Team 5 Challenge

Yesterday there was a team 5 challenge held at the bottom field for our whole senior block.Every teacher had a cool challenging game prepared for us.

As we walked down to the field and I saw Mr Harris get already and prepared.Then Ms T pulled out a couple of ball and then there hoops already set up I thought we were throwing balls into the hoops and I said to myself “Its going to be easy”!But as soon as Ms T brag out the sling shot I melted down.“Its going to be double trouble”.It was my turn to go up but I was nervous and people might have laughed at me in a mean way so I missed my turn.Then after a couple of times seeing another people do it I didn't realize how much fun it looked so as I was walking to go have a turn but it was time to rotate.

Our second game we played was partnering up tying a rope round your leg and walking with a spoon and tennis ball.So as soon as Mr Harris told us to partner up Emilee and I did.When it was our turn we tied the rope around then I held the spoon and tennis ball.Ready,set,go we went off like two slow snails.I dropped the spoon and ball a couple of time and fell over a few times and it hurt.Then the winner out of our class versed one another it was funny watching some of them fall.

My most favourite game was Mrs Nua’s because it involved water.

I have never played Badminton before so I was curious to try something new. On Thursday Morning Room 22 was first to go into the hall to practice how to play Badminton.

At first we kicked off with Laureen inter gusting herself to us.Then we got straight into controlling the shuttle with our badminton sticks.Laureen said always keep focus on the shuttle and always hit it gently then as soon a I looked down I lost my concentration I was worried that I wouldn’t get the hang of it be the end of this lesson.

My favourite activity that I like the most was practice how to hit the shuttle under your legs and hit it back to your partner. At first when I saw Laureen and Charm controlling it and to me it looked Easy-Peasy but trying it and learning how to hit it David and I failed trying to hit it but when Laureen come over to help us and Laureen told David and I that we were hitting it to hard.Then I said to myself this will be a challenge for me 3 shoots at less.

What I really liked about Badminton was controlling the shuttle with your badminton stick and focusing on the shuttle and not looking down.
