Preparing for Athletics Day

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!
