Rhyme about self driving cars.
Self-driving cars, they drive themselves.
It is very swell. If you want you can even buy twelve.
Some people think walking is not great.
So set up the date.
To buy a self-driving car and drive around with your mates.
Self-driving cars go super fast.
The radio can go up to BLAST!
Self driving cars are very flash.
Just make sure you don’t crash.

Ugh the garden party was so fun but not cleaning everything up after it was finished, there was cake everywhere and all the food was on the ground. I don’t know why we had the idea of a food fight. I only joined in because I wanted to get payback Larissa.
11 Hours Before…
It was a early in the morning Hannah and I were out to set up everything for the garden party. We hung up the ribbons and lights and we were just waiting on the food. Hannah set up the water slide and games and was watering the garden. The caterer arrived and her name was Larissa I didn’t invite her to my party because Larissa and I have a terrible history. I asked her why she was there and she told me that she was the caterer but I knew it was a lie because they don’t open at this time. Larissa just wanted to ruin our end of the year party. Hannah asked her where is the food she hesitated almost for a minute, until she figured out that she came early with no food so she could figure out how big the backyard is so her company knows how much space they have for the food. 2 hours went by and we finished that lights and everything else.
Then the food arrived and almost everyone was helping out to set up except from Larissa . After Hannah looked over and saw Larissa not doing her job for the day she got angry and disappointed in her once again. 1 hour later the catering service left and we were just waiting for our guest to arrive. I would stand at the front waiting with a list to make sure the correct people arrive. We were so excited that we were allowed to have a year 8 farewell. 18 people showed up and we were waiting on 2 more, until I saw someone else familiar and surprisingly turned up it was Larissa. She came and said that she was invited but we had a huge argument. Until my mother came out and said that it’s fine she could come in, I was so annoyed that she came.
Everyone took their seat as well as Larissa, Leah and I made a toast to thank everyone who came today. I said that we could eat but no that is not what Larissa was thinking, she stood up and made a toast to Leah and I, and said that she is thankful that she got invited which I think is ridiculous because she really wasn’t. After that horrible toast we finally got to eat, Larissa kept blaming us for a terrible party I had enough of what this girl had to say I grabbed a whole cake and shoved it in her face everyone was so shocked. Leah clapped and smiled until she yelled “ FOOD FIGHT” everyone grabbed food of the table and started to throw it, Hannah and I picked up the punch bowl and dumped it on Larissa.
11 hours later
We were cleaning up our mess and then Larissa comes with a piece of paper she hands it to me very happily, I read it and find out that apparently she is related to me…

Thursday 12th, 1992
Today was the day we finally arrived at my favorite place in the world, Dream bay. The amazing fish and chips shop. The great surfing beaches and the best part. The annual fishing trip. Every year we go and spend 3 whole days on the water. Catching fish, eating heaps and just spending time with one another. This year is going to be so much better than the other years. This year my parents have let me and my friends go all by ourselves! 3 nights of partying here we come! When we arrived at the house there was a note taped to the door.
We welcome you to our humble home and hope you have an amazing time on the fishing trip. We hope you and your friends don’t destroy our house in the 4 days you will be staying. Everything is all ready for you and the fridge and cupboards are full of midnight snacks!
We both hope you have lots of fun and have a great time in Dream Bay!
Nan and Pop
P.s our number is 01234567 If you ever need anything :)
The key was under the mat just like every other time has visited. The door unlocked and as we all walked in we were amazed. Last time I was here the floor and walls were being redone and they had no kitchen. Now it’s all tiled and a massive chandelier hung from the roof. We chucked our bags down went to find our rooms. My room was the biggest but I shared with my best friend Liam. After unpacking we decided to go for a walk down to the beach to catch some waves. After we came back, ate something and packed our bag as we are staying on the boat for the next 3 days! As soon as we had got set up on the boat we take shifts watching out for any other boats or strange thing going on the water. I lay here and thought about Mum and Dad back home. I wonder what they are doing. Woah something just knocked on the side of the boat. I checked it out but nothing was there. Another 3 knocks just came! I just lay here thinking it’s my imagination and slowly drifted off into sleep.
Friday 13th 1992
Yesterday was one heck up of a day.
I did loads of things that I enjoyed. Today was even a better day with lots of surprises, scary surprises.
