If I was an Olympic athlete

Walt: use a plan when writing.

This year it is the sporty and tough Rio 2016 Olympics. I am competing in the high hurdles for NZ. Hurdles is where you sprint on the track then you approach a fence like hurdles that you jump over. I have been training hard and long for 4 yrs and now at the Olympics it will be time for me to pay off all my good training and exercise.

At the Olympics I will be competing in Hurdles. I am competing in hurdles because I like to jump and run. This Olympics I will be fast and strong. I love jumping over hurdles especially I love to jump. I am going to try my best at hurdles because I trained a lot and now it’s going to pay off at the Olympics.

This year in the Olympics I will be representing New Zealand in hurdles. I am representing NZ because that is where I am from and I was born as a nice and strong kiwi. I will win for NZ and I will be a champion. NZ I will win a gold medal for you.

At the Olympic games I think the ceremony will be great and cultural. I will be nervous in hurdles but this event is dedicated to my family and NZ. Once I win and I walk with the NZ flag I will take pride in my competition. I will be happy if I was the winner and I will be grateful of what I have been given.

My thoughts towards Olympics is try your best and train hard. Another thought is remember to just be brave and try your best. But the thing you need to do is be grateful of what you’re actually doing and just be happy. Most of all be proud of yourself and just do your best you don’t always need to win.

Task Description: First I had a plan on how the structure of my story was. Then I had to write a 5 paragraph story about myself being in the Rio 2016 Olympics. Next I had to post it on my blog with a WALT, picture of the Olympic rings,labels,great title and a task description.

Teuila and the great white shark

Teuila’s heart was pounding as she was being chased by a great white shark. She was exhausted from swimming so hard, but she knew that as a warrior she could do anything to escape situations like this. Teuila had a lifetime ahead of her and she didn’t want to die.

But the problem was that she was swimming far away from her tribal village. She knew she had to escape from the shark but she also knew that she had to get back quickly to her village. She thought that someone could see her but no one had noticed that she was gone.

Suddenly the shark gave up and she swam away.  Teuila spotted an island in the distance. Limping out of the water she noticed that she had a very bad cut on her leg. She found two sticks and used them as walking sticks.

After what seemed like a long time, Teuila found a little hut in a small village. She barged in and looked for someone to help her. An old lady said “Hello are you ok?” “No I have hurt my leg badly and I need to fix it” said Teuila. “Oh sure I can help you” said the old lady as she helped Teuila. After a long time it was starting to get dark. The old lady said “Oh no there is a storm about to hit”. “What? No! There can’t be! I have to get home!” Teuila said.

“Go to sleep and we will get you home tomorrow” said the old lady. The next morning Teuila woke up to a village that looked like it had been destroyed. “Oh my goodness that storm must of been big” said Teuila. The old lady said “Yes, yes it was”. Suddenly the old lady said that her grandson had a boat, and that he could take her home. “Why thank you. Now I can see my family again” said Teuila gratefully.

“TEUILA where were you?” said Teuila’s mum. “Sorry mum it’s a long story”. “I’m so happy that I’m back” Teuila said. She explained how she had been chased by a shark, getting lost and then surviving a storm. Her family were so relieved to hear that she was ok. That night, Teuila’s family made a huge feast to welcome her back. Then they lived happily ever after.

Task Description:This is my narrative story about my Maori or pacific warrior Teuila. I also have a image of her in the village. She is with the old lady that helped her.
