Saint Puis X

Saint Pius was born on 1835. 
Altar boy. He was the holy boy.
In Padua, Bepi was sad to leave his family.
Now he was a priest when he was 23.
To school he wore bare feet.

Pope Pius loved Mass so much.
In1903 Bepi's new name was Pope Pius X.
Uusually adults only take Holy Communion.
Some of the children called him Bepi and Guiseppe Sarto.
X is the number 10. Saint Pius the tenth.

A Hockey Woman

A Hockey Woman

I see a big, strong hockey woman wearing a short, white dress and wearing long, white socks. Also she wears pink and white shoes. I think that the hockey woman is proud of herself because she might be the winner of the team. I see the hockey woman's blonde hair and it is in a pony tail. I see the woman wearing a mouth guard and i also see the woman's strong, big muscles. I smell the people's breath and hear the people cheering for her. I see the woman holding a hockey stick and putting it up in the air, holding it high. I think that the woman is also proud and strong because she is amazing. I feel the woman's soft long hair and see her necklace. It is very pretty. I am thinking that I am looking at a winner and a champion.

A Happy Girl

I see a pretty girl with a pink and blue hockey stick in her soft warm hands. I smell the yummy food and the pretty flowers. I can hear the specially loud crowd cheering for the special girl. She feels the light warm clothes that she is wearing. I am thinking that she is proud of herself and when she goes home she is going to celebrate with her parents, friends and family. In the background i can see two men hiding a medal. I think the coach is proud of her.

I see some people clapping and screaming and cheering. I can see a hockey stick and a white mouth guard. I can see a tall, strong woman with long blonde hair. I can see a woman who is happy because I think her team won. I think the woman is proud of herself. I cam see a stadium full of people. The hockey stick colour is blue and pink. I see a white and black tunic. I see her socks and her shoes. The shoe colour is pink and green and white. I think her coach is proud of her. I think she will get a medal and a bouquet full of flowers. I think the girl can smell the food. The woman is holding the hockey stick. I think the woman hit lots of goals.

A man crying and disappointed

A man crying and disappointed

I see a boy sad and looking disappointed. I smell green grass and some mud. I hear clapping for other people. I think he he is praying. I feel like crying because it looks like he is crying. A big strong man has got muscles. I see stretchy blue shorts. I see people sitting on the stand. I see flags of countries on the top of the stadium. The boy has got a white t-shirt. He has got blue and yellow shoes. I like his hair because it is shaved. I like people who shave their hair. The athlete looks like he is praying or disappointed. The athlete looks like he is lost. On the t-shirt I see a big number. I can see the background and foreground.

An athlete is all by himself in the foreground. Maybe he's crying because he's lost. Maybe he is praying to God. The people at the back of him are looking at him. I smell the green grass. I hear the grass blowing. I am thinking i want to cheer him up. That man's hair is black. The man has stretchy blue pants. He is disappointed. The people are cheering happily.

I see an athlete by himself. The people can smell the food that they are eating. The boy can hear the crowd cheering for him. When he is kneeling he can feel the warm grass. I am thinking that he is crying his tears out because he is happy that he won the race and he is kind. I can see some other people in the background playing football and some are racing. I can see flags in the background. He is wearing tight blue shorts.

The Sad Athlete

I see a sad athlete, he is in the foreground. His hands are over his face. I think he is praying hard because he didn't do well. I smell food and drinks. I can hear people clapping and cheering. I feel sad because maybe the people are cheering and clapping for another athlete. I'm thinking that he lost.

I see an athlete's finger glowing. It is dark in the stadium. I smell their smelly sweat, food and drinks in the big stadium. I feel Jesus giving the strong man strength. I hear people and family cheering, but not for him. I see a man wearing tight stretchy blue short pants. I smell their clean clothes. I hear the wind blowing the flag of a country, like Tonga. If there was Tonga I would be screaming but Tonga wasn't there. So I was cheering for Usain Bolt. Usain Bolt is the fastest man in the whole wide world. I feel sad because when you lose it is sad but when you win you feel happy.

I think people are cheering about the man who has won the race. He is kneeling on the soft, green grass and crying and happiness. I can smell that the man is sweaty after running so fast and the sun makes his wet skin shine. The noise of the people gets louder and louder because they want to see him get his gold medal.
I think he may be praying and saying thank you to God for helping him run fast. Perhaps one day I will win a race and get a gold medal too.

