Learn: To organise my writing into paragraphs in which the ideas are clearly related and linking into paragraphs.

“Did you see that sir?! I’m a legend!” I shouted. I challenged myself by telling all the girls lined up that I will close my eyes, and catch the ball with one hand! I know right, I’ll never get that. I knew I would never get it, I couldn’t stand a chance. My heart was beating, it was beating so loud you could hear it! I didn’t want to humiliate myself. Oh well, I’ll be known as the cocky girl who can’t do anything right.
I closed my eyes with fear, my heart was pounding and pounding knowing how fast that damn machine chucks out its balls. The ball was firing out of the launcher, I opened my hand and the ball came and landed right into my palm. “WOAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!” all the girls shouted .

I opened one of my eyes, and what do you know? The ball was right in my hands! I was bragging through the whole session! I told our instructor I am the first ever person on this earth that has caught a ball with my eyes closed! Too bad, he told me I wasn't actually the first person, still though I was the happiest person alive!! So thank you, Coach Campbell.


  1. Hi Samantha, It is Abby here from Te Waka Ako at Waikowhai Primary School. I like your tennis writing. It made me think about how we have just finished our skateboarding sessions. Next time you could maybe add some photos. If you would like to see my learning blog it is
    Blog you later.

    1. Thank you Abby for commenting, I'll be sure to check out your blog! I'll also be sure to put up some photos.
