My speech

For my speech this term I am doing it about why snowboarding is better skiing, this is my opinion.


Hi My name is Saxon and I’m going to tell you why I think snowboarding is better than skiing. I like snowboarding because you can do way more tricks and you have less to worry about. With skiing you’ve got two poles and two skis. but with snowboarding you've got one board and that is not much at all.

I think you could hurt yourself more on skis Because there apart. And you could twist your legs and that would really hurt. With snowboards it's easier to do jumps And I think everyone would like doing jumps. I think skiing is more complicated because you've got so much things to do like pizza and I don't even know what that is.So that is why I don't ski.
I think the boots in snowboarding are more comfortable than ski boots because You get to Have leather Boots and it's way more comfortable than plastic ski boots. I like snowboarding better than skiing because you don't have to hold poles when you're going down the mountain and that is annoying.

People say that it's easy to ski but I think it's easier to snowboard. And it's way easier to do jumps on a snowboard then ski's. You can get way more airborne as well. People think that you can go faster on skis than snowboards but I think you can go faster and snowboards. You can even control your speed but you have to be experienced. But it is real easy to turn and use your brakes.

I don't like skiing because When you're going down the mountain the skis can fall off your feet sometimes. It would be annoying having to going back up the mountain to get them. Same thing with ski poles, if you dropped them would have to go back up to get them.

So that is why I think snowboarding is better than skiing, hopefully you change from what you've heard. Thank you for listening to this speech.

Book Awards Day

On Monday we went to book awards day at st Margret's high school. We had to listen to the six authors and they told us about there books. I liked the author called Des Hunt because his book sounds really cool and he made me want to read it. Some of it was about eels and facts about them. He also was playing with balloons which was funny. I learnt that eels never stop growing. Here are some photos to show you what we did.

On Thursday I was lucky enough to go mt Hutt to go snowboarding. It was really fun because I got to miss out on school. I went up the chair lifts which are the high chair lifts I also went up the highest chair lift called the summit six and it was so high up. It took about 15 minutes to get down and I was so tired. The other chair lift i went up to was the quad and I liked that one more because it hurt less on my legs. I did some really sharp turns, so sharp that I nearly fell over. I also did some jumps and wheelies which was fun. I sometimes got really fast and fell over. I went down the intermediate slopes and they were really steep. I was a great day but i'm saw.

School Holidays

On the holidays I went to mt Hutt with my cousins and I went snowboarding, they went skiing. we went up the chairlift and we came down the intermediate runs. After that I went to the movies to watch spider man homecoming, It was a really cool movie. Then Rhys came over to my house for a play date and we went to Flip out and we saw Hunter Collings. After that I went to Tekapo for a holiday with my dad, my brother Levi and I. When we got there my cousins were there such as Jack, Bella and Ruby. In the morning it was raining so we just played board games. The next day it was pouring down with snow and everything was covered in snow we got the toboggans out and we went up a hill to use them. The next day we went to go ice skating but I didn't really like it so we went tubing. The next day it was snowing again so we used the toboggans a bit more then we started driving back home.
