Hello, My name is Cael and I am writing about my dearest friend Ngametua.  The reason why I am writing about this familiar thing is because it is our last year together and I will miss her and my other amazing friends.

Ngametua is a year 8 and she comes to Pt England, we are very good friends.  We met last year in Room 22.  We started playing with each other and chatting so, thats how we became friends very fast and hung out with each other.

Ngametua is a good friend.  She enjoys singing, adores spending time with her family.  To be honest she doesn't really like school but she likes spending times with her friends and she loves her school lunches “woop woop”.  

I have other best friends like David, Tyla, Brooke and Andrea.  I am so blessed to have friends like these individuals, they have guided me through the tracks of life good and bad times, so thank you guys very very much.

Best Friends

I have many best friend so, this week I'm writing about my best friends I chose to write about this because they are one of the most important things in my life!

Friends make your life helpful and wonderful. Of course friends argue and have fights, that happens to everyone.  For the last years me and my friends have had a lot of fights and arguments but, in the end we all remain friends no matter what.

Things I like about having friends is you can talk to them, hang out with them and many more but one thing I like them is just singing them and having them as my friend. Things I dislike is that I hate when we fight and I hate when we can't spend enough time together.

I love my friends so very much. My best friends are the selected people here! Ngametua, Brooke, David and last but, not least Tyla. MY BEST FRIENDS!

This week we have to write about one Olympic event that we are not very sure with but, want to learn more about.  So I have chosen to write about Basketball, basketball is not a familiar sports to me and I would like to learn more about it.  I have been researching and exploring the internet to find facts about it!

Basketball is a team sport, they have to shoot a ball through a basket hoop to score points while following a set of instructions and rules. Two teams of five players play on a court with a basketball and a hoop but, the thing is that the teams only have an amount of time to score then the games over and only one team can win.
A basketball hoop is made up of a rim 18 inches and 10 feet high mounted to a backboard. A team can score a field goal by shooting the ball through the basket during regular play.

Mr Barks and Mrs Nau have their very own Pt England Basketball team for boys and girls.  Last week Friday they had trials down at the Tamaki Rec-centre that meant people who did join what to another class .  They had about 1 hour and 30 minutes, they got given a chance to prove and trial that they strived to succeed a belong in the team. Since Mr Barks came to our school basketball has been an enjoyable and achievable sports that all of our old Yr 8's now our new Yr 8 boys love! So thanks heaps Mr Barks for coming to Pt England.

Since last Wednesday Room 18 have been doing Basketball skills and techniques with our basketball coaches.  We first learnt how to dribble the ball from left to right! Then we played a game dribbling the ball in one hand and pick the cone up with the other hand. It was really hard but my team gave it our all.

One thing I like about Basketball is learning new skills and technique with our ball.  I've learnt a lot about basketball for our past two session, I'm totally enjoying it.
