Ishaan & Tony Narrative Writing

Little Bad Red Hood

Once upon a time, there was a little girl called Sarah and she wore a red hoodie and sweatpants, she also lived in Manurewa. Manurewa is a good community except for the times when kidnappers come around. In Manurewa there is a very low educational school and Sarah went to that school. She was at the park playing with her friends after lunch at her house listening to pop music on her iphone 7 plus. She has a lot  of friends and she likes to hang around with them and go to the park.

She received a text message from her mum Kate saying, “Hey Sarah could you go and visit your grandma Jess and buy some cake for her as well because your grandpa passed away the other week. After buying the cake at pak n save because it was 5 dollar week, she wrapped the cake in a box. While she was riding her bike to grandma Jess’s house she stumbled along a black mysterious van. There were three men sitting in the van wearing black hoodies & trackpants. Then suddenly, a white cloth wrapped around her face and she was pulled into the van.After a while she woke up in a dark room with just one light above her. The kidnappers asked her what the cake was for and she said it was for her grandma because she was having a bad time.

All the kidnappers ate the cake except one because one of them didn’t like cakes. After a while the two kidnappers that ate the cake passed out into an induced coma. So the other kidnapper called and ambulance and they went to hospital. The other kidnapper also called the police on Sarah for attempt of murder on her grandma. The police tested the cake for any poisons and they found a very dangerous poison called Arsenic. She was sent a life sentence in jail and her parents were very surprised with what happened to her and what she did. The house got searched for any more poison but there was nothing left.

Narrative for Mr Munro as a 12 year old boy.

A child, a 12-year-old Brett woke up in the morning just like any other day but sad and grumpy. He put on his clothes in very stiff movements and went downstairs for breakfast. As he was pouring milk into his cereal his brother bumped him on purpose. He lashed out and pushed him in the spilled milk that was on the floor. Just then at that moment, he knew he was not going to have a good day. His mother came down in shock with the mess on the floor and Brett’s older brother covered with milk on the floor. Brett’s mother shouted, “ What’s going on here?!”
Brett replied, “ He shoved me when I was pouring the milk and I shoved him.”
His Mother grounded him. Brett just went to his school,  Maidstone primary school in anger and on an empty stomach. As he walked into class he saw his friends, Bruce, Angela and Lawrence playing a game of cricket on the field, He quickly puts everything down and runs straight outside. So they play their game of cricket when Brett realized, he hadn’t finished his homework. He quickly ran inside to see the time: 8:50 am. School Started in 10 minutes. He had 10 minutes to do his homework. He quickly looked around the room. The only people there were himself, Austin the school nerd and surprisingly no teacher. He quickly went to Autin’s desk and asked, “ Can you do my homework?”
Austin replied with a, “NO!”
This infuriated Brett so he started beating up Austin, stressed out and not knowing what to do. Austin realizing he was going to be punched, dodged it and quickly ran away out of the classroom. That's when he saw the time… 8:55. He had now only five minutes to do his homework. So now he has no idea what to do. But then an idea pops up in his head. Maybe he could ask one of his friends. So with 5 minutes left he quickly sprints like a lion hunting its prey to his friends. He asked them and they said “Sure.” Brett was so relieved but then he heard something. Something familiar that goes on a couple of times every day. That's when he remembered. He knew the noise. It was… The bell. He quickly brought all of them inside to do his homework but, The teacher was inside he didn’t know what to do. So he just waited because there was no coming back from it. He couldn’t copy right in front of the teacher. So when the teacher asked for everyone's homework he just waited. The teacher Mr. Whitehead asked him where his homework was. He replied with a classic “ I don’t know.”
Him being the one who hasn’t completed his homework got the cane and the rest of the day with a red bum. He went home in frustration and feeling stupid not finishing his homework. That’s when he remembered that he was grounded and he might get another spanking. He did and had a red bum for the next 3 weeks.
None of this is true as it is a NARRATIVE.

How To Dance Hip Hop Style! By Chloe M

Image result for hip hop
Hip Hop is a style of popular music of US black and Hispanic origin, featuring rap with an electronic backing. Many people know Hip Hop as a competition for the best dancers, or just a fun way to spend time.

Hip hop is a subculture and art movement developed by African-Americans and Latinos from the South Bronx in New York City during the late 1970s. White people unfamiliar with hip hop culture often used the expression “Hip Hop” to refer exclusively to hip hop music (also called “rap”), hip hop is characterized by anywhere from four to nine distinct elements or expressive realms, of which hip hop music is only one element.

For Hip Hop you have to use passion! No one wants to see a really good dancer have no emotion what so ever?! The audience wants to see fiery passion, something that just shows them that you are a great dancer and take it very seriously. Of course you don’t want to be all over the place with heaps of unnecessary emotions. Because Hip Hop is different from Jazz, or Ballet, or any other dancing. In Hip Hop you have use facial features, strong movements and body language.

Image result for hip hopIn Music there is always a beat, and in Hip Hop you have to follow the beat, the only reason people muck up, is because they don’t listen to the beat. Listening to the beat is a necessary part of Hip Hop, everyone should follow the beat so they get good timing and do the right actions. It isn’t very easy trying to follow the beat, but if you just practice, practice, practice, it will look really cool and make you stand out.

Now that you know what Hip Hop is, what passion to use, and to listen to the beat you can go and try out some new Hip Hop moves.

Why you should play basketball.

Since I was 7, I’ve loved the sport basketball. Basketball is a sport where there is 5 player on the court and there is a lot of movement and there are players running everywhere. If you want to play basketball the experiment you would need is a pair of basketball shoes, socks, and a sports t shirt.

In the game of basketball there are a lot of rules. Just some of the rules are 24 second shot clock, back court, double dribble and traveling. There are heaps and heaps of more rules to go, but there are some of the main ones. If you want to take basketball to a high level then you could buy some skins, or a headband, because if you get a arm skin it will make it easier to shoot the basketball, or if you get a head band it will stop all of the sweat going on your head.

When you want to play basketball there isn’t many basketball courts you can and go play basketball, but in Auckland city where the main skate park is, there Is a really big basketball court with NBA hoops. If you want to take basketball seriously then you should go to the counties Manukau basketball trail to try and see if you get into a team, because if you do you will get great coaching and great practices.

After listening to all of the reasons of why you should play basketball, ‘are you’. It’s fun, easy to play and he can get extremely fit from playing the sport.
