Parumoana swimming sports

On Thursday the 10th of September the parumoana swimming sports was held at cannons creek pool. 6 schools competed including Papakowhai, Plimmerton, St Theresa's, Adventure, Discovery and pauatahanui. Papakowhai won. When we got back to school Mr Smith brought the trophy to the rest of our classroom so they could see our brilliant prize. The races were freestyle, backstroke, breath stroke and butterfly. There was also a relay that everyone took part in. The years that were there were year 5's and 6's. I hope we win again next year!

Painting/picture poems

A sunny day on the beach. 
I decided to go out. 
The trees sway as a cold wind sweeps down the road. 
I walk across,ready to spring away from a car. 
The sand is soft under-foot with shells poking out. 
Seaweed washed up on the beach. 
Crabs scuttling across the sand  
Sea air hits me in the face,the sweet smell clogging up my nose. 
I walk away at the end of the day,leaving footprints in the sand. 
Off I go,on my way home. 
Goodbye,goodbye soft sand on the beach,the wind,the air and the fish in the sea. 
By Hannah.  :)
