WALT: To write a limerick with the correct rhyming and rhythm pattern.

There once was a man from China
Who wasn't a very good climber.
He was very calm
Till he broke his arm
Luckily his arm will be fina.

Athletics Poem

WALT: Use Poetic Verse To Recount A Memory
My Athletic Poem

The athletic sports were usual enough; they had sprints, discus, shot put, long jump and even the tiring long distance which I came 3rd in.
My friends, opponents and I did what boys do-skulled water, sweated a lot, fired the discus, jumped the high jump, threw ourselves in long jump, shot the shot put and ran. 
Having A LOT  of fun.

Its all up to me

It’s All Up To Me

“Ouch,” I snarled at Ryan as he purposely stood on my foot with metal sprigs. We were just about to fight our hardest game yet against the Rangers Vipers. Finally we got told our positions. I was in the best position ever, GOALIE!

After what seemed like 2 hours it was finally time to start the game. Suddenly the Vipers were off and already had a clear shot at goal. I suddenly dived dramatically and stop the ball from going in and booted it away.

Goal after goal after goal. Finally it was the last couple of minutes. The score was 5 all and the Vipers had the ball.
I shouted out “NO”, but it was too late. Kris had slide tackled someone and it was an automatic penalty right outside the goal box. I was sure this was their best kicker.
It was all up to me. He took a few steps back, wound his leg up and suddenly the ball went flying through the air like an eagle soaring through the wind. I tried to stop the ball and I certainly slowed the ball down but was it good enough?? The ball was on the line.
“NO GOAL,” the ref shouted extremely loudly.
It was then I thought to myself, ‘I am such a great goalie!’
