Name: Annalise
Address: 20A North Pole Avenue
Date: 1 December 2014

Dear Santa,

I am writing this letter to you to ask if you could get me a present for Christmas. This is going to be about What I want for Christmas, why I deserve presents and who doesn't deserve presents.

These are some of the things that I want for Christmas.
  • Puppy
  • Shoes
  • Chocolate
  • Ipad
  • Laptop
  • Money
  • Dog

I think I deserve mostly all of these presents because I have been a good friend, I have tried to improve my work at school and because I've been good at school.

The people who don’t deserve Christmas Presents are people who haven't improved in their work and haven’t been nice .

I hope you understand why I want these presents, I hope you try give some of them to me thank you.

From Annalise :)

Address: 911 Mylittlebow Rd
Date: 10/23/3004


Dear Santa,


This letter is for you because you always snob me when you kept on giving presents to other kids.

For Christmas, I want a Big Monster Truck, Elephant, Bucket Hat, Playstation 4, and a Big Ferrari (better than yours).

I should deserve these presents because I have been good for 7 years and I have done all the stuff you told me to do.

Savelio should not deserve a present because he is a dangerous person and he was on police ten 7 and we should not approach him.

I hope you give me a present or else I will tell everyone your deepest secret.

From your best auntie Tafin-up

Descriptive writing by Justin

The beach.

Descriptive writing


Using the Sensory details Smell,Hear,Taste,Touch, and using similes and metaphors.

Walt: Understand the structure of descriptive writing

At the beach, it has dusty sand that is on the ground and I can see the blue water that pounds into the shore and makes noises like a crash.              
When you taste the seawater it really taste like salt. When I touch the water it feels smooth and it just goes right through my fingers and the sand feels rough.

I can hear the birds making noise, I can hear the water pounding onto the shore and people talking whenever they play sandcastles and other stuff.
When I go into the water and when I go under the water it smells like salty water.
.
                                         THE END :)

A mother is a person, who will take you to place’s you want to go, let you go when she ready. Right from my heart...It has three little words “I love you”.

Mothers Day by Paul

Today I will be talking about my beautiful Mother, because it is nearly Mothers Day.

When I see my Mom everyday it is one of the best moments of my life because she is beautiful like a rose, she is pretty like the stars at night.

Her food tastes like it is Christmas everyday, especially when it was her awesome delicious  custard pie with whip cream.

She smells nice when she put her lovely perfume on, sometimes it give me a headache but most of the time it smells like red strawberries. When I hear her singing it brightens up my day.

NZ Breakers by Rosrine

NZ BREAKERS!!!


Just after morning interval the entire school lined up. We rang the bell because we just learnt that we were having special visitors.


“Everyone follow me to the courts quietly”, Mrs Williams announced. I saw two Baradene Juniors standing right beside the court gate I was wondering why they were here.


A few minutes later I looked along the parking lot and I saw a big grey van coming up the steep driveway. Two boys hopped out of the van and they were wearing NZ Breakers singlets, “Hey that looks like the man that use to be our basketball coach, and he was here with Bruce”, I whispered to Annalise and Alecia.


The two TALL MEN walked into the court with a bag of 6 shiny basketballs that had NZ BREAKERS written across it. The tall men stood in front of us and they were introducing themselves and telling us about them. Their names were Duane, Bailey and Daryl Corletto they were all gigantic.


Fact 1: Duane Bailey’s height is 196cm and his position for Basketball is Power Forward.
Fact 2: Daryl Corletto is 198cm and his position for Basketball is Guard.


Once Duane and Daryl finished introducing themselves, they asked if we all had any questions. One of the questions were inspired them to play basketball and what sport did they play before basketball?


Before Duane played Basketball he played Rugby but then he gave up Rugby to play Basketball. Straight after we asked them questions we played a game called Red light ,Green light. How you play this game is if the person who is not playing says Green light, that means run and if he or she says Red light while you are running, and you move then you are out and you have to start all over again.


After playing Green light, Red light We sat down quietly and and listened to Daryl. “If you win in this game we will give you a ball to take home”, Daryl shouted.


