My Favourite Athlete!!>

Valerie Adams is New Zealand’s greatest shot put athlete! She won a gold medal in 2008. She is very special to New Zealand. She represented New Zealand.

Valerie Adams may be Tongan or Samoan heritage. She looks like a Tongan to me but heaps of people say she is Samoan. She is a wonderful shot put athlete. She was born in October the 6th and in 1984 in Rotorua!

She competes in the event called Shot Put. She can throw far as! She won heaps of gold medals! This year she won silver but then after wards she found out she won gold medal. She is 1.93 m tall.

She is famous because she is one of the best shot put athletes. She is also famous because she represents New Zealand in the olympics. She is like New Zealands hero!! She weighs 120 kg’s.

My Friends!!

I love my friends because they are cool and are fun to play with. My friends are Giselle, Quziyah, Porscha, Chloe, Katrina, Jouan and Mya!! I always play with them when I have no one to play with. We sometimes play handball.

I always like to come early to school so I can play with them. They are like my heroes. Giselle and I call each other sis. Quziyah and I have been friends for 5 years now. If I want to go library they come with me.

Life Education Van!

Have you ever been to a life education van before? Well if you haven’t then this story is going to tell you all about it! A life education van is a van that we go to and learn about our body and what it needs. The lady that teaches us is Lynn and she also comes along with a giraffe called Harold.

Last week on Thursday and Friday we went and learned about our tinana (body). We learnt heaps of stuff about our body. We talked about our stomach and what I learnt from the stomach was that it breaks down food. Lynn told us about the liver and she said, “If you ever eat any metal stuff then it wouldn’t break it down but if you go to the toilet then it would come out!” We all said “EEWW”!!

My favourite part was when we had to do the banana salute. When we stood up to do the dance I was laughing my face off. Finishing off our banana salute I stopped laughing! Although I was tired I still wanted to do it. Lynn told us that bananas was Harold's favourite food.

If you ever see a van with a giraffe pattern on it then that is the van where you can go and learn about your body and what it needs!!!
