Non-Stop Cricket

On Thursday, class 11 and 12 lined up to play non-stop-cricket. We went down to the field and it was already set up.

I was batting first, I was ready to make the ball fly. My first hit… well, it only went one meter. But then my next try it went FLYING! It was accelerating in the air and I sprinted back and forwards so I could get points for my team. I was energetic so I could run very very fast.

Then I was fielding next, I saw a ball in the air, but it was far from me, and it almost bonked someone on the head. Another one went straight past me, Deavay and I were racing for it. Deavay got there first and grabbed it, I almost risked stumbling for nothing. I was a little sad because I couldn’t get a ball.
Non-stop cricket was pretty cool, I didn’t know I would like cricket. And I want to do it again.



Today I went to athletics with class 11 and 12. When we got there, some other teachers were there too.

I was throwing first, I flung the sock through the air and it bashed into the ground next to the cone. Then Aymon’s turn was up and he thrusted the ball. Accelerating in the air the ball hit the ground, our team got second place for that round! After Deavay’s turn, it was Bethan’s turn to throw, I was shouting “go Bethan go Bethan!” And she boosted the sock in the air.

Basketball was next, we were split into two groups. When it was my turn, I threw the ball, and it missed, better luck next time! After everyone else's turn, I threw it again, but it missed, some people are not good at basketball okay? Then we got in a line to go to the next activity.

Bag Jumps were last, I prounced in the air to the cone, went round it, and came back. Then it was another person’s turn. My turn came up again and I thought “second time's a charm!” But then I fell over, must of been third time's a charm.

After the bag jumps, we all went back to class, I like athletics, but I want to go to morning tea to play with my friends and be happy.

Immersion Assembly

On Monday, Pt england went to an immersion assembly. I was excited about what our topic was for term 4. Our topic was about the animal that was extinct about 67 million years ago, the dinosaur.

Team 1.
Team 1 was my favorite movie out of all of them. It was a movie about the zoo and animals. They also did a karaoke challenge with the song roar. I liked this one because my favorite song was roar and I like the zoo.

Team 2.
Team 2 was funny, the teachers were running away from dinosaurs. They were just pictures, not in real life. If you thought it was in real life then you're crazy. I liked their movie because it was very creative.

Team 3.
Team 3 also known as my team. My team did a movie about disco dinosaurs, here are some of the names. Bossaraptor, Muscleosaurus, Karakaraptor and Manosaurus. There were more, but I can't remember their names. It was the best because they were dancing to the music and they were playing peek-a-boo at the start. This team was my second favourite.

Mr Burt
Mr Burt clapped to the last team and then played his own movie about a parrot that didn’t adapt.
I can’t tell you that story because I forgot all about it. After the movie, Mr Burt announced the winners for the blog post challenge. Surprisingly I was one of them, and I won a movie voucher!

The immersion assembly was awesome, I loved it to bits. I think that I will have a good term learning about dinosaurs. Because everyone loves dinosaurs.

My Holidays.

The holidays are nearly over and I did some really exciting things that I want to share.

Visiting my Grandma

The first exciting thing I did was go to my Grandmas house.  It was a two hour drive so we needed to pack a few things for our trip.  When we went we saw lots of cars and went on the motorway.  After a few minutes of driving we came to McDonalds.  My Mum bought me a Cheeseburger and fries to eat while we were driving.  Me and my brother were chomping on our food while we were driving.  I got a little bit carsick when I was finishing my burger in the car. 1 hour later we arrived.

While I was at my Grandmas house I played with my cousins.  We were having fun and then we got to have a very special buffet lunch.  I got to make spongecake with Grandma and it was yummy.  Grandma and Grandad took us for lots of walks and I got to walk their dog.  We played lots of board games like Beatle, Candyland, Tri-ominos and Topple.  We stayed at Grandmas for three days and it was fun.

The Sleepover

On Saturday my cousins came over to have a sleepover with me.  We played Guess Who and Trivial Pursuit.  We also played hide and seek and tag around the house which was very noisy.  We all went to Denny's for dinner and I got a giant oversize hot dog and an Orbits of Oreo sundae.

The Zoo

The next morning we went to the zoo.  I wanted to see rabbits but there were none.  I did get to see my second favourite animal, guinea pigs.  I also saw meerkats which was pretty cool.  The elephant was putting dirt on himself and spraying water.  I liked the giraffe but they were a long way away.  We went to the Tarantula because that was what I also wanted to see most.  But sadly when we looked into the glass cage there was no sign of it.  Then we went to the zoo playground for a bit and I wanted to go back to see if I could find it with my dad.  When we looked back in the cage we shined a little bit of light in it and saw the Tarantula legs sticking out from under the log.  I was very happy because I really wanted to see it and I did.

I've had a good holidays but I really want to see my friends so I'm looking forward to going back to school on Monday.
