Waikaretu School - Striving for Excellence


Class Writing

Here we share the great work our students have done recently. We hope you enjoy them.



On Wednesday my Aunty and Nana came over to our house for my birthday. They brought Sheba and Max with them. The dogs were adorable. I’ve never met Max before.

Max is a Pug and is hyperactive - full of energy and bouncing about. When I walked away from him he would charge at me then run around my feet. Sheba was an old dog, but that didn’t matter. I love dogs of any kind.

While my Mum and Nan were talking Aunty gave me a toy of a character from the movie, Home. It was very squishy. I thanked Aunty and went outside to play with it. As I played with it Max came running past and took my toy with him. I got up and ran after it; we ran round and round till Max finally gave up. I took the toy away from him and put it on my shelf.

Aunty and Nan told me that they were leaving and said their goodbyes. I thanked them for coming and opened and closed the gates for them so they didn’t have to get out of the car and do it themselves.

I miss Max and Sheba.
