How to become a successful pt england student?

Do you know how to be an successful pt england student?Well I will give you three reasons of how to be a successful pt england kid.

First example is using your manners.using your manners is a good thing to do because peoples can tell you are one of the good student from Pt england school.Here is another example:Using your manners infront of other visitors and other peoples makes them happy like some words if you are walking in other peoples way you say excuse me and if someone gives you something you use your manners,please comes in thge front and thankyou comes at the end.

Walking away is important because if someone is trying to make some trouble and you are trying to don’t go back then walk away and find someone else to play with you like an good example: If someone is trying to into a fight with you then you have to walk away before you make the fight more bigger and you are the one who is going to get the blame.It is a little bit hard to Ignore someone but sometimes it’s not and sometimes it is. Well I have an example of how to ignore someone if they are trying to do something bad to you and here it is …. Ignoring is sometimes a good thing to do at others,but sometimes it is bad too because if someone is trying to get your attention and you are ignoring it that is so bad.What do we do when we sometimes have a fight?Well I have an idea of how to stop a fight by talking and here it is:First example of stopping a fight is talking about it.And last of all you have to seek out.

Conclusion:Stop think and do.

Our school has a song for stop think and do and I am going to write it for you,
Cause in the morning cause it’s stop think and do and in the evening because it’s stop think and do Yea stop think and do,stop think and do.It is good to stop think and do before you do somethink,And it is also good to use the examples in Paragraph 1,and Paragraph 2.The End

Use my brain,Use my heart I'm going to be cyber smart.

Have you heard of using your brain,use your heart and I’m going to be cybersmart?Well I’m going to explain three ideas of using my brain,use my heart and being cyber smart.

P2:Use my brain!
How to use your brain is by thinking before you do or say something to other peoples online.For an example for using your brain is by giving kindness to others online.

P3:Use my heart!
You need your heart to be brave at doing everything to do your best.You also need your heart for loving and kindness to others, for an example:If you don’t use your heart you will not be kind,brave,loving and doing your best at your subjects.If you say nasty things to other peoples then they will treat you the same way you did to them,one more thing is that the way you want other peoples to treat you is the way your are also going to do back.

P4:I’m going to be cyber smart

Being cyber smart is leaving digital smart footprint online,For an good example:When someone or anyone is sending an chain mail to you you screenshot it then talk to a teacher or someone that is older than you and then ask for help.

Cross country

Here is my paragraph and voocoro about the cross country.
I’m so thankful that cross country is only once a year.“Keep running and don’t stop” I told myself.Mud squelched under my feet as I run through the reserved, I could hear my heart pounding against my chest as  inhaled and I exhaled.With the final burst of energy and effort I sprinted towards the finished line.Yeah! everyone cheered.

Cross country 2014

P1: Have you ever done cross country before? but on Thursday afternoon the whole school did cross country.There were house colours like Takitumu(Yellow),Te Arawa(Red),Tainui(Blue),Mataatua(green).The big race was held on our school field.

P2:When the year 5 girls got up one of the teachers led us to the starting line.The person who slapped the bricks together was Mr Burt,First he started saying to the year five girls“On Your Mark,Get Set GO”!Mr Burt yelled.Then the year 5 girls started to run.When we got there “I felt nervous”. My family were on the other side of the black gates cheering for me “Go Kura”They shouted .When I started to run it felt like I was coming last but I wasn’t I was coming third but then I came 11.

P3:At the end of the race I felt sad when I didn’t make it into the top 10 or top 5. In that run I enjoyed running past the beach because I could smell the fresh air from the bright blue sea.One thing I’m going to work on next year is trying my best at placing in the top 10 or 5.But it didn’t matter coming 1st,2nd,and 3rd.
                      Champions never give up.
