Soccer

Every Monday afternoon after school we have soccer.  Last week the orange team won and the green team lost.  In my opinion, everybody is a winner, and everybody got a trophy, and everybody celebrates.  A thing I like about soccer is when someone scores a goal.  It’s crazy when I score a goal and the crowd goes wild.

The Homer Lowe Regatta

The Homer Lowe Regatta was the first windy Homer Lowe Regatta in years.  The first day was very windy with winds at least 20mph and it got to 25mph.  Boats back and forth were capsizing and sinking.  The second day, the wind was lighter.  So all the optis were able to finish the race.  The Homer Lowe Regatta was very exciting and fun.  Overall Jack came 1st, I came 2nd, and Dawson came 3rd.  Ethan Lowe  came 4th and Sofia came in 5th.  It was an exciting Regatta!        by:Maison

Field Day

Field day is coming  up on Friday. Field day is when different teams from our school take part in obstacle courses and track and field events, such as running, shot put, and soft ball throw.The obstacle courses are games such as “egg and spoon”, sack races, and for the last event we do “over and under”.  At the end, we give out ribbons to everyone.  Last year the overall winners were the Wahoos.

Underwater

“Your food is ready sir”, called out a waiter at the restaurant nearby.  A man rushed inside to quickly picked up his food, which was placed inside a styrofoam container, which was inside a plastic bag.  He walked out onto his old wooden dock nearby, that creaked every time someone stepped on it.  He quickly removed  the plastic bag and threw it into the rough ocean.  It rapidly blew away in the current of the water.  He removed the rope that tied his boat to the dock and he rode away on the rough waves.

That night the wind had picked up, and a huge storm grew.  It was horrible.  Rain slashed down and thunder roared in the sky.  Everything was blowing around.  The next morning the sea was calm and seagulls soared above.  The man’s scuba tanks were leaning against his bedroom wall.  and he thought about going to dive later that day. Hours had passed until he was finally dressed and ready to go out and dive.

The water was cold and deep blue.  He was swimming gracefully down, down into the ocean until everything was dark.  Something white, and almost looked like fog, was attached to his goggles.  He panicked, and soon let go of the tube that carried oxygen to his mouth.  He started swallowing a lot of saltwater.  That was when he had realized it was a plastic bag, and the worst part was that it was the exact same plastic bag he had thrown into the water.  He did not have enough air to breathe and he soon sank down to the bottom of the sea, where he would rest in peace.  His death was the same as many sea animals who are killed by plastic.

Around the world experiences

There are many countries around the world, and many pleasant and horrendous  experiences that go with them.

We start in Canada, way up north, the land of the tundras, swans and polar bears -plus a plethora of extraordinary people.

Canada is probably most famous for pancakes, waffles, and maple syrup, this a land of wonder. Some common sights to see are maple leaves, mounted police, and moose.  You can also see Niagra falls, a famous waterfall located directly on the U.s. / Canada border.  This country is a beautiful place and I truly recommend going there.

Live Forever

 

Based on the sounds from the App “Audio Jack”

As I glanced up at the sky I saw him it was… Snape!  With black evil eyes and fuzzed black hair. He looked at me and said… ”do you”.  I didn’t know what that meant, I threw myself into some bushes hoping he wouldn’t see me.  Suddenly, ”Woof! Woof! Woof!” it was Sirius black, we were facing each other eye to eye and Sirius started to talk and said ”do you!”  I didn’t know what that meant.  First it was Snape, the Sirius… I wondered who else I would see!  As I looked behind me Sirius was gone. I wondered what type of world this was and I knew if I didn’t run away I might as well see Voldermort!  Woosh! There I went I heard a ssssssssound, I just knew it would be my end!  I looked back and saw, Snape, Sirius and….  Voldemort. They repeated again saying ”do you?”  This time they finished their sentence and they gave me a giggle. ”Do you want to build a snowman!”

