This is what we thought
This morning was the Potato Olympics. It was one of the most epic days ever! Lots of people came it was fast paced. My favourite part was when I played Swing high. When they announced the winner I was so tense. Luckily my potato, Lusinder won bronze. She was happy. I was happy too. It was the most thrilling day yet. I can’t wait until the next Olympics!
I went to some amazing events. They were very entertaining events. My favourite part was when I got a gold medal. I had an extraordinary time. We were very happy. Mr Man competed in the Bob Sled, trampoline and my game. Antonio won a gold medal. Mr Goo won a gold medal.
This morning our fantastic parents came to see the Potato Olympics.
Everyone made an event and a potato.
My potato was Liesel, she wore a purple dress, and it looked beautiful.
I played lots of events.
My favourite part was when me and my potato got wet.
I learned that f you do not win you do not get sad.
This morning my dad came for the Potato Olympics.
We played 5 games.
One was diving, archery, trampoline, and swimming.
My potato won 2 Gold, 1 Silver, and 1 Bronze.
My potato’s name was Eddie.
Eddie thought it was amazing, I did too, so did my dad but I liked it the best when I got wet.
The Potato Olympics was so entertaining because I won Silver and a Gold!
I did swimming, trampoline, and gymnastics.
Roland, my potato was so good, I had fun.
First I pushed my Potato and it was a win for me!
There were three in my group, although I had fun all morning, I won a few times like Jacob.
In ½ PW we are so creative.
My potato likes chocolates and fruit, he also eats Wheat Bix.
He’s good at water polo and running and also swimming and diving.
He wants to cheat but he’s to nice to people goes good in Olympics.
So he never ever cheats!
Okay, he’s so nice so never blame him.
Okay, he also eats veggies.

This morning my creative class had our exciting Potato Olympic morning.
My mum and my forever young sister also came.
My favourite part was when I did my play with Penny and Heidi. We went first and performed our show, and then finished our entertaining funny show at the end.
Then some other students did a song or a play or also a magnificent interesting story.
There were lots of entertaining games and events for our great creative potatoes.
When my non-working event didn’t work, I just didn’t give up on my creative event because I made my own extraordinary event.
My potato’s name was Stephanie.
Today it was very cloudy.
We got to play each others brilliant Potato Olympics games.
Sam and I had a great time playing all the games. Sam enjoyed playing water polo.
It was a fantastic.
This morning our fantastic parents came in to watch our excellent Olympic events and some did not work like mine but it was still fun.
My potato Chloe is brilliant at swimming; Chloe tried some different things like gymnastics.
She was the winner of gymnastics.
My mum came in this morning and I tried it before her and I told her it did not work when I showed her.

First I showed my mum my game.
I was a little bit worried because the day before that I couldn’t stick the sponge on, but it worked and I was amazed.
It was brilliant seeing other people’s games and how the other games worked.
It was entertaining and extraordinary.
I loved how people decorated their games.
My favourite part was watching plays and songs.
