My time at Riverdale

My years at Riverdale has been a smash! With all the great opportunities we've had! Heres one. In term 3 I went to the 2010 DANCE NZ MADE INTER SCHOOL Competition! We were there from 8:45 to 9:32! To be exact. I had as much fun as riding a hippo to the moon! We came first for our category. I was also in the Inter school swimming sports team! we came first with 82 points! AND it was the first time I got into any inter school sports team! In the 2010 New South Whales English and Maths Exams I got credit for English and participation in Maths! The best thing about 2010 or maybe the second best thing is that.............. I AM HEAD OF STUDENT COUNCIL! I really enjoyed the 2008 production I was in 3 acts. 1. Te Puawai 2. Choir and 3. Our class dance. I've enjoyed all of the camps especially Camp David because there was tons of fun activities! My favourite one was the 3 wire bridge and orse riding! I'm going to be very sad when I leave and I am going to miss all of my friends and junior budds and I am really going to miss my Bff Likable Libby because she was a great friend (and a bit of a comedian) I would like to thank every one for making this the best 6 years of my life!Kate

Quiddage

Well Quiddage,where do I start? There have been so many fun memories from Quiddage.

I like quiddage because it teaches you to learn how to spend your money wisely.

Plus all of the great food and activity stores are also so great.

Here is a great food store; L@ Soupers. The L@ Soupers sell soup and bread. But of course I don't like soup, so I just have the bread. There is always different bread, for the small is S10 for the big is S20. There is different types of bread sold at the L@ Soupers. Like nan bread, rotie and slices of white bread. All home made of course.

But this is just one of the many food stores/stalls at quiddage.

Like, The Fizzders. Can you guess what they sell? Well you got it because the fizzders sell the one and only sherbet. But not just any sherbet; its the best sherbet you have ever tasted in like 100,000,000 years!!! Well OK not that many but you get the point.

Fizzders is like the most fast selling quiddage business of all time. They are sold out in like the first 20 minutes of quiddage.

There are not just food stores there are also many other activity shops like; SLING SHOT! Its like the best shop in the whole world!

But the time is up so you'll just have to wait to next time

As I walk along the walk way I feel the cold autumn breeze on my face and arm and legs.All the leafs that used to be Green are now brown, orange, red and yellow.All the leafs are slowly swaying swishing down to the ground. As I walk, I feel as if I was walking through a big arch with lots of leafs falling to the ground. The trees are slowly swishing from one side to another as I stop walking I lie down on a leaf bed. A big gust of wind sunddley blows all the leafs of making a top layer of fresh leafs on me.

My water story.

5.5.10 W.A.L.T: create a picture with our words.
One day the twins...

What? Who are the twins!
Well let me tell you, their names are Benk and Menk.
Any way, while the twins and I were out on the boat (that Menk owned and was driving) knee boarding we decided to stop at my favorite island Plink Plok... The day was September the 1st 1990 and it was a beautiful day...
What? where were we!
Oops didn't I tell you
We were at the bay of islands.
Oh that makes sense
OK back to my story, It was a beautiful day and we were having a lovey time knee boarding then sundley * SPLASH * Benk had fallen off. " YA my turn" I yelled jumping around the boat. We pulled Benk in and turned around then started heading back to shore. I strapped in to the knee board and with a big BANG the bright blue big boat was off " WEEEE" I was going so fast I felt like I was flying. After hours and hours of fun the twins and I went back to our shack at Plink Plop and plonked down on our beds and fell asleep
WOW that was a good story I really liked the part where Benk fell off the knee board.

Class feedback for P.I

There's a lot of work in this, Kate and you clearly love Guides. As a Level 3-4 writer, you could have worked more on your writing - used some voice, avoided repetition. I also think you need to make sure that your choice of decorative features match your topic - otherwise, why include them? Good first PI. I'm looking forward to seeing how your PIs improve throughout the year. TC