The Siberian Tiger -a short story

The Siberian Tiger

(written while listening to the sounds on the app “AudioJack”)

The waterfall was pouring bucket of water. The wind howled like a ghost. A tiger crept through the trees looking for food. Rain streamed down from the sky. A wild cow moaned and a bird flapped it’s wings. The wind roared harder and the tiger growled. A bird twerped, and out of the bushes something roared… a moan and a mysterious animal attacked the tiger. They growled and fought.

They fell splashing in the lake and then the tiger tore off the mysterious animal’s head! Then another mysterious animal behind the bushes retreated back into the forest, squealing in terror.

The tiger had his mysterious snack and ran off to his home.

The Tiger – A Fearless Tigers Battle For food.

The Siberian Tiger

(written while listening to the sounds on the app “AudioJack”)

Near a waterfall on a cold winters day a fearless tiger, hunts for its food. Its steps are like thunder, as it walks though the water. Black and white cows gaze in nearby fields. The tiger growls like a motor,   it has found food with one slash the food is dead it begins to take its prey to an unknown place. As it steps though the water the cows realize it has taken one of it’s most prized calf, a fight rises up it begins to rain they fight in the rain like savage bears. A bloody battle of claws and horns. The Tiger has won and feasts on its prey. Thunder crashes, the wind howls then silence.

The Storm – A short story

THE STORM  

(written while listening to the sounds on the app “AudioJack”)

I was walking through the forest. The clouds started getting darker. Wind blew through the trees, it almost knocked me down. I was filled with fear, but I kept on walking. I had to walk though huge muddy puddles. I was drenched. I started hearing animals and I didn’t know what it was at first, but after listening closely I realized it was just frogs.

The wind was still blowing hard. It started blowing down branches every which way. I thought I was going to die!

Lightning struck! Then all of a sudden a tiger jumped out of the bushes.

I still kept calm even though it was growling at me. Then it slowly crept away.

I had to stomp though piles and piles of leaves and even wade though a river. This was the worst experience that has ever happened to me.

It started raining even harder. But I finally got out of the forest and found myself in a grassy plain. I heard a cow then I turned and saw it. It was a baby cow. I saw something else to it was the tiger! The tiger ran for the cow. It killed the cow right in front of me. I ran as fast as I could to get away from it. I ran for about seven more minutes just to be safe.

Thunder boomed louder and louder. Lightning struck brighter and brighter. I didn’t know what to do. Soon enough it was going to be night, but I just kept walking and a few hours later, I saw houses and the storm started clearing up. The last drops of rain stopped as I as I knocked on the door to a house . Right as the people opened the door, I woke up from my dream!

Sunday the 5th of February, the 51st super bowl happened. The Patriots and the Falcons played.  First quarter nothing happened, drive after drive punts after punts.  The score was 0-0 in the first quarter.  The second quarter came, and the Falcons came out scoring it was 7-0.  The Patriots got the ball but they scored no points.  Then the Falcons got the ball and scored again -it was 14-0.  If you were a Patriots fan it wasn’t looking good.  The Patriots got the ball and and did nothing with it again.  The same thing happened again and the Falcons scored 21-0.  Finally the Patriots got the ball and made a field goal.

At the halftime mark the score was 21-3 and the Falcons were winning.  The halftime show was Lady GaGa singing.  She entered from the roof then she started with a slow song then she started to pick up the pace.  The third quarter came and the Falcons got the ball and moved all the way down the field to make a touchdown.  The score was 28-3.  If the Falcons won, this would be the biggest blowout in Super Bowl history.  But the Patriots got the ball and finally scored a touchdown, and the kicker missed the extra point so the score was 28-9.  The fourth quarter came and the Patriots were down by 19 points.   The Falcons got the ball and didn’t do anything, then the Patriots got the it and scored.  Overall, the Patriots scored 19 points in the fourth quater and the Falcons scored 0.  It was a tie game with no time left on the clock.  This was going to be the first Super Bowl overtime in history. The Patriots got the ball in overtime and moved the ball all the way down the field and scored!  The Patriots had won!!  This was the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history.  Tom Brady was now THE Greatest QB in NFL history he was THE G.O.A.T.  This was the greatest Super Bowl in history, in my perspective. The Patriots were champions!  The Super Bowl M.V.P was the G.O.A.T, Tom Brady.
