Aussie Rules

Today Room 20 and I were in for a treat with two Aussie rule coaches, Eamon and Micheal. They were teaching us how to play Aussie Rules, or Kiwi kick.

The field was wet so we had to play in the hall. The drill of the day was learning how to do a pass in Aussie Rules, or Kiwi kick. We also shared our time with Miss Lavakula, and her students from room 9. We had to pick some partners and of course I picked Jane. There were heaps of girls so we paired up with pair of room 9 boys.

The next time we go to Aussie Rules training we might get to learn how to kick.

Science Roadshow

Today Room 20 and I went to a Science Roadshow at Tamaki College, in their school hall. When we arrived, some ladies introduced themselves to room twenty and some of the students at Tamaki College.
The gravity machine was pretty cool, and when you put the big ball down a small ball goes up into the air, then falls back into the cone that it came out of.
We went to the Roadshow to learn more about Science because out topic this term is Bigger, Better, Faster, Stronger and we are looking at inventions and the science ideas might help understand inventions more.

Netball With Emma!

For the past few weeks we have been learning netball skills, Emma our netball Instructor has been teaching room 20 and I how to do a dynamic stretch. There are three types of Dynamic Stretches, Butt-flicks, grape vine and high knees.

One netball drill is about passing. You always have your hands in a W formation then pass it long and strong. I have learnt to chest pass and ground pass. Another drill is about shooting, the ball has to be placed into the palm of whichever hand you write with and the other hand should be supporting it. The last drill of all we looked at was defending. When defending you must always be three feet away from the goal shoot, or the person who you are defending.

Finally, we got to play a game at the end. The bib that I was wearing was WA and that is wing attack. I enjoyed the game, although I did feel tired after the game.

Camp TC Reflection.

“NO”!! why Kayaking first? “Isn’t that a great start to the day” THIS IS NOT THE DESTINATION, I WANTED TO REACH!!

Today was the day of the annual year 7 and 8 camp. My group the respectablez
were the first group to go kayaking.

“Sharks there are sharks in the water” I made that up because I didnt want to go in at this time of the morning, Do you want to know what time we went? well i’m gonna tell you anyway! IT WAS 9:30 AM.

But after all it was pretty fun. Having a partner didn’t really help although I had a blast and well that was my camp TC highlight.

Taonga Time!!

On Friday after lunch, Rooms 18-22
gathered in the street for Taonga Time. Finally my teacher came forward and collected my group. My teachers name was miss Va'afusuaga.

As soon as we got to the field, Miss Va'afusuaga told us how to play a game called three bats; these bats were, a ping pong bat, a softball bat and a cricket bat.

Our team didn't really have a name, but Miss Va'afusuaga called us the A-Team, and the other the B-Team.
