Badminton

Last Thursday room14 went to badminton.
At badminton we were playing with Donna. First we started some new skills then we went to pick a space and fold our legs.We started playing and it was very hard, we tried to hit the shuttle and so I said, "I will make it." and I did. I leaned on my back and hit it.

Next Donna showed us how to hit it under our legs and that was cool.  Junior and I kept on dropping the shuttle on the ground.

We played a game with these nets. Evan and David were good at serving and hitting with the racket and  Jayden and I were challenging them. We tried to hit the shuttle up without dropping the shuttle on the ground. I hit the shuttle on the racket 25 times and I had never done that before. So Shayne and I were hitting and twisting our wrist around heaps.
At the end we put our rackets away and the shuttles too. Then we went back to class to have lunch.

Rugby history

A long time ago in the late 1800s the shoe makers killed the pigs to get the bladders from the pigs. They used it to make a rugby ball. Do you know what a pigs bladder is? If you don’t know it is the part of a pig that holds the pig’s pee.After taking the bladder out they would clean it before blowing it up. They blew it up with a part of a pipe.


They used to use these balls to play a game called Bigside. Bigside was a combination of rugby and soccer. You could only get the ball if it was airborne. Also when you grabbed the ball you could not run with it you could only kick it everywhere or kick it under the the cross bar.

William Webb Ellis change the game of Bigside to Rugby. William Webb Ellis started it because he sprinted to the goal line to get a try.

Texas @ Pt England School: Immersion Assembly

As soon as I walked in the hall for our Immersion Assembly I saw Mr J wearing bushy hair that was green, and an orange and white green flag on his back. Suddenly he yelled out "Ireland!!" It was so loud that some of the little kids were scared. Then he said it again and that was even louder.The teachers were all dressed like New Zealand and Australia and many more. We found out that this term we are learning about the Rugby World Cup 2011. The team I go for in the Rugby World Cup is the All Blacks.

I liked team 4 because was they had the best movies. A man called George Nepia who was a former all black had the dream to become an All Black. He managed to live the dream. It was cool that he became an All Black.

Motat



Guess where room 14 and room 13 went to. On Wednesday we went on our trip to Motat .We went to a class room where we ate in. We were all squished in.

Our first activity was the Tactile Dome. We went in and the instructor asked us some questions and told us some rules. When we took off our shoes he told us to choose 4 people to go into the Tactile Dome with. It was pitch black and I heard voices echoing next to me. Someone said, " Hold my hand! Hold my hand!" That sounded freaky. On my way out we sat on the ground putting on our shoes.

Next we went to play video games. I was playing street fighter with Paris. It was just the same as Superbowl. After that we went to play some of the car games but one had a broken steering wheel so it was too hard to control.

After that we went to the mirror maze and I saw Junior run into the wall. That was funny! I went through the mirror maze twice and the walls looked deceptive to me. I could see heaps of me in the reflections so it was hard to see where to go to get out.

Finally we went back to have lunch. We waited for a bit then went to the class room in the top floor. We looked at the lots of different inventions. The first one was the vacuum cleaner. We also looked at the old phones and cameras and an old typewriter. There was also a keyboard.

For our final activity we looked all around the rest of the museum. We went to the phone place. There were heaps of old phones. There were these phones where you could hear someone talking on the other side of the room.We went to the game place and I was playing in the earthquake cafe.The lights were turning off and on and it was shaking and shuddering.

At the end of the day we went back to the classroom before we went on the bus back to school. We had free time on our net books. It was a tiring day but it was I really enjoyed it.

Swimming!

When I got into the pool I pushed my self off the wall. I was kicking furiously and doing steady strokes to the end. When I got to the end I was exhausted and drained. As I got to the end I swallowed a gulp of water and started coughing and spluttering. I got out and felt a shock of cold.Then I went to the changing room and it was embarrassing. After that we were waiting the teacher to come. Then we went back to class and had lunch.