A Disappointed Man

I can see an athlete feeling sad. A man wearing blue, stretchy shorts and soft, black, short hair. I can smell the sweat from the man. I can hear the crowd cheering for someone. I can feel tiny tears coming out of his eyes. I am thinking he is disappointed.

An Exciting Event at Mt Smart Stadium
On a Tuesday foggy morning Room 4 and 5 went to Mt Smart Stadium. It was a mini Olympic games. Room 4 and 5 followed the helpers and teachers. I was happy. Our group of four’s went to the long jump. The lady had a sand rake and pushed the sand. Secondly the whole team saw the oval. I was excited because Anna-Lisa’s mum was in group 2. When the lady said ‘change’ she called it out on the loud speaker. At football group two got six goals, I was happy, nervous and hungry. The whole school saw the flags. Anthony was excited to see the Japanese flag. Last of all my favourite part was sleeping.

Going to Mt Smart Stadium
On Tuesday morning Room 4 and Room 5 went to Mt Smart Stadium. I felt nervous when I first saw Mt Smart Stadium. I was very happy. We went with the helpers. First of all we went to football. It was cool because we won all of our games. After that we went to the long jump. It was covered in sand and I was laughing when I fell down. The shot put ball was heavy. I got a goal and the others got jealous. I was the goal keeper. After that we went running. I came second. My favourite part was when I was doing the long jump. I was very hungry when we came back from Mt Smart. It was foggy when we came back from Mt Smart. I was very tired. I liked the shot put because I had beaten Kalaine. We won all of our games. I slipped on the track

An Exciting Event at Mt Smart Stadium
On a foggy morning we went down the path to go to the bus so we could go on the trip to Mt Smart Stadium. There were five events. They were football, athletics, shot put, long jump and a relay at the back of the stadium. When it was finished we went back to school and we got dressed so we can go and work again. My favourite part was running because I kept coming first and second.

An Exciting Event at Mt Smart
On Tuesday morning Room 4 and 5 went to Mt Smart Stadium. First we travelled by bus. When we got there was saw other buses. After that we walked down the stairs, then we sat on the stand. Then my team went running. I was the last. I wish I had won because I kept losing. After that my group went to the shot put. The coach helped us know what to do. My favourite part was the shot put because I got it half way there but I liked the running best. Then it was time to change. When we finished the shot put we did the long jump. I was excited before when we did running. The man pressed the starting pistol.I was hungry. There were flags too. I was nervous because I didn’t know the other schools were coming and I didn’t know them. The lady was holding the sand rake. I was tired. In the middle there was a big oval. Then the lady spoke in the loud speaker. Finally it was going home time. Everybody was so tired in the bus.

An Exciting Event at Mt Smart Stadium
On a foggy morning Room 4 and 5 went to Mt Smart Stadium. When I got there i felt nervous. I liked the football. Hendrix got one goal. Courtney got two goals! Then we went to the relays. I was so tired when I did the relays. It was fun. The announcer told us what to do. I liked the long jump because I can jump as high as I can go. My favourite part was the running because I like running. I don’t like the football because it was hard. We only won one time. I saw some flags. Then we arrived back to school sleepily in the bus. I was really hungry when I went back to school. I was happy because I came first in the running.

On a foggy Tuesday morning Room 4 and Room 5 went to Mt Smart Stadium. First of all Room 4 got changed into their sport clothes. When we had finished changing we went to line up. Next we hopped into the bus to go to Mt Smart Stadium. When we arrived at Mt Smart Stadium I felt nervous because I didn’t know what we were going to do at Mt Smart Stadium. Then we walked to get into 5,1,2,4 and 3 in a group. The best thing I liked about the long jump is because I haven’t jumped that long before. Next we went to the runningand I came last because I am not fast enough.

An Exciting Event at Mt Smart
On a Tuesday morning I was excited. Room 4 and 5 went to Mt Smart to play mini Olympics. First I played in the first round my team got a goal. I felt sleepy. I went to the long jump, I ran as fast as I could. I was nervous to be the goal keeper. My favourite part was the shot put and the football. I liked the oval. I was the Pilipino flag. I ran on the running track. We caught a bus to school. I was sleepy and tired. It was an exciting day.
