Cross Country: The Fight To The Finish Line

During the past few weeks Pt England School  have been training for the Cross Country run that we did yesterday. Each year we have a Cross Country run just like every other primary school/intermediate to see who are the top 3 runners of their year.Then the top 3 runners go through to inter-zones. Any-ways it all took place at 2:00pm on the field and reserve and finished at 3:00pm. 

Just before it was time to make our way to the hard courts we all made our way to the changing rooms and had something to eat.  Everyone represented their colours, Tainui (Blue), Takitimu (Yellow), Te Arawa (Red), and last but not least Mataatua (Green). Our run was about 3km but unfortunately the year eights run was just a little bit longer 3.5km.  

As I headed to the start line Mr. Burt instructed the Year 7 girls to take their place. After he demonstrated to us what and where we'd be running he told us to take our places at the start line. " On your marks, Get Set, GO". Mr Burt Yelled. We were of, zoom!!. As fast as we all could we raced, overlapping each other and shoving we all just wanted to get it over and done with.

At the end of the day the Cross Country run was really easier than I actually thought. After all our hard work of trying our best and pushing our self's to the limit it all payed of at the end. Hopefully next year the run is as fun as it was this year.  I think next year I am going to try improve on pushing myself a bit more so that next year I will improve a bit better.

Creative Strand Reflection - P.M.I

During the past 3 terms or so the senior block have been working on making movies. This week the theme was all about  "Love" we had to either make an MTV, a painting, story, or other things  that show  "Love"  in it's own way. 

* A Lot of movies had funny endings
* Need better costumes
* Using flashbacks
* There were a lot of good actors and singers
* Some of the footage got blurry
* Actors played other actor’s parts
* People used different angles in the movies
* Some of the shots were too long and boring
*  Facial expressions
* Movies were all interesting and all had a story to it
* Camera always shaking
* Some of the movies used some olden day type theme
* Good lip sinkers
* People talking and distractions in the background
* A Lot of well known songs were used

Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter

 Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, or as we all know her as Beyonce was born September 4th, 1991. She is mostly known as American singer, song - writer, and actress. To make a start in pursuing her dream, she started to enter dancing and singing competitions.  A few years later when they had finished realising what TALENT Beyonce had, they realised an album called "Dangerously In Love"  in 2003 which sold at least around about 11 mil;lion copies.

3 years later in 2006  Beyonce was a cast in the "Pink Panther" . In 2008  Beyonce was in love with Jay-Z and so he proposed and they got married.  Years later she released  "Run The World",  "Love On Top", "Listen", and many more than I haven't named. She is a well known lady all over the world. A lot of people mostly have been talking about the latest gossip actually, it was that Jay-Z and Beyonce introduced Blue Ivy Carter into the world.  Hopefully she will be  a talented person just like her mother and father.
