Task description: This week during Maths, we had a task to do with Tongan language week. We had to look at this Tongan Travel and answer questions. We then had to make our own graph about four of our friends. I choose Tumanako, Mary, Vika, and Lynette. My high light was finishing it really fast even though I was not able to understand my work because the task was confusing as it didn’t give us the information we need to answer the questions . Low light not being able to do DLO or Maths Whizz because we had lunch early because of cross country. For this week I don’t have anything I think I need to work on as I am very proud of myself. I worked on this task with my friend Swaimah, you can check out her blog to see her post. After I completed the task, I posted it on my blog. I enjoyed this task very much, and I hope to do more like this soon. Hope you enjoyed. Please leave a comment; thank you for visiting my blog.
Her jaw dropped as the phone line dialled out in a fade… The phone thumped on the ground sending shivers down my spine. She rushed to get in my car. The hospital was hours away from my house as she said to herself “I have to see her, please be okay, what will we do if she doesn’t make it!?!?. Poor Tara. I have to be with her!”
As she drove frantically thoughts ran through her head. “Turn green you f**king light” she yelled so loud that the car next to her could hear her. He gave her a ugly look, but she didn’t care, she wanted to see her sister.
Some time later…
She pulled into the carpark nearly hitting every curb she turned, but that was the least of her worries. She ran out of her car not even remembering if she locked it or not. She asked the lady at the counter desperately “what room is Aria Smith in?” The woman replied with “ room 69 level 3.“ She pressed the elevator button and waited but it wouldn’t open so she ran up the stairs.
When she reached the room, Tara was on the floor crying as her mum laid still on the bed. I rushed to her side, I couldn’t bare to see her like this. “Come my darling, we’re gonna be okay, she’s gonna be okay, don’t worry my baby” she said in Tara’s ear as she calmed her down.
They sat there crying for hours, her body hasn’t moved an inch. She was gone. “I didn’t even get to say goodbye, she left me alone in the world! What am I gonna do without her!?!? I miss her already… Why did she have to go, I need her” cried Kimmy as she sat on the floor in disbelief…
Task description: This week during Writing, I did a Vocabulary Swap. What we had to do was fill a table with 10 adjectives and/or verbs, then your friend (Swaimah was mine) will give you their 10 verbs and/or adjectives. We then had to make a story with those words and bold them. It was really fun to do because our stories came out good.
My words were: Be, gave, have, dropped, ran, come, said, see, make, get
My highlight was making a story out of random words. My low light was that my friend hated the words she had but in the end she worked it out. Something for us to work on is trying to give harder words to each other. After that we completed the task, we posted it on our blog. I enjoyed this task very much, and I hope to do more like this soon. Hope you enjoyed. Please leave a comment; thank you for visiting my blog.
Task description: This week during Reading, we were making posters on a country of our choice. I chose to do FInland. I was gonna do it alone but then my friend Swaimah wanted to do it with me so we became partners. We reached Finland for 2 weeks and gathered information about the place and its history. We had a lot of fun doing that but it made us so happy seeing all our hard work come to life and it all being worth it.
Our highlight was making what I had in my mind coming to life. Our Low light is cutting the papers and worrying if the papers won’t fit. Usually we have something to work on but I think this week we did a good job. After that we completed the task, we posted it on our blog. I enjoyed this task very much, and I hope to do more like this soon. Hope you enjoyed. Please leave a comment; thank you for visiting my blog.

Task description: This week during Writing, we are reflecting on how we did on our speech which we read last week to our class. I was freaking out so much the whole week coming to the day we read our speeches but at the end I felt I did pertty good. It was so good to see that I memorised my speech and I was really happy about that. I made some compelling arguments. I know I was nervous but I delivered it with confidence. I think because of the nerves I spoke quite quickly but I’m sure this would change if I were to do it again.
My high light was being able to understand my work and being able to say it in front of everyone. Low light not being able to concentration because I was nerves.

Just listen… FOR ONCE!?!
