A great time at Aussie Rules!

Do you guys know what sport Room 16 and Room 17 are playing this term? Aussie Rules\ Kiwi kick. I have played this game last year, I don’t usually like sport but I think that Aussie Rules is an awesome game! If you want to know about a great term of Aussie Rules this is the story for you!!!

“Yes” I said. Were playing one of my favorite games Aussie Rule or Kiwi Kick! I think that it is a great game, I'm not really into sport though. Walking to the court I was wondering if it was the same instructor? Sadly it wasn't but our new instructor seemed nice too. Their names are Sandwich and Anita.

We quickly got into action. We had two short warm up’s and one of them was Flush The Toilet. It’s a really funny game. We had lots of fun and that was only the warm up. Imagine the actual game!

“Ohhh” I said, is it really the last game? I want stay and play more but no. Our fun day slowly came to an end but not just yet we still have our last game. For the last game we played one of our favorite game with a twist, can you guess what it is? Octopus “YAY!”, with a twist “huh?” I thought. Instead of just chasing you they have to do a hand pass. But it was still the same fun cool game that I love.

Well thats it for now. I hope that you enjoyed my story. And please visit my blog again soon!!!!

This term our fantastic school is learning about art and not just any art but Art Alive. Art is one of my favorite things in the world. I was so happy when I heard that we were learning about art! I’d be happy to tell you about some of the things we are learning about so listen carefully.

“Finally,” I shouted. It’s school time again, I said Hi to all my friends then hung up my bag. I was wondering what the topic was for this term? I was talking to my friends when something caught my eye. It was the topic board, I found myself gazing up on the beautiful art on the wall and the words “ART ALIVE”! Wow I thought to myself this is going to be a great term.

Walking to assembly I wonder what kind of hilarious costumes and performances we will see. As I sat down I saw the small Mr. J dressed as a paint set. I thought that was the best costume at assembly but then I saw Miss. Garden dressed as a painting! I saw a lot more funny costumes I just didn’t know which one to pick.

A lot of laughs went on as the performances started. They were all funny but I think that team 3’s performance won me over. Their performance was about Mrs Barks going to Paris to visit the biggest art museum in the world! It’s was so awesome! I just know this term is going to be the best!!!

Swimming - it's going to be great!

New Zealand is surrounded by water, so people that live in New Zealand should know or learn how to swim. We are so lucky because our school has swimming lessons and everyone loves it. If you want to find out about the fantastic two weeks of swimming lessons than this is the perfect story for you!!

“YAY” our class said, it’s finally time for our swimming lessons at the Glen Innes aquatic centre. Everyone is so excited, I mean who doesn't love swimming? Anxiously walking to the pools, I thought of all the new things I'm going to learn. As I walked through the doors of the pool, I got greeted by the strong smell of chlorine.
Trying to get changed as quick as I can, my friend told me to hurry up! We had time for a little bit of a gossip in the changing room but then we really had to hurry up! Finally I’m done. Once I got out Mr. S gave me 10 green cards! Almost time to get into the pool. Exited!

Jumping in the warm pool I I took a test to see how good I was in swimming. There was a team one (learning), two (good) and three (great). It turns out I’m really good at swimming! For the first day I swam in the really deep pool, my confidence slowly swam out of my reach. The water was a lot colder but I can handle it. Our instructor gave us a board and told us to swim one length of the pool kicking. At first I thought it was going to be easy but as I got to the middle my leg muscles got tired... then more tired, untill I had to just STOP! My instructor told me to keep going as I’m almost at the end, and I had no choice but to listen to her. “Ok,” the teacher told me, “You will be in group two from now on.” There is no doubt that for the next two weeks it will be great. I love Swimming!!!
