Week Activities/ Day 5/ Bonus

Bonus:It’s time to use your imagination to write a short story. I’ve provided you with three different beginnings for a story. Choose your favourite beginning and finish the story. What happens next? You can use your imagination and create any ending that you want. To earn full points, you must post, at least 8-10 sentences, on your blog.

  1. I looked around the room. Nothing seemed unusual, but then…

  1. I knew it was going to be an unusual day when my mom came into my bedroom and said...

  1. The spaceship was out of control and only one person could save us....

I knew it was going to be an unusual day when my mom came into my bedroom and said "Come on your going to be late again for your Rugby tournament." I got up and prepared all of my gear straight away after breakfast. Mum dropped me off then went to park the car. Everyone in my team were so relieved because it had been my first time coming to my tournament early. I got changed into my uniform and was ready to get on, everybody on my team always depends on me.

As the match started I heard my Mom's voice as usual but I always appreciate her support for me. The other team kicked the ball high and I caught it and ran as fast as I could but I was tackled. I gave the ball to James and then James threw the ball to Luke and caught it. It was half time and I was so exhausted that I finished my bottle of water like nothing.

It was so tough that I almost fainted when we were finished the game. My friends and I were so happy that we won and my Mom was so proud of me. She said to me "I'm proud of you for doing your best" and I replied "Thanks Mom for supporting me during all my games, I wouldn't of done it without you." She smiled at me with lots of joy and happiness.

As we got home my dad had arrived just before we got back. I told him about everything and Mom told him how proud she was. My Dad was so happy to hear these stuff. He gave me a big hug and said that he was sorry for not coming to my games because he had a lot of work to do. I said "It's alright Dad, I'm just happy I get to tell you."

When I was going to sleep I saw a shooting star and I wished that one day I'll become a strong, healthy and great Rugby Player in the future. Then after that I went to sleep.


  1. Hello Courtney,

    Wow! What an amazing story that you finished off with. It's so great to see you blogging again:)

    fabulous work and keep blogging!

  2. Kia ora Courtney,

    Wow! This is an excellent story. It is so well written, entertaining and engaging. Well done!

    I really hope that one day this story becomes a reality and you are able to become a famous rugby player. That would be truly amazing, wouldn't it?

    I really love to see the way that you broke your story into paragraphs and included all of the proper punctuation throughout. This is quite difficult and you did it beautifully.

    I hope that you and your family will have a wonderful New Years Eve together this evening. I'm already looking forward to reading your blogs in the new year and to commenting on them!

    Keep up this awesome work, Courtney :)

    Cheers, Rachel

  3. Hi Courtney
    What a great story! Maybe you will become a rugby player in the future. Keep up the awesome work!

  4. Hi Courtney,

    I think that this has to be my favourite story I have read so far on this Summer Learning Journey. I enjoyed it so much! It is beautifully written, and the way you have structured your story with paragraphs is spot on. I had a big smile on my face by the time I got to the end of your story. Well done! :-)

    I remember when I was at school, my parents used to come along to all of my games too and it made me so happy to have them there. I always wanted to try as hard as I could! It sounds like both your Mum and Dad are very proud of you, and so they should be. Hopefully they get to make it along to lots more of your rugby games!

    My favourite All Black has always been Jonah Lomu, and I think my favourite Black Fern would be Portia Woodman. She's a legend! Who's your favourite player?

    I hope you are enjoying your holidays, I'm looking forward to reading the rest of your blogs very soon.

    Naku noa,
