Aussie Rules

Guess what we do on Wednesday?We play Aussie Rules!

To play Aussie rules we will need to use these pieces of equipment. An oval sized ball like a rugby ball that is called a kick, cones and 4 goal posts. I think that these equipment will be easy to use.

First we learned this skill called the drop punt. All you have to do is to keep the crosses up to the sky and laces away from your faces. I think that the drop punt is just like a drop kick in rugby because its similar to rugby. Some people think the drop punt is awkward but I don't.

Then we learnt this skill called hand ball. All you need to do is hold the kiwi kick ball and get your fist beside your hip and then aim it to the other player.

My favourite part about this whole session of Aussie Rules was when we played the real game of Aussie rules. I hope that next term we will get to play Aussie Rules again.

The rugby world cup is bringing lots of people to New Zealand, but there arę more here then just a cup.

Some people In New Zealand arę Kiwis because a kiwi is an animal that lives in New Zealand. In New Zealand there arę indigenous Maori people.

In New Zealand there arę native animals, like Kiwi's, Tuatara, Weta and fantails. Kiwis are animals from New Zealand.

Cross Country

Hi there my name is Anamei and I’m going to tell you all about what the whole school did on Wednesday.

First we had to walk to the reserve and meet Mr Burt. When I heard Mr Burt say, "get set, get ready, GO". I felt nervous because there were speedy and courageous runners.

When I ran I sprinted with the windy breeze. By the time I passed Ms Squires and the bridge I puffed and puffed because I was getting tired. There were massive rocks, rickety tracks and dangerous sharp sticks poking out of the water. I think that this track is dangerous because we might fall into the water.

When I saw Mr Marks videoing me running up the hill I smiled and laughed with joy. Then I ran over the bridge to the big tree and passed Mr Barks. Yes I made it to the finish line and I feel so proud of myself right now because I made it. YEAH!

Guess what? In the last few weeks room fifteen had some one coming in to teach us how to play badminton, her name was Lorene.
First she taught us the basics, like how to serve a shuttle with a racket and how to hit a shuttle. The next few weeks she taught us how to hit a shuttle by a fore hand and back hand. We tried to hit the shuttle in to the bin. I felt amazed that I got two shuttles in.
The next week we had the other teacher teaching us and her name was Donna. She taught us how to play badminton soccer. First you have to get into a team of four and then play against the other team of four. The aim of the game is to try and hit the shuttle over the net and make the other team have to try and hit it. If they miss then the person that tried to hit the shuttle looses points and the other team get 1 point. I guess that the whole point of badminton is all about focusing on the shuttle not focusing on the racket.
We hit the shuttle three times then we hit the shuttle with the racket under my leg and guess what I fell over.
