Rugby Competition

Today I chose to go to the Rugby inter-school competition also at the competition there was a rippa rugby girls team. We went to the Dunkirk reserve across our school to compete, our games were 20 minutes long. Our first match was against Glen Taylor school. There school was really hard because they had really big people in there team. We kicked off the ball and we rushed really quickly to get it but unfortunately they got it before we could get to the 10 meter line. Most of us tried going for there legs and it only worked sometimes. 10 minutes have past then Glen Taylor had scored a try the scores were 17 - 10. Then after that match we had a bye so we were training for our next match. The next school was against Glen Innes school. Glen Innes school wasn't that hard as Glen Taylor because we kept stepping and running very fast but then one person took the ball off of us but then we got it back and we scored a try by Jullian. But before Jullian scored a try someone ran through all of us and scored. Our third game was against glen brae, Glen Brae wasn't quite hard because most of us were spreading out we made our tackles. Unfortunately they scored a try before we could chase them done. After they kicked the ball to us Lyric caught it and ran very fast to score a try and he did. The scores were 12 - 10. Our final game was against Tamaki Primary. Tamaki was a really hard school to beat because most of their team mates looked like people from college and also most of us were afraid to make the tackle because we knew that they would just ignore us and just run straight through most of us. We all had a fantastic day and thank you to Mr Oglivey, Mrs Caroline and Mrs Ally.

Today for maths I chose to play transum to help out with my times tables. The transum game I was playing today was called Tables conga. Tables conga is a game where you had to collect the right numbers that was in the 7 times tables. This was a really tricky game because their were lots of bots trying to stop me. If it touched one of them I had to start again. I had to start again nearly 4 times because I couldn't find the right number and the because of the bots trying to stop me from collecting them. The easy thing was their was bushes their to protect me from the bots trying to get me.

Cross Country

Today our entire school has been doing cross country. For cross country we had to do it across the road from our school at the Dunkirk reserve. The cross country challenge has been a very difficult thing because we had to do 5 laps while the other kids did 1, 2, 3 and 4 laps. When Mr Johnston clapped the the wooden blocks together we ran really fast because some other people are faster then us and we had to catch up to them but I just jogged with my other friends. It was really hard because I kept getting tired while passing every checkpoint. The first checkpoint is up a hill which made us really tired because that hill was quiet steep. I done 2 laps already and I started to get a stitch while I was jogging. The hardest thing was to keep calming of my breathing but at the same time I really wanted to come first to go to the cross country inter school but when I was crossing the finish line I cam 7th.

A coalition means a brief alliance for a combined action to form a government and to find out who will become the new prime minister of Auckland. A coalition is mostly used to join parties e.g Green and Labour can come together to make a coalition. We also found out who is our MP for our local community. Our MP for our community is Denise lee. Denise lee is in the National political party.

E Book Day

E book day is on 18th of September and is celebrated for modern story telling to find more information go onto the website Read a E book. We use a website called Tamaki Overdrive to read books online instead of just reading them in real life. The book I am reading today is called Coyote America. This book is scientific story I have been reading. The thing I like about this book is it gives information where Coyote's come from such as Atlanta. There was other sections of books I could'v of read but I chose this one because Coyote's are very interesting to know about. #EBOOKLOVE
