SBC - Week5 -My Family

There are four people in my family me, my mum, my dad and my sister. We all like doing outside things like going for a walk. Me and my dad go running a lot. Sometimes mum comes with us, but my sister doesn't like running, so mostly its just me and my dad. 

We also go sailing on our boat. We mostly go to Adele Island or Kaiteriteri.

My mum and dad come from the UK but me and my sister were born in New Zealand. My mum and dad run a caravan business people can rent caravans from them. Here's a link to their business: Kina Campers.

SBC - Week 3 - Zoom Out -Something in the Bushes

This activity needs your help. 

You are invited to build on to the story by adding a comment. This means you need to zoom out of the image below with your what might be near the red panda? What else might be in the picture if you zoomed out a bit? What might happen next?
Be sure to read others' comments first, and continue the story, by zooming out even further. We could build an amazing story. Give it a go!

So, here is the start of the story...

 Something moved in the bushes I stopped dead. What could it be?

SBC Week 4 - Activity 4 - Hunger


 Some poor people in Africa or Syria don't even have enough food to live on so a lot of them have to beg for food. Some poor people have to sleep on the streets and some people kick them.

Jack's Metaphors

 Jack's Poem 

 I am a Ferrari zooming like a shooting star. 
 I am a black panther lurking in the shadows waiting to pounce on    unexpected prey. 
 I am a soggy wet cheeseburger waiting to be eaten.
 I am an old forgotten jacket that someone left behind.   
   I am a skyscraper towering above the city and swaying in the wind.
I am a rushing river smashing into the rocks like a tank

Jumping Off

It was my turn to go. The water looked like it was going to erupt over my head. I didn't want to jump. It looked so far down. It looked like a giant pit of darkness that went on for ever and ever.

 The crowd is cheering for me. 

I moved forward 3 steps. The diving board made a twanging noise. I moved back 3 steps. Suddenly I had the feeling I should jump. But what if I failed? And then I thought... Why don't I just jump and get it over and done with?

 So I took a run up...and then charged forward and ran off the edge of the diving board. I went flying through the air. I was plummeting down at what felt like 1,000 mph.  I saw a fast blur zooming past me. I thought it was a bird and then I hit it...
