Below are some of pieces of writing and the display that has been put up on our class whare. We think it looks awesome.
I chose Richie McCaw because he was a famous rugby player and he talks to a lot of people about how he was a famous All Black and a Crusader. He was a famous All Black and was the All Blacks captain. Richie McCaw played more than 100 matches. His achievement was winning 2 world cups and there were in 2011 and 2015. Richie McCaw showed courage from carrying on playing with a lot of injuries. He showed perseverance because he never gave up when he was on the field. He also kept going when they were losing. Since retiring from rugby, Richie enjoys flying helicopters.

I chose Fred Dagg because he is funny and he is a Comedian. He is famous because of his Gumboot song and his TV advertisements. The Gumboot son is so cool and I have listened to it a lot and the song is stuck in my heard. Fred Dagg showed courage because he likes to sing songs and the Gumboot song become so famous. He showed courage because he got up on stage and performed. Fred Dagg showed perseverance for keeping on trying. Fred Dag and his gumboots are a New Zealand icon.

I chose Allan Deere for my famous person. He flies spitfires and I like spitfire planes, Alan was famous because he kept flying and never gave up. He encouraged the NZ’s to keep fight hard and to never lose the war. He completed too many missions and he was an ace. He was just completing a turn and a target at 12 o’clock then and he crashed. Amazingly Alan and a German pilot survived but the German got put in prison 2 weeks later. Alan showed courage because he carried on when he was wounded and completed many missions to get the Distinguished Flying Cross. He showed perseverance by not giving up. Alan didn’t want to teach the Aussies how to fly but he just did it. Alan showed determination by helping people to live there life and himself. Once Alan failed a mission. He would do it again and again until he succeed. I want to fly a spitfire like Alan when I am 20.