The game that we were going to play with our special visitors was a game called Dribble Knockout The people who won and got a ball was, Viliami, Frank, Laki, Marastella, Esupio and Albert.


Annalise and I ran to class and grabbed our writing book so Daryl could sign it. Daryl signed my book and I was so happy, Duane Bailey signed my hat and it was so awesome.


The Best highlight of my day was getting autographs and taking pictures with them.
Fact 3: Duane Bailey’s Current Season Statistics are (PPG 1.5, APG 0.3 and RPG 0.5) and his Career Stats are the same as his Current Season Statistics.


Fact 4: Daryl Corletto Stats are (PPG 8.7, APG 1.1, and RPG 0.9).

THANK YOU FOR READING MY NZ BREAKERS RECOUNT!!!!!

The Breakers by Alecia



Everyone rushed like a herd of Elephants to Lineup as soon as the hand bell rang. We were extremely excited for this special event. This event was that the New Zealand Breakers were coming to our school!!

On a awesome Monday afternoon there was a good vibe because everybody was really excited for the New Zealand Breakers to come!! It wasn’t the whole team coming it was just 2 people. The 2 people were Duane Bailey and Daryl Corletto. Duane’s position was Power Forward and Daryl’s position was Shooting Guard. DUane was from West Auckland, New Zealand and Daryl was from Melbourne, Australia.

This was a really awesome opportunity for us and we really enjoyed it. After the hand bell rang everybody settled down and Mr Coakley reminded us about having good manners and being respectful to our visitors. When Mr Coakley finished his reminder we were escorted by our teachers to the Tennis Courts. When they had finally arrived everybody was freaking out because they couldn’t believe that it was actually them!! They were extremely tall and their shoes were gigantic!!

They also came with a bag of Basketballs. When we all settled down Daryl and Duane finally spoke. They said that people could win the Basketballs with their signatures!! People were really excited for this. But we had to play games and compete to win.

We played 4 games and my favourite game was Dribble tag. In this game there were 6 people that had to dribble around with the basketball, while running and trying to tag people. If you got tagged then you are out and then you will have to sit down. This is my favourite game because I had a lot of fun during it.

At the end we also did a little Quiz. We had to answer the questions and if we got it right then we would win a wrist band. When everything was over we had a few photos and Duane and Daryl was kind enough to sign our School Hats and our books. Some people only got 1 signature and some people were lucky enough to get both of their signatures.

My highlight of the day was playing all of the games because I felt like it will really help us with our Basketball skills. I felt really pleased because this was really fun. To me this was a really cool experience and I will just like to thank the people that could give this opportunity to us.

New Zealand Breakers by Catherine

New Zealand Breakers On a lovely afternoon we had a special guest visiting Saint Pius X. They were from the New Zealand breakers. It were only two members that came to represent their team and they were Daryl Corletto and Duane Bailey. Daryl comes from Melbourne, Australia and Duane come from West Auckland. Daryl’s position in basketball is a guard and his height is 193cm, he weighs 87kg and he is number 3. Duane’s position in basketball is a power forward, he weighs 87kg, his height is 196cm and he is number 11.

When they finished introducing themselves they got us to warm-up because we were going to be playing some games. The winners of the games won a breakers ball and hand band. Everyone was having fun competing for the prizes. We also played another game called Red light, Green light. Green light, Red light was easy to play when Duane says green light we all have to try to run to the other side of the court, If he says red light everyone has to stop until he say green light again, if you're still moving when its red light you have to start again. It was very hard to win this game because Duane kept changing the lights quickly.

When we all finished playing games we all came together and sat down. We got to ask Daryl and Duane about their life.. The highlight of my day was playing Red light, Green light because everyone was being nice to each other and not cheating. The bad thing that I didn’t like about it was when people were pushing each other and making people cry. But besides I had lots and lots of fun and people were very elated because they were laughing and having fun.

