Narrative of the Beach

Hi my name is Joshua, I have a little sister, my mum and my dad. My dad is a nurse. Today we have a bbq at Point England Beach. It is a sunny day so we are all going with our stuff and togs.

We got there so early. I ran and changed. While changing inside the toilet, I heard a big sound of music. The song was not that bad.

Splashing into the water, I heard a voice that sounds like my mum. “Get back here Joshua”, She shouted, while changing my baby’s nappy. “Can you wait Mum? I’ll come when I am bored”.

Running to the rock, something bad happened.I try to stop but  I slipped onto a real hard rock, it felt like gold. I cried and cried and cried. I didn't even stop.“MUMMY MUM!!!”, I cried with my big lump on my head.Mum was right. I should have some rest.

I saw Mum's feet walking towards me. “What happened?”, she said with a really smooth voice. “I don’t know, I just ran then I slipped”, I said nervously. I thought she was going to give me a hiding. But she didn't.

Mum grabbed me and took me to our car. “Let’s go home”, she said while dumping me into the back. I was still wet but she did not care. We left. Just because my dad works at the Auckland hospital, my head was not well. I told him what had happened.

I had to go to the hospital. The next day it was alright for me to go back home to my family. Yay.

Trick or Treating Narrative

After a good night of trick or treating, we went home. Counting my lollies, my annoying brother snatched the bucket. But luckily I held on the bucket so tight. “Give it back”, I aggressively said. He replied with a bunch of lollies in his mouth, “It’s not yours”. While arguing, we heard mum coming. We didn’t care. “GIVE IT BACK”, I said while snatching the bucket to my side. “GO TO BED”!!! shouted our mum. “ And give those lollies to your older brother”, continued mum.

Smoking Not Our Future

\      People are all about being cool. They smoke because of that reason and because they are influenced by their friends. But they do it without looking into the future. Smoking causes health problems, it can affect how you look and can waste your money.

Smoking is not a good idea because it could cause many health problems. It is known that there are 4000 chemicals that are put into every cigarette. Smoking gives you a higher chance of dying, in fact 4500 people die in NZ every year. For pregnant women smoking is also very bad for the unborn baby.

Cigarette is a also very expensive habit. In shops the price of cigarettes are $15 for one packet. It could cost you $105 a week if you smoke a pack a day. This could also cost thousands of dollars a year. If you are wondering why the government lets people sell them, it’s because he gets a lot of money for each box of cigarettes that is sold. This is because the government has to spend lots of money on the health problems from smoking.

Smoking can also affect the outside of your body. It makes you look old. I watched a video, where there was a man interviewing a lady who looked as old as my grampa. But she wasn't. She looked like she was in her 40’s while my grandpa was in his 80’s. Which is half the age she looked like.

I really think that teenagers shouldn’t start smoking. Even if people in your family smokes I’d advise you to don't start. It is a really strong thing. Once you start you can get addicted to it. So the best idea is to keep away.

Toy Story Wordle

Room 13 has had a fun assembly. Our title is Toy Story. Just like the movie. Well, this morning our class has come up with a bunch of ideas of what you think a toy is.  I think it is something you play with. When we have done writing we copy and paste it on Wordle. My favorite toy is LEGO. Here is a link for you to have a try with WORDLE.
