The boy who learned how to fly

Once in a  far country called Jamaica there was a boy named Usain bolt. On a Monday a school day bolt was so excited because it was his  first day of school. When he was running to school he was getting chased by a dog. Bolt was so fast the dog couldn’t catch bolt.

When bolt was near his school he was talking to himself saying ‘I don't wanna be late’ ‘I don't wanna be late’. When it was morning tea bolt looked in his bag to grab his lunch but then he noticed that he left it at home. But then bolt sat down on the bench feeling sad and hungry at the same time. Then a man came and told him if he races another boy and wins then he gets to have my lunch. So bolt had a deal with this man.

Then, when bolt got older the man that made a deal with bolt in school became his coach for the rest of bolts athlete life. Ever since bolt was an athlete when he got older. He had won lots of gold medals for coming first in the 100m run. But before he ran his last race for the year he was nervous to race. But then, his mum came and told bolt he could do it he just has to believe in himself.

When bolts mum told him he could do it and believe in himself. Bolt stood up and walked to the starting so that they could start the race. When the race started bolt started jogging then the other athletes ran passed him then bolt looked at his mum and his mum smiled. Then bolt started to sprint then he passed all the athletes and came first again like he always does.

Kayaking Trip

One day on a sunday it was really hot. So a family of six went kayaking. There were two boys and four girls. They went to a beach named rangitoto beach for someone's 20th birthday, When they got there they looked out to the sea and saw the beautiful water. It was so beautiful you could see the sand and shells through the water.

When they got their kayaks out of their van they put it in the water and hoped in the kayak. They went all the way out to the buoy and came back, Then they decided to have a relay.. Karen explained how to play the relay. You have to get into two equal groups of three and then you have to decide how will go first out of the groups. Then you have to kayak to the buoy half way out to sea then kayak back and tap the next person so that person can go and then come back and tap the last person so that they can finish the race of.

They were burning hot, when they got out of there kayaks the sun was so hot when it was shining on their backs and faces they felt like they were burning. So they just jumped into the water and was so pleased that the water was nice and cold. So they had a swim in the beach till it was near six o’clock in the afternoon.