What 3 things did you like about the book?
*Firstly I liked how they all had a sad face when the mother said it’s time for them to live on there own because they are big enough. They were so sad to leave their parents thats why they had a sad face.
*Secondly I liked how the Big Bad Wolf blew down the 1st little piggy's house in just one blow, but it was kind of sad for the 1st and youngest piggy.
*Lastly I liked how the Big Bad Wolf was trying his best to blow down the Oldest piggy’s house. He thought he could blow it down in one blow but it didn’t because the oldest piggy’s house was built in bricks. I liked how he was struggling by trying to blow down the oldest piggy’s house.

What was your best part?
While reading this book my best part so far was when he was struggling by trying to blow down the oldest piggy’s house. I liked how he kept trying and trying.

Who was your favourite character?
My favourite character was the 3 little pigs because they were brave and too smart for the Big bad Wolf when building the last house in bricks

The shark and the man By Illaisaane

On a Saturday morning there was a man named Tom who  lived in New Zealand. It was a very hot day so Tom decided to go  kayaking. Tom packed his stuff and drove away in his car.
When he got to the beach parked his car and he stood in the sand and  checked whether or not the sea was calm. He was still standing there and he suddenly saw something black and it was moving inside the water, he then ran to his car , got his stuff and prepared to go into the water. When he went into the water he noticed it was already neck deep.



He paddled toward to the black thing that he saw earlier on. When he got closer to the black thing it disappeared deeper into the sea. As Tom was paddling he saw the black thing coming fast as it came closer Tom began to notice that it was a  big shark, he slowly turned around his kayak so that he was facing the shore. While Tom was watching the Shark he notice  big waves started to come in. Tom did not want to paddle because if the Shark saw him the Shark would try to chase him. As the waves were coming Tom saw that the waves were moving him closer to the shore, Tom was happy. As the Kayak was moving closer to safety Tom turned back to see where the Shark was, Tom saw the Shark right behind him.    


Tom was very scared because the Shark came closer and closer until the boat stopped, Tom looked forward and noticed that he was ashore and the the Shark was beside him in the sand. He took the Shark home and cooked it .  THE END.

Narrative by Alecia

“Wow what a beautiful day for kayaking and Fishing!!” Said Kate as she woke up and opened the curtains.

Once upon a time there was a Woman named ‘Kate.’ She was on a trip in Hawaii!!! What a great place to be. She had been in Hawaii for 2 days and it was Awesome!! So far she went for a wonderful swim at the beach, she had a fancy dinner and she had a soothing bubbling  bath with scented Candles around her.

She was having the time of her life. So when she woke up she decided to go kayaking. So she went for a nice quick shower put on her clothes and she rented a Kayak.  This was going to be her first time going kayaking, she was very excited.

On her way to the beach she bought a fishing rod, some bait for fishing and then headed off to the beach. When she got to the beach she saw a man waiting there. It looked like he was waiting for her. He had a name tag on his shirt. His name was ‘Mitch.’

She walked up to him and said, “hello my name is Kate. Are you waiting for me?” Then he replied,  “actually I am waiting for you. Hello my name is Mitch. We came here with your Kayak you rented for 1 day. I will be teaching you how to use the Kayak.” After when he taught her how to use it she headed off into her Adventure.

So she left the shore and kayaked and kayaked and kayaked, until she came to a stop and said to herself, “well this looks like a good place to fish.”  So she waited and waited and waited until she felt something tug towards her. She got so excited that she started to pull.

But the thing that she didn’t know that the fish that she caught was a Great  White Sharks Lunch!! Uh-oh she is in big trouble!!! When the Great White Shark saw the fish run away he got really angry and chased after it. When the fish got closer and closer she could she this blue and black shadow chase right behind it. So when she looked closer she looked at the beady eyes and she realised that it was the Great White Shark!!!

So first she reeled the fish in as quickly as she could and she sped off kayaking like lightning. She knew that she had to give the Shark’s fish back so she stopped kayaking and she threw the fish back in the water. After that the Shark stopped and he glared at Kate then he swam away.

Well it was nearly time for sunset and Mitch said to bring in the Kayak before sunset. She was unhappy because she didn't get to catch any fish but she also had a great adventure!!! So she kayaked back to shore where she found Mitch waiting for her. So she gave the Kayak back to Mitch and she headed back home. She got into bed got very comfortable and wondered what her next adventure was going to be!!!
