Our Fia Fia night is in two more weeks. I have been waiting for it to go right passed, I really don't want to do this. But in the end I might feel like doing it again. Practises have begun and I am trying my hardest to learn all the moves and words because I am in the Nuiean group.

Would you call a kiwi beautiful? I know I wouldn't. Its plumage is dark and dull and is stiff like dog hair.
The Kiwis feathers are not like other birds. The most ridiculous thing about its bill it can grow up to 20cm long.
The average size of a kiwi is the size of the chicken, the smallest kiwi is called the little spotted kiwi that is smaller than a rugby ball.
The largest kiwi is twice the size of a football.
Did you know kiwis are flightless birds? They have small stubby wings with a curled claw at the end. Their wings are as wrinkly as a old man's face.
Do you know kiwis are fast? They have really Strong powerful legs that can out run a human. They use their legs to fight predators. Kiwis use their strong legs to dig up burrows which is used to lay their eggs in. Some times they bulid it in a log or under the roots of the tree.
And there you have it how could you possibly reist a; flightless,rediculous ,wrinkeled winged,chicken sized burrow buliding speceies?

When I walked into school I saw the chairs with the ages on the back of it. I thought we were having a team cross country this looks like a whole school one. What a nightmare!
It is so embarrassing I Know Ill come last, but Chanel in front of me didn't seem worried. Maybe I should be like her she isn't worried. When Miss Garden came around with a cosy blanket I didn't want to get up.
As Mr Barks called the 11 year old boys and girls my legs started to wobble I started to panic and my legs started to wobble even more ''don't worry'' Pesi said ''Ill run with you''
Ready set Bang!!!!! I know Pesi said that she will run with run with me but I see is me doing a little spurt and leaving Pesi behind. As I was making my way to Miss Burn I had to stop and look for Pesi I can see her she is coming 3rd out of the girls there is no way I'm gonna catch up to her. Thinking at the last minute I was trying and trying to catch up to her but the mud was so slimy all my energy was drained out just from trying to get out of the mud.
Making my way to the finish line I triped and heard Miss King saying ''come on Brooke You can do it you can do it win for Tainui'' I got up with an angry feeling and finished the race I felt great because I had finished that horrible race.
