Sonya's Imaginative Story

“Sonya come here” shouted my mum. “Get ready for church but first go to the back and get some apples for your lunch tomorrow”.“Ok mum, I’m coming” I said walking outside. Before I even started picking I fell asleep. I was dreaming a strange dream and it was about a Feather Land.

It all started when I was picking apples for my mum, I fell into the hole and as I was falling it grew darker and darker and darker. Until BOOM I finally landed. When I looked around it was very, very strange. It had feather trees, strange little creatures hunting around for who approaches the King. I was in feather land.

A little mouse suddenly came up to me, he had two eyes, four feet, six arms and three ears. He gave me a present, it was made out of feathers shaped like diamonds and it had lollies in it. “What is this for?” I asked and “who are you?”. “Sorry for not introducing myself, Hi my name is Sam and I am the King’s servant. He told me to give this to you. Hide it and never give it away, if you break this the world will end our world”. “Ok” I replied nervously, I was scared that I would forget his words.

Before I could ask how to get home, the ground was shaking

“what is happening?” I thought and suddenly I was back home in the garden. I took the present to my room for safe keeping. Sadly one of my little brothers or sisters came in and accidentally broke my gift. I screamed “WHAT DO I DO NOW? it is BROKEN what do I do NOW.” I amazingly heard Sam’s voice “Calm down, what you can do is RUN FOR YOUR LIFE or you can go on an airplane as fast as you can and go to another country, now go before it’s too late and don’t forget to take your family”.

Off we went in a massive rush my Dad drove as fast as he could to get to the airport. When we got to the airport there were already people there. “Fish fingers” I said angrily as we

were pushed and shoved. “Guys look there is a empty airplane right over there” said Dad. Dad was an airplane captain and so he knew all about airplanes. “HURRY UP guys if we want to survive, our only option is die or go on a airplane and survive, so which one die or survive?” I said rushingly. Everyone went with survive and so off we went into the airplane. Unfortunately the plane needed gas but there was no gas stations around. Luckily there was a gas tank nearby. “Wait here guys I will be right back” said Dad. Finally my dad came back. “As soon as he is finished with the gas we can go” said Mum. On the radio they were counting down when America was going to end, they started from “20, 19, 18”. “Hurry up Dad or else we will be destroyed. “5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0” said the radio. BOOM it was shaking like a cow moving side to side, I Thanked God that we had lifted off in time.

We went to our new home town in Auckland, New Zealand Glen Innes. I went to St Pius X School. I opened my eyes to see if it was true that we were safe and it was.

Salote's Imaginative Story

I was asleep when my Dad came and yelled “Come on Salote, come and help me do the garden.” I stood up and went outside with my Dad then I heard my Dad shouted “Dig me a big hole so I can put 13 flowers there”. So I did what my Dad told me to do, I dug a hole and it got bigger and bigger but I fell into the hole.

When I landed the ground felt soft like carpet and I saw lots of Jelly wallpaper and it was so sunny. On the wall it said "this is Jelly land". I saw someone's shadow coming near me, I was so scared I was going to run away but I saw nothing just wallpaper. 

The shadow came closer and closer and said “Hello, I am Jimmy, welcome to Jelly Land” The place was small and lovely and all the people there seemed kind. I looked at him, he was tiny and had two eyes, small ears and he had small arms and legs. He handed me a small box and said “Hello I want you to take this to your land and hide it because if it is lost or broken this Jelly land will be destroyed by evil people, so keep it safe”. So I said “Okay I will keep it safe and I will hide it”. He opened the box and he said “look at this.” I looked inside, it was beautiful. A brown ball and snow coming down with a little word that says happy was in the box. “By the way how do you go out from this place?” I asked. Jimmy said “Wait, I will go and open the door for you okay”. 

Jimmy ran to the door and pressed something that said open and close. He pressed it and the door opened. I run to it and came back to the back yard. I opened my hand and I was still holding the little box so I ran and hid it under my pillow then came back and did the digging again.

Drama TV Presentation 1

In drama this term we have been practising presenting and speaking clearly.  We created little TV reportings about either Tennis or Basketball in small groups.  After we wrote our scripts we did lots of practise and then filmed our work.  We also got a chance to do some editing on the iMacs.  Here is what we finished up with.