As the rain grew heavier, Aria huddled under the oak tree, trying to find some solace in the storm. She had run away from home, overwhelmed by the pressures of her life, and now she was alone in the forest, with nothing but her own thoughts and the sound of the raindrops pounding against the leaves above her head. Aria had always felt like she didn’t belong, like she was different from everyone else. Her parents didn’t understand her, and she felt like she had no one to turn to. She had reached her breaking point, and she couldn’t take it anymore.
Aria was a 13 year old girl who lived with her parents in a small town. She had always felt like an outsider and struggled with anxiety and depression. Her parents didn’t understand her problems and often dismissed them, which made her feel even more alone and hopeless. This happened for many months but she decided she couldn’t take it anymore and ran away from home with the intention of ending her life. Yet that wasn’t the case…
She found herself sitting in a forest, tears streaming down her face as she thought about how much pain she was in. She felt like no one cared about her and that her life was meaningless. ALl these thoughts were crowded in her head with nowhere to go.
She thought about what she said to her parents- “You don’t understand, and it’s not because you don’t know or cause I don’t tell you it’s because you won’t listen to me and let me speak how I feel, you want me to share my problems and my emotions with you yet when I try to talk, your not ready to listen, so how about you get better at that before asking me ‘what’s wrong’.”
Maybe it’s my fault, was I too harsh? She wondered, but all she wanted was for them to listen to her for once, I want to be seen and heard. As she sat there, shivering in the downpour, she heard a rustling in the bushes nearby. She tensed up, unsure of what to expect. But then, out of the shadows stepped a woman, with long dark hair and piercing eyes that seemed to see right through her.
It was a creature she had never seen before – a vampire. The woman introduced herself as Turia, a vampire who had been living in the forest for centuries. Aria was frightened at first, but Turia soon proved to be kind and understanding, listening to Aria’s problems and helping her to see that there was hope for the future. Turia had seen many humans come and go, and she could sense that Aria was in pain.
She approached Aria cautiously, sensing her distress. Turia’s gentle demeanour put her at ease. The two began to talk, and Aria soon found herself opening up to Turia about her problems. Turia listened patiently as Aria spoke, knowing all too well the pain of feeling alone and misunderstood. She shared stories of her own struggles and offered Aria comfort and support.
It wasn’t until Turia revealed her true nature to Aria that she understood what was happening – she was becoming a vampire. At first, Aria was frightened by the idea of becoming a monster like Turia, but she soon realised that being a vampire wasn’t all bad. She had powers that she had never even dreamed of, and she was able to see the world in a whole new way.
Eventually, Turia made the decision to turn Aria into a vampire as well. Aria was hesitant at first, but she knew that she trusted Turia and wanted to stay by her side forever. The transformation was painful, but Aria emerged stronger than ever before. She loved herself more than she had ever felt she had before.
Over time, Aria found herself feeling more and more at home with Turia. She began to see that there was a future worth living for, even if it wasn’t the one she had imagined. As the days went by, Aria and Turia formed a deep bond. Turia taught Aria about the world of vampires and showed her how to use her newfound strength and abilities. Aria felt powerful and free for the first time in her life.
As the years went by, Aria and Turia became inseparable, living together in the forest and protecting each other from the dangers that lurked in the darkness. Aria had found a new family, and for the first time in her life, she felt truly at home. And for once she felt needed and welcomed, she was happy which was a shock to her as she felt like an outsider most of her life.
Years passed, and Aria and Turia remained together. They travelled the world and experienced many adventures, always looking out for each other and being there through thick and thin. Aria came to see that there was so much life left to live and that she was capable of so much more than she ever thought possible.
In the end, Aria realised that running away from home had been the best decision she had ever made. It had led her to Turia, and to a life that she had never even imagined was possible. She was grateful for every moment she had spent with Turia, and she knew that she would always be a part of the forest, and a part of the world that she had come to love. But Aria realised that running away from her problems wasn’t always the answer. She found the strength to face her struggles head-on, and with the help of Turia, she learned that there was always hope and that she was never truly alone.
