London Olympics

The Best Dessert Ever

The weather was as good as gold. The blazing fiery sun shone down on me.
“Who’s up for an ice-cream?” My mum enquired. As quick as a flash I zoomed into Wendy’s away from the heat. Patiently, I waited as my mum ordered my super mega sundae.
My hungry eyes stealthy spied the lady carefully serving my yummy ice-cream. Whipped cream oozed from the noisy machine. Hundreds and thousands sprinkled proudly on top with a topping of delicious chocolate sauce it drips down the ice-cream like a flowing river.
Gleefully, they hand me the masterpiece it was immense! The shiny silver spoon pokes out the side perfectly. Slowly I devouir it down like a hungry monster. Evrey single bite is like gold. Mmmm! Whipped cream slid down my body releasing a massive burst of lusciousness. I wonder if mum will let me have another one?

This is my Geogreeting that I created.

The Battle

1. Setting Up
2. Battle
  3. Bell Rings, Battle Over
Gracefully, the wild wind runs through the grass towards the trees. Me and my friends raced to the best spot (like my mum always says early bird catches the worm.) Surprisingly, the castle from yesterday’s massive battle was still standing. (we are going to win this!) Collecting grenades (which were actually pinecones) guns and more weapons we piled all of them up in one corner.

All ready to go, our battalion secured the premises. Aggressively, the battle begun! Grenades were exploding like popcorn. Enemies were lions growling at us. We scurried around like hard working solider ants (they wont take our land!)

Briinggg! Briiinng! The noisy bell alerted us that the battle was over. We are victorious! Stealthy, looking back at the horrendous battleground we gave our soliders a pat on the back. Now that’s a battle to remember.

My Dance Competition

My dance performance was today at Mangpapa school at 6:30 I was so nervous about it. It was  such a blast I will tell you what happened my hands and legs were quivering like jelly as i stood on stage and stared out towards the crowd my heart beated so fast I couldnt breathe. We done our first dance check completed,then we done our 2 dance check completed.After that we all gathered together gave out so prizes I didnt get a prize but thats ok. We all had a big kai that was amazing!!!!I cant wait until our next performance.

My new shoes

Slowly I slipped on my new stylely shoes that gleamed in the bright ball of flame as I dawdled slowly underneath the sunlight.My eyes gleamed as my shoes outshined the whole galaxy.People stared at me like I was from a whole diffrent universe.Suddenly, out of the blue big drops of rained cried down from the sky.
"My shoes" I mumbled glumly as the rain dripped all over them making them soaked.

Big puddles stood in my way and ozzy thick brown mud.It's raining cats and dogs my mother would say.The sunlight beam had dissappeared behind the cloudy dark shadow of a thunderstorm.I've got to get inside my shoes echoed in my head loudly.

The door of my house stared at me giggling with laughter.I sprinted like a hamster in a ball struggling to climb the steps to the front door.Angrily, the steps grabbed me and pulled me down.My time was running short I had to get to the front door.Out of the blue the sun came back from its hiding spot.Phew! that was a relif.
