gymnastics Waikowhai Primary School

GYMNASTICS A couple of weeks ago we started Gymnastics.  Gymnastics was really cool at the start because we played stuck in the mud and octopus for a warm up. During the lesson we had to do a hand stand But if we could not do a hand stand we could do bunny hops. Doing some bunny hops was so fun because we jumped of the bench. There was other things to do like death jump,wall hand stand , bunny hops and skipping.  My favourite was when we did hand stand because we bunny hoped around the hall . The thing I didn't like was when we were doing skipping because the girls do it too much and it was annoying.

A few weeks ago we had athletics on Friday. Everyone got in to their age groups for the day and we started. There were so many activities like high jump,long jump,sprints,shot put and The 400 meter run. The activities that I like are 400 meter run,high jump and shot put. Shot put is my favourite because I am really good at it. I love athletics day because we get to dress up in our house colours and we can were bandannas for our house group . The four house groups are kea,tui,ruru and pukeko . My group is kea and that is red, pukeko is green, tui is yellow and ruru is blue. I love that our age group cheers each other on. The best event was the house relays because some people were chosen to run for our house groups in different age groups . Everyone tried to behave so that there age group could win ice blocks . The Teachers give points on our sheets to see who wins The teachers give points for behaviour , how you change from activity to activity and cheering each other on. At the end t…
In August I had a holiday and went to Australia. The first thing that we did when we got there was shop at the mall called Harper town. Harper town is a small mall in Australia that we got our new things like my shoes and my Cav's basketball. I really liked the mall but it was really small and it was way too hot. The next place I went to was the arcade in hyper dome. The arcade in hyper dome  is really cool and the one game I wanted to play was called Wangan and it was my favourite game because you can challenge other people like adults and kids. The first thing I did was buy a card from the machine so that I could be ranked in the game and get cars that I could keep on the card. I got ranked around c. I am glad to be back because it has not rained ever since I was there and I like the cold sometimes. My sleeping schedules were different. I slept when it was 2 o'clock in New Zealand and 12 in Australia.

Hauraki Installation art

For our art show we made a house full of rubbish and the idea of this is.... would you put rubbish on your furniture and in your house? So we made a roster of when the classes are coming to watch our slide show. Everyone got a class to present there slide show and me and my partner worked out who had which slides and who had to talk in front of the class first. I was talking the loudest because I was sick and everyone before us was quiet.
