After morning tea my classmates and I had a session with Coach Bart on the field. He was here to help us with our athletics skills to prepare us for the Athletics Day on 18 November.
First he explained to us how to run properly. When we are running we have to look in front of us and not look back. And the next one is we have to run on our toes, heels, high, and low around the grass. It was so much fun!
Then we played a game called Sheepdog. There were two dogs with monkey noodles and the rest were sheep. The two dogs had to round us up then tag us. We ran around inside the cones and when we got tagged, we went outside the cones. I got tagged right away.
Later we practiced the running race. In my team were Annamaria, Zenalia, Kamela and me. I was the second person to run the race. I ran as fast as I could to reach the canopy wall then I rejoined my team by the hedge. I waited for the rest of my team to do their race.
For the last activity, we had to lie on the ground and put a foam pig above our heads. Then we had jump over it. Coach Bart showed us how to jump high and far. I couldn’t seem to do it. I only managed to jump close to where the foam pig originally was.
Finally, it was time to go back to class. I took my jumper off because I felt so hot, thirsty and exhausted. But I’m thankful that I got to learn some skills to prepare myself for the Athletics Day. I can’t wait!
At the beginning of the term, I got a potato from Mrs Agnew’s cupboard to make into a potato person.
I used black strings for the hair, cotton wool for the outfit, marshmallows for the arms, googly eyes, toothpicks, and I had so much fun making my potato man.
We started to think about the story for our class movie and we came up with ‘The Stolen Princess.” Then we made backgrounds and I was in the group that made the rocket ship. After that we took lots of photos and recorded our voices so the potatoes look like they are talking. I can’t wait to see our movie next term.
On Monday me and my classmates are learning basketball skills. It was my first day back at school and I was excited to hear we were doing basketball. After morning tea we went down to the bottom court and I met coach Tray. We did lots of dribbling with the ball and different passes. I liked it when we had to try and get the ball into the hoop. I am looking forward to learning more next week.
Today we were learning about what is legit or Fake?
When we are online it is important not to give personal information to someone you don’t know.
In our story, the moral of the story was don’t judge a person by what they look like. The wolf was the goody and the rabbit was the baddy.
Last term me and my classmates went for swimming lessons. The boys had to go swimming first, and the girls went last. Each day we went to the bus outside and the driver drove us to the pools. Sometimes it was cold when we went but I had my warm swimming robe.
At the pools we had to get into groups. I had Sione, Patrick, Cosma and Ion in my group. On the first day I was very scared and I didn’t want to get into the pool. The teacher was kind to me and then on the third day I went in and enjoyed it. Mrs Yumul told Mrs Agnew how I was brave and I got 5 tallies.
I learned to float on my back with the board and the instructor helped me. I loved learning to swim and I hope I can have some more lessons soon.
We have been making animations on our chrome books in Google Slides.
I really enjoyed this because I like moving the characters.
My favourite part was I enjoyed creating the characters.
Last Thursday coach Chelsea came to Room 6 to tell us about a Maori game called Ki o rahi. We are going to learn how to play it this term. We watched a movie about how Rahi saved Tiara from Patupaiarehe.
After that we went out under the canopy for a game. It was raining so we had to play there. We got into two teams and one was Taniwha and the other one was Kioma. It was fun. I am looking forward to learning how to play Ki o rahi this week. There are two teams and seven people in each team. We play with a small ball called a ki.
Last term Room 6 made tree huts. I brought ice cream containers and egg cartons to school to build my tree hut. I was very excited in the last week of term because we were going to build every single day of the week.
At the beginning I decided to glue two ice cream containers together to make a big square. Mrs Yumul helped me with the glue gun because it gets very hot and dangerous for children.
After that I used four toilet rolls to make my tree hut stand off the ground. Ms. Yumul glued them so they would stick together. I made a window and door to get inside. On the ground I made a special garden out of polystyrene sticks and they looked pretty. I loved painting my hut. It was so much fun.
This is a blog post about my fishbowl. I made it in google draw.
