Explanation Writing, Why is a striker important

This week for writing we had to write a peice of explanation writing. So I did it on a striker for soccer. So here it is

Why is a striker important

WALT: Write an original piece of explanation writing

The striker for a soccer team is an important player.

It's their job to score the goals for their team, but they can also set goals up too. The striker needs to be fit, and also really fast so they can chase after the ball.

The striker tries to score as many goals as possible to make their team win. They mostly stay around halfway, to get the ball from their team-mate. Sometimes if the other team is about to have a corner, the striker comes down to help prevent them from scoring.

The strikers job is very important, because he gets the goals for their team. (But remember, not just the striker can score!)

Science at home: Making crystals

On Wednesday night, me and Mum tried a experiment, with the left over things that Mum used to do it with Room 8.  We put it in and left it for 2 nights. We also added yellow food colouring to make it yellow. Here are the steps to make this experiment. (If you do the experiment, leave a comment on how it went!!)


You will need:
Epsom salt
Food colouring (optional)

1.Put 1 cup of Epsom salt in your bowl
2.Heat 1 cup of water in the microwave for 45 seconds
3.Mix it together! For 2 minutes (Add food colouring if you want!)
4.Put it in the freezer for 10 minutes
5.After, put it into the fridge overnight!
6.When you get it out carefully get rid of the excess water
It works better the longer you leave it in the fridge!!!!!

Recount. FIFA U-20 World Cup

We got so far

WALT: Write a recount

"Oh no!" I yelled as the Portugal team rob the ball from from New Zealand! I stared and gasped, as New Zealand were chasing for their treasure.

"What kind of tournament is it when the host country is out?!" I thought when New Zealand were still chasing like a pack of wolves hunting deer.

He shoots... SCORES! Portugal just scored! Oh no, no no no, we can't have let them win that goal. New Zealand tried their best in stopping the ball, but sadly it was no use.

Portugal's fans were so elevated, this could be the goal that makes Portugal win the match. But don't be scared New Zealand fans... We will fight back!

FIFA U-20 World Cup New Zealand vs Portugal

Myles Webb's Slidely by Slidely Slideshow

On Thursday the 11th I went to the New Zealand vs Portugal game in Hamilton. It was at Wakatio stadium. Me, Dad and Bryleigh went. I got a New Zealand shirt and and New Zealand silver fern poster thing and a flag that says GOAL!! We watched the game for the fist half and that was when Portugal got a goal. Then when it was the second half we left because it is a long drive but only minutes later New Zealand got a goal. Then on our way home Portugal got a goal at almost full time. New Zealand played really well to just lose by 1 point.

To present this great game I used a brand new slideshow maker.

Narrative writing

Burnt without a trace

"Dr. Mackenna! Get me the serum so I can make the medicine to get people to remember things! People always forget things these days!” Yelled Dr. Jordan. “Y-y-e-e-s-s, sir.” Replied Dr. Mackenna as she dug through the cupboard to find the medicine.

After they were ready. “Here we go!” said Dr. Jordan excitedly. They poured it in and then mixed it, then the bottle started flickering like a lantern.

“Sir…” said Dr. Mackenna. The bottle was shaking, then there was a spark of fire. “What’s happening?” Yelled Dr. Jordan. “I don’t know!” Replied Dr. Mackenna. Suddenly it detonated!

The next morning the police had discovered what had happened. Witnesses were  called in to tell their side of the story. They mainly got “ I didn’t see anything” but then they called in a boy. “ What did you see?” Asked the police. “ Well, I didn’t see much but…”

Hours later the police told the boy to hurry up and cut to the chase. “ Well, I saw something I wish I hadn’t seen…”