Waking up I was super tired and felt bloated seeing as I ate so much last night. Last night was a rough night for sleeping as I heard random knocking on the boat all night. Breakfast was something I did not have on my mind as I was still full from last night dinner, so I woke up and got ready for the day. Putting on my fishing gear was a struggle as I was tired and felt like going back to sleep but I had a big day planned as I went to the Big reef where the most unique fish are found. I started up the boat and the wheel wasn’t turning, this morning was turning out to be pretty bad so far.
I got to the Reef and started unpacking all of my gear, My fishing rod, bait, water, food and my rain jacket in case it started pouring down. I unraveled my fishing rod and put some bait on the end of my fishing hook and threw my anchor down to the bottom of the ocean and then I started fishing. I waited a few minutes until I felt a small yank at the bottom of my fishing rod. Straight away I pulled up and wound my line up a bit. Then let go a bit and then pulled and wound a bit. Suddenly the rod felt loose and nothing was holding onto the end. I wound my line right up and realized that the whole piece of the line had snapped and there was nothing on the end. Whatever did this was one strong fish. Me and the boys ate lunch and just relaxed for the rest of the day while I tried to fix my line. Liam pointed out that it was Friday the 13th and that we should be careful. It was crack up! All day we just made jokes about horror movies and people's faces. At last, the sunset and it was time to eat and sleep. I took first watch and Liam took the next.
During my watch, I didn’t hear any knocking but when Liam was on his watch, he woke me up saying there was a weird knocking coming from down below under the boat. I knew something was wrong because of last night so we both went to check. We couldn’t see anything so we woke up our other friend, Bruce to do his duty. Liam and I both gave each other scared looks as we drifted into sleep. I woke up to the sound of screaming and the boat nearly capsizing! As I’m running out onto the deck I notice the floor is covered in water stained red. I sprint out only to find half the boat bitten out and Bruce gone. Liam ran out of the cabin like room we sleep in and we both started screaming out Bruce’s name but nothing replied.
Saturday 14th, 1992
Waking up this morning I felt like I was going to die. I was so scared Bruce was gone and he had died. I felt like crying one of my best friends were gone, gone forever. ‘’What if another one of us got bit or killed, who was next’’. I woke up this morning and felt like the boat was a bit wonky and light. I found Liam panicking as the boat got deeper and deeper.” WE ARE GOING TO DIE THOMAS WE NEED TO GO’’. Still, in my pajamas me and Liam jumped out of the boat. I made sure I had everything I needed especially my diary as it was my prized possession. Me and Liam started swimming as fast as we could trying to get back to shore. Until Liam felt a huge wave of water crash against him and I felt a tug on my leg.’’A SHARK LIAM, IT’S A SHARK’’. I screamed out to Liam. Me and Liam started swimming as fast as we could until we felt like our arms and legs were going to fall off but we still kept swimming, as there was no way me and Liam wanted to die at the age of 14. 10 minutes later I felt safe, safe like I wasn’t going to die, the shark had gone. I could see the beach on the horizon, I was so freaking happy.’’ Crawling on the sand I ran up to my Nan and Pops cabin and I gave them a big hug I was so happy to see them. I told them everything that happened and they were in shock. My Nan saw that I had a big bite mark on my leg and they took me straight to A&E to get it fix and checked out. This was a crazy experience Dream Bay turned into If you wanna die go to here Bay. I might come back to Dream bay for a holiday but definitely not for swimming or fishing.

Whale Hunting should be banned!
Imagine you are swimming peacefully in the ocean,causing know harm. Then BAM something sharp hits your skin goes into your body and explodes. The pain is hurting you but isn’t enough to kill you. Then Bam you get hit over and over the pain is killing you but you're still conscious. You get taken on a boat. Have know idea what is happening, you start feeling a sharp pain, again and again. You're getting cut up into pieces not able to make a sound that you are still alive. Reason 1 how many whales get killed a year. Reason 2 hunting has major impact on population. Reason 3 There are no human rights to kill whales.
My first reason is Do you know how many whales get killed a year?
