swing of change writting

Music echoed around the dusty room held up by wall papered wall.
Harry strolled over to sharpen his razor on his shiny black strop.

Suddenly the music fades out, Harry stomps over to the gramophone in the corner of his shop to see what was wrong. The customer took the gramophone and said I'll fix that for you, then walk out the door.A sweet sound drifts out of a polished golden trumpet. Harry walks out and snatches the trumpet of the dark skinned man."What was he doing in front of my shop" Harry said in his head. He placed the trumpet on the light wooden bench.

Slowly harry walked over to the black and white pitchers at the back of his salon. Then strolled back to the bench and washed the mouth pice then started to blow into the trumpet. When he took his mouth off, the trumpet went dancing round the room like a tree blowing in the wind.

jumping back he placed the trumpet back on the bench and hid behind his up right chair. A second later he tried playing it again but the same thing happend.

why is this happening?
He carred on playing the trumpet like he had fallen in love with it. A few minutes later he dropped the trumpet BANG! he turns over to his big mirror that covered the wall. Staring in silents he starts seeing himself as a black man. Moments later his favourite costumer was standing outside his shop with his gramophone. He takes it inside and turns it on. Then walks over the sharpen his razor and starts to shave his customer. But he has turned black and Harry has seemed to change his mind and dose not mind what colour people are.

women's voting

My women's voting presentation


Kotuku and Kotare have been doing inquiry called injustice their were many subjects to chose from. I chose women's voting. The first thing I had to do was do some research about women's voting because I did not know much about my topic. Then I had to make a google presentation with all of my information in it and share it with the two classes. The impact it had on me was that I thought it was unfair that women did not have the same rights as men did.

A Secret Place

 Sticky runny sap runs down the rough pine tree leaving it's trail behind.Bending down onto the wooden chair surrounded be tree. Looking out at the still water sleeping in front of me. The smell of fresh honey tickles my nose as I explore the soggy damp hut,almost the trees.  Pine trees drop there pine cones on my head leaving me bruised.

Cold lake

When the sun is shinning me and my family go to lake Rotoiti for the day.After lunch we would jump off the jetty into the cold water.

With a frozen head and numb toes I stumble out. Lying on the hot steaming Stones my back starts to burn, so I grab my towel and my And hop on it to relax. After a while we go back to the car to pack up. Then we leave on to the road we  go.
