Athletics post


Posted by whitetail101 | Posted in Athletics | Posted on December 7, 2011

WALT: Reflect on our learning
on monday we had athletics it was at massy university
when we got there was a huge track long jump high jump shot pot discus javelin and house relays
first we went and sat in our houses and years and ebony told us how the day was planed out
me and the year 5s went to javelin the  In the year 5s where Ethan, Reif , Jack, James, Jaden ,Eli and
 Jakob. there were two types of javelin vortex and some long spongy things I went first with Ethan. We both had vortexes.
Ethan threw first it was pretty long but I just bet him. when the rest had gone my one was still the longest I won. then It was long jump. I am really good at long jump and I won again! and when I  jumped  there was a guy at the other side of the pit and he took a picture of me and I got in the NEWS PAPER.
After that we went back to our houses  for  brunch. then after that we did high jump sprints and hurdles. I came first in all of those as well.after lunch we had the final two shot put and discus I was so nervous because was dying to try and win everything. the balls we quite light but it got heavier every time you threw it.
I threw last and just got in front of james who was first then we went on to round two. nearly everyones throw didn’t move up or down. then it was on to round three! I was so nervous I nearly peed. This time I was first I threw as hard as I could the ball passed the flag that marked my other one. I WON. Then we went onto the final one. Discus. Now I was really really really really NERVOUS . Because I  knew I sucked at discus I didn’t even really new how to throw it correctly . when it was my turn my first two went out and my last one didn’t go far at all. I came 4th!  was gutted. But at least I came first in in everything else. Now was the most exciting part of athletics house relays!!!!!!!!!!!!
we had Hunter Tane  Coby and Nick for the relays kiwi won last year and I knew we would win again
3..2..1 GO! Hunter gave us I great starting then he passed it to tane he ran it up two coby and then ran as fast as he could up to the teachers all the teachers we head two head Lou was in the lead but Nick just got in front and won it for kiwi! ( Cant wait intel next year)

Seed 2 table ( Ross)


Posted by whitetail101 | Posted in seed 2 table, term 4 | Posted on November 29, 2011

WALT: Reflect on our learning
for the last week of the term we went to ross intermediate. The menu was ..

  • Stuffing balls
  • chicken meatballs
  • etonmess
  •  mini hunza pies and pavlova
we walked to ross when we got to school when we got there, there where 6 mini kitchen in one big kitchen so each group got a little kitchen. In each kitchen there where a micro wave a stove oven table chopping board and knife  forks and plates. The best part of going to ross that it was all cooking and that we got to do everything self directed and this time we got to work with meat
three things I learnt was  how to work self directed in the kitchen and know when the meat is cooked.when we had finished the cooking we put out the table with plates and cutlery. The first thing I ate was the stuffing balls it was plain but then the herbs gave it a zing of flavor. the second thing I ate was the chicken meatballs, they were a little sweet but I enjoyed it. Then it was the mini hunza pies honestly I didn’t like them but they looked really good they had a pastry out side and in the middle there where lots of rice and herbs and it looked really good.The one thing  that I am proud of is working independently
