Protein Song!!

Today, a group of mates and I created a song. The lyrics that we came up with were about protein. We got to pick from 4 questions and the question that my group picked was What is protein and why do we need it? We had to find out facts and present it to our class any way we wanted to. We sang it to a song called 'Beautiful' by Miguel and Mariah Carey.

We didn't have enough time to write enough facts in our lyrics. One of the facts that we put on is, many foods contain protein, but the main foods with lots of protein in it are beef, black beans, fish, poultry, nuts, and seeds. Another fat that we found was that, protein builds up in your body and replaces tissues in your body.

These are the lyrics that we came up with. Hope you enjoy.

You  know.... you need protein,

Many foods contain protein...
but the best sources are... beef and dairy products.
ohhh ohhh.

Protein builds,and replaces the tissues in your body.
With Muscles like that
Oh, you’re killing me.

Oh you’re Healthy...And you know you are, yeahh
You’re healthy.

Prospective Writing

The day finally arrived. I knew I had to prove myself to get into this prestigious martial arts school. . I knew I had to persevere and keep on going because I was almost there. “Phew” I said to myself as I reached the top. My hand swiped across my face. I was really nervous.

My eyes widened as I glared at this huge door in front of me. ‘Knock knock’ waiting patiently for someone to open the door. With a clanking sound of a door bridge, the door opened. “What should I do” I thought to myself. “Hai” I said as I bowed down to my master. His arm went as fast as lightning pointing for me to go away. “What?” I thought I was dream shattered.

I knew I had to prove myself to him. “I know what to do” I said excitedly. I stayed up all night meditating. I was starting to daze but my concentration got me through the night.

20h Famine 2013

“Yes it’s finally time for famine” I said. A famine is when people from around New Zealand volunteer to go 20 or 40 hours without food, and on Friday, my school did our 20 hour famine. I was really excited because we also had a sleepover at our school. We were doing the famine for the children in Bougainville Papua New Guinea. I was in team blue.

I was really anxious about the famine because on the same day, I had to go to a Rugby trial for Bill Mclaren East. I knew that I was going to get really really hungry. Straight after my trial I really wanted an energy drink but I remembered that I wasn’t aloud to or else that would be cheating. I knew that what I was doing for the children in Bougainville was good, so I just drank water.

After my shower I quickly rushed to the car because I was late. When I got to the car I saw my barley sugar and juice and I remembered that, those were the only two things we could have. I quickly grabbed my juice and started to skull it. I was really happy after that. My mum had to buy me another juice.

My favourite activity was the balloon popping game. It’s a game when we get into teams and we tie a string to a balloon and then tie that around our ankles. After that people vs each other to try and put other peoples balloon’s. It was really fun because no one could get me and I couldn’t get anyone as well.

Finally it was time to go sleep. The movie we watched was Wreck it Ralph. I watch that movie a thousand times at home so when I saw that we were watching that we were watching that I just went straight to sleep. I was the first person to go sleep as well because the day after that, I had to go to my rugby game.

The 20 hour famine was really really awesome and I can’t wait to do it next year.

State of Origin 2013!

State of Origin is a competition where two teams go head to head to compete for the State of Origin shield. The teams are New South Wales Blues and Queensland Maroons and they represent parts of Australia. Whoever wins the best out of three games wins.

My favourite team is New South Wales. I use to go for Queensland because they have won the State of Origin 7 years in a row. But then I started going for New South Wales because Queensland always wins. I also like New South wales because they have some of the best players.

One of the best things about State of Origin is the fights and the big hits. The reason why I like all the fights and big hits is because it hypes all the players and all the fans up. It makes everyone want to play harder and that is why State of Origin awesome.

I really want New South Wales to win this year because Queensland have been winning for 7 years in a row and that is boring seeing them win every year. I really believe that New South Wales can do it this year because I have seen the team and it is awesome.

I can’t wait for the 1’st State of Origin game to see who wins.
