They went for a quick walk and they also went for a run it was amazing! When they got home they had some fruit’s and they had vegetable’s with some salad then they went to sleep.

They went outside but there brother was gone so they went looking for him they first check the bush second they checked his room then they checked his friends house they still didn't find him so they told there parent’s then dad said everyone come on let’s go look for him.  

Mum was so so worried but couldn't find him any where at all  they went to the police house and they asked the police if they can help. So the police said yes of course I can help so they went and they found him he was in the bush hidden by some boy’s from his school.

His mouth was rapped with tape and they tied the rope around his hand’s so they took the rope of his hand’s and they went to the hospital and said if they can take a look if his blood is alright but when the nurse came out she told us he is dead because his blood was stopped the nurse said the rope was tied tight on his hands  they were really sad when they got home.

Hiwi the Kiwi Narrative

One day it was about time I went fishing again with my friend Armanielle.
We both caught a snapper, they were so long, huge and fat.

My parents said to me and Armanielle “surprised but we didn’t keep it we had to put it back in the sea because my parents said the Red Snappers might have babies. So we put the Red Snapper back.

I learnt a lot about fish let me name some fish there is a Red snapper, Red stripe Rock fish, Spotted bass. There are some huge fishes and they might have babies in them. Did you know that there are some fish that humans are not aloud to eat.

Did you know that you have to make sure you bring a wet towel a bucket of salt water make sure it is cold water. So that the fish does not die you have to bring a wet towel because if you a fish you have to put it in the wet towel so it’s scales don’t come off.

Olympic Sport in Rio

Do you know that handball is a sport because seven halves have to be on the game and two people of. The main idea of handball is making sure you don’t take more than three  “steps” Or else you will be disqualified “from the “game. ”

You must have six court players and one goalie.The game was codified at the end of the 19th century in the northen Europe and Germany.The modern set of rules was published in 1917 in Germany, and had several revisions since.

Handball is diffrent from the handball game that kids play this kind of handball is the sport handball that you use with your hands. It is a fun sport to play it is one of the favourite sports that I like it is also a fun game for excercises or warm up games.
