Rugby League session

Room 22 had taken part in Rugby League yesterday.As we walked to the courts we happened to walk pass it because Ms Tito told us to line up but we scattered out like scrabbled eggs.

Then we all saw Sio Siua Taukeiaho from 2011 Vodafone Junior Warriors Squad.The first drill we did was zig zagging round the outside of the cone but we could only go 1 at a time.Henry started of for us and as Henry ran passed and he stepped ran down the pass and touched the line.When it was my turn I was shivering with excitement we got about 2 turns then moved on to the next game.

It was simile to the zig zag game but people where standing next to the cones to make it hard to see.When we went through the cones we cheated a couple of times but we didn’t care.

We played one more game you kicked it and try get the nearest person out or kick and caught.Every time a ball came next to me I moved but then Lepa got me out and I was like oh.Then we played 1 more time more and more people got and it was only Me,Annexe and Maree then Annexe just got Destiny out.

Last week on Thursday the year 7’s & 8’s all went to Tamaki College for the science roadshow to learn about science and it will help us with our topic Bigger,Better,Stronger Faster.

Before we left Ms Tito had split us into 6 groups and I was in Lepa’s group but there were three other people Kaiden,Annexe and Emilee. We lined up into three beautiful straight lines.

When we got there we had to find a seat and watched half of the show.As the show continued it was getting more interesting because Paul and Jan showed us some cool chemical's that were not to be played with.Then Paul burnt something and the fire went straight through.

Then Paul and Jan said we could have a little look around.The first thing I spotted was the walking piano it was pretty cool because when you walked on it the sound of the piano you could actually hear it and the person who put that together was really nice.

Waiting for the next show it was all about sound,sense and taste.Did you know that we have 10,000 taste buds.We were waiting for the winner of the roadshow prize and it was Awhina and Angelea.

What I liked about the Science roadshow was the inventions.

For the last 2 weeks our whole senior block have been going swimming down at the GI pools.We went at 1.55 or 1.15 at lunch time when the bell nearly went Ms Tito told us to get ready and put our togs on.Then we had to walk down to the pools with room 20 but some people got left behind because they were not in the right place at the right time.

Miss Dempester was my swimming teacher in the big pool.First we had to do 4 laps of free-styling.We went one at a time so we didn't crash into one another so Miss Dempester told the fast people to go first.Just because it was the last day of swimming I thought we would have free time but no we had to do 5 laps then we had free time for 7 minutes or more.

I think swimming was a great opportunity because we need to learn how to swim and survive the seas and if was free too.
