My Experience at the Cluster Rugby Tournement

I had a great time at the cluster rugby tournament. I played in the overs and our captain was Eneasi. First I did some stretches and warm ups with the team, we were getting ready for our first game.  Before we walked to the field we went through the rules just to make sure everyone knows what to do in the field.  

We verse four teams which was Panmure Bridge, Glenbrae, Roportaka and Tamaki.  Our first match was against Panmure Bridge on field four we found them very easy and kept them scoreless.  After that we were against Glenbrae, Glenbrae gave us a good try but ended up short only by one try because they rely on one person instead of using the whole team.  We were undefeated so far in the tournament.

Roportaka was next in our list they tried their best but they were not good enough and we kept them scoreless.  We had a bye and our team were playing around instead of doing our game plan.  It was time to play rugby Tamaki's defence was tough to break.  When we had the hang of it we used our chances but we played well too late and loss. Our undefeated streak broke.

Our team had a lesson when we play around we won’t know what we are doing. We made it to the semi finals and we were against Glenbrae.  We won and kept them scoreless and made it to the finals the weather turned ugly.  Tamaki was beating us by one try then game over the game stopped early because of the rain and ended up coming second.  I was happy for our team and how we played as a team.

Cross Country

St Pius X school was doing cross country. There is always a lst, 2nd and 3rd. There are also helpers   Cross country is a one year event.  Cross country is a sport event that involves long distance running.   When you are running towards a driveway look before you run to see if there's a car reversing out and when dogs are barking walk past it until you're a little far from that dog then run.  The whole school gathered together in the tennis courts. Each person runs on their age group.  

First my age group was running. age 9 to 13  had to run around the block. My age group ran around the block twice.  There is always a person who starts the race.  Go! I paced myself down our school driveway and turned I try to keep up with the others but I wasn't fast enough to keep up.  

Every time I get tired I power walk until I get my breath back.  The 2nd lap I ran up the hill and power walked down. The helpers were cheering me on like I was on the Olympics long distance running.  I ran up our school driveway and ran to the courts I didn't make it to the top 5 to score a point for my team.

The juniors were running around the field I was cheering the juniors during their long distance run.  After the juniors cross country we went back to our classrooms and tidied it up.  Mr Coakley announced the winning team on Friday, the winning team was Tuis.

Ascott - Portfolio 2013 Recount Writing

1st time in the swimming pool.

Today was my first time in the swimming pool.  While I was walking towards the tent I saw water dripping like I was in the street walking on cold pouring rain.  I walked up the stairs it was like I was walking on the plank falling to the water with sharks.  As soon as I stepped in the water it was warm like a blanket covered me.

When I swam to the other end it felt like I was doing snow angels on warm snow.  First we had to do streamline Mrs Tui called my number I took a deep breath then swam under the water I kicked my legs as fast as I could. Next we had to freestyle I felt like I was Michael Phelps I was alright but not good enough.

So Mrs tui splitted us to group of three groups.  I was groups with Catherine and Tevita Fohe.  Catherine was our leader she teaches us how to do freestyle properly.  After we had 2 minutes free play I was practicing my freestyle.  When Mrs Tui said ” to hop out of the pool ” I ran  quickly up the stairs and dressed back on my uniform.   


Ascott - Portfolio 2013 Description Writing

My Description ( My Dad)  
I am learning to write a description writing with describing words.

My father rocks my world.  My father has black curly hair, brown eyes and a gold tooth.  My father is a bit tall and he usually wears a t-shirt with track pants. He is a bit roundish but just the way I like it.

My father is a smart person and a supporting father because he makes sure I have everything I need for school.  My father is a man of his word when he promises me he would buy me new things he would do it the following week.

My father is a fit and healthy man he runs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on the Mountain or at the block on his street.  My father is a hard worker because he provides food for my family and he pays the bills.  My father is a bad cooker because sometimes he cooks the meat undercook or it gets burnt.

Every time when I look at my father he has a big smile which lights my day.  I love my father I’ll always remember the happy and fun things we had. Thats why my dad is special to me and I’ll treasure that.
