Beep the bus had stopped, and everyone came spilling out of the buses, in big large clumps, yapping along the way to the, meeting grounds, where the first event would start, the 1500m race.
All the year 6, 7, and 8 students started walking in groups to the 1500m track, the 7s went up 1st. And got in their positions.
On your marks, get set, says dean, the caregiver, as he loads his gun, BANG! The runners start of at a reasonable pace, making each stride of the 4 laps count. The are onto their 2nd lap now, faces looking red. Two girls in the race, overlapped 3 other girls from the school. The rest of the school watching goes wild and cheers their names while others cheer for the girls in first place almost making their 3rd lap.
The three girls in the front, all sprinted even harder, trying to get to the 3rd lap first, soon reaching it seconds later, everyone clapped and cheered, almost falling off the edge of their seats, and all of a sudden the girls started sprinting, pushing themselves to the finish, WOOHOO cheers the crowd. 1st 2nd and 3rd placings are taken, there is only 1 spot left, fourth.
I see two girls battling it out, Ella and Chloe, sprinting to the end, as hard as they can, and Bang 4th and 5th placings are gone to Ella and Chloe, Chloe coming in 5th and Ella coming in 4th.
As the girls come off the field they all smile with great grins, they were all really happy, that they had accomplished the 1500m race.
Soon they came onto the long jump pit, they all lined up in a big long wonky line in a special order.
Then the coach said up first, kendyl, she ran up and jumped a 3.42, very impressive, soon, it was rivers turn, coming in 2nd, she made a very impressive jump aswell, 3.78, WEllDONE! Next it was Ashley’s turn, she ran up at top speed, just missing the record mark, but coming in the 1st place, Well Done guys.
Later that day, the year 7 girls went off to the high jump course. The ladies lowered the high jump pit and called up the first person to jump, kendyl. She made a astounding jump and made it over the bar safely hiring the expectations for everyone.
After everyone had had a go making it over or not, we were up to the final four. Kendyl, RIver, Ashley, and Steph. Kendyl started and made a great jump, making it over the bar, followed by an amazing act by Ashley, making it over. Now it was down to the two girls, river and steph, River went first, knocking down the bar. Steph was up next, she jumped over but knocked it down, so both girls tied 3rd place.
Down to the only two girls that made it, kendyl went up first, hitting the bar down and making a 2nd place. Ashley, coming in 1st made the jump and beat the record by, 7cm, WOW.
Straight after the high jump the girls went to shot put, where Ashley again came, 1st and beat another record, for the year 7 girls.
Soon it was the end of the day and it was time for the relay, starting in lane one was Jessica running for kowhai, in lane 2 it was Leche rimu, in lane three was Ella running for Kuari, and in lane four was river, running for Totara. On your marks said dean, get set bang, All the girls sprint down the 100m track, and quickly handed the batter to the next teammate along. All the students in the school clapped and cheered for their houses, GO KUARI, GO RIMU!
GO KOWHAI, TOTARA! The last people sprinted to the end pushing Kuari in 3rd Rimu in 1st Totara in 2nd, and kawhai in 4th! Congratulations to them!

We are having a meeting
With all the kids in town
So we can go trick or treating
We beg for candy
Some say yes
Some say no
Some are just a mess
We have a lot of candy
We eat it all up
Some have a glass full
Whilst others have a cup
It is time for bed
But then I hear a witch
Was it real?
Or was it just a glitch?
Yesterday was so much fun
So we had a lobster
But then so suddenly
We see a monster
Is it a pumpkin
Is it a goblin
Whatever it is
We are putting it in the bin
It was a wild day
Or was it two?
Whatever, what’s gonna happen is
I’m gonna scare… YOU!!!

Tonight is Halloween
It’s very dark at night
I don’t know how kids can see
Everything is black and white
My mum was up all night
Opening the door
Kids wanting candy
Begging “I want more!”
There is a competition
For the pile with the most height
Everyone was fierce
Some had a fight
Everyone had candy
I shouted “That’s mine!”
To a very creepy dude
Who was dressed as Frankenstein
It was now time to go
Head home and gp to bed
But I went into my brother’s room
And wacked her on the head
Shadows in the darkness!!!

The lights turn off,
In the haunted house tonight,
That gives me quite a fright.
I see a vision of a bat,
Could it be dracula or a rat?
Suddenly I feel teeth Sinking into my skin,
Sucking out my blood from within.
My teeth burst like i’m cursed,
Out pops a fang,
I fly around and start to hang,
I shiver in fear as I should’ve been aware,
In the haunted house tonight.
I soon see a figure creeping up to the house,
I swoop down and catch him like a mouse,
For I am thirsty for blood.
In the darkness of the night,
I take a thirsty bite,
as the helpless boy shrieked in fright,
Cause I am a vampire lurking in the night.
Now that all the rotten smelly children are in bed,
I come in and bite their ugly heads.SO YOU BETTER BEWARE IN THE HAUNTED HOUSE TONIGHT OR YOU’LL HAVE A FRIGHTFUL NIGHT. !!!!
