Tamaki Primary school.

On Thursday afternoon we walked down to the hall to get ready for fishing at Panmure Wharf.When we had been walking for a while I started complaining because it was too far to walk.I saw a bus driving past our class.I heard Susana shouting out, "Can you drive us to the Panmure Wharf?". The bus driver ignored us so we carried on walking. When we got to the wharf I was exhausted! Room 8 had to walk to the wharf first.We were second .I felt nervous. I put my bait in my bait catcher. Finally I put my bait catcher into the water.

My bait fell off! I had to wind up my bait catcher and put some more bait into it. Then I saw Lydia had caught a fish. I felt jealous because I hadn't caught one yet. I then went over to the other side of the wharf. I took my time trying to catch a fish. After a while I felt a tug. It felt amazing! I lifted up my baitcatcher, but it was only water! I was very disappointed.

When it was time to go back to school, we took a shortcut across Dunkirk Reserve. There was heaps of mud on the ground. I got mud on my shoes and feet. When we got back to school, I talked about our fishing trip with my friends.I was still jealous of Lydia! I told my Nan when I got home. She started laughing.

Next time I go fishing I want to make a fishing rod because my baitcatcher kept losing my bread into the water and floating away. When I go, I really hope I catch a fish!

Fishing at the whalf

On Thursday afternoon the whole excited Senior Syndicate walked to the hall to get ready for fishing. When we were nearly at the wharf I was exhausted and nervous because I had been fishing once before.When we got there we sat down and I put my fishing line in the water. My hands were sore because I was holding the fishing rod too tight.When my hands were better I sat back down and I started to fish.I waited for a fish to come but no fish came but I was having fun with all of my friends and my sister.Then I noticed my fishing line was at the bottom of the sea, so I pulled it up a little so fish could come and eat the bait that was on my hook.Lydia and Malia caught a fish and their fish were big and small.They felt proud and tremendous that they had caught a fish.I took my time fishing and I kept waiting and waiting and waiting for a fish to come and eat my bait.

I had a great time fishing with my school! Next time I will see if I can go fishing with my Mum and Dad at the wharf. I will go in a car though because the walking was long and hard!

I felt brilliant and proud because some people caught fish and some people didn't. Next time I go fishing I will have a bigger hook. I love fishing and will go with my family.
