Merri Creek Primary School – My Passions: Soccer (by JS) and Godzilla (by SM)

Soccer by JS

When my Dad told me about soccer I was 5 years old. I joined Kick-start when I was 7 years old. In my first lesson I scored 5 goals. In my second lesson I scored 4 goals. In my third lesson I scored 6 goals. When I had my fourth soccer lesson I scored 3 goals. It was fun having lessons. I trained on second Saturdays also at school. My passion is soccer. I want to be famous, well known and have a great life as the best soccer player. I want to make Flamengo the best team in the world. That’s why I play soccer, the most famous game in the world. England made the game soccer. In Brazil lots of people play soccer or watch soccer. In Brazil people say football instead of soccer.


                                     GODZILLA   by SM   

When I was three years old, my father showed me something a bit strange. It was called Godzilla and he bought it from a friend. Many people in kinder said that I was Dino Serge but I said, “NO I AM GODZILLA!” I knew a lot more about Godzilla and the other monsters. My first Godzilla I always played with and the articulation was astounding. The head moved, the jaw moved, the legs and ankles moved, and all of the tail was attached to a ball joint.

I asked Dad if he could by another one. Dad said to me, “You’ll have to wait a while”.

The first movie I watched was called Godzilla or Gojira. The movie was made in 1954 and is in Japanese. I really liked the suit and thought it was very daggy. It was fun to watch. Dad bought me another toy when I was six years old. It was called Space Godzilla which is a clone of Godzilla and that film was made in 1994.

When I was eight, I knew all of the Godzilla monsters and movies. For my birthday when I first turned eight I got four Godzilla toys: Hedorah, King Gidorah , Mothra and Gigan. I was very happy when my Dad bought them. Now I am ten years old and mostly know everything a boy could know about Godzilla. I love it because I think it is very creative, it was fun, and the Japanese did very well at creating it. Right now my favourite movie is Godzilla vs Destroyah. I like it because it is different to most Godzilla movies. For once Godzilla actually dies and has orange all around his body.
