Sentence Combining

 WALT: to combine sentences

Letter to Mr Van Horn

My name is Penny and I am 12 years old. I was born in Cook islands and have eight siblings.
I am the 2 youngest in my family. My brothers and sisters names are…..
Tj,Angel,Robin,Kamire,Joseph,Mataroa,Nathaniel.I enjoy been with my siblings
because they make me laugh and we like to play with each other when we are bored.
I am so grateful to have a twin sister because she is a blessing and her name is angel she is the oldest by 10 minutes.Me and my twin sister got brought up in a church and my other siblings got brought up back in the islands.How would you feel if you had a twin?




My favourite sports are Rugby, Tag and Netball.
Netball was my first sport i played i was nervous at first but then i got use to playing.
My main position was GA because i was very good at playing that position and also i really loved.
Playing GA because you can shoot the ball into the hoop and defend the player your playing against.
But the most thing i hate about netball is that when a girl pushes you over and then your team mate’s
start laughing.If you played netball what position would you play?


My favourite subject is Reading because you get to learn heaps of new things.What i don’t like is maths because it is very boring.My Goal is to make sure i get up early and get to school before 8:30 and when it hits 8:30 i go into the street and sit down and listen to what is going to happen during the day.My other goal is try not to get in trouble a lot  from the teacher and not to get into fights with other people.Then help the little kids to be nice to each other and don’t fight over something that’s not worth fighting over.That’s what i want my goals to be like when its school.


Best wishes to you in the future
(Penny)
