Tahuna Torea

Introduction:Tahuna Torea is at the end of West Tamaki Road, Glendowie. It’s a very special habitat to migration Godwits. There are two lookouts in Tahuna Torea. Many families go to Tahuna Torea to feed the animals. Everyone should look out for the signs to begin your journey. You can go through the bushes quietly because when you bump the trees all of the insects fly up which makes it easier for the fantails to catch their prey. We should always keep the Wetlands so the birds don’t become extinct.

It was as cool as the breeze brushing against my face.
The Pukeko was limping as if a dog has bitten it’s leg.
Mangroves are New Zealand native trees.
Kahikatea is use to make butter containers.
Tahuna Torea is a very beautiful place to visit with our family.
All of the students were noisy like a child screaming up and down the street.
Many birds were not seen by anyone as if someone was playing hide and seek.

Breakers stumble in Perth as Cats come up big

The New Zealand Breakers had their seventh game in Perth on Thursday night. The defeat drops the league-leading. But they started the game very well. Perth's three-game losing skid as they improve to 4-3.
'But it was then the Cats stepped up their game, crashing the boards to earn a succession of second-shot opportunities and getting that trademark swarming defence going to limit the Breakers to just eight points in each of the next two periods.That saw a one-point deficit turned into a 21-point hole heading into the final stanza, and from there the Cats were never going to let that slip in front of another massive home crowd at the new Perth Arena.'

Guy Fawkes Night

Hooray! It's Guy Fawkes Night and people are going to the shop to buy fireworks for their families. The shops are full of people. Children are full of excitement and ready to watch the fireworks burn. Last night my family and I had some fireworks. When I was at school mum and aunty went to the shopping mall to get some groceries. Eventually they saw some fireworks on sale. Finally school was over and it was time to wait to until it was night so people can watch them appear in the atmosphere. 

Did you have a lot of fun watching the fireworks appear in the air?
