The National Football League NFL for shout, is a professional American football league that is a part of the four major professional sports leagues in North America. In the game there are 32 teams divided equally between the National Football Conference NFC for shout. The NFL runs a 17-week regular season from the week after Labor Day which mean it is on September to the week after Christmas, with each team playing sixteen games and having one break for a week each season. 

In NFL my favorite is the New England Patriot with the best quarterbacks Tom Brady, who holds the record for 5 touchdowns in 1st quarter. My other favourite player is Minnesota Vikings running back adrian peterson, who holds the Minnesota Vikings most touchdowns in a game. In the game if the referee throws a yellow card down means some was of side.

Catching The Bus

I have created a movie about Samoa with my reading group. The focus of our movie was to find the Differences and Similarities between Samoa and New Zealand. Samoa is a little bit different to New Zealand because if you are in New Zealand you can wait in a bus stop but if you are in samoa you just wait outside your house. 

Some other things that are different to New Zealand are, if you go to the bus you pay after you hop off the bus, and if the seats are full you can sit next to the driver. But you have to hold on tight because there isn't a door and you might fall out! Or else you can sit on someones lap you don't know! Weird eh?!

1.Samoan busses are colourful and awesome
2.Samoans have to pay after they get off the bus
3.Their buses have a car like shape and New Zealand ones are like a big rectangle.

1.You have to wave your hand out to get the bus driver’s attention
2.You have to wait to catch the bus in Samoa and New Zealand
3.You have to pay on both of the busses

Lebron use to play for the Miami Heats but now he is going back to the team he was drafted in with Kevin love who use to play for the Minnesota Timberwolves.

World War 1 Commemoration

Source: Express
Today marks a special day because it has been 100 years since world war 1 began. In the army many kiwi's volunteered to serve in the war. 500 woman went to the war as nurses to help the people who were wounded. An important part of the war where New Zealand fought was held in Gallipoli in 1914. 100,000 kiwi's went to world war 1 and only 18,500 came back to New Zealand and some of them were wounded.

The army started by first going to Samoa to free them from the Germans. Then they went to Egypt where they were trained for the battle at Gallipoli. New Zealand had to stop the big guns from hitting other countries. On the 4th of August 1914 Britain declared war. Over 2,500 Maori and Pacifica Men served in the New Zealand Army. 10 of the women who went to war died when their ship sunk from a German U-boat (Submarine). For five years New Zealand fought from Gallipoli all the way to western France.
