My Beautiful Place

Far beyond the edge of the world is my beautiful place. In my beautiful place there are lots of clouds. It is a party on a Halloween night, but just not an ordinary night... a night with a sun. This beautiful place is somewhere just where the clouds are. There are also fireworks and last, there is a warm fire. This beautiful place feels very hot. I shell let you guess what my beautiful place is right after you read this.

In my beautiful place I can see...candy falling down as if it was going to rain in this beautiful place. I can see heaps of flames coming out of a rocket booster,but this rocket booster is coming from a robot with an axe. I can see a chorister conducting a lullaby.This chorister waves his hands as slow as a turtle. I can also see fireworks. I can see some chocolate on the biggest table in the world. And on the table it has. . .Butter-chicken, Ice cream, Ice blocks, Chocolate, Donuts which are chocolate flavour, cookies and pizza.

In my beautiful place I can taste...I can taste candy-floss that feels as soft as a cloud. I can also taste ice blocks as could as a refrigerator. I can also taste sandwiches. I can taste chocolate donuts. I can also taste Butter chicken.I can also taste junk food like Pizza, Ice cream, Butter chicken, Chocolate and a hot chocolate.

In my beautiful place I can hear...A lullaby being singed by a group of heaven. This lullaby controls everything. That's because it controlled the the rocket booster of a robot. That is why I can hear the rocket boosters so loud it blows my ears out! I can also hear an axe chopping a nice warm pumpkin ready to eat. The controller was a human and it was a robot.

In my beautiful place I can fell...I can feel the warmth of a fire. I can also feel the soft candy floss which is the clouds. I can feel the fresh air. I can also feel the breeze of the wind. I can feel soft clouds under my body that you can eat. I can even feel the warmth of the sun which makes it so hot every person feels like they are in a desert.

Would you dare to came here?

Have you guessed what my beautiful place is yet?

Ireland Information Report

Did you know that the shamrock is one of the most internationally recognised symbols of Ireland? It is said that this four leaf clover brings good luck to whoever finds it.

Did you know that people in Ireland eat Soda-Bread. They eat that for their dinner.
People eat black pudding in Ireland for their dessert. The drink that is often had includes box tea.

James Nesbitt is famous for his acting as a in Ireland. Did you know that Joyce Cary is a writer from Ireland and writes books for adults. Liam Neeson is an actor and is famous for his movies that he has been acting in.

I have discovered that children in Ireland like to bike as a fun activity. They even like to go out fishing for contests and lastly, people dress-up as leprechauns to show that they are from Ireland.

Are you aware that the cliffs Moher in Co Clare over look the Atlantic Ocean and are Europe's highest Cliffs?

Describing Piri Weepu

It was windy as I looked out from the stadium to see Piri Weepu as he. He puts all his strength into this one and only Haka, staring into the other team’s eyes. Piri Weepu moves fast and also moves like a Tornado. When Piri finally finished the Haka it was than time for kick off.

The opposition was ready. Piri Weepu chased the ball when it was kicked. He then had an opportunity to slide into the ball then released the ball. When he crashed and went through the other teams defence line.

In his number nine jersey, Piri Weepu can sometimes be in for first-five just for some goals.

Piri Weepu doesn’t like doing Maths and History but he does like playing touch, golf and driving. Piri Weepu is a good role model to me by never getting a yellow card,sharing the ball so his team mates never get jealous. He is also an elite athlete in his games that he plays.

He always shows good sportsmanship by never getting in to the fights and never ever getting angry at another team.

He is really special to me by representing our country, New Zealand by leading the the Haka really effectively.

Buddy Writting-Welcoming Tonga R.W.C

When I opened the car door,I couldn't open it because their was a stampede of  people singing in harmony.  I could hear singing  in unison in the air,with all of the other people cheering with support.
“Wow,” I thought to myself saying, “is this a Festival?” I could see Tongan flags waving in hands of fans.Others were embracing and hugging a news reporter. There were cars decorated with red and white flags around it.
While we were at the airport the chanting was even louder than the airplane engines.

After all that waiting finally the Tongan team arrived on stage.All their fans welcomed them to NZ(New Zealand) with support.  The Tongan Captain asked his team mates if they could do the Tongan haka and they agreed to do a haka in front of all the people.

After an exhausting day we all drove down the street cheering and departed to our homes. What a beautiful and fantastic day this was.
