Taraias holiday story



On this fun holiday I went to Aitutaki to visit my family. After we met my family we went to sleep. In the morning we all went to a hall to talk and we had some food to eat at the hall. After we had some food we had to go back home. Me and my cousin were having a swim in the beach. After me and my cousin had finished  having a swim we went with my uncle on a boat to go fishing. I caught a tuna and my cousin caught a kingfish.Then we came back to the land and we went to sleep. In the morning we were making a sandcastle and after that my dad said, “Come on we are going back to Auckland in the plane.” It took us a lot of time to get back to Auckland.

Taraia Sly Fox & Little Red Hen

Sly Fox and Little Red Hen
Once there lived a Sly Fox and his mother and a Little Red Hen lived in the trees. The Sly Fox  said, “Mum, when I get back from getting Little Red Hen the pot will be boiling and we will put Little Red Hen in the boiling pot. So he went off. When Sly Fox reached Little Red Hen’s home he sneaked into Little Red Hen house then Little Red Hen screamed and went in and said, “Get out of my house you silly fox! You get out now and you will not get me down from up here!”
“Ahh I will make you get down and I will run around you. When Little Red Hen fell down into the sack Sly Fox went off to his house but then he sat down and had a sleep. Little Red Hen had a plan. She got out of the sack and Little Red Hen put some rocks in the sack and ran back home. Soon Sly Fox woke up and went home.  Sly Fox said, “Mother is the pot boiling?”
“Yes,” said his mother. “Put little Red Hen in the pot.” Then Sly Fox put her in the pot and all the rocks fell into the pot and the hot water went on Sly Fox and his mother and they died.

Taraia making soup

Four week ago we made soup. My favourite vegetable is carrots. I scraped the carrots and then I scraped the parsnips and then I grated It. Then  I put it in the pot of soup and stirred it.  It smelt yummy and nice.
Two weeks ago we sold soup to the school.
We put the soup into four big pots. Some of the soup was
chicken and some was beef. It smelled yummy.
We sold chicken and beef soup and it was only 1$ for one cup and  two cups for 2$. Some kids and teachers came to buy some and then they said that it was good and yummy soup. When the soup was all gone we started to clean up and go to have our lunch.

taraia stroy

Once there were three, little ,cute dragons who lived in a dark cave with their mother and father. Then their mother and their  father said, “It is time for you to go on your own and find a place to live.” Then the little dragons flew off. They said, “We must sleep for the night and make a fire.” In the morning they said, “Bye,” to each other and they went flying off into the sky. The first dragon went and he saw a dark cave. The second dragon saw a cave but it belonged to another dragon. He asked if he could have half of the cave to live in. Then the last dragon went and found himself a cave. After that they went and got some fish to eat. One dark night the last dragon heard a strange noise and he was scared. Then he went to the first dragon. When the last dragon got to the first dragon’s cave he told the first dragon that he had heard a noise and it was so scary that it sounded like a monster. Then they lived together happily every after.

My Three Wishes

My Three Wishes. If I had three wishes my first wish would be to be a good rugby league player. I would train to be the best player in the team. and I can get lot’s of tries and my team would win the world cup. My second wish would be to get a spa pool in my backyard. Every day after school I would go in the spa pool because I could sit in it and just cool down in my cool spa pool. In winter the water would be hot. When I get cold I would go in my beautiful spa pool and soak in it. My Third wish would be to go to the USA because I would like to see the president so I can ask him some questions. I would like to ask him if we could go into his office and see his different flags and see his men who look after him. I would like to go in a helicopter to see the army base and ride in a tank. Next I would see their guns and other weapons. It would be exciting to see the USA army base.
