money for things that is really important like taking your family on a vacation. Also being financially responsible is about using your money in a correct way and not spending it on things you don't really need.

Free Blog Writing.

For the past few weeks in literacy we have been learning about designing our own logos. Designing our own logos we had to go onto Google and find some ideas and put it onto our logo design. Drawing our logo design it had to be at least two drawings that represents our culture. When we were drawing our design it had to be the same size as our thumbnail, a thumbnail means when you sketch a picture that is the same size as your thumb. On slide 2 there is a picture of my logo design that I had created myself, the reason I draw these logos its because it relates to my culture, as you can see there is a Tongan flag  which shows that I am Tongan.