Can you believe 1,300 whales get killed in a year from us humans. That’s a lot. Yeah people kill them to eat them but there is plenty of other food for us to eat, so why the need to eat whales? Whaling also affects the world’s ecosystem. Stabilising the food flow and maintaining a healthy ocean so the rapidly decreasing number of whales are going to have major effects on the ocean's ecosystem. Whales get killed for us to eat when really they are most likely more wanted to look at and study in the ocean then eating them. Whales are beautiful creatures and may go extinct some time soon and we still barely know a lot about them so this needs to stop.
My second reason is, hunting has a major impact on population of whales. If we are going to keep on hunting them and not let them live they are going to come extinct! Just imagine if you were a whale and you were swimming in the sea and some human comes and kills you with a harpoon, I don’t think you would be happy about that would you?. Also Do you ever see whales doing anything to us?... yea I didn’t think so. So then why should we be killing them if they have no harm to us. Japan, Norway and Iceland kill around 1,500 whales between them every year.
My third reason is There are no reasons for humans to kill whales. I never see whales killing us on purpose like we do. Maybe sometimes humans get killed from them but they just think were food or a dolphin or something like that. Yeah you may be saying actually there is it’s for food but is it a we have to eat it or we want it think about that. Only three countries mainly kill whales. But the amount of whales they kill is a lot to much. They may taste nice but why do they deserve this. You could be killing baby whales parents or their kids and they have good memories so it might bother them. This type of fishing is uncalled for and unnecessary.
In conclusion whale hunting needs to stop NOW do you really want these beautiful animals to go extinct??? So just remember over 1,300 whales get killed in a year, whales population keeps on increasing every year and there are no reasons for human to kill whales. So do you really want these Beautiful animals to become extinct.

To my dearest love, John
Since we last spoke, things have become more chaotic. More animals have died, leaving our farms deserted. We are starving away with no food, no water, and no hope of survival. What are we supposed to do now? We can not live like this for much longer. The days are getting colder, the snow has almost covered everything, will this eternal winter ever end? Our crops have all died leaving us to eat nothing but bird seeds, which the kids do not favor.
The kids wait for your return, they cry every night screaming your name. I have taken in 5 homeless children who I found starving by the frozen lake. Crying for food and water, slowly freezing to death. You leaving has made everything very hard for the children, I simply cannot teach them everything a father can. The only comfort we have is the fireplace, we rely on this for little heat. Even though the circumstances we are in are horrible, we still have hope. Hope that things might change, that everything might go back to how it was. Hope for the war to end. But is this what we call home now? Is this what you have left for us?
My love, on top of everything that has happened to us, your grandmother has had it worse. She has become very ill, so ill she rarely wakes up. I sometimes hear her crying in her sleep, crying for you to save her. How do I tell her that you’re not coming back? How do I tell her that you’re not going to be able to save her? I tried to call the town doctor but he was too busy to help us, helping other people I presume. I hope he dies for what he has done, leaving us like this. But as good as revenge sounds, your grandmother doesn’t have much time left. But worst of all, we have no way to save her. So please come home soon. For her, for the children… For me.
But please whatever you chose, don’t stop fighting for what you believe in just because we wish you home. Don’t stop fighting for a new beginning. Don’t stop fighting for a second chance. War is a terrible thing, but remember you are not facing it alone. God bless. Never forget us. Just like we will never forget you.
We love you.
Sincerely your wife
Waitangi day celebration
150 years ago on February the 6th 1840 a group of Maori sailed the seven seas on a waka. They found what we know today as, New Zealand. At first they thought is was a small island in the middle of the sea, but soon discovered that there was more than that. So in 1918 they began a celebration called Waitangi day (the treaty of Waitangi) which celebrates the signing of the Waitangi treaty in 1840.
As they settled in the country they started getting more popular as more people discovered the new land. It was now 1978 we had become a British colony and queen Elizabeth the 2nd was now our queen. Minute by minute day by day and year by year just like christmas we would all the look forward to celebrating the day that New Zealand was found. We all love our little island that we all feel safe on and we are grateful for what we have today.
In conclusion Waitangi day is a day of celebration that we should all start appreciating in the future. We should all know the real meaning of Waitangi day which is a day named after Waitangi Where the Treaty of Waitangi was first signed, commemorates a significant day in the history of New Zealand. Ceremonies take place each year on 6 February to celebrate the signing of the treaty, New Zealand's founding document, on that date in 1840.
