Yesterday Point England School had a very special visitor come to their school. It was the Hiwi the Kiwi show with two hosts Mr and Mrs Minstrel. They taught us a lot about how to keep the sea and its creatures safe for future generations. We had also learnt a ton of songs and how long fishes are suppose to be when you fish them out of sea.
One thing I learnt was to always wear a life jacket and to fish for the future, I had heaps of fun and I cant wait to see them again.

On the last day of school I have been forced to read about the Winter Learning Journey, we had to choose a sport that was played over 2000 years ago. At first I thought this was going to be boring but then I found out I was wrong.
The sport I chose Pentathlon, it is Greek meaning Pent is five and athlon is competition (Five Competitions). This sport used to included running, long jump, javelin and wrestling but now some of it has changed now it involves shooting, swimming, fencing, equestrianism, and cross country running.

This year's 2016 Olympic Games are being held in Rio De janeiro and we are coming up to our 11th event which is Women's Archery. Representing France, Sophie Argue and from Greece, Arianna Galatas. We also have the last olympics women's archery winner all the way from Korea, Georgia Kyeon.
Last time she was here she had blinded her right eye. This had happened when she released an arrow near her eyeball, causing the arrow to cut her eye. The unfortunate setback gave her opponents an enormous advantage, which made her feel further away from the gold medal.
Luckily after the arrow had cut her eye it had hit the bullseye making her win first place. But this year like all the other contestants she has been training for four years and has qualified to play in the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Scores had been getting higher and higher, 63, 67, 79 and 85. Next up, was Sophie Argue from France who was coming in first with a score of 94 points. Not soon after Korea prepared to go after Arianna Galatas from Greece.
Surprisingly Arianna had scored 87 points, putting her in second place but as the audience's silence filled the stadium they waited for Georgia. As the words “ Georgia Kyeon please take your mark on the platform” flew through the stadium. It was time for her to take her one eyed shot. . .
Just as she was going to shoot she hesitated. She remembered about last years incident and accidentally discharged the bullet like arrow. As it sliced through the air the crowd slowly stood up and the disappointment in Georgia’s face was heartbreaking.
Then a loud thump had echoed all the way into Georgia's ears. She looked up while the crowd had cheered for her, then she scanned for the leader board and saw that she had scored 93 points putting her in second place. Georgia cried with tears of joy knowing that she had tried her best.
At the end Georgia held her medal high and was proud to represent her country even while coming in second place.This story is not true it is a narrative which has been created by my imagination.
