Frozen New Zealand

In Dunedin the snow fell on the sheep's heavy coat. The snow came with the blistering wind which hit from the south pole. The lambs were very cold because they don't have a thick coat of wool like there moms.

The first rugby ball

In the 1800’s the first rugby ball was made from raw pig’s bladder.The raw pig’s bladder was extremely smelly and unhealthy.
Some people had to breath through the raw pig’s bladder to blow the ball up. Not many people did that because breathing into a raw pig’s bladder was not a popular task. Instead of breathing into pig’s bladder they used a stem clay pipe.
Later on people made rugby balls out of rubber.

My Holidays

In my holidays I went to my cousins house and played passes with the rugby ball.
We played kicks with the rugby ball across the road too!
We went to the movies and watched Harry Potter during the holidays too. I would like to tell you what happened, but I would give it away.
I had a wonderful holiday.
