Persuasive Fortnite writing
Fortnite is a big game.
People are playing from all over the world. Is fortnite a waste of
Firstly fortnite is a team work game about cooperating and
building. When you get shot you don't, a drone picks you up so you can
start a new round.
Secondly there are emotes like the floss, running man and
the conga. There are skins like, rana rock, drift and hybrid. This is very
fun and amazing game.
Thirdly you can go it alone or with someone else or 3
more people. Its good for strategy and mining. So fortnite just gets left
as a corporative building storage fun game.

Into the Mist
She walked into the shallows and looked back at something
she had left behind. I ran down the hill to see what it was. A tiny baby
was lying there crying. I picked it up and gave it to an eagle who just
flew by. OK so back to the girl. I tried to look for her but I knew she
had submerged under the foggy water.
By Lucy. Carter
It was the morning of Weetbix triathlon and Mum woke me up
at six o'clock. I was sooo tired. I could fall asleep for the whole day.
But I could tell we had to go. I had mixed emotions scared, nervous and
excited. As we drove there I was drinking a delicious hot chocolate it was
warm, yummy and fluffy. After we picked up Emma and Aunty Kim we started
heading to the race.

Welcome to the amazing world of fart man and fat man !
On the 30th of October (halloween) 12.00pm in 2011 on
Commerce Street Whakatane we were robbing a dairy when suddenly we saw
with our own eyes.... stick girl and bungy girl ! KAPOW SMASH BOOM watch
out there's a cow fart man shouted cow? look out heres comes a fart bomb.
Looks like I'm fighting stick girl and fart man is fighting bungy girl,
and i give her a punch and she falls to the ground and the fart man gets
out a fart bomb and throws it at her and that was the end of that.
By Tylah Bateson
Suddenly there was a huge noise, screams and shouting. I
immediately ran for higher ground i said to my self this is completely
insane. I saw Tylah hop on her mobility scooter I thought it would be too
slow on foot so i asked her "can i please have a ride!" Tylah hollered
back "i can't hear you over the noise." i shouted as loud as i could "can
i have a ride."
Finally, we were at the top i was crying because it was so
tragic! It was worse than dropping your ice cream on the floor!!
